Abbott’s War of Class.

Abbott’s War of Class

With the LNP claiming almost daily, that the ALP are waging a class war, I felt compelled to look at what’s really going on and who are the real culprits in the class war debate.

The truth is that the ALP are trying to achieve balance in a system which has been sharply skewed in favour of the wealthy, to the detriment  of the majority of Australian citizenry, and it’s the LNP that are trying to skew legislation to further benefit the rich.

 So it turns out that it’s   Abbott’s war of class.

Abbot speaks extensively

About a war of class

And the divisiveness of Labor,

But he’s talking through his arse

It’s about right wing projection

And his propaganda spin

And another silly slogan

That has little truth within

🙄

It’s about his mates like Rinehart

And that Murdoch lot as well

And their crazy ideologies

And their puppets, right wing hell

That they want to foist upon us

In the name of all that’s fair

But the dinkum truth is, it’s the rich

About whom, they really care

😯

The carbon “tax” they say is bad

And hurting everyone

But the truth is something else again

Of credibility, they have none

Their alternate plan will aid the rich

While the poor, will be left hurting

As the big polluters get tax payer funds

For the carbon they are spurting

👿

On super they say the war is waged,

Against the richest retirees

That’s 16,000 millionaires

Who’s income tax they’d freeze

While millions of the lowest paid

Will cop another slug

From Abbott and his LNP

The right wing, class war, thug

😉

He’ll also hit the lowest paid

With taxes they must pay

By reducing the tax free threshold

To what it was, in Howard’s day

Along with cuts for pensioners

And the school kids bonus too

As they seek to save some money

By flushing futures down the loo

😯

They’ll tax 3,000 businesses, so

Wealthy women can be paid

At pay rates quite exorbitant

For personal choices made

Whilst many from the poorer set

Who lacking moneys voice

To have the family they desire

Still struggle with the choice

😦

So when Abbott talks of class war

He’s speaking of his own

The ones who think they’re born to rule

Who’s wealth is clearly shown

In all their vested interests

In the way they play the game

To win, no matter what the cost

Is always their main aim

😯

And Labors class war’s just another

Of Abbott’s many lies

To redirect the focus

From the dishonest things he tries

Like ruining reputations

Treating many just like fools

But the saddest thing, is the LNP

Are Murdoch’s… biggest… tools

😀

    Hi Truthie. Well, you’ve done it again. This class war thing has been allowed to simmer away without anyone taking effective aim at it. There are so many issues that need to be taken up and scrutinised. It makes me tired just thinking about it.

    Anyway, as you might have guessed, my favourite line is, ‘But he’s talking through his arse…’

    Meanwhile, while you have been composing this lovely pome, we have a new post at Fair Media Alliance about Julian Assange, and all those good folks who would like to see him killed/murdered/assassinated – whatever, and who have used the media to spread their hate and their incitement to murder. http://fairmediaalliance.wordpress.com/

    Happy day.

      Hi Kate, thanks for your comment 😀 and you continued support 😎

      Yes there are many statements that they get away with as there is no mainstream scrutiny of anything that the LNP says, so it’s up to the likes of you and me and the other great blogs like CW, IA, AIMN, TPS etc to do the work that they should be doing 😦

      I have been very busy the last couple of days and have much reading to catch up on, which I hope to do today and tonight, but we have builders starting tomorrow so still lots to do 🙄

      I look forward to reading your latetst, which I am sure is up to your usual, fine, standard 😀

      Keep up the good work 😎

      Cheers 😀 😎

    abbott
    wants to take every thing away and give nothing,
    i wonder where he gets his examples from
    when he says he is a Christian well i don’t believe it,, he just uses the word

    Christians and non Christians alike care about people and what happens to them

    he does not care on bit of us, in fact i wonder if he even likes his fellow aust.

    the word power is used to much in the lnp vocab for my liking.

          Martha, Unfortunately my local member is Peter Slipper and I doubt he would be particularly interested 😯 and sadly this is a very strong conservative area.

          Having said that, there is a lot of dissatisfaction with Newman so I am hoping that there may be a backlash against him and Brough in Sept. 😀

          There are certain ALP members who are actively informing them of sites like mine, so they may well get to read some of my poems. 😀 I know PMJG’s father was a fan of poetry so you just never know 😉

    An interesting time in Australian politics.
    Deception to the left of us, deception to the right.
    All are participating in varying degrees.
    From a personal view, I love it.

    Great effort again Truthie,
    As it is Labour Day I thought you may be interested in a little old songbook my dad left me.
    It always reminds me of you, with your continuing fighting spirit.
    Songs to fan the flames of discontent. Industrial Workers of the World

    The Little Red Songbook was first published by a committee of Spokane, Washington locals in 1909,[1][2] (It was originally called Songs of the Workers, on the Road, in the Jungles, and in the Shops—Songs to Fan the Flames of Discontent.)[3] It includes songs written by Joe Hill, Ralph Chaplin, T-Bone Slim, and others. The early editions contain many of the labor songs that are still famous, such as “The Red Flag,” “The Internationale,” and “Solidarity Forever.” Thirty-six editions were published between 1909 and 1995.
    you can download a pdf copy if you are interested.
    I find some of the songs inspiring, but if nothing else, it is a good history of workers struggles from the early 1900s on.

      Haven’t seen you around much since your return from hols, hope everything is OK?

      Thanks for the thought, and I will check out the little red songbook when I get a chance, as we have builders starting this morning, and it’s shaping up ti be another busy week for us.

      My sister arrives from the UK on Thursday for a couple of weeks, and it’s her birthday on Saturday.

      Not sure how much writing I’ll get done, but will just have to play it by ear 😀

      I will still be around, as although she will be staying with us, she will be spending a lot of time with my parents, as they are getting old, and due to the state of the tory run UK economy she’s not sure if and when she will be able to get back out. 😦
