Place your bets.....who will the 6 NDPer’s be in the Coalition Cabinet?


My guess is:

Jack Layton
Thomas Mulcair
Libby Davies
Joe Comartin
Linda Duncan (only NDP or Liberal MP in Alberta)
Brian Masse (represents auto town of Windsor)


But surely not:

Judy Wasylycia-Leis
Pat Martin
Olivia Chow

OMG---not Judy (I really hacked-up a hairball this time) Wasylycia-Leis--anybody but her.

It will be "Happy" Jack
Thomas "the man" Mulcair
Brian "I need to buy a moped" Masse
Linda "It`s lonely out here" Duncan
Joe "He`s a good guy" Comartin
Pat "Where`s my Hammer" Martin

Special Advisor to the Minister of Finance Jack "The Hitman" Mintz --even Jack looks better than Flaherty.

Jack Layton will be made Minister of Whores and Easy Pieces - a position he will no doubt excel at, being an expert himself

He was Harper's whore before

But now he's our whore

Bottoms up


Poor Stevie, rejected by a whore - I'd feel sorry for him if he were human

Your picks make sense, but I wouldn't be surprised if Pat Martin was one.

I'd be unhappy with Chow, and totally, 100% opposed to Judy WL. I think she gives liberals a bad name.

Not single-handedly, of course.

Your list is too Ontario heavy. If Duncan is in because she is the only choice from Alberta, (and I agree she is) than there will be someone from Manitoba, and that means Judy W-L.

I think Jack Harris might be chosen, as the best of a weak Atlantic NDP caucus.

I'm a very partisan Liberal, but I respect the NDP to choose whoever they want. They have a lot of talent to choose from.

We need to move from an adversarial approach to a cooperative one, or this coalition ain't going to last long.

Yappa:

I am not a partisan-anything.

I believe in meritocracy.

As such, it is not for the "NDP to choose whoever they want".

Furthermore that isn't the way its going to work. Dion will pick the Cabinet and will consult with Layton on the 6 NDP slots.
