I Wish I Could Have Avoided This Post

I honestly tired to not talk about this issue but it really has taken a life of its own. So will take a break from our regularly schedule program of the Prime Minister Rankings (I will finish up this weekend) for my irrelevant opinions on the Grewal Matter.

Q: Did the Liberals offer Grewal and/or his wife something to cross the follow?

A: Yes and no. They did not offer Grewal anything specifically just the idea that he could be rewarded in the future. They did this not because they knew that offering an opposition member something as reward for his vote is wrong but because nobody wants Grewal in cabinet or his wife in the senate. As much as I believed Belinda is an idiot, she at least has star power and could (I stress could) be an asset in cabinet. This is something Grewal is not, he has a checkered past remember. Also it is important to remember that neither Murphy or Dosanjh knew that they were being tape recorded so the fact that they were speaking in such terms was more so they made sure not to promise Grewal as an individual something. If this was another MP from the opposition, somebody bigger then I have no doubt they would have done the same thing as they had done with Belinda and promise something specific.

Q: What do you think about the edited tapes?

A: This is the best part. The Liberals line on this is that they cannot be trusted at all because they were edited. This is not really correct. Although there is evidence of splicing it is only a few times. Meaning what he probably did was cut out all the non incrementing things. What Grewal did not due though is put together sentences that were not spoken. He edited the tapes probably to remove all the parts where he looks like he is really pushing for something. I do not buy the whole story that he was doing a sting operation on the Liberals. What is more likely of a story is that he wanted something and didn’t get it so he pretended he was going undercover to soften the embarrassment.

Q: Should Tim Murphy and Ujjal Dosanjh step down until an investigation by either the RCMP or the Ethics commissioner is completed like Sgro?

A: Who cares. I mean really it is not like either of them are very good. Murphy has not done a good job running Martin’s office and Dusanjh hasn’t really done anything at all.

Q: What about the Tories?

A: When the tapes first broke the Tories really didn’t push hard at all. They knew something was up, they knew Grewal was a disgruntled backbencher with a history of stuff like this. The problem was the NDP and the Bloc pressed the issue and the Tories were forced to back Grewal over there mortal enemy. Harper and the CPC look bad in this while thing and to be honest it is not your fault.

Q: So who is right and who is wrong?

A: Everyone loses here. Grewal obviously because he is a cheat and a liar and the Liberals lose because at the end of the offering or pretending to offer in this case rewards for votes is not a good thing. But let us be realistic here, this has always happened and is the nature of the game. That is why I do not care about this whole issue. Now how is that for complacency?

    I am not sure if this spelling mistake is intentional or not, but your link on the side bar to "Chernick on Politics" is spelled incorrectly. It should actually read "Cherniak on Politics".

    Actually, Nobody, there are a lot of minutes that have not reached the public because nobody has bothered downloading and listening to the tapes.

    Go to the most recent blog at my site: Grewal clearly asks for a senate seat for his wife and announces that he will stay a conservative because the conservatives will make him a cabinet minister eventually. (And much, much more.)
