Well, Mr Turnbull began the day by urging us to vote for the Coalition with the following tweet:
I still find it a rather disrespectful way to refer to his fellow party members but I guess that he knows them better than we do.
He followed up by calling on the Governor-General and advising him that the Prime Minister would like to call a Double Dissolution election on July 2nd. I guess tomorrow we’ll have a series of articles praising Malcolm’s political cunning and how he’s caught Labor by surprise because – even though everyone has known about the July 2nd election since February – nobody knew exactly when he’d go to see the G-G and actually enter the caretaker period.
I love elections! They bring out the best in people. Take the Liberals. After three years of telling us that it was all under control and they had no need to comment on operational matters and now that they were back in power it was all going to be all right because they had a plan, so piss off and leave them alone to get on with the job of transferring wealth from the leaners to the lifters because a rising tide lifts all boats, so why should we worry about climate change because higher sea levels will lift everyone, we now have them being polite again and reminding us that they’re really, really nice blokes who are just looking after us. For a start, there’s their plan for jobs and growth. And no, it’s not the one where taking away any income for unemployed people under thirty for first six months should lead to a boost in crime and therefore, we’d have a boom in the security industry, not withstanding all those construction jobs from the extra jails that would need to be built!
Now, a few nasty people who aren’t getting into the election spirit where we let by-gones be by-gones and not go bringing up the promises that were broken after the last election because that’s just not the way it’s supposed to work; we all knew that the Paid Parental Leave scheme was too expensive and that there needed to be cuts made and that there was no “Budget emergency”, so whatever was said in the last campaign isn’t relevant at all. These cynics have suggested that, as the government’s been in power for three years now, are asking why haven’t they actually implemented their plan? These feral, bleeding heart do-gooders overlook the fact that if the Liberals made their plan public, then Labor might steal it. No, election time is for looking to the future, voting Liberal and trusting that they have a plan for jobs and growth because that’s what they told us.
Labor, on the other hand, just want to indulge in class warfare. When the Liberals reduce Newstart – even though business groups are telling them not to – that’s only so they can give tax cuts to the average person on $80,000, that’s only making sure that money goes to those who deserve it. Class warfare is when you complain about the money that rich people are getting. When you suggest that anybody on the dole or a disability pension is a drain on society, that’s not class warfare – that’s just sound economic management.
You know, sound economic management where the government improves its bottom line reducing tax for some people while telling everyone that it’s about time that they paid more for the necessities of life. Where governments can say that they’re balancing their budget, so if you can’t, then that’s your problem. Yep, when you increase the cost of living for everyone that’s ok, because someone earning more than $80,000 has an extra six bucks a week to pay the Medicare co-payment. And let’s face it, anyone who goes to the doctor more than once a week must be one of those bludgers who isn’t working.
Yep, one has to admire the Liberal Party. Particularly Scott Morrison who said that he won’t be apologising to “Save The Children” for what he said about them. He only said that they were “allegedly” coaching self-harm, and when you repeat something and preface it with “allegedly”, then that means that you can go and attack them as though it’s definitely true and if it’s later proved wrong, then it’s not like you were the one who accused them, so no apology is necessary.
Yep, one has to admire the Liberal Party. I mean that’s what our PM meant with his tweet, isn’t it? Celebrate those mothers, admire them, love them!
Yep, one has to admire the Liberal Party. Well, no, it isn’t compulsory I mean you do have a choice, because the legislation making it compulsory has been put on ice until after the election
