Our View from the Hill: Talking about Thatcher, Harper and CETA

Paul Wells and John Geddes talk politics


 

John Geddes and Paul Wells talk news and headlines. This week’s talking points:

  • What did Margaret Thatcher’s death remind us about Stephen Harper’s Conservatism?
  • When does late become too late for a trade deal between Canada and the European Union?

Hear their say, then have yours in the comments below.


 

Our View from the Hill: Talking about Thatcher, Harper and CETA

  1. I like how those two topics sequed into one another quite nicely. Thatcher the hammer and her acolyte, Harper the low bridger.

    Maybe the two societies[ just to annoy you Maggie] are just too different for Harper to try Maggie’s damn the torpedoes and storm the bridges style, and therefore Harper is just a realist. Or Harper just hasn’t got the bottle to swing the old handbag like Maggie did and live with the consequences?

    Much as i heartily disliked Thatcher’s style i find it infinitely more admirable than Harper’s now you see my Conservative side, now you don’t shtick. I predict no one will be talking about his political courage a generation from now.
