So... bets on a timeframe for the coup?FOREIGN Minister Julie Bishop will be parachuted into the Victorian election campaign on Friday with Liberal strategists describing Tony Abbott as “box office poison’’.
Furious over the decision to hike petrol prices during the election campaign, Victorian Liberals are already blaming the Prime Minister’s poor popularity as a factor dragging down the Coalition.
But the rising star of the Abbott Government, deputy Liberal leader Julie Bishop, has been plucked out as the most palatable federal choice to campaign in the dying days of the state election.
Ms Bishop, who is travelling back to Australia from New York where she has spent the week at the United Nations has confirmed the trip.
“I am looking to rejoining the campaign, after several previous visits in support of the Victorian government,’’ she said.
Communications Minister Malcolm Turnbull has defended Tony Abbott's election eve comment that there would be no cuts to the ABC, saying he did not believe the Prime Minister intended to give the impression the national broadcaster would be exempt from any future belt tightening.
In an interview on ABC's 7.30 on Wednesday, Mr Turnbull said he and Treasurer Joe Hockey had made it clear during the election campaign that cuts to address the budget deficit had to made across the board and that "the ABC and SBS couldn't be exempt and that we would be seeking to address waste and inefficiencies".
He said some had been calling for the ABC's digital presence to be reduced and that Mr Abbott was reassuring voters this was not the Coalition's intention.
War is peace, freedom is slavery."These are not cuts. The ABC has been exempted from efficiency dividends for the last 20 years, efficiency dividends which apply to every other department in Government, every other agency of Government that is funded by the taxpayer," he told AM.
"The Prime Minister absolutely told the truth. We are not making cuts, we're making sure that what happens to the ABC happens with every other taxpayer-funded organisation across Government, and that's that it operates as efficiently as possible, and that is our responsibility.
Turnbull will never again be embraced by the middle left.
Oh, another tip that I just got reminded of:
Once you see the Batomys, tighten your anus.
Actual tips for that prick of a fight:Spoiler:- The objective is to kill the radiators, then whittle down the tank itself afterwards
- Turrets take one lancer shot plus one tank shot to destroy
- 1 grenade down the radiator will destroy it
- Try to take out the left-hand radiator first, as once Selvaria appears, it'll be much harder to approach that side
- You don't need to kill Selvaria. The Batomys is the only objective.
Ugh, I saved and loaded and loaded and loaded and saved and loaded and ... well, you get the point. Also only used lancers in the second stage which made the fight a bit harder than necessary, didn't realize grenades would've worked. A bullshit fight, anyways - I hope there's not too many like that or I'll just quit somewhere along the way. That just wasn't fun.
