    Whoo-hoo!

    Labor is gone in Queensland! This is what happens to politicians who say one thing before an election and do another after. There might be a message in there for someone else.

    It's not pretty for them:

    Telling lies to get elected. Nobody likes being taken for a fool. They seem to have won 6 seats. Meetings should be easy to run and there are now so many more venues available to seat them all. AND no greens.

    A moribund over-layered public "service" is the reason!

    What's the difference between the QLD ALP and a Toyota Tarago?

    A Tarago has eight seats.

    And Juliar still thinks this result has nothing to do with the Federal Labour Party or the federal policies.

    She thinks she is a God, and that regardless of what she does, or how many lies she tells, she is above reproach.

    Her demise is yet to come, and I can bet you, that she will cling onto power for every single day that she can and stretch out the next Federal election for as long as she can.
    Labour has lost its heartland, and I think the Labour Party had better start listening, and had better stop preaching, because the people of Australia know better.

    She called the middle aged protestors who were against the Carbon Tax a group of incontinents, but these incontinents know a lot more than a group of incompetants.

    She will rue the day she tried to control the press, because they are waiting patiently so they can say "I told you so!".
    The only people that want to control the press are the same people that have a lot to hide!
    And the anti-semitic, pro-radical-Muslim, anti-rich communist party (sorry, they call themselves the Greens), are not green at all. .
    All they want to do is ruin the country even more than Labour do. They are perfect bed-fellows

    Sorry for my rant.

    It's due to an unstable electoral substrate.

    And I hope I haven't offended any Qlders.

    Now she wants us to tone down ANZAC Day, because it may offend our immigrants. I think she has lost the plot, and needs to be locked up. It's getting well and truly beyond a joke.

    Geoff, who does? I read - sorry, skimmed - this article recently, but a "she" didn't register. So who are we lambasting? Can you cite a ref?

    I should have said "They". The Australian government. I heard this from a mother of an Australian Navy Seaman. Who is not very impressed.

    Hmm, well in case I had missed something by skimming - though really, as I recall, the 1st sentence or 2 showed that it was a rather iffy headline - I checked any on-line sources. I can't find the Sun Herald one, but here are some links. They show that there was some focus group polling done as to "whether" AD had any potential to cause any offence. From the results I doubt that AD is in any danger of being minimised. But that anybody actually "wants" to tone it down - what's to tone down anyway? - is drawing a long bow. As you can read in the articles, the consensus was rather a thumbs down for any changes.

    Ah! At last. I'm sure this was it...
    http://www.heraldsun.com.au/news/mor...-1226309694960

    So, it would appear as if "the government", in the person of the PM, is indeed not for the idea of toning it down either.
    That leaves only the mother of a seaman.
    (Geoff, note to self: check bowstring length)

    True But in your first link.
    "A Federal Government-commissioned study that claims that celebrating Anzac Day is potentially offensive to migrants has received a big thumbs down from virtually everyone, including Eurobodalla residents."
    Why would they spend $370.000 on a study, if the thought had not entered their head in the first place?

    The mother is question is very proud of her daughters acheivements in the Navy, and comes from a very poor background. Of course she would be upset if someone would belittle our armed forces, over some political correctiveness bulldung.

    1. Look at that sentence. It contains a logic flaw.

    2. That a government would commission a study would mean to me that:
    a) it is responding to some idea NOT NECESSARILY instigated by them,
    b) it is doing a democratically responsible thing instead of just making a "ruling"

    3. If the "idea" had in fact "entered their (collective) head" that idea would not necessarily have been to "tone it down" but whether any toning down was warranted.

    There's no accounting for how things are reported - and that's not a criticism of the media, rather how the subject is then interpreted at large.

    These are a few of MHOs. The topic as to who said/thought/dreamed what/when/why could be argued back and forth, but to what end?

    Governments will not commission a study unless they know the outcome,a former Premier of South Australia has been reputed to say, don`t have a Royal commission unless you know the outcome.

    Did Julia not want to put some minority's of side because she might lose votes.
