The bigotry of the left?

For what? Calling out the misappropriation of public funds for a private political campaign.

As for divide and conquer tactics, what could be more divisive than a minority on the council (one of whom is the deputy president of said political party and the other the father in law of one of the candidates) paying for a hijacked council event with public money for a Political campaign launch and giving an actual political figure from that Party (Nigel Scullion) the ability to pick who can and can’t come to the Council event and then giving guest (Malcolm Turnbull) the right to pick what media attend to question him at a supposedly local public event?

The definition of bigotry is “intolerance towards those who hold different opinions from oneself.” By tossing your toys about or being called out for foul play and not allowing anybody to ask any real questions rather than have a whitewashed and sterile event, you are in fact demonstrating the behavioural tendencies of ab.

Town Council riven by conflict, lack of leadership
I sincerely cannot believe that people are so surprised that such shenanigans were going to take place when the divisions are so obvious.

Half the sitting Town councillors are current or former CLP members and there are no Greens or Labor councillors at all on it (although Jimmy could be argued as being Green inclined).

Which basically translates to the CLP crowd versus a bunch of increasingly united independents from the Town (and across the spectrum) saying no to this bullshit.

There was no way that that council was going to willingly agree to use ratepayers money to pay for a defacto campaign launch for Jacinta (Jeez even Robyn Lambley said it was awkward) nor would it have optionally agreed to have Nigel Scullion’s office doing all the invites for a Town Council EVENT or to the Prime Minister’s office vetting what media was allowed in.

What amateurs…….Would you like some bandages for that bullet hole in your foot?

National Aboriginal gallery: Town Council’s action clear as mud
The crystal ball tells me there will be squabbling over this for the foreseeable future and meanwhile, South Australia will smoothly construct their own iconic site leaving the Territory with nothing.

Motion carried for former Prime Minister, Jacinta Price to pay for council party
John you know Neville Chamberlain’s “Peace in our time” speech about Hitler? That’s how wrong you are and I can only assume you’re a CLP member trying to put your own spin on this.
So let’s face some facts here. The PM came to town to promote a Liberal candidate for the up and coming election and for NO other real purpose.
The reception and launch was paid for on the backs of local rate payers and was masqueraded as a public event despite all the invites being done by Minister Scullions office, all the media being scrutinised by the PM’s office and the town council having diddly squat say over their own event, what was discussed or who attended.
The Mayor is a long time CLP sympathiser and has a son in law running for the senate on the CLP ticket. The Deputy Mayor is the Deputy President of the CLP and Cr Price is the bloody candidate for the CLP. All of these people have massive conflicts of interest, end of friggin story.
But because none of these people wanted egg on their faces despite all doing something they would have known they shouldn’t be doing, and now it has turned to a sh@#storm.
The funny thing is though is that all that would have been required to neutralise this in the first place would have been to show some decency and responsibility for what happened, take it on the nose, apologise and just pay the bloody bill.
This would have all gone away at this point. A bit embarrassing but done in any case.
But yet again, to probably save face, now this “anonymous concerned donator” comes into the fold to pay on the same day before the motion was even carried.
For people with fantasies of power, it seems their political skill level will take them to just that, deluded fantasies.

Government lied on liquor, says Lambley, demands poll
If these policies introduced do end up working regardless of election campaign promises to the contrary, does Ms Lambley intend to maintain she was against them from the get go? And will anyone care if what was said a community meeting is gone back on if it solves the alcohol issue?
I think not.
Will Ms Lambley admit that she failed to to nip the situation in the bud when she was a high powered minister and that the statistics may have been climbing during that time as well?
There seems to be a lot of research out there from other parts of the world where alcohol abuse has been curbed by introducing similiar policies, and yet she seems to whinging about it being rolled out.
What alternative strategy does she propose aside from the throw away lines everyone says about POSIs which are already being worked on??
Would be interested to see what solutions she has developed over the MANY years she’s been in Parliament and a minister to combat the issues. My bets are, she has none and thrashing the same old horse in a bid to appear still relevant to voters.
Robyn, put up or shut up. Simple. Otherwise, if you have nothing useful to contribute, move on before you are thrown out.

Senator Nigel Scullion elected acting CLP president
Here’s some food for thought.
Why is it that the CLP has two deputy Vice Presidents and the rules usually indicate that the next in line takes the reins, yet its been passed sideways to a senator who never seems to be findable when its crunch time?
Stone has fled and De-Brenni has stood down (refusing to drink from what I can only imagine is a poisoned challace) and Scullion has been made acting president despite there being another VP (Rhianna Harker) who expressed an interest in the role? What is going on here?
Two leaders resign and a third is either skipped over or not interested? Something big is going on inside CLP at the moment yet the most obvious questions don’t seem to be answered in the media’s coverage? Are you on their payroll or something?
Would be good to see some investigative journalism into this.
Just a thought.
[ED – No, we are not on their payroll. They just have very little to say.]
