Are we supposed to be pleased with the
Phoney’ Abbott claim that he’s the man
we need to get slack out of this already
red economy and drag ourselves back
into the black? It would be like trusting
Clyde Palmer to honestly pay his taxes
without engaging in shyster games – &
all the while smiling sweetly, no less

But ‘Bugger Lugs’ has a point – if CEOs
of major industry paid his wages direct
out of their profits as guarantees, then
told us the truth from whence it came,
we’d have a winner’s assurance of who
screws who in real time
