Prepare to be savaged, John Howard:
Opposition Leader Kim Beazley has promised Labor will launch its most aggressive fight against the government in 10 years when parliament resumes next week.
In his first major speech of the year, Mr Beazley launched a scathing attack on the government’s handling of the AWB scandal, again accusing Prime Minister John Howard of a massive cover-up …
He said all Australians needed to understand what the AWB scandal really was.
“This scandal is Aussie dollars for Iraqi bullets,” Mr Beazley said.
“It is wheat for weapons.”
It is grain for guns, it is cereal for a serial killer! Michael Gordon makes a better case than Beazley for widening the wheat scam inquiry; latest news involves Australian ambassadors to the US and Jordan. Treasurer Peter Costello says the goverment would carefully considerany inquiry-widening request. More from Angry Kim:
He said that when the coalition was handed majority control of the Senate in July, the government moved away from Australia’s core values of fairness, mateship, respect and decency.
“The day our society started to become a lot more dog-eat-dog and a lot more insecure,” Mr Beazley said.
He does carry on.
