Airbus Albo’s Cost of Living Promises are Platitudes for Paupers

Promises from the Prime Minister about prioritising cost of living pressures are platitudes for paupers.

The PM’s response to rising anger at the Australian Labor Party’s poor Covid-flation navigation was to put a band-aid on the boo-boo.

Fresh off the plane from a visit with totalitarians in the US and China, Anthony Albanese is adamant he’s “getting costs down, and wages up.”

We’re also told that Labor is “strengthening the nation’s budget.”

Those are the media dot points, and every Labor member who has read the memo is citing them ad nauseum.

As “Airbus Albo”, bouncing back from meeting with the CCP and Joebama Inc, quickly posted on X,

Our jet-setting leader – surprise! – is currently in the Cook Islands for the 52nd Pacific Islands Forum.

He’s no doubt being “filled-in” and “constantly updated” about voter sentiment for Labor going where it always does, once the honeymoon is over: downhill fast.

This is a plausible reason why the Albanese government’s contentious Misinformation/Disinformation Bill has been shelved for six months.

Early feedback shows a united “no” from both aisles.

Given the “no” referendum victory, alongside revelations in the US that the government were policing speech via proxy, any bill like it might just disappear altogether.

Albanese cannot politically survive another big defeat.

Ergo, the bill is dead.

The Blame Game

Talking cost of living with acting Prime Minister Richard Marles (another Communist Chinese groupie), Today’s Karl Stefanic slammed the government’s script, saying,

“Every time you’re asked about this, anyone in your government, the same lines come out.

“I feel like you don’t get the pressure that Australian households are under right now.”

Marles, according to the Daily Mail, replied,

“Of course, we understand.” Labor is working the budget to “not contribute to the inflationary environment.”

He then blamed the LNP for inflation.

Marles completely ignored Labor’s “Yes, Prime Minister” role in taking Australia down lockdown lovers’ lane.

Firing back, Peter Dutton said,

“People are going backwards under this government; the Prime Minister doesn’t get it because he’s never here.

For the last 18 months, the Prime Minister’s been solely focused and absorbed by the Voice.”

“They’ve made decisions in two budgets which have made it harder for families and driven up inflation,” Dutton added.

I don’t disagree.

Contributory Factors

Labor are toting about easing cost of living pressures, while putting pressure on the cost of living.

Examples include pushing up electricity prices to end so-called “catastrophic climate change”, and bringing Gaia some “climate justice” via Net Zero Woke nonsense.

Additionally, the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) just raised rates because Labor has an ersatz open borders policy on immigration, pushing up demand on everything.

Instead of party-line platitudes, the Albanese government could immediately ease the cost-of-living crisis, by implementing these five policies:

  1. Limit immigration.
  2. Put a freeze on foreign ownership of residential land.
  3. Lower taxes.
  4. Reduce the size of government/slash spending.
  5. Put an end to useless and expensive virtue-signalling policies.

Since, historically, the Australian Labor Party does what’s best for the party, not the Australian people; don’t hold your breath waiting for any of them.

Australians are more likely to see a hike in taxation.

It’s doubtful the government telling taxpayers to tough it out, and tighten their belt, will do the same.

    I agree —stop all these stupid Labor policies NOW ! Who knows how high mortgage interest hikes and inflation thanks to mass immigration will climb in 2024 ?
