    Fleeing from a “minority” of white supremacists, fascists, neo-Nazis, and others with “unacceptable views” as Fidel Jr. puts it.

    He’s certainly no King George VI and family, nor Churchill for that matter.

    When you’re a leader hiding from your own public I’d suggest it’s time to go.

  3. C.L. says:

    Don’t forget that our own McGowan and Gunner have also fled to secure locations.

    It is now a hackneyed PR stunt whose purpose is to caricature critics of your own extremism as extremists. No man worthy of the name would go along with it. But, then again, no man worthy of the name would be destroying the lives and livelihoods of citizens.

    I’m not at all surprised; people are fed up with stupid omicron rules.
    Why are former British colonies the worst?

    Good question.

    Personally, I think it makes someone look a weak, cowardly leader, but in these days where making yourself out to be a “victim”, or giving up when the going gets a little tough (some sportsmen and women, for instance) resonates with the left, and makes them out to be the “winner” or “hero.”

    Certainly Churchill would never have done it, even if it wouldn’t have been a propaganda coup for Goebbels.

    But there are no Churchills these days, only lily-livered politicians who call themselves “leader.”

    Churchill spent the Blitz at his Country home, the bombing terrified him.

    If only this could be Trudeau’s flight to Varennes.

    Churchill spent the Blitz at his Country home …

    No he spent it here.

    It is in the country, so you got that bit right … he was allowed to use it as a base and meeting room for planning the war.
