Stuart Robert’s alabaster history wars

ON IT GOES, the Liberal Party attempting to recast Australia into its own image.

And if there was to be such an image, it would be an alabaster statue of a tall and impossibly noble-looking Captain Cook, in a huge tricorn hat, sword gallantly outstretched, with a knee-high leather boot grinding into Australia’s virgin soil a dusky native’s head.

Yes, the Liberal Party is trying to change the history books again.

Enter MP Stuart Robert, stage right. Stage Far-Right, to be precise.

Stuart Robert and Alan Tudge

Honestly??

Stuart Robert has said he does not know where the education minister Alan Tudge is, and bizarrely claimed to have been doing Tudge’s job for “almost 12 months”.

School students tripping up on Australia’s uneven playing field

Acting Education Minister Stuart Robert.

Proud graduate Captain Stuart Robert MP of Australia’s Noted College of Bastardisation and Sexual Abuse became the promoter and overseer of Australia’s worst-ever Social Welfare debacle ROBODEBT. He is now Minister in Charge of Education and blamed “dud teachers” in our government schools of dragging Australia down when compared with comparable results in the rest of the world. One can only suggest Robert was talking about himself having attended that now famous  Government College known as Duntroon. The “dud teachers” of  Duntroon it seems resulted in his ranking as the most corrupt MP among current LNP ranks and possibly the decade if not longer.Robert it seems was trying to explain why he’s such a corrupt and incompetant shithead.

Robert has a history of foot in mouth disease that is legend and ranks as the most self-serving and incompetent MP’s in LNP ranks standing shoulder to shoulder in that competition with ex-cop Peter Dutton. Dutton wins simply because he’s been there the longest.

The acting federal Education Minister Stuart Robert surely assumed he was chatting confidentially among friends last week when he told a private schools conference the sustained decline in the academic results of Australian 15-year-olds relative to their international peers is because of “dud teachers” in government schools. The “duds” were defined as the “bottom 10 per cent of teachers” who graduate from initial teaching courses notwithstanding they “can’t read and write”. But private schools are dud-free zones, the acting minister purred to his audience, because principals have the power to hire and fire and are naturally intolerant of dud educators, and if the government could only “bottle” the success of these schools, the nation’s youth would rise beyond mediocrity.

Australian researchers condemn government’s ‘political and short-sighted’ funding

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 does a house or a pickpocket your wallet. He hopes it will go unnoticed. Whether it’s Rolex watches,his personal expenses or NDIS funding Roberts loves to make out he’s the invisible man and wasn’t there. He’s not a representative politician rather than the phantom who only represents himself and his party’s not his electorate or the common good..

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.

And this guy’s the Assistant Treasurer? – » The Australian Independent Media Network

When David Speers asked federal member for Fadden, Stuart Robert, about Scott Morrison’s jobs promise, Robert replied they would be full-time jobs just like the million that Tony created.

This, of course, is rubbish.

When pressed about it, he dithered around finally saying “We’ll see what the economy throws up”.

Exactly. Unless the government starts re-employing some of the multitude of people they have sacked, it will not be them creating jobs.

Perhaps Robert’s slip could be forgiven, except it adds to a very long list which begs the question of why this guy is still in parliament let alone being recently promoted to the position of Assistant Treasurer in the latest iteration of the ATM government.

In October last year, when forced to repay $38,000 he’d billed to taxpayers for home internet charges – $2000 a month, 20 times more than the average claimed by other MPs – Robert told a local radio station that “I probably just wasn’t paying enough attention” as the bills went through.

Roll Up, Roll Up, Rolex Robert Rides Again! – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Unlike Ian Macfarlane who feels that he’s just wasted on the backbench… Mm, perhaps I should rephrase that as it may be a little ambiguous. What he actually said that he didn’t want to be a “passenger” by just sitting around on the backbench. Which sort of makes one wonder about his opinion of all…
