Well as I'm sure you know, they say you can't trust a Con as far as you can see, or spit.
For they lie and cheat to win elections, and nothing they do is quite what it appears to be.
Now take a good look at that photo of the David Cameron, the British Prime Minister who is inflicting untold misery on the poor people of that country.
And then take a look at this one.
And yes it's the magic poppy !!!
Which needless to say Twitter had in full flower or full #poppygate.
The Downing Street social media team are just taking the piss now. #poppygate pic.twitter.com/Txb9IIwhIc— Stuart Robertson (@stupendous223) November 2, 2015
And so soon after #piggygate.
Seeing these tweets about David Cameron and I...just... pic.twitter.com/Scw5Wu0igG— Kevin Daly (@kevinddaly) September 20, 2015
But then they are Cons, they are hogs, and they are capable of anything.
And what makes poppygate so ironic of course, is that Cameron is a raving chicken hawk who has never seen a place he didn't want to bomb,.
And has always used war, veterans, and Remembrance Day for crass political purposes
As did Stephen Harper from the beginning to the end of his ghastly years in power. Talking up a storm, puffing out his belly or fluffing up his feathers.
And posing as a Great Warrior Leader, so he could try to portray the opposition as impotent and weak....
Or claim that only he could protect us from the terrorist hordes that wanted to behead us in our beds.
From the safety of his closet...
While shrugging off the horrifying toll of the war in Afghanistan.
After long refusing to disclose how many soldiers have killed themselves after serving in the Afghanistan war, the Canadian military released new figures late Monday that raises the suicide count to at least 59.
The suicide count is more than one third of the number of military members who died in the war. There were 158 military deaths in theatre during the 13-year NATO-led combat operation that began in 2001 and ended last year.
Trying to hide the brutal truth.
The Globe and Mail’s exposé about the suicides of 54 veterans of the Afghanistan mission is upsetting for any number of reasons, but none more so than for the fact that the federal government tried to keep these deaths out of the public’s sight. The details of some of the suicides had to be pried from the Department of National Defence as if they were state secrets;
And for most of his years in office waging war on our veterans in a most bestial and cruel manner...
Or betraying them in a manner beyond human understanding.
Or in the manner of cowards...
And the good news? The veterans fought back...
They helped mobilize the Anyone But Conservatives movement...
And they helped bring down the tyrant, and liberate our country.
I hope that Canadians never forget the history of that struggle, or what it cost so many...
Or who the Cons were...
And as we prepare to honour our fallen.
Never forget what they did to our veterans.
Or what they did to our country...
