SEPARATION OF POWERS?

Justice Rares, in his latest judgment, decided to remove his shoes and socks and wade into the putrid pool of politics.



SLIPPERY DOES IT AGAIN!

In ruling the Slipper case not go to trial, Justice Rares, said the reason was because it was "politically motivated". Mmmm, really?



PRANK GONE WRONG... but there is more to it

What seemed like a harmless prank has gone terribly wrong and resulted in the death of a nurse, Jacintha Saldanha. Two creative kids will now be scarred for life and two others are now without a mother. So why must there be more to this?


DEAR MS GILLARD,

Let me explain something to you, and I know you will read this: 



GILLARD'S POOR JUDGMENT WAS ALWAYS HER ACHILLES HEEL

Ms Gillard, have you, or your Office, been in contact with Bruce Wilson?”

“Not that I’m aware of”, was Gillard’s reply.

Interpreted from polispeak to an honest answer, her reply was, “Yes, I texted Bruce to see if our deal still held good, but not from my own phone.”


GILLARD'S DREAMS WILL BECOME THE NIGHTMARES OF OTHERS

The world we would all like is sometimes unachievable and it takes maturity to accept that.


AIN'T NOTHING LIKE THIS DAME

Elisabeth Murdoch, a rare monument to true womanhood.

A stencil of selfless achievement others can’t even aspire to.

A rare blend of kindness, intelligence and altruism that will live way longer than she has and thoughts go to all her proud family.

Like her roses, she too will live on.



DEFICIT SPENDING BY A FISCAL FOOL

I apologise for this article but I have to get it off my chest. 

Idealogues and unlimited funds are a dangerous mix. Particularly when a simple Party-line vote apportions borrowings up to $300 billion to an intellectual and economic dunce. 

“I have steered this nation through a GFC”, said Wayne Swan.

What a load of frog droppings!



SUNDAY AT THE LODGE

It was a sunny Sunday morning in Canberra and the first day of summer. Julia’s hired hand had just finished mowing her nature strip. “How many times have I told you to use the catcher Tim, bloody hell you’ve got clippings everywhere!” “Never mind Petal, settle down, I’ll run you a bath”, said Tim.


BEHIND THE TAXLESS TAX

The MRRT (mining tax) that Gillard and Swan so deftly negotiated with major miners raised no tax in its first quarter and will raise very little, if anything, in ensuing quarters.

The reason? Non Royal Minerals are being stockpiled or left in the ground. Waiting for prices to recover or Abbott to gain office in under a year. He will then fulfil his promise to abandon the tax.


A JUDICIAL INQUIRY... why not Ms Gillard?

It would answer public disquiet over the massive fraud that you were responsible for. Latest polls suggest the majority of Aussies believe you are either hiding something or lying. So why not?


SLATER & GORDON... an insight into mob lawyer mentality

When Peter Gordon dragged Gillard in to explain the fraud it quickly became clear that she was not only complicit, she was a beneficiary. S&G were now terribly exposed.


WE HAVE A CRIMINAL AS PRIME MINISTER... and the Press gallery is quite comfortable with that

The Press gallery in my time was a reputable one. In those days, if two journalists had been sacked on a Prime Minister’s insistence because they were getting too close to the truth, all hell would have broken loose.
