Conservative Talking Points for the Decision to Cancel Spring Break for MPs


 
  • The purpose of prorogation was to allow the government to prepare a new Throne Speech and a budget. It was not to reduce the amount of time that the House sits.
  • The government had planned all along to cancel the spring break for MPs.
  • This is not a reaction to our declining poll numbers and the public’s opposition to the Prime Minister’s decision to prorogue Parliament.
  • No, seriously.
  • Seriously, it totally isn’t. Honest.
  • Why are you laughing?
  • Stop laughing.
  • STOP LAUGHING!!
  • Thank you.
  • As I was saying, this is in no way a reaction to–
  • Stop rolling your eyes!!!

 

Conservative Talking Points for the Decision to Cancel Spring Break for MPs

  1. I guess this means that Harper's original plan to soar to a majority after the Olympics is now officially dead.

    Perhaps, we should start calling him Stephen Dial-a-Gimmick Harper.

  2. How long before BIff bemoans the left/lib media bias for its yada yada yada yada…on this one too?

    • Huh?

  3. In other news, the conservatives hinted that if they sit every day in 2011 and 2012, everyone can take 2013 off to consult with Canadians.

    • But isn't the world going to end in 2012?

      • you'll need the time of.

  4. If Conservatives want my vote back:

    1. Apologize for deliberately misleading the Canadian people on the motive for prorogation
    2. Publicly apologize to Colvin, Mackay or higher;
    2. Actively cooperate with, and provide all documents requested by, the Committee investigating his allegations; and
    3. Never, ever, say another word about how asking questions is "attacking the troops" or "supporting the Taliban."

    Otherwise, no change.

    • Might as well toss in Harper crossing floor and giving Dion a deep, long, french kiss.

    • yes!

    • in regards to number one, who, what and where satisfies this?

  5. They don't want votes from the likes of you. Troop hater.

  6. HOW LONG BEFORE BIFF BEMOANS THE LEFT/LIB MEDIA BIAS FOR ITS YADA YADA YADA… ON THIS ONE TOO?

  7. Damn, now we'll have to go back to work – Day's model type pose with his murse didn't work.

  8. The worst part about this decision is that partisan sniping always get worse the longer the House is in session without a holiday week break.

  9. You see? If they had gotten that darn dog to bite Flaherty in Iqaluit then we wouldn't have this pro-rogation of pro-rogation problem in the first place!
