Adam Radwanski's Crystal Ball

This is an odd article.

Radwanski suggests that the pitchforks are being gathered in populist anger towards incumbent governments. Something about the recession and big government... or something.

Yet every single politician he names is in it up to his neck for a very good reason. You don't need to put on your wizard hat and blather on about "residual resentment toward public employees" to figure out why Brown lost, Campbell is done, and New Brunswick has a new government. Nor do you need to read very much into a Provincial Premier trailing in the polls after a trip up in the economy. There's nothing mysterious here.

God I hate fake narratives.
