The return of the Australian Cringe.

Joe Hockey’s performance at the Lowery Institute on Thursday had me, as a confirmed part time atheist praying ‘please god don’t let this buffoon represent Australia at the G20 meeting.’ It is inconceivable to me that a person such as this could represent himself having any knowledge of economics, let alone represent Australia at a G20 meeting. He would definitely make a better stand-up comedian than treasurer, and the G20 delegates must surely laugh him out of the room. His performance as a comedian was even better than that of Abbott at Davos, and that was a tough act to follow.

Amongst his routine was a gem about how Australia had shown the world how to navigate the Global Financial Crisis but now was the time to recover from the excesses of the previous government. I am certain that the irony of Hockey claiming responsibility for successfully navigating the GFC will not be lost on the G20 delegates. The centrepiece of the Hockey comedy show was how Australia would guide and lead the world out of the current global economic crisis.

You can find a sound recording of Hockey’s act at http://bit.ly/1c8xX54 If you want a really good laugh it is worth listening to, but it is a pity it is not on video because it was wondrous to see how a true professional can keep a straight face whilst delivering the most ridiculous material.

  1. There’s no doubt that the clowns are running the circus Yosef with Tony as the Ringmaster. As for Jugular Joe claiming credit for Australia avoiding the GFC, lying is like breathing to these bastards and they’ve been doing for so long that they probably believe it themselves.
