It’s about time, by any standards of political heel-dragging, that the Harper appointees go gently into that good night, but look out, BC, Gordo “three martini” Campbell will be back in town, very shortly..you remember, the guy with the 9% approval rating, the guy who created the reno-viction plague, the guy who made ‘leaky condos’ a phrase for the ages in BC, the guy who dismantled the trades apprenticeship program and made elevator inspectors, hairdressers and others mere wage slaves with no training necessary…that guy, the one who got arrested for driving drunk in Hawaii while still Premiere of this province..who wept like a Southern televangelist on TV begging for forgiveness for his sins, but who refused to do the honorable thing and quit..you know, the abject liar who swore he wouldn’t implement the HST, pre-election, and did just that anyway…his reward from his overlord Harper? Why, a plummy job in the UK as a ‘commissioner’ at Canada House..whatever it is that the position entails, I would bet it pays well…I could go on and on, but, you get the drift…
Yep, that guy..and now he’ll be back, and we have to wonder how Christy Clark is gonna feel about that…she’s sunk almost as low in the polls, and his imminent return will make it so easy to do a comparison between them.., and I thought the RNC was the only excuse I had for popcorn….
