    Yes Truthy 🙂 all you have written has come to pass and we.Mr&Mrs General Public are worse off for it all 😡
    NSW is in meta stupid mode because we see how meta turd polishing has gotten NSW all they deserve-meta madness
    The meta turdpolishers in QLD are at it trying to usurp Palaszczuk`s brand new sanity chamber but even lo and behold she is that forthright that KAP will back her 🙂
    I`m not 100% sure but I believe that NSW electricity consumers can look forward to about $400 per year rise in costs [going by SA pricing]
    All their hospitals will be meta private so too TAFE and like JSA will issue meta diplomas to no-employment [because we`ll fund more corpse dip-ed dead ends]
    The fracking battles are setting themselves up everywhere and the new gas pipeline coming through the Nthn Goldfields WA happens to coincide with Aboriginal Community closures and the yen for yen and uranium-Coal also exists at the Pennyweight Point area
    Even usually neo-conservative NT cattle producers are up in arms as fracking comes for them [the LNP`s new “You are Fracked” policy]
    Tasmania sits quietly being held hostage by their LNP captors awaiting footy season and for the Jacqui Lambie Revue to return home from playing Canberra overendowments {an absolute sellout set of shows that saw her old stage manager lose yet another of his top billings,an Brick with not only eyes,but a brain]
    Anyway folks East and West,grab a front row seat for the Nations Biggest Selloff starring NSW own Andrew Constance and none other than former IPA Prez and “when I want to be Yank” Mike Nahan.playing the role of WA salesman.
    Now Greens reading this will be appalled at my salesman term and not salesperson but I have this to say [ad hominum ad nauseum ad break]
    A wonderful write Truthy 🙂 and you bash Tories so well 😯 🙂

          Never mind JL, how about starting your own ”Left of Labor” party?

          It appears there’s plenty of talent and passion on these and other forums.

            There are enough micro parties out there already SF and i`d rather take back Labor from the RWNJ elements of our Party.
            Right now people like Feeney and Danby are walking the Labor walk and talking the Labor talk-I see it on Twitter but they harbour a secret from Labor supporters as this pair a Zionists and owe allegiance to corporate backers and other Right Wing elements who hijacked Labor.
            Like Paul Howes who was portrayed as people champion of the AWU Presidency like Shorten was but actually undermining the very element that got Labor into power again,it`s Left and Kevin Rudd.
            The Ferguson brothers are special traitors indeed and even called themselves [Soft Left,who treated supporters like they were soft in the head] I digress on that pair and invite The Cornlegend into this fray because of his close experiences thus.
            Stephen Conroy is another who walks the walk and talks the talk but he and his old union the TWU have supported the Right Faction with lies and false member numbers.
            I can go on plenty but leave it for now with this wrap
            Joe Bullock and the SDA are long time traitors who collect from union dues and corporate brown paper bags

            The Labor Left`s time has come as can be seen by Greens taking seats off Nationals and I`ll say this to add-they soon will take seats off the Liberals when their focus changes from just attacking Labor and trying to take Labor seats.
            Our numbers in R&F will be enough to keep the right faction down and also remember that it`s time to show the Labor Executive the power of social media
            Australia does not want or need 2 Right Wing Political Parties just like the US to choose from in a 2pp
            I`ll also add this,just stay back and be quiet,fence sit even or snipe like smartarses and watch your grandchildren`s future disappear into another billionaires portfolio

    He He Truthie, Gee I am glad we are under “good government”. The only change I have seen is that Ministers are now allowed to make press statements that allows Abbott to look on and prove that he does not have to talk to portray a moronic Neanderthal. A noddy who cant nod.

      Problem is, Abbott ids too busy out each day with his stunt/photo op, campaigning, as he did as Opposition leader, in two or three states. Abbott not speaking same language as his ministers. Often contradicting what they say.

      I cannot suggest we really thing about Hockey’s “rethink”. A exercise Abbott believes can wedge Shorten. Abbott is already saying he cannot do anything, as Shorten will not let him.

    Truthy

    Nice summary on behalf of all of us – thank you!

    Gilly, I don’t have a problem with “good government starts today. I DO have a problem with Abbott’s calender in which all of the “today’s” are labelled “tomorrow”.

    PS – It’s probably the first time that Noddy has also played Big Ears.

    How can you have GOOD government when these are nothing more than US pre-approved puppets.

    Ever since the 1975 Gough Whitlam dismissal, AU politics have become one long conga line of US puppets with the exception of Mr Rudd, you all know what happened next, and before you know it there’s the ISDS happy LNP.

    Note that the US is not a democracy but an oligarchy, one that does not consider another nation a democracy unless they privatize their nations national assets.

    Nations are manipulated to become members of these unpopular and corporately designed trade agreements, who will then be used to privatize that nations assets.

    How ‘Free Markets’ Defame ‘Democracy’

    These agreements are increasingly being used to prevent the rise of the renewable energy projects.

    Some recent cases, also involving green energy programs being sued under International Trade Agreement’s, particularly those of the WTO rules, in 2010 the US sued one of China’s wind energy power subsidy program on the grounds that it was protectionist*.

    One of the largest polluters in the world was building wind turbines – great incentive you would think – instead they were being sued by the US as they found some obscure reason to object to a nation subsidizing THEIR renewable energy projects. US Sues China at WTO on Wind Power Subsidies the problem was that China produced all the parts herself, and subsidized the industry – US hypocrisy at it’s usual jaw dropping.

    China returned the favor to the EU, while the US launched another case against India who in turn indicated it will try to do the same to US renewable energy programs.

    *Free Trade Agreements is what effectively ruins a democracy, they are protectionist by design !

    Bottom line = In politics, nothing happens by accident – If it happens – you can bet it was planned that way. ~Franklin D. Roosevelt

      Even though the the gap between the rich and the poor is ever increasing, isn’t it odd that there are so very few real people governments being elected?

      It’s primarily right winged governments coming to power, obediently and willingly catering to the corporate agenda.

      Hockey is a hypocrite.

      Hockey plans to sell government assets, this doesn’t make economical sense to me.

      Government sell off’s are like short term gains which do nothing for long term.

      Take the example of a rental property, earning the owner many hundreds of dollars per week in revenue which can used to fund a good lifestyle – it’s when the sale is concluded that there will be some funds in the bank – just that these funds are no longer generating an income, meaning the seller is worse of than before – in order to continue their life style the seller will have to withdraw from the funds in the bank until there are none left.

      Good business management involves not selling the most lucrative parts of your business to a rival, Hockey is allowing exactly that.

      What motivates the sell off of the goose laying the golden egg?

      Hockey and the LNP are neo-con’s, unfortunately the AU masses do not realize what this really means, newscorpse won’t inform them.

    Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement (TPP) – Investment Chapter
    WikiLeaks releases today the “Investment Chapter” from the secret negotiations of the TPP (Trans-Pacific Partnership) agreement. The document adds to the previous WikiLeaks publications of the chapters for Intellectual Property Rights (November 2013) and the Environment (January 2014).

    The TPP Investment Chapter, published today, is dated 20 January 2015. The document is classified and supposed to be kept secret for four years after the entry into force of the TPP agreement or, if no agreement is reached, for four years from the close of the negotiations.

    Julian Assange, WikiLeaks editor said: “The TPP has developed in secret an unaccountable supranational court for multinationals to sue states. This system is a challenge to parliamentary and judicial sovereignty. Similar tribunals have already been shown to chill the adoption of sane environmental protection, public health and public transport policies.”

    Current TPP negotiation member states are the United States, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Australia, Malaysia, Chile, Singapore, Peru, Vietnam, New Zealand and Brunei. The TPP is the largest economic treaty in history, including countries that represent more than 40 per cent of the world´s GDP.

    The Investment Chapter highlights the intent of the TPP negotiating parties, led by the United States, to increase the power of global corporations by creating a supra-national court, or tribunal, where foreign firms can “sue” states and obtain taxpayer compensation for “expected future profits”. These investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) tribunals are designed to overrule the national court systems. ISDS tribunals introduce a mechanism by which multinational corporations can force governments to pay compensation if the tribunal states that a country’s laws or policies affect the company’s claimed future profits. In return, states hope that multinationals will invest more. Similar mechanisms have already been used. For example, US tobacco company Phillip Morris used one such tribunal to sue Australia (June 2011 – ongoing) for mandating plain packaging of tobacco products on public health grounds; and by the oil giant Chevron against Ecuador in an attempt to evade a multi-billion-dollar compensation ruling for polluting the environment. The threat of future lawsuits chilled environmental and other legislation in Canada after it was sued by pesticide companies in 2008/9. ISDS tribunals are often held in secret, have no appeal mechanism, do not subordinate themselves to human rights laws or the public interest, and have few means by which other affected parties can make representations.

    The TPP negotiations have been ongoing in secrecy for five years and are now in their final stages. In the United States the Obama administration plans to “fast-track” the treaty through Congress without the ability of elected officials to discuss or vote on individual measures. This has met growing opposition as a result of increased public scrutiny following WikiLeaks’ earlier releases of documents from the negotiations.

    The TPP is set to be the forerunner to an equally secret agreement between the US and EU, the TTIP (Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership).

    Negotiations for the TTIP were initiated by the Obama administration in January 2013. Combined, the TPP and TTIP will cover more than 60 per cent of global GDP. The third treaty of the same kind, also negotiated in secrecy is TISA, on trade in services, including the financial and health sectors. It covers 50 countries, including the US and all EU countries. WikiLeaks released the secret draft text of the TISA’s financial annex in June 2014.

    All these agreements on so-called “free trade” are negotiated outside the World Trade Organization’s (WTO) framework. Conspicuously absent from the countries involved in these agreements are the BRICs countries of Brazil, Russia, India and China.
