The Real Reason Why Gillard’s A Spinster

Why is Julia Gillard really an unmarried, childless, career politician spinster?

The answer may surprise you.

Take a look at the following chart, showing Commonwealth Treasury Note auctions from March 2009 through this past Friday (click to enlarge):

Since Ms Gillard took over the nation’s top job, the size of weekly Treasury Note auctions has jumped dramatically. Under Gillard, the government has auctioned $46.7 billion worth of Treasury Notes in just 10 months. By contrast, the Fairy Ruddfather sprinkled $50.2 billion in the preceding 15 months, before Gillard banished him to the spare bedroom:

Now, it’s important to understand the special significance of Treasury Notes. According to the Australian Office of Financial Management (AOFM):

Treasury Notes are short-term debt securities used primarily to meet within-year funding flows. Issuance decisions are made weekly and depend on the Government’s projected daily cash position for the weeks ahead.

Then there’s this:

Treasury Notes are not expected to make a major contribution to overall funding for the 2010-11 financial year as a whole.

Right. With 2 months to go, she’s already auctioned $11.1 billion (31.5%) more in Treasury Notes than the Fairy Ruddfather did in the previous financial year.

Conclusion?

Clearly, a Gillard-led government is incapable of managing the weekly cashflow. The kitchen’s closed, the children are running amok, the House is a shambles, and the budget is out of control, ever since she took over the purse-strings.

Which explains once and for all, why she’s an unmarried, childless, career politician spinster.

P.S. I thought it apropos to reveal Gillard’s big secret today. A day so very close to Julia’s heart. International Worker’s Day. Labour Day. Otherwise known as May Day.

That’s also why I’ve changed this blog’s theme colour for today – in honour of the occasion. Though I’ll admit it was rather difficult to decide whether it was more apropos to go red or …
