Senate just a money trough

NANAIMO – Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government is becoming more and more a parody of Orwell’s novel.

To the Editor,

In George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm, the ruling pigs pervert their sanctimonious promises of equality and justice into a farce best summarized by the phrase “all animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others.”

Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s Conservative government is becoming more and more a parody of Orwell’s novel.

The smell of corruption swirling around Sen. Mike Duffy and the Prime Minister’s Office only reinforces a long-held suspicion that the Senate is nothing more than a stylish sty for old political pigs.
