Paul Wells on the Threats of the Iggynistas

From Inkless Wells:

What fun. Here is the logic of one of Michael Ignatieff's most prominent supporters:

• If something — anything — is "a given" in Quebec, it is "unthinkable" not to give it. Failure to pony up with whatever figment of whimsy pops into the heads of the good folks at the National Assembly is not "responsible."

• Failure to "recognize" the Quebec nation "would be disastrous."

Liberal delegates need to understand that if they endorse the motion on nationhood they will be endorsing Frulla's glib brinksmanship. Ignatieff supporters need to understand that support for their candidate now amounts to support for Frulla's reflex toward extortion.
