BILL CAPITULATES TO CHRIST

… but he’s not the only one to have a ‘come to Jesus’ moment just before falling off the perch

Another banana bender, Russ Hinze, was a close friend of mine and one of the filthiest, most evil, most atheistic blokes on the planet. But I liked him, and in his later years I trained his string of racehorses for him. None of his horses could run out of sight on a dark night but I told him lying stories beside his bed in Alamanda Private Hospital of emerging Melbourne Cup winners, because I knew he was rapidly dying.


TEN-YEAR FORWARD ESTIMATES?

... there's a good reason for that

Ms Plibersek is furious that independent and Catholic schools are copping a fair deal now that the useless Simon Birmingham has been shown the door from education to one marked “Harmless Tourism” with accompanying lei. But education is education and God knows we are behind on all fronts with only Catholic and Independent schools, without gender studies, showing signs of progress.



DON’T BOTHER FINING BANKS AND UNIONS


THE START OF MUSLIM FOOD TERRORISM?

... only this time it's not halal

My pancake strawberries at $2 a punnet were a financial attraction, but now needles have spread to apples and bananas the attraction is waning fast as it becomes clear that this is no longer just a stupid prank. It is a well-organised system intended to destroy an economy.



NATIONAL SECURITY RISK, MY ARSE!

ScoMo is a little smarter than the average bear when he suggests, as has been suggested here many times, that there is no need to cancel the Paris Accord that Turnbull and the Stick Insect so feverishly signed immediately after knifing Abbott. No… the Paris Accord needs to be ignored, walked away from, as so many other nations are doing, including our allies.


Australia Fair?

I was wondering whether I should wade into this interesting issue and put my tuppence worth in. Then, quite unexpectedly, I found myself in a very interesting situation, where I was actually asked for my opinion, by a group of Aboriginal people I have known for a while, and with whom I was having a meeting about domestic violence.



Politicians again show “Real Genius”

Back in the chaotic dying days of the Whitlam-Cairns-Connor government, Canberra was buzzing with Rex Connor’s grand plans for a national energy grid and gas pipelines linking the NW Shelf to the capital cities, all to be funded by massive foreign loans arranged by a mysterious Pakistani named Khemlani. Malcolm Fraser staged a parliamentary revolt. The economy slumped.


TIME FOR TURNBULL TO INFILTRATE THE LNP FROM WITHOUT

Any doubt as to why Malcolm Turnbull joined the Libs is now dispelled. The politician expressing the most remorse at his loss is Bill Shorten and he is demanding to know why he was so mercilessly sacked. But Bill, who mercilessly sacked both Rudd and Gillard, already knows why.


Congratulations Scotty...

Great work, terrible timing. It must feel a bit like being promoted to Captain of the Titanic half way through her maiden voyage. As a former treasurer, you knew that the gigantic debt iceberg was out there in the fog somewhere.


CO2, OXYGEN, AND THE WORLD'S "POLLUTED" CITIES ARE DOING FINE THANKYOU

...only Al Gore's bank account is suffering

New York city surrounds its historic four kilometer long Central Park that has thrived for 160 years on CO2 and methane. Yet it is falsely cited as one of the world's most "polluted" cities.


KYRGIOS ON OVARIES

… another black day for tennis

Don’t know about you but ever since Serena Williams had her real character on display when she publicly excoriated that poor little defenceless Asian lines lady a few years ago, I cannot stand the sight of this bad example of female sportswomanship.


DON'T CANCEL PARIS... just let the red windmill keep turning


PACIFIC FORUM FARCE

If Australia thinks it can outspend China in the South Pacific now that the obese Island Jifs (chiefs) have discovered the rising sea-level ruse, then it’s kidding itself. But the three la femme musketeers of Gillard, Bishop and now Payne have given it their best shot. With stolen funds of course… stolen from our future generation.


ABORIGINES AND MUSLIMS DOING WHAT COMES NATURALLY?

When aboriginal children were being abused in the 1950s and 60s, white families stepped in and saved them from the horrors of atavistic tribal customs. Sixty years later those same fortunate children had grown to be well-educated, respected and habituated members of society.


WHO COULD THE LEAKER BE?


PAULINE’S PROBLEM WITH SEX

…the opposite sex

Why does she trust men who do her harm? Men who actually set out to do her harm, and she never sees them coming until it’s too late. And she is about to be further molested by a bloke called Mark Latham.
