Disdain for the Democratic Process?

The media and the opposition parties have blown this "story" out of proportion - and they are enjoying every moment of it.

The Premier didn’t throw the document at the Page. From my understanding he tossed the document over his shoulder which, unfortunately, happened to be also in the general direction of where the Page was still standing. I understand that it brushed her shoulder on its way to the floor.

So let’s be clear, he didn’t throw this document AT her. The Page herself has publicly said that he didn’t throw it at her.

So maybe the real issue might be whether or not the Premier needs to respond to his frustration in a more useful manner (don’t we all) but that doesn’t make for a very interesting news story now does it.
