Christopher Pyne, the pandering, simpering prince

Posted on 07 March 2012

Christopher Pyne: “I think the sadness of Wayne Swan’s unbridled attack on people who have worked hard and done well and taken risks and invested their money […]

Wikipedia: “Georgina “Gina” Hope Rinehart […] is the heiress of Hancock Prospecting and the daughter of the late mining magnate Lang Hancock and Hope Margaret Nicholas.

Rinehart was involved in a protracted legal battle with her stepmother, Rose Porteous, over the circumstances that led to the death of Hancock, and the distribution of his estate.

Rinehart first appeared on the 1992 BRW Rich 200 list […] following the death of her father earlier that year.”

Worked hard and taken risks and invested their money? One of the fatcats inherited almost all of it through an acrimonious inheritance battle. The other fatcats have done bugger all other than dig shit out of the publicly-owned ground, profiting from the poorly-constructed royalty scheme as commodity prices soar. It’s not genius. It’s not even that risky.

    I don’t give a fuck how they made their mOney….swann made the attack with reference to the fat cat desire to monopolise the media etc…..pot…kettle…..black! See: new fed gov media oversight legislatiom released last week. The money or how they made it, isn’t the issue.

    Not defending Swan, he’s an awful shit. I’m attacking the “job-creator” bullshit US-imported rhetoric.

    The media oversight legislation hasn’t got a hope in hell of getting anywhere, anyway.

    I hate everyone, basically. X
    🙂 yeah well no one should pity the rich but honestly…..wow that Rose Porteous bit was a revelation however…..! Ew. Did watch a great doc on Andrew Forrest/SEEMS to do a lot of good….of course he might have paid for the publicity……..oh this world is revolting.

    Ain’t it though. The political and public commentary climate has made me extremely misanthropic lately. Sleep well, if you can!
