While the tireless social activist aspiring to political power finds that he cannot depend on the relatively small consituency of sympathetic moonbats for electoral success, the simple name recognition acquired from repeatedly sticking his face in public might generate a larger consituency of careless and idiotic voters. It finally worked for Irene Mathyssen in the last federal election, and now, according to the London Free Press, one of the city's most tireless and chronically unsuccessful aspirants to political power is running for board of control. Gina Barber, pictured at right participating in an anti-war rally in Victoria Park last year (see below), is a member of the Ontario NDP executive, a two-time failed NDP candidate in the last two federal elections, an environmentalist and pesticide ban proponent, and anti-development activist — in short, an unrequited communist.
Women's issues must have become a municipal responsibility around the time Bigelow was mayor, women being a separate class of citizens for use in political manipulation. The implication of Bigelow's assertion on behalf of women is that men tend more to want the community level to leave them the hell alone, so their representation on council is superfluous.
"She'll be supportive of family and women's issues…"
The rapacious ego of the social activist despises the community that does not think like him and unerringly tempts him to take community involvement to mean involving the community in his own nihilistic schemes whether they like it or not. A council made up of Gina Barbers could be expected to expand its authority in issues not generally understood to be or barely tolerated as municipal jurisdictions. The London Fog wishes Gina Barber the least of luck in the upcoming election and a speedy return to the unpaid moonbat parade.
