Night of the living dead, Aussie style

Its strange just how much we rely upon the the Internet and how much we miss it when it won’t work. I mention this because when I come home from shopping yesterday our connection was down and as I needed to do a search for a particular piece of information it was actaully rather annoying. Thankfully I now know what I need to know and can finish the task I have to complete.

That said this morning I was rather amused by the way that the Age is trying to counter the very bad poll result for the government by once again tiring to raise the ghost of Workchoices.

Of course the interesting polling result that they are trying very hard to do the bait and switch on is this one:

Now which is a more important story on this winter morning? that our PM is less preferred in her position than Tony Abbott? or that a disgruntled aspirant to the Liberal party presidency still thinks that there should be I R reform? Its the choice between a “dead buried and cremated “policy and a  political Zombie in the Lodge as far as I can see and the villagers just can’t wait to light their torches for the procession to vanquish the demon

Cheers Comrades

    Isn’t it interesting, even though the Libs quite literally shot both feet off with Work Choices, how the world has turned ?

    Labor have their failure, entirely on their own heads. The carbon tax will be just as toxic to labor, as work choices was to the libs. Funny how they didn’t learn that lesson all those years ago ?

    There own financial mismanagement, cash splashes to entice the swinging voter’s loyalty, massive increases in government rates and charges, and an agenda that quite literally got thrown into the bin after the first six months, due to being broke. The rest of their term is being spent in survival mode, again as stated, wondering how the hell they are going to spin their failures ?

    Labor cry hards would say, the world financial crisis, the refugee situation, the massive fall in export income and so on. But, as I have said on these pages, for Australia, there has been no financial crisis. Certainly bank lending has tightened, but so it should have. However, banks are still lending at record levels, for housing, industry expansion, and so on, so the world is still turning. Where is this massive disaster Labor foretold of ? Didn’t happen !

    The average voter is a lot more politically aware these days. No longer are we fooled by the rhetoric coming from the fools on the hill in Canberra. We can see right through Labor’s spin, and as can be seen in the polls, even with Abbott being the absolute “tool” that he is, unless he does something incredibly stupid between now and the election, is an unbackable favourite ?

    For Labor, it will be back to school for at least two terms.
    Maybe then, with taking classes in perhaps How to balance a cheque book 101 in the interim, they may learn that governing is not all about self gratification for today, but planning for a sustainable future. That seems to be a lesson that Labor has never learned, whenever they have had the reigns, nor ever will by the looks of it ?

    Yep, at least two terms I reckon, but not much chance of them passing that course though…

    Don’t worry about the libs shooting themselves in the foot Iain, Labour are so bad at the moment that I suspect Julias epithaph will read ‘so bad I actually made Tony Abbott look good’!
