...from the folks who were looking to make Elizabeth May a Senator...
Indeed, the NDP’s traditional role is that of “social conscience,” prompting a discussion of issues that would otherwise be ignored by the two major parties. Jack Layton thus has carte blanche to promise a chicken in every pot, or pot in every chicken, if NDP members are so inclined.And remember, Michael... if they'll do it with you... they'll do it to you.
In this election, however, that is no longer true. Should the Liberals cobble together a coalition government after the votes are counted, NDP members would be elevated from conscience-keepers to cabinet colleagues.
A Liberal-NDP coalition government would likely be an unstable, left-leaning mess which would last less than a year before collapsing and plunging the country into another election.Yet another 300 million dollar election?
That's just what we need.
