Nobrainer.... I don't think you're understanding what I'm saying. Elizabeth May has the appearance of a child in a temper tantrum. She's mad cuz she doesn't have seats and will do what it takes to get them. At this point, it's political pandering - and she's good at it. While FPTP system might be beneficial for our country (and I voted yes for it), the only reason she's so loudspoken about it is because it'd give her people in parliament. You can bet that if it was something that would damage her ability to get or retain seats in parliament she'd never raise the issue.

and Koby, because someone disagrees with you it's unmitigated garbage? Your idiocy is surprising. When you wake up in the morning is your first word "baaa" cuz you're definitely a sheep. Step back a bit and forumalate an opinion based on something other than blind support for a leader that skuttles the green party ambitions. Elizabeth May is protecting her own interest at the same time as her party's interest. It's easy to sit in the cheap seats and say "I'd do things differently if I were in power" because you don't have to prove it and judging from the polls being released, won't have to prove it for a while. Layton's exactly the same albeit a bit more sinister in my opinion.

The problem we have is that while in opposition (or in the Green's case not present) our political parties spew stuff that sounds great. Then when they get into power, they don't stand by what they say or believe and blame it on past administrations.

I have never said I don't like some of the green party platform or that they don't have some great ideas... What I've said is that Elizabeth May is NOT the leader the green party needs if they plan on getting a marked improvement in support.
