A last, short, glimpse at Helena Guergis. . . . .
The most disturbing part of the Helena Guergis story is not that she was kicked out of her caucus, but that after all that she has been through she actually wants back in! It appears that she was removed from her party by the PM mostly in the hope that her removal would change the political channel. She says she was treated badly and never given a meeting with the PM, never given a reason for her dismissal, and never even given any information concerning the charges leveled against her. She was a proverbial sacrificial lamb for a party that doesn't care about process or justice, or right and wrong. When it comes to their political power Harper's Tories will do just about anything. But apparently Ms Guergis doesn't really care about these things either - as long as she is not the victim of the Conservative's bullying and railroading, she is absolutely fine with it, because despite all her complaints about being abused she was ready and willing to step right back into the party and once again be part of the nasty treatment of others. So after being abused herself - Ms Guergis is chomping at the bit to get right back in there and abuse other people. This demonstrates that not only does Ms Guergis not learn from her mistakes but she has an almost pathological need to be part of a clique of vulgar bullies. It is all part of a dangerous pathology that has gripped the Conservative Party of Canada which threatens all of us.
