Throne speech, August 2009 edition

The Throne Speech was delivered today in Victoria.

This is likely the last one before the Olympics as the province gears up for the world spotlight in February. Is this Campbell's last stand before bowing out after the games, or will he stay to hit the 10 year mark and beyond?

There will probably be a call for a leadership after the 2010 Games are over.

Don't forget, there is the little matter of BCGEU contracts which expire in mid Spring.

Plus there's the ongoing BC Rail sale.

If there is a leadership, be there when it happens.

Guess is sometime in late July or October 2010.

A call for leadership after the 2010 Games are over!
Which leader - Campbell or James?

And does "the call" come from within the party membership, or from the always unhappy rabble?

Both parties have the means to set a leadership review, but there's always the blind loyalists who want that stopped.

If that leadership review ever happened in the BC Liberals there would be cries of "not being with the leader" and all kinds of nonsense.

Members who are worth anything consider the welfare of the party first, ahead of its leader.

how many politicians does it take to screw up a light bulb?

As many as you're willing to vote in!

Very true.

There's one BC Liberal that won the election in Burnaby-Lougheed that isn't a bright light bulb.

Anyone who gets elected three times in a row is obviously doing something right.

Considering that no one donated to his campaign last time except the BC Liberal Party.

Wonder if he'll wear his Scout Uniform today?

He didn't but as usual, Harry still has a seat at the back of the bus, but he isn't in the absolute last row of the BC Liberal Caucus...

The reason people voted for the Liberals BC last election is not because people had a love affair with Gordo. It's because they didn't trust the NDP's financial acumen. Which in the long run was probably a good decision by the electorate.

What BC needs is a real alternative. Not a a party with a large percentage of loonies who are in the pockets of the labour unions. If the NDP is the alternative BC will never have an alternative party they can trust to be capable of running a province properly.

The NDP proved this with the governments they provided BC when they were elected.

and just what that alternative might be?

The BC Conservatives? Not likely.

The BC Liberals have run the province none too shabby, but their party is the pits. One lousy made up website, totalitarian control everywhere and they're not exactly welcoming new members and volunteers with welcome arms.

A few of the riding associations in Burnaby barely exist, and those that do (such as Burnaby Lougheed) are under too much control of the MLA.
