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.”

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.

Legless and Powerless in the Global Storms?

Will Tony Abbott leave us

Some at the big end of town are worried that Mr Abbott may keep his solemn promise to repeal the carbon tax. No doubt they and their smart lawyers fear losing the clever green schemes that rely on ripping off tax payers, consumers and other businesses.

Australia’s wealth and jobs have always rested on three legs – mining and farming, making and processing things, and rich foreigners; in short, resources, manufacturing, and money from tourists and investors.

The Gillard carbon tax will white-ant all three legs.

Mining and farming rely on draglines, dozers, scrapers, trains, trucks, bulk carriers, tractors, generators, pumps and machines of all kinds. All need cheap reliable energy. Their energy comes from diesel fuel or coal powered electricity. A tax on carbon will sap their energy and reduce their ability to generate jobs and national wealth.

Our processing and manufacturing industries rely on cheap electricity produced from our marvellous deposits of coal and natural gas. Greens have demonised these national assets and their carbon tax will undermine all Australian industries. Investors always look ahead. Already the threat of a carbon tax has reduced the asset value of every base load power station in Australia. Already one of the biggest, running on Victorian brown coal, is reporting financial stress and may close. We cannot run steel works, refineries or big cities on sunbeams and sea breezes.

See: http://www.theage.com.au/national/carbon-tax-puts-heat-on-loy-yang-20111219-1p2kf.html

Australia is remote from most of the world, and tourists must travel vast distances to get here. They need planes, trains, ships, buses and cars, all powered by carbon energy from petrol, diesel or gas. The carbon tax will strike at the heart of this industry. Harassed by the carbon footprint harpies, tourists may choose to stay home and go camping in their own backyards.

Finally, Australia is leading the world with the most onerous and widely applied carbon tax. This is already deterring the foreign investors who for generations have risked their savings to create businesses and jobs in Australia. Even now, the threat of a carbon tax is increasing capital shortage and debt stress in Australia.

There is no good news in the carbon tax story – no climate benefits, no real jobs and more costs for consumers. And it is white-anting the three legs supporting the Australian economy.

Unlike the big end of town, thinking Australians are worried that Mr Abbott may renege on his solemn promise to repeal the carbon tax

That would really leave Australia powerless and legless in the global storms.

Grandmother’s Concern In Open letter To Gillard & Abbott


 

Grandmother Jenny Bell from South Australia lays it on the line with an open letter sent to Ms Gillard and Mr Abbott presenting her concern for Australia under either party in government. The truth contain in that letter is expressed by most of Australians outside the box of political party faithful still blinded by “BULLDUST” as our nation gathers momentum down the toilet with salvation fading daily

Jenny Bells Letter To Gillard & Abbott

You BOTH worry me! (In fact, both of your Political parties worry the hell out of me!) Over the last three years, I find myself becoming more and more fearful of the pair of you and between you, you are turning this country, into a place that I no longer feel at home in or feel a part of !
I watch you in parliament and no, not just the two of you, but every politician that I see, stand up in parliament sneering at each other and acting like children!!! (And if you were my children, I would be ashamed of you all, what an example to set!) Although you would like us all to believe, that  you are putting the needs of this country at the forefront, NEITHER of you are doing that, you seem more interested in “one-upmanship”, in scoring off each other and denigrating each other, to the detriment of this country and it’s people!!!It seems to be all about YOU as individuals and not about what you can DO for this country! It is fast becoming a place that I do not recognize as the place I always thought was the best place in the world to be!!! But no longer!!!

You are not listening to the people of this country!!!
And here in South Australia, your counterparts, are afflicted with the same disease, is it endemic in all politicians?
I am watching the deterioration of living standards in this country (and according to you, on a world stage we are doing better than most countries …REALLY???)…and yet the gap is widening between the” haves” and the “have-not’s “,  I see our homeless on the streets, our hospitals under funded and understaffed, our health system is an absolute mess and a  disgrace …and yet I see multi millions of dollars being sent off shore, in aid to other countries, before attending to this country’s needs!! I see the “selling off of the farm”, in large amounts, to foreign interests, (In every state) including water rights to foreign interests too – and WHY?Especially when you go to great lengths to tell us, that water is a finite resource and supposedly, we must ALL be careful with how we use it, so that we ensure we have it for the future?

Foreign interests “Fracking” for coal seam gas and riding rough shod over farmer’s rights to their own land AND USING QUESTIONABLE CHEMICALS,  (You don’t even KNOW what chemicals they use)  and possibly causing damage to the water table in the process!!!

And those foreign interests, I believe, do NOT have to pay anything in royalties, back to this country, for the first five years of their tenure … IS THIS CORRECT???

A Carbon Tax, (which you KNOW is just another tax) and which will make NO appreciable difference, to carbon emissions AT ALL! A tax,  which in spite of all your arguments FOR it, you are doing alone, when other major countries will NOT and DO NOT embrace it, or believe in it!!

All that will do for this country is put working families and small businesses behind the eight ball…. what planet are you on, if you think that your few hundred dollars a year, will make even a scrap of difference to the effect of the carbon tax on people? Blind Freddy can see the holes in that argument!!!!  Do you really think we are that dumb????

The CONVOY OF NO CONFIDENCE was real!!! …and I haven’t spoken to even ONE person, who would not have liked to be there if they could, but the tyranny of distance and /or work, was the only thing that kept them away, (myself included) …and you KNOW that only a part of the convoy was actually allowed to be in front of Parliament house and ON VIEW  …the rest were streets away, unreported by the media!!

For Mr Albanese to stand up in parliament and call it “THE CONVOY OF NO CONSEQUENCE “in his sneering tone,   shows just how out of touch with the people of Australia , you really are!!!! WE WOULD HAVE ALL, LIKED TO BE THERE!!!

DEFENCE. Because Americans are our Allies and we support them in Wars, Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, Afghanistan ….and you have sent our soldiers to those places and our soldiers fought for you and for Australia , ……..some coming home with terrible physical injuries and some with devastating Mental Injuries as well, BUT WHERE ARE YOU, WHEN THEY NEED YOU?????

Veteran’s Indexation to CPI only is a disgrace and is something YOUR Labor party, Julia, used as an election sweetener, to get the Veteran’s Vote …BUT YOU LIED!!!!!!

You never had any intention of honouring your election promise to them, and it WILL come back to bite you at the next election!!!! (And Tony, Liberals were NO BETTER, Howard had more than 10 years to “fix it” and didn’t!)
Veterans are not alone they have families, friends and supporters, who are heartily sick of the deception your party perpetrated on them, AND THEY ALL VOTE!!!! THEY are your obligation, first and foremost, and it is not your first obligation to give aid to every man and his dog overseas first!!! 
Look after your own FIRST!!!! Is this what you call SALUTING THEIR SERVICE???Have you any idea how sickening it is, for our Vets, to see you both, ( Labor or Liberal ) turn up to the funerals of our current young vets, for a photo opportunity, to be seen to be “caring”, in the public eye but only to turn your backs on them all,  when they need you???  (Just ask Breanna Till, an Afghanistan Soldier’s wife, how CARING this govt is!!!)And in light of what you DONT do, for our Vets, let’s talk about Multiculturalism.  People have come here from other countries for a better life, for more years than I have been alive (I am 65 years old!!)  My own family migrated here in 1883, from Germany and did find a better life. Pre and Post war immigrants have came for a better life, and settled in and became wonderful contributors to this country as did those who came here after the Vietnam War, all have contributed to the rich diversity of this country and some descendants have even fought FOR this country and they have become Australians and were glad to be, and they had NO handouts from our Govt either; they worked hard for everything!

I have never had a problem with all, or any, race of immigrants coming here. However, I DO NOW!!!

Please tell me why we have areas like Lakemba, where police do NOT, and will NOT go, for fear of their life?

Please tell me why we can no longer have religion in schools, for fear of “OFFENDING” someone?  (The latest little gem is that they are not having, or being funded, for “chaplains” anymore but “Counsellors”?)

Please tell me why religious Christmas observances, are no longer allowed in some schools for fear of OFFENDING someone?
 
Please tell meHOW Christmas decorations in some stores, might OFFEND someone?Please tell me why we have to have segregated days in some swimming centres, for fear of “OFFENDING” someone?
 
Please tell mewhy we have some RADICAL clerics, demanding Sharia Law in this country, yet if we were in THEIR country, this would NEVER be allowed?Please tell me why our laws need to be changed so as not to OFFEND someone??  



Please tell mewhy we are fast becoming a MINORITY voice, in our own country because of POLITICAL CORRECTNESS??Please tell me WHY, Australians cannot legally wear a face covering bike helmet into a bank and yet it is OK to wear a Burqa which covers the whole face?

And please tell me, WHY, when those people who want asylum here, can wreck our detention centres, as in Villawood and STILL be accepted here?

SO, in light of the above, WILL BOTH OF YOU ……Please tell me WHY, when some of our Vietnam Veterans FINALLY received (in the last 6 months) the recognition that they should have had, after the Vietnam War, (and which they received from the USA & South Vietnam,  during and immediately after the Vietnam War), that the families of those Veterans were refused assistance  by this Govt, to attend that award ceremony and yet this Govt ….flew, accommodated and even took on bus tours , to the families of asylum seekers, after the funerals of those who were killed, in the boat which sunk, off Christmas Island?

What does that say about just who are this govt’s priorities?? The Australian people that I speak to, have genuine concerns about becoming a second class minority in our own country and the reasons for it, are some of the above. Are you so blind that you cannot see this?

And no, I am NOT racist!!!… (If I did not like Catholics or Protestants, would I be considered racist??)  Of course not! Why is it that if we object to what is happening in our country, we are immediately labelled RACIST in an attempt to shut us up?? We are fighting Radical Muslims, in Afghanistan and Iraq, are we not?

I hear you say, “Yes but the Muslims we have here, are “Not like that “- well how would we know? Do we hear ANY of them coming out and speaking AGAINST radicals? I haven’t, have you??? Islam is not compatible with ANY of the values that we hold here in Australia! Are not the experiences of Britain, France, the Netherlands or Holland an example of that?   Why do you think it would be any different here? We even have an Australian born “radical”, whose message is, that Australia WILL become a Muslim country, under Sharia Law and that we had “better get used to it”.

Will both of you, grow some “Balls” and start sticking up for this country and its people??? We are the people who put you where you are and PAY you, to look after our interests!! ..And you are NOT doing that by any stretch of the imagination!!!
I would appreciate an answer, from both of you, if only to convince me that once again, I am not talking to a brick wall!

In case it has escaped both of you, I would like to remind you that, in Australia, the Government is FOR THE PEOPLE, OF THE PEOPLE and BY THE PEOPLE, you should never forget that because you sure have up till now!!!

Mrs Jenny Bell
