From March 14 Maclean's interview:

They’re deliberately obscuring the record. They used the same malicious tactics against the last NDP leader. I’m not going to sweat it.

So in April 2016 John dislikes it, January 2017 John likes most of it and wants to write his own, now he is back to saying he doesn't like it.

Seems like Dix whatever reporter or group he is in front of his story will change to what they want to hear. When your story always changes you become unelectable. Same crap as Dix and likely to be the same result and you will wonder how for another 4 years.

Sure, whatever. Your favorite candidates always show their colors of inconsistency, no platform, no budget, no accountability all on a level worse that the BC Liberals, and you say that it the Liberals fault.

This is why they lose. It's always someone's fault so they never try to be a better party. We know the crap the Liberals are, and the NDP still looks worse. How crappy do you have to be to look worse than Christy....good grief.

Horgan has not released the NDP fully costed platform - neither have the Libs except to throw some money around to make people thing they are 'doing something'....

Keith Baldrey seems quite confident that Horgan will get to the issue - when the writ is dropped April 11:

Baldrey says while Horgan can give a speech that leaves an impression that everything is going to change, the details are in the nuts and bolts.

“And he’s yet to provide those. But he will, there will be a news conference and once he releases a fully costed election platform we’ll take it from there.”

Same old story. Last election again and again we heard "The costed platform is coming" and it never came....ever.

Same start and excuses this time.

And forget platform, you want to rule, the current government has a budget out, put out your own budget, that will be your platform and the people will decide.

Since they plan to run a massive deficit after prosperity they most likely can't do such a thing and hope to get elected so they try the "trust us" crap again.

Quit embarrassing yourself with your ignorance:

It was released on April 16, 2013 - voting day was May 14, 2013.

You said costed platform. Never was any real costing done, it was a crappy jumble of big promises with no actual way to achieve them.

It was the real embarrassment and the fact that you thought some cute words were numbers is really the embarrassing part.

Maybe you couldn't manage the math at the last pages, eh?

But now you can apologize for saying that the NDP did 'not ever' put out a 2013 platform.

lol, I know where the lack of comprehension is when it comes to that document, hey, you can always hope that this time while they do the same garbage that has kept them out of office that it might work finally.

The liberals are not hard to beat, they really aren't. The fact NDP keep failing to do so should create a look inward after 16 years but here we are same crap.

Did I hear you deflect from your claim that you made that the NDP never put out a platform in 2013?

Oh, look!! Pandas!!

No I said fully costed platform. Just like they are saying this time. Not stats and quips. A real budget of what they will do and how. Your document did not have that, nor have they ever done so.

Same as last election. They want to win, table a budget that beats the liberals. Not the garbage they did last time and again so far this time.

As for deflecting I pointed out this fact twice now about the actual costing and you are talking about Pandas.

Sorry your horse in the race currently looks like a Donkey, maybe he will shape up, and maybe he will Dix out this election as they have the last number. Either way you aren't for a party that much is clear you are for a delusion for one group, and hate for another which blinds you.

Enjoy the darkness, I'll watch and see what happens and if anyone puts out something of value, but until they do, they aren't worth time.

You obviously have not been watching. You just swallow whatever the ChristyLibs and the bought and paid for MSM feed you with no interest in looking further.

Sad commentary on the LIV in BC.

YAWN. You are a broken record of rudeness, people point out the failing of the NDP and you just start insulting them. At least I know you're done attempting a discussion.

I am still waiting for you to retract your erroneous statement that the NDP in 2013 did not put out a platform.

You would be a perfect BC Lib in the House when it came to QP: "It's Question Period, not Answer Period.'

Deflect, disengage, detract..... and insult.
