the clownish events in the Vic libs that have seen big ted chopped and Dr Mothballs installed, pale into insignificance when the backroom staff comes out ...connections back to ljh

but these events are dwarfed by the little story about the brown baggery in Chipville with Costello front and central.....this is going to get very nasty in banjoland ...

Dear skully (and Fromage)

These matters are all interconnected and go to the dark and grasping heart of the national tories...they also show the craven born to rule mentality of these turkeys

Dear Fromage

Could I respectfully suggest that the matters in State politics involve current and former members of the Federal Opposition and their staff.

Further these matters are subject to comment by federal politicians on both sides of the political divide

Australia has a Federal system of government (for good or ill) involving the Commonwealth and the States...there are few matters of public interest that do not involve both levels of government. Moreover the political parties at a national level also operate at a State level - behaviour at one level cannot be isolated from the other..

Regards
Horace

"The NSW opposition leader, John Robertson, has moved to have the former Labor powerbroker Eddie Obeid suspended from the party, describing allegations aired about him during a corruption hearing as "shocking".

During day one of an inquiry by the Independent Commission Against Corruption into the awarding of lucrative coal licences by the former mineral resources minister Ian Macdonald, the commission heard NSW taxpayers have missed out on "tens of millions of dollars" due to a scheme designed to allegedly net the Obeid family $100 million."

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

Pinko grubs, Obeid and McDonald, lining their own pockets at the expense of tax payers. Symptomatic of the thinking of all union-based Labor politicians.

I hope that greasy Obeid qunt ends up behind bars.

Pinkos are funny. Fatty O'Barrell is laughing at the distraction, and the reminder to electorate what a pack of corrupt grubs Pinkos are.
Above were posted in THIS thread - my only comments on the Obeid debacle.

For Ponts benefit. He's gone off half-cocked and emotional as usual.

I couldn't find the "Trouble in Territory politics" thread so this will have to do here. Not a good day for black Tories.


The NT political spill that solved nothing: MPs threaten breakaway

BOB GOSFORD
Darwin-based journalist and The Northern Myth blogger

Yesterday afternoon the slow moving train wreck that is the Northern Territory Country Liberal Party government led by Terry "Freckles" Mills drove itself over a cliff.

Just six months old and riddled with in-fighting and struggling to get a message -- any message -- across, the CLP may soon split into a smattering of fringe parties and coalitions. If that does happen you can expect a new election within months.

Yesterday the CLP's parliamentary wing met to select a deputy from what is a rapidly diminishing -- in number and quality -- political gene pool. The result pleased no one and leaves the leadership of the CLP more in doubt than ever. Adam Giles was nominated as deputy and Treasurer by Alison Anderson -- he declined her nomination and called on a spill for the chief minister's job.

Crikey understands Anderson withdrew her support for Giles taking the top job and that the three newly elected Aboriginal MLAs (Larissa Lee, Bess Price and Francis Maralampuwi Xavier) followed her lead. Anderson apparently threatened to resign from the CLP and would take her "bush coalition" to form a new party that would enter into a balance-of-power coalition with independent MLA (and former king-
maker) Gerry Wood and, bizarrely, NT Labor led by Delia Lawrie.

Maralampuwi Xavier apparently told the meeting "I'm gonna tell all the media that I'm no more CLP, I'm going with Gerry Wood and we are going with Labor to form government in a coalition".

Crikey understands current Speaker and former Mills deputy (in opposition) Kezia Purick then nominated Anderson for the position of deputy, which she then also declined.

During the 27-year reign of the CLP from 1974 through to Clare Martin's drought-breaking win in 2001, it was said the toughest job in Australian politics was to lead the NT Labor Party in opposition. Now it seems that has been turned on itís head, with the toughest -- and apparently least-wanted job -- being the deputy leadership of the CLP in government.

The CLP spend the day doing an extended run around the table looking for nominations for the second-to-top job. By late afternoon their very surprising choice was Willem Westra Van Holthe, the member for the bush seat of Katherine, 300 kilometres south of Darwin.

Westra Van Holthe has some political lead in his saddlebags. Last year he faced a bitter pre-selection fight -- that still rankles locally -- for his seat and in 2011 was the subject of an Ombudsman's report into his activities while a serving NT Police officer .

Anderson may not be the only one considering a breakaway from the CLP. Crikey understands at least two CLP branches held emergency branch meetings in the wake of yesterday's chaos and that there are calls for a new party to be established.

Number-crunching -- very optimistic in my view -- suggests that as many as seven of the CLP's MLAs could join. But the important numbers would be in the bush, where Mills has done a great job alienating many of the rank and file members.
If the CLP can't get rid of Mills through a gutless parliamentary wing they may just have to resort to extreme measures.

Geoff Shaw seems like an absolute nutter.

State politics really is a sheltered workshop for party nobodies.

Shaw is a disgrace, as is the state govt. here in general. Seem more concerned about pollies' superannuation than implementing any decent policies. The only thing they have done is made their rich friends richer.

Ban State Governments.

Federal + councils should be enough. States already have the Senate.

One example of a Lib. Strewth, you're struggling. Just about every Pinko MP does time on a Council prior to State Parliament, many as Mayor.

The Tas Premier LaLa Giddings gave a 'state of the state' speech this week. Apparently the opposition handed around weasel word bingo cards beforehand. Didn't take long for the first cry of Bingo apparently. Laughing

McGowan ran a good campaign and still got smashed

If the results translate federally ...Smith might lose his seat ...Gray and Parkes would be safe
