Throne Speech - No election in sight

Watching Michael Ignatieff respond carefully to the Throne Speech makes it very clear that there will be no early election. The punditi talk endlessly about traps, etc but there are none that I can see at the moment. The Liberals can vote for all the prospective bills on second reading. Most of the delays can then be created in the committee if they so desire. And they really only have to get through eight weeks of debate before Christmas.

Parliament comes back the first week in February. That means no election before we see an end of February/ early March budget.
