Speaking of stoopid and green, what fine did Ms May get for pleading guilty the other day?

And, hopefully, one of the things that will be 'through' as a result is the stoopid NDP-Green co-government in BC.

$1500.00. Her lawyer thought $500.00 like the rest of the protesters was sufficient. The judge, however decided that because she was not only a lawyer, but also a Member of Parliament she should have known better. Therefore a heavy fine was necessary.

Thank you.  That was a rather stupid thing for a Member of Parliament to be doing.  They make the laws and set the example, breaking the law is a stupid example to be making.  I am glad the judge came down harder, perhaps to the point of hurting might be a better deterrent in future.
