Beware of Old Reformers With Ten Foot 'Polls'

So Harper's old mentor, Preston Manning, is at it again.

His 'How to Fool Canadians Into Thinking That Reformers are Not Nuts' Institute, has released another poll; and the media is salivating.

His first on the death penalty apparently 'proved' that the majority of Canadians have suddenly turned evil.

Then he claimed that a poll he conducted showed that we had moved to the centre, where he would like you to believe (ha, ha, ah, ha, ha, ha), our fascist dictator (ha, ha, ah, ha, ha, ha), Stephen Harper (ha, ha, ah, ha, ha, ha), is now governing from. (ha, ha, ah, ha, ha, ha)

Nice try.

I came across a book on Cambridge University's website called 'The Radical Right'. You had to buy the book, but they provided the index, which revealed numerous links to Stephen Harper, Preston Manning, the Reform Party, the Alliance Party and the Conservative Party of Canada; which really are all one and the same.

So if they know at Cambridge University that our government is from the radical right, why aren't Canadians getting it?

Of course these little bogus polls that get a lot of media attention, can often plant a seed. Then when a legitimate pollster calls, we remember the results of Manning's polls, with their convoluted questions, and think .... gee .. most Canadians are now thinking like that old Reformer guy, maybe I should too.

So be aware, that his corporate sponsored 'institute' has just released the results of yet another Manning special. This time on abortion. And you guessed it.

75 per cent of respondents feel abortion is “morally wrong".

Of course my latest poll showed that the majority of Canadians believe that Preston Manning and the rest of his Reformers are completely nuts.

And yet the media refuse to publish those results.

Go figure.
