Earth calling Adrian Dix. Can you hear me or have you tuned out undecided voters? I bet you would have a 20 per cent lead in the polls if you had promised British Columbians nothing more than an open honest government. Your grandiose schemes – the ones Ms. Clark is claiming will bankrupt the province – should have been put on hold. The voters would have supported you anyway. Most of us are tired of listening to the self-serving repetitive rhetoric of our desperate fact-twisting premier. But her message slithers into the dark corners of the mind. Deep-seated fears of a four-year free-spending socialist debacle are unconsciously aroused.
You could have said your platform was an outline of what the NDP would like to do, but you would have to first look at BC’s financial books to see which programs are currently affordable. Emphasizing fiscal prudence would have made it a lot easier for some of us to vote for your party. If you end up losing this election at least you will know who to blame: that disappointed guy in your bathroom mirror.
