Send Barnaby to Indonesia
It is a pity that Barnaby Joyce, a man of tact, diplomacy, nuance and subtlety, isn’t going to Indonesia to fix things up. I know I am disappointed that Barnaby is missing out on this great opportunity, and I am sure the Indonesians feel the same way. [Sarcasm alert.] (0)



The nature of the Labor Party

I have written about the Australian Labor Party and its changing nature viewed through the Minerals Resource Rent Tax disaster. I argue basically that it is moving from a capitalist workers’ party to a capitalist party. Passant, J. (2014). The minerals resource rent tax: the Australian Labor Party and the continuity of change. Accounting Research Journal, 27 (1), 19-36.

This link gets you to the paper on the University  of Wollongong Research Page and you can download it from there, I hope.

John the Labor party are bunch of political whores just the Coalition, Greens and Democrats. They all bow down to the Central Bankers and shaft us via the debt money creation system.

They always tell us there is never enough money for infrastructure, social services or pensions, but there is always plenty of money for wars, derivative share market scams and creating inflation which depreciates our savings and wages.

Surely the masses cannot be this brain dead and continue to elect these rich cock suckers who do not give a damn about them.

The middle class who traditionally elect the Coalition are being targeted for poverty.

Why did the Coalition and Labor vote for the Cyprus style confiscation of bank deposits at the last G20 meeting in Brisbane ? They all must of known since the Citizens Electoral Council sent letters to every senior public servant and politician well before this G20 meeting.
