Rex Murphy: Liberal A Team works diligently to seem obnoxious, evasive, out of touch

In ancient days, the Brits had a television show called That Was The Week That Was. It was a confected catalogue of absurdities, mischiefs and embarrassments delivered with all that sarcasm and parody could provide. It was impossible not to think of that show this week, as the Liberal A Team of the prime minister and his (now) battered finance minister explored with the utmost diligence how to make themselves, at various times, appear flat-footed, obnoxious, condescending, evasive, and infinitely out of touch with how people of normal means and ordinary lives think and feel.

    “Liberal A Team Works Diligently To Seem Obnoxious, Evasive, Out Of Touch”

    They do not seem out of touch, they ARE out of touch, and they do NOT care what any of the peasants think about anything – as long as they get re-elected

    Out of touch. They were never ‘in’ touch. The only touch they want to be in, is in touch with our paycheques.

    If the opposition was smart, they would propose an amendment to every bill that the liberals put forth requiring the payment of a tax equal to 400% of any capital gain or income from any investment in which a government minister holds in his portfolio and can affect by his actions…

    liberals… still crooks

  • But they’ve always been that way.

    It wasn’t hard to notice.

      Well, to be fair, in the past Liberal leaders had some managerial skills. The sock boy is a freaken comedy with an equally inept ministerial crew.

    The show will go on. Anyone familiar with damage control would call off changes to tax code, replace finance minister and boot few advisors. Instead the drama boy is playing a buffoon.
