The Coalition Idea, Tom Mulcair, and the Great Joe Cocker
In my last post I wrote about how I would welcome the idea of a coalition to bring down the Harper regime.
Which as usual, was greeted with the usual scepticism from some of my readers and friends. As if it came from Mars not Canada.
Then I saw that Tom Mulcair has said that he is at least open to the idea.
The “C word” many tire of or avoid altogether during election campaigns doesn’t scare the federal NDP leader.
While keeping the option on the table for 2015, the leader won’t yet commit to it, keeping his focus on the ultimate prize.
Which is all I want, because if you don't at least talk about the idea it will always seem to come from another planet.
Instead of being a legitimate political arrangement which is used all over the world, including these days in the British mother Parliament.
And then I saw that Joe Cocker had died.
And this song seemed to bring it all together...
What a great song, what a great singer.
And what a great idea...
With a little help from my friends, the idea of a coalition will never die.
With a little help from my friends, the great Joe Cocker will live for ever...
