LNP Self Immolation
The LNP Government 2013 kicked off badly (& many contend, unnecessarily) following this own-goal. ALL promises broken in short order!
Six years of seething disappointment at having been unable to either convince/bribe ANY of the Independents to help them break the hung Parliament deadlock, having pursued mercilessly Liberal ‘rat’ Peter Slipper over a tipple-trip, the LNP seemed intent on punishing anyone/everyone for their frustration with the ideologically driven Budget2014 necessitated by a non-existent ‘budget emergency’, which disappeared completely by Budget2015. Legislative inertia persisted throughout. PM Gillard has a superior record by far.
Inaction on Global Warming, attempted annihilation of the renewables industry & it’s attendant jobs, decimation of science generally, derogation of our International responsibilities on Asylum Seekers, rorting of ‘entitlements‘ (far in excess of Slipper & ~$900) and much much more have given rise to the current shemozzle.
Any semblance of impartiality at the Trade Union Royal Commission has been blown away by Commissioner Dyson Heydon (don’t people with two surnames/first names irk?) who inexplicably agreed initially to an invitation to address a LNP Fundraiser dinner and then took 24hrs to pull out. Obviously this compromises any hope of impartiality.
