The Dog’s Bollocks

Truth is like a dog’s bollocks – pretty obvious if you care to look.

Well that’s clear, then, Malcolm…

The AgeMalcolm Turnbull gave his first campaign pitch for the Liberal Leadership at the National Press Club in Canberra yesterday. Among his qualifications he included his experience with running big businesses and banks and understanding the needs of corporate Australia.

He explained that he doesn’t belief government has any business telling people how to spend their own money, so instead of wasting taxes on grand schemes (like national infrastructure projects in transport, communications and water management I presume) he’ll give it back to the people through tax cuts and they can make their own individual choices about transport infrastructure, health services, education and the like! How original!

Message to Malcolm… um, didn’t we just have 12 years of that already? And didn’t the Australian people throw you out of government six months ago, despite the good times a’booming, because they want solutions to public problems that 12 years of free market laisez-faire economic management hasn’t provided?

Well good luck with that! They’ll be gagging for it in two years time. Not.
