  • how and where did the politician increase their productivity and what conditions did they loose.
    The extreme hypocrisy when they are only offering federal public servants 2.5-3% but only if increase their productivity and loose working conditions.
    LABOR SOUNDS and acts just Liberals but they are being real men and want to sack 12,000 people and hurt how many families in the process

  • Sounds like the tribal drums are beating for a revolution!

    No wonder they took the guns off us.

    They are scared because of what they are doing to us!

  • Kevin Rudd winds it back and Gillard winds it foward. As bad as the last party was.

  • They are not worth feeding. They are just lazy critters in every way. The mess made by Rudd, Gillard and Brown and their rotten cohorts is there for all to see. A disgraceful rorted expensive mess that will take damned years to correct! We taxpayers pay more than peanuts for them and what do we get, simple low lifes educated at nothing else but rorting!

  • The reported pay rise for these utterly incompetent labor party/green party and turncoat creeps is nothing but another rort. They have utterly stuffed our country right across the three cardinal areas of government which are 1. Administration 2. Policy and 3. Finance. They have singularly and wantonly stuffed these principal areas and the evidence is there for all to see. Sack them do away with them please. Time is running out.
