Despite working really really really hard to create jobs jobs jobs for working families working families working families in NSW, the ALP looks set to undergo a crushing defeat in the upcoming state election (March 26), as ungrateful voters turn to the Tories for political salvation. Presumably, the victorious party will proceed to do to NSW what Kennett done to Victoria when he won office back in 1992. On a more positive note, the Kremlin’s Fifty Year Plan to take over the NSW State Government (hatched only a few years after Khrushchev gave his Speech) finally looks set to bear fruit as the
Reds Greens gain their first seats in the Legislative Assembly.
The Greens’ unstated goal of wrecking Western civilisation and imposing a one world government edges ever closer…
Sadly, it appears that the Communist Alliance will not be fielding any candidates at this election. Worse, Ron Poulsen (Communist League) appears not to be contesting for his local seat.
Still, the Socialist Alliance (SA) will be standing four Lower House candidates–Paola Harvey in Keira, Pip Hinman in Marrickville, Zane Alcorn in Newcastle and Duncan Roden in Parramatta–and no less than 21 candidates in the Legislative Council (Upper House).
The Socialist Equality Party is also fielding four candidates, two of whom–in the seats of Marickville and Newcastle–will be clashing with SA candidates:
The Socialist Equality Party calls on working people and youth to support our campaign and our candidates—Richard Phillips in Bankstown in Sydney’s south west, Carolyn Kennett in the adjoining working class seat of Auburn, James Cogan in the inner western Sydney electorate of Marrickville, and Noel Holt in the regional city of Newcastle—in the March 26 New South Wales (NSW) state election.
The ‘Australian Protectionist Party’ is fielding one, solitary, lonesome, single candidate–Nicholas Hunter Folkes in Balmain–while their rivals in the ‘Australia First Party’ are doubling APP’s efforts and fielding two: Tony Pettitt in Riverstone and Tony Robinson in Mulgoa.
A former One Nation Party (ONP) member, Pettitt has contested numerous elections: Greenway for ONP in 2004; Hawkesbury, on behalf of AF in 2010, Blacktown (Fifth Ward), in 2008 and Greenway (again) last year. He also stood for Australians Against Further Immigration in Mitchell in 1996.
One Nation in NSW appears to be dead-in-the-water, but I could be wrogn. (The Communist Mike Carlton reckons that the Liberals are ‘One Nation wrapped in a blue ribbon’ in any case, so perhaps all is not lost.) In February, the party apparently released the following statement:
As many already know One Nation NSW will not be contesting any seats at the upcoming state election. This is due to the fact that we are no longer registered in NSW, due in part to the resignation from the party of Pauline Hanson and David Oldfield in 2004. One Nation will not be in a position to reregister the party in NSW for at least 18 months.
Note: The Liberal Democratic Party in NSW will be appearing as the Outdoor Recreation Party (ORP) in the election. Blokes who like shootin’ ‘n’ fishin’ will be votin’ for the Shooters & Fishers Party (they gotsss two MLCsss and hatesss the nasssty Greensss for wanting to take preciousss rightsss to shoot and fisssh awaysss nasssty Greensssesss…).
