'I'm going to vote Green because I think the NDP is more interested in eliminating the Liberal party than in restoring to power a government that actually cares about issues I care about,'" she told CTV's Question Period on Sunday.
"My advice to (NDP Leader Jack) Layton which is open and really in the spirit of co-operation -- rethink the policy of constantly denigrating the Greens and acting hostile towards us."
I know that line of argument is the last thing NDP supporters want to hear, but I also don't doubt for a second that some people have moved to the Green column, for preciously the reason mentioned by May. I've heard first hand that sentiment, not to mention my own disappointment, after voting NDP, then watching Layton and company fail to recognize the real enemy on the political spectrum.
The Liberals might be in the political wilderness, but I don't think there much question that the NDP has lost its way as well. A combination of delusion and ambition, could just be the catalyst to marginalization. Instead of scoffing at May, which will be the first response, better to heed the advice, because there is truth in them there words.
Does anyone ever wonder why the NDP has failed to capitalize on the glaring ineptitude that is the Liberal Party these days?
