That Was So Yesterday

I was sent this video via email. Personal views on a coalition aside, it provides a terrific contrast, or more rightly a graphic example of utter duplicity:

I hope the Libs will insist on specifics in the Jan budget with respect to balancing it two or three years out. Harper has already started attacking Iggy on his party website.

Great video Steve - it should be posted in all comment sections at MSM.
Laxer had a great blog today: Harper’s Economic Plan: Attack Workers’ Wages
Make no mistake, this recession/depression is going to be class warfare

During the Great Depression of the 1930s, corporate managers and their media flunkies made the same case for wage cuts. And their brilliant logic kept the economy in the doldrums for a decade, ending only with the Second World. War.
Harper’s economic plan will be all about class. He’ll want two kinds of cuts: cuts to the taxes corporations and corporate executives pay; and cuts to the wage and salaries employees earn.

Duncan Cameron weighed in with this comment: The new Economic Advisory Council is designed to give Harper some leverage over the Liberals on the tax cut issue. The wage cuts will be divisive, the Liberals and the NDP will not react the same way. So the Harper game plan is becoming clearer, force the Liberals to side with the capitalist class, and pass his budget. If the Liberals fall into the trap they could have considerable trouble finding a role for themselves.

And as for anon - Harper can attack Iggy all he wants - end times are coming to Harper and his mean spirited worker hating crew - time for them to go.

Ignatieff should play that video when they're discussing EI reforms.

Iggy shouldn't contemplate getting into bed with a bully.
