Secretary General of the Order of Military Merit
First honorable thing Vance has done in this whole debacle.Thoughtful of Vance to save the Honourable Prime Minister from having to deal with that (or should I say having to keep avoiding that).
The PM said he would have no involvement in the removal/return of Vance's ORMM...unlike his participation in encouraging the Norman prosecution.Thoughtful of Vance to save the Honourable Prime Minister from having to deal with that (or should I say having to keep avoiding that).
Yup, knew that. I was simply paraphrasing le Dauphin who was asked if he would revoke Vance's ORMM. My aim was to contrast this against his statements regarding the Norman fiasco.Honours is the exclusive prerogative of the Crown, through the Governor General as viceregal.
Does he get his lifetime membership fee back?More "Here's your hat - what's your hurry?" for Vance ...

We didn't frame pictures for Admiral MacDonald as CDS. As understand it, he resigned in disgrace before he got around to sitting for his official portrait, saving the taxpayer some money in the process. And General Vance, as the longest ever serving CDS by far, also gave us good value if you value it in terms of portrait cost per year.Forget that. Do we as taxpayers get the framing costs for him and MacDonald back?
That should ensure the new legal gun legislation being tabled today gets ignored by the MSM.
