The Coalition is a Rock Solid Certainty

Here is my logic:  The Conservatives will have as a central plank the removal of the $1.95 per vote Party subsidy.  The Liberals and the Bloc in particular have not been able to raise money yet somehow foolish bankers still lend it to them.  I believe that TD Bank as much as the Liberal leadership will force the Liberals into a Coalition to ensure they don't default on their campaign loans.  Since repealing party welfare will be a campaign promise for the Conservatives, it will be considered part of the mandate of a newly minted minority or majority Conservative Government.    

As we saw in 2008, the loss of these taxpayer funds is unacceptable to the socialist parties.  Mandate or not, the only way to keep the party welfare will be to Coalition.  The only way to prevent a Coalition will be to elect a Conservative Majority Government.

There you have it.  It really is majority or bust. 

I'm sure you've read and watched and heard all the assurances that there will be a Coalition of left wing losers.  You've heard it from the Prime Minister and Ministers and all the MPs on down to the lowliest blogger and supporter.

You haven't heard it from the MSM until very lately.  Only courageous voices  like Roy Green and John Ivison have been able to surface.  The CBC and CTV have repeatedly asked the question "is there really going to be a Coalition?  Is this just a Conservative boogey-man?"  They pretend not to have two brain cells to rub together but don't you believe that either.  It's you who they think has only two brain cells give or take.  Questioning the Coalition makes it more likely.  If you vote Liberal, you vote Bloc and you vote NDP at the same time.  Does that help you or does it help those parties and Big Media and Big Unions?  Does the Coalition help you, or does it help the groups that hold you back?

Maybe CBC and CTV should stop asking Spin Assassin and instead ask Jack and Gilles and Iffy the Terrible if they plan a grand Czardom.

If we didn’t have Pravda-like, Big-Government, state media then we might get reporters to stop asking us the questions and instead ask the suspects.

Hahaha They would never ask me. They put the question to folks like Coyne and Hebert and Simpson etc..

I think the last true thing Iggy said was that he likes the smell of barns. There isn't much point in talking to him except for amusing blue door, red door (of doom) metaphors.

A ballot question: Who do you trust to run the federal government, one led by our PM Stephen Harper or the coalition with details to follow.

Ohhh … I thought maybe they were talking to real people. Spin maybe you should wear a bow tie like Jeffie Simpson and then you would qualify as having an elitist enough “la di da” image to be interviewed by the legacy media.

No coalition.The accusers will vote no confidence,join together and go to the GG.They don't want an election,as they know the cpc could very possibly form a majority govt.It's the only thing that makes sense.After all,Iggy did come back to be P.M.,didn't he,and whats the only way that could possibly happen.Also,they know that the voters wouldn't stand for a coalition,especially with the bloc.Gerald

@CS: Good Q among many. Your insights are excellent I might add. Really enjoy your blogging.

@ nomdelblog: Is that all it takes? I'm a natural lecturer but not sure about debates. I would need to train hard and I'm not that serious. I'd sooner start an oil company in Quebec in fact. -but its an option.

@ Gerald: You sure? You can't go on about democracy like that and then pull a coup. Are they really dumb enough? I always get burned when I ask that but seriously, that's riot inducing stuff.

A successful coalition *could* be formed between the "Blue" Liberals and the CPC as a "Coalition of the Winners", somewhat in the manner of the recent UK election. This would be far more palatable than a "Coalition of the Losers", which is what Ignatieff would represent. The real trick would be how to woo dissociated Liberal MP's to cross the floor; perhaps as part of a "National Unity Government" dedicated to keeping Canada on an even keel as the global economy continues its turmoil?

How to get Blue Liberals to cross the floor? Cabinet Posts! The Conservatives are losing several high flyers who aren't running again and will be in dire need of some talent...

NO, NO, NO! We need not let them into the ranks. They choose their bed long ago. We'll get a majority easily enough (only 12 or so seats folks) without resorting to such needless distortions. They will just cause more "subtle" problems through infiltration and political subterfuge.
We need this Liberal party to go away.
If the "blue-dog" back bencher's want to dissolve from the party and reform then they'll have to do so and on a real time frame. not over th course of a year or single election.

They still haven't served proper time in the penalty box for a whole list of things... Some time out of lead opposition should hopefully see that through. I'd rather they'd just go back to their day jobs like the ROC & fade into proper obscurity.

I could make more convincing arguments but I'm too tired and I don't see a need or expectation that this route will be taken.

"Cabinet Posts! The Conservatives are losing several high flyers who aren't running again and will be in dire need of some talent..."

Are you kidding? theres plenty of capable CPC back bencher to choose from. Give your head a shake. Didn't we try that? Wasn't a resounding success and did hurt the party.

They don't have to all be media "stars" or aim to be PM someday. Leave that junk for the liberal party.
