    Look, I’m sorry, but I simply can’t take the guy seriously anymore.

    BTW, how’s the repeal of the Carbon Dioxide and Mining taxes going, Tone – is that a very fat bastard I see looming on the horizon?

    I thought Jo Gullett was the only Australian to actually land on the beaches on D-Day.

    Democracy and freedom don’t happen without freedom of speech Tony.

    He going to lower tax by introducing a paid parental leave scheme that…er um tut, raises tax on companies with an after tax turnover above $5 million per annum.

    Is he fucked in the head or what?

  6. Gab

    Good Lord, he’s still taking about his government lowering taxes when he’s increased taxes both at company and personal levels. You have no credibility left, Abbott.

  7. Mark

    Im sorry MartinG – is that going to effect you ? The term TA used was to lower the overall tax burden. If the greens and labor (not just the fat bastard Rabz) would pass the abolition of the carbon and mining taxes you would see this

  8. Rabz

    Mark – that fat bastard has four senators in the new senate. He is also committed to obstructing the Government’s legislative agenda.

    Hence Lord Wentworth’s restaurant creosoting the other evening.

    What has D-Day got to do with his alleged political agenda?

    What a weird video.

    I agree – it was very poorly advised to tack on the “Australia is open for business” line… the message should have been all about the Diggers and their sacrifice and nothing about politics or business to take away from that message…

    But I guess when you have pissed all over their legacy who gives a stuff right./

  11. C.L.

    That’s the true link, Max, you’re right.

    The D-Day Diggers risked their lives for, inter alia, journalists not being jailed and show trials not being held. But the Liberal Party supports both.

    “I thought Jo Gullett was the only Australian to actually land on the beaches on D-Day.

    The general idea of the Australians providing air support was not to land on the beaches.

  13. “There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    The man who is wrong still retains some respect for truth, if only by accepting the responsibility of choice.

    But the man in the middle is the knave who blanks out the truth in order to pretend that no choice or values exist, who is willing to sit out the course of any battle, willing to cash in on the blood of the innocent or to crawl on his belly to the guilty, who dispenses justice by condemning both the robber and the robbed to jail, who solves conflicts by ordering the thinker and the fool to meet each other halfway.

    In any compromise between food and poison, it is only death that can win. In any compromise between good and evil, it is only evil that can profit.”

    ― Ayn Rand, Atlas Shrugged

  14. I care not whether Abbott is weak or stupid; it makes no difference. If Australia is to have a real opportunity to reach its potential and to fulfil its promise, he must be removed.

    If you don’t like the Rhodes Scholar, stand against him.

    I regard the recent Budget as the most politically practical that could have been brought forward.

    Well, goody for you. Personally, I thought the budget sucked arse.

    Tony Abbott could say anything now and be massacred. Anyone will take offence to anything he says right now. The same way the Right talked about Ms Gillard, actually …

    D Day might mean double dissolution in a funny kind of way, wonder if there’s black humour there?

  18. Fisky

    Wow, nicely scripted, Peta Credlin! Too bad there wasn’t time to chuck in a maternity leave reference.

  19. Mr Skeletor

    Charlie Pickering agrees with you all.

    Can’t believe even Tubbsy Milne had a crack at him about this!

    The Tubbster would not have liked D-Day – there was no Environmental Impact Study, no community consultation, no planning permission, the habitat of migratory birds was just trampled wantonly, the participants consumed colossal amounts of fossil fuels, made no attempt to incorporate more environmentally responsible practices, and to top it off, exploded lots of toxic chemicals and simply sprayed around literally millions of pellets of waste lead – lead!! without anything resembling a recovery, recycling and remediation plan.

    Plus not only were sensitive beach and clifftop ecosystems thoughtlessly destroyed, subsequent battles through the fields and hedgerows of Normandy badly degraded these micro-habitats, with no thought of the damage to the local biota.

    Rhodes Scholar!

    Fuck me I got a first and have been a state rep. Look I’m impressed by Abbott but this particular argument from authority doesn’t work on me. Pick another one – i.e. he is popular and middle Australia likes him.

    It is probably the best one. Quite frankly I’m worried about who else might lead the LNP.

  22. James in Melbourne

    My favourite story of the Australian presence on D-Day: Montgomery saying to his long-time chief of staff, Major-General Freddie de Guingand, just before the balloon went up, that at least if it went pear-shaped he would know that they had planned it as well as they could and that they had everything with them that they possibly needed – to which de Guingand replied, “My God, I wish we had the 9th Australian Division with us this morning!”

    A couple of Menzies House persona on here today defending Tony and his Budget (or maybe they’re from PM & C).

    No Mark a company tax on big business will definitely have no effect on my share portfolio, prices I pay in the supermarket and servo, or on the country’s competitiveness, because it comes from magic big company money that would otherwise be used for lighting cigars, just ask the Greens

  26. Frederic

    Rickw firstly they are “little people” secondly how dare you accusing them of being like Tony Abbott

    I can accept not everyone likes all LDP policy, but I have been called a socialist for believing in individual sovereignty. I have been told free speech isn’t sacred, we need “balance!”…

    I am suspecting some of them are not even conservatives.

    Yes and I was recently denounced as a leftist over at bloody Bolt’s. :x

    The shame.

  29. Gab

    Yes and I was recently denounced as a leftist over at bloody Bolt’s.

    As was I and I was defending and promoting the LDP’s budget and pointing out to Bolt that David Leyonhjelm is not an anarchist!

  30. .

    What kind of anarchist believes in a punitive tax rate of 20% and school vocuhers!

  31. Plus not only were sensitive beach and clifftop ecosystems thoughtlessly destroyed, subsequent battles through the fields and hedgerows of Normandy badly degraded these micro-habitats, with no thought of the damage to the local biota.

    Wow, I’ve seen Saving Private Ryan, but I had no idea D-Day was so bad. Tom Hanks worrying his sorry arse and ignoring da ‘nvironment is a ecocidal maniac, I tells ya!!!

  32. EB

    The LDP truly isn’t welcome at Bolt’s blog. Bolt occasionally throws a few bones to cravenly lure them towards him before selling LNP benefits.

    I can’t tell you how many LDP positive posts I’ve attempted to put over there that never see the light of day. And I’m not talking posting in deadzone times where nothing gets up. Plenty of posts will go up around the same time stamp as mine, but mine, short and sweet without any dubious content go missing.

  33. .

    Bolt hates freedom. He wants to be a slave.

    OK, what would David L have said instead? Open Borders and Legalise Drugs?
    That would impress the diggers.

    Mark

    Im sorry MartinG – is that going to effect you ?

    Higher company tax = Lower superannuation returns. Removing other taxes doesn’t justify the stupid introduction of others nor does it justify the increased cost of trying to replace a key member of staff with a temporary equally skilled employee even if such a thing exists. Of course only an economic illiterate would think of introducing a tax that encourages small companies to stay small, middle sized companies to become small and large companies to move offshore. It’s also an insult to all low paid workers and if you are not satisfied with that it’s another reason companies will be reluctant promote young women to key positions.

    You ask does it effect me? I would think bad policy effects everyone.

    We shall fight on the beaches in lycra, we shall fight on the landing grounds of carbon tax, we shall fight in the fields with wide-body tanks (and Gina) against mining tax and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills for no tax increases; we shall never surrender!

    (Never before in the field of political bullshit, has so much of a whopper WW2 analogy been made for so few takers.)

    And no bike helmets Blogstrop. Surly that would impress the Diggers. Man how did we get such loopies into the Senate?
