UNIONS CALL FOR SURVEY ON RUDD

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.


DAVID MARR A HIT IN GAY COMMUNITY ONLY

 

 

Gay News Network, which delights in pics of blokes snogging blokes, is wild with excitement that their gay darling, David Marr, is demonising Abbott. 


GREEN NOW AN UNFASHIONABLE COLOUR

Greens and the ALP are in freefall, arguing over who gets the emergency parachute.


There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around...

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.



A TIME TO DOWN WEAPONS

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. 


COME PLAY MY POKIES

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.



WOULD YOU TRUST THIS WOMAN WITH YOUR PASSWORD?

The short answer is, “What drugs are you on?”


SECRET WOMEN'S BUSINESS

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.



MINING: Gillard digs herself a hole

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. 


GILLARD SHOULD GO NOW

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.



Uncle Gough Stuffed It

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.


GILLARD DETESTS PRIVATE SCHOOLS

“Private Schools will not be disadvantaged in funding”, so say Gillard and her Left advisers. This is another sneaky lie. Make no mistake, socialists  detest “elite” Private Schools, always have. So, hidden away in the legislation is the proviso that all funds from private donors must now be declared by the receiving Private School. Businessmen who have always donated “spare” cash to assist the Private School their kid(s) attend will now be forced to expose themselves to rapacious ATO audits. Of course many will run a mile. Looks like parents who want the best education for their kids will need to work a little harder. Socialist plots continue to unfold.



A Non-Existent Future Fund

Those on death row have a last wish; a no-expense-spared last meal. Gillard is now booking her future expensive meals in hell... and at our expense. NBN, Gonski, NDIS, dental scheme and array of endless idealistic "reforms" and tax schemes the Loony Left are determined to make Abbott-proof. They will probably be successful. Gillard is throwing around yet-to-be-earned cash like there is no tomorrow. She knows she won't be responsible for the massive debt. She will be doing okay on her bloated pensions and perks but we will be paying off debt and interest for generations. She has taken fiscal irresponsibility to new heights. Gillard can wreck the rented House for one more year and we will have no hope of retrieving the bond.


Blood On Our Hands

Parliament’s perennial conscience, Lib MP Mal Washer’s claim that politicians have blood on their hands is near the mark. The Taliban practice of beheading opponents and apostates of Islam is a Koran edict. These savages commit these acts whether we are there or not. They laugh at us. The might of the World’s armed forces has not swayed them from their despicable Sharia law! It never will. Our boys’ efforts are better served back here dismantling Afghani terrorist cells that arrived here in those boats at Gillard’s invitation and at our expense. Come home and protect Australians, not decadent Afghanis. But spray the poppies first.
