Okay it's bad enough that the opposition parties are not interested in cooperating in the fifty or so ridings where the Conservatives benefited from vote splitting but dammit is it too much to ask that they stop sniping at each other and start opposing the Harper Government. It has gotten so bad that the NDP has even taken to questioning Elizabeth May's environmental cred, yeah that outta win them a ton of votes.

This week has not been kind too Toronto cops and their credibility. Judges in two separate cases questioned their honesty one saw an officer acquitted of assault causing bodily harm and threatening charges and in the other charges including impaired driving, assault to resist arrest against a Toronto man were stayed. What these two case had in common was the comments of the respective judges. Both accused the officers testifying in these cases of playing fast and loose with the truth while under oath. In the former calling police testimony “inherently incredible” and in the latter “indifferent to the truth”.

There doesn't seem to be a day go by where there isn't a new revelation about Conservative malfeasance, hell some days they seem to crop up hourly, there have already been so many it is hard to keep track. One would think this would be a bad thing for Harper and his minions however it has in fact worked to their benefit.
