Count Ignatieff and friends...

...ready to commence second stage of... "Operation Kick Myself in the Balls"...

With polls showing the Conservatives 7 to 8 percentage points ahead of the Liberals, the Tories may want an election now, as it would be within striking distance of winning a majority of seats in Parliament.

Before the Liberals decided to withdraw their support from the government, the two parties had been tied in the polls.

FROM THE COMMENTS:
"The Conservatives should have a bunch of MPs 'get the flu' the day Iggy puts his NC motion forward. Call his freaking bluff and get this over with."
**********

UPDATE: Let the games begin
"Even without seeing today's update, Goodale said, Liberals have already decided that the government deserves defeat."
Well, I've gotta say... somebody sure does.

If nothing else they could be useful for stress relief .

You're right - I don;t think we can afford "another year of this crap". By crap, of course, I mean a comically incompetent government that inherited a huge surplus and now so soon thereafter presides over the largest deficit in history, o gov't who does everything - EVERYTHING - to gain short-term political advantage with no sense of national interest, a gov't that insists on using MY MONEY to tell us in a very partisan way what a great job they are doing.

Promised transparency, delivered most secretive gov't in history.
Promised to open contracting and stop political polling, have DOUBLED spending on polling, much of it untendered. I could go on and on. these guys are a laughing stock.

Cantuc - I assume you are speaking of these Harpercons, right?

wrong

Cantuc: Yikes. Good luck with all that....

If anyone running a business ran it this poorly, they would be out of business. I guess it is moot as Harper and his cabinet are almost completely devoid of real world experience. Just all talk, all the time - like their bloggy pals!

Ha Ha love the liberal comments. What they don't understand is this: an incompetent is far better for the people than a crook or dictator. Also, consider that Harper is far from incompetent and add that to the mix. (real conservative)

Dummie liberals still do not get it. An incompetent PM is better than a crook or dictator, and Harper is not even incompetent at that! (real conservative)

Yeah, "real conservative", you gotta love a gov't that raised program spending at 3-4 times that rate of inflation when times were good, to introduce a bunch of vote-buying gimmicks. That's "real conservative" for you.

Competent at what, exactly?

"the usual nonny trollboy says... you gotta love a gov't..."

yeah... let's just elect the guy who left the country for greener pastures for three & a half decades... the only liberal not tainted by all those sponsorship scandals.

that'll fix everything.

So... I take it you are completely ok with massive government spending at all times, good and bad. And also the gov't trying to control people's behaviour through tiny tax "incentives". And spending your and my money telling us how great they are, but not telling us exactly how they are spending it.

Just so we're clear.


That said, as usual it will take another Liberal government to clean up yet another massive "conservative" deficit.

Sigh.

"canadian2 whinnies... I take it you are completely ok with massive government spending at all times, good and bad"

oh, good grief... that's your argument... you're gonna tell me what i think?

here... let me try that on...

"i take it you you fiberal crack-lickers don't actually need anybody else's input."

that's how it's done, right?

pathetic.

Oh lib trolls,
you can go round and round with your blah blah blah,
but the Boss, Canadian taxpayers, just don't think the LPC and their unelected leader have got what it takes to run this country.
And no amount of hasseling Tory bloggers is gonna change that.

canadian2 said...

Yeah, Wilson, sorry to trouble all of you kool aid drinkers with pesky things like facts. Oh wait - did you refute any of them? No - better to spew partisan talking points and "clever" word plays like "Fiberals". Gosh, that sure is impressive.

Anyhow, back to the real world. Carry on.

Yes...the libs are certainly ready to run the country.
Wrong field and a project that wasn't due to start yet anyway.

@ canadian2 and nonny,

Ok, I am with you. So which part of government spending are we going to cut first to reign in the massive deficit?

Let me know.

prairie dog said...

Might I make a suggestion, they should begin by cutting off funding for the CBC and then go from there...

Liberal democracy is a system of thievery where the have nots vote themselves the property of the haves.

And their true tax and spend piles of money is reinforced by this private member's Bill which would guarantee full pensions to immigrants who have been here just 3 years...that's THREE YEARS.!
Bob Rae seconded the motion so he hasn't changed his stripes one bit! Link-
