Out with the trash: Roxon tipped to quit…

Ding dong, the witch falls on her own broomstick……

Andrew Bolt:

Abandon ship!

Roxon has demonstrated this past year how inadequate she is for high office. Her vitriolic attacks on Tony Abbott made her seem shrill, but far worse was her outrageous attempt to introduce wide-ranging new laws to restrict debate on politics, race, religion and even “social origin” that might give “offence” and “insult”.

She has been an almost completely negative factor for the Government – the Minister for Hectoring and Censoring – and her departure will disappoint very few. Sadly, her mooted replacement, Mark Dreyfus, promises little better.

One senior Labor MP told The Weekend Australian late last night that “Rome is burning”…

There’s lots of quitting going on:

Evans quits

Why does Evans say he’s quitting just two days after Gillard’s election call? He must know how terrible this looks for the Prime Minister, especially with Robert McClelland also announcing he’s off.

Evans, a British-born former union official who seems a very decent man, presided over Labor’s deadliest disaster – scrapping the Pacific Solution. This lured so many people back to the boats that up to 1000 people drowned and 17,000 arrived just last year alone.

Evans said at the time:

We abolished the Pacific Solution. I’m absolutely proud of that.

Just what Australia needs:

Fairfax promoting trufer crapola

Tim Blair

Fairfax is running ridiculous truther propaganda. Here’s how this load of lies is being promoted on the Age‘s front page:

This is the third time time that Fairfax has presented hours of truther conspiracy theories.

Update:

PRIME Minister Julia Gillard will announce her Cabinet reshuffle at 11am this morning after a dramatic night of resignations that have rocked the government.

Ms Gillard will hold a press conference at Parliament House with outgoing Attorney-General Nicola Roxon and outgoing Leader of The Government in the Senate Chris Evans.

The reshuffle is expected to see Victorian MP Mark Dreyfus, a parliamentary secretary, move into Roxon’s portfolio and Immigration Minister Chris Bowen take over Senator Evans’ portfolios of higher education, skills, science and research.

Housing Minister Brendan O’Connor is likely to be handed Mr Bowen’s old portfolio.

Deputy Senate leader Stephen Conroy is being viewed as the frontrunner to replace Senator Evans as the government’s leader in the Senate.

  1. Politicians have caused the mess we are in.
    To deliberately allow millions of Muslims into the country, to specifically rub our noses in the dirt, is so vile, that calling it treachery does not do justice to their act.

    Quote: We abolished the Pacific Solution. I’m absolutely proud of that.

    And are they sorry? Thats the great thing about being a politician – you never have to say sorry. In fact, they always congratulate themselves.

  2. @DP111,

    Brillant though!

    “And are they sorry? Thats the great thing about being a politician – you never have to say sorry. In fact, they always congratulate themselves.”

    Remember, there was a time, not too long ago (the 90’s) when politicians would leave office if they were outed for something shameful or disgraceful?

    Now, they just apologize. lie about learning from their mistakes and promise to do better next time.
