Election strategy

Resident challenges the activities of the Conservative government

Conservative MP Colin Mayes’ recent announcement of the federal donation of  $100,000 to the museum in Vernon sounds like a benevolent and noble gesture. However it certainly is convenient timing for the Conservative Party which has just dropped the writ for a federal  election.

Obviously our self proclaimed protector of the people and his elected minions  believe that giving back a few shekels of our own money to us naive cretins at election time to harvest souls for the polls is not only an effective strategy, but also saves dipping into the bulging Conservative coffers.

If this strategy proves to be correct and helps them to win this election, then we will ultimately live out the consequences of four more years of dictatorial governance, along with the continued erosion of our democracy.
