Queensland Labor in the Wipeout zone

A Labor Member is pushed rather than jumping like nine out of fifty one have already done.

The outlook for Labor true believers up here in Queensland is rather grim as they watch the unedifying example of their state MPs deserting the sinking ship under the captaincy of Anna Bligh. The latest is Julie Attwood who cites the illness of her husband as the reason:

Nine out of fifty-one! struth that’s a really bad set of numbers for Bligh and the election has not even started!

I was chatting to my brother other day and he was telling me that the reason that Bligh is putting off the election until the last possible moment is that Labor are having the hardest time imaginable finding anyone to put their hand up to be candidates for them at the next poll. Ponder than for just a moment, a major party with such bad prospects that it can’t put up enough candidates in every seat for the election. That is truly a party headed for the wipe out zone…

Cheers Comrades

    Be like the cruise ship captain.

    I didn’t desert a sinking ship, rather, I slipped and fell into the life boat !

    Hmm that must mean that quite a few “captains” in Labor are following his example

    It was on tonights channel 7 news, which you are about to get aren’t you !
    What a great quote !

  4. Sax says:

    Watch the pollies in the labor party quote the same line, or blame everything on the GFC, when the true extent of their blown budgets, and massive overseas financial debt, shows its ugly head before the next election. The libs could put up Foghorn Leghorn and still win in a landslide.
