Campbell the liar campaigned on no HST tax and he lied, Gordon Campbell knew he was going to ram it down our throats right after the election,and, Gordon the liar campaigned saying there would be no cuts to Health or education, he lied again and again and canceled programs for the disabled,for the autistic, for special Olympics, for students, Campbell has stuck his hands in the pockets of seniors in care homes, canceled over ten thousand surgeries, canceled MRIs, Campbell has cut re-training money for the un-employed, illegally cut gaming monies to charities,to sports and arts groups, on and on and on, Gordon Campbell has gored everybody`s ox except his rich corporate friends.
Fired British Columbia cabinet minister Bill Bennett compared Premier Gordon Campbell to a wife beater who intimidates his cabinet and caucus.
Carole Taylor would consider taking over the BC Liberal party now, not in three years but now, but there in lies the rub, Carole Taylor is prepared to take over the party this year. BUT, she will only take over the Liberal Party if she can rescind the HST post haste. She is prepared to throw Colin Hansen to the wolves, not just Hansen but every member of the BC Liberal caucus, so unless there is a 180 degree turn from the Liberals Carole Taylor is out, period.
"I didn't get back into cabinet for a year, year and a half," he said. "Those are the things that go on that you never hear about." Bennett told another story about being at a caucus retreat not long after he was first elected in 2001.
Bennett shared his thoughts with colleagues. "I made the mistake, I guess, of once again telling what I think is the truth. I said it to a couple of my colleagues and apparently they ran over and told the premier."
"To me no job is worth your self respect," he said. "To me it's more important to tell the truth than anything else. Being a politician for the past 10 years has been a challenge for me because I've always had a tendency to want to say what I think and what I think the truth is.
"I've been doing that lately and the system just won't put up with it so I'm once again a private member."
