SHORTEN HAS GILLARD-STYLE JUDGMENT

Bill Shorten has many deficiencies but his political prowess proves more than woefully wanting when it comes to his objection to a Royal Commission into union corruption.


WHEREVER RUDD WENT HE LEFT A BLOODY TRAIL

While an obnoxious Christine Milne and a snarling Richard Marles unite in blaming Abbott for their own transgressions there remains a PNG lesson to be learnt for all.


I'M GETTING MY NEW HOUSE!



ONE OCCASION CARR WAS CORRECT...

Iranian boat people are “economic migrants”, said Bob Carr to a dismayed Green alliance not accustomed to hearing the truth from its Labor partners. Most of the trouble seen in detention centres is from an influx of well-shod Iranian arrivals who believed the smugglers’ tales of a Southern Shangri La where free money falls like manna, if you promise not to work.


Apres SBY le deluge


AFP SENDS A MESSAGE TO CORBY

According to Indonesian officials, their Parole Board had no choice but to release Schapelle Corby. “It’s not my decision, it’s the law”, said the Minister for Justice. But if it was “his decision”, Corby would still be in jail where Australian Federal Police would also prefer her to be. Channel 7 executives want Corby to talk but AFP and Indonesian officials want her gagged. Why is that?



MARLES WEAVES HIMSELF A WEB

Richard Marles, Monday, Feb 17: “Labor's PNG (Manus Island) solution is the principal reason the boats have stopped.” Richard Marles, Tuesday, Feb 18: "This is now the second serious incident which has occurred at the Manus Island detention facility since the Abbott Government came to power."


RICHO LEAPS TO AWU DEFENCE

... and his own

Graham Richardson showed his true colours to 2GB’s Ben Fordham when he said Bill Ludwig “did everything he could” to bring the Gillard/Wilson fraud to the attention of the police. I nearly fell off my chair. Richo! Drop your trousers, we are having difficulty hearing you!


POLL PUTS SHORTEN ON DEATH ROW

The Nielson/Fairfax poll normally tilts toward Labor but its savaging of Bill Shorten last week has the Fairfax scribes madly re-penning their predictions prior to the more reliable Newspoll.


WHY I AM AN ATHEIST

...Christians look away now

I was about eight when I began to question everything. My parents became more and more entrenched in their religion. I hated it and all the people I had to be nice to.



THE REAL FACE OF KARZAI'S TALIBAN

Bibi Aisha is 19. A National Geographic photographer, Lynsey Addario, reports that “Bibi’s husband, a Taliban fighter, beat her from the day she was married, at age 12. After she escaped to seek a neighbour's help, her husband cut off her nose, ears, and hair.” Bibi got off lightly.


CREDIT WHERE CREDIT'S DUE

...1984 style

Ominous changes to information held on your credit file will come into effect from the 12th of March this year. Now, this won’t affect me because I don’t use credit cards and nor do hold a driver’s licence.



JAKARTA POST JOURNO WANTS MORRISON CHARGED

Two refugees who were returned to Indonesia in a lifeboat later died, according to a report in yesterday’s Jakarta Post. “Their ‘gifted’ lifeboat landed in jungle on the Javanese coast. The refugees and Indonesian crew then had to find their way through the jungle where two refugees drowned trying to cross a river.”


TOYOTA DUMPS ON HOCKEY

... it had no choice really

Toyota still has three long years of trying to limit losses for Tokyo and Joe Hockey is no more than an expendable politician when compared to the serious pain the union is still able to wreak on its dying victim.


GRACE COLLIER IS HOT!

Only former union officials like Bob Kernohan and Grace Collier understand the dark secrets that bedevil our failing industries. They fearlessly peel back the layers of union corruption and destructive graft that media’s Left denies exists.
