Extra days on the calendar for the 1%?

By 20 March 2013 4

The Canberra Times has an intriguing piece on the continuing warfare between the zeddites and the pogos for the soul of the Liberal Party in Canberra.

Madame Reid has finally succeeded in registering as a voting member.

But so too has the Great and Powerful Bob Winnell on a date which suggests the world is rather more interesting that we might have guessed:

The exclusion of party elders like Mrs Reid and property magnate and heavyweight fundraiser Bob Winnel, as well as hundreds of grassroots members, from the initial contest angered many of the Liberals faithful.

Mr Winnel, local party’s greatest fund-raiser managed to register as a preselector on February 31 on his fourth attempt.

The Libs are as rooted at the ACT level as Labor are at the Federal Level, the State Level and the local government level. Tragically and astoundingly, it appears that the Libs are not rooted at the Federal level even though they should be, because they have one of the dimmest bulbs ever to wear a suit running their circus.

A pox on all their houses. Seriously. They are not worthy. None of them.

Yep, dead right, LSWCHP. Churchill said “Democracy is the worst form of government except all the others that have been tried”, but looking around at the various governments in Australia (NSW, past and present, Queensland, also past and present, and the ACT Keystone Cops (both sides), I despair.

Federally, it’s even worse, a shambles all round.

So agreed, a pox on all their houses. Maybe we need a benevolent dictatorship. Whacha doing for the next few years, JB?

Yes, but he’s running against one of the worst PMs we’ve ever had, so he’s got that working in his favour. He wouldn’t stand much of a chance any other time.
