What the hell are we doing in that backward, barbaric country anyway? It's worth noting that Australia, along with the US and 60 other countries, boycotted the 1980 Moscow Olympics. The reason? Russia had invaded Afghanistan. How times change. There remains only one constant: The death of one Aussie boy is not worth all the poppies in that cesspit of... a land. Spray every crop, leave them to their decadence and utilise drones to eradicate terrorist cells.
Lesson No. 1 for the ALP, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, you'll only f**k it. The "no advantage" concept is a farce. The 200,000 refugees locked in East Asia are treated like rabid dogs because they can't afford the boat trip. Will we treat them in the same inhumane way? Of course not! We are not Third World! Boat people aren't stupid and they will keep coming as long as there is a vast disparity in conditions and we allow them to communicate the disparity.
The Financial Review today reported an imminent $120 billion debt due to irresponsible Government spending. "This equates to almost $5,000 for every man woman and child." Current interest on debt already amounts to $100 million per day and is placing upward pressure on interest rates. A leading financial commentator said this morning, "This is madness of the first order. Common sense seems lost in a maniacal scramble for lost votes." "These Politicians just don't get it", claimed Deloitte Access Economics. It's a taxing problem.
A Melbourne lawyer and Federal Independent candidate, James Johnson, has filed a formal complaint with the Vic. Legal Services Commissioner. "I am greatly disturbed about the widespread media reports containing allegations of unprofessional conduct/professional misconduct by the current Prime Minister of Australia, Julia Eileen Gillard", he said. Don’t hold your breath James, the lady didn't allowed her Practising Certificate to lapse for no reason.
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...
