How low can you go?

How invigorating to hear from Mr MacDonald once again. Have you been licking your wounds and recuperating from the hidings the Labor Party and just about everyone else have been dishing out to your pathetic corrupt Coalition?

But sadly, it seems your demeanour has not improved at all. Me, a rusted-on Labor supporter… my, my, you are so perceptive, your level of expertise is simply astounding. And by the way, have you ever managed to convince anybody besides yourself that anthropogenic climate change is a hoax and it is only a conspiracy perpetrated by the UN in order to establish a ‘New World Order’? 

And you can’t be serious saying, ‘the Coalition has never, and would never stoop this low’. My God, whenever they are in government they keep lowering the bar, Labor has to keep raising it every time we kick them out. You don’t seem to remember the infamous ‘Robodebt’ debacle: this insidious scheme was introduced, even though the relevant ministers knew it was illegal, and it resulted in over two thousand deaths linked to the trauma it caused to some of the most vulnerable people in Australia. It would be near impossible to go any lower than that appalling effort. And trust me, we are not done with the perpetrators.
