ACT Libs indulge in ‘swine-like behaviour’

Ari 23 November 2007 17

Anyone who watched the PM’s speech at the National Press Club yesterday would have noticed the bizarre cheer squad who acted like they were at a rock concert.

They also thought it was good form to loudly heckle the journalists for asking questions about Jihad Jackie Kelly’s stunt.

It didn’t seem to occur to them that they were at the … National … Press … Club … and that interrupting the journos going about their business was not exactly good form.

The SMH encapsulated their behaviour (scroll to bottom item) with the words: “Their swine-like behaviour astonished even the most hardened journalists.”

So step on down Bill Stefaniak, Jacqui Burke and friends … you are officially among the geese of this campaign.

I was amazed at the number of people lined up to vote who didn’t even know what electorate they were in.

Post election comment: Who ever the f-ck they were. They are no a bunch official retards. But commenting on such behavior pre-election: it’s just not on. But the Liberals did a lot of dodgey sh-t. Take a look at the seat of Lyndsay.

In any case. The dodgey f-ckers got booted out. And rightly so.

Nah barney, there’s still a heap of Qantas and Telstra they can use to prop up the budget surplus stand for another election term.

Get some balance by reading the canberra times.

90% anti-liberal, pro-labor spin on stories, including front page articles.

95% anti-liberal, pro-labor letters published.

99% anti-liberal, pro-labor editorial comment.

And they reckon that 89.7% of statistics are made up on the spot….

It was televised, so you could make your own mind up. It was definitely wierd – there isn’t normally much cheering and heckling at a press club speech.

I guess Stefaniak and co haven’t been to many.

No Mael, I’m talking gay carlton – not the real guzzling stuff.

BT are you talking about Carlton Cold or Carlton Ice ?

There’s also an email going around at the moment of a bear shitting in the woods…

“Their swine-like behaviour astonished even the most hardened journalists.”

Which side of the double standard astonished them??? Poor delicate genius’s at work – fair dinkum

With the possible exception of Chis Ulhmann (who is showing he exceptional talent as an interviewer throughout this campaign) – the media has not applied the blow torch in any shape or for to the labor / green side of politics.

They have on mass gone the lazy option of quizzing the incumbants – because there is a record of behaviour.

WHo is asking the question of why labor waited for the last day of the campaign to annouce their “hard line on boatpeople”?

The day the smh can be regarded as an unbiased commentary is the day I’ll become a carlton supporter. Thinking hell and freezing and stuff.

I thought the swine behaved in a fowl manner.
