    Antony Green and ABC (Australia’s Bullshitting Communists) hope like the hounds of hell they are that Christensen does not help to lift the One Nation vote is what they really mean.

    Imagine the grapes of wrath in the UniParty if the entire State of Qld goes PHON and UAP…. the horror.

  2. C.L. says:

    Yeah, I suppose you could argue George’s name on the ballot may have a lift-all-boats effect for One Nation but it doesn’t look good when he’s pocketing a hundred thousand.

  3. NoFixedAddress says:

    How does Antony Green and his ABCommunist mates figure the benefit the UniParty gave to their former minister for “Finance” and the lobbying around the world that was done for him to get the top OECD job?

  4. NoFixedAddress says:


    Get the ABCommunists to show you the law as the way it was reported that law cannot apply to Christensen.

    UniParty politics is what they have published.

    From the ABCommo article,

    “It will mean Mr Christensen will be eligible for a little-known entitlement called the resettlement allowance, which is a one-off payment worth six months’ salary, or in his case about $105,000 a year — money he would not otherwise receive.

    It is for MPs who leave parliament involuntarily, either by losing their seat or their party preselection.”

  5. Tel says:

    It isn’t reasonable to blame Christensen for following the rules, when a rule exists that pays politicians to lose.

    If the ABC was interested in journalism they would do the research and figure out who introduced that rule in the first place, and who else has cashed in over the years. Seems weird they only got interested when it gets used by anyone OTHER than the two major parties.

  6. What Tel said. Well played, Mr. C for creatively taking advantage of the uniparty loophole. I’ll be interested to see how his personal vote also converts to votodollars for ON. It’s $2.91 per eligible first-preference vote this year.

    I’m blaming the system, not (this) player.

  7. C.L. says:

    I dunno, folks.
    As Hadley said tonight, this looks “sus.”

    Ray thinks he should announce he won’t take the $100,000.

    On the separate issue of the ABC highlighting this only because George is on the ‘wrong’ side… of course. That’s what they do. They’re scum.
