ne day after claiming victory for extracting employment insurance reforms from the Conservatives, New Democrats now say they've read the fine print and the government's latest bill is not the prize they had hoped.This post isn't intended to slam the NDP but rather to lament the ineptitude of all of the parties to the "left" of the Conservatives. Just as the NDP was wrong to crow about the 79 non-confidence votes by the Liberals, so would Liberals be wrong to harp on this point.
While progressives fight amongst themselves Lawrence Martin points out how Harper benefits. Yes I know it doesn't mention the NDP, Bloc or Greens directly but it follows that Harper benefits the more the Opposition (representing the majority of Canadians) squabbles.
He lords over all. It's a jaw-dropping performance. It's as if he's bulletproof when, in fact, he's highly vulnerable.
Attack Harper not each other.
