DOES OSCAR HAVE A LEG TO STAND ON?

There is no doubt Oscar Pistorius will be found guilty. Guilty of what, is the only matter yet to be resolved.


BARRY HAD NO CHOICE

The ICAC is a creation of the conservatives intended to rein in NSW Labor’s corruption and, although a bottle of Grange hardly seems a reason for resignation, the corrupt Labor Opposition would have ensured yet-to-come ICAC and RC findings were diluted and defrayed from the main game.


AND NOW FOR SOME AUSSIE CULTURE

Hey Malcolm, want a nurse of George?... Malcolm? Where the bloody hell are you, Malcolm?



WHEN IT'S OK TO RAPE A 13yo GIRL


BOOTCAMP FOR THE BROTHERHOOD

I’m exhausted! Six weeks of bonding with the Islamic Brotherhood Bootcamp was bloody brilliant. I’ve been completely cleansed of all my dastardly infidel thoughts and since I’ve replaced “Faaaark” on the golf course with “Allahu Akbar” the birdies have been coming thick and fast.


ABBOTT ALL AT SEA WITH A PINGER

It’s grand that the PM can announce to the world, and China in particular, that we are “virtually” certain we have located the black box from flight MH370. It would be even grander if it was remotely correct.


DON’T THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER

We’re about to cop a dose of monarchy here and the ooohs and aaahs over baby George will add a little more contact adhesive to mother England, much to the republicans’ chagrin.


THE BLOKE WITH A HEAD YOU'D NEVER GET TIRED OF KICKIN'

And supercilious snobbery that puts Whitlam’s egomania to shame. Are any of his vainglorious snippets tongue-in-cheek? Hardly. Condescending contemptuousness for peers has always been Bob Carr’s calling card.


DID ISLAMIC YOUTHS RAPE ANOTHER YOUNG MOTHER?

...you can Bendigo Bank on it!

Bendigo is a beautiful Victorian town steeped in Aussie gold-rush history and treasured as an inland jewel by its inhabitants, well by most of them.


MAYBE I'M JUST A DINOSAUR

I am now certain I must at least be some sort of phobe because I found the Kiwi kindergarten get together for baby George a bit unsettling.


TIME TO SHUT SHARIA DOWN

The Pickering Post reported last week: “Sharia Banking is also booming with the assistance of the NAB.... allowing the Islamist to give the finger to the infidel next door.” So today’s announcement that the NAB is pouring a further $15 million into its Sharia banking arm led me to search for more information.


CHINA IS A DIFFERENT KETTLE OF FISH

The world’s soon to be number one economy is precariously addicted to growth and we are precariously dependent on its continued addiction.



FREE-TRADER ABBOTT, THE SMILING ASSASSIN

Free trade agreements (FTAs) with Japan, South Korea and China will assist our exports and lower the price on imported goods, including motor vehicles. It’s small wonder local carmakers headed for the hills.


DON’T CRITICISE MEDIA’S LEFT... unless you have a thick skin


WHY SHORTEN IS IN BIG SHIT

[I was unaware of Bill Shorten's family bereavement... I regret the timing]

The West Australian Senate by election results spell the end for Shorten. All by-elections give a kick up the bum to the sitting Government but when the Opposition cops a similar kick up the bum, red lights start flashing for Labor.


DRUG RAID ON GOLD COAST

... Jamie Pickering arrested

Attempting to get information is impossible when police use Sunday to avoid a suspect getting bail. The only thing I have been able to discover is that newspaper reports, as usual, are wrong.
