The only way the Dippers will ever, ever, ever get a sniff of 24 Sussex is if they, you know, that they, change the rules.
When the Globe and Mail asked him how to fix Question Period he went on and on about how Mr. Harper got tons of votes in the three big cities and no seats and the Greens got a million votes and no seats and we have to change coz in Europe, don't you know, it is so much better coz "...the parties do co-operate more, there is more civility, because they know that there is not going to be something called a majority government, nor is there likely to be in the rest of this century. They know they are going to have to collaborate more, negotiations aren’t a bad thing, and after elections they sometimes take weeks to put together a government. But there are either coalitions or signed agreements and people get more civility and more stability."
Of course in Europe crappy little do nothing egotists like, um, Ed Broadbent, get drivers and cooler offices and still do nothing but get better tables at restaurants.
I like our system better. Losers are losers here, not semi-winners.
