Iggy's Favorites: Seating plan for the HoC.

Currently the seating plan for the front bench of official opposition reads like this from left to right: Kennedy, Dryden, Hall Findlay, Dion, Goodale, Brison, Bennett,Fry, Bevilacqua, Macaulay, Guarnieri, Volpe, Ignatifeff and Rae.

Aside from the obvious 2 changes of Dion and Iggy, what other changes do you see in store for the front bench of the Liberals in the House of Commons when they return in late January?

Turnabout is fair play so I would like to see Dion and Iggy just trade places myself because the vision of Rae and Dion sitting beside each other at the end of the front bench would bring joy to my heart this holiday season and would make for some good TV on CPAC.

My prediction*: Honestly I expect Dion to go about 3 rows back and sort of do a Paul Martin style disappearing act, and I do think that all of those currently sitting left of Dion, Kennedy, Dryden, and MHF , are going to be getting a different view of the HOC soon as Iggy does some shuffling of his front bench for January.

It should be fun seeing just what Ignatieff comes up with for both the seating plan and shadow cabinet roles under his helm.

Feel free to speculate in the comments.

*Void if Iggy is dumb enough to go coalition. In that case Jack Layton can sit next to Dion.

For maximum Coaltion effectiveness, I think Iggy will have Layton on his right and Gilles Duceppe on his left.

This will ensure the successful implementation of the permanent consultation mechanism that the Bloc secured in the coalition agreement.

Any possibility they may go for the fantasy seating plan lineup and add Dopey, Grumpy, Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, and Sneezy?

Wait a second...you already had them in the list under aliases.

Coderre first off, wants to decrease military equipments (he sees money in his pocket).

The liberals must have a very very short term memoory. Wasn't it they who continually accuse the prime minister of being Bush-like.
Well, la de la. Michael Ignatieff is Bush-like he knows the the Bush's administration very well and he is in favour of 'war in iraq', the very same war Chretien sent small troops to help fight the Iraq war.
Now question is, will the liberals in the HOC and their corrupt MSM and their sad pundits chant and accuse IGNATIEFF OF BEING BUSH-LIKE.?
Duceppe is in a class by himself; he can chew up the libs and ndp for not going along with the coalition scheme especially after he signed an agreement with them.

Add Iggy in there and you got yourself the makings of one hell of scary bedtime story.
