Tony Abbott - the winner
Mar 31st, 2011 at 10:12am
 

here he is - despite all the vague lefty phrases against him, rolling out his winning policies.

Quote:
TONY Abbott has shifted gear, shifted focus and started to put out solid policy alternatives in areas the Gillard government has been avoiding.
In an explicit change of tempo and tone, the Opposition Leader has sought to incorporate his carbon tax attack into a broader economic story while putting up policy proposals with which he is familiar and comfortable.

Given Abbott's ideas - even the example of denying people on the dole their payments if they are in areas where ripe fruit falls for want of pickers - are refinements of his former "tough love" approaches, they represent not so much an emergence of a "'new Tony" as a re-emergence of the "old Tony".

It was in the early days of work for the dole that Abbott pushed his tough-love line and sided with those who argued against "sit down" money, which created welfare dependency.

As well, the Liberal leader is revisiting Howard government plans that have been defeated or disassembled.

Abbott is pushing into the sphere of tax and welfare reforms with the aim of putting people outside the workforce into employment.

The strategy is designed to show he is capable of putting up positive policy ideas and goes to the heart of Julia Gillard's self-declared central aim of getting two million Australians into work.

What's more,
it's the area of tax and welfare reform where the government is being criticised for wimping out
.

The leaders, as if they have recognised the damage they have done to each other in recent weeks with their bitter personal brawling, have come out with tax/welfare initiatives and emphasised the need for better economic management and productive government spending.

Indeed, Abbott has decided to confront Labor's attacks on his record as a minister and reinforce his links - and those of his frontbench colleagues - with the Howard-Costello era of economic management, while implicitly distancing the Prime Minister and her colleagues from the Hawke-Keating reforms.

Abbott is not only shifting to a more positive approach but also spruiking the experience of his front bench and not demurring from the Howard years.

Depending on how serious is the resurrection of the Old Tony to take on the Real and Fake Julias, we may even see Coalition policies on long-term climate solutions and workplace reforms.

Bring back workchoices...bring back work for the dole..bring back your mean spirit.. I need to ask, haven't you guys got anything NEW....?

How about - How is Tony Abbott’s Dam Plan going?

The inquiry will take 12 months, as Tony said. It will involve myself and a number of senior colleagues, Barnaby Joyce and we will have Greg Hunt involved, we’ll have Simon Birmingham involved, so a significant team. We will carry out consultations where necessary, visitation around the country, a lot of conferring with those that involved, the CSIRO for instance, others who are looking at new technology

Or perhaps the Australian just offered to pay him more to spew out more garbage to meet their investors' needs?

The coalition will be to late, most Australians on the DSP are initiating legal action to protect their medical records from the commonwealth Government.  The burden of proof of their agenda is on them... Smiley

btw, the review of the disability payments will upset my two neighbours.
The same two that I have watched for over 10 years place outside their homes the Liberal placards at voting time. Both have the same aliment, very bad backs.  Both have newly renovated homes that they helped each other do. Both stopped working , because of their bad backs, well before they were 55.

Luck them, they will be ready for the pension by now, so yeah they will still vote for Abbott.

I wouldn't be going anywhere near the high court if I was you Snickers.
They'd lock you up for good.
