On one of the reasons given why the Liberals can't oppose the party defunding gambit

Almost every editorial I have read on Harper's odious attempt to disable all opposition to his reign has pointed to the Liberals current preoccupation with a leadership campaign as an impediment to their opposing this tripe.

Back on October 20, I anticipated that at some point the Harper reach would exceed his grasp and the current Parliament would be faced with this sort of Götterdämmerung ending.

You are, of course, welcome to read the whole post but the key point is; in 1980 the Liberals were in the midst of a leadership campaign when an election started.

Now, without using the internet, I expect most political types can remember who won that election. How many can remember who the candidates were in the leadership contest?Recommend this Post
