Let May in!
Others disagree — they point out, rightly, that her party has never won a seat.
I know the argument — if we let the Greens in, we’ll have to let every fringe party in. And the debates are fractured enough already.
But, you know, the Greens got 7.6% of the national popular vote. And they would have a seat in Parliament, if May weren’t stubborn enough to keep on trying to knock off Tory cabinet ministers.
On the other hand, Gerry Nichols does have a point with this: “If May is allowed in debate change the format. Last time was like watching a pack of dogs trying to take down a bear.“
But whatever — when you’re king of the hill, people will always try to knock you off. Still say Harper should suggest that May be let in. (He probably won’t; she’s been really nasty to him, and he’s vindictive.)
