The Affair Is In The Open

Another pundit dares to speak of the love that dares not speak its name. Look, it just makes sense. I would hate it, naturally, but at least Liberal self-delusion and hypocrisy would be at an end. Let's just call a spade a spade. In the end, blue Liberals share a vision of the country not that much different from the Conservatives. Since the blues are running the party and have done so for most of the last 30 years, it is natural that the Conservative Party should be the default coalition partner of the modern Liberal Party. Trudeau is dead. This is the party of Martin and Manley.

  1. Well, if we went to a Whig-Socialist two-party system, it'd make sense to me.

    One party of more government, the other party of less government.

  2. But you know, that's why I like the idea of a Liberal-NDP merger.

    I figure it would happen, the Red Liberals would then stick with the new "Liberal Democrats", and the Blue Liberals would flee to the Conservatives.

    If it happened the way you describe it, the Red Liberals would flee the "Liberal-Conservatives" for the NDP.

    Endpoint would be the same.

  3. Calgary Grit has been writing (jokingly at first) about this. I think it may have some traction among the blues.

  4. Two different paths to the same end.

    Whether the centre-left merges, or the centre-right merges yet again, we'd end up in the same place.
