It's not ideology, it's business interests.

A comprehensive annotated and cited list of Tony Abbott gaffes

Cannot believe he put his shod feet on table with food in a Indonesian family home

Who could forget

Abbott says what he offers the Australian people is “a return toeconomic growth” ignoring the fact that Australia has had 21 consecutive years of economic growth.

or

Australia wins a seat on UN’s Security Council. Before the ballot Tony Abbott says "If Australia can't come first or second in a three-horse race involving Finland and Luxembourg, there's something wrong with us…Let's face it, it shouldn't be too hard to win a race against Finland and Luxembourg." Hardly appropriate words for someone seeking to represent Australia in international forums with world leaders.

or this classic

On 2GB radio Abbott says “our Prime Minister should not be swanning around in New York talking to Africans, she should be in Jakarta, right now, trying to sort out the border protection disaster”.He said she should be in Jakarta talking to President Yudhoyono. This was at a time when PMJG was attending UN meetings as were the Indonesian President and Foreign Minister. What he said wasoffensive to African nations as well as plain stupid.

Plenty more....

Student Satire from Honi Soit (Source: http://www.honisoit.com/2013/04/the-soin-gillard-cures-cancer-in-spare-time-approval-rating-plummets/)

Gillard Cures Cancer in Spare Time, Approval Rating Plummets

By Honi Soit / April 24, 2013

Federal Labor reached a new low in the polls this week, with the female unmarried atheist red-haired immigrant Prime Minister’s approval rating dropping almost ten percentage points after it was announced she had successfully developed a cure for cancer. Pundits have suggested this slump is most likely a result of the highly successful scare campaign run by the opposition, highlighting the flaws of such a move.

When questioned at a press conference as to whether she saw any meaning in this slump, Mrs Gillard responded “**** them. **** the lot of them. They deserve Abbott those ******* hyper-critical sheep. I mean seriously, he hasn’t even got a platform to run on; all he’s done is criticise every single ******* move we make and then failed to meet us halfway when we try to actually govern the country for you fuckwits. I give up. Enjoy your dialup internet and corporate overlords. I’m moving to New Zealand.” Gillard’s press team later issued a correction to this statement, clarifying Mrs Gillard had actually mean to say “No”.

Liberal Party members were quick to criticise this outburst by the Prime Minister, pointing out that they had in fact already developed their own alternate plan for curing cancer, utilising an existing radio therapy technique that is fractionally faster and only has a failure rate in the mid-range double digits. Shadow Health Minister Peter Dutton prepared a speech to be read by more popular party member Malcom Turnbull, but was stopped at the door by spin doctors who were concerned it might actually look like a policy.

Broadcaster and philosopher Alan Jones used his radio program to raise the concern that curing cancer was little more than a jaded attempt by Federal Labor to reduce the ratio of staff to patients in public hospitals. “They’re just trying to run away from their commitment to increase the number of beds and doctors in public healthcare. Typical Juliar at it again.” said Jones, somewhere in the middle of a two hour rant detailing the excessive lint on his socks and the high price of roasted chestnuts.

Nationals spokesman Barnaby Joyce unleashed a particularly virulent attack on Labor’s new plan to cure all cancer, stating “It just doesn’t apply to the common person on the street does it? I’m sick of the Labor party overlooking real everyday problems, like stopping those bastard aylum seekers from fleeing wartorn dictatorships, and instead pandering to fringe issues like cancer. I’ve never even known anyone who’s had cancer, but I sure as hell run into asylum seekers on a daily basis, and this has got to stop!”

When stopped in the street for comment, average bricklayer Joe Citizen explained “Well at first I thought curing cancer was a good policy, but Turnbull just seemed so sure that this was a ridiculous plan that just push us further into debt. I mean he wouldn’t have had Tony standing next to him nodding so assuredly if they weren’t right, eh? And god knows I haven’t got the free time needed to actually look into the merits of the policies of the people who govern our country, so I guess I’ll just take their word for it.”

Major pharmaceutical companies have also played a key role in the success of the Liberal’s campaign, running a series of ads depicting the average working doctors who will be affected by this policy, played by a number of paid actors standing in farmland wearing Acubras. Pfitzer spokesman and part time boogeyman John Watkins explained “Well, it just worked so well for the mining companies, and no one even noticed that miners don’t actually walk around farmland all day wearing Akubras, so we figured we’d give it a go too. These days people’ll swallow any old drivel as long as it’s on TV, just look at The Project!” The campaign has been highly successful.

The Liberal Party is expected to launch their new advertising campaign “Stop the boats, not the cancer.” early next week, in time for Labor’s next leadership spill.

(Tony Abbott was approached for comment in relation to this piece, but was unavailable due to a prior commitment of laughing maniacally at the gullibility of the average voter.)

Now this is just getting weird


Interesting; SPORTSBET have got Julia at $3.75 to win the election.....about 6 weeks ago she was $8.00...I know cos I put $1000 on her nose......Hmmm !....VERY interesting...people are starting to put money on her even though the latest poll has the Libs with a 16 point lead and an annihilation looming.....but PUNTERS are starting to tell a different story.....Lee


Now there's an election strategy, use your odds to garner votes. Australia is odd.

Oh, and I heard a rumour Howard Sattler molests children. That's not me saying it, it's just a rumour.
