Many colours indeed, the Red Ruling Liberals, the inept weak Blue opposition, the Fresh strong and Honest Greens. Then there is the colour Black as in Bush. I’m not referring to the famous Irish Whiskey “Black Bush”. It is with a great deal of regret that I attribute this blog to an old friend. The colour black must unfortunately be awarded to my former MLA when I lived in Ebenezer, Bush Dumville. I’m more than disappointed by his most recent action of supporting the Mac Lauchlan government against the will of his constituents. I find it very difficult to understand his decision to ignore democracy. Bush was all but ignored by the Ghiz administration, never came close to getting a cabinet post. Yet he came out in support of Ghiz and his Plan B. He did this even though he confided to me the Cornwall bypass should have taken priority. Lately he has made some wild statements that the Coalition of electoral reform are using a double standard. When in fact they are doing nothing different than the Liberals and Tory’s have been doing for years. In the last election, the Liberals tried to get rid of him by running another candidate in his district. A very unusual thing to do in the riding of a sitting MLA. However, Bush prevailed once more, this must be at least his third term as an MLA and yet still no cabinet post? How strange that a member with so much experience is passed over again and again. Even stranger, he remains loyal to a party that would prefer to see the back of him? I’m at a loss, why Bush? can you explain why you of all people would vote against the wishes of the people that have returned you to your job more than once??? Loyalty is a two way street or it should be, it appears not to be so in your case. One can only speculate on your reasons, but it surely looks like you are just the premier’s yes man, not a title to be envied. I find myself as disappointed as you must feel the shame of your actions. Honour the Vote.
