Of late, Canadian politics have been going through one heck of a WHAT THE CRAP IS THIS!? phase.
Our senators are being audited up the yin yang due to their outrageous expenses.
The Prime Minister’s (now former) chief of staff cut a $90,000 personal cheque TO ONE OF SAID SENATORS, before resigning after the entire country found out about what he’d done.
SPOILER: The country wasn’t pleased.
MPs are now leaving the (ruling) Conservative Party, while others are being welcomed back – because HEY! It turns out that in the end they didn’t need to comply with that breathalyzer?
Oh, and yesterday it was revealed that Nigel Wright – the aforementioned former chief of staff to ol’ STEVIE HARPS (our PM) – had control of a secret fund while he was working in the Prime Minister’s Office.
This was, of course, at the same time that he cut the now infamous $90,000 “personal cheque” to disgraced Senator Mike Duffy.
Damage control. UR DOING IT RONG>
Now, the bright side of this last (bonkers) revelation, is that after it came to light, #PMOSecretFundPurchases began trending on twitter.
People immediately started coming up with the funniest (and wittiest) jokes about what this fund was actually being used for.
Now, being the HUGE Canadian political nerd that I am, I couldn’t stop myself from joining in on the fun.
So may I present to you, what just may be, my finest work to date.
Disclaimer: This probably won’t make sense to anyone who doesn’t live in Canada, or follow our politics.
