Legitimate Coalitions

Harper falsely claims that coalitions are illegitimate, that they are not permitted by constitutional law. He felt threatened by a possible NDP-Liberal coalition. This is nonsense. There are plenty of historical precedents, including Britain and Australia today. A coalition, to rule, must have more seats than any other single party. There is nothing in the least undemocratic about it. You can think of a coalition as a temporary merger of two parties.

What Did I Expect?

I find it frustrating politicians almost never do what I ask them to, but then when I read the exhortations of history’s greats, I discover politicians paid no attention to them either.
