With members of the Liberal Party now defying Ignatieff's "pillowy soft" whip on a Liberal opposition day motion, will the unity cracks start to show in the Liberal caucus? Today we witnessed the first pebble in the windshield, and this weekend Iggy departs for his Thinkers Conference for which his caucus was not deemed worthy. I'm sure all those MPs appreciate the slight of not being considered thinkers, especially when the stated purpose of the conference is to build party policy! Where's the party? They are holding a policy convention without the rank and file. That's awesome!
So my latest poll question is a list of ten Liberal MPs in either vulnerable seats, or palatable for membership in the Tory family. You may select multiple answers. With today's defiance of the whip, are we going to start seeing more MPs speak out about their frustration with how Dosangh and Rae have handled the Afghanistan file? When they caught him for a scrum in the Commons, Iggy was embarrassed and snarky. Then when hit with questions from the French media about whether or not it was embarrassing, Iggy Pop muddled through a nonsensical answer before quickly spinning around and high tailing it out of the foyer.
I gotta say, today was a great day and I have a lust for life! The Liberal caucus is running against the whip.
