Dear Impolitical

I appreciate the fact that you appear to be sincere in your explanation of your party's amazing turn today, but forgive me if I don't believe a word of it. I wish your party would just come out and openly support the government. Stop feeling so guilty. You have voted with the Tories for the last couple of years, so why pretend you oppose them? Embrace your coalition with the Tories. It is a natural fit after all. I think the root of all your party's problems over the last number of years is your false embrace of all things "progressive". It isn't where your party is and pretending that it is has only caused you grief and a loss of more than half of your seats. So, I say, revel in your new role as the junior partner of the new small "c" conservative government. It suits you, down to a "t". Be loud, be proud, be blue.

  1. I really like what you've done with your sidebar and how it updates itself with your blogroll's posts. Did you do that yourself? Is this a feature of one of the new templats? It's so cool.

  2. Hi Jennifer, are you making headway finding evidence that Jack Layton forced Iggy to support Harper?
