Feel the Stanhope Spin!

By johnboy - 19 October 2006 39

Our Brave Leader has announced that the run to the election is on and he would like you to forget all the bad stuff of the last couple of years and, rather, enjoy the show as his government jumps through hoops like a pack of performing seals for your amusement.

Ok, he didn’t actually say that. Try this:

“At the half-way point of the parliamentary term, an energised Government was looking forward to a period of heightened activity and achievement, Chief Minister Jon Stanhope said today. Among the highlights of the remainder of this parliamentary term would be the Government’s responses to a high-level inquiry into affordable housing options and the new Skills Commission, an unprecedented capital investment in public education, continued investment in the security of the Territory’s water supply, the completion of some significant infrastructure projects and the election of a representative Indigenous body.

Anyone want to de-spin that?

What’s Your opinion?

what we need is a cross bench full diligent indies directly answerable to their electorates.

Maybe so, but blatent morons versus total incompetents?

Can we afford another 6 years of Stanhope and his scorched earth policy?

the alternatives are worse. blatant morons.

Having moved here recently, I am amazed at how arrogant and dismissive Stanhope is whenever he is interviewed. He is downright rude to some radion callers.
He seems to have the attitude that, ‘he knows best’, and that no one should dare criticize him!
Man is he on a losing streak now!

So tell me, who’s the alternative?

Never forget the bad stuff.

‘If you’re going to blame anyone then blame me’ (circa Jan 2003)

I sincerely hope that the local electorate remembers the above, and the accompanying lies and memory losses of he and his staff, when the next election rolls around.

Absolute fecking bollocks.

That’s all I can really manage at the moment.

Only half way? That gives him another half a term to find innovative ways to tax us in ways we have never been taxed before!
