Support The Zzzzzz

What would we do without Rob Anders? Or, as he is referred to in this article, "Old Snoozy". I wonder if on top of being tired, he was emotional too?

The Memory Hole

Lest we get swept up in the Conservative narrative that this is a fiction, cooked up in the last week by the opposition. I take you back to election day, May 2, 2011. Note in particular, the first paragraph.

In Fairness, This Is Nonsense

I have to say that I find the following paragraph highly offensive:
Also in fairness, the reluctance of the Tories to endorse a wide-ranging inquiry might simply be evidence of a lesson well-learned from watching the results of the Liberals' Gomery inquiry into the sponsorship scandal.
Why is it fair for the Tories to rule out an inquiry because the one the Liberals called, sunk the Liberal government? That is, not to put too fine a point on it, illogical. Think about it for a second. If the Conservatives were the virgins they are claiming to be, they would be grasping onto the idea of an inquiry with both hands. That way, when they were found to be completely blameless, they could use that fact to bludgeon the opposition to death. They have every reason to be afraid of an independent judicial inquiry, but fairness has nothing to do with it.
