Just after I made this video the story broke that Abbott also wants to ban the CEFC from investing in home solar as well so it’s worse than I thought. This decision is ideology over common sense and it is completely indefensible. It will hurt investment, it will hurt jobs and it makes Australia a laughing stock.
Rumour has it that Barnaby Joyce is extremely angry at Tony Abbott pronouncing a ban on ministers appearing on ABC’s Q&A program AFTER Joyce publicly announce he would appear on the show.
I would have loved to have been a fly on the wall for their conversation because Joyce is someone who knows how to get angry.
One of the thousand or so examples of the Abbott government’s trolling and hypocrisy is the appointment of someone who hates human rights to the Human Rights Commission with the clearly stated purpose of derailing the focus on crazy things like human rights. The hypocrisy really comes to the fore when you look at someone from a group that decries public spending living large on about $400,000 in taxpayer’s money.
My favourite part of this article was when he said “You’d rather I sit in my office all day?”
You really don’t want to know what I want you to do, Timbo.
In an of itself, Tony Abbot’s plan to push christian chaplains into schools and refuse to allow schools to use secular and qualified counselors was incredibly offensive. Where it has ended up is nothing short of a crime. Also, completely predictable. This shit show is the inevitable end point of Abbott’s sick policy.
This is another one of those situations where it feels like the Liberal Party must be having a secret competition among themselves to say the stupidest thing possible on a given topic. That’s the only thing that would explain the rubbish Eric Abetz has been dribbling. I mean, unless he’s nothing more than a bigoted moron.
So Joe Hockey “won” his defamation case against the Sydney Morning Herald but it could cost him more than the settlement.
My second VEDJINA:
I’ve decided to try and make a video every day in July. I’ll try to remember to post them here as well. For the first i talk about the Mafia trying to buy influence with Australian politicians. And my love for laboured acronyms.
