and remember when Labor won the 2007 election with the "madate" to bring in the ETS, good old ****-head Abbott and those ****ing Greens had no issues blocking it, so **** the Libs, what is good for the goose is good for the gander

Talk about being out of touch...

Does Bill Shorten think his opinion is worth more than that of the Australian populace?
It certainly looks that way.



Yep....and I also firmly remember Abbott saying that if Labor stood in the way...he would go to a double dis!....bring it on I say!

Sorry LG.
While I don't believe all there is about Climate Change I remember Mr Abbott saying he was going to oppose just for the sake of it and he was opposition leader and his job was to oppose everything the government did.
He made up lots of lies and came out with some very simplistic slogans that are making him look like a total ****tard today.

He made his bed and has reaped what he has sown.
He is the PM and his government now has the same problem of getting things through as Rudd/Gillard/Rudd did.

He made a complete **** of himself and deserves everything they can throw at him.
He started the crap and now he has to swim in it.

**** Tony Abbott

If these were jobs for family or mates Numb Nuts Newman would make sure they stayed in this country.

http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/queensland-government-awards-big-manufacturing-contract-to-overseas-consortium/story-fnihsrf2-1226762851520

SCORES of new trainsordered by the State Government will be built overseas by a German-based consortium.

Bombardier NGR consortium was named as the successful bidder to deliver 75 new six-car trains from late 2015 for the Queensland Rail network.

Premier Campbell Newman would not detailthe cost of the project yesterday but said it was significantly less than it would have been under the previous government.

"They're not going to be built in Queensland, I ­acknowledge that," he said.

"The background of that was Downer at Maryborough were part of the process initially and they chose to withdraw from the tender process.

"Having said that, they have got contractual work from this government (for the new Sunlander and tilt train carriages)."

Transport and Main Roads Minister Scott Emerson said the new-generation rolling stock would be maintained at Ipswich at a purpose-built ­facility at Wulkuraka, employing 200 people.

The cost would be below the $13 million price tag first placed on the project, he said.

The trains would be suitable for use in the new underground bus and rail project.



Here's more for the don't get sick in QLD
http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/proposed-contracts-for-public-hospital-specialists-split-medical-fraternity/story-fnihsrf2-1226762881196

DEEP divisions are emerging in the medical fraternity over proposed Newman Government contracts covering public hospital specialists.

A draft contract was yesterday endorsed by Ross Cartmill, who has been negotiating on behalf of the state's 850 visiting medical officers - senior doctors who divide their time between the public and private sectors.

But bodies representing thousands of full-time public hospital specialists say the "unprecedented'' contracts will undermine the Queensland health system.

The Queensland branch president of the Australian Salaried Medical Officers' Federation, Nick Buckmaster, said the proposed contracts were "Work Choices by stealth''.

"They remove basic rights such as unfair dismissal and dispute resolution through the industrial commission,'' he said. "We have no information about how doctors' work hours or entitlements ... will change. Such colossal uncertainty is bad for the health system and bad for patients.''

Dr Cartmill said he believed most visiting medical officers would see benefit in the contracts.

Under them, he said, VMOs would individually negotiate a fixed amount for after hours and on-call work, eliminating paperwork.

"A lot of VMOs don't fill in the paperwork so they don't get paid for their night work,'' Dr Cartmill said. "Under the contracts, they'll negotiate a dollar value for their input and just get on with it."

He said the contracts also offered more flexibility for VMOs, who were not attached to an award, to take professional development leave.

"This process shows some respect industrially. It is my hope that we can therefore recruit VMOs in increasing numbers and retain VMOs,'' Dr Cartmill said.

Public hospital doctors are being sent copies of the proposed contracts for review and comment during the next two weeks.

The Australian Medical Association Queensland said an emergency forum for affected doctors would be held on November 28, to discuss the implications of the contracts, due to take effect from next July.

Unlike VMOs, full-time senior medical officers are protected under award provisions, but legislation, expected to be passed in state parliament this week, takes away their collective bargaining rights.



and more of the we don't give a rats arse about education
Pyne and the LNP should get real about and stop blaming others. Newman wouldn't sign Gonski so it's no one fault but his own
http://www.couriermail.com.au/news/queensland/funding-uncertainty-forces-struggling-schools-to-axe-literacy-and-support-staff/story-fnihsrf2-1226762872163

SCHOOLS in some of Queensland's poorest areas are laying off staff, including literacy coaches and behaviour support personnel, amid uncertainty over future federal funding.

Opposition education spokeswoman Kate Ellis has slammed the situation but Federal Education Minister Christopher Pyne said Labor had botched school funding and labelled their complaints as "embarrassing", saying they were criticising their own handiwork.

Queensland schools are yet to learn of their individual federal funding amounts for next year, despite the State Government announcing nearly two weeks ago an agreement had been reached with the Commonwealth.

The 2014 school year is just 10 weeks away.

Queensland Association of State School Principals president Hilary Backus said schools which had Low Socio-economic Status School Communities National Partnership funding end this year had the most uncertainty because it was unknown whether that funding would be extended.

Both Mrs Backus and Queensland Teachers' Union president Kevin Bates have confirmed some Low SES National Partnership (NP) schools have axed, or are planning to axe, support staff hired with the NP funding.

Axed staff include literacy and numeracy coaches and behaviour support personnel.

Forty-six state schools have Low SES NP funding finish this year, but more schools which started the agreement under a later phase had money set to come in until 2015.

Mr Pyne said under Labor's school funding model NP funds were rolled into overall funding and his Government had committed to providing the same amount over the forward estimates, but he has not answered whether that includes for schools which had NP funding end this year.

Ms Ellis said if Queensland had signed up to Labor's school funding model, loadings for disadvantaged students would have ensured schools got the money they needed and schools wouldn't need to axe staff.

State Education Minister John-Paul Langbroek said state officials were working with Canberra to get all the funding details bedded down

Just forgot who won what when, who jumped into bed with others when, what leader was when and when again

I don't particularly like either side at the moment but if all this crap about he said, she said; he blocked this so we'll block that continues we are ****ed. All it does is show the poor quality of people elected to parliament and that no-one appears to be there for the common good.

I've heard many say that all this argy bargy to and froing needs to stop by both sides but I read here constantly that members seem to be saying it's ok.

It isn't - it's absolute bull****!

I'm not sure who that question is aimed at?

I know that I haven't intimated or said anything of the sort and I don't think Trev is either.

I like how our side is not bending over like usual to them and actually taking a firm stance.

I feel we should be the strong country in the area, and not bow to others all the time whilst being worried about petty things and handing them out more money all the time.

I agree Simon, it will be interesting to see how this pans out, or is he building for a great big "I can't stop the boats coz Kevin recorded the PM and now they won't help us", shift the blame for a poor policy on this bit of politics
