Having heard it many times does not make something true. Suggesting that conservative leader Erin O’Toole’s hero is the guy in England with the bad haircut seems ludicrous. Brit PM Boris Johnson is the least appealing person you can imagine any savvy politician wanting to emulate.
As it stands, the voters in the United Kingdom have yet to realize what a disaster they have wrought. They are now in worse shape than they were before Brexit. They are now the destitute bums standing on the street corners of Europe with hand- lettered signs stating the obvious of their condition.
And if Canadians elected an O’Toole conservative government, they would be in worse shape.
Take a look at the inflation rates that are starting to really worry Canadians. What do you think a conservative government would do to alleviate that situation? Have you been shopping in your favourite grocery store recently? Did you read about the rising profits those stores are making at your expense?
And what about those bastards in the oil business? You are now paying them 30 per cent more for gasoline. Why? Because the government lets them. And that snowballs and raises the prices of almost anything you buy.
Do you really think a conservative government will stick their finger in the dike to stem the money flow into the pockets of the rich?
Do you really think the conservative party is your friend? The only friends the conservatives acknowledge are the very rich and the businesses that feed them more donations so they can continue to lie to you.
And these federal conservatives are hardly the kindly father-figures of past progressive conservatives. Sorry, our friend, former premier Bill Davis of Brampton, Ontario, is dead. When you start to see the “shit-storm of social-media postings” promised by conservative communications advisers Topham Guerin, you will see what we mean. They did the job in the U.K. for Boris Johnson. Let’s see how Canadians react?
