I’ve always wondered what our politicians would do if no one at all showed up to vote.
Liberal – 0
NDP – 0
Green – 0
Bloc Quebecois -0
Would anything change? Politicians just do what they usually do. Come in late, meet for an early but long lunch, have an extra long coffee break to make up for all their hard work and then drag themselves home after an exhausting day of slaving for the Canadian people. Whew, I got tired just writing about it.
Next after their grueling work schedule of 130 days per year, our MP’s must rest, some even feel a need for massages. What?…wouldn’t you be sore after taking care of all that important business?
Conservatives Are In…
Stephen Harper has finally got a majority government. This should be about as exciting as watching paint dry. He’s for lower taxes and small government and all that great stuff so I guess all the MP’s will be striking this year as they face pay cuts and a work schedule similar to everyone else’s.
Why does Harper have to look like every accountant I’ve ever known?
Green Party Got One MP
For the first time in Canadian history a Green Party MP gets into the House of Commons. She’ll save money by watering all the plants in her office all by herself. I wonder if you’re allowed to smoke medicinal marijuana in Ottawa?
NDP Is The Official Opposition
In a majority government the NDP gets to do nothing except keep their seats warm and mouth off loudly whenever the Conservatives want to pass legislation. Then the Conservatives vote and win for the next 4 years or so. Sounds like fun!
Whatever you are doing, you need to stop because people hate you. You just got spanked big time. Try again later.
The entire party is an oxymoron. We don’t want to be part of your country so we’ve elected all these representatives to join the government that we don’t want to be a part of. Bad idea, and now it’s finally dead. Or not dead.
It isn’t that Quebec can’t be its own country, of course they can. Liechtenstein is a country for God’s sake and it’s 160 square kilometers and 35,000 people.
The problem is every time Quebecers talk about becoming a country it hurts their economy. Companies are unlikely to set up operations there as they wait for the Great Canadian Civil War.
What’s Comes Next?
The Conservatives wrote down some stuff they want to do for us. Am I the only one who notices that politicians and astrologists seem to use the same kind of phrasing?
