Tonight, Anthony Albanese gave the traditional Reply to the Treasurer’s Budget Speech made on Tuesday night.
But the MSM (including THEIR ABC) will not mention his speech, replay it or allow the general public to see that he HAS done the work, HAS made the speech and HAS crucified the Morrison pack of jackals!
In three days time we will begin to hear, again, the ‘Why doesn’t Albo ever say anything about the Coalition’s incompetence?’. Why doesn’t he ever take the Government to task?
While Albo did good, some people saw it, more people will see it from the Left-wing part of Social Media spreading of the word, in total, those people will be mainly the true believers and there will be insufficient reach to change the result of a Murdoch-organised re-election of a new Morrison Government.
Australia’s Leader of the Opposition has become a non-person in the Media.
Old Sam had been a stockman all his life. Up in the Kimberley where his ancestors had lived for thousands of years.
As an Elder of his people he was sitting in the front row of a crowd being addressed by Scott Morrison on one of his highly publicised photo ops to remote Australia.
Scomo was explaining how the Coalition had done so much for the original Australians while brushing away the flies which gathered wherever there were mammals of any species.
Sam had been listening closely and noticed the problems Scott was having with those pesky flies buzzing around his head.
So he spoke up and asked, “Having some problems with circle flies, there, are ya, Scott?”
Scomo stopped rabbitting on about how good the Liberal Party was for Indigenous People and said, “Well, yeah, if that’s what they are. I’ve never heard of circle flies”.
So Sam says, “Well, circle flies are common on stations. See, they’re called circle flies because they’re almost always found circling around the back end of a horse.”
Scott says, “Oh,” and goes back to talking about how great all the new Liberal Policies will be for everyone, including the group of stock-men sitting listening to him. Then after a minute he stops, looks back at Sam and says, “Hey! Wait a minute, are you trying to call me a horse’s arse?”
Old Sam says, “Oh no, Scott. I have too much respect for politicians and the work you all do to even think about calling you a horse’s arse”
Morrison says, “Well, that’s a good thing,” and goes back to his prepared slogans and half-truths.
After a long pause, in a voice the rest of the station workers can hear, Sam says, “Hard to fool them flies, though.”
Olaf the Norseman is shopping at a supermarket when he comes across an old lady in a wheelchair, almost in tears.
“What’s the matter?” asks Olaf.
“Oh,” sobs the old lady. “I want to have a look at the frozen puddings but, as you can see, there are three steps down into the chiller cabinets.”
“No problem,” says Olaf, lifting her onto his back. “I’ll take you.”
Olaf strolls through the chiller cabinets with the old lady on his back. She selects several puddings and puts them in the basket he is carrying for her.
At the other end the old lady’s husband is waiting with her wheelchair.
“I’d really like to thank you,” says the old lady as Olaf sets her back down in the chair, “but I don’t even know who you are!”
Olaf just waves and walks off.
“I was really worried about you,” says the old lady’s husband. “What have you been doing?”
She replies, “Well, I’ve been through the desserts on a Norse with no name.”
My sunset tonight.
So sue me, you thin-skinned bastard son of a Delaware Desiree and an Apartheid Pontiac!
I think there is a sense that this is a watershed moment for Ali Morrison and his gang of forty thieves.
The press conference held by Christian Porter, redacted AG of this Parish, entitled to many things by birth and education, emphasised that he is also entitled to the presumption of innocence.
I am a follower of a number of Left Wing Facebook groups and a Twitter reader. On both platforms i saw a huge increase in discussion, not only of Porter, but also of the position of the Prime Minister. Adding to the discussion is the apparent willingness of the News Corp media outlets to discuss the matters relating to Linda Reynolds, ‘She is a lying cow’ and Christian Porter. Both are currently on medical leave from their jobs.
It would seem that there is pressure on Scott Morrison to ‘Do something’. Alternatively, in the background, pulling strings, sherpening knives, there is a ‘lean and hungry man’ preparing for the Ides of March.
Yet whatever is happening in the background there seems to be a widespread mood, on both sides of the political fence, that Morrison must go.
The hope on the Right is that only a small number of Coalition Members are involved and that only those few will be removed from the Front Bench in a potentially neat little spill.
The hope on the Left is that those forty thieves will go with the current leadership.
Will the fourth non-election leadership change in the Liberal Party be fatal for Conservative politics? The reaction on both public and mainstream media seems to indicate that it will be.
