Jobs jobs jobs

Below is a screenshot of a LinkedIn post by Prime Minister, the Hon. Scott Morrison.  In it he says:

That’s why I’ve personally committed to deliver 1.25 million new jobs over the next 5 years.

Honestly.  Do people really believe this stuff and do politicians really believe that people actually believe this stuff?

There is that old saying, better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you are a fool than to open it and prove it.

The only “jobs” PrimScoMo can guarantee to deliver are Commonwealth public servant jobs and Liberal Party (organisation) jobs.  In the case of the public servant jobs, it is practically guaranteed that those jobs are created at the expense of private sector jobs.

This sophomoric semantic scheme in the use of “deliver” is just pathetic.  Why does he not just commit to deliver sunlight in the morning and wetness in the water.  Perhaps he can bring out his former flatmate Stuart Robert to opine on how bright the sunlight is an how wet the wetness is.

Just pathetic.

At the next election, we have 2 major parties running.  One thinks electorate is stupid.  The other thinks the electorate is a cash cow to fund their hair brained schemes.

Bonus points for any Cat who can work out which party is which.

    So who is going to employ people? Businesses are struggling to pay services bills and deal with the strangling red tape. Consumers have less disposable income as the power and other bills cut into income.This in turn is depressing retail, entertainment etc. I counted 23 vacant shops in the St Kilda shopping precinct last week. Wake-up Libs, jobs don’t grow on trees.

    The appearance of a difference is simply an illusion.
    The Uniparty will take the election creating the illusion that the result is so close that it must match the radical Marxism of the Green Blob in order to stay in power.
    In the meantime, the minor parties will supply the entertainment, as the court jesters.
    This farce that suggesting there is competition is a ruse.
    Who will wake the voters?

  3. The BigBlueCat

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak and to remove all doubt.

    Not that I’m quibbling …

    And how does ScoMo “personally commit” to delivering 1.25 million jobs? If he misses the target, then what?

    At the next election, we have 2 major parties running. Both think the electorate is stupid. Both think the electorate is a cash cow to fund their hair brained schemes.

    There, fixed it.

    TAFKAS,

    what’s also pathetic are the federal government ads on radio, saying the government is delivering a “fairer tax system” for all Australians. Then they go on to say they are committed to stopping corporates “avoiding” tax, and they will deliver lower….etc etc. Committed?

    Tax minimisation is everyone’s right, within the law and within the international tax treaties. But I though that tax avoidance was against the law? And when has the federal government not been committed to upholding the tax laws?

    So the federal government is telling Australians it will uphold the existing tax laws against corporates who avoid tax? Will this persuade anyone to vote for them??

    And then we have the federal government radio and television ads implying that the energy retailers are a problem and a (part) cause of massive rises in energy costs. Dont get me started on that exercise in deception.

  5. I wonder if our governments have thought that the reason there are too few jobs is because of government?
    Dear Prime Minister Morrison – shit or get off the dunny.

  6. struth

    He reckons he’s delivered 5 million new jobs over five years.

    Where the hell does he pull that crap from?

    Businesses are going tits up everywhere.

    And by the way, his mob’s brought in a million third world shit in nearly that five year time frame , so who’s seeing the benefit?
    Seeing most are tax parasites, those million people are being paid by who?

  7. struth

    one million over five years………………….

  8. Tel

    Honestly. Do people really believe this stuff and do politicians really believe that people actually believe this stuff?

    Hail Mary, mother of God … in a few months I will face an election.

  9. Louis

    Well he could do like Labor did in Queensland and create 20k new public service jobs. Oh and start counting work for the dole as a new job created.

    BTW Yes, in my experience, the politicians honestly do believe they create any new jobs that start during their term in government.

  10. Fisky

    The Morrison jobs forecast is exactly equal to the permanent migrant influx. It’s a ponzi promise, nothing more!

  11. mh

    What Morrison means is they will be inviting another 1.25 million people to live here in the next 5 years and they all consume.

    Is there any record of Treasurer Morrison or PM Morrison ever using the term ‘production’?

  12. Ƶĩppʯ (ȊꞪꞨV)

    one million over five years………………….

    well if all those new imports actually worked… it would be a no brainer

  13. Tel

    well if all those new imports actually worked… it would be a no brainer

    Keep them working for a good 40 or 50 years …

    … then steal their Super. Mwahahaha! 🤤

  14. Rusty of Qld

    Lois,
    That is 26,000 + public service jobs delivered by the Palace Chook misgovernment.
    I’ve said it before, lets vote for Clive he is only going to take us to where the other slime bags/morons are going, but well get some laughs on the road to oblivion.

  15. Dr Fred Lenin

    He hasnt got the money to pay all those people? If he has a close investigation into his sources of wealth is called for. Trump did that but then he had Mexicoand Canada to screw ,morro couldnt do that with Indonesia or China . He could emply them in the public payroll and borrow the money to pay them (ask the socialists how to do that ,they know )! If these maggots are the best we can do for politicians ,turn the government over to a computer programmed by Sinclair and Steve Kates,bloody sight cheaper and doesnt bullshit its way through life .

  16. Dr Fred Lenin

    An idea for the ballot papers in the next election ,number the three major crooked gangs
    1 Tossers one (formerly Lnp .
    2 Tossers two ( formerly alp union mafia mob)_.
    3 Tossers three ( formerly gangrene communists )
    4 The other Tossers (assorted dickheads groups )
    No preferences just tick x the tossers you think will do the least harm .
    Compulsory MRI on candidates to check if they really have a brain between their ears .
    I expect astounding findings from MRI results ,you are not gonna believe it !

    Bonus points for any Cat who can work out which party is which.
    You’ve got me there. I think The Big Blue Cat above may have it sussed.

  18. RobK

     lets vote for Clive he is only going to take us to where the other slime bags/morons are going, but well get some laughs on the road to oblivion.
    Clive the Al Gore RET man single handedly brought the country to its knees. He would have been more useful had he done nothing.

    There is that old saying, better to keep your mouth shut and have people think you are a fool than to open it and prove it.

    You’re really serving up some softballs at this point, Spartacus.
    But I’m a nice guy, so I’ll let this one go.

    One thinks electorate is stupid. The other thinks the electorate is a cash cow to fund their hair brained schemes.

    Yea, why can’t they just be clear headed “capitalist socialists” like you, right?

    Socky test?

  23. Chris M

    Well there will be more repo jobs as house prices halve.

  24. mh

    ‘Jobs, jobs, jobs’ was a catchcry of Qld Premier Peter Beattie.

    And boy did he create some public service jobs.

  25. Squirrel

    “This sophomoric semantic scheme in the use of “deliver” is just pathetic. Why does he not just commit to deliver sunlight in the morning and wetness in the water.”

    A point very well made – but, of course, every rooster in every barnyard throughout the world knows that it is his cock-a-doodle-dooing that makes the sun come up in the morning (and that variety of rooster does not need a private jet, and a limousine, and a security detail, and a lavishly staffed office, and a vast bureaucracy to make it happen).

  26. duncanm

    Is there some sort of plan in there.. or just a promise?

  27. duncanm

    Jobson and Lora out on the hustings.

    (Growth and Norda respectively)

  28. Roger

    And how does ScoMo “personally commit” to delivering 1.25 million jobs?

    By keeping the current immigration rate…and crossing his fingers re the world economy.

  29. bespoke

    I will not sleep tonight until the prophet Imp blesses up with his latest ideas.

    You really wrote that, huh?

    Yea deep stuff.
    If only they could be as clear headed as a “capitalist socialist” like yourself, right?

  31. Texas Jack

    Yet more evidence of B-Grade politicians being advised by D-Grade advisers, most of whom are woke millennials intent on reshaping the planet in the vein of the leftist sludge they were taught at school and uni.

  32. Hay Stockard

    Is “Handclappers” a banned word?

  33. Kneel

    “Bonus points for any Cat who can work out which party is which.”

    Tricky.
    Might be possible if we limit it to which one thinks what though.
    Either could be either (or both), so somewhat subjective, I reckon.

  34. rickw

    How about a:

    Stop importing third world dross and leave us the hell alone government!

  35. Easy for ScoMo to create a 1.25 million jobs:
    Keep facilitating unprecedented levels of immigration… jobs ‘growth’ by default.
    Establish the Department of Diversity and Inclusion Compliance and Enforcement… unlimited number of jobs in that boondoggle..

  36. HarryC

    Why doesn’t he create 2 million jobs? Is he anti-jobs?!

  37. Cynic of Ayr

    ScoMo’s personal guarantee is worth nothing!
    Good Grief! Does this bloke really think that his personal word is worth anything?
    So, what happens when it doesn’t work out? What happens if it’s (likely) worse?
    What’s the penalty?
    There is no penalty.
    You cannot call a sacking with a ridiculous lifetime pension a penalty, and for all intents and purposes, unlimited free travel, a penalty.
    I dunno. I’m really wondering if my LNP Membership is doing nothing but feed stupid people. Maybe it’s time to walk away.

  38. Win

    Sure he is and will he then provide the customers that fuel the jobs and pay the wages or is he going to do a Kevin 07 and give money to people to buy Chinese made TVs etc. and fuel the Chinese economy.

  39. Win

    Is itpossibke that politicians design their policies around the media.You know that malignant lying two faced political activists that control people opinions. God help us if they actually spoke to the owners of empty factories and businesses that have succumbed to the Chinese and a Indian bed rock prices of manufactured goods.

  40. The BigBlueCat

    What’s the penalty?
    There is no penalty.

    That’s the point I was trying to make. But honestly, 1.25 million jobs is a low-ball estimate, especially when the state Labor governments are dishing out construction jobs left, right and centre by just announcing new roads, rail and other infrastructure. Dan Andrews is doing ScoMo’s work for him.

    But jobs being paid from the public purse can only last so long – either all the infrastructure gets built (and they need to think of new ways of spending your money), or the money runs out (or is borrowed to excessive limits) and future governments are forced to take more taxpayer money to pay for what’s been spent.

    Much better to let the private sector handle jobs and growth – it lasts longer.
