Second Thots

Sometimes one has to step back, take pause, and have some "second thots"

Garth Turner

In the wake of Garth Turner's expulsion from the federal Tory caucus, probably the most interesting thing I've heard is speculation that he's going Green. It makes a lot of sense, for the reasons David Akin outlines, which is probably why it won't happen.

Personally, I don't think Turner wanted all this to happen. I don't think he wanted to run in the next election as anything but a Conservative. So, it'll be interesting to see what Mr. Turner has to say today at 5 pm — probably the most anticipated news conference we've had in politics for a while. Pass the popcorn.

UPDATE (2:46 pm): By the way, if he does go Green, my bet is that it won't happen today — if it ever does.

UPDATE (2:51 pm): Let's also not forget that Turner was against Emerson crossing the floor without a by-election.

UPDATE (3:16 pm): If Turner decides to go on the attack, what would I suggest the Conservatives do in defence? "Garth Turner is not a team player." Say it over again: "Garth Turner is not a team player." Again....
