That's just unacceptable!

Unacceptable political discourse:

″Honourable senators, I was disappointed to see that our dynamic young Premier in Prince Edward Island, Robert Ghiz, has climbed into bed with the Premier of Newfoundland and Labrador, and honourable senators know what a grotesque scene that is. Do honourable senators know what happens when two politicians climb into bed together? One of them comes out on top and I am afraid that when one is in bed with Danny Williams he will come out on top and I would hate to see where that will leave P.E.I. in the end.″

Acceptable political discourse:

″They shafted us on the Upper Churchill but they are not going to shaft us on the Lower Churchill, I can guarantee you.″

″We should not be jumping in bed with one group to the disadvantage of the other or vice versa.″

″That's how things have worked for us over the years, and we've got shafted as a result of it.″

″That was the reason people went to the polls and said that we have had enough of being raped here in this Province. That is why people wanted a new direction.″

″I tell you, there is nobody in this House, in this Province today who was as proud as I was when the Premier got up and spoke on what we were going to do. I tell you, for too long our resources were being raped.″

″We will never allow anyone to take our resources again, to rape us of our resources again. We stand for what is right for Newfoundland and Labrador. Our Premier stands for what is right for Newfoundland and Labrador.″

″Do not let Stephen Harper turn your focus onto a green shift in his attempt to turn your focus away from the Conservative’s blue shaft.″
