The Dance of the Dying Liberals

I can`t tell you how much I enjoy seeing the Campbell Liberals thrashing around and flailing away, it reminds me of John Cleese(Faulty Towers) beating his car with a tree branch(maybe the remaining Liberals will goose step their way into the next legislative session!)........

The rest of Canada must be laughing at us, a broken old lying premier clinging to power like a baby to a security blanket, an old silver haired prevaricator sitting in soiled diapers stinking up the joint and no one will change him,  a spineless batch of Liberal cabinet ministers who are too afraid to let go their grip on the conga line, as such they followed Campbell into the depths of hell.....Their new tough drinking laws have backfired on the economy, the hst has chased sales south, sales east and spiked the underground economy, consumer confidence is in the tank and nobody in the Liberal party has the courage to take ownership and heat for endorsing everything Campbell proposed without question........

It has come to my attention that the Effinngg beuracrat Craig James, the flunky, "The Temp" has sent out thousands of intimidating letters to people who may have signed a petition more than once, mean nasty letters in the form of ..."Jack Boots".......$10K fine or 2 years in jail for this offence, can you imagine, we lose a railway through Campbell lies and fraud, a corruption trial with $30 million in legal fees, the two defendents plead guilty, owe millions in legal fees, breach the public trust, ignore their oath, they get 2 years of going to work, going shopping, going for walks, going to the gym and sleeping in their own beds and Craig James flunky threatens the public with 2 years in jail for maybe signing a petition twice, Craig James has sat on this information since last summer and he waits until the eve of recall to fill mailboxes with a stern warning from a "Jack Boots"...Government, illegal gag laws, big corporate legal challenges and now Gestapo tactics!

As a canvasser I had a man who signed my petition really drunk(a friend brought him from the local pub to sign the petition), his signature and information was a mess, I didn`t count it in my daily total, the following week he signed again, this time sober, his information was perfect, Elections BC has not contacted me, my turn in sheets were perfect, and also, I had people say they signed Bill Tieleman`s on line anti-hst petition, I informed the people that Tieleman`s on line petition had no standing, they had to sign the real physical official petition ....1/3 of 1%  fraud, who`s to say it wasn`t BC Liberal voters trying to screw up the petition,....It doesn`t matter, the "Jack Boots" ...Correspondence was out of line, I am calling for the immediate dismissal of Craig James for his actions....Who authorized this response, did Campbell or Hansen or the Attorney General office have any knowledge of these letters being sent,.....Someone must answer, reconvene the legislature and remove Craig James...That was sick, Gordon Campbell must answer that question, who authorized Craig Jame`s actions and ordered it done now, why was it timed like that.....

Falcon is praising Carole Taylor, others are begging Dianne Watts, John Furlong has been asked over and over again, a tired old ugly Gordon Campbell sitting on his nest of poison egg policies guarding them like a mother goose, no courage from within, Coleman, Abbot, Ding Dong, Falcon, all of them thrashing and flailing their head and arms like Elaine Benis dancing in an old Seinfeld re-run, the BC Liberals are desperate for anyone, a superstar to keep their party`s chances of even being the official opposition alive, ......There will be no superstar....

Carole Taylor is old and tired, Falcon can beg and drink champagne out of her slippers and Carole Taylor still won`t  come on board, ....Furlong would rather have all his teeth pulled over being called names in opposition,...Others have even mentioned Christy Cluck Cluck Clark as a possible Liberal leader, I would love it, considering all the lies Clark has said on air, her bizzaar statements attacking teachers, attacking road-side memorials, her attacks on the town of Tofino, I have so many braindead statements from Cluck Cluck that her polical future is all but dead, how much money did David Hahn deliver to the BC Government, $400 million..$500 million..$600 million, what was your on-air retraction Cluck Cluck...

And the big name Dianne Watts, let me spell out it to my regular BC Liberal MLAs who read us.......Dianne Watts and her husband Brian Watts got a good thing going in Surrey, they love her in Surrey, she has no challengers, her husband Brian Watts is a `preferred` contractor and supplier for the city of Surrey....From everything I read he does good work for a decent price, his plastics company is doing just fine,  but the bottom line is Dianne Watts does not want to raise Gordon Campbell`s poison spawn babies, the hst, unsustainable tax cuts, Translink digging in pockets, car levys for over-priced transit projects with still nothing south of the border,and the tolls, those darn Port Mann tolls will crush many,with shadow tolls on the sea to sky highway you can bet the Fraser valley will expect the same relief.......massive deficits, education budgets stripped to the bone, health budget woefully short, many many seniors moving to Surrey,  BC Ferries in disarray, many questions on tax indemnity and BC Rail....Falling hydro prices with cheap power aplenty, a BC Liberal fiscal disaster!.....

Dianne Watts will not be a 4 year sacraficial lamb while the BC Liberals rebuild.........One of the four horsemen will have to throw their hat in the ring, toss Campbell aside, reject his policies and give up 4 years of life sitting as opposition, that is a best case scenario for Coleman, Falcon, Ding Dong or Abbot....

The more likely story that will play out will be, Kash Heed bi-election...bi-elections in Caribou, Comox Valley, Oak Bay, Kamloops north, Point Grey.....Those loses to the NDP will result in a general election with Campbell still their leader, or one of the horsemen, either way.....

You can bob and weave, twist and shout, you can piss in the wind, you can pray for a natural disaster but all you are really doing is........A perfect Elaine Benis Liberal Death Dance!

From what I have been able to get from the media reports, tose that signed the petition more than once got nasty letters from Craig James, but are facing no possibility of fines or jail time. Apparently, one person received such a letter and swears that he only signed once. He was on the late news last night and I believe that he will be on Bill Good's show on Wednesday.

The ones that are facing possible fines or more are seven canvassers. Mr. James has forwarded some unknown information to the RCMP for further investigation.

As Chris Delaney states, this whole excercise smacks of political interference. How many of those that signed more than once did so because they were hoping to sabotage the initiative? In other words, how many BC Liberal supporters were out to discredit the whole excercise?

A bigger question is, how likely is is that a canvasser would remember each and every person that signed? The day my wife and I signed, we were in the presence of Mike Farnworth and some lady at the Art Knapps store in Port Coquitlam. If I had gone back a couple of weeks later and tried to sign again, would either one of them recognized me? I doubt it.

There are a couple of things that really bother me. First of all, Bruce Ralston was quoted in today's paper as stating that Craig James was just doing his duty and he is basically beyond reproach. If the rolls were reversed and the NDP was in power, do you think that any BC Liberal Party member would be so understanding and state likewise? I doubt it. The other thing is the fact that Craig James is still in charge of Elections BC. He has obviously been a shill for Gordo, and I have very little confidence that he will put up as many roadblocks as he can once people begin to register recall campaigns.

I want to see the BC Liberal Party gone, but if the likes of Ralston are so stupid as to condone the actions of people such as Craig James, are the BC NDP Party worthy of being their successors? At this point, I think that the jury is out.

The recall volunteers are like thoroughbreds in a starting gate. We can't wait to start and there are a lot of us!!!

And here I thought all along that Carole James is doing Elaine's Dance!

Hugh said...

Craig James's letter is posted here.

http://therealstory.ca/

James sees the signing of the petition more than once as a "serious breach of process."

Wasn't the way the HST was introduced also a serious breach of process?

Evil Eye said...

What we have, with the dire legal consequences threatened against petition canvassers, is nothing more than fascist/Nazism, from a discredited premier and a largely discredited BC Liberal Party.

It is pure "nacht un nebel", night and fog tactics by an utterly corrupt bureaucrat, who did his damnedest to derail the HST petition.

The RCMP investigate double signing....now that is a joke, as their track record of late is pretty dismal. Those 7 canvassers had better watch out for a stray Tazer shot or two or five.

Has this province gone utterly mad? Is this how mean and petty Gordon Campbell is? No wonder no one wants to run for the Liberal leadership.

cherylb said...

Calm down everyone. Gordo is on his way out and his former gang will deal with James. They have to. If they want to have a hope in hell of ever getting another seat in this province they will need to call him off.

The RCMP still have to play ball with the BC Liberals. They are in danger of not getting their contract renewed with the province. That is also why, they refused to do any further investigation of, Campbell's corrupt sale of the BCR. Their image is already in tatters, BC citizens are angry at the crimes the RCMP have been involved in, to the point, they don't even want the RCMP, as an icon for Canada. The BC people, will never trust Craig James, he has the typical BC Liberal attitude, lie, deceive and cheat. There is nothing beneath his dignity he won't do, to harm the citizens of BC, also typical of the BC Liberals. C.James, kisses butts for a living, he has no sense of personal pride. As long as we have this evil government in office, BC will not be safe. We must recall enough mla's, to bring this, shameful government down. However, we must watch out for Craig James, he can't be trusted with the counting of votes.

Re: Rally Request

Thank you for your electronic booking request of October 27, 2010 and subsequent meeting on
November 1st, 2010 wherein you have requested to use the legislative grounds as a kick-off to
launch a public awareness campaign to recall Ida Chong. You have requested said event for
Saturday, November 20, 2010.

Your application has been reviewed and I regret to advise that I am unable to approve it as it is an
inappropriate use of the legislative grounds.

Yours truly,

Karen L. Aitken

Re: Rally Request

To hell with Karen L. Aitken (who is she Craig James' girlfriend?). The legislature grounds belong to the people of BeeCee and as long as people aren't committing crimes there IT IS A PUBLIC PLACE.

Besides it ain't like the BC liaRs are using the legislature, except for the basement so the PABlum Brigade can carry on their Goebbels inspired war against the people of British Columbia.

cherylb said...

Two comments:

One, does anyone have Ms. Aitken's email address? It would be good to send her a message about the appropriate use for "our" backyard.

Two, the question.

Are you in favour of extinguishing the HST (Harmonized Sales Tax) and reinstating the PST (Provincial Sales Tax) in conjunction with the GST (Goods and Services Tax)? Yes/No?

If you read this question, is it just me or does it sound like we would be extinguishing the HST to be replaced with the PST in conjunction with the GST on the items currently covered by the HST? In other words, no change.....

Grant G said...

Cherylb........

It does appear to read like that, but that question can be put directly to Colin Hansen...

It`s either a yes or no answer..Are the once pst exempt items going back to 5% gst only..

If the answer is everything remains at 12% tax...

Well, can a politically dead party committ suicide twice?

Cheers

Chinese Sneaker$ said...

Cheryl B,

That's the way i read it--"no change".

It's a version of the ole' rub--heads i win, tails you lose.

The tax monies will be had either way.

Why would it be different with this bunch.

It's always the hustle, right down to the bitter end.

There are moments when i wonder if we'll ever be rid of 'm.

And it appears that Diane Watts is considering taking over Gordo's spot. My, my, how quickly her spots can change. From a resounding no, to a maybe I will consider it, I need to take the time to think about it.
Diane Watts, a lieberal in sheeps clothing???????????

Grant G said...

Dianne Watts isn`t leaving Surrey.....No one says, "I`ll let you know next week"...With a press release...

Can`t you see what is happening....Watts has angry taxpayers, taxpayers who are mad at Campbell and Translink...

And you think Watts is going to give up her bat shield and waffle and cave...With deficit budgets....

Never mind...You`ll see

Did people miss this on Campbell's B.S. address to the province? He said, he will be around for some months. He also said, he will continue with his dirty work. He isn't leaving. Campbell is too full of, spite, malice, hate and is too vindictive to just quit. His address to the province, was just another one of his dirty tactics, to stall for time. I knew as soon as I heard his speech, it was all B.S. He wasn't going anywhere. There is still a lot more, he wants to thieve from this province and the people in it. Do not people see, any minister who tries to oppose Campbell, won't be a minister for long. It is amazing, how much people willing to sell their souls for, to the devil named Campbell.

Campbell is still crap, just under the disguise of, a resignation that changes absolutely nothing.

Elwood said...

Grant, Watts said that she can't be a LIEberal savior and you said that she will obviously decline with a news release next week. Then why is Watts on the Billy Boring show next Monday to announce her leadership intentions? What's her game?

Grant G said...

Elwood...I gave you the answer on Dianne Watts....She`s out....

But. have you ever seen a politician not go to a photo-op?
