The Pickering Post
Thursday, 13th December 2018

If you would like to be involved or support the upkeep and further development of this site, it would be very welcome no matter how small.

Larry Pickering

Four-time Walkley Award winning political commentator and Churchill Fellow, has returned to the fray over concern that the integrity of news dissemination is continually being threatened by a partisan media.


Word and trivia champ for 2015

Nominations are called for the Word and Trivia champ for 2015, to be announce Friday, December 11. Nominations can be made in either word or trivia sections. (Prize is a T-shirt and framed cartoon of choice delivered free)


What are They Plotting in Poland


I’M OFFENDED JULIA, WHY DIDN’T YOU ASK ME? I do really good portraits

Unlike you Gaz most of us use PP for some light relief. You sound like a very intense unit.

And it wasn't even your comment that was bombed - how do you think I feel? Beyond the fact that I think Larry should be the winner anyway, 'cos he knows all the answers!

This is so exciting! Only one more sleep until the result is announced. (I still think Larry is the winner, and am happy to announce that, if he is too shy to do so. I will of course expect the t-shirt, a framed cartoon of my choice and flowers and chocolates as a little token of appreciation).

I've run out of space. I was named after Josephine who was an early feminist and environmentalist. You can tell I had hippy parents. I was lucky not to be called Flame or Lake.

BlackRoo, What an unkind thing to say to a brave 81 year old man who, I read, has just fought off an intruder (lurking in his garden), and then was run down by the same felon. When I'd registered, and was wondering whether to post, I saw Bruce Whiteside defending another poster on this site, and I thought that very brave of him. And as Michelle Payne says, women can be just as strong as men. So here I go: stoney, what has happened to you? You seem to be picking fight everywhere, and calling people out by other names. Why? You were about the 2nd person I talked to on this site, and I enjoyed our contact. But - ignore me if you wish - this way of engaging with others is not healthy. You seem to be seeing ghosts of posters past. To put you out of your misery, I'm Josephine McCracken, jayceeem

Christ oh bloody mighty Bruce Whiteside, do you EVER give up bringing some old post to light just to TRY to embarrass someone? Go take your meds and get back into bed. You evil old fart! Your posts tell a hell of a lot about your LACK of character.

I was watching the Gold Coast News last night and seen that Bruce Whiteside the one that is Paulene Hanson friend was in a bit of trouble. I think he was robbed. I only got the last of the news item so someone else may be able to shed some light on this subject.

Simmons (word) Mission Chris (trivia)

Missionchris, surely. Maybe Simmons. Haven't kept count.

Vote for Larry he talks more than we do .

Give it to Waldo - you give him everything else. The trophy looks like it was made for waldo.

Why has it got a penis in its mouth?

Rofl - now that is BS. Not that I would know of course

Bless your cotton socks! And goodnight now.

jayceem, no, life is too short I treat every thing as a joke, I have been told not to do so, but I do, and guess what , the people that have told me to take life more seriously are asking for my advice, which I can't give them gotta work it out yourself.

You seem upset Missionchris?

Yes, that assessment had reached me, Missionchris. But this isn't a pity party for the poster who has the least responses to her insights, as with dodo. It is for the sharpest and swiftest knife in the drawer. I believe that is Larry himself.

I had a look through about a dozen word and trivia comps, and it's clear the winner is LARRY PICKERING! Bravo! You probably don't want the t-shirt and framed cartoon of choice, Larry, so I'll be happy to take it off your hands.
