Oh happy Queensland day

Over a few glasses of a ten dollar Merlot I watched the Rout of Labor last night and it was a great way to end a great day that started with me voting. What I found extraordinary was the fact that Labor were not even able to rouse more than one person to man the Dayboro booth and boy did I feel bad for that guy he was a man on the edge of tears in anticipation for the result that we all new was coming. Its people like him that I feel for today. those shattered ALP faithful who have been utterly destroyed by a result that could see less than ten Labor held seats in the new Parliament. As Ray will undoubtedly say this could be a  bad thing but I think that for the first term at least we are going to see a government that understands and appreciates the value of humility . In any event due to the fact that we have only one house of state parliament here in the sunshine state any majority, even a one seat majority, gives the governemnt of the day unfettered power to run things as they please.

So as I watch the sunrise I am now more than ever happy to live in the sunshine state secure in the knowledge that the result here will send a shiver down the collective  spine of Labor Party and maybe, just maybe, they will realise the folly of some of their mad policies (like the carbon tax), sadly I suspect that they will carry on regardless in which case I expect to be enjoying another few glasses of Merlot as the Gillard crew are as soundly trounced at the next Federal election.

That is  especially for my brother, a believer in more ways than one


The big pissing contest in Dayboro

I had a lovely visit from my brother and his mate Curley yesterday and after some chin wagging over a cuppa we decided to head on down to the big smoke, Dayboro, for a pie at the bakery where we found that the usually sleepy town experiencing a huge police presence.

We counted nine police bikes, six marked cars and a similar number of unmarked cars

No crime possible in Dayboro yesterday 🙂

The reason for this sideshow?

A group of aging bikies were having a club run and they had decided to try the tucker at the Dayboro pub for lunch!
where we were sitting at the Bakery we had ringside seats to the fun and games as scouts from the club did circuits up and down the roads to check out on the coppers and members of rival gangs checked them out as well.
Forgive me for thinking that the whole thing was just a little too much like a very big pissing contest.

Anyway that was our excitement yesterday
Cheers Comrades
