Yesterday it was Iggy. Today it's Jack.
This is the message he sent out to NDP members:
Three weeks ago, Stephen Harper locked the doors of Parliament and shut out your elected representatives.
Canadians are sick of the secrecy and arrogance. They’re tired of the old politics of Stephen Harper and the Conservatives.
Canadians are turning to a new kind of politics. A grassroots politics on Facebook and in neighbourhoods, at town halls and rallies. The new politics is New Democrat politics.
Join our movement today.
Our solution to prorogation is simple. Prorogation should only happen after a vote in the House of Commons. We’ll work to make that the law.
And you can help New Democrats stand up to Harper. This Saturday, join us at one of dozens of anti-prorogation rallies across Canada.
Together we’ll send Stephen Harper a clear message – democracy works.
Um, NOOOOO! The new politics is NOT NDP politics. The anti-prorogue movement is NOT your movement.
Retract it, Jack. And apologize for seeming to appropriate a grassrooots, non-partisan citizens' movement.
Or else you look as opportunistic as Iggy and the Libs.
And that ain't pretty.
P.S. You are welcome to join us tomorrow, though.
(I just sent Jack and Olivia -- my MP -- emails that say pretty much that. I'll report if/when I get a response.)
