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.


The appalling circumstances that the families of the Bali two were forced to endure... the failure of the Indonesian Government to inform Australia that the executions had taken place, Joko Widodo leaving his phone off the hook and his crass insensitivity to international entreaties.

In response to requests for clemency Widodo said, “I will say this firmly: No-one may intervene with the executions because it is our sovereign right to exercise our laws”.

Early this morning, each of the condemned was taken alone from the Execution Island jail to one of the many wooded areas of the island, a place out of public view but where the gunshots would certainly be heard by those remaining back in the jail waiting their turn to be shot.

The shots were also reported heard on adjacent islands.

The condemned had the choice of sitting, kneeling or standing, tied to a pole, and whether to have a blindfold or not. It’s not yet known what the Bali two chose.

Each condemned was accompanied by a firing squad of twelve. Nine of their guns were loaded with blanks, only three held live ammunition.

The rich equatorial foliage for the last time smelled somehow more potent, more luxuriant than before. If only the condemned could ask for a little more time to breathe it in... but the soldiers had already raised their rifles and, on command, fired from 20 feet away at a stick-on label identifying roughly the position of a heart.

It was like being hit with three bulldozers, suddenly there was an awareness of what it’s like to face a firing squad for the first and last time.

The condemned slumped forward, twitching, with no more than three or four minutes of painful life remaining. The pain slowly gives way to an enveloping greyness, then nothing.

The bloodied body is then placed on a stretcher and carried back to the jail where another of the prisoners, silently waiting their turn, is taken to the woods.

This is certainly a well-practised Islamic approach to tenuous life but is it a civilised approach to the sanctity of life? Macho posters who say, “Good riddance to the drug pushing bastards” might have trouble pulling the trigger themselves.

But this stain on the human spirit belongs in the dark ages and it has nothing to do with drug pushers, or even murderers, paedophiles or thieves! It’s about life and those who deign to claim the right to maintain it or remotely snuff it out.

That’s one hell of a mantle to don, unless you are guided by the hand of an infallible deity... as Muslims believe they are.


Zuluboy the fuss is all about the fact the judicial system was corrupted and were they given a fair trial. Why did they have to be killed? Life behind bars is very severe punishment. Take a look at our own corrupt masonic judicial system mate you could be the next who gets done over by it!

Give it a break Larry. Good riddance to those two Australian drug smugglers. They got what they deserved. What is the fuss all about? Is it about the death penalty?
I don’t remember there being the same outrage and indignation in Australia when the Bali bombers were executed. Double standards don’t you think?
Have you any idea the damage drugs do to families and lives?
I do, that’s why I say; “Well done the Indos”. Now looking forward to my next holiday in Bali.

I am not sure whether Australia has the right to condemn nations for killing convicted criminals when Australia itself provided the finances to kill 90,000 innocent pre-born babies last year.... just saying....

This whole thing seems to have degenerated to religion bashing thing. It isn't the religion that has executed this pair of DRUG smugglers,, it was their courts and their justice system!!!!!!!!

who cares one iota about the death of this pair. They deserved it, they earned it they got it. End of story

Hope you are right seadogger, this tacit acceptance of the blatant Communist and Muslim promotion based upon lies by the MSM and the seditious ABC has gone on for far too long.

What an insidious, incestuous little group of breeders the ABC low life wankers are? And whom is it at Channel 10 that appears so intent on destroying free to air TV in this country and destroying share values that they so readily conform to the Communist Mantra.

Thanks for the heads up guys, as I would not know one from the other.

Olbe, here's Rimmington's problem.
"Riminton was later married to Kumi Taguchi, presenter and producer for ABC News 24"

Channel 10 news is now ABC-light, they have inherited the Bollinger-Socialist left news editors and programmers cut from the ABC and SBS, with the news reader Hugh Rimmington an ex-Canberra press-gallery leftist hack leading the way with his bias slant on the news of the day.

She (SH-Y) has also called for a national day of remembrance including an annual public-holiday with a memorial to be built with public-money at their old heroin selling ground of Kings-Cross. " sorry only-kidding"!!!!!

"[The] Vote By The FCC To Regulate The Internet... Is Further Proof That The Obama Administration Will Stop At Nothing In Their Efforts To Control The Internet." –Rep. Marsha Blackburn
UPDATE: The implementation of Barack Obama's takeover of the Internet is less than 45 days away. And as Marsha Blackburn says, if Congress does not take action to stop Barack Obama, the government will "control the Internet" in a little over the month.

Make no mistake, the Internet as you know it will never be the same if we let Barack Obama implement this takeover. You'll pay more for less service and the government will use this draconian ruling as a club to bludgeon Internet freedom, including ultimately your free speech.

And if you think we exaggerate, consider what Blackburn says on the matter: "Once the federal government establishes a foothold into managing how Internet service providers run their networks they will essentially be deciding which content goes first, second, third, OR NOT AT ALL." [Emphasis Ours]

Time is short and Blackburn's Internet Freedom Act is still stalled in committee as Republicans bicker behind closed doors over whether or not they should fight Barack Obama or pretend to "compromise" with Barack Obama and essentially give him everything he wants.


Come off it, Larry, the so-called 'boys' were 34 and 31 and the principals in a drug ring. They were sentenced to death when Joko was just getting going as Mayor of Surakata. The idea that he is some crazed Islamist bent on killing our boys is ridiculous. The implentation of the sentence was delayed by drawn-out appeals but it was always inevitable.

Land of Hope and Glory

Land of Hope and Glory, Mother of the Free,
How shall we extol thee, who are born of thee?
Wider still, and wider, shall thy bounds be set;
God, who made thee mighty, make thee mightier yet!

Truth and Right and Freedom, each a holy gem,
Stars of solemn brightness, weave thy diadem.

Tho' thy way be darkened, still in splendour drest,
As the star that trembles o'er the liquid West.

Throned amid the billows, throned inviolate,
Thou hast reigned victorious, thou has smiled at fate.

Land of Hope and Glory, fortress of the Free,
How may we extol thee, praise thee, honour thee?

Hark, a mighty nation maketh glad reply;
Lo, our lips are thankful, lo, our hearts are high!

Hearts in hope uplifted, loyal lips that sing;
Strong in faith and freedom, we have crowned our King!

Trouble is Disraeli the brain dead left of the western world believe it too. They are the real problem with their traitorous behaviour towards the people who give them the very freedom that allows them to preach their hatred. How the fuck they can't see that they are leading us towards another world war is totally incomprehensible to me.

And we allow these people into our country, to live among us and expect them to behave in a civilized manner! Fools.

"The Ayatollah Khomeini, who married a 12-year-old girl, even gave his consent to using infants for sexual pleasure (although warning against full penetration until the baby is a few years older). In April, 2010, a 13-year-old Yemeni girl died from injuries suffered to her womb during "intercourse".

Some clerics show relative mercy on underage girls by advocating a process known as "thighing" (also known as child molestation in the West). According to a recent fatwa (number 23672), an imam answers this question: "My parents married me to a young girl who hasn't yet reached puberty. How can I enjoy her sexually?" by telling the 'man' that he may "hug her, kiss her, and ejaculate between her legs."

"Muhammad was married to thirteen women, including eleven at one time. He relegated them to either consecutive days or (according to some accounts) all in one night. He had sex with a 9-year-old girl and married his adopted son's wife (after arranging a quick divorce). On top of that, Muhammad had a multitude of slave girls and concubines with whom he had sex - sometimes on the very days in which they had watched their husbands and fathers die at the hands of his army.

So, by any realistic measure, the creator of the world's most sexually restrictive religion was also one of the most sexually indulgent characters in history."

U.S forces watching Iraqi villages at night have recorded several instances of men having sex with donkeys. It's really amazing that muslims make such a big deal about covering women and the segregation of males and females. All they have achieved is to create sex crazed perverts who love shagging animals and boys.

Do you think for one second that the lass herself isn't into " recreational drug use"?
