A very clever way to put it

September 19,2011

Dear Sir,

The front page story in Saturday's Royal Gazette states that the Government has hired a Canadian educational expert. I may be wrong, but I think that if you hire someone, then you have to pay them. Apparently this is not the case with this lady who is sought after by the entire world for her expertise. Surely there are other countries who could use someone with this amazing talent, together with her entourage, and pay millions for that opportunity.

Then I read the story more closely and found a very clever statement by the Minister for Education. Minister Smith states there will be no cost to the Ministry of Education for the services of this educational saviour. That's the key right there, which I interpret to mean that because the Ministry of Education will not be paying anything from its vote, that does not mean that Government funds will not find their way into the Adviser's bank account. If there is someone out their that believes the newspaper article, then please contact me as I have a lovely bridge for sale in Brooklyn, New York.
