One had to be amused by Bill Shorten’s TV comment on Tuesday after the Turnbull termites white-anted Tony Abbott.
This arrogant opposition leader had the audacity to say "one down, one to go". I wonder how long it will take him to realise that the “one to go” will be him.
Labor hasn’t got a hope in hell of winning as they don't have anyone in their party with enough intelligence to lead anything anywhere.
As for the turncoats in the Liberal camp, be sure your sins will find you out and the silent majority of the true blue will give you your comeuppance at the next election.
This leaves only independents and the naive greens as prospects, neither of which warrant any opportunity to foul up our nation any worse that what it is about to become.
Grave error tossing Tony. One they will rue the day they did so.
Many Australians supported brief off-shore processing with rapid regional resettlement for asylum-seekers arriving by boat.
However I’m sure most Australians have never supported the indefinite detention and obscene cruelty to desperate people that now seems to be occurring in our off-shore detention centres.
These centres have become a national shame, a national disgrace – in Australia and internationally.
Increasingly, decent Australians are sickened by the horrible abuses to men, women and children occurring in our off-shore detention centres. And Australians are becoming increasingly concerned by the authoritarian gag laws being passed in our parliament to prevent anyone involved with these centres from speaking out.
We need to welcome these people for who they truly are – people who felt so badly about their chances for a decent existence in their home country that they were willing to risk their lives and their children’s lives on a dangerous boat journey to Australia; desperate for a better life, ready and grateful to make a contribution to our nation.
It's now long past time to close these centres and re-open swift, efficient, decent and dignified processing centres here in Australia.
Staffed by highly trained Australian professionals who genuinely care, and well-resourced to effectively educate, orientate and settle these traumatised people into our nation.
What better service can we offer the suffering peoples of the world then to make new Australian citizens out of them?
Good for them, good for us, good for the nation, and ultimately good for the world.
It is well past time for our nation to start recognising these people for who they truly are, and to welcome them and support them in commencing their lives in this great nation they are so desperate to join.
SCOTT Morrison squealed that he was offered the treasure's job and deputy prime minister if he would support ex-PM Tony in the leadership vote.
Scott was under no obligation to admit this, and there’s no way to prove that it happened. But what it does indicate is that it is a stab in the back for Tony.
This act of disloyalty in spilling the so-called beans of his conversation with Tony, proves there’s minimal loyalty among politicians.
Their disloyalty to the nation is demonstrated by them passing legislation that will be detrimental to Australia's long-term interest. The new PM needs to be watched very closely as his track record is dubious to say the least.
