Ding dong the bitch is gone! I always liked BC NDP Leader Carole James’ resume. I liked her less than I liked her resume. She sounded like exactly the kind of person we would want as Premier. But that was the problem too–she’s trying to be someone.
Carole James is too concerned with validation from all the reasons that she was better than BC Premier Gordon Campbell. There is a big difference between bitching about the failings of the BC Liberals and having a plan. The province needs a plan. Let’s hope we get one from both leadership races.
Now that Carole James is gone, there is still one other politician in BC that has been asked to resign by many respected party members. The criticisms of Elizabeth May are the same criticisms that plagued Carole James. Specifically that she is too controlling, power hungry and incompetent to win. Will Green Party of Canada Leader Elizabeth May resign now that the Greens were almost wiped out in the recent by-elections?
Watch the video about the Pirate Party almost beating the Greens in the by-elections:
Check out the video lol
With the results of November 29th, 2010 by-elections, a few observations can be made:
One: No one gives a shit! Voter Turnout was in the twenty to thirty percent range.
Two: The Green Party is still afloat, but sinking fast, after almost being beaten by the Pirate Party. That’s right… A political joke party called the Pirate Party was twenty votes away from beating Elizabeth May’s Green Party in Monday’s By-election. In Winnipeg North, the drop was from a poor 4.75 percent to an embarrassing zero point seven percent. In the Ontario riding of Vaughan, the Greens’ popular vote dropped from 6.9 percent in 2008, to only 1.2 percent.. Greens received only 1404 total votes in all by-election races combined. Even Elizabeth’s organic farming star candidate and Green Party Federal Counsellor Kate Story could only inspire 809 votes in Monday’s By-election. The results for the Greens’ was just 5.6 percent of the vote, which is worse than the same candidates 2008 finish.
People are sick of being misled by politicians. Elizabeth May called the 1.2% finish for the Green Party in Vaughan a “strong campaign” in her press release. How is losing 80% of your popular vote a “strong campaign”… or honest?
