Karin McDonald to stand down

Gungahlin Al 23 January 2008 41

ABC is reporting that ALP MLA in Brindabella Karin McDonald won’t contest the next ACT election in October.

Also, ALP preselections open next month.

Apparently she hs an “exclusive” interview in the City News due out today about it all…

How much unfunded superannuation will this nonentity entitle herself to?

btw, CC’s not fat pandy, quite skinny infact. I’d compare her to a rake but it wins on intelligence.

Crazy Chester has nailed it – “…I admit calling them “whores” … a definite insult to workers in the sex industry.”

Exactly, If you paid money to a hooker you expect to see a result – but with Ms McDonald we got what exactly – seven years of … anyone, anyone, anyone, Bueller?

EMD – apart from boring trivia like geography and constitutional issues, why don’t we feel free to hitch the ACT’s wagons to whichever national or regional star seems sanest at the time. The Vics – no real problems, if you like constipated AFL goths. NSW – a sewer full of morons. Tassie – we’d lose on the headcount. Queensland – a banjo for every child. SA – vhildren? where are they? WA – they might as well be OS anyway.

I think I would prefer that we become an outpost of Victoria than suffer either the ALP or Liberal offerings for self-government.

If we did become an outpost of Victoria, could we get some more Fitzroy-style cafes? And maybe a more creative local arts scene, and improved chance of attracting big-name touring bands?

Chester – what is RFLMAO ?

Chester how do you as a 46yo nude life model look? Fat perchance?

Chester – there are things people might think, but probably shouldn’t say and I think you’ve said some of them. Can I assume you have a therapist? If so, you should tell him or her what you have been saying on this thread (and perhaps others) because it might be important in some way.

Well all I can to that is “Chester’s back”…

Well I’ve now been referred to the Domestic Violence Crisis Service by an ACT Government agency and they’re offering to assist me with intimidation by the ACT Government.


There’s one person here with a very small penis complex. His name is Jon Stanhope. Everybody who buys into his BS is, in my books a whore, because they’ve sold their soul to the devil.

The Devil is Jon Stanhope.

The dude is a sick, twisted, f*ck. Come to terms with it people.

I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again. My politics is far left. Stanhope and Co. are as crooked as all get out. Wake the f*ck up people. Jesus Christ, Canberrans are an embarrassment. Look at the Thwara Bridge debacle.

Just how much BS will you people swallow?

It might have somthing to do with the fact thar Zed’s restructuring his ministry-in-waiting and Standope’s left with the task of which side of the Titanic to set the deck-chairs up on.

The labor kiddies are a bit testy today aren’t they?

They’ll find another Labor poof to keep the seat warm – It’ll be some back room hack with the personality of a pot plant and the charisma of syphillus. I speak the truth.

(Hope that appeases the masses) 🙂

Ingeegoodbee Ingeegoodbee 11:22 am 24 Jan 08

Whatever. Dosn’t change the fact that I’m right does it.

They’ll find another Labor whore to keep the seat warm – It’ll be some back room hack with the personality of a door-bitch and the charisma of tinea. I speak the truth.

nice phrase, you misogynistic turd.
