IT'S THAT TIME OF YEAR AGAIN
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.
So here we go again in the doldrums that follow the footy finals. Fourth grade ethnic soccer scores spilling over from SBS, our Test batsmen couldn’t hit the water if they fell out of a boat, politics confined to gays and dishlickers... all that’s left of any interest is the US elections.
I apologise for my concentration on Donald and Hillary but it seems to evoke more interest than Bill and Mal right now. I find it difficult to believe that while Australia sinks under outrageous debt and deficits our Parliament is preoccupied with gay marriage for Christ’s sake.
And not one section of the media has focussed on the nub of the argument... the question, or the phraseology of the proposed plebiscite question or the legislation itself!
The Left will always find a warm and fuzzy title for the most despicable of its aims. “Safe Schools” would be better named "unsafe schools", if your kids’ school adopts this Left program, get them out of there and quick!
The US Left have named their taxpayer-funded late term abortion clinics that flog baby body parts as, “Planned Parenthood”. Why female activists have a fascination with late term abortions is a disturbing mystery.
“Renewable Energy”? Who wouldn’t agree with that, until you uncover its hideously damaging results like we have recently seen in our most renewable State of SA. “Climate Change”, well that’s the blatant renamed “Global Warming” fraud.
And now we have “Marriage Equality”, which is nothing more than an unmitigated trashing of the Marriage Act that will allow gay men to adopt toddlers for toys.
No-one will agree to the title “Trashing of the Marriage Act” so the Left calls it something more palatable like, “Marriage Equality”, that sounds fair enough, eh?
And now that Bill Shorten has somersaulted and canned the plebiscite, the truth will not be exposed in a proposed $7.5 million advertising campaign. He wants Turnbull to agree to a Parliamentary conscience vote where the people may never view the legislation until after it is gazetted.
A divisive campaign? No Bill, it would have been an informative one... and that's something that scares the shit out of you and the gay Left.
But Turnbull cannot agree to a Parliamentary vote without creating a Conservative revolt that will doubtless finish with Turnbull’s sacking.
Shorten would do well to stop wedging Turnbull because Turnbull has proved unelectable.
He has made the most basic of political mistakes as he did when he was previously leader. If the Conservatives return Abbott, then Shorten, or anyone who might replace him, is toast like Abbott's Rudd.
The present Parliamentary kindergarten farce has only been made possible by Turnbull and Shorten agreeing to a pathway to solvency. The problem is there is no pathway, as they both agreed that a predicted growth rate of 5 per cent would see the debt repaid in ten years. What garbage!
China will be lucky to maintain that growth figure, the US is sitting at around 1 per cent and we are struggling with an embellished 3.3 per cent, and with the cash rate at 1.5 percent, and inflation in the negative, that figure can only go south toward a recession while nothing is done.
So both these useless bastards have decided they can relax and play with each other's dongers while they argue over gay rights instead of budget reparation.
I dunno, all we need now is for Hillary Clinton to take over next year and we’re all stuffed.
