Iggy's new theme on a coalition

"Compromise as necessary, but not necessarily a coalition".

As in, compromise with the socialists and separatists? What sort of things will he have to offer these leftist parties for their support? Job killing corporate tax increases? A Carbon Tax? A say in judicial and Senate appointments? A bureaucratic and union run "childcare" scheme? Massive subsidies for wage increases to union run companies? Government subsidies for even more money losing corporations? A further entrenching of their failed "soft on crime" strategies?

Hang on... isn't that exactly what Mr. Harper said would happen without a Conservative majority?

An interesting viewpoint from the The Chronicle Herald...
If he [Ignatieff] finds himself, after the election, in a position where a coalition would serve his purposes, he would enter a coalition, no matter what he said on Friday.

But I can’t imagine him in such a position, because English Canadians have made it plain that they will not accept a Liberal-NDP-Bloc coalition. When Mr. Dion made his deal, we were in terra incognito. That’s no longer true.

If the Conservatives win more seats than the Liberals and NDP combined, Mr. Harper will keep his job. If the Liberals and the NDP together win more seats than the Conservatives, Mr. Ignatieff will take over with the support of Mr. Layton.

That’s the deal. There’s not much point in listening to anything else Mr. Ignatieff or Mr. Harper have to say about it during the coming campaign.
Try selling that one to the voting public.

    Canadians will get so tired of these coalitions, they'll just give a majority to one of these guys.

    And there is NOTHING Canadians can do about a coalition, after the fact.

    So it is decision time.
    And the GG is likely seeking serious council right now.

    Those who want a coalition will also want their party to get more clout in parliament as a result.

    I see that mentality helping the Dippers and Greens more than the Liberals.
    Will left leaning Libs vote Dipper, right leaning Libs vote Conservative?
