According to the Globe & Mail, the NDP have decided to take the weekend to mull over the response given them by the Liberal government as it related to their Health Care Demands.
They were supposed to announce their intentions today.
The NDP did not get the response they were looking for, that much is clear. They dangled a carrot in front of the donkey's nose, but the donkey decided it wasn't hungry. Now the NDP has to come up with a new plan to maintain their hold on power, without losing either the support of their voters or their time in the media spotlight. The Liberal's have called their bluff and they were not prepared.
Layton is making his party look less and less credible by the minute. When he didn't get the response he wanted from the Liberals, he should have made a quick end of it and moved on. Now they look desperate.
