If Paul Wells is right

Then Harper is in bigger trouble than I thought.

Now that the party fundraisng poison pill has been withdrawn, the crux of the justification for a coalition government is the value of the "stimulus" portion of the economic update. If the consensus of the countries economists is that this is entirely the wrong way to go, Harper has lost his last vestige of authority on public policy.

If he brings forward a realistic stimulus package now, he is shown to have played ideological games with the economy and petty partisan games with the opposition.

If he stands behind the update he has been shown to be incompetent in handling this crisis.

Either way he has to go.Recommend this Post
