“This is the kind of fortnight Tony Abbott likes to have”

Reproducing emails from the Labor Party is becoming quite a habit of mine. At times I’ve been critical of their messages – such as when they think that signing a petition is going to change the government’s mind on whatever – and at other times I’ve been quite happy to help spread their message.

Their latest email – from George Wright (ALP Campaign Director) – is one worth spreading.

Most of what is raised in the succinct little email is not news, however there might be one or two points in there that conveniently escaped the notice of our media, and subsequently your attention too.

Anyway, here’s the email:

Dear Roswell,

This week, in the paper, Tony Abbott was quoted as saying he and his Government have had “the best fortnight in the life of this Parliament.”

Let’s quickly examine the Abbott Government’s “achievements” over the last two weeks:

  1. Tony Abbott undermined the independence of the ABC and banned his ministers from going on Q&A.
  2. He prevented the Clean Energy Finance Corporation from investing in wind farms.
  3. He also asked the Clean Energy Finance Corporation to stop investing in rooftop solar.
  4. He caused division in his Cabinet by approving a coal mine in the Liverpool Plains.
  5. The OECD rated Australia as the 6th worst in the developed world for women in the ministry.
  6. His Government and Party started tearing itself apart about marriage equality.
  7. His $8.43 GP tax came into effect.

Sadly, this is the kind of fortnight Tony Abbott likes to have . . .

    I suggest a bad week for him, would be if he doesn’t get his face and loud mouth on TV for 6 of the 7 days …

    By the 7th day he’d be spittin’ chips, and ‘appear’ with 14 flags, that dreadful ‘dead-eyed’ stare, and a whole lot more ‘fire and brimstone’ garbage to deliver, in order to frighten the public into submisson ( only it ain’t working, is it ).

    Yep – am having a bitchy moment, but why not. …. I have one every time I hear ‘the voice’ droning out of my TV screen. ….. Get over it pretty quickly though. !! 😉

    Ugh – revolting.

    a major tenet of my diploma of secondary teaching would not be visible today,amongst the theory needed for a bachelor of teaching degree.
    Teaching success depends on – instruction – practice – re-inforced with new instruction – practice – re-instruction – now the instruction is fixed in memory. The rabbutt has instructed us on Labor and little billy by continually reinforcing that instruction into memory.
    The coalition is incompetent, at any political level, but compared to labor they are abysmal. However without little billy re-inforcing the rabbutt’s team’s incompetence there will be no memory in the electorate beyond I stopped the terrorists on boats – I controlled labor’s debt and I destroyed labor’s carbon tax. All lies but re-inforced as truth by little billy’s inaction on commercial TV.
