JOY TO THE WORLD.....THE IDIOT IS GOING!

MIKE Rann has been ordered by ALP factional powerbrokers to step down as the Premier of South Australia by August 31.

If Mr Rann does not resign then he would face a leadership ballot, which he would likely lose in what would be a humiliating end to his 17-year leadership of state Labor.

 

Mr Rann is not aligned to any faction.

 

The Premier’s principal adviser Rik Morris tonight told The Australian Online that he could not comment but he had returned from annual leave to deal with the crisis.

 

The ABC tonight reported that when told of a cross-factional deal yesterday to replace him with the Left’s Jay Weatherill over the winter break of parliament, Mr Rann reacted angrily and made several threats.

 

“Words were uttered along the lines of ‘I’ll make more noise than Kevin Rudd’,” ABC radio political journalist Angelique Johnson said during a special broadcast that cut into Saturday broadcasting of AFL.

 

The Australian Online contacted dominant Right factional powerbroker and Industry Minister Tom Koutsantonis tonight but he refused to comment on the situation.

 

“The Australian is the only phone call I have answered today, but I have to go,” he said.

 

Senior Labor sources told The Australian Online Mr Rann was confronted with the ultimatum to step down or be pushed by union boss Peter Malinauskas and Treasurer Jack Snelling. Both men are not returning calls.

 

Mr Rann denied he had been told to stand aside before flying out to India this morning for a government trade trip.

 

It is understood Right-aligned John Rau, the Deputy Premier and Attorney-General, would remain in his roles.

 

.......don't let the door hit you in the arse on the way out.

 

SOUTH AUSTRALIA'S BIGGEST BOZO THE CLOWN PREMIER OF ALL TIME.......his love for this state was measureable by the contempt he showed the people ho so called represented....

Jay Weatherill......not the best but would have to be at least half as bad as Mike Rann....making him twice as good.

 

Either way....when Rann goes....we all win.

i'm not entirely convinced that this is doing more than temporarily appeasing the masses. i mean sure, there'll be some kind of change in leadership strategy, otherwise it would be pointless booting rann in the first place, but at the same time, we're really not in any better position with anything. the current projects will not be put on hold, which means that they'll still bleed away at the budget. there will be no more investment in projects, because they don't have any money and they can't fix anything budget wise before the next election anyway. really, they're ousting the dead leader of a dead government in a dead state.

 

we have a new opportunity for the motorplex to be passed, because it's probably the only project out there that doesn't require state funding, but if it does happen, i urge you all to not forget labor's mistakes to date.

swapping out Rann for a leftist would probably make things even more problematic for us :P

 

Not until the labor party itself is out will things be improved (if only marginally)

Still doesn't change the fact they will probably lose the next election. They replaced Rudd with Gillard and we all saw how that turned out. So the same could be expected of our State govt.

Changing one puppet with another, I don't think much will change. It's all about the cabinet and the make up of it and their interests and their vested interests by lobbyists.

 

tl;dr not much will change without an armed revolution.

best quote i've seen so far:

"The change in leadership is in the interest of the party, not the state."

i'd prefer if he would stay on. nothing is going to change with a new premier, and they'd have a greater chance of losing the next election with rann.

.....are you all joking? No seriously.....unless I am very much mistaken.....wasn't it Rann who personally poo pooed the idea of any sort of motorsport development program outside the stupid endless spending at the Clipsal 500? Wasn't he the guy that rooted companies like Bianco and then allowed kids porn watching PM's into public office.

 

This guy is the 'SPEAR HEAD' of the idiots running the state at the moment.....and what happens when the head of a snake is cut off? Jay Weatherill is a bit of a tool....but not to the scale Mike Rann is.

 

I have had personal dealings with Jay and his office.....I must admit he was proactive in my encounter with the man. I'm not about to sing his praises....but damn he is a better proposition that Rann is that's for sure.

 

If Foley goes then as far as I am concerned the major hurdles for forward movement....and the two solo reasons why this state is so far in reverse will be removed. We are a laughing stock on a national basis....and the labour power brokers realise this. Remove Rann....remove Foley....install a new leader.....put some hope back into doing something positive with this state and lets shift out of 1st gear...

 

The Election will be what it will be......now it's up to the Liberal outfit to offer something more attractive and TANGIBLE to the Labour money grubbers.

P.S. - If you want to really know Mike Rann's true colours....watch his departure....watch were he goes...what he does....how he benifits etc etc....this is the true test of his exit strategy. John Olsen gets done for fraud...quits his seat and ends up as the South Australian attache to New York....fully funded and paid to sit in a major US city doing what exactly??????? Rann's milking of this state isn't over just yet.

Another point I'd like to make, is that, there's a Left and a Right and within both major factions there's an internal left and right however there's still no social cohesion and progression set in place. I'd like to be proven wrong, that there are things in place to allow people to prosper rather than having people warmongering over their wage and position (as demonstrated in politics and education and more than likely any job with a traditional structure).

 

Perhaps the top tier of Politics should realise that people follow by example and change occurs from the top and branches down, maybe if they understood that what they do influences everything else - the quality of life would improve.
