Once upon a time in the land of fairies lived a great serpent. It was a lonely existence being the only snake in the grass in his region. He longed for the days when he was the great anaconda living within the great hall Spring Street. Today as he slithered amongst the rotten apples strew about his ivory tower in 60 Collins street surrounded by sycophants comprising of Whisperers, Rainbow warriors, generals, the odd dingo, Clans of the dark Side, a number of Janus Brotherhood Wannabes, Cloned pseudo Liberals, Wizards, False Prophets, Gurus, Water Nymphs and Information Junkies, he pondered his next assault on the Eastern provinces.

His first move was to defy the almighty Kahoona based in the Golden castles of Mount Olympus in Canberra. His second move was to demonstrate how tough he was by telling all his old mates that early pre-selections will be conducted. His third move was to confuse and mislead the grass root villagers with support from the Constitutional Committee. His fourth move was to Let loose his Sherriff the State Director onto the grass roots with the national code of conduct. Finally his final move was to suppress all criticism and negative expressions of opinion about his performance and that of his group of sycophants by putting forward a motion to suspend a long time grass roots soldier.
Like Chairman Mao Tse Tung who cut off all the flowers that dared raise their heads above the fields of corn during the Cultural Revolution; the great serpent introduced the same fate for those who dared show any signs of freedom or behaviour that was not in his interest. He created the hybrid clone of a Mule, Ass and a Donkey otherwise known as the MAD Sycophant. A perfect vehicle upon which to create panic, havoc and despair. The only problem with the MAD Sycophant was that it could not get its act together to achieve the objectives the great serpent wanted. The Mule wanted to go to the left, the Donkey to the right leaving he poor old Ass in the middle torn between the two.
Today, the great serpent and his sycophant followers slither and slide through their ivory tower at 60 Collins Street monitoring the erosion of supporters silently leave the premises to greener pastures. This weekend will be the first of many blows to descend upon the great serpent as the grass roots go to vote for their candidate in the South Eastern Kingdom. In March of this year, another blow will descend upon the great Serpent when grass root members cast their votes in the Eastern provinces.
Then at the gathering of the grass roots at the Ivory tower in Collin Street, near mid march the great serpent is going to try and suspend a long time member from the clan of Liberals as a demonstration how powerful he truly is. This demonstration of power by the great serpent will not bring the riches that he believes he is entitled to nor will it raise him to his previous status of the great Anaconda that he once was.
However the great serpent has forgotten that there are grass roots members still around who were one very close to him during his days as the great Anaconda and he did not raise an eyelid when they needed his support. These same grass root members have a very long memory and as such are working silently into the night to bring down the great serpent and remove him for his ivory tower. Whatever goes up must come down.
