NDP Spy vs Spy

Rumours have been milling about that a leadership coup is brewing within the ranks the BC NDP. But now, the stakes have been raised as Mike "Macho Man" Farnworth is gaining momentum against current leader Carole "I'm Prettier Than Carol Taylor, Right?" James. In fact, it is getting down right dirty.
"The tension and level of violence is just unbelievable," our NDP caucus source told us. "I mean, not as unbelievable as say an NDP Fudge-It Budget or BCTF President Jinny Sims demand for a 24% raise, but still pretty bad."
The real problems began in November when Mikey F. worked with BC Liberal House Leader Mike "Da Donger" de Jong on the MLA raises and constituency office budget increases. When the BCTF, BC Fed and BCGEU unions called Carole onto the carpet for the raises since they could not get a percentage of the increase, James changed her position.
"Mike was enraged!", a former pool boy of the Opposition House Leader confirmed. "He almost used fact and common sense as opposed to just yelling when he was ranting against James. Her flipping back and forth like a farmed salmon at a fundraising event was unbelievable. I mean, not as unbelievable as the poor questions she and fellow Dippers ask in question period which are really just copies of Vaughn Palmer's thoughts, but still pretty bad."
And things continued to get worse in this "Spy vs Spy" dramedy.
"Mike and Carole just try to tear each other apart", our NDP caucus source continued. "Mike would ask Carole difficult questions such as "which province borders BC to the east" while Carole delights in bringing up issues where cuts to the Health Budget were made when Mikey was Health Minister in the '90's then ending with, "which moron did that?"."
But where will it end? What will happen if MF and CJ destroy each other?
"My God, we hope that will not happen," caucus boy exclaimed. "That could cause something unbelievable to happen such as Gregor "Not Living Up To Expectations" Robertson taking a run at the leadership or the NDP dropping down to only two members. That would never happen...again...could it?"

LOL. Carole James' time as leader and MLA will be done in 2009. Mikey as leader will be only slightly better in the opposition.

Mikey as leader not likely. Shane Simpson is my choice for leader.

James has a few more nipping at the heals now. What about the corriganator in the republic of Burnaby or David "the BCTF will take over" Chudnovsky.

Well so much for the NDP getting closer to business. This guys are servants to labour and are proud of it. Just what BC needs again.
