Gritgirl’s newest & latest vid: “Where’s Stephen?”

Gritgirl is on the ball today:

This is of course in reaction to the story that broke this AM that the PM was late for his photo op with the G19 G-20. The BBC has reported it was because he was taking a bathroom break, while the PMO’s office claims it was because he was reviewing important details of the meeting.

Heck, maybe he was doing both.

UPDATE: I know Harper wants to get himself and Canada multiple world news coverage, but I’m not sure whether a debate over why he was late for a scheduled photo-op is exactly what he had in mind.

    Kevin found this at the BBC:

    Leaders started the crucial day of talks with a working breakfast, and before beginning what one minister described as “lively discussions”, posed for a team photo.

    Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper missed it when he was pulled aside by an aide. When the photo was re-taken, however, the Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, was absent.

    Scott wrote to me in another post:

    Show me the citation from them for that claim of yours (and quoting editorial writers doesn’t count)

    No offense Kevin, but if you want to argue politics with me, get your facts straight first.

    MY reply. DITTO..i found it easy to find this info which contradicts dirtgirl and this post.

    • @kwittet, Gee Keven.. make it harder for me 🙂

      The BBC reported that Mr. Harper had actually been “in the loo” when the first picture was taken, sending reporters scrambling to find out whether Mr. Harper had indeed visited the “gents.”…

        @Scott Tribe,

        Scott…your link goes to the globe…not the BBC. If your link was something I missed off the BBC then i would hold up the white flag..
        It would be like me quoting something from CTV that another media outlet reported..

        • @kwittet, C’mon Kevin.. if one media outlet is reporting another media outlet said they said something.. they did say it. They wouldn’t make something like that up

          As for CTV, speak of the Devil. Look at the CTV report here.

          Look at 1:05 of the CTV report, Kevin. That’s a picture of the BBC news item titled, “Canadian PM Missed G20 Family Photo ‘Due to Bathroom Break’

    I cant believe you have gone so low. But then again, yes I can. Good video editing. I notice how it cuts out many times when it starts to pan to the right. May actually have some credibility if we knew who gritgirl was or is?
    My vote is that Scott is gritgirl!!

    • @kwittet, One thing I’ve noticed Kevin, is a lot of conservatives fail to have much of a sense of humour, as it pertains to taking pokes at their dear leader, and you aren’t an exception 🙂

        @Scott Tribe,

        Scott..poke at him all you want. He is your leader too whether you like it or not. And to be honest he does give lots to be poked at about. I know I have been a bit pissy lately but I had an interesting conversation with your 2nd cousin today( i believe you know my dad!!!) Even though he is a die hard liberal and i am a little bit of a left leaning conservative we both agreed today that right now we just dont have good options as to who would do a better job. We also agreed that there are some small advantages to minority governments that this political pissing match going on right now is tying up goverment from working and F**K all is getting done. Normally he is not in favor of changing the system so we could avoid minorities but even he said they should..his words..dig all there heads out of there asses and do some work for a change.
        I agree and that is why right now i think they should all jump in front of a bus. All this political grandstanding for the sake of ..one trying to hold onto power and the other trying to get in is getting a bit tiring..i would like to know that the taxes i pay for wages and everything else that makes goverments work is going towards something instead of the bullshit that is going on right now.
        can you agree with that?

  • Stooner makes a good point, Harper is full of it.
