BADGERYS IS AN ABBOTT NBN MOMENT

There is good reason a second airport for Sydney has remained on ice for over 40 years... it’s a hot potato not even Neville Wran or Bob Hawke wanted on their headstones. Now it will be engraved on Tony Abbott’s and his wish to be known as an “infrastructure Prime Minister” will be complete. But he will be sitting in his wheel chair in an aged home wishing he had never thought of it


AN EASTER TALE

Pictured is a stone altar within the Vatican walls, the room is called a “meditation area”, but you have to wonder what tales that ancient block of stone could tell. [CORRECTION: The altar shown is in the UN where the Vatican holds permanent observer status.]


DOES OSCAR HAVE A LEG TO STAND ON?

There is no doubt Oscar Pistorius will be found guilty. Guilty of what, is the only matter yet to be resolved.


BARRY HAD NO CHOICE

The ICAC is a creation of the conservatives intended to rein in NSW Labor’s corruption and, although a bottle of Grange hardly seems a reason for resignation, the corrupt Labor Opposition would have ensured yet-to-come ICAC and RC findings were diluted and defrayed from the main game.


AND NOW FOR SOME AUSSIE CULTURE

Hey Malcolm, want a nurse of George?... Malcolm? Where the bloody hell are you, Malcolm?


DON'T SHOOT JOE HOCKEY

The poor bastard has inherited a mess of unprecedented proportions that is going to take a long Liberal tenure to sort out and return to some normality - if at all.


WHEN IT'S OK TO RAPE A 13yo GIRL


BOOTCAMP FOR THE BROTHERHOOD

I’m exhausted! Six weeks of bonding with the Islamic Brotherhood Bootcamp was bloody brilliant. I’ve been completely cleansed of all my dastardly infidel thoughts and since I’ve replaced “Faaaark” on the golf course with “Allahu Akbar” the birdies have been coming thick and fast.


ABBOTT ALL AT SEA WITH A PINGER

It’s grand that the PM can announce to the world, and China in particular, that we are “virtually” certain we have located the black box from flight MH370. It would be even grander if it was remotely correct.


DON’T THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER

We’re about to cop a dose of monarchy here and the ooohs and aaahs over baby George will add a little more contact adhesive to mother England, much to the republicans’ chagrin.


THE BLOKE WITH A HEAD YOU'D NEVER GET TIRED OF KICKIN'

And supercilious snobbery that puts Whitlam’s egomania to shame. Are any of his vainglorious snippets tongue-in-cheek? Hardly. Condescending contemptuousness for peers has always been Bob Carr’s calling card.


DID ISLAMIC YOUTHS RAPE ANOTHER YOUNG MOTHER?

...you can Bendigo Bank on it!

Bendigo is a beautiful Victorian town steeped in Aussie gold-rush history and treasured as an inland jewel by its inhabitants, well by most of them.


MAYBE I'M JUST A DINOSAUR

I am now certain I must at least be some sort of phobe because I found the Kiwi kindergarten get together for baby George a bit unsettling.


TIME TO SHUT SHARIA DOWN

The Pickering Post reported last week: “Sharia Banking is also booming with the assistance of the NAB.... allowing the Islamist to give the finger to the infidel next door.” So today’s announcement that the NAB is pouring a further $15 million into its Sharia banking arm led me to search for more information.

Poll

Surprisingly, only 28% believe in the “resurrection”. Do you believe in a God or any other omnipotent, ethereal power?

Oz Trivia

Christ’s robe was red, or so they say. What colour did John and Mark say it was?

Word of the day

The name of that yummy Jewish woman who became queen of Persia?
