ALBO NOT PM MATERIAL

... but ideal Opposition leader

Anthony Albanese never saw himself as PM, he was happy as chief Left faction poo kicker. But a week is a long time in politics and a few days counting numbers and gazing into the bathroom mirror is all Albo needed to see himself as leader of the Opposition.



GLOBAL WARMING FRAUD PUT ON ICE

A United Nations report on global warming has been postponed as the northern ice cap expands by almost one million square miles. An increase of 60 per cent.


Double dissolution off the agenda now


KILL BILL...

and while you're there kill Kev too

Oh, Bill wants the ALP leadership all right, but not via a democratic vote. He wants to be handed the role without factional caucusing and further division. How honourable and considerate of Bill, how gallant!


GREENS HAVE A NASTY POINT

Next year it’s likely that Tony Abbott’s carbon tax annulment Bill will successfully work its way through the Senate with the aid of a few strange bums occupying oddball, single-issue seats.


Kev remains Kev to the end


A WEALTH OF TALENT

... or a list of leadership liabilities?

Chris Bowen: A diminutive yet ruthlessly formidable opponent who only sails a favourable wind. Intelligent but slippery and lacks integrity. Has little union backing. Will switch to where he is most personally advantaged. Abbott would have no trouble handling him. Inclusive but untrustworthy!



GIVING THIS RABBLE A ROCKET

I expected to be elated to see the end of this bloody lot but I’m not. I’m bloody tired and angry. Just a little progress for all that pain would have been nice but no, it’s been all regress.


UNFAIRFAX REVERTS TO TYPE



SMH GOES FOR TONY

...The Age wants Kev as second prize

"Australia is crying out for a stable government and only the Coalition can be trusted to deliver what it promises": The Sydney Morning Herald. A surprise? Not really. The SMH could not escape the stench of rampant criminality in the NSW Right; the mob that installed both Rudd and Gillard... then Rudd again.


LABOR BLOWS ITS BOND

...and trashes the Greenhouse before being evicted

The Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC), which provides a finance stream for loony renewable energy projects, was instructed to get as much of its $10 billion budget of borrowed funds out the door before an expected change of government.


GREENS TO DEFY THE PEOPLE

Kevin Rudd and Christine Milne both aver they will not pass Tony Abbott’s legislation to scrap the carbon tax in the Senate. Uncle Kev is all bluster but Aunty Chris is serious.



WHO IS GASSING WHO?

The Washington Times reported today that a senior United Nations diplomat said testimony from gassed victims strongly suggests it was the rebels, not the Syrian government, that used Sarin nerve gas during a recent incident in the revolution-racked nation.
