Life is looking up

The future arrives at 3pm

By johnboy - 7 September 2010 80

We hear the press conference has been set for 3pm when we find out which major party’s been able to lube themselves up enough to offer a pleasing sensation to the rural independents.

As Canberra’s public servants hold their breath we’ll let you know when it comes through.

UPDATE: 13:37 Bob Katter announces for the Liberals. (other independents not yet announced, Oakeshott scheduled for 3pm)

Further Update: 15:07 Tony Windsor for Labor.

And the winner is: Oakeshott backs, well he goes on and on, but he’s talking about Government so let’s call it for Gillard at 15:27.

15:31 It’s official Gillard to remain PM.

What’s Your opinion?

People seem to forget that the Governor-General needs to swear in a stable government, if she applies the constitution correctly she should be rejecting the proposed majority on the basis of a 1 seat majority using 3 independents is not stable.

There will be a change in government or a new election within a year.

Exactly! I hope there will be another election. GG should have intervened before this and called one anyway – the whole thing is a farce.

I am so surprised at the result when Catch the Fire ministries put in so much effort.

This is going to be good. I’m going to get a six pack and some corn chips and enjoy watching the dummy spits!

a timely reminder of our good friend Danny’s prophetic dream:

http://catchthefire.com.au/blog/2010/08/31/pr-daniels-dream-of-ms-gillard-conceeding-defeat-glorious-weekend-in-canberra/

5) Last Friday 27th Aug 2010 in Canberra he had a dream of Julia Gillard giving her final speech as PM, conceding defeat, and then he heard the words ‘it is finished’. On Saturday and Sunday at the services in Canberra Pr Daniel shared his dream with the congregation and prayed for the new government.

Well, at least until the next byelection or until her Governance fails on its own.

So, immediate health checks and driver-safety courses, with ongoing dietary cholesterol management by Party staffers for all serving Labor MPs?

I think it was ironic that these were two of the people who pushed so strongly for a 4 minute limit on answers in question time.

IMO all three (including Katter) spoke particularly well in justifying their decisions – a refreshing lack of bullshit.

It will be interesting to see how it all pans out.

I think those speaches went for longer than the entire campaign.

Nice one Johnboy, very hot how you were the first to call it! Weilding your power like the BobKat.
