Labor Party in Queensland no longer large enough to qualify as a Party. I can see 11/12 from my house.

MASSACRE! Australian Left records worst election result since Federation

 

Posted on March 24, 2012 by Editor | 8 Comments

 

Queensland has decisively rejected Labor, reducing them to a political rump which may not even achieve party status (10 or more seats in the new parliament).

 

While State issues have strong influence in State elections this is a severe repudiation of Labor and its National policies – notably the despised carbon tax and the assault on State revenues through an additional profits tax on mining States’ main exports of coal and iron ore (mainly afflicting Western Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia).

 

Watch for Federal Labor to blink and delay the proposed carbon tax until the next election (which they will inevitably lose short several industrial-grade miracles).

 

Politicians globally are likely to take this bloodbath as a warning – voters will not tolerate enormous and entirely pointless energy taxes imposed to “address” a problem which does not exist.

 

This is the beginning of the political demise of global warming, carbon constraint and energy rationing. Moreover voters have severely thrashed the anti-development Greens and obstructive environmentalism.

 

The people have spoken. It’s development all the way.

Bligh quits Parliament

 

Anna Bligh has quit the Queensland Parliament in the wake of Labor’s humiliating electoral defeat.

 

Ms Bligh told a media conference this morning Queensland had sent her and her government an overwhelming message.

 

Bligh said today was a “heartbreaking day” for the Labor Party in Queensland and the party needed to focus immediately on rebuilding.

 

“This is not a task that can be achieved with me at the head of the team or indeed as part of the team,” she said.

 

Her decision to resign from the seat of South Brisbane, which she has represented since 1995, will become effective on Friday.

 

Labor was last night reduced to between six and eight seats in the 89-seat Queensland Parliament in a debilitating defeat.

 

“This result is absolutely shattering for the Australian Labor Party. This is much more than a loss; it is without doubt a devastating defeat,” Ms Bligh said during her press conference today. (Brisbane Times)

Sadly the Labor Prime Minister Gillard lied to the Australian people over the carbon tax.

 

Despite emphatically stating she would not introduce the tax during the run up to the last election, she reneged and the tax scheme will be implemented as at July 1st. This despite massive opposition to the scheme by the Australian people.

 

Those broken promises have a familiar ring? Count on a reintroduction of carbon tax here if Obama gets another term, zealots do not give up, they go quiet and just bide their time.

Exactly why Great Leader seeks to imbue the EPA with complete & total power. They don't want them accountable, or subject, to Congressional oversight. That, my friends, is absolute Marxism/Fascism. :mad:
