Greens Slide in Polls

Well at least thats what the headline is going to read after the new opposition to the Green Party gets in a few posts on his blog. The new Green Party critic will have a tougher time convincing Elizabeth May and his new party of his 'radical' ideas of not wanting to shut down the economy in order to hold Canada's end of the Kyoto deal. From the Green Party Website:

Taxes are one tool governments have to shape society. For instance, both the Conservatives and Liberals have used our tax system to benefit corporations. Just in the last 5 years, federal corporate taxes have been reduced by almost 8 per cent as corporate profits hit record highs.
I thought you were for the Corporate tax cuts in order to boost economic growth. Garth, please do not give up your pricinciples now that you are no longer a Conservative and please continue to speak out, publicly and often, whenever you disagree with Green Party policy and the leader of the Party.

I can't wait for the press conference where you will resign and run again in your riding to get your constituents approval to join this new party of whom they did not vote for. The Greens only got 5.8%, about twice what they got the election previous of the popular vote in Halton last election so it seems that your constituents might not want a Green MP.

Rules of Caucus

Since Garth can't figure what went wrong at caucus, I've done a bit of deep research, using a team of MIT rocket surgeons, to come up with the complete list of Caucus rules.

Here they are:

The first rule of caucus is that you do not talk about caucus.

The second rule of caucus is that you do not talk about caucus.

3rd RULE: If someone says "stop" or goes limp, taps out - you do not talk about it if it happened in caucus.

4th RULE: If two guys fight - you do not talk about it if it happened in caucus.

5th RULE: One fight at a time in caucus - and no talking about it.

6th RULE: No shirts, no shoes? - you do not talk about it if it happened in caucus.

7th RULE: Caucus will go on as long as they have to.

8th RULE: If this is your first night at caucus, you HAVE to fight. And no-one will talk about it!

Sha Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye ---- Garth

Couldn't say I did not see this coming - but with comments like this "the Harper Administration unveils its long-awaited green plan" .... Come-on ... Harper Administration ... and this was yesterday!

Also from yesterday ---leak???--- "Rona Ambrose’s office told mine earlier today there will be a lock-up in advance of the release."

Anyway, it looks like the Conservative are seeing a spring election in the future and figure now is the time to dump him.

I'm sure they do not want to go into an election campaign with a "media-friendly maverick" who will likely criticize and contradict the national campaign. Better to pull the plug now.
