Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams is showing his fellow premiers how one really plays hardball with the Feds.
Newfoundland Premier Danny Williams, escalating his battle of nerves with the federal government, said that Ottawa had no intention of settling a revenue-sharing dispute and had “dragged” him to talks in a bid to humiliate his province. Furious, he said that he wouldn't fly the symbol of a nation that was “slapping” his province in the face and on Thursday ordered the Canadian flags taken down.With the next federal election endlessly on the horizon, Paul Martin cannot afford to offend the province that granted his Liberal Party 5 out of their 7 parliamentary seats. One might say that Mr. Martin is stuck between The Rock and a Hard Place (heh).
UPDATE: I just tried out the Cojones Test myself and only scored a 40 out of 100.
