The Big Budget Bribe.2018

download

 

The 2018 Federal Budget will be announced tomorrow ( or what little parts already haven’t been) but a desperate Government hoping to bribe the voters into re-electing them.

By all reports they are going to spend big on infrastructure as well as any other items the think will be looked upon favourably as well as giving tax cuts and other sweeteners immediately to the lower classes while the more affluent will have to wait a few years.

Morrison and Mal are indeed trying to be Santa Claus. The hypocrisy is astounding by them as well as the complicate media,

What happened to the DEBT AND DEFICIENT disaster   we were warned about day in and day out when it was much lower than what it is now? What about the Sovereign Risk to Australia,? WE were all going to be ruined unless it was bought back under control.

This is the biggest bribe in place since Costello’s last one, which was the last trick to save their tired old Government from losing. This coming budget is about saving Turnbull/Morrison and the rest of Coalscums jobs.It will be talked up as brilliant by their sprukers and lickspittles , Labor will pillared from post to paddock if they don’t immediately agree to pass all the measures in the budget and then get out of the way and let the rightful rulers get on with their agenda with out question.

  1. The Queensland Labor government really needs to stop pandering to mining companies.

    Queensland minister accused of inflating mining job numbers
    Exclusive: Anthony Lynham used the same job figures as a mining industry lobby group’s report
    https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2018/jun/23/queensland-minister-accused-of-inflating-mining-job-numbers

    Enough Queensland voters believed a Labor government would veto Adani’s plans to ensure a Labor win. They also hoped that government would take a stand on mining overall. This is a great way to ensure the Palaszczuk government does not get another term.

    The time is ripe for a more activist approach to industrial relations

    It is becoming harder to deny that without changes to our industrial relations system, low wage growth will remain locked in. After the fight over tax, this should be the main focus of the next election campaign given even the head of the Reserve Bank, Philip Lowe, concedes the evidence is “pretty compelling” that changes in industrial relations designed to bring greater flexibility and less centralisation have contributed to our current state of record low wages growth

    • Very pretty, but I wish they had kept the proper Irish spelling. I understand why they didn’t, but still, it’s a shame.

  3. I wonder how they meant the name as ‘Aroha’ is love and a lower case ‘te’ could mean ‘the love” or ‘place of love’ .With a capital though it is used before someone’s name as a sign of respect to the person being addressed. I suppose all 3 🙂

    Until now the only Te Aroha I knew.
    Mt Te Aroha

    and its town

  4. NSW the police state.

    Gladys bans protest rallies, protests and any other kind of public gatherings on Crown land, the only exception being cemeteries, for funerals.

    “Crown land” means –

    …town squares and local parks, state heritage sites, buildings, community halls, nature reserves, coastal lands, waterway corridors, sporting grounds, racetracks, showgrounds, caravan parks, camping areas, travelling stock routes, rest areas, walking tracks, commons, community and government infrastructure and facilities. Hyde Park and Bondi Beach in Sydney are two famous examples of the NSW Crown reserve system at work

  5. Geologists captured this time-lapse video of the perched lava channel issuing from fissure 8 on Kīlauea’s lower East Rift Zone. Rafts of accreted lava move down stream and look like boats moving down a river. These are termed lava balls or lava boats and form when portions of the fissure 8 cone or levees break away and are rafted down stream. As they move along in the channel, additional lava can cool to their surface to form accretionary lava balls.

  6. Centre Alliance candidate Rebekha Sharkie will romp to victory in the Mayo by-election while Labor’s Susan Lamb has a 50 per cent chance of retaining Longman, a new poll shows.

    The ReachTel/Australian Institute survey found Ms Sharkie ahead 62 per cent to Liberal candidate Georgina Downer’s 38 per cent on a two-party preferred basis in the South Australia seat.

    Ms Lamb was neck and neck with LNP candidate Trevor Ruthenberg in her Queensland seat.

    The bill proposed extending the cashless welfare card trial to Bundaberg and Hervey Bay. The bill has been sent to the Senate. Labor will vote against it, or at least, that’s what they said a few weeks ago.

  8. This tweet sums up how I feel in 2018 so well.

    • Me too. Anger and frustration, and not helped by the MSM, especially Sky News, constantly tweeting crap about Labor’s alleged leadership war while deliberately not mentioning the problems in the Liberal Party. Very real problems.

    Alan Moir analyses Trump.

  10. Just listened to Jim Charlmers on rn with hamish. He did real good. Apparently no one should mention trumbles wealth. Also went against my own promise and read crowe’s piece of dribble, but can see why the msm were screaming about Albo going to challenge. It says it all that in the graphy things, that Labors team is beating their team by a mile.

    • Chanel & had something about those ads last night, I saw it on Twitter, because I don’t watch Channel 7, especially not their news. Of course, they ended it with leadershit about Albo and some rubbish about “Shorten now says” he approved of what Albo said. An attempt to make it look like Shorten is trying to hide a leadership crisis, probably.

      I would have posted it, but the dig at Shorten made me decide against it.

      These idiot journalists and writers of news items are carefully ignoring Labor’s leadership rules – if they ever knew about them at all.

      We can play at this game too. The Libs, though could have a leadership spill this afternoon, if Dutton wanted to go for the top job. Rumour says he’s preparing to challenge, probably after Lady Georgina gets whacked in Mayo. It must be true, it’s all over Twitter.

  11. abc am just spent 18 minutes sooking about some ad Labor has put out “attacking” trumble and his wealth……………how dare Labor do that, only lnp and msm are allowed to attack Bill and Labor, no one, but no one is allow to attack lnp or trumble, especially poor trumble.

  12. Hanson – she has changed hger position on business tax cuts so often that we now need an hourly update. I think we need an hourly update. So far today she says definitely not. That could change by lunchtime. The woman has an attention span that would make a goldfish seem intellectual.

    Hanson already has everything she wanted from this government – funding cuts to the ABC and SBS, the Liberal Party making it policy to sell the ABC, welfare cuts, climate change rubbished, work in progress to give white South African farmers given the status of humanitarian refugees and priority over refugees of colour, a tax cut for herself, a pay rise for herself, penalty rates cut, with more cuts coming on Sunday and acceptance of all One Nation’s nasty, hate-filled policies.

    What more could the government offer her? Only making her a minister. She’s love that, she’d love the extra money even more than the status.

  13. Here’s a thought – Albo makes one speech, pretty much echoing what Shorten has been saying in every one of the 75 town hall meetings he has held in the past year, and it makes headlines for days. Shorten does 75 town hall meetings and the MSM barely mention anything he says at them. Ditto for the speeches he has made at Labor conferences, at public events and in parliament. Nothing. Not one word. They deliberately try to stifle Shorten.

    Albo, on the other hand, could do tomorrow afternoon’s Matter of Public Importance, something always totally ignored by the Press Gallery pack, and it would make headlines as further proof he is about to challenge Shorten.

    Did any of these idiots bother reading Albo’s speech? It was all about Labor policy for the election, exactly what Shorten has been saying.

    • In other words, Albo does Shorten’s job by talking in detail about Labor’s policies, repeating what Shorten was saying but wasn’t heard. I still think that Albo shouldn’t replace, unwittingly or not, Shorten in the media even if they ignore him. imo for what it’s worth.

  14. Jess Irvine and her silly “village” chatter about early childhood education misses the point entirely.

    She says –

    The government’s reforms to childcare subsidies which kick off next week are designed to curb the rapidly rising cost of childcare to both parents and taxpayers, by moving to subsidise only a standard hourly fee based on “reasonable cost”. This is to discourage centres from escalating fees much beyond this level.

    The package will deliver more money for lower income families to secure access to early learning. Some higher income parents will lose out as stricter means testing kicks in

    So here’s what she missed in all that praise of a very flawed new system. She leaves out one crucial thing – low income families do not necessarily get more money, many will lose what they have been receiving. Low-income parents now have to prove they “deserve” this money. The level of subsidy will be determined in part by the “activity level” of parents, or how much they work, study, or job hunt. They have to prove they are working, or studying, or volunteering. Just being a stay-at-home mum, as many single parents on welfare are, (I’m not saying I approve of that) means you lose the subsidy you now have and next week will find you have less childcare available to you, or none at all.

    The whole scheme is designed to force low-income women into the work force. It’s going to be all but impossible to achieve that agenda when there is so little work available, especially work that accommodates the needs of women with young children.

    How is that fair? It’s not fair. The kids who most need early childhood education, the most deprived, the most needy, will miss out.

    Eva Cox did a much better article on the community-based aspect of childcare and the damage this new plan will cause last Saturday –

    “Proud to have protected workers from corporate collapse like the kind that the prime minister was dragged to a royal commission on. Proud to have fought for the rights of asbestos victims, while government ministers fought for the perpetrators. I’ll always stand up for the workers, while my opponent will always stand up for the top end of town.”

  17. What Does Aspiration Mean?

    Aspiration means you’re breathing foreign objects into your airways. Usually, it’s food, saliva, or stomach contents when you swallow, vomit, or experience heartburn. This is common in older adults, infants, and people who have trouble swallowing or controlling their tongue.

    Most of the time aspiration won’t cause symptoms. You may experience a sudden cough as your lungs try to clear out the substance. Some people may wheeze, have trouble breathing, or have a hoarse voice after they eat, drink, vomit, or experience heartburn. You may have chronic aspiration if this occurs frequently.

    Read on to learn what increases your risk for aspiration, complications, treatment, and more.

    Fizza’s constant prattle about “aspiration” certainly makes me want to vomit.

    Then there’s this –

  18. Dutton is not having a good time. His sneaky move to deport the refugee family from Biloela 21 days before their appeal period expired was thwarted by the Federal Court this morning. A few days ago his decision to take mobile phones away from asylum seekers in detention was overturned by the same court, and tonight this happened in the Senate –
