NEW BROOM TAKEN TO OLD SOCIALISM

Labor’s culpability seems lost in the task of bringing Australia back to economic stability, and Joe’s silly debt tax seems lost in the enormity of his looming cuts.


RALPH BLEWITT GIVES EVIDENCE



I'M JUST WILD ABOUT HARRY

Now, before you all get up in arms about the “innocent until proved guilty” ethic, allow me to say one thing... this bloke’s a grub. And the group hugs of family and friends when entering court may not be quite as grouped when leaving court after he is found guilty. But he is too old to jail and is no longer a threat to little children.


"CULTURAL DIFFERENCE"

... paedo free to prey on our kids

Extensive coverage of paedophile Ali Jaffari’s fatuous court case was exposed on pickeringpost.com and the predicted aftermath of Magistrate Saines’ decision was today reported in the Sun Herald as follows:


LAP BANDS FOR JOE'S FAT CATS

Australia has one of the highest tax regimes in the world. And it’s inexcusable that another suffocating income tax (albeit on high income earners) be imposed to redress yet another massive debt left by a Labor government.



THERE'S NO RABBIT IN THAT HAT MR ABBOTT

Treasurer Joe Hockey and an unconvinced Mathias Cormann have exactly six days to persuade Tony Abbott not to put the Coalition back in opposition.


A COMPANY IN SELF-IMPOSED DECLINE

“Why negotiate to buy Fairfax? I’ll just wait outside for a while and pick it up off the liquidator”, said Singo. It seems he may not have long to wait as the once great Fairfax embarks on yet another round of job-shedding to keep the bailiff from the door.


THE TRUTH BEHIND THE EXTRA THREE BOATIES

On February 3 this year a boat was intercepted by Australian border patrol. One enterprising prospective immigrant feigned a heart attack. He was promptly transferred to Christmas Island along with one other person who feigned the same emergency.


AUNTY NEEDS A FACE-LIFT

...and a lift in ratings

The Gillard-appointed crusty old Leftie, ABC Chairman Jim Spigelman, along with his offsider Mark Scott, have plenty to fear from next Tuesday’s budget. They are about to lose their $250 million Gillard-gifted (and tender circumvented) Australia Network along with 80 million Chinese who have taken a liking to Skippy and Bananas in Pyjamas.


"SAY SORRY DAVID...

or I'll stick me tongue in your other ear."

If you want to have a scrap with your mate, just make sure you’re not rich. What the hell is all the bloody fuss about? Kerry would have been running around taking bets on Gyngell.


DEBT TAX WON'T FLY

The stupid idea was never a chance of implementation and merely kite-flying for Tony Abbott to dump it claiming he is no Julia Gillard and he intends keeping his word.


Q&A AMBUSH BACKFIRES ON THE JONES BOY

Thought I’d risk another 8c last night and watch the overpaid Jones boy get his rocks off bushwhacking another Lib. There were the usual suspects with the ever-present token homosexual, unhinged ex-Speaker Anna Burke, one sensible bloke next to her, a sheila in a yellow dress and Jones' victim, Education Minister, Christopher Pyne.



AUSTRALIA IS SPORT SPOILT


GUTTER PRESS REACHES FOR A NEW LOW

“Treasurer for Sale” screamed the headline, referring to Joe Hockey. Fairfax’s chief political grub, Mark Kenny, was at it again this morning as part of a concerted effort to derail the Coalition’s attempt to fix Labor’s mess. It’s a headline that also screamed litigation.


LIVING ON BORROWED TIME

The UK’s unsustainable and horrifically expensive and inefficient National Health Service did not bell a warning for Australia’s Medicare nor even Barack’s projected Obamacare.



BUDGET EMERGENCY?

You bet it is, and here's why

The Australia Institute, which is given SKY air time well beyond its station, has made an art form of spewing misinformation. Despite the fact that this “institute” is no more than a radical Canberran Left-wing think-tank, media is projecting it as a coterie of knowledgeable intellectuals. It most certainly is not!
