Man alive, when I read ‘most’ of the details about Andrew Wilkinson winning the election to be the Leader of the BC Liberals, I ended up more confused than ever!
Westcoastpugnacious logo wanted to add different words into the headline..incestuous ..unhealthy ..inbred ..unwholesome ..interconnected. Why? A name and a political action that dismayed me. The full report will follow, however the name that sadly resonated with me … Sukh Dhaliwal, please be patient and digest this … Some Watts supporters were surprised at the way the voting broke when Lee dropped out. Instead of his support going to the other outsider, it went to insider Wilkinson by a two-to-one margin … fishy?
More than one Liberal outsider drew attention to the fact that Lee’s organizer in the South Asian community was Sukh Dhaliwal, a longtime federal Liberal and no fan of the Conservative Watts. His recruits may well have been instructed to make their second choice anyone but Watts.
The ‘democratic’ values I try to keep are appalled at the open fact that a group of voters would vote as a block…when instructed.
Now, not mentioned is that Sukh Dhaliwal is a recycled ex-politician with a less than pristine [being polite] reputation: Sukh Dhaliwal [ex-politician/ Wants To Be Recycled.
Now you can understand why ‘Smelly’ was in the headline.
Back to reports on the election and Wilkinson. Interesting $$ revelation about the ‘obscured’ announcement about increases given to most Liberal MLAs by Twisty Christy.
A fast comment..please note that one MlA who did not receive any increase..Ralph Sultan. Why no increase? Because when Christy needed to get a seat in the Legislature, she asked Ralph to give up his seat as it was a secure Liberal riding and Ralph was able and respected as a Liberal. He refused! So Twisty Christy was just being petty..
No doubt there will be many more about Wilkinson
