No Half Measures in Newfoundland Parliament

Newfoundland Politics:

[Newfoundland Premier Danny] Williams was asked: "There was a time when, late in a session, some legislators would be half drunk. Has that improved?"

The premier answered: "No, now they're completely drunk."

The retort by the opposition is less funny, but truly fanciful:

"I've never, ever evidenced any liquor being consumed inside or outside of the house of assembly," he said.

Wouldn't you know, just when things were looking up for Newfoundland...
