On Power & Politics the other day, MPs discussed Tom Flanagan’s somewhat surprising comments on Monday’s program where he stated that “everyone knows that parliament was prorogued in order to shut down the Afghan inquiry.” Responding to this assessment by Harper’s ideological mentor and former chief of staff, Shelly Glover, the Conservative MP for St. Boniface, MB said this:
I’ve heard some of the allegations made by someone by the name of Tom Flanagan. I don’t know who he is. I’ve never seen this man on Parliament Hill. He is a Canadian I understand and he is entitled to his opinion.
Needless to say, everyone on the program was utterly incredulous at the phenomenal cluelessness of Glover’s awkward reply.
By the way, Glover is the same nincompoop that last year wanted to distribute water bottles emblazoned with the Conservative Party logo to local schools in her riding and was dumbfounded when the offer was refused because it would have violated the school division’s policy regarding contributions of a political nature.
