Foes of the B.C. Greens and NDP react to their axis of...
This evening, I decided to see what B.C. Liberals and various right wingers were saying over Twitter about the agreement reached between the NDP and the B.C. Greens.
It has the potential to make NDP Leader John Horgan the 36th premier in B.C. history. And it could spell the end not only of Christy Clark's premiership, but also her leadership of the B.C. Liberal party.
But when I started scouring through the social media feeds of recently elected B.C. Liberal candidates, I found very little. An eerie silence seems to have descended over the caucus.
Some of Clark's most vociferous supporters within the party, including executive director Laura Miller and director of engagement and liaison Pamela Martin, weren't allowing their fingers to do any talking, either.
The same can be said for Clark herself and Deputy Premier Rich Coleman.
The premier's ex-husband, Mark Marissen, is a regular on Twitter. But even he has also been quieter than usual, merely retweeting this from columnist Andrew Coyne.
I did find a few comments from those who don't have a lot of time for the NDP or the Greens, including a soon-to-retire cabinet minister.
I guess we'll just have to wait until tomorrow when the B.C. Liberal caucus gets its story straight and the party releases something from the leader.
In the meantime, keep an eye on Jordan Bateman of the Independent Contractors & Businesses Association of B.C.. He's articulate and witty, and he's loved by the car dealers for his constant denigration of public transit.
He just might have the right stuff to replace Clark as B.C. Liberal leader should Deputy Premier Coleman offer his blessing.
