I thought they would be running with that UnAustralian, left wing, foul mouthed, racist, hypocritical parasite, Tarneen Onus-Williams, now that she's been sacked from her Government funded "jobs" at the Koorie Youth Council and the Aboriginal Interim Treaty Working Group ... oh wait, it's Victoria, she won't be sacked, she'll be getting a pay rise, and be their Young Australian of the Year nominee! Thumbs Up

Is it worse then Big Joe of the 'age og entitlement is over' statement quitting parliament after being dumped as treasurer, costing the tax payer money for a needless by-election then double dipping his way into a 6 figure salary to go to cocktail parties.

Question Doc, where would we be in Australia without the Labor party? I doubt your lot would have introduced a fair minimum wage, holiday sick leave and public holiday entitlements, Medicare, compulsory superannuation, public education or even the 40 hour week.

Please, try not to be naive Afros.Ermm

Those gigs are bipartisan ... ALP or LNP, it doesn't matter, there have been just as many "embarrassments" hidden in cushy jobs on both sides of the divide, just depends who's turn it is!

So the "highly principled" Bullgelati Bill is showing his colours again ... 

Pro-Adani before the QLD election ... 

Silent on Adani when Anastasia is lying her way back into power ... 

Anti-Adani as soon as his Pommie Mate Feeney fcuks up and he looks like losing another seat to the Greens ...

Bullgelati Bill, the LNP's "Great White Hope"!LOL

Yes - not very smart . Average folk in the suburbs are sick to death of this sort of stuff. Just says to me this bloke has no idea what "real" issues are. Even worse , it will cost him more votes than he gets - which just makes him look like a bigger dope than he obviously already is.

No reputable economist, businessperson or bank has ever thought the Adanai mine was a good idea. It's a complete mystery to me that it has got this far or that politicians have supported it. I smell a rat.Dead

this article may explain, 


Rise of India demands ‘new economic strategy’A report recommending a new national economic strategy towards India, written by former Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade head Peter Varghese, will be handed to the Turnbull government in March.

Mr Varghese will argue that Australia cannot afford to ignore the economic transformation under way in India.

He will offer three compelling rationales for this, the first being the sheer scale of the Indian economic transformation.

Measured by purchasing power parity, India is the world’s third largest economy. Over the past 20 years, the share of its economy devoted to international trade has risen from 13 per cent to 40 per cent. Over a similar ­period, it has seen nearly a 20 per cent increase in foreign direct ­investment each year. Hundreds of millions of Indians are about to urbanise.

The second reason, Mr Varghese will argue, is that so much of the Australian economy is complementary to India’s economy, which needs to provide technical training in coming ­decades to 400 million people.

And the third reason for embracing the Indian economy is the need for Australia to diversify its risk. Two nations, China and Japan, currently account for 40 per cent of our exports.

Rajiv Kumar, the vice-chairman of Indian government think tank NITI, has been part of the economics reference group providing Indian input into the ­Varghese study.Mr Kumar, who has cabinet rank in the Indian government, told The Australian he had recommended that Australia adopt a national strategy centred on five key Indian states.

However, it is likely that the Varghese strategy will recommend a focus on double that number of Indian states.

It will also recommend a ­strategic emphasis on sectors where Australia is naturally placed to do well in India, such as education, agribusiness, resources and ­energy, and tourism.

The Varghese strategy will argue that India’s economic transformation is driven by huge structural factors such as urbanisation, the move from an informal economy to a formal economy, the demographics of a young population, and the investment in infrastructure, among others.

Although the Varghese strategy document will be a report to government, rather than a report by government, it was commissioned by Malcolm Turnbull and senior cabinet ministers are believed to be highly favourable to engaging the proposed new Indian strategy.

Mr Kumar, in a lengthy interview in his New Delhi office, nominated increasing two-way investment as a key to moving the economic relationship forward.

While he is very pro-­Australian and believes New Delhi and Canberra should make the relationship a high priority, Mr Kumar has one serious criticism to make of Australian policy, concerning the treatment of the proposed Adani coalmine in Queensland.

“Some of the stuff I’ve seen happening to Adani is not very pretty,” Mr Kumar said.

“The rules of the road should be clear in advance: either coalmining is allowed or it isn’t.”

Mr Kumar called for a high ­degree of transparency in Australian rules around such investments, and said they “should be visibly non-discriminatory towards India vis-a-vis Chinese or Japanese companies”.

“When Chinese companies want to come in, the government arranges a quiet reception,” he said.Mr Kumar also acknowledged the shortcomings of India’s own investment regulations and said he supported his own government reviewing these.

I think everyone saw the irony of Shanghai Sam's protector, Bullgelati Bill, pushing for a Federal "integrity" commission the other day (he would need Whale's help to spell it!), and it seems that the sharks are circling now! ... Go Albo!!!Dead

When that other sour faced hypocritical biatch is more popular than you, the writing is well and truly chiseled on the wall ... Embarrassed
 

Newspoll gives Albanese room to manoeuvre


Labor frontbencher Anthony Albanese is better placed than Bill Shorten to secure votes away from the Coalition at the next election, according to backers inside the party.

Responding to yesterday’s Newspoll showing Mr Albanese was twice as popular as Bill Shorten among Liberal and Nat­ional voters, supporters of the left-wing MP said Australians respected him even if they didn’t agree with his policy positions.

“Anthony’s greatest strength is he is Anthony. People understand that when he says something, that’s what he thinks,” a Labor MP told The Australian.

The poll, published in yesterday’s The Australian, suggested almost half of voters would prefer someone other than Mr Shorten to lead the Labor Party, with Mr Albanese and deputy Labor leader Tanya Plibersek both more popular with voters than Mr Shorten.

Labor sources said there was no threat to Mr Shorten’s leadership, but “warning signs” were beginning to emerge.

Think Albo is worth a shot for the ALP. Has a lot more credibility than Shorten

Why do people prefer Albanese over Shorten? Because he talks common? Student politician, party hack, politician at 33- even Shorten has more real world life experience than Albo.

Hands up who enjoyed the performance of the Dual Citizen Susan Lamb - another iron clad, "don't worry, we do our checks", ALP Aussie/Pom.Clown

Essentially she just stood up in front of the Nation and said, I'm not telling this story to get sympathy, I'm crying on prime time TV to get sympathy! ... well it nearly worked for Jackie Lamb(ie) so I thought I'd give it a crack, I'm gone anyway!

Sorry darl', your a dual citizen, time to piss off, tell your story walking.

No wonder her mother abandoned her ... Sheeeesh what a typical, whinging, entitled, left wing, victim class whiner she is ... I suppose with Bullgelati Bill in charge, and his propensity to back a loser, we should have seen anything but a remorseful acknowledgement, and exit coming ... well it's never their fault!!! Cry
