Avani Terraces - Greenway
Life is looking up

If not for the perfidious Greens the Liberals would lower the cost of living

By johnboy - 13 May 2011 26

The Liberals Brendan Smyth is furious with the Greens for greenlighting the Ascension of Katy Gallagher to the Stanhopian throne:

“This is simply the latest action taken by a Greens Party that makes a lie of their so called ‘third party insurance.’ They are the far left branch of the Labor Party, no matter how little the Labor Party delivers.

“There is only one Party in the ACT that stands as an alternative to another decade of ACT Labor and increased cost of living and that is the Canberra Liberals,” said Mr Smyth.

So no preference deal then?

What’s Your opinion?

Redundancy should be seen as a wonderful opportunity!

Also Brendan while you are becoming the saviour of the ACT, please explain why your Federal Colleagues (Shadow Treasurer Joe Hockey) are calling for 1200 jobs to go from the APS? That’ll do wonders for the ACT Economy

12,000 redundancy cheques being spent and a chunk of them starting new businesses? I reckon that would do some wonders.

Johnboy do you honestly believe that 12,000 redundant APS staffers would have the ability to set up their own business?? Oh hang on, the redudancies always got to those who are quite capable of getting on with their lives while those in the APS tat really should go stay behind to ‘carry on’.

You really think that 12,000 people losing their jobs would be good for the local economy? How many of those people do you really think would start up successful new businesses?

…and then the 12,000 jobs get replaced by consultants charging double an ordinary wage.

But never taking holidays!

Or sick leave, or Long Service Leave, or Materity Leave………………………and so it goes.

Ooohhhh, let me guess.

Is it the Dragway party? The Dragway bumper stickers from various previous elections have more public presence in Canberra then the Liberal party does.

Ha +1 BTW where have you been Brendan, hardly a whimper form you for months now you come bursting back to the fore??

I’m sure the Greens would be happy to move into government or opposition and leave the Liberals as the ACT’s third party balance of power instead…

I thought The Greens already ran the government in the ACT and federally.

You should read a note of incredulity there.

Seconded!
