Boats a Rudd ticket to UNSC

Rudd’s dismantling of Nauru processing was part of his determined tilt at a seat on the UN Security Council.



SIZE MATTERS!

Not all of the super-trawler is a trawler, according to the Australian Fisheries Management Authority.


Trawler a pyrrhic victory

Emotive and visibly horrific, this giant trawler was to replace three other trawlers that were collectively confined to exactly the same quota of fish. Not one extra fish was to be caught. Funny thing is the Greens will get exactly what they didn’t want.


NO ADVANTAGE NONSENSE!

The ALP’s “no advantage” assurance for asylum seekers is about as empty an assurance as our “investment pipeline”.


UNIONS CALL FOR SURVEY ON RUDD

The rot has set in and the hounds are baying for blood as two prominent QLD unions call for tenders from polling companies to quantify Rudd’s appeal in marginal seats.



DAVID MARR A HIT IN GAY COMMUNITY ONLY

 

 

Gay News Network, which delights in pics of blokes snogging blokes, is wild with excitement that their gay darling, David Marr, is demonising Abbott. 


Howard agrees with govt on economy: Swan

Treasurer Wayne Swan has used comments by former prime minister John Horward to defend the economy's global standing.


GREEN NOW AN UNFASHIONABLE COLOUR

Greens and the ALP are in freefall, arguing over who gets the emergency parachute.


Twitter 'trolls' should be punished: Farah

NSW State of Origin hooker Robbie Farah says people who use social networking sites as a forum to launch abuse need to be held accountable for their actions.



There was movement at the station, for the word had passed around...

Rudd is once again making hardly-muffled noises. He believes he is close to having the numbers to topple Gillard. He hasn’t... not yet.



Condolences flow for Gillard family

Political leaders have sent their condolences to the family of Prime Minister Julia Gillard on the death of her father.


A TIME TO DOWN WEAPONS

We offer Ms Gillard our sincere condolences on the death of her father. It is an awful time for anyone when suffering the loss of a parent. Ours is not a contract of hate... it never has been. We want to debate political issues with which we disagree. This will be a very sad period for Julia and we feel for her and ask our followers to show respect in this period of mourning in the Gillard family as we have no ability to moderate all comments. 


PM exits APEC after 'inspiring' dad dies

Prime Minister Julia Gillard says her father was her inspiration and she will miss him for the rest of her life.


COME PLAY MY POKIES

Gillard’s deficient ethics are in play again. Her sympathy for families affected by gambling addiction is nothing but arrant crap. The “trial” is utterly pointless as everyone knows. It will not be the faintest indicator of addicts’ intentions or habits. But the $40million to be gifted to ACT Clubs for the privilege of conducting this “trial” will be well spent, just ask Gillard. You see, the ACT Clubs are the ALP’s biggest donors. Why would that be? Well, ACT Clubs are owned by the Labor Party and the powerful CFMEU. I guess the working man’s interests are still in good hands.
