AT LEAST I CAN TELL MY GRANDKIDS I WAS THE PREMIER ONCE
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
North of the Sunny Coast they think Pauline Hanson will be PM. Further north of there they are convinced she will be a ten-term President. But of course she cannot even be PM for a single day. The problem in North Queensland is that they suffer from heat stroke, too many stubbies, and they don’t understand the new voting system. What they are really saying is that they hate the two majors.
The LNP and Labor are disowning One Nation, as both majors always do, but one of them will gain government with One Nation as a junior partner, and that’s unlikely to be Labor who will again be aligning with the Greens and GetUp, despite Adani.
But Labor does have a secret weapon called Tim Nicholls. Premier Pluckachook, who seems ashamed of her Belarusian/Polish surname and has opted for a ridiculous quasi French interpretation of Palaszczuk... pronounced properly as Palatzook, and not "shay".
No-one should be ashamed of their surname.
It is an election between two Parties led by two of the most trivial simpletons in Queensland's history. But for half a century Queensland has been famous for its lack of leaders.
Pluckachook has shown her faded colours and wit by declaring she has no idea of the GST rate or the deficit. Nicholls is equally politically agnostic with a well-practised, artificial, silly grin that switches on and off while annoying the crap out of everyone.
His team, if that’s the word, has proven to be failures with Springborg, Langbroek and Seeney still seething over the disastrous Campbell Newman experiment.
I know these people and if ever a ruling Party needs the brake of a Senate it's both of these. Draining the Queensland swamp and its corrupt judicial arm makes Trump's job in DC look like a cinch.
Yep, the LNP was (and still is) so lacking in talent that it had to draft a diminutive ex-army bloke from the Mayor’s Office as Leader, when he wasn’t even a member of Parliament!
Labor's Dick exposed!
Cameron Dick got his $16.5 Health Budget figures so wrong his kids' shuttlecock club banned him from holding the treasurer's position.
This snap election will come down to a choice between two Parties who are both better suited in opposition with the electorate confined to choosing its own method of execution.
For Pluckachook to win it will take Pauline Hanson to be caught in the cot with Gautem Adani and his missus. For the LNP to win it will take Julia Gillard and Graham Richardson to join Labor’s campaign as an item.
The grandstanding Katter, who now claims to be the sixth most powerful person in Australia, is of no consequence and is content to play with his donger while FNQ burns.
As a concerned Queenslander I suggest lethal injection is probably the most painless method.
