He's not a nonentity - he's a sloppy dog turd in the middle of the kitchen floor.

“Western Australia has had an unprecedented drop in revenue both from iron ore royalties, oil and gas royalties and taxes across the board – the largest drop any state has received since the Great Depression and yet the GST share continues to decline,” he told the ABC.

“There is something fundamentally wrong with the system, the Commonwealth Grants Commission is oblivious to it and refuses to address it, and it’s just unacceptable and is bringing into question the strength of the federation.”

He said the state’s economic woes could be fixed if the GST carve-up was fair.

“I’m the Treasurer of Western Australia and I’m facing a multi-billion-dollar deficit because the state is being fleeced to the tune of $4 billion,” Dr Nahan said.

“If I had my fair share of GST, we would be in large surplus.

“As a result we’re borrowing money to send to South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, ACT for them to spend on government services and we’re in a deficit – this is outrageous.

“You cannot continue to fleece the state like this.”

Keating has probably been too busy writing his own stuff to write any of my stuff.

I find Mr Andrews pretty gruesome, though - did you think my earlier analysis flattered him?

Is he thinking he can scare the crossbench senate into accepting the legislation?

Turnbull is nowhere near the politician that Abbott is. Such a shame TA has the charisma of a rock.

Actually, when it looked like it was only Downer she had to challenge she was half a chance.

And then the souffle rose again.

Meanwhile, the ABCC Bill gets voted down again and Mal has his DD trigger.

Interestingly, 4 Senators voted with the govt so they were only 2 votes off.
