Queensland State election. 2009

I did my civic duty and voted.

My record is still unbroken. The last wiining candidate I voted for was Don Lane and he went to jail. In mitigation, I voted for him because he running against Santo Santoro and one of Santo’s aides had the gall to nail one of Santo’s posters to a tree.

The situation is back to Queenslands default state which is that of Labor. A Woman premier has managed to be re-elected. For centuries women have claimed (rightly) that they would be as good as men in politics, sadly they have been just as bad.

Premier Bligh will now try to fix the Queensland economy by digging another hole under the Brisbane river and using more wonderful public private partnerships. In all fairness I doubt much would change in these policies if we had Premier Springborg instead.

If the LNP had a weakness, it was their association with smaller government which means fewer jobs.

Considering the challenges that Australia and Queensland face, I wish all the best for Premier Bligh and may the Almighty bless her.
