I would like to know where our great leader Scotty from Marketing is at the moment.
In hiding methinks.

Well its a $60 billion saving because the money was going to be budgeted to be spent. The government
Should consider a national infrastructure program including fast rail on the eastern seaboard from melbourne to brisbane. That would be a great project for the nation. I congratulate the federal government
and Josh for not making the mistake of just forking out another 60 billion to the long term dole bludgers.

Think that just might be what they do.

Millions did not miss out. You have no idea what you are talking about. You do realise you can still apply  :lol

It was only last week there were emails out saying sorry you missed out and now try again we have broadened the eligibility. Now understood that was the business support scheme (state) but if you can apply go for it. Simple.

Millions are missing out. If you are worker from a foreign owned company you are not entitled to Job Keeper, even though you pay taxes. You are also aware that they have saod today that are under no circumstances going to widen the eligibility criteria or extend the program

If you won't apply then it's your own fault for relying on accountants where really the individual should read up yourself.  I don't have anyone who didn't get it after applying, and that includes full part time and casual workers and the self employed.

Nice cheap shot at an accountant Frankie

Lucky you, I do. Know 3 people have been told they don't qualify including one who is a casual who has worked for the same company for 10 months.

This is money saved and a witch-hunt by a party bereft of answers, and still tearing up after the unlosable election.

I was talking about the bungled pink batts scheme? You know that hair brained scheme which cost money not the other way around.

 If you want to talk about suicide how many have pulled the pin due to suicide or family violence with the extension of Conrad Andrews dictatorship lockup. We will never know but you count on it being more than covid. :shh

Money saved? Outside of it not being an actual saving.

Not so fast....

You are aware that the government are thinking of using the money somewhere else but they are arguing amongst themselves as to what they should use it for.... So no savings just yet

Oh and one  more thing...even yourself ScoMo has admitred they stuffed up. If they didn't stuff up why has he just said the did?

Scotty from Marketing is at it again with his "new" JobMaker scheme.


A new idea? It is if you think a focus on trades and the TAFE sector is new.

Well tough IMO. They got paid more than the average person being on casual rates. Nothing stopping them going on job seeker, or are they going to complain about getting $100 a week less, which would be offset with the $750 x 2 stimulus. So in a lot of cases they would be better off under Job Seeker.

Government made a mistake, but a very good one to make. Market likes the mistake and scomo has really done it again. Turned a potential negative into a positive.  :bow

His performance is reaping praise wherever you look, and by the people that count.

Federal government should launch a high court challenge against Victoria to have Victorias agreement declared illegal. The socialists should never have jumped into bed with communist china. Its just eisgraceful and will put our country and our state at risk.

Imagine if it was Dutton or someone else WP and the like would have been here quick as a flash. Not that anyone could be that stupid, even albo doesn't look happy. He seems like a good bloke well next to shorten anyone is, who can't keep his face off the TV. He might think he is a chance again to boot albo out. :lol

Otherwise nothing to see here move right along. Take it all the way to the next election and show Andrews next to those commie bastards along with the total number of the deaths in the world.

Disgraceful country and the only positive is reduce our reliance on those scum bags

Australia will record its first recession in 29 years as March quarter GDP shrinks

GDP figures from the Bureau of Statistics show Australia's economy shrank 0.3 per cent in the March quarter, amid bushfires and the early stages of the coronavirus pandemic.

This makes it certain that Australia will suffer its first recession in 29 years, as the full impact of coronavirus-related shutdowns occurred during the current June quarter.

Economists widely define a recession as two consecutive quarters of GDP contraction, which are now certain to occur.

Scotty from Marketing is at it again with his "new" HomeBuilder scheme.


A good idea? It is if you are wealthy enough to afford a $150,000 extension or a $750,000 new house.


Does nothing for the people suffering on JobKeeper or JobSeeker.
