I must admit that Iggy was the only choice left to the Liberals, because they want a guy just like PM Harper! Unfortunately for them, we already have THE leader Canada needs and a fake imitation just won't cut it.
Now, if Iggy can hide his ego with the Puffins for awhile, and get down to rebuilding the Liberal party, he might have a chance in 5 or 6 years. I suspect he will not wait that long for power, so what is the quick, cheap route to power? You guessed it, coalition! Now that the monster has been let out of it's cage, there will be no going back.
Sure, we might fend it off during the next few elections, but it will keep rearing it's ugly head until the lefties win a minority again. Then they will form a coalition without having to join forces in an election. It's now a waiting game.
Think about what happened in Edmonton, during the election. I heard rumours that the Liberals and NDP had formed an "agreement" that Linda Duncan could win and that Liberals should vote for her, it worked, she got elected. This is how it can happen in other ridings. Run two candidates, but only vote for one. I suspect that if the voters in Edmonton had been told what was happening in that riding, the results would have been different.
Make no mistake the Liberals and NDP have realized the advantage of teaming up without appearing to have done so. They are busy right now thinking about how to make this work across the country.
I have no problem with a coalition as long as they, up front, tell voters what is going on. So, next election, they should only run Linda Duncan, Coalition candidate in that riding, and every other riding in Canada, including Quebec. No more of this sneaky behind the scenes scheming.
Will Iggy go for this type of scheming, you bet, he's a Liberal after all.
How do you think they are going to fill their empty coffers? Lefties will fight hard to stop PM Harper and the Conservatives, because they know that with a majority, the purse strings slam shut and they will have to stand on their own for all to see.
The MSM spin is that PM Harper caused this crisis. NO, the opposition did, and they are smelling a way to win without honestly going to the people. Too bad they woke up the silent majority. Too bad the people now understand the damage that the left wants to do to our country.
Understand that cheap imitations are just that, cheap imitations. The only ones being fooled are the fools themselves. Canadians are on to the whole scheme now, and will not allow our country to suffer these fools next election.
