DEBUNKING THE MYTH THAT THE LNP ARE GOOD ECONOMIC
 MANAGERS
The mainstream media is pushing hard for the fiction that the Coalition competently manages the economy, as Alan Austin reports.
Former fox news political editor Chris Stirewalt once said:
“The secret that Trump knows is that if you’re going to lie, go big.
Right?
Don’t waste your time on niggling little prevarications.
Go big.
And then what you do is wait for the obsequious toadies to come along and rationalise your lie.”
That sage advice on how to steal elections has been taken to heart by the Morrison Government and some journalists in Canberra’s Press Gallery.
The "big lie" in Australia is that the Coalition manages the economy better than Labor. It is a tried and true tactic, asserted repeatedly in every election since 1974.
It was not true then and has not been true any time since.
The economic evidence overwhelmingly indicates the opposite.

A group of 63 Australian Research Council laureates have written to acting Education Minister Stuart Robert with their fears research funding in Australia is becoming “political and short-sighted”

Stuart Robert once again played politics the way a cat burglar invades a house or a pickpocket your person. He hopes he personally will go unnoticed. Whether it’s Rolex watches, personal expenses or NDIS funding Roberts loves to make out he’s the invisible man and go unnoticed. He’s the real politician. The phantom who only represents himself and his party’s interests not ours.

The open letter signed by 63 present and former ARC laureate fellows, sent to Mr Robert and ARC chief executive Professor Sue Thomas on Tuesday, said the researchers were “very concerned in the way that applications for 2022 ARC Discovery Projects were managed”. They said the decision came a month late when university research offices were closed and staff would be unprepared to start work by January 1.
