Winning in 2019 and Winning in 2020

It has been awhile since my last post.

12 months I think.

2019 for me has been busy with going back Uni to do post grad studies as well as furthering my career, oh and getting married.

But lets reflect on the world of politics in 2019 and go forward on bold predictions in 2020.

At the beginning of 2019 we saw the Liberal Nationals in NSW win comfortable in a State Election. This is because Labor was dogged with scandals, racism and lack of policy foresight. What we did see in this election was the rise of the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers. They took 2 seats off the National Party in the seats of Murray and Barwon and they were able to retain Orange. This is amazing considering One Nation failed to pick up ¬†any lower house seats and the media were portraying them as the Goliath of minor party’s, nevertheless, the honeymoon period of the Government was short lived after the Shooters, Fishers and Farmers have been hounding them over the lack of support of regional NSW. And rightly so!!

The other election to mention was the Federal one – you know the one where Bill Shorten was going to win in a landslide – yeeeaaaaah! Labor lost the un-loseable election but surely even blind Freddy could have seen that? Labor’s vision was to tax everyone and subsidise every green initiative you can think of including to ensure that by 2030 all cars sold in Australia must be electric. Rightio champ! I think the icing on the cake for Labor was that they were flirting with the idea of shutting down the coal industry, they failed to define what their policy is on the matter and hard working Australians who work in the coal industry especially in Queensland voted with their livelihoods. And rightly so!!

Overseas we have seen the UK Labour Party being destroyed by the working class. Thats right, the working class voted Conservative. UK Labour promised free everything and of course the way to pay for that was through taxes. The working class have woken up, they’ve become WOKE and realise that if the Government is giving away free stuff someone has to pay for it ….. and….. oh shit, that’s us the working class!
To be fair though, Boris Johnson ran a simple campaign; “Lets get Brexit done!” – whereas Labour complicated things and wanted to make this election less about Brexit and more about giving away free stuff. I am no marketing genius but keep it simple seems to work well in politics because majority of people are not interested in politics or the political spin but do take note of simple messages.
The other loser in this election – sadly – is Nigel Farage and his Brexit Party. They failed to win a seat and struggled to even reach 20% in seats that they stood candidates. A reason for this is because people wanted Brexit and the best way of getting this done was voting Conservative. Unfortunately in some seats the Brexit Party vote split the “Brexit” vote and cost the Conservatives seats.
Overall though, the UK people have rejected extreme socialism and antisemitism, good luck to Boris Johnson and the Conservatives.

I have to mention Donald Trump – he is still winning even though we have seen these baseless impeachment proceedings clouding him. Thats all I am going to say about that.

2020 BOLD PREDICTIONS

I am going to say that left wing party’s around the world will learn from 2019 and realise that playing identity politics and flirting with the Green-left agenda has failed them miserably. The Australian Labor Party have already criticised identity politics and they are moving away from their old Green-left approach and they are starting to embrace coal again. Well done!

The UK Labour Party are in shock and I think we will see a more moderate leader over there. The issue with UK politics is that the grassroots have a say on who they want to lead them and if they manage to get a more moderate leader in, the progressives will go elsewhere, such as the Greens.

Australia and the UK will negotiate a great deal of trade and immigration. Boris Johnson is big on promoting good relations between these two countries, this will be great news for Australians who want to travel or work in the UK.

Hillary Clinton will return. At the last minute she will stand for President and will win the Democrat nomination. She will denounce identity politics and be a voice of reason for the moderates within the Democrats. This will piss off the progressives and they will vote for someone else such as the rising Greens and will split that left vote meaning Trump will win the 2020 Presidential Election.

And finally!!!

I won’t win the lottery!!

Merry Christmas everyone, including the extreme left – actually – especially the extreme left and hope you all have a Happy New Year.

NSW Labor has a new tax scam. If you want a new car, I suggest you buy one now!

It’s been awhile since I have posted anything. The reason for that is because nothing exciting is happening despite that in NSW we are expecting to have two elections this year. A State election in March and a Federal election, possibly in May, depending on the shit storm in Canberra.

This morning I was reading the Daily Telegraph sipping my Nespresso latte’ with two sugars when I almost spat it out in shock and awe over NSW Labor’s new tax grab. I mean these cretins are not even in Government yet, and as my previous prediction still stands, they won’t win Government, but in order for them to fund more nurses and midwives – 5500 exact – they intend on increasing stamp duty on boats and cars. Now I don’t own a boat. Probably never will. However I do own a car and I think most Australians do. Now at the moment according to the Daily Telegraph, in NSW we pay $3 for every $100 in stamp duty for vehicles over $45,000. Under Labor’s new scam, they want to increase that to $5. Now, I am no socialist but pretend I am a left wing socialist luvvie, this is great news because it gets to fund for an extra 5500 nurses and midwives YAY!!!

Hold on!

Labor’s new scam will only generate $240million over three years yet it’s going to cost the Government about $500million to fund this policy. Shit! I am not that good at maths but isn’t that $260million short of $500million??

Hmmm.

So where will the other $260million come from? Even the NSW Labor Leader Michael Daley admits there is a shortfall but has declined to mention how they will fund for it.
Mr Daley goes on to say that the top end of town needs to pay their fair share, so is he suggesting that people in rural areas who are already struggling with farming costs, with the drought and lack of COAL power, that they are the top end of town? Many farmers own vehicles which often cost more than $45,000 to be able to perform their duties as farmers. This will just add further heartache for hurting farmers in the bush.

This scam by NSW Labor is just policy on the run. It is a feel good initiative for Labor to try and win votes from the apathetic voter. This is what Labor does best, they hide tax grabs by covering it up with feel good emotive populist policies. No Australian would say no to more nurses and midwives however it does come at a cost.
