I didn’t have high expectations when I tuned in to the ABC’s 7.30 Report the other night. Lucky really because I don’t deal well with disappointment.
In the late 90s Gillard passed Bill Shorten the baton and he simply carried on with the AWU corruption that had been running rampant for 20 years that we know of. Media’s failure to address Julia Gillard and her boyfriend’s AWU fraud led Shorten to believe he would also be safe from investigation.
"I'll be characterised as that scumbag, crook, fraudster, and at the very best, somebody who's been bewitched by an evil harridan, namely Kathy ... that I'm cunt-struck and that I have been utterly taken in by somebody who's a serious crook," Michael Lawler (pictured) told the ABC who, for the first time, did not bleep the “C” bomb.
A rich bloke should never be envied. The happiest times are had when you’re broke, only then are you completely free to embark on whatever venture you want without the restrictive ever-present managers, lawyers and hangers-on that limit imagination, growth and time with the family.
BILL Shorten's decision to play the class envy card last week magnified the hollowness of the opposition leader. Shorten doesn’t have class envy but that doesn’t mean he won’t have a go at playing the dud cards of jealousy, resentment and covetousness for all they're worth. Or not worth.
Only last year Syria’s President Bashar Assad was democratically elected to office. He stood against two other credible candidates and gained a clear majority.
Greg Norman once said, “If I park my new Ferrari anywhere in LA, I get kids asking if they can wash it for me. When I park it in Melbourne I get kids who want to run coins down the side of it.” And there my friends, is the politics of jealousy. And there too rests the small minds of Labor luminaries.
A 15-year-old! How could that happen? We must quickly lower the age a child can be detained to 14. Oh bugger! Did you say there’s a 12-year-old now? Better make that 11, maybe 10. We are watching media, a Government and its security agencies in total disarray and they are lying to us in an attempt to, of all things, placate and render comfort to the guilty.
Watching the Royal Commission into Unions over the last few days and watching Bill Shorten’s obvious discomfiture when attempting to respond to the damning evidence, evokes flashbacks to Gillard and Wilson. The scam was exactly the same. The only difference was that Gillard arranged for the defrauded funds to be laundered through property renovations.
Don’t you care about Muslims? Your new policy focus promises to be more accommodating to Islam. No doubt, this will mean more public money to Islamic organisations. Suppression of free speech will continue or be intensified where Islam is concerned.
You can understand Greens and doctors wanting to kidnap kids from hospitals, they’ve lived their lives in universities and Labor law firms, but not nurses. A little bit of forethought wouldn’t go astray here and Greens and doctors have never been very good at that, so let’s get one thing straight:
If you could take the Islam out of the Muslim you’d probably have a nice bloke, but what chance is there of that? Once a Muslim toddler is taught that non-Muslims must perish at the hands of righteous jihadists, then you will never change him.
Who is Islam’s official arbiter, curator and promoter of the horrific Shariah law? Why it’s none other than Mr Turnbull’s new best friend, his eminence the non-English speaking grand mufti of Australia Dr (everyone’s a doctor or a sheik) Ibrahim Abu Mohamed.
