Stephen Harper and the Great Getaway Tour
As I watched him drag himself wearily up the steps of his getaway plane, I could only imagine what Stephen Harper was thinking.
I've done it !!! I've made it to the plane !!! The caucus rebels can't get me now. And even Duffy can't follow me EVERYWHERE !!@#!
But sadly for Great Battered Leader I just KNOW that Old Duff and his Senate pals will find some way to keep him company eh?
And of course when he returns, the caucus rebels will be waiting. Because now it's getting serious.
Senior figures in the Conservative movement are warning that unless Stephen Harper moves his House Leader, Peter Van Loan, and the Government Whip, Gordon O’Connor, more MPs will follow the unlikely rebel, Brent Rathgeber, out of the caucus door.
The finger of blame has been pointed squarely at Mr. O’Connor, a former brigadier-general used to his orders being obeyed without question, and Mr. Van Loan, described by one Conservative as “the most reviled member of caucus.” But they are merely the enablers of a command and control structure where the word is written by the Great Helmsman and interpreted by the cadre of youthful Blue Guards in his office.
Now it's starting to look like a caucus REVOLUTION.
One with a Messiah like Brother Brent...
And one with a message Harper can't ignore: Do what we say, or lose your majority.
All it takes is for a group of about 10 of us to sit down with the Prime Minister and let him know what could happen. Tell him that we want changes in the way this place is run or we’re going to join Brent Rathgeber and sit as independents. You, sir, will be without your majority.
And to make matters worse, if that's possible, the MSM is now on a death watch.
At some point during the last few weeks, with the party riding at its lowest-ever in the polls under his leadership, the explosion of the Duffy-Wright affair and the resignation of one of his MPs, the switch flicked. The question for journalists is no longer whether Harper will be defeated, but when he will go. And when he goes, will it be by his own volition, in an election, or at the hands of his own party?
Which will probably make The Great Escape Tour of Europe look more like The Not So Great Farewell Tour eh?
And probably RUIN his photo-op with the Queen...
Which I'm sure you'll agree could be quite amusing, if we didn't have to pay such a horrible price.
Because now he's so DESPERATE to make a deal with the Europeans, he's preparing to sell us out. Again.
The Harper government has agreed to smooth the way for more takeovers of Canadian companies by European firms in one of several concessions during free-trade talks, sources tell The Canadian Press.
With Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Europe over the next week hoping to hammer out the remaining barriers to the ambitious deal, sources say Canadian negotiators have agreed to a provision to raise the threshold for reviewing foreign acquisitions from Europe to $1.5 billion.
Great eh? Welcome to Harperland, the official name of Little Canada.
Gawd. Can it only be two years since he was raving like a Fuhrerburger?
And telling us that thanks to his strong leadership Canada was BACK !!!!!!
Oh well. I guess it's true what they say eh?
In politics two years can be an ETERNITY.
For look at him now...
On the run, pursued by scandal, trying to lasso what's left of his party, and looking like a LOSER.
Not Mr Canada, NOT a Great Leader.
You know it's funny eh? I was out on the canal this afternoon, fishing with my buddy Seb and playing with my pet swan.
And it was kind of cloudy and cool.
Then I heard on the radio that Harper had left the country. And I kid you not, almost immediately the clouds parted. The sun came out.
And my Canada never looked more beautiful..
Yup. Brother Brent may be the Con Messiah. But I'm prophesying this eh?
Mike Duffy will be one of the stars of the Great Farewell Tour.
Stephen Harper is heading for oblivion.
And better days will soon be here..
