the Liberal Party is about to repay its entire debt of $ 2 million six months after the last election.A stunning reversal of fortunes in a very short period of time, and remarkable given that at this point we should have been at the tail-end of a long and draining leadership race that would be sucking-up all these donations instead.
Under the new National Director of the PLC, Rocco Rossi, the debt of the party will be fully repaid no later than mid-May, freeing troops liberal an important shot at a time when lead some to cause the holding of elections in the fall.

That ain't a bad place to be. Recommend this Post on Progressive Bloggers
