The Wong/Albo government have hit the ground running. Last week Wong gave away one of our navy patrol boats to Samoa, soon to be in Chinas control, yesterday she was in Indonesia holding Albos hand as he gave Joko $400,000,000 for a positive photo shoot with lots of smiles, hand shakes and a short bike ride. Joko doesn't give a rats arse about Australia but the money was accepted unconditionally.

The indigenous people are Melanesians of West Papua....

Irian Jaya is just an Indo name for the lands they invaded & those Indos there are Javanese.

Anthony Albanese has over-estimated himself his whole political life


Two years ago I stood before a cheering crowd at the Canterbury-Hurlstone Park RSL Club in Sydney, where I claimed victory for Labor. “I’ve been underestimated my whole life,” I triumphantly proclaimed.

That was true. But reflecting on my government’s many failings during the last two years, particularly the rising cost of living and the inability to protect this country from both external and internal threats, I’ve reluctantly reached a conclusion. And that is I’ve over-estimated myself for my whole political life.

I promised on election night that I would seek “common purpose and promote unity” and “not fear and division”. For good measure I also added: “It is what I have sought to do throughout my political life”. But the truth is I have long revelled in conflict, division, and petty sniping. That is my nature.

I have presented many faces to the public, a practice otherwise known as telling the audience what they want to hear. Two months before the 2022 election, I gave an interview to The Daily Telegraph, claiming Labor was “the party of mainstream Australia”. I made a big show of distancing myself from the Greens, saying I was pro-business and would implement economically “realistic” policies.

That was a façade. I knew it was a façade. You knew it was a façade. Only ten years before I had, as a cabinet minister in the Gillard government, tearfully lamented that the upheaval in Labor’s leadership was distracting me from my core business of class warfare.

“I like fighting Tories,” I said. “It’s what I do.”

That was one of the rare occasions the public got to see an upfront Anthony Albanese. I was a teenager when I embraced far-left politics, and I’ve never relinquished the ideology of envy and antagonism. I define myself not by what I’m for but what I’m against.

As for my love of fighting, that needs qualifying. I’m big on shrill denunciations while pointing the finger at the other side. I’ll posture for the camera and yell exhortations like “smash her”, when a member of the Opposition speaks. It’s all theatre, though. In short, I’m a piss and wind warrior.


“I won’t run and hide from responsibility,” I said in a pre-election speech. “I won’t go missing when the going gets tough.” It’s just my ticker that will go missing, I should have added. They were just a couple of the many promises and assurances I have given over the last few years, all of which were about as believable as a bedtime fairy tale.

I told the Australian public on the eve of the election: “Labor will be every bit as strong in defending Australian values against any push by China or any nation trying to undermine them”. So what did I do when a Chinese warship deliberately used its sonar to injure our naval divers? I kept that under wraps until I finished my pre-departure press conference at San Francisco, so the media couldn’t ask me if I’d raised this incident with President Xi Jinping during our APEC summit meeting.

I’m forever telling everyone that my government is “keeping Australians safe,” yet I refuse to call out the growing number of Islamic extremists in this country. I’m paralysed by the thought of losing safe Labor seats in Western Sydney. Every aspect of our foreign policy concerning the Middle East is assessed according to that narrow consideration.

My government even refused a modest request by the US to send a warship into the Red Sea as part of a global effort to protect shipping lanes from Houthi rebel attacks. Do you know who praised us for that decision? China’s state-owned media, that’s who. “It is sensible for Australia to continue distancing itself from the US”, said the Global Times. That says it all.

I know that Jews throughout the Western world, including those in Australia, increasingly fear for their safety. One reason for that here is my government offers only token support for them, because we are more worried about offending Muslim voters.

Take for example my reaction to the disgraceful protests outside the Sydney Opera House just days after the horrific atrocities of October 7. Asked at a press conference about that ugly demonstration, I resorted to false equivalence. “I’m concerned about the rise of anti-Semitism,” I said. “I’m concerned as well about Islamophobia, which has impacted in this country as well,” I added. To put that in context, many of Western Sydney’s Middle Eastern residents had only hours before taken to the streets to celebrate the biggest mass murder of Jewish civilians since the Holocaust, and there I was waving the anti-Islamophobia finger.
..
As for my commitment to protecting Australia’s borders, that’s also a farce. As of April, three boatloads of illegal maritime arrivals had reached the mainland. Fear not, I said, our commitment to maintaining Operation Sovereign Borders has not changed. Just like I insisted repeatedly that we would honour our promise to implement the Morrison government’s Stage 3 tax cuts. “My word is my bond,” I would say. “Our position has not changed.” And I continued these reassurances and denials right up until the moment I announced we had reneged on our commitment. So much for my election campaign launch declaration when I said: “I can promise you I’ll always tell it straight.”

I wasn’t being straight with you when I said that day that the average household power bill would fall by $275 under a Labor government. I wasn’t being straight with you when I said there would be no changes to taxes on superannuation. I wasn’t being straight with you when I told you I would commission a full inquiry into the nation’s response to the pandemic. And I wasn’t being straight with you when I insisted that the proposed Indigenous voice to parliament – which would have meant entrenching a racially based activist group in our constitution – would function merely as an “advisory body”.

As I mentioned, I said I wanted to emulate Hawke and Keating. Like them or loathe them, you knew who was running the country when they held the top job. Now commentators mention those two in conjunction with my name only to demonstrate the jarring contrast between their cabinets and mine. I’m Prime Minister in name only. ‘I’m way out of my depth’ doesn’t begin to describe it. I’m a political midget trying to straddle the Mariana Trench.

If I remain in this position, I have three prospects. First, I could be the first Prime Minister in nearly 100 years to lead a first-term government to defeat. Second, I could be rolled by my own party before the next election. Third, I could end up with a hung parliament next year. I’d have to share a podium with Greens leader Adam Bandt, and everyone would know who was wearing the trousers.

I cannot face any of those possibilities. Accordingly, I have formally advised the Governor-General that I will step down as Prime Minister today.

On a brighter note, this just happens to be the date I qualify for an indexed prime ministerial pension of around $400K a year. Not a bad little earner to supplement an already lucrative property portfolio. You didn’t expect me to fight the Tories for free, surely?

Albo?
He strikes me as a wannabe Bob Hawk but lacking the intellect or charisma.

His the second choice after Shorten and together are two of the “ faceless men” that destroyed labor last they were in government.

Very few people actually voted for Albo, many like myself put him first only to ensure Scomo came last.

As his popularity is plummeting his sidelining Wong, who I believe is much smarter and a far better choice of leader for our country.

I don’t want Dutton but I admit his doing a fantastic job as opposition leader.
I’m just nervous he hastily cleaned up the corruption that was the legacy of Scomo government?

Not everyone in Australia is a homophobic, racist misogynist like you old boy.

A homosexual, Asian woman as our PM would be delightful, if not for any other reason than triggering people such as yourself.

.... is a man with a plan ..... he plans to bring current Labor down and re-install its software so as to make it once more a party of and for the people.... you saw how he sabotaged 'the voice' nonsense and how he is fumbling with his flies over Israel being violated ... then there's immigration massive ..... internal 'treaties' with allegedly equal citizens (Land Enclosures Act 2024) ... refusal to get onboard with the proper review of the gender ideology madness .....

What else could he be expecting apart from the utter rejection, by the voting public, of current Labor and its lost way?

“ Albanese had the chance to come and listen to the speakers.

Instead, he came and spoke and having said his piece turned his back and drove off. “

“ Abcnews

This explains why his Anzac Day speech was held overseas in as remote area as possible and only reported on by a select group of five invited ( and paid for by taxpayers) journalists.

His advisers don’t trust him in public unless they have full control.

He really believes his bigger than Jesus now!

This explains why his Anzac Day speech was held overseas in as remote area as possible and only reported on by a select group of five invited ( and paid for by taxpayers) journalists.

His advisers don’t trust him in public unless they have full control.

Here's a beauty:-

https://www.msn.com/en-au/money/news/allowing-australians-to-access-super-to-pay...

"Letting Australians access superannuation to buy their first home would blow a hole of up to $2.5bn a year in the budget by the end of the decade, according to Deloitte modelling for the super industry.

The modelling for the Super Members Council, released on Thursday, shows a mounting annual and cumulative cost to the budget primarily from more people relying on the aged pension due to lower super balances at retirement."


So the entire edifice comes unraveled one bit at a time.... but sooooo slowly it's a slow motion train wreck...  so now either desperation drives Australians Young to drag on their tiny super fund to even own a HOME, and so, ultimately, that means less in retirement and thus more dependence on social security in retirement.... or they never have a chance of owning a HOME.

And who weeps for the dead?  In government they weep for their 'budget' - a possible forward estimate of what might remotely happen, without checks and balances and even a proper public reckoning after the 'X year plan' has expired  - instead of weeping for those increasingly forced to live in Shadowlands (in more than one way) as a result of their 'budget' and other madness - when Albocorp finish Handover to the Abestinians of Ausrael, we'll ALL be living in Shadowland - every simple right scrutinised and subject to over-ride by the four per centers - a politician's dream - and like Hitler being appointed boss - Albocorp are assuming they can CONTROL the Abestinians once they are handed power over the land, water and resources.... good luck, idiots...

Truly we live in dangerous times for OUR west - with OUR style of 'government' .... and for poor fellow - my country (I started using that years ago now - and it is also becoming mainstream, even in the media - Peta Credlin used it one night - one of the rare occasions I look in on Channel 37) ...

Poor Fellow - My Country!  I've been wondering why that song 'Woodstock' has been going through my mind lately.... "we are star dust - we are fallen" ...... and today we must choose faces (stolen from Roger Zelazny - Today We Choose Faces) ........ are we star dust......... or are we simply fallen..............?????

Which will you choose?  To stand for Right - even if the heavens fall ..... or to go under quietly into the darkness of Shadowlands?

I have GOT to find my feet again.... I've got books to write.  Shut meself off from saving you bastards from yourselves for a year or so... might help...

The referendum was a disaster.

Now it’s all about domestic violence.

Albo, honestly, cut government taxes and levies and fees.

That’s what is driving cost of living!

I suggest for debate domestic violence would decline if relationships weren’t in such dire finical circumstances?

But look over here- 600 million for PNG nrl team?

Bring on the next election!

**pulls up rock at fireside for evening chat**

"Today I just want to look at some of that history I always talk about and the parallels with the modern day - the more things change, the more they stay the same - or grow darker...  I'll quote from Airey Neave in "Nuremburg", p.10-11.......

"It (the evidence) demonstrated what kind of people perpetrated these colossal racist abominations.

They were not supermen.  They were 'ordinary people', doctors, lawyers, architects, professional soldiers, politicians and businessmen, invested by Hitler with unbridled power.  They were artists and intellectuals, who prostituted their gifts in pursuit of the Nazi Revolution of Destruction.

Most of these men and women began life in ordinary circumstances.  As their power increased, they learned to wield it without restraint.  Manipulation, perversion and corruption of the law, allied to absolute rule unchecked by legal and democratic sanction, turned many of them into beasts.........

.........Many of the Nazi officials were weak, easily lead and toadies to Hitler.  They were the products of disillusionment in a country ruined by the inflation and acute unemployment of the '20's.  When Hitler was appointed Chancellor of Germany in January 1933 and began his efforts to establish a totalitarian regime, they became petty tyrants under his leadership.  Local party bosses, SS concentration camp guards, Gestapo and SD officials enjoyed total authority.

We should remember that the Nazi Party achieved this power through the ballot box.
 

In the Reichstag elections of 1933, the system of proportional representation gave them only 43.9 per cent of the total vote.  Uncomprehending of the true nature of Nazism, political parties, save the Social Democrats who fought bravely, agreed to their own dissolution.  By the end of July 1933 democracy was dead.  The terror increased as Hitler had often threatened.  By October 1933 there were no political parties save Hitler's and 26,000 of his opponents were under the 'protection' of the Gestapo."



"43.9% you say?   Hmmm - how then about the enforced implementation of a doctrine and ideology against the will of the people when that doctrine etc had ONLY received 39% of the vote and the remainder of parties etc did not resign.... and yet it goes ahead on a daily basis.... and it is what it says up in Neave's statement....

"Colossal racist abominations."

The people didn't VOTE for this at all - they voted it down..... and you imagine our modern, current government is not worse than the Nazis in their sheer determination to destroy our democracy and reduce the people under despotism for their own ends... and even a cursory glance at this insane 'voice' agenda being pushed by stealth every single day of the week - shows even to the casual observer that a disaster of national proportions is being visited upon us all.  My QUESTION was and remains - WHY is this being done?  Nobody is that stupid, so it is clearly an intended thing seeking an intended outcome.... not one iota of which the people have voted FOR, but against - and not one iota of which will do anything FOR the majority in this country or even for those in the minority being pushed to the top without merit.  Nothing new there, of course - all 'social science based' initiatives are the same - sweep through with a broad brush leaving the entire field blank and dark apart from the few chosen spots required by the fantasy.

I grow old - and the world grows darker around me.....

I think that's enough for you all to think on - and dream on if you dare....."

I'm predicting there will be an attempt by the Federal ALP to have Albanese replaced as leader and PM before next year's Federal Election.

Just by reading all of the comments on social media, etc. and talking to people when I'm out shopping I honestly believe he would have to be the most despised PM (and individual) this country has ever seen... and he's had some pretty tough 'competition' over the years.

If he isn't replaced before the election I'm certain the ALP will be facing one of the biggest election wipeouts in history. Mind you, I'm 100% sure they are going to lose anyway (and they deserve to) but they will probably lose by a lot less with Albanese gone.

It’s no longer premature to say it: Anthony Albanese is simply out of his depth as our Prime Minister.

In terms of judgment, character, leadership and the intellectual heft required to grapple with the complex challenges of these times, Australians are waking up to the sad reality that this emperor has no clothes.

At one time his support for the voice might have been put down to an excess of goodwill; his support for re-regulating the workplace the result of union paymasters calling in their debts; his energy follies, in part, the result of his faction’s long war with the Greens; his inertia on national security exposed by his own admission as opposition leader that he would never have the fortitude to turn back boats, hence his preference for open borders and Big Australia.

But taken cumulatively with his refusal this week to state a position on the International Criminal Court’s moral equivalence between the actions of liberal democratic Israel in self-defence and the atrocities of the designated terrorist group Hamas, it shows a damning deficiency of judgment and character.
...

Albanese only scraped into office in the first place, almost without declared policies and with a record low Labor primary vote, on the back of the electorate’s disdain for Scott Morrison. The record number of independents now in the parliament testifies to voters’ disenchantment with politics as usual from both sides. Still, the tendency to give first-term incumbents the benefit of the doubt makes a teal-Greens-backed minority government the most likely option from an election that could well happen this year. Almost certainly that would only reinforce the tribal leftism of this beyond mediocre Prime Minister.

Pete Credlin calls it.

Albo was always a bad pick.

I said all along that they should have gone with Jason Clare.

albo is a bit of a beta male
a bit directionless
comes from a frame of "do you like me, please like me"
hes a bit "weak sauce"
he panders to the electorate
lacks penetrating masculine energy
tends to be at the effect, not the cause
tends to react, not to act
lacks a bit of confidence and conviction


in all, he's like 90 % of the population

just adrift and with no real vision and trying to follow the path of least resistance

i feel sorry for the little bloke

most people who hate on him (and theres really not much to hate) are really hating on themselves and the failure he manifests being triggering to the failure in their own lives

Oh, goodie -now all we have to do is put a stop to the State insanity of seeking treaties... even Queensland The Brave - The Smrat State - has figured on a 'need' for 154 'treaties'... what utter nonsense - we're all either in or out of Australia.... and as for Victoria - who really GAF what they do to self-destruct?  Gaga Strip?  What can you expect from a mad-house of Ham-Assed Clowns running the show?

At least the NT Coroner has shown some balls and stated clearly that 76 out of 81 women killed since 2000 are Aboriginal...... not including the remotes where women and girls just vanish .... don't laugh - it's true... I get sick of you rednecks calling me names when I'm the only one even mentioning such things.. mothra and co never do - they really don't GAF about Aborigines... it's just cover for slagging others...

Now if Albo would just come down on the States and tell them they have no right to persist with something the people voted down and that as states they have no right to treat with anyone anyway, and it's time to stop their petty play for power over the people.

I'm leaning more and more towards Mansell's Two State solution - but the difference between us is that he wants his 'state for Aborigines' to be part of mainstream while not being mainstream - to swim in the sea of funds and Macca's etc and have all rights to stop anything etc at whim while being part of the community with special rights while being somehow 'separate' - I prefer a genuine territorial solution of Two States ....

Talk about woolly-headed thinking from your Aboriginal 'separatists' - they want no such thing - like the 'feminists' and all the other fringe rat-bags they simply want the top spot as if by some 'right'..... don't make me laugh....

Read in the news today Albo and his staff have been unable to enter their office for over a year due to pro Palestinian protestors stopping them?

I'll make this quick.

What a weak arse blonde hair dyed gutless man we have running the country.

I have no respect for him anymore.

How can he pretends to leader of the country and he can't even get into his own office?

He should be worried based on the polling.

Same with QLD Labor.

Not because they've done anything wrong, in fact both have enacted some long overdue policy and legislative changes, it's just that it's benefitted us the people at the expense of Corporations and the Mining companies.

Labor faces challenges with public perception, partly due to negative media coverage from corporate-owned outlets. This opposition stems from Labor's efforts to ensure corporations pay their fair share of taxes, which goes against the interests of powerful media owners.

What gets little airtime is the positive changes they've made that actually benefit us, including:

Tax Cuts for Middle and Working Class:
Labor implemented substantial tax cuts for the middle and working classes, which were originally proposed by the Liberal Party. Unlike the Liberal approach, Labor ensured that these tax cuts benefitted the general population rather than being skewed towards the wealthy.

Recovery of Stolen Wages:
Labor rectified the issue of $130 billion in wages stolen from workers due to loopholes in workers' protection laws. These loopholes, drilled by the Liberals, allowed big businesses to withhold wages. Labor's actions have returned this significant sum to the workers.

Pro-Worker Budget:
The recent Labor budget is described as the most pro-worker in decades. Key measures include:
- $300 Energy Rebates: Assistance for energy costs to alleviate financial pressure.
- 10% Increase in Rental Assistance: Additional support for renters.
- Lower Student Loans: Reduced financial burden on students.
- $20 Billion for Manufacturing and Green Economy: Investment to revive Australia's manufacturing sector with a focus on the green economy.

Historic Corporate Tax Evasion Laws:
Labor introduced robust laws to combat corporate tax evasion, positioning Australia as a global leader in this area. These laws include:
- Enhanced transparency requirements for subsidiaries.
- Limits on deductions multinationals can claim on interest.
- Significant increases in penalties for tax evasion.

Increased Corporate Tax Collection:
Under Labor, corporate tax collection has significantly increased, with taxes collected from the corporate sector rising from 20.7% under the Liberals to 27.9%.

Economic Measures for Youth:
Despite criticism from some young people, Labor has implemented measures aimed at improving their economic situation, including lower university fees, cheaper rent, and more employment opportunities in a sustainable economy.

Fair Tax Enforcement:
Labor has empowered the Australian Taxation Office (ATO) to pursue large-scale tax evaders more effectively. This has resulted in the recovery of $1 billion so far and the introduction of measures to prevent companies from using complex structures to avoid taxes.

They've actually been doing a great job, you just wouldn't know it because they've been governing in our best interests, not of those who control the narrative.

And in all of the above areas, the Liberals have voted to block every single one of them, yet people want to vote them back in.

Good choice /s

Read in the news today Albo and his staff have been unable to enter their office for over a year due to pro Palestinian protestors stopping them?

I'll make this quick.

What a weak arse blonde hair dyed gutless man we have running the country.

I have no respect for him anymore.

How can he pretends to leader of the country and he can't even get into his own office?

Gutless wimp

There's that.

We get Labor governments when we forget how good we have it under the conservatives (who are only a smidge to the right of the left of centre left Labor bozos).


ScoMo was the man of the machine. Albo is also a machine man, now as farce.
If ScoMo was from marketing, Albo is from 'fighting Tories' student unions.

Dutton is noticing that being a Turnbull - indistinguishable from Labor - is not an option and ScoMo was mistaken to be Labor light. 

The let down with every non-lefty government in the West is that they facilitate and do not actually do anything different.

John Setka is an Australian trade unionist. He is secretary of the Victorian-Tasmanian division of the Construction, Forestry, Maritime, and Energy Union, which also administers the South Australian division under a temporary arrangement. He is a controversial figure in the Australian trade union movement.

Li Qiang is a Chinese politician. He became the 8th premier of the People's Republic of China in March 2023, having been elevated to the second-ranking member on the Chinese Communist Party Central Committee Politburo Standing Committee in October 2022

Anthony Norman Albanese is an Australian politician serving as the 31st and current prime minister of Australia since 2022. He has been leader of the Australian Labor Party since 2019 and the member of parliament for the division of Grayndler since 1996.

Dutton edges ahead as preferred PM as voters thump Labor over economy


...

Forty per cent of voters now rank Peter Dutton, left, and the Coalition as best to manage the economy, with only 24 per cent naming Anthony Albanese and Labor.

Peter Dutton has gained a narrow lead over Anthony Albanese as preferred prime minister after a significant shift in his favour during disputes on climate, immigration and the economy.

That's what happens when Labor governs in our best interest, closing corporate tax loopholes and ensuring a return from our resources taken from the ground.

The lobby groups are doing their best to destroy Labor because they want the Libs back in to undo the changes, them over us.

They're painting Labor as being a terrible government and for the masses who don't spend the time to check their actual record, it's easy to just accept it, which the polls reflect.

All of those points are hugely popular AND positive, not just popularity nonsense to win votes, but the media narrative today is the successful interception of a boat with Chinese nationals on it heading to Australia.  Of course, it would not be reported under a Liberal government or if it got out it would show they're being strong on the borders etc, but because it's Labor, it's being painted as a sign of them being weak on border control, even through it's the exact same thing.

Those controlling the narrative had an interest in returning the Libs to power because the Libs govern for them, not us.  At least while they keep the donations and the jobs for the boys coming, which they do.

It's a scary thought because the bulk of the issues we face today are because of the Coalition's style of economic management.

But sure, hand it back over to them, they'll fix it...

That's a good point. The majority of our issues are from the previous government.
Very rarely are they not.

Indeed that's why we booted scomo and LNP.

We wanted change, we instead got Abo and his referendum followed by not much else other than a taxpayer funded NRL team in PNG.

I can see a Green - Labor government a better answer than Dutton LNP.

But I'd want a Green PM. The Labor and libs need to understand they are no longer relevant to the Australian people.

That's not true, they've actually done a lot that will bring in structural changes that will go towards resolving many of the issues that need fixing, it's just the narrative is ignoring those and only focusing on the areas they should have done more in.

The same areas where the Coalition have been voting against the changes they are trying to implement and claiming they want to do the opposite.

So Labor are being attacked because they're not doing enough, and rightly so, but the Libs are arguing to do less, or the opposite which would make the issue worse, so let's vote them back in?

It's a silly way of thinking, but a purposeful one being pushed.

It's the only reason people continue to support the Coalition. 

Labor are expected to fix everything in half a term when in office, and the Coalition doesn't have to do anything because they claim they are fixing X but in an economically minded way.

Which in reality is spending money enriching donors but not fixing X.

Fixing it quickly would cost too much, so they can do nothing for 10 years.

But Labor are expected to fix everything in half a term without spending anything otherwise they're accused of being drunken sailors etc.

And if they deliver a budget surplus, now they're bad too.

It's why we can't have nice things.

If I was to pretend to see into the future I would first be very surprised if any of " Albo structure change" amount to anything and , secondly less surprised when "if" they occur they are watered down so much that they are completely irrelevant.

He unfortunately suffered delusion many when given great power suffered.

He believed the majority of Australians would follow him on the voice referendum.

That didn't.

He believed the majority of Australians would welcome record immigration.

That absolutely did not.

I'm not accusing him of being lazy. At other points in this country history such events could have been successful and deeply defining for our future..

I'm accusing him of being out of touch. When people are struggling to find a roof under which to live let alone afford electrical ( thanks to state Labor for privatization of that) plus food and cost of living.

Albos big ticket items just aren't what the country needed or voted him in to achieve.

He simply doesn't understand.

His virtual daily updates on the NRL ( note his team the rabbit are going very poorly) shows this.

The NRL isn't the most popular sport in Australia, not even close but following Scomoo , Alboo continues to think it will a dear him to the Australian public.

His completely out of touch with Australia.

He may have grand intentions but his failure in one term of government cannot be allowed be repeated.

Duddo if elected should take heed. If you cannot fix the real pressing issues facing Australia in three years don't move to many books into your new office. You to will be voted out in one term.

Hard to argue against that.

It's funny how a number of what could be seen as "small issues" sometimes build up over the election cycle that add up to the government being flung out.

A few examples off the top of my head:

The year wasted on the shockingly misread "Voice" folly.
The awful incompetence of "Blackout" Bowen.
The dreadfully awful minister Linda Burney.
The woefully inadequate $300 power bill rebate desperation act.
Bill Shorten's $600,000 speech writer.
The shockingly incompetent minister Andrew Giles.
The shockingly incompetent minister Clare O'Neil.
The waffling dunderhead treasurer Jim Chalmers.
The dreadfully bad minister Bill Shorten.

At the very least, I reckon Labor will lose majority government and I think there is a strong possibility that Labor will be thrown out of office completely.


Much like Malcolm Turnbull, Albo is an arrogant self-serving fizzer.

Clare O'Neil isn't available to answer questions at the moment -

Pathic example of democracy


"The federal government is promising greater public transparency over its handling of almost 150 people recently released from detention, as it fears further legal challenges will dramatically reshape parts of the nation's immigration system."


Clare obviously didn't get that memo?
