So we're clear here

A former Executive Director of the PC Party, twooting as Whiff83 on the Twitter, twought one maxmulligan2010 all he needs to know about what political parties are, and what democratic institutions are, and how the two — at least as far as the PC Party is concerned — have nothing much to do with one another, really:


For the record, the Constitution of the non-democratic institution called the PC Party provides, hidden waaaaaaaaay down near the bottom, in Article 3:
The purpose, aims and objectives of the Party shall be:

a. to form the Government of the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and to provide good government to the people of the Province;

b. to foster interest in Government and in the political process in Canada and in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador;

...

e. to elect a Leader of the Party;

f. to provide for a nominating process for the selection of candidates for election as Progressive Conservative members of the House of Assembly;

...

i. to provide for democratic procedures and practices to effect the purpose, aims and objectives of the Party.
Of course, after what the PC Supreme Court of Star Chamber has done with the interpretation and application of the words "member" and "membership", it's easy to reconcile the Constitution of The Party with the former Executive Director's unusual take on what The Party isn't.

Are you sure you're not just picking up Twitter feeds from Egypt?
