The future of Australian politics – no girls allowed.

Kelly O’Dwyer and Julie Bishop are retiring from Australian politics at the next federal election to be held this year. One would think that the preselection process for conservative candidates for their two plum seats would be vigorous but it turns out that the only people with a look-in are those of the female persuasion, or at least those who identify as female.

Liberals in search for a woman to replace Kelly O’Dwyer.

Four women eager to step into Bishop’s shoes.

The Liberal Party is searching for another woman to replace the frontbencher in her blue-ribbon Melbourne seat.

Ms O’Dwyer, who is also the Minister for Women, is one of the most senior women in the Coalition government.

Both Ms O’Dwyer and Prime Minister Scott Morrison said they wanted a woman to be preselected for her job.

“This seat will be represented incredibly well by one of the very talented people who come forward and I have no doubt that it will be a woman,” Ms O’Dwyer said on Saturday.

It’s the old maxim – once women get their hands on something then it seems that it is destined from that point on to be women’s property into perpetuity. How else to explain this strange insistence that a seat in parliament is owned by women once someone with tits has put her stamp on it.

This push to make sure that seats become female is underscored by the growing insistence in Australia that there must be more women in parliament because somehow that will make things better. What is of course left out of the discussion is the fact that the political record of female politicians in Australia is nothing short of abysmal. There has not been a single female politician of relevance who has made her mark as being astute at the political process, let alone a politician with a glowing track record.

The Guardian ran a piece last year decrying the so-called gender gap in Australian politics.

But when one looks at the breakdown of women in safe or even fairly safe seats, the barriers to women flourishing in politics – in either party – become a little clearer.

Both major parties have a preponderance of women in marginal seats. This means their lives in Canberra are going to be spent with one eye on their future survival and how they are being perceived back in their electorates. Energy must be spent on the local, not the big picture.

Safe seats, on the other hand generally mean job security, longevity and an ability to focus on political advancement within the party rather than survival in the electorate.

Politics in Australia is not about serving the electorate and striving to obtain the best possible outcomes for the populace. Rather it is about furthering women’s careers, their job security, and ensuring that they progress up the ranks to the glorious pinnacle of leadership. Because Julia Gillard, Carman Lawrence, Joan Kirner, Clare Martin, Anna Bligh, Lara Giddings, Kristina Keneally, and Anna Palaszczuk were all such glorious successes at the top jobs, right?

Actually they were all, and in the case of Palaszuzuk still are miserable failures. It seems that the approach to female politicians in Australia is rather similar to the implementation of socialism; all those other times that it failed was down to it being implemented incorrectly. This time we’ll get it right for sure.

It turns out that women are simply unsuited for a life in politics. This is because of the fact that they are no good at it, (and I simply point at their collective track records to underscore my point), but also because they are unsuited to the process itself. Back to O’Dwyer and her reasons for resigning.

Deputy Labor Leader Tanya Plibersek said the departure of the Industrial Relations Minister highlighted the Liberal Party’s dearth of female representation.

“It’s a tough life and we do it because we want a better country for our kids,” Ms Plibersek, a mother of three, told reporters.

“When you get a critical mass (of women) it does change the culture.

“The difference is, we set targets. If you don’t set targets and you don’t make it a priority, nothing changes.

“I don’t think it’s fair to put the pressure on people like Kelly O’Dwyer.”

Women simply can’t handle the pressure of the burden of public responsibility of this type. On the contrary, not only is it fair to put pressure on a Federal government minister such as O’Dwyer, but it is expected. They are after all responsible for the security of our nation. They’re supposed to stand firm if bombs are dropping around us. But apparently the expectation that our female politicians must not only be put under pressure but respond well to it is simply unfair. Which is natural when you remember that female politicians are in it purely for their careers, not so much for the other icky stuff like making sure that Australia doesn’t become a third world South Pacific basket case.

I’m sure that nations such as China and India are watching our political debasement with glee, if not actively engaged in supporting the process. Maybe they’re just waiting for the moment when we have a female prime minister, a female defense minister, and a military headed entirely by female leaders. At that point they’ll just be able to roll right in; after all, our glorious female leadership will simply roll over while loudly screeching that expecting them to handle any type of pressure is unfair.

Any serious contenders on the Right side of politics in Australia would do well to make a point of not having any female politicians in their ranks. An announcement of the sort that a party not only does not have any female candidates but that they actively make sure that it is a male only domain would generate all sorts of negative publicity in Australia. The media would go barking mad. But any publicity is good publicity as far as politics is concerned, and since voting in Australia is compulsory, (an abomination in of itself), then a party courageous enough to say no more to the forced incursion of women into politics would do very well indeed with the silent majority.

And a new party is where the battle will have to be fought. The Liberals are lost because they made the mistake of letting in women in the first place. It’s time to found new right wing parties in Australia and their first rule must be that it is a boys club. In other words, no girls allowed.

  1. Allen

    The rallying cry of the stupid, “We need more incompetence, especially at the top.” One thing I’m certain of in this life is that some people, no matter their sex, will be abject failures.

  2. Do you still think Margaret Thatcher was a good PM? She voted for abortion and took the UK into what would become the EU. She just got lucky with Aregentina messing up the Falklands invasion.

    How are you going to get women to vote for a party which doesn’t have women MPs? The feminists will run a hysteria campaign and tell women if that party gets into power women will lose their right to abort and divorce. Unacceptable!

    • I think that the number of Australian women who would quietly vote for such a party would be quite high. Of course, the fact that the automatic assumption is that women will only vote for women regardless of policy or ability also says a lot about why it was such a mistake to give women the vote.

  3. Peter

    I’m of the opinion that it’d be successful to insist that when a party says “We need to mandate x positions for >insert minorityinsert majority< being displaced". They'll howl how that's not needed to which the retort will be "then it won't hurt either".

    There must be one Aboriginal = There must be one Aboriginal and one White person who can trace their both branches of their family tree to Britain and have been in Australia for at least three generations

    • Peter

      I don’t know WTF happened to my post /shrug

      Should read “We need to mandate x positions for ->insert minoritymajority<-

      If they mandate ONE woman. Mandate ONE woman & ONE man. If they mandate ONE left handed lesbian, mandate ONE left handed lesbian & One right handed heterosexual male.

  4. Behind Enemy Lines

    …the political record of female politicians in Australia is nothing short of abysmal.

    That is generally true of male politicians, as well. But at least there’s hope for male politicians, because they have to demonstrate the ability to do more than sit down to pee.

    At this point, the Libs are such a wet-left mess that an insurgent third party of political spoilers is the best we can hope for. But it’ll take some interesting alliances to get seats in parliament. For example, the muslims have the exact right idea about the proper place in society for women and homosexuals. And the Chinese have an admirably realistic sense of what it takes to wrestle political power from the insane left wing.

    In the end, I sense that in our fight against the bioleninist coalition we’re going to have to choose between allying with either Islam or the Han. Those three strike me as being the main contestants in the contemporary battlefield of Australian politics. All three of them are natural enemies. No major fourth group has such a relentless sense of will-to-power. Certainly not heritage White Australians.

    How we get temporarily on board with one of those divisions of the Free Shit Army, and avoid being dragged down by them in the end . . . I dunno.

    • Dave

      It’s impossible to ever get away from the lib-lab-greens situation due to Australia’s use of the preference system, when you throw in the dumb-ass white Australians, who on mass, vote directly for their own replacement and annihilation the question has to be asked do they deserved to be saved from their own stupidity?

      I’ve given up trying to convince most whites I know, as they are just two indoctrinated by the mainstream media.

      • Independent George

        I find humans in general to be a dumb, still primitive species. It’s no wonder it is hard for so many to eek out a reality to something resembling an objective truth. Add on to that our cultural transformation into a victimhood/grievance mongering utopia the problem is very much ahead of us.

        We gotta take back our education system, media, and government.

    US senator Joni Ernst has an entertaining divorce taking place right now.

  6. Post Alley Crackpot

    I dunno …

    Natasha Stott Despoja at least stood up to John Howard and the rest of his gang who wanted to cram the GST down everyone’s throats in Australia twenty years ago.

    She actually stood her ground and refused to back down on commitments made during the run-up to the election, and she didn’t give up until the vultures across all parties looked like they were going to pick her clean.

    Of course, she’d made the mistake of believing that Australian politics involved “civil discourse” instead of involving a bunch of rowdy hooligans trying to fuck each other in the arse with switchblades, so there’s that.

    But what’s she doing now?

    Yes, I rather do get your point.

  7. Dave

    Adam, you forgot to mention Joan Kirner….. who barely lasted two years through 1990-1992 as Victoria almost went broke during the recession we famously had to have..

    Anyway the ABC at it again….

    • No, I definitely mentioned Kirner.

      • PB

        That hag was the one who introduced speed cameras to the country after waiting for a wet weekend for political cover. Treasonous Bitch is hopefully burning in Hell.

      • Dave

        That’s the trouble with booze 1st, read Adam’s blog 2nd…

  8. Would Australian hate speech laws prevent someone from starting this party? Seems like there are pretty significant restrictions on what you can and cannot say. I wonder if they’d extend this to stop it.

    Love the graphic. Every significant male space has been destroyed, from Augusta to the Virginia Military Academy.

    • Dave

      There are a few alternative parties if you google around – the issue is not another party…. it’s the god dam stupid whites who keep voting themselves towards the 9th circle of hell. You can’t change their brainwashed minds, I’ve had hours of conversations with some and in the end they still can’t see what’s in store for them in the future.

      You can show them graphs, immigration numbers based on race from the ABS, births & deaths figures, the growing no-go zones in NSW & VIC, it makes no difference and this May these white morons will again throw themselves onto the sword yet again.
