BISHOP LETS GILLARD’S U.N. CAT OUT OF THE BAG
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.
The Foreign Ministry is the plum job every Minister wants. The person elected Deputy Leader has the choice of portfolio and Shorten’s shadow deputy, Plibersek made the same choice. It’s the greatest rort going with first class travel for you and your spouse, the best in hotels and sumptuous tucker. There is no need for you to get involved in boring parochial politics, it’s impossible to make a mistake, you can make lots of friends with a limitless budget and DFAT is accountable to no-one.
But when Foreign Minister Julie Bishop was asked by the ABC’s Barrie Cassidy why her application for another UN seat was made 14 years in advance, she replied that it was, “less expensive that way”.
She went on to say that it would also not require foreign aid budgets to be “rearranged” at the last minute.
What Aunty Julie was really saying is that if we want another two-year stint at the UN big table, we don’t want to have to pay as much as Aunty Juliar did.
Gillard flicked billions to African and Pacific nations to secure votes, that’s the way it works, and Bishop was inexplicably confirming she was preparing to do the same.
“Rearranging” aid budgets is polite way of saying we need to throw more aid money at those corrupt generals who are still equivocating at the 11th hour.
Foreign aid, which was slashed under Hockey, has little to do with aid but has everything to do with filling the offshore bank accounts of corrupt black, brown, and Islamic regimes that have UN membership.
That’s why the people of poor nations remain poor and “donating” nations get the UN seats.
If there was an iota of value to the average Aussie in Gillard’s successful tilt at a UN seat, please explain what it was! Of course it had no value except to the egos of Carr, Gillard, Rudd and Bishop.
Naturally Bishop will suggest it helped to force an inquiry into Putin’s responsibility for the downing of MH17. What a load of frog droppings! Putin, as a Permanent Member of the Security Council, has a right of veto over anything Bishop might suggest. That expensive two-year seat of Gillard’s was of no value to Australians and neither will Bishop’s be.
Julie Bishop’s amorphous DFAT is out of control, is operated by a Left cabal and is running roughshod over Australia’s interests. Among other questionable acts it has donated, along with the corrupt Saudis, $25 million in taxpayer funds to the hapless Clinton Foundation campaign and flatly refuses to deny it or explain it.
Julie is channelling Juliar and the trouble is that Julie is a lot smarter and therefore more likely to succeed as a source of DFAT damage for far longer.
When it comes to paying bribes for a UN seat there is little difference from the bribes paid to FIFA executives for a World Cup venue. With Sepp Blatter and his FIFA head honchos due for a stretch in the slammer perhaps Gillard, Bishop, Rudd and half of DFAT should start packing their toothbrushes...that's a joke Joyce.
Of course Barrie Cassidy let the Bishop response go straight through to the keeper.
