Right-wing scheming

In MLA Kevin Falcon’s step-down speech, he made it clear that he would not defend the next Liberal budget. He also made clear that he would not run as a Liberal in the next election. He would back-bench, out of cabinet to the election. But he said he was not out of politics. He was leaving a clear path to attack the next Liberal budget and use that excuse to jump to another right-wing party.

While many think that (Premier Christy) Clark’s cabinet is slinking off a doomed ship, I think that the Socred’s covered in Liberal wool are planing another party invasion. Holding power with all costs to British Columbians is likely the plan. The injected party and the surviving Liberals can form another Wacky coalition.

The Falcon alarm may be that the budget with the latest sales-tax fix will bankrupt B.C. The new party and or coalition may reform the Liberal HST to PST repairs by entrenching a higher tax rate to save us all from ruin. And lower corporate taxes a bit more. B.C. voters have fallen for such right-wing schemes repeatedly.
