CENTRIST PARTY FOR XENOPHON?

...don’t think so Nick

Larry Pickering

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.

BLOG / FACEBOOK



It’s just a jump to the Left, and then a step to the Right and it’s... “let’s do the time warp again!” Then back to the Centre in a frantic attempt to garner votes by being all things to all people. 

That’s a Party going nowhere. The vacuum in Aussie politics is not at the Centre... that’s a no-man’s land representing no-one and doomed to failure. Check history! 

A handful of single-issue jerks in the Senate are right now governing Australia, and that’s the problem. No identifiable political ideology can be attached to any one of them, none can boast a Statement of Faith or even a brief manifesto that shows what they stand for.

The Nats (the original Country Party) are lost in another no-man’s land between rural interests and urban imperatives, serving neither, and the Libs are slowly dying in an amalgam of socialism and conservatism. 

At least you know exactly where the Labor Party intends to take you. Exactly to where you were before, there is no embarrassment, they proudly admit it! 

And still everyone wonders why Labor is ahead in the polls!

Either global warming is all bullshit or it’s not, either gay marriage is okay or it’s not, either the Islamification of Australia is a good thing or it’s not, either abortion is okay or it’s not, either the GST should be increased or it shouldn’t be. 

Can you explain where the Coalition stands as one on any of these contentious issues? It's running away from all of them!

Conservative Parties are busily taking votes on whether or not to allow conscience votes while the Labor Party is telling you exactly how it will vote, and if any bastard dares cross the floor he will be expelled from the Party! 

And Nick Xenophon wants to start another Centrist (equivocation) Party?

There certainly is a gaping vacuum in the political landscape right now but it’s nowhere near the Centre... it’s on the Right!

Disenchanted Labor Voters run to the Greens, disenchanted Conservative voters have nowhere to run, except informal. The DLP, Democrats, PUP and an array of pretenders ... all gone! Finished! Why? Because they all drifted to the Centre chasing votes that never really belonged to them. 

And that’s why Tony Abbott had better decide very quickly who and what he and his Party stand for.

John Howard took the most contentious tax in history, the GST, to an election and won. Why? Because he believed in it, it needed to happen. He stood up for it, he justified it and he sold it, despite its possible electoral cost.

People need certainty, they need to plan their lives, a lack of policy certainty is death for any Party. The Greens are holding their own and they aren’t backward in promoting their loony agenda. 

The voter has never been so disillusioned, but there is an option on the far Left for the Labor voter. Where is the option for the Coalition voter? 

If Coalition voters had somewhere further Right to go the Coalition would get the vote back in preferences anyway, but the Coalition is hypnotised by the first preference.

The Labor Party are sluts, they will hop into bed with the Greens, the people they hate the most. But would Tony Abbott ever hop into bed with Pauline Hanson, despite the fact that no Hanson voter would ever vote Green or Labor anyway? 

Right wing parties are now popping up like mushrooms after a storm because people need somewhere to go. They need someone to listen to them.

We will as usual follow the British and European social experiments and the lesson to be learnt from there is the failure of Islamic integration. 

Most Australians recognise the problem but no Party in Australia is prepared to even discuss it.

Any Party that in future holds the balance of power, and there will be one, will have as its prominent platform the growing threat of Islam. 

Don’t expect the Left to upset a large part of its voter base in marginal electorates, the Islamic problem is the Right’s problem.

And that’s why Nick Xenophon is playing with his donger if he thinks there’s a vacant spot in the Centre.

VOTE 1 - HANSON Pauline

The ONLY Politician with Any Guts!!!!

I believe the day is not far distant when the Liberal party splinters into two distinct factions. One will be led by Turnbull or someone similar in political and social policy settings, the other by a Barnaby Joyce type person as a result of the Right Liberal faction uniting with the Rightist elements of the National party. It is very likely a schism would having happened had Turnbull won the Liberal leadership in 2009. Abbott came in to the cheers of the Right Liberals - now, with his conscience driven policies on matters like the constitutional recognition of aborigines (whatever that word now means) he is all but indistinguishable from Turnbull and his leftist supporters.

Have you had a look at this party Larry? http://australianlibertyalliance.org/downloads/ALA_MANIFESTO_OG14001R1.pdf

Thanks Larry, you have put your finger on the problem. You have described where I stand at the moment. No party really represents me.

http://www.australianlibertyalliance.org/ Launching in October 2015 in WA with Geert Wilders as guest speaker - http://www.news.com.au/national/australian-liberty-alliance-backed-by-antiislam-dutch-mp-geert-wilders-set-for-launch/story-fncynjr2-1226844624729

This is one conservative voter who have voted informal for a few years now. I agree with you Larry, either the voting system changes or this country will fall into disarray. There is at present not one politicians who has the guts to govern this country as it should be governed. Too many back downs by Tony Abbott.

I'm thinking of switching to family first. They are as close to conservative as you can get. check out their policies on their website . here is the climate change page http://www.nsw-familyfirst.org.au/climate-change/

Contd:you might want to share this with your friends.

If you think the free ride is essential to your way of life,
then you will probably not share this.

BUT, God help us all when the gate slams shut!

Quote for today:
"Many problems we face today are there because the people
who work for a living are now outnumbered by those who don't."

AND THEN THE LAZY BLUDGERS IN AUSTRALIA WILL WHINGE LIKE STUCK PIGS.
WE WILL ALL BE STUCK PIGS ON THE ‘LABOR’ BBQ’s.

WAKE UP … YOU MUGS!!

Contd:The young man then told the professor that is
exactly what he sees happening in N. America .
The government keeps pushing us toward Communism/Socialism and
keeps spreading the free corn out in the form of programs such as
supplemental income, tax credit for unearned income, tax exemptions,
tobacco subsidies, dairy subsidies, payments not to plant crops (CRP),
welfare entitlements, medicine, drugs, etc..,
while we continually lose our freedoms, just a little at a time.

One should always remember two truths:
There is no such thing as a free lunch:
You can never hire someone to provide a service for you cheaper
than you can do it yourself.

If you see that all of this wonderful government
"help" is a problem confronting the future of democracy in N. America

Contd: They get used to that and start to eat again. You continue
until you have all four sides of the fence up with a gate in the last side.

"The pigs, which are used to the free corn, start to come through the
gate to eat that free corn again.
You then slam the gate on them and catch the whole herd.

"Suddenly the wild pigs have lost their freedom.
They run around and around inside the fence, but they are caught.
Soon they go back to eating the free corn.
They are so used to it that they have forgotten how to forage
in the woods for themselves, so they accept their captivity."

CHe had been shot while fighting communists in his native country
who were trying to overthrow his country's government
and install a new communist regime.
In the midst of his story, he looked at the professor and
asked a strange question.

He asked: "Do you know how to catch wild pigs?"

The professor thought it was a joke and asked for the punch line.
The young man said that it was no joke.
"You catch wild pigs by finding a suitable place in the woods
and putting corn on the ground.
The pigs find it and begin to come every day to eat the free food..

"When they are used to coming every day, you put a fence down
one side of the place where they are used to coming.
When they get used to the fence,
they begin to eat the corn again and you put up another side of the fence.

AND so it is in Australia!!!
The Labor mobsters are our greatest enemy!
Wild Pigs - A Reminder For Everyone.
Worth thinking about AND SHARING IT AS FAR AND WIDE AS POSSIBLE …NOW!!

A thought to remember, Marx said,
"Remove one freedom per generation and soon
you will have no freedom and no one would have noticed."
There was a chemistry professor in a large college
that had an exchange students in the class.

One day while the class was in the lab,
the professor noticed one young man,
an exchange student, who kept rubbing his back and
stretching as if his back hurt.
The professor asked the young man what was the matter.

The student told him he had a bullet lodged in his back.
He had been shot while fighting communists in his native country
who were trying to overthrow hi

Xenophon is just a populist opportunist looking for a camera. He generally sides with Labor and Greens. His interest is not the voter but the pig trough.

I think the best thing Nick could do is tie a couple of lead weights on his feet and drive that car into the Torrens

There IS somewhere for conservatives and those on the right to go - Family First (eg Senator Bob Day) for those who are socially conservative but want to see a decrease in the power and size of government, and also a decrease in the influence of the left, Unions and greens. Or the Liberal Democratic Party (LDP eg Senator David Leyonhjelm). This is a moderate libertarian party along the lines of the ideas of Milton Friedman, Friedrich Hayek and Ayne Rand. They strongly believe in smaller government, are anti-Nanny-state, want far less regulations, believe in personal responsibility, lower taxes, anti-middle-class welfare etc. That is, all the things the Liberals say they are bit don't do.

Xenaphon is a low life lap dog for the Communist.

you say a lot with few words
