Your vote might just be worth something after all

The Australian Independent Media Network

Rudd Abbott

News.com.au have published an excellent and timely article Federal Election promises, cuts and what they mean for you by Sarah Michael which briefly examines Kevin Rudd’s and Tony Abbott’s election promises and how they would affect the average voter. The article deserves exposure. It doesn’t appear to be receiving a great deal by the looks of the Most Read Stories section of news.com where it hasn’t even entered the Top Ten even though it was published some seven hours ago. It is doubtful too, that hundreds of thousands of social media users will know the article exists because of the huge (and justified) anti-Murdoch sentiment: people – again justifiably – are deserting his tabloids in their droves.

Subsequently, for those thousands of readers of this site I have reproduced the bulk of the article below. Here is what you will get with your vote:

  1. Front page of The Australian said it all and summarised the last 6 years under
    Labor domination.
    -Craig Thomson confirmed as a crook ( nothing new there)
    -personal files of Ms Gillard seized by police in relation to AWU fraud
    -Rudd will be lucky to hold 2 seats in Qld
    Do all smart CW’s detect a very negative pattern here ? Why Labor vote
    is in a massive slide.
    Or is it you just don’t want to get it?

    Yep, newspapers are still full of shit 😉

  3. Sorry to hurt you with the truth.

    Here’s a little truth

    Instead of waiting until the scheduled court date, another mention was requested of the court on Friday 30 August by the prosecution. This request was granted and the mention was held the next working day, which was Monday 2nd September — yesterday, at time of writing.

    There’s something rotten in the state when a court case can become so politically corrupted.

    We have ashbygate, the judge found this to be politically corrupted, and murdoch, who has campaigned openly for the opposition, can ignore this completely.

    We have Thom(p)son, who’s prosecutors plead for a ‘mention’ that reveals nothing and tells us nothing, in the final week of a federal election, so that murdoch, who has campaigned openly for the opposition can run a damaging smear, again.

    And we have a Victorian police seizing files 20 years later from a person who has no evidence of anything against her, in the final week of a federal election, so that murdoch, who has campaigned openly for the opposition can run a damaging smear, again.

    Seems legit 😯

  4. voyager,
    craig thomson ,has been found NOT GUILTY of the charges laid against him,in a court of law,only by the hate and smear campaign against him by the murdoch hate machine,,
    UNLIKE BROUGH, who was charged with trying to bring down a government for his personal gain,by JUDGE RARES,now you tell me who the crimanal is,

  5. voyager must be a catholic, thinks he can say and do anything, and go to confession and confess all his sins. then thinks all is forgiven. just like is leader abbott.
