Try spearing eels in a bathtub with a broom handle with the light off and you'll find it's even harder to nail Dastyari and Shorten. There is nothing more slippery than a Labor politician in the shit, yet somehow Shorten has managed to project himself as a responsible leader in disciplining a little Iranian rat while the little Iranian rat complains that his kids are suffering. Crumbs!
In any other Western country this little Iranian rat would be sitting in a military jail awaiting charges of treason and a firing squad. How can any government allow a Parliamentarian of any colour to sit in Parliament while operating on a foreign payroll?
Grabbing a bum was very much like a high five (fifty years ago). Laying a PC stencil over what was accepted fifty years ago doesn’t give a fair indication of acceptability now. Invading someone’s personal space still needed communal consent but, unless you were bitter enemies, that consent was usually a given… and if it wasn’t you soon found out and desisted. Don Burke and Rolf Harris were (are) in a very different category.
Pauline’s choice of Peter Slipper’s little wet oyster mate as adviser has ensured One Nation’s dismal loss and that the LNP is not able to join in government with them. In the process One Nation has handed banana benders another term of two hard-to-like Labor females going absolutely nowhere except backwards.
The belief that only bogan fools vote Labor or Green gains credence when you notice those who leave university with a law or medical degree. GPs and solicitors are among the dumbest people I have known and they all have dutifully joined Labor or the Greens. Is it any wonder Whitlam and his successors all wanted free university education.
I voted no. Not because I reckoned homosexuals shouldn't get married, they should be able to, but because we were being conned, and this dodgy High Court let it happen when they okayed a vote they cunningly called a “survey”.
She has wheat dust in her veins, red dust in her hair, calluses on her palms, and a Mallee root for a heart. I have made no secret of my political admiration for her. She is the one person who could not only win any Liberal seat but would unseat the disastrous Turnbull as Leader in a heartbeat, and do it with a long-term success that is rarely seen in the Liberal Party. But she should not contest Bennelong as it would appear to be a “me too” move.
A very hard working lady friend of mine cleans hotel rooms for a living and had asked to excuse herself from cleaning rooms that had been occupied by male homosexuals. The hotel had acceded to her request as the rooms were unbearably disgusting. Fecal matter was strewn from the bath tub to chairs and walls and the bedding was discarded rather than washed.
As suggested here on October 13, if the High Court takes a literal meaning of Sec 44 in its entirety it will be courting chaos. And wow, it sure is.
