The committed fascists and breathtaking, arrogant fools in the LNP absolutely refuse to listen to the experienced credible scientists, steadfastly refuse to listen to renowned economists (like the Nobel prize winning Joseph Stiglitz who has loudly criticised the LNP’s appalling mismanagement of Australia’s economy) and refuse to listen to the people of Australia whom the LNP treat with sneering, condescending contempt! No other government in our history (with the exception of the alleged war criminal, John Howard) have managed to defund, annihilate and destroy so much in so short a time.
It has only taken six short (devastating) years for the Wrecking Ball Abbott/Turnbull/Morrison circus to go on a campaign of such wilful, methodical destruction, it has changed the face of Australia and altered who we are in the eyes of the world. Outlined below is just a small list of the devastation the LNP have caused and links to further published chaos under their catastrophic mismanagement:
Quadrupled our national deficit to more than one trillion dollars
Completely destroyed the longest river system in our country, ie the Murray/Darling river by handing over unlimited water to the greedy predators in the cotton growing industry in the middle of one of the worst droughts in our history. This unspeakable act of criminal vandalism by the notorious, reckless Barnyard Joyce, went on to seriously impact desperate farmers down river and had disastrous consequences on Adelaide which city relies on the (once) great Murray River for its water supply!
The LNP continue to turn Australia into an international laughing stock and have now just about destroyed our once fine international reputation. We are now known, internationally, as a shallow, climate-change-denying nation of xenophobic racists who, despite every international law on the fair and just treatment of asylum seekers, have chosen to indefinitely lock up desperate asylum seekers (including defenceless little children) escaping from an illegal war that we helped to create in Iraq and Syria.
Morrison has received world wide derision and scorn for treating our island neighbours with such open, blatant contempt that our country has now become the Pariah of the Pacific.
Waste countless billions of hard-earned taxpayer dollars on ridiculous weapons of war, eg ludicrous submarines (providing jobs for the French and not Australians) which will become obsolete before they are completed.
Shut down Australia’s enviable motor vehicle manufacturing industry by refusing to provide government subsidies (despite the fact that every government in the countries that manufacture cars subsidises their car manufacturing) – this insane move by the short-sighted idiot, Abbott, cost Australia thousands of jobs within the car manufacturing industry and within related industries! This action from a government who brags to keep industries and jobs in Australia – what outrageous hypocrisy!
The countless millions of dollars defunded from public school education, Medicare and health!
The relentless patriarchal misogyny that sweeps through the LNP at every level.
The LNP’s ongoing totally corrupt, politically-biased association with their propaganda ministers in the Murdoch dynasty which goes on and on remorselessly attacking the ALP and the Greens whilst printing NOTHING about the appalling failure and escalating fascism of the LNP.
The LNP’s ongoing perverted association with the cold blooded neoliberal billionaires in the IPA which nefarious, undemocratic and unelected organisation have so much power and undue influence over the agenda and policies of the LNP!
The callous inhumanity by the LNP in its breathtaking mistreatment of asylum seekers, the poor, the homeless, the unemployed – non-stop virulent attacks that have allowed the worst, most heartless and cruel people in our society to crawl out from under their rocks and give them “permission” to vent their hatred and scorn on the most vulnerable people in Australia!
The absolute refusal to address climate change issues despite the fact that hard evidence has been presented by credible scientists all around the world and we are – right at this minute – experiencing the WORST most devastating fires in our history. Climate change is no longer on the horizon – it is here and now yet we have a deaf, dumb and hopelessly blind government too stubborn, too stupid and too arrogant to admit that they are dead wrong! Their inability to address these issues is killing our environment and causing the death of Australians and the rapid extinction of countless Australian native animals!
