Hagrid, do you think Julian, Boulerice or Angus are "low-quality?"

Angus still doesn't speak French, as far as I know.

So we're just going to let those loony leftists waltz into OUR party? /s

That loony leftist that worked in the 2008 for the aborted Biden run, for the incumbent governor John Lynch in 2008 and state field director for Obama reelection in 2012.

Given how large was Sanders win in NH, I suspect she is probably competent.

This is rather morbid speculation, considering Belanger is still alive. Is there talk of him stepping down?

I'm not speculating on his death or resignation, I think Bélanger will try to end his term and retire in 2019. It's quite obvious the seat will be open next election, through.

Unless piggygate counts, of course.

Was fake in my opinion- Ashcroft used it to sell his book

Can still count, even if it doesn't happened. The biggest political sexual in Quebec history after all involved events that never happened (a security guard watching pornographic videos at work was inflated by a TV network into a plan for shooting underage male pornography under the roofs of the Assembly, led by an gay Cabinet minister). That more or less destroyed his career (in fact, it's destroyed his will to continue in politics and as the Premier refused his resignation, he stole a coat in a store to force his hand in accepting it). Wierdly, said minister became a star host at that very channel less than a decade after.

Every state seat that falls in Wyatt Roy's federal electorate has been lost save one which is being held by 1%. Hopefully that little sh**tstain goes down soon.

wowowowowow

am I Nostradamus?

What's the issue with Wyatt Roy? Being young?

Our roads and bridges are mostly fine, our electric grid and water/sewer systems are in mostly good condition

You are truly clueless.

We have a justice system.  It works, and it is colorblind.

The issue isn't the justice system, it's the prosecutors, which sometimes are not color-blind at all (there is wonderful ones, there is dreadful ones).

If anything, I'd rather see Islam become more Catholic. (And for that matter the Protestant Reformation largely reversed while we're at it).

Um, how do you "reverse" that? And for that matter how would it be a positive development for liberal churches with woman pastors and accepting gays to go under the Vatican's control and reverse those progressive actions?

Early Protestants weren't liberal at all.

Fleury I am pretty sure is a Liberal. He's the mayor's biggest ally on council, and he's surrounded by the local Liberal machine.  Fleury might actually be a potential Liberal candidate.

Fleury decided not to run in provincial Ottawa-Vanier. Wants to stay close to home for now. Madeleine Meilleur was ready to support him.

Preparing to replace Mauril Bélanger, then?

Had Turnbull called an election in the (Australian) summer of 2015, he probably would have gotten at least a big a majority as he had. Bet he's kicking himself for that.

I'm not sure he could have called a Senate election yet at this date (and nobody wants Senate elections to desync, as it transform them into protest standalone elections, which is terrible for passing laws).

Austria needs a juridicial reform, including replacement of every member of the Constitutionnal Court.

Also, government should get their bank accounts, to see how many were paid by FPO and tere should be protests every day in front of their houses until they resign.

The far-right can't be allowed to steal elections, nor can me (financially or morally) corrupt judges.

The contempory understanding of it amongst PCs is that it represents our party being fiscally conservative and socially progressive.

You can kiss that goodbye if the creepy virgin wins.

Worth nothing that Sandra Jansen said that she would leave the party if Kenney won, as there's "nothing progressive about Jason Kenney." I'd likely be pretty quick to follow her, tbh.

Where would you go, if that came to happen?
65  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Canada General Discussion: Trudeau II on: July 05, 2016, 05:19:48 pm
Trudeau Jr. is like the dream liberal, he would have taken the democratic primaries in a walk

He is a Conservative. A real Liberal would have booted Deepak Chopra, CEO of Canada Post, as soon he entered office. It's an union-busting, anti-equal pay, anti-customer state corporation which should have been reined in long ago (and Chopra banned from any position in government for mismanagement).

I feel like the Blairites (actual Blairites, not just people to the right of Corbyn) are defensively backing Eagle just because she's getting heat for the Iraq War.

They better get ready, because the report of the Chilcot Iraq Inquiry about Iraq War is out on Wednesday.

5. Brexit is a complicated process. Claiming that leaving a free trade zone will just be unmitigatedly AWFUL is pretty simplistic. Also, for all the lefties here claiming this: shame on you, bro. Protectionism is a good thing for working people.

For factory workers only. A waiter or a clerk gains from it, as it drives prices lower.

Time for EU sanctions until a reform of the Constitutionnal Court and full replacement of judges.
69  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Should Loretta Lynch recuse herself from the Clinton case? on: June 30, 2016, 09:38:18 pm
There isn't going to be a recommendation from the FBI to indict, so this is all moot and idiotic prattle from the usual suspects trying to churn up controversy where there really is none.

Ah, so you've spoken to Mr. Comey already? You should have told me sooner, I wouldn't have wasted everyone's time with all this idiotic prattle...

There is no accusations at the moment and Mrs Clinton is presumed not guilty until proven otherwise.

So, no, Loretta Lynch cannot stop to talk to everybody, in case they are related to a future prosecuted person.

There will be a conflict of interest if and only if FBI recommends prosecution.

I think the best thing that could happen would be for Corbyn to step down and enthusiastically back John McDonnell. McDonnell is basically the same as Corbyn on economics with the added benefit of having never been caught on tape praising Hamas. He could keep all of Corbyn's parliamentary support, probably hold on to a large chunk of his popular support, and hopefully win over some of the soft left and Old Labour MPs who only recently abandoned Corbyn.

For once I agree with you--that'd be an elegant and relatively painless solution to this mess, at least in the immediate term.

Instead, someone caught on tape praising IRA. That's much worse.

Oh. I wasn't aware of that.

sh**t.

Watson?

I meant than McDonnell is worse than Corbyn, as he was caught saying, back in 2003.

Quote
"It's about time we started honouring those people involved in the armed struggle. It was the bombs and bullets and sacrifice made by the likes of Bobby Sands that brought Britain to the negotiating table. The peace we have now is due to the action of the IRA."

Such a leader would get bulldozed by opposition.

72  Other Elections - Analysis and Discussion / International Elections / Re: Could the 3rd parties find success in the 2016 UK election? on: June 28, 2016, 07:21:19 pm
No,

- SNP can't win a bigger landlide.
- LibDem heartlands actually have solid LEAVE majorities (South West, urban Yorshire and Midlands)
- Greens are sill reliant on Caroline Lucas
- UKIP lost 3 points in the polls and are being blamed for the current dysphoria in British society
-Probable low turnout (especially by the Remainers

Unless Labour or Tories split, nothing will change. Boris-led Tories will run on a right-wing populist platform all but ending UKIP. Labour will probably recover well enouugh to get a hung parliament from the Tories.

The only possible end to bipartisan politics in the UK is the end of FPTP. See : USA.
As would somewhere like Eastbourne, which barely voted Tory last year and just went remain in the referendum.

Eastbourne is also an LD run authority. Probably the starting point for an LD resurgence would be where they still control / have a strong bench in local government.

Curbstomp has been perma-banned, for reasons too numerous to mention. Think of a reason to ban, and it probably applies to this poster, now former poster.

Surprised he was banned before Omega.

Why did the court grant standing for this?  Shouldn't they need an individual who was negatively impacted by this law?

That bill is only becoming law on July 1st, and there various groups who filled injunctions to stop parts of the future law from being ever applied (before it impacted anymore negatively).
75  General Politics / U.S. General Discussion / Re: Supreme Court Strikes Down Texas Abortion Restrictions on: June 27, 2016, 05:47:39 pm
Worst day in America in years!

I mean, I know Republicans have not exactly been known to care about gay people, but wouldn't you say that Orlando, at the very least, is worse than this, if not other days?

No, Orlando killed 49 innocent people.  Abortion kills 3000 innocent people each day (and more than 49 of them would have likely been saved in one day alone by upholding the Texas laws).  January 22, 1973 is the darkest day in the history of this country, hands down.

Foetuses are not persons.
