Jack and Gilles went up the hill
To create a total disaster.
Jack that clown, said screw the crown,
And Stephane came bumbling after.
Up Jack got, his shorts in a knot
he planned something sinister;
And went to bed illusions in his head
That soon he would be Prime Minister.
Now some did laugh and some did cry
But their fears did soon come true;
The economy crashed as the coalition handed out cash
Yes the country got screwed.

If you guessed The Nanny State of the UK, give yourself 10 points.
Carol singing brownies have been banned from a Hemel Hempstead shopping centre because they are considered a health and safety risk.
Little girls from the West Herts guides have sung for pensioners at a special late night Christmas shopping event in Marlowes for more than a decade.
But the centre's managers decided they would not be invited to this year's event because they would obstruct fire escape routes. [...]
At least it was not because they sing Christmas carols... wait a second...hmmmmm...

Stephen Harper's Conservatives willing to donate 10 million dollars to Canada to help out in these tough economic times. Issue challenge to all other parties to meet or beat...
Stephane Dion... "Dis is not fair"
Jack layton... "Not from my kitchen table"
Gilles Duccepe... Something in french that I could not quite understand. I am guessing it was close to "give Quebec all the money cause we are special"
Elizabeth May... "That kind of money does not grow on trees you know"

Having solved all the provinces problems...
The outgoing leader of the Alberta Liberals managed to wrangle his legislative colleagues on Monday night to support his private member's bill to make rodeo Alberta's official sport.
Red and or white stetsons will be banned outside of Calgary proper (can you tell I am from Edmonton?). Everyone knows that real cowboys only wear black or various shades of brown Cowboy hats. Straw hats shall be acceptable in summer only...
The years are not being kind to any of us...

Can't be can it?
That is what the CBC is reporting from the Liberal Party's First not quite all-candidates forum in Mississauga, Ont..
It is fun to watch the liberal party play another game of Go Fish...
As we all know, money does not grow on trees. Apparently though, it does spew out of trees that are hugged.
The potential penalty, 36 billion euros ($46 billion) for the group based on current permit prices, and the fact that only a minority of 37 Kyoto signatory nations may meet their pledges bodes poorly for international efforts to limit global warming.
Please save the global economy from sliding into recession. Hug every tree you see.

I think perhaps that some people did too many drugs and listened to Pink Floyd The Wall a few too many times.
Children as young as five will win the legal right to tell teachers how they should be taught and disciplined for bad behaviour, it emerged today.
Pupils will be handed an unprecedented say in the running of their schools - from the uniforms they wear to the meals they eat. [...]
Roger Water is a prophet... who knew?

No not Dion, its Diab. Some other nutty sociology professor in Ottawa who apparently did not like France as much as Dion.
