GILLARD’S LAND MINES NOW IN THE LAP OF THE PREMIERS
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.
Julia Gillard cruelly gladdened the hearts of the disabled, but it’s Tony Abbott (and now Malcolm Turnbull) who had to wrestle with the reality.
Three years ago, here on PP: http://pickeringpost.com/story/don-t-disappoint-the-disabled-julia/1274
Gonski and the NDIS were unfunded land mines a heartless Julia left for her nemesis Tony Abbott. In the 2013 election Abbott agreed to fund both as far as the forward (4 years) estimates, but Gillard had promised ten and twelve years into the future knowing full well she would not be around.
Rudd continued with both hoaxes and the State Premiers, both Labor and LNP, and of course Bill Shorten were keen to see a non-existent $80 billion in Commonwealth funding "honoured". This week the Gillard hoaxes were finally laid bare and PM Turnbull has finally admitted that, “The money just isn’t there”. It never was and now the Premiers have to accept the truth.
There is no doubt these imaginary funds, even if they had miraculously materialised, would have been misspent on union extravagances. Hockey had realised that Government funding to industries invariably trickles into union bank accounts in return for industrial peace, that’s why he finally told the craven carmakers to fornicate off back home.
For decades billions in taxpayer funds found their way into union crooks’ pockets to ensure industrial peace... not to create better and less expensive vehicles.
Amid howls from the ALP, Hockey also refused to provide hundreds of millions to prop up Qantas in its “time of need” only to witness Qantas report record profits a couple of years later. Hockey was right again.
The same applies with Shorten and South Australia’s Labor Government demands that submarine contracts be given to the uneconomic SA ship builders, when other international builders can produce twice the quality at half the price.
So far the SA ship builders, who “can’t be trusted to build a canoe” have only produced submarines that submerge, surfacing is a bit complicated for them.
So Shorten cares about a few metal workers’ jobs, eh? Bullshit he does... he has cost thousands of union members their jobs in the past when he can get an “industrial peace” deal for himself. Not himself personally but to purloin the funds that are desperately needed if he and his Labor Party are to be re-elected.
That’s not likely now and the IR legislation triggers for a DD will put paid to this union corruption at least during the life of an LNP Government.
But sooner or later swinging bogans will decide Labor needs another go and the corruption will re-commence because Labor cannot survive without unions and unions will not be denied their Labor Party milch cow. The Gillard style hoaxes will also re-commence in anticipation of an incoming LNP government.
This election will be a political watershed with Labor fighting for its survival in the arms of their Islamic electorates. Islamic atrocities are set to have an unrealised electoral impact because even bogans have taken to reading the Koran and the LNP under Turnbull still believes we need to nurture Islamic communities in order for them to “dob in” their budding Jihadists. Hmmm, what a load of smelly old camel shit!
They didn’t dob them in in Paris or Brussels... or here.
