Three more for the road

This is the type of thing that gets me annoyed.

No, not the fact that the Premier hires three new employees and refuses to disclose the cost to the taxpayer, although that bugs me too.

What really bugs me, is the sheer hypocrisy of it all.

Just last week, the Bermuda Sun published an article declaring that Premier Brown was going to get tough over automobiles.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, the Premier hires a Press Secretary and a Chief of Staff, who in addition to fat undisclosed paychecks get a car each.

And the Speaker of the House was recently given a car after being snubbed on a pay raise.

That's three more totally unnecessary vehicles on the road. Everyone sacrifices but the political elite.
