On Stephen Harper's idea of adjourning Parliament to save his political neck until the new year

james_nicoll:

Gov. Gen. Michaëlle Jean is returning home early from a state visit to Europe to deal with the upheaval on Parliament Hill, where she could decide the fate of the government in the next week.

The Tory government has signalled it is considering all options to prevent a Liberal-NDP coalition from taking power and is expected to begin launching a public relations blitz to discredit the pact.

Poll #1308013
What options might Former Prime Minister to Be Harper be Considering?
  • Prorogue Parliament
  • Cutting a suprise last minute deal with the Bloc
  • Request that Parliament be dissolved and another election called
  • Some unintuitive but technically legal application of existing laws such as the War Measures Act
  • Organize "spontaneous" civil disorder from his supporters
  • Compress all opposing MPs into diamonds using only the power of his mind
  • Request military intervention from George W. Bush
  • Say that he's very very sorry about the budget and please to let him continue being PM

    "The Imperial Senate will no longer be of any concern to us. I've just received word that the Emperor has dissolved the council permanently. The last remnants of the Old Republic have been swept away."


    Context has lost the confidence of the House. QWP.
