BRONWYN COPS A BURKE BLISTER

...and takes it like a lady

Bronwyn Bishop did not take The Post’s advice when she was awarded her coveted Speakership. She did not absent herself from the Libs’ Party Room and now she is paying the price of perception and Fairfax's frantic cries of bias.



THE COCONUT CRAB AND THE ROCK SPIDER

A genuine source of fascination can be found in the study of genetics. Why do some species use an innate, pre-programmed genetic structure to survive yet other species, including humans, need to be taught how to survive?



WOGS, CHINKS, ABOS AND WHITIES

Greens and Labor’s Left dream of the perfect egalitarian PC world where no-one is offended by anything and everyone sleeps in the same conjugal bed. Well, that’s not the way it works, fellas, and it’s you lot that have made an art form of offending people.


AN IMPIOUS PELL HAS A DATE WITH HELL

If you are a devout Catholic you should not defend what this man stands for. If you do, then you are denying all that you stand for. He has risen like buoyant faecal matter to the upper echelons of the Vatican, as “Financial Adviser to the Pope”, in return for saving it millions in damages... damages that could and should have assisted its victims.


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.
