BC’s NDP leader is a Trump-like sexist jerk

This is Kim Campbell Week One level self-immolation, folks. Holy shit.

    He could say the same to your Prime Minister. Both are photo op junkies. If he said that to JT, what would you call him then?

      Good point, but I thought photo op junkie was part of a politician’s job description. And if he said that to JT, speaking for myself I’d consider him a Trump-like childish jerk.

        …and when called him ‘John’ and reached over and touched him what was your response to that when you watched the debate?

    Debates will be interesting. There is a strong desire for change in BC, but Horgan is known for his strong temper so no doubt Clark will try to bait him. Will be interesting if he takes the bait as that should sink him, but unlike Trump I suspect he will prepare for the debates and unlike with Trump he cannot say and do anything without losing support. To be fair I suspect it’s going to come down to the ground game. In the Lower Mainland where most of the swing ridings are, I counted 16 swing ridings that could determine the election, 9 are held by the BC Liberals (North Vancouver-Lonsdale, Vancouver-Fraserview, Burnaby North, Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows, Maple Ridge-Mission, Delta North, Surrey-Fleetwood, Surrey-Guildford, Surrey-Panorama) and 7 by the NDP (Vancouver-Point Grey, Vancouver-Fairview, Burnaby-Deer Lake, Burnaby-Lougheed, Coquitlam-Maillardville, Port Moody-Coquitlam, and Coquitlam-Burke Mountain) so they need to hold all the ones they hold now plus pick up pretty much all of the BC Liberal held ones. They could also attempt to pick up a few in the interior, but based on the trends there and polling that might be tough while there are 1 or 2 NDP held ridings in the Interior that the BC Liberals could pick up. Vancouver Island is the other wildcard as the Greens could take some NDP ridings and in a few the BC Liberals might even slip up the middle, although they could also lose Courtenay-Comox (Parksville-Qualicum they should hold barring a complete meltdown). So in sum ground game will be key. Off course if Horgan surprises people and does better than expected, you could see him win in ridings unexpected although cannot see him winning in the 20 or so super safe BC Liberal ridings and unlike last time I don’t think the NDP will waste any resources on those. Likewise due to the baggage of the BC Liberals, I cannot see them winning anything they lost by more than five points last time around. Will be interesting, but it does seem that except for change elections like 1991 or 2001 the results seem to be very similar each time around no matter what happens with a few minor shifts, certainly that was the case in the past three elections.
