This Is The Deal Coming From All That Kerfuffle?

June 17, 2009

Well, in a minority government, political parties are supposed to make deals with each other in order for the government to earn the confidence of the House of Commons.

That being said, for all of the kerfuffle, you’d think that the Liberals would have been able to make a better deal.

I mean, a working group to study EI reform? You’d think that the House of Commons would have a committee for that. A committee with members from all parties in the House. Maybe it will come up with a EI reform policy before the recession ends!

Oh, and I suppose the Liberals will get access to government documents and get an opposition day in the fall.

Thing is, it seems that getting all of these, um, concessions would have been possible if Ignatieff and the Liberals went and talked to Harper and the Conservatives in the first place. Heck, it would have saved exposing Ignatieff as an indecisive leader that can’t make a decision in a relatively quick time frame.

You’d think that the Liberals would have learned from the Dion era not to make so much noise if they can’t back it up with action. Come on, even a fourth place party can make a deal better than this!
