Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.

"SHARKS CAN KILL PEOPLE BUT PEOPLE CAN'T KILL SHARKS": Greens

“Whales must not be slaughtered but for a $5,000 baby bonus, late-term infants can be butchered in an equally bloody mess”: Greens. “Native animals’ habitat must not be back-burnt but people can be incinerated”: Greens.


THE SCARE SCAM IS WELL AND TRULY SUNK

Imagine an ice mass larger than all of Europe, or almost twice the size of Australia. Hard to conceive of anything that size, I know. Then imagine a little blue boat full of wankers approaching a little bay somewhere on the 32,000 km coastline of that ice mass determined to prove global warming.


GLOBAL WARMING PUT ON ICE?

After having been embarrassingly ice-locked in the Antarctic, 52 confused warmists are now wending their way back home while frantically scribbling amended theses on why they didn’t find palm trees, tropical fauna and a maitai bar at the foot of Mount Erebus.


We are Australian

WE, the people of a free nation of blokes, sheilas and the occasional wanker. We come from many lands (although a few too many of us come from New Zealand) and although we live in the best country in the world, we reserve the right to bitch and moan about it whenever we bloody like.


Dear Ms Roxon,

Hair shampoos, and particularly hair conditioners, make billions for chemical companies but they damage your hair causing dryness, lack of lustre and split ends. Your hair will look good for a day or two but it then reverts to a worse mess than it was before. Wanna know why?



TOBACCO FIBS

In the last post I nonchalantly suggested that cancer and tobacco are not linked. I copped a heap of abuse including demands that I qualify such a ridiculous statement. Okay, here it is. It’s long and should only interest those who relish the truth.


I WANT SOME OF WHAT NEWMAN'S ON

Okay, so I’m in the minority. Almost 75% of you disagree with me on Premier Campbell Newman’s VLAD laws (can I suggest that Post poll result might be much lower on another forum?) Polarisation on this issue is staggering and that’s understandable.


ANOTHER YANDINA MAN

Hi Larry, I am one of the Yandina 5 who was wrongfully arrested on November 1. I am also not a member of any so called motorcycle gang but my brother is and so is my father... that is where they are able to say I am “guilty by association”.


A PIZZA WITH THE LOT...

"A pizza with the lot" story yesterday has so far attracted 320,000 readers and over 5,000 shares and that’s just on Facebook. The debate is volatile.


A PIZZA WITH THE LOT

Joshua Shane Carew sat in solitary confinement for 15 days in Bisbane's Watchhouse where there is no TV, no radio, just a basin, toilet and a concrete bed with one blanket. He is now in Queensland’s Arthur Gorrie Correctional Centre. His wife and two young children Holly (4) and Jake (2) have missed him terribly over Christmas and he has not been allowed to phone them or have them visit him.



HAPPY CHRISTMAS

Thanks for a year of interesting, clever and informed comments. A Happy Christmas to all and we’ll give ‘em heaps next year. I am going to take a few days off with my family of 41, sink a few reds and tell a few lies. Thanks again and see y’all real soon, Larry



SALVOS SACKED

...while interpreters still coach the illegals

[Exclusive] A Christmas Island resident has expressed disgust to The Pickering Post at how Salvation Army employees, supported by Iranian and Afghani interpreters, have been instructing arrivals on how to cheat the system.



NEARER MY GOD TO THEE

Has Tony Abbott been having some deep and meaningfuls with his God? The festive season has certainly enveloped him in a fuzzy collegial glow. He appears to be experiencing some sort of an epiphany, a newfound spiritual capacity for forgiveness. It is breathtaking... and politically dangerous.


THE MACRO MONEY-GO-ROUND

Okay, I copped some flak for suggesting a US recovery was imminent. But here’s why it is and here’s why Australia’s debt is also recoverable and why the only fly in the ointment is China.


Dear Mr Abbott,

I’m so happy for you getting into the spirit of Christmas!


GOVT WASTE

...we're due for a Draconian diet

Thousands of partly- and fully-funded quangos: (Half can go.) The ABC: (An Epsom salts job there.) Security Agencies: (Must be pruned and amalgamated.)
