SHORTEN DUMPS THE CARBON TAX

...and the Left faction with it

When Albanese promised he would not allow the Carbon Tax Repeal Bill to pass the Senate, he meant it. When Shorten promised the same, he didn’t mean it. And the first nail in Bill’s coffin has been driven home with a Left-handed hammer.


THE LADY IS ALL CLASS


NO CHIPPS OFF THE OLD BLOCK LEFT

The late Don Chipp once gave me some advice, he said: “Larry, no-one learns anything while they are talking.” Since then I have listened to everyone... except Al Gore that is.


WHEN GAY IS NOT ALL BEER AND SKITTLES

Hidden among the hate mail I received about the recent AIDS story was this:


NO NEED TO CHANGE THE MARRIAGE ACT, JUST CHANGE YOUR SEX!

The New South Wales Appeals Court ruled on May 31 of this year that Australians need not tick either "male" or "female" on official documents requesting their gender. Oh really?



HEY ABC, IT'S OVER FELLAS!... sorry, but you lost that election


MORE DANGEROUS HOT AIR

...this time from Al Gore

The ABC has once again trawled the depths of fantasy for support for the unsupportable, and no prizes for guessing who they came up with: The scammer who has made the most money from the global warming fraud, Al Gore. The culpable Greens were nowhere to be seen for comment.


SAME SEX MARRIAGE...

okay, but why not wait?

The High Court will have a problem with the ACT’s legislation. If enacted it may well be a toe in the door to some conjugal oddities.


HIV ON INCREASE... AGAIN!

The Government-sponsored AIDS debate, along with ‘smoking causes gangrene and blindness’ and global warming hysteria, is the greatest lie ever perpetrated on a receptive public. AIDS is not and never has been a heterosexual problem. Ask any heterosexual.



Dear Mr Bandt,

I know you are a lot smarter than me but I was wondering why you blamed Mr Abbott for the fires ‘cos I’ve seen photos of Mr Abbott trying to put them out.


The perfect cup of tea


A 'SPARROW' FALLS PREY TO PRETENSE

Intelligent crooks are rarely caught, it is the dumb ones who invariably fall victim to their own stupidity. A small story I found in the New York Times told of notorious Somalian pirate, kingpin Mohamed Abdi Hassan (nicknamed Bigmouth) who was demanding Western millions for the return of ships and oil tankers the size of aircraft carriers and their crews.



A CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGER!

A daughter of struggling immigrant parents? A far left socialist? Criminal connections? Betrays loyal colleagues? A radical feminist? An atheist? A UN devotee? Pro late-term abortion? Gay activist? A radical, duplicitous Emily Lister with an ambitious, unfettered lust for social reconstruction?


HOW DO YA LIKE THEM LITTLE APPLES, ANNA?

... what really happened in that Party room

“We will have zero tolerance for disunity”, said Bill Shorten with a straight face as Caucus members exited a Party room sporting a number of knives between pairs of shoulder blades. Bill had done his factional homework long before the leadership vote that finally sent Albo and a few other Party faithful to Coventry.


A BILL THE MEMBERS DON'T WANT TO PAY

Correct me if I am wrong (‘cos I’m bloody hopeless at sums) but I believe one Labor Caucus vote is equivalent to about 1400 rank-and-file votes. So, if my sums are right, it’s difficult to imagine exactly what this inclusive nonsense was supposed to achieve!
