They threaten it because the unelected Senate won't pass their budget bill.
According to Doug Finley, former Conservative Party president and now a Senator, the Conservatives are "... ready to go to an election if we have to. The buses, the planes, the trains, the money, the boardroom — everything's ready to rock and roll."
Am I the only person who finds that it doesn't make a single lick of sense that the Conservatives are threatening an election because their Senate is holding something up, and the fact that even if they win the largest majority in the history of the country, the Senate won't change its make-up for months and maybe years?
Ah, well. What have I been saying? Everyone seems to be marching to the beat of a fall election. Hopefully we'll be set and ready to go then too.
And in case anyone asks, I think we'll end up with another 2006-like result.
