EYE-BALL Opinion on – GILLARD – is she the worst possible Leader for Australia …

GILLARD – is she the worst possible Leader for Australia …
Prime Minister Gillard went on the offensive calling for a budget surplus as a – ‘fundamental economic imperative’.   See her comments here– video linked.

This woman who would play at being a KING – because she ain’t or never could be a Queen – wants us all to believe her when she makes her political claims about the impending ‘budget surplus’.

In the vein of EYE-BALL GURU’s post yesterday on ‘Porky Joe’s misfire on Welfare’ – linked here – PM Gillard has ‘slipped on her own banana peel.

The cartoon image presented at right – [click to enlarge in a new window] – is from the Larry Pickering Facebook collection – linked here – more cartoons below, but first let us visit the Gillard master plan of ‘fundamental economic imperatives’.

EYE-BALL Guru’s post presented an extraction of Budget results over the last 15 years – the last six of those years included the lead up to the GFC and the three years since.   The last three years of Howard’s era produced some $77 billion of surplus’ – and the last three years of Labour Governments has produced in excess of $100 billion of deficits.  According to PM Gillard – she now thinks it is time to return to surplus – turning a yet unconfirmed current year deficit of $50+ billion into a surplus for the 2012-13 year.

Can you imagine the carnage the electorate faces under such a massive task?

What does GILLARD know about economics or finance – her qualifications as presented on her Parliamentary web page – linked here – is presented below to help answer that question :

Qualifications and occupation before entering Federal Parliament

  • BA, LLB (Melb).
  • Solicitor 1987-95; Partner 1990-95.
  • Chief of Staff to the Victorian Leader of the Opposition, J Brumby, MLA 1995-98.

There is nothing in her background that suggests she has any base education level on economics or finance not at Government level or at any other business level.

She will have improved her knowledge on such matters through exposure via her parliamentary career – but that base level of committee work experience in the field – or on the job training will never give her the credentials to allow her to speak about financial matters relating to RBA interest rate setting policies, or in any capacity that allows us all to believe that she knows what she is talking about when fronting the Nation to explain why Australia needs a budget surplus.

Someone wrote her speech – someone advised her about the surplus, and that someone or number of someone’s are political beasts looking at her poll numbers and saying that she needs to do and say something to reverse her poll numbers.

Earlier in the week is was pulling troops back from the un-winnable war in Afghanistan.  She reversed her previous and publicly stated decision to support the US and the Afghanistan cause – and now she has flipped on that undertaking as a political decision to win popularity.

Could there be a more naked lady anywhere in Australia when her motive is as transparent – and what an ugly sight that is if you were to look through the eye’s of my favourite cartoonist Larry Pickering.  See below for some of Larry’s work on the infamous PM.

This would be king represents everything that is evil and ugly about what the ALP has become.  Revisiting her statement on why the budget surplus is a ‘fundamental economic imperative’ – she said it would create the opportunity for the RBA to move on reducing interest rates.  If that is not an attempt to massage the RBA Governor’s balls – then foreplay in the public arena is dead.

What was she thinking?  Being surrounded with ass-lickin’ ‘yes’ men or women who want their charge o stay in office against all the odds – her judgement is impaired – her advisors are all looking for parachutes and will agree with her until the time is right for her to be dumped overboard just as she did to PM RUDD.  Be advised her assassination is imminent – who will replace her only time will tell but the way things are going – nobody really wants the ‘poison chalice.  Surely the Independents have to be reviewing her position and thinking that if she goes then so will they.

The greater problem is the other side is just as bad and perhaps worse in so many ways.   The GREENS have lost their inspiration and will go the same way as the DEMOCRATS after Don Chipp left.  There is a void in Leader who can inspire around the World.  Rudd had it for while until internal politics  and egos ruined it – Obama looked to be the next big thing but he ran into the mess George Bush left and the GFC crimped him from ever having clear water.

The UK’s Cameron – another leader who showed promise until he became embroiled in the Murdoch ‘phone hacking’ scandal.  Across in Europe – they’re all looking for lifeboats and have the begging cups out for America to bail them out.  Who’s left … nobody but greedy, dirty hand stained with blood types like Bill Shorten … no thankyou.

So the dilemma is – be careful what you wish for’.

To brighten up the day – have a look at Larry’s cartoons below – [go to his Facebook page and read some of his short stories – and the cartoons – it brighten’s my day …  and by the way – the mention of the assassination of GILLARD is not a physical thing – but a comment on her ousting by a coup.   How she ever got to rise to where she is defies logic – and is a reflection on our ability to judge character.  Our pre-selection process is to closed – and the background checks to lenient – enjoy the cartoons.

    Yes. Julia is the worst possibly leader for Australia.

    She simply does not understand communal good. She is power freak. An egotist.

    But on second thoughts Joe Hockey has frightened everyone with his lecture on the “Age of Entitlement”. What is his capacity?

    Ah! as Harrison Ford said in the Return of the Jedi, “I’ve been off the seen for 5 minutes and everyone is having delusions of power”
    Yes Gillard has no idea. Hockey is learning but is not dangerous and people’s career backgrounds are much too delusionary to get caught up in. I like Malcom Turnbull for his intellect not his banking background, in saying this he is a staunch republican, which I am not (I am not a monarchist as such either). Subjectivity needs to be seperated or included from your opinions to maintain a semblance of not “ranting”. Its too easy to argue against you!

    Well said Brian – so over the hype over ‘!st female Prime Minister’ – she will be the measure that makes sure it will be a long time before the experiemnt is tried again …

    As for you Woody Wood pecker – what and who are you – the green elf hiding in the bushes – come out – come out – where ever you are – what do you stand for – and how can you improve the world?

    Exposing one self in public can get you into a lot of trouble – then again – hiding in the bushes can only get yourself pissed on as you stay silent whislt the bigger man pees all over you …

    As for the Duchess – well as Larry draws her – she needs a good lay to humanise her as a female –

    Harry my poor disillusioned Dashound who doubles as a Canberra cornerstone and covets a little Slipper. Where were you when the Slipper came out of the closet?
    Now Harry your reference above to little Woody would not be in deference to how you feel about a little Slipper would (wood) it. Ah! nothing like a woody after a tough day in the house!
    Well Harry your sordid little secret is out. I suggest you stand aside and let one of your little pups take over your corner job in Canberra until you are either exonerated or found guilty of having licked little Peter’s staff when he makes his regular entrances.
    Ah! the way karma turns around is a wonder that would almost make you a spiritist.

    All this talk of ‘wood’ and ‘slippin’ and ‘lickin’ can only mean one of two things – you’re into voyerism on the homosexual nature – or you are jealous because your own sex life is far from what you want it to be –

    You know my background and reputation – I have to do the ‘slippin’ and ‘lickin’ to get the scoops – so when you polish the wood and tarnish the after effects – you take the fun out of what I do …

    Lossen up David – take a walk on the wild side once in your life – if you ain’t tried it then you’ll never know what you’re missin ‘…

    As for Mr Slipper wanting to watch his staffer shower – perhaps he is a ‘flat’ type and who cares what it is that gets the pump to work that gets him a rise – everybody stands for him in the house …

    Come on Harry you need to do better than that.
    Do you not understand the difference between biting wit and pedestrian sarcasm.
    Your response is more like that of snoop poop when it comes to getting the “scoops” from the school yard.
    Whilst everone maybe standing in the house, this little pragmatist would prefer to sit when around Harry and the Slipper. Interesting though that Mr Slipper has put greater emphasis on Australian politicians and that well known expression “BOHICA”
    It really makes you think! Bohica! ” Bend over here it comes again” !!! I always thought it was just the economy they were “fucking”.
    My apologies for the profanity but I could not think of a better word for what they are doing.

    Again and again – whilst you might think your witisms are relevant – you have been chided many times to attack the story content not the person …

    We can sit and exchange one-upmanships all day but how does it add to teh debate – ego trippin’ is your want and feeding into your stream of mild folklike banter is like swimming in stale piss …

    Let yourself free – walk away from your shackles – the bindings that constrain you are only as strong as your weakness’ –

    Harry, who are you the editor or what ? If you think your crap is contributary to the story content then you are in Disneyland not Canberra. Maybe the Slipper and the Rose is a Disney story and that is what I am commenting on, dopey! In the interim the “same old” obviously is boring to your readers, so if I have managed to get your hackles up then so what.

    Now you have a big chance to get to the “bottom” of the Slipper story,I suggest you start stirring up some “mud” and follow that passage to its conclusion.Once you have done this I would like to think we will have the “whole” download.

    So Harry, are you in Canberra or Disneyland, if you cannot figure it out then I reinterate you should stand down with the Slipper!

    Not really seeing the relevance of the gratuitously misogynistic cartoons.

  12. June 1, 2012 at 6:55 am

    The relevance is in the eyes of the beholder – you disagree in the portrayal of our PM in such manner – I don’t – I think Mr Pickering has caught the essence of the electorate’s frustration – She as Leader is fair game … I happen to believe that she is not deserving of the role – her manner in which she became the PM tainted her for life – she will never rid the stench of that assassination. Mind you – If Abbott was the PM – things would be worse …

    The fact that anyone tries to label criticism of our leader as misogony is dispersing of sensible debate. It is not the fact that she is female, it is the fact that she is our leader and a contemptuous of her constituency. Who said when we called the McMahon Government “the silly billy government” that title was misandrist. If I say Rudd was a dud, does that too constitute misandry?

  14. June 1, 2012 at 9:16 pm

    On many levels to say Gillard is a woman is a stretch – she has no mothe rinstincts, she does not believe in marriage, she is an athiest, to think that as a Ms – one might have thought she might have bought some compassion and femenist behaviour to the position – Australia has missed out all-round … I think Larry has her cartoon critique down pat … go the dildo …
