... the post election Speech from the Throne is the ... logical endpoint of Magna Carta: the state as servant of the people. So, when you urinate all over a Throne Speech, it’s not like lobbing a pie at the Defence Minister during a war debate: You’re disdaining the very essence of the constitutional order.
But that's all a little too fusty for a know-nothing like Brigette DePape. ... her own ingenious substitution for representative government: A "STOP HARPER" sign. When she's removed from the chamber, she's ready with a press release and a publicist to book media appearances. She says Canada needs its own "Arab Spring". What, you mean with virginity tests for female protesters?
... She is said to have had several job offers ... I can think of few people I’d be less likely to hire than a pampered beneficiary of a leisurely navel-gazing pseudo-education too stupid and self-absorbed at the age of 21 to be able to tell the difference between Mubarak's Cairo and Harper's Ottawa.
... The west is facing not an Arab spring but a long bleak winter of post-prosperity discontent. I don’t think the likes of Brigette DePape will adapt very well – and I would wager their disenchantment with responsible government will grow. As for the Muslim Brotherhood so for stunted morons like Miss DePape: The democratic process is legitimate only if you vote for the approved side.Exactly. DePape's "protest" is lauded by those other "stunted morons" of the left - Green
