After trying to watch the first few days of QT, for the first spring parliamentary sitting week, and finding myself getting angrier and angrier, at the blatant lies, denials and spin of the Abbott regime, I came to four conclusions. 😯
- Abbott and his “Team Australia” LNP are obviously inhabiting a parallel universe, where white is black, up is down, night is day, lies are truth, and sociopathy is the normal! 😯
- The arrogance, hubris and delusion of this mendacious mob of miscreants, is positively mind boggling.
- The new speaker is just as much, one of them, as was Helmet Hair! 😈
- Under this mob of mendacious miscreants, our democracy is pretty much stuffed! 😦
The latest sorry episode started the week before this current sitting week, after a marathon sitting of Dyson Heydon, where he took 10 days, and lots of public funds to adjudicate on his own perceived bias 😯 … Finally coming to the decision that, in the mindset of Bronnie “Helmet Hair” Bitch-chopper; “There is no point of order” WTF ❓
Now, as if this was not sufficient evidence of not only perceived bias, but actual bias, we then had the revelation that council assisting the RC, coached Kathy Jackson on the questions she would be asked, and how to deal with said questions! Bias… What Bias??? And once more with feeling… WTF ❓
There was also the not so small matter of complaints made by Peter Wicks and others, WRT the attempted intimidation of RC witnesses, by Jackson’s running mate, Marco Bolano , which were not even followed up, despite the fact that that is exactly the kind of union thuggery the RC was allegedly set up to expose! 😯 … And again WTF with triple twist and pike. 😕
But I digress 😛
So what was Abbott’s response, in QT?
After much hysterical obfuscation by Prissy Cryin’, when confronted by the revelation of Council assisting the RC, coaching Jackson, Abbott finally got the call 😯 … Well not only did he deny that it had any bearing on the credibility of the RC, but he also tried to make a distinction between Kathy Jackson the corrupt union fraudster, and Kathy Jackson the heroic whistleblower… W T Actual F ❓
And although one would think it impossible, QT went down hill from there 😯 with Abbott going for a new Guinness world record of repeating himself, and his favourite saying “Crystal Clear” in conjunction with the usual barrage of blatant abuse, lies, spin and political thuggery. 🙄
And not only from Abbott, but also from the rest of the front bench, emboldened by their not so glorious leader 😯
which brings us to the other madnesses of the week so far.
Now when Shorten suggested that a good place to start on the refugee crisis, would be an immediate one off, 10,000 intake, Abbott had already stated that any more Syrian refugees, would be from within the existing targets 🙄
Then, when Piecer Mutton returned from a quick chat with the UNHCR, the crocodile
tears flowed like Grange at a, Bronnie attended, LNP fundraiser, followed soon thereafter by an alleged commitment to an extra 12,000 Syrian refugees.
Of course, it was always going to be more than the Labor proposal, as it’s not about the refugees, but all about the political wedge 😯 (Oh cynical cynical me 😈 )
And then there’s the money 😯 and the $44 million to the UNHCR, to help care for 240,000 refugees 😉 which seems like a lot of money, and it is, except when you compare it to the $55 million used to settle 4 refugees in Cambodia, and the $80+ million for an RC union/ALP witch hunt 😯
Now I have to say, I would much rather have seen the entire $179 million sent to the UNHCR, rather than the largest percentage ($135 million ) wasted, as it was 😡
Although, I suppose it could be argued that at least they’re getting better value out of the promised $44 million for 240,00 refugees, than they got for the $55 million to resettle 4 refugees 😯
Of course, there was also the small matter of the long awaited/expected decision to bomb Syria, which Abbott went to great pains to make out that he agonised over 🙄 even though we all know that he made the decision to bomb, long before the “request” from Obama was even made 😯
And there was no $$$ attached to the commitment to bomb, so we are left to wonder how much more we could have given the the UNHCR if Abbott was not focussed on his own re-election prospects… Surely not 😯
And while we were bombarded with all the usual self serving rhetoric about how much we are doing for refugee “Women, children and families” from persecuted minorities, there was a report on the QLD news, that Abbott has sent our Premier Annastacia, a letter telling her that she cannot expect any more money from Canberra, unless she sells off assets, as she went to the election saying she could run QLD without asset sales! 😯
Now I was under the impression that the people rejected the LNP selloff plan, which means that he is withholding QLD taxes, and penalising QLD’ers for voting against something they clearly did not believe in or want!
Now again, he’s going for the political wedge, but he’s so stupidly delusional, that he doesn’t realise that he’s actually trying to wedge the people, more than the QLD government 🙄 , and I just wonder how that will go down at the next election, in a state that has just recently given the state LNP the full moon 😯
Then on Wed night, the last straw (man) 😯 , I saw Abbott interviewed by Leigh Sales on 7.30, and even I was completely dumbfounded by the lies, spin, hubris and pathological delusion displayed by our PM (Prime Moron), and every detrimental and derogatory name and comment i’ve made and thought about the mad monk came into stark relief and were confirmed beyond doubt 😯
Even SWMBO, my usual voice of calm and reason, after hearing his madness, suggested that he needs a “Dynamite suppository” 😯
The man’s a raving lunatic!
There was also stupidity from Braindead, Abetz, Bernadi, Hockey Bishop Jnr and a plethora of other LNP’ers, but the highlights of political low, covered herein are IMHO more than sufficient to conclude that:
Abbott’s not only delusional, he’s positively certifiable!
