Let me see if I've got this right.

John van Dongen is the Solicitor-General of the Province of British Columbia.

He is responsible for the police, the courts and ICBC, among other small matters.

In short, he is Top Cop.

And he cannot drive a car these days because

a)he has speeding tickets;

and b)he has unpaid speeding tickets.

And the Premier, Gordon Campbell in defending this idiocy, casually downgrades the speeding tickets to parking tickets, a cute little bit of verbal jujitsu if there ever was one.

Let's begin by pointing out to the fellow who wants to be your premier for the 3d unbearable time that parking tickets arrive on your windshield when you leave your car somewhere it doesn't belong at that time. A relatively innocuous offense against obscure and usually nonsensical taxing laws that can barely be justified at the best of times.

Whereas, your Honour, speeding tickets come about when you are madly racing through public corridors at dangerous high velocities way in excess of what may be good for the common weal.

One would think that if anyone should know the wrongness of such behaviour, it would be Mr. Top Cop.

Oh, but wait.

We forgot. He is special. He is John van Donkey, Special person.

And his deep need to catch the ferry boat and get back to his little life in Abbotsford far precludes all other community needs, like say, life and limb.

The Premier Personage says this will all blow over and that van Donkey should be congratulated for braying loudly and publicly what a bad boy he is.

I, like many of you, am of a different mind.

I think that this selfish fool should be denied the opportunity to disgrace another government portfolio after May 12th.

I don't hold out much hope for this to transpire. No doubt the good and faithful of Abbotsford are forgiving and forgetful souls and The Donkey will ride again.

If only politics were taught in school. What would the curriculum look like?
Drinking and driving
How to hire your relatives
How to sell a railway
How to establish an insurance monopoly
How to try and sell your senate seat(got to look after our Yankee children)
How to not have sex but have fun
How to sell helicopters to yourself
How to deploy soldiers to lost cause wars
How to sell vast tracts of land to your buddies for cheap
How to vote yourself a huge pay raise
How to vote yourself a huge pay raise while calling for restraint
How to spend your pension loot
How to get appointed to the senate
How to ignore or forget campaign promises
How often you actually have to do any real work

Their would be way to much to cover it might take all of 12 years to learn how to be a liar, corrupt to the core and It might spill over into university or trade schooling

It says a lot about the citizens of B.C. that they will ignore the obvious and re-elect this bunch probably with an increase in seats and not care about corruption, deals for insiders, child poverty, sell-off of public assets etc. Of course, how can they lose with the MSM pretty much in their pocket?
