And your starter for 10, dear readers, who said this?
Today we are beginning a purge of our team. And I promise you that this will be the biggest purge in Ukrainian politics in all the years of independence. We will get rid of all the excess weight, the dirt, all the useless figures that became stuck to our team by chance and commercial reasons. We will get rid of those people who make our team weaker than the times demand…
The answer is the good leader of “an” opposition coalition…..the ex Prime Minister, Yulia T.
Spring cleaning is one of those things unfortunately…….however, when something is so dirty and rotten, why would you wait until you are out of power and loosing MPs almost daily to the opposition before doing so?
The answer of course is she needed every single last corrupt, scheming, cheating lying mealymouthed, underhanded, rotten to the core, one of them to keep her majority of 1.
Now, with 7 defectors from BYuT to the current power base and an anticipated 10 or so more before the summer break, is this Spring Clean simply spin for the falling numbers and falling appeal of being associated with the BYuT.
How many will jump to Arseny Yatseniuk when we get closer to the elections in 2012…..or Tigipko…..even after her Spring Clean?
With so many defectors from BYuT, gaining a majority of even 1 is now simply not possible…….unless she will welcome back to the fold every single last corrupt, scheming, cheating lying mealymouthed, underhanded, rotten to the core, one of them in times to come…….as the youthful up and coming people of political note are more likely to go the way of Yatseniuk in any numbers.
Still, if she is looking for foreign advisors in any guise either nationally or locally, I am available for hire at far more reasonable rates than those she has previously engaged…….and have no nasty skeletons in my political cupboard.
Ms T, now has the opportunity to remove all historical misdeeds which surpass the level of acceptability within her party and campaign in the future on the platform of “cleaner politics”. Let us see if she will accomplish this with a series of staggered and headline grabbing high profile explusions from her party.
