There’s an old saying, “Fool me once, shame on you! Fool me twice, shame on me! Fool me over and over again, you must be the Murdoch Press telling me that the Liberal Party are great economic managers…”
Yep, I did think that most ridiculous thing I heard was Sean Hannity’s denial that he was a “client” of Michael Cohen. Hannity – the Faux News’ personality in charge of justifying whatever Donald does – denied that Trump’s lawyer had ever been hired by him. Hannity has just – from time to time – had the odd chat about legal matters…
There’s a whole series of questions there, but I’ve been distracted by the photo of Scott Morrison in a Satan suit. Sorry, Santa suit. I always get those two confused. That’s Satan and Santa, by the way, not Scott and Satan. Scott, Santa and Satan One is a mythical creation designed to scare people into being good, one just enjoyed punishing people, and one used to be charge of Hell. However, he’s passed that job onto Peter Dutton, so Scott’s the one without a clear role, hence the Santa suit…
Anyway, I’m not suggesting that Scottie Morrison actually dressed up in a Santa suit. This is just a little something that the Murdoch media are allowed to do. Dress Scott up in a Santa suit, place Labor politicians in Nazi uniforms, put Chris Kenny in a compromising position with a dog…
Oh wait, that last one was done by the ABC’s Chaser crew and was just totally wrong, because they were doing satire and not serious news. Apparently you’re only allowed to photoshop things that haven’t happened if you’re doing actual news…
So let’s be clear, we can’t elect Shorten because that’ll stuff up the whole economy because it’s only by giving tax cuts to rich people that anything good happens. However, giving tax cuts to anyone earning less than $60,000 is just a waste of money because they’ll probably just spend on things like food and shelter. Then, before you know it, the Budget will be in worse shape because Labor need to run surpluses, but the Liberals just need to be reducing the size of the deficit at some future date after the next unicorn sighting, or when Gerard Henderson admits he was wrong about something.
But apparently, now that the Budget is only a few billion in deficit, everything is just hunky dory and Scott can afford to make it Christmas in May.
Although, didn’t Bananaby tell us that Malcolm needed to fix his poll numbers by Christmas or he should step down? Christmas in May?
Could this be Santa Morrison’s way of bringing forward a challenge?
Well, if there’s one thing I can’t predict, it’s the future. However, in spite of that, I’ll bet that when uses the Budget reply speech to tell us that we’d be better to put the company tax cuts towards a cut in personal tax for people on incomes less than $100,000, we’ll be told that this will send the Budget into freefall even if it costs less than the $65 billion for the company tax cuts.
