Advanced Education Minister Andrew Wilkinson’s recent outburst of clucking like a chicken at one of the NDP MLAs in the legislature was unusually shocking and boorish even by B.C. political standards.
This behaviour was especially disgraceful coming from someone who is a Rhodes scholar and is supposedly one of the intellectual power-houses of the B.C. Liberal government.
The incident indicates there may be at least some truth in that old joke: You don’t have to be a Rhodes scholar to behave like an arrogant fool but it certainly helps.
