Politics beats math in Conservative budget-making

Okay - it's not Canadian Science, but it certainly illustrates (yet again) that the Conservative gov't refuses to let facts intrude upon their little world. People talk about an "Ottawa Bubble" but this gov't is worse. It's a "PMO Buble" - a bubble of one.

Don’t worry about the fact the Conservatives essentially spent the surplus they had last autumn and have pushed the next federal budget into the new fiscal year.

The new Conservative math is political math.

There’s another name for it. It’s a shell game.
