Well done, New South Wales Liberals, well done.
You weren’t content with sentencing the people of NSW to years under the spineless nanny Premiers Boozey O’Forgetful, Twotter Greyhound and Chastity de Stadia.
You weren’t content with foisting Lord Waffle and his wife Rasputina upon the nation.
You weren’t content with soiling the centre-right with the incessant factional bickering between The Moist, The Unctuous and The Unlikeable.
You weren’t content with running from political debate and slowing the Left’s cultural and economic destruction by 20 or 30 minutes.
No – you had to do more.
You had to prove what we all knew. That at heart our rulers are exactly the self-serving, careerist status-hounds you told us you weren’t. That you carry not one ounce of integrity, not a semblance of a sense of duty. That you only seek to represent your own interests, not those of your party members, and certainly not those of your electorates.
You had to prove you cannot think beyond tomorrow, and if you could, you wouldn’t care.
Your one true act of goodness is to prove the popular rising across the West is right on absolutely everything.
I don’t know what form The Beast will take. I don’t know who will get to choose its form. It could be a person, or it could be an event. I don’t know when it will be. But The Beast will come.
And NSW Liberals, no one will defend you.
