… yet still finished up with Shorten and Turnbull

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.


Compulsory voting may not be democratic (how can someone democratically force you to vote for someone, you ask) but mandatory voting does prevent the Marxists of this world from having an inside run to government. The Marxist Jeremy Corbyn came too close for comfort. 

Julia Gillard’s political architect McTernan (above) was a raging success this time in the UK but will never be successful here. Most young people here can only be attracted to the nearest Centrelink Office.

While the pundits draw comparisons with the UK experience you can safely, and as usual, dismiss them. You see the UK has voluntary voting and we don’t, and that makes all the difference. 

With the exception of Switzerland, almost all nations that have opted for mandatory voting are third world and pretending they are democratic.

Even under Compulsory voting, ten per cent of voters don’t bother turning up (including myself, as I wish to feel independent) and I doubt that millions are prosecuted for not doing so. So what's the big advantage with voluntary voting?

Voluntary voting is all about getting voters off their bums and down to a polling station after you have promised them lots of free stuff. That is still a lot easier than trying to explain ideological differences to swinging voters. Jeremy Corbyn could not have come that close in Australia.

But in the UK it was a simple formula: An increasing number of young people WANT free money. An increasing number of aged people NEED free money, and a diminishing number of middle-income-earning taxpayers need to supply them with it.

So Corbyn only targeted the young and the old with promises of shit loads of free money and completely ignored the middle-income taxpayers. Piece of cake eh! How could that NOT work? It’s the age-old Communist-UN-Islamic "redistribution of income" formula.

Marxism is alive and kicking in our schools and universities and is supported by unions and even supported by many frightened conservative governments.

The trouble is that when you make the middle-income earners pay for all the free money they eventually get the shits and move on. If they can’t move on they find creative ways to avoid extreme taxing. They will always win in that contest because they are up against moronic public servants, Treasury officials and university advisers who have always hated, and have never sought to understand, the concept of free enterprise.

In any fight the private sector always wins while the public sector simply looks at increasing taxes and increasing taxes digs them an even deeper hole.

Has that most undemocratic of all things called compulsory voting actually firewalled us from the likes of Marxists Corbyn, Sanders and the inseparable and dying Shorten/Turnbull duo?

Seems so, because these bastards would need to explain the inexplicable, rather than simply getting lazy pricks off their arses and down to a polling booth. And that takes either a lot of hatred or a lot of fear. Few are that ideological.

Nonetheless, Jeremy Corbyn has used the voluntary voting system to mortally wound Theresa May.

Brexit, the vanguard of a Conservative world-wide rebellion, followed by Trump and now the Paris Accord, will get watered down… and I will bet you the first thing to sate the insatiable Brussels EU will be “freedom of movement”.

Yep, if you thought the noose was starting to tighten around the neck of Islamic immigration. Think again… the amorphous EU and Germany’s Angela Merkel still believe the loss of a few more Brits (and others) under a few more vans driven by demented Muslims following their “good book” with big knives, is a small price to pay for an ideological One World Government overseen by a wealthy and unelected few on the Continent.

                                  Brussels is the  European Union Headquarters

                               Brussels' Grand Mosque, is the ISIS headquarters 

Well at least the EU camped in the right place… Brussels is also the centre of all Islamic terrorism and no-one seems to have noticed.

And Islamic terrorists don’t agree with any type of voting!


Compulsory voting is not democratic ? If its not, then what laws are ?. Voting is compulsory because electoral laws, accepted in all states and territories, make it so. And a load of other laws, accepted in all states and territories make it compulsory to do or not do a truck load of other things, Register your auto, obtain a deiver licence, register your dog, keep to the left while driving, don't belt people up, pay your tax - all laws and no different in principle than the one that has you turn out every so often, along with all your fellow citizens and perform what is nothing more than a civic duty.

This is the perfect opportunity for the homeless to obtain free board and lodgings by them applying to Centrelink for a travel warrant to go to Syria to check out employment opportunities with Islamic State ; That should put a roof over their heads for at least a tenner in the blue stone college of the dark arts at Goulburn Supermaximum motel for those who have a tendency to be dreaming allahu akbar .

If a white Aussie tried this excuse on for not turning up in court, I reckon the Beak would be issuing an arrest notice.

Just another dutch idiot is my guess.

I would upgrade him to first class on the plane just to make sure he left the country

More games - cut the welfare I presume she is living off.....she has no respect for this country or its legal system, or the hard working people who fund her hate filled way through life.


Cheer up chickens: Lovely social photos from Canberra's Mid-Winter Ball on Our very favourite menopausal magpie J Bishop (glittered up like a faded drag queen) with her rent-a-jock David Pantsoff... Miss Lucy, very butch with her live-in country-butcher Malcolm All-bull, and the lovely Chloe Bryce-Parkyn-Shorten (looking just like mummy) with her charismatic hubby and PM-elect Shagger. Barnaby was there with a whip (obviously interested in catching up with J. Lambie).What fun we all missed!

Drag the bitch by the Burka to court. We would get arrested if it were us.

Whew what a missed opportunity to get shot of one muslim. Darn it!!

Her husband is in jail for recruiting jihadis to go to Syria, his other wife is one Carnita Mathews, who has form in regard to their backward religion.

He thought that because there were no bollards driving on the footpath was okay!

Another one and they let him do it. Un - bloody - believable.

O/T was talking to a friend yesterday who works in property development. The company he works for has just been scammed over $300,000. It worked like this. His company obviously deals with all sorts of suppliers. A few months ago they received advise from one of the suppliers stating that their payment details were being updated and if they could please update all records. The advise for this change came on official looking letter head and so the changes were duly made. So months later when an invoice came in for a big job that had been completed it was duly paid using the updated details. The only problem was that the advise to change details had come from fraudsters. Doh. Just shows how easy it is to fall prey to digital thieves.

She only stands up for allah, where the fuck is allah ?

The bail board should be locked up with him

Send them straight to Juantanamo Bay

Yeh, I dont get this. Why stop these arseholes from leaving. Just make sure they cant ever come back. Their views stay the same regardless if they are here or there, so if they want to blow things up let them do it in their own retarded country instead of here.

I will never forget my first time with a woman.

I still have the receipt.

The countries screwed and what do we get, a conservative party run by a socialist lawyer that never really improved much past defending Kerri Packer.
This is the clown who now stands there wanting Australia to become a third world country. Is he for real when he gets up on the pedestal and opens his mouth, he's up there with Rudd and Gillard for the most useless leader this country ever had, even going back to Bill McMahon.
We're all meant to accept this rubbish, he's as conservative as Bernie Sanders, who at least admits his beliefs. This fraud of a Liberal leader needs to resign and abdicate to another country so he can stuff it up.
Leave and leave us alone Malcolm Turnbull you had your wish and got the job, now just piss off and say goodbye, you never were a faithful type.
