He ain't seen the budget, but he's agin' it.
Does anyone really believe Layton wants to topple the gov. over the upcoming budget, or that he really expects to be part of a coalition in three weeks? No, its just about positioning--about diverting blame to the Libs when the budget passes. But the ploy is so transparent even some in his own party are questioning its usefulness.
This is the kind of silly posturing that makes people think: Ah well, its the NDP, they'll say anything because they know they will never come close to power and can never get called on it.
