No Mr. Harper you can not give Mr. Khan back

I guess Liberals can be happy that Wajid Khan decided to take that walk across the House of Commons floor.

It does not take a rocket scientist to figure out that Mr. Khan's new troubles with the law would be trumpeted from the rooftops by the Conservatives and their media cheerleaders if he were still a Liberal.

As it stands they will still probably find a way to blame the Liberals for this. It would mean righting off Mr. Khan in the process but they have pretty much written off all of Toronto anyway so what is the harm?

I am certain taking him into the Conservative caucus seemed like a good idea at the time. I wonder what Stephen Harper is thinking now?

The Conservatives can belly ache all they want - If I remember correctly, there were rumours about Khan way back when Harper accepted him. In his haste to make Liberals look bad Harper obviously didn't do the background check on the guy.

The Liberals can say - We don't want him, you can have him - he's to bad for us.

Exactly, Harper is still fuming from the Belinda Stronach floor crossing, truth being she was all but kicked out of the Conservatives. Khan was a hardcore Ontario Tory who took Paul Martin's side against Chretien and in the Leadership Race because the right was irrelevant federally at the time (still is in the GTA), and he wanted to be an MP. He was beyond rouge as a candidate and in caucus, and his crossing was no surprise. He won't run again because he was going to lose anyway, so expect him to wander off into the sunset.
