NDP Leader Jack Layton said his party will support both the Bloc and government motions.
On a day when politics took a backseat, Layton looks more the silly opportunist. The answer is simple, support Harper and form a united federalist front, but instead Layton decrees he will vote for the Bloc's mischevious declaration. Why in the world would Layton give Duceppe's transparent attempt to fan the flames any credibility? Does Layton actually think this obvious attempt to score cheap points will resonate with Quebecers?
Actually, this move pretty much sums up the Layton dilemna. Layton has been absolutely masterfully, entirely relevant, and worthy of praise on the environmental file. However, before we clap too loud, we are then reminded of the other Layton that reminds us all of the bad used car salesman, who will do anything to make the deal. Quite frankly Jack this is bullshit and you deservedly look lost in the muck of hyper-politicism. How proud, when you vote for two statements that are diametrically opposed. One step forward, two steps back and forever maddening.
