Crap Corner – Colonel Costello (1st Howard Regiment, ret’d)

Remember Peter Costello?

He’s the guy who didn’t spend nearly enough on infrastructure during his 11 years as Treasurer.  

He’s the guy who slashed spending on hospitals and schools but had billions for defence, ASIO and other unproductive sectors of society.

He’s the guy who pissed the resources boom revenue up against the tailings.

The Colonel Blimp of Australian politics put on his old battle gear this Anzac Day and went ‘over the top’. 

His stormed the lines of the Conservative Rudd Labour Government. 

Here’s Colonel Costello’s advice to the HowRuddistas. 

You don’t have to have a global financial crisis to fund bridges and roads.  That is ongoing business of Government.

So what the fuck were you doing for those 11 horrible, mean spirited years, Colonel Costello?

Too busy cozying up to price fixer Richard Pratt no doubt.
