And now they beg

At first disgraceful, now pathetic.

Dennis Atkins:

Three weeks ago, commentators elsewhere were singing that Labor was losing the election and winning the campaign. Now those same songbirds are chirping that this is the worst Labor campaign in living memory.

Perhaps the truth lies in between.

They needed to tear down Campbell Newman and make sure the damage landed heavily in the seat of Ashgrove.

It was high-risk. All bets went one way and there was no laying off.

It worked for a while but then Premier Anna Bligh stuffed up. She said she had nothing. Can’t walk back from that.

Campaign desperado Anthony Chisholm knows deep in his dark soul the only card left is – leave us with something. It’s begging and it’s humiliating.

    It’s worrying though that it might just work in far too many seats, like multiple simultaneous by- elections- ‘Ah well, it won’t change the state result…’

    According to the Oz today, Bligh has used the Qld GST cash to fund poll promises:
    “The Bligh government ignored its own Treasury Department’s advice to direct a $1.16 billion GST windfall earlier this year to reduce the state’s budget deficit and pay down debt, instead using most of the projected new commonwealth revenue to fund election promises…
    “…credit analyst Standard & Poor’s warned that Queensland’s AA rating would not be upgraded unless the state’s debt and deficit position improved.”

    2 sleeps and the rotting carcass of anna B liars governmen can finally be buried. The incoming government should bemolish parliament house and salt the earth as an examle to Queenslanders.

      Don’t bury them… drive a stake through their hearts, hang garlic around their necks, strap crucifixes to their foreheads and then burn them.

      ** figuratively speaking of course.. this is not a death threat.

    I heard a bit of an interview with Bligh on my way to the airport yesterday and she said words to the effect of (I paraphrase)…Mr Newman needs to explain how he’s going to fund all these promises when there is actually a huge debt and no money..

      What scares me the most is that 30% of the state will vote for the ALP corruptocrats.

      This time tomorrow night the champagne should be flowing for the LNP. I hope the alpoids only retain 8 seats.

    Ha Ha Ha! Labor is dead. Qld can rejoice. Australia has the death of the ALP to look forward to.

    Couldn’t have happened to a nicer bunch of schmucks. And the Greens… who?
