AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albanese is pathetic, scrabbling to find any sort of relevance. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP He is right. The Liberals have not achieved anything. Look at robodebt, water, climate change, NBN, bushfires, cost of electricity. The list goes on and on. Totally useless mob.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Not a minor mistake. 60 billion we are talking about. It's disgraceful time for the Libs to go. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP And Elmer Albo Fudd could?😂😂😂😂 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP its not stinging its laughable. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Spot on AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP If Labor ran the economy we’d be in debt up to the wazoo and China would own the northern states. A stinging attack from this limp wristed goose is like opening a window and letting the breeze waft in. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP It’s tricky for him trying to get a bit of limelight at the moment. I think it would be more productive, in regards to his popularity, for him to be supportive.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP The idea that LNP are good economic managers is now completely out the window. They have failed miserably AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP If it was Labor running the country we would be at least $60 Billion over budget. Albo, Bowen, Swan would bring that Labor word back ‘ Fiscal management’ you bunch of no hoping floggers✊

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Stinging ? More like boring as batshite whinging as normal ! AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP the priif is in the data but you Murdoch trash wont dare look at that. What was the government debt in 2013? what is it now? How many new hospitals, universities, highways, public housing blocks been built in that time?

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Really Anthony. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Interesting that Albo believes all ATO employees are LNP voters. Surly all of them aren't that smart? AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP He has a point. Stop kicking own goals guys. Shit. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Ummm... Us Albo scraping the bottom of the barrel here?.. In an absolute unpredictable situation the country doesn't loose as much money as first predicted... And this is bad!... Let's go find out what Albos predictions were in March.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Anthony albanese would be correct. They couldn't organise a root in a brothel. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Pot calling the kettle AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Nice use of an old saying Albo, hope you're not absolutely correct though AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP It could be seen from space? That is a harsh criticism of an independent treasury.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Is this today’s joke AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Ah AlboMP, Australia’s equivalent to Joe Biden. Get back on your meds. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Stinging attack.....the bath water too hot?

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP I’m surprised you could remember to put pants on each day. Sit down, take a breath and let the real leaders do there thing. There’s a reason why ScottMorrisonMP is Prime Minister and your not.... Remember that. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP ScoMo & FryDo turn the tap on full blast to nourish the nation, then turn away to focus on the optics, when the bath overflows they congratulate themselves for making a waterfall during a drought! Hey, LNP ‘You spin me right round, baby right round, like a record baby...’

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Anthony Albanese says Labor supports the Corona Virus Inquire BUT Then attacks The Morrison Govt for upsetting the Chines Govt? AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP So far Albo even their worst mistake made us money 😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂 gotta love Scomo and his team 💙💙💙🇦🇺

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Says one of the big spending Labor wankers. If he was PM. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP So would Albo be happy if they didnt mention it? Or that there wasnt a saving? AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Who ? Lol you fake news types make me laugh , go pound sand

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Exactly what I said about Labor two years ago. 🙄 Albos speech writer must have written it down. 😉 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Yeah ok Anthony. Any further details to add, including a positive solution? Or is just more vacuous nonsense. You continue to placate your ever dwindling, petulant base. This is an incredibly pointless endeavour. Surely you can see this, surely.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP if liberal cant run the country,labor will be far worse. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Well Albo is true .. he left out one person Dutton ... Who let a boat through the borders and cause a great problem AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo is the greatest assett the Morrison Government has next to Shorten both out of touch both incapable of holding the office of P M , they always talk rubbish never a word of encouragement, never a word of support, just total negativity permanently, we are all sick of it.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP What’s the saying. Pay peanuts get monkeys, only we are paying stupid $$$ for these monkeys victa810 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo is absolutely 100% right. What an incompetent lot the LNP Government are. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP if the labor party was administrating Australia duringCOVID pandemic, Australia wiould be second Italy and England! Death soar up to the top five around the world! Know what Labor party is and was playing games together.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP I'm surprised Albo has time for this between him and Andrews sucking off the CCP. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP And he’s spot on... AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Yeah , no one cares , I haven't seen a more ineffective Opposition leader than Albo. He's a sad joke.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Miscalculation my ass! What’s wrong with everyone! This is a calculated govnt encroachment on yet another independent govnt department. They are using treasury as a cost cutting exercise and blaming them at the same time. Classic ScottyFromMarketing 101 JobKeeper Auspol

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Pipe Down! 'Turkey Neck' AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP He really needs to pipe down for a few months. This looks ridiculous and frankly, embarrassing AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Awesome so keep it in for the tourism industry specifically closed down due to intl border closures. Thanks

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Peck peck Pigeon Albanese imagine the mess if you had of been in charge. Mr 29% well I guess you need something for your pigeon chest to pump up on. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP How dare the government save $60billion!!! Very irresponsible I reckon 😁

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Hey, the media with 'honest views', usage of 'attack' shows your stand clearly AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo is like one of those “up and coming” sportsmen that look like they might be something special but when they actually get into competition are a disappointment. Albo is a bench player at best.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP That's misleading since that every time when Labor has been in power debt expands and so does crime because Labor always loves refugees AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP If that is the case for the Morrison government; I think we could say that the Labour government wouldn't know what a bath is. . . but I think that is obvious from the fact that they stink so badly.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP THIS IS SCOTT MORRISON'S FORM AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP WHAT FIREFIGHTERS THOUGHT OF SCOTTY FROM MARKETING. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP So says this Moronison. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP How dare the country not be an extra $60 billions in debt. 🙄

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AnAl - time for another massage? AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP The Prime Minister and Treasurer are blaming businesses who applied for Jobkeeper in error. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo as a staunch liberal man I’ve always had respect for you. I thought you have always been a decent guy. But this is rubbish. I think even you would be disappointed with it. You’ve let yourself down

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP I think Albo needs to work on his metaphors. It’s not 1957. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP How rude. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP When is the government going to have a press conference with lots of details about how they are going to rebuild our economy? Lets face it, both sides are just as responsible as the Chinese for getting us into such a dire situation.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP What a complete tool of a man, preach what really happened not crap AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP For once I am happy they fucked up the figures ,it means less for us to pay back 👍 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP This is you Albo 😂🤣 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP What AlboMP forgot to mention was that Treasury made the error, not the government. Nor did he mention we have SAVED $60b on estimates, which l think is a fact that should be lauded, not lampooned. Thank goodness we have Scott and Josh on the levers. Liberal

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP That's a bit rich from the party of Whitlam, Cairns, Khemlani et al. Australia would be further up shit creek with Labor. Just look at commie Dan in Victoria. Melbourne is fucked. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP The bureaucrats and government didn’t make the mistake, it was the information input by the business owners. Albanese looks a fool and talks like one. Very disappointed by labour’s political attack. It’s in our favour FFS!

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP desperate for relevance. If Labor were running the show we'd be sold to China immediately. Their modus operandi is endless debt. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP 😅😂🤣 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Pretty sure no-one was Stung by eachwayalbo

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Says Albo, who wanted to bail every single business out. What an idiot. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo has fond memories of 1989 - the LAST Labor govt surplus. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo shouldn’t waste his time where he has no expertise and go and pull Joel Fitzgibbon away from treason like comments!!

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Ha ha. A stinging attack from each way Albo? Turn it up. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Clearing Albonese failed maths crayons... its under budget which means we did not spend as much as we thought we might need too. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Is Labor trying to lose the next election too. Between slagging the PM on China issues to bagging a better result. What has happened. That last election result has really took its toll on them.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo running off at the mouth again...run a bath and submerge his head into it for all our sakes!! AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Well deserved too. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP iimm dammnn surreee u willl gett $$$ frmmm CCP forr tryin to playyy diss dirtyy chippp politicsss but notee ppleee rr more intelegent nowww n stronggg suportt forr proud PM ScottMorrisonMP sir

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP To be fair the lnp have failed every arithmetic test, including failing to add spill numbers. We're just not getting value for money from those public subsidies to private schools. cpc8 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP maybe they are at the trough with the tap dripping for trickled down because they don’t understand what a tap is

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP couldn't lie straight in bed AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP 'Pot calling the kettle black'. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP you cant get your own front bench to get on the same message. KK cut immigration some no body increase. The Australian people know who can manage a crisis and it aint your bunch of flops

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Why is the headline leading into what Albo said and not what the Coalition government did? The LNP made the biggest economic accounting error in our history. 60 billion. $60,000,000,000!! If this was Labor, Sky and the rest of the media would be calling for their heads. auspol

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Where's Labor's condemnation of the disgusting bullying tactics coming from China. We've got more support from 116 countries than what Albo and the Labor/Green's. Where's their moral outrage in our defense. ScottMorrisonMP is behaving like a strong leader. We should be united.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Can’t handle the fact that now there’s more money for the government to spend on boosting economy. Let’s see how quick he wants it wasted on following the science and green energy. He’s a fucking Oxygen thief perhaps they can give 2.7 billion to Vic so we don’t borrow from China.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP That would be an accurate assessment as far as I'm concerned. AustralianFires AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Computer models are so reliable. NOT AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP That's laughable from Elbow 🤣 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP That's not what the voters say.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP What a disgrace this each way Albo is. Look at it like this, Albo should be delighted with this miscalculation. Australia is better off by near half the estimate. As an australian I am, it is positive, we should celebrate Albo then again Albos bend both ways. Smile Albo 😁 smile

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Oh please. Let’s not choose between Liberal and Labour. They are all politicians tainted with the same incompetent brush. Labour blows $4 billion on pink batts and Liberals blow $billions on Manus island. We need laws to make all politicians accountable for public funds.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Albo needs to stop ‘flapping’ his gums! AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP At least the $60b was in our favour....labor would have been looking for another $60b AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Bilbo is irrelevant AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP RICH coming from Labor

JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Poor EachWayAlbo once again clutching at straws 😂 🤣Jobkeeper is coming in under budget Yes under budget That’s a great saving for our economy. Does Albo actually understand what’s going on? auspol skynews AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Who is Anthony Albanese? Seriously he has been a skid mark stuck to Scott Morrison’s behind for 3 months now he comes out and criticises ScottyFomMarketing ? He waved this through parliament then agreed to a shutdown. It’s as much on him as Morrison. Shut up and resign fool.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP ALP should know....they’ve never run a good economy! CedarAndrews AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP has always been a flip flopper... Not sure if tomorrow morning he will remember what he is talking today! Just playing dirty to get some screen time

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Oh yeah, really stinging. FFS, talk about an opportunist. Keep it Mr 22% er AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Is Albo talking about himself again? The only thing Labor support are their mates in China! What grubs Labor are! SeanBradbery AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP How right he is.

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP That ok ,each way Albo can’t run his party. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Josh the bionic $60,000,000,000 man should be fired immediately. A treasurer who can’t add up ? WTF !!! The Liberals have no idea with the economy or even adding up !

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Wouldn't it be better use of Albanese to concentrate on reigning in Dan Andrews from signing Belt and Road Initiative? That would help the community. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP That’s rich from someone who’s never run anything. AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Nice work ALBO stick it up these PRICKS BetterMoneyManagersMyArse

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Obviously testing the water. Well, is there transparent scrutiny of elected officials? Is that consistent with a western democratic nation or are we being slowly boiled as dumb frogs...? AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP BWA HAHAHAHA,,,,,,, Albo,,,,,,,, AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP

AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Thats very unfair......anyone can make a $60b mistake 🤣🤣🤣 AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Can't wait to see your 'commentators' defend this tonight 😂🤦‍♂️ AlboMP JoshFrydenberg ScottMorrisonMP Ha ha ha... good one. Flip flop Albo couldn’t run to the front gate....oh, and be careful, Shifty Bill is after your job.

Scott Morrison’s secret plan to save Australia from economic ruin | Sky News AustraliaA leaked draft of the National COVID-19 Commission manufacturing report has detailed the key industries Prime Minister Scott Morrison has been advised to target “immediately” to unlock billions of dollars save Australia from economic ruin.\n\nThe interim taskforce report – obtained by Sky News Political Editor Andrew Clennell - reveals the gas and manufacturing industries will be the Coalition’s major focus.\n\n“We need to be decisive and begin immediately to create an Australian gas market that delivers globally competitive results,” the report said.\n\nThe report also calls for the creation of a “competitive domestic gas market”, including \nremoving barriers to supply, building the bridge of supply in the near term, lowering the cost of pipelines, completing then network of pipelines to markets.\n\nFocusing on the energy industry is predicted to create up to 170,000 well paid direct jobs and up to 800,000 indirect jobs which the report predicts could generate between $10-20 billion in direct GDP.\n\nIt would also help “support the reskilling of many of those affected by current pandemic” and diversify the economy.\n\nBy 2030, up to 412,000 new jobs could be created by boosting gas alone.\n\nThe report also mentions the need for a new Manufacturing Board to be set up under the Industry Minister to develop a 10-year policy plan on manufacturing for annual review.\n\nIndustry Minister Karen Andrews’s office told Sky News the new taskforce could “stimulate the sector” and grow domestic manufacturing.\n\n“The National Covid Coordination Commission established a manufacturing taskforce to develop ideas that could stimulate the sector,” she said.\n\n“Any suggestions made by this Taskforce are to the NCCC for consideration and not from the government. Any final suggestions from the Taskforce may feed into the work being done across a range of portfolios, led by the Industry Minister, to grow Australian manufacturing.” All Scott Morrison needs to do to save the economy is get his head out of his rear end. So now Morrison supports Electric Cars.😆🤣 after mercilessly criticising Bill Shorten policy, he now does a massive backflip. Morrison is a deceitful, dishonest, lying hypocrite. ausol liarfromtheshire ScottyFromMarketing ScottMorrison Draft is just a draft. As usual stuff up will begin with blow-up costs, environmental stops, land rights and so on. As usual.

Albanese calls on McCormack to 'reflect' on 'entirely inappropriate' climate change comments | Sky News AustraliaLabor Leader Anthony Albanese has called on Deputy Prime Minister Michael McCormack to “reflect” and “retract” his “quite extraordinary” comments on climate change.\n\nAfter unveiling the government’s support package for local communities, Mr McCormack made a remark saying “a lot of people I know set their hair on fire about climate change”.\n\nSpeaking to the media on Friday, Mr Albanese called the comment “entirely inappropriate” and said “we need to be very careful about the language that we use”.\n\n“When it comes to climate change, it is real, we do need action,” he said. \n\n“The government has conceded that climate change was one of the factors in the devastating bushfires\n\nImage: News Corp Australia\u002F Jane Dempster AlboMP M_McCormackMP AlboMP M_McCormackMP I dont know - I think M_McCormackMP 's comments are unremarkable.

Vic government 'cozy up to China' as investment deadline approaches | Sky News AustraliaSky News contributor Caleb Bond says the Victorian government's pro-China stance 'is entirely in line' with their behaviour over the past few years.\n\nThe Australian is reporting “Victoria is locked in critical final stage negotiations with Beijing over investments worth billions of dollars at the same time as its Treasurer has savaged the Morrison government’s ‘vilification’ of China over trade and the COVID-19 pandemic'. \n\nThe deadline for Victoria to sign an investment roadmap, which ties the state to the communist giant, is just weeks away. \n\nMr Bond said 'the fact that the Victorian Labor government would still be pressing on with the Belt and Road under these circumstances is ridiculous”.\n\n“For them to criticise the federal government for being one of the few powers in the world actually happy to stand up to China at the moment is also ridiculous”. \n\nMr Bond also said the ALP were having difficulty maintaining a clear unified line held by all party members. \n\n“They’ve got the Victorian government saying we want to cozy up to China, they’ve got sections of the federal Labor party saying we need to go hard on China … and then you’ve got people like Kim Carr in the federal labor party saying we have to go soft on China”. \n\n\n Caleb Bond.......... 😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆😆 Nothing worse than appeasement.

Gas-fired rebuild 'polluting and dangerous', green groups warnEnvironment and renewable energy groups have condemned the Morrison government’s championing of gas as a central pillar of Australia’s post-pandemic economic recovery Don't you mean the spivs in the renewable energy sector?

A bunch of green covered communists are whining, normal people are cheering because we know that the global warming hoax is nothing but a globalist scam.

Federal government 'has very wisely declined the Belt and Road initiative' | Sky News AustraliaLiberal Senator James Paterson says clearly the Victorian Labor government 'has no expertise on foreign policy' and should instead 'stick to the many issues they've got on their own plate'. \n\nOn Thursday the Victorian government’s links to Beijing were questioned by the federal government amid Australia’s trade tensions with China.\n\nHome Affairs Minister Peter Dutton raised concerns over the state’s involvement in China’s Belt and Road initiative.\n\n'Victoria needs to explain why it is the only state in the country that has entered into this agreement,' he said. \n\nMr Paterson told Sky News host Chris Kenny instead of engaging in this matter, the government should look to 'restarting the Victorian economy' and 'getting kids back in the classroom in Victoria'. \n\nHe said the federal government 'has very wisely, in my view, declined to participate in the Belt and Road initiative'. \n\nImage: News Corp Australia Australia is run by the Queen UN And China what say does Australia really have NOTHING Good to see credlin exposing DanielAndrewsMP china visits each year and acting like a CCP agent.
