“Tory clique” rears its head again

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: Nigel Wright broke ethics rules: re­port (May 26)

When read­ing this par­tic­u­lar ar­ti­cle, a Grade 6 his­tory les­son comes to old man’s mind: The Fam­ily Com­pact. Or shall we say, Gen­tle­manly Cap­i­tal­ism? It is still done, in this and per­haps in many other sit­u­a­tions.

Es­pe­cially those in the Se­nate! Af­ter all, the Se­nate is de­rived from The House of Lords. Oh, yes! Let us set up some trivia from the CRA, and who bears the costs when a member of Par­lia­ment is elected or ap­pointed, and then hav­ing to pay the up­keep of two or more res­i­dences?

So the $90,000 was paid, and Mike Duffy? It was an er­ror of his ways. Many of us have been won­der­ing whether Nigel Write de­pleted his own bank-ac­count to do this? Oh well, that’s re­ally none of our busi­ness! (Or is it?) To quote Lord Durham: “a petty cor­rupt in­so­lent Tory clique.” Car­lyle Or­lando Franklin, Hamil­ton
