Why is Bill Shorten so Useless?
***A SPECIAL GUTTER TRASH INVESTIGATIVE REPORT RESEARCH PROBE***
Why is Bill Shorten so excruciatingly useless?
He’s not just dull, he’s a crashing bore and completely ineffectual as Federal Opposition Leader.
To uncover the troof, the Gutter Trash Research Institute commissioned this special report.
A mere four months have passed since the Coalition won government and since then the Abbott government has left a trail of unmitigated disasters.
In a matter of weeks, Prime Minister Abbott and Minister for Schwarzkopf Julia Bishop managed to completely destroy the relationship Australia had, until that point, enjoyed with our important trading partner Indonesia. A relationship which pundits are now saying could take 14 years to resurrect.
We’ve witnessed the heinous reality of “Operation Sovereign Borders” – a euphemistic smokescreen patriotic bile that has failed to stem the flow of boat people now also faltering thanks to Indonesia’s decision to no longer cooperate with the program.
Today, reports are emerging that the Abbott government plans to abandon the UNHCR asylum seeker conventions and obligations altogether.
In a week where the Abbott government capitulated on its outrageous plans to abandon the extensive Gonski Education Reforms all Bill Shorten could do was mutter something about parents and teachers being “disappointed” and something about a unity ticket.
The Abbott government now intends to wind back gambling reforms, a move that aims to please its largest donators.
But where’s the outrage from the Opposition?
I’ll tell you where it is.
As @spacekiddete said on twitter this morning, “Bill Shorten can’t even feign interest, let alone outrage.”
Memo to Bill Shorten:
It’s time to start leading or fuck off.
