MOST AUSTRALIANS NOW ANTI-MUSLIM

In national polling, taken almost four years ago, the ABC reported half of all Australians surveyed held anti-Muslim sentiments. Four years on, it’s safe to assume that the vast majority of Australians now want something substantive done about the Islamic threat.



2014 POLITICAL DEXTERITY AWARDS

For excellence in verbal and ergonomic dexterity over the past 12 months:



A TERRORISM EVENT “LIKELY” OVER XMAS

...golly, these Presbyterians are a worry

It appears those angry Presbyterians might be cooking something up for Christmas dinner. It’s an ominous Christmas message from Tony Abbott but it may well be ASIO’s way of covering all bases before getting legless during the season of good will to all men.



UNOPENED XMAS PRESENTS FOR EIGHT MISSING KIDS



TURNING BACK WELFARE FRAUD WILL NOT BE AS EASY AS TURNING BACK BOATS

The reshuffle sees Kelly O’Dwyer as a definite plus, Defence is way beyond Kevin Andrews’ ability and he will fail miserably. He will not withstand the might of a Defence bureaucracy that delights in chewing up and spitting out its Ministers. Peter Dutton takes on Immigration, but that's a job that’s already done.


WHO NEEDS F-35 JOINT STRIKE FIGHTERS

With the assistance of China, North Korea has embarked on a war without warplanes, tanks or nuclear armed ICBMs and the damage wrought could be greater. Not a single shot will be fired in the cyber warfare of Kim Jong-un’s choice and once again, like with the ISIS, the West has been caught with its pants down, ill prepared and embarrassed.



HMMMM, THAT’LL DO ME, SAYS GILLARD



JULIA GETS OFF SCOT FREE?

... um, it depends on Bruce

For three years, despite a mountain of damning evidence, I have always maintained Julia Gillard will never be charged, let alone see the inside of a jail. Commissioner Dyson Heydon’s scathing criticism of her is like water off a duck’s back to Julia and she now says an apology is in order. Yes, it is... so when do we get one?



AFGHAN'S TALIBAN GEARS UP FOR ANOTHER IRAQ

The Taliban's shooting of 132 schoolkids in schoolrooms takes a special kind of Islam, the Saudi Wahhabi kind, the same kind that ISIS espouses and the same kind that Australian Muslims are breaking their necks to join overseas, but when their passports are cancelled they are forced to commit their terrorist attacks on home soil instead.



INQUIRY WILL SHOW WIDE ISLAMIC SUPPORT FOR TERRORIST

... but will Abbott buy it or bury it?

When the flowers have gone and the blood is cleaned from the walls and the bullet holes spackled over in the Lindt Cafe, outrage will slowly replace grief and the true story of a well-planned, albeit amateurish, terrorism attack will emerge.


ABBOTT IS ENRAGED

... but he still doesn't get it

A national leader needs to be non combative and inclusive in times of crisis but Tony Abbott is seething inside and he has finally mentioned the word “terrorism”. Unfortunately he still talks of a “madman” and a “lone wolf”. He still maintains the Islamic State is not an Islamic movement.
