John Efford . . . roared down from <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on">Ottawa to <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">St. John's and issued his famous ultimatum to Danny Williams on Paul Martin's latest offer on the Accord: "Take it or leave it." Danny's comeback? "Let me answer Mr. Efford loud and clear. We will leave it, thank you very much." And the war with <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Ottawa rocketed upwards.<_o3a_p>


In 2004, Danny Williams, premier of <_st13a_state _w3a_st="on">Newfoundland and Labrador, hired veteran politico and popular radio talk-show host Bill Rowe to represent his province's interests in <_st13a_city _w3a_st="on"><_st13a_place _w3a_st="on">Ottawa. This memoir covers the eight months Rowe served with Premier Williams during what became widely known as the Atlantic Accord Crisis and a bitter, long-lasting feud between Williams and the top brass on Parliament Hill.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Propaganda Bill Rowe and Danny Williams chant "blame Ottawa" as though all the problems of NL can be laid at that door. This books lacks context, analysis, and creditability. NL went bankrupt long before it joined confederation. Williams had the good luck to be premier when off-shore oil took off. One day, a qualified historian will examine his leadership or dictatorship and expose the intimidation and nastiness at its core.
