The Queensland Labor Government should not blame a little wife-bashing crook like Billy Gordon for falling between the cracks, after all it was Labor’s pre-selection process that chose him, and amid claims of a criminal past that were totally ignored. But Labor has never been all that fussy about who they put up for election.
NSW Labor Senator, Sam Dastyari, is emblematic of the reason why Labor keeps losing to the loony Left Greens. The diminutive Sussex Street sleaze demanded the sacking of the only honest member of his dishonest Party, Martin Ferguson, for telling the truth. At least the Greens are honest about the extent to which they are dishonest.
You can say what you like but Australia is rooted folks. Completely rooted. There are some things that we cannot recover from and one of them is seven years of Labor follies and free-for-all spending. This time - unlike past times- they have simply gone too far. There's some stuff you just cannot recover from.
“It’s worth looking at”, said Julie Bishop when asked about Twiggy Forrest’s suggestion that regulation of Australia’s iron ore production could restore prices. PM Abbott and Treasurer Hockey rejected the proposal out of hand after hearing from the ACCC that Twiggy could face prosecution for even suggesting Australia’s miners should form a "cartel".
Well may Julie Bishop have rolled her eyes when Joe Hockey alluded to the dreaded Expenditure Review Committee in question time on Monday. Julie needs to hold her foreign aid head high on the international stage particularly when she sits as a temporary Security Council member at the UN.
Airbus is struggling with a string of inexplicable crashes that will likely be found to have computers as a contributing factor. Airbus is not at fault. Airline companies have demanded manufacturers produce planes that rely less and less on pilots and more on computers.
Saw a little of Q&A last night and, although I am not a fan of Australian country music, as much of it sounds just like American country music, I have nothing personal against Troy Cassar-Daley.
When Julia Gillard needed the support of crossbenchers she ran around like a blowfly in a strange shithouse, cornering and cajoling everyone who would listen. As PM she was then able to get no fewer than 560 pieces of legislation through both Houses. Tony Abbott has led from the back, sitting on his hands, and leaving the cajoling to relevant Ministers.
As reported here last year, be prepared for an IPCC barrage of climate misinformation as the pivotal Paris global warming conference draws near. From the ridiculous report that walruses were being forced to mate on rocky foreshores to the Himalayas becoming bereft of snow it’s been a mix of incompetence and outright lies from the IPCC.
His cooperation with Governor General Sir John Kerr to have Whitlam sacked in 1975 was duly greeted with wild approval by the electorate, but the Left never forgave him and he suffered the minority’s permanent hatred.
Impossible you say? How could the electorate ever conceive of promoting such a flawed character as Bill Shorten to Australia’s highest Office? Well, it will, and not even the Labor Party can do a damned thing about it.
