Election defeat could finish the LNP for good
The stage is set for a D-D (delusion and drama) election on Saturday July 2nd .
It’s going to be a fun-thrilled ride, with Malcolm Turnbull successfully securing the trigger for the election after ‘those opposite’ refused to acquiesce to his royal demands for a building a construction industry watchdog to be reinstated to watch over how buildings are assembled by tradies and the like (or something like that).
Oddly enough, ‘the rest of Australia’ couldn’t really see what all the fuss was about, unless you were someone with an unhealthy obsession with Unions, but it was .
However the scrag fighting has already begun, with our well-paid elected representatives accusing each other of lies, deception and fraud. And that’s just within the LNP.
Once the golden boy of Australian politics, the member for Goldman Sachs, has in the space of a few short months, led his party to an election winning lead of 50-50 by most pollsters.
Mr Turnbull will be campaigning on the popular track record of slashing funding to the ABC and SBS, slashing funding for State schools and hospitals, slashing Medicare entitlements, abandoning action on climate change and investments in renewable energy, whilst pouring millions into funding a so-called ‘windfarm commissioner’ and walking away from marriage equality.
One could easily be forgiven that the LNP is a party that simply hates the public.
Unless of course, you’re white, middle class, wealthy, and subscribe to conservative right-wing religious dogma.
You see, only the Jesus-o-fascists know what’s good for Australia and they’re going to make you realise this whether you like it or not. Believe them when they say ‘this is going to hurt me a lot more than it’s going to hurt you.’
They really have your best interests at heart.
The strength of their convictions of course, lies in the fact that the Prime Minister himself is so convinced of Australia’s economic future that he invests his wealth offshore.
That’s confidence that money, quite literally, can’t buy.
Next week, the so-called Treasurer Scott ‘ScoMo’ Morrison, will hand down his first ever Budget, which will no doubt be a hilarious affair – stay tuned for our annual Gutter Trash Budget Night Bingo drinking game (fun for the whole family).
Mr Morrison will no doubt be hoping to follow in the successful steps of his predecessor ‘smokin’ Joe Hockey who predicated his 2014 Budget on the premise of a so-called ‘Budget emergency;’ a national state of crisis that seems to have miraculously dissipated in the last 18 months.
One thing that’s clear is that Morrison will be hung out to dry if his Budget turns out be as well-received as his predecessor’s. If it fails to resonate with voters, and the polls continue to move in Labor’s favour, Talcum may soon regret his ‘mastermind’ decision to trigger an election for July 2 and then the infighting will really begin.
The right-wing conservative ratbags will tear each other apart; a prospect that is absolutely delicious.
We live in interesting times.
