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

Contempt of Royal Commission

“(1) Any person who intentionally insults or disturbs a Royal Commission, or interrupts the proceedings of a Royal Commission, or uses any insulting language towards a Royal Commission, or by writing or speech uses words false and defamatory of a Royal Commission, or is in any manner guilty of any intentional contempt of a Royal Commission, shall be guilty of an offence.” (under a penalty of 3 months' jail.)



DUFUS DREYFUS IS AT IT AGAIN!


BENDIGO’S GANG RAPISTS EXPOSED

No, this is not about the Bendigo Bank’s rapacious associates who have a financial interest in the land surrounding the proposed mega mosque. Nor is it about how the Bendigo Bank cancelled the accounts of all those who objected to the rape of their city. Nor is it about the corrupted Bendigo councillors who did not declare an interest.


GAY LOBBY INCENSED AS ABBOTT INSISTS THE PEOPLE DECIDE

... and that’s exactly what the gays don’t want

How to tell if you’re ready to accept gay marriage? When you’re ready to accept two blokes kissing and they stop calling you a homophobe.


OH WHAT A FEELING!

Twenty six year-old internet blogger, Kiran Gandhi ran this year’s London marathon without a tampon knowing she had her period. In a message to the sisterhood she said, “I felt kind of like, Yeah! Fuck you!, I felt very empowered by that, I did... I ran to say, ‘it does exist’, and that we overcome it every day.” Every day, eh? That’s some sort of Guiness record isn’t it!


R.S.V.P. WOULD HAVE BEEN CHEAPER TONY

Poor Tony Burke’s 20-year marriage was threadbare but there was a tasty little piece of fluff in his office perfect for bedding. She was the mail girl, ex-GetUP, a global warmist, dedicated Green advocate, lover of everything Left and her husband had just shot through. Poor Tony could hardly conceal his woody.


SPEAKER’S ROLE A RETREAT FOR REDUNDANCIES

Tony Smith has wisely indicated he will not attend Party Room meetings. This blog has been banging on for almost two years about Bronwyn Bishop’s attendance in the Party Room... and that it could be her downfall.


‘TONY ABBOTT SAYS A CAPTAIN SHOULD KNOW WHEN IT’S TIME TO GO’

It was Tony Abbott’s lack of support for Bronwyn Bishop that made her position as Speaker untenable. I and most other commentators agreed she had no choice other than to resign. Once your leader fails to support you there’s nowhere to hide, it’s an automatic death sentence.


ASHES TO ASHES...


U.S. POLITICS AIN'T BORING

I copped some flak last week for suggesting that Donald Trump would, "never see the inside of the White House". Well, stand by for Trump’s slide down the polls and out of contention and watch out for the ascendancy of some serious contenders.



WE'LL ONLY BE IN TROUBLE WHEN WE'RE DEAD!

I have a good friend who was formerly a Member of the House of Lords. He is around 460th in line to the throne and cousin to the Queen. I met Lord George Milford Haven (nee Mountbatten) just after he had busted up with his wife Sarah someone important.
