First up, Platty does a little research and rightfully concludes that the MP for Bearded Bitter Bikers has no leg to stand on when lecturing others on the importance of voting. Maybe we should follow Garth’s rationale and make sure that all those Liberals lose the privilege that they’re not too keen on using. Just a thought.
Next, The Garth has been in a huff this week over Conservative leaflets being mailed out to residences that are covered by the House of Commons budget for MPs to mail out resources to 10% of a riding. While I think there is merit in exploring the relevance of this sort of programme in a day and age when we have the internet among other handy resources to get the word out to constituents, Turner and the Red Star fail to mention that the Liberals are doing the exact same thing. I’ve received periodic messages from Stephane Dion in my mail (I live in a swing riding that is currently held by a Conservative) attacking the government and playing up all the blessings a Liberal government would bring. The mailing originate s from the House of Commons — specifically the Office of the Leader of the Opposition. Garth, you haven’t been naughty with your ten-percenters, have you?
