In Darwin there is talk of starting at least one new political party because of the bumbling performance of the Country Liberal Party , soon to face a by-election due to the resignation of a former Chief Minister, Terry Mills , and its hard line attitude to workforce pay and conditions . There is so much anger in the rural area of Darwin over the government’s slash and burn response after an outbreak of freckled banana that growers and supporters may also form a protest party. Imagine the NT FRECKLED BANANA PARTY ? It is not so silly as it sounds as already the nation has been sold a PUP outfit , a small bunch which could peel back power federally.
The way conservative governments throughout the nation are performing , a lot of pollies are going to be kicked in the freckle at the next election . Polls continue to show the Newman LNP government in Queensland is likely to suffer a massive swing at the next election , the Premier, Campbell Newman , swept away in a tsunami of disapproval . The bungled handling of the Morwell coalmine fire must surely be the final nail in the coffin of the Victorian government . Just imagine how the residents of Beijing feel due to the tidal wave of made in Australia pollution , with much more to come via the Abbot Point expansion.
While some pundits are saying it is a foregone conclusion that Labor governments will lose in Tasmania and South Australia, the performance of the Abbott Government is increasingly unnerving the community at large - particularly in respect of jobs , wages , health care , education , environment protection , climate change - and will undoubtedly be reflected in the way those states votes . Already the polls are starting to show a loss of support for the Abbott regime , addicted to sloganising , syrupy assurances.
