I have said for a long time that blue grits have no place in the leftist grits. Its also why a dipper grit coalition will be less than the sum of its part. I fully support a grit dipper party. The blue grits will continue to leave. The grits are a party of the left.
Conflicting polls mask an emerging truth: As all parties contemplate a possible spring election, the numbers show the Liberal Party under Michael Ignatieff successfully draining support from the New Democratic and Green parties, just as it hoped to do.
But it is paying a price, as John Manley Liberals defect to the Conservatives, increasing the chances that a spring election would return Stephen Harper as prime minister with a strengthened minority, or possibly even a majority, government.
