WTF have we done?

WTF have we done?

If you're not rich, you're in my sights   :twisted:

If you’re not rich, you’re in my sights Β  😈

As I watched the pomp and ceremony of the opening of the 44th parliament, it started to sink in as to WTF we have done, by giving this mob a guernsey.

We saw Abbott still in election mode, as if he has no idea what government is really about, and probably the most frustrating thing is that he continues to lie, sloganeer and spin, taking credit for the boats slowing, credit which is clearly not his to take, and blaming the previous administration for everything else.

We saw him call for a gentler and kinder parliament, after he presided over the most dishonourable and despicable example of negative and disruptive opposition this country has ever seen.

We saw a very dignified and classy Governor General, having to read a propaganda sheet from the new government, riddled with spin and untruths.

We saw Bronwyn Bishop openly declare that she would be a speaker for the whole house,images respecting and upholding the rules and standards of the parliament, with the view to Β more dignified and productive sittings, and specifying that the proper titles of members should be used and respected.

We then saw the first sitting day, and pretty much all that was said the day before along with the governments prior commitments to “Adult” and “Transparent” government, was immediately and unceremoniously dumped within the first hour. Β  😯

The first question was for a suspension of standing orders, so that Scott Morrison could explain why they are not telling the people what’s going on with Indonesian negotiations and the Β tow back/ turn around Β boats policy.

So on a question of government transparency, they voted to gag themselves?   😯

Then whinny Pyney trashed the previous days commitments to quality “Adult” government by puerile name calling, which when questioned under a point of order, was ratified by the speaker, who in the process put the lie to anything she declared the previous day. Β  😦

imagesWe saw the opposition dissent the speakers ruling, and the subsequent vote uphold the decision which means that the bar for parliamentary standards has not just been set low, but has been completely buried.   😯

They promised a “No Surprises” government, and it’s the one promise that they will have no trouble keeping, as after watching this dishonest and morally devoid rabble for the last 6 years,Β nothingΒ they do, should surprise anyone! Β  😯

The truth is that this is a government shrouded in secrecy; and claiming that they will not be commenting or giving shipping reports which will aid the people smugglers, to justify their secrecy is just complete crap, as the people smugglers sent the boats, so they know exactly what is happening, and anything they don’t know, or aren’t sure of, they can find out from their own newspapers, like the Jakarta Post.

So we can rest securely in the knowledge that we have an “adult” (Read IDIOT) government that won’t tell the kids WTF they are doing, when it’s the kids that put them there in the first place.

On 7.30 last night, Abbott proved once again what a complete knob he is, and like with so many areas of LNP policy, he is an incompetent twerp, and diplomatic light weight.   😯

And if the first two months of this alleged government is anything to go by, the question many are, and many more should be, asking themselves Β is:

WTF have we done?

      Biggy, thanks for that mate 😎

      Yes I have to agree, the vision we’re seeing of Shorten and Abbott being all palsy walsy, is sickening, and they remind me of the old days of wrestling in the local town hall, where the protagonists would pretend to beat the living snot out of one another, for the patrons, and then go off arm in arm after the fight, to laugh about all the old ladies who thought it was real 😯

      It appears that every day lately, the LNP bury the bar a little deeper πŸ™„ and put their collective feet a little further down their own throats.

    Hi Truth Seeker,
    I appreciate your great comments, you say it all as it really is, I watched Question Time yesterday and was very dejected, then saw the photo of Abbott & Shorten happily chatting, what gives? I wish Albo had been on the job. Don’t know if I can face Question Time to-day, probably will though, am still hoping for improvement I guess.

      The problem with watching QT is that we now know for sure that we won’t get any answers from the government, so all we can hope for is thatAbbott continues to mislead the parliament until he gets called to account, and that should be worth watching for πŸ˜€

  3. Truthie, Abbott & Rudd did that pose for pic thing as well. I think that it is a well orchestrated
    event for the media to feed on. We should find out who organized it, bet it wasn’t the ALP. Most probably the Murdoch press again.

    As for yesterday’s parliament sitting, loved Tony (Burke that is) taking on BB. Sounds like the ALP might have decided to give TA & his mob as good as he gave them over the past 3 years.
    Nearly time to watch this afternoon’s version of Romper Room (oops QT).

    Good evening, Truth Seeker. This afternoon I had a ‘thought bubble’ after watching QT. I quickly put it on a Facebook page but with your indulgence I will air it again here…
    It is clear to me that this delusional mob have an unseen ‘war cabinet’, a group of advisers and tacticians that lay out the game for them. They come up with the ideas (like raising the debt level and then blaming Labor for the apparent necessity) and the phraseology and slogans, and continually feed it to the ‘front men’ who take it into battle. I don’t believe for one minute that Abbott and Hockey and Morrisson have come up with these absurd strategies themselves. The question is, who are these ‘unseen’ people and who pays them?

        I think this might give you a clue as to where todays instructions came from

        Gina Rinehart meets Coalition MPs in secret trip to Canberra
        Australia’s richest woman, Gina Rinehart, invited a small group of Coalition friends for drinks in her private hotel suite, after planning a secret flight to Canberra to visit the Agriculture Minister Barnaby Joyce.

        Some of Mrs Rinehart’s closest political friends, the Speaker Bronwyn Bishop and Liberal Party senators Cory Bernardi and Michaelia Cash, were invited to join the billionaire for the intimate gathering on Wednesday night.

        The iron ore magnate, who has vigorously supported Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s plans to abolish the carbon and mining taxes, suggested the politicians meet for drinks in her Canberra hotel room to avoid media attention.

        It is understood the reason for Mrs Rinehart’s surprise trip to Canberra was so she could attend Parliament House to watch Mr Joyce’s maiden speech on Thursday as the newly elected MP for New England

        t is understood Mrs Rinehart’s secretary booked a room in the Hyatt Hotel and organised a private jet to fly from Sydney to Canberra late on Wednesday.

        The billionaire had also planned to meet senators Bernardi and Cash and the Speaker, Ms Bishop, for lunch on Thursday after Mr Joyce’s speech.

        Mrs Rinehart’s close friendships with Coalition MPs have come under scrutiny during the recent expenses scandal. In 2011, Mrs Rinehart flew three Coalition MPs to India in a private jet, where they watched the granddaughter of her business partner marry in front of 10,000 guests.

        At the time of inviting the politicians to the wedding, Mrs Rinehart was about to clinch a $1 billion coal deal with the bride’s grandfather – G.V. Krishna Reddy, the founder of GVK, one of India’s largest energy and infrastructure companies.
        But while Mrs Rinehart paid for the politicians’ flights to the wedding, Fairfax Media revealed that the three MPs – Barnaby Joyce, Julie Bishop and Teresa Gambaro – collectively claimed more than $12,000 in ”overseas study” allowances to pay for their flights home.

        Mr Joyce’s justification for billing taxpayers was that he conducted a one-day ”study tour” in Malaysia. During his afternoon in Kuala Lumpur Mr Joyce gleaned such insights as the fact that ”proximate to Kuala Lumpur and running to Singapore are substantial freeways that would look quite in place in an Australian capital city”.

        Three months after the politicians joined Mrs Rinehart at the Indian wedding the GVK conglomerate bought a majority stake in the billionaire’s ”Alpha” coalmine in Queensland’s Galilee Basin for $US1.26 billion.

        That’s interesting and concerning. If you have a link to such an article with more detail that would be appreciated. This article in the Australian states that electorates with the highest non-voters included indigenous communities: http://blogs.theaustralian.news.com.au/mumble/index.php/theaustralian/comments/election_2013_turnout/ … “the tops of these tables combine low official turnout (particularly in electorates with high indigenous populations) and high informality, particularly found in high-migrant areas in Sydney’s western suburbs….”
        I have also read elsewhere that traditionally indigenous people are much more likely to vote Labor than for the Coalition.

    Not just the corporate puppetmasters, Cornie & friends, while in opposition the LNP’s negative campaign taught them, yes, they have learned something – and that is a shock.

    They are attempting to enforce barriers to protect themselves from the very tactics they used on Labor, these past 6, but most particularly, 3 years. For example, the silence on boat people – they saw how much this debate debilitated the ALP (meaning Labor let itself be forced into a game of “who can be the toughest on refugees), therefore, knowing full well that draconian methods do not stop people from fleeing even worse conditions elsewhere.

    They are in siege mode – a siege to protect themselves from the very tactics they used (and are still using) on Labor.

    After watching the sham that is parliament QT, I have realised that we now have our own judge Judy, in the likes of speaker Bishop. The difference being, that in judge Judy’s case, all parties signed an agreement, that stipulated, that all judgements would be agreed to prior to the event. I don’t recall seeing an agreement between the ALP and the coalition, unless Shorten and Abbott worked it out in one of their meetings or were they just contretemps?
