In what was clearly another example of ABC false advertising , this supposed live telecast from Port Macquarie shows walking dead PM , Malcolm Turnbull , supported by peasoup green stage prop , delivering a theatrical warning designed to scare the pants and Bermuda yachting jackets off pensioners in the Cayman Islands .
It was later revealed that the PM thought he was campaigning in Queensland, at Port Douglas, not Port Macquarie , New South Wales , when he turned on his latest Kill Bill tirade from the grave .
The desperate Coalition Kill Bill campaign continued in that arena colourfully named by Paul Keating as a place of unrepresentative swill, the Senate , where ALP leader Bill Shorten was accused of grinding the bones of hard working Burke and Wills to make tax free garlic bread for CFMEU champagne and caviar picnics.
At times waving her arms about like a Polynesian poi dancer , Senator Concetta Fierravanti-Wells , soon tipped to appear in another production of the South Pacific musical , possibly as Bloody Mary , receiving coaching for the part while recently in Tonga, verbally used a Maori mere mere on perfidious Shorten , saying he was intent on turning hundreds of thousands of pioneer pensioners into long pig at ALP fund raisers .
Grabbing an unrelated to the question piece of paper, Senator Fierravanti -Wells , Minister for International Development and the Pacific, also took a swipe at the ACTU head Sally McManus who had made a reasonable speech at the National Press Club clearly illustrating that Australian workers are being screwed and want changes .
Then the Liberal senator resumed the Coalition funk bunker full frontal attack on the ALP, which had the Opposition and some on the Coalition side scratching their head .
The senator was asked to provide the number of pensioners who had had their entitlements cut under the Coalition . She refused to do so , pranced about as if doing the Fijian fire walk , waved her arms, pointed . The ALP stated for Hansard the figure was in the area of a million .
ABC Media Watch pointed out that the Australian newspaper had tried to stitch up Shorten over the imputation tax policy in a big spread , the real situation hidden in a few paragraphs near the end of the blast . An article in the Canberra Times explained how vested interests and combatants are used to scare and confuse over negative gearing and the dividend imputation tax.
The Coalition became increasingly hysterical as the days went by when it became clear its branded tax imputation "massive grab" attack was being increasingly regarded in the community as another giant scare campaign . This was despite the Murdoch media pack and assorted shock jocks supporting the wailing of the Turnbull zombie squad.
The Grattan Institute began driving nails into the coffins of the jibbering , pop-eyed zombies , one of them a reporter who seems to be suffering from the Andrew Peacock syndrome , his greying locks turning prematurely black , by saying half those affected , apart from their home , had assets worth millionaires , not paying taxes. Shorten, therefore could not be called a blood sucking vampire, a pocket picker by wanting to deprive these individuals of a handout which , some economists agree, the nation cannot continue afford to pay .
