‘Now it’s Morrison’s version of Kill Bill’
Unfortunately, Paul Osborne’s analysis (“Morrison looks to election with ministry”, Bendigo Advertiser, August 26) that the Coalition's new team "putting some more firepower into the Coalitions attacks on Labor" is the only strategy they have.
Now it's Morrison's version of Kill Bill.
They are still trying to sell Abbott's policies, and they will be hoping that the voters get a severe case of amnesia before the election to forget the reduced penalty rates, Robo calls, reduced pensions, higher power prices, lumps of coal in parliament, refusing a banking Royal Commission, cutting funding to the ABC, live cattle exports, Murray Darling basin fiasco, pork barrelling APVMA, dumping their leader, and on and on it goes.
Would it be too much to ask when good government begins, or is that secondary to attacking the opposition?
Peter Neilson, Kyneton
Labor shouldn’t get too cocky about election win
A message for the Leader of the Opposition Bill Shorten and the Labor Party is that they should not to get too cocky and complacent, believing that they are certain winners at the next federal election whenever it may be called.
People are fed up with the disgraceful behaviour from all sides of politics over the last five years.
Remember, you have been elected to represent the nation not your own self interest or the party lines.
You need to listen to the concerns of the nation, the problems that we are facing and make life easier, especially for the elderly and the farmers that are doing it tough along with everyone else.

The sad thing is that governments have put this nation in this position by selling off all our commodities in electricity, gas and water. If these commodities had been kept under government control we wouldn't be in this sorry state of affairs.
One wonders how long Scott Morrison can hold the sinking ship afloat before the rumblings start again by the wreckers.
This once lucky country can't keep going down this pathway of destruction without doing what is right. We need honesty and integrity and most of all we want strong leadership.

The ‘A’ team fails again
The "A" team fails again in the House of Un-Representatives. Change the PM, change your smoke alarm battery.
Rupert [Murdoch] will not be pleased.
On figures alone Morrison is in more danger than Turnbull was as he is only three votes away from being dudded by Dutton.

No royal commission into the banks, Josh gives $444 million to the great barrier reef authority, who have climate change deniers on their board.
Different day, same horse, same race, same result, swabbed and rubbed out.
