The Enlightenment (Sky News)‏

I was watching Sky News (as usual) and on the final word section of PM AGENDA, it was revealed that Prime Minister Abbott is a big fan of this News Network Service and was quoted as taking real notice of the Presenters and Journo's on that show and others. I wonder if the Prime Minister took notice of Editor Paul Kelly or even economist Saul Eslake, when they both correctly commented last week on just why the this Coalition Government's first Budget is just not selling to the Australian people?

 I paraphrase these gents; Clearly the Government has fallen into the trap set by the economic wreckers of the ALP/Greens, that their Budget is simply a matter of Fairness versus Unfairness instead of focusing their message on the fact that the Federal Budget is designed to return the country to surplus, reduce and eventually end the weekly billion dollar interest bill, is designed to reduce the wasted taxpayer funds on populist policy on the run created by the previous Government (without proper funding) and to wean the entitlement dependent capable workers of the massive Welfare Tit!

That the message needs to be clear, reduce taxation and subsidise that lost revenue by spending less on middle class & corporate welfare and mismanaged welfare and socialised programs that currently exist. That the massive debt will only grow as the population does and if not constrained and controlled now, will cost the next generation dearly with a reduction in necessary welfare such as the aged pension and Medicare for those who truly need it.

This cartoon speaks of such an enlightened moment that I for one hope has gotten through to the Treasurer, Finance Minister and the PM whilst on their Winter break. They have the right tools and talent to turn this mess around but no one will employ them to do the job if they don't correctly target and effectively advertise their service and skills plus the need to fix the roof whilst the sun shines.

They must ignore the knockers in opposition and the useful idiots of the left wing media and just explain to the people of Australia that we ALL must tighten our belts, get of our arses, count our blessings and think about the long term future of the country instead of the short term personal gains. This is a duty of all fair dinkum Australians rather than a punishment for the sin of allowing another left wing and socialist aligned political party such as the ALP and Greens to gain power seven years ago.
