Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

 “IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, KEEP YOUR TRAP SHUT!"

Security agencies and police forces still insist that we keep the Muslim hierarchy on-side so that they can dob in their “radicalised” kids who are showing signs of terrorist activities. Strange but it seems the families and mosques of these “radicalised” youths invariably insist on their innocence or they are actually involved in the same terrorist activity themselves.


NO ENCORE FOR OBAMA’S SWAN SONG

David Cameron has apparently decided the Left is the preferred place to be in future. Any British PM worth his salt would have punched Obama’s lights out for threatening Poms with “going to the end of the queue” if they did not vote to stay in the EU... Extraordinary!


THE WARMER WATERS OF THE RED SEA

...haven't harmed its coral

The Australian Government’s Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority’s web site claims if conditions (sea temperatures) don't improve within weeks, the corals will eventually starve and die. The website claims coral bleaching “is not always fatal”, but has been one of the main causes of coral death... blah blah etc.


THE “ASIC CAPABILITY REVIEW”

... and “capability” is exactly what ASIC is missing

Despite the scathing review, Greg Medcraft's term as ASIC Chairman was actually "extended" by Treasurer Scott Morrison in order for Medcraft to implement a $121 million recovery package Morrison convinced the Banks to pay for. Blimey, that’s like convincing a condemned man to help build the gallows.



RICHO MUST BE ASKING IS IT ALL WORTH IT

This would involve the removal of half of his bum and five otherwise healthy organs – “My bladder, bowel, prostate, colon and ­rectum-- and for the rest of my days I will have to carry both a colostomy bag and a bladder bag.” This was not a good read in The Australian while having my Weet Bix but Graham Richardson is determined to battle on in excruciating pain. Like me he probably has a young son in mind.


TRUMP THINKS IT’S RIGGED

... of course it is, just ask Bronwyn!

Most Americans and Australians believe the current US election is a Federal Presidential election. It’s not! All posters here know it’s a two Party struggle to find their best respective candidates and, despite the protests, any party can select whatever candidate it wants for an election to be held later this year. The GOP doesn’t want Donald and the Libs didn’t want Bronwyn. Poor Bronwyn.



TELL THE TRUTH BILL

... you couldn't give a stuff about safety

Bill Shorten thinks he can make truckies responsible and stop them taking drugs. Little does he realise that without speed pills there would be a semi trailer accident on every bend with dead people strewn everywhere. Private truck operators do it really tough and they don't need to be unionised by Shorten.


THE PROFESSOR PROFESSES SOME FROG SHIT

The Aboriginal Father Christmas addressed the Press Club today in a room of fawning Lefties and he wants greater representation in Parliament. Well, Aborigines have been over-represented over a long period thanks largely to Captains’ picks on parachutes into the Senate.


BANKS SET TRAPS FOR YOU AND THE GOVT

Six years of Rudd, Gillard, Rudd left Australia with its pants down around its knees, in deep debt, with a bare cupboard, China in decline and a sense of hopelessness. This coming budget will make no attempt to even begin to address this Labor induced disaster because an election will be held soon after and the Libs will refuse to give Shorten a dozen free kicks. This is a classic Turnbull stuff-up.

GOLD COAST MOSQUE CANNED

... but is it a pyrrhic victory?

Muslims will never give up their intention to build these ghastly monuments of noisy dominance over the landscape. That is what they are ordered to do and have the finance to do, the problem still exists, not for the Gold Coast, but for other people in other areas who will need to fight to prevent these un-Australian edifices that are central to terrorist activity.


SHORTEN’S DEFICIT SOLUTION UP IN SMOKE!

Most people, including Bill Shorten, will claim that smoking causes cancer and if we can stop people smoking the health bill will diminish and people will live longer. Um... if they live longer the health bill will increase! It’s the aged who are responsible for the health bill blowout, so why not save a fortune and allow them to die sooner?... Give the poor old buggers free tobacco!


JAMIE PICKERING SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER

The Gold Coast is awash with drugs and if you want the celebrity status of owning nightclubs then it’s best to know the law well. I won’t go near night clubs whether they are owned by family members or not, they are dangerous places where, like VLAD laws, mere association can be a crime and it’s impossible to know the ages of who you are speaking to.


IRAN REVERTS TO THE SIXTIES

... and it is claiming Iraq as part of the old Persian Empire

The US Administration has provided Iran with a pathway to nuclear weapons hoping that within ten years Iran’s population of 80 million, of which 70 per cent is currently under 35, will rebel against the religious old guard and create the "flower power" and "ban the bomb" era of the 60s in the West.


GILLARD’S LAND MINES NOW IN THE LAP OF THE PREMIERS

Julia Gillard cruelly gladdened the hearts of the disabled, but it’s Tony Abbott (and now Malcolm Turnbull) who had to wrestle with the reality. the-disabled-julia/1274


RIGHT MESSAGE, WRONG VENUE

Once a week we put three hours aside to enjoy a thoroughly Aussie competition devoid of socio-political slogans, but this time a year ago such a banner would have been torn down immediately. Today there is a heightened awareness of the dangers mosques pose across the globe.


I ALWAYS THOUGHT TURNBULL WAS A DICKHEAD

...and now I’m damned certain he is!

Everything Turnbull has done since the coup has been done in the pursuit of protecting his high poll figures. His latest thought bubble of allowing the States to collect income tax is not just ridiculous it is outrageous and brazenly designed to save spending his own political capital raising taxes prior to a DD election.
