Bafflegab meant to deflect responsibility

The B.C. government elected members find themselves in a predicament that they brought on themselves by their ineptness in dealing with government in-house spending.

So let the blame games begin between the political parties, to deflect responsibility for their failure. The red herrings are evident in reported statements like “no need for a wood splitter as we have no wood-burning capability”, or”no need for a splitter, we have people hired to mow lawns and split wood.”

No reference to free liquor and disappearing truckloads. Bafflegab meant to deflect the responsibility for oversight of government spending falls directly on our elected members of the legislature.

The oversight committee over government spending appointed by the house obviously was not monitored by the members of the legislature.
