Vaccine skepticism In Australia now punishable by 10 years in jail

Australian nurses and midwives who dare to speak out against the dangers of vaccinations, regarding deadly mercury contents, faetal tissue and other harmful ingrediants, on social media or in person will be prosecuted, the Australian government has warned, urging members of the public to report vaccine skeptics to the authorities.

Medical professional face a jail sentence of 10 years for expressing doubt about the effectiveness of vaccinations or urging further studies into vaccine safety. Opponents of the new law claim free speech and scientific integrity is under attack in Australia by a government that has been bought and paid for by Big Pharma.

With no exceptions we expect all registered nurses, enrolled nurses and midwives to use the best available evidence in making practice decisions. This includes providing information to the public about public health issues,” Chair of the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Dr. Lynette Cusack said in a statement.

 The NMBA has called on Australians to report nurses or midwives promoting anti-vaccination – ‘anti-vaxxers’, as they’re known colloquially.

 “The board will consider whether the nurse or midwife has breached their professional obligations and will treat these matters seriously,” the statement said.

 “Any published anti-vaccination material and/or advice which is false, misleading or deceptive which is being distributed by a registered nurse, enrolled nurse or midwife (including via social media) may also constitute a summary offence under the National Law and could result in prosecution by AHPRA [Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency.

Robert J Kennedy jr stated in his meeting with Donald Trump:

What you have to understand is that the vaccine regimen changed dramatically around 1989. The reason it changed, Tucker, is that Congress, drowning in pharmaceutical industry money, did something they have never done for any other industry – they gave blanket legal immunity to all the vaccine companies.

“So that no matter how sloppy the line protocols, no matter how absent the quality control, no matter how toxic the ingredients, or egregious the injury to your child, you cannot sue them.

“So there’s no depositions, there’s no discovery, there’s no class action suits. All of a sudden vaccines became enormously profitable.”

“It became a gold rush for the pharmaceutical industry to add new vaccines to the spectrum.”

“Brain dead Sheep?”

Jill Hennessy MP refers to people as “Brain Dead Sheep”

One of the strongest supporters of vaccination, Victoria’s Health Minister Jill Hennessy, has no time for parents who believe vaccine safety requires further study in order to ensure they are safe for our children.

Describing vaccine skeptics as brain dead sheep, the politician said:

 “They are an organized movement, largely stemming from the United State of America that are hell bent on misleading parents that vaccinations are unsafe.

 “That’s a dangerous message and one I’m going to continue to fight. Vaccinations save lives,” the minister concluded.

“This statement confirms poor Jill knows nothing and understand less.

According to the new laws, parents who don’t immunize their kids may stop receiving childcare benefits. Only people with solid medical reasons are exempt from the crackdown.

Lindt Café: a carousel of catastrophe

Recent comments from the Coroner exposed gaping flaws in police capability

by Gil Hanrahan in Sydney

Any ten year old kid who has fired a .177 Daisy air rifle would know that low velocity lead pellets do not fragment nor in most instances, ricochet.

Police at the Lindt Café siege in 2014 should have possessed the same knowledge. Supposedly trained SWAT policemen too should have known this basic ballistic tenet.

More revelations about the police blunders were aired during the recent Coroners report into the deaths of Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson.

NSW SWAT policemen about to storm the Lindt Café where Muslim terrorist Man Monis held 18 hostages in 2014

One unit threw flash grenades about the foyer before entering the café, thus blinding and deafening themselves before getting into the café.

The shooter at Port Arthur obviously was not in the same situation. He wore ear plugs or he would have had concussion from the firearm muzzle energy and excruciating noise of repeated firing in a confined space.

The police blundered into the cafe, one on top of the other falling about in the dark, waving around and blazing their H & K .223 high velocity assault rifles at an indistinguishable target.

Travelling at 3300 feet per second these 55 grain projectiles are lethal if they directly hit a target or if a bullet hits a hard wall and ricochets or fragments.

The officer who actually hit the gunman fired 17 rounds in three seconds clearly demonstrating he had not been trained to shoot in a confined space, tactical response situation.

Another officer was actually wounded by shrapnel from either his own or his partner’s firearm.

Hostages Katrina Johnson and Tori Johnson could have been saved

The young barrister, Katrina Dawson, did not have a chance. Of course bullet fragments had to go somewhere and they did, killing an innocent young mother with shrapnel.

Commissioner Scipione was not about to allow the highly trained army anti- terrorist unit that was on standby, poised and ready to move from Holdsworthy Army Base, to take out the terrorist. This would look bad for the cops.

This error of judgement by a Police Commissioner who went home to bed for the night while 10 highly distressed innocent café patrons and eight staff cowered under the mad terrorist’s shotgun, left command of the siege to the totally hopeless and inept Assistant Commissioner Catherine Burns.

Assistant Commissioner Catherine Burns, inept and unable to make a decision

For this the families of the two murdered hostages and NSW should be thankful. Commissioner Andrew Scipione has retired will not again be at the helm of another disaster, and nor should his Commander Jenkins.

Café manager Tori Johnson died needlessly at the muzzle of  mad Man Monis’ 12 gauge shotgun.

The army anti-terrorist unit would have stormed the café within an hour of assessing the siege situation. Tori and Katrina would not have died.

Only two officers were needed to enter the café through each door. Armed with HK MP5 assault rifles chambered in 9mm calibre, these lower velocity, copper jacketed lead projectiles travelling at 1300 fps do not fragment, rarely ricochet and are effective at close range.

The snipers had a chance to take out Man Monis on several occasions by firing through a plate glass window.

Who knows what firearms the snipers had that night. They should have been armed with a minimum .30 calibre sniper rifle such as a 7mm Remington Magnum or a .300 Winchester Magnum, highly effective sniper rifles at any distance.

If they had been properly trained they would have used 150 grain armour piercing, boat tailed projectiles that could have punched a hole through plate glass or even medium armoured glass at the close range they were offered.
There would have been little collateral damage.

Instead no sniper fired a shot. The mad Islamic terrorist might have had a bomb in his back pack but If they had shot him in the head at 50 metres through the glass, the bomb factor would have been irrelevant.

The police protect their own and for the new Commissioner, Mick Fuller, interviewed on Four Corners, it was obviously extremely hard for him make his best admission, “we could have gone in earlier.”

Well Commissioner, where was your apology to the Dawson and Johnson families?

The people of Inner Sydney can be thankful there was not more than one terrorist.

 

Government announces massive facial recognition ID scheme immediately after Brighton shooting scam

The Federal Government will soon finalise the complete and ultimate facial recognition records for all Australian citizens.

And Pauline Hanson wants a national ID Card?

A national data base of passport, driver, gun owner and high risk equipment operator licence photos will be kept for access by just whom remains unknown.

Big brother is watching your every move

Federal and State police, immigration officers and Border Force will have access, but it seems more clandestine bodies will get their hands on your complete identity.

ASIO, ASIS and reciprocal overseas spy agencies will also have access to all of your personal data.

It should be noted that Australia has arrangements with some rather dubious nations for exchanging the personal information of all our citizens.

CCTV footage as depicted in US television shows such as NCIS Los Angeles will end up in captured data as supposedly trained facial recognition experts scan your face while you browse the shopping mall, fuel your car at the service station or sit on a park bench.

Highly sophisticated infa-red cameras in police cars record your every move online

Queensland Traffic Police and their contractors have had this technology for three years, photographing you in your car every time you pass a highway patrol vehicle or stationary camera car, storing your image and that of passengers, vehicle description, direction, time and date of travel.

The police cars have infa-red ability and can photograph the driver and all passengers in the car as you pass. By then your number plate will have been read by the on-board computer and sent online to the huge data bank in Roma Street Police HQ and another massive data bank held by the Main Roads Department.

Every occupant of your car can be photographed by patrol cars and recorded online with the Face Identification Service

Soon after the facial images of the car occupants will be sent to the national Face Identification Service.

Nearly 80 per cent of people over 16 hold a drivers licence and 55 per cent have a passport. More than 600,000 citizens have a photographic gun licence in Queensland.

Justice Minister Michael Keenan told News Corp that passport photos would be accessed in the coming months and drivers licences would be tapped into after ongoing discussions with the states were finalised.

The Face Identification Service will match a photo of an unknown person against multiple government records to help establish their identity.

“These biometric services will change the face of crime fighting in Australia,” Mr Keenan, a Liberal, said.

The final piece of the identity jigsaw is about to come into place. Tasmania MP Andrew Wilkie has warned Australia will become the police state, test case for the final solution.

The advice of Sydney security expert Mike Petersen: Do not vote at any election. If everybody does this the government will fail and the people can lawfully take control, elect their own representatives and return to Constitutional rule.

Obama wiretap of Trump campaign CONFIRMED!

The chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, California Rep. Devin Nunes, confirmed on Wednesday 22nd March 2017 President Donald Trump’s claims that his presidential transition team was spied on by former President Barack Obama’s administration.

Chairman of the House Intelligence Committee, Devin Nunes

The information they gathered was then widely spread throughout the Obama administration, Nunes said.

If evidence is found that Obama had it done intentionally to assist failed Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s campaign, which many critics suspect, this could be huge.

In fact, it could lead to Obama being arrested.

According to Nunes, the U.S. intelligence community collected information on members of the Trump transition team incidentally. The information was then “widely disseminated” in intelligence reports.

“I recently confirmed that on numerous occasions, the intelligence community collected information on U.S. individuals involved in the Trump transition,” Nunes told reporters. “Details about U.S. persons involved in the incoming administration, with little or no apparent foreign intelligence value, were widely disseminated in intelligence community reports.”

“This information was legally brought to me by sources who thought we should know it,” Nunes said. There were “dozens of reports, but no mention of Russia.”

James Comey may have some explaining his statement on Trump wiretaps

The revelation comes just after a bombshell committee hearing Tuesday where FBI Director James Comey told Congress there was “no information” that Trump had been wiretapped.

According to Nunes, the wiretap “legally collected foreign intelligence under FISA incidental collection.”

But Nunes also said he was “alarmed” that the  information “ended up in reporting channels and was widely disseminated” — and critics are calling for a full investigation into how this happened.

“I’m not gonna get into legal definitions here, but clearly I have a concern” that Obama was spying on Trump, Nunes said.

Is our borrowed annual $365m aid payment to Indonesia protection money?

107,538,660 fit for service Indonesian troops at our doorstep

This year Australia will hand out a borrowed $365.7 million in foreign aid to Indonesia, an Islamic regime, which is seen by some as a mafia-styled protection payment.

In effect, Australia in 2015 supported the world’s 12th largest army with an annual budget of IDR95 trillion($6,900,000,000 AU).

According to the manpower statistics below, the Indonesian Armed Forces (Tentera  Nasional Indonesia, or TNI) could easily overrun Northern Australia in a few days.

Available Manpower: 129,075,188

Australian military strength is too pathetic to publish.

Even more worrying is the military training being offered by the Australian duopoly government to our potential, greatest enemy.

Indonesia’s military control in West Papua today

In November an Indonesian instructor complained that “offensive” material about West Papua displayed at an Australian Special Forces base. It prompted Indonesia’s defence chief to cut military cooperation, throwing future joint exercises into doubt.

Indonesian Special Forces group Kopassus trains with the Special Air Service at the unit’s Campbell Barracks in Perth.

Capitulating in normal Australian style, Chief of Army Lieutenant General Angus Campbell also wrote to his Indonesian counterpart on November 24 to reassure him that Australia did not endorse the material.

Never mind that over the last 20 years hundreds have been killed and thousands of West Papuans have been dispossessed of their land and homes by Indonesian armed forces.

The Indonesian President eventually poured cold water over the training officer’s complaint and assured the Federal Government military ties would remain.

The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade says Indonesia is one of our most important bilateral relationships.

According to DFAT Australia and Indonesia have an extensive framework of cooperation spanning political, economic, security, development, education and people-to-people ties.

Sustainable and inclusive economic growth in Indonesia benefits Australia and contributes to regional growth and stability.

Indonesia has experienced steady economic growth in recent years. It has reached middle income status and achieved substantial development progress. However, economic growth is now slowing and inequality is rising.

At least 100 million people in Indonesia continue to live on $2 or less per day. Slow growth will make it more difficult for Indonesia to meet its development goals. Furthermore, low growth means the poor will find it harder to escape poverty, DFAT said.

In 2014-15, Australia exported 1.38 million cattle to Indonesia, valued at A$1.35 billion FOB.

This reflected a 22% increase on 2013-14. Indonesia was Australia’s largest live cattle export market, taking 746,193 head, up 20% year-on- year and was valued at A$601 million FOB.

Indonesia accounted for 54% of total Australian live cattle exports in 2014-15. In 2014-15, the second largest market for Australian cattle was Vietnam, taking 309,505 head (up 136% on 2013-14), valued at A$328 million FOB.

Inquest in 2014 finds against Indonesian military

Murdered Australia news reporters 1975

Seven years ago the AFP launched an investigation into the deaths of Brian Peters, 29, Malcolm Rennie, 28, Gary Cunningham, 27, Gregory Shackleton, 29, and Anthony Stewart, 21, who were killed in October 1975 reporting on Indonesian military action.

In 2007, New South Wales deputy state coroner Dorelle Pinch found the five men died at Balibo in Timor Leste, also known as East Timor, on October 16, 1975.

Captain Yunus Yosfiah

In her inquest into the death of Peters, Ms Pinch concluded the men “died from wounds sustained when (they) were shot and or stabbed deliberately, and not in the heat of battle, by members of the Indonesian special forces, including (Commander) Christoforus Da Silva and Captain Yunus Yosfiah on the orders of Captain Yosfiah to prevent (them) from revealing that Indonesian special forces had participated in the attack on Balibo”.

The AFP confirmed in a statement to the ABC they had abandoned their investigation into the killing of the men, who came to be known as the Balibo Five.

“The AFP has conducted an extensive review of the investigation,” the statement read.

“During the investigation the AFP identified challenges associated with establishing jurisdiction. The investigation continued in an effort to overcome those issues.

“However, the AFP has concluded that there is currently insufficient evidence to prove an offence.

“As a result, the AFP has exhausted all inquiries in relation to this matter and will be taking no further action.

“The AFP has had ongoing consultation with the families throughout this complex and difficult investigation. Family members based in Australia and the United Kingdom were briefed by senior AFP investigators this evening.”

The AFP said the men’s families had been informed of the decision.

The AFP has a reputation for botched investigations particularly the questionable circumstances leading to the conviction of Shapelle Corby and the Bali Nine in 2005.

In 2009, former Indonesian soldier Gatot Purwanto  said the men were shot deliberately but not executed. (from ABC)

It is no secret that most Muslim Indonesians dislike Australia yet Australians flock to the tourist destination of Bali spending millions of dollars a year.

Tourism bodies say that the numbers of Australian travellers has levelled out due mainly to executions of Australian drug dealers, volcanic eruptions and terrorist attacks.

While 16,000 Indonesians visited Australia in 2016, 1 million aussies on average visit Indonesia each year worth a projected $1 billion to its economy by 2020.

Our nearest neighbour could one day become our nearest aggressor and paying the Indonesian military government protection money will be unnecessary should the military decide to move on Australia.

Four years ago when Rudd was Prime Minister a northern development paper was released describing millions of acres that were “available for development by other nations.”

The Australian Government will borrow to provide an estimated $365.7 million in total ODA to Indonesia in 2016-17, including an estimated $296 million in bilateral funding also borrowed and managed by DFAT.

Indonesia is one of Australia’s most important bilateral relationships. Australia and Indonesia have an extensive framework of cooperation spanning political, economic, security, development, education and people-to-people ties. Sustainable and inclusive economic growth in Indonesia benefits Australia and contributes to regional growth and stability.

Slow growth will make it more difficult for Indonesia to meet its development goals. Furthermore, low growth means the poor will find it harder to escape poverty.

Australia works in an economic partnership with Indonesia, supporting its efforts to leverage its own resources to generate growth and distribute those benefits to a larger number of its people. Australia provides policy and technical advice that will improve the quality of Indonesia’s investments in infrastructure, economic governance, human development and social policy.

ADF land grab looks for less greener pastures

 

katter-knuth-adf

21 December 2016: In what media reports are labelling an “early win” for the 23 graziers in the Charters Towers area who were potentially going to have their properties forcibly aquired, the Defence Department will look into alternative sites for the Australian Defence Force’s (ADF) Singapore Army training deal.

KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter, who resides in Charters Towers, has thanked the Senior Ministers he met with on the issue earlier in the month.

Mr Katter said, “We want to put on public record our appreciation to Defence Industry Minister Christopher Pyne and Finance Minister Mathias Cormann.

“Just a short while after I met with them and the day after tens of dozens of graziers and members of the greater Charters Towers community rallied with KAP Member for Dalrymple, Shane Knuth and I at the Dalrymple sale yards last week, the Defence Department has announced it will look at two alternatives for its $2.2 billion Singapore training site.

“If no other part of the Government is working, Minister Pyne’s and Minister Cormann’s areas are — and we appreciate them for that.”

The Defence Department has confirmed that is will conduct a feasibility study into the viability of using two alternative sites – Pentland and Greenvale.

Mr Katter said, “The battle isn’t over yet, we need to keep fighting until the ADF commit to an alternative site.

“But I have complete faith in the tenacity and the unity of the affected graziers and Charters Towers community  – to not roll over, to not accept their fate and to keep fighting! And Shaney and I will be with you all the way!”

Liberal senator supports huge ADF land grab adjoining Townsville

Liberal Senator for Queensland  Ian McDonald wants the defence force to buy 23 agricultural and grazing properties next to Townsville city to accommodate Singaporean troops

Katter Australia Party –  2 December 2016

Bob-Katter-003KAP Member for Kennedy, Bob Katter is continuing the fight for nervous landholders who look set to lose their properties through the Australian Defence Force’s expansion plans.

Mr Katter met with Finance Minister Cormann and the Defence Minister Pyne during the last sitting week in Parliament.

Mr Katter told the Finance Minister there are more cost effective areas than Hervey Range for the ADF’s training expansion needs to meet the Singapore Defence Deal.

Mr Katter said, “I told him there won’t be much change from half a billion. One of these properties was recently sold for over $17m.

“Well there are 23 properties in this proposed resumption area.

“They can acquire a vastly more secure area for under 30 million verses half a billion!

“My experience of these issues is that Government end up paying two or three times the market price when these things are fought out in the courts.

“An extra two hours’ drive to the other side of Pentland (where I propose the ADF buy out) would be neither here nor there.

“The other side of Pentland is very poor country. There is no run off from that area to the Great Barrier Reef or domestic water.

“All the problems of the Range simply do not exist at Pentland

“You do not take prime agricultural area to use for a military training area.”

senator-ian-macdonnald-qld-2

“Liberal Senator Ian McDonald wants to close Queensland  food producing farms and expand military infrastructure to train Singapore troops”.

In fierce contrast to Mr Katter, Senator Ian McDonald — who is based in Townsville supports the deal.

Mr Katter said, “The Liberal spokesman (who I’m sure many Liberals would like to put a bung in  his mouth,  in his vast wisdom he lost the LNP the seat of Townsville and most of the QLD seats too…) well, he’s come up with a gem here.

“Probably the most serious issue here is the strangling of development .

“Townsville has only one serious growth corridor which is Hervey Range.

“This proposal will land lock Townsville. It is disastrous for the city.

“We are positive for the expansion, but not at the expense at our future meat works, the future growth of our city, the destruction of prime agricultural land and serious issues of ordinance running on to the Great Barrier Reef.”

Harry Palmer Comments:

Senator MacDonald has confirmed  – “All the seats of fools are now taken in parliamentas that voice of the people diminishes further under this LNP government control generating a fast dawning back to democracy with Bob Katter remaining true voice of the people of Queensland in the house that makes the rules.

Extreme torture inside China’s correctional facilities

WARNING: Disturbing content.

JINTAO Liu’s body shuddered in pain as he endured yet another day of extreme torture.

He had woken to pins being pushed into his nails before he was forced to stand still in a yard for some 18 hours. If he moved, he was beaten viciously and within an inch of his life.

Each excruciating second of the gruelling punishment caused his legs to swell as his body threatened to buckle under the pressure. He was given “no toilet breaks”, and shown no mercy. Time had become his enemy — but not his worst.

That was a typical day for Mr Liu during a lengthy stint in a series of Beijing detention centres and labour camps between 2006 and 2009.

There, he was subjected to electric shocks, medical tests, forced feedings, beatings, violent sexual assaults and other barbaric forms of torture designed by prison guards to humiliate and inflict maximum pain.

But it was one particularly savage punishment that etched the deepest psychological scar on Mr Liu.

“The incident which marked me the most was when they, four of (the prison guards), stripped me of my clothes, and used the toilet brush to pierce my anus, saying that they would pierce until I turned homosexual,” Mr Liu told news.com.au.

“They pulled my pubic hairs and played with my genitals.”

His only ‘crime’ was to practice Falun Gong, a spiritual meditation based on the guiding principles of “truth, compassion and tolerance”.

But perhaps just as shocking is that the Chinese government has been carrying out these human rights atrocities — including forced organ removal for harvesting purposes — on innocent citizens and convicted criminals for the best part of the past two decades. And it’s still happening today.

WHAT IS HAPPENING AND WHY?

Mr Liu, 36, is one of thousands of people who have been incarcerated in some of China’s worst jails, labour camps and detention centres for practising Falun Gong and refusing to give up their spiritual beliefs.

By the 1990s Falun Gong had become so popular it was estimated to have 100 million members, outnumbering the country’s ruling Communist Party and prompting former Chinese leader Jiang Zemin to ban the practice in 1999.

Doctors Against Forced Organ Harvesting (DAFOH) Australia spokeswoman Sophia Bryskine said the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners was still extensive with many being locked up “with no legal proceedings”.

“In our recent research and communications we have focused predominantly on prisoners of conscience as the scale of abuse remains vast,” she told news.com.au.

Dr Bryskine said China was committing human rights atrocities on a mass, state-sanctioned level and that Australia, along with the other nations, needed to immediately act and condemn it.

Missed opportunities that could have ended fatal Lindt cafe siege

Missed opportunities that could have ended fatal Lindt cafe siege\Within 75 minutes of the Lindt cafe siege beginning, two clear and viable options that might have avoided the deadly outcome were available. The first involved TAG East, the Australian Army’s elite counter-terrorism unit, which quickly assembled at Holsworthy army base in Sydney, ready to be called.

Fifteen hours later, as a police team that had none of the real-life experience of TAG East would storm the Lindt cafe, the special forces soldiers were still on standby. TAG East — the Tactical Assault Group based on the east coast — has commandos who have worked in Afghanistan and Iraq.

If, for example, 18 Australians were taken hostage by Islamic State in Iraq, this is the team the Australian government would dispatch to rescue them. Yet here they were — 30 minutes drive from the Lindt Cafe — and they were never called.

Prime Minister Turnbull dismissing ADF repatriation a bloody disgrace

PM’s no-show at repatriation “a bastard act” – Veterans Party

Mr Davey said that the PM’s decision demonstrates that he is seemingly more interested in his own political career than honouring fallen veterans and their families on a day of national significance.

“Like many Australians, I chose to watch the live coverage of the Terendak Repatriation. To my surprise, which quickly turned into an emotion of disgust, was the evident absence of our Prime Minister,” Mr Davey said.

“The Prime Minister holds the office that determines if Australia’s men and women go to war, and he should certainly have been there to see their return home, especially at a moment of such significance to the families, Vietnam Veterans and the wider Australian public.

“Mr Turnbull’s decision to campaign in a mattress factory was incomprehensible, and probably robbed the opposition leader of the opportunity to attend alongside the PM in a show of bipartisanship.

“I’ve been hearing the reaction of many veterans and whilst the majority of them were hammering the Prime Minister, Opposition Leader Bill Shorten has also been copping a fair flogging.

“Now I’m only speculating here, but I would suggest that if Mr Turnbull had made the conscious decision not to attend, then probably no opportunity existed for Mr Shorten to attend – but, Mr Shorten probably needs to clarify why he was not there too.”

Mr Davey added that Treasurer Scott Morrison’s choice of words and signage at a concurrent press conference was a poor decision.

“If I was Mr Morrison I’d be checking whether my closest advisers and confidants were members of another political party, because using the word ‘war’ in both his speech and accompanying signage at the time of a repatriation ceremony was simply clueless,” Mr Davey said.

“Surely such a political aspirant didn’t come up with this ‘brain-child’ idea himself.

The Veterans Party leader said today’s performance by key members of the Government were hardly heartening for Australia’s veterans or those who serve in the Australian Defence Force, let alone others in the Australian public.

“Let me say this to you Mr Turnbull; your decision today leads many to the suspicion that you possess no tradition other than self-interest. You have demonstrated a complete lack of leadership and a total disconnect from the issues close to the heart of our country. Even odds however, come Anzac Day, and you are the Prime Minister, you’ll be there hand on heart and taking salutes from members of the men and women who serve our country,” Mr Davey said.

Opposition leader Bill Shorten also was conspicuous by his absence as he maintain that plethora of lies and deceit with Mr Turnbull on their panic stricken campaign trail reflecting voters turning away in droves from the corrupt governments delivered by Liberal and Labor, took preference to honoring our fallen returning home.
