Snarky Chairman Stanhope puts the boot into the Libs

CityNews are giving a lot of time to the musings of the Chiefly Jon Stanhope.

One intriguing piece features the Chief Minister saying how great it is that he’s finally figured out how to do his job and he doesn’t plan to stop now.

He does seem to be enjoying taunting the Liberals:

Opposition. [Liberal Leader] Mr Seselja continues to present as a leader who clearly doesn’t like to get out of the bed in the morning and come to work. We’ll see soon whether Mr Seselja really has the heart for the fight.”

Not content with stirring the pot just a little he continues, saying he initially thought Opposition health spokesman Jeremy Hanson would succeed Seselja.

“I thought he would be the rising star in opposition, but he’s had a year now to prove himself and he hasn’t. He is described within the Labor caucus, rather generously, as the new Jacqui Burke.”

When does torturing the hapless libs go from hobby to sport?

politics has always been a game of political force em’ backs as soon as jon stuffs up again the libs’ll have their turn for a couple of months, and that’s why we pay taxes, so we can keep them employed while we sit back and laugh during question time.
