Subverting Democracy -- Tory Style

Step One: Pick a fight with the agency investigating your party, on the day before parliamentary hearings on the scandal, and hope the other parties are stupid enough to fall for your antics.
Step Two: Pull out your "How to Screw With Committee's Manual"
Step Three; Quickly introduce a motion connected with your ginned up "controversy".
Step Four: Talk until the clock runs out.

You have to hand it to the Tories. They may not know how to run a country, but they sure know how to manipulate one.

Update: Bravo to the Globe editorial writers for pointing out the obvious. Our Prime Minister is a thug. And while I am at it, shame on Jack Layton for going along with this. There was a time when the NDP was willing to stand against things like the War Measures Act. I guess those days are over.

Update 2: This is what Harper is trying to foster and encourage. This is what the NDP needs to say no to and damn the electoral consequences.

Update 3: Kady O'Malley rightly heaps scorn on all the parties for this fiasco.
