Let’s face it: elections can be won – or they can be lost.
Just think of the past Ontario election: Dalton McGuilty was so incredibly unpopular, it seemed impossible for him to win even his own seat, much less form the next government. In comes the Conservative’s John Tory – showing such unlimited incompetence and ignorance during the campaign that he manages to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory!
Ontario has been paying the price ever since…
Coming up to this – 2011 – Federal election, it looked like the Conservatives could finally win that coveted majority!
The things he has been up to lately have made it impossible for many ‘little c’ conservatives to, in good conscience, vote for him.
And that copyright thing…
But that is just the tip of the proverbial iceberg.
With most of their non-partisan core constituents abandoning the Harper Conservatives, and the unelectability of the Ignatieff Liberals, the NDP rose up – higher than ever before.
And, despite the revelations about Mr. Layton’s mob-controlled ‘massage parlour’ habit – and the potential for blackmail this carries with it – we are likely to see a lot more ‘Dippers’ in the Parliament very, very shortly.
