Kwan-Dive?

December 15, 2010 at 9:02 pm 9 comments

She may not be the picture of a dramatic white swan about to end her career, in fact , even a molting chicken somehow doesn’t quite give her the disgrace she exudes.  But make no mistake, she’s cut her neck off politically, however, that seems to tie in with her screaming banshee ‘chicken running round with her head cut off’ style.

Jenny Kwan brought British Columbia NDP leader, Carole James, down.  Or did she?  There’s no doubt Carole is a leader, and one of new paradigm style (consensus – hey Jenny, ever heard of Nunavut, it works there, how come you don’t like it for here?).   Within hours of her devastating wake, The Vancouver Sun’s Vaughn Palmer had this to say.

What can you do if you’re peeved as hell, like me?  A friend is promoting the idea of emailing Jenny Kwan and telling her you don’t like what she did.  Jenny.Kwan.MLA@leg.bc.ca

Here’s what I had to say to the fledgling fowl:

Dear Ms. Kwan,

I don’t like what you did , which was stepping out of line and past the constitution of the NDP and what it’s members had already voted and decided on, and forced Carole James into a corner.
What you did was old style and upholds the adversarial system we are all working so hard to grow away from.  I don’t think you understand Carole’s style of politics which is concensus driven (how democratic and socialist is that, it’s like EVERYTHING!).  It’s all apart of sustainable governance and the world is turning to it.  I’m sorry if you can’t quite grasp sustainability, I could try make it easier for you, but somehow I doubt you would want to sit down and learn from me.  Perhaps you could do a quick study on Nunavut?
Next time you cry , “misogynist’ , ‘old geezer’ ‘extinct’ or anything along those lines, please remember you are looking in your own mirror.
It’s time for change alright, a time to get you and your dirty dozen either up to speed with the rest of the world or out of the party all together.
Do you fully understand that  you not only hurt the party but people’s feelings?  I’m talking people here, us voters….how do you think your antics make us feel?  Please reflect on this.

—————————————————————————————————————

While the whole fiasco will move people into their rightful paths, that doesn’t mean we can just let the grieving go ‘pooossshshhhh’ like a puff of wind.  To that end, I say don’t be surprised if I do more posts on Jenny Penny ‘the sky is falling in’.  As a matter of fact, I’m trying to find the knife she put in Carole’s back, so am busy in the forensics lab looking at serrated edges, switch-blades and the like.  I keep hearing a voice saying, ‘Think Dollar Store”.

    Actually, the Group of 13 made a very courageous stand for democracy in the party. I’ve heard a detailed description of the situation from Doug Routley, a person of great intergity. His account fully corroborates Jenny Kwan’s statement.

    You said:
    “:get you and your dirty dozen either up to speed with the rest of the world or out of the party all together.”

    Funny kind of consensus, that.

    The sneering tone of your posting is exactly like the harrassment that was heaped on dissenting MLAs and supporters over the past several weeks. Have you noticed that you have totally destroyed yiour own credibility?

    Speaking of consensus. If you’re such an expert, you should be aware that “consensus” government also exists in the Northwest Territories. Having lived there for 25 years, I can tell you that consensus government is actually a thin disguise for a cabal of federal Liberal adnerents, that in the absence of party platforms there is little meaningful political dialogue during election campaigns, and there is still less accountability between elections.

    1. I’m not an MLA .
    2. I’m using a style of comedy called sarcasm , Kwan’s dirty work was no joke.
    3. Kwan went against the constitution of the NDP, which is member vote and that vote saw 84% voting NOT to have a leadership review.
    4. Call consensus what you will, ( I prefer ‘consensus minus 1’), it’s a step further to augment democracy.

    The group did nothing for democracy….but them I take it you are not aware of the purest form of democracy , which is the Iriquois Constitution. Kwan and her gang took democracy back a few notches.

    Comment again once you’ve done your homework.

    Doug Routley? Surely you jest. If you want good commentary try Vaughn Palmer, he’s an outsider and has some brains.

    Kwan was out of her league from day one. The rest of the dozen simply lack the brains or know how to ever advance under anyone’s leadership, it’s pure sour grapes.

  • 4. Island NDPer  |  December 18, 2010 at 7:39 pm

    @Grotto

    Actuallly, the information I have from Doug Routley was in the form of a verbal report at a meeting.

    Doug was at the centre of things, unlike Vaughn Palmer. Doug’s account of what went on behind the scenes is highly credible, and, as I said earlier, is totally consistent with Jenny Kwan’s statement.

    I would be interested in learning how you drew your conclusions about the abilities of the other MLAs. Do you know them all personally? The BC Legislature sits so little that it would be difficult to judge the qualities of a back-bencher on the basis of performance in the house. You made an awfully strong statement, so I presume you have some sort of factual basis. Please elaborate.

  • 5. harpervalley  |  December 18, 2010 at 9:16 pm

    Hmmmm….me thinks Island and Grotto are on different pages. Hey! Get off those pages, they are trying to do their job in the legislature!!!! Down , you naughty boys 😀

  • 6. Grotto  |  December 20, 2010 at 10:53 am

    Routley’s perspective is subjective. Palmer is well noted for his objectiveness.

    If I can’t, by your standards, judge caucus members by lack of the legislature sitting, then how can you judge Routley? You set yourself up.

    Ever heard of reading Hansard?

  • 7. Island NDPer  |  December 20, 2010 at 3:18 pm

    Routley was there. Palmer wasn’t.

    Palmer’s “objectiveness” (I think you menat to say ” objectiivity”) is a matter of opinion. A great many well-informed people would disagree with you.

    How do I judge Mr. Routley? By speaking with him face-to-face regularly. As I’ve known quite a few senior politicians personally, I have a well-deveopled bullshit detector. Doug passes easilty.

    Have I heard of reading Hansard? I read and researched Hansard frequently when I worked in government.

    This is getting boring. Bye.

  • 8. Grotto  |  December 20, 2010 at 6:11 pm

    Yes, you’re bullshit is boring all right, at least we can agree on that! Gimme a break about Routley having any type of objectivity, I mean, you shot your credibility all to hell. But then maybe you like being a laughing stock?

  • 9. harpervalley  |  December 20, 2010 at 8:36 pm

    This just in , folks….world mainstream media reports it will only gather the perspective of world leaders themselves when it comes to the state of world affairs or their nation’s. World Media spokesperson, I.P. Nickels says the leaders are there at the events so are the most objective.

    Wow, just think, no more critics, objectifiers, hey, blogs might even get banned but ach, just pulling your leg on that one.

    It’s been reported that the Ghost of Goebels past will be the spokesperson for the media group. OH yay!
