Conservative State Governments are a gift to Federal Labor!

September 16, 2012 at 4:43 am (Australian Politics, Commentary, Julia Gillard, pre-Keynesian economics, Tony Abbott)

The recent successes of the convervative State Governments in gaining office are destined to do a lot of good for Federal Labor in the next election.

The trend against Julia Gillard’s Government, I forecast, will come to an abrupt end in the polls.

Premiers: Ted Baillieu, Barry O’Farrell, Campbell Newman, Colin Barnett and Chief Minister Terry Mills will all prove to be a boon to the fortunes of Federal Labor in the coming election.

The Tory policies of sacking public servants will prove to be more than unpopular with the electorate.

As things stand, Julia, our PM, is in with a bumping majority after the next election in 2013.

Conservative leaders just can’t help themselves with their pre-Keynesian economics comparing household budgets with state budgets. Their policies won’t work and will lead to more unemployment – all the above leaders are not quite as bad as each other, but to some degree they are all tarred with the same brush.

I strongly suspect that Tony Abbott is turning in his bed at night — not in a matrimonial sense but in distress — at the pre-Keynesian antics of his State colleagues — Tony is a bit more enlightened in his views about unions and the working class.

Unless these State Governments pull their heads in we will be landed with another three years and more with Julia and her lot.

    George Megalogenis noted a little while ago that Keating’s change of fortune (as measured in the polls) came after the election of Jeff Kennett. History repeats perhaps.

    Today’s papers seem to bear out what I was saying yesterday!

    Wouldn’t three more years of Labour in the federal parliament be a good thing? You seem to doubt it.

      Antony, just trying to appear as impartial as possible! David
