The Case for Julia Gillard
Julia Gillard's comments during the campaign.
Tony Abbottseems now to be basing his re-election campaign on this plot line. He is saying to the Australian people, look out, the baddies behind you - hiss, boo and whatever you do, don’t vote Labour.
"They are controlled by the faceless men"
THIS IS ELECTION SLOGAN IS TAKEN FROM THE1969(41years ago) ELECTION
WORD FOR WORD
NEXT IT WILL BE
REDS UNDER THE BED, ALL LABOUR VOTERS ARE COMMUNIST
As our economy faces labour shortages due to our ageing population and as it moves to a new level of sophistication to compete with the rest of the world, we’re going to need every Australian on board pulling their weight, rejoining the workforce, gaining new skills.
Writing off individuals and communities suffering from poverty just creates a dead weight for our economy to drag along, the opposition does not consider poverty to be worthy of consideration.
We on the other hand believe we must increase training.
The opposition proposes to dump trade training We see community organizations as major service providers and economic drivers rather than as recipients or distributors of charity, and coordinators of volunteers.
Not cheap labour
An opposition focused exclusively on thwarting the government is
unlikely to convince the electorate that it is worthy of government.
The parental leave scheme announced by the Liberals mean that
some children are worth four times as much than others.
