Gina Rinehart Reassures Joe Hockey: “I Inherited A $47 Billion Hole Too, And Everything Turned Out Ok”

Gina rinehart satireMining magnate Gina Rinehart has offered Federal Treasurer Joe Hockey her support after the Coalition today announced it had inherited a multi-billion dollar budget black hole from the previous Labor Government.

“I know what it’s like to be left with an enormous hole filled with vast amounts of money,” Ms Rinehart said. “You look into the hole and you think ‘How do I sort out this mess? Who’s going to pick up the pieces?’

“But through hard work, cheap imported labour and some well-funded advertising campaigns I managed to keep my head above water. It needn’t be a cause for concern”.

    Black holes prevent anything escaping it’s gravity. The gravity of this situation is that Joe looks into the hole and thinks; “I can’t seem to escape the mess that I’m in. I might as well make it a lot worse for us all.”

    Joe could shove a suppository of wisdom in it.

      People I speak to who I know voted for Liberal bring out the “Labour had to go and there were no other alternatives” excuse.
      I blame Labour for making it easy for a coalition win.
      Those morons gave it away and we take the consequences.

    I don’t think it’s fair – the Abbot government is making Shovel’s job too easy! They mine up new sources of satire each day and use the reductio ad absurdum strategy to make every part of their government a joke,

    Or is it more sinister – are they trying to eliminate all satarists by making satire look too sensible? Can The Shovel survive?

      Not only satarists but satirists also.

    Gina has offered one of her defunct iron ore holes to Tony Boloni so that he can fill it with broken promises,but it might not be deep enough.
    Fortunately there is no truth in the rumour that Ms Ironheart is to become the next Governor General.

    When one gets it so right it is no longer funny. A buffoon who inherited what she has and seemingly has a grudge against everyone is what she is, and this reflects it oh too well.

    Please don’t mock dear Gina she’s my favourite Sociopath.
    Apparently the rumour that Gina will pay off the budget deficit if she is allowed to buy Western Australia are true.

    Thought I was reading about Gina the pole dancer not Gina the poll dancer.
