Word Of The Day

16 March 2015

When Julia Gillard was our Prime Minister, everything was about “moving forward”.  Every speech she made used the phrase ad nauseam. 

Every political leader tells us about “challenges” – in fact NOBODY has problems any more, to be solved.   We all have challenges to be overcome.

And now we have “conversations”.  Every Cabinet Minister, including the PM, tells us of conversations they are going to have with the Australian people.  As in “Are you going to change the tax system?”  “That is a conversation we’ll have with the Australian people”.

I’m not sure I want a conversation with Tony Abbott – not even sure I could remain civil.  But well, if you insist.  My place or yours?
