Christy Clark all about the photo-ops

Christy Clark has been justifiably ridiculed as Premier Photo-Op.

To the Editor,

Since becoming the Premier, on the strength of a mere 29,000 BC Liberal Party card-carrying members voting on the third electronic ballot, Christy Clark has been justifiably ridiculed as Premier Photo-Op.

Her leadership style has always been linked to vainly smiling at the ever-present cameras at every opportunity.

Her self-professed leadership skills were never apparent, stumbling from one crisis to the next in a shambolic display of being pathetically shallow and ill-prepared; even former supporters couldn’t wait for the election to put her out of her misery, as she floundered and flopped around like a fish out of water.

Yet, with her poll numbers headed south faster than fragile monarch butterflies at the end of summer; her handlers repeatedly told the media that they were not unduly worried.

Unbelievably, in the first week since the writ was dropped, those handlers have turned Premier Photo-op into an even more risible and ludicrous figure.

Will she be able to claim that her party garnered more votes than her opponents, or will she just fade away to allow us plebeians to regain a little sanity ??

Bernie Smith,
