GetUp! candidates now run Australia

Bill Shorten and Labor have shown their true colours by voting to pass Kerryn Phelps’ controversial Medivac Bill in the House of Representatives. It’s a clear sign that GetUp candidates and left-wing activists are now in charge and that Labor will bow to their agenda in government.

“This is evidence of the control the radical left has over Labor. It’s appalling that the alternative Prime Minister would even consider voting for legislation that weakens our national security,” National Director of Advance Australia Gerard Benedet said.

Wrong in 2015 - Wrong in 2019

In further proof of the cosy relationship between Labor and the Unions, it’s been revealed that Australia’s largest union-backed Industry Super Fund warned against any changes to franking credits for shares in a submission to the Coalition Government in 2015.

Now, despite overwhelming evidence of the devastating effect the policy will have, Australian Super is backing Labor’s policy to remove franking credits for nearly a million low income Australians.

Academics oppose Western Civilisation

Students at the University of Queensland could be denied the opportunity to study a Western civilisation degree supported by the Ramsey Centre for Western Civilisation because academics have voted during a union meeting to oppose the move.

In further evidence of the growing censorship within tertiary academia, these angry adults are trying to restrict the choices of students because they don’t believe the course will reflect their narrow world view.

Transgender Description “CENSORED”

Two news organisations that described a self-confessed transgender woman as a transgender woman have been found to be in breach of Australian Press Council standards for doing so.

Labor not for turning on super changes

Despite mounting evidence of the devastating impact Labor’s franking tax changes will have in slashing the income of nearly a million senior Australians, Bill Shorten has declared Labor is “not for turning” and his Shadow Treasurer Chris Bowen has dismissively said “they’re entitled to vote against us”.

Australia’s energy supply was yesterday in serious doubt, with consumers in two states being urged not to use their household appliances to ease pressure on a system pushed to breaking point.
