Having again abandoned his principles Ignatieff attempts to lie his way out of his own words and threats.
Michael Ignatieff: source CBC Story :“What I’ve said consistently for a month is in those cases where the government brings forth legislation we can support or approve or amend, we’ll do so. My strategy is not to make parliamentary government impossible.”
What a joke. Now Ignatieff wants us to believe that he never said "Mr Harper, your time is up. The Liberal Party cannot support this government any further. We will hold it to account. We will oppose it in Parliament." in early September with the same threats and talk of "principle" repeated to the press multiple times over the last month. (previous post with examples)
This has now reached the point of pure lunacy and it is becoming almost a daily occurrence to see 180 degree turns on statements and policy. I am at a loss for words as to how stupid this all is.
Speaking of which. How are the Liberals now going to reconcile what Ignatieff has just said with the fact that they voted against the renovation tax credit 3 weeks ago.
Does this mean that they really are opposed to the renovation tax credit?
It must be because after all Ignatieff has said 'consistently for a month' that they would support legislation they agreed with.
Or is that another lie? I am having a hard time keeping up.
To quote another blogger on Ignatieff: He is done – and if he isn’t, he should be.
Update: You can listen for yourself to Ignatieff's historical revisionism at Dr. Roy's.
