I think it depends how much homophobia becomes a vote-winning rallying cry for Katter's new party. If the party just becomes a predictable one-man-in-one-electorate sort of affair, then I don't doubt you're dead right, but if it somehow gets traction ... well, I was initially thinking no way in hell it would, but Queensland's pretty much just been waiting for One Nation v2.0.

It's no secret he served as a minister under Joh: much as I loathe that era, I'm not sure this in itself is evidence of corruption. Mike Ahern, Joh's ultimate successor, was likewise a long serving minister. As was Bill Gunn, the deputy premier who started the clock on the downfall of the whole house of cards.
Oh yeah, I'm not suggesting it is evidence of corruption, just that I'm surprised more hasn't been made of it (I suppose because the media sorts who love to dredge up unfortunate aspects of the past are in this case generally sympathetic to Katter to some degree). I mean, when I lived in Queensland, it seemed any mention of association with Joh was uttered in the same way you would tell somebody "yeah, he murdered his mother".

Ian McCulloch the U2 fan:
"Who buys U2 records anyway? It's just music for plumbers and bricklayers. Bono, what a slob. You'd think with all that climbing about he does, he'd look real fit and that. But he's real fat, y'know. Reminds me of a soddin' mountain goat."
"And as for Bono, he needs a colostomy bag for his mouth."

Australia in general is ripe for another One Nation, but I think Katter's missed the boat. Look for it not up north, but in the busloads being run into Canberra for Abbott's quixotic (and dare I say, Tea Partyish) rallies against climate action or big great taxes or whatever the fuck it is he thinks will keep his political career alive for another month. Election now!!!!

Here is a funny picture of Bob Katter that we all can laugh at.

His nose looks like a penis. Coincidence? I think not!!
