Labor’s new campaign song celebrates climate change:

Now do you remember
I promised in winter
That our hearts would be lighter one day?
And sooner than later
The sky would be brighter
And everything would be OK?

Do you see it ?
Do you feel it ?
Yes you knew it was coming
The waiting is over
There’s a change in the weather

To fit with current Labor policy, that last line should read:

There’s no change at all in the weather, which is now permanently stable following the introduction of policies that will reduce greenhouse emissions by 60% over the next four decades. I’m Kevin! From Queensland! Here to help!

UPDATE. Leftoid Kim believes stupid proles will be lured to Labor by positive coverage in Brisbane’s Courier-Mail:

They will be picking up the C-M tomorrow, if only to read the Broncos game reports and get the form guide, and every newsagent in Queensland will have Rudd’s smiling visage and the headline “This man will help you” displayed. Gotta be worth something.

    1. Now do you remember
      That Labor’s a spender
      And the higher home interest we’ll pay?
      But not to masterbators
      Who see Hicks as a ‘fighter’
      Happy for others to pay

      Can you smell it ?
      Will you tread in it ?
      You can see it coming
      Better take cover
      There’s a change in the weather

    1. BTW, no kidding, Al Gore was in my little Upstate NY college town last night and of course, it was gloomy, rainy, and cool although not record cold.

      I considered selling “carbon credits” ala a baseball stadium peanut salesman as a joke but it really was cool and rainy and miserable.

    1. ALP and Kevni Rugg.

      They just keep giving to parody, don’t they!

    1. Someone should roll up tomorrow’s copy of the C-M and stuff it up Kim’s arse. After they’ve read the Broncos game reports and taken out the form guide, of course.

    1. Kim respects TEH workers!

      Just like her multi-millionaire idol, Kevni!

    1. BTW, you can hear the ALP’s campaign song here.

    1. The perfect parody of this song has already been written.

    1. There’s a Change In The Weather.

      You bet. It was pissing down this morning.
      Sunny and bright this afternoon.

      If these clowsns think a song with inane lyrics like that will somehow have resonance in the elctorate they are evn more deluded than I thought.

      Everything about this Labor Gab Fest reeks of crass opportunism, juvenile sloganeering and the smell of hubris and arrogance in the air is overwhelming.

      The sooner the KRudd bubble is given a little prick the better.

    1. A senior unionist follows the Labor leader’s example of personal ridicule and obscenely attacks the Prime Minister.

    1. “Where are the clowns?Sorry ,theyr’e here”

      Mr Rudd standing by, two sheilas open the door and bowing, he goes through to the stand where he makes Hilariously Funny Jokes about John Howard. Has them rolling in the aisles.
      I was waiting for the little girls to present him with bouquets.  They forgot the bouquets, dumb asses.
      Platitudes deserve Big Bouquets and kevvy is full of Platitudes, where are the flowers?.

    1. His chapter One section “solutions” in the speech refers to spending $500M on teaching pre-shool aged kids “pre-literacy and pre-numeracy”.
      I think the kids are achieving being pre-literate and pre-numerate without money being spent on them.

      Chapter 2, Dropping HECS fees for teachers, an important support group for the ALP.

      Chapter 3, Feds to take over education??

      Chapter 4, A bid to sell of school ovals??

      Chapter 5, Wouldnt it be better to treat all kids as if they didnt have the fudimentals and test them at the end of year 1 or 2??

      Chapter 6, Appears to be Kevies gift to Telstra of fully funding high speed broadband at taxpayer expense. Thanks Kev, you da man..

      He says CSIRO advisers believe that his 60% reduction in greenhouse gas emmisions “would be compatible with strong economic growth and improvements in living standards”. I call bullshit on this one straight off the bat. Name the names Kevini!!

      How will he do it ” We are commited to a national DEMAND SIDE management strategy…” because it worked so well for the USSR???

      Heres a PDF of the speech

      Rudd will be dangerous for Australia, no doubt about it.

    1. Some songs from the ‘Oils?

      Pie-in-the-sky Mining?
      Short Memory?

      Kev and the Scrote want your vote!

    1. #16 ta tfm

      The Rudd-map to doom?

      By contrast the conservatives stand for their three great ennobling values of me, myself and I.

      A case of projection?
      Narcissism seems to be par for the course for Labor leaders; this guy has it in spades!

    1. Is leftoid Kim reading that right?  Is she sure it shouldn’t be “This man will help you?!”

      “I don’t want to be a prime minister of a country that doesn’t make things any more.”
      That’s going to require some nifty footwork when coupled with his 60% reduction.
      I should imagine boring stuff like cement, steel, plastics and aluminium will become boutique materials, because of their high energy and/or CO2 values.

    1. The cracks from Rudd about Howard being “of the past” are quite Orwellian. Look forward to being taken back to Uniontopia by Rudd, until the whole economic show is stopped in the interests of a simpler, greener life. You know, where annual boot production statistics are fake and no CO2 is produced because …. nothing much is produced.
      Hartcher pointed out in yesterday’s Slimming Morning Herald that the basic, scary Socialist goals are still in the ALP platform.

      Kevin, take your weather, your acolytes, and get out!

    1. There are Jews in the world,
      There are Buddhists.
      There are Hindus and Mormons and then,
      There are those that follow Mohammed,
      But I’ve never been one of them.

      I’m a lefty moonbat,
      I’ve been batty since the day I was born.
      And if there’s one thing to say about moonbats, is
      They hate anything that is warm.

      You don’t have to be a six-tonner,
      Unless your Al Gore and his mates.
      You don’t have to have any clothes on,
      Hippies get carbon rebates.


      Every firm is hated,
      Every firm is bad.
      If carbon’s generated,
      Al gets very mad.

      Every firm is hated
      There’s no firm that’s great.
      If a firm’s successful,
      Al gets quite irate.

      Let the heathens drive cars
      On the dusty ground.
      Al will make them pay
      For each greenhouse gas not found.

      Australians and Americans
      Drive theirs just anywhere.
      But Al likes those who treat their
      Footprint with more care.

      There’s no firm that’s useful.
      There’s no firm that’s fine.
      Al wants everybody’s.
      Yours and yours
      And mine.

      Let the Pagan drive theirs
      O’er mountain, hill or plain
      Al will strike them down
      For each mile that’s done in vain.


      Every firm is hated…

    1. I don’t want to be a prime minister of a country that doesn’t make things any more

      What a strange thing to say!  When I visit my mother I usually have to drive past a set of buildings that used to house a white-goods factory.  It ceased to do so after the metal workers’ union drove most of their members’ jobs overseas with their incessant demands (and strikes) for more money and a shorter working week.

    1. do the voters in the marginals read it?

      Maybe what she really means to say is, “Do the voters in the marginals know how to read?  Probably not.  So pictures have gotta be worth something.”

    1. Dminor, whatever you’re doing, I hope you’re being well recompensed.  People with a tenth of your talent are being paid fortunes in Hollywood.

    1. Saw the Courier Mail in question in the supermarket yesterday and laughed out loud at first, thinking the subs were taking the piss out of Kev. The quote, the pic, they layout – it looked like a sarcastic joke. Then I realised they were boosting him, seeing the front page as one big ad for The Man They Want To Be King.

    1. Nice one Dminor.
      Watched the Classic Albums show about Cream’s Disraeli Gears. The lyricist who worked with them (Pete Brown?) told how he would get grungy voiced phone calls from the lads saying “We’re in the studio … need words!”
      He recounted how they were sitting around in the studio at about 4am one morning. Jack Bruce played the riff which was to become “Sunshine of Your Love”. They had no words for it. Brown, ready to go home, looked out the window and said “It’s getting near dawn …”
      So it went.

    1. The sky would be brighter
      And everything would be OK?

      In the middle of a major drought the ALP wants sunny skies. That’s saying stuff the farmers, stuff the rural towns and stuff the suburbanites who are trying to sustain their gardens amid water restrictions. The only people who want bright skies at the moment are the inner city residents kicking back in outdoor restaurants.
