New Liberal voting tactic - stage a walkout

Looks like the Liberals have devised a new strategy to deal with votes in the House they don't like... instead of sitting on their hands, or making an actual decision on an issue and voting accordingly, (like, you know, what we elected them to Ottawa to do ON OUR BEHALF) they've decided, instead, to simply get up and walk out of the House.

Instead of showing their support for the final passage of the crime bills, (which initially they supported in the House) they just walked away from their responsiblities, showed their utter contempt for the House, and walked out when the vote was called.

That's right folks, it's not just for immature high school protests anymore! The "Walkout" has officially hit prime time!

Ammm... I'll ask the question again... these guys actually want us to let them govern this country after pulling a stunt like this? Instead of making a decision and then facing the music, they just ran away!

Hang on, I think you guys got your votes mixed up... this wasn't the vote on the Afghan mission, so there's no need for you to cut and run!

    I'm only annoyed they didn't vote against it. From what I remember it's a pretty bad bill, and it would be nice if it doesn't pass.

    Also, if Harper wants an election so badly he should just call one and stop beating around the bush with these stupid confidence votes.

    I didn't understand at first what the Liberals were doing, when I did, and I heard the NANA NANA Goodbye's I burst out laughing, too funny!

    Dion the Pied Piper of the Liberal lemmings.

    You're missing the point here - one House is not to interfere with the other - that's in our Constitution and is part of democracy. You don't see that happen in the US or Britain or any other democratic country.

    On principle - the Liberals did the right thing. Because what Harper has done is an act of dictatorship.

    And, don't give me the bologna of unelected senate - what if it was an elected senate the Liberals had won the majority.

    Harper is stepping over the line - and for me he's now toast. One stupid tactic too many for me.

    By the way - Harper delayed his crime bill for 1-1/2 years by playing his stupid games.

    I don't want a dictator for a PM.

    Kudos to the Liberals!

    PS: Harper has now lost my respect and my vote.

    (Sorry about that earlier comment)


    If you believe strongly about something, you stand and fight for it. It's hard to look tough when you turn and run the other way with your tail between your legs.

    No worries Platty, the appology is greatfully accepted.

    Sarah, with the way your talking, basically reciting Liberal talking points, I'm guessing that PM Harper never really had your vote in the first place.

    Is this the first time the house has tried to set a time limit on the Senate?
