Cast in bronze and gold plated…Is still a turd!
Of late, at least some the MSM’s attention seems to be squarely focused on right wing nut-jobbery.
With ICAC exposing the LNP’s truly corrupt underbelly, and Fairfax working to limit the fallout from their culpability in deceiving the voters into believing that Abbott was the answer to the imaginary emergencies that he himself identified. 😯
The truth is that the only relevant question that Tony Abbott is the answer to, is:
Who’s the biggest lying dickhead in Canberra, and Murdoch’s puppet?
But I digress, 😀 Cos Abbott is not, and will not be cast in bronze, or gold plated; although he is a turd.
They did try rolling him in sparkle, but due to ministerial cuts, they could only afford bread crumbs, which certainly didn’t make him any more palatable to the public. 😉
And again… I digress 😯
Now I have to say that when Clive Palmer first came into view politically, I saw a man very much for his own agenda, self obsessed and with a personal vendetta against the QLD state LNP and Newman in particular (Which I thought was a great spectator sport).
But now, I actually think that Clive, (bless his little cashmere socks) has had a sort of epiphany, and his self obsession has taken second place to his desire to be seen as the “Peoples Champion”, fighting for the poor and the downtrodden, whilst being a right royal pain in the arse for the mendacious Abbott and his despicable LNP. (Also a great spectator sport! 😀 )
Sadly he has turned his back on the white charger, for the slightly less credible red Mercedes Gull wing super car 🙄 but with hindsight, I suppose the only real equestrian option would be something like a draught horse 😯 Or a Ferrari? 😉
I’m not discounting the fact that up until recently, Palmer was a life member of the LNP, and its biggest donor. And I still have serious reservations about his self declared level of altruism.
I also have real concerns about his senators, and alliances, but with little choice other than to sit back and watch what unfolds, I think for now, I will give him the benefit of the doubt, as it has the potential to be the best show in town. 😀
Turnbull on the other hand, has been performing like some overblown Shakespearian character, putting on a show designed to impress the likes of Julie Bishop (who gets a tad doe-eyed, watching him), and the other spoilt little rich kids of the LNP.
Now I know that there are those that will say that he’s a “Moderate”, and some who actually think he should be in the ALP, but that’s just, as Abbott would say, like CC… CRAP!
I will concede that Turnbull seems to have more of a belief in CC, than most of his colleagues, but as the old saying goes… “One swallow does not a summer make”, or in his case “Acknowledgement of the bleeding obvious, does not a progressive make”.
And for those from the left, who think that Turnbull has something to offer them, as leader of the LNP, I have two names for them from relatively recent history that prove Turnbull is where he should be, and among like minds, if not friends; Godwin and Grech!
So let’s make no mistake:
Clive could possibly turn out to be exactly what we thought in the first place; a 24 ct, solid gold right wing nut-job, or he may astound us all and be a real champion of the people? But either way Clive qualifies as solid gold.
But Turnbull, who has lied through his porcelain capped chompers, about the NBN, the state of the economy, and pretty much everything else IS a more moderate nut-job, but nevertheless, he’s still a NUT-JOB!
There’s an old expression used extensively WRT Abbott, that talks about not being able to polish a turd, but that holds true for Turnbull, cos he’s not been polished, or rolled in glitter, and the truth is that ‘Dear old Malcolm’ despite being Cast in bronze and gold plated… Is still a TURD!
