The Excellent Humiliation of the Con Clown Pierre Poilievre
Once upon a time Pierre Poilievre was one of the loudest and craziest members of the Con regime. A political thug if ever there was one.
But we haven't heard a peep out of him since he won his fifth term by less than 2,000 votes.
However today the Commons was choosing a new Speaker and he couldn't help himself.
Even though the joke was lame, and only reminded us that his humiliation couldn't be greater.
For the voter suppression scheme he championed so virulently is about to be totally demolished.
The new Liberal government wants more Canadians to vote in elections and won't be reviving measures proposed by the former Conservative regime that critics said would have the effect of suppressing voting, the Prime Minister's Office said Wednesday.
Canadians who live and work abroad will get their vote back.
And Poilievre's Orwellian so called Fair Elections Act will be following it into the dumper.
Trudeau has previously promised to repeal parts of the Tories' Fair Elections Act, which tightened identification requirements for voters in Canada but which critics said would make it more difficult for some people to cast ballots.
After having failed so miserably...
And to make his humiliation complete so will Poilievre's career.
For where once his high profile position allowed him to suckle Stephen Harper...
And try to buy votes with OUR money...
Now he must stimulate himself, for he is only the shadow critic for the Treasury Board.
Which means that he'll be lucky to get a chance to speak once a month.
And of course once we reform the electoral system the Cons will be suppressed, and will never get anywhere near power again.
Heh heh heh.
How low the mighty have fallen.
Please give Pee Wee a big one handed round of applause.
As he peddles off to oblivion...
