The federal Liberals have been alleging for some time that the New Democrats are cozying up to the Conservative government -- all in the name of ganging up on the Grits.
But one blogger has done some number-crunching to test that charge, by counting up how many times the NDP mentioned Liberals and Conservatives during Question Period this month. The results may surprise some Liberal conspiracy theorists.
Here is what the "Vansterdam Kid" posted on rabble.ca:
There were 27 NDP QP references to the Liberals, directly or to the previous government and its perceived failures. There were at least 167 NDP QP references to the Conservatives, or the current government and its perceived failures.
