BUT LIBERAL VALUES XYLO!

(you’re right of course, but the ability to be a complete hypocrite without it weighing on the conciseness send to be a key weapon of the centrist/right.)

Tony McArdle is one of two commissioners sent in by the government after the authority said it may not balance its books. He and his colleague Brian Roberts are costing the authority £1,500 for every day that they work.
