Keith Duncan, Pimlico

It was nauseating watching our struggling Federal Treasurer (Frydenberg), informing Australians that once again, under a Liberal government, Australia was in a damaging recession, ending 29 years of economic growth, with unemployment now at unprecedented highs [owing to COVID-19). But as usual they’re full of shit, Australia was in a per-capita recession pre COVID-19, something the Coalition is trying desperately to hide.

Scotty from marketing (PM), would have us believe we’re extremely fortunate to have such great money managers in charge dealing with it, and how worse it would be under the other mob (ALP). This from the same person that orchestrated the illegal robo-debt scheme, that hurt so many Australians, presided over the scandalous sports-rorts affair and leads a government that is also responsible for Australia’s one trillion dollar debt.

Government stimulus packages like JobKeeper exclude many hardworking casual workers that don’t qualify (too bad for them). The $670 million Home Renovation Scheme, with very defined limits, excludes homeowners unless they have $150,000 ready to spend! It does absolutely nothing to alleviate the endemic public housing shortage.

We can imagine how the hard-working Australians who are unfortunate enough to be deemed as ‘unlikely to vote for the Coalition’ and who are missing out on all these ‘you-beaut’ stimulus packages are applauding these self-proclaimed ‘great money managers’.

If you can spare a few dollars a week – or maybe more – we would appreciate all the support you are able to give to keep the voice of independent, local journalism alive.


  1. Well said Keith, sadly it all true. ProMo ScoNO still bangs on about bringing the Budget being into Balance …until Covid mugged him and Joshie. But the ‘Budget in Balance’ line is also bollocks because ScottyfromMarketing and Fraudenberg told us all on Budget night 2019….we are…..”Back in Black” and they even had the infamous $35.00 a pop black coffee mugs to sell to us so that we could all sip on the back in black bullshit. The tragedy is that the ‘Quiet Australians’ aka Morrisons Mushrooms just keep on voting for The LIEberals and The LIEberals dutifully keep on delivering more of their same crap. Poor fellow my country.

  2. Yes Keith your Party labor were at a tipping point
    At the last election !! And been absolutely correct
    In my Views that labor and the Greens are as one .. your leader Albo is more left than Shorten
    If thats possible. The party i voted for 20 years
    Are no more then a bigger version of the Greens
    Your article in the latest Echo is just a prime
    Example !! Every opinion poll indicates that Australians want action on climate change
    Rubbish Keith .. who ran these polls , the ABC
    The Guardian , this Global Warming hysteria is slowly being debunked and for good reason .
    Labor keith will not win in QLD and Victoria will follow . Federally labor have no hope and you have to ask why keith ? What sensible policies moving forward are going to win votes Keith ? Your party have learned nothing from the last election defeat
    Keith as a example keith how are labor traveling
    At the moment mate ..?

  3. Barrow – I did not know you were a ‘seer’.
    None of us are ‘travelling’ any damn
    where due to ScoMo’s buggered-up in
    -sights that ought to be ‘lost in space.’
    Truth is, the lot-of-’em belong on Mars.
