Tony Abbott Will Be Australia’s Most Culturally Literate Prime Minister

April 6, 2013 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ As I said at the IPA anniversary dinner, I believe Tony Abbott – if successful at the election – will be the most culturally literate and thoughtful Prime Minister since at least Robert Menzies. While I have at times argued with him over policy, I have not once had reason to […]

What Does A Price Of $26 Per Ton On Carbon (Dioxide) Emissions Mean

October 25, 2010 by


Debate rages everywhere about placing a cost on Carbon Emissions, and before I go any further, it shows the ignorance of those people who propose this that they cannot even get the title right. It’s Carbon Dioxide (CO2) Emissions. That debate rages even here in Australia, so let’s look at the situation here in Australia […]

The Tea Party Goes International

October 15, 2010 by


By Anna Leutheuser Despite the media’s negative portrayal, support for the Tea Party is growing at astonishing speed.  Over half of the electorate now consider themselves favorable to the Tea Party, according to recent polls.  Just this weekend, the Virginia Tea Party Convention, co-hosted by The Heritage Foundation, attracted over 2,000 attendees – the largest […]

Australia Given The Government They Didn’t Want

September 8, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Read this Post carefully, and then read the observation I have added at the end of the Post…..TonyfromOz. THIS was the worst way for Labor to win government, and the best for Tony Abbott to lose it. What a discreditable end to 17 days of largely pointless haggling. Here were the two […]

Australian Federal Election – Excuse Removed

September 7, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt It is now 17 days since Australia voted, and still there is no definitive result. The incumbent Labor Government under Julia Gillard as Prime Minister frittered away what should have been a comfortable majority they had following the earlier election in 2007, and in fact came close to losing Government outright, which […]

Australian Federal Election – Can The independents Swallow The Greens?

August 28, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Are the Greens the deal breaker for the independents? THE prospect of a formal Labor-Greens alliance is putting Julia Gillard on a collision course with the key regional independents… After talks yesterday with Greens leader Bob Brown and new Greens MP Adam Bandt, the Prime Minister left open the possibility of an […]

Australian Federal Election – Abbott Calls Out Labor, And The Three Amigos

August 27, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt As the election impasse moves forward at snails’ pace, opinion is starting to change, and that the three main Independents may be asking for too much, and that it now seems to look like they want to be the ones who are in effect governing Australia. The Coalition has an opinion that […]

Australian Federal Election – Three Years Of Katter As King?

August 26, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt We are at a dangerous point when the Deputy Prime Minister will grovel to Bob Katter and the other two rural independents who have the power of deciding who governs. If a member’s first duty is to represent their electorate, then these independents should side with the Coalition over Labor, given the […]

Australian Federal Election – Gillard Seems Set, As Independents Snub Their Voters

August 24, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt As predicted here yesterday, Julia Gillard looks like winning with the backing of some of the independents: Privately, the two NSW independents Rob Oakeshott and Tony Windsor, were leaning toward Labor, and would break from Queensland independent Bob Katter if needed. With their support and that of Greens MP Adam Bandt, Ms […]

Australian Federal Election – The Only Good In This Bad Result

August 23, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt With the election result still balanced with no outright winner, and the distinct possibility of a ‘hung’ Parliament, I’m going to concentrate on it for a couple of days until the picture becomes a little more clear. To that end, I’ll be posting two posts from Andrew today. The second of those […]

For in depth background on the Australian electoral process, the major players and the two main Parties involved see the post at this link. By the time most of you read this, […]

The Newspapers’ Call The Australian Election Result

August 20, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt With the Federal Election to be held on Saturday, the newspapers here in Australia have nailed their colours to the mast and tipped who they think might win what is tipped to be the closest result since the 1960 Federal Election. For background on the Australian electoral process and the major players […]

Australia’s Conservative Abbott Ascendant. ABC Must Weep

August 18, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Tony Abbott leads the Liberal Party of Australia, the main Conservative party here in Australia. He has grown into the role from an unsure start some months back now, and has become more assured when being interviewed by the mainly left leaning media here in Australia. One of those major Current Affairs […]

Galaxy Poll: Queensland Could Finish Gillard

August 15, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt As election day draws closer in Australia, the polls are sometimes swinging wildly. In my home State of Queensland, there is widespread anger at the way former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd was dumped. What also does not help the incumbent Federal Labor Government is that at the State level, Labor is ‘on […]

Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard Does Not Want You To See Where She’s Been

July 19, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt Where it mentions the Liberal Party here, be aware that this is Australia’s major Conservative Party, and the U.S. equivalent is the Republican Party…..TonyfromOz. JULIA Gillard’s impudent slogan “moving forward” says it all about a campaign that will in fact be most about the past. Labor is brazenly telling us to ignore […]

July 18, 2010 by


With a general election called at the Federal level here in Australia, to be held on August 21, it’s worthwhile looking at the electoral process here in Australia. In the run up to this vitally important election, I will be contributing regular posts, both about the campaign, and especially the result. To give you a […]

Australia To Go To The Polls

July 17, 2010 by


AUSTRALIAN PRIME MINISTER JULIA GILLARD GOES TO THE POLLS By Andrew Bolt Even though this specifically concerns Australia, it acts as an indicator of the direction of public opinion. Here in Australia, The Government is from the left side of politics, and similar in many respects to the Democrat led Administration in the U.S. Over […]

So How Will Australia’s New Prime Minister Julia Gillard Perform? Probably Very Well (But Polls Say No.)

June 25, 2010 by


By Andrew Bolt. I understand that the political scene in far off Australia might mean very little to readers in the U.S. However the similarities are worth looking at. This new Prime Minister is from the Party of the left side of politics here in Australia, and just as is happening in the U.S. public […]

Exclusive – Australian Senate Rejects Emissions Trading Legislation – Again

December 2, 2009 by


Before you read one word of this post, ask yourself this simple, and logical question, and then think about it for a minute. “How does taxation lower Carbon Dioxide levels?” Less than four hours ago, the Australian Senate rejected the Emissions Trading Scheme legislation, oddly, here in Australia called the Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme. (CPRS) […]
