Liar, liar, your pants are on fireplace!

It’s native election time once more in Queensland and politicians are out kissing small children, driving on tractors and planting bushes.
Liar, liar, your pants are on fire!
Liar, liar, your pants are on fireplace!

In different phrases, they’re seeking to pull the wool over our eyes. They’re additionally resorting to smear campaigns, digging up each and every final little nugget they are able to to check out and persuade an embattled public that they’re the extra deserving candidate. It’s unsightly in the market.

And the way out of contact they’re. Precisely how quick a reminiscence do they believe now we have? When is Anna Bligh going to prevent eating out on her tearful flood speech ie. “We’re Queenslanders…” I’m sorry, however I simply don’t purchase it. I’ve witnessed her toxic vitriol in parliament  – I generally tend to assume other people display their true colors underneath power and that, she did, going so far as suggesting her opponent, Campbell Newman was once destined for prison as a result of his trade dealings.

Any other factor, Anna, I ‘aks’ you with tears in my eyes … please learn to say ask. You’ve had sufficient practise via now.

I am getting that politicians need to persuade us in their prowess – in their power on the subject of adversity – in their skill to get the blinking task performed, however kissing hapless small children? A phrase of recommendation: don’t do it if it doesn’t come naturally. We aren’t taken in via photograph opportunistic poses. Young children are insightful little souls – few seem to in fact benefit from the prospect of being kissed or hugged via a political candidate. They’re slightly like animals in that approach, they see throughout the smarminess. They recognise authenticity.

And that’s slightly skinny at the flooring presently. Am I on my own in glazing over after they get started their coverage communicate, their coined words and empty guarantees of a higher, brighter long term for all “running households”.  Aren’t all of us running households? Sorry, most likely I’m cynical however the unhappy fact is, I don’t imagine a phrase they’re announcing.

And whilst I’m relating to kissing, we additionally stay unmoved via nice presentations of public affection, Mr Newman. I like that you just love your spouse and circle of relatives, however sufficient already! You’ll hang fingers, simply don’t smooch in public. Additionally, come blank on your entire trade dealings, please.

Most likely I can move with the mad hatter, Katter in any case … no less than he has a good pastime within the farming group.

In my view, I stay unmoved via nice presentations of sensitivity, of earnest shows of love, of teary speeches, of mine visits, of mingling with the crowds as a way to talk. Most likely the entire contemporary again stabbing throughout the Labour ranks has merely left a sour style within the mouth. Who to imagine? Politicians talk with forked tongues – the previous few weeks have proved that. What you notice isn’t what you get. What they are saying isn’t what they’re considering.

It’s going to take much more than a tractor journey or every other photograph alternative at a local tree planting rite to persuade me someone is a worthy candidate in any respect.

The Vegetables? Don’t like them both – dig a little bit deeper and also you’ll to find they’re no longer all about tree hugging and protecting the planet. They’re a little bit too conniving for my liking. Smarmy too.

Most likely I can move with the mad hatter, Katter in any case … no less than he has a good pastime within the farming group.

However there once more, he has been recognized for a marginally of foot in mouth so there’s nonetheless a variety of time for him do one thing downright frustrating – after which, I guess, it’s again to the strategy planning stage, or is that ‘drawring’ board, Anna?
