RUDD UNAWARE OF A NEST OF WHITE ANTS

The Fairfax pro-Julia juggernaut has already started to leak the more nefarious of Kevin Rudd’s personality weaknesses. And there are plenty yet to be disclosed.


IMMIGRATION INTAKE IN TATTERS... thanks to our Kev

One had an expensive watch (it may have been a copy) another was speaking fluent English. None seemed underfed and two were definitely overfed. Persecuted refugees? I couldn’t see how that could be true. These blokes were Iranian.


RUDD HAS MORE THAN ABBOTT TO WORRY ABOUT

Only the Labor Party, it seems, would consider replacing a hopeless leader like Rudd with a hopeless leader like Julia and, in desperation, then replace a hopeless leader like Julia with the original hopeless leader, Rudd. Crumbs!



A VILE PIECE OF TRASH CALLED SUMMERS

I received a call from the Brisbane Courier mail, “Larry Pickering? Anne Summers says people like you are responsible for Jill Meagher’s rape and murder, do you have a reply to that?” They couldn’t print my reply.


A VERY SHORT HONEYMOON FOR KEV

I was wrong when I said that even the union factions wouldn’t be stupid enough to install Kev again! But they were stupid enough, and we watched it all unfold. The AWU’s Bill Shorten, (Big Bill Ludwig’s apprentice) held enough faction votes in his hot little hand to ensure Rudd got the nod.



IT MIGHT AS WELL RAIN UNTIL SEPTEMBER

If you want to know what’s happening in Canberra, get to know the Comcar drivers. In my time in the fishbowl I found they were the best source of intel, both juicy and substantial.


GILLARD CAN CHOOSE HER OWN POISON

First she needs to accept her salad days of socialism are over, terminally banished to supersede Whitlam in shameful pages of school history books. Julia could readily choose a number of humane methods for her demise:


'THE AGE' PROVES WHAT WE ALL KNEW...

it's just another Left wing Fairfax rag

Any doubt as to where ‘The Age’ places itself in the political spectrum is lost in its blind and embittered editorial this morning: A tearful entreaty for Gillard to stand down so that Abbott may not take the reins of Government.



NOT 'THE AUSTRALIAN', SURELY!

“Shorten left out of the Gillard loop”, screamed ‘The Australian’ this morning. “Hmmm”, I thought, “Gillard’s loop? What the hell would Shorten be doing in Gillard’s loop anyway?” He’s an ambitious little loner with a blue tie!


JULIA OFF TO JAKARTA... but maybe as a tourist

Is Julia’s heart breaking for the thousands drowned or is her neck breaking to discredit Abbott’s plans to stop the boats? The latter is the obvious but Julia will not be welcome in Indonesia and she may not even be PM.



RUDD DOES HAVE THE NUMBERS... but they're no good to him

I recall writing two years ago (regarding Gillard’s tenure in Office) that I will pour a glass of good red, roll a smoke and sit back and watch the mayhem, because Gillard will be impossible to get rid of...well, I’ve rolled another smoke, topped up my red and she is still here.


AN IRRELEVANT REFERENDUM

A Bill for a referendum on Constitutional recognition of councils could have passed had it not been for Abbott’s belated reticence. What was he thinking?
