    Well said, that man. If he was more articulate he might have mentioned ruinables, the population ponzi, the great replacement or any other left policy that has bankrupted the place. A refreshing change from ScuMo’ other stunts where he flies in and the locals don’t know until he’s gone.

    Have to disagree.
    Just another whining dickhead in a pub.

    Edgeworth is bogan and lefty. I go through there sometimes.

    Says he worked in the mines. I’d bet he was a union organizer. These days the miners aren’t so lefty.

    On the other hand, did the ABC have anything to say about Albo refusing to answer a reasonable question by a voter at an outdoor press conference in WA?
    Knowing the ABC, I presume no!

    He’s had too much to drink and for once I felt sorry for Morrison.

    The single biggest thing Scummo could do for the cost of living is to stop misdirecting taxpayer monies into the renewables scam. But since cost of living isn’t a priority, well…

    As for the entitled drunk. No doubt he’s spent many years there at the bar, the tab, and the pokies, “investing” the profits of his 30 years in the mines (with nothing to show for it), and now expects someone/anyone else to pick up his tab.

    The labor/greens tropes of “negative gearing” and “franking credits” are a dead-set giveaway for how this elderly brat rolls…he will forever be voting for the biggest handout (paid for by his grandchildren, eventually, maybe). Loser.

    Good spot, Terry.
    Amazing how he had those fairly obscure talking points up his sleeve.

  8. Rohan says:

    Terry, the biggest thing SlowMo could do to ease the cost of living pressures, is to completely unwind the central planning of our economy. You know, the bit where the bureacrats and politicians decided on which sections of the economy can remain open and which of us are not essential, subsequently thrown on the scrap heap in the name of public health.

    But he won’t. Because he’s a centre-left socialist.

    The man told the Prime Minister he had worked in the mines for 30 years, but his retirement was being affected by tight restrictions on pension payments.

    “You can have a million dollar house you can have $250,000 … listen to me for a change, right $250,000 in the bank, you can have negative gearing and franking credits, but a disability pensioner can’t have any income,” he said.

    “Well, I’ve had a go, mate, I’ve worked all my life and paid my taxes.”

    “I’ve paid taxes – not enough clearly compared to what was spent during that time, but now I want them all back, with interest, via loans taken out against the children of my childrens future labours and you better do it or we’re all going to band together and vote in the guy who will!”.

    You know what I’m going to say. Starts with B, ends with R.

    The answer is no.

    Newcastle / Cessnock miners are proper old school labor unionists. Which is fine but the idea that this guy is an everyman and not an awake and activated political trooper is dumb.

    What happened to his thirty years of superannuation contributions?

  12. NoFixedAddress says:

    “Billy” Claydon… is that you?

    The granddaughter has done well!

    And look, your on the ABC.. (Australian Bullshitting Communists).

  13. Perfidious Albino says:

    As a counterpoint to Albo’s response when confronted ‘in the wild’, it might even work in ScoMo’s favour. That said, I’m not 100% ruling out it being a false flag to provide cover for changes to neg. gearing etc.

    Just another whining dickhead in a pub.

    I can’t believe nobody in this thread has invoked Hawke’s ‘silly old bugger’.

  15. cuckoo says:

    According to one report, the silly old bugger is a ‘disability pensioner’. He may be a perfectly legitimate one, for all I know, but my money’s on him being one of the other kind.

  16. NoFixedAddress says:

    The current federal member of Parliament for Newcastle is whom??

    Oh look… it’s “Billy” Claydon’s granddaughter!

    https://www.alp.org.au/our-people/our-people/sharon-claydon/

    talk about a set up that Scott from marketing should have kicked in the teeth.

    No wonder Australia is just chump change in the real world.
