  • Yes indeed. They fooked it up from day one! And their disgraceful track record of this now utterly defunct, wantonly wasteful labor party tell me they will be gone come the national election - and deservedly so. I would in particular like to see Gillard, Abanesi, Roxon, Combet, Bowen, Garrett, Swan, and the rest of her damned communist left of left wing fabian society comrades lose their seats. They disgust me with their proven incompetence and abject stuffing our beloved country Australia.
