FAIRFAX IN BED WITH LABOR... and without a condom

When did Fairfax lose its virginity to Labor? Some time back I guess and I didn’t realise it until I walked into the newsroom after Whitlam’s sacking and found everyone in tears chucking typewriters.



A SUCCULENT SINO SUCCESS?

There is no doubt the PM’s emulation of Whitlam’s long march to China will be a poll reviving success. The Coalition’s historic approach to communist China has always been by a slow boat.


CONROY'S NBN A DRUNKEN THOUGHT BUBBLE

When you think of something terrific to do when you’re pissed, don’t pretend it’s just as terrific when you’re sober.


SHOULD ROLF HARRIS BE NAMED?

Rolf Harris is a strange man who spent time at my home but it was inconceivable that he could ever be arrested and bailed on child sex matters. Rolf was firmly embedded in the category of cuddly koala bears and kangaroos but rumours of a nasty pastime had been festering for decades


PROPPING UP A FAILING INDUSTRY

In a regional centre in the Soviet Union in the 1950s a manufacturer of glass tumblers had a small problem. The glass tumblers were of excellent quality and the company had successfully traded for over a century.


GILLARD ADVISES CHINA TO PRESSURE N. KOREA?

President Xi Jinping was clearly overjoyed to be receiving foreign policy advice from Ms Gillard. He appeared really disappointed that our Ms Gillard could only afford a half hour with him but he lightened up when told that’s more than the average time Julia spends with blokes.


THOSE WHO ASPIRE TO LEAD US

Don’t for a minute think that criminality in its worst forms is confined to Labor, but the Party of the workers sure leads the way and it’s usually at the expense of the very workers they presume to protect.


WHEN SOCIAL MEDIA IS A SOCIAL DISEASE

In the wake of an outrageous attempt to gag the Press, McTernan has arranged through the PM’s office to close Twitter accounts critical of Gillard and censor messages. This was achieved with the cooperation of Twitter’s roving publicist, Mike Brown.


THE GOOD OL' BOYS AREN'T GONE... they are regrouping for an assault on Gillard

Except for the destruction of the Labor Party, with the help of her Marxist comrades, it is difficult to find anything Gillard has done well.



SPEAKING OF EASTER...

Christianity is a symbol of goodness, religion is a symbol of evil and is un-Christian in its indecent, competitive pursuit of self. But you need neither to follow a path of goodness because, for some reason, we were all born with an innate sense of what is good, fair, right and wrong.


"THE LABOR PARTY I LOVE" by Julia Gillard

Actually the Labor Party Julia “loves” is the same party she vowed to infiltrate for the sole purpose of imposing the Communist agenda of her Socialist Forum. Those who do love the Labor Party are those Gillard has systematically killed off. Well done Julia!


MCTERNAN IS GILLARD’S MAN... in more ways than one

The bitter back bench leaks have started already and the rumour is, from more than one quarter, that our lovely Julia has a new partner.


PREPARE FOR SOME DIZZYING SPIN FROM THE CONSUMMATE SPINSTER

Without a responsible Senate to reject supply this Government will load Abbott up with debt requiring austerity measures that will give him voter backlash. “If I can’t win, at least I can make life hell for you”, seems to be Gillard’s thinking. Except it’s not hell for Abbott, it’s hell for us.



GILLARD STILL NOT SAFE

“Keep your friends close and your enemies closer” is a maxim Ms Gillard has ignored. She has ruthlessly dealt with challengers and they are now plotting to rescue their Labor Party. The Labor Party she has trashed.



MORE DEATHS ON MORE BOATS

This question is constantly asked of Labor: “Why do these boats keep coming in greater numbers?” The answer given is: “Seas have been calmer in the last fortnight.”
