Rod Mickeburgh, in The Globe, has the story of the BC Liberal Lickspittles who are suddenly appalled by the way they and theirs have been treating the most vulnerable amongst us:
...In an emotional presentation to the legislature on Monday, veteran Liberal MLA Randy Hawes expressed deep concern that services being provided are inadequate, and adults with severe developmental challenges – to the distress of their families – are being moved out of group homes where many have lived for years.
But here's the thing.
What will the Lickspittles actually do about it?
Other than shedding a few crocodile tears for the Media, what will they actually do to reverse and make good on all the slashing and burning that they have been a party to for years for no good reason at all?
And I remind everyone that it is our most helpless and vulnerable fellow British Columbians who have been forced to pay the most for all of the rusted-out and tarnished Golden Era edifices that are still being controlled by the cronies and the henchpersonnages of the Era's former leader.
Most egregious of these edifices is the disgustingly overpriced $600 million carpet atop the BC Place Marshmallow that was arranged for AFTER the 2008 recession hit. Furthermore, I assert that the retractable roof and all the other goo-gaws associated with it were really forced upon us for no other reason than to justify a long ago planned-for Casino-Industrial-Complex/Land-Jacking in Downtown Lotusland.
Meanwhile, the life partner of one T. Richard Turner (yes, THAT paragon of the most virtuous of the finest of the fine friends of Mr. Gordon M. Campbell, who also once had the Minister then responsible for the Marshmallow on speed-dial, Mr. T. Richard Turner) makes like Marie Antoinette over the issue of our most vulnerable....
Heckfire....If you want to see a man defending those who would let us eat cake forever and ever after, just watch this 1 minute clip of the former Marshmallow Minister that was originally filmed by Sean Holman....It contains everything you need to know how the BC Liberal lickspittles that are STILL running this province really operate when called upon to defend the indefensible.
(although, please note how The Dean, just off stage right, tries to give the then Marshmallow Minister a lifeline that he is not quite sharp enough to grasp firmly)
