Canada’s Minister of National Defence, Gordon O’Connor, has been in the hot seat all week over allegations of torture in Afghanistan. Ottawa is rife with speculation that O’Connor will have to resign.
That kind of speculation led to a stern note from his spokeswoman:
“If any of you give credit to the rumour that MND (minister of national defence) will resign, will look studip (sic). It is not true he will NOT resign.”
Studip? And how do you like that double negative, “It is not true he will NOT resign”? Canoe.ca says, “Now we’re confudes.”
You’d think a spokeswoman would have communications skills, wouldn’t you? I wonder whether she earns as much as Stephen Harper’s psychic hairdresser?
