Gotcha politics seems to be the norm these days. Policy has left by the back door. An interesting issue has arisen about double dipping and it seems to have slapped the Sask NDP rather hard.
Ole' Link, New Double Dipper, this is not fair, he is entitled to his entitlements. It was his own NDP MLAs -- like Kevin Yates, Len Taylor, Kim Trew, Warren McCall, Ron Harper, Pat Atkinson and David Forbes -- who in 2008 (during debate on the Superannuation Act) railed on that the practice of ex-civil servants double-dipping on their pensions, after returning to work and drawing government salaries, needed to stop.
The issue is that the NDP in 2008 made a very big stink about double dipping. A huge issue for them. Now that one of their own, Glorious Leader, is receiving the very benefit they raised cane over are now silent. Typical NDP dogma, everyone is equal except some are more equal than others.
Myself, I could care less if he double dips, I know lots of teachers, nurses, executives etc. who do that. The issue is where is the consistency in policy
