Fortunately in a democracy you get to throw the bums out every so often. Australia has for the past few years been plagued by the worst government since World War 2 and two successive Prime Ministers who by any rational standards would not be employed as waste pickers in Indonesia.
Gillard has the well deserved reputation as the most distrusted Prime Minister in Australia’s history. Her lack of ethics has been on display since from her early employment years when as a lawyer her resignation was “accepted”. This ‘resignation’ came about after an obvious conflict of interest between her firm and a very dodgy union boyfriend was discovered. Gillard treated the Australian public with disdain when she expected them to believe the whole affair did not stink to high heaven.
Gillard continues her ‘me at all costs’ attitude to life when she lied to Kevin Rudd, when she pledged support and within days stabbed him in the back to usurp the position of Prime Minister. She created a minority government by lying to independents on gambling controls. She lied to the Australian Public by declaring before the election there would be no Carbon Tax and promptly introduced introduced one at figure 5 times higher than the EU as a sop to the Greens in a naked power over ethics decision.
As a new election grows closer, her lack of principles on any issue have become more and more pronounced. Unable to to produce a single program that her government has introduced or implemented that has been sufficiently costed or implemented, she and a shrinking batch of inept lapdogs have launched a number of personal and frankly ludicrous accusations against the opposition leader Tony Abbott. Why does she bother? It bemuses the Australian public who are simply embarrassed by the this train wreck of a human being.
Disclosure: The stump has concerns about Tony Abbott as he is a very committed Catholic (Never keen on religion here) but to try and paint him as woman hater or some kind of Pope on steroids is just a absolute nonsense and highlights the sheer incompetence of this government. These nasty little morons even tried to paint Abbott’s commitment to the volunteer fire brigade and other causes as a political stunt only to be humiliated when they found he had being doing such things for decades unlike the self serving toads and union hacks throwing the accusations.
Sadly for Gillard, the Australian people have had a gutful of this ethically challenged, untruthful, unprincipled woman and she is leading the once proud Australian Labor Party to an epic defeat unrivaled in recent history.
Sadly for the Australian Public, she will continue her life of sucking on the public teat after she squandered a huge public surplus and destroyed a major political party in Australia and a the careers of many other Australians both within and without the political prism.
Never in Australia’s history is an election so overdue and anticipated.
