    True. I would also add that no one should listen to Bronwyn Bishop, whose ambition always exceeded her ambition.

    Can these people stop being so lame for even one single day?

  3. Cassie of Sydney says:

    If the referendum goes down (and I pray it does), it will be solely due to Senator Jacinta Price, Warren Mundine and Advance Australia. They are the ones who’ve spearheaded this fight.

  4. Megan says:

    Totally agree with you, Cassie. And they’ve gone up against virtually everybody else, political, economic, corporate, with triple the money to throw at it.

    I no longer have any trust that it will be a fair and honest outcome though. All those backers of a racist constitution won’t consider they could lose.

  5. C.L. says:


    But let’s allow JNP to learn the parliamentary ropes, identify with some other causes, bide her time and then move to the lower house.

    The right has a track record of loading expectations on an individual because he or she has impressed in one arena – and then being disappointed. A prime minister has to be across a lot of policy areas and make unpopular compromises on some of them.

    Back off, Bron. Jacinta is a keeper.

  6. Buccaneer says:

    A move to the lower house in NT is not for the faint hearted, let her win this and get some local wins for the communities there. She will need lots of disparate communities on board to consistently win her seat. I’d vote for her as leader, when she is ready. That means ensuring she across factional supports required as well. There is no point her having 12 months as leader only to be rolled by a factional hack like Trumble.

  7. Cassie of Sydney says:

    Two weeks ago, Senator Jacinta Price addressed the NPC, and she, her full blood Aboriginal mother, her father, her husband, her extended family, her supporters, her fellow Liberal and National members, were tightly squeezed in a smaller than usual room, a la Rosa Parks travelling through Alabama in mid 1950, and a la Hattie McDaniel at the Academy Awards in 1940. Tim Blair wrote an editorial where he described how Price began her speech with one knockout delivery, in which she pulled no punches and it tells you everything you need to know about this truly exceptional woman…..

    ‘Jacinta Price offered a friendly rejoinder to master of ceremonies Crowe’s introduction…

    “Just a correction. Colin is my husband, not my partner. Just for the record.”

    Right there is one of the most potent declarations of values you’ll see, and it took just 14 simple words.

    Yes. What a woman. More please.

    As I’ve written elsewhere, we have a very clear and stark choice in two weeks, we can either choose the the Marcia Langton road or the Jacinta Price road.

    I choose the Jacinta Price road.

    If she is as smart as what many think she is then there is no way that she would even consider becoming the supposed leader of the so called liberal party of Australia.

    what Cassie of Sydney says: 29 September, 2023 at 2:01 pm

  10. Wally Dali says:

    Don’t need to be an MP to be a PM, it’s only a convention which has grown out of a coincidence. Maybe Price could break the mould.

  11. Buccaneer says:

    From memory, it took John Howard 3 election cycles to garner some control over the factional landscape of the liberal party. Which he kind of squandered by not pushing out termites like Trumble when he had the chance. Just becoming the leader without sorting out the dross behind the scenes will end up with the same problems faced by Abbott and Perrottet. The only reason Dutton doesn’t have those problems atm is that no one expects him to win. Should he surprise them a Matt Kean style whiteant will appear to knobble him quick smart.

  12. NFA says:

    Senator Alex Antic has an 22 Sept 2023 interview with Senator Jacinta Nampijinpa Price as part of his BASED podcasts,

    A leading campaigner against Labor’s proposed “Voice” to Parliament, on this episode of BASED, Senator Nampijinpa Price and I discuss the real issues facing Indigenous Australians, and how the “Voice” will do nothing to address them.

  13. C.L. says:

    Price, Antic, Canavan… Strange, isn’t it, that the plain-speaking stars are in the ‘unrepresentative’ chamber and the narrative wranglers are in the ‘people’s house’?

    I made the same point as Wally last week about the PM/chamber convention. Maybe it’s time to ignore it. It has no legal basis whatsoever.

  14. C.L. says:

    Thanks for interview, BTW, NFA.

  15. Entropy says:

    I don’t agree with PMs or Ministers coming from the senate at all. Unrepresentative swill as they generally are, in our eagerness to elevate someone who is eloquent and passionate, we don’t want to set up a situation where in the future someone like Keneally became PM. There must be another way.
