Today we learn that Paul Martin doesn't want to fight an election anytime soon:
Mr. Martin's spokesman, Scott Reid, said Friday that “the challenge that this Liberal government issues to Stephen Harper and the Conservatives today is this:Well isn't that rich. The Liberals don't want the other political parties to take advantage of the situation? They'ld never do such a thing themselves would they? Oh the nerve...
“Will the leader of the Opposition give Canadians a guarantee that he will let Justice (John) Gomery report his findings – that he will not force voters into an election until they have the answers that this Prime Minister has said that they deserve?”
Judge Gomery's report is due toward the end of this year.
And I especially love when Reid says that the opposition should wait so that voters can 'have the answers that this Prime Minister has said that they deserve'. Really. Well how about this? Paul, head down to the nearest news outlet and start spilling it. If your concern is making sure Canadians know the truth of what you've been up to then isn't that the easiest solution?
Shit, even after all of this they still have the nerve to make out like they, and they alone, are looking out for Canadians best interests. It is beyond laughable.
And to finish off we have:
Mr. Reid insisted that the Prime Minister has no relationship to the scandal and is the best man to deal with it.See, he did it again! Paul Martin is a wire brush? What the f@#k does that mean!
“Paul Martin is the wire brush that will scrub clean this stain on Canadian politics,” Mr. Reid said.
“Stephen Harper is afraid of this, and therefore, it is he who is now talking about an election to pre-empt Justice Gomery. It is Stephen Harper who is calculating whether to put his personal political interest ahead of the wider public interest.”
Opposition parties have indicated that they will be polling in the next few days to see whether the scandal moves public opinion.
And to ensure the humour never ends, Reid says that Harper is afraid of the inquiry and wants to pre-empt it? What the bloody hell? Who takes these fools seriously?
I would love to have a one-on-one conversation with these guys just to find out what they think of the average Canadian. It would probably be pretty ugly.
