She's like a fucking Timex. She just keeps on ticking.
Yes former erstwhile mother of the nation, who slept each night in a flag so it could be her funeral shroud when murdered, has announced the formation of the 'Pauline's United Australia party' to contest the next election. I wonder if this one too has its constitution adapted from that of a local tennis club?
Let's see the article here.
Hooray! (throws hats into air).
Unfortunately for Pauline the Libs stole and used and won elections with her policies such as temporary protection visas for refugees no matter their circumstances, end to ATSIC, and a whole host of other bullshit. Hell I think citizenship tests were her idea.
She's apparently gone the "party" route so she can go above the line on Senate ticket because only political geeky mofos like me bother to vote below the line. Here's one of her many wonderful policy approaches as per the article.
"Mr Howard has sold us out by not halting further Muslim immigration and dumping hapless refugees from Africa on us without any consultation. Australia must withdraw ASAP from the 1951 UN Convention on refugees."
Ahh Pauline. You are truly great. Keep on battling my little battler.
Pauline by the way stood as an independent for the Senate last time and received $199,866 from the tax payer. Her "expenses" were apparently less than 36k (see footnote 31).
Gee. I wonder why she is running?
