Who’s David and who’s Goliath?

Anna, Anna, Anna – can you not dream up some more smears to throw at Campbell Newman (don’t mention all the Labor politicians who have been jailed and/or found guilty of corruption, by the way)?  Time is running out.

This campaign seems to have created a new low in politics.  (Let’s all have a bit of chuckle over Pete’s (Beattie) opinion that Anna has campaigned very well.  Hee, hee.)

[Anna Bligh] said the poll made it clear Labor was facing a “David and Goliath” battle and her role was to ensure her party still had enough seats to form a healthy opposition.

“If the poll is replicated, we’re not only set to see a change in government, but potentially one in which that government has almost unfettered power,” she said.

LNP leader Campbell Newman says a Labor smear campaign against him is a threat to democracy, as the Queensland election enters its final week.
QUEENSLAND’S Labor government is headed for a devastating defeat at Saturday’s state election, if the latest opinion poll proves accurate.

“I don’t think that’s good for Queensland and I don’t think it’s healthy for a democracy.

“So that tells me it’s my duty is to get out there and hang on to as many seats as we possibly can.”

Ms Bligh also defended a Labor campaign attacking LNP leader Campbell Newman’s personal integrity.

The Crime and Misconduct Commission on Friday cleared Mr Newman of any impropriety over three separate issues that have plagued his campaign.

Labor has repeatedly referenced the allegations in the lead up to polling day.

“I think calling into question the suitability of your opponent is a very legitimate activity during the campaign,” she said.

“If Queenslanders are contemplating a change then I do think we need to know more about who they’re contemplating changing to.

“There are a lot of questions about Mr Newman’s financial dealings and his time as lord mayor.”

    Labor’s tactics aren’t healthy for democracy. Questioning an opponent’s suitability is one thing; falsely accusing them is entirely another. It says a lot about Labor that when under pressure they resort to such base behaviour.

  2. C.L.

    … Anna, Anna, Anna – don’t mention all the Labor politicians who have been jailed and/or found guilty of corruption, by the way…

    Amongst other things.

    Former party leaders Keith Wright and Bill D’Arcy were convicted and jailed for raping children.

    Bligh has run possibly the worst and stupidest campaign I’ve ever seen. She spent months attacking the attractive and personable Mrs Newman and her Order of Australia-winning, lifetime public medico father (one of Australia’s top facial reconstruction surgeons).

    Turns out people didn’t like that so much.

  3. lotocoti

    potentially one in which that government has almost unfettered power

    So Anna, when did almost unfettered power become a bad thing?
    2001 Labor 66/89
    2004 Labor 63/89
    2006 Labor 59/89
    2009 Labor 51/89

    If the poll is replicated, we’re not only set to see a change in government, but potentially one in which that government has almost unfettered power …
    A government that is answerable to the people at regular elections, and subject to criticism by a free and fair media between elections, is not “unfettered”.
    But a government which shows signs of fettering the free press (despite having significantly more than half the media on side most of the time, in tribal mode) while not reforming a highly biassed government funded national broadcasting organisation has flagged that it is interested in the concept of itself being even less fettered by criticism. That’s a virtual early warning system pointing to an impending degradation of the democratic processes.
    Not that they’re in such great shape anyway, given the outcomes of the last two federal elections.

  5. Gab

    Anna’s run a great campaign. Truly reflective of her premiership.

  6. John Comnenus

    Beattie has truly be clowned himself with his ‘what would Mackenroth (his former deputy) advise column? I almost spat out my tea when he said Newman and the LNP should have vetted candidates more thoroughly to avoid dubious ones. So Pete, how did you and Mackenroth go vetting Bill D’Arcy?

    The ALP has no shame, none at all.

  7. Mk50 of Brisbane

    John, John, John.

    Nothing the matter with him by George! D’Arcy was just a kiddie fiddling rockspider. Y’know, one of the typical chaps the ALP likes to recruit. He was not a pervert, I mean, it was not like he wanted to balance the budget or something offensively kinky like that!

    /sarc off

    [Anna Bligh] said the poll made it clear Labor was facing a “David and Goliath” battle and her role was to ensure her party still had enough seats to form a healthy opposition.

    No Anna, the public seem to want to have a small opposition for very good reasons. They really don’t give a fuck about the state of your party after the swiping.

    “If the poll is replicated, we’re not only set to see a change in government, but potentially one in which that government has almost unfettered power,” she said.

    Unlike you had dipshit? Oh hang on, that’s right you did have unfettered power and you truly fucked it.

    There are certainly a lot questions yet to be answered; those of Mizz Blighter’s most scurrilous accusations about people not even running for election, and without a shred of evidence.

  11. Max Scream

    If the LNP were any good they would have won in 2009.

    With the country outside of the mining sector in near catastrophe capitalism-induced recession, its all too easy for the LNP.

    For a number of years there has been a steady stream of Lie-bore hacks who have spent time on secondment in the US volunteering for the Democrats.

    2 old friends spent time working in districts in Florida in 2008 learning the dark arts.

    Is there any wonder the filthy smearing approach to politics comes so naturally to these who get into parliament?

  13. blogstrop

    Capitalism induces recessions? Who knew?

  14. lotocoti

    If the LNP were any good they would have won in 2009.

    You are, for once, correct.
    But when 49.1% 2pp will only get you 34 of 89 seats, good will never be good enough to win.

  15. Boris

    Max what’s your point? Any reasonable person (left or right) knows that the main reason for ALP wipe out in QLD is that they have screwed up on all fronts. Similar to NSW. But not Vic where people’s views are split along party lines.

  16. Mark P

    The “new low in politics” is Barry’s attempt to throw democratically elected representatives out of the NSW State Parliament.

    And strange – not a peep from the supposed libertarian crowd on this blog.

  17. Nick Ferrett

    Watching the rending of garments over at LP is pretty funny

  18. Boris

    Mark P, a nice diversion. What do you think of Bligh’s smear campaign against the LNP leader’s wife and her father?

    As long as they’re not replaced by appointees rather than elected representatives, who gives a damn?

  21. C.L.

    Haven’t been to LP in a coon’s age.

    Tyro Rex is sad about an LNP government:

    We’ll see a whole raft of really nasty anti-union legislation and plenty of environmental destruction even if the LNP are limited to only two terms.

    We hope so, Tyro. We really hope so.

    Paul Norton fears…

    …and they won’t be able to help themselves from having a go at the Anti-Discrimination Act.

    And then how will the various retarded spouses of certain unnamed Labor politicians earn a living, hey?

    Fran’s there, of course:

    On the other hand, Kim, Tyro, it’s hard to feel great sympathy for the ALP. It’s not as if they’ve gone down fighting the good fight — waving the Red Flag, fighting for equity in public policy and ecological sustainability.

    Note the cheerful nod to the worst mass murderers in history. Fran is saying Bligh didn’t live up to the example set by leftist heroes Pol Pot and Mao Tse Tung.

    Lefty Kim says Newman will abolish the environment:

    Many fear that we will have no environment left, no rights, and no way back.

  22. Mark P

    Fording elected representatives out of office is acceptable to you, seemingly.
    What a disgrace.

  23. Boris

    Mark P, care to answer my question?

  24. Pickles

    Qld has no upper house so the government of the day does has unfettered power. Labor has wielded that power with unfettered brutality for 2 decades. Now the boot will be on the other foot as it were

    There will be weeping and wailing and gnashing of teeth. For those without teeth, they will be provided.

  25. lotocoti

    Barry’s attempt to throw blah blah blah

    So I guess you’re happy with Clover’s special kind of crazy on a state and local level.

  26. Mark P

    Anna, Anna, Anna – can you not dream up some more smears to throw at Campbell Newman (don’t mention all the Labor politicians who have been jailed and/or found guilty of corruption, by the way)?

    Mrs Sloan,
    You could interchangeably put the words “National Party” in this sentence.
    The absence of an upper house seems to foster corruption on an institutional scale.

  27. C.L.

    Labor abolished the Upper House using dirty tricks after wilfully ignoring two referendum results that backed its continuation. It rose for the last time at 8:37 pm, 27 October 1921.

    Here it is, just as it was left 90 years ago:

  28. Boris

    More generally, I think state elections in the last 15 years is a great example of how democratic politics work. There was a time when all states were ALP and there was talk the Libs are finished in state politics. And indeed Bob Carr, Peter Beattie, Steve Bracks, Mike Rann and Geoff Gallop look like sound and not particularly radically left managers, while oppposition looked weak and rife with internal squabbles. I remember discussion on Cat how the NSW Lib right managed to get rid of John Brogden while being themselves unelctable.

    We have come the full circle. With the exception of South Australia.

    This is not really left vs right. It is just that every government has a use-by date, beyond which it becomes rotten.

  37. C.L.

    This is not really left vs right. It is just that every government has a use-by date, beyond which it becomes rotten.

    No, it’s about Labor governments making electricity a luxury, making land use impossible, being corrupt and having no leaders or even members who know anything about life outside of union clerkdom.

    Stop playing these stupid games and man up. If you’re a “Finkelsteinion” then man up a little and say so.

    This is the key point. The absence of effective oversight is toxic for democracy. You only have to look at National Party and Labor regimes in Queensland.
    We can only hope that the Upper House in NSW has the good sense to tell Barry that his attempt to tell the people of NSW their votes don’t count is equally unacceptable.

    JC, I think our special friend has his undies all wadded up over moves to close the loophole which allows Clover Moore to be Mayor of Sydney as well as holding a seat in state parliament.

  48. entropy

    it will be interesting watching tactics change the last week.

    Bligh will have to switch to rolling over and hoping some people will vote ALP because they think the LNP will win too big. The fact that the ALP has previously won similar landslides apparently is not relevant.

    The LNP will be emphasising it is time for a new government an the only way of doing that is to vote LNP .

    This will not be as easy as it seems. Because of a law that restricts the number of seats to 89, as brisbane has grown more quickly than everywhere else, the number of seats in the ALP stronghold of Brisbane has grown, while the number of seats in the LNP stronghold (everywhere else) has shrunk.

    Another factor from newspoll is the 8% indicating they will vote KAP. This 8% will be mostly ex LNP (although KAP will win Mt Isa off ALP) and given the optional first preference system, may bleed off enough LNP votes to give one or two LNP seats to the ALP. KAP will win at least four seats.

    The Stalinists are bemoaning Anna’s failure to implement Stalinism. The greentards are crying that with no senate, they get no seats and it isn’t fair. The Maoists are depressed and are bickering with the Trotskyites. The Leninists are declaiming pompously and at very, very, very, very great length about Red Flags and imperialist lickspittle running dog counter-revolutionaries and evil capitalist puppet masters exploiting the working class and other drivel that no-one cares about except other Leninists.

    Apart from your figures being completely untrue, even if $1 billion worth of public money has bought 16 years of top class motorsport, I for one would be happy to trade you a useless desal plant at Tugun for 15 years worth of Brisbane GPs, and I daresay all the business proprietors in the city would as well.

    Nothing makes a left more livid with rage than public money being spent on motorsport instead of art installations. And therefore nothing makes me happier to see large Motorsport events using public money.

    Lemme get this straight, you fat idiot, Jellybelly.

    1. After 20 years of corruption, incompetence and waste, the ALP bankrupts the state and lies about it before the election.

    2. After the election the new government says ‘the swine bankrupted the state and lied to you all about it. Now we have to fix the mess. It’s going to take many years because they screwed you up and squandered the entire mining boom windfall.’

    3. You think that the electorate will promptly return to the corrupt squandermonkeys to power in response.

    Riiiiight.

    I assume you spent your time today huffing bongs?

  62. brc

    A one term government because of economic and fiscal chaos.

    Actually – what’s more likely is that a determined LNP has the mandate to drastically shrink the size of the government to get the debt under control. The luvvies will turn themselves inside out with apopleptic rage the moment the first public service chop comes down the pike.

    Then what happens is that the world doesn’t end when a few government departments are folded, climate change alarmism is defunded at a state level. Then they have the money to drop some punitive and regressive state taxes like stamp duty. And the world still doesn’t end. And then some people find they like having a bit more take-home pay. And the economy improves.

    And then Labor comes back and goes ‘but but but they sacked some teachers and nurses’. And everyone goes ‘yes, but we aren’t going back there’.

    This is an unlikely scenario, because while Campbell Newman is undoubtedly competent, he’s also a wet liberal with a penchant for public spending and luvvie causes. He danced around the question of global warming on the Bolt report this morning – probably smart politics, but if he doesn’t start chopping straight away, we’ll know he’s just as much in love with the idea of taxing the air as the rest of the sorry lot.

    They called the Labor team in 1974 the “cricket team”. I’m predicting an even worse result for Labor and the 2012 team under Bligh will be rechristened the “coxless 8”.

  76. Rutherford B. Hayes Takes Off…

    Obama’s gaffe might have the salutary effect of focusing public attention on worthy figures from American’s past like Rutherford Hayes.

    This is amazing, Obama’s douche-bag speech has lead to Republicans learning more about their history and being proud of it:

    The period of American history that followed the Civil War was one of the greatest and most successful ever experienced by any nation. It was led mostly by Republicans who understood the value of freedom. Consequently, it has been downgraded by left-leaning historians who have portrayed America’s stunning growth and prosperity as a blameworthy “Gilded Age.”

    Our younger readers may not realize that something similar happened much more recently: after the Reagan administration saved the American economy following the debacle of the Carter years, the Democratic Party needed to preserve its viability by undermining the remarkable achievements of the Reagan years. How did they do it? They took a page from history and labeled the 1980s a “Decade of Greed.”

    Bligh has definitely shown who Queenslanders should not vote for, and she’s done it very well. The icing on the cake is the allegations against Newman and his extended family. Not a skerrik of proof, but smear away, ALP. Gutter politics.

    And thanks for the mess you’ll be leaving behind for the LNP to fix. How long will the state have to tighten its collective belt to get the ledger back in order?

    Good riddance, Bligh et. al.

    By my rough back of the fag packet calculations the average Queensland tax payer owes around the average annual wage in combined ALP State and Federal debt per tax payer. I am pretty sure QLD tax payers are the most indebted in the country. Thank God the ALP didn’t waste QLD’s resources boom.

    Thanks ALP.

    Bligh plans to barnstorm 50 seats in 5 days to try and stem the bloodbath.

    She’ll crash and burn, the situation up here is bloody ridiculous.

    And thanks for the mess you’ll be leaving behind for the LNP to fix. How long will the state have to tighten its collective belt to get the ledger back in order?

    And Labor will do what labour governments do everywhere after their irresponsible debt binge has run its course – slink off to the opposition benches and run a hysterical hate campaign against the new government that is trying to get things in order. They do it every time, for instance against Howard in 1996-7, against David Cameron (with the constant background chattering of “Tory cuts, tory cuts”), and they will try it on again with Abbott and Newman.

    I’m quite serious when I say that Labor should not be a legal political party.

  84. Fisky

    And never forget that Labour blamed the London riots on…austerity!

    What filthy, filthy people they are.

  85. How about a modest competence test, Fisky? Like needing a 3 digit IQ or being able to add up 20 2 digit numbers without a calculator?

    WTF is this Pee idiot on about with Batty O Farrell?

    I honestly have no idea what the moron is talking about in that high pitched teenage gal squeal of his.

    I also asked the moron is he’s a Finkelstonion and refused to answer because he is of course and didn’t want to cop a backhander.

    Finkelstonian leftwingers have no legitimacy ever talking about freedoms. None.

  87. I want to know why the Crime and Misconduct Commission can finish an investigation in a couple of weeks when it is taking years to investigate Craig Thomson. It also suggests there isn’t any doubt at all that Newman hasn’t done anything wrong at least regarding the allegations made against him.

    Only four more days until that slanderous slag from Brisbane South is gone.
    I wouldn’t be surprised if Newman does not take the ‘grace in victory’ path …. the toothy trailer-trash Bligh has sailed very close to the legal wind and may have to pay up.
    Remember the crowing in 2007 that ‘Campbell Newman (as Lord Mayor of Brisbane) is the most senior Liberal politician in the country.’
    Well, come Sunday, Clover Moore will be the most senior ALP pollie up and down the East Coast.

  89. Toad of Toad Hall

    Come poll close on Saturday Toad will be firmly ensconced in front of the television with a large box of hand-rolled Havanas ready to watch the train-wreck. The house-boy will be wearing a track into the parquetry between the Kelvinator and the Chesterfield ensuring Toad is awash with Bolly by midnight.
    Pip-pip and toodle-oo to the toothy goose what!

    Leigh, LOL, Clover ain’t ALP, crypto Labor maybe, but not ALP.

    By the way Clover ditching Parlaiment to stay on as Mayor proves that Julius Caesar’s comment is true of all ambitious people when he said: ‘I would rather be first in a village in Gaul than second in Rome.’ or something like that.

    Goodbye Captain Bligh!
