Lazy lazy hummock swinger. Private business wont touch him with a barge pole. Hilarious to see him spit the dummy because he has again not been handed a leadership position on a plate. Doesn't have what it takes.

Will give Costello one thing.. At least he tried to stop Howard wasting hundreds of billions of dollars. He failed.

Yes because the government is supposed to be run at a profit isn't it? Pretty sure I'd have a little more captal up than you, so I'd say your opinion is worth chump change .

Actually I don't believe the government should run at a profit, I think they should spend all the money we give them on the infrastructure we need....no money in the bank till tax time comes around but everything fixed and being done for the citizens of Australia....that's how governments should be run...

Fortunately his 70 BILLION dollar hypothetical figure thrown around during debate and wasn't an actual quote, unless you're a muppet who allows the media.. and Wayne Swan, twist everything he says into a legal quote.

You should use "cock" and "arse" in the same paragraph more often.

Cock up by whom, because they have all managed to do such a fine job of cocking things up as it is, and Big Joe is the worst?
