    "ALP policies on IR, trade & tax" LOL

    Wasn't it the federal Coalition Govt that blocked the Victorian ALP trade deal with China ?

    Wasn't it the Coalition state Govts that fixed wage rises at 2.5% for public servants ?

    Wasn't it the Abbott Govt that increased super tax on low income earners and excise on fuel ?

    Shouldn't the Coalition be taking this magic lead from Uncle Sam instead of being hypocrites ?

    Maybe they could start by backing penalty rates ?

    Surprised??? That a totally self-possessed blabber mouth, millennialism tub thumper that loves nothing more obfuscation, ditests any scrutiny of his actions or that of members of cabinet and the peudo protecting head of his Church, know the name Brian(pocket $$tuffer)Houston. A PM Who presides over a policy vacuum so rarified that its only saving grace is its impending implosion... has gone missing when there's serious stuff at a federal level to be done..
    Nah... for this gibber'a, it's par for the course...

    C-130 Hercules have roll on roll off fire bombing capacity... Australia has how many of these units to go with our Herc's???... It's big round and there's a whole in the middle.
    How many billion$$ on slated Submarines and the and the Lockheed Martin Joint Strike turd.

    ....'But someone would have had to predicted these type of events'.....

    Schmo Morrison would recognise 'clear and present danger' if it was his own arse on fire...
    Don't forget his putting Nixon in the pillory when she went out to have something to eat while Dandennongs were well alight..
    Like too many god botherer's at heart he's a frightened hypocrite.

    Ohh. and sad to see Eddie Obeid is out jail... but probably not for long.

    Exactly. And what about the old people caught up in corporate collapses like Storm Financial and Equititrust who see their retirement funds disappear in a puff of smoke? The government won't hold corporate grubs to account, so as far as I'm concerned it's their responsibility to clean up the mess and make sure these unfortunate old people can put a roof over their heads and food in their mouths.

    Everyone has different circumstances and we shouldn't take a blanket approach to anything.

    Two quotes come to mind:

    "Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes." and "The greatness of a nation can be judged by how it treats its weakest members."
