It is now clear there will be no successful No Confidence motion or any motion to remove Craig from the House for even a day. Windsor and Oakeshott and Gillard will put up a motion recommending a referendum on future parliamentary rules and Katter and Brandt and Wilkie may or may not vote for it, and the Liberals will certainly vote against it.
And yet the headlines suggest the Government is at imminent risk of overthrow. This was never going to happen. Oakeshott, Windsor, Wilkie and Katter knew that their power to influence events will end at the next election and they were never going to hasten the day of the vanishing of that power nor give up the money they would lose when Abbott, PM, sprang an early election in, say, July.
It was obvious they were never going to do that. Yet the papers, sensing a good Budget, cried crisis, extinction, hookers, homosexual harassment, cabcharge fraud and the rest of it, as though the expenditure of half a million dollars outweighed the expenditure of a trillion dollars. How creepy and corrupt are they.
And a man not fit to run an international company is printing polls he has paid well for which show his enemies doing badly. Why should we believe those polls? Why?
And why would we imagine families getting two thousand dollars in the mail in the next three months would vote against getting the same amount next year? Why would they?
This has been classic Murdoch sliming and fabrication, as in Bigotgate, Iguanagate and the blowjob-rape they charged Strauss-Kahn with, denying him the French Presidency.
While Rupert has breath in his body, he will continue this cheating, this persecution of innocence, this foul play.
Prove that I lie.
