Dear Ms Bishop (the one who has foreign affairs, not the helicopter one)

Can you please help me cos my Mum went next door to borrow a cup of sugar from the Farkhaeds and she hasn’t come back. And now Mr Farkhaed seems to have an extra wife... we definitely counted five yesterday.


BUFFOONS, BORDERS AND A LITTLE BOY

This little boy’s mother and his older brother who also drowned were genuine refugees and they were just three of a 500,000 humanitarian tragedy in northern Syria where ISIS is on one side and Assad the other... does Obama still sleep well? You bet he does. Yet it was he who encouraged the Arab Spring uprisings and then walked away with no thought for the consequences.


ABBOTT FINALLY GETS A WOODY OVER A GST INCREASE

... but this “all States must agree” stuff is nonsense

I wrote about this a year ago, when I thought, “That sounds a bit funny, what does he mean by, ‘all States must agree?’”, so I went and looked up the GST Act of 1999. Well, it’s there all right! Sort of.


SHORTEN'S PLAN TO HIJACK THE LODGE

The ABC and Fairfax, in a relentless barrage of misinformation, outright lies and an incandescent hatred of Tony Abbott, are throwing everything bar the kitchen sink at wresting the pivotal seat of Canning from the Coalition. They believe if Canning goes, so too does Abbott, but does Shorten really want him gone as much as media’s Left does?



NO-ONE GETS THINGS WRONG LIKE RICHO



PAYING THE PIPER

... how the Greens are corrupted by corrupt unions

Dyson Heydon’s refusal to be bullied or intimidated by union thugs and his intention to stick with the Royal Commission gig triggered the usual twitter finger-wagging from the extreme Greens.


DYSON HEYDON’S TORTUOUS DECISION

... and the honest unionists he needs to protect

If Dyson Heydon stands down he will have given credence and legitimacy to the worst Labor and its moribund unions can offer and he will have tainted his own reports... he will have agreed that there was a perception that he was biased. But whose perception was that?


THE CLAYTONS REPUBLIC

The Australian Republican Movement chairman Peter ‘Fitzy’ FitzSimons assures us that his preferred model for a republic means "nothing will change". That raises the obvious question, “If nothing will change, then why change?”


70,000 VISA OVERSTAYS CLAIM RACISM

... but SH-Y says we shouldn’t ruin their holiday

An estimated 70,000 people who have overstayed their visas are virtually impossible to locate because of stretched resources according to the AFP. The number has dramatically increased from a reported 62,000 five years ago.


SLATER & GORDON TO THE RESCUE!

... crooks need the best crooked lawyers

Labor and corrupt unions’ favourite corrupt law firm, Slater & Gordon, is under an ongoing ASIC investigation concerning a, a’hem, “book-keeping error” totalling $90 million.



WHY THE COMMISH WILL STAY PUT

Commissioner Heydon would not have spent more than a week preparing legal argument if he intended standing down. No, if he intended to depart there would be no legal argument required, he would just shoot through to a well-earned break in autumnal Tuscany or maybe Province.


NOT THE RIGHT FITZ

Some issues shouldn’t be classified as Left or Right – they should be bipartisan. Or just ‘right’, as in ‘correct’. One of those issues is the move for an Australian republic, which is on the boil again.


WHY 4CORNERS WENT HARD ON SHORTEN


COULD TONY GET OFF WITH JACQUI?

...yes, but only in the right circumstances

Most people (except those at the ABC and Fairfax of course) are slapping their foreheads in disbelief at how Shorten can possibly outpoll Abbott. Shorten as PM is the stuff of nightmares and horror movies and if it ever happened I’m out of here and off to New Zealand. Hang on, hang on, I take that back... better make that Afghanistan.


SORRY ABOUT THE ADS


ANOTHER GFC, ONLY THIS TIME WITHOUT A COSTELLO SURPLUS?

... you’re kidding aren’t you!

Watching the Dow in a one thousand-point freefall last night was more an indication of why China’s confused mix of Communism and Capitalism must eventually fail.
