Beer Politics

This is Bill Shorten attempting to skol a beer the other day. I say ‘attempting’, because in my books it can’t possibly count as a skol if you take more than 10 seconds and if Bob Hawke can do three in the meantime:

Does This Look Like a Government That Had ALL it Could Eat?

Sinclair Davidson brings our attention to these deeply troubling statements from our supposedly conservative, center-right treasurer:

How’s That Landslide Going?

While everyone in the mainstream media was falling over themselves to congratulate WA Labor on its landslide election victory, TMR noticed that things weren’t quite going to plan in the upper house:

The media’s ‘analysis’ of WA Labor’s victory in the WA election seems to be missing something critical: the upper house results.

For anyone who has passed year 3 maths, it’s obvious that WA voters weren’t quite prepared to wholeheartedly trust Mark McGowan and WA Labor just yet.

While Labor will have a 2 to 1 majority in the lower house, they won’t have anything resembling this in the upper house (a likely 15 seats out of 36).

In fact, the upper house looks like it will cause quite a few headaches for McGowan…

The final result now confirms what TMR saw coming a mile away:

Ah Turnbull, You’ve Done it Again

Only the politically inept would:

  • privately tell the Chinese that they’ll ratify the extradition treaty we have with them;
  • have four (i.e. the number of death in Chinese numerology) government ministers (including the Prime Minister) publicly declare that the treaty is good for Australia and ought to be ratified ASAP; and
  • back down within 24 hours when it becomes apparent that NOBODY will support ratification of the treaty – and cause the Chinese to lose more face than they otherwise would.

Yep, real smart.

Extreme Cyclone Carbon Theory Refuses to Die

Given the rarity of cyclones these days, a Category 4 system was all it took for Climate Church Junior Wizard, Adam Bandt, to come rushing out with this hyperbolic untruth:

“Building a new coal fired power station now is like knowing cigarettes cause cancer but starting your kids on a pack a day, or knowing asbestos kills but building your family home with it anyway,” Mr. Bandt said.

“If Malcolm Turnbull uses scarce public money to build a new coal-fired power station he’ll have blood on his hands. The more coal we burn, the more intense extreme weather events like Cyclone Debbie will be. People will suffer.”

(PS: here’s The Sydney Morning Herald refusing to include the ‘blood on his hands bit’. And they wonder why we don’t trust them anymore?!).

(PPS: Dear SMH, I’ve taken a screen shot of your article with a word search showing zero hits for the word ‘blood’ – so please resist any urge you may have to engage in some funny stuff and say that it was all my imagination).

You Going to Push What(?!) Up a Hill?

The stakes continue to get raised in the game to see who can blow the most of our money on energy schemes in the most efficient manner possible.

It all began when South Australian premier Jay Weatherill opened the betting by attempting to generate 40% of his state’s energy needs from wind and solar. Refusing to be intimidated, Tasmania immediately called South Australia’s opening gambit by:

I Can’t Love You in the Dark

The sheer ineptitude of South Australia’s energy policy needs to be seen to be believed. It’s what happens when you let a Labor government stick around for 15 years.

In the end, the lights going out at Adele’s Adelaide concert provided the final straw for Premier Jay Weatherill as he promised to make the State’s energy problem emphatically worse. All he needs is about $550 million worth of socialism, a bit of begging and some good old fashioned – ‘we’re doing it the government’s way whether you like it or not, you got that?’ – communism.

Not So Fast Mark…

The media’s ‘analysis’ of WA Labor’s victory in the WA election seems to be missing something critical: the upper house results.

TMR explains why WA Labor’s victory isn’t quite the landslide the leftist media has projected it to be and why Pauline Hanson would be smiling at how things worked out.

Cross Post – WA Labor to Put Perth Mod Children Into High Rise CBD Towers

Would you send your children to school in a 16-25 story office tower where there are no ovals or playgrounds?

I didn’t think so.

Concerned citizen of Perth has brought my attention to this absolute disgrace which has been completely ignored by the media. While it may be too late to stop WA Labor coming into power, it doesn’t mean that Perth Modern, a fine public school which has produced the likes of Bob Hawke, Kim Beasley, Daryl Williams, Malcolm McCusker needs to be recklessly sacrificed along the way.

Please share this story (originally published here) with as many people as you can:

Editorial – You Get What You Vote For

South Australians and Queenslanders recently learnt this the hard way, while Victorians learnt the hard-left way. Now, Western Australians look like they’re about to follow the lemmings off the cliff.

Bookies currently have Labor at $1.17, with the Liberals at $4.50. And make no mistake, this election won’t be another Brexit or Trump. Those were new movements challenging an establishment, while this election is simply a case of voters letting the other monkey have a go regardless of the cost. Indeed, you’d have to go back to 1959 when West Australians last let a State government last more than 10 years in power.
