THE RED CRESCENT AND THE BEAR BARE THEIR TEETH

If ever you feel the need to say, “I told you so”, you can bet something has gone wrong. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is preparing to defy the Treaty of Lausanne that defines borders with Greece.



Dear Phoebe,

I am discontentedly disconcerted at your discombobulation over the procreative amplitude within my legislative assemblage.



SO DELIVER US FROM EVIL, FOR THINE IS THE KINGDOM, THE POWER AND THE GLORY,

… that’s if you want it!

Come on you NATs, not one of you can stand the bloke. He stands for everything you stand against. Your heart is still with Barnaby, your reason is with Christiansen and you will only ever get one chance at redemption for all Aussies. Just do it… and you will never be electorally forgotten.



BLOKES STAND ACCUSED OF DISPLAYING AN INTEREST

... but by whom?

Labor and the Greens are spitting chips in Senate Estimates over the name of Barnaby Joyce’s accuser being disclosed. A WA woman, Catherine Marriott, has accused him of sexual harassment. To avoid further media scrutiny Barnaby has wisely referred the complaint to the police.


IMMIGRATION PROVES HOW FAR LIBS HAVE LEANT LEFT

Oh, the consistent crescendo of each of Turnbull’s foot soldiers when told to respond to Abbott’s call for a temporary halving of immigration. No deviation from the damning script by any of the front Bench as they denounced Abbott as a Barbaric Philistine of modern day economics. Actually Abbott’s suggestion was quite cultured.



Great to see Outsiders agree



BARNABY 0, MEDIA 1


THERE'S SOMETHING AFOOT AHEAD

I think I’ve been here before… an ex-PM has disinterred himself and is kicking the crap out of adjacent headstones. A deputy PM has been disowned by his WA NAT members and there’s a brand new sexual harassment allegation coming from, guess where? Yeah yeah, WA of course. There is blood and guts in the water and a feeding frenzy is about to erupt.


The spectre of the “stolen generation” is stopping rape reports of Aboriginal kids

It took 48 hours before media disclosed it was an adult Aborigine who raped that two year old girl in Tennant Creek. Naturally most people already thought it may have been, but it shows media's reluctance to risk claims of racism. And in this case a representative of “Territory Families” who received 21 warnings about this group of Aborigines said, "they (the warnings) were not substantial enough to take the child out of this household and away from the mother." Not substantial enough


HOW BARNABY COULD SAVE US FROM THIS PUTRID BILLABONG

The next NATs' Party meeting could set Australia back on track by deciding to reverse what Turnbull tried to do to them. Turnbull made no secret of the fact he was trying to get the NATs to sack Barnaby. Well, that's heresy and guess what, as I have been saying from day one, Barnaby is going nowhere, it’s Turnbull who should be worried.


LEFT SHOWS ITS CARBON COPIES OF BARNABY… and media go AWOL



NEITHER TURNBULL NOR MORRISON COULD GET A STRAY ROOT IN A MILE OF MANGROVES

So why are we listening to their nonsense about forbidden bonking. “You shouldn’t sleep with your staff. It’s a bad practice”, explained Morrison, when feverishly supporting Turnbull’s school teacher comments about stray rooting.



MAL RIPS BARNEY A NEW ONE!

... but how short is his memory?

Hang on a sec. Mal has known of Barnaby’s “shocking, disgraceful, shameful” affair, as he puts it, for 12 months. So what about the bonhomie, best-buddy, backslapping performance of Mal while celebrating Barney’s New England win for the Coalition at Tamworth Leagues Club a few weeks back?
