Monday News

1. ABCer had the exact same thought I had after reading Jay Hill's attempt at spin in the Hill Times.

2. It got a bit overshadowed by the Mulroney saga but Dion's poverty plan is an encouraging sign that the Liberals won't be going green 24/7 during the next campaign. The reviews so far have been quite positive.

3. While Ipsos seems to be generally a bit bullish on Harper, a 14 point lead is mighty impressive. More worrisome for the Liberals should be latest "best PM" numbers from SES.

  • "quite positive."

    The Star? The Globe? Give positive reviews to a Liberal pledge to "reduce poverty"? Shocking! When does Dion plan to define what he means by "poverty"? Or cost this program? Is this where he plans to spend his GST hike? People want to know!

  • Good grief, that Star editorial could seriously be posted verbatim on the Liberal Party website and nobody could tell the difference.

    What unapologetic propaganda.

  • I'm old enough to remember when Ed Broadbent always scored the highest numbers for the leader that would make the best PM, and he would have. It didn't make his party form the government. They did end up influencing policy in a Liberal minority much more effectively that the Joker Layton, who decided he'd just rather have a regressive dictatorial Conservative government than work with the Liberals. Anyways, these numbers might help the Conservatives a little, but not enough to form a majority, and maybe not even enough to form the government next time.
