traitors in the midst...




In Kanbra, that dismal town

Where politicians go to shit-pledge

They created a new broom
For the eradication of knowledge.

Built in most grand and cakeity
Out of the general GST
It came from shrewd cash-robbery —
Including from sir Tony Abbott turdy.

Little I though, when I was a bit mad
It would cost a modest penny
Over the pharmacy’s counter
As medicare refused to pay.

Millions of similar dishonest stance —
Pollies would make a pile
They would loot and take out
In grand and cakey style.

Into a universe of rubbish
Where dumb men would defend
Doses of immense heist-polish
In lingo of confused arse-end.

That future Kanbra flab would be
Many political lawyers diplomed
That no light could illuminate at home;
Crap by day, and crap by night be.

From this I learn, though I knew it before
That Kanbra's culture has her roots
On the oiled desk of parliament with more
bugger-larceny — powered by a pair of boots.

In a tweet from Fairfax reporter Bevan Shields, images of the petition showed three Queensland MPs had made notes next to their names.

Warren Entsch wrote the number 43 next to his name, as he reportedly only agreed to sign the petition if it would get it over the line.

Karen Andrews wrote “because this has to be resolved” next to her signature, while Scott Buchholz wrote “I support the office of the PM”.



Gus note:

In order to be fair, I used the word Kanbra only to define the political hubris that is plaguing that lovely town of CANBERRA...

kanbra political soup and witches brew...

Frontbencher Paul Fletcher kicks off the discussion.

"Cormann rumoured to be putting some WA votes behind Julie Bishop in round 1," he wrote to colleagues.

"Be aware that this is a ruse truing [sic] to get her ahead of Morrison so he drops out & his votes go to Dutton.

"Despite our hearts tugging us to Julie we need to vote with our heads for Scott in round one."

The recipients of the message include both ministers and backbenchers, and Christopher Pyne replied to say he had told Julie Bishop "very respectfully".

Mathias Cormann has denied to the ABC that he was employing such tactics to knock Ms Bishop out of the race.

The former deputy Liberal leader is yet to announce whether she will seek to retain a frontbench position, or if she will remain in Parliament at all.

"Mathias Cormann has denied to the ABC that he was employing such tactics to knock Ms Bishop out of the race."??? Of course this was a tactic to eliminate MORRISON.

judases, hiding their allegiance...

A host of government MPs fighting to hold on to their seats have erased the Liberals’ name and logo from campaign material, sparking Labor claims that the party’s brand is “toxic”.

As the Coalition struggles to lift its standing among voters in the lead-up to next month’s poll, MPs across the country appear to be relying on their personal standing to counter any backlash against the Liberals’ brand.

Victorian MPs Jason Wood, Sarah Henderson, Michael Sukkar and Russell Broadbent are among the state’s MPs who have chosen to drop the party’s branding from campaign material, relying instead on personalised campaign messages.

Scott Morrison was campaigning in government-held marginals in Victoria on Monday, where the Coalition fears up to six seats could be at risk.

Labor is confident that it can pick up the seats of La Trobe, held by Wood, and Corangamite, held by Henderson, as it exploits residual anger in the state about the removal of Malcolm Turnbull as leader.

Conservative MPs including Sukkar in Deakin and Nicolle Flint in the South Australian seat of Boothby have been targeted in their electorates for supporting Peter Dutton to become leader last August.

In Western Australia, conservative MP Andrew Hastie is running a presidential-style personal campaign, with the former SAS soldier’s Facebook page featuring a “Fighting for You” tagline alongside an image of an Australian flag.

Respect Citizen Abbott but vote MP Abbott out


By Thomas Keneally


What people outside Warringah do not understand is that within Warringah itself, Tony Abbott is not seen as the parliamentary wrecker depicted in the national press, but as something of a local hero.

At the Surf Lifesaving barbecue he is unpretentious and engaged and neighbourly. At charity events he makes notable contributions, such as the money his team in the Cole Classic recently raised in that famous swim. As GetUp has just discovered in its not very well-conceived advertisement, it is perilous to make fun of his volunteerism. That is because, whether in the surf, on the cycle or in the burning bush, he is an authentic and generous volunteer.

I, like many fellow residents, have to say that his relationship with me has always been most urbane. He knows I have never voted for him, but he holds no grudge. I have had the honour to debate him twice during the republican referendum period and found him a genial arguer if not above going for the man rather than the ball. But he is not alone in that.

Now, what is obvious about my beloved fellow citizens and electors of Warringah is that their majority default position is to vote Liberal. That’s a small price for an old Labor voter like me to pay for living among such agreeable folk in such an exquisite part of the world. But now it is clear that many are moving against the neo-conservative wing of the Liberal Party to which Abbott belongs.

They will not be voting Labor, of course. Though the Labor candidate, Dean Harris of Mosman, is a very high quality candidate, Warringah just doesn’t vote Labor. Admittedly they did in the late 1970s at the state level, electing Alan Stewart for two terms, and these days voters in Warringah believe Labor has "a set" against them.

But the voters have shown recently that when they feel disinherited by the Liberal government of the day, they will vote for progressive independents. Zali Steggall, an impressive and eloquent woman, is the obvious recourse for a great number of previous Abbott voters. And there will be a fairly strong cohort of Green votes for Kristyn Glanville too.

My argument is that Citizen Abbott is an altruistic being. His fraternal volunteering and fundraising should continue to be honoured, and he should be respected for having been our prime minister. He should be wished happiness and a long life. But I find myself in agreement with the thousands of others on the many reasons why House of Representatives Abbott should not be elected again.

To begin with, his argument is that as generators of such a small proportion of the output that creates global warming, Australia needs to do little. Let the big guys begin. But in his hostility to the new industries and the lack of certainty created by his government in encouraging new industries, he locks us into a future where the Chinese, who are addressing their contribution to global warming, will also provide our future technologies. This means, with our hands full of coal worth less and less, we will remain a colony, with no cleverness of our own to sell to the outside world.
