BC Liberal Leadership Derby: Everybody Knows The Horses...

....But What About The Jockeys?

It's something we hear so little about.

But it matters.

For all kinds of reasons, strategic and otherwise.

Take the so-called new-and-improved, leaner, meaner, nastier George Abbott for example.

Who's riding him so hard along the backstretch as he tries to charge, hard, up the inside "kitten-free" lane anyways?

Could it be this guy?

And if it is that guy, is it not interesting in the extreme that another guy who once rode trains to a $300,000 daily-double, is rumoured, perhaps, to be riding she who suffered that recent bout of 'cat scratch fever' back at the quarter-pole, Christy Clark?


Now, of course, if it turns out that the two fine fellows referred to above really are the jockeys for the two horses concerned, you may be asking yourself the following:

Why in the wide, wide world of sports (and sporting kings) would be they be going at each other, tooth-and-membership-nail, as they round the clubhouse turn and head for home, given that they have previously worked out of the same stable?


What if you were to think of it this way....

Might the braintrust/stable be running them, say, 1 and 1A?

(running the two horses I mean)

Please note....All the info for this wee bit of handicapping comes straight from the digital back issues of the racing form/backstage bible that can be found hidden beneath the saddles of every political paddock in British Columbia, Public Eye Online.
And all joking aside, why isn't anybody in the proMedia digging into who is really running (and financially backing) every single one of both major party's leadership candidates?....You think stuff like this doesn't matter?....If so, you are very, very wrong.....OK?

Good to see you back. We all know duty calls on occasion. So much material out there. A field day of sorts. I am looking forward to the rest of the BC Rail corruption questions. Other blog people have taken notice of BC Roofgate as well. It will be interesting indeedy to see who the jockeys really are.

Do you ever reflect on how irrelevant the BC Liberal horse race would be if the BC NDP had even as much as an ounce of competence?

I have.

I've stayed drunk and stoned since.

Dana, raise the daily dose and everything will seem irrelevant.

RossK, it seems we are progressively spinning toward the rule of Tweedledum and Tweedledee.

Dana said...

Nothing progressive about anything spinning in BC any more, Normie.

Norm Farrell said...

On the contrary Dana, we live in a world of spin directed by the Progressive

Norm is bang on.
