…from the quill of Antisthenes the Younger
As is the Queensland’s Opposition time-honoured habit, at the election time they make themselves invisible and hope to get elected by default. They have good reasons for this occasionally successful strategy. The less a voter sees or hears of those lacklustre wimps the better. The exception this time is the former Lord Mayor of Brisbane Campbell Newman; but out of necessity only. He became the leader of the Opposition Liberal National Party, on a principle that an one-eyed is the king amongst the blind, though not a member of the Legislative Assembly. He simply has to get elected.
Not surprisingly, the Opposition’s website is weak, bordering on contempt of the voters. It is the typical mishmash of high faluting language and nebulous promises expected from politicians whose only principle is power.
The uniformly pro-Labor media perhaps may be blamed to some extent, but that the media bias ought to have been obvious to the LNP “strategists” long time ago. The strategists in inverted commas, since it seems that for the would be leaders of Queensland the first and only strategic decision is a decision whom to marry.
