Stanhope Socceroo Dummy Spit

By johnboy 17 November 2005 9

I have to say I was a little suprised to see a media release form the Chief Minister congratulating the Soccerroos on qualifying for the world cup.

As a rule unless the sport involves one legged lesbians or gay whales he’s not known for his keeness. (The Raider’s proletarian nature possibly explains their appeal to him).


The PM’s underhanded IR tactics have already been discussed.

What’s Your opinion?

Every year Mr Stanhope sheds his hair, akin to a snake shedding his skin. The pelt comes off all at once to reveal a new shiny head of hair, which, after drying out, will puff up to normal hoff sizes. The old hair is discarded and dries up. It will then blow away on the next mild zephyr and end up rolling around the ACT as a tumbleweed. hoff-hair makes up 57% of tumbleweeds in Canberra and the region…or so I’m told.

Yeah Indi, those were the days….

i blame Keating for making it all serious…

Indi 12:23 pm 18 Nov 05

Can anyone confirm – I wasn’t aware that Mr Stanhope is now also the Minister for Sportsy and IR!

Indi 12:20 pm 18 Nov 05

There was a time when we were entertained by true Labor leaders, before Paul Keating.

I recall when the Silver Budgie revived the great tradition that Menzies launched whereby the Prime Minister would select a team of up and coming whipper snappers to take on the touring team in the spirit of allowing younger cricketers match up against internationals.

It was this same PM (Hawke) who said (something to the effect)after our win in the America’s Cup: “anyone who sacks their workers for not turning up today is a bum!”

There’s just no more humour left…

I loved that release – had a good chuckle.

But Evil, “he’s always after a chance to score political points”?!? You say it like he’s the only politician to do so . . .

only in the ACT can someone with their head simultaneously in the clouds and up their own arse flourish as he has…

Mr Evil 8:23 am 18 Nov 05

Well, I suppose we shouldn’t expect too much from Comrade Sonic; he’s always after a chance to score political points, especially now that Howard’s kicked him out of the sandpit.

Thumper 8:16 am 18 Nov 05

What the fuck is he on about?

Is this the most juvenile press release he has put out?

Yesterday I was congratulating him on his stance on the gaol and now he comes up with this?

Go back to your ivory tower Mr Stanhope. This is not governing, this is just purile adolescent behaviour.

I would say that I cannot believe that a CM would put out such a press release, except that it happens more often than not.
