THE VILE VIXENS ARE OVARIAN TWINS
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.
In 1987 under Bob Hawke, the Department of Trade was usurped by Foreign affairs. In 2013 Abbott agreed, under pressure from DFAT Minister Bishop, to have AusAID, Australia’s main conduit for its excessive aid program, also encompassed by DFAT. Abbott was conned, and it was not to be the first time by Bishop! You see Abbott intended to slash foreign aid… a cunning Julie Bishop had other ideas.
Surveying the quarry
Eventually it was easier for Bishop to dispose of Abbott rather than have her UN glory and profligacy put at risk by an emerging right of centre Government. The surgical disposal of Abbott had Turnbull’s and a slim majority of Lefty Liberal support, despite Abbott having just routed Labor in the most successful election for the Libs in history.
Gillard surveys her quarry
It was a move that was reminiscent of Gillard's far Left coup of 2010 which unceremoniously disposed of Rudd. After that ensuing election Australia suffered the first hung Federal Parliament since the second World War. It required the likes of Slipper and the Greens for Gillard to govern.
The election following Abbott’s knifing in 2013 resulted in Turnbull losing every seat Abbott had gained for the Libs except one. Turnbull is struggling in the same way as did Gillard
What I have learnt most about politics in more than a half century is that it always repeats itself.
Gillard and Bishop are joined at the torso with Bishop excelling in canniness.
Bishop is even more treacherous and dangerous than Gillard in this girls only game
She is able to play her un-Australian game behind the scenes without the continual, probing exposure Gillard suffered as PM.
Unlike Gillard, Bishop plays a long game and with the portfolio of DFAT she can run amok in a Left wing spree supporting everything that was also dear to the heart of Gillard.
So let’s revisit AusAID. It was disbanded when brought under Bishop’s umbrella of DFAT and she then used DFAT’s secrecy provisions to fly under the radar where foreign aid was unaccounted for and where we found ourselves blowing billions in aid and aligned with Saudi Arabia on, of all things, the United Nations Human Rights Council… did I just hear you mutter “WTF?”
Oh, you’d be surprised at what goes on in DFAT where questions can be ignored as the business of security is embedded in the sacrosanctity of Foreign Affairs. Just try getting DFAT to answer or explain anything. It’s a waste of time.
Bishop also has her finger in fashion and home affairs with Mr Wonderful
Bishop is addicted to her calling card of foreign aid where she can strut the cocktail and back-slapping sets with her head held high above other first world nations and remote from Senate inquiries.
She is oblivious to debt as is her failed counterpart, Plibersek, who was desperate to keep the shadow DFAT portfolio despite that she was a radical airhead who thought Africa was a country and that only a few Pacific islands were disappearing under water. Hmm, unfortunately those “disappearing islands” were part of the same bloody archipelago.
I still recall the classic image of Bishop's eye-rolling death stare Treasurer Joe Hockey copped in Question Time when he suggested foreign aid might need to be trimmed.
But Gillard was addicted to powering up socialism over a largely unaware electorate, so she parachuted the disastrous darling of Sussex Street, Bob Carr, into the Senate to do her bidding in DFAT.
The cosmetically challenged Bob Carr
After all she owed Carr big time after he had arranged the NSW Right’s numbers to assist Shorten to have Rudd knifed, so she could concentrate on dragging Labor to the far Left with the help of Plibersek, Roxon and Albanese… something she had openly vowed to do since her Socialist Forum days.
The problem now is that, post Abbott, Turnbull has been chasing the socialist dragon himself, and moving just as far Left, with the help of Friedanegg, Pyne and Bishop.
Despite Andrew Bolt’s masturbating over an Abbott renaissance, Abbott can never regain the Liberal leadership. The Liberal Party has already been lost to the Left… it started with Fraser and Hewson and has now finally finished with Turnbull.
Bernardi and Hanson will continue to struggle to fill the void.
I guess the point of this piece is to say that we should be aware there is hardly a cigarette paper between the Gillard and Bishop philosophy.
The $90 million of taxpayers’ hard-earned cash that Bishop just donated to girls’ education overseas is mirrored in the $500 million Gillard gave to Pacific women’s advancement.
Two radical women concerned only for women,
… what about we poor, white supremacist, blokes?
