ELECTION 2010


The following comment sent by me to both the Australian and Andrew Bolt was rejected; was it too close for comfort? No; both papers are served by the one moderator and it would appear that you cannot submit the same comment to either one of  them at the same time and/or day.

“The more they see of her the more they see through her” Rose C Taylor 11/08/2010 (11:00 to 11:30 am).

Enough is enough – from the ABC to journalists in general it is time to stop with  the what I/we say is gospel.

I only have one thing to say; I am prepared to share with you and your readers that I do strongly sense that the overall Election 2010 will be won by the Coalition Party.

My parting comment is directed to all in sundry that regardless of who does win this election that both journalists and readers accept the decision of the people and put an end to the constant whining that follows such outcomes.

 


Election deal

The Greens and Labor have agreed on a preferences deal which is expected to affect the election race in more than 50 key House of Representatives seats. 

'Moving forward' slogan treats us like imbeciles, says speechwriter:

Don’t worry Don her next slogan will be “Moving with the Greens”

"Women vote for the skirt and not the bumbling politician in it."

I may be missing something but when does this bumbling politician wear a skirt?

I heard a talk back caller on the Jon Faine radio show this morning describe Julia Gillard’s dress sense as perfect. (Excuse me while I throw up).

Talking of Jon Faine how come his radio show and the ABC in general always have Labor way ahead in the polls?  I have followed closely the on-line polls (no more cracks about them please) and have yet to see where Labor and Gillard are continuously in front.

If we are going to be governed by the biased women vote then why bother to have an election?

Work choices are dead – my son an employee for more than twenty years of a very large supermarket was not able to offer them casual employment under him terms – it had to be a regular fixed agreement. He has always been a much respected employee and called upon on several occasions to carry out senior duties. Like or not the unions have won.

His decision to change his career path should have allowed him to also be on call for his previous employer.

There is a story on Antony Green in today’s Sun Herald.  I always had the impression that he was on some sort of outside contract with the ABC.  I did not realise that he is in fact an ABC staffer.
He may be good at figures, but as we have learnt from scientists over climate change, personal views can get in the way.

Bill O Tas replied to Rose C Taylor
Sun 25 Jul 10 (02:37pm)

Rose, It’s not really scaremongering. Green’s analysis is based on the assumption there will be an even swing to Labor. Even swings never happen. Also these polls usually have an accuracy of +or-3%, so there is plenty of room for the poll to be innacurate. Polls over time will tell you about voter trends, like the declining vote for Labor over recent months but one poll doesn’t tell you much other than who the voters favoured last week. It is a blunt instrument. Fear not!

watty replied to Rose C Taylor
Sun 25 Jul 10 (02:55pm)

Unfortunately,Rose, Anthony Green using his computer modelling is 100% more accurate than the learned scientists in the IPCC.

It comes as no surprise as the campaign being run by the Liberal Party is possibly the most futile and ineffective I have seen run by any Conservative Party in nigh on 55 years of voting

The backroom seems to be under lock and key and the Party machine seems to have ground to a halt

Julia Gillard to meet with Kevin Rudd in Brisbane
 

PRIME Minister Julia Gillard will come face-to-face with the man she toppled for the top job, Kevin Rudd, at a secret location in Brisbane today.
Ms Gillard, who left Melbourne early on Saturday and arrived in Brisbane at about 10am (AEST) today, was to meet with Mr Rudd at an undisclosed location.
Media have been told access to the meeting is controlled and restricted to photos and vision that will be shared among media outlets.

No school, no play

A NEW national school truancy and student retention plan would stop children from playing weekend sport if they do not attend school.
Labor will also further pitch to the Christian vote with a promise today to expand the national school chaplaincy program to almost two in three Australian schools.

It is getting harder and harder to not only understand Gillard’s beliefs but also to take in her narrow-minded attitude towards the well being of all Australian people.  In particular, I would like to point out that not every child is capable of reaching year 12 and her ‘no school, no play’ program would surely discriminate against a great number of children.

As for expanding the nation school chaplaincy program, let her do so but not as a vote catcher.  Her hypocritical attitude of late is fast becoming what she is; a farce.

Can’t see it working, besides which they are punishing the children for something that is more likely to be the fault of the parent. Make the parents pay.

Gillard Shines as She Spins

"Her quip that John Howard “did not know what it was like to be a woman” was despicable."

What I heard her say later, on the ABC 774 news was “John Howard has never been a mother”.  This remark automatically robbed him of ever having been a “father”.

Julia I say to you -

"Tis far too often we appraise a man for what he is worth rather then praise him for what has had done." Rose C Taylor 1972

It has to be recognized that more and more each day Julia Gillard is showing herself for what she really is; a non-believer in the true democracy that she has never been in favour of. 

Can we really have as our Prime Minister someone that does not stand for the ideals of all Australians?

Labor has stormed ahead in the latest national opinion poll

Having read The Herald Sun, The Australian and The Age on-line news I noted that only the ABC reported the latest opinion polls where you could almost see the smirk on their faces.

…there is a 6.2 per cent swing to Labor in Victoria.
…however the figures suggest Labor could lose up to 12 marginal seats in New South Wales and Queensland.
…the poll also shows the Greens preferences at a record high of 86 per cent in favour of Labor.

Galaxy doesn’t follow the script    

Where was your criticism yesterday re the Neilson Polls? Be it yourself or Mumble from The Australian reading between the lines of Opinion Polls does not always render yours or his preferred result.

COMMENT: Yesterday's Nielsen poll wasn't publicised by a figure with an arithmetic error. If you read the analysis piece in the SMH text yesterday, you'll find it has similar findings to Galaxy on a state by state basis. If you click on the state breakdowns on my election calculator, you'll find recent Nielsen and Newspoll have similar findings. I'm not disputing the poll finding, I'm noting that the headline figure has been calculated incorrectly and that incorrect number has flavoured understanding of the poll.

Comment closed before following could be submitted:

I accept your comment Anthony but in all honesty the truest opinion poll is the result of door to door, face to face questioning.  I know because I pounded the pavements for six months.  Next Saturday is the true ‘Poll’ to follow and hopefully believe in.

Why Labor’s $43 billion broadband will fail

As someone who has been involved with computers and the internet for many years I would like to submit the following:

The average user, like me, can already obtain fast and efficient broadband – I chose to have cable.

To achieve fast access to the internet is also dependant on the proficiency of the computer you use.

Costello flays the lot of them - Gillard, Latham, Oakes and McKew

This election, the Labor Government asks us to reflect on their claim of being superior economic managers in the delivery of sound national programs. In undertaking this process four young people repeatedly come to my mind; Matthew Fuller aged 25, Rueben Barnes, 16, Marcus Wilson 19 and Mitchell Sweeney aged 22. You may not remember their names, but all four died during Labor’s term in office.

These young men didn’t die fighting terrorism in Afghanistan or during the devastating bushfires in Victoria; they tragically died fitting insulation in ceilings, a part of Labor’s home insulation scheme. What I cannot forgive, and will never forget is how this Rudd-Gillard Government attempted, and continues to attempt to evade all moral, political and legal blame for a poorly conceived program lacking ministerial supervision, a program Peter Garrett described as being “very successful” despite four untimely deaths and hundreds of house fires.

I have just one vote. This Saturday I will not be voting for a Labor government or any political party that passes on preferences to the Labor Party. This coming Saturday I will be remembering those four young workers and their families. When you cast your vote, perhaps you might do the same.

It’s simple,Steve. The federal government is not responsible for these deaths,as it is is equally not responsible for the scores of workplace accidental injuries and deaths that occur each year.

State and federal governments have for years put money into various schemes that ultimately involve work in hazardous environments. Work place safety is a matter of state law and contractor responsibility.

Roof cavities are dangerous places because they often contain several generations of poorly documented work of varying quality,in confined and frequently hot conditions.

These recent schemes have demonstrated that there is an unfortunate level of expedient behavior in the work place,a significant number of people who are willing to rort government programs,and that roof spaces will remain difficult work environments.

Mark1,your analogies are simply inapplicable. The federal government provided funds,but did not own or lease the skills,materials,or workplaces,nor did it provide the legal jurisdiction under which work was executed. While we can criticize the government for cravenly folding the scheme in the face of the Murdoch Coalition’s bluster and distortion,the legal responsibilities for OH&S;failures lie with the contractors..which is why some are in court.

universal,you’re a cynical mouthpiece who will exploit workplace deaths to promote your ideological insanity. You may as well have said ‘innocent workers were lured to their deaths in cramped roof spaces by whipping boy-du-jour’s scheme’.There,I’ve fixed/Bolted it for you. Meanwhile,statistically,there were fewer deaths per thousand installations under the scheme than in a typical non-scheme year.

The Gov’t funds created the environment where the shoddy workmanship was allowed to occur. It’s that simple. From an OHS perspective the logistics are irrelevant. They are as precisely as guilty as Shell were for the Longford disaster in 1998 (the royal commission report is available online).

I’d suggest you learn a little about OH&S;before you offer opinions on it.

Gillard should have conceded defeat by the mere fact that she is lacking in the numbers that her party expected of her.  For her to say that the Labor party won on preferences does not wash with me.  First choice is the preference of the voter.

The ABC acknowledges that Labor will end up with 72 seats while the coalition will get 73.  If this prediction is the final outcome then we should all say ‘No to Gillard.’

The Green will side with Labor for 75-72 and therefore only 1 independent need side with Labor for them to have 76 seats. The Coalition will not have legitimacy in claiming government if outpolled 74-72 and could not form government anyway as they could only get a maximum of 75 with all 3 independents.

Does Julia’s remark imply that she intends to abandon Australians should she become the Leader of the Opposition?

Now it’s Abbott in front

Why of Why can’t you leave the result until all votes, including postal, have been counted and verified as correct?

I am not surprised at the stuff ups in the counting bays as I took part in scrutinising at the last election and on more than one occasion had to demand a recount of votes presented by some of those in charge of counting etc.

But, Rose, it’s just riveting. Must say that I’m pretty relaxed. If Gillard forms a government with the Greens - someone wrote about ‘nuclear sunglasses to watch the implosion’. If Abbott gets in, all is good.
Enjoy life. Tomorrow we’re all a day older.

Andrew could you please discuss on the MTR 1377 show tomorrow how Julia Gillard has taken women and their vote back to the dark ages.  Now whenever a woman makes a promise to her partner and/or friends it will automatically be branded as a ‘green promise’.  What disgusts me most is that those of us who did not vote for Labor/Greens will also have to wear this unholy hat.

I am now thinking that Tony Abbott best course of action would be to let the ALP form government by 1 or 2 seats ... sit back .... and watch it destroy itself.

I would have to agree with (Stranded replied to Nice Try!) - please all you labor voters don’t come the raw prawn when Australia can no longer present itself to the world as a democratic country.

Sick, Sick, Sick.

I am not joking when I say that the events of the past two weeks have left more than me feeling that our country no longer gives promise to a new tomorrow.

At what point do the voters of Australia seriously get a chance to be heard?

At what point do the voters of Australia get the government with most genuine seats elected?

When an independent politician gains his seat with the preferences of one party yet chooses to turn his back on them while claiming he wants protection for compulsive gamblers then all I can say is who does he think he is fooling?  Any serious gambler wanting to play unrestricted poker machines will automatically go to a casino and/or play on line.

Unfortunately there is no casino hospital for the people in Tasmania to turn to.

Turning face for one who sold her soul for a pair of shoes does not in my book paint a picture of confidence.  More in line with a disaster waiting to happen.

Labor’s black hole is far deeper

Ding, dong, dole, Jooly’s in a hole. Who put her in? Little Bobby Thin Who pulled her out? Little Tony Stout. What a naughty boy was that,

Yes Tony’s own black hole has not saved his day however, unless Labor can justify their black hole how can we be expected to accept a Labor minority government?

  • Prime Minister Julia Gillard says Kevin Rudd will not dominate foreign policy

    Rose Taylor of Melton West Posted at 1:29 PM Today

    I am still trying to come to terms with the Labor Minority Government compliments of the Independents. What we now have is Julia Gillard favouring those who placed her as Prime Mimister. How she can reward Rudd is beyond belief. Watch your back Julia there are a number of your colleauges who will as a quick as a wink do to you what both you and them did to Rudd. The day we once again have a true democractic selection of a government to both rule and guide canâ??t come soon enough.

Election truisms and furphies - but no freedom of speech

 

I am of the opinion that it is about time you sat on a rather large pin and released all the hot air that you have been storing up.  May I also suggest that you allow Julia Gillard the use of this pin when you have finished using it.

Rob Oakeshott warns goodwill of parliamentary reform deal could collapse - another denial of freedom of speech

Mr Oakeshott also dismissed suggestions he had sought the Speaker's chair to claim a pay rise.

“I don't think it (pay) is talked about when the political parties have it ,” adding he didn't know the details of the pay and “in the end that is not the point”.

If Mr.Oakeshott was unaware of the details of pay what else is he unaware of?   Was he all of a sudden made aware that the present speaker was not performing in the correct manner?  Right from the start Oakeshott has caused controversy especially with his own electorate and my observation is that “in the end that is the point”.

Gillard looking a lot like Howard

·         TrevorN :

20 Sep 2010 10:28:11am

Our PM should keep her political options open. It's no crime to alter policy objectives if the opportunity arises. The ALP never abandonded their climate chane objectives but deferred the timing for their introduction until there was a more favourableclimate to pursue them.

There was no sign before the election that big business would support either a mining tax or a carbon tax but now that they are supporting both so soon after the election,and it would seem that the timing is at least right to bring those objectives forward. Flexibiliy is everything in Government.

And Glenn, you forgot to mention that the primary reason for Howard getting the boot was that he also gave us the "never ever" GST, Workchoices, children behind razor wire, and a war we should never have been in.

So isn't it about time that we had a bit of balanced politcal reporting? The thinking public are not going to put up with unprofessional behaviour from our journos nor unprincipled behaviour from our politicians for much longer wihout jacking up on the lot of you.

§         Rose C Taylor :

20 Sep 2010 11:31:00am

“And why? Because he came into government in 1996 and found what he described as "a $10 billion Budget black hole" left to him without ever being made public by the Keating Government.”

Gillard’s announcement that key government promises made before the election no longer necessarily apply because of the 'new environment' created by a hung Parliament," should read because Labor have once again created a black hole. Any further announcements made by Gillard should be taken with a grain of salt.

  1. Euthanasia laws 'almost impossible': PM

    If God should not come into it then would someone please tell Miss Gillard to stop impersonating those who believes he exists. Both Gillard and Rudd have always acted like a couple of creeping Jesuses.
