Delivered flatly, calmly, just short of menacingly, his speech covers everything from environmental policy to penalty rates; from school funding to broadband; from the Trans-Pacific partnership to the shark cull. It includes so many incredible lines that it’s hard to pick the best one — but it’s probably the bit where he describes the Coalition’s leadership team as “blundering and technically illiterate”; the bit where he describes Abbott’s relationship with mining billionaires and media oligarchs as “awkward, and kind of revolting”; or the bit where he calls the current Government “a thin, greasy layer in the core sample of future political scientists”.
“Your thoughtless cancellation of half a billion dollars of Commonwealth funding for the Perth light-rail project has been noted,” he says at one point. “Your blank cheque for Colin Barnett’s bloody and unnecessary shark cull has been noted. Your attack on Medicare, on schools funding, on tertiary education; noted. The fact that your only proposal for environmental reforms thus far is to leave Minister Greg Hunt playing Solitaire for the next three years while you outsource his responsibilities to the same Premiere who presides over the shark cull? That’s been noted too.”
Please watch this!
I know I already reblogged this but fuck this man drives the point home.
THIS GUY! calling tony abnot out on his bullshit!
Well I know who’s getting my vote in the Senate election
no but lOOK AT HIS FACE. LOOK AT BLAINE ANDERSON’S FACE. HE LOOKS BROKEN AND TERRIFIED. SEBASTIAN CALLS HIM FLAWLESS AND BLAINE LOOKS LIKE HE WANTS TO STRIP HIS SKIN FROM HIS FLESH. PEOPLE COMPARE KURT’S TEXTS TO CHANDLER AND BLAINE’S TEXTS TO SEBASTIAN BUT KURT LOVED THOSE TEXTS AND BLAINE WAS CREEPED THE FUCK OUT. DO NOT TELL ME BLAINE ANDERSON FLIRTED WITH SEBASTIAN. HE NEVER DID AND HE NEVER WILL.
actually he kinda looks like he’s considering transferring back to his old school after he made a very poor decision and is battling with shame and self-hatred and as soon as he walks in he’s welcomed with open arms and even called “flawless” right after he’s made just about the biggest mistake in his life and he considers himself anything but “flawless” so that compliment causes him pain which sebastian does not know of course so it’s a little bit of irony there you see what they did ??
when blaine ISN’T struggling with extreme self-doubt and guilt, he looks like this when sebastian compliments him:
he sure is… creeped out… i guess…
