Questioning David Herle
David Herle was part of that Martin inner circle that lead us to the slippery slope decline toward minorities and opposition. For him to be pronouncing on the party problem further undermines it credibility of that group when you can't see you are the causes of part of the problem.
I am reminded of the debate here in London On, and a bunch of us were discussing the London-Fanshawe debates and someone was making fun of the Christian Heritage member, who somehow linked all his views to abortion. As comedy rich as that was, Glen Pearson quickly shut down any of that informing the young liberals that even though his views were different than our they were nerveless important, if not to us, than to him, and should be respected.
If more members of the Liberal Party had that attitude I think we would have had a majority, with or without the Dion mess.
