Don’t be surprised – Greens are not ALP’s natural ally

Well I certainly agree with the thrust of your argument here which you make most competently, Sadly for anyone with sympathy for the ALP I think that the Gillard government has lost far too much credibility with the voting public for very many of those middle class voters to return to their fold at the next poll. All of the anti Green rhetoric of recent days may help them save a few seats and when you are facing a decisive rout that is probably the best that you could possibly expect. I suspect that the next Labor PM is not yet out of high school or even a member of the party but if the only thing that the party gets out of its coming electoral disaster is a policy of placing the Greens last on every how to vote card the country will be better for it.

Oh and this seems a rather apt cartoon from Larry Pickering with thanks  to GD for pointing it out to me

Cheers Comrades

I’m not a psephologist, so I’m quite prepared for this to be blown apart by Mumble or Poll Bludger.

But I’m being driven crazy by the political ignorance displayed by those gnashing their teeth over the recent ratcheting-up of the ALP’s stance against the Greens. In short, the ingénues are saying “why fight with each other when the Libs are the enemy?”.

Such naïveté ignores the reality that each political party considers all others the enemy – even the Libs and Nats vigorously compete against each other for a seat previously held by a retiring Coalition MP (sometimes to their detriment, and sometimes not).

The mistake being made by political newbies and idealists on Twitter is that Labor and the Greens are natural allies against the Coalition. They forget that in the real world, it is each party for themselves with all others being considered the enemy.

Since the last…

    The same Larry Pickering who prides himself on being a scam artist, and relieving gullible people of money they can’t afford.to lose.
    If I was a Liberal I would disown him.
    A piece of scum.

  2. Iain Hall says:

    Clearly you have no sense of humour Alan 😉

  3. alan says:

    I have a sense of humour, but the best thing for the world would be if expired.
    I didn’t read the article at all……no interest.
    perhaps you don’t know what i do of his history.

  4. Iain Hall says:

    Well you missed out by not reading Dragonista’s piece because she is, as it happens, a left of centre writer who I happen to respect.

  5. GD says:

    Here’s an apt analogy to go with Pickering’s apt cartoon.

    It’s from Caz on Piers’ blog.

    Labor ‘made love’ with the Greens but now they’re pregnant with its baby they’re screaming rape. And birthing that nasty little carbon baby is going to hurt like hell – I doubt they’ll survive


  6. Iain Hall says:

    That is a really cute analogy GD!
    the fact that Tony Abbott is prepared to end the tax should please the feminists who keep complaining that our Tone will never support abortion…..

  7. Carpe Jugulum says:

    I don’t think the alp trying to distance themselves from the greenslime is going to work.

    Their ‘brand’ is so badly tainted by their dishonesty with the electorate and their astonishing ineptitude that the average punter out in voterland has switched off any (supposedly) coherent massage they may have, (which is unlikely).

  8. GD says:

    Tone certainly supports aborting the ‘nasty little carbon baby’….. 🙂

  9. Carpe Jugulum says:

    @ GD – the nasty little carbon babay should be chucked out with the bathwater.

    Then consigned to the dustbin of history (with prejudice). 😉

  10. Richard Ryan says:

    Still laughing! When Fatty Vautin called Akerman “a big fat heap of shit”—–Piers was speechless, and all his so called media mates pissing themselves laughing.

  11. Richard Ryan says:

    YEAH, the camera does not lie—watched it on TV.

  12. Richard Ryan says:

    (Q) What’s pink and sweats? (A) An abortion in a plastic bag.

  13. Carpe Jugulum says:

    Very poor trolling effort richard – 2/10.

  14. […] Don’t be surprised – Greens are not ALP’s natural ally […]
