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.


North of the Sunny Coast they think Pauline Hanson will be PM. Further north of there they are convinced she will be a ten-term President. But of course she cannot even be PM for a single day. The problem in North Queensland is that they suffer from heat stroke, too many stubbies, and they don’t understand the new voting system. What they are really saying is that they hate the two majors.

The LNP and Labor are disowning One Nation, as both majors always do, but one of them will gain government with One Nation as a junior partner, and that’s unlikely to be Labor who will again be aligning with the Greens and GetUp, despite Adani.

But Labor does have a secret weapon called Tim Nicholls. Premier Pluckachook, who seems ashamed of her Belarusian/Polish surname and has opted for a ridiculous quasi French interpretation of Palaszczuk... pronounced properly as Palatzook, and not "shay".

No-one should be ashamed of their surname.

It is an election between two Parties led by two of the most trivial simpletons in Queensland's history. But for half a century Queensland has been famous for its lack of leaders.

Pluckachook has shown her faded colours and wit by declaring she has no idea of the GST rate or the deficit. Nicholls is equally politically agnostic with a well-practised, artificial, silly grin that switches on and off while annoying the crap out of everyone. 

His team, if that’s the word, has proven to be failures with Springborg, Langbroek and Seeney still seething over the disastrous Campbell Newman experiment.

I know these people and if ever a ruling Party needs the brake of a Senate it's both of these. Draining the Queensland swamp and its corrupt judicial arm makes Trump's job in DC look like a cinch.  

Yep, the LNP was (and still is) so lacking in talent that it had to draft a diminutive ex-army bloke from the Mayor’s Office as Leader, when he wasn’t even a member of Parliament!

                                               Labor's Dick exposed! 

Cameron Dick got his $16.5 Health Budget figures so wrong his kids' shuttlecock club banned him from holding the treasurer's position.

This snap election will come down to a choice between two Parties who are both better suited in opposition with the electorate confined to choosing its own method of execution. 

For Pluckachook to win it will take Pauline Hanson to be caught in the cot with Gautem Adani and his missus. For the LNP to win it will take Julia Gillard and Graham Richardson to join Labor’s campaign as an item. 

The grandstanding Katter, who now claims to be the sixth most powerful person in Australia, is of no consequence and is content to play with his donger while FNQ burns.

As a concerned Queenslander I suggest lethal injection is probably the most painless method.  


Since moving to Surfers Paradise 20 years ago I have never witnessed the lack,scarcity of Police Officers in and about our town let alone the complete absence of Water Police on our Main River waterways. The election cannot come quick enough.

Dont you ''love it'' how they alway bring up the hollow hoax with Anastasia Palletshed to get sympathy, now its Frydaburger ,oooooooow their parents escaped the holocaust ,dont pick on them ooow they had it so hard from those awful nazis !!!!!!!!!! never ending victim hood !!!!

You know stuff-all about it 7.62.

Yep, my bet is that andrew blunt has an ISIS flag tablecloth!

Get Up funded by Soros. Get real folks. They are the useful idiots of the hardcore marxists. Our politicians are letting us down. Get rid of teacher unions and resist the enforced so called innoculations of our you healthy kids. Both my daughters suffer from the after effects of Gardasil. Gardasil is a scam like many innoculations. Just do your homework if you care for your daughters....

When Poms used to come out from their mother country they'd have to endure anything up to 13 inoculations to cover them from Australian diseases and if we travelled to other countries we would be covered for everything that could await us but nowadays there isn't any disease prevention for all those who travel overseas who then bring back a disease that can't be treated because our medical professionals have sold us out to Big Pharma who paid them into believing they have the cure all pill that they are now finding don't work and people are dying from contact made with these people who have migrated from diseased countries foreign to us . .

New post up.

Apparently we, the generous Australian taxpayer, ponied up $100,000 for legal fees for the drug runner in Colombia. Cassie Sainsbury.

why? Will it be treated as repayable or is this just a write off?

Stick petty cash?

AUSTRALIANS have laughed in the face of Donald Trump’s vow to “get rid” of the green card lottery, taking to social media to say they don’t want to move to his United States anyway.
More than 20,000 Aussies enter the lottery to get a US visa each year, with almost 2000 winning a green card.
But after the US President said he would axe the green card that gives foreigners legal entry to the country in the wake of yesterday’s New York terror attack, many Australians said they just didn’t care.
“Wouldn’t want to live and work in the US anyway,” wrote Giulio Di Placido on Facebook. “The country is in massive decline. Thousands of homeless everywhere and nowhere near the same perks we receive in Australia.
“And that’s even without discussing safety / gun violence.
“A great place for a holiday but that’s it for me.
“The American Dream sadly died a long time ago.”
Nic Lucas echoed his thoughts, commenting: “Who would want to move to the US anyway?! If the shooters dont [sic] get you someone else will!”
Kevin Crouch was succinct: “Lol US Green Card win if you lose!”

Twitter user @rorybaust said he would not want to move to Trump’s America either, posting: “As stupid as he is, he has an angry mob cheering him on the reality is if the USA doesn’t want you why would you want her.”
And Scott Rhodie added: “Agree. I won’t be applying for that lottery!”
Former green card winner Mikka Januszek said it was “no big loss”, adding: “I won it several years ago and ended up moving back to Sydney because frankly employment conditions in the US suck.”
Australian Phillip Prideaux said he was living in the US on a green card but was ready to leave. “This lunatic scares me s***less,” he tweeted. “I am out of here as soon as I can extricate myself.”
For some, this looks like exactly what Australia deserves with the President saying he wanted to introduce a merit-based immigration system just like ours.
American Sylvia Coutras said it was time the US started “mirroring” Australia’s strict immigration laws. “Australian immigration laws/ no diversity visa programs, they laugh at the green card lottery & free citizenship,” she tweeted. “Time to start mirroring.”

It's so sad what's become of us, the people of the West. Our white ancestors were titans in history who created the most dazzling civilization ever known, but their descendants have become self-loathing morons.

Has this ever happened in history before? Was it because the flower of our manhood was wiped out in the two great fratricidal wars of the 20th century?

I ask myself why, and sadly see the answer everywhere: political correctness aka cultural marxism. In short, the brainwashing we older posters used to deride in the old USSR and Mao's China is rampant in Australia.

For example, I read today that a schoolgirl refused to accept an award sponsored annually by a local pollie because he voted No to 'marriage equality'. In being so rude she has indulged in repulsive virtue-signaling.

The shit continues to hit the fan:

NSW Liberal MP Craig Laundy has defended his engagement with activist group GetUp!, saying it never helped him with a single campaign worker, dollar or how-to-vote card.

Mr Laundy, who has come under scrutiny after GetUp! confirmed it “ran dead” in his Reid electorate, argued his dealings with the group involved making representations on behalf of ­asylum-seekers brought to his ­attention by GetUp! members.

He said his past as a publican and his “faith” meant he would lobby on behalf of anyone, no ­matter what background.

The defence comes as speculation mounted over whether Liberal Party operatives acted behind the scenes to prevent moderate MPs from being targeted by GetUp! at last year’s election.

The office of senior government minister Christopher Pyne yesterday issued a statement denying he was involved in any talks with GetUp!. “The minister hasn’t spoken to GetUp! since 2009,” a spokesman for Mr Pyne said. “The allegations re the 2016 election are completely false.”

Mr Laundy, the Assistant Industry Minister, yesterday said GetUp! workers were in force in Reid in 2013 and last year and were handing out policy flyers, most of which were at odds with the government.

O/T Palletchook interviewed by Paul Murray Live. She claims to have created 122,000 jobs. Yeah, but they are all in the Public service. FFS.

In the last few days we ..yes us Ozzies have been celebrating an event that happened in WW1 ...1919 at the latest.. why the fuck is everyone getting uppity about a country that didn't exist till 1948 ?????

Good Bolt editorial tonight.

Australia's consumer watchdog will hold a public inquiry into the standard of the National Broadband Network's wholesale service after a dramatic rise in the number of customer complaints.

ACCC chairman Rod Sims said there were issues with how quickly customers were activated, how promptly faults were fixed and how dispute resolution was handled, including compensation for customers.

"They're issues that up until now have been left to commercial negotiation between the NBN and its wholesale customers — Telstra, Optus etc," he told The World Today.

"We've now formed the view that that's not working appropriately."

... this ought to be a massive shitfight, unless the NBN and ISPs suddenly change their ways in the meantime.

(Reuters) - The rollout of a tax-cut plan being promoted by U.S. President Donald Trump and senior congressional Republicans was delayed on Wednesday as groups of lawmakers and special interests dug in on key provisions, insisting on changes.

Seeds Of America's Collapse

Is Tigerbalm another Kym clone from the Wankeratta Institute? Sure sounds like one.


“A serial child sex offender who sees himself as "a hero saving children" has lost his bid to be released from his indefinite jail order, with a South Australian judge saying he remained a "deeply disturbed" man.

Convicted paedophile Mark Trevor Marshall, 48, has a lengthy history of sex offences against young children dating back to the 1980s.

He was jailed indefinitely in 2009 after being declared unwilling or unable to control his sexual urges.

Only 12 months after the indefinite jail order had been made Marshall lodged his first application for release, and the Supreme Court made an order granting his release in 2011, subject to accommodation being found and approved by the Parole Board.

Before that could happen the Director of Public Prosecutions sought reconsideration of the order and Marshall underwent extensive treatment in prison.

The following year, in 2012, the court again allowed his application subject to suitable accommodation, which could not be found so Marshall remained in custody.”
