Give it up guys. We done good, but all good things must come to an end. People want to wait for the referendum.

Without the anti HST group there would not be a referendum, and Gordo would probably have tried to tough it out and stay on as Liberal boss, or assorted Liberal candidates would not be offering the referendum earlier than first announced, and Gordo decided to lower the percentage to pass it to a simple majority. WE must thank the folks who did all the hard work of setting up places to vote for the referendum. That includes Bill Vanderzam, Chris delany and Bill Tieleman and so many other spear carriers all across this province

Dead horse? I still pay hst on everything I buy, so I don't think the horse is dead. I think it's foolish to believe that the HST is definitely done for. That's what the bc libs and the media want you to think. Thats what christy wants you to think. And the pab.

I hope they raise HST by 2%. We need more taxes to help pay for the deadbeats in society. Especially those following Vanderscam and Delaney. I guess yo're in that category too Tieleman. How's business

Same thing can also be said for the NDP.

I don't vote. Voting for crooks is worst than voting.

Have to agree with raising HST and all personal taxes. Hope more people move away from BC.

Yeah great idea, lets tax the poor more. Let's also change the minimum wage rules, we'll abolish the training wage and simply set min wage at $6. Then we will remove all corporate taxes, while raising personal income tax and user fee's. Let's really get those freeloaders.!

Sounds like a wonderful place to live eh.

Wish I could be there to laugh in your face (0 for 3 on the Recalls?) but I have a real protest to attend at The (Olympic) Village. Here's a clue how you can tell who they are more afraid of, a bunch of rich whiny NDP'ers or the homeless and their supporters. How many police will be patrolling your protest making sure it doesn't get out of control? Report on that next week Tieleman, I'll let you know how many we get as soon as I get back to the internet. Remember if you're not a threat, there's no reason for them to listen.

what happen to RECALL Survior tieleman? Those attending rallies all should be voted off the island.

@ DPL - really?

Cheryl - We should never give up until the tax is defeated. We must stay in the face and pressure government - if not we the people fall asleep again and government gets away with murder again. Read and reflect back and then ask the question if we should go to sleep again

The trolls are at it again. There must be something they are really scared about. Otherwise, why would they take time to write. For example, why do trolls (e.g., anon at 3:43 etc) repeatedly write that they are bored reading about the lying Liberals and why the BC Rail sale was corrupt and who should be charged, why the HST should be repealed and who backs Christy?

It just seems incredible that a rationale person would take time to write to complain that its "old news." A rational person would simply google something else to read. Why keep returning to a site you find boring? Just doesn't make sense.

Keep up the good work Bill. I find the site informative and lively. Maybe I am biased, but I just can't stomach the MSM drivel so I don't buy it and seldom read it.

I was surprised last week to read the transcript of one of the RCMP surveillance tapes. I think it was Basi offering to take a bribe from a high placed liberal as a donation to the lying liberals for influencing a public official. Surely this is a criminal offense.

But this was only one of the people involved in making and receiving bribes. Yet only Basi and Virk were charged. Why? It is ridiculous that this is not a MSM news item. But we know why it isn't - its all about the undue influence corporations have over the "news" companies that print papers and have licenses to broadcast. The lying Liberals were bought and sold and now they are selling us out again with an oil pipeline deal and a new Porcupine Lake proposal.

Fortunately, the news business has changed. Wikileaks and social media have changed everything. At some point someone is going to dump those electronic files BY MISTAKE and then we will have all the proof to make Good, Palmer and the rest of the lap dogs whine.

In fact, I bet they have already set up a few more sacrificial lambs. But it will be harder for Campbell and Christy to avoid the truth. Who leaked Cabinet discussions if, according to Hansen, Bas and Virk were not there? How did Christy's brother come by confidential BC Rail documents? Why was the investigation so restricted?
