Tory Strategists Employ the 'Mulroney Treatment' on Tom Flanagan

Save to delicious Saved by 0 users




Left-wing bloggers and commentators are dismissing MP Shelly Glover as Canada's answer to Sarah Palin with for her flaky comments made on the CBC's Power and Politics. But despite the usual anti-Palin vitriol of left-wingers aimed at MP Glover, I sense that her comments about Tom Flanagan were crafted carefully by Tory strategists. The real question is whether the Conservative Party has disowned Professor Flanagan in response to his comments about the party's talking points on prorogation being "childish". Looking back to the Mulroney-Schreiber Affair and the subsequent cold shoulder treatment given to former Prime Minister Mulroney by the Conservative Party, you'll realize that this isn't the first time the Tories have made a calculated decision to disown a prominent political figure with whom Stephen Harper used to be a friend.
