The NDP commits seppuku by jettisoning Tom Mulcair

If Velma from the cartoon Scooby Doo was a dim-witted socialist absent any mystery-solving abilities, she could very well be New Democratic Party MP Niki Ashton.

Yet it’s people like Ashton, the spectacularly stupid al Jazeera correspondent Avi Lewis, and Jack Layton’s hopelessly inarticulate widow, Olivia Chow, that the NDP is now grappling on choosing between for its new head after jettisoning Tom Mulcair at their national convention.

    Boy did they throw him under the electric bus.

    • Maggat

      Under the bus, my friend, is where the NDP belongs.

    Hopelessly inarticulate widow.
    That’s gold Jerry!

      Maybe a court will order Mulcair to become Justin’s butler for a couple of years?

        Fate worse than death.

  • Ron MacDonald

    The NDP’s popularity will be down to single digits by the next election.

    • I hope they elect Olivia Chowcescu leader.

      That will be so much fun.

      • Ron MacDonald

        It will be the last kick at the can for the sixties shit-disturbers.

      • Miss Trixie

        I see what you did there.

    They might as well just be honest and merge with the Communist Party, especially since the Liberals have become the old NDP.

  • SDMatt

    I love the NDP: they can’t possibly advance a position without labeling it a “manifesto.” And they’ve no shame in naming it dangerously close to Mao’s Great Leap Forward, which of course led to deaths in the tens of millions.

    They should rename themselves the Lewis Family Party. Let that group of communist bastards own this steaming pant load in perpetuity.

      I argue with my family all the time.
      My main point is that NDP policies hurt the poor more than they help them.

    The oligarchs etc had no more use for Tommy plus his stupid NDP commies once Shiny Pony was “in the winner’s circle”. And now we see the opposite was true also.

  • andycanuck

    Seppuku? The NDP aren’t smart enough to do number puzzles. They can barely manage the Word Jumble.

    • Exile1981

      Seppuku is ritual suicide, your thinking of Sudoko.

      • dance…dancetotheradio

        Maybe it’s a joke.

        • Exile1981

          maybe I need more sleep

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      That’s funny.

    did they all walk to and from convention?

  • ntt1

    the choices really come down to who will circle the drain in the fastest, most efficient manner. avi lewis is the one to watch, an arrogant red diaper baby with a level of sheer stupidity unmatched in the political world. lewis will put the dippers back in the single digits appealing only to academics and enemies of the west in general.

      consider his wife Klein
      hates oil.. loves big jets
      Paris COP21 . Copenhagen COP19 , Rio , Cancun , Sydney

    Hell hath no fury like a a political ideology scorned, rendered 3rd in party status of parliament.
    There’s something terribly tragic about unrequited love, emotions ranges from bitterness and cynicism to the most heart-rending melancholy and despair.
    NDPee federal rule was so close & than suddenly so far away again, forsaken.
    “A mighty pain to love it is,
    And ’tis a pain that pain to miss;
    But of all pains, the greatest pain
    It is to love, but love in vain.”
    This convention was a bloodletting offering some relief, yet wait is that a Savior in the shadows, perchance saint-Jacks’ spouse can lead the way and return the lost MAGIC……….
