The day of reckoning

News reports are that the Premier is calling on federal members of parliament to vote against the federal budget, regardless of what they would do in concert with their caucus.

Hardly surprising, that news, given that the partisan plants were out in force today issuing the call and at least one source of constancy for the Premier even generated a little graphic to illustrate the point.

So which of the federal members is indebted to danny Williams for their seat?




Three’s a no-brainer since he’s been lined up with the premier since his days as a provincial member of the legislature.  On top of that his party is already committed to voting down the budget.

But One and Two?

Their debt is being called due, with interest.

Will they pay up?

Stay tuned.
