Stephen Harper and the Scandalous Cons
Well there there they were today, driving through the streets of London, England, in the getaway limo.
John Baird and Stephen Harper doing their best to try to escape the Senate scandal.
But sadly for them the stench followed them everywhere, even into the British Parliament.
Earlier, in London, Harper delivered an address to British parliamentarians but the special moment may have been marred a bit afterwards when Baroness D’Souza, speaker of the House of Lords, raised the mess back in Canada’s Senate in Ottawa.
Thanking Harper for his speech, D’Souza induced a chorus of chuckles from British Lords and MPs when she said the upper chambers of Parliament in both countries are under pressure to reform.
And so did Duffy AND the police.
The RCMP has launched a criminal investigation into the actions of Nigel Wright, the prime minister’s former chief of staff, in connection with the Senate spending scandal that led him to give $90,000 to Sen. Mike Duffy.
And then tonight there was Pamela Wallin, going on the CBC to claim that she didn't mean to abuse the system. And she's sooooooooo sorry.
"I sign the documents, so I take responsibility," the former journalist and diplomat said. "I take full responsibility for this. I should have gone over it with a fine-tooth comb as anybody should and make sure, but I just didn't." "I was doing what I thought my job was — to not sit in Ottawa in an office, not sit in the Senate chamber always, but to be out there."
But that's what happens when you're trying to set an example for others eh?
And as if all of that wasn't enough to ruin Harper's day, then there was the strange case of Eva Adams.
Questions are being raised about how Elections Canada is handling MPs' campaign files after the agency refused to allow CBC News to see documents in the campaign file of Conservative MP Eve Adams.
After viewing the file of Conservative MP Eve Adams, it was clear that some correspondence was missing.
And the ghastly spectacle of Dean Del Mastro, his Parliamentary Secretary, blaming Elections Canada for his alleged case of electoral fraud.
And blubbering like a baby...
And who can blame him eh?
The Cons really are a sorry sight. Battered by one scandal after another, drowning in corruption.
No longer a real government, just an increasingly desperate cult going down with its depraved leader. Who can run, but cannot hide, and will not escape his fate.
Oh boy. I know I keep repeating myself. But I don't know what else to say.
It has been such a long struggle. And I'm so tired.
But soon it will be over.
And a better day is dawning...
