Cameron's House of Fun

Fatherhood, politics, education, random thoughts (heavy on the random thoughts) and stuff (always stuff).

The difference between what I want and what I think will happen

What I want is that Jean Charest quits politics, takes his Sustainable Development monkey with him, and starts some logging industry consulting firm. This leaves Thomas Mulcaire and Philippe Couillard to decide which one runs. In a surprise move they decide to run as a slate, co-Premier candidates if you will.

At the same time the ADQ takes their hodge podge mess of a circus, folds up it's tent and buggers off.

The renewed, actually representative LPQ (that actually remember what "liberal" means) sweeps the elections, Boisclair retreats to the private sector and we all live happily ever after.

What is going to happen is that sometime in the next year and a half we're going to have an election. Charest is going to go nuts to give bonbons to everyone who stands still. Mario Dumont will look incredulous and patriarical, Boisclair will grin.

Then, the conservative voters will split between the LPQ and the ADQ (probably along both class and linguistic lines) the left of both those parties will either stay or split to the PQ and then we're left with Premier Chucklehead. Grinning like an idiot, thinking he has a mandate to seperate.

And then, we're off to the races again.

cameron, your 'wants' are reasonable but who is going to kick charest out? I don't think he will leave without a firm kick in the ass.
I don't know much about Quebec's internal politics but I do know that Canada doesn't another referendum in Quebec because of Charest.

Charest keeps cratering in the polls and Liberals eat their weak... I dunno, we'll see, but I still think we're going to be stuck with Boisclair.

It's just that Charest seems intent on creating conditions under which a dead dog could win an election for the PQ.
