Thank heaven, Godawful Gordo is "stepping down". Does that mean leaving town? Leaving BC? Run out of town on a rail?
Thank heaven, he won't be premier much longer.
Gordon Wilson, former BC Liberal Leader, says: " ... he went wrong — where he went seriously wrong — I think was when he started to dispose of public assets ... "
Like, from almost Day One.
Comments are invited to mark the occasion when the most cruel, most destructive, most dishonest premier British Columbia has ever known, is stepping down.

So its Coleman or Falcon... the Hermann Goring and Reinhard Heydrich ... of BC Liberal Party?
BC will be a true 3rd World Tin Pot Dictatorship.
Falcon will rule as a dictator and I bet we finally will take things to the street!
Sorry, that has to go to Bill Bennett, the man who started us down the road that led to Gordo.
So, come onnn, E.A. 1:30,
let's try for a session of the BC Legislature ...
sure you do ... you remember what those are, don't you?
I look formard to an election in the summer of next year.
That's why the Premier is calling for a convention so that the BC Liberals can vote in a new Leader of the Government, not the voters of BC.
Let us all take comfort in kowing that, contrary to the MSM ridicules and arrogance - blogging is at least equal if not more, in influency public opinions.
Just maybe the MSM is now starting to realize that their reach is now limited and having sided with Campbell on most things, people will stop watching/reading as the case may be.
Thanks to every one of you bloody bloggers - it worked :-) Now to move on to the next phase ??
Perfect comment from one dorky guy about another. The exact stuff that made most normal humans wonder what the hell was wrong with Gordon Campbell apparently recommended him to the most powerful man in the land.
WHAT news reporters are saying things ...
Confirmed by Coleman's constituency guy, Jordan Bateman, today on the cluck cluck show.
Not the first fund raiser for Coleman either (I live in his riding).
Didn't Gordo look like a scared rabbit today? What have they got on him that made him quit?
Looks like more than what the media's making it out to be. He only drags Nancy out for show when he's really in *&%$.
I can only say that the "reporter" tracked Mr. Kinsella down to his lair, didn't have an interview with the great man, but they must have got something for them to say that HE was looking for five or six people to possibly fill the vacant slot left by the resigning premier.
I suppose the BC Liberals realize how important it is, might even go so far as to engage Charles Rivers Associates to do a study to ensure the fairness of the process.
Others have pointed out that he basically gave Martyn Brown - who would no doubt have be out of a job as soon as Campbell left - a nice soft landing, and brings Paul Taylor (an old friend) back in to the government scene.
He also managed to stick it to his eventual successor, who now faces either delivering on Campbell's promised tax cut, or actually reversing it and facing the wrath of an already unhappy voter.
His successor had also better have some idea of how Campbell planned on magically getting rid of the HST if 50% + one voted to do so, despite there being no obvious mechanism in the deal to accomplish that.
And should the NDP think that's a Liberal problem, they had better consider that if a Liberal MLA or two falls to recall, you'll see others abandon the party to save their skins. Which means Carole James could suddenly find herself premier long before the next election.
All she's said so far on the subject of the HST is "the election is a long way off" (which it might not be) and "we'll tell Ottawa we want look at re-negotiating the deal."
I'm sure Harper is going to be real eager to get together with the new Socialist premier from BC to re-do the HST. He'll tell her to get stuffed.
Campbell is still playing his game. He's announced he's leaving. But he's not atually leaving just yet. How many times has he announced the Evergreen line? Didn't he make a big "anouncement" about Site C a while back? Pictures of him in a hard hat. Any shovels in the ground (or actual funding) for either of those projects?
He may be around for months, during recall, during the leadership contest, during the HST debates. An boil on the face of the Liberal party, but not doing Carole James any favours as she faces her own leadership review right after the referendum.
Carole posted 30 additional questions for premier Campbell about BC Rail the other day. Here's one for her (and those hoping to take Campbell's place as leader of the Liberals):
If 50% plus one vote to get rid of the HST and you are premier, will you get rid of it? And, if yes, how?
Tonnes of media BS tidbits on Gordo the beloved man while Campbell the scumbag and the real players like Lara and Mary P. actually hide behind the hype.
CBC TV coverage shameful blow-job since Tony came over CBC and is looking more like CanWest and CTV everyday.
The media can't hammer too hard since they have to bury their own past inter-action with the Grits.
And Carole James again just being a fucking dish-rag on the resignation.
As to the lavish praise from Harper and "Doris" Day, to paraphrase an anon above - just what you would expect two creeps to say about another creep!
I'm actually not that happy to see him go, as everytime people see his face it reminds them how venal is the BC Liberal Party. However, I am optimistic that people are finally getting it, in spite of the lapdogs of PostMedia etc.
Criminal charges would be nice and not just against Campbell.
I also agree with the commentor above who advises Carole James to reconsider her stubborness, though I'm confident that they don't have the level of blackmail on her to make her step down, her only fault his her general incompetence as a leader. No one who can lose to a scandal ridden prevaricating, drunken adulter TWICE, deserves a third chance to go up against what can't help be be a candidate with less baggage.
