The trash and mud slung by the LNP prior to the election regarding promises, lies and policies before doing exactly the same thing and then bleating about how everything is still the ALP'S fault.
No two ways about it, federal ALP are fuckwits and a rabble, but you have zero legitimacy if you're lying consistently and constantly blaming your predecessors - regardless of their failings.
When your biggest coup of your first year in government is scrapping a revenue raising tax while trying to combat deficit, and literally nothing else, you are failing. Failing abysmally.
It's funny you should say this because everything you said can be applied to the years of Labor madness we just endured.Except change the scrapping of the Carbon Tax to the initiating of a Carbon Tax after promising not to, for the purpose of pleasing the opinion polls ala climate change and raising some revenue to cover the horrendously out of control spending for which we have what to show for?
If you honestly think that the Rudd and Gillard circus that we just lived through is in any way comparable to the Abbott lead government in terms of trash and mud slinging, broken promises, lies, backstabbing, blaming the former government for everything (Howard) and legitimacy (lol minority government) then you are a blind leftist fool. A fucking moronic blind fool.
Abbott scrapped the tax we voted to scrap and you are calling that an abysmal failure. He did what he was voted in to do. That's what politicians are supposed to do.
What we're talking about here is how the public and media have started bashing the shit out of pollys relentlessly in recent years and why. It's not another opportunity for you to push your anti LNP agenda. We get it, you hate them.
I now hate both parties almost equally and if a far right party springs up that is actually going to build something for my money they will get my vote. I don't care any more if it's at the expense of university fees or 2 square km of reef or disability pensions. I want it to not take an entire day to fly to Brisbane or 2.5 hours to cross a city. This shit is crippling business. It's too fucking expensive to operate in this country and if we don't do anything about it soon there will be no jobs for your degree anyway.
