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.


 As predicted here, Bill Shorten will quickly try to turn the Dastyari scandal into a debate on foreign donations. Okay let’s a have a debate on that, but it has nought to do with the treason of Dastyari. This is about Mr Bean enriching himself with Chinese funds in exchange for falsely and publicly misstating Australia’s and the ALP’s policy position on China’s expansion into the south China Sea... and that’s more about the capital offence of treason than it is about donations.

People who know Mr Bean say he is a tight arsed little prick who wouldn’t give you the time of day if he had a hundred watches. Some less endearing descriptions include that, “he wouldn’t shout if a shark bit him” and that, “he would lock his Grandma in the shit house and collect her pension”.

Next to Shorten, he certainly takes the prize for being the most disliked wanker in Parliament. And neither have attempted to answer the question of why. Why did he think it was okay to send an account for his personal spending to a Chinese company? And in exchange for what?

“Look, I made a mistake”, is as far as we have got so far.

All ALP Members received texts yesterday morning suggesting the required response to the Press hacks was, “Sam made a mistake, he admitted it, he has paid a high price, now let’s get on with some talk about donations legislation”, ‘cos that will embroil the Libs and they will run a mile.

The trouble with Shorten’s proposed legislation is that it neatly circumvents union donations as coming from “Not For Profit” entities that are already excused from paying any tax.

Not for profit!..WTF? Billions in illicit funds squeezed from unsuspecting workers have made rich men and women of those sitting in jail, those on their way to jail and those who should already be sitting in jail.

The profit motive is well and truly alive and well within the mossy grey walls of Daniel Andrews’ Trades Hall.

So the draft of Shorten’s proposed legislation will be just an obfuscation of the real and serious problem of accepting personal donations from foreign companies to Parliamentarians on both sides of the House and Senate, and in exchange for what? Something!... that’s for sure.

And it has been going on for yonks with both sides afraid to open the stinking can of worms.

The shocked look on Mr Bean’s face indicated clearly that he thought it was a normal part of governance in Australia.

Well, It is! But it shouldn’t be. It may be the accepted norm in Islamic and third world countries but it carries a stiff jail sentence here, and in time of war a death sentence.

So it’s best to re-locate the ridiculous Darwin Aboriginal RC to here, ignore Shorten’s diversion of “donations” and hear evidence of the many acts of MPs’ “treason”.

But don’t hold your breath.


All of the troll's posts have vanished. Has she deleted them so that any outsider (ie, the police?) having a look won't see them? cynical me. or has Larry booted her? if Larry you have done that, then many thanks. We need and want peace here. I, at least, am so grateful if that's the case.

MP Doug Cameron on Q & A saying Slippery Sam didn't do any wrong and he mentioned something in the back ground we know not of ..........

and so do you too my friend. It's a rarity in this world to find honest people anymore. You're one of the rare ones. Cheers.

For some people insults are a must
They do it with oodles of zeal and lust
They cannot debate the issue on hand
With more personal attacks than grains of sand
Leaving us reeling with disgust.

Which reminds me, I haven't seen Flysa he MIA? does anyone know?

So Concerning Senior, where's the link that you reckon I took without acknowledging it? Can't produce it??? So you don't just find your ideas where the sun don't shine: you're a BIG FAT LIAR as well. I'll throw in tosser too. Provide the link or fuck off. I thought you were talking about the comments I've made on this thread of Stoneys. Cape Capricorn? What the tuck are you talking about ?!?!?!?! The posters here know I don't cheat.

I wonder if our Donna can come up with anything half as amusing or dare I say prophetic.

There is a troll called Donna
Who knows not the meaning of honour
She comes from the gutta
She is truly a nutter
And hopefully soon is a goner.

So you gonna fake it till you make it Donna. I'm afraid it won't work. Too many fine upstanding people you have abused slandered and threatened. You keep trying though.

Daffyd, you have to be joking mate. The spreading of all this bullshit IS HIS LIFE, without it he just goes back to being the loser, know nothing, retired legal graffiti artist.

Bruce you say " As it happens I was the only identifiable author in the book that Joseph Wayne-Smith and George Merritt put together. " A perfect example of your narcissistic egotistic personality, grabbing the limelight to glorify yourself. The old ME, ME, ME, syndrome for which you have become so infamous. .

I apologised, you silly old fool for my mistake. Now I want you to apologise for saying "theft" and "plagiarism" because she didn't use your speech... Unlike you I do not seek the limelight, therefore I remain anonymous and do what I can to support Pauline and One Nation. Neither my ex nor Paulie have kicked me out of their lives, in all modesty I believe both would speak highly of me, diametrically the opposite of how Pauline or your ex would speak of you., both of whom would be happy to never hear of or see you again.

I read your posts to Ettridge. He says there is no point in attempting to respond to them when your ageing memory and recall has you writing posts that are just convenient fabrication. He asked me to wish you well in your old age and he hopes you can let go of all of this for your better health....

Stoney..yep..dreyfus, Danby, Turnbull, Zimmerman, etc etc..

What a surprise. I'll make sure the police get the complete thread.

Enjoy it m'friend :-)

Thanks Lights. I was just a mere human. Made some mistake along the way. Was quick to set the record straight when I did. I enjoyed my career and collected a few gongs and accolades along the way. However I am glad to be out of it now. Front line policing can take a toll on your health so I retired before that happened. Have a great day - I am off the footy. :)

Stoney surely you're not expecting a response from BK. He's the Messiah, he just breathes and delivers sermons. He hates being cornered and it makes me wonder why he places himself in such positions when he lies.

I might add, AK, that I came here to have an enjoyable social outlet with like-minded people, interested in politics/world events etc. Minus trolls, it's been a mostly wonderful interaction, often more lively than I ever anticipated ! I'm somewhat isolated because of pretty significant health issues, so through all this bullying/abuse crap, I've ruggedly held on, determined not to lose my involvement with the good people here, although I've felt like it at times. But something in my character won't give in to a bully, as that's what it wants - to hurt and destroy and take away others' pleasures. I resent the time these responses to her take. But she's abused me for the better part of a year, & caused me a hell of a lot of stress that my heart etc., could do without.

I APOLOGISE, I misread what you had posted. Of course it was YOUR SPEECH that you were selling for $5. I APOLOGISE, I should have realised that to a narcissistic egotist YOUR SPEECH was far more important than Pauline's Maiden Speech. Now n apology from you as I stated " Did you pay Pauline a "royalty" for using her speech to raise money which you now claim as your donation to the PHSM?" not your speech which you now claim was "theft' and "wholesale plagiarism".
