A shot over the bow

Lieberals out of Pittwater! (image: SMH.com.au)Pittwater voters threw the Lieberals out of their 3rd safest, blue-ribbon seat in NSW- convincingly- with a massive and unprecedented 26% swing to Independent Alex McTaggart.

Was it JerkChoices? Terror laws? Brogden‘s last revenge? Or just that the NSW Lieberals are a bunch of hopeless fuckwits?

Pay attention, Mr Howard- Pittwater is your future.

Having read that a bitter former member of the party added to the demise of this seat – Do you think that Costello could be that person for HoWARd?

Suki, we can only hope that the Lieberals continue down the path of implosion, no matter which one of the selfish bastards may be at the root of that self-destruction.

Despite a more nebulous sense of national identity compared to other countries like the US & the UK, Australians DO have limits to the patience they have for bad government. I believe the Pittwater rout is the beginning of the end for this particular term of abusive and oppressive government in Australia.
