grit trained seals

Apparently iffy believes his mps are not particularly deep thinkers. They have not been invited to his "deep thinkers conference." How do you like that grits? Only iffy and belanger are worthy. The rest of you are trained seals. This carries on the grit tradition of arrogant leaders.


But guess who's not invited to the high-profile think-tank in Montreal to envision the country's future? Incredibly, that would be Liberal MPs.

The entire caucus, except for leader Michael Ignatieff and chinwag co-chairman Mauril Belanger, have been told to stay in their ridings for this seminal party event, limiting their participation to Internet video linkages with the conference floor. For Conservative zinger writers, this is a wonderful gift providing them with attack lines such as: Liberal Deep Thinkers Wanted (MPs need not apply). I can already see Prime Minister Stephen Harper's grin as he throws barbs across the Commons aisle at MPs deemed not worthy of joining their leader in this maximus cerebrius exercise.

It is actually worse than that. They have also decided that if you cannot pony up $700 then they are not interested in hearing your vision of Canada. Some of those invited have grumbled about not being able to claim the conference as an expense. In other words if it ain't free they ain't going.

So much for the passion for their country. It amounts to a junket to Montreal for great restaurants, clubs and strip joints...as long as it is free...

Can you imagine the headlines and uproar if PM Harper was having a "Thinkers Conference" and he told his MP's to stay home!!!... Can you imagine the media - we would have 24/7 - Jane Tabor, Oliver, fife and Travers saying another example of PM controlling everything, big rift in the party, etc. etc, What are we hearing from the media... best idea since sliced bread.... they are so liberal bias it unbelievable.. What it means - Iffy is so arogrant, he can't stand his members reminding him how out of touch he is with Canada....
