We have seen three leaders’ debates now (well a couple of us have), and the overarching takeout is that this election is all about Bill Shorten and Labor policies.
After six years in government, Scott Morrison has nothing to say about why we should vote for his party other than we will get him as PM as opposed to Bill Shorten.
Even the journalists are over it. Patricia Karvelas said she feels like Bart Simpson writing lines over and over – “if you vote for Labor, you get Bill Shorten, if you vote Coalition, you get me.”
It was Tanya Plibersek who asked, “Is that supposed to be a selling point?”
Barrie Cassidy asked Josh Frydenberg, “Aside from the tax cuts, what will you do?”
Cue motherhood statement about strong economy and safe borders.
This is becoming a recurring question to which we have not been given an answer.
How on earth would the Coalition fill in its time if re-elected?
Tax cuts, then what?
Sure, there have been spending announcements, but none of them requires legislation.
So what the hell are they going to do for another three years?
Will it just be a three-year photo shoot of Scott Morrison in never-ending baseball caps attempting to beat ten-year-olds at sport?
Will they spend another three years talking about Labor?
Will it just be endless announcements about which Liberal Party apparatchiks have been given a high-paying government sinecure and which Liberal Party donors are receiving a government handout?
Other than tax cuts for the wealthy, what legislation do they actually want to introduce for the betterment of Australia?
Like what we do at The AIMN?
You’ll like it even more knowing that your donation will help us to keep up the good fight.
Chuck in a few bucks and see just how far it goes!
