DON'T YOU TALK TO ME ABOUT EXPENSES TONY!

Over five grand for a chopper from Melbourne to Geelong? Bloody hell! For a 15 minute leisurely flight up the M1? It seems the chopper hire company also needs to answer a few questions. That’s $21,000 an hour fly time, so what were the “extras”?


SHOULD BARNABY BUTTON UP?



SEEMS AT LEAST WE GOT A STAY OF EXECUTION

Indonesia does not discriminate... Labor or the Coalition are still hated as Australian rats who should show respect, or at least a tolerance, for Joko Widodo’s corrupt Administration and its slaughterers’ right to kill cattle according to the cruel practice of halal.


THE LOONY LEFT STILL LINGERS

The canny political Left uses focus group sanctioned, friendly phrases like this: “The most vulnerable people ...”, which appeals to everyone’s ‘Good Samaritan’ side. “Climate change is ...”, now who could possibly argue with the climate changing? And of course, “Making little heart signs with fairy fingers while pleading for marriage equality” is designed to appeal to everyone’s sense of justice.


GILLARD/BROWN $10 bil DEAL GAVE US THE WINDMILLS

There were some things Abbott wasn’t prepared to do to gain Government in 2010... one was to “sell my arse” to Bob Brown, the other was to plaster the beautiful Aussie landscape with wind turbines. Julia Gillard was willing to do both, and anything else that secured her the keys to The Lodge.


THE BRAIN’S LEFT HEMISPHERE IS LABOR’S SECRET PLACE

The only defence of Bill Shorten the Left can offer is that “the Libs did it too”. Well, the Libs are guilty of many things but certainly not of aspiring to care for the welfare of workers through unions only to be bought off by employers.


MARTIN IS NO LITTLE RAY OF SUNSHINE


"I THINK YOU MIGHT BE STUFFED BILL"

A large "donation" to Bill Shorten's 2007 campaign that was only declared over the weekend sent the Left media racing to their laptops to Google Tony Abbott's comparative sins. Voila! He also had been late in declaring "donations".


EXPECT IMMORALITY, NOT ILLEGALITY

Did Bill Shorten swap workers’ benefits for union fees? Yes he did. Did he hide Gillard and Wilson’s theft from his AWU members? Yes he did. Did he try to hide the HSU fraud? Yes he did. Did he have Bob Kernohan bashed? Yes he did. Did he rape a drunk 16 year-old girl? Yes he did. Did he knife two sitting Labor Prime Ministers? Yes he did. Did he... oh, I could go on all day, because this bloke has a rap sheet longer than both the Kray brothers combined.


BLACK AND WHITE BULLSHIT ARTISTS

"We do not understand why she feels it's necessary to misrepresent her ethnicity", said her parents. When American Rachel Dolezal identified as being black, despite the fact that she was actually white, the world’s media pounced on her and tore her integrity to pieces.


GILLARD GAVE $10-$25 MILLION TO CLINTONS

Evidence has been unearthed showing that in late 2011 Julia Gillard used borrowed taxpayer funds of between $10 and $25 million to give to the infamous Clinton Foundation. The money was funnelled through the tax-free charity AusAID which was suspiciously brought under the auspices of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade.



WHY IRAQIS RUN, WHILE KURDS STAND AND FIGHT

Make no mistake, Abbott is champing on the bit and wants a fair dinkum war on ISIS but he needs Obama to move first! Unfortunately Obama has no intention of moving anywhere and his 61 member coalition of the unwilling is running the other way faster than the Iraqis.



SO LABOR MUST STICK WITH SHORTEN EH?

... like hell it must!

Uncle Kevin’s only claim to fame is that he may have lost fewer seats than Gillard would have in the 2013 election. It was still a record-breaking landslide loss and everything else involving Kev was calibrated in varying degrees of a disaster.


THE ABC THINKS IT'S LOOKING OKAY

Had to scull another bottle of Mylanta last night and steel myself to endure another hour of the smarmy-faced Tony Jones. Well, he certainly lived up to expectations... yep, he still doesn't get it!


PULL THE OTHER ONE ANGELA... WE ARE SUPPOSED TO PAY WHAT?

To default or not to default? That is the question and don’t bother holding a referendum that everyone already knows the result of... it will be exactly the same result as that of the last election, you know, the one that rocketed Leftist Alex Tsipras to the prime ministership on a promise he wouldn’t pay.


AN ANGRY TURNBULL TEARS CASSIDY A NEW ONE

When Malcolm Turnbull attacks his beloved ABC you can be certain it is in deep trouble. “What’s the difference in Zaky Mallah going into a shopping centre and going into an ABC studio?”, Barrie Cassidy stupidly asked Turnbull on his “Insiders” program. With that one inane question Cassidy exposed all that is incurably decadent with the ABC.


KHALED SHARROUF MAY NOT BE DEAD

...but his kids’ lives are over

The nice and normal Aussie Granny, Karen Nettleton, who pines for her grandchildren will be disappointed because she will never see them or her daughter again unless she too travels to Syria.
