WAKING UP TO LABOR’S DIRTY TRICKS
... this one is a ripper and it cost the Libs seats
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.
Forget the Medibank lie that was designed by failed Treasurer Wayne Swan out of Queensland. This one was designed by the Green/union supported GetUp and it awoke tens of thousands of householders from a deep sleep in marginal seats across Australia.
Phones were ringing after midnight with robocalls asking the householder for time to carry out a series of polling questions on behalf of the Liberal Party. Well naturally after a quick “get fornicated” the householder struggled back to bed swearing he/she would never vote for those Liberal bastards ever again!
The Smarmy well-financed Green National Director of GetUp, Paul Oosting, says,‘”We zoned in on the hard-right for dragging Australia in the wrong direction.”
Shorten has changed the election game forever with some of the lowest gutter level tactics ever devised, and so far he and his supporters have remained free from prosecution.
But what are the chances of either House passing legislation that would impose penal provisions on lying politicians when lying is a tool in trade for both sides of Parliament?
It’s incredible that the private sector is restricted from lying to the public due to a comprehensive Trade Practices Act with hefty penal provisions, while these Leftist politician bastards are free to mislead the public in any devious way they wish.
Shorten in his CFMEU element
The ALP’s Left has tried to justify their lies by comparing them to Abbott’s pre-election promises. That’s bullshit of course because, although his promises eventually did turn out to be broken, they were in no way comparable to the Shorten lies designed to take effect before people voted.
Abbott’s promises may have been, in his mind, attainable at the time. That’s doubtful, and they were nonetheless disingenuous. But the type of tactics employed by Shorten, using arms-length organisations like the despicable GetUp, are clearly illegal and morally indefensible.
And this is what Cory Bernardi is on about. He is asking, "Where are the conservatives’ arms-length organisations?"
But it’s a shame if merely aping the ALP ever becomes the solution.
What Bernardi should be about is a conservative Party that speaks for a massively expanding electorate that has finally roared into life.
This rotten system that allows for Parties to convolute public opinion using these foul techniques must be stamped out.
A Liberal Bill bringing parties, politicians and their proxies under the Trade Practices Act will not pass, but at least we will know who exactly has refused its passage. Then we can know where to expect the worst of all lies to continue from... where the passage was refused. Then there will be many pollies with “lying bastard” pinned to their backs in both Houses.
In the meantime both the Medibank lie and the early morning robocalls that lied about who they were from, should be taken to the High Court.
A union thug like Shorten can hide behind the likes of GetUp and Swanny when vying for PM. But really, we deserve a better Parliament than that and we need better people leading even the ALP.
Pre Shorten and his union/GetUp backing, these type of tactics would never have been entertained, not even by Albo.
