Two things about the coalition really scare me!

1. Abbott is going to reset the tax-free threshold back to where it used to be, which will take money out of our pockets and kill off part-time workers in this country, and

2. He says he is going to abolish the carbon tax without compensating those that have spent millions making them selves compliant with the current legislation!

That's two biggies that are going to have a massive impact on our living standards!!

I'm not sure Tony actually understands the real world at all!! he's living under Julie Bishops skirt!! urghhhhhhhhh!!

New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?

Looks like 60 minutes is taking Tony Baloney to task about his lies.

Not too many things make me happier than seeing that imbecile cringe and pull the silent trick when he doesn't want to answer questions.
Which is quite often but the media are so used to it they don't even bother with it anymore

Isn't that what she is planning, plus focussing on skills shortage areas or did I mis-hear her this morning on the news.

I think you spend too much time listening to dribble from Abbott and not hearing what she is saying



The issue has taken off because the Labor party pulled out sone stat that the increase in the growth of the 457s is faster than the growth of employment and are using it to justify the reduction of 457 approvals, the coalition wants it to continus as is, saying and rightly so that these foreign workers should be given an opportunity where Australian labour is scarce. And as I said above as long as it is kept to an appropriate level, that is the 457 approvals, I see no harm.

To respond to Bruce in the NRL thread: it is probably the single hardest loss I have had to deal with at Souths to lose Bully. Much worse than Sam Burgess as he didn't symbolise Souths as Bully did. I think a lot will underestimate just how much a loss he will be to Souths but I fully understand how engrossed he is with NZ and I think given that he will make the successful transition that others haven't.

Damn, it looks like I missed it, would have been nice to see, it is about time the media started focusing on him more.

Yeah when you vote for the Coalition you better realise that you are electing PM Rinehart. Abbott wants the asylum seekers to be treated worse than criminals but loves his 457s for every other foreigner. Obviously he doesn't care about foreigners taking Australian jobs. So why does he hate asylum seekers so much?

Gina will have her Aussies working for $2 a day like she always wanted, or she'll bring in a bunch of Indians on 457s to work her tax free mines up north for $1.50 a day. And Abbott will rubber stamp everything she wants.

Look at how unemployment rose within months of them taking QLD. Do you really want that in the rest of the country?

I find it funny that of all the whinges about Julia, the thing that had the worst effect on the Australian economy since 2010 was electing Screwman in QLD.

Abbott doesn't care about the low income erners. He just wants to get rid of the carbon tax as it does no favours to the very top end of town.

The libs would have you believe that we will all save $170 a year on power bills, that only half of what they have gone up. So we will still pay more and no compensation.


Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

Warning as to what will come if Abbott is elected.

Wait, replacing Abbott with anyone is an improvement.

Nothing more than a bit of window dressing - like what Labor is doing in SA

Not such a big deal now is it. Where are the cries of incompetence, the contempt of the voters...blah blah blah.

Don't live in Victoria so don't really care

However I will concede that I do feel like a bit of a hypocrit

It amazes me that the mods allow the name calling in this thread, when they come down like a ton of bricks at the mere hint of a name change for anything to do with the drivers or teams.

Time to level the playing field, guys.
