JULIE QUICKLY INTO BED WITH UN WARMISTS
... and without a chaperone this time!
Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.
You wouldn’t want to read the UN’s 69 "Sustainable Development Goals" Julie Bishop has just signed Australia up to and if you had, you would be white with rage. Perhaps you will now believe me that Minister Bishop was a key player in the knifing of her first term PM. Abbott knew all along he could never trust her.
I don’t want to scare you too much but one of the many “targets” Australia has just agreed to is to “... fully operationalise the Green Climate Fund through its capitalisation as soon as possible”.
Or how about this one? “To mobilise additional financial resources for developing countries from multiple sources to assist developing countries in attaining long-term debt sustainability through coordinated policies aimed at fostering debt financing, debt relief and debt restructuring, as appropriate, and address the external debt of highly indebted poor countries to reduce debt distress.” That’s gobbledegook for debt forgiveness if it’s big enough.
Gender equality gets a guernsey of course and there’s plenty about global warming, rising sea levels, our doomed Barrier Reef and drowning polar bears and there is a detailed between-the-lines explanation of how a universal carbon tax will finance all 69 objectives... but it has to be a universal Carbon tax. All countries must agree! Hmmm.
Are you beginning to see why Abbott had to go? Are you beginning to understand the anabridged elation and delight Minister Bishop showed at her boss's demise?
It was Bishop’s disgust at Hockey who had slashed her aid budget by half, and a wild feline hatred of Abbott and Credlin that drove her to conspire with Turnbull to bring them both down.
It was Bishop and Turnbull who fed the nervous backbenchers the leaks that finished up in the pages of a Left Press, thirsty for anything anti Abbott.
It was Credlin who advised Abbott to send Trade Minister Andrew Robb across from China to last year’s Peru UN Climate Change Summit where Bishop was attending to “keep an eye on” the little warmist rascal.
Abbott readily agreed but when she found out Bishop flew into a violent rage at being “chaperoned” by of all things a bloke and someone junior to her.
This instance was one of many that carved a philosophical chasm between Abbott and his Foreign Minister. Not that Abbott was free from blame, it was a stupid thing to do, and it lit a flame under a degraded and embarrassed Bishop on her global warming stage.
So, recently, when Abbott was reported to be considering a Cabinet reshuffle, Julie Bishop saw her deputyship and beloved Foreign Affairs portfolio at risk.
A week after that she volunteered for the tasty task of being the first to tell Abbott he was gone to Gowings... and Credlin with him. It was only then that Abbott acted to resist the coup but it was all too late.
The warmist rats had never left the ship, they had simply taken it over.
