Joe Hockey, dead a week ago, is now a twitching corpse.
Yes, fifteen dollars to go to the doctor is a lot to ask of an old woman. Yes, $200 a week for six months is a lot to take from a young man. No, this is not a "debt and deficit disaster", it is a bump in the road. Yes, it was wrong to bid Holden to fuck off out of Australia. Yes, we could do with a car industry. Yes we could.
This man is not so much a disaster as a dill. He truly cannot add. It is a serious fault in a Treasurer.
Worse, he has nothing to bribe or threaten Palmer with.
Palmer can add, and he knows a Double Dissolution would give him eight seats in the Senate and four in the House, and would do so before Christmas. What can Joe say to that? Please?
He also shown himself to be a dill by staying silent over Gaza. Some of his cousins will have been killed there by now, and he is pretending it isn’t happening. He said he was ‘proud of my Palestinian heritage’ a year ago during the campaign, and though four hundred children have been shredded, children of his bloodline, he is saying not a word.
He should be advocating they be brought here as refugees and he is saying not a word.
No voter can trust a man like that.
He is dead in the water. He no longer has any chance of being Prime Minister. He no longer has any chance of retaining his seat. A Double Dissolution by October would finish him.
Or perhaps you disagree.
