They are a rabble......they haven't even bothered to get sworn in yet, yet the biased Media are critical of Labor because they haven't elected a new leader yet.

Why aren't they critical of Abbott for being too slack to get his arse into gear.

Is he going to back down over turning back the boats...... or start a diplomatic war with Indonesia?

Did he lie about a Budget emergency?

If not.... why hasn't he announced a plan to fix this supposed emergency in the first term?

OHHH  that's right  IT WAS ALL BULL- S HIT in order to scare the voters.

Why isnt he returning to surplus in his first term, as they repeatedly rammed down our throats.

Liberal Party are the party of surpluses and we will never have a deficit.

OHH  that's right

IT WAS ALL B ULL S HIT.

Extract from  .......

On asylum seekers, Malcolm Turnbull asks us to swallow the unswallowable
20 02 15
Richard Ackland

theguardian.com






..............................................................

This is what Turnbull said on Q&A:

    At its peak, under Labor, there were 2,000 children in detention. At the time of the election, when we came into government (September 2013), there were just under 1,400. Now there are 136. So we, with our policies, have reduced the number of children in detention by 90%.
................................

Leaving aside the fact that there had been a 31% drop in the number of children in immigration detention in the last three months of the Labor government (excluding Nauru), if we drill down a bit we’ll discover the agenda behind the Coalition’s virtuosity.

There are a couple of factors at play. One of them was the government’s eagerness to secure passage of the amendments to the Migration Act and the Maritime Powers Act. These were the amendments that changed the definition of refugee and gave the minister extraordinary powers to hold, to refoule, to decide the outcome of asylum applications and, in the process, to shred Australia’s international obligations.

The other was the fact that the Human Rights Commission’s report on the way children were being treated in immigration detention was lying around the attorney general’s desk from 11 November last year, undisclosed to the public for three months until 11 February, when it was tabled.

Both these factors drove the government’s decision to accelerate the rate at which children were removed from detention facilities.

Between October 2013, just after the Abbott government took office, and the end of August 2014, the Coalition had removed 24.8% of children from immigration detention – a smaller percentage than Labor’s last three months in office.

What is important about August 2014? That is the time the Migration and Maritime Powers Act’s amendments were being planned, largely in response to high court decisions that went against the minister earlier that year. The legislation was introduced a month later, on 29 September.

As we know, former immigration minister Scott Morrison used the children as pawns to get those measures through a difficult senate. He said children would be given temporary protection visas if the legislation was passed – even though he could have released them on bridging visas the day he became minister.

This is why the last hold-out senator, Ricky Muir from the Motoring Enthusiasts Party, voted for the amendments. Muir said it was a choice between a “bad decision and a worse decision”.

In the period the legislation was in contention and immediately afterwards the government released 651 children from detention. That was a reduction of 82.5% – not quite the 90% claimed by Turnbull.

This rapid response also enabled a chorus of government ministers to say the Human Rights Commission’s findings are “out of date”.

However, while the raw number of children detained in camps was going down, over the same period the average length of time they were being held was going up.

After the Abbott government came to office in September 2013 the average number of days children and adults were held in immigration detention shot up from 115 to 438 days (nearly 15 months) as at the end of last December.

In July 2013, when Labor was in office, the average days in detention was 72. Morrison was keeping adults and children in detention on average six times longer than the lowest average period under Labor.

The government is not reporting the release of any children from Nauru, probably because none have been removed.

It is not to be found in any departmental statistics, but refugee workers on the ground say that some of the children removed from Australian centres and Christmas Island have actually been sent to Nauru.

One thing we do know is that if someone goes to Nauru, even if they have to come to Australia for medical treatment, they will always wind up back on the phosphate outcrop.

Judging by the figures and the timing, the rapid removal of children from detention camps by the Coalition was much more to do with politics than humanity.

If this is Turnbull’s idea of progressive Liberal policies, don’t expect any serious changes should he ever steal the crown.
Report AFL February 20, 2015 7:48 PM GMT
So the Libs held the report for months while they desperately released bulk children so they

could attack Gillian Triggs and the HUMAN RIGHTS COMMISSION and say the report was out of date.

Prime Minister Tony Abbott has taken the extraordinary step of raising Australia’s threat level from ‘medium’ to ‘budget problems’, saying Australians should reconsider the need to focus on domestic political issues.

“Sophisticated, well thought-out attacks on Government policy are being planned as we speak,” Mr Abbott said in a press conference this afternoon. “We must remain alert to these threats and do what we can to suppress them.

“I have the full support of my colleagues who, I am sure, will do what they can to focus your attention elsewhere”.

When pressed further on the reasons for the policy, Mr Abbott referred journalists to a written statement which read “Alert! Alert! Alert!” Laugh

Kicking the Abbott



It is no exaggeration to say Tony Abbott is the worst prime minister Australia has had. To the extent that his brief and destructive leadership of the country is remembered, it will not be remembered well.

Abbott is a prime minister without a legacy. In attempting to defend one this week, he came up with not much: some jobs, a few trade agreements, an infrastructure project, a border protection regime founded on human rights abuses, a royal commission so compromised by bias its own commissioner had to consider removing himself.

Abbott governed for the past and the few conservatives desperate to continue living there. He governed against science and in contempt of the environment. He governed in opposition to social equality, in terror of reform. His was a government of fear and avoidance, a rolling sideshow anxiously avoiding the fact it had nothing to add and no idea what to do.

Abbott spent his time in opposition degrading the office of the prime minister. His was a campaign of debasement: a coarsening of debate, a running down of the respect once stored in the institution. Those who say he was a fine opposition leader do so in error. There is no victory in destroying what you set out to win.

On prevailing at the 2013 election, he placed on his head a small and tinny crown. He did nothing to repair it in the years that have passed since. Indeed, he added only to its dents and tarnish.

He treated law like a plaything. He made policy at odds with the country’s own constitution. He fought consensus and held out against change. He refused humility. He let run the island camps where women and children are raped and men killed. He turned in from the world. He mocked treaties. He failed obligations. He fed prejudice wherever he could.

He was a coward with reform. He left the tax system lumbering and unfair. He failed to articulate policy. He hectored the ABC, cowing it and becoming ludicrously involved in editorial processes. He shunned innovation. He craved distraction.

Abbott’s great fear, and the fear of those people left supporting him, is tomorrow. He is fearful of same-sex marriage. Fearful of an economy remade by climate change. Fearful of the fair distribution of taxes. Fearful of power as it ebbs away from the places where it was once concentrated. But tomorrow is always close; his prime ministership was always doomed.

Abbott is an experiment that failed. He is proof that Australia cannot be governed from the far right, just as it cannot be governed from the far left. He was the last hope and final holdout of a group of people wishing desperately against a modern Australia.

His time in the office leaves a hole in this country’s agenda. A period of incompetent stasis. Two wasted years we must now hungrily get back.

He will not be missed. He should not be praised. He was a failure selfishly wishing that the world would fail with him. We can only hope his like will not be seen again.

countrys going down the gurgler faster than a crap.

what hasnt state and federal government sold off. howard for starters sold off telstra and australias gold bullion reserves and now we have to find $1 billion in interest a day.

schools are fukced, you have to wait years for selective surgery ( they dont care a fcuk if you need a hip replacement, suffer they reckon ) no hospital beds. victoria sold off GIO  state electricity, state bank, tramways, trains, sold their highways etc etc etc and every fcuking roads a toll.
