Why Coalition is reluctant to release policies...
Apr 18th, 2012 at 4:16pm
 
This is a classic example of why the Coalition is reluctant to release policies, especially when they are well before an election - the ALP shamelessly steals them and claims them as their own!

Oh, and by the way, there has been ANOTHER boatload of illegal immigrants intercepted by our Navy due to the incompetence of the ALP government in Canberra.

Abbott has to embrace the NBN without losing face!

THIS IS WHY HE IS RELUCTANT TO SHOW WHERE HIS FRONT FOOT IS GOING TOO EARLY!!

So you've got the memory of a goldfish then?
Also it would seem casting the same mental deficiency on a large number of the populace.
It's a weak argument to say the least, but why am I not surprised you fall for this crap.

Tony should release his policies 6 months out from the election, that way he will have lived up to his promise of releasing them with plenty of time to study & understand their impacts.
Who knows if he did & they actually made sense & added up he might garner some of those "None of the above" votes.

But he won't, he'll get non thinking drones to sprout the theft argument(because we wouldn't remember Tony releasing the same policy as Labor are announcing 2 weeks later), then chuck them on the press 3 days before we vote.

Your non critical barracking for a party possibly about to govern our country just shows me how Germany went so wrong in the 30's.

Oh yeah, he should release his policy 6 months prior to an election so the ALP can re-brand them all as ALP policies. Idiot...

Labor are notorious for this and that is why I am happy to wait and liberals are right to have me waiting.

Remember the 2007 Election? Rudd & Swan refused to give any details of their policies...until the policies of Howard were released. Then they took up these policies and "tweaked" them to make them their own. This is happening again here.

A-P...you are soooo right. Swan is hopeless at coming up with anything that works...so he has (once again) pinched the Opposition's policy from the last election...except they made it $10,000 (well up on what the Libs proposed)...and for 3 months only. As far as I can see, this is open to huge rorts....especially with that dopey goose, Swan, in control...there would have been no checking on how it would all pan out.

Keep your policies close to your chest, Libs...this Labor rabble has no idea and will pinch everything you propose.

No surprise. It's in Labor's DNA, alongside corruption, deception and incompetence. The Coalition should not, and will not, release policies until very shortly before the next election. How can one blame then when this seems to always happen? As olive said, just look at the 2007 election.

So intercepting boatloads of asylum seekers is an example of incompetence?

Yes, and it's just another lie/broken promise. We were promised strong border control, HA!

Everything was fine when the Nauru solution was there, but no, Rudd and Gillard were stubborn to admit that a Coalition policy was actually good and effective.

Yes, actually, because there would not be any boats being intercepted if Gillard was competent in this area of policy. The ALP was given the perfect policy for dealing with illegal immigrants and... they destroyed it. For Chris Bowen to continue to blame Abbott clearly demonstrates that he has no interest in doing anything to fix this problem - a problem entirely of Labor's making. It is not up to Abbott to come to the table on this issue - Labor is in power and Labor must present the parliament with a competent, realistic policy - not a re-hash of the illegal Malaysia policy that was struck down by the High Court!

Is Abbott a two year old? He's claiming labor stole his policies? Surely if its a good policy then its a good policy and everyone should jump on board and help it pass parliament .. or is this going to be another good policy when he says it, then he'll vote against it because the sky will fall down if we do that?  Shouldn't we all contribute to the good ideass pool?

And for all the nice people on here jumping on his bandwagon, may I suggest you grow a brain .. they all use each others ideas .. they tinker around with them, change figures to make them unique, but the libs steal as many policies as the ALP does ... I'm more concerned with all the good ideas that don't get stolen because of poor polling results .. surely thats a bigger concern?

So you saying Abbott shouldn't stop the boats because its a sign of incompetance?

Of course Abbott is to blame ... if your in a room with a collegue and you watch him beat up some person, and you don't do whatever you can to help, your as guilty of assault as he is .... Abbott is in the room just standing back watching .. at least be honest with yourself if not everyone else
