JOE PLAYS HOCKEY WITH JONES AND WINS

... well, sort of

Standard and Poors, the world’s leading (albeit notoriously inaccurate) ratings agency, says Oz had better get its budget under control or risk losing its AAA credit rating, and that sort of international commentary is music to Joe’s ears. Apparently Clive Palmer, the ABC and the Left of Fairfax are all wrong! We DO have a budget emergency.


A MESSAGE FROM DICK SMITH


A NEW PARADIGM FOR THE PREMIERS

At last the ABC and Fairfax pitbulls are able to sink their teeth into Tony Abbott. They can smell blood and they don’t intend to let go. They have waited a long time to avenge the death of their dear Julia and they are going to enjoy every last minute of it.


IS DADDY DANCING IN THE DARK?

Joe Hockey is gambling his career on a ploy to save Tony Abbott’s and the odds of it coming off are slim. If it does, it will be a political coup that trumps all others and a coup de gras that sinks Labor.



KEV IS RESPONSIBLE

... but others are to blame

I always knew why I didn’t like Kevin Rudd but now I know why his Party despised him. He really is a piece of work. His performance yesterday before the Commission, and under weak examination, was a shameful summary of who Kevin Rudd really is or, I hope, was.


POOR UNCLE KEV WANTS HIS DAY IN COURT

Presiding Commissioner in the pink batts Royal Commission, Ian Hanger, will have had very little sleep last night anguishing over whether Kevin Rudd is legally able to defend himself in open court.


A HOLE IN THE BUDGET AND RALPH’S TESTIMONY

... but nothing serious

Commentators seem to have missed Joe Hockey’s master stroke, this budget reverses the ideological centralist dream of Gillard. Forget the broken promises and unrealistically conservative forecasts, this budget is all about the next election, and the next election will be all about a GST increase.


MEDIA SCRAMBLE TO CATCH UP ON JULIA

Coverage is scant and opinion pieces scarce as media’s Left belatedly attempts to catch up on a Gillard story it swore didn’t exist. Now the intrepid reporters will need to do some homework.


THE MISSING PIECE IN THE GILLARD PUZZLE

[I would never repeat a story from months ago but in light of Ralph Blewitt's testimony today it seems my deep throat was spot on... it is devastating evidence.]


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.
