The resounding election win by Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk, must be ‘the sweetest victory of all’. She endured a massive campaign of bullying and intimidation by: the usual bias in the Murdoch media (Liberal-National party stooges); PM Scott (never my fault) Morrison and his minions; irrelevant, outdated radio personalities, (shock-jocks); political opportunists like Clive Palmer and Pauline Hanson, (serial pests); and a totally inept Queensland LNP opposition led by ‘deadly’ Deb Frecklington.
This convincing win by the Labor Premier vindicates her strong leadership in not prematurely opening up Queensland’s borders, against the best medical advice available and putting Queenslanders lives at risk. It must be a devastating loss for the Queensland LNP and their stooges who used every sleazy trick in the book to discredit her.
The LNP hasn’t improved much since the bad old days of the corrupt Bjelke Peterson National Party government (don’t you worry about that). Queenslanders can now rest easy with four more years of good governance without the extreme right-wing policies of the LNP, and Queensland’s strong environmental protection laws will remain safe. Realistically, there were only two choices: amateur hour with the coal-fired LNP, or a professional Labor government, like chalk and cheese really.
