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.


Did Bill Shorten swap workers’ benefits for union fees? Yes he did. Did he hide Gillard and Wilson’s theft from his AWU members? Yes he did. Did he try to hide the HSU fraud? Yes he did. Did he have Bob Kernohan bashed? Yes he did. Did he rape a drunk 16 year-old girl? Yes he did. Did he knife two sitting Labor Prime Ministers? Yes he did. Did he... oh, I could go on all day, because this bloke has a rap sheet longer than both the Kray brothers combined.

But Bill is not your average crook, he plans very carefully each and every move, right down to how he was going to rape that young girl after getting her drunk. He knew in advance his girlfriend would not be there that night and had arranged who would be sleeping where. Everything Bill does is meticulously planned.
You only get to see the real Bill Shorten when there’s no camera or mike in sight.
His comrades get their hands dirty while he gets the benefits. He ensured employers were as equally culpable when he shafted his workers, so it’s hard to see the TURC nailing him.
You will not see Commissioner Dyson Heydon recommending charges but today, and maybe tomorrow, you will get glimpses of the type of person Bill Shorten really is... and it’s not pretty.
His rise to the top was styled on his hero, Bob Hawke. He too extricated himself from the filth of the union movement to shower and don an Armani suit and red silk tie, ready for the political rough and tumble of Parliament. But Bill is no Bob... and Bill can never be PM.
Many people unexpectedly took a bullet for this man. Those who suffered, suffered in silence for the sake of their beloved union movement... and Bill knew they would.

He has no old friends, only new ones who can never be real ones.   

No, you wouldn’t want to be in the trenches with this bloke. He will be the last to go over the top and the last to bare his back to the comrades he bayoneted. But, as with all craven crooks who pretend to be soldiers, they eventually fall back into the trench to die with those they killed.

But Bill's death will be slower. He will have time to gaze into the glassy eyes of former comrades like Bob Kernohan.   


please don't destroy Mr Shorten. He is one of the very few good factors to help the unpopular Mr Abbott at the next election. oldcropduster at Tocumwal nsw

Wonder what Swannie and the Pro bono lawyers are being promised for all their support ?

OT Hey Sheeple;
REF: Senate Inquiry about HALAL
As there are only a few days before the "Inquiry" stops receiving submissions,
Have YOU put YOURS IN?
There has been next to no publicity and therefore there will be few people putting in a complaint.
e.g There are only about 400 submissions on their web page out of the whole Australian Population of some 23 million, that’s about 0.00017%.
Not very representative eh?
Perhaps the fact that 9 times out of 10 their web page won’t accept submissions also contributes to this poor response plus the Fear of being Targeted by some Rat-Bag Lone Wolf Extremist should his Identity be exposed.
Indeed, most of the Australian sheeple do not even know about HALAL, what it means or that they are even paying this hidden Tax.
Some "Inquiry" eh?

Hawke was the ultimate shithouse rat and was able to largely bury his horrible past. Shorten in this cyber age was just not able too and all the chickens are coming home to roost.... and not before time...

The current royal commission inquiry will only scratch the surface of major union corruption in Australia. This will happen because big business has been compromised in paying-off these unions over many years for industrial peace. Some of those companies like BHP, Rio Tinto, Leightons, Thiess, Hollands, FMG to name a few will never go to the witness-box and incriminate themselves. Industrial Union corruption is bigger and more powerful than we can imagine. And Shorten is at the top of the pile of a corrupt bunch of union officials and labor party parliamentarians.

Continued. Well resourced and audited. What do you want here Loco and your nodding friend Dante, Riff Raff? Well the Labor party promotes such garbage and let's rubbish into Oz with gay abandon . You guys should wake up and smell the odour.

Loco. The 457 visa stream invites people with skill, genuine skill into our country buddy. The fact is skill shortages are real, very real. The hoops that companies have to jump through are exhaustive and expensive. Firstly, the sponsorship, very costly and imposing on the company, they choose to pay either 1 or 2 percent of their gross payroll in a regulated training fee, no escape its legislated. Therefore if their payroll is say 2 mill they pay either 40 k or 20 k depending on criteria per year. They the have to advertise, market labour test, source ecterera then nominate the position within workplace law, complex, the apply for the visa with strict protocols surrounding academic and past employment credentials with possible assessment hurdles to overcome. Tough system mate.

State owned transport systems are always sheltered workshops. There's no point in training people cine if they shirk for the government.

Tman is DJT, YesMan, need I say more.

Grill Bill!

Not that creepy schoolteacher Alex Gollan who's under investigation for child pornography is it Haddy?

with you on that mate

In my opinion,Tman is an LNP Plant. Parties have them on social media sites to steer the opinions towards the appropriate party or cause. I can smell it a mile away.

Yes, I was just about to mention that preferential treatment.
Anyone who may read this and think I may be a bit over the top with immigration bashing, this is why this is the truth, the place went downhill from these days.

Yes, but by then the Arabs and other imports had gotten in, another stuff by politicians.

Yep like I said a complete failure.
The railways workshops, was the training ground for Australia’s engineers and tradesmen.
Apprenticeships that the private sector wound not or could afford to create became the backbone of Australian industry.
Any smartarse prick can cut back and save money and look good in the short term true patriot politicians look to the long term and that tends not to be wogs who parents have just lobed in from Hungry because no one else would have them.

Totally divorced from reality this country. When you have to toss up having your car fixed or some much needed clothing, not to mention food, THEN you know what hard times are like.

Nick Greiner, created ICAC but apart from that another failure of Australia’s post war immigration.

O/T Get submissions in to HALAL cert.([email protected]) There are only 440 in out of 23 million Australians. and the last one posted on their website was from a week ago. I hate to think they are editing their submissions and leaving some off. I sent mine in and I'm going to email it to Bernardi, Lambie and the 2 LNP on the panel as well as Xenaphon to make sure it gets there. So Please send them in quickly as no-one I know knows about it.
