Why are they bothering maintaining a coalition when they could govern in their own right?

Upper house numbers

Federal implications ...Tony Crook etc

Royalties for Regions

Grylls would have gone with Carps at the last election but was over ruled by the Party

Tradition

Barnett is clever

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

aye & bind registered parties, their officials and political nufties to the same standards of disclosure and accountability as listed companies and their officeholders.

So the LNP knife their second elected State/ Territory leader in the back in 2 weeks.

Tony might have to get a bit worried after 14 September.

The CLP leader was Kneeboned - replaced without consultation by an indigenous polly. A move patented by the Vulture.

Being serious for a minute, it is astonishing that the party rules don't call for a vote while the current leader is in the country and at least able to fight for his position.

Indeed. I thought it pretty weak to dump the leader when he's away.

Do Pinkos come any more corrupt than this qunt?

"Former minerals minister Ian Macdonald ignored repeated advice from his department that he could not simply grant an exploration licence for a training mine in the Hunter to his close friend, mining union boss John Maitland, the corruption watchdog has been told.

But instead of heeding his department, the minister became a proponent for the mine, and granted the licence without tender, turning Mr Maitland's original $166,000 investment into a $15 million profit.
...
Peter Braham SC, said the Doyles Creek training mine “was essentially gifted” to a group of investors from Newcastle, including Mr Maitland, who had been a leading figure in the mining division of the Construction, Forestry, Mining and Energy Union.

The result was a “financial disaster for the taxpayers of NSW and a gold mine for the investors”, he told the commission."


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

And then the corrupt qunt had the hide to celebrate the inking of the contract with a tax-payer funded $1,800 lunch at Catalinas.

I hope they chuck the prick in jail and let him rot. Symptomatic of a scumbag political party who kowtows to Unions all the time.

Wasn't there some commentary within his Will indicating that he had been an extremely fortunate gambler?
An old WWII digger friend of the family knew Askin during their service days. His face would change colour anytime the name was mentioned.

Vic by-election sees 15% swing against Pinkos

"After counting on Saturday night in the seat of Lyndhurst, the ALP primary vote had plunged to 40.9 per cent. Its first-preference vote had previously never dipped below 50 per cent. Mr Pakula’s spokesman did not wish to comment on the 14.6 per cent swing against Labor.

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

God, I hope this is replicated at the Fed Election in Sept. And this was with no Lib candidate standing. Clearly the Pinkos are still well on the nose. Shocked

"About farken time" says Wagga based man

"Queenslanders could be hit with a new tax as the Newman Government considers putting a levy in next month's budget.

It has been confirmed the levy is being discussed by senior ministers to pay to flood proof infrastructure in vulnerable areas."


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

"Let's get a Levy for the Levees before the weather's not dry". innocent
