Duceppe to Iggy: You're a wimp

Gilles Duceppe double dog dares Michael Ignatieff to bring down the Conservatives in a speech to the BQ’s youth wing in Quebec City:

“We’re going to get this report on employment insurance. If Harper refuses to change his policy and if Ignatieff stops giving in, we’ll be in elections. But these are big ‘ifs’. I’d be surprised if Harper changed his position. I’d be less surprised if Ignatieff gave in once again.”

I’m hoping Ignatieff replies with the always devastating “I know you are but what am I?”
