You Americans have your problems, but never knowing when you will have to elect a new government is not one of them. You at least can be sure that when you elect a President, you are pretty much stuck with him for four years, whatever he does. We can't vote for our Prime Minister unless we live in his home city, and we can theoretically kick him out whenever we want, except then we would have to vote even more frequently than usual.The PM's character and credentials are important of course, but he's only the leader of a party, and we only get to vote on the character and credentials of our local guy. We don't even get to make comments on the ballot about the party leaders' wives or husbands or anything. We get to make fun of their clothes and everything in the newspapers, but it isn't the same.
Is anybody still awake? No? Good. This is actually a cover for our benign cultural organization, whose motto is Boring from Within, a handy drop-in for Canucks and affiliates (you know who you are) to have friendly discussions of the Secret Plan.Therefore, to the strains of "Song for a Winter's Night", soft, soft...
To all our dear friends and trading partners, we wish you,
Good Night and Good Neighbours
