    Posted: 01 Jul 2022 at 1:52pm
Here we go - I'm going to put myself out on a limb. By Melb Cup Day Tuesday 1st November 2022 this ALP Govt will be well & truly on the nose. Elbow & his underlings will be "duckin & weavin" - trying to put out the spot fires everywhere. 

I've called it the "Elbow Gasometer" because Elbow is full of it. And the Teals were as well - until they blew up all those balloons pre-election. Being "on-the nose" is a rating of 30 or less

So our starting point is a 100 on the Elbow Gasometer on Election Night.  I will update & give a virtual Gasometer value every few weeks - or when something dramatic occurs to cause Elbow to pass more gas than he normally does.

Todays Value - 86

Maybe you could start a thread with a poll in it on the ''Gasometer's'' most appropriate place to reside.

Absolutely - sure does Rhino !

However the TBV Gasometer Panel (TBV GP) score it at the end of each day is the figure that is used.

Before asking - the Panel consists of Hello Sunshine, Stayer, Macca (life member privilege) , Baghdad & myself

Hope that clarifies it for you

Tell Anthony  - not me - he's apparently running the show - from overseas. Whilst ever he "encourages" wage growth in-line with inflation , & oversees an economy that seems ok with price hikes everywhere - guess what - you will still get rampant inflation. Very poor messaging from Anthony early days unfortunately. Left Jim carrying the can & took off. 

He seems to have a problem accepting you need a lot of hurt before things will get into balance. Easier to put your head in the sand - whist spend, spend , spend.................

That's the third time I've heard Jim say the same thing after the rate rise. "We knew it was coming - but that doesn't make it any more palatable for those doing it tough"

Tell us something we don't know Jim. What are you doing about it ? How are your policies helping ? What are you doing to change things up a bit ?

If only you understood RBA is independent…

Yeah, I know the last 2 years RBA performance would indicate otherwise……..

No I get that. However surely the RBA reacts to what it sees - & what it see's is obviously influenced by local & international forces / policies. I mean if you are saying we cannot influence inflation to some point  - both up & down - we may as well give up.

Can't believe people actually question your impartiality one one. Never seen a fairer reflection of the current state of affairs. Your ability to judge reasonably and responsibly is second to none. As Allan would say, "wonderful young man"!
