Gladiator tales – Victorian arena

Abalinx 28 February 2019 Peter Adamis

It is appropriate that on the last day of February, I am pleased to advise readers of information that may be of interest to those who follow the political gladiators in the Victorian arena.I can tell readers that on Monday the 25 February 2019, I received information that I found politically damaging to the current Administrative Committee as well as the recent alliances. 

Alliances that rose from the ashes of chaos and post-election dramas. I am referring to the Janus Network of Looney Left Liberals and their vagabond sycophants. Although the following is based on that information that has been conformed from four different sources, I leave it up to the readers to ascertain the truthfulness of each statement..

STATEMENT ONE.      The first statement was whether: “(Ian) Quick Sacked – Thank Goodness”. It appears that “word has it that the Burwood Electorate Committee has sacked Ian Quick as Chairman. He has also been sacked as Campaign Director. For months Quick was lecturing everyone about his genius campaign skills and how he would outperform everybody.

His Member of Parliament Graham Watt was beaten like everyone else because of our Federal friends but Quick had assured everybody he would outperform given his genius at IT. Looks like Tim Smith the member for Kew was the best performer in the area. His Kew team outperformed all those around him.” 

I have lost count how many times I spoke out against using American style campaigning techniques. Stating that such concepts were not compatible with the Australian political environment. Well Mr Ian Quick has proven beyond doubt what happens when you don’t follow political campaign paradigms. I have no pity whatsoever for Mr Ian Quick as he has fallen on his sword far too often and its time that he was carried of the political gladiator arena.  He obviously failed to get the thumbs up from the participants.  

As for his so called computer Information skills, all that I can say is that I have been working with Information technology since 1979 and even I still am learning that it is virtually impossible to keep up with the numerous developments in that field.

STATEMENT TWO.      It appears that there are calls for (Robert) Clark, Quick, Oxxxxx  and Hxxxxxxxx – Please go and go now.

The disastrous experiment of making a failed former State MP who lost his own safe seat the State President after Michael Kroger retired has got to end NOW before more damage is done. Word has it (Robert) Clark and co (company) cannot find candidates and haven’t raised a cent in three months in the lead up to the Federal Election. Oxxxx had to resign as Federal Seats Chair because potential candidates wouldn’t return her phone calls.

She now has no support in the Party and will be slaughtered at the State Council in June. At State Assembly word has it that she has 12 supporters out of 140 votes. Gxxxxx Hxxxxxxx isn’t faring much better. He is Oxxxxx sidekick and is also a certainty to be punted in June. Clark experiment getting worse by the day.”

STATEMENT THREE.              The inference to the Chinese Gang of four is a reminder of The Chinese Premier, Mao Tse Tung declining influence on the political scene and how the Gang of Four were running the country. The interesting part is that the Gang of Four had a very ignoble ending.

“The gang of four referred to above got whacked again at the Higgins Convention. After teaming up with Kelly O’Dwyer, Scott Ryan, Mitch Fifield, James Paterson and the toxic Melbourne University Liberal Club their candidate Zoe McKenzie got 25% of the primary vote. Kelly was there (which outraged everybody), so was her husband and so were 11 current or former staffers. Surely Ian Quick should have put a stop to this. So an ex staffer was supported by a dozen other ex-staffers still only got a quarter of the vote.” 

STATEMENT FOUR.                No one likes disloyalty, wannabee political tyrants and religious fanatics and it comes as no surprise to me to observe the downfall of those who undermined, Matthew Guy and Michael Kroger.  As the old proverbial political paradigm goes: what goes up must come down. The new regime is becoming frayed at the edges and it should not come as a surprise to anyone when those seeking power and glory over the bodies of others, fail to get elected at the upcoming State election. Do I feel sorry for them? Not a bit!  What I do know is that those in the know and who have used them will quickly cast them aside and forget about them.

“The Clark, Oxxxxx, Quick, Hxxxxx Group are losing positions all over the Party and are all headed for the door in June. Thank goodness. Ordinary Party members can again take over the Party as they did under Michael Kroger rather than being run by ex-staffers, ex MPs and the Anti-Gay Mafia. We need the middle ground not these fanatics.”

I am of the opinion that the above statements have their origins in the majority of Liberal party members, fed up and not appreciated for being taken for granted. I am not convinced that Robert Clark should bear the brunt of the grievances, as anybody who has been in leadership positions will certainly know that and realise that it is always difficult to fill the shoes of a charismatic leader.  As for the others mentioned above, I reserve judgement and will wait and see the outcome of the State Council.

Well that’s all from me, so until next time. Cheerio for now!  Life is what it is. Stay strong always and remember that despite the world being frayed at the edges, it is still a beautiful place.
