Gangsters Out goes political

The B.C. blog Gangsters Out has launched a political party in Surrey.

The blog is best known for its coverage of Hells Angels activity in British Columbia and other gang-related crime, court cases, and rumours.

Dennis Watson, director of the Green Justice Party, is encouraging people to join and run in this fall's civic election.

A pet issue is what he calls "the LRT fraud in Surrey" and the defeat of the Surrey First party. He says there is no need for light rapid transit in Surrey beyond extending the SkyTrain system, and that cost projections are out of control.

"As far as I'm concerned that is the primary election issue. We need to address the TransLink tax fraud once and for all."

Watson isn't running for office, calling himself an activist, not a politician. But he is endorsing Doug Elford of the Surrey Community Alliance and independent Roslyn Cassells.

"I don't have the patience to be a politician. I'd get in a fist fight with those clowns right in the middle of chambers and end up in jail," said Watson.

He says the ideals of the Green Justice Party are similar to those of the Justice Party in the United States: preserving constitutional civil liberty, weeding out corporate influence in government, opposing taxation without representation, and fiscal responsibility.

Its slogan is: No Justice, No Peace. Know Justice, Know Peace.
