A few months ago in a moment of public candour unusual for one of the ruling rabble, Rabid-the-Hun's dominatrix, Peta Credlin cheerfully admitted that "The Carbon Tax" campaign waged by them was just a ploy to make it a indefensible hip-pocket election issue. It was all smoke and mirrors!
And now ten years later this travesty of a government has business bodies literally screaming out for one to gain some certainty on energy policy and the investment landscape and environmentalists are wringing their hands in frustration at the lack of any or real determined action on dealing with climate change.
Not two days later due to extreme weather and the energy regulators incompetence, South Australia endured widespread blackouts as power transmission lines were felled and the regulator, well, didn't. This event caused even more smoke and mirrors as Truffles Turnbull and Fictions Frydenberg attempted to blame alternative energy for the state's problems only for the two of them to be widely seen as more of a hindrance than help, particularly after SA premier to much applause, justifiably tore strips of Fictions at a press conference. So it was a pea and thimble con to the rescue when Truffles announced Snowy Mountain Mc Scheme Mk#2 by ordering a review into a possible $2 billion project to probably start sometime in the future and probably increase the Snowy's electrical output by 50%.
Basking in the warm inner glow of thinking he'd actually done something worthwhile, Truffles this week announced that the ruling rabble's smoke and mirror deception over the Gillard government's Gonski school funding, (remember "Gonski Dumbski" from Chwissie The-Whyning Pyne, and-Perfect-Prat-of-a-Prefect) program was really just another hoax and so has employed the same Gonski to do a Mk#2 review to justify what looks to be a pea and thimble trick by abandoning the most disadvantaged schools in the north of the country, reduce the outrageous overfunding to private schools a little and mildly increase funds to state schools over a ten year period.... yes, ten years of forward estimates when this mongrel lot have increased the debt by 50%. Better dressed than usual but still another shambles of a faux policy from the ruling rabble…pea and thimble, smoke and mirrors, just the normal “Ooh, look at all the money we’re putting back … but not as much as we cut…or in the same place.” And add another distraction from TAFE and tertiary funding cuts where Australia in now amongst the most expensive countrys in the world for tertiary education.

Chaos, thy name is Truffles!
The smoke and mirror sophistry of the "Debt and Deficit Disaster" they promulgated so effectively against the Rudd/ Gillard government has come back to bite them on the bum because, having no coherent policy except IPA thought bubbles and rather more importantly, no financial talent, the ruling rabble have doubled yes, doubled the debt and deficit. This embarrassing lack of riches has had pretend treasurer, Scummo Morrison inform us that there is now something called "good debt and bad debt". In this variation of a pea and thimble trick the confederates to the shyster (who pay no tax) are going to try and make off with $50 billions in tax breaks whilst schools, health and infrastructure go begging!
I reckon Petals, you can see there's a pattern emerging here.
Lurching from his shambles (again, due to injudicious cost cutting) of a national census to the Frankenstein-esque copper NBN (now six months late and counting) which has Australia now dropping in ranking to around 35th in the world for internet speed but near No.1 for retail cost, we had t'other day, the spectacle... well, no the spectacle didn't happen... I'll explain. In the joint commemoration ceremony for the Battle of The Coral Sea, Oz was supposed to drop wreaths from one of its new, you-beaut, Spanish built, Air Warfare Destroyers. Only neither of the two could make it because someone broke them. It seems that not only can we "not-build-a-canoe" but we don't know where to put the correct oil in the asymmetric drives of these vessels.

Barnyard Joyce, deputy prime miniature was on QandA t' other night. Kee-rist, he's an idiot....thinks Mandy Il Patrone Vanstone is not right wing, the ABC's full of closet communists, then rants one set of specious "facts" after another. And the looks of sheer hate toward fellow panellist Plibersek says much about the crudity of this mongrel's mind. He also maintained that we have "..a moral responsibility..." to have Adani ship coal to India so that the poor can have electricity. But we have none about casting refugees into concentration camps...
So it's all a left-wing ABC, is it Barnyard? Try ABC 7.30, 3/5/17: Leigh Hissy-Fit Sale's tart little aside of when presenting the news that some private schools would have a little of their funding cut was "...something Labor never had the guts to do..." and she eventually followed up with a nauseously obsequious and pointless "interview" with geriatric Sydney shock-jock, John Laws. And let's not mention the right-wing bias of Sabra Spitty Lane who manages to avoid any balance whatsoever on topics and just propagandizes all the ruling rabble cant.That's "Left" is it "Barnyard????
Petals I'm off, to polish some mirrors to see the 100% of the Australian press owned by the Ugly American, Murdoch more clearly.
