The Mayor's directives were to stop using insulting nicknames, such as OGL or Harpo, for politicians and to refer to them by their actual names or positions.

You sir have no right to change my words and attribute the quote to me. This is patently wrong. To put other words into my mouth, that I did not intend to say is unconscionable.
Apologies, I meant to take your name out of the change and forgot. I meant it as an example of how the language could better suit the mayor's wishes. It is now corrected and the point of the changes still stand.

That is best left up to the Mods. If MacDoc (or anyone else) is not upholding the actual standards of ehMac, I trust they will let him know.

It was expressly stated that members should hold other members to the standards of the EhMac community.

Well let's see, where to start, I was not referring to the Prime Minister solely but to the Conservative Party, to the leader of the Conservative Party and the unelected members of the PMO, when I made reference to Our Glorious Leader. This is not name calling but a name for the reality of how our Government truly operates.

Ministers or Ministers of the Crown are folk that tell the truth, conduct themselves honourably and take Ministerial responsibility and resign when found to wanting or acting in a dishonourable manner. Sometimes exceptional Ministers of the Crown actually shape public policy and make substantive change within the professional government. They relay information from Government departments to and from the Governor in Council, (the Cabinet.) They debate the opposition in public, not send out their underlings to do the nitty gritty work in public.

Minions on the other hand are not honourable. Minions spout the daily message track received from the PMO, regurgitating taking points verbatim and ad nauseam to any query put to them, even if, the answer has no relevance to the question put to them. Again the reality of how things work in and from Ottawa these days.

Sorry, but I don't buy that. Your use of Our Glorious Leader is clearly singular and refers specifically to the PM. You need an 's' on the end to accomplish your claim. Of course that would not work either, because we only have one leader. (Unless of course you include the leader of the opposition and the leader of the Liberal party.) Is that what you meant?

+1 The fact is he is borrowing the name applied by the people of North Korea to their dictator, thus it is highly derogatory and completely misplaced as our Prime Minister is duly elected and has to run for election in a democracy. To make such a comparison is ridiculous in the extreme based only on ones objections to the policies and actions of the PM.

Still the only way it could ever be construed as insulting is if the reader feels the PM cannot live up to the expectations that the phrase Our Glorious Leader generates. Hence Harper Believers should not be in the least insulted and his detractors equally well satisfied.

It is insulting because it equates the PM to a tyrannical megalomanical dictator and is in fact by extrapolation also then equating Canadian politics and our institutions to the political situation in North Korea... as I said before, ridiculous in the extreme.
