LEPRECHAUNS AND UNIONS DON'T MIX

If ever a multi-national Australian company should be exposed to international shareholding, majority or otherwise, it’s the globally competing QANTAS! Only short-sighted Labor unions would stand in the way.


Dear Mr Abbott,

My Dad thinks you are terrific and my Mum thinks you are sort of okay. My Aunty Mavis calls you a dreamboat, but Mum says she’s just got oldtimers disease or something.


TWO GRUBS GET TO AIR THEIR LAUNDRY

... despite Justice Rares' "political motives"

The Federal Court today overturned Justice Rares’ decision to disallow James Ashby a hearing regarding sexual harassment complaints against Peter Slipper. If Justice Rares’ ruling was designed to keep the Gillard Government in power he succeeded, but he did Slipper no favours, today he was lumbered with Ashby’s court costs.



AN INTERVIEW WITH CORBY'S JAIL MATE

How well did you know Schapelle Corby during the time you were in Kerobokan? “I knew her very well.” Were you in for the same offence?


HOW LABOR PLANNED THE LIBS' POLL

Mending a previous Government’s fences is never a popular pastime and Julia Gillard knew that was true when she went on her crazy spending spree. Crumbs, she couldn’t even get through lunch with Hugh Jackman without slipping him a cool $12 million.


PAYING TOO MUCH FOR PROSTITUTES

Craig Thomson has paid in spades for his hookers, the question is when should he stop paying. He is a pariah to both sides of politics. Labor no longer needs him and he is the symbolic first of many corrupt unionists about to meet their maker.


PUTIN WILL ACT TO RETAIN UKRAINE


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.

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!
