Despite recent and controversial bipartisan cooperation in extending the Afghanistan mission, the Prime Minister can tell the Governor General, more or less straight-faced, that the minority Conservative agenda doesn’t have enough opposition support.Then he thinks PM Harper will force an election:
It’s a sturdy point. To position themselves as the alternative, Liberals are promising to spend on home-care and education, not new prisons and fighter planes. Those differences start the countdown towards a Liberal attempt to defeat the government when Conservatives bring down a late winter budget.
What’s more certain is that a Monday victory in Vaughan would give Conservatives the added and appealing option of tipping the country into a winter election while Liberals are slipping and sliding.What I get from the article is that Liberals are scared and don't know what to do about getting their support back, even with the MSM shrilling for them. The Conservatives won't rush into an election, why should they? The opposition is abysmal, Iggy is unelectable, and the Senate is ours. Besides that, people are not engaged with politics right now, they are more concerned about their jobs than any election. The good news is that, if there is a winter election, we can watch Sun TV! We won't have to wade through the lefty slop anymore to get to the real truth. How refreshing is that going to be?
