Seriously. The will of the majority of parliamentarians is now officially being ignored by an appointed head of state. This is not a good situation for our democracy. If we wanted to vote for a fucking president, we would have changed our system of government some time in the past 141 years.
My advice for next time for potential members of a coalition? Do the deal-making in secret. The public gave you a mandate to topple Der Harperfuhrer by not handing him a majority. You didn’t need to publicize your intentions. For now, stick to your guns. Pay attention to what the Conservatives do, keeping in mind the Shock Doctrine. There may be a lot of damage to reverse come January 28.
What is the conservative plan? Are we going to see American-style bailouts that preserve CEO bonuses instead of jobs? Has Harper learned about playing with others, and will he seek consensus before doing anything? Will he do anything?
