The other day I juxtaposed Mr. Conrad Black's own words in which he took folks to task for comparing his good friend Mr. Donald Trump to a certain central European dictator and also brought up that same dictator while denigrating the investigatory work of a lowly corporal in the RCMP.
In the spirit of all the (really, really good) comments that fit, here is how a reader (of ours, not the good Mr. Black's), 'e.a.f.', responded:
"Well, I would conclude Black thinks only those of in his social class should "judge" those in his social class. Might just work, if we were truly "judged" by our peers. Might reduce the number of First Nations people in jails. People with mental illness night not be in jail. And just so the "not so good Lord Tubby" knows, Canada is a democracy, and with that comes police forces, who get to investigate criminal activities or alleged criminal activities or get to investigate situations which might be criminal without any attention being paid to the financial status of the person being investigated.
Now we know why the Magna Carta is such an important document and why we need Charters of Rights and Freedoms, so guys like Lord Tubby and his friends don't get away with crimes. Yes, dear old Nigel ought to be held to the same standard as anyone else in Canada and the person doing the investigating can be just a lowly corporal in the RCMP. So lord tubby and his ilk can forget about being investigated by Poulson, over dinner at the "Club"..."
Good points, eh?
