Keith Davey’s Ten Commandments of Canadian Liberalism

  1. Revere the leader.
  2. Remember a leader is never cooked until people start to laugh at him.
  3. Stay on the road to reform; keep left of centre.
  4. Hang together.
  5. Build a poll organization worthy of the name.
  6. Lead to your strengths in campaigns; to your weakness in conventions.
  7. Never negotiate through fear; never fear to negotiate.
  8. Remember that in politics, perception is reality.
  9. Recruit new, bright, young people.
  10. Avoid public humour, but laugh a lot in private.

Just think at one time Liberals followed these rules… and won elections.
