Cabinet shuffle imminent ? The picture forming at Queen's Park is of a Premier's office in disarray with a very-very tired leader prone to myriad flip-flops, ubiquitous aim/shoot-inside-the-circle finger-pointing, better-late-than-never dud-staff departures, and the prospect of a major cabinet re-jig. What are we hearing ? For starters, the blame game is well entrenched. With it, the rise in suspicions, the whisper campaigns, the lack of trust in insta-decisions in-the-making, and the knee-capping. The scene is unpleasant, to say the least. It is acknowledged the government's messaging these past 14 months has been a disaster. Perhaps the reason why key comms adjuncts have been replaced, crazier things have happened. As for the cabinet itself, look for the shuffling of Mulroney, Lecce, Bethlenfalvy, Jones & MacLeod. Add the possible departure of Fullerton & return of no less than Rod Phillips, the noted Caribbean beachcomber and potential successor to Doug Ford, if he can keep from tripping over himself politically. Or so go the whispers. Worse, like fresh roadkill, opposition buzzards are circling the mess, poking and pulling at weakened sinew & spilled entrails. It's not a pretty picture. Developing.
