70,000 VISA OVERSTAYS CLAIM RACISM

... but SH-Y says we shouldn’t ruin their holiday

An estimated 70,000 people who have overstayed their visas are virtually impossible to locate because of stretched resources according to the AFP. The number has dramatically increased from a reported 62,000 five years ago.


SLATER & GORDON TO THE RESCUE!

... crooks need the best crooked lawyers

Labor and corrupt unions’ favourite corrupt law firm, Slater & Gordon, is under an ongoing ASIC investigation concerning a, a’hem, “book-keeping error” totalling $90 million.



WHY THE COMMISH WILL STAY PUT

Commissioner Heydon would not have spent more than a week preparing legal argument if he intended standing down. No, if he intended to depart there would be no legal argument required, he would just shoot through to a well-earned break in autumnal Tuscany or maybe Province.


WHY 4CORNERS WENT HARD ON SHORTEN


COULD TONY GET OFF WITH JACQUI?

...yes, but only in the right circumstances

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.


SORRY ABOUT THE ADS


ANOTHER GFC, ONLY THIS TIME WITHOUT A COSTELLO SURPLUS?

... you’re kidding aren’t you!

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.



HIDDEN CAMERA ON SELLER OF BABY PARTS

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?


IF THE COMMISH STANDS DOWN PREPARE FOR ANARCHY

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.



ALP DUPLICITY


ONLY ONE OF TWO BAD CHOICES FOR DYSON

... and he will doubtless choose the right one

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”.


HAS TONY HAD ENOUGH?

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.


GO FIND SOME OTHER COUNTRY TO REPRESENT, KYRGIOS

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.


TWO BARRISTERS

... but who to engage for your outstanding parking ticket?

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.



The ROYAL COMMISSIONS ACT of 1902 - SECT 6O
