NDP leader Buzz Hargrove has asked his parliamentary assistant, Jack Layton, to not pull the plug on Parliament [The Globe and Mail, CAW chief urges Layton not to pull the plug]. Layton appears confused about what to do now. Maybe it's the cold medicine.
Everybody likes a little suspense, I suppose.
The real question is, how come every time Jack has to make a decision, Buzz has to be publically involved? Can't he advise Jack privately, or is there something to be gained for the NDP by being publically linked to the CAW? Or, vice versa?
Updated: Well, no sooner had I finished being berated, then we learn that Jack has indicated he will not support the Liberal Party's proposal for health care protection. That doesn't mean Jack is going to pull the plug, but it does mean the Liberal Party can no longer count on NDP support.
