No Juliar, you’re the PM, it’s your fault


Doesn’t it just make you cringe when you hear stuff like the following?

JULIA Gillard has blamed Tony Abbott for the arrival of two new asylum-seeker boats, saying his refusal to back her Malaysian Solution made him responsible for the unauthorised vessels and all others that would follow.

Memo to the PM: Before your government took power, the boats had stopped coming. The ALP changed the laws, and the boats flooded in.

Do the math.

Former Labor heavyweight, Graham Richardson:

Now Labor brings in legislation that nobody wants into a parliament certain to reject it. This is a form of masochism: it is almost as if the government wants to keep feeling the pain of failure. This is a drawn-out execution of a misguided policy Labor should never have endorsed.

On his Sky show, he mentioned it was the end of a pathetic week in what’s been a pathetic year.

Hear, hear.

    Julia makes the transition from Useless PM to Pathetic PM.

    I used to cringe at her antics, but now, I just feel ill.

    What is worse is that she bragged when the policy was changed, that it was her policy the Labor Party was going with, and now she is saying that “Tony Abbott should pass her amendments to rescue HER Malaysian solution, and that any boats to come are his responsibility”.

    Have to say that a question now hangs over her sanity, there is something not quite right with Julia.

    • Well, if it had worked (???), it would have been her policy. Now, of course, it’s Chris Bowen’s.

      And it’ll be interesting to see how bi-partisan Labor will be when they’re a tiny rabble in Opposition.

      bing hope you don’t mind my putting this up, but it is a very good article from Piers Akerman about the same subject and how Julia changed the policy from the one Abbott saw on the weekend and the one she handed him on Monday.

        Cherish.

    Is Abbott the new Bush?

    • Almost. He’s the new global warming. There’s nothing that man can’t be blamed for.

  1. I wonder if Obama and Gillard have a conference each day to go over their strategy. She sounds an awfull lot like Obama (or from your perspective, Obama sounds an awful lot like her).

    • Word of the day: incompetence.

      And if it ain’t incompetence…
