|Trio with B.O.|
CANBERRA : The Nixon Voodoogate years are upon us as fear, loathing and infighting grows in Coalition circles . On the Federal scene , there is leaking against the Prime Minister’s Office; Environment Minister Hunt , strangely , did not attend the Lima climate change talks ; even the right wing media and cheerleaders , to an extent , are turning against the Coalition. They could not turn a blind eye to the obvious disintegration .
In Queensland the polls continue to show that Campbell Newman will be ejected and many more LNP seats will be lost . It seems fanciful that the ALP could win enough seats to gain power, but you never know . An astonishing Brisbane newspaper claimed prominent LNP identity Dr Flegg , who recently lost endorsement for his safe seat in a bloody battle , was subjected to voodoo!!!! In a number of break ins , a spooky voodoo doll was supposedly found in his house . Mind you, the walking dead is an apt decription for the LNP where there is obvious jockeying going on over Newman’s body .
In the Northern Territory, where the Tory brand goes under the name of the Country Liberal Party, the disarray and infighting is patently obvious , Chief Minister Adam Giles is in deep strife after sale of TIO . There is tag wrestling within the ranks .
If a wild rumour heard in Darwin is true , it is another case of déjà vu of which modern journalists would not be aware . However , a person trying to pass on the information as a news tip , which used to be part of basic news gathering , was given the bum’s rush by a media chappy who seemed more interested in Kardashian handbags and suchlike crap. Darwin journalists also appear to be deaf to or unaware of another scandalous situation down the track . Strange blundering by key people in industrial talks , somehow , is not picked up by the local scribes . Where are the contacts, the rounds the getting out the office and nosing about ? It is a situation ripe for a troppo Deep Throat to regularly meet a journo in one of Darwin’s dark carparks to whisper news tips ... and hand out a free handbag as a reward .
NEXT: The march of the zombies on the Queensland election trail and the battle for the ADF vote in Darwin and Townsville .
