DOWN AND OUT IN SOUTH AUSTRALIA
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.
If you travel around 1100k north from Adelaide you will find a dotted line that separates SA from NT. Rub it out. Then travel another 200k north and declare Alice Springs the new Capital of SANT. Shift every Tasmanian to SANT and repopulate Tasmania with endangered species including Kevin Rudd who is still searching for a meaningful role as a leader of something. Pobblebonk frogs will do.
SANT can then revert to a new renewable energy devised by its Aborigines who will show Premier Weatherill, only after he unplugs the double adaptor to Victoria’s coal power, how to rub two sticks together.
Those hideous windmills can double as fans for when it gets really hot and everyone can marry everyone else including kangaroos, emus and the odd wombat.
And Katherine can host the Aboriginal opera season https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wo8dWds6BdI
Okay, so that’s all bullshit, but the gerrymander that has supported Green Labor in South Australia for far too long won’t matter anymore. SA really IS the weakest link.
South Australians were not prepared to risk another red head
It’s astonishing that the SA Libs at the last election got 53 per cent of the 2PP vote yet Labor with 47 per cent retained Office. Under this mad system the Libs once got 57 per cent of the 2PP vote yet still finished up losing to Labor.
Not that the hopeless Libs deserved power with a red head as Leader, but successive SA Labor Governments (with around 15 years of Australia supporting their pointless existence) certainly don’t!
Their only claim to fame is Eddie Betts who kicks a goal now and then and some tuna fisherman bloke who was an Olympic weightlifter.
Oh, and there’s a rich sheila called Julia Gillard who holds an awful lot of records for something.
It used to have a car industry and a ship building industry that supported the union movement that was supported by the rest of Australia and now Christopher Pyne is supported by a Federally supported submarine industry that will produce submarines for double the cost of elsewhere... but hey, Chris is a nice bloke so they tell me.
But fair dinkum, WTF did we need SA for anyway? Of course we never did, and sooner or later there will always be a stock take. Oh well, I guess the US has its Puerto Rico and the EU its Greece.
As Kermit once said, “It’s not easy being Green, except if you are a Crow.”
