Ahh…who knew Michael Ignatieff was such a political chess master? You see, Iggy didn’t make one of the all-time greatest campaign blunders by admitting he would form a coalition if the Conservatives fail to win a majority, instead he was “telegraphing their intention to form a government if Harper has 153 seats or less”.
This is according to the Globe and Mail’s Jane Taber who trots out her ever-ready anonymous “Liberal insiders” in an attempt to do some damage control.
How she squares the ethics of using her “Liberal insiders” version of events followed by Iggy’s spokeswoman denying it was a wink to coalition supporters is anyone’s guess. I’ve long since stopped trying to figure out how Taber stays employed. (see here)
