Looks like an incompetent Aussie electorate voted in an incompetent Aussie government.But console yourselves my Aussie friends...we are not the only ones. Have a look at the United States.....Barack Obama had always looked like a nice guy and well educated....but in politics......he is just hopeless. He looks indecisive and meek.In the United Kingdom as well Campbell (the PM) does not look the best either.
What the hell is going on in all these countries...is it the water we drink....or is it some additive in the junk food we eat?

Sure. The fact that the LNP has been elected to government is not an automatic mandate for every one of their policies. It's cheap, but predictable, for the incoming government to point to the election result as vindication for all of their policies, but this is just not true.


Agreed!

This leaves aside the question of whether there is any such thing as a 'mandate' in any case.


Certainly there's a mandate for (what was alleged to be an opposition with slogans but no policies) "stopping the boats", and "scrapping the carbon tax".

Take for example the PPL policy of the LNP. There has been a great amount of disagreement with this policy from all quarters, including the Liberal party itself, and for Abbott to proclaim that now he has an undeniable mandate for this policy is laughable.


Very popular with the tree huggers. Not so much for many conservatives. So I'd say we might agree.

NBN policies were debated a great deal, and it is patently obvious that this was not a great selling point in the LNP victory.


Not so patently obvious to me.

Unfortunately though, all analysis of their budget "emergency" measures have pointed out that their cuts are in fact trivial [and symbolic, in the case of foreign aid] in nature


Agreed, absoultely agreed! Go scotto! Go! Push for more meaningful budgetary constraints.


View Postscotto, on 15 September 2013 - 07:31 AM, said:

In fact, last we knew, Abbott's team was not even getting ready to be sworn in.


Patience is a virtue! Just another sleep or two. :D

What a difference it makes when you have to actually manage the economy.



Quote

With incoming Treasurer Joe Hockey now publicly musing about providing fiscal stimulus to the economy out of concern about how weak it is, let’s look back at the Coalition’s best arguments against stimulus when Labor used it during the financial crisis …

And now they're applying their usual deft touch to the Indonesian government.

Incoming foreign affairs minister Julie Bishop says she is confident the Coalition will be able to implement all of its asylum seeker policies regardless of how Indonesia views them.

Interesting that Sinodinos has been overlooked for a ministerial appointment.

Given his ties to the Obeids 'n all.

The Press Ccouncil has found that Fairfax's allegations re the AWU "slush fund were basically full of shit.

The context was as a response to post-election observations. Before the election, the member for Dobell was honkey dory, but the birds are coming home to roost post-election.

“But glaring contradictions between what he does and what he says will be
harder to get away with as Prime Minister.

On Wednesday, as his team was being sworn in at Government House, the mantra
had morphed to the rather ambiguous statement that: “We hope to be judged by
what we have done rather than by what we have said we would do.”

Considering all the bumph about not breaking promises and restoring faith in
government, this seemed a little bizarre.

Except of course, less than two weeks since election day, a lot of the
rock-solid time-frames – all that ‘Day One’ , ‘First Hundred days’, ‘First Year’
stuff – on the delivery of promises have started to slip.

Sydney’s WestConnex motorway was to be “under way” within 12 months. Best
estimates now are that construction will commence in early 2015. Operation
Sovereign Borders is also a work in progress at a very different rate from the
one that pledged to stop the boats from Day One. Meanwhile, search parties have
been sent out to look for a budget emergency that disappeared behind a suddenly
discovered economic emergency that may force the Coalition to let the budget
deficit blow out, rather than be cut back, in the short term.

For an adult government, it has, like, something to learn about clearly
saying what it means.”

Well said Laura.

Already the Abbott government is looking like a rerun of the Howard one - and in the worst possible ways: cheap, nasty and vindictive. Or, the words of Shane Stone in those years, "mean, tricky, and out of touch."

Tony Abbott has broken his campaign promise to spend the first week of his prime ministership with the Yolngu people in Arnhem Land, so News Corp is now pretending he never made it.
