And now more dumb ideological class-war shit from Pyne, wanting to re-trash the student union fees at universities.

These guys are still fighting the battles of twenty years ago.

And capping the number of places.

Good Lord, we can't have any old riff-raff aspiring to higher education! Some of them are actually reputed to fund their studies by such menial tasks as waiting tables or delivering pizzas.

Not at all the types we want rubbing shoulders with the children of people of our class.

Given that Abbott started out in student politics, I think he really is still fighting the battles of his youth.

Power doesn't seem to have bolstered Abbott's courage all that much.

Here's a bit of more 'on the ground' observation.

The upgrade of the New England Highway at Bolivia Hill.
This bottleneck has seen some serious truck accidents but rumour has it that the Federal Government has withdrawn funding.

Over on the Gwydir Highway, on the descent of the Dividing Range, all work seems to have now stopped. The signs are still up and the traffic lights on one of the one lane sections are still there and operating and the other straight one lane section is protected by Give Way signs.
All of the heavy equipment has gone as have the vital 'Portaloos',(Portable dunnies are a must in remote bushland) :lol:

There may well be reasons other than cuts to funding but it does seem strange that there has been a sudden stop to all work.

Okay. So now we find out that 2 YEARS AGO Barney the Carney and Brandis claimed more than $3,000 from we taxpayers to go to a wedding. What's more, the wedding of a shock jock since sacked for shooting his mouth off about the then PM Gillard.

Does this stink? The real question is: how much does it stink? It's hard to be shocked by the hypocrisy sometimes, it's just so commonplace.

Tony Abbott may have a more pressing challenge than convincing Labor to abandon its carbon price - keeping his own senators in line over issues such as his generous paid parental leave scheme.

Simmering resentment within the Coalition parties over both policy and personnel within the still new Abbott government, including anger at what one called ''the iron fist approach'' of the Prime Minister's office, has increased the possibility of an outbreak of ill-discipline as early as the new year.

West Australian MP Don Randall should be lawyering up and preparing for a full investigation by the Australian Federal Police after revelations of his taxpayer-funded cross-continental trip to Cairns last year, apparently to take possession of an investment property.

That is, if you take the experience of former MP Peter Slipper as the standard, rather than the cosy arrangement that all other federal politicians have enjoyed for more than a decade.

Gee, isn't that nice? Randall can pay the money back. What a shock.

Well, if debt is the problem more debt is not the answer.


-Joe Hockey, National Press club, 28 AUGUST 2013


Quote

"The Coalition Government will have to increase the debt limit for Commonwealth government securities to $500 billion," he said.

"We are increasing it to that level because I've been advised that on December 12, the current debt limit of $300 billion will be hit."

He said the last Treasury assessment, provided in the pre-election fiscal outlook, predicted debt would peak at $370 billion.

However, recent trends show it will instead "exceed $400 billion".



-Joe Hockey, Press conference, 22 OCTOBER 2013

Not far off the mark, Scotto.

Sturmbannf├╝hrer Cormann has links.

Quote

Senator Cormann also met six members of the Heritage Foundation, a tax-exempt think tank. The foundation's political offshoot, Heritage Action for America, has guided efforts to withdraw funding on US President Barack Obama's flagship healthcare policy, the Affordable Care Act.

Senator Cormann then met Matt Kibbe and Wayne Brough, of the Tea Party group Freedom Works.

The gravy train rolls on



Quote

Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull yesterday actively avoided taking questions from the media about whether it was unethical to appoint several ex-Telstra executives with personal connections to the Liberal MP but little experience with network infrastructure rollouts to help NBN Co undertake the Strategic Review into its future broadband model.

And you reckon Conroy knew what he was talking about?

"Little experience with network infrastructure roll-outs" from ex-Telstra executives.

About the only experience Conroy has is running around with red undies on his head and accepting free ski weekends from Eddie Obeid.

Conroy was out of his depth on Day 1 and just got worse. It would be impossible to spend money at a faster rate and get nothing for it - just Amazing!

Has there ever been a more incompetent Minister on either side of Politics than Steven Conroy since Federation?

Certainly never one that spent so much money for so little return.

Umm..... Howard was a minister, right? And Abbott has decided to rubbish climate change, again, in the press. I would call that a frightening level of incompetence right there.

Hmm, I guess somewhere somehow in that alternate universe you inhabit, Conroy must be responsible for giving jobs to Mal's mates.

But I'm stuffed if I can see it.


I find it interesting that Lib supporters have resorted to deflection so soon after the election.

Not much to be proud of, is there?

Tony Abbott's hand-picked auditor charged with assessing government spending and advising on outsourcing runs a company that has won contracts from the federal government worth more than half a billion dollars.

The opposition has accused the government of stacking its Commission of Audit with big-business representatives and ideological fellow travellers.
