To our dear Lord Black of Crossharbour...

...obvious sycophancy isn't going to get you your citizenship back either.

But, it's a glorious sentiment, brilliantly written, and the royal We quite agree.

Canary in the Mine

When the Tories announce funding for Via Rail(!), it is no longer possible to pretend an election isn't imminent.

Leaking the news that the leak is intentional

"The sources also said that Mr. Finley may actually want the news of the phone call to be leaked in an effort to create momentum for an election that the Tories want to happen."

So let's get this straight. Un-named sources in the Conservative Party (I'm betting Finley himself, but I digress) tell the Globe&Mail about a conference call from party brass and, shocker, leak the news that party brass actually want those details leaked!

And the Globe&Mail reports all this without a touch of self-consciousness.

Just slightly ridiculous.
