British Columbia's unelected, unelectable and outgoing premier, Crispy Christy Clark, was nudged ever closer to the exit today - by her own party members.
More than a hundred BC Libs met in Surrey this morning to demand Clark resign to let somebody else, presumably almost anybody, lead the government party into the May election. It's hard to imagine how a change at the top could do the party much good at this point.
Recent polls find 59% of respondents favouring a change of government versus just 24% still supporting the BC Libs. Worse still, over 70% of respondents believe the latest "balanced budget" was a scam designed to cloak an actual deficit.
Some think that a real contender might be willing to step in at this point to revive the BC Libs' fortunes before the poll but it's hard to imagine anyone with ambitions for the future being willing to "step in" to the mess Christy Clark and her advisers have left on the floor.
Clark has summoned a meeting of her cabinet this afternoon. No word yet in which bunker they'll convene.
