New Twist To "Tax and Spend Liberal"

Today, columnist Michael Harris pinned the tail on the Iggy when he addressed Iggy’s “new” love for the environment.

A man who has just been knocked down by a bus doesn’t usually get up and jump in front of a train.

Liberal Leader Michael Ignatieff has done just that with the announcement that the “heart” of the Liberal platform in the next federal election will be the environment and clean energy. Has a political death wish ever been expressed more clearly? And didn’t they try that, albeit in reverse, in the last federal bun fight?

The plan under Stephane Dion was a carbon tax; the Ignatieff approach is oceanic government spending on clean energy.

But the key is this next line. If we were using hockey analogies, this next line is the equivalent of “putting it top shelf where mama keeps the peanut butter”.

Between these two professors, the traditional Liberal bases have been covered tax and spend.

Iggy is the “Spend” to Dion’s “Tax”.
