A couple of days ago, I noted how certain conservative voices in the media were suddenly pushing the issue of political subsides for politicians.
I speculated that perhaps this was evidence the Conservative government was going to use this issue to help trigger their own downfall and thus force a federal election.
Well here's more proof: Today the National Citizens Coalition, otherwise known as "Harper's Trained Seals" announced its going to start pushing for the elimination of the subsidy.
I suspect the orders for this NCC campaign came from the PMO.
Of course, it's an issue the NCC should be pushing; the problem is the people running the organization are simply incompetent when it comes to mounting an effective media campaign.
That's something the PMO should consider.
Update: It seems Prime Minister Harper is now sabre rattling on this issue. More signs of an early election?
