Jacqui Lambie book: Rebel with a cause

Who would have thought that Jacqui Lambie would write an autobiography (without a ghost writer)? The former soldier and long-term recipient of unemployment benefits who stumbled (illegally as it turned out) into the senate courtesy of Clive Palmer has taken pen to paper to outline her exciting life and principles. Good luck to Jacqui, who is now annoyed that Steve Martin is not going to resign in her favour (he has now been kicked out of the Jacqui Lambie network). I wonder how much Allen & Unwin has paid Jacqui as an advance.

Separately, her former chief of staff, Rob Messenger, is taking action in the Burnie Magistrates Court to stop publication as he claims to have written a manuscript as a ghost writer and claims Lambie has stolen his words.

Perhaps it was the first sentence in the book ‘I woz a soldier’?

    ‘Bogan Without a Clue” would be more accurate

  2. She was a truckie for five years and an elephant tracker for another five.

  3. Shy Ted

    Her spelling is atrocious. It’s rabble not rebel, slapper not soldier, idiot not Lambie, criminal not senator and who cares not beyond.

  4. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    She was a truckie for five years and an elephant tracker for another five.

    Given that she had two children, I’m wondering how long she spent on maternity leave and light duties.

  5. dopey

    Bound to win some award or other.

  6. Marcus

    It looks like Peter Fitzsimons might have some competition.

    Bound to be a copy on Teh Insiders coffee table.

    What was her “cause”?

  9. nemkat

    Why, the greater good of Jacqui Lambie, of course.

  10. Roger

    What was her “cause”?

    I suppose you’ll have to read the book to find out.

    The bogan Lambie is an easy target for criticism, but we have many time-servers in the senate who may be better educated but have neither the gumption nor the guts to say what she said several times on a) Muslim immigration and b) Muslim terrorism, namely a) stop it and b) deport them or charge them with treason according to their citizenship status.

  11. Jackie is having delusions of competence

    Something tells me you will be none the wiser after reading it.

  13. caveman

    Should have called the book ” Hung Well” and offered it in some sort of package.

  14. Robbo

    Another rewriting of history no doubt coupled with big doses of fiction. Lambic is a dill and it is only in Tasmania that someone so thick and crass could get elected to the Senate.

  15. Tel

    What was her “cause”?

    Cause why not?

  16. a happy little debunker

    She tried to force her selected senate replacement to stand aside so she could resume her ‘job’.

    She didn’t succeed, so she expelled him from the party.

    Trouble is the $1million, he’ll now earn, means the party has moved on from her place to his place.
    Bwahahahahahaha!

  17. DM OF WA

    How someone as unsuitable as Lambie could ever been recruited into the army let alone get elected to parliament is both a wonder and a disgrace.

  18. Roberto

    It is only in Tasmania that someone so thick and crass could get elected to the Senate.

    Would that it were true! Plenty of non-Tasmanian senators could challenge her in the thickness/crassness stakes.

    Does she have a Chapter on Barndoor?

  20. nemkat

    There you go.
    If the publishers had held back another week, they could have added another chapter, and sold 50,000 copies.

    No way. Jaqui Lambie is hands-down winner for the most stupid person elected to office in living memory. She may not be the most evil or the most dangerous but in the low IQ stakes she is tops.

  22. DM OF WA

    And I have a question. Do you need to pass an IQ test to get into the Australian army? And is it the same test for males and females?

  23. Des Deskperson

    ‘And I have a question. Do you need to pass an IQ test to get into the Australian army? And is it the same test for males and females?’

    My understanding is that there is at least an aptitude test and a psyche test. I’ve no idea whether these measure IQ, but i assume that the tests are the same for all genders.

    he APS used to have an entry test that measured literacy, numeracy, cognative ability and general knowledge. There was an entire section in the old Public Service Commission dedicated to developing and trialling these tests.

    The entry tests were abolished by Dr ‘Shitshark’ Shergold.

  24. Empire GTHO Phase III

    How someone as unsuitable as Lambie could ever been recruited into the army let alone get elected to parliament is both a wonder and a disgrace.

    Really? Have you been paying attention? Is this just a cheap shot at a main-chancing incompetent bogan?

    Malcolm Macgregor persuaded the Chief of Army to accept that he was now a she. A warrior cut his cock off and continued to serve. Ponder that.

    Richo was paid to be a Senator in the Australian Parliament for eleven years. The Persian Dwarf continued to draw a salary for four months after being exposed as a traitor.

    There have been and continue to be far greater abuses of public trust than “Gimme a John Holmes Old Fella Jack-Jack”.

    A little perspective, please.

    True.

    I regard Lambie as the stopped clock of parliament. She was right a couple of times and I applaud her stance on Muslims.

    The highlight of her career was when she was set up on Q and A to be humiliated by Yassmin Abdel Magied. Jacqui – Jackie gave it to her with both barrels and beclowned the stupid bint. Magied has never recovered.

    Other than that Lambie had no principals or consistency. She was a member of the Palmer United Party for fuck’s sake.

  26. Chris M

    So she served under Lucy?

    Dad’s Army?

  27. Chris M

    Haha maybe that was a bit harsh on Jacqui…. but I understand she wasn’t an actual Senator legally?

  28. 11 years in the Army and she achieved the rank of corporal. In supply. (wiki) She was not the gun shearer in the shed.

    Some of her random ideas made sense, but since she was spraying in every direction she was bound to hit something sometimes.

    Putting her in a leadership position was always a grotesque joke.

  29. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    11 years in the Army and she achieved the rank of corporal. In supply. (wiki) She was not the gun shearer in the shed.

    Lambie transferred to the Military Police. Promotion to the rank of corporal is automatic there, to give you the authority to order the unwashed soldiery about, but it’s very slow after that. Her job in the Military Police was “Traffic control” – she wore the reflective gauntlets, and made sure all the trucks in the convoy went the same way. It’s not rocket science.

  30. Rebel with cause

    I’m gona prove youse all wrong

  31. nemkat

    She led Palmer up the garden path-he is an Open Borders guy, and she reckons filling the Country with Muslims may not be a long term success.
    He had the money, but no Candidates with any profile, Lambie and Glenn Lazarus had the profile.
    Palmer looks like he may be back in the big time, maybe Jacqui and The Brick should have stuck with him.

  32. kc

    Somewhat misdirected effort in terms of target market. The bogans that vote for her dont actually read books.

  33. BorisG

    The bogans that vote for her dont actually read books.

    I think she has established a solid public profile. Hence the book will be widely read and will both broaden her appeal (if only through enhanced publicity) and earn her a few bucks. It is win-win.

  34. Lambie transferred to the Military Police. Promotion to the rank of corporal is automatic there, to give you the authority to order the unwashed soldiery about, but it’s very slow after that.

    She got two stripes for long attendance, and the authority went to her head. She makes Pauline Hanson look like an urbane intellectual.

  35. candy

    Her day is done, I think.

    She abused Tony Abbott and called his daughters prostitutes on the campaign trail to help their father get elected. She also divulged her son’s ice addiction to the parliament without his knowledge, simply to keep the attention on herself, I think. And then became proudly Aboriginal for some reason.

    I’m not feeling sentimental about her. I hope she has good financial advice for the future. That’s important.

  36. kc

    Totally off topic but the scroll along the bottom of ALPBC news 24 says ” Tony Abbott loses vote for more conservative control of the liberal party” FMD can these pricks be any more fucked in the head with Abbott 666 biase? And “on topic” Boris, the bargain bin will ultimately tell the story. One of us will be right and one of us dead wrong.

  37. H B Bear

    I really liked Steve Martin in LA Story.

  38. Pedro the Ignorant

    I have to admit that I rather like Jacquie, despite her erratic and confusing politics.

    A rough diamond in a sea of the beige wearing poodlefakers with bums on the red leather.

    Always made me smile to hear the howls of outrage from the watermelons whenever she commented on open borders and moslem immigration.

    I will miss her antics.

    She was great on quite a few issues and very unsound on quite a few others.

    She was one of our better Senators which is like being one of our less diseased whores.

    Liberal senators in particular, except Jim Molan, are a waste of space. Once they are in you never hear a word from them, not that you heard a word from them before. For a few elections now I have been voting below the line for the Senate just so I will not be responsible for the well paid seat warmers.

    In the last election I put Jim Molan first so was happy last week that finally my choice was validated.

    I am inclined to the view that this book will join the ranks of “bought but not read.” She will be in the uncomfortable company of Marx (Capital), Darwin (Origin of Species) and Keynes (General Theory). Yes, there will be publicity and some bucks, but thereafter she will join the grand forgettory of authors in obscurity.

  46. nemkat

    There’s likely to be an Election this year with 6 Senate Seats in Tassie up for grabs.
    Lambie is sure to be the only anti Muslim immigration candidate, so providing she can find a funder, she’ll be back in Canberra on July 1.

  47. Crossie

    There’s likely to be an Election this year

    Not likely. Malcolm is in a less precarious position than he has been for the past two years so he will go full term. He will lose the next election without question so there is no gain in going early.

    Seconded. I like her too. Have thought she was good value from the time she was elected. Hope she is back in the Senate soon.

  49. struth

    When it comes to Jackie Lambie, the old saying ‘Tis better to remain silent (like all the other tax hoovers in parliament), than to open your mouth and remove all doubt, always springs to mind.

    The others are just as loony. just shit scared of being found out.

    U elitist bastards

    ..
    Exactically.

  52. The Mongrel

    Corrected title for Lambie’s book:

    Rebel Without a Clue

    If Lambie were clever she would let her replacement stay and run for election next time. That way sh’d be a good chance of having two Senators elected using the notoriety of her name.

    Instead she kicks him out of the “Party” (such as it is).

    When I say “If Lambie were clever” I’m answering my own statement.

  53. nemkat

    That strategy may have worked, since her replacement is a six year Senator, and there must be a Half Senate Election by June 30 2019.
    The problem was that she got greedy, and pressured him to quit in her favour [or maybe he made a verbal agreement and reneged].
    He’s now sitting as an Independent, and has fired all her staff.
    Unless she can find another Clive Palmer to fund her, she’s gonna battle.

  54. kae

    Some think she’s a hero.

    She thinks she’s some kind of crusader for …

    A book, really? She can write?

  55. kae

    “Haha maybe that was a bit harsh on Jacqui…. but I understand she wasn’t an actual Senator legally?”

    She collected remuneration for it, and had decision to make there.
