    Maybe the Conservatives need an alibi! cop: can you tell us where you were last night? Cons: we were all at the convention!Who would have thought to blow up all the liberals at the same time, crying shame it is!

    Remember, remember!
    The fifth of November,
    The Gunpowder treason and plot;
    I know of no reason
    Why the Gunpowder treason
    Should ever be forgot!
    Guy Fawkes and his companions
    Did the scheme contrive,
    To blow the King and Parliament
    All up alive.
    Threescore barrels, laid below,
    To prove old England's overthrow.
    But, by God's providence, him they catch,
    With a dark lantern, lighting a match!
    A stick and a stake
    For King James's sake!
    If you won't give me one,
    I'll take two,
    The better for me,
    And the worse for you.
    A rope, a rope, to hang the Pope,
    A penn'orth of cheese to choke him,
    A pint of beer to wash it down,
    And a jolly good fire to burn him.
    Holloa, boys! holloa, boys! make the bells ring!
    Holloa, boys! holloa boys! God save the King!
    Hip, hip, hooor-r-r-ray!

    You will find that a lot of people woke up to the fact that the Pretorian Guard didn't know best. Well, maybe not. That's foresight and introspection.

    And they figured trudeau was a better choice? Because that's what they got. But none of that makes any difference to who should be interim leader.

    Finley woulnd't be a bad choice. Chances are with the candidates we're looking at that it won't be a female who wins the leadership, and having a female interim leader may be good optics. And she's capable enough I think.

    Interim. Permanent. Old Stock elitist who knows best and scoffs at the base. We simply can't wait.

    There are a number of excellent online dictionaries that can help you with the difference between "interim" and "permanent". It's fairly significant. And all the 'base' wants is good leadership, fiscal responsibility and less social engineering or 'social experiments'.

    Again - if there's specific policies you'd like to see then put them out there. Maybe others will agree. But all this business of vague statements and cheezy terms like 'old stock' and 'elitist' will get you is another liberal gov't.

    No, i just know what i'm talking about. Interim and permanent are quite different. That's not 'best', that's just reality.
