22 seconds after One O'clock yesterday, someone from OUTSIDE of government asked the Internet to come up with anything related to Graham Whitmarsh.
And of course there was......
22 seconds after Two O'clock the second hit arrived, and kept on arriving.
Google Search Criteria Graham Whitmarsh News
The BC Liberals gained a lot of ground by reminding the public of Adrian Dix back dating a memo, and the BC NDP neglected to remind the public of an equally damaging Deputy Minister Graham Whitmarsh's HST and the secret key to the Indemnity locked closet which the BC Liberals escaped from, unscathed then and two years later.
If the BC Liberals, Christy Clark, had fired Whitmarsh when she first became Premier in April of 2011, Whitmarsh would have been her, their, Albatross.... but they didn't, they paid Whitmarsh for another years, TWO years of salary, when he should have been thrown out for causing so much Disdain to the "ruling" BC Liberals.
Bad optics, real bad optics.... a sure sign that the majority of the public was right, the BC Liberals were Wrong and the Public only knows NOW that if Whitmarsh was turfed before May 14, 2013 it would be the key to the BC Liberals downfall.
Nice Going Christy!
And for those Conspiracy Blogger Theorists: (Pacific Gazetteer et al)
Who will do an FOI to determine When Whitmarsh got his Marching orders?
Was he given Three months, Two months, One month notice, or Zero. He's an OIC appointee.
When was his replacement (Stephen Brown) informed? Another reason to do a FOI?
