Perhaps there is some interesting strategy behind the predicament Ignatieff has placed NDP voters in. As I laid out in my previous post the NDP supporters face an existential question.
It is conventional wisdom that until something is done to budge the core vote that each party possess, we are doomed to minority governments. If the Liberals have decided that they have moved as much of the Conservative support as they can, perhaps this is a way to carve the slice needed to form a government off the thin NDP flank.
It maybe that the Liberals are hoping that the NDP supports the Conservatives and thereby show Layton to be as much of a Toom Tabard as Harper is. The explosive effect this could have on NDP support could be just what we need to break the log jam.Recommend this Post
