Jeff Simpson on Danny Williams

Jeffrey Simpson's Globe column for a Friday morning is worth the read.

Danny Williams and Hebron.

"The bottom line: Newfoundland needs Hebron, if not now, then reasonably soon. That prospect does not appear likely."

The only bit where Simpson is off-base: his claim that there is no one criticizing the Premier for his decisions. It used to be that way, but with all that has gone on, there are more people questioning Williams and doing so openly. There's nothing wrong with that - except in Danny's own mind.

The thing Danny needs to watch for is when the question becomes: "How do we get rid of this guy?"
