4BC Summer Mornings: Maverick Gold Coast MP Alex Douglas is setting up a new political party and wants to poach dissatisfied members of the LNP and Labor.

Alex Douglas talks to John Scott about his decision to form a new State Political Party and responds to criticism that he should give up his seat as he is no longer a member of the LNP.

Blog comments Your Say

  • Mick, I agree, if they step aside a bi-election should be called. Also Bob Lord get back in your box, as you have pointed out in the past, Gillard was democratically elected under our constitution, even though she cobbled together a minority government while having fewer seats than the conservatives, and that we are only upset because we did not like the result. Same goes with Cambell Newman; he was overwhelmingly democratically elected and has the right to see out his term. So stop calling for an election you hypocrite.

  • Hey Bob how about you sit back and figure out how you voted several times knowing full well the miscariage justice to a minor who was pack raped under the control of the people you vote for so many times that is labor for you.

  • A law should be passed where candidates at election time present themselves as a member of a political party then resign from that party after election as being deceptive and misleading the electorate or just plain electorate fraud at its worst. They should face a byelection to retain thier seat and to remain in parliment. This would eliminate a lot of election fraud.

  • This is fantastic. The right wing looneys are fragmenting, devouring each other and self immolating.
    How many will lose the plot this year because CanLie has no idea how to manage people. Cripes imagine the little bloke trying to manage a minority government like Ms Gillard. No hope.

  • Someone voted these yokels in. Stand up and reveal yourselves! You are accountable for these amateurs continuously trying to take us back 50 years.
    Election Now!

  • OLD National Party SOUR GRAPES at not being able to completely take over the whole Government.

    The Premier is simply exercising the right of the elected members to act independently of the Political Party GREY-SUITS and back room faceless power brokers, which are mostly OLD Nationals.

    If watched for what it was the Nationals did not, in their minds, amalgamate. The Nationals were in the reality of their own minds staging a take-over.

    This is evident in the way a lot of long standing Liberal Party members have been treated by what is now the LNP (mostly OLD Nationals) hierarchy.
