Throw out millionaire Malcolm now

Turnbull monopoly


In the editorial in the recently published monthly socialist magazine Solidarity, the editors argue, among many other things:

‘This is a government totally committed to the interests of big business and the rich.

‘It’s now clear that Turnbull can be beaten. But that can’t be left to opinion polls and Turnbull’s gaffes, or electing a Labor government. There has to be a fight.

‘Instead of the union leaders going along with the administrator’s restructuring proposals at Arrium’s steelworks, there could have been a fight for the jobs and demands on Turnbull to nationalise the company.

‘The union leaders need to plan an active campaign against the threat of the ABCC. Turnbull has outsmarted The Greens by using the constitution to recall parliament to vote on his anti-union bills. But strikes and protests at the opening of Parliament on 18 April could have made it clear that the ABBC will be fought with industrial action.’

Don’t worry. The global umpire blew the whistle on this government in the third week of February.

Millionaire Malcolm???

A great deal of Australians would be millionaires these days.

I would even think the author of this blog would be a millionaire, particularly if we consider his very generous defined benefit superannuation entitlement.

Yes, I’m sure Malcolm Turnbull would easily be a multi-millionaire and then some.

On the BRW rich list. Worth about $200 million.
