THE Gillard government is increasingly being boxed in by a growing number of policy no-go areas.
It can’t mention border protection without reminding the nation that it destroyed the successful policy initiated by the Howard government. Labor is now frantically attempting to reassemble parts of that policy as quickly as possible, with no regard for its own arguments against the measures it wants to reinstate.
It can’t mention freedom of speech or freedom of the press without stumbling over its ham-fisted attempts to install a censorial regime of regulation by a process which could see editors jailed.
So as long as we have the freedom to speak freely, I will tell you what Â I think should be done with our lying, deceitful and incompetent factory girl -come prime minister JuLiar Gillard:
The faux outrage of a Labor cheerleader
Peter Hartcher, one of Kevin Rudd’s most feverish cheerleaders, surely can’t believe what he writes:
Among some of [Tony Abbott’s] more feverish cheerleaders it has sometimes spilt over intoÂ incitement to physical violenceÂ too, like Alan Jones urging that the Prime Minister be tied up in a burlap sack and dumped at sea.
Does Hartcher, hand on heart, seriously believe Jones was inciting listeners to violence against Gillard with his figure of speech? Really, Peter?
Could you please explain how literally you take the following the expressions:
Is it not just a teensy, weensy bit likely that Hartcher is – gasp – smearing Jones to discredit Abbott?
Surely not, you cry!
