What Stephen Harper's farewell speech should have read

I can't help but agree with a spot-on letter in today's paper regarding Stephen Harper's huffy decision to quit politics.
As the letter suggests, what Harper's farewell speech SHOULD have read is:
"I know I promised to represent you in Parliament, but that was just a stupid election promise. It will cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars to find my replacement, but I don’t care.
"It's no fun sitting in the Commons now that I’m no longer PM and I can make a lot more money in the private sector. Choosing between putting my constituents first and putting myself first is an easy choice. So goodbye, all you gullible voters."
Couldn't have put it better myself.
