Quote:
A Commons committee has passed a report recommending the Conservative government should be found in contempt of parliament.

The historic move by the Commons procedure and house affairs committee could lead to a non-confidence vote, which could bring down the government and launch a spring election.

This is the first time in history that a government has been found in contempt.

The report, just a dozen pages long, concludes the government is in contempt for refusing to disclose requested documents detailing the full cost estimates for its crime bills, corporate tax cuts and a plan to buy stealth combat jets.

They were elected to clean up federal government. And so far they have only proven themselves to be corrupt stooges for the corporatocracy and foreign interests.

Harper will survive this, just as he does everything else - by diversion, distraction, and division.

True. This won't have time to get to Parliament before the budget, unfortunately.
