1) We have a platform? And you read it?
Elizabeth May and the Greens, it seems, were somehow unaware that they had a platform with a number of rather misogynist parts in it related to domestic violence and divorce! When they found out "Julian Morelli, the party’s communications director, said he’s thankful the problems were brought to light. "It’s fair to say those specific areas are under review, big time,”"
Good to hear. But next time you folks might want to read your platform BEFORE putting it out there.
Because that is just one of those things that parties generally do.
2) Members? We have no members. Prove it.
What happens when you have a membership that is under the illusion that its leaders care what it thinks and that has, you know, gone through the motions of passing dozens of resolutions democratically at these funny things they hold called conventions, and that were then all bundled together into something called the NDP's policy book that was then put up on the party's website but that may have stuff in it that might not be what you want people to see because all you want them to see is what the Great Leader decides will be the ONLY THINGS ANYONE IS SUPPOSED TO TALK ABOUT come election time?
Well you simply make those polices disappear. See how easy that is?
No policy book...no problem.
|There never was a policy book, was there Winston?|
Vote for the cat everyone:
A new candidate is sticking his whiskers into the political ring, with the hope of becoming Canada’s next prime minister.This might interfere with Tommy Douglas' Mouseland however!
Earl Grey, the leader of the Tuxedo Party of Canada, is a cat, but that’s not stopping him from running for office.
4) You are kidding right?
So if you are a Liberal cynic and hypocrite, who do you haul out of the crypt to promote your newly minted anti-austerity platform? Paul Martin of course!
Makes sense to me.
5) He came to me as a vision...a vision that appeared in my Earth Origins Organic Spread.
Thus ends our fourth look at the Grand Farce. See you next week!
