CLIVE THE CLOWN TRIES TO PLAY A GAME OF BRINKMANSHIP

Tony Abbott’s “Direct Action” policy is no more than a sop to the diminishing number of voters who still believe we are causing the globe to warm. Let’s get this straight, Tony Abbott puts global warming in the same category as Hansel and Gretel, as do politicians from both sides with an IQ above their boot size.

ISLAM TRAINS ITS SIGHTS ON SCHOOLS

All three of the UK’s major Parties have expressed alarm at a letter circulating among 25 of Birmingham’s schools: "We have an obligation to our children to fulfil our roles and ensure these schools are run on Islamic principles. We are on our way to getting rid of even more head teachers and taking over their schools."



BADGERYS IS AN ABBOTT NBN MOMENT

There is good reason a second airport for Sydney has remained on ice for over 40 years... it’s a hot potato not even Neville Wran or Bob Hawke wanted on their headstones. Now it will be engraved on Tony Abbott’s and his wish to be known as an “infrastructure Prime Minister” will be complete. But he will be sitting in his wheel chair in an aged home wishing he had never thought of it


AN EASTER TALE

Pictured is a stone altar within the Vatican walls, the room is called a “meditation area”, but you have to wonder what tales that ancient block of stone could tell. [CORRECTION: The altar shown is in the UN where the Vatican holds permanent observer status.]

There is no doubt Oscar Pistorius will be found guilty. Guilty of what, is the only matter yet to be resolved.


BARRY HAD NO CHOICE

AND NOW FOR SOME AUSSIE CULTURE

Hey Malcolm, want a nurse of George?... Malcolm? Where the bloody hell are you, Malcolm?

BOOTCAMP FOR THE BROTHERHOOD

I’m exhausted! Six weeks of bonding with the Islamic Brotherhood Bootcamp was bloody brilliant. I’ve been completely cleansed of all my dastardly infidel thoughts and since I’ve replaced “Faaaark” on the golf course with “Allahu Akbar” the birdies have been coming thick and fast.


ABBOTT ALL AT SEA WITH A PINGER

It’s grand that the PM can announce to the world, and China in particular, that we are “virtually” certain we have located the black box from flight MH370. It would be even grander if it was remotely correct.


DON’T THROW THE BABY OUT WITH THE BATHWATER

We’re about to cop a dose of monarchy here and the ooohs and aaahs over baby George will add a little more contact adhesive to mother England, much to the republicans’ chagrin.


THE BLOKE WITH A HEAD YOU'D NEVER GET TIRED OF KICKIN'

And supercilious snobbery that puts Whitlam’s egomania to shame. Are any of his vainglorious snippets tongue-in-cheek? Hardly. Condescending contemptuousness for peers has always been Bob Carr’s calling card.
