Is Stephen Harper Losing His Grip?
As you probably know I have for a very long time been extremely worried about Stephen Harper's mental stability.
One moment he's his idea of a kitty loving Mr Nice Guy.
The next moment he's a monster.
So I must say I was very glad to see that Thomas Walkom is also worried.
There is a crazy, quiet air of desperation around Stephen Harper. On the surface, the Prime Minister is – as always – the personification of iron self-discipline. On television, he speaks in measured tones, his sentences deliberately interspersed with tight little smiles to suggest friendliness.
But the increasingly bizarre actions of his government suggest that this is a façade.
And that Connie is furious.
The most significant impression I have gotten from this book is that the other side of PM Harper is a true Mr. Hyde.
Nicholls says that Harper was so incensed over Reformers dissing his leadership bid that he asked Nicholls to write a memo to him saying that Nicholls believed that Manning supporters were trying to undermine him. Then he wanted Nicholls to leak that memo to the press. Nicholls refused.
Golly. Mr Kitty and Mr Hyde. Mr Harper and Mr Monster. Give me a crucifix or a garlic clove. It doesn't get better than that.
Or worse for Stephen Harper.
Oh boy. I can't believe it. The country is almost SAVED !!!!!
It could't happen to a Mr Nicer Guy. Now all I need to know is who will PAY for the damage?
And who will save the KITTENS?
