ENJOY THE REST FROM SNOW AND COLD, COUNSELS THE BARD

WINTER SCOLD
(Warm and healthy 2021 to all)

It’s Boxing Day, the lawns are green,
Snow’s all melted from the scene.
The forecast warm for most next week,
Could see New Year in weather meek!
May days in late December!
Sunny skies to long remember.


Is this the Global Warming??
That’s banished winter’s storming,
More likely, winter’s wrath will roar
Before the summer’s at our door –
Enjoy the rest from snow and cold -.
Bring on the ‘Warming’ to winter scold.

OPINION POLL OVER-RATES INEFFECTIVE TORY OPPOSITION

Having survived in spite of themselves, in Opposition the Tories have been lazy and uninspiring.  The fact that it is summer, and the House of Assembly is closed, admittedly makes their job tougher, except that the Party’s manifest weakness is not a seasonal problem.

REMEMBERING CABOT MARTIN (1944-2022)

He was an exceptional person. A gifted intellect for sure; irascible and argumentative, too. What endeared him to many was not just that he was analytical and insightful, but that he was honest and forthright. He was a public policy wonk; resource policy interested him most. He loved to travel and read; people, with something to say, were always important.

GNL RUSHING INTO ANOTHER “SCHEME”: CABOT MARTIN

I must say that after the Muskrat Falls fiasco, I thought our government had finally learnt its lesson and would not to rush into another such scheme where calling it “green” was enough to suspend all critical analysis.
