Akerman's on. Sigh.
Should be interesting since David Marr is on as well and Akerman frequently labels the homosexual Marr the 'Queen of Fairfax' - ho, ho - the wit!
So moronic racing types are wanking on about Howard has form and Rudd doesn't. Yes, they're horses you fucksticks.
They're still going with the racing analogies. Far out. Where do they find these people?
Here Akerman goes! Efficient wore away the leader in the Melbourne cup so ergo John Howard will win. Hooray!
Marr: No one is really giving a shit about the campaign. Nothing much is happening.
Akerman: Mark Latham's back, weeeee !
Some woman: ?
Akerman: The RBA agree with John Howard because they said the cost of labour was an issue; Labor stand for higher wages, ergo they are evil and need to be killed like a nest of bull ants - quick get the can of petrol.
Marr: What about wage restraint for the high end of the market - eg chairman of Telstra.
Oh gawd, now they're throwing to the animated corpse of the commentariat Paul Kelly. Fucking hell hit the snooze alarm. He's faffing on in his slow and considered manner where he tries to make the interest rise a positive for the government. Actually I take that back. He seems to be a tad balanced this time.
Here comes Akerman: You have to say the IR changes by the ALP will result in lower employment.
The others: No.
Akerman: 98% of jobs created under WC are full time (no they're not you lying sack of crap).
Woman: Fairness test is suckful. Therefore AWA take up will be less.
Akerman: But 25k of the rejected apps for the Fairness test were cause they didn't get submitted in time!
Woman: Howard's fannying about on sorry was like 'I'm sorry your dog died Vs I'm sorry I ran over your dog. Thing is they promised they'd keep rates low now they are trying to say it's not their fault they went up.
Marr: Howard's aboriginal apology apt to this situation. Howard looks shifty and insincere.
Akerman: Wanking on about how we shouldn't be collectively sorry for fucking on Aboriginals. Now he's on about the Keating interest rates again (don't forget that people!)
Woman's name is Lenore Trenore of the AFR.
(Missed a bit cause I am playing Warlords)
Showing Howard lying on TV last week.
Barry: Superior Vs Inexperienced then is Howard's argument.
Akerman: It's great!
Marr: Rudd/ALP are polished.
Akerman: It's all spin! Where's the substance?! (where was Akerman on the Lib policies of the last 11 years?) Akerman thinks they won't be around to benefit from the education revolution. He's right. It's a generational change.
Lenore: Going for growth!? What a stupid slogan.
Barry looks at the winging wendy ad equivalent for today. Then the single seat targetted 15 second ads for the Libs that have no mention of Howard/Costello.
Akerman: All politics is local! (unless its the ALP).
Lenore: The Libs are campaigning on state/local issues that they have no influence on (eg hoons/vandals).
Now they're showing a YT ad of Howard pushing a disabled boy around in his wheelchair. Hilarious.
Akerman: There's more polar bears than you can shake a stick at ... (WTF?)
Mentioning the Latham thing. Akerman called him "Mark". Akerman is going on that there is no health or housing crisis (WTF? - try buying a house you turd). Akerman thinks most people under mortgage stress have second homes. Marr: tell that to someone who is under pressure. Akerman: Not that many people affected by the rise. Lenore: Agree that they will be risk adverse? Akerman: I remember Latham's diaries and here's all the crap he said against Labor. Weeee - see how I bought that up? I rawk.
Mention of debates between ministers and their shadows. Turnbull claims he's never had to compromise on his positions (ha! Gunns anyone, Kyoto?)
Lenore just kicked the shit out of Akerman on Climate Change; ie its important we get the best deal possible out of future trading/emissions but we can't take our bat and ball and go home if we don't get our way.
Now they're showing the Rudd / Chinese interview and Downers petulant response that he's a show off.
Lenore: How can you promise billions and crimp inflation
Marr: What about AWB? Where's that in this election?
Akerman: Some note from an oldiers home where Maxine McKew's mornos got canceled for lack of interest. No observation, just that. I wonder if Akerman afterwards spits it out or swallows it?
