IS ‘CRITICAL THINKING‘ being taught in Our School system any more … or if it is perhaps the power of the Press Moguls has diminished it?
The opening sentence in this report by the ‘STAFF WRITER’ rings alarm bells for us at CAAN …
‘A report has claimed that former Labor leader Bill Shorten wanted his election campaign to ‘soften’ his image – but instead, the party decide to ‘confuse’ voters with unpopular policy detail.‘
Compare the pair … Bill Shorten and the Ad Man with the Cap? The Ad Man who wrote the policy for the developer lobby, the Property Council of Australia, as National Manager of Research and Policy from the age of 21 to 26 … and the property lobby runs through his veins, expect the Coalition to throw more support at FHBs for the housing market‘.
From the cap to wearing a Crown of thorns …
DEVELOPERS summon First Home Buyer patsies
Then Newscorp writes:
‘but instead, the party decide to ‘confuse’ voters with unpopular policy detail.’
Is this ‘Construct’ the consequence of the Coalition ‘fear and lies Campaign’ about an alleged Labor Party death tax; the Franking Credits which were not to affect pensioners but the Rich Listers; the changes to negative gearing were about encouraging the building of ‘new homes’, and to grandfather investment in ‘established homes’ … to open the housing market for First Home Buyers …
WAS this so-called unpopular policy a consequence of this ‘fear and lies Campaign’ … because the Liberals in fact had no policies! Was it The Libs who called for details, it would seem, to conceal the fact they went to the Election without any policies?
Until the week prior to the Election with the launch of the Coalition’s FHB scheme when Scomo said:
“We want to see more first-home buyers in the market, absolutely, and we don’t want to see people’s house prices go down” ….
PERHAPS undertake some ‘critical thinking’ about the remainder of the text? Sadly from the Mogul’s print media the misinformation spreads across television networks, polls, WeChat, UTube, and our social media … to become ‘Gospel’!
ALP ‘denied Bill Shorten’s election campaign cry for help’: report
A report has claimed that former Labor leader Bill Shorten wanted his election campaign to ‘soften’ his image – but instead, the party decide to ‘confuse’ voters with unpopular policy detail.

|DAILYTELEGRAPH.COM.AU1:43Who will be the next Labor leader?|
With the Labor Parties election loss and the announcement that Bill Shorten will step down as leader.
Former Labor leader Bill Shorten urged the ALP to help him soften his image during the election campaign but was turned down, in one of several disagreements between the leader and the party that have emerged ahead of the release of a review into the election defeat.
The Weekend Australian reports that the review will say that Labor’s campaign was poorly organised, contained confusing messages and unpopular policies, as well as an unconvincing advertising campaign.
Mr Shorten’s personal unpopularity will also be highlighted as a key reason for Labor’s shock defeat to Scott Morisson in May.
CAAN: WHO owns ‘The Daily Telegraph’, ”The Australian’ and 9 News from where it would appear the reports of ‘Bill Shorten’s alleged personal unpopularity, and an ‘unconvincing advertising campaign’ emanate from …
The post-election review will say the ALP should have worked harder to shield Mr Shorten against attacks from the Coalition on his character – even though Mr Shorten raised this as a campaign priority.
CAAN: ‘The Herald Sun’ where this article, ‘Bill Shorten accepts responsibility for shock May election defeat’ was published is also owned by Rupert Murdoch, and is a subsidiary of News Corp Australia … with a little critical thought … one may begin to question the veracity, the truthfulness of this report by this subsidiary of the Murdoch Media …
Mr Shorten wanted the ALP campaign to counter his low personal popularity with direct-to-camera advertising, but this was not supported.
CAAN: With daily reports of the alleged ‘low personal popularity’ of Bill Shorten … was he being targeted by Murdoch? Repeated often enough … that it must be true … that it has become Gospel ?
… as CAAN Page Admin learnt early in its career … it is the Media that wins elections …
Personal attacks against the then Opposition leader by Scott Morrison concerned Mr Shorten to the extent that he asked Labor national secretary Noah Carroll to respond with a negative advertising blitz on the Prime Minister. But the answer was no, The Weekend Australian reports.
Labor’s six-person review team will meet in Canberra on Sunday to begin finalising the report.
According to The Weekend Australian, the review team will find that voters were confused by Labor’s excessive campaign messages and they disliked the party’s policies on taxation and climate change.
CAAN: According to the Gospel of ‘The Weekend Australian’ that Australian voters were confused by Labor’s campaign messages, but how much more excessive were the ad campaigns, and fear and lies campaigns of The Coalition? Funded by the Big End of Town and was it approved by our Big Neighbour to the North?
Labor’s social media and advertising response to attacks on policies was ineffective and the campaign was poorly organised, with staff unclear about who was responsible for what during the campaign.
CAAN: Give some critical thought to the veracity of this. Perhaps Labor needs to attack The Coalition more!
The review was ordered in the wake of Labor’s disastrous result in May when it received a primary vote of just 33.3 per cent nationally, with especially poor outcomes in Queensland and Western Australia.
CAAN: The Election was close; the Coalition won with a slim majority of 77 seats in the Lower House, one more than it needs to govern in majority. That’s all!
As Ms Liu holds the Morrison Government’s majority in the palm of her hand so here we are.
Was the Labor loss in Queensland largely due to the $80M Ad campaign of Clive Palmer and his UNITED AUSTRALIA PARTY? Whereby it appears he deceived many into the belief he would make Australia great and reduce taxes etc … Clive was not elected but his Party preferences went to the Coalition!
Labor’s six-person review team will meet in Canberra on Sunday to begin finalising the report as the party debates what its policy agenda should look like under new leader Anthony Albanese – especially on climate change and emissions targets, an issue dividing the party.
CAAN: Published in The Daily Telegraph; owned by Murdoch …
Although the party ran a limited “soft” advertising campaign featuring Mr Shorten, his wife Chloe and their family, the former leader thought there should be more of this.
But the campaign team pushed on with highlighting Labor’s positive policy agenda rather than tackling Mr Shorten’s electoral unpopularity head on.
CAAN: At CAAN we believe Labor was moving in the right direction concerning Housing Affordability, by encouraging investors to invest in new property to open up the established housing market for First Home Buyers, more benefits for HealthCare, Education, and tackling Money Laundering in our domestic housing and more!
Yet the situation was dire: despite a mild popularity increase during the campaign, analysis of Newspoll results shows Mr Shorten had a negative net satisfaction rating for more than four years – worse than any other opposition leader.
A senior campaign source told The Weekend Australian that Mr Shorten’s popularity was not the main reason the party lost; it was because it had too many policies and failed to defend them against a scare campaign.
CAAN: Yet again a report in The Advertiser by Staff writers, of News Corp Australia Network
Is it NEWS CORP that is alleging Labor had too many policies? Is that because the Coalition had too few?
UNFORTUNATELY for the Constituency, and democracy with so much high wealth behind the Coalition, and its larger share of political donations, how will we in Australia achieve a fair and honest election result?
