No wonder the Andrea Horwath Ontario NDP government is propping up one of the most corrupt governments in Ontario’s history.
It’s not because of what they can pry out of the government to keep them afloat ( gas plants be damned eh!).
It is because 2013 is a bad year to be a dipper!
They got hammered in the recent BC election, got hammered last night in Nova Scotia (no matter how much of a spin Lori Turnbull tries to put on it) and are getting killed in the polls that once gave them a ray of hope.
Should Andrea do the right thing and pull the pin on this scandalous Liberal government rest assured the people of Ontario will either lose their minds and vote in a majority Liberal government or do the sane thing and vote in a renewed Ontario PC team. The NDP will once again be on the outside looking in.
The NDP desperately needs a decent platform to take the voters minds off the failure of that parties government during the Bob Rae years.( the voters will remember, fair or not,the mess the NDP made when Rae was premier just as the voters remembered the problems of Dix’s past).
You get imagine the negative ads in the can about the NDP and Rae days etc.
Nope, If Andrea pulls the pin on the minority government in Ontario she will be another statistic in a bad year for the NDP.
Despite all the blustering and saber-rattling I would expect that there will be no Ontario election until at least the spring, that is until 2013 gets in the NDP’s rear view mirror.
Will I be right?
