SEX, LIES AND VIDEOTAPE

Morphing what most voters know to be a repulsive person into an electorally acceptable one is a task too far even for Bruce Hawker... the alley cat’s spots are indelible.

THAT'S NOT CRICKET!

Watching test cricket is like watching concrete set at the best of times and okay, okay, the Aussies weren’t competitive but it’s no wonder a devotee called Kerry Packer found it necessary to invent an entertaining form of the game.


ABBOTT'S PPL SHOULD GO

... at least for now

Company tax reduction from 30% to 28.5% does not represent a 1.5% saving, particularly for multi-nationals, simply because companies have never paid 30%.

Julia Gillard said in her parting Press conference that she had paved the way for another future female Prime Minister. Maybe she was referring to Uncle Kev because he is as close to a woman as one can get without a trans gender operation.


NO RE-ELECTION FOR UNCLE KEV... he doesn't pass the sniff test
