Andrew Leigh v. Angry Anderson

By johnboy - 5 October 2011 30

The conservative Quadrant is making merry over comments made by Member for Fraser Andrew Leigh about wrinkly rocker Angry Anderson’s plans to enter politics formally:

Labor MHR Dr Andrew Leigh thinks Anderson’s plan is utter nonsense. Rather than waiting to see if the Nationals would actually accept Anderson as a candidate, Leigh has immediately weighed in with his two cents’ worth on Anderson’s chances.

The article goes on to compare and contrast Dr Leigh’s pointy headedness v. Angry’s working family credentials and finishes with this:

Poor old Angry. It’s a shame, because he’s got the bald head right – but if only he’d written more songs about fashionable minorities and the rape of the environment.

And if only he’d decided to run as a Labor candidate – the PR people would have fallen over themselves to present him as the acceptable face of Labor’s heartland, recaptured by the current regime’s devotion to traditional values and deep-seated love of the working man, tatts and all.

Perhaps even Andrew Leigh might have had a good word for him – after someone explained to him who Rose Tattoo was.

Fair comment? Or “flabby underbelly of snobbery”?

What’s Your opinion?

I think Mr Anderson should stick to what he does well, that is playing loud late 70s Aussie rock.

To be perfectly honest, I don’t think he was particularly good at that either.

He had a few decent tunes.

I can think of 2.

Even a stopped clock gives the right time twice a day.

Agreed. His dabbling in United Nations conspiracy theories has meant I can no longer appreciate Bad Boy for Love – sad days indeed.

At least they inadvertantly concede that the environment is being raped.

As for running in New England, from what I’ve seen of Tony Windsor lately, even “star power” won’t knock him off. Surely he’s a good example of the thinking person’s MP? Spin free, logical, best intentions, pragmatic, not prone to brinkmanship. And those are all traits that rural people value.

IMHO a good role model for anyone ever thinking about putting their hand up.

Hell yes. If only all politicians were like him.

What, like addressing a carbon tax rally bagging out people with agendas and political aspirations and then revealing that he has been shoring up support within the National party? Yes, we should have more people like him.

I think you’re getting mixed up – the above comments were about Tony Windsor – not Angry Anderson, about whom you appear to be commenting?

guilty as charged.

Angry would make a much better PM than Mr Rabbot.

Better than Juliar, too.

Uneducated bogans should never go anywhere near politics or anything that has any bearing on society.
