Filed under: Democratizing the Liberal Party
So Ignatieff is quoted today as saying that’ll he’ll stay on as leader because, “This is a democratic party”. What a slap in the face! This guy was shoved down our throats, the elites CANCELLED our leadership race, and he has the nerve to say one of the reasons he can stay is because this is a democratic party?! If he stays there will be total acrimony within the party and the Liberals will be unable to rebuild. If people thought that the Turner leadership review was a mess just wait, you ain’t seen nothing yet. I was there for fighting it out in the days of Friends of John Turner and the pro-leadership review group. Millions were drained to support both sides. Serious people within the party dedicated well over a year of their time to support either side. Ignatieff has little to no support at the grassroots and has more but still limited support at the riding executive level. If he decides to stay on there will be a fight like the Liberal Party has never seen. Liberals will be split like never before and you can be assured that after it is all done there will be blood on the walls … and it will NEVER really be done, it’ll go on forever. And this is what he says he wants for the Liberal Party?
