Good with figures

Posted on Tue, Sep 18, 2012 at 10:13 AM

When it comes to finance and matters of cautious use of other folks money, I'm afraid the NDP just don't have it. Would someone who is more gifted than me kindly do some research and try to tot up just exactly how much money the Orange Menace have frittered away since they came to power? When we last had a real finance minister, one who actually went to skool n studied figures'n'fings cash like, we were in the shitter to the tune of $13.1 billion, he forecast that by the end of this year we'd be at $13.7 billion, then he quit, probably in disgust. We now have a finance minister who trained as a social worker, what kind of signal does that send out? I suspect her only qualification was she agreed with Dexter and so got lumbered with the job.
