Shooting straight

CTV: Tory insider issues on-air apology to the GG

Pretty straightforward apology. Is it sincere or is Flanagan playing to the "moderate centre?" I've interviewed him many times over the years and found him to a good and honest subject, outspoken at times no doubt, but never coy or dishonest. Generally, I've found that if he doesn't want to comment on something he has said or written in the past, he doesn't talk around it, but simply tells you that he stands by what he has said, or flat out says that he doesn't want to speak on the matter, or--as was the case when he was adviser to the PM--he doesn't return phone calls, which used to drive me nuts.

The man was shooting a shot across the bow of the Leftist G.G.

The apology was pro forma, but the GG has been put on notice not to meddle.

All in all, a good move!
