1) A cowardly move that will possibly be made in Canada by a idiot of a man, Stephen Harper, aka the Canadian Prime Minister.

2) A decision that could be made to save his own ass, when in reality, he begins to look like a fool. The New Democratic Party - Bloc Quebecois - Liberal coalition has a far better chance than any half-baked stupidity filled party like the Conservatives.
"Oh no, I think my government may topple. I think I'll prorogue and save my ass, even if I look like a fool." - Harper-ese.

Ms Keneally conceded she had ''made a mistake'' by proroguing, or shutting down, Parliament days before Christmas. She denied it was aimed at blocking the inquiry but admitted she had underestimated public interest in the inquiry.

Last night, a spokesman for the Premier claimed it was too difficult to reverse Ms Keneally's decision on December 22 to prorogue Parliament, which the Premier insists had nothing to do with trying to shut down the power inquiry. "We cannot unprorogue Parliament. You can't," the spokesman said. "This is the best possible way of doing it. This is 100 per cent openness and transparency."
