IS TURNBULL'S TEAM SMART ENOUGH TO TACKLE SHORTEN'S?
...in a word, "No".
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.
For the first time no major Party deserves the thinking person’s vote. Shorten is a disastrous option to most people and Turnbull is a worry who will take the nation, in lockstep with Shorten, into a third world wonderland of Alice’s nightmares.
Shorten’s by-word for this election is “fairness”. A devastating word that, with the assistance of the Senate, destroyed two of Abbott’s budgets. It really means “insidious class warfare”, but if there is one thing that makes Aussies sit up and pay attention, it’s the word “fairness”.
Turnbull replies with “jobs and growth”, a tired old hackneyed phrase that is meaningless outside a Conservative’s Party room.
“Jobs and growth” is no match for the calamitous “Fairness”. If you already have a job it’s of no interest and if you don’t have one you are already on welfare which means you must vote Labor.
Turnbull’s other word, “Growth”, evokes visions of GDP rates and MYEFO forecasts that attract neither those with, nor those without, a job.
So the word “fairness” is already miles ahead and it must be asked just how much influence Turnbull’s new appointment, Lin Hatfield Dodds (above), is having.
Hatfield Dodds is a Senate Candidate for the Greens in the ACT and Turnbull has named her as the new Deputy Secretary of Social Policy within the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet (PM&C). Astonishing!
Even if the cosmetically challenged Hatfield Dodds has no Cabinet influence (in which case WTF is she doing there?) then she is certainly privy to enough Lib info to make her boss, Dick Di Natale’s, ears turn red.
If Shorten becomes Prime Minister we can look forward to a cabinet of fluoro jacketed CFMEU Members on Darling Harbour welcoming Muslim boat arrivals with how to vote cards.
And if Turnbull wins he will likely join them.
