The Dog’s Bollocks

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

Liberals still on track to irrelevance

The behavior of Federal Liberals these days reminds of the Young Liberals way back when I was first at university. But then again, they mostly are the Young Liberals from those days. Turnbull’s crash and burn strategy, while rich with purile lawyerly debating tricks, is no substitute for actually having a policy stance.

What exactly do they stand for? What would they do differently? Trouble is we have no idea, nor I suspect, do they. Our economic stimulus package would be 5% bigger/smaller than Rudd’s? That’s the problem with presuming to be the natural party of government. The economy would naturally be better under the Liberals. How so? If they have any ideas, we don’t know what they are. All we hear is political static. In a week when the Government announces a $6billion automotive industry package what do the Opposition have to say? Nothing but obsessing over whether or not Dubya knows what the G20 is and whether Rudd leaked the information. Confidence inspiring stuff – not.

Unfortunately for the Liberals, and the health of our democracy, they are determined to stick by my post-election strategy from 12 months ago. There is no evidence to suggest that the Liberals will return to Federal power any time this decade.
