Like just who the hell are you kidding Mr. Falcon, Premier Clarke?
Putting aside that your Party caved into the bullying tactics of Stephen Harper, and sold us out to bring in the Harper Stealing Tax, I can’t see myself, or others, willing to vote for you, based on sheer ineptitude.
You can dismantle the PST within weeks, even hold negotiations and come to an agreement on implementing the Harper Stealing Tax, within weeks, but you can’t put it back without it taking a year and a half?
Really, are you people for real, or do you just assume that the 55% of 1.6 million British Columbians are plain stupid?
According to the newspaper report on this travesty of trying to ignore the wishes of the People, your finance Minister also says it is going to cost the province $3 Billion to reinstate the PST.
Okay, let’s ASSUME that includes the repayment of the bribe from Herr Harper to Tipsy Gordon, that still leaves $1.4 Billion Plus to account for.
Explain please Premier Clarke, Finance Minister Falcon, how in blazes you came up with that figure? What, you are buying new buildings and equipment? Even then, how the hell does it add up to that lovely sum?
Oh, and while at it, if the PST cost us $1.4 Billion to manage, why wasn’t that mentioned way back when you brought in the Harper Stealing Tax? Did it slip your minds?
By the way, Mr. Adrian Dix, where the hell are you? I mean come on, the people made a statement, where in hell is you and your party on this? Awfully silent about this victory by the People, you know, the one’s you hope will vote for you in the next Provincial Election?
A victory that was won without any help by you, your predecessor, or your party.
But back to this March 2013 bullshit. Just explain how something you managed to come up with, and implement in just a short few weeks, can take so long to reverse?
First you stalled the referendum, and now you are stalling in implementing the will of the people. Do you really think that is going to get you a return ticket to power?
Perhaps you aren’t old enough to recall, but when Brown Paper Bag Brian Mulroney implemented the GST, it didn’t take him 18 months to put in place. It happened pretty damn fast, once he forced it down the nation’s throat. So even if that For Hire Prime Minister could do it in less time, and across an entire nation, just how can you folks justify taking so long to bring back the PST?
Are you really that incompetent Premier Clarke?
