Albo on the slide

Albo’s popularity has gone negative. At last the punters are getting an inkling of the real inner workings of the liars party thanks to Setka and the revelations about corruption in the NSW division.

Still more to come when the implications of Labor policy on renewable energy get picked up although the Libs will have to take some heat for dysfunctional policy on that front as well.

Exciting times!

    Albo has managed to be a less effective opposition leader than shorten and he lost to a bunch of clowns.

    Promoting the puppet was an obvious first mistake by Albo.

  2. Fisky

    Real dumb move putting Keneally on the front bench. Awful judgment. But that’s our Albo. Mark Latham has often pointed out that Albo was one of the most rabid anti-borders agitators behind the scenes in the crucial 2002-2007 period, which means the 2,000 drownings are on him as much as anyone else.

    Why is it that whenever I hear “Albanese”, Enver Hoxha comes to mind?

    let’s see if the media actually apply a little rigour to their role

    Shanghai Sam and Aldi shopping bags full of cash likely didn’t help their cause either, Comrade.

    The libs and renewable energy policy?
    They are funding the third version of that CSIRO study put together by that bunch of futurists that will have us all just like them by 2050: inner city apartment dwelling global citizens eager for a global carbon tax driving magically cheaper power from renewables.

    You might think CSIRO is s bunch of real scientists studying waterbugs; crops or new wifi technology. But there is more: despite there being an ABARES funded by this same government, and several dozen Universities funding similar stuff, CSIRO is apparently the largest “social science” entity in the world. In. The. World. And you know what happens to a word when you stick “social” in front of it.

    Any talk of funding cuts gets the Peppa Pig treatment though.

    Hardly sarcasm when it’s used as a sign-off at the end of every, single, sentence.

    Sarcasm:

    1 : a sharp and often satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain
    2 : a mode of satirical wit depending for its effect on bitter, caustic, and often ironic language that is usually directed against an individual

    “Their ABC’ is a play on ‘Your ABC and the earlier Our ABC’. That’s not sarcasm. Slow learner indeed!

  16. Shy Ted

    Over at The Guardian (daren’t link in case I catch something left) they are saying Jacqui Lambie holds all the cards and one of her conditions is Setka goes. Prolly why she had a big win with the public housing debt. She also wants random drug testing for MPs, I think all they need to do is pop them on the breathalyzer after lunch. Now I know it’s The Guardian and you can’t believe a word of it but it seems she has an advisor with a bit of common sense. I can’t help but think the public housing debt is related to years of Green gummint in Tas putting the low skilled out of work.

  17. Fvckwit, indeed.

    Indeed, you were using ‘comrade’ at the end of every sentence until I pointed out how stupid it was. And your argument in rebuttal is just personal attacks?

    Sarcasm is said to be the cousin of anger, retard.
    It has many forms, usually involving irony.

    comrade
    /ˈkɒmreɪd/
    Learn to pronounce
    noun
    (among men) a colleague or a fellow member of an organization.
    “an old college comrade”
    synonyms: companion, friend; More
    a fellow soldier or member of the armed forces.
    noun: comrade-in-arms; plural noun: comrades-in-arms
    “Hewett turned and rushed to help his comrade”
    a fellow socialist or communist (often as a form of address).

    Take your pick.

    bemused, egg, can you please stop derailing this thread when so much deep political discourse is taking place.

    Back on topic, has everyone considered the implications to one political parties policies as opposed to the other political parties policy implications?

    Also, Albo is a short-hand for a politicians name I know so I’m going to include it in my post because politics.

    So much politics, am I rite guys?

  30. Up The Workers!

    Given that Italy change their Prime Minister more frequently than a swaggie changes his underpants, with AnAl the Brothel-Hoppers’ ‘interesting’ ancestry, we might be able to save a bit of money by sharing him 50/50 as Prime Minister of Australia AND Italy simultaneously. Half an Aldi-bag full of goodies sounds a lot cheaper than having to cough-up a full one.

    Section 44 might take a dim view of that, but that’s why we have all these A.L.P.-appointed “little maaate” Judges at Federal and State level to selectively turn a blind eye and create partisan exceptions to the rule for the very same Party “little maaates” who appointed them; lock up innocent Cardinals after applying the highly effective ‘Carl Beech’ British ‘investigative’ methodology to pre-vilify, blacken their reputations and paint them as guilty before trial; refuse to try Leftard Party Leaders accused of non-consensual sausage-sinkings with drugged minors, or refuse to try others accused of embezzlement, fraud, perjury and forgery, etc., etc.

    Too much crime for one nation to bear. It’s about time we shared it with another nation and AnAl the Brothel-Hopper sounds like he’s made for the dual role.

    Yes, a better effort today.

  34. Dr Faustus

    The Labor Party needs a new leader because Albo is on the nose. What about Keneally being given a go?

    The Labor Party is doing just fine with Invisible Albo thrashing around in the long grass.

    Best to leave Keneally on the shelf for another year or so, just in time for her blond ambition to trigger a ‘Good-Opposition-Losing-Its-Way’ bloodbath that delivers – Bill Shorten, the Wukka’s Friend – and a reprise performance of Ol’ Time Class Warfare.

  35. I think language, words and context is important. Using throwaway lines or words without applying it in a meaningful context is pointless.

    The word ‘comrade’ has quite a specific meaning, especially to anyone who has had direct involvement with what it originally encompassed, which I and my parents have.

    Its random use eventually means that it’s full import is lost and it loses all significance. Saying, ‘Labor comrades have been caught out’ has quite a different meaning to ‘Labor has been caught out, comrades’.

  36. Howard Hill

    I’m as dumb as a bag of rocks and even I know why people use the phrase comrade, sheesh!

    @ Robbo.
    The whole country needs a new leadership because politics in Australia is on the nose.
    I fixes it for ya 🙂

    It’s actually nice not having an opposition leader be a the chief whinger of the nation for a while. Short term it won’t work as well as Shorten complaining a 6pm everyday, but that strategy failed. People were happy to whinge and cry poor me, but won’t vote for someone they don’t trust.

    “It’s actually nice not having an opposition leader be a the chief whinger of the nation for a while.”

    It would actually be nice to have an opposition at all.

    On Energy, Renewables, Big Spending, Big Taxation, Big Government, Big Regulation, Anti-freedom…

    …these guys are on a unity ticket (although Labor does pride itself on “being worse”)

    Only on border protection is there a practical difference, despite Labor “believing in Strong Borders”, while demonstrating to everyone that they simply do not.

    I cannot comprehend the furore about the Aldi bag full of money,the alp official found it and was holding on to it untill the owner claimed it , quite simple see ? The extreme right wing nedia making a mountain out of a molehill . Mr Albanese is a very capable , able ,honest leader ,he is very popular amongst the Thai masseurs and would nake a great PM in the true alp manner , like Rudd,Giliard , . etc., the alp has a history of able leaders in this country .

    True – there is no significant difference between Li. and La. on the big ticket issues. Both have been infiltrated by globalists so what can we expect. In addition public servants are generally leftists and big business seems to be more focused on being woke than delivering profits so you can see why we are going nowhere. Apparently the RBA has finally announced that immigration has lead to increased house prices. Have they have only just worked this ?

  41. Rafe Champion

    What if the RBA said something about state taxes and local council red and green tape and house prices?
    Not Keynesian enough?

  42. Iampeter

    Hmmm, good point.
    But what if the RBA said something else about state taxes and local council red and green tape and house prices? Maybe they say something about other random things too?

    Hard to say.

    Coal, oil and gas are also free – they are just waiting there.

    Just like reuinables, the cost is in collecting it.

    I used to think it funny to see how comically in awe of the mundane and the half-witted stoned hippies would get – until I realised they were just as comically in awe of the mundane and half-witted when they were straight.

    The smoking was simply akin to the way people tap their feet while entire symphonies blare out in their heads – the tapping adds nothing to the music, it is merely an overflow.

  45. Rafe Champion

    It’s not their remit.

    Point taken JC.

  46. Petros

    Entropy, KRudd did cut the CSIRO numbers by about 300 from memory.

  47. Iampeter

    It’s not their remit.

    Point taken JC.

    Yes indeed, JC has a point about you saying something about the RBA saying something.
    But, what if the RBA said something else?

    So much political discourse of so much depth!
