The leaks are out, the costings few
His dam support is rusted through
But its raining, raining in my heart
The polls they say are here to stay
If thats the case, we’ll have to pray
And its raining, raining in my heart.
Nah, this is dog-whistle to block out the siren-call of the Katter-mites to un-reconstructed agrarian socialists who until recently voted for the LNP Coalition, not realising that economic rationalism wasn’t just for other people.
How many thought bubbles make a brain-fart? And who knew you could play that dog-whistle with one?
I don’t give a dam.
What a dam good idea from Bubbles – and cane Toady’s can spread Right across the country?
Will Tony Abbott be forever condemned as ‘Tonliar’ if his government only manages to build 99 dams?
#well I looked and looked …. and conclude there is no Ruddmentum reference
Frankly my dear dog, I think they should combine their dental policy and their dam policy. It’s safer that way for dealing with the likes of the LNP.
I guarantee Rabbott will eventually water down this 100 dam malarkey.
I’m even suspicious about the number. My local radio announcer – the laziest journalist in town, with some stiff competition – managed a rising inflection every time he said it. Remember the $10 billion Murray-Darling Basin Plan? Like that.
Mind you, the local obsession is with the percentage in the Hume Dam, as if it were all Albury-Wodonga’s water supply, not one of the major sources for irrigators.
yes zut, and Fairfax will splash it across the front page when he does har de har
“Hold your water!”
A clear sign of Tony Abbott’s living in the past. Promising to build a 100 dams in the north is akin to Bob Hawkes promise to plant a million trees. Whose gonna have the energy to count them all?
Don’t think he will be able to shore up much support amongst the drys, but the wets are all on board.
Top Dog+++ All commenters, can you form a party ? Intelligence, logic, wit, and humour!! 🙂
Are the Dams core or non core promises (using the Howard vernacular, or is the Abbott government in waiting creating Brain F***s and non-Brain F***s?
Remember, we don’t get to find out “witch is which”, ’til after we elect them.
So let’s elect them “to find out”?
“Voting for Abbott”? It’s all like “How about a quick game of Russian roulette”?
