Is Julia Gillard still Prime Minister of Australia? If so, she has just matched Kevin Rudd in the length of her term as PM.

Congratulations Prime Minister.

    Come on caucus members!

    Who will do a Gillard on Gillard?

    Pledge your undying loyalty, then knife her in the back 24 hours later.

  2. Cold-Hands

    The Liberal Party marks this milestone.

    Piers Akerman in his column agrees.

    Sadly, while TLS retains the support of the Unions, she will continue to lead the current kakistocratic regime- and given her policies are slanted to favour her patrons, her incumbency is assured (at least until the election).

    •Stabbed an elected first term male Prime Minister on spurious claims, after telling all and sundry she was not going to challenge the leadership.

    •Dismantled the successful Pacific Solution which led to 30,000 country shoppers now costing us more than $1 billion per year, with $6.6 billion budget blow out. Over 100 thousand dead lured here by the sugar on the table placed there by gillard. Introduced the barbaric Malaysian people swap as a “deterrent”. thrown out later by the High Court as an unlawful and inhumane policy.

    •Vowed not to introduce a carbon [sic] tax before the election and then went ahead anyway to keep a promise to the Greens.

    •Reneged on a deal with an “Independent” to crack down on problem gambling “caused” by poker machines.

    •All but destroyed cattle export industry in knee-jerk reaction to a TV show.

    •$3.2 billion bugget blow out on the NBN roll-out.

    •Blew $70 billion inherited from the previous government to take us into around $150 billion in debt and nearly $200 billion in deficit.

    •Interference and bungling of the Australia Network tender costing taxpayers $2 million.

    There’s just so much more taxpayer money wasted for little or no value. So much more, it’s depressing.

    Yeah, “Congratulations Prime Minister.”, you are the worst ever.

  4. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    Congratulations? Pigs!

    Never elected; utterly and willfully dishonest; outrageously profligate; terminally deaf to the electorate; personally degenerate; a screaching man hater; barely literate and certainly innumerate; the laziest looking, worst presented big asksed slob I have ever seen in a senior position; paid a fortune for demonstrable and complete incompetence – that’s the hideous being occupying the Australian prime minister’s position.

    Fabulous innit?

  5. Tintarella di Luna

    Mick what are you doing in my brain? Eloquent, harsh but fair.

  6. John A

    Mick, score your post +3 for content and +3 again for eloquence, as TdiL said.

  7. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    Gees thanks tintarella di Luna and John A. :)

    It’s remarkable how cold hatred can enthuse one’s quill pen!

  8. Tintarella di Luna

    Am sitting here with old Italian uncle who is totally gobsmacked at his piccola nipotina and her large venom sacs.

  9. JimD

    Fair Go SamuelJ. Gillard routed the dopey truster.
    No Match, Massacre pure and simple. TLS’s outdone every preceding labour leader in the lessons of life under a left govt. Edjukashun’s its’ thing.

  10. jupes

    If Rudd’s government was a “good government that had lost its way”, then what is Gillard’s government?

    A lost government that found itself in the sewer perhaps?

  11. JimD

    ‘But she’s still likely to get back in’.
    Not according to 44 out of 47 and 100 out of 110 posts to TLS Crap in this ams’ Melb and Syd Murdoch.
    Couldn’t read it but apparently the family is one of dogs, as if that’s news. Everyman and his dog’s been trying to tell ém for two years they’ve got the biggest bitch in the country in the family.

  12. Up The Workers!

    Tony Abbott, for the 12th consecutive year, spends his annual leave on call with his local Volunteer Fire Brigade.

    Juliar Gillard’s charitable activities over the last two years have mostly related to enhancing the household income of an unemployed, colour-blind, former bankrupt Shepparton hairdresser, to the tune of $195,000.00 per annum. His household income is now in the region of $500,000.00 per annum.

    Like Tony Abbott, Juliar is an exceedingly modest soul. I have never once heard her boasting to the press about her chosen charitable activities.

  13. blogstrop

    Kakistocratic, kleptocratic, or Sleptocratic?

  14. I note Julia has started her 2013 election campaign early by warning Australia about the dangers of bushfires.

    Maybe it’s time for the BOM to warn Julia about Australia’s open borders, inadequate defence, falling tax revenue, $250 billion debt, high Australian dollar, high labour costs, low labour productivity etc. You know the important things our PM is employed to manage.

    Or, is our PM practising for a TV weather presenter’s job starting next September?. NAH not with a voice like that.

  15. Gab

    Juliar Gillard’s charitable activities

    spans decades, from pro bono work for her unionist boyfriend who ripped off thousands of dollars from companies and widows, to paying legal bills (thank you, dear taxpayer) for a slippery Speaker. And her support and compassion knows no bounds too, just ask the Shagger.

  16. JimD

    Up The Workers!
    Tim Tam might be on a winner/ under a loser here.
    No Nups infers no pre-nup.De Fact oh then meaning 50/50 split? Any wonder Hop A Long’s barak ing for TLS to stay for a bit.

  17. Jazza

    Gab’ Well done–you just need to add how untrustworthy she appears to have been in the AWU/WRA matter, and of course all her lies!
    If there is a God she will get her deserts this year and sooner rather than alter.
    Anyone know why the police are so so so slow w w w w in their work on the said AWU matter and of course the grub Thomson’s case that has stretched long enough for atome or teo to be written about a whole decade of an aspect of our history.?
    I know many people are very angry about both

  18. Rabz

    It’s all that hubristic, fat failure Ruff deserved.

  19. Gab

    Jazza, it was a poor effort. I had to give as it would take a good hour to complete the list, a very depressing task to see how gillard has wasted billions of taxpayers money for no good reason.

    Here’s another example:

    TAXPAYERS have forked out $20 million to the union movement since Labor came to power – including tens of thousands of dollars to fly ACTU executives overseas.

    As for gillard’s “character”, she’s a reprehensible low-life.

  20. Tracey

    For her crowning achievement I can’t see us getting too far into 2013 before the far northern parts of Australia suffer the outbreak of tuberculosis or some other nasty courtesy of our uninvited guests.

  21. Tator

    Jim D,
    Under Australian law, Gillard and Matheson are already considered to be in a defacto relationship, which means if they split up, Matheson can take 50% of Gillards property and her Parliamentary Superannuation. Goody, he probably deserves it more than she does.

  22. Mick Gold Coast QLD

    “Goody, he probably deserves it more than she does.”

    … for sitting on his backside for a couple of years reading the form guide and quaffing beers – doing no direct damage to anyone.

    You’re right you know.

  23. Bruce

    The Tele has this article today:

    Prime Minister Julia Gillard shares her plan to win back voters

    Ho hum … until you read the comments. Oh yes ordinary voters are not, repeat not happy.

    Yes please Julia, I would pay good money for you to call an election tomorrow. Oh yes yes yes please Ms Gillard, be a sweetie and do the right thing. Then take a long long holiday someplace nice like Pyongyang, and take Swannie, Emo and the rest of your front bench with you too.

  24. candy

    She’s trying really hard to win people over, but I can’t see she’ll ever be as popular as a PM as kevin Rudd.

  25. jupes

    Matheson can take 50% of Gillards property and her Parliamentary Superannuation.

    That’s actually incorrect as far as the super goes.

    He is entitled to 50% of the super she earned while they were together. For example, if they were together for say, six years, and she retires in 2013 – which gives her 15 years worth of super, Tim is entitled to three years worth of the super and Gillard is entitled to 12 years worth.

    Hardly a bargain for being associated with, let alone living, the lying slapper.

  26. blogstrop

    Oh, really! Please save us from this preferred PM bullsheise which is totally irrelevant in an election, let alone in any year’s sideshow of polls.

  27. candy

    She’s trying to make herself warm and fuzzy and popular, blogstrop.

  28. candy

    Got herself photographed next to the pooch, just like k.Rudd used to do with his pets.

  29. Alice

    I noticed the pooch shot today Candy.
    All it told me was “I love pooches better than peopls’

  30. Alice

    esp after what they did to single mothers.

  31. Tintarella di Luna

    Ms Gillard was photographed with her family and bestest friend Reuben, there’s a good reason why Reuben was chosen.

  32. candy

    I agree with you Alice, also they should put the New Start up a bit too. They seem out of touch with the disadvantatged. (apart from the Disability which is the biggest welfare rort ever in my opinion).

  33. Alice

    I agree with you as well, Candy. They are completely out of touch with the real disadvantaged and now wonder why they have so many disabled?

  34. candy

    that’s it in a nutshell, Alice.

  35. Alice

    Not only that Candy if you really are mentally ill – you need to move to the country to get decent care.You will find respite care in mental hospitals still.
    If you are unfortunate enough to live in Sydney and be mentally ill – you will be drugged and discharged on to the streets as soon as possible – like in a day or two. They sold Callan Park and the other mental care facilities to unit developers ages ago.

  36. candy

    I know, Alice, it’s a worsening problem too with young poeple and illicit drug use leading to schizophrenia and what have you.

  37. Tracey

    I’d bet money (and I’m probably about to be made redundant) that the only time she’s ever inflicted her filthy presence on that poor bloody dog has been when there was a tame laptop media photographer present.

  38. Alice

    A lot of families have one Candy. I know two elderly ladies who have always worked hard with their huisbands who now have problem drug damaged children on their hands.

    I dont know what I would do if it was me (Ive already done it – nagged, harassed and warned my only son against drugs since he was ten!! He has been well and truly warned! I think he got the fear of god put in him by me and fortunately being an only child and the sort of kid who was always happy to follow orders – all has been fine (thank goodness he was more willing to follow orders than me my mother tells me!).

    The Mums with the problem children have more than three children each.
    You know – this dopr / drug stuff wasnt around in the 50s and its destroyed many a family since then or done a lot of damage.

    My son tells me when he goes out “mum – its not like when you were young and you had a disco ball and a nice time – there are really out of it guys out there doing “fight dancing” and fighting and falling all over the dance floor and just looking for fights.”

    I did have to dispel some of his lovely thoughts and say there were some nutcases out there when I was young and disco dancing too.

    I told him “only your grandmother really had no mad people to encounter in the dating scene because it was Town hall dances and they were all organised and no alcohol and they did dances like “The Pride of Erin”.

    Who know Candy? Maybe trouble makers were there then as well?

    Its a tough world now – even trying meet people and date is fraught with danger for young people.

  39. Alice

    The dog probably has a hired pet walker and feeder Tracey.

  40. Unfortunately, Samuel, that mendacious twit still is Prime Minister and is likely to remain so as long as the Constitution will permit her.

    There is nobody they could seriously replace her with whom Tony Abbott would not tear to shreds in a couple of weeks, and the only Cabinet Minister more politically correct than she is (i.e. Wong) sits in the Senate. It’s been done (PM in the Senate) before, IIRC, but it would look too much like an anti-Abbott setup and the public might even deal Labor a harsher thrashing for it.

    Labor’s working-class base, to the extent that it still exists, isn’t anywhere near as tolerant as the intelligentsia, but isn’t so mindless that you can play it for a complete fool – having an Asian lesbian rammed down their throats as PM, especially if it looks like a political tactic to disarm a Catholic opposition leader, might be more than they can swallow.

  41. Septimus

    The Pope and Gillard are on the same stage in a Sydney Stadium in front of a huge crowd.
    The Pope leans towards Gillard and says, “Do you know that with one little wave of my hand I can make every person in this crowd go wild with joy? This joy will not be a momentary display, but will go deep into their hearts and they’ll forever speak of this day and rejoice!”
    Gillard replied, “I seriously doubt that! With one little wave of your hand? Show me!” So the Pope backhanded her and knocked her off the stage!
    AND THE CROWD ROARED & CHEERED WILDLY and there was happiness throughout the land!
    Kind of brings a tear to your eye, doesn’t it?

    did you catch Kevni on the Drum tonight????

    I think it is now official, the ALP think that we are morons!

  44. Then take a long long holiday someplace nice like Pyongyang, and take Swannie, Emo and the rest of your front bench with you too.

    Well we could learn something about border security from them.
