MID-EAST AFLAME WHILE WEST FIDDLES

A Turkish people smuggler has claimed thousands of ISIS operatives have posed as refugees and entered Europe to commit acts of terror or simply “lie in wait” prior to receiving orders from al-Raqqa in Syria. His claims were confirmed by a spokesperson for the Islamic State. “Just wait” he said, “we have gone like asylum seekers.”



Shocking Halal slaughter methods uncovered

...this time in the UK

Horrific footage has emerged of "vicious attacks" at a halal slaughterhouse where animals had their throats hacked at with saws. Other footage shows sheep being kicked in the face by staff and a worker standing on the neck of a conscious animal.


A BRIDGE TOO FAR

... and it's over troubled waters

Tony Abbott should call for a vote of confidence in his leadership at the Party meeting next week. It’s a perilous gamble he may not be prepared to take because he no longer has the numbers but it’s a gamble he must take or his Party will slowly implode.


TONY COPS A JULIE DEATH STARE

...and now, the end is near

And so he faces the final curtain, maybe not today or tomorrow, but he is a dead man walking and he is the only member of the Coalition who hasn’t yet realised it. How it got to this should be no surprise, after all his colleagues told him ten years ago they did not consider him foreman material... “We don’t see you in that way, Tony”, they said. Only Tony saw himself in that way


“THE PRIME MINISTER HAS MY SUPPORT”

... Cabinet members claim

Or in other words, “It’s very important that Bill Shorten not be gifted the next election”. If an unknown Leftie who can’t tell you what the GST rate is can be voted into Office by Queenslanders then anything is possible. And if you’re batting badly and you hear a death rattle like, “The Prime Minister has my support”, then you may as well begin walking, because you’re about to be given out.


The Peter principle



WOW! WHO WOULDA THUNK THAT!

As Clive Palmer slipped quietly out the back door, the political pundits were saying, “We are in a new era of electoral volatility”. Bullshit! The Libs were suggesting, “Our message needs to be sold better”. Bullshit! Just stop lying to us and everything will go back to normal.


VOTING IS A HEALTH HAZARD

... so don’t do it, it only encourages them

I have never voted, ever, not even for myself because the thought of living in a black hole as a backbencher in Canberra was too distressing. I just wanted to make a stand against Whitlam, that’s all. The reason for compulsory voting is that, given a choice, you wouldn’t vote for any of the bastards, so we need to be dragged kicking and screaming, under the threat of a fine, to our respective polling stations and told to choose between a Tweedle dum and a Tweedle dee.


THE INVISIBLE KILLER

As reported here after Malaysian Airline flight MH370 disappeared, the wreckage will never be found. The almost $100 million set aside by Australia to continue the search is an attempt to find closure for bereaved families and not a fair dinkum attempt to find the aircraft.



HAS TONY ABBOTT LEARNT A LESSON?


APPEASEMENT DOESN’T WORK

... well, not for me it doesn't

I went to school at Lloyd Street State School in East Malvern, two minutes’ bike ride from home. I kept to myself and had no friends. I longed to kick a footy but the kids only kicked it to each other.


THERE’S A TIME BOMB GATHERING DUST ON OBAMA’S DESK

It would be a mistake to underestimate just how important the Bergdahl story is to the remaining tenure of Barack Obama. The media here didn’t touch the story but early last year I gave it a run suggesting it could in future break Obama in what could fairly be deemed a matter of treason. The time has now come.

Another Alarmist Temperature Lie


THE CLASH OF THE CODES

In a surprise move Collingwood has begun beheading those who follow other codes. They showed no mercy when storming St George’s Leagues Club waving black and white flags and spraying poker machine players with AK47 rounds while screaming “Collingwood is great”, “death to non-believers” and “behead all those who insult Eddie McGuire”.



DON’T THROW ANOTHER PRAWN ON THE BARBY FOR SIR PETER

...anyway, where the bloody hell are ya Peter?

There will be an empty space on our barbeque grills today and an empty space in our stomachs, because our most Aussie GG ever, and Australian of the year, Peter Cosgrove will not be raising the flag or sharing a beer and a snag with us.
