(For Shane's benefit): Stupid things that Joe Hockey said/did.
Takes a week's holiday during parliament's first week with the new Senate 7/7/2014. Like G.W. Bush - when the going gets tough, the tough go on holidays...
16/7/2014 Says he is "ready to by-pass Parliament" if his budget won't get through the Senate. How? He doesn't seem to understand how the Westminster system works.
8/8/2014 Tells other Liberal parliamentarians that "Everyone is against me". Obviously feeling the pressure of having a responsible job by that stage... Whew! Nobody warned me it would be much harder than corporate lawyering...
"Increases in fuel excise will hit the rich harder than the poor. The poor don't have cars or if they do they don't drive very far" 13/8/2014 (Never heard of the rural poor, eh Joe? I guess if you can't see them from North Shore then they don't exist).
"People who want to buy their first home [in Sydney] need to get a good job that pays good money... If houses were unaffordable nobody would be buying [them]". 9/6/2015 (All you need is the right connections like I do!)
There's actually plenty more but I think you get the point. The man lost his job for a reason... he was no good at it.
