Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, wanted an unprecedented eight-month election campaign to give her the time necessary to cripple Tony Abbott in a barrage of blue-sky social legislation, according to an ALP Media staffer.
Gillard’s insidious Media Department, headed by the 457 wonder boy, John McTernan, is developing cracks and those with a conscience are wincing with embarrassment at Gillard’s blatant use of the disabled.
This NDIS legislation had been on ice for over two years and was passed within days of Gillard’s Press Club announcement of a September 14 election.
But in typical Gillard fashion it had no details, no form of implementation or who would administer it or who would be covered.
“This early announcement of an election will give people certainty”, she said.
Certainty? Certainty of what? There was only one thing people wanted certainty of and that was Gillard’s departure!
“It’s not a good look”, said the staffer. “A few of us are disgusted over this one and there’s been quite few resignations.”
McTernan’s job is to get Gillard re-elected but he has misread we Aussies. What has happened is the Gillard disaster has meant everyone is now taking an interest in politics, and that’s not good for Labor.
Exotics, McTernan and Gillard have underestimated the Aussie punters’ intellect.
Blind Freddie and his dog can see through the endless crap we are served up daily.
Most of us expect all this from a Labor Party in its death throes, but not when it involves the disabled and a Gonski generation of Labor-induced illiterate kids and teachers.
Even ABC and Fairfax lefties are hiding their faces in shame while rehashing their pro-Gillard opinion pieces.
The fact is that Gonski is an unholy mess, the NBN is a white elephant and the NDIS is nothing more than a cheap fraud perpetrated on the desperately needy.
Abbott is smarter than Gillard. He can now sit back and watch her stew in her own excrement.
Her locker is empty with nothing left over for the hustings.
Jenny Macklin, Gillard’s partner in the infamous Communist Socialist Forum (whose aim was to infiltrate and undermine the ALP) yesterday tried to explain what the NDIS would cover.
She said physical and mental injuries.
Mmmm, really Jenny? That covers just about all of us, including the Islamic nutter who smashed the cop car with a milk crate!
He was on a disability pension due to a football injury.
He, of course, was excused by the magistrate.
Hang on, a football injury for Christ’s sake? Then surely alcoholism and drug addiction will qualify. Kleptomania maybe? Peanut butter allergies, bad backs, impotence, arachnophobia?
It’s bloody endless, indefensible and indefinable. The Bill is certain to spend 20 years in Abbott’s too expensive basket.
In Gillard’s short tenure of Office we have gone from the penthouse to the outhouse and she has knowingly dragged the hopes of the disabled down with her in a last gasp attempt to gain credibility.
I (and 75% of Australia) am suffering from severe depression and I feel a debilitating migraine coming on.
Let’s get in the queue.
