Jack Layton's amazing awakening
Funniest thing I read all week.
Layton says Liberal hopefuls wasting their time seeking alliance with NDPAs opposed to the grand vision(s) that Paul Martin and his government exhibited since first being elected.
Last May, the NDP agreed to support Paul Martin's minority government in exchange for increased spending on social and environmental programs in the Liberal budget.
But Layton told a newspaper that during their last months in power, he realized the Liberals lacked vision.
The NDP eventually withdrew its support for the Liberals, triggering January's election that saw the Tories take power for the first time since 1993.
