We’re witnessing a core reasons why we don’t get the best parliamentary representation available. Labor’s handbag hit squad is embroiled in an unedifying old fashioned street scrap over preselection for retiring MP Martin Ferguson’s Melbourne seat of Batman.
Julia Gillard’s tenure at the helm started with the knifing of a colleague, backed by union thugs, and will end with an NDIS hoax and a Gonski scheme that even Gonski says her implementation of is flawed... all in between is a thoroughly expensive mess.
A panel discussion on Sky this week concerned E bridging visas and unprocessed Islamists. I’m used to some pretty stupid comments coming from Sky panellists but this one was a doosie.
Apparently Gillard doesn’t have the sole franchise on stupidity because it took social media to convince Abbott to renege on a deal with Gillard to pass an ill-conceived $1 a vote Bill.
It will now cost you one extra dollar to vote for a major party in a Federal election. You won’t have to pay at the booth but as a taxpayer you will certainly have to pay, and this iniquitous bastardry has the support of Abbott. Why? In this election it gives Gillard a distinct advantage!
Tom Waterhouse ads are intensely annoying and to pay his way on to a TV football panel simply degrades the commentary. Julia’s ads are no less of an intrusion.
If you, like all others, laud the actions of Adam Goodes, then don’t read on. I barrack for the Swans so I was glued to the set when Goodes interacted with someone in the crowd. “Ouch”, I thought, “don’t do that Adam, you’ll be in big trouble!”
Surprised? Well, you shouldn’t be because it’s simple really. If you are of the rabid Left you will gravitate to the media as surely as a paedophile will gravitate to the priesthood.
Minister for Trade and Competitiveness, Craig Emerson, PM Julia Gillard and Treasurer Swan continue to trot out the line that Ford's manufacturing closure is due to the high Aussie dollar.
PM Gillard’s dry weeping exhibition in the House over her NDIS legislation evoked polarised opinions between genuine concern and a crocodilian sham. The evidence of an alert photographer tends to suggest the latter.
We will not complain of Islamic immigration for fear of being labelled a racist. We will not complain of the Prime Minister for fear of being labelled a redneck nutjob. Crippled manufacturers will not complain of a carbon tax for fear of a $1.1 million fine. Media will not tell the truth for fear of litigation.
The UK, and continental Europe, is feeling the wrath of the Islamic imperative: We infidels have no right to life and the question now being asked is whether it's time to take oysters off the menu.
I’ll lose a few supporters with this post but here goes. Concocted media displays of law authorities and their massive drug seizures might ensure next year’s budget but actually worsens the drug problem.
