The BC Conservatives Descent Into Hell: The Ghosts in the Machine are REAL…
Well, that didn’t take long did it?
After totally failing to capitalize on the arrival of a completely unqualified Premier–who quickly went into lavish freefall, inclusive of a brilliant swan dive, the BC Conservatives have decided that they really don’t want to be the province’s next government and would like to hand back the gains they’ve made–largely through default.
Read this. Now read this. The second, is, of course, a piece I wrote two years ago, almost to the day. It explains why highly-offensive former MP Randy White, nice man that he is, fails to qualify as an advisor to anything except perhaps a local church group.
He has reappeared as a campaign chieftain for the BC Conservatives, in what must be the single stupidest move they’ve committed, ever.
Well, there was the election of Pastor Reed Elley as their President last year. Apparently, the good Pastor, and all his bigoted comments about homosexuals, will be gone soon. So, to keep the Evangelical nutter constituency happy, they’ve trotted out White, who will be an easy target for the salivating, hand-rubbing BC Liberal election-readiness team.
Regardless, the BC Conservatives are done. I’ve never witnessed so many idiots that haven’t the first clue how to run a campaign. Not a clue. An interesting omission is Conservative wunderkind, the Oxford-educated Hamish Marshall, who for all of his stubbornness and youth, would have served them worlds better than White and the social too-conservative nutbars, who are clearly in control.
Brian Peckford as an advisor? Really? Wonderful guy and a good former premier OF NEWFOUNDLAND. But we aren’t redrawing Confederation are we? Did the Pequistes burp in Quebec City? Is Trudeau’s ghost dancing somewhere and I missed the CBC celebration?
So much for landing star candidate Rick Peterson. He can forget his chances of election in Quilchena. They’ve been vaporized. The BC Liberals will hammer him with a recitation of White’s insane comments over the years and Conservatives in that riding–mostly Red Tories, will either stay home or vote Liberal. Sorry Rick. It’s over, unless you can get rid of the problems in your party. And they are obviously, painfully gargantuan.
Beginning with your leader.
So much for the John vanDongen cross-over–that’s now been made null and void. And don’t be surprised if he soon sits as an Independent. If that happens, and vanDongen should firmly threaten them immediately–he’s certainly clever enough–that they either get rid of White or suffer such a blow, then the BC Conservatives will drop to below 10% and be more irrelevant than they are today–if that’s at all possible, having provided Randy White with a seat anywhere outside a church pew or a barn.
And they’ve earned it in spades: Stubborn, inexperienced neophytes at the controls, aided and abetted by whackjob has-beens with social opinions that belong in a Quaker community, and saddled with a stuck-in-neutral septuagenarian, who looks older by the day, than his exhausted and often times confused (and confusing) rhetoric.
This is an alternative to the corrupt Liberals? Seriously???
Don’t be surprised if in May 2013 the BC NDP wipe clean the entire map, save for a couple of seats.
Now it’s really over for the BC Conservatives. Don’t send them any money, tear up your memberships, PUNISH THEM for being such unfathomable fools!
Cummins told me long ago that he wasn’t “completely comfortable” with White or Elley.
Clearly, he was lying.
For that reason alone, he must go, too.
Isn’t two lying premiers, back-to-back, enough?
IDIOTS!!! Missed every opportunity and now this?!
