Casey is just an opportunistic prick. I know plenty of people who voted for him during the presidential election purely because of what he said about the travelers. I watched loads of his interviews & debates, he was making it up as he went along. He hadn't a clue about any policies or how governments work. He had been living abroad & paying taxes in another country for years. And yet he got 300,000 plus votes. The whole thing was just blatant Trump style populism and a lot of people fell for it. Disappointing. I have no particular fondness for travelers but there is no way I would vote for the likes of Peter Casey. He should just STFU and enjoy his rich lifestyle.

I met a lot of fucking eejits around the time of the last election who kept saying "That Peter Casey's a great guy. He's not afraid to say what he thinks."

It's pretty clear a few of these idiots want to set the narrative for the election rather than offer something worthwhile. If they are successful with this we could be looking at a few political lost years like the Brits are having. Nobody can afford that.

thanks Leo. I suppose it is.


Incidentally we're now going to have people advocating for worse conditions because we're making it too nice for the economic migrants.

racist gets called a racist.

As if we weren't also a tax-haven on top of everything else.
So far as I can see he has nothing left to offer as a politician and is trying to get through the next election on anger and hatred like some dinosaur from the troubles. A lot of people around this area are disgusted but he might just have riled a big enough mob to coast through on empty hatred.
