Sould Bill Shorten be on suicide watch?

Hands up anyone who is a fan of “Yes minister“, OK now tell me is Bill Shorten not working from one of the scripts in this interview! My oh my how the Labor party lurches like a drunken sailor from one misstep to another! Heck,  Shorten even looks like he is suicidally depressed in the vision, he certainly has absolutely no enthusiasm for the message he is tasked with selling. Maybe that is how the Gillard government will end. Some poor MP may just decide that the whole sorry Saga that is the current Labor government is too shameful to live with and that suicide is a more honourable end than sticking around to share the ignoble dissolution of this  excuse for a government. From the looks of his demeanour it looks to me as if poor bill Shorten should be on suicide watch, he should clearly be kept away form the drug cabinet, sharp knives, stout rope  and any sort of firearms.

Cheers Comrades

    Labor only have themselves to blame for where they are now. Last year they should have ditched Gillard and her CO2 tax as it was obvious that neither was accepted by the electorate.

    I wrote about this at the time: http://www.onlineopinion.com.au/view.asp?article=12572

    Now we have a strange situation where the electorate has stopped listening to the government, and the government has stopped listening to the electorate.

    It can only end in tears for the government come the next election.

  2. Iain Hall says:

    Actually Leon I think that for members this government the tears are already well and truly begun. You watch I bet that there will be a rush of members announcing that they won’t stand again at the next election just as there was in NSW and Queensland.

  3. Bill Shorten is probably a fine bloke. Appointing him to the job as Minister for Small Business reflects the the total, ignorant disdain that the ALP has for the significant proportion of the Australian economy that we small business proprietors represent.
    Having said that, I almost wanted to hug him and congratulate him for being number 1 in the audition queue for the SBS version of “Yes Minister (Oz)’ which, I am sure, is scheduled.

    Welcome to the Sandpit Harry 😉
    I agree with you that Shorten is a decent bloke which is obviously why the poor bugga has such a pained expression on his face while delivering such shallow endorsement of Gillard.
