#LOLBolt's advice for Rudd: bring back WorkChoices

The media bullshit about leadership speculatio

Pure Poison IconThe media bullshit about leadership speculation has now officially jumped the shark, with the Southbank Jester Andrew Bolt in today’s Herald Sun purporting to advise Kevin Rudd how to win back support for Labor by adopting far-right policies:

WIND back the Gillard-designed workplace laws before more jobs are lost.

In what way is that not bringing back WorkChoices?

And the funniest part, after effectively demanding that Rudd bring back a policy even the Liberals are still claiming to disavow, was ending with this:

Sure, there’s much more I want done, but this is stuff Rudd could do and still claim to be Labor.

How does this man have any kind of job commentating on politics?

    Oh dear… That story Andy posted about “tree lovers are people haters”, titled “Green fury“, looks like it might not be quite what he thought it was.

    In an update, he quotes “reader Charles” who writes:

    I happen to know the person; I don’t agree with her on many issues, but I would vouch for her character. I am certain that there is a considerable backstory in this case. She is not a blow-in protester, but a local resident.

    Heavens above! Andy’s readers will be in severe cognitive dissonance at the idea there might be a “considerable backstory” to one of Andy’s click-bait filler efforts.

    Comments there appear to be on hold…

    From an excellent article at http://www.monbiot.com/2012/02/20/plutocracy-pure-and-simple/

    If regulations robustly defend the public interest, the profits decline. If they are weak, the profits rise. Billionaires and big business buy influence to insulate themselves from democratic control.

    This is plutocracy pure and simple. The battle for democracy is now a straight fight against the billionaires and corporations reshaping politics to suit their interests.
