Another ACT pollie shunned

Crikey 7 December 2007 12

Liberal Senator Gary Humphries must be eating some cold humble pie today after not receiving a position in the Opposition front bench. Considering there were 45 positions up for grab he must be shattered. Even ‘beehive’ Bronwyn Bishop got a call-up….or call-back in her case.

Only a few days ago Gazza was lambasting the ALP over the discarding of Senator Lundy and demotion of Bob ‘invisible’ McMullan MP.

What is wrong with our local pollies? Aren’t they good enough?

Brendan Nelson: “A Brave Old World”…

Yeah when the media asked him why he decided to run he said he felt his people skills were quite good. Haha.

I like that he said he has ‘good people skills’. HA

There’s the whole Indigenous Affairs shadow portfolio thing as well…

I’m laughing harder at Tony Abbott’s admission that he intends to contest the leadership in the future – as if!

The mad monk for PM, my ar$e.

Am I the only person still laughing that Tony Abbott put his hat in the ring ?

Yep, I’ll go for 18 months as well.

Then Turnbull will make his move.

Just reread your post, sounds like we agree on the life expectancy for the Nelson opposition.

A couple of years? That is generous of you Johnboy, I give him 18 months tops but wouldn’t be surprised if he went down in flames within a year.

Well Gaz will be relieved.

When Brendan gets knocked over in a years time Gaz won’t have been too close to him.

Humphries is part of the old school liberals and Nelson has shown that he wants new blood.

Then again, Bronnie is hardly new blood…
