Today we are blessed to see that Jack Layton has joined the chorus by stating that the Conservatives would scrap the Atlantic Accords if elected:
NDP Leader Jack Layton struck back at Stephen Harper on Thursday, saying the Conservative Leader will be "getting into bed with the separatists" if the Tories and Bloc Québécois work together to defeat the Liberal budget.Fear, fear, fear. Is that all these sorry fools have to offer?
He also warned that if the budget is defeated, it could endanger accords recently signed between the federal government and Newfoundland and Labrador and Nova Scotia. The Atlantic accords protect equalization payments from cuts because of increased energy revenue.
The intellectual gymnastics required for Martin and Layton to sleep at night must be truly remarkable. The Liberals use government funds to line their own pockets while at the same time making fools out of Quebecers and somehow Layton reasons that it is the Conservatives that have put the future of the country at risk? Now I have no doubt that Jack Layton is an intellectual dimwit but I wonder how he can convince 15% of the population otherwise.
Now we have Jack Layton telling Maritimers that they should be grateful for the few crumbs Ottawa has thrown their way. All this Maritimer has to say to that is: GO FUCK YOURSELF!
We've had two years of the Liberals and NDP refusing to have an actual debate or to have an honest discussion on any of the issues facing this country. During the last election the Conservatives wanted to discuss the state of the Canadian Forces and Paul Martin ran around for weeks babbling about aircraft carriers in a bid to make the Conservatives look stupid. Pathetic, absolutely pathetic!
Our healthcare system is in a crisis and Martin and Layton run around whining about the evils of two-tier healthcare. Is anyone but me interested in a serious discussion on any of this? Does anyone else around here care?
All the Liberals and NDP care about is maintaining control and to hell with the consequences. What a stinking disgrace.
