Hargreaves fails to support Stanhope as much as he can (sort of)

By 20 February 2007 21

The West Australian (of all places) is talking up the no-confidence motion in Our Brave Leader.

They note the sheep of the Labor caucus are unlikely to exercise any judgment (other than to toe the line like they’ve been told to).

There is, however, an interesting quote from John Hargreaves:

He has had my 150 per cent support since 1998 and he will have it for as long as he remains in this assembly, in any capacity he chooses,” Mr Hargreaves told reporters.

“He has my unqualified support. I think he is the best leader this assembly has had since self-government.”

Only 150%? I mean if we’re heading into the territory of imaginary numbers surely he could go with the playground tested ∞+1 ?

Don’t they have to support him – I mean they were all around in the lead up to the fires, and none of them were running around warning people, or raising the alarm.

Actually – same can be said for big Bill Stefaniak. If he would have warned everyone – then why didn’t he????

The arrogance of Hargreaves knows no bounds. Did you see him on the 6.00pm WIN News on 20 February? And what about Deb Foskey on the 7.00pm news of the same evening. Doesn’t seem any doubt that she won’t support the motion. Lots of blood on the Green’s hands, especially in relation to fuel loads and fire trail maintenance.

Looks like the West Australian is also mathematically challenged. 10+7+1 is a number greater than the number of MLAs we are compelled to elect.

Whole thing is a farce. What’s the odds that if the motion were carried Stanhope would still refuse to step down – yes he is that arrogant!!!

Off topic, I call on all bears to comment on this thread. No sensible reason, I’d just like to see how many bears we have around the place.

I saw Hargraves stagger on stage at the multicultural festival on Saturday. He blabbered something about clubs, shot his fist into the air and then practically fell off the stage.

Must have been doing his Hitler impersonation again.

maybe Hargreaves should support him 92%, the same as the pokies pay out

Surely the schoolyard variant is actually infinity to the power of one – or was I hanging out with the math kids too much, thereby acquiring a dorkier variant?

(and I qualify as a bear, albiet in the coloquial sense of “fat hairy guy” rather than “have the word bear in my nickname”

Foskey stated that she is still considering the motion.

Like, what is there to consider? The coroner plainly pointed out that the ACT Government was at fault.

Simple really.

However, we have a majority government and a flock of sheep as MLAs.

Sorry, forgot to add that Hargreaves is an utter tool.

Bear is gay slang for fat hairy gay man – don’t ask questions – I just know so :)

To that end I am not a bear (insert seinfeld quote here) – Not that there is anything wrong with that

Sounds like the expert mathematical analysis the ACT Labor Party use to interpret their budgets.

Everyone knows the ultimate number in the playground is ∞ + ∞.

∞^∞

Beat that.

Hargreaves is such a toady and Corbell is Stanhope clone (see his performance after Stanhope said the Coroner was plain wrong). What kind of voters have we got in this shire council who put up with all the stuff-ups, wasted money, ridiculous spending proposals and crumbling local infrastructure and amenities?

Isn’t the phrase ‘he has my unqualified support’ code for ‘I am about to stab you in the back’?
