A dose of reality

Keith Duncan, Pimlico

Great to see the federal coalition finally getting a serious dose of reality. No budget surplus, (it never actually existed), the whole charade was only designed as a marketing ploy to allow ‘Scotty from marketing’ to orchestrate a massive subversive campaign to retain power. No more continuous uninterrupted growth; no ‘back in the black’ mugs neither (withdrawn from sale).

Now the chooks have definitely come home to roost, we’re looking down the barrel of a protracted, and damaging recession, (something Kevin Rudd’s Labor government managed to avoid during the GFC.); a massive government debt of around one trillion dollars, created by the Liberal and National parties, that our grandchildren will be paying off. The Coalition debt was around $700 billion pre COVID-19.

The real heroes in handling this pandemic emergency have undoubtedly been the State premiers, including Gladys Berejiklin, even with her massive stuff-up over the Ruby Princess fiasco. Some premiers even had to endure irrational personal attacks from incompetent Federal ministers, like Allan Tudge who oversaw that appalling robo-debt fiasco by Centrelink.

It’s great to see the likes of Morrison, Frydenberg, Cormann and all the other Coalition apparatchiks finally getting a dose of reality: Welcome to the real world.
