2301 is actually that mad South African guy who writes for the Daily Tele who won't reveal who actually pays him for his syndicated fascist rants. Oh dear, there are a couple of them, Bolt and Piers. But I believe Piers is employed by the Dirty Digger so it must be Bolt. The would not have the professionalism to be employed by the ABC, that is why they hate it so much.
The problem I'm seeing is the Liberals need another term just to finish writing their own policies properly. Most of their ideas could fit on a double sided sheet of paper, there is a serious lack of detail on how to implement, or how much it will actually cost.Contrast and compare that with Labor's NBN... Not costed at all, no cost benefit at all... You fully expect the coalition plan to go over time and over budget... The ALP's NBN had no budget and was grossly behind schedule, constant downward revision of houses passed and connection expactations, towards the end they were taking power network providers to court to gain access to their overhead pole networks (free of compensation I might add) in the small hope they'd get some time back... Yup, Labor's NBN was an epic success.
Case in point their NBN plan, which aside from being faster, cheaper ($19.5 billion), sooner, and involving buying a whole lot of stuff from Huawei, has no real usable details. Lumping NBNco with the problem of how to build it in that short timescale, within that budget, it just asking for a repeat of the previous plan (only resetting all the lessons learned constructing FTTH). I fully expect it to fail massively, go over both time and budget, the poor state of Telstra copper has made it a forgone conclusion.
To call this a show implies it is some sort of entertainment theatre (a circus perhaps ?), but having had two circuses nearby I see there is no comparison. The federal Liberal party is neither entertaining nor a collection of highly trained professionals. Given the choice to watch parliament for free, or pay the get into the circus, I highly recommend the option that costs $35 or so.
Gillard was nothing but a sexist pig that trashed the country financially and threatened the country's sovereignty; to name a few.

I don't know the substance of the allegations other than to say for some reason ASIO didn't think they should be allowed to tender, maybe because Huawei is closely linked to the Chinese People's Liberation Army. Malcolm Turnbull was quoted in the Financial Review a few days ago saying they were probably going to reverse this ban so it's interesting that the Abbott government is choosing to either ignore or play down the security assessment. You have to wonder why - perhaps it's because of the impending Free Trade Agreement that Abbott wants to ram through.
And I suppose your comment here isn't sexist?
So what is so sexist about calling someone a sexist pig when they clearly are a sexist pig?
Dungog DieselSecond, your whole premise that Ms Gillard is "clearly" a sexist pig, as if it's some well-established proven fact, is laughable. While some commentators (mainly right-of-centre) have made the dubious argument that she's sexist given that she dared to 'play the gender card' during her prime ministership, I am not aware of even the most conservative of commentators describing her as a "pig".

But I suppose you would call a spade a diamond?
First, if I walk up to a person from the sub-continent who's minding their own business and having a curry for lunch and I call that person a "curry muncher", any reasonable person would (correctly) consider my actions to be extremely racist. Yet according to your ridiculous logic, I'd simply be stating a fact and wouldn't be making a racist comment at all. Are you serious?Well............if you eat porridge, does that make you a porridge muncher?................ya silly boy/girl.
First this WTF!The first one is a very forgivable mistake, he obviously got carried away in the heat of the moment and the Royals do have that affect on people so I'm told (the Queen especially, she's supposed to be really charming in person).
Time for Mr Abbott to remember he's now the PM representing all Australians, not just the small minded, tight Rsed ones.
