WHEN ABBOTT FELL ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL

It was winter in 2015 and bloody cold in Canberra as Malcolm Turnbull and the Stick Insect continued to plot the surgical assassination of Prime Minister, Tony Abbott. Turnbull felt it was important to use Abbott’s continued poor polling as a reason. All was going to plan, even a Canning by-election later in the year in the Stick Insect’s home State of WA appeared a certain defeat for the Libs and would consolidate even further justification for Abbott’s knifing.



NOTIFICATION

Due to a current radiation regime lasting 20 days I am unable during this period to give the PP blog the attention it deserves. I will return when the radiation is completed and I hope you will resist the trolls in the interim.Thank you, Larry


THE CONTRAST IS BLACK AND WHITE, CHALK AND CHEESE

The never Trumpers must surely now reconsider him as likely to be America’s greatest ever President. For those who still have a preference for Obama and Clinton please consider this:


HALF THE HOUSE LIKELY INELIGIBLE… IT’S TIME FOR AN ELECTION!

Outspoken Muslim Member of the Lower House, Labor’s Anne Aly, has been keeping a low profile since she notified the House last year that she had sent a request to Egyptian authorities to nullify her nationality 10 days before the close of nominations for her seat of Cowan.



ONE SMALL SURPLUS DOES NOT A LARGE DEBT SOLVE

A five maybe six billion dollar budget surplus makes a very small hole in a five or six hundred billion dollar debt. And who’s to say any government will use any small projected surplus to pay down the deficit? Certainly not Labor.


WELCOME TO WHOSE COUNTRY?

By Frank Salter

In the last several years I have observed many “Acknowledgment of Country” ceremonies. The wording varies but typically, at the start of a meeting, the master of ceremonies declares that the meeting is being held on the traditional lands of a particular indigenous people or peoples in general.



THE DON DOESN’T NEED A WALL…he just needs ten minutes with Abbott

Trump asked for $67 billion for his 3,000 mile wall… they gave him enough for a few hundred yards. DC is mostly united against his wall, but does the Don really need the bloody thing? No, he doesn’t.


ABBOTT STOPPED THESE TWO DOGS RETURNING TO THEIR VOMIT

... so Turnbull returned there instead

NBN, NDIS, GONSKI, FINKEL… all part of a failed Rudd, Gillard, Rudd era but re-invented by Turnbull. The NBN was never on budget and can never be a success, because no-one will buy it at what it cost to build it, so it will always remain a large part of our deficit.


BOMBER THOMPSON MOVES FROM USER TO DEALER

...and PP predicted he was gone in January this year

There would be very few Aussie Rules followers, players or officials who were not aware of Bomber’s cocaine habit and his association with bikies. Perhaps the coppers only took an interest when he was accused of gravitating to dealing in ice. http://pickeringpost.com/story/bomber-thomson-is-the-cokehead-but-it-s-the-afl-that-should-be-in-gaol-/7890


WILL THE DON FALL FOR KIM’S BULLSHIT?

Ha, we know South Korea’s little Lefty pacifist, Moon Jae-in, has fallen for it with his overly extended cuddles and sickeningly long pudgy hand clasps, but common sense says Little Rocket Man is up to something dodgy and the Don is not short on common sense.



YOUR VOTE WILL BE FOR WHO YOU DETEST THE LEAST

And that is not what our vote was intended to reflect. The knifing of a first term successful PM was also not intended to reflect our so-called democratic voting system. But there you go… it has happened more than once and it has eroded the value of our vote. Who in their right mind would vote for Turnbull’s Party, and who in their right mind would vote for Shorten’s. No-one in their right mind would vote for either.



COSBY'S VICTIMS CLAIM VICTORY FOR “#ME TOO” MOVEMENT

And that’s a shame because sexual assault is far more serious than a crass feminist movement. Harvey Weinstein must have had some carryover into this re-trial where, due to the statute of limitations, only five of 62 complainants were allowed to testify. But with the sentencing phase to come, the judge will likely allow victim-impact statements from everyone who wants to see Cosby die penniless in jail.
