The true Minister for Fisheries, Big Bill Ludwig’s little boy Joe Ludwig, has been kept noticeably absent in the Margiris debate. This has the smell of his “live export ban” debacle.
Rudd’s dismantling of Nauru processing was part of his determined tilt at a seat on the UN Security Council.
Emotive and visibly horrific, this giant trawler was to replace three other trawlers that were collectively confined to exactly the same quota of fish. Not one extra fish was to be caught. Funny thing is the Greens will get exactly what they didn’t want.
The ALP’s “no advantage” assurance for asylum seekers is about as empty an assurance as our “investment pipeline”.
The rot has set in and the hounds are baying for blood as two prominent QLD unions call for tenders from polling companies to quantify Rudd’s appeal in marginal seats.
Gay News Network, which delights in pics of blokes snogging blokes, is wild with excitement that their gay darling, David Marr, is demonising Abbott.
Greens and the ALP are in freefall, arguing over who gets the emergency parachute.
Rudd is once again making hardly-muffled noises. He believes he is close to having the numbers to topple Gillard. He hasn’t... not yet.
We offer Ms Gillard our sincere condolences on the death of her father. It is an awful time for anyone when suffering the loss of a parent. Ours is not a contract of hate... it never has been. We want to debate political issues with which we disagree. This will be a very sad period for Julia and we feel for her and ask our followers to show respect in this period of mourning in the Gillard family as we have no ability to moderate all comments.
Gillard’s deficient ethics are in play again. Her sympathy for families affected by gambling addiction is nothing but arrant crap. The “trial” is utterly pointless as everyone knows. It will not be the faintest indicator of addicts’ intentions or habits. But the $40million to be gifted to ACT Clubs for the privilege of conducting this “trial” will be well spent, just ask Gillard. You see, the ACT Clubs are the ALP’s biggest donors. Why would that be? Well, ACT Clubs are owned by the Labor Party and the powerful CFMEU. I guess the working man’s interests are still in good hands.
The short answer is, “What drugs are you on?”
A few weeks ago, on July 19, I sat watching the TV. A bloke called Nick Warner was speaking to the Lowy Institute. I’d never heard of him but he seemed inoffensive enough.
The carbon tax is unravelling fast. It seems whatever Gillard dreams of tonight she will try to implement over breakfast tomorrow. This crazy tax had nought to do with emissions, was poorly designed and, like all other green/red thought bubbles, doomed to failure. Gillard and Swan’s outrageous spending is contingent on this and other imposts on mining. They never considered an inevitable downturn in demand or world prices. They didn’t allow for mining programs being shelved at the rate of one a day. The mining boom is over, the dollar is high, the pipeline of dreams is hollow, China is taking a smoko and we are now in debt $230 billion, paying interest at $100 million a day and dangerously less competitive in a highly volatile business. Thank you Julia... thank you ball boys.
She should not have lasted this long. Her stonewalling of a weak and crippled Press is overt and purposeful. A Press of old would never have tolerated this.
To understand the deplorable state of our kids' education you first need to know how it was stuffed so it is never allowed to happen again.
