Loss Leader

Saw an interesting post of twitter implying Clive Palmer may have been a Liberal shill this Election. The UAP ran with some solid US vs THEM messaging that is expected from Clive and his ilk, and wouldn’t be tolerated if it was directly done by any of the major parties as blatantly.

Election Woes

My poor brain is breaking trying to figure out why this election is so close! How are the coalition not being trounced. What did Labor do so wrong in Queensland?

Election 2019 Update 2

37% of people voted before the election, either via postal vote or pre-polling. Crazy.  In the last State election we postal voted, in this one we pre-voted.

An Honest Government Ad

Just in case we need to be reminded going into the election… don’t vote for Liberal they do not have your interests at heart and they can’t be swayed, they are being infiltrated and influenced by religious groups who don’t pay taxes and at least one group that doesn’t even vote, but puts money in… Continue reading An Honest Government Ad
