Embarrassed Matt

I don’t think having candidates that want to spruik the politics of division is in the interests of the party or in the interests of those particular candidates. We need to have strong systems and processes to make sure that we can properly vet candidates before they get into the system, let alone embarrass the party in the middle of an election campaign.”

    Who might have thought that ignoring the branches and hand picking a candidate would cause so many problems? I agree with Matt, get rid of them including his mate Zimmerman who didn’t want to face preselection because he knows the members in his electorate are sick of him dividing his own party.

    Bloody oath. No bald men with tits for a start.

    I can’t think of a more divisive person in the Liberal Party than this dickhead.

    Latest Newspoll 53:47. All the votes have bled on the right. PM and his cronies smugly assuming these votes are coming back to them. Dream on ScoMo. LNP about to get its ass handed to it and they can’t even see it. Albanese, who I once knew quite well, is a very decent bloke.

  8. Jay says:

    Whatever their position, this is an engaging article if people missed it.

    How embarrassmatt!

  10. Lee says:

    Notice how the biggest critics of Deves in the Liberal Party and calling for her disendorsement are all men?
    Although I use the term “men” very advisedly for misogynists like Kean and Zimmerman.
    What happened to the calls for “getting more women into the LNP”?

    Bow, ye heathen, to the Transit Authority.

    “Albanese, who I once knew quite well, is a very decent bloke.”

    LOL.

    Is this the same Albanese who’s spent decades proudly claiming that he “fights Tories”?

    Is this the same Albanese who, when in London, loves to catch up for tea and scones with a racist, a racist that he’s proud to call a friend?

    Is this the same Albanese who, only a few years ago, was filmed in federal parliament screeching and screaming “smash her, smash her”…when a government Liberal female MP was talking.

    Sure he’s “a very decent bloke” and I’m the man in the moon.

    That’d be that well-known anti-Semite, Jeremy Corbyn, I presume?

    I can only imagine the meltdown if any conservative said that of a Labor or Green MP.
    In fact it could well mean the end of his or her career.
    Don’t forget, Tony Abbott was slammed as a “misogynist” for merely looking at his watch while Gillard was droning on, and branded as “creepy” for holding his daughter’s hand on the campaign trail years ago.

    I think we will see Albo’s true self come out if he becomes PM, and I don’t think it will be pretty or admirable.

    “That’d be that well-known anti-Semite, Jeremy Corbyn, I presume?”

    Yes.

    “I think we will see Albo’s true self come out if he becomes PM, and I don’t think it will be pretty or admirable.”

    Yes.

    No, not engaging. The whole piece is a simplistic and turgid promotion for Albanese.

  16. Cassie of Sydney says:

    I don’t find catching up with proud anti-Semite “decent”.

    At least their adults, the whole world knows about Happy Clappers.

    “At least their adults”

    I presume you mean “they’re”. So what are you implying about Scott Morrison? He attends an Evangelical Church, not my cup of tea, but so what. But you know what, I strongly suspect that Morrison has never had a Thai massage in his life and he doesn’t hobnob with racists.

    I think we will see Albo’s true self come out if he becomes PM, and I don’t think it will be pretty or admirable.

    The only hope for ScoMo is if somehow he can magically encourage Albo’s true self to come out in the next few weeks … figure out a way to put him on the spot and get him to answer a few pertinent questions.

    I can’t imagine it will be easy, because if there’s one thing Albo is very clear about … it’s that he knows he has zero hope in any head-to-head debate or on any serious public platform … he will avoid such things and go for the cheapest of cheap shots, which is where he is right at home.

    Sure he’s “a very decent bloke” and I’m the man in the moon.

    The word “decent” means whatever anyone wants it to mean, making it a very handy word. It’s a word like “stakeholder” which sounds nice, but strangely never means that I get to keep what I’ve worked for … the “stakeholder” generally turns out to be some other guy, some other place, as represented by some self-appointed bigwig who tells us how to think … because “stakeholder” of course. Words like “inclusive” and “sustainable” and “equity” all end up going down the same path … not stuff you are allowed an opinion about … not for definition … not for discussion … they all really mean “We Say So!”

  21. Lee says:

    I remember some years ago one of my sisters-in-law mentioning that she had met some of the Greens pollies in Canberra, and that they were “decent” people, as opposed to the “nasty” Tony Abbott and Bill Shorten (not that she had actually met the latter two, which she hadn’t).
    They may well have been decent to her personally (naturally, because they and my s-i-l – a Greens supporter – all see eye to eye on everything), but from what I have seen of them and read about them over the years, they are anything but decent.
    Instead they are varying degrees of nastiness and spite, with virtually zero knowledge of business, government, the economy, and how to actually run a country.
    They couldn’t organise a booze-up in a brewery.

    Speaking of divisive and embarrassing candidates. At the critical moment, on the eve of some potential success, Hanson deliberately goes and wrecks One Nation and the right”s chances of becoming a force in parliament, again:

    One Nation was proud this week to announce our Queensland Senate team for this federal election will be One Nation leader Senator Pauline Hanson, Raj Guruswamy, and George Christensen!

    You have got to be joking.

    Raj has over 2 decades of Australian work experience.Prior to joining Adani, he has worked with Aurizon focussing on developing the rail business for the Galilee Basin and led the early negotiations between GVK and Aurizon. He has also successfully established businesses of Linfox and Toll Group in South-east Asian countries including Thailand, Vietnam, Singapore, Sri Lanka, Laos and India. Raj has a Mechanical Engineering degree from Annamalai University, India and an MBA from UTS, Sydney. He is also a Councillor for the Australian Institute of International Affairs in Brisbane.

    In clown world an indian globalist executive who sits on deep state US funded think tanks is now suddenly the #2 QLD senate candidate for supposedly Australian working class One Nation.

    Surprise!

    Absolute clown world don’t quit and One Nation became a proper controlled opposition party in late 1996. Blink three times if you’re being held hostage Pauline!

  23. C.L. says:

    Pauline struggled in the Mavericks Debate.
    Really sour, threatened and off her tucker.

    You have to remind yourself that there is much grift involved in the minor-ing racket in Canberra. Take Bob Katter. He’s been on the government payroll since 1974.

    48 years.

  24. twostix says:

    Also same week, One Nation cancelled anti-lockdown activist Rebecca Lloyd because the AEC / media rolled out the old “Media dobs -> AEC says it will investigate -> Media reports ‘under investigation'” schtik on her.

    So in one week we have a normal, mild, australian anti-lockdown pro-freedom One Nation candidate rudely disendorsed , and an India Adani Exec / Deep State globalist elevated to #2 on the senate ticket.

    Go, go ASIONation!

  25. twostix says:

    I’m not without sympathy for Hanson.

    When they roll out the sort of deep state apparatus artillery that they have against her over the years, I mean, who would know which way is up? She wants to keep her job, but I think she does have loyalty to her roots and would love to sort things out. But just imagine it, this stuff it’s not like she can ask a colleague for advice it “Hey Abbott, ASIO have allowed Saudi Arabia’s state media to do a sting operation on us right before the 2019 election involving the NRA – probably with US State Dept help, any advice?”

    “Sure Hanson…I’ll ring my mates at the AEC again to make sure your candidates are all following the rules that nobody else does”.

  26. C.L. says:

    She lost a lot of people biting that woman’s head off last night; the one who asked why the Mavs hadn’t persisted with the Kitching issue. Hanson took it as some sort of personal insult and launched into her like a maniac.

  27. Cassie of Sydney says:

    “I’m not without sympathy for Hanson.”

    I have a lot of sympathy for her. I like her.
