Will he or won't he?

Considering the ethical troubles the Conservatives have found themselves in during the past few weeks.

Considering Stephen Harper is a control freak whose head would explode if he was forced to fight an election he did not call.

Considering the fact that Stephen Harper has a tendency to hide from accountability whenever the media or the Opposition managed to corner him on the issue.

Will Stephen Harper prorogue Parliament for a third time to avoid all of the above?

What do you think?

No, prorogation would bury him at this point.

However being that all the above are true, there is the very real option that he can just visit Rideau Hall and ask the GG to dissolve Parliament.

I know he'd rather fight on the budget/economy, but why give the opposition an extra 2 weeks to frame the ethics issue any further? Deficit Jimmy can always leak budget goodies on the campaign trail, and then they can blame the Liberals for scuttling it.

Watch for it, I bet this is being seriously considered by the PMO right now.

I agree KW. You can bet that they are still meeting trying to save their sorry asses as we speak. You can bet that he has plan B already under wraps. After all, he walks alone in the dark in Parliament working his tail off on escape routes. You know something; he is nothing but a coward and will be sic-king his entire caucus on attack ads .Yep, so they can act like a bunch of uncontrollable nursery children needing a change of diapers, a snack and in their case, a tall stiff drink with a box of tissue to wipe away Harpers tears. I wonder if he is still standing before his mirror practicing his next wild screaming match loaded with lies and retorts blaming election Canada that they were wrong all the time.

Its time to fire this bastard, give him a good severance package and ban him from our country along with Pieere P, motor mouth and Bulldog Baird frothing at the mouth like a rabid animal. I wish that the liberals would act like NDP Mulcair calling the media reporters off about the allegations about raising taxes, forming a coalition. Give them the Mulclair response once and for all. Call them out on their stupid questions and simply walk away.

Robert Silver says the same as KW. Ouimet gets grilled today, Milliken's ruling will have a great deal of fallout, Kenney is under a microscope and more keeps coming out...

The press will still report on these issue, but without debates and committees offering info, and a lot of print will be taken up with the superficial election crap.

So, probably harper's best chance at controlling some damage, but he'll be facing something much different this time - a more united opposition, I think (except Elizabeth Ralph Nader May), and he won't have a budget to wave around and accuse opposition of killing, and he'll have to carry the blame for calling what he has said over and over is an election Canadians don't want and Canada can't afford.
