Now I’ve heard everything! The AFL and every sports commentator in the country is admonishing the crowds for booing Adam Goodes. Well, now the crowds can add Lewis Jetta to their list of people worthy of booing because, although the AFL might be able to eject a 13-year-old girl from the MCG, it can’t eject 50,000 fans who paid to have their say.
So gay people want equality eh? Well I reckon it’s the poor straight bastards like me that cop the rough end of the pineapple. If ever equality gets dished out in equal portions, we should be first in line.
Do you want to know how utterly stupid Labor really is? Yeah - I know there are multiple answers to this rather open ended question but bear with me here. Let me tell you how categorically - how utterly - how emphatically - stupid the Labor Party is. Just in case you didn't already know.
I had visitors yesterday but still kept an eye on the ALP Conference and in particular Bill Shorten’s new “road to Damascus” boat policy... but there was something wrong! Something didn’t fit.
Organising a quorum from the Legislative Assembly will be the hardest part because at any one time most of them are off up the Cobourg Peninsula on corroboree, pissed as parrots and punching each other’s lights out arguing over who’s got the biggest rainbow serpent.
Many of us are struggling to complete our tax returns at this time of year. There is one insidious tax which we need to deal with however and this must be submitted by 31st of July. The cut off date for submissions to the Halal investigation is July 30th.
It’s a Whitlam style “crash-or-crash-through” gamble on a high risk boat policy in an attempt to succour the electorate’s middle ground. Shorten is attempting to out Abbott Abbott with a ridiculous 50% RET, much like his nonsense 5% company tax cut proposal that one-upped Abbott’s 1.5%. What a joke this bloke Shorten is!
Over many years I have listened with intense interest to Stephen Hawking’s string theorems and black hole time-travel fantasies, believing he must know more about the cosmos than anyone else. Now that he’s declared he is off with some rich Ruskie bloke to find intelligent life in galaxies and hitherto unknown solar systems, I’m convinced he’s been playing with his um, gums all along.
Why is it that polls curiously show a justifiable distrust of Bill Shorten yet show a constant affection for Labor? Well, the electorate has reached an entitlement tipping point where it simply cannot afford NOT to vote Labor.
The recent furore over the ABC’s inclusion of a convicted terrorist sympathiser on the guest list of Q&A is starting to die down. It has however raised an important but as yet unanswered question. Why do we need a public broadcaster at all?
Laurie Oakes is adamant that the Speaker will stay. “Tony Abbott is the love child of John Howard and Bronwyn Bishop”, he claims, and he could be right about that. But he is wrong about her staying on as Speaker of the House. In all probability Ms Bishop will need to fall on her own sword before Parliament returns for the Spring Session. This is not going away.
[The following is a report from pickeringpost.com 15 months ago.] An alarming report in the Mail On-line has accused Lord Justice George Fulford, (pictured) adviser to the Queen, of being a key backer of the outrageous “Paedophile Information Exchange” group known as PIE.
The man leading the push to kill Bronwyn Bishop, Manager of Opposition Business in the House, Tony Burke, is on a winner. Or so he believes. There are few excuses for Bishop’s lapse in common sense and unjustified feelings of entitlement as Speaker of the House, but Tony Burke’s position is no less odious because the vast majority of Australians see radical Islam as a threat... and Tony Burke can’t afford to.
Over five grand for a chopper from Melbourne to Geelong? Bloody hell! For a 15 minute leisurely flight up the M1? It seems the chopper hire company also needs to answer a few questions. That’s $21,000 an hour fly time, so what were the “extras”?
