With 13 of the 40 NDP MLAs in full revolt, Michael Smyth of the Province figures that the Party poobahs (including union bosses) will get to leader Carole James and convince her that the gig is up.
Amazingly, James has shown she is about the last person in BC to realize this reminding me of tin-eared Stockwell Day and his disastrous tenure as the Canadian Alliance leader.
Is this going to be another example of ego over reality or will James clue in after today’s emergency caucus meeting? (see here)
We have the Liberals going through a leadership race with all the internal turmoil that it brings and the complete implosion of the NDP, so where the heck are the BC Conservatives? Apparently still drinking their own bath water telling each other how great a job that they are all doing.
You couldn’t ask for the stars to align any better for a new party to emerge but of course you must have leadership to make that happen even in this unbelievably ideal political climate. See some earlier posts on this bunch here, here and here
Update: The NDP emergency caucus meeting has been postponed citing “they need more time”…how can you not laugh at this soap opera? (see here)
