Tony Abbott PM and Joe Hockey, Treasurer – the great pretenders.

The swinging voterFrom my stuffed political armchair, which is now totally stuffed, a few words on our clever politicians running this country and about to tax the crap out of everyone in the coming May 2014, Federal Budget.

Perspective is a funny thing. One day things look okay  the next, pretty well screwed. I’m past a lot of words at the moment, choking really, but I’ll have a few later I hope.

Tony Abbott, as PM, started okay I thought. Luckily that thought wasn’t set in concrete.

In my mind, the PM has gone from a possible ‘Two Term Tony, to ‘One Term Tony’ to ‘Tony the Taxman’. I might even throw in a ‘Joe the Gadget Man – and remember, bring your money with you’. What about ‘The Backflip Bro’s’? These guys are making ex PM Julia Gillard, broken promise on carbon tax, look like a saint. Are the elections due yet?

Unimaginative, arrogant and deceptive – that’s how the Federal Liberal Government scrub up.

BBH p***** off rating for the Abbott Government now 9.5/10

Word for today;       Apoplectic – ‘not happy Jan’ doesn’t cut it this time.

More to come;    same blog time, same blog channel




  1. Apparently if you believe everything you read on the internet, JFK stole his ‘ask not what your country can do for you’ speech from his old headmaster. But there’s no doubting it, Joe who is telling us that this budget isn’t about doing good things for them but for the country has pinched it from JFK. (Joe the gadget man? I would have thought it more appropriate to call him Joe the hatchet man.


    • Joe the Hatchet Man sounds good too Mary. Might see what others come to mind. Funny how when the Libs were in Opposition, no big fuss was made about Labour spending our way out of the global financial crises. Funny also how Labour aren’t reacting to Tax ’em Tony constantly referring to the financial disaster left by them.
