Nik Nanos thinks grit disunity will be their undoing. I suspect there will be a fall election as well. This will die down once the actual summit. iffy will disappear from the national stage when parliament recesses will HM Pm Harper will be shown on the world stage. Let the grits defeat HM government if they are so confident. I suspect second quarter grit fundraising numbers will be dismal.
And a fall vote remains likely despite the damaging revelations Prime Minister Stephen Harper (Calgary Southwest, Alta.) has faced over his government's spending spree for the world summits he is scheduled to host later this month in Toronto and Huntsville, Ont., Mr. Nanos added.
The Liberal strife, exposed and stirred up further by wild-card backroomer Warren Kinsella's declaration last week, backed up by his own sworn affidavit, of top-level merger talks with the NDP, denied by Mr. Ignatieff (Etobicoke-Lakeshore, Ont.), added to party woes created by the bleeding of Liberal support to the NDP. That phenomenon in itself has increased the chances that Mr. Harper might form the majority government that slipped through his grasp in the past two elections.
