IDEOLOGICALLY MALLEABLE, MAYBE

… in ScoMo we must trust

The elevation of Scott Morrison will not please all Conservatives. But it’s the best that can be expected considering that Turnbull’s disregard for convention gave the Dutton haters time to garner votes in the second rundown ballot after the hapless Stick Insect ran as a pacer.


TODAY’S CANBERRA CUP FORM

Canberra Cup today starting at 12 noon. A disappointing field of four will present punters with a real headache. There could be one scratching in Turnbull. He is expected to refuse to go into the barriers as he has been poorly broken in. One mare with a light weight could surprise, but the favourite looks a good bet.


MAL WANTED AND EXPECTED BILL TO WIN

…it was all about his Republic

Alas, Peter is a bit new to this game and should not have passed around a petition for his supporters to sign. Fortunately only a few were silly enough to sign it. Silly because it gives other Turnbull opponents the names of Libs who want him gone in a secret ballot. Turnbull could then deny a Party meeting, which he has, and use that list to spend the next non-sitting weeks cajoling, rewarding, or threatening those who have lost faith in him.


TURN TURNBULL’S BONKING BAN BACK ON THE BASTARD


THE CASE FOR ASSISTED DYING

“Postponing Paris” is not good enough and the true Libs must not accept it as a commitment. Despite the rest of the world walking away from Paris, Turnbull will never accept that it is a UN/IPCC hoax.


LODGE DINNER MAL’S LAST SUPPER

On Mal’s reckoning he has already returned once, but there is no theological evidence that sumbugger can return twice, let alone thrice. Pontius Pilate Pyne had washed his hands of the mess and Abbott had Peter in a corner explaining that before the cock crows he will have denied Mal thrice.


THE CHANCE OF A NEGOTIATED NEG IS NEGLIGIBLE

“Genuine Liberals have just about had enough of Malcolm Turnbull!” No shit, Sherlock! They have finally figured out exactly what he is up to, and it’s not about lowering energy prices.


HOW FAR RIGHT IS FRASER ANNING?

…well he’s certainly not far wrong!

I listened to his maiden speech and thought in no way was he alluding to, or referencing, Adolf Hitler’s determination to rid the Earth of Jews. His “final solution” comment was describing a possible plebiscite for Australians to have their say on immigration. But the media saw a vacancy on the moral high-ground and went apeshit.



REOPEN THE ROCK FOR THE RESIDUE


TIME’S RUNNING OUT FOR TURBINES AND TURNBULL

The Liberal Party stands firm: “Renewables will drive down energy prices”, but any reasonable person knows that must be a lie because subsidies on renewables are designed to send energy bills through the roof and make energy companies embrace everything that isn’t coal.


IT'S RAINING DICKHEADS, HALLELUJAH


IT WILL ONLY BE A LITTLE BABY CARBON TAX

... trust me

The Labor States are baulking at Friedanegg’s NEG (National Energy Guarantee), but for the wrong reason, Labor States are only trying to keep a lid on the gangrenous Green box. Josh’s EIS (Emissions Intensity Scheme) has fallen at the last hurdle and now he and Turnbull have decided it’s best to flat out lie to Aussies instead.



ASIC A CORPORATE WATCHDOG?

... more like a pathetic poodle

They sit sleepy-eyed in their shiny leather chairs, looking up unnecessarily big words in order to sound intellectual, but they don’t… they are just part of the landfill of Public Service wastage.


CRACKS APPEAR IN SKY’s “IMPARTIALITY”

If you wish to know where a TV network’s ideology is embedded, simply note their preference for overseas political news feeds. SKY doesn’t use its sister network FOX, it uses the icon of all fake news and Trump hysteria, CNN.



BUT DOES DUTTON HAVE THE BALLS?

actually he has no choice

When voters discovered that the objectionable little boy, Roy (who previously flummed the seat of Longman) had assisted Turnbull and the Stick Insect to knife Tony Abbott, they threw him out. They are not stupid. Therefore, what should the message be for other suicidal Turnbull supporters?


BIG RED… RED HOT OR RED HERRING?

A gangrenous Green would not been seen dead voting for Pauline Hanson, neither would a loony Left Labor voter, yet curiously Pauline is assisting Labor to government, and in doing so she is assisting Labor’s horrible Green appendix.
