LittleWhat's with the sudden disappearance this past week of "five" of Premier Christy Clark's most Trusted Ministers? In one great swoop, Rich Coleman abandons his Post and refuses to give out any interviews. Coleman left without the BC Liberals typical Friday-night-take-out-the-garbage announcement that he wouldn't be available for the "Long" weekend. No explanation as to his hiatus .... hiatuses (plural) to "cloister themselves" for three days, away from the baying Press hounds, and the Public questions.

Eating a Christmas pie;
He put in his thumb,
And pulled out a plum,
And said 'What a good boy am I
MLA Rich Coleman took HIS three day weekend celebration of "February 11th", two weeks earlier than anyone else.
Christy Clark's FIRST Family Day is NOT recognized by her buddy Stephen Harper. His Federal employees have to Work, while others relax. .......BC Ministers get to relax on Maui Beach. Cheers!
Typically this type of Missing In Action (MIA) on the part of an individual is associated with too much Stress in one's life...... often caused by the distressed individual himself. Can we even begin to imagine the pain that he must be suffering at the Executive Council Level (BC Liberal Cabinet)?
One saving grace for Coleman, he has at his fingertips the full weight of the BC Liberal Government Caucus Research department who are particularly fond of creating mischievous partisan websites on BC Taxpayers dimes.... without any Supervision from a Minister.... fancy that.....
Why is it though, that Christy Clark having looked around the MLAs that Gordon Muir Campbell left behind to deal with the fall-out about the HST implementation-without-consultation, only ONE man stepped forward to endorse Christy's Leadership, Race? Good Old Harry (Bloy)!
Why is it that She couldn't find four other strong voices from the Elected MLAs capable of expressing their own opinions, their own points of view,.......... is that why she had to give Coleman FIVE titles, FIVE seats, at the Executive Council.
Energy Minister Rich Coleman
Gaming Minister Rich Coleman
Housing Minister Rich Coleman
Liquor Minister Rich Coleman
Deputy Premier Rich Coleman
Amazing isn't it, that Former Finance Minister Colin Hansen's Not-on-my-Radar is still functioning, because that's the only plausible explanation as to how One Man, One Person, Five Ministers rolled into One, could suddenly drop out of sight....... Must have been the infamous HST Radar, again......... a Titanic moment where all hell breaks loose. It's either sink or swim!
Researcher: "Where's Rich?"
Boss of Researcher: He's in a Corner
Researcher: "What's he doing, there?"
Boss of Researcher: Sitting on a chair
Researcher: "Which way is he facing?"
Boss of Researcher: You need to ASK?
Researcher: "Does he have today's Flood Gate Key!"
Boss of Researcher: Didn't you check his Christmas Pies?
Was it that ONE instance where "Little Rich Coleman" opened his mouth when he should have bit his tongue on espousing the virtues of Casino et al. (not Roy-al)? Instead, he raised his "Plum Thumb" and shouted out loud "'What a good boy am I".
Then with a Wink to Christy, a Smile to Mikey, he turned to the world. He had been stopped in his tracks, His goals spoiled too, all he had left was speak to the Press. Damn abomination and inconvenience of meddling municipalities, especially the Council of Surrey.
The little people.
