Oh, this is perfect.
In a bizarre twist to a saga that has plunged Ontario’s official opposition Conservatives into chaos, Brown on Friday filed the paperwork to join the leadership race. His rivals blasted him.
Look, I never liked Patrick Brown, with his flip-flopping on the sex-ed issue – first rightly opposing Premier Wynne’s changes to the curriculum, then supporting them; his then further back-stabbing of the so-cons who elected him by marching in a gay pride parade, and his endless pandering to ethnic minorities, culminating in a recent long trip to India in December, which he tweeted endlessly about – but the false accusations against him which were way too convenient in their timing, with his Tories having finally risen enough in popularity (not because he was any good, but because Wynne is so awful) to threaten Wynne, have now even been partially shown to be false.
Now, Brown won’t stand a chance of winning this time, much less leading the Tories to victory, but why shouldn’t he throw a spanner in the works of those who seek to profit from the smear campaign that removed him from the Tory leadership? (Look, I like Doug Ford, and hope he wins, but one can’t deny the opportunism…)
Yeah, it won’t help the Tories any, who have consistently chosen incompetent leaders over the last 20 years which has kept the Liberals in power that whole time.
Oh well. Fun to watch not only the lashing out of the other candidates, but the whining in the media.
Revenge is a dish best served cold.
