Abbott's imploding act-

Tony Abbott's government should be sacked now before they completely ruin the country. Evidence?

  • George Brandis, our chief law-maker, goes on national television to explain the government's expensive new internet snooping policy... and can't.

  • Tony Abbott can't deliver on a repeal of section 18C as he promised his conservative mates before the election; even Andrew Bolt derides his weakness and indecisiveness.

  • Tony Abbott still clinging to his (or was it Rupert Murdoch's?) stupidly expensive paid maternity leave scheme despite indications from members of his own party that they will vote against it when it comes to parliament.

  • The most telling sign that they're in chaos is the fact that they can't pass key budgetary measures three months after the budget, with most things still deeply bogged down in negotiations with the minors, destroying business confidence and leaving the probability of a double-dissolution more and more likely with every passing day.


Undoubtedly the Abbott government is the most indecisive, incompetent and incapable conservative-led government we've had in this country since Billy McMahon or possibly Stanley Melbourne Bruce. I for one am calling for our Governor General, the Hon. Peter Cosgrove, to do the right thing and sack this incompetent government if they continue to undermine confidence in our nation and fail to pass laws.

Discuss.

I honestly though you had more sense than to come up with this sort of political crap.

Hockey is now under increasing pressure from within his own party and government  over the budget. Seen to be too harsh.

The jobs idea of 30 applications per
Month of just stupid. Assumes there are 30 jobs available to apply for.

His stance against women is a problem for him in the electorate.

You cannot negotiate with minor parties that propose unconstitutional ammendments to legislations/budgets and repeals.

You have got to be kidding. So long as he's a candidate for the blue team, Hockey (or any other team member in that seat) is safe regardless of what they do.

I think that don_dunstan needs to remember that it's not a sin to be incompetent.  It certainly is not a sacking offence. I am personally glad that Peter Cosgrove has no grounds on which to sack the government. The idea that a Governor General can dismiss a government because of some people's perceived ideas doesn't bear thinking about. Government by Vice Regal whim is something we can well do without. Governors General are supposed to be above politics.

I'm with Tony on backing down on the 18C stuff, I'm not a Liberal supporter but even I can recognise that as a sign that this government is growing into the role in the same way it took Kevin07 a fair time to get over the post-election awkwardness.

Being dissed by a fascist like Andrew Bolt is certainly not a bad thing, if he'd been writing his sh1te in the 1930s he would probably have accused Nazi Germany of being a soft liberal regime that should have taken a harder line on racial minorities.

At least political threads have a reasonable lifespan... I'm genuinely interested in what others think.
