The Split in the Liberal Party of Canada: Adults vs. Children

Jonathan Kay has written a stunning piece in the National Post about the big divide in the Liberal Party. His use of the terms "adults" and "children" might just seem like mere metaphors but there's actually a lot of truth to their place in his article.

Children come in many forms and we all know many adults who still act like children. Adults are responsible, both morally and fiscally. Children often are not. Adults think through their views and their promises; not just the initial effect, but the longterm effect as well. Children rarely do. Adults have wisdom. Children do not.

As Kay says, the children of the Liberal Party can now move over to the NDP, where they will feel right at home with like-minded irresponsible comrades.
