http://www.abc.net.au/4corners/digging-into-adani/9008500 ABC TRANSCRIPT DIGGING INTO ADANI Welcome to 4 corners SARAH FERGUSON: Few developments in Australia have aroused such passion as the proposal by the Indian corporate colossus Adani to build a giant coal mine in Queensland's galilee basin. The Federal and Queensland governments say the project - the world's biggest export coal mine - will provide thousands of jobs ...
30/9/2015 The Australian share market has lost $56 billion in value yesterday 29th September 2015. Today the 30th September 2015 the mug punters have been buying. The crash has not happened yet it’s still coming. The ASX 300 could drop to 4000 without raising a sweat. Australian shares could drop 30% on current prices before we have any semblance of a bottom. Will an increase in American interest rates be the catalyst that causes the landslide? There are lots of emaciated Bulls around but beware the hungry Bear that has awakened from hibernation.
24/8/2015 This is your four minute warning. Today the Australian Share Market lost $60 Billion, this fall is bad. But this is only the beginning! The real collapse is on the way. All those thinking of retiring and are invested in the share/stock market the shit is going to hit the fan. Abbott and Hockey's suggestion that in the future you will have to work until 70 is now knocking at the door. The 1930 Great depression is likely to be a walk in the park compared to the up coming financial crisis. Get ready for pain. Get ready!
18/8/2015 Abbott, bordering on psychopathic, prepared to change the law that prioritises pollution over the environment? Evil take many forms, this is the time when we turn to the divine and hope he is listening. The future is not pollution, it’s a clean environment.
17/8/2015 Tony Abbott a Rhodes Scholar? Connected, the puzzle is taking shape? Dyson Heydon, the Royal Commissioner under mounting pressure to quit over his links to the Liberal Party, was on a panel that awarded a young Tony Abbott a life-changing scholarship to Oxford University? The boys club?
15/8/2015 Liar, Insensitive, Bigot, Entitlement, Rorting, Arrogant, Ludicrous, Incompetent, Sexist, Misogynist. Enough, we need a change?
11/8/2015 Market crashes have occurred every 7 (seven) years -- like clockwork -- in September or October -- since 1966!! Yes, there have been market crashes in 1966, 1973, 1980, 1987, 1994, 2001, 2008 and now ...? Could September - October, 2015 be the next major stock market crash?
10/8/2015 Australia’s swim team coach’s decision not to enter a team in the World Championship mixed relay, citing it’s a novelty event, was not in the best interests of the team and borders on incompetence. Swimmers should take every opportunity to compete at a World Level, even if it is only for practice. A great race in which Australia lost an opportunity to compete against the best. Questions need to be asked.
8/8/2015 Treasurer Joe Hockey (Liberal) has proved the age of entitlement isn’t dead, jetting his family to Perth on business class flights during school holidays at a total cost to taxpayers of $14,566. This does not pass the ‘sniff test’. Tony Burke (Labor) proved that he too can claim a family holiday to Uluru at a total cost of $12,000 but says it was under the "family reunion" provision. Perfect examples of snollygosters?
7/8/2015 James Packer picks the top of the Sydney housing market with the sale of his house ‘La Mer’ for $70 million. It’s time to get nervous.
2/8/2015 Tony Abbott saddened by resignation of his most ardent, biased supporter, Bronwyn Bishop. It is now quite clear Abbott is still unable to understand the difference between an expense and an entitlement. We should all be equal before the law, so what is the penalty for defrauding the Commonwealth?
31/7/2015 Bronwyn Bishop resists resignation. The stench in the Liberal Party grows. Rorting the system has become synonymous with the Liberal brand, while expecting Australians to tighten their belts. Do as I say not as I do?
26/7/2015 Bronwyn Bishop, keeping up her community service as a LIBERAL role model? Setting an example of what Liberalism is all about. Tony Abbott’s biased, privileged, parliamentary enforcer? "That's the way the money goes. Pop! goes the weasel."
20/7/2015 The Goods & Services Tax (GST) is a Liberal Howard-Abbott Government introduced TAX. The Liberal Coalition should address the problem of, Corporate subsidies, Multi-Nationals tax evasion and Religious exemption to tax. The GST is not a tax on Big Business, it is a tax on ordinary Australians. The new Robbing Hood, redistribute from low & middle Australia to Big Business and the filthy Rich the Liberal way.
12/7/2015 Shorten is damaged goods, last chance for the Labor Party to rectify its position. Shorten an unpopular leader ready to bring down the Labor Party for his own aspirations. The Labor Party has probably already lost the next election. It doesn’t matter whether he is guilty, it’s perceptions. The Royal Commission is Shorten’s death knell no matter what the final finding will be. The question needs to be asked, why the Labor Party’s hierarchy would not acknowledge Shorten is ‘AWFULLY GOOD’. It’s time for the Labor Party to take a reality check as to where they want to be, in Opposition or Government?
11/7/2015 Dyson Heydon, selected by the Abbott Government, shows astonishing bias at the Royal Commission, with the following comments to Bill Shorten. ‘What I am concerned about is your credibility as a witness. A witness who answers each question ‘yes’, ‘no’, ‘I don’t remember’, or clarifies the question, and so on, gives the cross examiner very little material to work with. Dah WTF! Do we have a tag team for the prosecution, first Mr Stoljar, then Mr Heydon, but isn’t Mr Heydon the Judge? Is there factual information for an indictment or is it hoping for a confession? Judicial Activism and the Death of the Rule of Law?
9/7/2015 Barnaby Joyce Agriculture Minister, false outrage over Shenhua coal mine approval by Liberals over, Australia's best agricultural land. Joyce does what he is told; the perfect example was his appearance scheduled for Q&A until Tony Abbott, instructed him NOT to appear. Joyce the ‘lapdog’ of Abbott? Unable to speak freely in support of his constituents, hiding behind the Liberal Party numbers in Parliament. We need Tony Windsor back.
8/7/2015 The Nationals, no longer support farmers and Australia as the food bowel of Asia. They are the lap dogs of the Liberal Party, supporting Coal Seam Gas, that pollutes our aquifers and water supply and Coal Mining on our prime farm land. They are considered the Governments minor partner that will take the heat of the Liberals when dealing with Rural Communities. Questions as to Barnaby Joyce’s ability and fervor, farmers and food supply or polluting CSG and Coal Mining? The Nationals cannot serve four masters, the Liberal Party, Coal Mining, Coal Seam Gas and Farmers which are the future of our food security.
7/7/2015 Abbott, a brave man leading the charge from the rear, in a land far away, against the murderous hord? Abbott, feels very safe in Sydney, "I've got to say that it's a very comforting presence in the world, the US Navy, and good to have you in Sydney." Protection from Australian voters?
6/7/2015 Prime Minister Tony Abbott's office knew Foreign Minister Julie Bishop had misled Parliament about Sydney siege gunman Man Haron Monis three days before the government eventually owned up to the mistake. Lying has become as natural method of communication. Who can you trust?
4/7/2015 Abbott Government, has set the wheels in motion for Australia's share market crash, lies and more lies, incompetence not seen on this scale before. Get ready for the loss in value of your superannuation and savings. The small farmers have never been helped, so we import our food from suspect countries, while the best of ours goes overseas. We no longer manufacture so our technical prowess and jobs have diminished, call centres for our large companies are located overseas. Abbotts solution is, dig up and burn more toxic polluting coal; Australia's ever increasing market share of a dying industry. Austerity, high unemployment is coming to the lucky country, put your head between you legs and kiss you arse goodbye. Australia voted and gets what it deserves.
1/7/2015 Six months ago, it seemed Bill Shorten could not lose. Today, it seems the Labor leader cannot win.
Labor Party unable to see the forest for all those damn trees?
17/6/2015 Bill Shorten Opposition Leader has climbed the political ladder as far as his talent will allow. An unpopular Opposition Leader that has not been able to capitalise on Abbotts lies, thuggery, environmental vandalism, prejudice et cetera. Labor needs an articulate and liked leader to galvanise support and unite Australians. It’s time for the Labor Party to wake up and pass the baton to Tanya Plibersek, Chris Bowen, or just about anyone else other than Shorten a loser?
11/6/2015 Shorten, dead man walking, damaging allegations, Union background, disastrous personal polling. Labor with Shorten set to lose the next election, despite Abbott’s policy of attack, diminish, divide and lie. Labor, “can't see the forest for the trees.”
9/6/2015 Tony Abbott, very nervous of a possible challenge by Dick Smith, a Companion of the Order of Australia. Abbott’s seat of Warringah is now in doubt despite having a 15% margin. Will Abbott change Aviation Laws to get Dick Smith off his back?
8/6/2015 Dick Smith, Officer of the Order of Australia, Companion of the Order of Australia, entrepreneur, businessman, aviator, philanthropist ready to take on Tony Abbott at the next election. Poll suggests Smith would destroy Abbotts career in a landslide.
7/6/2015 Bill Shorten has had every opportunity, yet more unpopular than Tony Abbott. Labor Party needs to snap out of its slumber. An unpopular opposition leader has never taken Government. It’s time for Shorten to stand aside if he really cares about the Labor Party and Australia. The choice is Plibersek or Bowen or someone other than Shorten. Abbott is in campaign mode and time is running out. Shorten, unable to touch the void!
4/6/2015 According to The Encore Score, a survey of 3000 members of the general public, Tony Abbott Prime Minister of Australia is more popular than disgraced paedophile Rolf Harris. Abbott won by a whisker. Put in context, everyone else is more popular than Tony Abbott. 'the die is cast'.
2/6/2015 Prime Minister Tony Abbott has confronted his Cabinet colleague’s leaks of a split on national security, describing it as a "come to Jesus moment" for senior ministers. Does Abbott believe he is Jesus, ready to forgive or will the inquisition begin?
1/6/2015 Treasury Secretary John Fraser has warned that Sydney is "unequivocally" in a housing bubble. Tony Abbott, "As someone who, along with the bank, owns the house in Sydney, I do hope that our housing prices are increasing." Abbott again shows that his interests outweigh that of struggling Australians, who are unable to enter the housing market? What's in it for me?
29/5/2015 Turnbull says, "ICT skills such as coding, should not be only subjects offered in years 10-12, that's too late". "We need to expose more students to coding so they are inspired to create, build and develop new technologies rather than just being passive users of it." Abbott answer to opposition question says, "He said that he wants primary school kids to be taught coding so they can get the jobs of the future. Does he want to send them all out to work at the age of 11? Is that what he wants to do? Seriously?" Abbott again, an embarrassing blunder, ridiculing his own government's investment in technology education.
27/5/2015 Tony Abbott says removing GST on sanitary items 'certainly not something Government plans to do'. Abbott, the Minister for Womens Affairs.
24/5/2015 Abbott & Hockey, Budget 2015 cruel sleight of hand to cost families $15 Billion. Corporate tax avoidance cost Australia $100 billion a year. Abbott says his budget is “measured, responsible and fair". Hockey says, “it's responsible, measured and fair”. Me and my shadow? Coalition true to form.
23/5/2015 Prime Minister Tony Abbott, a Catholic, said Cardinal George Pell’s written statement from Rome this week, denying the allegations, had been appropriate. Defending the indefensible, birds of a.....?
22/5/2015 No matter what you think of Abbott, his stance on boat arrivals and taking in more Muslims and refugees has the support of the majority of Australians. The new slogan ‘nope, nope, nope’, is Abbotts trump card. He has the pulse of silent Australians.
21/5/2015 Bill Shorten, has already lost the next election. The invisible man who wants to be Prime Minister, fails to cut through with middle-Australia. Labor need a reality check, Shorten trails Abbott in the popularity stakes. Shorten has had every opportunity and has never been able to shine. The best man for the Labor Party is a woman, Plibersek!
20/5/2015 The two most hated Federal Politicians in Australia. Tony Abbott, Liberal Prime Minister of Australia. Bill Shorten, Labor Federal Opposition Leader. The Australian People want a better choice. Why are the major parties unable to see the obvious?
19/5/2015 Abbott, backs calls for an inquiry into iron ore for his mate ‘Twiggy’, "I think we do need an inquiry." McKenzie BHP says, "This is a ridiculous waste of taxpayers' money on providing a basic economics course on supply and demand,". Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane, "No decision has been made to have an inquiry and no one in the Government wants to regulate the iron ore market”. W.A. Premier Colin Barnett , That's not in the interests of the iron ore industry, Australia or Western Australia." Is this Liberal Party Policy or another Captains call by Abbott? Where there is smoke there is fire!
16/5/2015 Abbott, tries to shore up support in WA, however has nothing to announce. Daa! um..? I will fund another medical school. AMA President says “It’s a calamitous captain’s call by Captain Chaos. That’s the only way to describe it because it’s going to cause chaos with the medical training of students.” Australian Medical Association believes we already have too many. Australia has gone from 10 to 18 in the past decade. Gearing up for an election before the recession arrives?
13/5/2015 Shortens, budget reply needs to be sharp and to the point. Australians dislike politicians that use metaphoric language laced with analogies and those that move like a jack in the box while they are in front of a camera. The Australian People want a leader that can communicate with confidence and makes sense to everyone. A brilliant public speaking effort is required or this is Bills end! Last chance to shine.
Viewpoint Australia Archive6/5/2015 Abbott (Liberal) personal disapproval rating 63% and Shorten (Labor) personal disapproval rating 66%. Australians deserve better?
2/5/2105 Kesoema Indonesia's ambassador to Australia, claims his government's sympathies to the families and friends of executed Australians Sukumaran and Chan. ‘GTFOOT.’
1/5/2015 Fact Check. ‘In 2010, Labor's then Minister for home affairs, Brendan O'Connor, included Australia's opposition to the death penalty in his official ministerial direction to the AFP. This was removed from a new Ministerial direction issued in 2014 by the Abbott Governments, Justice Minister Michael Keenan.
30/4/2015 AFP, under the Howard Government in 2005, tips off Indonesian Police, ‘take what action deemed appropriate’? You can always count on the Abbott Liberal National ‘Coalition’ to do the right thing - after they've tried everything else? ‘Too little too late’?
29/4/2015 Joko Widodo a miserably weak leader executes the powerless to prove his strength. Not only does the judiciary receive bribes to make favourable decisions, ‘the Joke’ is presiding over a corrupt judicial system despite his anticorruption stance prior to his election. The largest Muslim Country in the world on our door step, sees death as strength. Australia needs to be worried.
27/4/2015 Plibersek, articulate, likable, able to make a connection with Australians, a Leader. Is the Labor Party able to make a transition this time?
23/4/2015 Australian Political Leadership (Liberal & Labor), these are the only jobs where being the best does not guarantee the top job on either side. Actually, we are being governed by liars, idiots, and fools? Australian’s a gullible mob, getting everything they deserve? Shit happens!
21/4/2015 Abbott & Hockey, gambling with Australia’s future health & prosperity. While the rest of the world is embracing renewables, our snollygosters keep promoting and subsidising coal and the mining industry. Renewables the high tech jobs of the future. Abbott & Hockey guiding Australia into a depression.
17/4/2015 Shorten, suggests a $300 million gift to WA, to stop the GST stoush. Got to cry, then laugh, then wonder how did the Labor Party elect a ‘doofus’ as their Leader? Serious decision need to be made, the polls are narrowing. The Labor Party is approaching the abyss.
16/4/2015 Abbott & Hockey show is now on the precipice of a huge stock market collapse. It will be a financial collapse far greater that the 1929 Great Depression. Abbott and Hockey incompetence will see the greatest loss of wealth in history; it will devastate the Australian Economy. Get ready for the pain!
15/4/2015 Abbott & Hockey, tax ordinary Australians and give tax breaks to Big Business despite tax evasion. Coalition (Liberal & Nationals) Government is for the benefit of its corporate constituent's only?
14/4/2015 Peter Costello former (LIB) Treasurer in Howard Government describes Abbott & Hockey’s pledge for “lower, simpler, fairer” taxes as some kind of “morbid joke”. Woo-rah!
13/4/2015 Federal approval rating Polls: Abbott approval 34%, Shorten approval 33%. God help us all!
11/4/2015 Labor Party between a 'rock and a hard place' with Shorten. The developing scenario is that the Shorten is incompetent. Was given a gift, ‘Abbotts continuing foot in mouth’, but has never been able to capitalise on any issue. His continued confused metaphors and inability to make any headway against arguably against the worst PM in history, has left the Australian Public disillusioned. Labor Party’s only ray of hope is that Shorten steps down, otherwise it will be an Abbott victory again. Time is running out!
8/4/2015 Labor Party, pollute Australia for the sake its Union mates jobs. Liberal Party pollute Australia for the sake of its Business mates profits. Nationals do as they are told by the Liberals, no original thought. Australian Greens want clean industries that don’t pollute and create jobs for the future. The choice is growth or sustainability.
1/3/2015 Fact Check. During the Liberals period in Government, Tax to GDP ratio averaged a chunky 23.4%. Tax to GDP actually peaked at 24.2% of GDP in 2004-05 and 2005-06 when the Howard Government took the gold medal for the highest taxing government in Australia’s history. Liberals can also claim the GST was their tax. Liberals proud to tax ordinary Australians while giving tax breaks and subsidies to Big Business and Billionaires. !
28/3/2015 Shorten, wasted time and opportunity. Has not been able to make headway against Abbott, arguably a laughing stock. Unable to inspire Australians, unable to construct a succinct argument, has not made a connection with Voters. It’s time to pass the baton to Tanya Plibersek. Shorten must resign for the good of the party. Labor has made a mistake with Shorten, enough is enough!
25/3/2015 Abbott verses Turnbull the difference. An illustration; If Abbott wants to get through a doorway that is shut, his primal instinct is to break it down, whereas Turnbull merely turns the handle and opens the door. Bully verses the Charmer? However the Hydra will keep going regardless of who is the Leader?
23/3/2015 Paradummy with its stable of publications and media groups is working all out to support the Abbott Government. Now it is manipulating the polls to show that Abbott Government is popular and making gains with the Australian Public? A need to reform Australian Media Laws, where Media operators within Australia must be Australian.
20/3/2015 Abbott, infinite stupidity. Compares the Opposition Leader to Dr Goebbels. Paul Joseph Goebbels was a German politician and Reich Minister of Propaganda in Nazi Germany from 1933 to 1945. One of Adolf Hitler's closest and most devoted followers, he was known for his zealous orations and deep and virulent anti-Semitism, which led to his strongly supporting the extermination of the Jews when the Nazi leadership developed their "Final Solution". Abbott a Rhodes Scholar, at home in the gutter? Disgraceful!!
18/3/2015 Abbott offends and insults just about everyone. China, Ireland, Canada, Scotland, Indonesians, Indigenous Australians, Asbestos Victims, Australian Defence Force, Older Australians, Victorians, Queenslanders, Pensioners, Vladimir Putin, Myanmar, United Nations, Human Rights Commissioner, Women, Gays, Lesbians, Sex Workers, Russia, Death of Digger, Intelligent people, Scientists, Insults a dying man, Insulting the Opposition, Cross bench Senators, Christians, Moslems, Morals of Australians, Victims of rape and incest, Voters and the list goes on...... How to win friends and influence people?
13/3/2015 Are these the idiot savant’s of Liberal Politics? Mr Tony ‘foot in mouth’ Abbott, Mr Joe ‘super thought bubble’ Hockey, and Mr Christopher ‘C U Next Tuesday’ Pyne. “We are all born ignorant, but one must work hard to remain stupid”, Ben Franklin. The best the Liberal Party can offer Australians’. Congratulations!?*? God help us!
3/3/2015 AUSTRALIA POST HAS NEVER MADE A LOSS. Price increase in postage to force Australians to use the internet. Abbott Government introducing the META data legislation to monitor traffic. Claims it will not read your e-mails or monitor you browsing history it will be for the benefit of security. “Political language... is designed to make lies sound truthful and murder respectable, and to give an appearance of solidity to pure wind” George Orwell. Whatever happened to Government Service for the benefit of all?
2/3/2015 Abbott, ‘dead man walking’? Frydenberg very close supporter of Abbott lets the cat out of the bag and, says ‘Malcolm Turnbull is ... a very good Prime Minister...’ The Australian’s live in hope, they have their fingers crossed and chant, ‘celebrate good times, come on’. The Liberal Party had its choice with Abbott, a disaster. The people’s choice is Turnbull, will the Members support the people?
28/2/2015 Abbott said Indonesia's President Joko Widodo was "carefully considering" his position on Chan and Sukumaran. Joko Widodo the Indonesian President calls Abbott a LIAR!? 'Our position is clear, our laws can't be interfered with.’ Australia we have a problem?
27/2/2015 The King will only return if there is over whelming support. Requires a crushing victory, a cleansing of the Praetorian guard and soldiers, a re-training of skills, a more palatable and voter friendly army. The King is waiting; the Steward must be removed and exiled. News of the possible removal of the Steward is giving a new found confidence and anticipation to the kingdom and a reason for celebration despite the destruction caused by his tyrannical reign.
26/2/2015 Professor Triggs, qualities 'decency', 'integrity', 'strength' and 'conviction'. Abbotts good qualities are um..? Time the Liberal Members pushed the dump button. Abbott, past his use by date just damaging Australia. An alarming scenario is that, Liberal Members actually agree with everything Abbott does and says!
25/2/2015 We seek him here, we seek him there, those Aussie’s seek him everywhere. Is he in heaven? Is he in hell? If you should see him, please do give a yell! That damned, elusive Shorten, what the hell? Unable to gain a ground swell of Australian voter support. More unpopular, than the most unpopular PM! Not reassuring. The return of the King spells a real problem for Labor.
24/2/2105 Abbott it’s time. Despite ongoing daily ‘foot in mouth’ and Murdoch’s daily favourable media spin and support? We all need to ask the question; who is running the country and whose interest is Abbott looking after? The puppet or the puppet master?
23/2/2015 Our closest neighbour, a Muslim country with a population of 250 million little ole Australia a population of 23 million. Yet, Abbott continues his wrecking ball ways. Has never made the transition from a three word slogan opposition leader to Prime Minister, it’s embarrassing. Making Australia less secure. Australians need to be worried.
22/2/2015 Greg Hunt environment minister? Really. The most incompetent joke in Australia’s history, the same DNA as Abbott? Birds of a feather flock together.
21/2/2015 Coalition Government (Liberal & Nationals), got rid of the Carbon Tax (a tax on polluters), got rid of the Mining Tax (Australian people should get a return on their resources; it can only be dug up once). The Federal Government now has a revenue problem. Liberals & Nationals, now want to increase the Tax on ordinary Australians (by increasing the GST). Incompetence? Goods & Services Tax introduced by the Liberals. Liberals, Tax the poor & subsidise big business.
20/2/2015 Abbott no diplomatic skills? Playing politics with people’s lives. If Chan and Sukumaran are not saved, it’s because of Abbott’s bully rhetoric of Indonesia, however if they are saved, it’s because of the hard work of the many people that saved them, in spite of Abbotts involvement. In order to sway people one must first be likable!
19/2/2015 John Howard sacrifices David Hicks for political gain? Encourages charges be brought against Hicks despite the fact he NEVER broke an Australian Law. Hicks has now been declared innocent by a US military court. Despite the ruling, Abbott the Australian Prime Minister declares him guilty. Abbott Judge & jury!
18/2/2015 Abbott, warns that continued and excessive use of solar power will gradually deplete and eventually destroy the sun. A Rhodes Scholar, seriously? An embarrassing advertisement for The Queen's College, Oxford? A laughing stock around the world.
17/2/2015 Abbott and his gang, try to remove Gillian Trigg as head of the Australian Human Rights Commission, who submitted a report into ‘children in immigration detention’. Abbott is obviously threatened by strong women that speak up and tell the truth. Did Abbott actually read the report, which was critical of both Liberal & Labor? Abbott again fails the leadership test saying, "the Human Rights Commission should be ashamed of itself". Old King Coal attacks the messenger, he should be ashamed!
16/2/2015 Abbott vindictiveness, a Captains call to remove Ruddock, as payback for spill? Surrounding himself with his gang, prepared to crush insurrection? Un-Australian, good Government starts when Abbott is removed, Australia needs leadership not medieval lunacy? Ruddock's reward for loyalty to the Liberal Party.
15/2/2015 Abbott office, claims Andrew Colvin (AFP) gave "prior consent", to Abbotts comments in Parliament. Did he? Is Abbott trying to shift blame for his earth-shattering incompetence? Liberal Party needs to be congratulated, for re-electing Abbott, otherwise the media would be bereft of news and commentary to report. We need a joke. Laughter is the best medicine!
14/2/2015 Joe Hockey's tenure as Treasurer seems intrinsically linked with that of Captain Tony Abbott. Unemployment increased to 6.4% the highest since 2002. Keep up the good work! Peas from the same pod. Carefully guiding Australia into a recession.
13/2/2015 Abbott, ‘holocaust of jobs’, comparing loss of jobs, to the deaths of Jews in the holocaust. Incredibly stupid.
12/2/2015 Abbott, out of control, details alleged evidence against terrorism suspects that have a potential for court proceedings to be prejudiced. Hides behind parliamentary privilege. Foot in mouth, again?
10/2/2015 Abbott convinces Senator Sean Edwards. Vote for me! Vote for me! Gullible? When you are desperate, you say things that you have no intention of implementing. A “competitive evaluation process”, is hocus-pocus, gibberish. Undertakings and decisions have already been, ‘Made in Japan’. No submarines will be built in Australia. Abbotts lies and deceit, makes Edwards look a fool. A $25 Billion vote was a joke? Ha Ha!
8/2/2105 Australia needs stimulus policies to avoid recession, however Liberal National Government want austerity measures. Liberal National Coalition driving Australia towards a depression. Not prepared to tax the Major Corporations that evade tax, it would rather tax middle and lower income Australians. Incompetent Financial Managers.
6/2/2015 Opinion poll of the Prime Minister, Tony Abbott: 72% Out of touch with ordinary people, 65% Arrogant, 63% Narrow-minded, 60% Erratic. Abbotts standing has to be embarrassing for the Liberal Party. Questions need to be asked about those Politicians’ who support Abbott. Misery apparently loves company!
5/2/2015 Abbott, a pathological liar, was NOT elected by the people of Australia to be Prime Minister? He was elected as Member for Warringah, to represent his electorate. The elected Members of the Liberal Party voted him in as Prime Minster. So when Abbott tells us that he deserves the job because he was elected by the People of Australia to be PM, it’s just another BIG FAT LIE.
4/2/2015 Patience, we are in Abbotts Liberal Party World at the moment and on the scale of all things bad and horrible Tony Abbott is merely an annoyance, much like flies in summer. Eventually winter comes!
3/2/2015 Abbott delusional? Claims to be a good Captain, a brave Captain, a Captain with character? Abbott, somehow has explained to himself, his own rhetoric and now he believes it to be a fact. Laughter is the best medicine.
2/2/2015 When Abbott is finally discarded a Double Dissolution Election is required. By now everyone knows what the Liberals stand for, and the changing of the Captain does not get rid of the Barnacles and the incompetent Crew. There needs to be a political cleansing, so no matter who gets elected, they will have clear air to breathe. More than a change in Leadership is required.
30/1/2015 Abbott, loves the photo opportunity with Rosie Batty, Australian of the Year for her crusade against family violence. Abbott cuts funding for National programs for violence prevention and legal services. The cuts threaten to trap women in domestic violence. The Minister for Women. Sinister?
29/1/2015 Abbott, wins the prize for being the most untrustworthy and incompetent Prime Minister in Australia's History. Are there moves afoot to change the Leader in order to save the Liberal Party’s credibility or will they be like lemmings and follow the Leader over the cliff? Well, Abbott can claim to be the best at something? A great joke if it was not so serious.
27/1/2015 Abbott, staunch monarchist, insults all Australians. Australians not good enough to be number one pick for an Aussie Knighthood. It’s my choice, my decision, my game; he is a great Australian Royal? Quit whingeing, my second choice was Houston. May you say, ‘God Save the Queen’, for nothing will save the Liberal Party at the next Election?
26/1/2015 Shorten uninspiring, costing the Labor Party five percentage points. Unable to construct a logical and succinct argument without resorting to clumsy metaphors and a high low pitch. Really, has not found the pulse of Australians yet.
22/1/2015 Tony Abbott the Liberal Parties greatest leader?! Single handily has redefined the Liberal Party’s trustworthiness, to the point that not only is Tony Toxic, but the Liberal Brand has become poisonous. Got to laugh, the only ones who cannot see the ‘forest for the trees’ are the Liberals. Keep up the good work?
17/1/2015 Touched with the 'M' stick, Tony Dumb Dumb blames Smokin Joe for unpalatable $20 GP Tax? However he who fights and runs away lives to fight another day, the Abbott creed? Just in case a mutiny occurs.
8/1/2015 Liberals under John Howard introduced the Goods & Services Tax (GST) in 1995. Now the Liberal Abbott Government is spruiking the idea that an increase the GST is necessary because of Corporate competitive pressures and the need to raise more taxes in general. The argument goes Corporate Australia needs to be compensated and the corporate tax rate reduced if the GST is increased. Why? The GST is a tax on ordinary Australians not a tax on Corporate Australia. Put simply the GST is a tax on the consumer. Why make ordinary hard working Australians pay more tax when the problem emanates from Corporate Tax Evasion of billions of dollars and the Liberal Governments refusal to have its Corporate mates brought to account. Liberals (the high taxing) Party.
6/1/2015 The Australian, the Herald Sun & Fox News all part of the same stable. Defined by Jon Stewart, ‘...a biased organisation relentlessly promoting and ideological agenda under the rubric of being a news organisation.’ Australians want real news not Murdoch’s opinionated propaganda.
3/1/2015 In Australia 2015, we have serious problems to solve and we need serious people to solve them and whatever you’re particular problem, one thing that we can count on is that Abbott is not the least bit interested in solving it. Abbott is interested in two things only; ‘making you afraid of it and telling you who is to blame for it’. That’s the way he believes he will hold his job and get re-elected!
31/12/2014 Best of the Worst. Liberal Leadership. 39%Turnbull, 27% Bishop, 9% Abbott, 5% Hockey, 1% Morrison, 19% A jack ass or someone else.
30/12/2014 Liberal reflections of 2014, ‘Age of Entitlement is over the Age of Privilege has begun.’ Abbotts ‘Animal Farm’?
23/12/2014 Abbott, “the repeal of the carbon tax means a $550 a year benefit for the average family.” However Momentum Energy has advised that the repeal of the Carbon Tax will make NO changes to existing rates. Is everything that leaves his mouth a big fat LIE?
22/12/2014 Raising the Goods & Services Tax (GST) is a tax on ordinary Australians not Corporations. Corporate Tax Evasion is the problem. We need a Tax that kicks in when creative accounting schemes and tax havens are used, such a tax could be a Turnover Tax. Example; Australia's largest coalminer, Glencore, despite income of $15 billion, paid almost zero tax over the past three years if a turnover tax was applied at say 20% the tax collectable is $3 billion, a good start to fixing the deficit. Hockey's choice is tax the rich Corporations or tax ordinary Australians? Which?
19/12/2014 Gillard cleared by Royal Commission, the question now is will the lying, homophobic, misogynistic, sexist, bully, apologise?
15/12/2014 Hockey, ‘we are on the right track’, 2014 was a great year. Incompetence, guiding Australia into a recession.
14/12/2014 Turnbull, buys back aging copper network from Telstra, the same network that Howard Government sold. Back to the future!
12/12/2014 Education reform is the corner stone of Australia’s future, just ask Abbott. Daughter awarded $60,000 scholarship based on merit? This scholarship was never advertised. Students at the college in Sydney had no idea such prize was available. Friendship with Liberal supporter Les Taylor who sits as Chairman on the Board of Governors had nothing to do with it? WTF?
11/12/2014 Grima Wormtongue, council and adviser to King 'T', a place befitting the snivelling, chief advisor.
9/12/2014 In the reshuffle of barnacles on the good ship lollypop, the Abbott barnacle definitely needs attention
6/12/2014 Does the ‘L’ in Liberal stands for Lemming? Let us all pray that it does. Australians live in hope.
2/12/2014 Bishop , ‘the best form of Government is a benevolent dictatorship’. As dependent Speaker of the House of Representatives she is living the dream. Setting a low standard by any measure. Extreme bias.
1/12/2014 Abbott, Victorian Election it will be, 'a referendum on the East West Link'. Now he won’t accept the verdict. Weasel?
24/11/2014 David Johnston (Liberal Defence Minister), advises NO confidence in Australian Workers to build submarines. Said ‘I wouldn't trust them to build a canoe’, should be sacked immediately. Promise before election, review after election, the Liberal way. Liberals cannot be trusted? Un-Australian.
23/11/2014 Clyde the orang-utan is an ape. Lambie smart move. Go Jacqui.
7/11/2014 Lambie, gutsy stand for our Australian Defence Force. Champion for what is just.
1/11/2014 Liberals, secret tax trap. They gave us the Good & Services Tax (GST) and now they want to increase the GST. The Liberals also argue that Multi-billion dollar Corporations are paying too much tax. However the same Billion Dollar Corporations are evading tax. It’s time the Abbott Government went after the Corporations instead of the common people to fix the tax problem. The Governments own Future Fund, the superannuation fund of Politicians’ & the Public service is in fact a tax evader. Abbott Government, looking after itself and its mates, Leaners not Lifters.
24/10/2014 Paradummy, the most insidious organisation on the planet, never let the truth get in the way of a good story. A propaganda delivery system relentlessly pushing a Liberal agenda. Media laws need to be changed to remove this cancer.
15/10/2014 Abbott, diplomatic and people skills? Picks a fights with a Nuclear Power Leader, claiming he will ‘shirtfront’ Putin when they meet. Its time Abbott removed himself from the world stage and concentrated on domestic politics. Scary that people actually voted for this guy. The foot in mouth PM making Australia less secure.
13/10/2014 Abbott on death of digger, ‘shit happens’. Australian Defence Personnel told to risk their lives in war, earn $56,000. Abbott leading the troops from his bunker, surrounded by security, well away from the action, earns $507,000. Australian Defence Personnel told to go fight in a war, risk their lives however their worth is a mere 1.5% and to achieve this they need to show productivity gains? WTF? Disgraceful! A one term mistake!
5/10/2014 Shorten, uninspiring, as time unfolds it is becoming obvious he will never gain traction on what is fundamentally an incompetent Liberal Government, propped up by Paradummy. If there was a prize for picking losers the ALP would win. Labor is now stuck with a dummy.
14/9/2014 Abbott, sides with the major polluters of the world, India & China. Climate change is ‘CRAP’. Misery love’s company. Embarrassing and dangerous.
9/9/2014 Abbott, is he a dual citizen? A dual citizen is ineligible to be PM? Why has he refused to show the documentation? Why the refusal of freedom of information?
17/8/2014 Abbott, born in London England, tells the Scottish people that independence is not in their best interest. Is he Australian or English?
15/8/2014 Hockeyrobbin, 'poorest people either don't have cars or actually don't drive very far'. Give to the rich and take from the poor. The corner stone of his befuddled budget. Where is my Chauffeur and Cuban?
9/8/2014 Abetz, abortion-cancer link? Another Minister, smart as a whip?
7/8/2014 Bolt, Tony my friend, honest & trustworthy. Damn it, should have got it in writing? Ha Ha!
3/8/2014 China accounts for 32% of all exports in goods and services from Australia. Chinese state-owned newspaper, calls Foreign Minister Julie Bishop a ‘complete fool’. Nervous perceptions, when the Dragon sneezes will the Kangaroo catch pneumonia?
1/8/2014 Abbott, got it wrong with the MH370 now doubling up with MH17, prepared to take risks with other people’s lives. With help from Paradummy, milking the disaster for self interest?
9/7/2014 Abbott praises Japan’s war prowess; to rape, pillage, torture, kill. Abbotts famous quote when Australian digger lost, ‘shit happens’. China our biggest trading partner 'incensed', as it lost 20 million people at the hand of the Japanese war prowess. In every respect Abbott unsuitable as PM.
27/6/2014 Australia's largest coalminer, Glencore, despite income of $15 billion, paid almost zero tax over the past three years. Abbott & Hockey taxing pensioners, the sick, unemployed, students, families while protecting Big business because they are so vulnerable?
21/6/2014 Despite the incredible right wing stupidity of the Abbott Government, Shorten is unable to gain traction with the Australian Public. Is it the way he talks, or is it that he is bereft of a plan and hopes everything will be O.K. on the day?
17/6/2014 Abbotts diplomatic skills on the precipice of the Australian Economy wipeout. Japan ‘‘our best friend in Asia’’? China frowns. East Jerusalem as “disputed” rather than “occupied”? Australian Farmers very nervous at impact on exports. Embarrassing foot in mouth,no longer a fair description.
13/6/2014 Abbott & Hockey uselessness, destroying consumer and business confidence, guiding Australia into a recession. Get Ready. Get ready for pain.
3/6/2014 Abbotts, ‘unhinged and demented’ biased attack dog ‘Boltz’, fuels leadership speculation. Current poll for Liberal Leadership 77% Turnbull, 7% Abbott, 3% Hockey, 1% Bishop, some on else 12%. Lucky seven, lucky for some.
2/6/2014 Pyne, confuses everyone. The scheme where downward pressure is impossible to achieve, a Degree will double if not triple in cost. Students can start their working life burdened with debt and students will be the big winners?*#!? To overcome this huge burden will Bankruptcy become a fait accompli once a Degree is achieved?
30/5/2014 Abbott, ‘I think it would be folly to expect that women will ever dominate or even approach equal representation in a large number of areas simply because their aptitudes, abilities and interests are different for physiological reasons.’ The Minister for Women's Affairs.
27/5/2014 Abbott Government diverts millions from the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse to its political addenda the Royal Commission into the former government's home insulation scheme. In February Senator Brandis was asked if there had been any offsets from other inquiries to fund the home insulation scheme Royal Commission and replied: ''No.'' Abbott Government, LIES becoming a very natural Liberal trait.
23/5/2014 Abbott, questions raised on $60,000 scholarship awarded based on merit? Nudge nudge, wink wink. Beyond the pale?
18/5/2014 Hockey, my target, “Everyone in Australia has to help do the heavy lifting on the budget,” especially pensioners, the sick, the unemployed, those who want an education, low income earners, families and anyone who is rich enough to own a car.
14/5/2014 Abbott 2013, 'No cuts to education, no cuts to health, no cuts to pensions, no cuts to ABC or SBS and No new taxes.' Liar, Liar, pants on fire!
12/5/2014 Bulls Make Money, Bears Make money, Pigs Get Slaughtered’ Read my lips, there is a difference between a Tax, Duty, Levy, Toll, Excise, Tariff, Impost?*?!. Da.. WTF! Furthermore there is a distinction between knowledge and specific knowledge, between promises and what is put in writing, between what I say and what I mean, core and non core promises for I am the suppository. Voters get what they deserve and now it’s time to slaughter the pigs. Da..D’oh!
30/4/2014 Abbotts, paid parental leave up to $75,000 excessive and irresponsible. Reduced to $50,000 and now promoted as, 'a great saving of $25,000' for the taxpayers. WTF? Pork dressed up as Lamb.
27/4/2014 Prelude to a befuddled Hockey budget; you put your Right Hand in, you pull your right hand out, you put your Left Hand in and you stick it in a clamp, you do a little waddle and you suppress your smirk, that what it’s all about. Ha Ha!
16/4/2014 New liberal definition of the word ‘LIE’ is ‘massive memory fail’.
14/4/2014 The greatest transfer of wealth in Australian established by the Liberals. The Future Fund, sounds as if it's for all Australians. The sale of Telstra, proceeds put aside for Politician's and Public Servants retirement. What was an asset that belonged to all Australians is now the retirement nest egg of just the few. Hockey tries not to smile and warns, 'everyone will have to cop budget pain or expect lower living standards'. Spreading the load?
12/4/2014 Abbott, 'very confident' signals are from MH370 black box. Mouth in motion before mind into gear, again? Embarrassing.
26/3/2014 Abbott, prepared to sacrifice manufacturing, farmers and rural communities in the worst drought in recent times. Governments are elected to manage the economy from the ravages for the elements and the fluctuations of the business cycle and to provide fair services to all Australians in difficult times. To accomplish this Abbott announces the reintroduction of the Knights and Dames Honours? Nothing better to do!
22/3/2014 Abbott sets precedent on travel expenses, ‘deny everything, until caught out, then refund it and then everything is OK’. Liberal Party get caught out on questionable political donations, if refunded, is it O.K.? If a bank robber gets caught and then refunds the haul is everything O.K.? The Abbott accountably bar is set so low its impossible to limbo. No wonder the general public is so cynical of Politicians.
19/3/2104 Sinodinos, outstanding role model of Liberal values? Credentialed Chairman and Treasurer? Leading by example? D'oh!
17/3/2014 Middle Class Australia is not made up of just families. A middle class family of say, husband & wife and 4 children under 10 years, carries only two votes. While a couple, and four singles carries 6 votes. Which group is the target audience. Give me the numbers! Why do Politicians continue to see voters as families? Sick and tired of supporting families, the age of entitlement is over?
6/3/2104 Rasputin the Mad Monk, ‘timber workers are the ultimate conservationists,’ seriously? Is there a DNA link to Putin?
19/11/2013 Abbott, ‘my mouth is open, here comes my foot’. Diplomatic & slogan skills are finally being recognised by the Indons. Even with 'Paradummy's' favourable, one-sided media coverage before and since the election, 'you cannot teach an old dog new tricks’. Just like Howard, sorry is the hardest word.
11/11/2013 Abbott Team loaded with 'family jobs', 'job swappers' and 'double dippers'? The big question, will the Queen of Mean be given a plumb job? I think so!
25/10/2013 Hunt, Wikipedia the Holy Grail of Liberal knowledge, first reference when information is required. ‘Gotta’ laugh.
24/10/2013 Abbott, "Fire is a part of the Australian experience". “I think the risks are well within the bounds of what's acceptable”. United Nations says bushfires are "absolutely" linked to climate change. A serious problem, but Rasputin says, ‘Climate change is absolute crap’. The political game where doing nothing has a catastrophic cost for humanity. No matter who gets elected, Government always gets in.
12/10/2013 Japanese Government, killing Whales to feed its Blood Lust. Tokyo Electric Power (TEPCO) flooding the Oceans of the World with Radioactive Water from the Fukushima Nuclear Plant. No solution in sight. The Barbarians have lost control and the World will pay.
6/10/2013 Abbott, attends fellow Liberal Members wedding and claims taxpayers funded travel expenses. When questioned by the Media, decided to repay the monies. Is this a case of oops, sorry I got caught? Again? Stench wafting from the head down.
1/10/2013 Brandis, ’attack dog’ against Slipper & Thompson on expenses claimed. Claimed expenses to attend Wedding on the taxpayer’s tab. As a Professional Senior Politician a mistake of this nature is questionable? Is this a case of snout in the trough, sorry I got caught?
29/9/2013 Abbott, “One of the differences between government and opposition, is that oppositions basically have nothing to do except make a noise” ... D’oh!
28/9/2013 Abbott, central ‘suppository’ as opposition leader was to “stop the boats”, now as PM, it’s ‘hide the boats’, obviously this issue is just “a passing irritant”.
18/9/2013 Abbott, despite the huge talent pool of women in the Liberal Party obviously they are not up to the job? We reward based on the best, not on gender? My team, my choice, my club?
9/9/2013 With the election of my right foot, confusion reigns as to whether the the Queen of mean, the nasty piece of work has fooled the people again. Despite her comfortable 9%, will she be ditched as the wicked witch?Will Rumpelstiltskin cast an evil spell, to bring back the nasty beating heart of the party, will goodness triumph over iniquity? Mirror, mirror on the wall who was the nasties of all?
2/9/2013 Abbott, Rhodes Scholar, Statesman, Sophisticated wordsmith, articulates his deep and insightful suppository on the Syrian conflict. ‘It's not goodies versus baddies, it's baddies versus baddies.’
26/8/2013 Abbott, promises trust and nothing else. Costing on paid parental leave policy a secret? A policy that will be funded through a tax on big business, that eventually will be paid for by taxpayers, a tax that will cost more than the carbon tax and mining tax. A scheme originally devised by the Howard-Costello Government that rewarded women with a baby bonus to have children. Now the scheme is targeted to benefit the Liberal well healed with a $75,000 bonus to have children, not to mention the paternity leave to be paid to the stud. In a world where population is already a problem this is a policy not needed and not affordable. A tax on the superannuation of retirees. yippie ki-yay mothe..............!
21/8/2013 Abbott, ‘paid parental leave’ fully funded and costed however it is a secret? We will not let the 'challenged' voters see our costing for they will not understand our befuddled figures? We will leave it until the last minute to disclose our costing or maybe not at all? We should not be scrutinised, for we are born to rule? Trust me!
13/8/2013 Abbott, "No-one, however smart, however well-educated, however experienced, is the suppository of all wisdom, and I believe that we will be a much better government because we have a very strong team." Hockey suggested if unsure of a word look it up in the dictionary. Well....suppository; a medicated mass that melts at body temperature, designed to be inserted into the rectum, vagina, or urethra. Words, so many to choose from! Let's cut education funding?
11/8/2013 Hockey, 'treasury costings dubious.' Is this the same Treasury that the Liberals used when they were in Government? 'Our policies costings and funding will have a Capital 'A' audit as well as a small 'a' audit by a competent, honest and respectable accounting firm other than Treasury.' This information is highly classified; the Australian People would not know how to correctly scrutinise our figures, so we will leave it until the last minute, if at all? ... D’oh!
4/8/2013 Hockey, doing the hockey pokey, befuddled concern about the cost of Tobacco on pensioner’s cost of living. Is there an ulterior motive? We know Tobacco Kills butt! Will this help his Budget bottom line if elected? The policy with benefits? Less pensioner’s leaves more?
6/5/2013 Interesting the ‘hutzpah’ that Abbott exudes especially since he has not had to account for anything that has passed his lips. All we get is one line snippets of diatribe and photo shoots of, ‘Ridin along on my pushbike’. This is the first election where an opposition leader has not had to articulate his vision for Australia. We have been given an inkling as to what will happen, with his lemon of a NBN plan, ‘fibre to the node’. But behind the slogans, rhetoric and foot in mouth is the greatest hoodwink or booby trap for the Australian Voters. Get ready for the pain, ‘O’yeah baby’, ‘B-B-B-Baby, you just ain't seen nothin' yet!’
29/4/2013 It’s about time Politician and the Public sector (Federal, State and Local Government) were bound by the same rules as the general Public. Superannuation returns for Politicians’ and the Public Sector go in one direction up, while for the rest of us, our returns are determined by the oscillation of the market cycle. ‘One rule for the Rulers one rule for the Ruled.’
23/4/2013 It’s time for the Liberals to support our farmers, it’s time the Nationals actually support farmers, it’s time Labor supported our farmers, it’s time to bite the bullet and give our farmers help just like the rest of the world does for its farmers. We need to protect the Goulburn Valley food bowl. We need to help our Dairy Farmers. Its time the Political Parties to support Australia and Australians. Supermarkets have too much power it's time to examine market dominance.
11/4/2013 Turnbull, internet savvy or a snake oil salesman selling a LEMON under the guise of a node? A long term high cost for the public for a short term political outcome.
28/2/2013 Japanese Minister makes it clear that the blood lust for whales will never stop. It is now time to send the Australian Navy to protect Australian Waters and our Wildlife. We cannot ignore the barbarians at the gate.
11/10/2012 Armed with an electricity bill from Hetty. Abbott at his best, again shows us how easily he can make a fool of himself. Australians want a PM that has character, not one that is a character. Endemic itch for the Liberal Party.
1/1/2012 Both the Liberal and Labor Parties support Alcoa's toxic pollution of the environment and have abandoned Anglesea Residents right to have clean unpolluted air
Anglesea Residents want clean air. Anglesea Residents want Alcoa Mine to CLOSE. Are Anglesea Cancers an act of God? Anglesea residents left to ponder the health effects of toxic plumes and an acid river that no longer flows naturally.
“Vicarius Filii Del” 66629/7/2015 Cardinal George Pell criticises Pope Francis over his climate change stance. Pell cut from the same cloth as his friend Abbott. ‘Dumber & Dumber,’ an inspiring movie?
6/6/2015 The Keeper of the Catholic Church’s dirty secrets, Bishop Ronald Mulkearns. In charge at Ballarat when some of Australia’s worst paedophiles preyed on children, has no plans to help the Royal Commission. A wonderful life in retirement, living in Aireys Inlet a sea change on the world famous Great Ocean Road, life is good. The Catholic Church true to form?
3/6/2015 The hierarchy of Catholic Church put their propaganda machinery into overdrive, in support of Cardinal George Pell, telling the Australian Public, Pell is a great guy? The Church again looking after its own. The victims naturally not afforded the same support.
2/6/2015 Pope Francis, ready to cut Cardinal George Pell loose. Mr Saunders as a close adviser of the Pope, described Pell as, "cold-hearted" and "sociopathic". America Magazine Vatican correspondent Gerard O'Connell said Pope Francis would "not protect anybody" and would not hesitate to take action against Cardinal Pell. The tidal wave of public opinion is approaching the Catholic Church, it cannot be seen as trying to protect its assets at the expense of the flock. Pell is damaged and his position in the Vatican and the Catholic Church is untenable.
27/5/2015 Cardinal George Pell lived with Gerald Ridsdale in the St Alipius Presbytery in Ballarat in 1973. Documents have emerged that Cardinal Pell helped move now jailed and convicted paedophile Ridsdale between Parishes when Cardinal Pell was on the Diocesan Consulters Committee in 1982. Is this a tangled web?
25/5/2015 Cardinal George Pell evil by his own words. “I am fully apologetic and absolutely sorry.” Pell insisted, “I don’t believe we have a moral obligation” to increase the settlement amounts for sex abuse victims. “Abortion is a worse moral scandal than priests sexually abusing young people.”
23/5/2015 Catholic Church, spent more than $1.5 million defending serial paedophile Robert Best? The Christian Brothers, a Catholic Order apparently has no plans to expel those paedophiles that have been sent to prison for their actions. Brother Clinch said that there were no plans to start the “long and complicated’ process of expulsion. Catholic Church absolutely no remorse, they just don’t get it. Catholic Church defending the indefensible?
21/5/2015 Pell, taking refuge in the Vatican can only further damage the transparency and sincerity of the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church, Wolf in sheep's clothing?
10/4/2015 Catholic Church knew of paedophile’s within its ranks for many years. Systematically planned a contingency fund in case details of activities finally hit the fan. Questions again need to be raises as to what Pell actually knew, when he knew and what he did when he became aware of the crimes. Pell also need to answer why the church was obstructionist and uncaring to its victims. Those that covered up the abuse are as guilty as the perpetrators.
1/3/2015 Pell, given a job to free up Vatican Funds for the poor. Yet, in six months has lived a lavish lifestyle of the rich and famous, spending in excess of $700k AUD. Matthew 4:9....."All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me." This guy wanted to be the Pope, creepy? Money, money, money? Do as I say, not as I do?
7/2/2015 Pope Francis, disturbing, tells us what the Catholic Church believes. Hitting children is O.K. “how beautiful”. Nothing has changed a sinister organisation! Lucky Saint Malachy, tells us he is the last one.
25/8/2014 Luke 16:13
"No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve both God and money." Exactly where do George & Frank stand?
21/8/2014 Pell, leading by example, continues defending the indefensible.
12/8/2014 The Church of paedophilia promotes from within for a job well done in the protection of its assets? The devil within? Money, Money, Money?
26/3/2014 Mr Abbott close friends with Mr Pell, a creepy association?
25/3/2014 Pell, knew nothing, despite being in charge and directing counsel? Pell claims he was right and all his close advisers are wrong? Does this mean everyone is lying except Pell or is it the other way around? The Catholic Church Pope Francis promotes Pell on performance! Da! Those in charge who perverted the course of justice are as guilty as perpetrators. Hey Frank its now your turn, Mr Pell has lots of baggage, what will you do?
6/12/2013 Pell, to advise Francis!? A Vatican joke?
5/10/2013 It’s time the Catholic Church paid TAXES on its 50 billion annual income rather than voice it is a champion for the poor. “The Church, all of us should divest ourselves of worldliness,” said Pope Francis. Well it’s time to lead by example and give to the poor. Your turn Frank?
27/5/2013 Pell, cornered into a creepy admission that the Catholic Church covered-up paedophile behaviour, by deceptive and misleading conduct. The Catholic Church decides the amount of compensation to be paid for its behaviour. Daa... Its all about money, greed, power and how the Church is above the law. Church assets in Australia in excess of $16 billion. Cardinal Pell, is not prepared to increase compensation levels given in Australia to that given in the USA. In Australia $75,000 maximum whereas in the USA its $1.5 million. The Church being the perpetrator, decides the amount of compensation? WTF?
26/12/2012 Pell, embarrassing, out of step with the community. The Catholic Church and its dominions are not above the law. The medieval confessional hocus-pocus does not absolve the sins of the father. Pell has lost the plot! The outdated multi billion tax breaks to religious corporations needs to be removed. The public wants the victims protected and the paedophile clergy to be prosecuted including those in charge of the deceptive conduct (clergy & police). Mandatory reporting is required. The rotten fish need to be jailed.
7/8/2015 Andrews Government sticks it up Anglesea Community. Refuses to lift the veil of secrecy that Alcoa has enjoyed for the past 50 years, of toxic pollution , subsidies, and lies? Labor voted down the Greens & Liberals resulting in the retention of Alcoa's Freedom of Information exemption. GTFOT, why?
5/8/2015 National Party of Australia – Vic, wants to change its name to The National Country Party – Vic. A lap dog with the an infestation of fleas will not fool the Victorian people?
6/2/2015 Michael O’Brien (former Liberal Treasurer), East West Link Contract, sold Victoria down the river. Liberals obviously have no faith in the Judicial System. Corrupting the Political System?
15/12/2014 Revealed, East West Link's $2.1bn Liberal black hole was to be filled by tolls. A secret Coalition tax on the Victorian travelling public. Liberal lies, facts and undertakings are all, one and the same. Lying is as natural as breathing air.
5/12/2014 Victorian Liberal Party, following the footsteps of the Great One, the One and Only, the Guru, the Spiritual Leader, a Role Model, Tony Abbott. A Guy thing?
Victorian Viewpoint Archive31/11/2014 Paradummy backs the Liberal and National Party in the Victorian Election 2014. Sly fox?
11/11/2014 Napthine, naughty, naughty, fib, fib. Tells us that the East West Link will only cost $2 billion. It has now been revealed that the true cost to the Victorian Taxpayer will be $17.8 billion and more. Liberals have refined the art of lying to the extent that Liberal Lies and Liberal Facts are one and the same. Treating the general public as stupid.
9/11/2014 Napthine, spending like a drunken sailor, in the throes of a death roll, will promise the world to get elected, cannot be trusted. It’s time to remove the Liberal wart.
5/11/2014 Coker (Labor) Candidate for Polwarth, finally the so called Independent Councillor is in fact a member of the Labor Party. While as Councillor & Mayor of the Surf Coast Shire she has presided and voted for ever increasing rates and increased remunerations for Councillors. What about the struggling Ratepayers, yes they vote?
26/10/2014 Napthine, pursues the sympathy vote with the public launch of his son’s medical dilemmas? Smells of political desperation. Has given up on jobs, in his electorate. Yes, to dirty Coal, no to clean renewables. Taking us all, 'Back to the Future’.
7/10/2014 Napthine (LIB) to create 200,000 jobs at a cost of $167,000 per job. Andrews (ALP) to create 100,000 jobs at a cost of $10,000 per job. Will Napthine promise anything to get elected as long as the Victorian taxpayer pays for it, like a shark thrashing for survival?
4/9/2014 Finally we know the Liberal and Labor candidates for Polwarth. It shall be known as; 'The clash of dumber and dumber'.
28/9/2014 Napthine Government, insistence to sign, East West Tunnel contract with a $500 million Golden parachute clause, not in the interest of Victorians. Remember Crown’s $200 million, Golden parachute clause, not in Victorian tax payers interest. Liberals looking after its mates? Liberals cannot be trusted?
12/8/2014 Napthine said he expected the unemployment rate to “remain stable at 6.25 per cent”. The four figures released since have been 6.6, 6.8, 6.6 and now 7 per cent. Will history repeat?
25/7/2014 Paradummy and his minions at it again as we approach the Victorian State Election. It’s time to revise the Australian Media Laws. Recent British debacle with Paradummy has highlighted his influence. In the USA, a foreign entity cannot control media; same rule should apply in Australian.
4/6/2014 Napthine Government, problems all Liberal generated. A stinking carcass. An election is required to clear the stench.
7/5/2014 Napthine budget, more Roads and a Casino Station with a scenic Western Suburbs detour to Airport? Since coming to office has cut $11 billion from spending now in one fell swoop will splash cash to the tune of $11 billion promoting (PPP's) Private & Public Partnerships where all Victorian’s will pay and continue to pay. Is there an election underway?
20/4/2014 Terry Mulder Liberal MP for Polwarth invited to public meeting regarding Anglesea concerns as to Air Quality and the Health Affects to Residents from the Alcoa coal mine. REFUSES TO ATTEND. Alcoa is more important that the health of his constituents?
10/3/2014 Productivity Commission, recommends that land holders have legal cost for any dispute paid by energy companies when, drilling for unconventional gas and oil (fracking). Will the Napthine Government adopt this recommendation or will it look after its business mates? Damn the general public we are liberal.
4/3/2014 Napthine Government. Morwell. It’s all safe except for.....you know toxic fallout, smoke, chemicals breathing difficulties.....
23/1/2014 Nero fiddled while Rome burned, Emergency Services Minister Kim Wells went to tennis while Victoria burned. Is Napthine bereft of Leadership or will he step up and sack the Minister?
10/11/2013 Napthine Government take scalpel & cuts loose 27,000 sick children a year in the health system while the Treasury Department has a credit card taxpayer funded bonding booze bash. Go figure?
18/9/2013 Napthine, Shaw questions, 'just the two of us
we can make it if we try'? Lust for power, at a cost to integrity.
12/8/2013 Napthine, ambulance service not in chaos? Efficiency, productivity, reduce costs, Patient care, ramping of ambulances, funding of hospitals, maintain AAA credit rating, build tunnels, displace residents, do deals with business, living the dream racing cars. Is calling an Ambulance like a lottery; when will your number come up? 'Forest for the trees'
7/5/2013 Victorian 'Napthine' Government and Public Private Partnerships or (P.P.P’s). Does this means is that the Government & some lucky Private Companies will have an opportunity to tap in to ‘rivers of gold’ monies, where the Victorian Taxpayers accepts responsibility for the risk and the Private Companies get to gouge the public of funds on an ongoing basis Indexed to the Consumer Price? Creative accounting? Pay and pay some more....D’oh!
8/4/2011 'Alcoa are a good corporate citizen and have been here since 1961 and they have an option for another 50 years. I don’t want to pre-empt anything but I also think it is dangerous to point the finger at anyone … it is not appropriate, 'said Terry Mulder Liberal MP for Polwarth.
Anglesea Residents want clean air. Anglesea Residents want Alcoa to CLOSE. Are Anglesea Cancers an act of God? Anglesea residents left to ponder the health effects of toxic plumes and an acid river that no longer flows naturally.
Snouts in the trough?15/4/2015 Libby Coker, independent Surf Coast Councillor? Presided over ever increasing Rate Increases in the Surf Coast Shire. ALP Polwarth candidate in the Victorian State Election 2015 and lost. Now ALP Corangamite candidate for next Federal Election. Paid by the Surf Coast Rate Payers to look after rate payer’s needs, not to campaign for the Labor Party. Independent? Ha!
14/4/2015 Surf Coast Shire, ever-increasing Council Rates and NO productivity savings. Council staff numbers need to be abridged and executive packages reduced. Council’s best is just not good enough. We need to get rid of either State Government or Local Government. Which?
Coker, responsible for high rate increases. Not interested in the struggling ratepayers. The word productivity is a word difficult to comprehend? Daa... Council need to be able to fund its commitments, so, Councillors vote to get paid more? D'oh.
Surf Coast Shire the anti-business Shire where rates are charged with an additional 90 percent premium to all Commercial and Industrial premises. At a time when Businesses are struggling, questions are being raised as to the competency of the Surf Coast Shire Councillors and Executive in manageing spending and reducing rates. Every person begins at his or her level of competence then tends to rise to his or her level of incompetence.
Mathew Guy said the council was ''routinely viewed as the most incompetent in the state - this is an absolutely perfect example of why people are fed up with local government''.
