..the New Democrats have still not let the Liberals respond to last week’s budget in the House of Commons and are going against tradition to use all of the response time themselves. When asked about the strategy after Question Period, Opposition Leader Thomas Mulcair said the NDP plans to use every opportunity the parliamentary rule book presented to demonstrate what is wrong with the budget.That's the NDP, or at least the Thomas Mulcair, way - sticking it to the third party (which they recently were) because they can, and they need something to feed Mulcair's bloated ego.
Honestly, if this is what Canadians can expect from Mulcair and co. then they don't they just stick with Harper? You get the same bullying tactics but with a new colour scheme behind it.
“These are things that have to be pointed out,” [Mulcair] added. “Their economic management has been abysmal and we’re going to take all the time that we need and use all of the parliamentary tools at our disposal to make sure that we do our jobs as Canadians have elected us to do.”Apparently Canadians didn't elect the Liberals to do anything, according to Mulcair. Hence why the allotted time should be all his!
Granted, this is politics and any upper hand you can get, you usually take. Though no other party has apparently done this before. But hey, when these jokers are back as the third or fourth party, we'll remember this.
