And so the first inauspicious post for the Daily Flute. I created a webpage of the same name some years ago, but only could be bothered to do one issue. It's here
and it's only claim to fame is that I hinted that Steve Bracks might beat Jeff Kennett in the unwinnable election. Anyway enough old bollocks, let's see what's happenin' in da hood.
Howard Strikes Up The Band
Like the prat hasn't let slip his intentions during the Australia India test match by saying he probably couldn't make a trip to India for the return series as he "might be busy at the time". Still, bring it on and for your sake I hope people have forgotten:
The children overboard
The Bill Heffeerrunun vendetta
Reithy's phone card
Being a grumpy bastard at the rugby world cup final (no votes giving a cup to the Poms are there?)
See, even I have forgotten the litany of evil-doings from His Shortness. Hopefully old Costello will make his charge sooner rather than later because of the threat of Lord Turnbull upsetting the apple cart.
Anyway I can't be expected to expose my entire ideological stance in one go, but I'm sure you get the gist by now.
Latham Announces Lolly Fund
Don't give me any crap about any tax cut from His Shortness being a good thing. He has shifted the brackets just twice, once for the regressive GST, once for a couple of cans of fizzy pop. So it's about time Mr H. Will Latho take the carrot and match it, or do something wacky like put a bit of wongaloo into education? My predictions for Costello's splurge are:
More money for churchy Christian type things
More money for tanks and pop guns
A major initiative to talk about the aging population
A really big thing that will mean $2.50 a week to a certain sector of the community (a la baby bonus)
And more tax cuts
In essence, bugger all to create a better society.
