LONDON — Prime Minister Stephen Harper doesn't have as many friends as he once had on the right of the political spectrum.
But as he shook hands with Britain's Conservative opposition leader Friday — a man who could become the U.K.'s next prime minister — Harper quipped that he had just visited "the mother ship."
Harper welcomed David Cameron to a downtown hotel Friday morning for a half-hour chat before departing London after the conclusion of the G20 summit.
Harper's office played down their Friday get-together as a courtesy call, noting that Cameron spoke to other visiting leaders, particularly U.S. President Barack Obama two days earlier.
Harper meeting with U.K. 'mother ship'
Time for Canada to declare independence from this sort of nonsense. Canada has no mother of any sort any longer. Nauseating. That's why Harper is a second rate kind of guy and not good enough to lead the country.
He has been drawn as Ken, Barbie's insignificant other. Ken is not the star here, only a prop. Just an ideological tool we need to junk from the box.
