PM elect, Abbott…The story so far?

PM elect, Abbott… The story so far?

So here we are, a week into the new era in Australian politics, and what have we seen?

Well the truth is, on the governing side… Not a lot.   😯

Abbott promised much from day 1 of a new government, and the first thing that we saw,images was that Abbott, although happy to share the campaign with his girls, and occasionally Margie, when he made his victory speech, he wasn’t prepared to share the podium with anyone!   😉

His speech itself was quite interesting, for all the wrong reasons IMHO.

Firstly most victory speeches include, very early on in the piece, the word “Humble”, which Abbott’s did not.   What he started with, was a “humble” gloat about the “change of government” which, when the rabid right sycophants reacted with rapturous applause, he repeated.

imagesTo be fair, he did say the “humble” word, in the last sentence, but IMHO, that was too little too late, as it came across as an afterthought, followed by his family which also seemed to me, like an afterthought.   😯

Then there were the usual postmortem’s by the usual suspects, stating that Labor was in disarray after a comprehensive defeat, some of which actually started before the election was held   😯   WTF?

So apart from the LNP cheers squad, commonly known as the MSM, the reality is that despite losing the election, the ALP did much better than most were predicting, and the advent of  a multitude of micro parties and independents in the senate, certainly promise to test Abbott’s negotiating skills. The same ones that took him straight into opposition last time around   😯   .

If we look to the old adage of “Start as you mean to carry on”, then what have they done since stealing winning government, and is this indicative of what we can expect in the weeks and months ahead?

Well, we shall see.

Now to the promised first week of stopping the boats, repealing the carbon Tax  Price, going to Indonesia, the budget emergency etc  etc; what we have seen is;

  • 3 new boats in his first week?
  • Indonesia saying NO to turning the boats around (Where it’s safe to do so?).
  • Indonesia saying NO to buying their old fishing boats.
  • The ALP and the Greens saying NO to repealing the carbon “Tax”.
  • Rudd still caretaker PM?
  • No date announced for the trip to Indonesia.
  • Apparently No budget emergency after all?   WTF?

Well, PM elect Abbott has been seen giving briefings to dept heads, and rallying the troops, telling them how good they are for winning, but otherwise keeping a low profile?

On the positive side, George brandis has been very busy in the capacity as incoming

Peta Credlin, Abbott's de-facto mum.

Peta Credlin, Abbott’s de-facto mum.

Attorney General, writing a letter of reference to get Tony Abbott’s chief of staff Peta Credlin off of a DUI charge, by using his position as an incoming minister of the crown and potentially the highest legal officer in the country, to intimidate the magistrate, and provide a “Get out of Jail free” card.

It must be really good to know that when you are part of an LNP government, the laws of the land just don’t apply to you.   😯    And we can all rest easy knowing that they are sparing no expense to deal with the important issues in their first week of government.   😯

imagesAnd then we have Julie Bishop, the supposedly incoming foreign minister, cancelling the appointment of Steve Bracks to New York Consul-General, which was announced six months ago; a post that he quit his job to take up.   😯

The good thing is though, that she hasn’t verballed anyone this week… That we know of anyway?

We have heard that they have sent out a directive to dept heads to make way for LNP appointees throughout whatever is left of the public service.

Abbott has started the search for a three star General, to head up his slogan “Operation Sovereign Borders”, so that the military can take charge of the operation, that isn’t a military operation, to turn the boats around, that won’t turn around, and stop the boats that won’t stop coming… WTF?

.

Sophie Mirabella, who just can’t find her moral compas

We have also seen the sad demise of that doyen of nasty, Sophie Mirabella,   😯    which has to be my personal highlight of the first week of Abbott’s, Murdoch owned government.   😉

Murdoch’s MSM has made much of the ALP’s lack of leader and shadow cabinet, even though Abbott has not announced his front bench, and none will be sworn in until sometime in the second week… we think!   🙄

On Friday, the ALP resolved their immediate problems of leadership and shadow cabinet by installing Chris Bowen as interim leader, with the previous cabinet members resuming their roles in the opposition front benches, until the ballot for leader can be held, and a new shadow cabinet named.

The question now is, “Are we any closer to knowing what an Abbott government will do, and can we have any confidence that we will be getting the “Adult” and competent government that we deserve and were promised?”

Well, the indications are that we will be seeing lots of “Jobs for the boys/girls”, self serving MP’s like Brandis, who will think nothing of using his position to help people within the LNP to avoid justice being served to them, and a raft of excuses to justify broken promises and backflips.

We will also see Abbott and the MSM blame everything on the ALP, all the while trying to hide the fact of the grand realisation that governments aren’t run by slogans and brain farts, but by clear thinking, a vision for the future,  good policies and politicians who actually have an idea of WTF they are doing.   😯

So after the first week, do we;

  1. Have any reason to feel more confident about the future?    Well I certainly don’t!
  2. Have confidence in the LNP’s ability to work in the national interest?   No!
  3. Seriously believe that any of his promises for the first 100 days, or in fact the first term, will actually come to pass?    Not likely!
  4. Have any confidence that the Murdoch press will start reporting the news, instead of trying to BE the news?   NO!
  5. Feel that we are getting better value for money out of Abbott PM than we did from Abbott LOTO?   Not really!

In his victory speech, Abbott said that; “Australia is under new management and is now open for business”.   😯

The question now is if , they have started as they mean to carry on, what sort of business are we open for?

  • Another AWB type scandal?
  • More Thomson and Slipper cases?
  • More backflips than the Russian Olympic acrobatics team?
  • More opportunities for millionaires to become billionaires, as the divide between rich and poor becomes a gaping chasm?
  • A PM who wants to be known as the infrastructure PM, while ignoring the real infrastructure needs of a 21st century country whilst concentrating on providing nothing more than  roads, many of which will be toll roads?

The truth is that after an election campaign that saw very little policy detail and costings, but plenty of lies, spin and rhetoric, and delivered the PM elect, that as LOTO, was responsible for said lies, spin and rhetoric, as well as the lack of detail and costing, we don’t seem to have much to show for the millions of dollars that an election costs and our democratic efforts?

We have an MSM that still refuses to hold the LNP to account, but will run with anything that can further discredit the ALP, and a Claytons government that prior to the election screamed crisis and emergency, only to now act as though there’s no rush to do anything?

So what can we say about the first week  of, PM elect Abbott… The story so far?

NOT… BLOODY…  MUCH.

  1. Me thinks the man has run out of puff after 3 years as LOTO. He looks tired & jaded doesn’t he & perhaps a little worried. How on earth is he going to manage being criticized by the MSM. Oh that’s right, he’s still their white haired little boy, or at least that is what the Murdoch/Fairfax/ABC still want us to believe.
    Can’t wait for it all to unravel for him/them all. What is good for the goose is good for the gander I reckon.

Something just creepy Christian evangelistic about that). Abbott’s family would need some well deserved time out. Many of us make mistakes on choosing a partner, I can imagine that getting out of a Catholic marriage is even more fraught than your average secular one and the bigger the public profile the more potentially damaging for children.

    TS, it is, as we learnt with Labor, all about perceptions. We need to ensure the correct perception is built within the community.

    What Abbott said and dos, seems to be heard as much overseas, in fact more so, that in this country.

    Ridicule seems to to be the state of play, when talking about Abbott.

    I am enjoying giving Abbott the respect he gave the Labor government.

    The only thing I regret, it is so easy to do so. Not much of a challenge.

    In fact, unlike Abbott;s treatment of Labor, we can keep to truth and facts. Do not have to ,make it up.

    This week should be interesting.. Maybe by Wednesday, we will get a government. Who knows. I suspect ewe will also get a list of department heads that are to go.

    We will see Twiggy back in the saddle. Telstra getting back into the game.

    Along side this, will be the first public happenings of the Royal Commission into institutionalist child abuse. Scouts first in the firing line, I believe.

    Not sure if we will hear, that Cando, is free to do as he likes in Queensland, when it comes to the environment and mining.

    On top of this, we have the Thomson hearing going ahead, The Ashbey matters cannot be far behind.

    Yes, an interesting week indeed.

    Yes, I believe, that after more than a week, the PM elect, is to face the media. Wonder how stage managed that will be.

    I am sure, that all we will hear, is the new slogans.

    And Bishop goes off to the USA with a large group of people, traveling business class, which I have been told, was the same under Labor.

    Maybe someone should give Abbott a camping stretcher, so he can set up a bed in his office. Will save more money.

        Tony’s slow deliberate speed as incoming Prime Minister, is in part designed to get politics off then front page, in deference to more feelgood sporting stories in the mainstream media. After all, we have a Minister for Sport, but not one for Science. He can dream on, as many of us are both alarmed and alerted by his coming to power, and the 47 % who chose not to vote for him will grow steadily in coming months.

        But another reason is that he is obliged to run some of his plans past his mogul patron Rupert, given all the rich support he has had from News Limited in the past 3 -4 years.
        However, Rupert is a very busy man, not as available as Abbott would like, fending off well founded corruption claims in the UK, while sorting out his messy divorce too. Rupert will be comforted by the fact that with Abbott as his puppet leader of Oz, and all his editors toeing the line, his business interests here will be, at least in the short term well protected, and he can attend to more pressing matters.

    Rudd top strategic thinker: ex-US official

    Kevin Rudd may have had more influence in shaping US policies in Asia than any foreigner since Singapore’s founder Lee Kuan Yew during the Vietnam War era, a US government official says.

    Kurt Campbell, who was the State Department’s top official on East Asia during Barack Obama’s first term, says the former prime minister left “almost ocean-vessel-size shoes to be filled” in helping the United States think strategically.

    “Despite personal foibles and a complex relationship in Australia, I think in many respects Kevin Rudd has been the most important strategic thinker in Asia in the last generation,” said Campbell, a key force in Obama’s “pivot” of putting a greater US focus on Asia.

        Thanks Mate, just a bit of fun.

        Of course there’s…

        Treasury – Joe Hockey’s life experiences have led him to the conviction that the only way to fix an “ailing” economy is to fit a gastric band. I doubt his colleagues will look past him – although they can these days, he no longer blots out the sun to the extent that he did.

    Oh SHIT!
    I forgot Industry and Innovation – apparently Sophie is closing the gap. Does anyone have any garlic and a wooden stake? Bit of holy water wouldn’t go astray either.
    But anyway, she’s no certainty as there is a push to have more women in Cabinet.

    Thanks Truthie,
    You have said it well indeed. I am just getting back to the blogs I am still in delayed shock I think. Still can’t quite believe what we have done.
    I just don’t know quite how to respond as each day passes the horror becomes more real.
    Yesterday was a hard day with the sacking of Flannery.

      Richo, thanks for your comment, 😎 and I feel your pain 😦

      Every day of this government brings new horrors to deal with, and like you, I genuinely fear for the future of this country if we cant get rid of this destructive rabble called the LNP. 👿

      If there is a bright side, it is that the longer they go on, the more they will show their true colours. 😀 he is going to have a hard time getting much of his agenda through the senate, and Murdoch will be busy fighting the legal processes in the UK and the USA. 😉

      Abbott might have won this battle, but he hasn’t won the war. 😀

      Cheers 😀

      BTW if you feel light a bit of light relief, check out “Said the Abbott to the Bishop… Victory” 😀
