He'll Always Be a Felon to Me
Lots of people make mistakes, run afoul of the law, get convicted and do a stretch in prison only to eventually receive a pardon.
Here's my take. The significance of a pardon depends no end on just who is granting absolution. When that someone is Donald Trump, someone you have faithfully shilled for in the pages of the equally dodgy National Post, it's not quite like a real pardon. It's a Trump Pardon, meh.
So an unindicted felon, Trump, grants a convicted felon, Black a pardon. That really doesn't change things. One larcenous swine knows a thoroughly unprincipled swine and, voila, swine things ensue.
Perhaps his Lordship should now di di mau to Westminster to receive the warm Welcome Home from his fellow peers. We should get something out of this if only to see his heels out of our country.
