A crisis of confidence

If you listened to Labor MP, Jackie Trad, and her smug commentary on Saturday night, you would think that Queensland voters are in love with the Labor Party. But she’s wrong. Queenslanders are not in love with the Labor Party. They did not run down to the ballot box jumping for joy at the prospect of electing a new Labor government that looks pretty much the same as the old one that they blasted out of office less than three years...

Stop the boats? It’s working swimmingly!

Tony Abbott’s policy of stopping the boats is going swimmingly. And the Left hates it. They would prefer for Australia’s government to completely neglect its responsibility to protect our borders. Instead, under the deceitful claim of compassion, the Left would welcome in those who seek to destroy our nation. They are living in a land of fantasy, fuelled by negative emotion. It starts with self-loathing. The Left hate themselves. Then...

AFA: Homosexual marriage cost LNP Griffith

The Australian Family Association has issued a press release stating that the LNP’s Dr Bill Glasson lost the Griffith by-election due to his support for homosexual marriage. It certainly has merit and I have republished it in full below. There can be no doubt that Dr Glasson’s decision to adopt the same radical social policies as his Labor competitors reduced his appeal among conservative voters. Even in an urban seat like...

Tony Abbott, Malcolm Turnbull & the Griffith by-election

Tony Abbott, more than any other person in this wide, bronzed land, will be hoping that the rather dull affair known as the Griffith by-election will follow the script of Australian political history this Saturday. The script is that governments never win by-elections, especially when the seat is held by the opposition. Okay, it’s not exactly never. It’s happened once federally and that was way back in 1920. Tony Abbott will be...

Liberals & Abortion: Crawling forward & leaping backwards

I’m the first to admit that I’m not the greatest fan of the Liberal Party. But I’m also happy to acknowledge when they get it right. And over the weekend, the Victorian branch of the Liberal Party got it right. At the State Council, members voted to repeal provisions of the Victorian abortion laws that prevent doctors from exercising their conscience. These anti-choice laws were put in by the Labor party in its dying days of...

The Governor-General, the media and general stupidity

I would like to thank the Governor-General for making it abundantly clear that she is unfit for her role. She did it in grand style over the weekend, throwing her support behind two failed causes that those she governs have rejected demonstrably at the ballot box: the destruction of marriage and the destruction of our constitutional monarchy. The Governor-General informed us via the ABC (no surprises there) that she hoped Australia...

Abbott: ticking the controversial boxes early

Today, Online Opinion has published a piece I have written regarding the Abbott government’s early approach to controversial issues. In a nutshell, the new Prime Minister is doing as much as he needs to do, not as much as he should do. In the absence of any credible political threat on the right, all the Liberal & National parties need to do to keep faith with conservative voters is be less ‘progressive’ than...

Upping the debate over innocent crims and governance in Queensland

There’s been a bit of a stoush in Queensland over the LNP government’s new laws targeting criminal organisations. Apparently, the concern is that these laws mean three old grannies wearing Salvos shirts and selling jams at the local fete could be locked in the slammer. If that is the case, then it’s a bit of legislative overkill. It’s also a concerning attack on rights and freedoms. As a result, any number of news stories have been...

Sorting out the good guys from the bad

Remember the brouhaha earlier this year? You know, the one about abortion and whether our taxes should fund terminal ‘medical procedures’ carried out because the unwanted lump of ‘non-human’ cells has the wrong human genitalia? Well it’s back in the news. Not because our politicians are finally going to do something useful and say no, it’s a waste of money to fund a practice that, at best, could be described as ethically questionable....

Tony supports legalised abortion and it’s time to take him on his word

Tony Abbott doesn’t think abortion is a political issue. He made this statement while out on the campaign trail with a pro-abortion Liberal candidate running in the most marginal seat in Australia. Given the circumstances, one can’t help but feel that Mr Abbott is wrong in his assessment on what constitutes a political issue. It is clearly an election issue, otherwise the media wouldn’t have questioned him on it while he was out and...
