PM pencils in September 14 for the election

By johnboy - 30 January 2013 73

Prime Minister Gillard has just taken the very unusual step of announcing the date of this year’s federal election.

It’s to be September 14 which will give our public servants something to be going on with.

What’s Your opinion?

So why the early call?

People who cannot vote on Saturdays for religious reasons can always do a pre-vote or postal vote. No big deal.

Julia was wearing thick glasses – is that a first? Made her look as though she was wearing one of those Marx Brothers glasses/nose combos. She has some semite-ish honker! Which made Julia’s choice of Yum Kipper day for the election even a tad poignant.

Faark… I’d rather shove myself back in utero for the next 8 months.

Anyone know a female Asian doctor?

You know I think this might be a clever move (for once) from Gillard.
1/ Abbott is even showing up Zed with his lethargy to get going after holidays.
2/ Even the mainstream media is getting thoroughly jacked off with Abbott’s refusal to answer anything he doesn’t want to.
3/ It forces voters to face up to the fact that on 15 September this joke of an alternative could actually be our Prime Minster, and therefore will give a rather different perspective to every single thing he does from now on. Including, according to twitter, refusing to take any questions after his response this afternoon. (Might as well just post a bloody YouTube clip!)

Plus one.

Anybody who votes for not only a halfwit, but also a half retarded religious fanatic who thinks women being abused is a good thing, should probably be put down.

Wow, you really are a simple, petty little boy aren’t you!

I think she looked quite attractive.

what’s the fuss with calling an election now?

its not as if we don’t know the date of the next ACT election.

I can ignore the crap that politicians and the media will spew out over the next eight months and focus on who to vote for just before 14 September.

Maybe if you could be a little more civil or are you just venting your spleen befor Labor’s new offensive comments legislation kick in.
Please supply proof that Abbott said “women being abused is a good thing”

When did Tony Abbott state that he thinks women being abused is a good thing?

I’m totally down with this.

It gives the Opposition 7 months to come up with policies; it gives a definitive end date to this frustrating political cycle and it means, from this point, Abbott may actually start answering questions – instead of 1) walking away 2) parading his daughter/wife/Chief of Staff around to answer puff questions about his character. It’s a smart move. And a religious holiday that most wouldn’t be able to locate on a calendar .. please.

So when does gov’t go into caretaker mode and cease buying things, issuing tenders and contracts etc?
How does this affect the people and businesses that carry out said activities?

You might as well forget Parliament for the rest of the year, it will just be a shit fight with zero productivity.

Unbeliavable.

The combination of the Rabbits promise to sack 20,000 Pub Servs, and the acknowledged downturn in business during political campaigns, does not auger well for the local business scene during the next 9 months.

We are not being well led.

Errr….. Let me see,

1. the Launch/Launch on the weekend? Sure there wasn’t much happening earlier in the month but it is January FCS!

2. You reckon the PM does any thing/answer anything the media wants all the time?

3. Or we could continue with the joke we have right now…dear lord not another 3 years of this!

Anyone who continues to support this misogynist naming (oh, except when its her other half), mind changing (No carbon tax/definitely a surplus) government may also need their head read.
