More NDP Blather, Now They Don’t Like Soccer

I can’t stand the provincial NDP. They have got to be the most mindless political group I can think of. I’m not sure they have an original thought amongst the whole party. Basically they work like this: if the Liberals say left, the NDP say right. If the Liberals say up, the NDP says down. The latest thing that the NDP are bashing is the planned renovation of BC Place. Vancouver was recently awarded a new MLS expansion team and part of plan is to renovate BC Place and replace its old, repaired roof with a new retractable roof. The NDP seem to think this is a bad idea because they say it will take money away from social housing. I swear, if all you did was listen to COPE and the NDP, you would think that the whole raison d’être in life was to build social housing. I like the idea of social housing as much as the next NDPer, but give it a break – it doesn’t have to be the answer to every planning and development question asked.

I came across a few commentaries about the lates NDP/soccer crafuffle at CityCaucus.com and VanCity Buzz. Here is quick blurb on the issue from the BC Liberals.

This quote from the VanCity Buzz pretty much sums up my thoughts on the NDP, although I wouldn’t be quite so gracious towards the Liberals.

I am not a Liberal supporter, nor am I an NDP supporter. I vote for whoever I think is best to lead this province to the top and right now for me the NDP does not instill any confidence whatsoever. The only thing that comes out of the NDP politicians mouths is hate. All they do is complain about what the Liberals are doing (which is a good job by the way) and have no plan for themselves. For that very reason they have to be the stupidest bunch of politicians out there. Carole James is not a leader. She needs to go and the rest of her party is no better. Give me something other than union bullshit. Tell me you understand simple economics and finance because from what I heard coming from you guys thus far is highschool.
