Barnaby Joyce is a Queensland LNP politician I’d bring (along with Cory Bernadi) to NZ in an instant. Refreshingly non-PC Mr. Joyce isn’t afraid to beard the leftist jackals in their dens. Where are such politicians in this country?? Barnaby write articles for the Australian Conservative blog now and again, and his latest is a beauty. Some of the points he makes-
- South Korea, using our coal, can provide power cheaper to their citizens after an 8,300 km sea voyage than we can with power stations in our own coal fields.
- aren’t the solar panels doing a great a job. In Canberra last week it was revealed that they would add $225 to the average electricity bill, and that the Government’s proposed carbon tax would raise them by a further 24%.
- We borrowed for ceiling insulation and burnt down 190 houses and 4 installers died.
- We borrowed for aimless $900 cheques as we decided that somehow imported electrical goods to Australia would reboot the US economy.
- We borrowed so much that we are now 170 billion dollars in gross debt. We are told not to worry about gross debt, its net debt that counts. Well try that out on your local bank manager.
- Since the election, the Labor-Green government has borrowed an average $1.6 billion each week. Every fortnight that amounts to three new major public hospitals or the inland rail from Melbourne to Brisbane. Not bad going for a country that can not keep its pensioners warm
- What is our current solution to the very real problems becoming more and more apparent at the bottom end of the lucky country? Well apparently it is gay marriage. Yep I am sure that will warm the cockles of their hearts, if not their living rooms, that our nation’s wisest are going to engage in hours, possibly days at the end of the political year on gay marriage. Then when we are finished with gay marriage we may have enough time to engage the remainder of our time on euthanasia.
Heh heh- Great stuff Mr. Joyce. Y’know we have the same lunatics running things into the ground here in NZ. Read the full article here.
