Compare The Pair

Following Iain’s lead I have become an avid recipient of Labor’s emails to the party faithful. Given that I’m also signed up to the Libs’ emails, I’d like to ‘compare the pair’.

Here’s one of Labor’s recent attempts to rally the troops.

Now I was confused. What was I supposed to say about Labor as I knocked on those thirty doors over the weekend? That I loved Joolia or I supported Kevvie? That wouldn’t do. I thought long and hard.

Thankfully Labor came to the rescue.

The next Labor email to the faithful had helpful examples of what to say when door-knocking.

yep, I reckon the Liberal Party can’t come up with something that smart, eh?

But just to show you, here’s the Libs’ latest attempt at emailing. It’s full of big words and stuff no-one wants to hear about, you know, adult stuff..

 So I reckon another weekend or two of knocking on doors will have it in the bag for Kevin Rudd, unless of course Kim Khardasian or someone from Big Brother puts in for the Labor leadership…

    You point out the essential difference here GD, namely that labor is all about the emotion for the return of the Dear Leader and a total absence of anything that is even vaguely about policy where as the Coalition is offering grown up policies with adult reasoning for their virtues. The risk for the nation is however that the Rudd fandom will obscure the VERY clear shortcomings in Labor’s ability to deliver on anything that they promise.at all.

  2. GD says:

    Once again, compare the pair..

    Yes, this is our Prime Minister, although you’d be forgiven if you couldn’t pick which one.

    It seems Kevvie, rather than governing or formulating policy, prefers to tweet pics of himself shaving. He then has the audacity to suggest that Tony Abbott ‘man-up’ about a supposed debate. Perhaps Kevvie should ‘man-up’ and learn how to handle a razor. He is after all, 50 something.

  3. Ray Dixon says:

    You’re showing your fears, GD, with your overuse of mockery. Are you worried about the election? You should be … because Tony is.

  4. GD says:

    Iain, I notice that Ray doesn’t even address your claim that:

    labor is all about the emotion for the return of the Dear Leader and a total absence of anything that is even vaguely about policy where as the Coalition is offering grown up policies with adult reasoning for their virtues.

    It’s rather telling isn’t it?

  5. GD says:

    Yes, Ray, I am afraid, I am fearful that show-pony Rudd will convince Gen Y voters, who have no experience with politics, that Kevvie, or is it Milky Bar Kev, will make their TV screens pretty for the next few years.

    I’m also fearful that brain-dead, rusted-on Labor stalwarts, who wouldn’t know whether their union was helping them or ripping them off or not, will also side with the ‘cooking with gas’ bloke.

    Anyway, ‘let’s zip’.

    So yes, I’m fearful of another term of of Labor.

    I’m fearful of an ever increasing deficit which currently stands at $200 billion. Horrifyingly, Australians are paying over $8 billion dollars a year in net interest payments to service Labor’s debt.

    While Gen Y voters can be forgiven for not understanding the ramifications of such a debt, ie less money to spend on hospitals, infrastructure and education, it is gobsmacking that older Labor voters still reckon Labor is the best pick to run the country, the economy and on Labor’s recent attempts to censor us, society as a whole.

  6. Iain Hall says:

    Sadly GD I think that Ray too has succumbed to the raw emotion of the Rudd revival and he can’t really explain his faith in the “dear leader” except to say that he is not Tony Abbott…

  7. Ray Dixon says:

    Iain & GD: I’m hardly one to be “emotional” about politics or politicians and I’m quite content to leave the ‘pollie love’ to you lot, as you both seem to think that Tony is the bees knees and actually has policies just because he says he’ll “stop the boats” and “rein in the debt”.

    The fact is that Rudd is believed and trusted by most voters, whereas Abbott is not. Of course, that means they must be ‘brain dead’ according to GD. When did that happen, GD? Were the same people ‘brain dead’ when they preferred Abbott over Gillard and when they preferred the coalition over the ALP? Obviously these brain injuries are only a recent acquisition.

  8. GD says:

    Iain & GD: I’m hardly one to be “emotional” about politics

    If so Ray, why are you supporting the most disfunctional government Australia has had in living history?

    Labor’s track record is abysmal, policy after policy has failed. Australia now has the biggest debt in recorded history. 50% of Labor ministers have quit with the re-instatement of the original ‘failed’ Labor prime minister, and yet you, and countless Gen Y gnomes, with little or no experience with politics, reckon KRudd leading a failed, almost bankrupt Labor government is better than a sensible government lead by an adult, and supported by many other sensible adults.

    It’s all well and fine to say that you’re not worse off from the past six years of Labor, but the damage has already begun. The deficit has to be paid back. Australia cannot keep borrowing money from China.

    Refugee issues will not self-correct, they will fester until they become a major problem for Australia.

    Meanwhile in Bright all is sunshine and glitter.

    Give it a few years, Ray, and under Labor you’ll be advertising for customers in Arabic and Hindi.

    Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

    If we don’t, as a nation, start looking after our birthright, our sovereignty and our heritage, we may as well open the borders, invite all and sundry to join our generous welfare scheme and when the money runs out moan about how capitalism has failed us.

    This is the model of socialism. It has failed in Britain. It has failed in Europe, yet misguided leftards in Australia still reckon it can work here.

    A vote for Labor is a vote for anarchy, or is that popularity?

    Grow up Australia.

    Tony Abbott’s Booklet ” Real Solutions” I keep mixing up with Adolf Hitler’s final solution.

  10. Richard Ryan says:

    GD—–what a dill you are, gee you are lucky that I don’t know where you play your GIGS, would send over a bus full of Muslims there, to show you you what the word anarchy means, that is not a threat, but a fact. Shalom.

  11. Ray Dixon says:

    why are you supporting the most disfunctional government Australia has had in living history?

    That question/statement is wrong on two levels, GD:

    Firstly, it’s just your opinion that they are “the most dysfunctional government Australia has had …”. I don’t think they’re dysfunctional at all but I agree they’ve lacked real leadership and a clear vision for the second 3 years under Gillard. And that’s just my opinion.

    Secondly, I would not have supported them if Gillard had stayed. But with Rudd back, I think they now offer the better option for the next 3 years.

    You sound mighty worried for a person who just over two weeks ago was barracking on and celebrating victory before the game was over. Don’t worry, Labor are the still the underdogs and it will be a miracle if Rudd wins.

    The again, he just might!

  12. Ray Dixon says:

    And this, GD …:

    If we don’t, as a nation, start looking after our birthright, our sovereignty and our heritage, we may as well open the borders, invite all and sundry to join our generous welfare scheme and when the money runs out moan about how capitalism has failed us.

    … is a classic example of your extremism and prejudice against immigrants of certain ethnicity, origin or religion. Look, we’ve had major immigration into Australia since our beginnings from all over the world and it has served us well and will contuinue to do so despite your alarmist views. The coalition (if they’re elected) is not going to clamp down on muslims so you better start campaigning against them too. Have you called Pauline yet?

  13. GD says:

    Richard Ryan vomited:

    you are lucky that I don’t know where you play your GIGS, would send over a bus full of Muslims there, to show you you what the word anarchy means, that is not a threat, but a fact.

    You threaten me then pull back by saying it’s a fact. What a slimy creature you are.

    Hey weirdo, you’re welcome at any of my gigs or anywhere else I am. Just front up and have the guts to identify yourself.

  14. Richard Ryan says:

    Bastille Day AH you racist vomit, get the wallet out of your mouth—-I can’t devulge my name coz it would effect my income in the music industry, snigger snigger.

  15. Richard Ryan says:

    Correction—–divulge!

  16. Richard Ryan says:

    Tony Abbott’s “Final Solution” with boat people—–turn back the boats, and let the bastards drown.
