'Tis The Honourable Gordon Muir Trickle-Down, the Prime Minister of the Province of British Columbia here.

[Two-minutes of silence]

And what follows from that?

Dear Leader --- the barbarians are at the gates of the Province of British Columbia --- the very home --- the paradise of God-given Kapitalism and Konsumerism --- Dear Leader, you must save us from the rape and pillage that is sure to follow ...
It so happens that, in our last British Columbia election campaign I promised that British Columbians would never have to pay a Harmonized Sales Tax (HST). Then --- it so happens --- much, much later after I made that distant promise, you bailed me out of a severe budget deficit --- and it so happens that, in return, I agreed to make British Columbians pay an HST --- I brought the HST to British Columbia a very long time after I made the election promise. Subversive elements now, with malaise aforethought, have the nerve to claim that I misspoke to the people of British Columbia and, as of last Saturday, my popularity polled at 9% --- the lowest of any Prime Minister of British Columbia.

How long was the very long time between the election and the HST?

Eleven full weeks Dear Leader. But worse calumny was to befall me and free enterprise, freedom and Christianity in the Province of British Columbia. For it so happens that, way back in the year of Our Lord 2001, in the election campaign of that year, I promised that, if elected, the Liberal Party I led would never sell the British Columbia Railway --- B.C. Rail ---

Trickle-down Never use the Lword in My Presence. Revert to the pronoun "we"!!!! --- I will understand of what you speak.

We won the election in the year of Our Lord 2001 --- in fact the anti-democratic-freedom-haters (aka the "New Democratic Party [NDP])") stole only two undeserved seats.
A long, long, long time later, it so happens, we entered into a mere short-term lease of the railroad to Canadian National Railways.

How many decades later? How short-term was the lease?

The short-term lease was entered into a full 20 months after the election. The short-term lease was for only 990 years (mind you the Canadian National Railways had perpetual rights to renew). But despite the fact that I merely leased the railroad, I did not sell it, the socialists, demagogues that they are, claimed I'd broken my campaign promise not to sell --- it is disgusting how low these lefties will stoop.
But worse still --- sometimes I think that Jesus is testing us believers --- it so happened that rogue elements of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police raided the offices of the Ministers of Finance of the Province of British Columbia, Gary Collins and the Minister of Transportation of the Province of British Columbia, Judith Reid, under the paranoidal delusion that we were taking bribes and peddling influence related to the railroad. We acted quickly and banished the rogue kops to an outpost on the Yukon Border serviced by dog team every five years. So my Attorney General was able to only charge one Verk, the assistant to the Minister of Finance of the Province of British Columbia, and one Virk, the assistant to the Minister of Transport of the Province of British Columbia, with bribery and to leave it at that. We thought the assistants would behave like loyal Neo-Cons and take the rap. But no --- these two disloyal assistants, Basi and Virk, traitors to the Neo-con cause, refused to plead guilty and called for a public trial. And it so happened Basi and Virk started naming names --- the first name being one Clark who, they said, had paid a bribe of $25,000. Now it so happened and it was, of course, a shear coincidence that Clark is the brother of Cindy Clark, the then Deputy Premier of the Province of British Columbia --- and --- had they no shame --- the socialists and some newspapers had the nerve to wonder whether the relationship between the Deputy Premier and her brother was more than a coincidence.

Trickle-Down --- are you telling me you haven't got the B.C. media under your thumb?

Well the taxpayers of the Province of British Columbia employ 216 well-paid propagandists in our Public Affairs Bureau of British Columbia. And the taxpayers of the Province of British Columbia have hired Joe Goebbels Consulting of Nuremberg, Germany (who you recommended). And we have two of British Columbia's most trusted columnists in our back pocket --- but the editor of the Victoria Times Colonist is a constant thorn in our side. But worse still --- the editor allows a leftie cartoonist, one Raeside, to savage me daily.

Don't worry about her --- the Times Colonist's been taken over by a hedge fund --- her days are numbered.

Yes, Dear Leader --- but my problem must be solved as we speak or sooner. For six years, we tried to run the wheels off this Basi/Verk case --- but it so happens that, in the course of those six years, these turncoat black-mailers trickled out more irrelevancies --- Basi and Virk said that the chief Neo-Con organizer for the Province of British Columbia paid a bribe of $25,000. And that the railroad itself paid $300,000 to one Kinsella, who was our 2001 election campaign manager and was also on the payroll of the Canadian National Railways which was able to buy (I mean short-term lease) B.C. Rail --- what's wrong about that --- as J.P. Morgan used to say --- the secret of success is to find a conflict of interest and exploit it. .
In fact, I feared, Dear Leader, that, in the far, far distant future, the blackmailers Basi and Virk would shamelessly force the former minister of finance of the Province of British Columbia and the former minister of transportation of the Province of British Columbia to testify at their trial as witnesses under oath.
It so happens that, coincidentally, we entered into a plea bargain with the Basi and Virk last week. Under it, the blackmailers have to stay home for two years --- except to go to work and to go out for a walk and have to keep their traps shut. On our part, as honourable statesmen, we agreed that the taxpayers would gladly pay a mere $6,000,000 in legal fees of the reformed blackmailers to assist in their rehabilitation. Again, the socialists and sabotagers claim that, to avoid allowing the public to hear the evidence of the former minister of finance of the Province of British Columbia and the former minister of transportation for the Province of British Columbia, we made a sweet-heart deal with Basi and Virk. To see how one of your devoted followers suffers, Dear Leader, CLICK HERE to see how that cartooning nabob of negativism, Raeside, savaged our noble efforts on the 21st day of October 2010.

Totally false --- the sweetheart deal and the silencing of the witnesses were unrelated --- how do the people of British Columbia know that --- why because the reformed blackmailers said so. If you can't believe reformed --- and about to be rehabilitated --- blackmailers --- who can you believe?

How many decades or years --- when did the two ministers have to give evidence in the trial?

They would have had to testify last week, Dear Leader. And now the experts (and if you can't believe experts, who can you believe) both at the Public Affairs Bureau and at Joe Goebbels Consulting say my popularity is down to
-30% ...and ... the editor of the Victoria Times Colonist and the godless socialists and the doubters and the nattering nabobs of negativism are demanding a public inquiry into what they call "Railgate". I smell revolution in the air, Dear Leader, and I ask you to declare martial law.

I have a better way. I'll order His Excellency, Governor General How-High to conduct a Vice-Regal Inquiry into this matter and, more important, to set the terms of reference of the inquiry.

But is it proper for His Excellency, the Governor General of the Realm of Canada and all its provinces and territories, to be involved in a political dispute, Dear Leader?

Why do you think he's called "Governor-General How-High"? When I tell him to jump he asks "How High?" That's why I hired him.

You may recall that I had some difficulties a few years ago with the shenanigans of former Prime Minister Brian Baloney. A German high-binder by the name of Karlheinz Schreiber stuffed $300,000 in three brown paper bags and slipped them to Baloney for services rendered ---- Schreiber's client, Airbus Industries, got to sell 34 medium jets to Canadian government controlled Air Canada. The L____ s and the socialists, of course, demanded a full inquiry into what they called "the Airbus affair" and I was under extreme pressure. Trickle-Down --- I have felt your pain. So I turned to that esteemed Canadian, Dr. How-High, who I later appointed Governor General. In a short time How-High recommended that an inquiry be held into Baloney's actions --- but How-High warned that the inquiry should never mention the names of Airbus or Air Canada --- he said allegations about those companies "needed no further scrutiny" because they were "well-tilled ground thanks to previous investigations" --- whatever that meant. As Baloney's old head bureaucrat, Norman Spector, said, "thanks to Dr How-High, Airbus became Airbust". His Excellency'll do the same thing for you. But not on your say-so --- why Trickle-Down -- to him you're nothing but a developer and a lobbyist - a social leper - the lowest of the low - the slimiest creature ever to slither out of the primordial ooze. No --- His Excellency is a snob and a name-dropper and your name falls far below any name he would ever drop. You'll need Me to order His Excellency to order an inquiry.

Dear Leader --- if you will do that, I solemnly promise to do or not to do anything you may ask.

But Trickle-Down your track record for keeping promises leaves much to be desired --- Ha Ha --- just kiddin' --- I know that, when you make a promise to a Political Contributor or a Bona-Fide-Big-Shot, your record is perfect --- it's only to the plebs you don't keep promises --- that's all part of being a Neo-Con. But I'll ask you to attend to these two matters --- change the name of your party from that unrepeatable "L" word to "The Neo-Con-So-Con Party of B.C. (NCSCBC)" ... and ... restrain that cartoonist Raeside from ever leaving Vancouver Island. I do not want that subversive drawing pictures of me.

Done Dear Leader. I give you my blood oath that I will obey.

November 15, 2010 --- Hear ye, hear ye. I, the Governor General of Canada, Master of all I survey, hereby order that there shall be a full Vice-Regal Inquiry into allegations of bribe-taking by certain low-low-low-low-level civil servants of the Province of British Columbia. The inquiry shall be completed by November 30, 2010. I am told that there may be frivolous and scurrilous allegations that others were involved in the making and receiving of railway bribes, for example, the Neo-Con-So-Con (formerly Liberal Party) of British Columbia; for example, Prime Minister Gordon Muir Trickle-Down; for example, non-socialist ministers, past present or future in the Government of British Columbia; for example non-socialists of a higher rank than 10 levels below the said low-low-low-low-level civil servants; for example The British Columbia Railway --- Those allegations need no further scrutiny because they are "well-tilled ground" thanks to previous investigations. And anyone who says otherwise will be deemed guilty of treason and be transported to Gitmo and shall suffer and be stretched on a Vice-Regal rack until dead.
