Hmmm, I prefer my interpretation.
Anyway, this was posted by someone in the Guardian forum re today’s news poll, and thought it was so good I would share it here:
_Newspoll day, polls for pollies _
Good news I suppose even though the notion of 46% of voters supporting the shambolic Liberals and backbiting Nationals appals me.
But to Newspoll and it’s patron.
_Mr Murdoch rents the Newspoll weapon - the Newspoll that disposed of the pugilistic Mr Abbott and custardly Mr Turnbull. _
Mr Murdoch must despair.
The greatest press baron since Hearst, confidante of presidents, prime ministers, sheiks and kings; richer than a dozen Trumps.
And, through his control over that selfsame amoral, faux charismatic and veracity challenged president of the most powerful nation on earth, he has more influence over world affairs than pretty much anyone else.
Yet hopefully there’s a great epic fail staring him in the face
Yep. Australia, 2018/19
And to think that Mr Murdoch, who believes that trickle down economics is a waste of trickle, has to rely on the following electoral cattle:
- A treasurer who can’t sell a NEG to his own tribe
- A human services minister without humanity
- A camouflaged defence minister
_- A communications minister who neither listens nor speaks coherently _
- A drought envoy who has trouble with flies
- A small business minister who has no business being there
- An invisible foreign minister
- A health minister displaying unhealthy designs on the deputy leader position
- An education minister struggling with the intellectual demands of religious education
- A Blimpish border protection minister long on ambition but short on tactics.
- An anti wind turbine energy minister huffing and puffing about 19th century solutions to 21st century problems
- A mining sourced environment minister who sees the environment only in $ terms while blithely insulting regional leaders
- A backbench seething with rebellion, hurt, dismay; contemplating their own dismal futures as they look at what they’ve done: dumped their two best electoral assets, their main donor, their nascent comeback in the polls, their only hope.
- A xenophobic Liberal Party fractured and filled with anger about, well, pretty much anything.
Led by a blustering Cassius of a Prime Minister who believes in unchristian divisiveness, the past and coal as building blocks of a modern civil society.
So next time you see a photo of Mr Murdoch looking like he’s been tearing his hair out feel some sympathy… for Australia.
