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)

Jobs and growth eh?

Jobs and growth eh? That must be why the Budget papers say GDP growth this financial year will be just 2.5% and the same next financial year.

CPI will be just 1.25% this financial year and 2% next year.

 

A low growth economy for the next year or two might be why Turnbull is going early. And those unemployment figures look dodgy, although the work for $4 an hour scheme will artificially reduce them and the growth in part time jobs will keep them low for a while.

Once the election is out of the way he can then cut the social wage, and spending on public health, education, transport and other programs that benefit workers. Then the Turnbull government can hand a big fat tax cut to business as one way to try to address falling profit rates in Australia.
