RSPTTTC – Don’t Know What It Means to Me
Last week, we looked at the bogan’s distaste for Kevin Rudd’s use of its taxpayer dollars for funding an advertising campaign to convince it that it shouldn’t be convinced by another advertising campaign that a tax on an industry it may wish to work in is bad or good for the country.
Confused? Good, that’s just how everyone wants you.
This week, let’s take a look at the great big new tax Mk II that the bogan feels constitutionally obliged to hate. The tax, which was suggested to the Henry Tax Review by the Minerals Council of Australia, effectively creates a more effective way of taxing a ridiculously profitable industry by funding expensive exploration and establishment of mines by taxing future large profits at a higher rate.
The bogan stopped paying attention at ‘Henry Tax Review’, and is now relying on television to tell it what to think and say. A bloke called Twiggy, who alternates between $4,000 suits and fluorescent vests and t-shirts depending upon the TV show he’s on, maintains that this tax is going to destroy the universe. Although the tax will help the country avoid excessive debt in coming years, and the bogan dislikes debt unless it assists in paying for 3D! televisions, the bogan trusts Twiggy, because he’s a bloke called Twiggy, and he wears a fluorescent vest.
In a game of expensive ad-tennis, KRudd smashed a return with the aforementioned taxpayer-funded ads; and with all the velocity and spin of a Sam Stosur groundstroke, the MCA volleyed back:
The bogan is obviously impressed with vague and pseudo-scientific infographics, but this one fails to be as compelling as the ‘cleaning globules circumnavigating a tooth’ animation from toothpaste ads, which allow the bogan to experience maxtreme freshness in visual form. In the realm of political infographics, the MCA comes a distant second to Abbott’s big red Muslim invasion arrows. It is also interesting that it finishes with a much larger punctuation mark than the ALP’s big moving red question mark.
ALP Score: 3 Cleaning Globules out of 10
