A BCer in Toronto and Far and Wide are both complaining that the Conservatives are being dishonest with the numbers the EI commission is spouting. There is no doubt that these bloggers are correct: the Conservatives on the commission are lying about the cost of the “360” plan. Here’s my problem with Liberal mewling, though: This was entire-fucking-ly predictable. Harper’s government is functionally dishonest, and has been from the start. Harper’s government is also predicated on bullying their way through, even with a minority, by using such dishonest tactics. You know this. Iggy knows this. Layton and Duceppe know this, and have consistantly voted against this government because of it’s track record of bullying and dishonesty. So why in fuck didn’t you vote non-confidence in these bastards when you had the chance? As I’ve said earlier, Iggy is a gamesman sans game.
PS: You’ll never reach 40% without a strong, coherent plan. Whining that the Conservatives are out-strategising and out-bullying you isn’t a strong, coherent plan. Yanking power from their hands, on the other hand, is.
