Our pinko/watermelon government handed down its budget today and....you guessed it...the biggest deficit in Tasmania's history.

Nats romp home in Northern Tablelands

"NATIONALS candidate Adam Marshall has won the Northern Tablelands seat previously held by Richard Torbay.

The early count gives him about 60 per cent of the vote and counting is continuing throughout the night.

Herman Beyersdorf from Country Labor, a Greens candidate, and three independents, including Armidale mayor Jim Maher also contested the seat.

Silvana Nero, the fiancee of state MP Fred Nile, also ran as a Christian Democratic Party candidate.

The by-election was called after Mr Torbay's resignation in March, a day after the Nationals dumped him as the candidate for the federal seat of New England."


-----------------------------------------------

This result may interest Tony Windsor. The State Northern Tablelands seat is similar to the Fed seat of New England except without the city of Tamworth and immediate surrounds. I can't imagine Barnaby chose to contest New England without soem decent intel. This result will hearten him.

Hope you're right. While he is a complete and utter goose, he is good value in the media for a chuckle. And the bonus of ousting that turncoat qunt Windsor will be sprinkles on top of the ice cream.

Seems the Pinkos have come to the obvious conclusion before ICAC does

"Former NSW government ministers Eddie Obeid and Ian Macdonald have been expelled from Labor for bringing the party into disrepute.

State Opposition Leader John Robertson has confirmed the pair have been expelled over allegations aired at the Independent Commission Against Corruption (ICAC) about the granting of mining licences.

He told ABC radio that the ICAC hearings were keeping NSW politics in a holding pattern.
...
Mr Obeid's lawyers have previously warned the ALP of legal action if their client is expelled from the party."


----------------------------------------------

Watch this space. It could get highly amusing if Obeid is good to his word and takes legal action against the State Pinkos. Hopefully he does so prior to the Federal Election. An ugly Pinko spat during the Fed Election campaign will be the icing on the cake.

Rule 1 of the NSW ALP: Always expel the crooks before the verdict comes in.

Meanwhile Rudd puts his head up, and advises everyone to keep their heads down, or pull them in.

I heard a prediction the other day that Rudd's seat may be the only one the ALP holds in Queensland after September 14 ... cannot believe this will occur, but the pundit seemed confident.

It was a "worst case" outcome but not implausible if CanDo keeps his head down for the next 100 days.

So Campbell Newman accepts a 42% payrise while Queensland's unemployment rate rockets to 6.4% - it's highest in a decade.

'cando fill his pockets'....they have so much power in a one party state that they have dispensed with the need for brown paper bags...

cando looks increasingly like the fascist Berlusconi...expect he will be rushing legislation to prevent him and cronies from ever being charged and that there will be a return to the gerrymander to ensure the chips remain a one party state

Last nooz report I heard was that CanDo was out of the country but on his way back to tear someone a new arsehole over the Qld Pollie pay rise debacle. Only Banjos could claim they got the maths wrong and didn't realise that the pay rise they granted themselves was gonna be so large.

Yeah. I don't think his Treasurer is going to be in that role for long.

So it may be the case that CanDo actually corrects things somewhat and regains some respect from the electorate.

Therefore, as media stories alluded today, he will rock back into the country, kick the Banjo Treasurer up the dinger, and take much of the massive pay rise away, thus saving much face with the electorate, even gaining some praise. Perhaps the Banjo Treasure was doing Abbott a sly favour. Wink
