Martin may run for NDP leadership in bid for Liberal merger
OTTAWA - Manitoba NDP MP Pat Martin says he’ll run for the NDP leadership himself if no candidates step forward pledging to take the party into formal unity talks with the federal Liberals.
"I firmly believe we have the ability to stop the Harper agenda," said Martin. "I’m serving notice that that’s what I want to hear from a leadership candidate. And I’m not alone."
Martin said he knows of several people from both parties who believe the same thing. He isn’t seeking the leadership job yet but he says he will do it if it means members can vote for someone willing to lead the two parties to a united stand.
"If none of them throw it on the table, I’ll do it myself," he said.
Yes, a Pat Martin leadership bid! Get ready for puppet shows, orgy and KY Jelly quotes, and Santa Claus cameos.
The only thing which could top that in terms of entertainment value would be a televised summit between Martin and Denis Coderre to draft a merger manifesto.
