Queensland Country Life newspaper in bed making babies with LNP

Fairfax Media’s hitman forQueensland, Cameron Thompson, editor of the Queensland Country Life newspaper has launched a broadside at Bob Katter, telling him to keep out of Liberal National Party territory.

Since Cameron took the helm, QCL circulation has dipped like Juliar Gillard’s popularity poll.

Cameron Thompson, a longtime critic of any political party other than the Liberals, got his orders a month ago from the LNP HQ to formally discredit Katters Australian Party, a talent he has been honing since the formation of KAP.

He used the front page (March 15) on this occasion to blame Katter for allowing Coal Seam Gas miners onto private property. He wrote that Katter as Mines Minister in 1989 introduced the legislation allowing miners on to farm property. What poor Cameron doesn’t know is that most title deeds have reserved all mineral and petroleum deposits to the Crown. Katter had nothing to do with this 100 year old entitlement.

Cameron should have looked at how many amendments have been made to the Mineral Resources Act since 1989.

Thompson is well known in LNP social circles for gripping the goat, and has shared many a festive board celebration with the pillars of the big end of town inGeorge St,Brisbane.

He was taught to be cautious, but his latest tirade against Bob Katter has drooped to lower proportions than an octogenarian’s appendage.

Maybe he has an underdeveloped complex about this and is in need of a viagra quick fix?

Or maybe Cameron is fantasizing that he is punishing the KAP for spilling the beans on former Brisbane Mayor and hero Campbell Newman who has an affinity for telling one group one thing then telling another bunch of hopefuls another like his support for same sex marriage.

Really, when it is all said and done,Campbelldid say he supported gay marriage, and most grippers or the QCL readership would not warm to that statement.

So is Cameron trying to retrieve the irretrievable?

He forgets Katter has 40 years experience inQueenslandpolitics and has never been defeated at an election, in spite of various electoral frauds being committed.

The KAP policies have been formulated in an effort to undo the damage caused to ruralAustraliaby the Liberals’ freetrading policies which have decimated all agricultural industries, particularly dairy farmers.

Being a reporter on a rural newspaper one would think Cameron has some nous about these industries, but he just parrots the lines given to him by the LNP.

It is a sad day because people want change and not a continuation of ALP policies that the LNP will give us.

Cameron should have looked at how many amendments have been made to the Mineral Resources Act since 1989.

The LNP has refused to repeal the ALP’s hated Vegetation Management Act, because Opposition Leader Jeff Seeney (Peter Beattie’s unofficial cousin) said too many land owners had been fined under the act. It is here to stay, he said.

Years ago an astute bushman once said, “The C_ _ _ of a Life paper is just the unofficial organ of the National Party.

“If you want to find out what’s going on in the bush listen to the ABC.”

The Australian Party plan for Re-Constructing Queensland

Bob Katter and Aidan McLindon today launched the The Australian Party’s plan for “Re-constructing Queensland”.

The plan was announced at the campaign launch in Townsville and will see government switch from “selling and spending” to “building and wealth generating”.

It will create 60 000 new full time jobs over the next six years and see infrastructure investment of between $20 and $25 billion.

At last we have an option for REAL change.

Dodgy Queensland Electoral Commissioner removes Katter name

The Queensland Electoral Commission, long tainted with corruption allegations has again shown its true colours by dropping the Katter name from Katters Australian Party on two million ballot papers..

An application has been made to the Supreme Court to have the Katter name reinstated.

Last year, amid some controversy the Australian Party applied to have the name registered as a political party. The Electoral Commission refused saying the Australian Party name was too similar to other registered parties.

As a result Katters Australian Party was registered by the Commission.

Alan Jones – Katter Australian Party Comments

To make an informed decision at the Queensland polling booth on March 24, take time to view this video, as should all Australia.

Realiasation as to the very serious situation our nation has been placed from decades of dedication to both major political parties by voters, leaves very little time for salvation of the Australia our forefathers made free to the people.

Queensland bans pocket knives

Queenslanders are somewhat inured to the extremes of the 20 year old neo-fascist Labor regime headed by Anna Bligh, a descendant of the infamous Captain Bligh of Mutiny on the Bounty fame.

As small business, large companies, electricity users, farmers, transport, homeowners and just about everyone else was buckling under the stupidity and largesse of the government, Bligh announced an election for March 24.Queensland Labor Premier Anna Bligh

Great sighs of relief were heard from as far away as Darwin.

The latest addition to the ALP’s 80,000 pages of bureaucratic red tape was not the expected attack on gun owners, but pocket knife users.

Pocket knives, cane knives, kitchen knives and in fact just about anything used for cutting now comes under category M in the Weapons Act which requires a license if you carry them on your person or in your vehicle.

And guess what? The ALP didn’t win the Annual Asinine Gong unaided. The vacuous Liberal party supported the amended regulations by voting with the ALP in Parliament before Christmas.

Notably all the independents opposed the amendments.

The reaction in some parts of Queensland has been rather, shall we say, at best, contemptuous of politicians with outright public displays of total defiance in local newspapers and talkback radio.

One courageous Atherton Tablelands newspaper, the district in which Bob Katter unleashed news of the ALP/LNP regulations, published numerous letters and photos of law-abiding Vietnam Vets brandishing their heirloom pocket knives, telling the ALP/LNP to “come get em.”

Such is the rarity of politics in Queensland. Katters Australian Party, with 65 excellent candidates is set to wipe out the ALP in every regional seat and take many seats from the languishing Liberals, headed by a former Brisbane Lord Mayor who as yet has no seat in Parliament.
