To lose one soulless socialist grifter seems like bad luck. Two grifters looks like carelessness. Three or more looks like Berlin in 1945. Gillard loses a parliamentary secretary, too | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

Gillard loses a parliamentary secretary, too | Herald Sun Andrew Bolt Blog

Julia Gillard buried one more bit of bad news in today’s press conference to announce the resignations of Nicola Roxon and Chris Evans.

Justine Elliot - a Rudd supporter - has quit as parliamentary secretary for trade.

The ostensible reason, offered by Gillard, is that Elliot was campaigning against coal-seam gas and felt a conflict with her work as parliamentary secretary for trade, touting that same stuff.

Thin excuse. How much of the trade portfolio involves coal-seam gas?

Gillard, Evans and Roxon all claimed today’s resignations had been mooted privately over the past 12 months. Yet it was only in December 2011 that Roxon accepted the job of Attorney-General.
And if these resignations were in the works, why delay the announcement until just days after declaring the September 14 election date? That declation was meant to project stability and “certainty”. Then come resignations giving exactly the opposite impression.

Stupid barely covers it.

Gillard says she knows of no more resignations to come, and expects this to be the ministry she takes to election:

... this is the team I intend to take to the next election.
Let’s see,

Silky smooth political skills there, champ.
