| Author: EYE-BALL Opinion | 4th Mar 2013 |
I‘ve been waiting all morning for a copy of the transcript from the Gillard speech delivered last night to the ALP ‘rent-a-crowd’ she took with her to Western Sydney.

Some weeks ago amid the Obeid, Thompson and disaster poll data Gillard was given a warning – ‘turn things around before the House sits in March or we will boot you out’.Everything since then has demonstrated Gillard is aware her neck is being stretched.  This ‘Rooty Hill’ trip is her zenith … so much of Gillards future as PM now rests upon her performance this week.

A friend mentioned in passing that in recent days her public performances are not her usual upbeat self – they noticed in particular that her hair has even become disheveled … the part is not straight, not bouncy, and looks flat.

Gillard gave two interviews on ‘Today’ and ‘Sunrise’ this morning – both interview transcripts up available already … yet the speech she gave last night is not.

I went looking on YouTube to find the WSU speech … it came in four parts thanks to YouTube uploader Jane Boyer … and presented below: [Further comments below.]

Part 1: [9:43sec – Gillard speech starts from 1:20sec mark.]

Part 2:[10:00sec]

Part 3:[8:40sec]

Part 4:[3:26sec]

Many thanks to Jane Boyer … I know how much works goes into producing a quality YouTube upload.

Also – the ABC ran an extensive summary of the ‘election’ campaign style launch the speech felt like – link to that News 24 story here and includes video interviews …

In the 16 odd hours since Gillard delivered this speech, the media have reported ad-nauseam on the ‘spin’ and political message it delivered.   I gave up counting the promises it contained … will Australia listen or learn that this PM is a unabashed liar … she tells porkies with a poker face ranked with the best of them.

Her backup were the Ministerial desperadoes listed below … all introduced individually during Gillard’s introduction – the links provided are to the AEC 2010 election results for each of these current MP’s:

  1. Jason Clare, Member for Blaxland – Western NSW,  and new Minister for Home Affairs appointed a month ago – 67/33 margin,
  2. David Bradbury, Member for Lindsay – Western NSW, and Assistant Treasurer – 51/49 margin,
  3. Chris Bowen, Member for McMahon – Western NSW, former Minister for Immigration, and now Minister for Universities and Small Business – 58/42 margin,
  4. Anthony Albanese, Member for Grayndler – NSW, and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport – 54/46 margin,
  5. Bob Carr, Senator NSW, and Foreign Affairs Minister,
  6. Tony Burke, Member for Watson – NSW, and Minister for the Environment – 59/41 margin,
  7. Peter Garrett, Member for Kingsford Smith – NSW, and Minister for School Education – 55/44 margin,
  8. Greg Combet, Member for Charlton – NSW, and Minister for Climate Change – 63/37 margin,
  9. Craig Emerson, Member for Rankin – QLD, and Minister for Trade – 55/45 margin,
  10. Wayne Swan, Deputy PM, Member for Lilley – QLD, and Treasurer – 53/47 margin …

Gillard’s intros went on for a good 4-5 minutes with crowd cheering, clapping, waving – rock stars they ain’t  …she named another 15-20 ALP dignitaries in the crowd – all seated in front and the rest of the crowd were obviously an ALP die-hard rent-a-crowd put in place to present a Gillard team for the future.   There would be no disruptions … this had to go smoothly and the security was extremely tight.

Not one name on the above list of Ministers, has any real clout as an individual – what was noticeable was the absence of Bill Shorten … and the rest of the Victorian ‘handbag brigade’.

Another personal note was the tone Gillard used throughout her speech – we’ve all heard it before many times as she delivers a condolence speech in the House – delivered with all sincerity and a tone that appeals … but we’ve been here many times before … a switch-up to that screeching ‘chalk on a blackboard’ spine chilling tone that makes you want to switch channel is always only a heartbeat away.  When it happens all Australia wants to tip ice water all over her to shut her up, to throw a rotten tomato hoping it hits fair and square … we know her mood swings are scenario induced and even Hollywood producers and directors would have trouble dealing with our own ‘diva’.

We’ve heard it, lived it, and dealt with it … yet as this ALP Government marches toward its ‘death-camp’ type fate … nobody said it was going to be painless watching Gillard fall from grace – joyous yes … but she will never have to face and pay the price for her crimes committed against Australia as the rest of Australia does.

Gillard mentioned the ‘Mining Boom’ is far from over in her speech … absolute bullshit … she backed it up with the same Wayne Swan ‘stump’ he uses to ignite the hopes of the future – ‘The Investment Pipeline” … if only it were true …

Mr Swan is most famous for the ‘Dunce of the Year’ awarded him a few years ago, and most recently his backflip on a budget surplus promises during the 2010 election in year 2012-13, and the promised windfall revenues from the MRRT – you tell me why would anyone would listen to Gillard reading from Swan’s obituary failures … it was ugly.

The vision of Abbott helping to clean up Sydney,  getting his hands dirty speaks to Gillards misandry … why was she not out there showing she’s prepared to break a fingernail, to stand in some mud, to show just how Australian she wants us all to believe she is …

This woman is a puppet and the string links that pull and direct her on que is now thread bare and well used.

She cannot be reinvented again … her real persona has convinced Australia that she is toxic and to have to wait until September to be rid of her will be painful for Australia.  Her entourage represented the weakest bunch of ‘moles’ and all personally selected as members of her ‘handbag brigade’ – were there for their own political survival … it would seem the ALP have divided along NSW and Victorian lines, and the QLD’s in Emerson and Swan living off the crumbs Gillard throws their way, are looking equally desperate.

Another point of interest was Gillard never introduced one female Minister to the crowd.  It is not known if any were there – but their absence from Gillard’s roll call is significant.   Me thinks this was a ‘before you die’ type of wake …

We can only hope … and trust that the media lift their heads from the ground food scraps and begin to look above for the crap that is about to rain down.

The EYE-BALL Opinion plea for action:

Gillard’s Government is poison to this Nation … how do we get rid of her now?

The message has to be sent – there are some 14 million registered voters represented by 150 MP’s – 72 of which are ALP.    If each of these 72 ALP MP’s received an e-mail, a fax, a phone call, or a letter from all the people who want her gone with a simple message like the one below –  :

This is a protest message …

… do you think it might motivate caucus …

Please – send this message to as many and as often as you can – bombard the Caucus Members with a message so clear and with weight of numbers that it will force them to act.

You could also think about sending it to the Independents, Oakeshott, Windsor, Wilkie, and Brandt,  as well … Katter already votes with the Coalition, and Slipper and Thompson are a lost cause and their fate already sealed.

    The next ICAC hearings into McDonald and granting of Mining Leases is second half of April. This could well last past September. Can changing the leader of a rancid party, cure the ills? This is most true when Kevin 007 does not want to step up to the lectern. They really had a chance during 2012 to fix up the ethical dilemmas. The problem comes down to they don’t listen to the electorate but need to convince the electorate what to think.
    The bunch of them now want to change deckchairs on the titanic?

    The transcript of the PM’s speech finally came through …linked here ..

    The PM’s speeches will be part of her epitaph. Last winter she made that disgraceful speech in Europe take a leaf out of Australia’s book. She must own those speeches, as while written for her she has the chance to have them corrected, modified and changed even totally re written. As leader the buck stops right there.
    The 12th last paragraph of the linked speech is “A fight to stop the broadband roll-out being brought to an end.” Who wrote that, a bare faced lie? It sums up this government. No understanding of micro economics, just a grab for a headline delivered to party faithful. The opposition believe they will control the roll out cost better! They admit, it will not be the Rolls Royce model.
    Where the spending since GFC has been like a kid in a candy shop, most people believe the coalition are better economic managers.
    All Australians, know that Broadband is required. Before this ALP government got involved it was left to Optus and Telstra to sort it out, and their profit share or return on investment was impeding many other secondary industry developments. Such initiatives were why we voted Howard out, and Rudd in.
    The speech started out with the fact that a Western Sydney graduate of Sydney University moved to firstly study at UCLA (Stanford?) then settled in Silicon Valley to find fame and fortune. How about a decade ago these opportunities were not available? Is that message.io example representative of those who will vote come polling day?
    It is just touching upon the ALP major policies over the last 5 odd years, and preaching to the converted. It will hardly swing voters who are being crushed by lack of attention to microeconomics, who jobs are evaporating due to over inflated currency, and other costs. The second speed of the 2 speed economy. Those struggling in 1st gear.
    When Paul Keating aspired to leadership in 1991 he wanted his term to be likened to the oratorial fervour engender by JFK through envisioning the masses. For a short while he got away with it. He won his election in 1993, and got thrown out in 1996.
    Dear Prime Minister,
    Tell it like it is, and cut the crap. How will you get, industry competitive again. Your average voter is not an entrepreneur, they are struggling to make ends meet. They are paying more for their mortgages and there is never anything left over, for a rainy day or even a break from the daily grind. They fear their job will either be exported soon or they will be forced to accept lower incomes to keep their jobs as unemployment continues to rise.
    You really would do well stop talking and start listening.
    What is the point in selecting ALP faithful to listen to your speeches with canned applause? If you had opened up the doors to the public you would have been met with heckling and protests. You don’t dare hear the truth!
