Kicked out of government by the ALP at the last Northern Territory landslide election , the Country Liberals, reduced to two members and a pond full of croaking cane toads, are desperately trying to sign up new members. There was no sign of interest in the party's stand, above, at Fred's Pass in the Darwin rural area.
The Country Liberals are so desperate they are even trying to get young people to join , see YCL ( Young Country Liberals ) sign at back of bearded gent . It has been said that a bunch of old geezers in leather jackets , with masonic connections, pull the CL strings . Now that it has just been revealed that the odd Victorian Cormack Foundation contentiously donated $200,000 into the CL coffers to help it resuscitate , there may be a rush, especially by smart young Territorians , to join and share the loot .
Potential NT Young Country Liberals will undoubtedly look like these typical southern Young Liberals , appearing on the ABC TV ripper show, Shaun Micallef's Mad As Hell , except that they will mainly wear T-shirts, thongs , certainly no jumpers or cardigans , and no coats and ties ...pocket hankies !!!!
