Comment of the Day
One Nation would Stop the Boats now!
The only language these people will ever understand is to turn the boats around, or, deport them on arrival! They are here to bludge off the Australian tax payer through our generous welfare system.
We now know that these people have sold up in their homelands to pay the boat captains to get them to Australia, so they can live off our welfare! We now know these are NOT asylum seekers, they are not refugees, they are lying illegals that should be deported on arrival back to the port they came from!
The blame rests with Labor for Australia's complete loss of our border sovereignty! These people are not "asylum seekers" they are not "refugees" these people have crossed up to eight Muslim countries to get to Indonesia, pay boat captains $20,000 Australian to get on their boats and when they leave Indonesia for their "Pot of Gold" Australia, they destroy their ID.
Our government is now being coerced into accepting them because they bring children. Do any of you see these people as willful bloody liars and we Australians are now throwing our vulnerable seniors/pensioners out of their homes to make room for these bludgers!
We are the laughing stock of the world

The sooner this bubble bursts the better. Honest scientists are finally emerging with rock-solid evidence that the climate of the Earth cannot be regulated by taxing and attempting to control carbon dioxide emissions.
Advice to Courier Mail editors
25th. November 2012
How pathetic and demeaning the print media becomes when editors, in this instance the Courier-Mail editors, sanction by printing and allowing to air the spin rubbish of Paul Syvert‘s article on 20-11-2012 “ Touch of the absurd in a war of slurs”.
It is embarrassing to read his diversion tactics on this very serious issue; where the Prime Minister Julia Gillard was involved in a dodgy fund registration involving AWU members through her Slater-Gordon law firm.
Clearly this is still a very much alive and serious unfinished story as The Australian newspaper canvasses the missing files issue 20-11-2012
“ Coalition calls for action on fraud file” whilst on the same day on this same issue the micro-mind of Syvert talks sideways with ongoing obsession “ chattering class” “soap opera” and “conspiracy theories” all written in defense of the indefensible Julia Gillard.
Quite frankly the larger than real life photo of Julia is now a real turn off as is the case when she appears on TV.
The fact is, this is a very serious issue that should be fully and openly investigated in the public arena. It is about an ideology driven Prime Minister, unelected by the people, who has the potential to do enormous social and economic damage to the people of Australia.
These are the facts Syvert and the Courier-Mail management should inform the people of impartially and in the correct domain.
For Syvert to head off any possible name calling towards himself , like bigot, he should set his mind at “ impartial in depth investigative journalism” in order to counter, with undisputed facts if he can, the written suggestion that Julia Gillard is indeed a Fabian Communist.

INHUMANE? Oh Really?
I watched with interest a man on television who is an advocate for the illegal immigrants now being housed on Manus Island, PNG. He stated the conditions are inhumane and gave a few examples. Firstly he said it is very hot in PNG. Apparently it is not hot in Afghanistan and northern Pakistan where these people came from (nor no doubt is it freezing cold in winter).
Nor was it hot and crowded in the villages where they once lived or on the boats they paid handsomely to come to Australia on. Another of the so-called reasons for the inhumane conditions is because they put gravel down between the tents, and covered up the grass. I live and work in PNG, and yes I live in a tent. It is a workplace health and safety condition that we gravel around tents so it does not turn into a muddy messy, creating a mosquito breeding ground and dirty conditions.
Yet this man complains that these people are given what is currently the best safe practice. When you live in a wet tropical place you do not leave bare dirt to walk on in your living areas. Any fool knows this. Apparently one fool doesn’t !
Manus Island is a tropical paradise. Beautiful water and lovely tropical surrounds and very friendly people. Most people pay to visit such places. I would gladly go there any time. Perhaps these idiots who sprout off all this garbage should find out what they are talking about before they embarrass themselves on national television.
By the way, having lived in a tent for the last three years in places far less hospitable than Manus Island, I was never uncomfortable or sick, and I had to work 12 hours a day, seven days a week at the same time. Do not feel sorry for these people. They should be thanking their lucky stars! They’ve never had it so good.

Carbon Tax Explained
The images and cartoons we will be posting in the next couple of days are from foreign papers. This demonstrates an irrefutable fact that this Labor Government has made us the laughing stock of the world!
Australian Tax Payers are indeed victims of this socialist scam to redistribute our wealth, without a mandate! Demand an early election to sack this putrid socialist communist Labor Government!

Self righteous Media hysterical again.....
Like you are all perfect...........NOT!
You are all over the top with Alan Jones' comments regarding Comrade Poverty (Prime Minister Gillard) Fathers' passing . His comments were 100% correct stating Gillard is a liar and 100% wrong assuming what her father thought about his daughter's lying!
50% correct is not bad when compared with the damage Gillard is doing to this Nation with far less than 50% support!
Remember the self righteous sanctimonious media sanctions deliberate vindictive bias against Pauline Hanson and One Nation relentlessly for years and still counting!

Sue Me....Pickering on Slater and Gordon
27th. September 2012
Good One Larry!!
Apart from having the sort of head you’d never get tired of kicking, AWU boss Paul Howes’ record of protecting workers’ interests is abysmal.
Police can’t act without a complaint and there are no complaints coming from Howes or the HSU East’s Williamson.
It is no secret as to why.
When someone like the HSU East’s Kathy Jackson files a complaint, Bill Shorten shuts her down by placing the union in administration. Anyway, Craig Thomson is nothing but a small fish among schools of sharks in an ongoing feeding frenzy.
Howes’ union crony and co-Rudd assassin, Bill Shorten, does nothing either. (Except to plead it's an isolated case.) In fact, he goes to extreme lengths to obfuscate the blatant theft.
Left wing law firms have become union savvy and unions have become Left wing law firm savvy. Paul Howes, makes no effort to recover those stolen members’ funds. I wonder why.
The Gillard Government is a creation of corrupt unions, is stacked with ex-unionists (more than 50 of them) and protected by corrupt union bosses. The people who could bring down this corrupt Government (Craig Thomson, Doug McClelland and Ian Cambridge) have either been dumped or promoted to the union controlled FWA.
Oakeshott and Windsor will not walk the plank for the sake of this nation.
As an official of the ARU I quickly learnt the modus operandi of major unions. It wasn’t pretty then... it’s grotesquely ugly now.
The silence is deafening from the Left wing law firm, Slater & Gordon, as accusations continue to fly from credible sources.
It seems strange that a law firm would not immediately sue or at least take out an injunction against its accusers.
Well, here you go boys, I’ll make it easy for you.
• You (Slater & Gordon) have been complicit in fraudulent activities involving AWU officials.
• You aided and abetted union officials in the theft of funds rightfully belonging to AWU members.
• You knew the accounts those stolen funds moved into and out of were fraudulent accounts set up by a certain Julia Eileen Gillard, your Partner.
How’s that? Enough for you yet? Okay, here’s some more:
• You aided and abetted a Bruce Morton Wilson in the dispersal of those stolen funds.
• You represented your client (the AWU) in clear conflict of interest.
• You provided a loan to Bruce Wilson when you knew the loan assisted in the fraud.
• You have done nothing to recover or assist to recover funds misappropriated by your clients, Bruce Wilson and Ralph Blewitt.
• You refuse to release documentation detailing the above.
Is that enough boys, or should I go on? Come on, it's not that hard, surely. Sue me! You’re a law firm aren’t you? You can even give yourself mates’ rates.
There are more than 250,000 people who will see this article via blogs, 10,000 viral emails, Facebook, “The Pickering Post” and its Facebook. God knows how many they will share it with!
I notice you have bumped up your TV advertisements to convince people of your newfound “ethics”. Are you feeling the pinch?
Waste of money I’d say. Oh, unless it’s not yours..
What is it you say, “No Win, No Fee”? Well, you won’t win this one, so you’re home free. You can’t really lose can you?
Oh, yes you bloody can... and you know it!
You are a disgrace and menace to the industrial law you espouse, the people you represent and to the legal profession in general.
Come clean or come get me, you thieving, degenerate shysters!
What's an Infidel?
27th. September 2012
WHAT'S AN INFIDEL?
This is a true story and the author, Rick Mathes, is a well-known leader in prison ministry.
The man who walks with God always gets to his destination.
If you have a pulse you have a purpose.
The Muslim religion is the fastest growing religion per capita in the United States, especially in the minority races!!
Last month I attended my annual training session that's required for maintaining my state prison security clearance.
During the training session there was a presentation by three speakers representing the Roman Catholic, Protestant
I was particularly interested in what the Islamic had to say. The Muslim gave a great presentation of the basics of Islam,
After the presentations, time was provided for questions and answers.
When it was my turn, I directed my question to the Muslim and asked: 'Please, correct me if I'm wrong,
If that's the case, can you give me the definition of an infidel?'
There was no disagreement with my statements and, without hesitation, he replied,
I responded, 'So, let me make sure I have this straight. All followers of Allah have been commanded to kill
The expression on his face changed from one of authority and command to that of a little boy who had just
He sheepishly replied, 'Yes.'
I then stated, 'Well, sir, I have a real problem trying to imagine The Pope commanding all Catholics to kill
I continued, 'I also have a problem with being your friend when you and your brother clerics are telling your
You could have heard a pin drop as the Imam hung his head.
Needless to say, the organizers and/or promoters of the 'Diversification' training seminar were not happy with
In less than twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in Australia to elect the Prime Minister!
I think everyone in the Australia should be required to read this, but with the 'multi cultural', politically correct
Islam in Australia...Time to wake up!
THE NATION.......SEPTEMBER 2012
ISLAM IN AUSTRALIA - TIME TO WAKE UP
I remember writing various letters to the editor over the last couple of years expressing my grave concerns that militant Islam will increasingly rear it’s ugly head in Australia as the Muslim population grows. Of course none of these letters ever got published. They are too politically incorrect and also coming from the president of One Nation Queensland almost certainly guarantees it goes straight into the rubbish bin.
In every European country as the Muslim percentage of the population grows, so does their public demonstrations and antisocial violent behaviour. This is a world wide trend. If Australia’s politicians think we are going to be spared because we pander to their every whim and demand, they are sadly mistaken. Islam is on the march, they do not need to wage a conventional war to take over our society (something they are not capable of doing ), all they need to do is to flood us with so-called refugees and then breed us into a minority.
In Europe where the average birth rate for the Christian indigenous population is around 1.6 children per couple, Muslims have an average of 8 children per couple. Mathematically they will number more than 50 percent of the entire western European population within 50 years. Europe WILL be Islamic in our children’s lifetime!
Australia’s Muslim population has not yet reached the critical mass it requires to steamroll its way into a majority position—yet! If we allow the boats to continue to invade our homeland and ultimately we never send any of them back (only a few percent) even after the so-called offshore processing which is now back in favour. 97% of John Howard’s Liberals offshore processed asylum seekers were eventually quietly sneaked back into Australia with late night flights in Sydney. All the offshore processing did was delay their ultimate arrival in Australia.
The riots in Sydney this month, caused by a low budget movie in the U.S.A. shows these invaders do NOT consider themselves Australian, nor do they appreciate the kindness and acceptance into our society they have been given. They are first and utmost, MUSLIMS, above all else. Why do they riot here, attack Australian police men and women, destroy property because of a supposed insult from a nothing low budget private movie made by a few individuals in the U.S.A.? How do they conceive that this is reason and justification to attack Australia, it’s people, it’s police, and its tolerance of others opinions?
In Libya they killed the American ambassador and his staff. A man who had proven to be both a friend and great help to the people of Libya. In many Islamic countries they attacked any so called Western interests they could find. Is this the religion of peace and understanding these murderous primitive idiots and their do-gooder supporters in Australia try to tell us it is?
Make no mistake, if we are too cowardly to make a stand in Australia right now, if we continue to ignore the issue, if we continue to think “it’s not my problem”, if we think the politicians will solve it, then you can start explaining to your children and grandchildren why they face a bleak future and why you were too gutless or stupid to stand up and protect your own country and your own society, your own way of life, free speech and freedom of religion. We cannot preach Christianity in their countries, why would we suppose when Muslims become the majority in Australia they will continue to allow us to openly practice our Christian religion?
Australians will one day be fighting in the streets against these “people of peace”, against ISLAM!
Often the only way to stop a cancer is to cut it out. I do not feel Australia has to respond to anyone’s demands for asylum. These people are mostly not asylum seekers, they are invaders. All these healthy fighting age men should be back in their own countries fighting the tyrants and dictators they claim to have fled from, not trying to turn our country into the dysfunctional state they have just come from. It is part of the plan and we are collectively too dumb to see it for what it is. How many of the so called majority of decent law abiding Muslims in Australia ever do anything to stop or control the extremists in their midst? None! They will never turn against a fellow Muslim, it is against the teachings of the Koran, is it not ? So the silent majority of Muslims are still part of the problem.
A few years ago when the Muslims were rioting in London carrying banners such as “Behead the non believers”, and “The next 9/11 is coming” etc, I said next it will be happening here. People laughed and said this would never happen in Australia as we give them no cause to hate us. Well it happened in Sydney in September 2012 . Interestingly the worst of the world wide riots, the murder of the U.S. ambassador, etc, occurred on, you guessed it ....September 11. A mere coincidence?
The fact is they DO hate us and always will. WE should not be afraid to offend them by being ourselves, everything we do as Christians offends them. Well THEY OFFEND ME! This is MY country and I want to keep it. I do not accept their primitive medieval religion.
We should not allow any more Muslim immigration into Australia. The post World War Two immigrants were mostly Christian and they never rioted or tried to change our society. They settled in, worked, accepted our lifestyle, made a better life for themselves, and made Australia a better place. There are plenty of Christians throughout the world badly in need of asylum and protection. I welcome them as immigrants to my country, for the sake of Australia and that of my children.
Do something now, or be held responsible!

9/11: PBS lets the cat out of the bag
Sooner or later the truth will prevail12th. September 2012
Your front page headline 'Labor backflip on dirty power angers Greens' (The Aust 6 Sept) demands an angry response - but not from the Green camp.
The continual reference to 'dirty power' reinforces the myth that coal-fired power stations are 'dirty'. The soil that grows our food and feeds the flowers is also dirty.
Burning camel dung to keep warm is filthy, and that is what today's coal-fired power stations have replaced.
Modern coal-fired stations with scrubbers in the chimneys to remove particulate matter and other nasties happens to be beneficial to the surrounding countryside - the dreaded carbon dioxide is a wonderful fertiliser.
Can you please clean up your headlines so that your readers again respect things which are beneficial to their lives.
The Curse of the 21st. Century
9/06/2012 The curse of the ‘21st Century.
England, France, Belgium, Holland and several other high level, major world governments, have denounced, as a complete failure, the post world war 2 experiment called multiculturalism.
The fact they are now grappling with its disastrous negative impact on prosperity and social harmony can not be denied.
In spite of all the clear evidence before them, pathetic Australian politicians and the media push the propaganda button at every opportunity, the latest being in the Australian on 27/28-6-2012.
On 27th June a story line commenting on a parliamentary enquiry into the nation’s acceptance of culturally diverse communities leads with and repeats the statement; “ Australians are comfortable with multiculturalism and racial diversity”.
Now does this suggest that Australia is the smartest country of all while other countries lie about this pox of their multiculturalism, or are we the liars?
I am sure intelligent people are appalled at this attempt to socially engineer a mind set against actual reality.
To its meager credit the committee has one thing correct when it states it would not recommend the introduction of a multicultural act because people resented being told what to think.
What they have clearly failed to do ,because they fear the answer is to actually ask all the people what they really think of the issue.
This situation has been drifting for 28 years from when the editorial in the Australian on 17/1/1984 raised the issue of multiculturalism and its effect on an Australian existence. It stated correctly; “ At no time has that decision been made by the majority of Australians”….. At present we seem to be forced in a direction not dictated by the majority of Australians.
This fact has not changed in 28 years and finally the same editorial asks the question that is still valid today; “ What kind of Australia do we want?”
Labor MP Maria Vamvakinou who chairs the current enquiry should realize her enquiry will lack credibility if in our democracy our politicians do not put before the Australian people two questions:
a) DO YOU SUPPORT ASSIMULATION BEFORE MULTICULTURALISM?
b) SHOULD PEOPLE REFUSING TO ASSIMILATE BE DEPORTED?

THIS IS SO INCREDIBLY WELL PUT AND I CAN HARDLY BELIEVE IT'S BY A YOUNG PERSON, A STUDENT!!!
WHATEVER HE RUNS FOR, I'LL VOTE FOR HIM.
Dear Australian Laborites, leftists, social progressives, socialists, Marxists and Gillard, et al:
We have stuck together since the late 1950's for the sake of the kids, but the whole of this latest election process has made me realize that I want a divorce. I know we tolerated each other for many years for the sake of future generations, but sadly, this relationship has clearly run its course.
Our two ideological sides of Australia cannot and will not ever agree on what is right for us all, so let's just end it on friendly terms. We can smile and chalk it up to irreconcilable differences and go our own way
Here is a model separation agreement:
Our two groups can equitably divide up the country by landmass each taking a similar portion. That will be the difficult part, but I am sure our two sides can come to a friendly agreement. After that, it should be relatively easy!
Our respective representatives can effortlessly divide other assets since both sides have such distinct and disparate tastes.
We don't like redistributive taxes so you can keep them. You are welcome to the ACTU, the Fabian Society and every member of Emily’s List. Since you hate guns and war, we'll take our firearms, the cops and the military.
We'll take the nasty, smelly oil industry and you can go with wind, solar and biodiesel. You can keep the ABC left wingers (particularly Kerry O'Brien) and Bob Brown. You are, however, responsible for finding an electric vehicle big enough to move all of them.
We'll keep capitalism, greedy corporations, pharmaceutical companies, Woolworths and the Stock Exchange. You can have your beloved lifelong welfare dwellers, dole bludgers, homeless, homeboys, hippies, druggies and boat people.
We'll keep the budgie smuggling, bike riding, volunteer firemen and lifesavers, greedy CEOs and rednecks. We'll keep the Bibles and the churches and give you SBS and the Greens.
You can make peace with Iran, Palestine and the Taliban and we'll retain the right to stand up and fight when threatened. You can have the greenies and war protesters. When our allies or our way of life are under assault, we'll help provide them security.
We'll keep our Judeo-Christian values. You are welcome to Islam, Scientology, Humanism, political correctness and Penny Wong. You can also have the U.N. But we will no longer be paying the bill.
We'll keep the 4WDs, utes and V8s. You can take every hybrid hatchback you can find.
We'll keep "Waltzing Matilda" and our National Anthem. I'm sure you'll be happy to keep in tune with Peter Garrett as he sings "Imagine", "I'd Like to Teach the World to Sing", "Kum Ba Ya", "We Are The World" and his recent big solo hit “Beds and Batts are Burning.”
We'll practice trickle down economics and you can continue to give trickle up poverty your best shot. Since it so often offends you, we'll keep our history, our name and our flag.
Would you agree to this? If so, please pass it along to other like-minded conservative Australians and if you do not agree, just hit delete. In the spirit of friendly parting, I'll bet you answer which one of us will need whose help in 15 years.

PS. Also, please take Lindsey Tanner, Wayne Swan, Alan Griffin, John Faulkner, Kevin Rudd, and Jenny Macklin with you.
PSS. And you won't have to press 1 for English when you call our country.
A German view of Islam

A German View of Islam
An email circulating
This is by far the best explanation of the Muslim terrorist situation I have ever read. His references to past history are accurate and clear. Not long, easy to understand, and well worth the read. The author of this email is Dr. Emanuel Tanya, a well-known and well-respected psychiatrist.
“A man, whose family was German aristocracy prior to World War II, owned a number of large industries and estates. When asked how many German people were true Nazis, the answer he gave can guide our attitude toward fanaticism. 'Very few people were true Nazis,' he said, 'but many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care.
I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.
We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace. Although this unqualified assertion may be true, it is entirely irrelevant. It is meaningless fluff, meant to make us feel better, and meant to somehow diminish the spectra of fanatics rampaging across the globe in the name of Islam.
The fact is that the fanatics rule Islam at this moment in history. It is the fanatics who wage any one of 50 shooting wars worldwide. It is the fanatics who systematically slaughter Christian or tribal groups throughout Africa and are gradually taking over the entire continent in an Islamic wave. It is the fanatics who bomb, behead, murder, or honor-kill.
It is the fanatics who take over mosque after mosque. It is the fanatics who zealously spread the stoning and hanging of rape victims and homosexuals. It is the fanatics who teach their young to kill and to become suicide bombers.
The hard, quantifiable fact is that the peaceful majority, the 'silent majority,' is cowed and extraneous.
Communist Russia was comprised of Russians who just wanted to live in peace, yet the Russian Communists were responsible for the murder of about 20 million people. The peaceful majority were irrelevant. China's huge population was peaceful as well, but Chinese Communists managed to kill a staggering 70 million people.
The average Japanese individual prior to World War II was not a warmongering sadist. Yet, Japan murdered and slaughtered its way across South East Asia in an orgy of killing that included the systematic murder of 12 million Chinese civilians; most killed by sword, shovel, and bayonet.
And who can forget Rwanda, which collapsed into butchery. Could it not be said that the majority of Rwandans were 'peace loving'?
History lessons are often incredibly simple and blunt, yet for all our powers of reason, we often miss the most basic and uncomplicated of points:
Peace-loving Muslims have been made irrelevant by their silence.
Peace-loving Muslims will become our enemy if they don't speak up, because like my friend from Germany, they will awaken one day and find that the fanatics own them, and the end of their world will have begun.
Peace-loving Germans, Japanese, Chinese, Russians, Rwandans, Serbs, Afghans, Iraqis, Palestinians, Somalis, Nigerians, Algerians, and many others have died because the peaceful majority did not speak up until it was too late. As for us who watch it all unfold, we must pay attention to the only group that counts--the fanatics who threaten our way of life.
Lastly, anyone who doubts that the issue is serious and just deletes this email without sending it on, is contributing to the passiveness that allows the problems to expand. So, extend yourself a bit and send this on and on and on! Let us hope that thousands, world-wide, read this and think about it, and send it on - before it's too late.

Consumer confidence plumeting!
AUSTRALIAN CONSUMER CONFIDENCE LOWER – DOWN 1.9PTS TO 108.7
LOWEST SINCE OCTOBER 1/2, 2011
Consumer Confidence is at 108.7pts (down 1.9pts in a week), according to the Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence Rating conducted last weekend (March 31/ April 1, 2012). Consumer Confidence is now 6.9 points lower than a year ago, April 2/3, 2011 (115.6), and at its lowest point for six months, since October 1/2, 2011 (108.6).
The fall in Consumer Confidence has been primarily driven by a fall in confidence about the Australian economy over the next five years.
Australians are less confident about Australia’s economy over the long-term with 32% (down 3%) of Australians expecting Australia to have ‘good times’ economically over the next five years (the lowest since August 13/14, 2011) compared to 24% (up 3%) that expect ‘bad times’.
Australians are slightly less confident about Australia’s economy over the next twelve months with 29% (down 1%) of Australians expecting ‘good times’ economically over the next twelve months (the lowest since December 3/4, 2011) compared to 36% (unchanged) of Australians that expect Australia to have ‘bad times’ (the equal highest this year).
Gary Morgan says:
“Roy Morgan Consumer Confidence has fallen to its lowest since October 1/2, 2011 — down 1.9pts to 108.7. The fall came before the RBA left interest rates unchanged yesterday at 4.25%. I had warned that the RBA needed to act ‘ahead of the curve’ and cut interest rates to support the Australian economy before Treasurer Wayne Swan delivers what he has widely ‘touted’ as a tough Federal Budget next month.
“It can only be hoped that the RBA’s failure to act early is not later seen as a policy error. As the Roy Morgan March unemployment estimate shows for the fourth straight month more than 2 million Australians remain unemployed (9.3%) or underemployed (7.9%) — a very large and worrying figure which perhaps explains why expectations the Australian economy will have ‘good times’ over the next five years have dropped to their lowest level since August 13/14, 2011 (32%, down 3%). This factor was the biggest driver of this week’s fall in Consumer Confidence.
“This week’s drop in Consumer Confidence will be a worrying sign for retailers approaching the important Easter holiday period starting on Friday.”

The Dept. of Hot Air!
The plush new headquarters of the Department of Climate Change in Canberra / The Daily Telegraph Source:
No climate staff to be axed despite U-turn. $12m a year salary bill for 408 public servants Rent for new offices $8m
TAXPAYERS will pay $90 million a year to keep 408 public servants employed in the Federal Climate Change Department - despite most of them now having nothing to do until 2013.
More than 60 of them are classified as senior executive staff on salaries between $168,000 and $298,000 a year. Their salary bill alone will cost an estimated $12 million every year. A further $8 million will also be paid in rent for plush offices at Canberra's Constitution Place until 2012, where it is believed 500 new computers will be delivered this week. Despite Prime Minister Kevin Rudd's decision on Tuesday to suspend the failed Carbon Pollution Reduction Scheme until at least 2013, the department has ruled out plans to cut back staff.
A formal response by department secretary Martin Parkinson to a Senate estimates hearing on Tuesday - the same day as the scheme's suspension - claimed the department would not offer redundancies.
According to official figures, the number of top-paid bureaucrats being paid up to $298,000 a year has almost doubled since January this year from 39 to 61. That was to gear up for establishment of the Australian Climate Change Regulatory Authority, which will also now have no function.
Since last year with climate change employees having risen from an initial 246 to 408.
Of the 61 senior agency officials, only nine have been inherited from the scrapped home insulation scheme. The majority, 38, were employed on the CPRS and a further 19 were employed on the renewable energy scheme which has also been axed.
But none of the 408 staff within the department will be shed even though the department's key function, the CPRS, has been axed.
Its own tender documents reveal a lease contract of $16 million for its offices which expires in 2012.
