Gored of the Jungle: Small Business Minister flounders on detail as Liberal MPs bare their teeth.
For the second day in a row, Small Business Minister Julie Collins has failed to answer two key questions about how many small businesses will be drawn into proposed wage bargaining and how much it would cost.
For a second day in a row, Collins looked like a wildebeest or antelope crossing a river where Labor knew she was outnumbered by crocodiles and her survival depended on swimming like Johnny Weissmuller…
That’s Dennis Shanahan. Staying with IR, Janet Albrechtsen calls out Labor’s legalised bribery.
There’s a message in there, somewhere.
shanahan and albrectsen. wow two of the best people who are usually wrong.
right up there on the intellectual stakes as well.
Strange how employers comp[-lain about a labour shortage yet complains about paying higher wages.
Instead of incessantly babbling leftard talking points, how about you provide some actual data to back up your unsupported assertions about coal and ruinable electricity generation.
Or don’t you actually have any such data?
Covid lockdowns didn’t kill off enough small business so Labor need to up the ante to satisfy their paymasters.
Labor couldn’t run a chook raffle.
The pattern emerging is that Albo is a bimbo who excels at reading briefing notes and being photographed at summits but having no idea what he’s doing when it comes to domestic governance. It needs to be pointed out again that no prime minister has ever had a more undistinguished ministerial résumé than this bloke. Complete goose.
And he falls back on the old race card when defending gifting hundreds of millions (billions?) of Aussie taxpayer dollars to third world countries (I wonder in whose pockets much of that money will wind up?) for an imaginary problem, while not delivering repeatedly promised energy price cuts before the last election.
Let’s check on the Small Business Minister’s experience in small business:
It’s not surprising Albanese is bungling.
I like the “Airbus Albo”
Unfortunately, the trend for matey, short forms of surnames gives an impression of nice fellas; politicians must welcome this from the media; it quickly spreads.
I was told over and over to prepare for a Shorten win. No. Morrison had the tag “Scomo”, and I expected him to win.
“When the Coalition allowed industry super funds to become the most vocal and influential source of ownership of listed companies, it yielded control of political donations by big business to those funds. It is no surprise these funds expect big companies to either donate nothing to conservative political parties or to donate equally to both sides of politics. The control the industry funds have over the board elections of listed companies ensures a tight discipline on that donation policy. The aim and result are clear: to strangle the funding base of the Coalition.”
Ahhhhh, the never ending own goals of the stupid effing Liberals and Nationals…..
1. Failure to deal with the activism by industry superannuation funds.
2. Failure to rein in “their ABC”.
3. Failure to fight the climate cult.
4. Failure to implement a Religious Freedom Bill.
5. Failure to fight for anything.
and so many more.
But let me tell you what the Coalition was good at…
1. Dumping on people, just ask George Pell, Christian Porter, Andrew Laming, Alan Tudge, Craig Kelly, George Christensen and a certain man accused of rape. Andrew Laming, who received no support from Scumbag Morrison, has had significant legal wins because so many defamed him, but the cost? His political career terminated.
2. Destroying the Liberal brand, probably for good.
I don’t know about others, but when I now see Barbabus Beetroot Juice and Davey “nothing to be proud of” Littleproud on television, wailing about the Labor government’s climate policies, I want to reach for a bucket and vomit.
Notice how Labor doesn’t waste any time when in government instituting its policies and agendas, even stuff they conveniently didn’t mention during the campaign? Contrast this to the always timid Coalition when in government. The Liberals and Nationals tippy-toe around, too scared to rock any boats. It took them almost three years to introduce the Religious Freedom bill, only to see it defeated thanks to those now defeated and very unlamented wets….Karma Sharma, Trent Zimmerboy, Katie (I love Obama) Allan, Fiona Martin and Bridget Archer (sadly, she’s still there).
Remind me why I should ever vote Liberal again?
Thank you, Cassie, for that exceptionally accurate description of these hopeless duds.
Thank you to Mark on another thread for a good example of what you’re talking about:
About the Constitution.
Working in the professional corporate world the liberal party and the people it places in parliament are the perfect representation of the party ‘base’. The australian white collar liberal voting gen-x / y/ z middle man is a gutless, chinless, pussy whipped wimp. The australian white collar middle woman is a compromised corporate drone who only sees her toddlers on weekends.
And that’s the “right wing” types that go to chuch.
Won’t even stand up for their own children. Start there.
One of the first ice-breaking questions at a Mandatory Fun corporate events that people ask to people having babies now, is when are they (aka mum) going back to work. I.e “when are you putting your little baby into long term daycare so you can go back to reading news.com.au in one screen and typing into google docs in the other”.
“Oh we’re going for a whole year I think, we really want baby have the maximum time at home with mum” is an example of an extremist reply.
Literally worse than the Third Reich’s Ehrenkreuz der Deutschen Mutter!
Which was actually a more admirable decoration than anything doled out on Australia Day, just quietly.
Now you’ll go from ‘promoting’ PTP to LH (literally hitler).
Hey @real Trampis, @yank… come in spinners!
That’s smart thinking.
By the time The Voice push starts sucking oxygen, Dutton will have prosecuted the case for the Royal Commission, then voters can wonder why Labor is fixated on The Voice, but totally uninterested about the Royal Commission.
