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.


INDONS IN FOR A SHOCK

As another boat loaded with 80 illegal immigrants arrives on Christmas Island, Indonesia’s Foreign Minister, Marty Natalegawa, says his country won't accept violations of its borders under Abbott’s plan to turn back boats. He warns the move risks damage to bilateral relations. Really Marty?


SETTLED SCIENCE? You'd be surprised

When you think of a scientist do you imagine a little eccentric bloke in a white coat, fuzzy hair, and round glasses? Well, I do and we are all wrong!



ODDS SHORTEN ON SHORTEN...

while Labor stays blind to his bloodied hands

It seems the Parliamentary wing of Labor still hasn’t learnt the lessons of the past and present. Neither has the rank and file. Bill Shorten stands for all that is wrong with Labor and his pious entreaties for party votes ring hollow to those who know the real Bill Shorten.



FOUR BEAUTIFUL GIRLS... ONE UGLY MOTHER

The sordid saga of the four Italian girls simmers and still no-one is winning this awful tug of war. Okay, my involvement with the father, Tomasso Vincenti, was an emotional one as I witnessed his willingness to suffer to see his children.


INDONS WILL TOE THE LINE WITH TONY

If you watched the ABC you would believe Abbott had no hope of stopping the boats. The Left would like you to believe that, but the truth is a long way from it.
