Kiss your Newfoundland Conservative MP's goodbye

Cross Danny Millions at your peril:
"In Newfoundland and Labrador, another hotbed of opposition to the budget, polls conducted for NTV by Telelink indicate that two Conservative MPs intending to run in the next election would face an uphill battle if the vote were held today.

Only 11 per cent say they would vote for Fisheries Minister Loyola Hearn, while 48 per cent would not. Almost 58 per cent thought he was wrong to vote for the budget.

Similarly, only 17 per cent would vote for Fabian Manning while 35 per cent said they would not. Fifty-five per cent thought he was wrong to vote for the budget.

More than 500 people were polled in each MP's riding. The margin of error was 4.3 percentage points.

'No surprise at all,' said N.L. Premier Danny Williams, a fierce critic of the Harper government over the controversy.

He thought the relatively high proportion of undecideds in each riding would firm up once the men vote for the budget and 'betray their province.'"
Danny, could you please head on over to Junior MacKay's riding and do your mojo thing...:)
