Coming soon to Australian shores

The Hon. Wayne Swan was and will always be Australia’s best ever treasurer.  He is probably also the best Treasurer/Finance Minister planet earth is likely to ever see.

Sadly though for Australia and the Australian economy, Mr Swan is no longer Treasurer.  But he is running for the Presidency of the Australian Labor Party.  And according to Troy Bramston:

Mr Swan says he has the “experience, time and conviction” to be president and has made the battle against inequality his focus. He attacked banks, multinational firms and the media — “the Murdoch press” — who “must be defeated”.

He aligns himself with radical left US politician Bernie Sanders.

There you have it.  Bernie Sanders.  Like music to the inner city lefty ears.

Just consider this.  In February 2017,  in a debate on Obamare and the US health system, Senator Sanders was asked about the costs and regulatory burdens for small business.  And you know what Senator Sanders told the small business person?  Words to the effect of drop dead.

This is the same Senator Sanders who, like the Hon Swan, believes that the purpose of business is to generate taxes for government and work for public service regulatory agencies.

Watch for yourself here.  Or if you don’t have time while you are busy generating tax for the government, wait for a Labor Government to see the impacts directly for yourself.

    and conviction

    One can only hope

    Senator Sanders should stick to making finger lickin’ chicken. And Wayne Swan should persist with his long-term psychotherapy.

    Comrade Sanders , I still wonder what crime the DNC held over his head to make him rapidly withdraw from the nomination and leave the field open to hilarity to lose the election ? (She did lose you know , just ask her, she will tell you, Over and over and over ). Must be serious to make the u.n.politburo allow him to step down and throw their plans to subvert the USA with him as president. Any Cats have a theory ? Reading Trump is lowering the boom on FBI traitors Demands information from DOJ comrades , mueller involved too it seems , Trump gave them the rope and the fools are hanging themselves ,like all good lefties do. Advice to hilarity and obama ,keep quiet keep your heads down ,don’t draw attention or you will join the cavalcade of crooks about to be exposed and punished severely .

    Wayne Goosesteen is a great loss to the Nambour TAFE.

    Swannie is an out and proud Fabian so that’s not at all surprising.
    Shorten, Bowen, Leigh and Plibs all are too.
    Keep wearing those sheepskins people, I’m sure they’ll hide your true nature.

    Swan is a damn zombie, can’t kill the fuckers unless it’s a head shot

    Maybe he wasn’t exactly the best treasurer in history. But he surely holds the record for announcing budget surpluses. I personally counted 1348.

    But he surely holds the record for announcing budget surpluses. I personally counted 1348.

    Morristeen is clearly jealous of that record.

    Labor /green FOOLED, and hoist on it’s own petard!
    It seems that the Coalition may have pulled off a master stroke with the 2018 Budget.
    I note that the FIRST measure announced for the 2018 budget was the reduction of Business tax rate from 30% to 25%; confident that Labor/greens would campaign vigorously against this.
    Having established that Labour would go all out to ‘sabotage’ this measure, the rest of the budget was carefully crafted to assist the non-business taxpayer, and notwithstanding some excellent infrastructure, health and education increases , the Coalition could still claim inroads into the Labor Deficit.
    Inevitably, and as planned /foretold, Labor/ green thwarted the Business tax relief measures.
    NOW the coalition could say, “ well, we tried to help Business and encourage investment, reduce unemployment, and create jobs, but now Labor green have scuttled that”.
    Seems to me that now the Coalition can look forward to a greater deficit reduction by some $60 billion as Labor/ green is locked into supporting the rest of the budget.
    Neat Eh?

    How can I characterise Swanee?
    Charismatic
    Unparalleled
    Nice
    Talented.
    I like acronyms.

  11. wal1957

    Not a word I like to use Ted.
    However it is appropriate, so you are forgiven.

  12. Singleton Engineer

    Hi, Wal.

    Try speaking Ted’s name out loud.

    Another word not in general polite usage, but at least not directed at anybody else.

  13. Amadeus

    Swanee, Queensland’s gift to the nation.
    Unparalleled career after failing in key disciplines of miming and blackboard scratching at Nambour TAFE.
    The most qualified economist and Treasurer Australia ever produced…indeed, he was our national gift to the world. Only a Nobel Prize in Economics was missing from the bookshelf in Canberra.
    A genius, an economic clairvoyant, a master with numbers.
    Oooooops, I seem to have been drinking Smirnov – thought it was Chinese tea…bugger. Brain is swirling…again….aaaahhhhgggghhh

  14. Shy Ted

    And the guernsey goes to Singleton Engineer. First man in history to understand the joke behind the name. Best said out loud several times. Like Mrs Ted does.

    Why can’t we ever rid ourselves of these fools and losers?

    The fact that someone like Swan can survive his appalling failures and survive to potentially rise again is a shocking indictment of politics in Australia. We are truly ruined.

  16. Bruce in WA

    The Goose could rise again?

    Truly it is said, Australia would be screwed, blued and tattooed.

    Two words.
    Career politicians.

    Good for nothing else, or just good for nothing.

    Wayne Goosesteen is a great loss to the Nambour TAFE.

    Wayne Goosesteen was out of his depth even there.

    It is said that: “Those who are too stupid to learn from their mistakes, are condemned to repeat them.”

    The A.L.P. – the world’s only political Party too dumb to be able to spell their own Party name correctly; the world’s only political Party so dumb that it accepts intellectual, policy and meteorological advice from the pea-brained, soap-phobic, mung-beaners of the Brown Movement, looks likely to instal as their next Federal President, the bloke so comically innumerate that he couldn’t tell the difference between red ink and black ink; between the six budget surpluses he promised and the six consecutive massive deficits he delivered.

    Speaking of “The Goose’s” convictions, I wonder whether he plans to take up lodgings at some future date in the “A.L.P. Presidential Suite” at Cooma Prison, that former A.L.P. Federal President, Mike Williamson currently has a firm 7-year lease on? With Milton “The Molester” Orkopoulos, Dishonest Eddie” Obeid and Dishonest Eddie’s Left Testicle as close neighbours, it will be like a regular A.L.P. Caucus session – only the bars in this instance, won’t be the Parliamentary Bars they were used to draining at taxpayers’ expense on the outside.

    I wonder if the A.L.P. sells their own brand of “Soap-On-A-Rope” to the Party Bigwigs these days?

    The Party that showers together, glowers together!

    Mr Swan says he has the “experience, time and conviction” to be president and has made the battle against inequality his focus. He attacked banks, multinational firms and the media — “the Murdoch press” — who “must be defeated”.

    There’s a lot not to like about the Murdoch press, but “must be defeated”?

    Sounds like a cleat call to destroy by any mean necessary all media that aren’t proxy arms of the Labor Party.

    To all intents and purposes, it means that only propaganda arms of the Labor Party are allowed. Pravda writ large.
