I got a confession to make, I love Paul Wells, he's right up there with John Barber on my list favorite political columnists.

He writes almost daily columns on politics (and sometimes on jazz - which bores me to death) on Maclean's website.

Today's has some great words about the Paul Martin team.

Here's a morsel:

Drew Fagan's piece this morning has a fascinating anecdote. Martin was planning a "British-style" tiny inner cabinet and a larger array of secretaries of state — until a guy from Tony Blair's office came by and said the system was fraught with problems. Three questions arise:
(1) Could you not figure out the problems with such a system without help from London?
(2) If you really thought it was a good idea, did one guy from London actually manage to change your mind?
(3) Why is this little psychodrama being allowed to find its way into the Globe?

If you have a chance, check out his previous entry as well (right below). The conclusion is sweet for us New Democrats.
