My Way or The Highway, Lizzie May. This Sounds Like a Purge.
Green Party leader, Elizabeth May, sacked three of her top aides yesterday. Their sin? They stood with the solid majority of Green Party members on the Boycott/Divest/Sanction movement to protest Israel's half-century of occupation and theft of Palestinian land.
Let's call it what it is - a purge. It erases any notion that the Green Party is anything more than Lizzie's personal fiefdom.
Andrew Weaver, head of the BC Green Party and Ms. May's fellow traveller, is floating the idea of the party changing its name to distance itself from the "extremist fringe elements" he accuses of having hijacked the GPC.
