Its the only way he can get his help to act even slightly loyal to him.


It's actually a drop in the proverbial bucket when one considers the massive promised increases in social spending and increased national debt the other parties are handing out right now.

That's the only way Layton and Iggy can get voters to be temporarily loyal to them.

See? Buying people and votes goes with the political territory. The NDP will curry the favour of the union voters with billions for their benefits and pensions, the Liberals will give increases to the middle/lower class to the tune of billions in increased social safety nets... and you want to nitpik about Harper on this one?

Do you really have no concept of the bigger picture where all the parties are concerned? Or do your socialistic blinders just limit your vision to what YOU want to see?

Have you given any thought whatsoever to the question ... "How will they pay for all their election promises?"

And do you really not care about the national debt and how much it will increase?

GF, for most of my working life, and for all of the last 25 years of it, I was a small business owner, employing as many as 25 people at a time.

Your comment is a personal attack, I believe in honesty, and openness in government, neither is on offer with the harpy crowd.

I AM NOT A SOCIALIST! If anything you could call me a conservative capitalist, however nothing harpy, or the blinkered folk hereabouts can say will make me support someone who heads a party found to be in contempt.

I would agree with you Nibs if the people who found "Harpy" in contempt weren't such giant scumbags themselves.
LET'S GO BRANDON!

It's liars calling out other liars - that's all it is. We shouldn't discredit the contempt issue, however you have to take it with a grain of salt.
