Zed lashes out at the Greens as his no confidence motion goes down

By johnboy 22 August 2012 22

After shutting down the Legislative Assembly for a week the Liberals’ Zed Seselja has had the chance to play the martyr after the Greens, as promised, backed the Chief Minister come hell or high water on the Health Statistics scandal and Zed’s resulting no confidence motion.

Not, it should be noted, before the Chief Minister took the time to blog about how great she is and how nasty Zed is.

Anyway here’s some of Zed’s choicer words:

“The falsification of emergency department records which occurred for at least half the time Katy Gallagher has been Health Minister is without doubt one of the most serious scandals in territory history,” Mr Seselja said.

“It involves not just poor performance, but bullying, systemic failures, fraud, cover ups, conceit and deceit at the highest levels of the management of our most crucial services.

“Katy Gallagher is also responsible for taking the ACT Health system from one of the best performing in the country and turning it into one of the worst.

“Each one of these is grounds enough for serious censure. Taken together, they can only be seen as grounds for no confidence.

“The Westminster system demands that Ministers take responsibility for public service failings. But today the ACT Greens refused to hold Katy Gallagher to the standard demanded by the former ACT Labor Government.

What’s Your opinion?

I think I’ve come to the conclusion that Katy has crossed a bridge too far.

Compared to Carnell, she has been found more morally wrong, in her department manipulating data for financial gain, and the CT revelation that her TCH doctors have not complied with recording directives in over 50% of cases. Carnell understood Ministerial responsibility; Act Labor, from Sonic onwards, has not had the intestinal fortitude to comply with this tenet of Westminster Government.

Zed may well not be the answer, but ACT Labor are not ellectable.

The Greens will only ever back the Labor Party, but they are then as incriminated as the Gov.

Katy never killed any little girls though, let’s just make this clear.

No, but Stanhope and his cronies managed to fry four people in 2003. Let’s just make this absolutely clear as well.

See, low blows are easy.

Geez, I stuffed that up didn’t I?

Idiot…. 🙂
