EXCLUSIVE: TONY ABBOTT’S VICTORY SPEECH LEAKED BY LNP INSIDER

September 2, 2013

The Gutter Trash is in receipt of Tony Abbott’s draft election victory speech which, with thanks to our exclusive sources, we can reveal here…

CaptureFellow Australians

Today I stand before you a humble man and a proud Australian.  The Australian people have spoken this weekend and have sent a clear message that they want change.

My team and I are ready and eager to accept the challenges and responsibilities of governing this great nation with enthusiasm and passion, and I personally stand before you ready to accept the responsibility of the Prime Ministership, which I take on with a great sense of humility, seriousness and commitment.

Fellow Australians, as I mentioned earlier in this election campaign – this is the most important election in a generation, and I stand by that claim now.

It is clear, from this election outcome that subjective things like low unemployment, low inflation and low interest rates are no longer sufficient to maintain this country into the future and what we need now is productivity. Improvements in productivity that deliver great gains in business profits employment opportunities.

{pause for applause}

Because, only through increasing productivity can we make this once great nation grate great again.

{pause for applause}

Only a Coalition government can keep interest rates low improve workplace productivity and today the Australian people have spoken and have given us a mandate to create that change.

Accordingly, later today, we will be announcing a series of innovative workplace productivity reforms that will create a resurgence in business profits employment opportunities for all.

“LeisureChoices” is all about creating a relatively secure source of employment for those disadvantaged Australians who suffer from an excess of leisure time and poor mobility.

This Coalition government will alleviate these crippling conditions with a direct action employment plan that offers underemployed Australians the opportunity to travel and explore new employment opportunities in exotic locations.

{pause for applause}

As I have promised you all, this Coalition will scrap the mining tax.

{pause for applause}

This will happen after we establish a Mining Tax Review Committee to identify and review the complex business considerations that may arise from this detailed, in-depth deconstruction because one thing we won’t do, is make idle promises we cannot keep.*

[*This is a good point, say it two or three times to make it sound important]

{pause for standing ovation}

In addition, this Coalition Government WILL review the Carbon Tax and establish a Carbon Tax Review Commission with a clear 3-year mandate to assess the validity of the scheme with a view to completely remove where it is considered sensible and logical to do so.

{pause for applause}

We have also promised to slash company tax, and increase it at the same time to fund our key commitment of a fully-funded paid parental leave scheme. Treasurer Hockey will take on this responsibility and head a comprehensive panel of experts with a dedicated focus on implementing some sort of scheme within the term of this government.

{pause while crowd goes wild}

This Government is serious about addressing the issue of problem gambling that is tearing some families apart. because some people lack the will power to know when to stop throwing their money away. We know that most Australians enjoy a punt, and so one thing we won’t be doing is punishing the majority of Australians who enjoy supporting their local club with a friendly, social punt and a pint.

{pause for applause}

For this reason, James Packer will head up a team of hand-selected experts with specialisation in gaming psychology, to develop appropriate solutions and responses to tackle this crucial social issue.  The Gaming Workgroup is committed to developing real solutions to address these concerns and have given me their absolutely commitment to deliver a 10-year plan (or draft discussion paper) by 2025 at the absolute latest.

{pause for applause}

Finally, when it comes to asylum seekers, the Australian people have spoken, and have told us clearly, in no uncertain terms, that they don’t want innocent lives lost at sea, or on land for that matter too.  We remain a warm and generous nation, but the reality is that our processing centres are bursting at the seams. We simply cannot take any more asylum seekers.

Earlier this year, we announced that we’d be buying back the boats owned by the smugglers at a decent market price.  Today, I am pleased to announce our intention to expand these plans, and can disclose that we have just purchased Indonesia from the Portugese for an as yet, undisclosed sum.

Indonesia, or Australianesia, as it will be known from October 1st, will fall within Australia’s international borders and become a comfortable home to the already thousands of asylum seekers there, and effectively eliminate the need for them to travel to Australia.

New arrivals will be sent to Bali to learn all about “the Australian way of life.”

My government and I stand, proud and ready to serve, and to make this once great nation, great again.

Thank you.

{hold your hands in the air like Rocky, but try not to grin, just nod sagely, like Jesus might’ve, as crowd goes wild}.

I also thank His Eminence Cardinal Pell for hearing my slavering confessions and granting me absolution for my filthy sins. A round of applause please for the next Governor-General of Australia.

    I thank my wife and beautiful daughters for their heroic efforts in making me seem at least vaguely human. Without their distractions I would be seen more clearly as I am – a stunted neanderthal cunt muttering nuttery whenever I open my mouth.

    Lastly let me give a special shout-out to Australia’s next Treasurer Jokin’ Joe Hockey – every campaign needs a village idiot to take the heat off the leader and you really have left that buffoon Barnaby eating your dust in the Jolly Jester stakes.”

    It is very amusing!

    Much as I loathe Abbott…it’s hardly the end of the world. Expect Rupert (The Magnificent Bastard) to get slated with the lion’s share of the blame.

    Imagine being that petrified of a change in government in what is a very moderate democracy. Not too much will likely change. Adherents need to get used to the reality that, generally speaking, at least half of the population sees things a little different to the way they do.

    It’s not unreasonable to assume that Abbott, unless he treads remarkably carefully (which would be out of character), will shit in his own nest regularly enough to see him replaced or deposed at a not too distant federal election. It probably won’t even be anything radical…just repetitive feet in mouth.

    Watch me squawk whenever he lets his religion influence his governance though. I doubt a majority have much stomach for such things in this country. If he’s shrewd, he won’t do it often, or in a muscular fashion when he does.

    A loss by the ALP is likely to be followed by calls for healing and unity, from a new leader.

    The ALP doesn’t need healing and unity, that’s just code for – ‘don’t rock the boat, and just continue to leave it all up to the hacks/warlords’

    Yes, ToM, I agree BUTI have a few observations:

    ► Had Rudd run a full first term he may (or not) have got the second, Aussies are generally generous with a “second suck of the sav” as Kev might say, at the 2010 election he would have introduced so much successful policy (and learned more about politics – as J Howard did) he may have just got another term … however, the ruckus with Julia and her union backers (who, I believe, were always about getting Rudd out “”because”” he wanted to reform the Party and dilute union power) has had such a “just get it over with” effect on this election that Labour has simply lost it … no verve, no vim, no vigour … neither has Abbott’s lot but they haven’t had the in-fighting that the ALP has endured.

    ► What also struck me is how much Abbott and the LIbNits “”haven’t”” done to simply walk into the Lodge … and how many of the gaffes by the LibNits have been simply ignored, while the slightest misstep by Labour makes the grade … how Abbott gets Aunt Sally questions on TV and will not go on Q&A, how it seems acceptable to media and voters that costings won’t be released until Thursday … the day before the media blackout … astounding stuff … gently questioned but never really pursued by any journo …

    ► I have not seen a union advert, not one … and Abbott was noisily bleating about being swamped by negativity union ads … and for Abbott to claim the high ground on negative ads is ludicrous … he has spent the last six years being Mr Negative … and the ads from both sides are equally cringeworthy … neither are as bad as Clivey’s though … and I did keep his DVD as a future wonder of politics for my grandchildren …

    ► Even Turnbull has finally disappointed me in his pushing the falseness of the NBN FTTN as a fitting replacement for FTTN … waek as water …

    ► In short, the whole hypocritical mess has probably got the majority of voters so pissed off they will just close their eyes on Saturday place a mark anywhere and hope it all goes away till next time …

    Well Rudd/Swan did not release most of their costings when in Opposition until the Friday before the election ie the day before. I guess Abbott is learning from the masters.

    However i think the main point of the costings is to make sure the govt is not lying. I think that is the main reason for the Charter of Budget Honesty. If you recall Beazly said the budget was in surplus before the 1996 election and when Howard got in they found a $10B deficit.

  29. Splatterbottom permalink
    September 3, 2013 3:21 pm

    The costings scare campaign has backfired badly on Rudd, mainly because he went way over the top and was called out by Treasury and even Tony Jones. I guess most people have worked out that if Abbott promises a surplus and delivers a $29bn deficit he is still doing better than Labor. God help Australia if this* is the standard of politician we have brought upon ourselves.

    September 3, 2013 3:39 pm

    I mean that Labor promised a surplus for the last financial year and delivered a $30bn deficit. In view of the statements below, it is no surprise that they have no credibility in economic matters. Here is a sampling of their many, many promises:

    Wayne Swan, May 2010:
    We now expect a surplus in three years, three years ahead of schedule.

    Julia Gillard, August 2010:
    The Budget will be back in surplus in 2013 if I’m re-elected.

    Wayne Swan, August 2010 :
    Well, we’re getting back into surplus in three years. Come hell or high water.

    Julia Gillard, August 2010:
    The Budget is coming back to surplus, no ifs no buts it will happen.

    Julia Gillard, November 2010:
    The budget will be back in the black, back in surplus in 2012-13 … as promised.

    Wayne Swan, April 2011 :
    We see the surplus in 12-13 as being absolutely fundamental.

    Julia Gillard, April 2011:
    My commitment to a surplus in 2012-13 was a promise made and it will be honoured.

    Wayne Swan, May 2011:
    We’ll be back in the black by 2012/13, as promised.

    Julia Gillard, May 2011:
    We’ll bring the budget to surplus in 2012-13, exactly as promised.

    Wayne Swan, August 2011:
    I believe we will attain those forecasts, coming back to surplus in 2012/13.

    Wayne Swan, August 2011:
    The government remains absolutely committed to delivering our return to surplus as we planned.

    Wayne Swan, February 2012:
    I am determined to produce a surplus in 2012-2013. We have got our colours nailed to the mast.

    Wayne Swan, March 2012:
    Despite the tough global conditions, we remain determined to return the budget to surplus in 2012/13, and we will get there.

    Julia Gillard, November 2012:
    We stand by the predictions, the entries in the Mid-Year Economic and Fiscal Outlook. We stand by the figures and we’re on track to deliver a budget surplus.

    Rudd should have stayed away from this issue and focused on Labor’s achievements.

    “I mean that Labor promised a surplus for the last financial year and delivered a $30bn deficit.

    I guess i asked an unanswerable question. I have never been in govt. How much influence does Swan have over Treasury??

    It seems when Costello was Treasurer the surplus was always underestimated. With Swan the deficit is always bigger than forecast.

    Does the Treasurer get given a set of numbers and then picks the best forecast?? Something is seriously wrong when Treasury is out by such a large number. I do remember reading somewhere that Swan stated that if a worldwide recession occurred he would just let Treasury run the country.

    Jocular ol’ Clivey Palmer has his PUP ads on extremely high rotation. One of the radio ones correctly points out that individuals can spend their own money more wisely than governments, and so they should get to keep more of it.

    He then goes on to promise to “give” you $2,500 “off your tax bill”. He then points out that when circulated through the economy that money will contribute to government revenue via GST. So far, so good.

    Avuncular Clive then makes the totally false statement that (paraphrasing) “that $2500 would only need to be turned over ten times before it will yield the same amount in GST”.

    That is utter crap completely incorrect; here’s why: The first time the $2,500 is spent the GST paid is one eleventh of the original amount, or $227.27. The balance is now $2272.73 which, when spent, will yield GST of $206.61. The remaining balance is now $2,066.12, with a GST of $187.83 and so on. Do this 10 times and you get $1,343.36 in GST and a balance remaining of $1,156.64.

    Clive is either a bullshit artist or an economic ignoramus.

  37. September 3, 2013 4:36 pm

    Clive is both.

    His gilt edged promising may win him plenty of fans amongst those who don’t know better though.

    The Multiplier Effect has been around for some time (as you are obviously aware) however the Effect doesn’t just apply to the original amount but to the spin off trades and services that it affects and/or generates … I’m hopeless at maths (only got a job as a manager ’cause I can work a calculator 🙂 )

    I see CW is getting all bothered about Abbott’s plan to reduce the public service.

    Some time ago I had a job that required me to go to regularly go to Canberra and meet public servants. I found public servants couldn’t meet unless there were at least 4 of them, but usually 6. That’s to meet me, on my own.

    Each senior public servant had a side kick to take notes. They liked to meet during lunch and order plenty of sandwiches. 3/4 of them would be uneaten and quickly whisked away to feed the other public servants, better than supplying your own lunch.

    If the meeting extended beyond 2.45 someone would bring in coffee and tim tams.

    Public servants are process (not outcome) driven.

    Their main objectives in attending a meeting are to-
    1. Eat
    2. Set the time for the next meeting.

    Keep trimming.

    I am deeply disturbed that there is no freedom of speech allowed in this country if you express views that are against the corporocracy, the refusal of all TV stations to air the anti-murdoch ad by getup. This is not the first time that the stations have colluded to prevent the free speech of others.
    The MSM and free market spruikers call for andrew bolt’s freedom to hate-speak, but will collude to prevent the people, citizens from speaking freely.

    l agree with Ricky-Pann on clowns claiming `mandate`, 90% or greater is a mandate, and that means the `team` needs 135-Reps seats, plus Senate to pass. l also say `team` instead of `party` as the teabags are a coalition, Nats being totally unable to rule solo and Libs unlikely to rule solo. *GO*WATERMELON* 😆

    Yes AO, during an election (particularly) it seems reasonable that all points of view should be able to purchase air time.

    Getup’s money is as good as anyone else’s. Collusion among the broadcasters to decline non defamatory advertising is entirely unsatisfactory.

  59. September 4, 2013 10:51 am

    “….the refusal of all TV stations to air the anti-murdoch ad by getup.”

    I think it’s a move that should be applauded. Whilst our freedom of speech might not be perfect GetUp is nothing but a collection of Leftwing Nutcases who would destroy all freedom of speech given the chance. It’s in their DNA.

    Where were they when Conroy and Roxon wanted to pass legislation limiting free speech ?

    On a simple commercial basis if I was running the networks I’d be looking after my regular clients like News Limited and Foxtel and not pandering to the opportunistic GetUp scum who might advertise once every 3 years.

    http://thehoopla.com.au/refugee-stole-latte/

    l agree with Ricky-Pann on clowns claiming `mandate`, 90% or greater is a mandate,

    IMO, there cannot be a mandate claimed when the electorate is so ill informed on policy and costings and there has been such biased campaigning by a MSM, even the ABC. The electorate has to be informed and knowledgeable to make educated choices, something we have not had at all. The coalition’s plan to announce costings after a media blackout is a deliberate hoodwinking of the voters, ensuring they are NOT informed on economic policy, supposedly the most important issue for them.

    Just because abbott claims that the election is a mandate on CC does not make it so for the voter who makes their choice based on many different reasons eg may not like what rudd did to gillard. There can only be a mandate if he puts all information about his policies to the people, allows for scrutiny/fact checking and offers a referendum.

    Where were they when Conroy and Roxon wanted to pass legislation limiting free speech ?

    They were asking for some regulation on a powerful media that is presenting biased opinion as news and fact, trying to change public opinion through lies, misrepresentation and distortion. They never opposed free speech at all, just expected that a powerful media should uphold it’s obligations and duty to the public and that journalists practice their own code of professional ethics.

    It was never about free speech, that was another crude misrepresentation for the gullible to swallow and be distracted from the real issues – corporate monopoly, power and manipulation.

    You haven’t said just how getup was supposedly restricting their free speech, I’m waiting to be enlightened.

    The airwaves are state owned, a licence fee does not give permission as a cartel to oppress the free speech of others. If they accept the advertising $ of some to publish political opinion they should accept it from all who are willing to pay. They are using their market power as an anti democratic, anti market cartel.

    I’m no legal eagle, but I would think that there is a breach of the licence conditions when they act in collusion of market power to restrict others.

    I think conservatives forget that the public is entitled to an opinion and to be active in politics too, especially as their interests and concerns are sidelined and ignored by governments who are supposed to act on their behalf, but are really puppets of corporate power and lobbying.

    I think politics should be taught in high school, too many are absolutely ignorant and apathetic about how they are governed [which suits the majors very well, they use it to their advantage].

    Just ordinary citizens [voters maybe] wanting their voices to be heard. So scary and soooo threatening, must be commies 😆

    are you stupid walrus?

    That was a screenshot of a suggestion for a getup campaign , any member [or even non-member] can put them up for consideration. It looks like the layout of the website has changed since I last looked at getup, the ideas/suggestions used to be run blog style.

    Doesn’t mean it was carried out or that getup acted on it exactly as wished by the suggestee.

    Now give us a screenshot of an actual campaign, which looks like this:

    https://www.getup.org.au/campaigns

    note the separate heading on that page for SUGGESTIONS which then directs people to another page [my bold]

    https://www.getup.org.au/community/campaign-suggestions

    If you’ve got great ideas, CommunityRun.org is the place to go! CommunityRun is a new online organisation that helps you start, run and win your own campaigns.

    GetUp can only take so many campaign ideas at once, which is why we created CommunityRun – a place where you can use your knowledge and passion about an issue and turn it into a great campaign. Your ideas could be big or small, local or national – CommunityRun gives you the tools you need every step of the way to turn issues you’re passionate about into winning campaigns.

    It takes less than 10 minutes to set up a campaign and then the rest is in your hands. CommunityRun campaigns are exactly that – run by you. They are not automatically endorsed by GetUp, but when CommunityRun campaigners spot a great campaign that’s particularly timely, strategic, or popular, we’ll get in touch with you to see how we can help.

    Sounds like a participatory, collective democratic process for ordinary citizens.

    The Coalition will cut the foreign aid budget in order to boost the foreign aid budget…

    Only Joe Hockey could say something like that…


    “We still are committed to the millennium goals but we’ve got to fix our budget first,” Mr Hockey said.

    He added that he could not put a timetable on when the global target could be reached.

    The Coalition emphasised the spending on roads was major part of the budget plan.

    “We are going to cut the growth in foreign aid to pay for necessary infrastructure in Australia,” Mr Hockey said.

    “We need to do this to grow our economy.”

    Only by growing the economy could Australia afford its foreign aid obligations in the future, he added.

    Stupid prick has no idea.

    Needless to say, dirtman wouldn’t have a hope in hell of being able to cope with the qualifications or responsibilities which make up my employment. The fact that he spends his time on the internet trying to impress people, who mostly are repelled by his awkward bitterness, by name dropping & fantasising & giving regular updates on his supposed importance…just goes to show how desperately he craves self affirmation & recognition. Doesn’t ever appear to fool anyone though…and gets very cross when his earnest self promotions are dismissed, picked apart or ridiculed.

    Only the meanest, most pathetic denizens of the internet have a digital history of making threats & alluding to confronting commenters in real life; and sometimes even becoming completely unhinged enough to actually show up at their targets home address. I’ve not witnessed it from anyone except Walter Mitty, repeatedly.

    In fairness, Conroy’s plan to filter the internet was potentially worse. However, it does indicate some intent by the incoming conservatives.

    I have no tolerance for wowserism…and social conservatives are the epitome of that.

    Our governments should get the fuck out of our heads. Adults can decide for themselves what is or isn’t suitable. The onus is also on parents to pay attention to what their children are consuming.
    Censoring the entire population by default is arrogant, paternalist & offensive. I’d have thought liberatrians wouldn’t like it either, no matter which stripe of scum was in control.

    Public servants only meet in packs, I explained my experience a few days ago.

    I was doing some work that involved keeping a bit of the public service in the loop. Normally 6 would turn up to a meeting, each senior public servant brought a note taking side kick, they’d order about 3 times as much lunch as necessary, take the mountain of leftovers out for the rest of the ravenous (but fat) bureaucratic bludgers. About 45 mins after lunch coffee and plates of tim tams would arrive.

    The important part of the meeting was ensuring the next one was scheduled.

    Fat bludgers that wore short sleeved polyester shirts.

    They’ll be lean when there is only 1 of them at that type of meeting (and when they wear cotton shirts)

    She was offended by something and walked out of the office.

    Looking back I think that numbskull “Suppository of Shitheads” had a hand in it. Now he or she has gone too.

    “This is true. I’m one of them.”

    You will be suitably smited tomorrow.

    Then we will burn all the books and impose our iron fists upon you.

    “You will be suitably smited tomorrow.”

    I’m not really all that phased by an Abbott win… It’s just a fkn election, anyone would be forgiven for thinking that it’s the end of the world.

    It’ll probably be good for business confidence (and I guess that’s all that really matters 😯 )

    Well, this is a place for sensitive intelligent types, no dirt shifters, no rabid nut cases. That’s why ‘suppository’ shot through.

    Dianne is therefore welcome to return.

    “It’ll probably be good for business confidence”

    Some Sydney brokers are predicting that a “Wall of Money” will hit the ASX on Monday.

    Personally I don’t buy into that point of view.

    I’ll just stick to the buying principals enunciated by Warren Buffet of …

    *Buy when everyone is fearful, Sell when everyone is rushing in

    and the most important of all

    *Always buy into businesses that are so good that even if a fuckwit starts running the joint even they cant ruin it. Because its absolutely inevitable a fuckwit will be in charge one day.

    Hahahahaha !

    That fuckwit of a rock shifter mentioned moi over at the Café.

    I actually put the post about him above up to get confirmation that he still visits every 5 minutes.

    I know you are going to be reading this you dickhead.

    Guess what………….Seems that your old school buddies remember you as a fuckwit when you went to School in Sydney. Yes I know 3 of them actually and they all knew you as one recalls and I quote ……………

    “ A preposterous dope, full of bullshit, all talk no action, not to be trusted, and with not much of a future” even back then.

    Just so you know I’m not bullshitting the 30th anniversary a few years ago of your graduation was held upstairs at the Lord Dudley Hotel in Paddington in Sydney. 🙂

    Remember ????????

    The person I quoted above could not recall if you attended and then said

    “ That’s most likely because he was so forgettable”

    Nice to know you have not changed.

    ROFLMAO

    As I said, back up the thread, dirtman only impresses himself.

    His embellishments don’t stand up to scrutiny & are so poorly articulated to begin with as to be laughable.

    When parents send a nasty, exaggerating dickhead to an expensive school…a nasty, exaggerating, namedropping, self promoting dickhead comes out the other end.

    Footnote:

    Said dickhead has now confirmed over at the other blog that he did not attend said function at the Lord Dudley.

    He has apparently “moved on”

    Hey Dickhead…………….. 3 of your classmates they being a successful lawyer, banker and property developer don’t fucking miss ya either and one is not surprised at the fantasy world you occupy.

    I like this war of words over the back fence, meanwhile, further afield….

    ‘Russia dismissed Britain as ‘just a small island no one pays any attention to’ last night as a summit of world leaders descended into acrimony over planned military strikes on Syria.

    ‘In an astonishing attack, Vladimir Putin mocked the UK’s size and influence, and boasted that Soviet oligarchs had ‘bought Chelsea’.
