Stupidity does not need help

Stupidity does not need help.  It has its own political party in the ALP.

So, in the middle of their declared climate emergency, what is the ALP proposing to do? 

And if your eyes fail you, the little bit of text at the bottom is this:

Authorised by Anthony Albanese, ALP, Canberra

So says Dr Andrew Leigh:

We need to support our creative industries, not hold them back with outdated policies

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.

    Does anything good come out of twitter?

  2. Mark A

    Will there be celbs, butcher paper and sitting on the floor feigning exhaustion by Albanese?

  3. Nob

    Ebert wondered why Australian “creative industries” are so mediocre?

    Reduced to giving each other prizes.

  4. Percy Popinjay

    Grate – a seemingly interminable taxpayer funded yaartz luvvie wankfest.

    Labore are nothing if not agile and innovative.

  5. Nob

    Ebert?
    Ever.

    But maybe Ebert wondered it too after watching a bunch of film institute product.

    All those hobbyists in inner Sydney and Melbourne need tax payer funding for life you know. Without them the economy climate everythings stuffed. We’ll be DOOMED I’ll tells ya DOOMED!

    Leigh is the classic example of Taleb’s description of

    Academic yet idiot

    Yep, just like the Libs, …………………lets announce that we are going to talk about something.

    This sort of bullshit is seeing the ire of the right build and build.
    If Sco Mo doesn’t do something vaguely right wing soon, he’s going to really hand it to the right wing minorities.

    Australians are idiots in so far as they wait and wait and wait, but then they don’t.
    Remember our forces were know as Vengeful killers and very good at it.
    In the end, German troops refused to face them.

    You’re asking for it Sco Mo.

    This is how incredibly stupid the Liars Party are.

    All businesses are “creative” if and when they are making a positive rate of return. It makes no difference if it’s a milk bar or software business.

    What these idiots should be aiming for are policies that promote increased profitability and you do this by the old fashioned approach

    1. Lowering business taxes
    2. Reducing red tape
    3. Ensure credit flow is making its way to profitable business by not entangling the banking system in red tape.
    4. Reduce energy costs by removing favoritism for renewballs.

    Morons.

    Just when you think our political class could not possibly get any more ridiculously dumb they dig down into ever more clown school depths. Hey Albo…make sure there is plenty of finger paint and crayons available for scribing. That’s a certainty to get the attendees on board.

  11. Entropy

    You don’t need a talkfest to work out what theommendations will be. Preferential treatment, even more OPM and tax breaks in a myriad variety of ways, all so our self appointed betters in the yarts industry don’t have to dirty themselves doing anything that might attract actual audiences.

    Severely educated.

    What does that even mean?
    I heard albo on the Abc radio the other day. He was rabbiting on about RE industry like what he’d seen in WA; lithium mining and processing. That’s what they’ll do. He mentioned a few other things but they were all things that were already being done. The entire interview was complete bollocks. Waste. Of. Time. And .Money.

    It’s 2020 already? Rudd’s creative visionaries are out of date. We need a 2033 Summit!

    Hang on a minute. Won’t we all be fried, drowned, frozen or gassed by then?

    It’s nice to see such optimism amongst our politicians.

    I propose the brainstorming takes place in a padded cell.

  15. Some History

    A sneak peek into the Creative Economy Summit.

    We are now having the vote on priorities that we voted to vote on yesterday morning. The vote this morning is whether priorities remain unchanged or require rearrangement. The latter will require a further vote. This will give us a starting point… or close to a starting point which will require a “commencement” vote… for action.

    … This Summit has concluded that the ALP should take urgent, creative steps to support the Creative Economy.

  16. Caveman

    Price of white boards and marker pens will go up.

  17. calli

    Sharpies Futures.

    That’ll get da Creative Economy rolling.

    Philip Adams could be invited as a lead speaker on the artistic merits of Venezuela’s wonderful cultural progress. I hear it is producing some great street theater these days.

  19. duncanm

    Well, with the de-industrialisation, we may all be sewing cheap T-shirts

    They couldn’t even come up with their own idea:

  20. duncanm

    I agree — arts should not be held back with outdated policies and government interference.

    Remove all arts funding now!

  21. struth

    “Austraya will have a cweative economy”.

    We’re going to cweate a communist state.

  22. Linden

    Julia Gillard nonsense recycled with her 100 brightest and best, oh hum

  23. duncanm

    Isn’t the creative economy summit occurring in Melbourne at the moment – outside the mining conference?

  24. I call this meeting of the left handed lesbian surfboard shapers collective to order. Delores, how ya going with that funding application.

    Okay I guess. It didn’t help that the the Coalition won the election, but I’ve got some encouraging news from whatsisnamenow, oh yeah, that Leigh character. He’s invited us to send a delegate to some Summit he’s holding.

    Stay across that will you Delores. Now, about this correspondence from the right handed lesbian surfboard shapers collective…….

    Bloody splitters!

  25. Roger

    Oh for the days when Keating ridiculed the basket weavers.

  26. Bruce

    Struth:

    “Austraya will have a creative economy”.

    No doubt with a LOT of “creative accounting” as per:

    https://www.bing.com/videos/search?q=%22Creativs+accounting%22+the+Producers&&view=detail&mid=061F7BAA892D3942EEF0061F7BAA892D3942EEF0&&FORM=VRDGAR

    It will be like the old days of 10BA on steroids.

  27. Is he talking about the Artists Welfare Industry? Instead of constantly crying out for more handouts, struggling artists should start producing art that people actually liked and wanted, then there wouldn’t be a problem for these tossers.

  28. C.L.

    You’d think “creatives” wouldn’t need state-directed summit.
    I’m pretty sure Leonardo da Vinci never attended one.

  29. RobK

    What does that even mean? Creative Economy
    Ive heard of “creative accounting “, is that covered?

  30. struth

    Yes , exactly….during the golden years of music, from the fifties to the eighties and maybe a bit into the nineties, the west produced all the good music, taxpayers not required.
    During the same period, Russia……………………SFA.
    As soon AS GOVERNMENT STEPPED IN VIA JJJ and the ABC unearthed and all that shit, it went straight down the gurgler.
    Capitalism provides the best art…………………………………….by far.

    The Creatives from KRuddy’s 2020 Summit – who can “defy Gravity”?
    Has Elon Musk and SpaceX been in contact?

    Amen.
    Their Peoples music, comrade.

    How many alleged Yarists are part time Lollypop Yellow Vest types?

  34. Angus Black

    If I were Andrew Leigh I’d spend my effort on finding water for dry towns and farms in drought; responding the disgusting and utterly shameful treatment of our elderly.

    I think the “creative classes” could find a job or – and here’s a radical idea – create simethung if such value that they could find people willing to pay from their own pockets to hear, see, experience, possess it

  35. Squirrel

    Creative Economy Summit – why bother, the ones who rely on subsidies are aready well and truly in the Labor/Green echo chamber, and the ones who can actually make money basically want the big government proponents to get out of the way.

  36. Dr Fred Lenin

    Creative economy ? I ‘ll drink to that , beats workin very time . Venezuela has a creative economy ,creates starvation abject poverty and chaos , marxism works comrade .
