not to mention the cost of operating a CC-144 back and forth to Toronto or Vancouver so 'Selfie' can attend.  The ethics of piggy-backing the meet and greet onto no wait it is piggy backing a govt. public relations trip onto the meet and greet isn't it?

Don't get me wrong:  I think she could have saved the money and stayed where she was.  I just threw in the extra info to let folks make a more informed decision on whether they agree/disagree with her move.

The new political axes

                                                                          Left wing                                           Right wing

Left-wing nationalist. Traditional working class. Hostile to immigrants and globalisation. Strong in Newcastle/south Yorkshire/Midlands
Right-wing nationalist. Believes in the British way of life and doesn't like generous welfare benefits or trade unions. Strong in Essex/East of England


Left-wing internationalist. Middle-class liberal who likes the welfare state and EU freedom of movement. Strong in Scotland/Wales/London
Right-wing internationalist. Free marketeer who likes globalisation and low taxes. Strong in London/south England

As in everything else nuance, details and definitions matter - but the broad strokes are identifiable.
