When only tin cans and a string will do!

When only tin cans and string will do!071127-MalcolmTurnbull-c83d7dd4-7a4b-49d5-b4d6-07e082dd963c_thumb[1]

As I watched the lying Turdball in QT taking his usual dishonest and arrogant approach to his portfolio, quoting his own brand of rubbery figures to show that they are the ones to deliver 25 mbs,  (WTF?  what happened to 100mbs or even 50 mbs?)  And his  report telling us that most households will be happy with, and only need  15mbs, a few things occurred to me.

Why is it then that it’s perfectly fine and reasonable to provide the citizenry of Aus, with the third worlds best practice broadband   😯   , when;

  1. He’ll happily invest  his own money, in first world fibre to the premises.   😈



  2.  Abbott, is spending millions, on an armoured Beemers, when for a few grand, he could have bought decommissioned “armoured personnel carriers”.   😛
  3. They are spending billions on  a “Joint” Strike force plane with big ?’s over its abilities to… well… fly amongst other things   😯
  4. They are spending billions on road infrastructure, for the 20th century, even though we’re in the 21st century???   O_o
  5. Abbott is buying a bigger and better executive airliner to carry all his rich mates around the world with him?   WTF?   😡
  6. Abbott’s “signature policy”, is a gold plated PPL scheme to predominantly benefit the people who need it the least?   :/
  7. They are spending millions on Royal Commissions, which are nothing more than political payback?   😈

And the waste and mismanagement just goes on and on and on…

So why is it that when it comes to the LNP, who are employed by us to do what’s in the best interests of the country and its people, we are told we have to tighten our belts and go economy class, while the LNP fat cats and their mates go first class at our expense?

The truth is that although the 7 examples above are cited with tongue somewhat in cheek, if and when Turnbull, for example, goes to buy or lease a new car, his personal priorities would dictate which brand and type of vehicle would be most suitable.

Now we know that dear old Malcolm, doesn’t suffer the financial constraints that the vast majority suffer, and I don’t claim to know what car/cars he owns, but I would venture to suggest that if he wanted:

A high performance sports car, 

Subaru WRX STI

Subaru WRX STI

He could choose from;

  • Subaru WRX STI  premium, for around    $60,000?
  • BMW M5 for around $230,000?
  • Any Aston Martin, Range around; $230,000 – $510,000?
  • Audi R8 up to around $400.000 ?

    Ferrari 458 Italia

    Ferrari 458 Italia

  • Bentley, up to around $665.000 ?
  • Ferrari, range around $460.000 – $700.000 ?

To name but a few, so hands up who thinks he’d buy something like

Volvo s 60

Volvo s 60

the WRX?

A safe luxury sedan,

  • Volvo from around $60.000 ?
  • Mercedes S class, Range $200.000 – $400.000 ?RR Phantom
  • Bentley $450.000 – $670.000 ?
  • Rolls Royce $610.000 – $1,020,000 ?

In his place, would you choose the Volvo ?


Great Wall x200


  • Great Wall X200 for around $26.000 ?
  • BMW X5 range $83.000 – $150.000 ?
  • Mercedes GL class range $ 130.000 – $220.000 ?


    Range Rover Vogue

  • Range Rover range $170.000 – $240.00 ?

Would he even consider the “Great Wall”  option?

A small runabout,

Chery J3

Chery J3

  •  Chery J3 around $16.000 ?
  • Mini range $27.000 – 40.000 ?
  • Volvo V40 around $40.000 ?
  • Mercedes A class around $40.000 ?


    BMW 1 series

  • BMW 1 series around $40.000 ?

Would the Chery get a look in?   😉

The reason that I have made these comparisons, is that if you compare the price difference, between the cheapest brand in each category, and the brands someone like Turnbull would consider, you can clearly see that the better options are in almost all cases at least double the cheapest option, and in most cases much more than double, and in some cases up to a factor of 10 or more.

And if the safety and security of your family was at stake, and you could afford it, I have no doubt that you too would happily pay that premium to future proof your loved ones, giving them the comfort, safety, security and piece of mind that comes with the latest and best technology.

So the question is why, in the age of communication, when Australia is one of the richest countries on the planet, with extremely low levels of debt (despite Abbott and Hockey’s best efforts to prove we have burgeoning debt, by pretty much doubling it in 12 months), we cant buy the best available for the sake of future proofing our country’s communication technologies?

Or to go back to my car analogy, why are we being given a “Chery J3, while the rest of the world are driving a Merc S class or similar?

And Malcolm, why is it that for you and your LNP “mates”   ❓   , it’s nothing but the most expensive and best, yet “When… it comes to Australia… Only tin cans and a string will do?”

    Nice one Truthie 🙂 … know what to send turdball for chrissie don’t we, some new tin cans and a nice big ball of string 😉
    Not content with just destroying anything Labor the mordick government are out to punish the ‘bad’ population for not supporting the lying nasty party at the previous two elections…


  2. I’m the green pattern. Why all of a sudden am I getting your notifications my friend when I couldn’t before?


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Hey John, 🙂 mate, I’d say it’s because you’ve got a new blog name and it’s independent of AIMN 😯 cos I think your notifications used to go straight to wordpress reader, which was only accessed through admin ❓

      At least that’s all I can put it down to 😉 But I’m glad it’s working now 😀

      Cheers mate 🙂

    Myself , i can’t see the big rush to hook up to the NSA, google, military industrial complex, corporate and 1% ‘s pipeline to this countries pockets and assets. I enjoy the net, when its working or when i can watch a youtube vid unbroken if at all. There’s a discussion-now closed- they don’t last long on the ABC anymore- about how to change the political situation to peoples advantage above the corpirat and wealthy and carteled. Voting isnt going to do anything ever. Once the google plumbing is connected too, end of story. It’s a rich man’s world, crap in everyones nest , walk off, public lives and pays for it like funding industry to be clean. More than likely too, just a ploy to get the few fat arses through the gate in this present fest and political time frame.
    They boast of 22 billion to be spent on the frontline in Australia from return. Hasn’t happened yet or in any format that raises the status of the public. It will be extravagantly spent to hang us further. Let alone explain the 5000 per eye and up to ten year wait for Fred Hollows 25 cent 10 minute eye op. Heights version of joy is to announce that the time frame will be chopped by a quarter by 2025 and Murdoch will tell us we are happy and ahead.
    Any infringement into corrupt cartel ground and the people will start getting roughed up. Already happening in many places. No relief in sight.
    The world is going to own this country in a very short timeframe. If you didnt make it in the 70’s-80’s your stuffed.
    I know of dozens of people have unlimited download and paying for it. But have to use their phone or tab , the line has been hopelessly choked for years. On occasion, they get through unbroken but lucky to see a tube vid in one hit let alone a movie.
    Lifes not going to get better for the majority. The bulk of generations going back to the 50’s are dying sour and lost of hope and fearful for decades. The country is a sham and the only consolation many have is that it will soon be owned by the world and not our arseholes above who will leave their children and theirs to it too.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Hey Jim 🙂 I think before long, the plebes will be revolting 😯 I asked the question a while ago “How long before we see blood on the streets?” And we found out, it took Abbott about a year 😯 And sadly, there’s more to come, courtesy of the rabid right. 👿

      Stay safe mate 🙂

      Cheers 😉

    Good piece Truthie, god you sound like me raving on about bloody Turnbull and his crap NBN.
    This bloke has got to be the biggest smart arse in the LNP and that’s saying something from a party chock full of them. Your car analogy is a good one,why settle for a Morris Minor to protect the family whenyou can easily afford a Merc,the man is a total two faced ”’ let them eat copper son of a bitch leaving millions of Australians a 3rd rate NBN to appease that horrible piece of excretment in New York. Anyway,how are things going lately? have they come to take you away yet? any black BMWs parked outside,Muslims under the matress?. Burkas in the backyard? Cheers.””


    • driftwood12 says:

      Damned if you do or don’t Brickbob.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Brickbob, thanks mate 😀

      Yes he’s such a smug, self satisfied dickhead and a typical right wing fop! 😯 and every bit as big a liar and cheat as Abbott and the rest of the mendacious LNP mob… and I do mean MOB

      And don’t get me started on Murdoch 👿

      Mate, this bloody weather is killing me… Slowly but surely, but you get that 🙄

      As Judes said, the heat and humidity is crippling for this time of year, and so will the electricity bill, as despite Abbott’s assurances, and our 2.5 Kw PV, they’re still going up, and the aircons are working hard already 😯

      They are such a bunch of lying pricks! 😈

      WRT black Beemers, I’m teaching Charlie to attack Tories, and you know when you’ve been attacked by a killer schnauzer 😉

      Cheers mate 😀

    I just got my universal length string and two Soup cans sans labels.
    The instructions says that getting two cans means I effectively have WIFI with my NBN.
    More cans will become available as the Node which makes the cans catches up to demand.
    But I`m stuck here with aroung 1.2 Meusli Bars per byte where the promised 12.5 Meusli Bars.
    At least we now have a copper standing every house connected to the Node can maker.
    It could be worse,this could be Pynenutz Ministry 😯


    • driftwood12 says:

      Too close to Halloween to mention Pynenutz ministery Biggy. Brrrrr.


    • Truth Seeker says:

      Biggy mate, it’s hard to find an ethernet connection in a soup can 😯

      And to be honest, the only difference between Turdball and Pynenutz, is that in the minds of some (idiots), Turdball still has some credibility 😯 whereas Pynenutz doesn’t have much if any, even amongst the rabid right 😯

      But I doubt either one has done an honest days work in their entire lives 🙄 and Turdball would be lost if he couldn’t make at least one “Conrovian” reference a week! O_o :/ o_O


    • Frank Ston says:

      I don’t mind the can and string. At least it’s better than the dial up I was getting with Telstra in the early days.
      The major problem that I have is that the wankers in the Flat Earth Society got it so wrong.
      Now that the earth is no longer flat, I find that if I want to connect to someone in Perth, when I’m calling from the east coast, my string hits the ground somewhere near Ceduna.
      I must give Malcolm a ring. There must be a solution other than promoting that Flat Earth lot again.
