    We’re seeing something similar play out here in Canada.

    Combined with a lot of throwing of old friends under the bus.

    In general the plea of ignorance does not work too well, as one is left with the choice of 2 conclusions, either malfeasance or incompetence, neither of which are a satisfying explanation for the behaviour of a leader of a 1st world (or any for that matter) country.
