Another day in Parliament Add to ...

Rob wrote about polls yesterday. Someone sent me this article last night on the same subject. While it is true that the government has slipped in Quebec and work needs to be done there, it does also seem the Liberals have not yet found a way to grow. Despite their constant negative messaging about the economy and their feeble attempts to blame the government for a world-wide recession, they have not yet succeeded in getting the public to buy their spin. I do think the public is always wiser than political strategists realize.

The opposition might start to get some more credibility from the public, thus moving poll numbers, if they advanced some coherent vision or plan of what they might do differently - ending seal hunts and Newfoundland separation don't count. The constant screams of 'you suck and you're bad at this' might be fun to voice but they don't instill confidence in the public that the other side offers a better approach. If you are Iggy and you are such a bright spark why don't share some original thought about the way forward?
