THE STICK INSECT IS AT LEAST KEEPING HER POWDER DRY
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.
There are a few more heads to chew off before this little insect is finished, she lives longer than male insects, while only the males can fly, and she spends six months as a nymph. Hmmm.
But she’s a cunning little insect because she is a known failure at anything other than doling out cash to people who ask for it or demand it.
She copped intense criticism as Liberal Party Shadow Treasurer for apparently having no interest in exposing the economic vandalism of Kevin Rudd and Wayne Swan.
Despite her being a multi millionaire, due to her days at law firm Clayton Utz, she appears to have little interest in, or knowledge of, finance as she lasted only 56 days at Harvard Business School.
She objected loudly when told she had to go.
WTF was her Mr Wonderful doing seated (albeit asleep) at the UN?
She competes with Gillard in the boyfriend stakes too and at 62, and in need of a good ironing, she boasts plenty of past partners. Both Liberal State Senator Ross Lightfoot and Lord Mayor of Perth Peter Nattrass felt their necks at risk before calling a halt to the relationship prior to her snaring Property developer David Panton.
The Foreign Affairs portfolio is bullet proof and sequestered from dangerously damaging domestic portfolios, but ability aside, as long as she can tell the difference between canapes and hors d'oeuvres and knows which side her bread is buttered she will not soil her Depends until after ScoMo falters or she can organise another assassination.
Don’t be fooled, she has made a lot of low friends in high places, and definitely has her Left eye on the top job. If successful she would also compete fairly with Gillard’s disastrous performances.
In the meantime she will be happy to flit around Perth in the social set of one of the safest seats going… but you can be certain the treacherous Stick Insect will return to the fray to chew off a few more heads post copulation.
