Skip to comments.MASSACRE! Australian Left records worst election result since Federation
Posted on 03/25/2012 3:16:01 PM PDT by maddog55
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. Its development all the way.
Renaissance. Let it spread.
Being relatively isolated, Australia is like a petri dish for ideas. So glad they have demonstrated and retained their (Western; English-speaking) common sense.
i guess that means julian aussange is back to pimping hacked documents.

It’s a beautiful day, eh mate!
Let’s hope this is a harbinger of things to come here.
Woot! Australia!...go! go! go!
(mainly afflicting Western Australia, Queensland, New South Wales and South Australia).
Perth, Brisbane, Sydney (capital of Canberra), Adelaide
Now let’s see what they can do with it!
If they go bad, like in Alberta, then they need their own WhiteRose Alliance to give them a kick
Aussies are awesome!
How many Aussie FReepers do we have on board?
“Lets hope this is a harbinger of things to come here.”
Agreed, agreed. I read the other thread on this and one of the linked articles there described it as a “bloodbath”, and plainly that is an accurate description.
“Aussies are awesome!

Just last night I heard that my daughter, back in Memphis,
might be moving to Australia.
No details or reason yet.
Maybe she has a boyfriend there., or an IT job offer.
Were they able to get rid of that socialist carrot top woman leader?
Bookmark Australia as a possible place to flee to during obamao’s second term...
“When Black Friday comes, I’ll fly down to Muswellbrook....”
I sure hope our election goes as well in Nov.!
GRRRRRRRREAT news! HOORAY Aussies!
DEPOPULATE socialists/totalitarians from the body politic. Build on 2010. C’mon November
