Abbott’s credibility auction… Going, going… GORN!
With Abbott’s diplomatic dunderheadedness going off the scale over his ill-advised, badly executed and just plain STUPID “Shirtfronting” threat to one of the most powerful men in the world, just prior to the G20 summit, one has to ask the question; “WFT, if anything, was he thinking?
I mean really???
Putin was in the KGB, he’s reportedly a martial arts master, and he has access to intercontinental ballistic missiles that could finish us permanently, if he could be bothered, or got irritated enough??? 😯
He also has some very powerful friends and allies, like… China! 😉
And as China is one of our major trading partners, and one that Abbott is bound and determined to sign an FTA with, we should now, more than ever, regard any FTA with a healthy dose of scepticism.
There are already serious questions hanging over the TPP, and with Abbott’s display of gross diplomatic incompetence; not just over the last week, but from day one, and only brought back into sharp focus with his latest offering , we must now seriously consider what he will sign us up to? 😉
Can we really trust anyone from this mob to act in the best interests of our country, or in fact anyone other than themselves and their backers, cos we certainly can’t trust China to work in anyones interest other than their own 😯
Now, at the risk of stating the bleeding obvious, on many issues China is Russia’s main ally, and likewise Russia with China. So with that in mind, you would have to assume that when Abbott started out by calling for a fair and open investigation into MH 17, immediately followed by his determination that Russia and Putin, were directly responsible, any bargaining power he might have had with China is, shall we say… on shaky ground? ❓
And that brings us kicking and screaming, to the G20, where we will see our hapless treasurer trying to sell his outdated and disproven ideologies for world fiscal growth, based on the old, and largely discredited “Trickle Down” theory, at a time when many, still struggling, economies are looking to stimulus packages, after years of failed right wing austerity measures.
Then there’s Abbott?
At this point, and in the interests of full disclosure, I have to say that I personally was looking forward to the promised confrontation – which I knew deep down was destined to be a fizzer – in the vain hope of seeing Abbott monstered by “Vlad the Impaler”!!!! But alas ;-( like everything that Abbott has ever promised, there’s no correlation between what’s promised and what’s delivered; which is predominantly… Disappointment 😡
So sadly ( and I say that with a truly heavy heart 😥 ), Vlad won’t be requesting a “Shirtfronting” one on one, with our Prime Moron.
And while the News Corpse rags (and I do mean <i>rags</i> ) are ramping up the rhetoric in favour of their
man tool Abbott, in the hope that they can whip up enough redneck sentiment against Putin, to protest his attendance, our once proud nation is becoming an object of world wide ridicule, courtesy of the “Clown Prince of Yesteryear”, and his merry mob of mendacious misfits.
Now, whether you believe in Putin’s guilt or innocence is irrelevant, as he is, as previously stated, one of the most powerful men in the world, and as such, should be treated accordingly; and to be accused and then threatened by:
- At best, a pissant wannabe with the nous and diplomatic skill set of a house brick!
- At worst, an ideologically driven nut-job, with a grossly inflated idea of his own importance, a propensity for playing domestic politics on the world stage (to an audience that couldn’t give a crap) whilst placing both feet firmly in mouth, and… with the nous and diplomatic skill set of a house brick! 😯
(I lean to the latter 😀 )
Is nothing short of gross, puerile stupidity, and was inevitably going to be treated as such by the Russians. 😯
I should also say that Bill “Me Too” Shorten, has proved that he, like Abbott, is not fit to run a political party, much less the country, as he happily jumped on board with Abbott’s chest beating extravaganza. 😡
And rather than Adults running the show, the country’s leadership, including our pathetic FM Bishop, look more like a bunch school yard bullies, having a pissing comp behind the shed, to proved who’s got the hairiest chest, and who can piss the furthest? 🙄
So with Abbott doing everything possible to keep the Climate Change elephant in the room, off the table, while the rest of the world wants and tries to find solutions 😡 , and Hockey dribbles on about the ideologically driven, economic policies of a bygone age, the reality is that we might be the “Host” nation, but our impact will be more along the lines of the “Ghost” nation! 😯
And if there was another world leader with the same diplomatic skill set that Abbott displays, then we would probably be told, in no uncertain terms, that under the direction of our dickhead PM, we are quickly becoming an irrelevant, redneck backwater, and an international joke! 😯
And the one thing that’s all but certain, is that the G20 is going to look a lot like;
