Angry Anderson for Canberra!

I know that many politics junkies become devoted fans of  the pronouncements of their party  or brand of choice, and they devote their efforts to devouring and regurgitation the liturgy of their chosen political faith but my tendency is to focus on what the other side is saying. It all goes back to a personal epiphany that I had as a child. Namely if you read what they read then you have a chance of understanding how they think and what informs that thinking. Thus my reading of ” women’s” magazines and literature made it possible for me to make easy friendships with those of the female persuasion and reading the , ah hmm the “literature” of the uneducated blokes gave me some insight about them as well. I have continued this rather catholic reading habit into my blogging career and to that end I subscribe to all kinds of electronic news letters, mainly from parties and groups that I don’t endorse at all. Get Up counts me as a member even though I have never given them a single cent or ever signed a single  one of their online petitions. I get regular emails form Julia and Wayne telling me about the virtues of the Australian Labor party. Stuff  about the Greens and the Sex party  make regular appearances in my in boxes  and it is about the last one that I’m writing today. Their newsletter had a short piece complaining that Angry Anderson might seek to enter politics as, GASP!! a conservative !

There is a certain irony in Robbie Swan being so surprised that Anderson has taken this  political stance because like a lot of those in the Music industry I’m sure that Anderson has seen more than his fair share of the consequences of substance abuse. Anderson has shown that he is always more interested in practical results for the people who have had the rough end of the stick. Rather than the namby-pamby and detached from reality philosophical musings of those from the far left.

  Anderson in Politics?   Bring it on I say at least the campaign will be interesting and very rock and roll: and the Sex party will find that they are little more than a broken condom as the votes are counted.

Cheers Comrades

    Yep! Being a knuckleheaded loudmouth certainly suits for politics these days! He’ll be right at home amongst all the other KL’s. What have we done, and were did we go wrong to deserve such mediocracy? On both sides!!

  2. Iain Hall says:

    Better a loud-mouth who says what he means than an effete orator who tells us sweet sounding lies IMHO has well as that he has the runs on the board for actually helping the most marginalised in our society

  3. GD says:

    I say bring it on too. Angry couldn’t do worse than fellow rock singer, limp duck leftie Peter Garret has done.

    Remember Peter Garret, the dancing and singing bald head, ‘bed’s are burning’. Since then all he’s done is pink batts are burning… and lives are lost…good one Garrett….

    Instead, Anderson has runs on the board.

    Unlike the current union run government, where not one member has ever held a job outside of politics, Angry has worked against the odds his whole life. He understands mainstream and working Australia. Having worked as a brickie and labourer, he knows full well the impact of recent Labor carbon tax impost on average families.

    He also has strident and sensible views about the recent overflow of muslim immigration that we are currently experiencing.

    In July 2007, Anderson was criticised after espousing his views on Muslim immigration to Australia when he told The Daily Telegraph:[25][26]

    It’s not ill-conceived to look at certain people and question when they come out here and what they bring with them … We have strict quarantine laws and it should be the same when it comes to cultures that do not want to integrate. We should be very careful about where certain Muslims come from and what they believe. If you come here, you should behave yourself – it’s as simple as that… If people come and live in any country and their way of life is so different they need their own special laws, then possibly they have to pick somewhere else to live.

    I agree.

  4. Richard Ryan says:

    GD! You not last 10 seconds in Anderson’s company.

  5. Iain Hall says:

    I think that they would get on like a house on fire Richard

    That’s arguably one of the most xenophobic and prejudiced statements ever made and exactly why Anderson should never be elected. So he compares immigrants to animals?

  7. Iain Hall says:

    We are all animals Ray, everyone of us.

  8. alan says:

    gee, how deep and meaningful was that.
    one can over here and be amazed at the quality and depth of the commentary.
    it must be the number one blog for insightfulness!

  9. deknarf says:

    Ahh Ian! A knucklehead is still a knucklehead regardless of his politicial affiliations. We have enough of them in Federal Parliament at the moment to:
    a) not need any more, and
    b) clean out what’s already there,
    starting with the Green’s first!

  10. Iain Hall says:

    deknarf

    The point of this post was to mock the Sex party bloke’s assumption that a working class bloke like Anderson should have left wing ideology, should endorse a drugs free for all, and so forth.
    That said I think that you confuse the Angry Anderson persona in front of Rose Tattoo with the man who has don a shit load of good for the causes he supports (like the homeless) and other worthy charities. see the man interviewed and you will see that much of the “little tough guy” persona is an act and a creation of show business

  11. Iain Hall says:

    Are you still here Alan?

  12. alan says:

    where else could i get my quota of mindless nonsense?
    oh, and deep and thoughtful commentary? haha

    maybe you could get ‘angry’ to help clean up your yard, as he is so community minded, and your back won’t let you do it!
    looked messy when i was up there in my hire car last week.

  13. GD says:

    Are you still here Alan?

    Aren’t you sorry you asked, Iain? People like lower case alan are the reason we have an idiot, debt-ridden government in power for the next 400 or so days.

    It will be a great celebration when we right thinking conservatives chuck this lot of charlatans out and vote in an adult government.

    Considering that the polls are 30% Labor, 10% Greens and 60% Liberal, I’d say it’s a done deal, and one that will stay done for many years.

    lower case alan and his ilk can squirm all they like, but being unable to even express a coherent thought, it won’t do much good when the sensible people, once again, take charge.

  14. Richard Ryan says:

    Tony Abbott in charge, the JOKER of Australian politics.

  15. Iain Hall says:

    Alan

    maybe you could get ‘angry’ to help clean up your yard, as he is so community minded, and your back won’t let you do it!
    looked messy when i was up there in my hire car last week.

    That you should claim this is creepy enough if its true its even more creepy and the epitome of stalker behaviour!

  16. alan says:

    it’s true and its called ‘forensics’
    i’m good at it.
    for instance i have been able to deduce that all wining horses have 4 legs.
    i have been able to deduce that gd is no longer married, and what a surprise that is!
    i have been able to deduce why you are not working.(weird that you would do it though, considering it’s all against your professed beliefs)
    bow’s end

    stalking it’s not as i couldn’t give a stuff about you.
    i have property at hatton vale, so i thought i would take a nice drive up to lake somerset.
    i was intrigued about all the stuff i had read about YOU on the net, and as i was in the general area anyway………..

    gd, i am serious when i say you need a good shrink.
    he/she could probably go a long way towards changing your outlook on life that is ruining yours.
    that we have a labor government is nothing whatsoever to do with me, it’s just the workings of a mind that is stuffed(yours).

  17. Ray Dixon says:

    Alan, you’ve clearly gone to the trouble of finding Iain’s address (which he doesn’t display on this blog) and then gone out of your way to observe him and/or his property (same thing). Then you’ve goaded him about it online. How would you feel if someone you’ve crossed swords with on the Internet did that to you? It’s stalking, mate.

  18. Iain Hall says:

    As Ray has said its stalking plain and simple Alan.

  19. alan says:

    to ray.

    nonsense, everything was on the web to be found if one looked.
    i have no interest in doing anything, i was just letting him know i know.
    i haver sussed him
    he is a fraud.
    there is a reason i took this interest, but that’s for you guys to guess.
    now i know what i set out to find out, then i have that knowledge, and have no further interest in the pretender.
    i could have pasted his address if i felt like it(here, or if not, then elsewhere), but i didn’t and i won’t.
    it’s also laughable to call me a stalker when he himself would be worst internet stalker in the history of the net.

  20. Iain Hall says:

    Lower-case Alan
    Mate You are a dead set stalker and a cowardly one at that not only do you claim to have discovered where I live (something I have never published) but you also claim to have physically inspected my place from your “hire car” now as Hatton Vale is a good 2 hours drive from my joint that means that you must have done four hours of driving for a three second drive by. Now that suggests one of two things either you are bullshitting big time and all that you have done is look at google earth street view (which is creepy enough on its own) or that you are truly obsessed enough to do that much effort for so little result.
    Either way you have out done anything that I have ever been accused off.
    Further the threat to publish my home address is even more evidence that you are a dead set stalker.

    Go away now I’ve added you to my banned list and comments from you will no longer be accepted here

  21. GD says:

    Well done, Iain!

  22. Iain Hall says:

    Sadly necessary GD but even sadder is the fact that “alan” will probably reinvent himself,again and be back under another name before too long.

  23. Richard Ryan says:

    I had my postal address posted on Akerman’s blog, by a scum bag who blogs under the screen name Dracula some years ago, probably found me on google earth—was not happy.

  24. Iain Hall says:

    Despite our political differences Richard I totally understand how you feel about such things

  25. Ray Dixon says:

    everything was on the web to be found if one looked

    Yeah, Alan, searching out someone’s home address on the Internet may not be serious stalking in itself but it’s the start of the process. And when you take it one step further by going to his home you’re well and truly in stalking territory, I’d say. And then to goad and boast about it online is proof positive that you were out to intimidate/harass/offend him regardless of whether you’ve got any interest in “doing anything” further. I suggest you check the Qld laws on that matter – it’s “on the web to be found if one looked”.

  26. GD says:

    even sadder is the fact that “alan” will probably reinvent himself,again and be back under another name before too long

    Well, with his incoherent and illiterate writing style, I’m sure we’ll recognise him.

  27. Richard Ryan says:

    IT is still there on Piers blog—–how do I go about getting it deleted?

  28. Richard Ryan says:

    He might have the hots for you Iain. Stranger things have happened.

  29. GD says:

    Richard, have you a link? I’d be happy to take it up with Piers. That is disgraceful.

  30. Iain Hall says:

    Richard
    Oh I have my suspicions that “alan” was someone who has long been obsesses with yours truly, strange coincidence that a certain “senior writer” has been AWOL while “alan” has been away and now that she is back so too is “mr” lower case “alan”. As they say in the detective books I don’t believe in coincidence….

  31. Richard Ryan says:

    IT is still there GD—-“In case PM forgets buck stops with him” Piers Akerman blog sun.17th Jan.2010. but don’t worry about it—–Dracula got me on google earth for sure—-does not worry me now—–but when it happened–I gave him heaps, and he left the “scene of the crime” for a little time.

  32. Richard Ryan says:

    This could be a blog thriller—-Return to the scene of the crime—alan spills the beans!

  33. Richard Ryan says:

    I think alan is a woman in a mans body—crying out for help, now he or she is been rejected, sad really, gone back to reading his Mills and Boon books–a magpie is singing on my back veranda looking for food—–is it alan.?

  34. Richard Ryan says:

    PLEASE alan come out of the closet—–tell us, and get it off your chest or breast.
