Political Lament

15 Nov

I just wish that I were voting for something as defiantly as I am against.

And every time I hear Julia Gillard speak, I think I wish they’d had the courage to let her lead.

    Yep, know the feeling…

    Yup. Bless Julia Gillard and her empty fruit bowl.

    If only it were at all possible to vote Bob Brown PM. Sigh.

    Next time, next time…I think they have put the right person in if they want to win.

    What? A sheila. At the head of the Party?

    I’ll dance naked in the food court of Highpoint if they ever do that.

    Lovely idea, of course.

    Bob Brown and Julia Gillard would be a team actually worth braving the voting queue for.

    Elsewhere, you’re (sadly) right. I’m hoping ‘me too’ is the strategy the Garrett gaffe suggests. Suse, I would quit my job and work to elect that team.

    Yes. It would be lovely to have a sheila at the head of the party. Especially one as intelligent as Julia.
    But
    (sigh)
    she will never be on a team with Bob Brown.
    She’s actually on the side of the CMFEU and the foresters and the woodchippers. She’s one of those laborites who would mock BB and pretend that all the Greens want to do is destroy TEH JOBS for TEH WORKING CLASS elites latte etc etc.

    She thought Latham trying to save the Tasmanian forests in 2004 was wrong.

    Unless she’s done a complete turnaround since2004. In that case, you won’t see anyone happier to eat their words.

    If you don’t know the background, google “Julia gillard” and “Michael O’Connor”.

    Sorry, I don’t mean to be excessively negative.

    I did so WANT JG to be the answer to all our prayers. But, sadly, she ain’t. On Workchoices, yes, on the other stuff, no.
