Carole James puts up a Fight, a Fight for her Position, Too bad she never fought for the Province!

So Carole James lashes out in anger, lashes out at party dissidents,.....I have never seen or heard that kind of anger expressed by Carole James once in the last decade......

So what spawned this anger, was it the ministry of children and family development erring and causing the death of an innocenct child, was the anger over a $600 million and growing tax indemnity we owe to CN Rail over the illegal theft of our railway...

Was this extroadinary anger over Campbell not raising the minimum wage in a decade, did she express this rage over Jane Thornthwaite`s drunk driving during the Olympics,  did she become infuriated over once again B.C. leading Canada with child poverty, was the outburst over a massive spike in food bank use, did Carole scream to the rafters about 5000 additional long term care beds promised by Campbell in 2001 that have yet to be delivered on, did she rage about the treatment of seniors and hospital closures, the dismantling of public education, has she demanded the Premier resign over habitual lies, over lying about our fiscal books, gag laws, the slashing of legal aid, the closure of 10 prisons and 25 courthouses since Campbell`s reign of terror began........


No friends, Carole`s new found anger and scathing critiques, her bravado, her drawing a line in the sand, her putting her foot down and saying...Saying she`s furious and won`t take it anymore, the new Carole James only learned to fight for herself.

If that doesn`t take the cake I don`t what will, let me be clear, Carole James cares about the Province but cares more about her leadership, a true leader would say...put it to a vote.....Let the majority speak, sure I have heard David Shreck and others talk about no new ndp leader has presented themself, why would they until a leadership vote or convention is called, Bob Simpson spoke out with mild criticism and Carole dusted him off, Gordon Campbell has announced his resignation and  still no new potential leader has come forward...

I suspect there will be a snap election called almost immediately when a new Liberal leader comes forward, recalls are going to bring down the BC Liberal Government, Kash Heed will be stripped of his MLAship soon, the BC Liberals will try and capitalize on a spark by their new leader and the NDP waffling and placating Carole James, the leadership growing pains must be resolved before the next ndp convention....If the ndp brass/riding associations, members call for a full blown leadership contest, let the chips fall where they may, if Carole James has the majority of support and wins a leadership contest I will support her....I will support whoever comes out on top...

You can`t threaten people Carole, you can`t force people to like you, Campbell tried to shove his love for us down our throats, he threw money at us to buy favour, the bottom line is you can`t turn the public perception around, like Campbell, Carole James has been in the political scene for a long time, whatever BCers think about Carole James now will not change, a new shade of lipstick and new perfume won`t mask the past or draw voters to her, Carole is smart enough to know that.....

Carole`s new rage should have been present before the last election, my gawd, how much ammo did the NDP have, what a pathetic campaign was run, not the individuals but the backroom brains were in a coma, I mean really, the raising of the price of beer in the NDP campaign, that one critical error cost the NDP the Mission riding, Caribou, Comox Valley, Kamloops....

Carole should have raged at Campbell during the writ period of our last election, she should have called him an habitual liar, the hell with being politically correct, she should have had lawn signs saying...There is nothing honourable about premier Campbell....

The friends I associate with, average Joes, they have opinions of Carole James, my brother inlaw Larry thinks she sounds like a nagging wife...My friend Mike calls Carole James... finger nails scratching a chalk board.

Carole James stomped Gordon Campbell in the televised T.V. debates in both 2005 and 2009  yet it did nothing for her.

The ndp party must call  a full blown leadership campaign, there is more at stake than bruised egos and personal pride, the well being of our Province is on the line, we can`t afford the takeover of British Columbia by Corporations and shareholders, if the BC Liberals win the world of scorched earth abusers will be crawling all over our land.....

The line in the sand was drawn a deacde ago by Howe street and the media, they vowed then to never let the ndp Govern, by hook, by crook, by lies and propaganda, despite the Liberal party swirling the toilet bowl the Howe streeters haven`t forgot that pledge, the media, radio, the stooges have attacked Carole James like an ICBC lawyer attacking a claim,  now the Vancouver Sun, The Province, Bill Good, Cluck Cluck Clark, Palmer, Baldrey, Les Leyne, Tom Felcher fletcher, eveyone with Global/Canwest(now Blackpress or whatever) Shaw, cknw ...Everyone of those people and entities attacked Carole James until......

Until there was talk of a new ndp leader and all of a sudden Carole James is the only one to lead the party, they use phrases and words like political suicide, crazy, insane, stupid.....

Open your eyes Carole, don`t believe the spoonfed garbage, .....Are you that stupid...Have you not seen the PAB directives to promote Carole James at all costs!...Have you not heard BC Liberal MLAs say they want you around for the next election...

If you hang on Carole James, if you lose the next election, do you think an apology to the poor children of British Columbia will suffice?

(UPDATED HERE)  12:35PM...Carole James survives the first round...Good for her....Hear me cleary Carole James....your new found anger, aim it at the BC Liberals, start exposing the truth, start yelling, calling press conferences, start calling the LIARs liars.....To hell with parlimentary language, you want to beat the BC Liberals, get down in the gutter where they live, take it to them, you might want to start with the Laila Yuile`s shadow toll story, and preferably before the story goes National!

Grant, we should also give the party shit. They just voted to keep her by 85%. Can you believe that? The only thing is now what?

Evil Eye said...

Welcome to a loss in 2013! Carole James again snatches defeat from the jaws of victory!

Grant G said...

Gentlemen....Let me be perfectly clear...We can win with Carole James.

I feel there would be a much bigger victory with a new leader.

Remember, it`s individual ridings, there will be many liberals who won`t be able to stomach voting for Liberals liars.

The ndp leadership debate isn`t over yet, and as I have written in the past, the leadership convention for the ndp wouldn`t have happened until December 2011....

The present Government will fall before June of 2011, probably sooner, so there was a distinct possibilty that Carole James would end up premier by default...

Let`s keep our eyes on the prize...

And lastly, there are some major political shoes to fall very soon...The scandals and crimes of the BC Liberals are being shown the light of day.

Cheers

"Gordon Campbell has announced his resignation and still no new potential leader has come forward..."
I think that's just a teeny bit disingenuous, considering you tarred him with a brush from Hell and people with bones in their closets are now scared to get into the ring with you.
About Carol, on the other hand, you hit the nail on the head. It was hard not to notice that this only came up (at least in the press) ONE DAY before the NDP meeting - thus giving no one other than Carol any time to organize.
I have hated to even think it, but she could be what President Obama is in the States - 'We are change' my ass, he is exactly like Bush before him; is that what we can expect if Carol lucks out and actually gets elected (which isn't as likely as you may think)?
What kind of people purport to one set of ideals while secretly upholding a completely different set? Clue: 8 letters, starts with Q.

Sadly, there is no hope for the NDP now. You are bang on why nobody will vote for her. She is simply too repugnant to vote for.

The Liberals can now nominate the village dogcatcher, who will soundly trounce this ridiculous women and a party run by morons.

I can only hope a real Liberal will run for the party leadership but doesn't seem much chance now.

Your recall campaign is done as well. The new Liberal leader will simply make James look like the fool she is and the recall voter stays home.

Sorry dude but you're done and James did ya - and all the rest of us as well.

Does anyone think that if the NDP are elected with any leader, we will see a reversal of what Gordon the Impaler has done to BC?

Crankypants said...

Let's face facts. Political parties don't give a tinkers damn about the province of BC nor the people that live here. Their only objective is to get their moment in the sun and reward those that got them there.

They love to talk the talk, but all fail to walk the walk.

Think about it. The squabbles going on in both the NDP and the Liberals have shunted the governance of BC and its citizens to the backburner while they decide who should be their frontperson. Their respective party associations, riding executives, etc. have only one agenda, which is to gain control of government.

No matter who is at the helm of whichever party that gains control of government, the rich get richer and the poor just grows in size. Those that enabled them to gain control expect to be rewarded and the party seldom fails to deliver.

Think about it. The Liberal Party is in disarray because of their leader and the NDP is riding high in every poll. All of a sudden one NDP MLA, Bob Simpson, makes one statement against the leader and everything goes to hell in a handbasket. The media is on it like white on rice. Doesn't this sound very familiar to Glen Clark's visit from the television crew while the RCMP were raiding his house? Something just doesn't smell right about what has been happening in both the NDP and Liberal parties.

It's time to think outside the box. What looked to be a slam dunk in the next election for the NDP has all of a sudden degenerated to nothing more than a gong show.

You're absolutely bang on. The only time Carole gets mad is when anyone in "her party" says what the vast majority of British Columbians are thinking. Rather than serving the NDP, they are expected to serve her. The way that meeting was run shows that the NDP is a farce when it comes to having honest debate. And those yeller scarves... Has she hired an image consultant from Dear Leader in North Korea? Anyways, I am sure there will be other choices besides Carole James and Liberals in next election.

No-one is going to come forward to fill Campbell's shoes. His resignation was just another of his dirty tactics. He's not leaving, and didn't intend to. He said, he would be around for some months, and would continue on with his dirty work. Sears is under threat, for having HST free sales days. Restaurants got a vendetta, for not supporting the HST. Campbell and Craig James, have ordered the RCMP to investigate, seven duplicate HST signatures. One of those victimized, was a very elderly lady, who was terrorized. So yes, Campbell, the king of all the other monsters, is very much in evidence. I totally believe Bennett, regarding Campbell's violent temper. Campbell is very low in character. To lie, deceive, break promises, thieve, and cheat to win, says it all. But not quite. No decent husband or father, would put his family through, such an ordeal. He has not one lick of concern for his family. Campbell puts himself first, as do all bully's.

If it's between, The Liberals or the NDP, I will vote for Carole James. At least, Carole is human, and shows compassion for the BC citizens. The BC Liberals, are for big business, and big business only. Campbell has thieved this province so badly, we will be decades, trying to clean up his mess. The election lie, the BCR wasn't for sale. The election lie, the HST wasn't on Campbell and Hansen's radar. The BC Liberals have been a litany of, lies, corruption, underhanded tactics. That is what their party, has been based on. Can you imagine, Hansen or De Jong, being premier? Hansen has been caught in far too many lies. De Jong, and his revolting cover up of, Campbell's corrupt sale of the BCR, turned the stomachs,of the decent people of BC. We have to have enough recalls to, wipe out the BC Liberal party, once and for all. Never have I seen such evil, in a political party, as the BC Liberals.

All the weird stuff that's going on in BC. I wonder if it's all about more private power projects in BC.

The resource ministries were reorganized, I assume that one reason is to streamline IPP licences.

Bill Bennett said the re-org was done without the Ministers knowing about it!

The Clean Energy Act paves the way for more IPP projects. I believe it was written by people from the IPP industry.

I'm curious what others think about this.

What the heck, I'll come right out and say it - Carol should go! It's not okay to be way behind your party in the polls. It's especially not okay if you've already lost two elections; one of which was practically handed to you on a platter. At this point one must ask - who the hell are you fighting for? Yourself and your clique or the impoverished and victimized people who make this province their home? You didn't come out hard in the last election, you didn't come out hard for the Recall, you slipped by in your party by not having a proper vote or discussion about your leadership, you don't have a platform on your lousy web site, what hell have you done to deserve being elected? Why don't you come out and tell us what you would do about the HST if elected. Why don't you come out and say whether or not you plan to roll back the really nasty decisions made by Campbell on the Railgate, Hydrogate, Destruction of Fisheries, Ipps, Run of River, even the damn Kemano? You had all this amunition in the last election and...??? Just go. A real leader would be holding the leadership race now to be ready in case there is an election in the spring. A real leader would have been and would be grooming a few successors to step in at times like these. A real leader would have a shadow government groomed and waiting to step in with a well planned progressive agenda. If not here, where? If not now, WHEN?

And I'm not finished yet, Carole James. At least a few hundred thousand of us sat here in BC and watched in anger and disbelief over the years of the Campbell government as they PLUNDERED this province. Where the F&**K were you? So it's not just that we don't need you or the abominable one - we need a whole new system of government. We don't just need a seat at the governing table, it's our table and our HOUSE! So get out! What we need here is a real government which will take just as cavalier an approach to the contracts signed by the Liberal government as they did to the trust we vested in them. You think we can't have elections and referendums without somebody's 'permission'? What would you do if there were an illegal election at the same time as the BS election and an honest and forthright people's organization got way more votes than all the establishment politicians put together? Think about it - it can happen.
