A bit late to backtrack???

When the 2% pay raise for our MLA’s was announced, (please note, it was recommended by an independent board!!!!LOL) the leader of the opposition Olive Crane, promptly and publicly stated the increase was deserved. She went on to justify why she and others deserved a raise (she only makes approx $110.000 per year) explaining how hard she works and the long hours she puts in. Then yesterday she did a complete reversal saying the raise was not appropriate at this time of fiscal mismanagement. I was thoroughly disgusted when I heard her approving the raise in the first place. It clearly showed that politicians regardless of their party lines are just in this for the money. Does she really believe she works harder than our doctors,nurses, teachers or indeed our thousands of volunteers. Too bad Olive, you made a dreadful mistake with your greedy announcement, and its a bit late now to take it back. I have always been cynical about politicians but you just made me even more cynical.
Finally, I’d like to know where this “completely independent board” that approved the raise, came from.???? Did they just drop out of the sky? or suddenly appear out of the fog???? Or maybe, just maybe, were appointed by government.???? You and I know the answer to that one Eh!!!!
Grrrr Cheers and keep reading.
