Feminists alike hang out with each other. “Birds of a feather flock together” is a popular saying. Like minds rarely not become friends. PM Trudeau says he is progressive and plans to pursue same in his incumbency.
Trudeau is a people person and so his Justin Holness. If it were not for his strong people skills he would not have been re elected on October 21 after all his transgressions… blackface, Jody’s and Jane’s dispute and SNC Lavalin. Also two ethics violations. That is a lot of baggage yet he survived to live another day. Just 13 short of an outright majority in Monday’s Federal election.
If NDP refuses to support the Liberals they will be toast. They are indebted and need cash to stay as a party. NDP Singh needs the Liberals more than Trudeau needs them. Trust me on that one.
PM Andrew Holness is no saint either. He has survived a Constitutional violation by our Supreme Court. Also a key piece of legislation was shot down by the High Court (Supreme Court) after he spent millions on the bill. Holness’ close friend a Education Minister Senator Ruel Reid was arrested along with his wife and daughter recently for alleged corruption … over $50 million Jamaican dollars missing. Yet he is like teflon. Holness continues to be popular and will win another term. Holness has won two by-elections … seats held by the PNP.
If birds of a feather stick together then Justin and Andrew are bedfellows as it relates to being able to shake off scandals.
