Layton's love for the Lib's

Here are some things to consider:

If Martin dramatically changes the budget, he will look even more desperate.

Who is to say that everyone of the Liberals or NDP would vote in favor of the Liberals?

How many centrist Ontario voters (who despise the NDP) will be turned off by the Liberals new alliance with the NDP and subsequently vote Tory?

I think this move is only going to hurt both the Liberals and NDP, short term and long term. But to me, this is just another example of how the left wing will look the other way from corruption in order to further their socialist agenda.

Layton is playing an interesting political chess game. What are his true motives for sucking in the Liberals into changing their budget?

If the Liberals accomodate Layton, and then lose the vote, Layton can tell the electorate that he tried to stop the corporate tax grab and is the shining white knight of Canada. If the Libs and NDP do somehow carry off the vote of confidence, then Layton again claims victory for the "small guy". Win-win for Layton.

Even if the Liberal budget is passed, Layton has the option of voting non-confidence in the Liberals later on another Harper motion. This is a highly probable scenario because more damning evidence will emerge from Gomery inquiry as the "small parallel group" of operatives sing like canaries in an attempt to curry political favour with the next non-Liberal government.

I really don't think that Ontarians or Canadians will be able to distinguish that the NDP propped up the Liberals over the budget, but they will recognize that Layton fought to stop corporate tax breaks proposed by the Liberals and supported by the Conservatives. People will believe what they want to suit their uninformed and adolescent feelings.

We still have several weeks before Harper drops the ax on Martin and by then more Gomery revelations should assault our Canadian sense of propriety. Then we will see the Liberal-controlled media really start the whitewashing and scaremongering, but it will be futile because there is anger in the land demanding vengeance. Off with their heads!!!
