When Danny Williams was our premier, I found it difficult to believe that Yvonne Jones could ever reach that level. However, now I find myself asking, if Cathy Dunderdale can be premier, why not Ms Jones? Using Mr. Williams as a bench-mark for premiership,is going result in a long wait for one of similar capabilities...regardless of what naysayers might say.

The LIBERALS will NEVER form a government with Yvonne Jones. Make no wonder why Dumberdale has a large smile; nothing to fear from Jones!!.

Speedy, Liberals would have been accused of back-stabbing yet again if they had dumped Yvonne after her recent health issues. It was a lose-lose proposition for them. Don't you think that a party can have a lot of leadership even if the perception of the leader is that he/she is weak. I do believe the perceptions of Ms Jones are too harsh and it reflects a failure of people to seriously examine her performance in comparison to the current Premier. She has shown a much greater ability to debate and grasp issues than has Ms Dunderdale so her perceived weakness is not as apparent as when Danny was premier. In that instance, Danny could do no wrong and people chose to see everybody else as weak. History will show this was overly harsh on others and is one of the more regretable legacies of the Danny regime - it appeared that he was the only real leader we could ever have. How sad!!

I do not think it is normal that the Liberal Party failed to elect a new leader before the elections in October. I have nothing against Yevonne Jones but I do not think she is the right person to lead. In politics, though this may be normal, look what the Federal Liberals did, leaving Michael as their leader.
