LABOR'S LITANY OF SHORTEN LIES

Oh, just pass this Bill first and we will ensure the needed amendments are passed later. A LIE! Today when many reasonable amendments were suggested on each occasion they were thrown out. The Labor Party said that their Members would have a free vote as did the Coalition assure their Members. A LIE! Each time failed lawyer Dreyfus approached the dispatch box he said, "Labor is not voting for this amendment". Clearly Labor voted as one against all amendments.


DON’T DO IT, DONALD

…just don’t do it!

Embassies and Consulates of most countries are sited in the host country’s capital city, and relocating the US Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem is about the most provocative move that can be made.


SOMEWHERE OVER THE RAINBOW

…we were told a big fat lie

Well, it was always going to be the case if we voted YES to a phantom Bill without any content available. Only a deceptive question about “equality” that everyone would have agreed to! “Just trust us”, the rainbow mob implored. “Just pass the Bill and we will sort out your protections later, just trust us."



KRISTINA CAN NEARLY, BUT BARNABY BOLTS IN

A bitter Tony Windsor dug up all he could find on Barnaby’s private life, but the not so dirty dirt didn’t stick. Yes, the man who gave us Julia Gillard and didn’t have the balls to run against Barnaby this time, was content to sit at home on his social media accounts trying to destroy the character of the bloke who has always had his measure.



"OH, YOU DON'T GET ME I'M PART OF THE UNION...."

Try spearing eels in a bathtub with a broom handle with the light off and you'll find it's even harder to nail Dastyari and Shorten. There is nothing more slippery than a Labor politician in the shit, yet somehow Shorten has managed to project himself as a responsible leader in disciplining a little Iranian rat while the little Iranian rat complains that his kids are suffering. Crumbs!



WHY SHORTEN CAN’T SACK THE DODGY IRANIAN RAT


SHORTEN'S LITTLE SHIT SHOULD BE SHOT…

In any other Western country this little Iranian rat would be sitting in a military jail awaiting charges of treason and a firing squad. How can any government allow a Parliamentarian of any colour to sit in Parliament while operating on a foreign payroll?


HARMLESS INTERACTION IS BECOMING QUITE A HANDFUL

Grabbing a bum was very much like a high five (fifty years ago). Laying a PC stencil over what was accepted fifty years ago doesn’t give a fair indication of acceptability now. Invading someone’s personal space still needed communal consent but, unless you were bitter enemies, that consent was usually a given… and if it wasn’t you soon found out and desisted. Don Burke and Rolf Harris were (are) in a very different category.


SHOULD WE TALK NOW MALCOLM?

Pauline’s choice of Peter Slipper’s little wet oyster mate as adviser has ensured One Nation’s dismal loss and that the LNP is not able to join in government with them. In the process One Nation has handed banana benders another term of two hard-to-like Labor females going absolutely nowhere except backwards.



SIMPLETONS IN SANTA SUITS

The belief that only bogan fools vote Labor or Green gains credence when you notice those who leave university with a law or medical degree. GPs and solicitors are among the dumbest people I have known and they all have dutifully joined Labor or the Greens. Is it any wonder Whitlam and his successors all wanted free university education.
