“Australians may never know how many asylum-seeker boats arrive under a Coalition government, with opposition immigration spokesman Scott Morrison refusing to release details about boat arrivals without the approval of a three-star general.
The Coalition has previously said it would appoint a three-star military officer to command a joint taskforce, which will include some 12 government agencies.” The Age
Some Balance for those complaining that this site doesn’t present the “Right” perspective.
Well, that’s one way of eliminating the problem of “illegal arrivals” – note we kept get into trouble for calling them “illegal immigrants” so we don’t do THAT anymore – we won’t let you know how many there are. That way, you won’t be troubled by them apart from when they cause traffic jams and make hospital waiting times longer because they keep jumping the queue.
From our pamphlet
“We will deliver stronger borders – where the boats are stopped – with tough, proven measures.”
So you see we don’t need to give you actual numbers. We said that this election was about TRUST. And if you vote us in, you can trust us. If you don’t vote us in, we can’t trust you. It’s a contract.
Speaking of contracts, there’s been a scare campaign from Labor saying that we’d re-introduce WorkChoices. Abbott’s said on a number of occasions that WorkChoices is dead and buried. He doesn’t believe in resurrections, apart from when he’s talking about his Christian beliefs and no-one ever suggested that WorkChoices was Christian. So you won’t hear us mention the name WorkChoices ever again.
Although there is a need for greater productivity in Australia. One of our first acts in Government will be to come up with a name for something that increases productivity which doesn’t sound like WorkChoices or Fightback. Perhaps, we’ll have a competition. We like competition.
Labor’s been using a lot of scare campaigns in this election – things like pointing out that Hockey will be Treasurer or that some of our policies will take money off people. We may cut the Schoolkids Bonus, but ultimately you’ll be better off when your kids quit school to work in the mines. And think of the money they’ll save without a HECS debt!
Our policies are consistent and costed. We have the back of the envelope in Joe’s top pocket for anyone who wants to see it. Our NBN and education policy are pretty much the same – if that’s all Grandpa needed when he was growing up, that’s all we need today.
So make sure you vote for us, so that you don’t have to hear about boat arrivals and incompetent government. There won’t be a word of criticism about us in any paper. And everything we farm out to the private sector will be commercial in confidence, while Government departments will all be subject to the official secrets act.
And we’ll stop Labor’s waste. I’m sure that you must have received our advertising material. We sent it to every voter at least four times.
Trust Tony. It’s your choice. For now.
