I don’t believe …

... that Justin Trudeau is an idiot who cannot manage to sit through a briefing. There are global leaders like that, but Mr Trudau is not amongst them. He can understand the points being made by senior officials, he can discuss, rationally, the policy options presented by his political advisors. He may not be the … Continue reading I don’t believe …

Only the terminally stupid

Andrew Coyne is exactly right in this clip, at about 2'15", from 'The National's' 'At Issue' panel, when he says that the government is spending tens of billions of dollars and no one is holding them to account.

Standing up …

OK, a couple of days ago I said, "Prime Minister Justin. Trudeau should listen to former Prime Minister Turnbull, to his own national security and military advisors and to his allies who advise standing up to China." How? Well, for a start ban Huawei from Canada's 5G network. Don't do it on technical grounds. Do … Continue reading Standing up …
