I hope I have made it clear since the summer that I have come to believe Stephen Harper is turning into a really bad prime minister. He is incoherent, vicious and unserious. His fall update was idiocy on stilts, and when he sent his transport minister out two days later to disown the work of his finance minister, nobody in the country blinked because nobody in the country takes what this government does as a government seriously.
All the opposition had to do was come up with a better alternative. They have failed. This is a depressing moment in our nation’s politics.
Update: In retrospect the coalition may have come one election too late. Recommend this Post
