Reader comment on item: Some News Items from Londonistan

Submitted by J.S. (Canada), Oct 2, 2006 at 17:05

I fear Canada may be rapidily following Britain's lead in this sort of insanity.

Michael Ignatieff has taken a lead in the leadership race for the Liberal Party. I have read some of what this fellow has written -- and I am not happy. First, he's an academic (that's the first strike against him -- I'm only half-joking); secondly he's from Harvard. hmmm.. He reminds me of a prof I once had...Ignatieff has a certain "leftist" mentality (always whining about the poor "unfortunates":), yet he's not *really* all that liberal or all that "humanitarian" -- the words are there, but action or subastance, forget it... There's also all these contradictions going on -- read one page of his, and the contradictions leap out -- which makes it very curious as to which side he's *really* on. (I suspect the very worse from him -- if he were ever to get elected, Canada would become a Londonistan overnight.) I do believe he would not hesitate to change Canada's constitution so as to permit "nations" to develop independently (the only commonality would be the fact that the "nations" were residing in the "country" of Canada. (There's also this ficititious belief circulating that Ignatieff is somehow more "right" wing -- because of his stance on Iraq and issues about "torture" -- I don't believe he is at all "right-wing"... I think he's a die-hard leftist, potentially even worse than Chretien...)
