Government by lies, spin and blackmail… WTF?

Abbott 1+Government by lies, spin and blackmail… WTF?

What is it with LNP’ers, that when their lies and spin fail, they resort to the most basic of corrupt and criminal behaviour… Blackmail?

The fact is that Abbott has been using the most despicable style of political thuggery/criminality since  his  LOTO days , when his foundation strategy was to simply lie and bully his way into government, saying and doing anything and everything to fool the people into voting for his Lying Nut-job Party.   😯   And he was relatively successful, right up until he had to do the job he lied his way into, at which point it became blatantly clear that he had no idea WTF he was doing.   😯

And the upshot being that we’ve had 18 months of lies, spin, blame and gross incompetence… Pretty much everything he accused Labor of, and the opposite of what he promised his LNP government would be!   😯

But I digress   😉

At this point, I have to admit that even I with my low expectations of this mendacious mob of miscreants, was somewhat (Somewhat   😉   ) surprised by the advent of  the blatant attempts at blackmail undertaken by both state and federal LNP’ers!

{For those that have noticed that I have been, for some time now,  referring to Abbott’s mob as “LNP’ers”, the reason is simply to identify those that are pissing our country and our futures down their rabid right wing sewage system.   😯   }

But I digress… Again   😯

Anyway, it seemed to come to the fore with Campbell Newman, and his efforts to win , what was for him, the un-winable election , telling voters that even if the LNP won, they would only get the promised “local spending”, if the local member was re-elected too! … WTF?   😯

The funny thing is that I heard a similar line from a NSW state MP just yeserday morning, regarding major infrastructure promises made in the election campaign.   😯

Barely veiled blackmail?… Extortion?…   Mmmm   ❓

It raised its ugly head, and  became an issue in the federal sphere, when Snott Morriscum decided to use children in detention as a bargaining  chip (blackmail),  to push his reintroduction of TPV’s  through the senate, along with unprecedented power to the minister for immigration and border protection.   😯   😈

But despite the public outrage, the senate bowed to the blackmail, and passed the legislation   😡

Then we had the “Intergenerational report”, a report that  is supposed to be “Independent”, but held onto by Hockey, until he could turn it into a political document  full of his lies, spin and fudged figures, designed primarily to blackmail the cross benches, and anyone else stupid enough to fall for it, into passing his failed budget measures.   WTF   ❓

We currently have Mike Baird, trying to claim the moral high ground on the issue of asset “Leasing”, (as a result of Abbott’s efforts to blackmail the states into selling off assets in return for extra funding for roads… The infrastructure of the 19-20th century; the LNP call it “Asset recycling”   😯   ), by trying to rewrite history, telling voters that prices will go down as a result of said leasing/sell off, when the evidence clearly shows to the contrary.   😈

And now we have seen the farcical situation of Pyne trying to blackmail the senate into voting for his failed “Higher Education” legislation by promising that around 1800 scientists jobs would be at risk if his legislation is not passed   😯   , and then performing the now familiar (Almost compulsory) LNP backflip, with pike!   🙄

The problem for Australia is that not only do we now have a PM that is regarded around the world, as a laughingstock, but we have a government whose;

  • stocks have plummeted, to a point where they may and should never recover.
  • credibility is shot.
  • political and fiscal capital is spent.
  • vision and policy direction are nothing more than a bad joke.
  • record in government is one of stupidity, lies and backflips.
  • ideologies have so blinded them to the realities of life, for the vast majority of Australians, that to say they’re “out of touch” is a gross understatement.
  • only fallback position (plan B), is to blame everyone else for their failings, and accuse the ALP of doing all the things that they themselves are guilty of (right wing projection).

So in conclusion, when I first labeled this “government” (and I use the term very loosely) a “Mendacious Mob of Miscreants”, I thought that I was using the word “Mob” as a purely generic term for group, with some sinister undertones,  😉   but now it has become clear that “The Mob” is the  business model the LNP have adopted for running the joint, and what we have is;

Government by lies, spin and blackmail… WTF?

            Hope you are feeling much better now Truthy, also that Mrs Truthy is well on the mend. There is enough going on out there to make us miserable … (We don’t need to already feel poorly before we start each day). Although I have to say there have been a couple of highlights today .. Delicious Chuckle moments. 🙂

              Hey Judes 🙂 thanks for your concern 🙂
              It’s been a rough couple of days, as the lungs have been playing up a bit, and SWMBO has done some damage to her knee that needs the attention of an orthopaedic surgeon 😦 so I’m doing lots of driving at the moment, not to mention Drs appointments and bloody tests 😡

              But you get that 🙄

              Cheers 🙂

              PS: Sorry for the whinge ;sad:

    Very well put Truthie. However they are not even any good at lies they have to compromise their own efficiencies by wasting our dime on spin doctors to write their lies for them. Then they go and only give one side of any yarn they put thus confirming their nut case diagnosis by advertising their unbalanced status..
