A New Party

I think we have the makings of a new political party in this country: The Turncoat Party.

Imagine Belinda Stronach, Garth Turner, Keith Martin, David Emerson, Scott Brison, Wajid Khan, Ujjal Dosanjjh, all working together to push their Turncoat agenda. (Bob Rae would also run under their banner in the next election.)

Their guiding principle would be their lack of principle.

Their agenda would be to betray their agenda.

Their stand on any issue would be not to have a stand on any issue.

Hey come to think of it, that's more or less the agenda of every other party!

I disagree with the idea of being a turncoat is wrong. Parties change and if an individual no longer feels comfortable in their party they should have the right to switch. In addition crossing the floor is a fundamental right under the Westminster system and I fully support allowing it to continue. If constituents dislike the decision, vote out the MP in the next election.
