October 16, 2018 by

0

October 15, 2018 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Two polls confirm the Australian Government led by Prime Minister Scott Morrison remains way behind Labor, for all the talk of gaining momentum.

August 6, 2018 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ Here in Australia, the Turnbull Government is in a pitched battle with the States over its National Energy Guarantee.

July 31, 2018 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Here in Australia, the Labor Party had more sense than the Liberal Party did. It rejected Malcolm Turnbull offer to join, saying he was too much of a Liberal.

July 27, 2018 by

By Andrew Bolt ~ You have been conned. The Liberal Party members have been betrayed by their leaders.

[…]

June 25, 2018 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ The Turnbull Government passes a big tax cut plan. The media turns on Bill Shorten.

May 7, 2018 by

0

May 3, 2018 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ The Liberals would be worthless if professional lobbyists and global warming fanatics pull this off: Tony Abbott’s political future could be under threat from a group of activists who have been organising environmentally conscious [sic] voters to join Liberal party branches on Sydney’s north shore – a move that could unseat […]

Australian Politics – Good, No Tax Rises, But The NDIS Is Still A Tax-Guzzler

April 26, 2018 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ Good that it won’t raise taxes, after all: The Turnbull government has abandoned a plan to increase the Medicare levy by 0.5 percent to pay for the National Disability Insurance Scheme, saying improvements in the Australian economy mean the measure is no longer necessary. But Labor, in fact, forced this change […]

April 24, 2018 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Back in 2015: Malcolm Turnbull has delivered a slap-down to Tony Abbott for lecturing European leaders over their refugee policies as he arrived in Berlin.

April 23, 2018 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Financial Services Minister Kelly O’Dwyer embarrassed herself yesterday in trying to avoid admitting the Government was wrong to block a royal commission into the banks for so long.

April 22, 2018 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ Another shocking week for the Australian Government led by Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull. Time to blame Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott again.

Australian Politics – Kevin Andrews: Liberal Party Members Have Lost The Voter’s Confidence

April 21, 2018 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ I gave a speech to a celebratory dinner last night – 240 guests – for Liberal MP Kevin Andrews, and am afraid I rather tore into the Turnbull Government.

Australian Politics – Australia: A Sitting Duck

April 17, 2018 by

0

By Andrew Bolt ~ Maurice Newman perfectly describes the disillusion of many conservatives with the Turnbull Government:  Malcolm Turnbull’s preference is to remain above the political fray rather than take the fight to the Labor Party. But then, having signed the Paris climate agreement, introduced a special bank tax, launched a royal commission into banks, […]

Australian Politics – Former Prime Minister Tony Abbott Is So Right That He’s Wrong

April 15, 2018 by

2

By Andrew Bolt ~ Feel the fear. They’ve told us for years Tony Abbott is finished. Yet the ABC’s Insiders today devotes around 10 minutes to attacking, ridiculing and misrepresenting him. And Miranda Devine today lists half a dozen things Abbott has said that were absolutely right – and angrily tells him to shut up. […]

April 8, 2018 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ Hurting Turnbull more than helping himself in an interview best not given: FORMER Prime Minister Tony Abbott has declared “life is not fair” as the Turnbull Government prepares to notch up 30 bad opinion polls — the same number reached by Mr Abbott when he was dumped as leader. Speaking exclusively […]

Australian Electrical Power Generation – Sheridan Versus Kelly: Sense Versus Rage

April 6, 2018 by

1

By Andrew Bolt ~ A superb column by Greg Sheridan, contradicting the howl of rage from warmist Paul Kelly: The Turnbull government’s energy narrative has completely collapsed in a welter of indecipherable internal contradictions and ridiculous figures plucked from the air in a way that inevitably brings to mind the last days of the Gillard-Rudd […]
