Goodbye surplus hello spin. This is yet another Gillard farce. It appears a desperate attempt at vote grabbing. The scheme won't come on line until 2014. Gillard won't be here then and funding will be Abbott's problem. The NDIS and Gonski are set for the same fate. Neither will happen in the next decade and not in the form Gillard proposes anyway. She seems good at announcing schemes for when the Coalition will be in government trying make cuts to pay down horrific debt.
This move is really about trying to make it impossible for Abbott to dump the tax. It is all about encouraging Companies to forward buy carbon credits in bundles. If Abbott needs to refund carbon credits it will become too expensive. That's why Abbott is so insistent that he will dump the scheme thereby encouraging Companies not to purchase these corruptible credits. This Gillard move partially negates Abbotts move. Smart.
Others who are commenting on the Wilson/Gillard scandal today confirmed that damaging material is pouring from the Office of Kevin Rudd.
Stephen Conroy suggested all unionists are involved with “slush funds”. Julia Gillard agrees, and she should know.
This material verifies what Pickering Post has been reporting over many months. The frequency and amount of the Bruce Wilson's fraud is extensive. It is unclear exactly what Gillard was privy to, instrumental in, and/or to what extent.
Peeling back the putrid layers.
Julia Gillard employs no fewer than 1,600 media advisers (spin doctors). The cost? $150,000,000 pa. There are more, but Ministers like Albanese won't disclose details.
Well done, Julia.
No, seriously, I mean that. Shot me down in flames you did. I really felt like crawling under a rock after that impromptu performance...
Abused asylum seekers are being paid an average of $160,000 in compensation, up 60 per cent for each individual in the past two years, Immigration Department figures show.
Young and naive, indeed.
It appears that Nicola Roxon and Peter Van Sumbugger are the only two people left standing...
I was working for The Canberra Times when I first met Alan Reid. Alan, known as the "Red Fox", was a political correspondent for Sir Frank Packer's Daily Telegraph...
Well, well, well. The grubs are finally coming out of the woodwork now that Gillard is on the back foot. Most of you won't know who Michael Pascoe is so I'll fill you in.
... and why she refuses to comment.
Julia wandered aimlessly around her Abbottsford home. She had been unemployed for almost six months since she was sacked from Slater & Gordon...
The two jewels in the crown of the communist's mantra are "redistribution of wealth" and "control of the Press".
