What Goes Around, Comes Around, And Then Goes Around Again, And Then Comes Back Up

Somewhere on a beach in Florida, the Dark Prince is laughing.

PS. I note that a pic exists from the actual awards ceremony!

Does Jason Kenney ever shave before 6PM?

There's one of those certificates a block from my house. I didn't really think about it until now.

One side gives praise for merit and the other gives backhand insults. Guess who the owner is going to vote for.

I used to live like five minutes from that place. Noticed that, with its giant transparent C logo, right away.

Nice touch, I thought.

Is Ridenrain running for political office?

The party of non-substance Im guessing.

Probably the Grits, because Kinsella's been eating at that place for eons.

BTW - I'll take that it's OK from you in the future for the Libs to put big red 'L's on government merit awards, and for them to use parliamentary letterhead for Liberal party fund-raising purposes.

Do you have any idea what a hypocritical slime you are?

WhigWag said...

@ Sixth Estate : please elaborate -- is it a different one from that restaurant, that combines a Parliamentary title & crest w. the party logo? That's be very useful to no... details, please.

You didn't even read the story, did you:

The restaurant prominently displays the award certificate on its website. Owner Sam Fung said he doesn't get involved much in politics. He usually votes Liberal but is now leaning Conservative because of the award, which he said has been good for business.

"They seem to be doing a better job than the Liberals these days," said Fung. "The Liberals never did this kind of thing."

Better not print this or it will upset your palls.

No smart answers? Cat got your tongue?

Actually, I'm embarrassed to say that it's the very same restaurant, and I had somehow confused the name (i.e. I thought it was not Yang Sheng, but another restaurant). Sorry to get your hopes up.

I'm not sure which would be worse: a genuine series of ministerial awards to businesses (with an unacceptable but typical partisan bent), or a fake, one-off award, which it appears to be.
