Larry Pickering

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.

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!



MALALA WINS ALL HEARTS

... while Nobel loses all legitimacy

No person has ever been more deserving of a peace prize than little schoolgirl, Malala Yousafzai. The world shed a tear as she bravely recovered from the Taliban’s cowardly attempts to kill her and her dream that little Pakistani girls might be educated.


WHY ELECT THE ARCHITECT OF CALAMITY?

Bill Shorten has done the most to deliberately engineer Labor’s current malaise. His MO is reminiscent of the cartoon of an ambulance driver who is attending to pedestrians he has just run over. “I bet you’re all glad I was around”, says the grinning ambulance driver.


GREENS GO FROM THE PENTHOUSE TO THE OUTHOUSE

Christine Milne is not smiling lately and the reason is not to limit those wrinkles, but looming irrelevance. A deterioration from dictating government policy to ‘why don't you want me as leader and why is no-one listening’ in one Saturday election is a devastating decline in distinction.


FLANNERY FLEES THE SURGING SEAS

At Coba Point, on the banks of the beautiful Hawkesbury, Mrs Alexandra Flannery lies Timless. The matrimonial bed wobbles, precariously perched on Besser Block bricks, as she reaches for her favourite book, ‘Viking King Canute’


ABC's CHAIRMAN JIM HAS AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE PM

A lonely little comment I noticed yesterday in the Pickering Post asked, “Why is the ABC so Left?” The short answer is because it can be. The long answer is because it’s a magnet for those wishing to freely espouse Leftist ideology without fear for ratings or bothersome advertisers.



MEDIA'S FIVE DAYS' SALIVATING OVER AN ABBOTT SIN

Where there is no rule there can be no transgression and MPs on both sides have preferred that there be no rule. “Common sense should be used”, the innocent few claim, but since when has common sense been a rule.



SCRIBBLINGS OF A LUNATIC FRINGE-DWELLER

In 'The Australian' this morning Graham Richardson is again at pains to denounce my contribution to the Gillard debate as "just part of the lunatic fringe". "No more than a few hundred people see that stuff", he said on Sky. Well, Richo, if that's the case, why bother with the continued attack?



DOGS RETURNING TO EACH OTHER'S VOMIT

SKY apparently had an absent-minded ABC moment when they agreed to telecast the lesbian love-ins that were the Gillard interviews. There was a good interview to be had there somewhere, but not by Summers.



OUTLAW ISLAM? ...we may have no choice

Freedom of religion and separation of Church and State is a pillar of Western constitutions. Christianity has certainly treated that privilege with scant respect but Islam uses this Western privilege as a Trojan horse to infiltrate us, dominate us and destroy us.



LIES AND MORE LIES

There are lies, damned lies and statistics and the UN’s IPCC members are masters of the art. For 25 years this UN Green committed organisation has lurched from one exposed outright lie to another in its desperate attempt to prove the ridiculous.
