Deeper Throat

Here comes Bryan

Deeper Throat
The Left have tapped her on the shoulder I reckon to make Green the only choice for Bart. There is no-one else to promote (he wouldn’t dare further enrage the punters by bringing Konsman back from the dead) and he just can’t lump any more portfolio responsibilities on the existing ministers.

Bryan Green back in – the Phoenix rises! Poor Alison, way out of her depth. Her ambition has always been greater than her talent for politics.

The Left have tapped her on the shoulder I reckon to make Green the only choice for Bart.

There is no-one else to promote (he wouldn’t dare further enrage the punters by bringing Konsman back from the dead) and he just can’t lump any more portfolio responsibilities on the existing ministers.

The day they cut the numbers without putting a unicameral parliament in place was the end of good governance in Tasmania.

The other option would be to appoint under-achiever extrordinaire Brenton Worst (oops, I mean Best) as the Speaker of the House and give Polley a portfolio of say, Local Government, Sport, Rec and Racing.

He has the experience and the networks and is a hard man of the ALP.

The Government MUST introduce Legislation to increase the members of parliament back to 7 per electorate (the voters would have to support that as they have now experienced the dismal outcome of having less members).

After the next election when Best and Kons lose their seats, Polley can have his Speakers job back and with any luck labor will be able to attract some worthwhile candidates capable of being good Ministers from the start.

Interesting times indeed!

    If Bryan Green was so well intentioned and only made ‘a bit of a blue'(his words), why did he go to such great lengths to avoid telling Parliament what he had actually done? I recall a member of the opposition suggesting that getting the truth from Bryan Green was like ‘extracting teeth’.

    The idea of promoting Brian Green to high office has been mooted, it should not happen now or at any other time in the future, assuming he wins a seat in 2010. Why? My answer stems from Green’s answer to question from a member of Legislative Council Committee on senior appointments. In his answer Green stated that “had he known that signing the TCCI document could have been illegal” he would not have done it. Green said this with his usual disarming smile apparently oblivious to the fact that he was admitting to his own gross incompetence – of course he should have known – he was a Minster of the Crown it was his job to know.

    Has Green never heard that ignorance of the law is not a valid defense. Would Green buy or sell a house without having the documents checked by his lawyer?

    For all I know Green may be a great guy, a nice guy to spend a day fishing with but he was clearly grossly negligent and therefore not someone who should be in charge of anything more senistive than a jam sandwich.

    Here comes Bryan reminds me of Jack Nicholson in Kubrick’s epic thriller, “The Shining”. Jack plays ‘Johnnie’ the part of the ever-smiling, over-confident, brash dude who turns into a psychopath swinging an axe at his wife and child. With devilish intent he screams through a splintered door…..”Here comes, Johnnie”.

    Heaven help Tasmania to get smiley-Green back as a Minister of the Crown…but as we all know, smiles can be very so seducing!

    You mean, bringing Bryan back “wouldn’t enrage the punters”? This punter would certainly be enraged. What about Lisa?
