Shall we speak the truth then.
Kathy Dunderdale's policies and approach to governance is her real epithet. It should be the political epithet for the Progressive Conservative Party and it would be if the voters had any say.
The failure was not just the messenger but the message.
I don't know about you but a little bit of lipstick on pig changes nothing, it is still a pig unless you lack the sense to see the difference.
The rot has seeped into our political institutions. Accountability, transparency, honesty has become irrelevant with the blessing of Tory stalwarts who want us to passively change the channel and forget their failures.
Do not be fooled. Dunderdale's announcement was as scripted as the terms of Reference of the PUB's review of Muskrat Falls. It just came a few weeks earlier than originally planned.
The timing was born in the government's charm campaign of the Fall which produced a remarkable turnaround in the December CRA polls related to satisfaction with the government.
That poll showed the corner had been turned. Voter satisfaction with the government had increased substantially. Mostly satisfied jumped from 28 to 38 per cent, while the dissatisfied numbers decreased.
The Premier's poor performance during the blackout threatened those precious gains. That is why she left this week, to give her party and the cancerous agenda a chance to build on the key government satisfaction numbers.
Okay, we have a new Premier.
What does that change?
The communication "problem" has not changed because the propagandists and the publicly financed propaganda machine have absolutely no interest in engaging, listening or backing down on the polities and behaviors that have sent the party to political purgatory in public opinion.
Since the newly appointed Premier quotes scripture today, so shall I:
Now the serpent was more crafty than any other beast of the field that the Lord God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God actually say, ‘You shall not eat of any tree in the garden’?”
The simple believes everything, but the prudent gives thought to his steps.
O simple ones, learn prudence; O fools, learn sense.
We still have the same tired arrogant faces at the helm.
If there has ever been a time for leadership in the long anals of missteps, giveaways and missed opportunities that litter the history of this place.....
This is the time.
