Wanker of the Day (Bill C-484 edition)

by matttbastard


Peter “Tony Blair, Jr.” Stoffer.

Please take a moment to ask the Right Hon. Shithead from Sackville–Eastern Shore why he decided to break ranks with the Dippers and vote in favour of Ken Epp’s stealth abortion ban (h/t pogge for the link). Remember, honey trumps vinegar, even if the sweetness is laced with righteous vitriol. In other words, try to avoid unnecessary ad homs like “the Right Hon. Shithead from Sackville–Eastern Shore” in your correspondence.

Oh, and don’t forget to ask Smilin’ Jack whatever happened to the NDP’s commitment to women’s rights and reproductive freedom, and whether Stoffer will face any consequences for breaking ranks.


There is only one party in Parliament which is steadfastly committed to women’s equality and that’s the New Democratic Party. The NDP believes that women’s equality is fundamental to this country and is committed to achieving it in every walk of life – from the makeup of the House of Commons, to pay equity, to childcare. Women make up 41% of the NDP caucus – the highest proportion of women Members of Parliament in Canadian history.

New Democrats have always stood side-by-side with women’s groups to support equality. Whether speaking out on issues like choice on abortion, breaking the silence on violence against women, electing the first female leader of a federal political party, pushing for proactive legislation on pay and employment equity or making sure that every piece of legislation is examined for its impact on women, the NDP is the party that has walked the talk when it comes to fighting for women’s equality.

So why aren’t all caucus members walking the talk, Mr Layton?

International Women’s Day Comes Early in Canada

by matttbastard


Bill C-484 just made it past third second reading. Thanks for proving just how committed to women you and your caucus truly are, Stephane. Way to (literally) not show up!

(How does one say “fucking wanker” au Français?)

Oh, and fuck Dipper turncoat Peter Stoffer, too:

Stoffer is a populist and has been an advocate of Third Way policies championed by Tony Blair. He is affiliated with the internal party reform group NDProgress that successfully pushed the NDP to adopt a ‘one member one vote’ system to choose its leader, and which has called for limits on union influence within the party.

New Labour North is in tha Hizzouse of Commons.

Update: More from JJ and pale.

Update 2: Pro-life C-484 opponent BlastFurnace (the Raymond Gravel of the Canuckosphere–that’s a compliment, btw) weighs in.

Update 3: And Kuri.

Update 4: Heh, Berlynn has the right idea.

Update 5: Statement from Birth Pangs.

Update 6: pretty shaved ape writes letters.

Update 7: More from April Reign, jj, Dave and Cathie from Canada.

The Third Term

by matttbastard

(h/t Petulant for the vid)

4 more years:

BUSH: And the good news about our candidate there will be a new president, a man of character and courage, but he’s not going to change when it comes to taking on the enemy. He understands this is a dangerous world.

‘Stay the course’ will never get old–not even after 100 years.
