BC Liberal leader - 2 months to go!!

And it looks pretty lackluster. No real 'vision', exciting 'platform' or overwhelming support for any of them.

But for a discussion, Martyn Brown does his own evaluation:

Why do people who fancy themselves "fiscal conservatives" not scream at hidden debt accumulated in the past dozen years? Or, do they only object to spending on social programs?

If the last number of years are any indication on leadership campaigns throughout north America (this is every leader of any political party NA wide)
They will pick from bottom of the barrel
When you have to start compromising yourself and your morals for the people around you, it’s probably time to change the people around you.

Have not even paid any attention to the candidates, better things to do then listen to politicians BS.

I think generally from somewhat lower than the bottom lately.
I have never tried Yoga but I bent over to pick up my keys once so I'm pretty sure I wouldn't like it.

It's rather nice to have a BC premier who is second highest in approval at 48% (One % point less than Wall) than have a premier with a dismal 31% approval rate.

But the poll also found Clark is the most disliked candidate running in this spring’s election.

^^ Yes, NDP'ers prefer NDP premiers and it is something of a novelty too.

It's going on 22 years with no elected NDP premier in BC. I don't expect the province to be stupid enough to ever elect one of those NDP bozos ever again. I guess the NDPers are pretty excited that Horgan has 48% popularity against no one, though. That'll all change in a couple of months when the new BC Liberal leader rips the union buffoon to shreds.
Hey Horgan, orange and green mixed together make brown, and that's the colour of crap!

deJong - too old
Wilkinson -too arrogant
Stone - too young and arrogant
Watts - a Christy clone who will likely be the next BCLP leader

Doesn't matter who wins. It's going to take a lot longer than 4 years for British Columbians to forget those torturous 16 BCLP years.

Mr. Horgan was indeed elected , and now he is the premier.
How did Christy do in Vancouver point grey in 2013 ? Oh , that's right , she LOST.

I don't expect the province to be stupid enough to ever elect one of those NDP bozos ever again.


They were stupid enough to elect corrupt Liberals 3 times in a row.
Apparently 48% approve of Horgan ( don't think he is a bozo) I guess you can call him a bozo if you want , but I always consider the source. In this case , it is an extremely partisan internet nobody , so ?

I guess the NDPers are pretty excited that Horgan has 48% popularity against no one, though.


Way to rewrite the poll to your liking. It wasn't asking who they prefered , it asked if they approved of Horgan.
And yes , by the way , NDP'ers are probably pretty happy about the 48% approval , just like Lie'bs were happy when Christy Clark had a 48 % approval rating. Wait............ when was that ? March 2017 31% , March 2013 25% , June 2015 30%. Just as I suspected , Christy Clark has NEVER had a 48 % approval rating , NEVER.

That'll all change in a couple of months when the new BC Liberal leader rips the union buffoon to shreds.

I'll wait and see what happens. Remember the old saying about glass houses ? There is little that any of the prospective Liberal leaders (term used loosly) can throw at Horgan that can't come back to crush them like the roaches they are.

For you it "doesn't matter who wins." Of course NDP'ers like yourself will not like ANY of the Liberal leadership hopefuls. You're against them all. I'm much more interested to hear who traditional Liberal voters and independents like. There are some strong candidates there. For example, Andrew Wilkinson is both a physician and a lawyer but you dismiss him as "too arrogant." LOL. Maybe "too smart." Anyway, we know that NDP'ers won't like any of the candidates but thanks anyway for your "analysis."

Not true , I like DeJong , Todd Stone , and Watts for the job. Can't wait for any one of them to step to to the plate. Should be entertaining.

Shame that Rich Coleman isn't trying his luck , I think the voters can identify with him.

What she's given to this province should never be forgiven,"
said Coleman, before realizing his mistake.

It's going to take longer than four years to repair the damage left behind by the NDP in their short term as government.

When it comes to intelligence and the NDP, that's a big oxymoron. They are afraid of real intelligence. That's why they call him arrogant. Seems like he is always talking down to them due to his education. Must be an NDP thing, not having the capability to understand intellectual jargon.

I really don't believe AW or TS are arrogant but I guess if someone has a certain level of education it may feel that way.

Nice to hear opinions from the side of the intellectually challenged electorate, it helps to explain why we have a "committee government".
Why use a big word when a diminutive one will suffice.
