Canada AM this morning ran a quick story this morning about the budget. They said that there was a possibility of a spring election if the Conservatives don't get enough support on this budget from the other parties. The consequences of this: Harper might be too busy with his campaign to go to the royal wedding, of course! The Horror!
I was in the UK last week and there was an upcoming election in Ireland. Election issues were being discussed at length... important ones... none of this but-how-will-an-election-affect-his-ability-to-go-to-a-fucking-WEDDING!
