libs prove their loyalty

Queensland LNP members have called time on the 'father of the Senate' Ian Macdonald and fellow senator Barry O'Sullivan, dumping them from the top spots on the party's Upper House ticket.

The pre-selection took place in Brisbane on Friday afternoon, where it was confirmed both veterans would be replaced with political newcomers.

Senator Macdonald's 28-year career will come to an end at the next election, as will that of Senator O'Sullivan; who was appointed by the Queensland Parliament to the Senate seat vacated by Barnaby Joyce in 2014.

The Liberal National Party's executive and senior members voted to replace Senator Macdonald in the number one position with mining executive Paul Scarr, after earlier rejecting a pre-selection bid by former Newman government minister Scott Emerson.

Businesswoman Susan McDonald beat Senator O'Sullivan for the number two spot, while Glenn Rennick was third.

Senator Macdonald also lost a bid to survive via the difficult third place on the ballot, and instead won the fourth spot, which would be almost impossible for the LNP to win.

Tree lopper Brad Carswell took fifth place and Nicole Tobin was sixth.

In recent years, Senator Macdonald opposed moves to scrap free flights for former parliamentarians and questioned whether there was enough racism in Australia to require the race discrimination commissioner.

Mr Macdonald made no comment to journalists after the vote.

thrown to the dogs after 28 yrs of service.

The bit in red is the most likely reason for it, the libs love their taxpayer funded perks
I hope that bitch who was running their brothels for them gets raped with a cactus.

Nah.....they are both useless bludgers. Glad to see them booted. Pair of non-contributing long term Party hacks.
