Magic 86

The current constitutional challenge is all in the math.

As Parliament currently stands, the Liberals have 77 sitting members.

Combined, the NDP and Bloc total 86. If they unite, they become Her Majesty's Loyal Opposition.

Stornoway, baby!

Liberals cannot let that happen. At. any. cost.

Natural Governing Party. Bad being Official Opposition. Badder being also ran. All the perks, privileges, media attention, points of order gone.

Apparently the NDP/Bloc talks have been going on for awhile. Makes a good marriage to my mind. Seperatism is dead, Charest is cruising to a federalist majority, and Duceppe has been tagged to replace Marois at the helm of the PQ. The Bloc needs a new opportunity. Layton, on the other hand, would sell his grandmother to the devil for his 15 minutes. A match made in Heav, er, Hell.

But Liberals panicked when they realized the implication of these nuptuals.
