This stupid policy is not a broken promise unless you wait until after the election... then it WILL be! At the moment it's merely a response, an adjustment, to the increasing insolvency of the Gillard Government.
Earlier this year Pickering Post's informant in SERCO (the foreign company that runs security at Australia's detention centres) disclosed that Derby's infamous Curtin Detention Centre was being cleaned out. The infection-triggered Guillain-Barré syndrome, which left many staff and inmates hospitalised in Perth, was given as the reason. But there's more.
Treasurer, Wayne Swan, trotted out Penny Wong to give the bad news of a $17 billion deficit (it will be closer to $20 billion) while he was preparing to front up for the good news of an RBA rate cut. Good news? Did he really say "good news"?
Pretty much. Both reflect outdated religious forms of slaughtering animals for consumption and we need to decide if we support it or not. If we don't, then live cattle exports must cease.
New Zealand was on the brink of recession prior to the Conservative government of John Key taking the reins in 2008. This small economy of 4.4 million people is now preparing for a series of record surpluses... and without the help of a mining industry.
Today Malaysia faces an important election; a poll that has unreported consequences (by our media) for the Gillard government.
The current appeal against Justice Rares' decision to dismiss James Ashby's claims in a pre-committal hearing should be upheld. Ashby's claims against Peter Slipper should be heard.
Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, wanted an unprecedented eight-month election campaign to give her the time necessary to cripple Tony Abbott in a barrage of blue-sky social legislation, according to an ALP Media staffer.
Abbott was right about one thing... this woman really is a piece of work and her desperate use of the disabled yesterday was a new benchmark in ALP filth.
Of all Gillard’s electioneering “initiatives”, the NDIS will be her most disastrous. The disabled and their carers will be devastated when they discover it’s just another Gillard fraud. It has little hope of implementation and no hope of working.
I was brought up in a Press whose motto was “publish and be damned”, but the legend of the intrepid reporter died with Alan Reid.
Imagine an imbecile called John. John votes Labor. John has been in the same job for the past 20 years. For the period in 2003 – 2007 every year his employer gave him a sizable bonus. Then in 2007 Labor was elected to government.
Government tax revenue has steadily risen over the past five years and is expected to reach $340 billion in the current financial year.
