Steve Harper is clinging desperately to the averment by RCMP constable Greg Horton that, “I have seen no evidence to suggest that the prime minister was personally involved in the minutiae of those matters.”
Look at it this way. Mafia Dons are rarely involved in the "minutiae" of the hits they order. They order somebody whacked, that person is whacked, end of story. We still convict them of murder nonetheless. It's what is called "agency."
Yet some Conservative-friendly news outlets are seizing on this "minutiae" business as absolving Harper of both knowledge and culpability. Somehow he's been personally exonerated. He's the new Teflon Don. Sheer and utter bollocks although it should be taken as a warning that the fix may be in.
The opposition should get off their fat, useless arses and scotch this nonsense right now. If they can't, they should come and hire me. I'll damned well do it for them.
