Justin done great, (political smarts there!) but I have to agree with physicist Jon Butterworth in The Graun

It is the kind of thing any sufficiently engaged politician could pick up from a decent briefing, given expert help. Such help is available in abundance at Perimeter, and available anywhere to any suitably senior politician who wants it. Kudos to Trudeau for being clever, interested and confident enough to do this.

Clever, interested and confident enough.

Thats what we're missing ... :)

Because he wouldn't know how to get the local potholes fixed or social housing for some layabout, which are the key essential skills to getting elected as a TD.

His father, Pierre was an intellectual, and professor of law , before entering politics....
The Canadians think it's OK to appear educated.

It can be a distinct drawback in some countries, where it is better to conceal your brains and play the down-home folksy card.

I think it's worse than that. I think they're relatively clever people masquerading as morons.

Out in the wilds of Canada an intellectual is anyone who doesn't constantly fantasise about V8 hemi's. They are not to be trusted, and rarely are.
