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.
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.
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.
I feel a little bit sick this morning because I believe I have finally worked out what Gillard, Macklin and their rabid Left sisterhood were up to promoting late-term abortions. It was a major plank in the hideous policies of Gillard’s Socialist Forum. But why? Why wouldn't a woman opt for a six week abortion of an unwanted baby?
Dear Jimmy, Hi how are you? Er, you probably have never heard of me, but of course I’ve heard of you, rock legend and all that. We do have a few things in common mind you. We both came from the UK (other side of the border) and settled in this great country.
Dyson Heydon must stay and the Left still don’t understand why. They are high on fantasy and chanting “bias, bias, bias” in a circular trance with their hands on each other’s genitals in an overt display of reciprocal masturbation.
So he forgot to not do something he had no intention to do even if he had not forgotten to remember something he was not going to do anyway even if he had remembered to not forget he had already forgotten to remember... or in other words, “Bugger, I should have opened that attachment”.
The AWU’s hero, Bill Shorten, nervously peeks from behind the stand as his slobbering attack dog, Tony Burke, attempts stop a Royal Commission unearthing even more of Bill’s union corruption... but PM Abbott can hear bells ringing, he is close to unconscious, lost in vacuous half-measures and vapid inoffensiveness and the corner seems the safest place.
How do you compare golfing class acts like Jason Day and Adam Scott with tennis tossers like Nick Kyrgios and Bernard Tomic? All four represent Australia.
The answer is neither, unless you have just had a serious fight with your wallet. On the left is the Liberal Party’s bright spark, Gregory Burton, SC, earmarked for Bronwyn Bishop’s seat of Mackellar.
