PIGGY PONDERS HIS POLITICAL PROSPECTS

The man who handed us Julia Gillard has lately been trying to distance himself from union corruption. Recently he has been talking some unusual common sense that runs foul of his Trotsky ideals and gives Bill Shorten a solid back hander.


IT'S GILLARD ALL OVER AGAIN FOR THE CROWS

The moment Bob Such called in sick, the man with the dead eyes, Jay Weatherill, raced round to the other Independent Geoff Brock’s joint with his favourite Scotch to offer him a deal he couldn’t refuse.

IS ABBOTT PLAYING FUNNY BUGGERS WITH THE CARBON TAX?

...surely not!

Prior to the 2010 election Labor said there would be no carbon tax, but there was. Prior to the 2013 election Labor said there would be no carbon tax, but there is. Tony Abbott promised there would be no carbon tax but Labor, having lost the election, now insists there should be! Crumbs! Are you following this?



POSSIBLE PUZZLE PIECE INDICATES SUICIDE

An Australian Prime Minister is not asked to make a Parliamentary statement on two pieces of flotsam in the Southern Ocean unless further critical information is being purposefully withheld from incompetent Malaysian officials.



THE CASE AGAINST MANDATORY SENTENCING

...a true story

Benny was an orphan and was relentlessly abused at a Mittagong facility for boys. By the time he reached his teens he was going from gaol to gaol becoming feloniously smarter with each move.


THE BOYS IN CHARGE

We are now closer to World War III than at any time since 1945 and, if perchance the missing Malaysian flight is in any way a factor in that horrific forecast, then we should rightly be fearful of the fools in charge of world peace: Vice President Biden, Secretary of State Kerry and President Obama.

BOEING BOMBSHELL


ARTHUR IS SAFE FROM TONY

... for now

Under normal circumstances, Assistant Treasurer Arthur Sinodinos would cop a pink slip when he arrives for work this morning. Instead PM Abbott will utter the usual defence of “a presumption of innocence” and all that guff.



THE S.A. PROBLEM CHILD

When the Dutch first sighted the South Australian coastline in 1626, they sailed straight past it. Did the Dutch know something we didn’t? South Australia might share a border with all other States, but it certainly doesn’t share their political philosophies... it has been the problem child State since Federation.

THE INCURABLE PAEDOPHILE

A bank robber can be reformed to re-enter society as a decent citizen. A “correctional” centre can never “correct” a paedophile. No jail sentence can reform him, change him or help him and it’s a shame that judges and parole boards still don’t understand the difference between the two.


MYSTERY FLIGHT MAY NEVER BE FOUND

Unaccustomed as I am to conspiratorial theorems, here goes... Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 flew for over four hours after its last point of contact and that creates a credible scenario if, as reported in the Malaysian Press, an Aircraft Worthiness Directive (an AD) was current for the Boeing 777.
