Cameron's House of Fun

Fatherhood, politics, education, random thoughts (heavy on the random thoughts) and stuff (always stuff).

HEY YOU! Yes you, back away from the constitution.

Oh Steven. Steven, Steven, Steven...

Not content to blow off the GST promise, not content to politicize just about every damn thing in the world, no no, you have to go and dust off the whole constitution mess. I know, it was just sitting there all musty and such, and Gilles was about to go and play with it anyway, but ...

Actually, no I can't be bothered to be funny, so I'll try and be serious here: I am what could be called a referendum baby, I was barely 11 years old for the first one; it's the overarching, defining political movement of my life.

It is not something you play with for sport. It is not something you mess with to score cheap political points, it is not a box you open lightly.

Mr. Harper and all you other chucklehead assholes in Ottawa, this is not some toy you fiddle with to impress your friends, it's the future of the country you purport to lead.

Put it the fuck down, take five giant steps backwards and then take a few deep, cleansing breaths.

Now piss off back to messing about with taxation that favours your supposed base and leave the constitution and Quebec nationalism alone.

And then the overwhelming tide of support for this...as if it were some throw away vote on a nothing topic. Wasn't this all very pressing until recently. Is this because the issue is such a non-issue that we can afford to not worry about it now? Sooo strange.

While the PM's tactics were quick and decisive, catching the BQ a little flat footed; the text of the resolution leaves me cold. Michael Chong hit the nail on the head the other day when he resigned...........
