AN ABBOTT LEGACY ARGUABLY THE GREATEST

... and all in two short years

There is only one Australian Prime Minister who has no blood on his hands, who has knifed no-one and leaked on no-one. From Gorton and Billy McMahon to Malcolm Turnbull, including all Labor leaders in between, a torrent of blood has flowed from the slippery corridors of power. It is as if no-one has the right to be an Australian Prime Minister without having first conducted a bloody coup.


WE DISCOVERED ONE FOOL

... now who were the others?

The Lindt Cafe siege inquest report has done little more than dictate that Special Weapons and Tactics teams are needed for lunatic Muslims set free by lunatic magistrates. There was a lot of shaking of heads when the live telecast of the Lindt Cafe siege showed the dangerous ineptitude of the police.


SHE'S A BLOODY BLOKE

...but shhhh, we aren't allowed to say so

I have lit a fire with two pieces of wood, so I can claim to be an Aborigine, right? Yep, but I needn’t have bothered with the two pieces of wood. Australia’s definition of an Aborigine is whether you decide to ethnically identify yourself as an Aborigine... and it’s racially unlawful for anyone to question your decision.



UNIONS MIGHT LOOK WELL FED BUT THEY ARE SLOWLY DYING

The Liberal Party believes it has, for the moment, cleansed itself of its Right, but the Labor Party can never hope to cleanse itself of its Left. It is financially dependent on a corrupt union base for survival.


THE X FACTOR MILKS IT AGAIN

If you’re one of the many who were forced to drink rancid third pints of milk at school then you, like me, have probably been turned off cow juice for life... and that’s not exactly what the dairy industry wants. But apparently it’s what Mr Xenophon wants.


SOME PEOPLE THINK I'M CRAZY

...can you believe that?

The similarities between Julia Gillard and Hillary Clinton are somewhat spooky with sexual diversions and slush funds arranged for their own personal enrichment and a judicial system that refuses to act, along with a biased media intent on electing and preserving them both.



WELCOME TO COUNTRY

... our bloody country

Us group of elders are mobilising up here and demanding recognition. Taxpayers won’t cop their $squillions a year goin’ to Aboriginal jokers who weren’t here first! We were here before all these footy players and we want recognition at every game of Aussie Rules, and that other game they play somewhere near Robina where they shove their hands up each other’s shorts.



HOW WILL THE KIWIS EVER LIVE THIS DOWN

... beaten at rugby by a bunch of Aussie girls?

Well, you’ll never convince me that rugby is a girls’ game but any game that we can beat the Kiwis at must be okay. And that Charlotte Unfortunatesecondname sheila was brilliant! Now I can always say with conviction that I saw the Kiwis get beaten at rugby by a bunch of girls. No wonder the poor little Kiwiettes were crying... I’d be buying a length of rope and a three legged chair!


FANCY BRAZIL LECTURING US ON CONSERVATION

... how's the Amazon clear felling going boys?

Ban Ki-moon, with a grin from ear to ear, sat in a seat for the privileged while watching a politicised opening ceremony in Rio that presented a case for global warming with a litany of repeated Al Gore lies.


PC IS KILLING OUR CULTURE

... along with our cartoonists

Australia’s unique cartoon reputation is dying along with a dying Press that once proudly displayed them. Only The Australian’s Bill Leak is prepared to take on the PC police in maintaining the Aussie cartoonists' obligation to “stick it up ‘em” and God do they need it stuck up ‘em right now.



THE ZIKA KID IS PLAYING OBAMA OFF A BREAK

Either Obama is a fool (which he is not) or he is deliberately facilitating North Korea’s nuclear capability as a stepping stone to America for Iran’s bomb. Both rogue nations are in lockstep and screeching, “death to America”. Iran is desperate for the bomb before the lunatic Shia Administration is voted out of Office and the Zika Kid is doing Iran’s bidding.


LITTLE INTEREST IN LITTLE INTEREST CUT

Has anyone noticed that banks have lately been ignoring whatever the RBA sets as an interest rate? The cash rate makes no difference when it’s this low anyway. And whatever Morrison suggests is the reason, it can be safely ignored.


EIGHT BILLION TO ASSIST THE TERRORISTS?

...only from Obama's White House

According to Egypt’s TV14 network, Obama had secretly transferred eight billion dollars to the Muslim Brotherhood, not the Egyptian Government, as payment to guarantee that a large portion of the Sinai Peninsula would be turned over to the terrorist organisation Hamas, an enemy of both the United States and Israel.


THE FIRST SIGNS OF A FAIR DINKUM LIB SHIT FIGHT

It’s easy to dismiss the Rudd/Turnbull altercation over an endorsement for a UN Secretary General post as just another intra party squabble but it is prescient of a forthcoming internal move to cleanse the Party of Turnbullites. And even the stick insect is now having doubts about having knifed Abbott.


BETTER TELL YOUR KIDS ABOUT THIS ONE

... but what the hell do you tell them?

While authorities grapple with the new ice epidemic, another far more insidious drug is about to swamp it... and this one makes ice look like aspirin.


WHY A ROYAL COMMISSION WHEN WE ALREADY KNOW THE ANSWER?

...and the answer is there is no answer!

Before PM Turnbull crawled into bed on Monday night he had already decided on another Royal Commission. He and many Australians had just witnessed on Four Corners the hideous way in which Aboriginal youths are treated in NT detention centres.
