Gilles Duceppe: Stop pretending two people make a political party

Stop pretending two people make a political party

Gilles Duceppe coming back to lead the Bloc?

Bully for him but let's not pretend that the Bloc is a real party anymore.

You need more than two people to make a party in your house, same with the House of Commons.

While we're at it, let's start treating the other pretend parties, like the Greens, in the same manner.

I bet Tom has his angry face on, just thinking about having some competition! This will be fun to watch this play out.

This news had to make Mulclair’s beard twinge a bit, though.

Well, he gets a lot of cash from the dreamers.

But – two people?


It is all for the cash my friends – all for the cash.

Sorry Brian but on this matter I would have to disagree who should be allowed at the debates.
According to your rules no start up parties would be allowed.
Perhaps it should be decided by the number of ridings the organization is competing in.
If the Libertarian Party was running across Canada in most ridings, shouldn’t they be allowed representation? I looked at their platform and when I asked a question on one thing I wanted clarified, received and answer within hours.

Mainstream would jump on board with a party of one, if they thought the person would take down Harper.

Jill doosh should pump his bloc-pigs and run. Splits the socialist pig votes nicely.

Green Party. Sometimes referred to as Dippers on speed. Given the volatility of Quebec voters who seem for vote for whomever they feel can shakedown the rest of the country for more transfer payments, the Bloc must somehow feel they can displace the NDP, who really, haven’t done much for Quebec. If the Bloc becomes a force again, that will be the reason.
