Like a frame from the movie ‘Pretty Woman’, I say to Joe Hockey and all the other cronies on the front bench: “Then stop spending vasts amounts of money….simple!”
The budget blowout is a Liberal disaster and once you stated doling out billions of dollars off your own back, from Australias taxes, you lost any credibility to continue with this accusational tripe about everything being Labors fault. Your budget projections blew out by 10b after you added the 9.9b that you, the treasurer of the Liberal National Coalition gave to the RBA, after Labor released the Charter of Budget Honesty before the 2013 election.
Your numbers reflected the amount Labor had revealed before the election but you had added the 10b to the budget amount to begin a truly insane attack, using the most loaded terminologies, to try and instill the fear into Australians that; Australia would go the same way that the US has. Is this why the Liberal National Coalition are still purchasing billions of dollars worth of faulty military craft from the yanks amidst the warnings of other countries? Johny Howard purchased flat pack Black-Hawkes that never worked, from the yanks too.
The Liberal National Coalition party have a truly narcissistic view of self, and with their continued abuse of Australia, Australians, they are liable to account for their actions.
I say that a petition to the Governor General of Australia to utilise section 58 of the constitution to activate the ‘Royal Assent’ and ‘Queens Pleasure’ powers and call for a royal commission into political corruption from the highest Federal levels, to the act of suitable candidacy for such a career in Australian politics.
I have a petition prepared and ready. I am just waiting to make sure that it is read in its entirety so that it makes the screening process. The idea is for a truly transparent government, where all are equally accountable and one that seeks to bring an end to the abuse of powers to call royal commissions, seeking to only serve personal and petty political vendettas.

TOM IGGULDEN, REPORTER: The Treasurer’s speech was sprinkled with omens of doom. “A recipe for disaster”, he called it. Canberra’s financial path is “unsustainable” with “record deficits and growing debt” driving what he calls a “moral imperative” for the Government to make major changes (Source – Read More).
