@hingehead,
But think of all the jobs it creates for mail deliverers.

@RABEL222,
And for the people who have to carry the mail applications to the shredder and then the dumpster.

@hingehead,
A friend of mine has started a facebook page called 'sending job applications to Senator Abetz' ....seems like a good idea. My brother went to school with him - said he was a prick back then as well.

If Clive says it, it probably won't happen - a US presidential impeachment is as likely.


Clive Palmer hits out at 'failed' budget, calls for double dissolution

Date
July 31, 2014


James Massola, Latika Bourke

Clive Palmer says the federal government's budget has crashed and he has challenged Prime Minister Tony Abbott to hold a double dissolution or implement a mini-budget.

The leader of the Palmer United Party also accused Treasurer Joe Hockey of lying by suggesting Australia could lose its AAA credit rating, and while he declared his in-principle support for the work-for-the-dole program, he was ''totally opposed'' to job seekers having to apply for 40 jobs a month.
MP and mining magnate Clive Palmer.

Key crossbench senator David Leyonhjelm also lashed the government's proposal to toughen work-for-the-dole requirements as bordering on exploitation. He called for ''proper'' industrial relations reform instead.

Meanwhile, fellow crossbencher Bob Day said the 40 jobs a month plan was ''nuts and insane''.

The comments came as Mr Abbott said on Wednesday the government believed looking for work should be a ''full-time job'', while noting that the measures were ''still subject to consultation''.

Warning that Australia's AAA credit rating could be at risk if Parliament did not pass the budget, Mr Hockey also called on Labor to help get the budget back to surplus, while ruling out a mini-budget this year.

Part of Tony's grand scheme to get us fit. Be abominable and get them marching.

Gawd I hope 'hate-boner' becomes part of the political language-scape.

I see Brandis and Abbott have dropped the proposed changes to 18C of the racial discrimination act on the grounds 'Australia needs to be unified against terrorists threat'

God I hope that's their spin to try and save face because yet another one of their stupid, ideological, look after our mates ideas has proven manifestly, and obviously, flawed - because if they believe it's true they are too stupid to run a country. Although that it took them 9 months to back down may point to the 'too stupid' theory.

Can't wait to see how Andrew Bolt reports on this 'failure' to right the 'wrongs' he received via 18C. Actually I can wait - can someone else tell me - I can't bear reading or watching his crap

@Wilso,
How embarassing - Tony actually rang Bolt before the announcement. Hope he sent some flowers too.

Racial vilification laws: checkmate for Andrew Bolt – and George Brandis's ego

George Brandis’s proposals were always compromised because they were motivated as a personal favour for just one man: Andrew Bolt

Abbott carries on the Howard project — unfortunately for Australia

In a 2002 speech, former Prime Minister Paul Keating decried the ugly rhetoric and divisive partisan politics of John Howard. With a few name changes, it could easily have been written about the Abbott Government today.

This government is on fire - or should be.

Background: Treasurer Hockey argued that a rise in fuel excise would disproportionately affect the poor 'Because they don't own cars or drive very far.'

Right, because they wouldn't have to live in the outer urban areas because that's where the cheap rents are - a long way from services and jobs and poorly serviced by public transport.

It's just embarrassing how their cocooned pro-business elitist mind set has opacity set to zero.
