Prior to the 2010 election Labor said there would be no carbon tax, but there was. Prior to the 2013 election Labor said there would be no carbon tax, but there is. Tony Abbott promised there would be no carbon tax but Labor, having lost the election, now insists there should be! Crumbs! Are you following this?
An Australian Prime Minister is not asked to make a Parliamentary statement on two pieces of flotsam in the Southern Ocean unless further critical information is being purposefully withheld from incompetent Malaysian officials.
Benny was an orphan and was relentlessly abused at a Mittagong facility for boys. By the time he reached his teens he was going from gaol to gaol becoming feloniously smarter with each move.
We are now closer to World War III than at any time since 1945 and, if perchance the missing Malaysian flight is in any way a factor in that horrific forecast, then we should rightly be fearful of the fools in charge of world peace: Vice President Biden, Secretary of State Kerry and President Obama.
Under normal circumstances, Assistant Treasurer Arthur Sinodinos would cop a pink slip when he arrives for work this morning. Instead PM Abbott will utter the usual defence of “a presumption of innocence” and all that guff.

South Australia might share a border with all other States, but it certainly doesn’t share their political philosophies... it has been the problem child State since Federation.
A bank robber can be reformed to re-enter society as a decent citizen. A “correctional” centre can never “correct” a paedophile. No jail sentence can reform him, change him or help him and it’s a shame that judges and parole boards still don’t understand the difference between the two.
Unaccustomed as I am to conspiratorial theorems, here goes... Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 flew for over four hours after its last point of contact and that creates a credible scenario if, as reported in the Malaysian Press, an Aircraft Worthiness Directive (an AD) was current for the Boeing 777.
The verdict was predictable and based on a (denied) confession. But for me, and probably the jury, Cowan was guilty the moment he led police to the site of Daniel’s remains after nine years’ fruitless searching. This bastard was the only person in the world who could do that.
I’m no Tony Abbott fan, but fair dinkum, any sane observer would be entitled to think that what he has achieved in six months with a hostile Senate is nothing short of extraordinary.
