Oh the Newman-ity!

Oh the Newman-ity!QLD_CM_NEWS_NEWMAN_24NOV13

As we head towards the final week of the QLD election campaign, and the polls are, IMHO, reflecting more the views of Rupert Murdoch et al, than those of the wider QLD community, it’s only to be expected that Newman should suffer the slings and arrows of outrageous scrutiny, not to mention outrageous poetry, followed shortly thereafter by outrageous misfortune   😯   😉

I was going to call this one  “Oh the humanity!”, but there’s not a lot of humanity on display with Newman or the LNP more widely, but rather much ego driven self aggrandisement, and many unanswered questions over gross self interest, conflict of interest issues, and their litany of suspect, some would say corrupt, practices.   😈


Lies, general dishonesty, backflips and self serving policy direction are the hallmarks of  the Newman State governments first and hopefully last term of office, with the shadow of corruption  and conflict of interest, hanging over many of the ministers, from the top down, and threatening to blow the LNP wide open, with winning the only option for covering up their mendacious and corrupt dealings.

It’s very telling about a government, when their own start publicly crapping on them, like the extraordinary diatribe unleashed on Newman by that doyen of right wing nut-jobbery, Alan Jones   😯 with  other disaffected Liberals like Clive Palmer, and Dr Chris Davis adding to the chorus of discontent.   😯


So QLDers, you don’t have to believe us, take it from the LNP insiders, who know!   😉    But if you had believed us at the last election, we wouldn’t be in the mess, in which we now find ourselves   😡

So my fervent cry of despair, at the mere thought of another 3 years of this self serving and corrupt LNP government is;

Oh the Newman-ity!


Oh… the Newman-ity

Of self absorbed inanity

That’s enshrined in Newman’s vanity

And proves the mans insanity

He’s just a raving knob


On the subject of mendacity

Newman has a great capacity

For lying with Tenacity

And lacking all veracity

He’s not fit for the job


He’s a wrecker of ecology

With his whacko ideology

He suffers cash idolatry

And he owes us an apology

The little right wing slob


He’s stuffed the states economy

With spin and gross dishonesty

That’s expected from the LNP

And the hallmark of their polity

Lies flow freely from his gob


Our assets he’ll be “Leasing”

As by stealth our ownership’s ceasing

And our state he will be fleecing

While his palm, corporates are greasing

As hard questions, off… he’ll fob


He’s a little man who’s sleazy

And particularly greasy

With an arrogance that’s breezy

And corruption he finds easy

Cos he’s a crooked right wing snob


With his morals all but missing

Up the wall, our lives he’s pissing

As miners arses he is kissing

You can hear the serpent hissing

While insiders start to dob


His credibility’s lacking

And his smug demeanour’s cracking

We have to send him packing

Cos he really does need sacking

He isn’t worth two bob


His ideas must be rejected

And his party not selected

Cos we’ll all be so affected

As their corruption is perfected

And our future they will rob

      Hey Kate 🙂 thanks for that 😀

      In the middle of cooking tea, so I’ll reply more later 😉

      Cheers 🙂

        Hey Kate 🙂 believe it or not, it started out as an off beat limerick 😯 but once I got into it, it morphed into something else 😉 I read the first few verses to my mate yesterday, who though it had a Frank Zappa feel, and he’s a huge Zappa fan 😯

        I just wanted to write something a bit different, that captured the essence of the true Newman and his capacity for mendacity 😉

        Cheers 😀

          Goodness my gracous! I never would have guessed a Frank Zappa connection, but then I was never a big fan of his. Anyway, it’s a most refreshing and highly successful bash at a different structure.

            I’m not a huge fan either, but it certainly worked better than I thought it would 😯

              Zappa`s “Catholic Girls” is a Legendary Classic M8 😉


              • Truth Seeker says:

                Biggy, I never got into Zappa, as Tull was more my cup of tea, but my mate often wears a “Zappa on the crappa” T shirt, and quotes lines from songs all the time 🙄

                Although yesterday he was wearing a T shirt with “I’m allergic to stupid people” on it 🙂 and he reckons he’s wearing it again on polling day, and when an LNP’er offers him a how to vote card, he’s going to start sneezing, and point to the T shirt 😀

                He’s a bad man 😉

    Hahahaha I should be crying but the poem is so hilarious in it`s dark honesty 😆
    This is raw talent Truthy 🙂 and why not compose music to it and invite the Kransky Sisters from Esk in Queensland to assist in the performance,it would get you all on”Mad as Hell”
    All IMHO and Soz for the dribble 🙂
    And mate didn`t the Parrot give it to him 🙂
    There`ll be more believe me as Clive has to add something
    Hey and Brough is attacking Abbott from the back bench [how good is all this{ 😆
    Well done Truthy 🙂

    I can see a knighthood after this brilliant ditti (which you will of course reject, another slap in the mush for our tones).
    On the downside if Can’t do’s mob get back in without him, your passport to Qld could be revoked and a Manus island spot beckoning or Frazer island, not sure which gulag they have on tap for dissidents which is currently overcrouded with “I am with Stupid” tee shirt wearing protestors. Labor have a bloody big fence to jump. I will be requesting my rellies in Brisbane do the right thing to ensure the lnp are evicted, every little helps.

      Hey Bilko 🙂 thanks for that mate 😀

      Yes we wait with baited breath for the election and hope that the people rise up and say Newman and your lying and corrupt LNP… UFO! 😯

      I’m sure the LNP have got my room booked 😉

      Cheers mate 🙂

      Hey Brickbob 🙂 thanks for that mate 😎

      I didn’t know you were a muso, what instrument do you play?

      Yes mate, being a muso certainly helps when writing poetry,

      Sorry I’ve got to cut it short, but Charlie is nagging me to take him out for his last pee before bed 😯

      Will follow up another time. 🙂

      Cheers mate 🙂

    Well Truthy you did not get a gong or a mention after all but glory be our very own tones has done it again a “SIR” to Phil the greek as Julian Burnside says a demotion to Phil. Another anonymous LNP (are there any other types now) says Australia day and Australia is now a joke. From the line in the song “Send in the clowns” – don’t bother there here. Back to your post i hear the bikies are sending funds to Nooman to ensure he gets his just deserts. Welcome 2015.

      Hey Bilko 🙂 Mate I’ve been dudded 😦 I was hoping for a ratification of my nickname “Sir Coffalot” and I think Sir Truthy Coffalot has a nice ring to it 😉

      Yes mate, we just seem to go from farce to… High farce 😯 to the totally ridiculous 🙄

      What a good start to the year, with Abbott displaying his own brand of stupid, and Newman delivering his own special kind of stupid, based on Abbott’s 😯

      Maybe those two should get a room, and while they’re in it, we could lock and barricade the door 😀

      He also said that if the government gets back but some of their MP’s don’t, they wont be honouring any promises made in those electorates that go to independents or the ALP… WTF? There goes the last vestiges of democracy in QLD, with electoral blackmail as another LNP tool 😈 What ever happened to governing for all QLD’ers ❓

      Cheers mate 🙂
