TROUBLE AHEAD FOR THE TREASONOUS TRINITY
... and they could present you with Shorten!
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.
Malcolm Turnbull is trying to erase Tony Abbott’s remarkable record achieved under an obstructionist Senate that had joyfully rejected around forty Bills, many of which were part of Abbott’s 2013 election platform. But the suave genius Turnbull is relying on only two IR Bills for a Double Dissolution while Abbott tries to rescue his legacy of a successful but short career as PM.
It’s not that Turnbull disagrees with these forty or so Bills of Abbott’s but he doesn’t want other issues front and centre as indication of Abbott’s Lower House achievements. Even Christopher Pyne’s Higher Education University Reform Bill has been ignored.
Wise? Well, maybe, because Turnbull wants the election argument centred solely on the reform of Shorten’s unions, as advised by Dyson Heydon’s Royal Commission.
But hang on, that RC was set up by Tony Abbott! This was to be Abbott’s and Hockey’s unlosable election, not the Merchant Banker Turnbull and his stick insect sidekick’s.
And what the hell is a Merchant Banker anyway other than a bludger using other people’s ideas and money to steal shareholdings in certainties in exchange for easily-Googled “advice”?
The Australian Prudential Regulation Authority in 2012 banned the use of the word “Bank” or “Banker” in relation to merchant pursuits suggesting it was misleading to claim to be a “bank” in such a dodgy industry.
So when Turnbull claimed in Parliament to have been “lucky” on his track to riches and the Prime Ministership he wasn’t kidding.
If Turnbull is serious about a DD he has gone about it in an inept schoolboy fashion... only Turnbull could have left the Coalition exposed by arranging for an election following what should have been an austere “recovery” budget... and he has lost Treasurer Morrison as an ally in the process.
Abbott’s management faults were manifold but he had a politically intelligent blueprint that would have entrenched the Coalition in government.
Turnbull has denounced Abbott as irrelevant and given Shorten a possible blueprint.
