No wonder Peter has resigned

It’s no wonder that Peter Lindsay is not going to recontest the seat of Herbert. Other than wanting to enjoy his full Parliamentary Pension and Gold Pass entitlements, he is clearly going a bit potty – or is that spineless?

His assertion in the Bulletin today that “…a second term government always loses” is patent nonsense – if there has been any trend in Australian Politics over the last few decades is the Governments’ get at least two terms.

His second statement that “Tony Abbott has correctly pointed out that it (the proposed ETS) is just a great big tax on everything” is just plain hypocrisy given his previous support for an ETS (for which he was dumped from the outer Ministry by Tony Abbott).
