Word of the Day: gormless #nlpoli

Russell Wangersky:

At this point, the Official Opposition is floundering around looking for an issue, and they can't see that they are trampling around so heavily that they've pounded their moral high ground right down into the bottom of the barrel.

My advice to the clearly gormless opposition, whose members, without a doubt, are unable to hear the sound of their own voices?

Point out simply that the provincial government should do the right thing. Advance the argument. Or move on.

You're not standing up for the little guy any more.

You're just standing up to further your own ends.

The word applies not only in this particular case of Yvonne Jones and the Winters tragedy, it’s been the word to describe the entire caucus for quite some time.
