... in fact, he is well on the outer!

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 Australian’ reported this morning that former Liberal Party deputy leader, Neil Brown QC, and The Australian’s columnist, Janet Albrechtsen, have been appointed to the, "Independent Nominations Panel" overseeing Board positions at the ABC and SBS.

It was also reported that, “The Communications Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, had no say in either appointment and was only recently informed. Brown and Albrechtsen were picked for their roles at the highest levels of the Abbott Government.”

This has been brewing for a while now and Libs “at the highest level” have been quietly ropable at ABC bias. 

The ABC Board should be chucked out on its ear, holus bolus, but excessively overpaid underlings will cling to their valuable contracts, so don’t expect the sweet smell of impartiality any time soon.

More interesting is that Communications Minister, Malcolm Turnbull, has been bypassed in the Government’s decision-making regarding the ABC. Wow!!... Now that’s a real kick in the teeth for Malcolm and a real kick up the bum for the way he has supported the ABC in its Abbott onslaught.

The ABC has been an unabashed sheltered workshop for the ALP, and all things Left for too long, but now it's in the Government’s crosshairs, Malcolm would be well advised to duck.

From a previous post:


Malcolm Turnbull was brutally savaged and finished off as Liberal leader by the Godwin Grech setup from Labor with HUGE assistance from the ABC and msm for the twisting of the knife through destroying his public image.
NOW, the ABC and msm are using him to undermine a conservative government by presenting and recreating his image as being a great bloke, clear and concise, a possible leader...
Malcolm, you may be excellent at understanding the communications portfolio but you don't get the viciousness of the left leaning media. You were sucked in and spat out before and they are setting you up to do it again. The leftist media will always hate conservatives and for them, you are just useless Malcolm Tits on a BULL.
So you may as well, get them before they get you......or get out.

MT resigns ( before he is booted ) from the LNP and joins the PUP.
Clive picked Mal up in one of his exotic cars and took him out for another BIG lunch.
Clive offered Mal the PUP deputy Leadership with a lot of $$$$$trings attached.

Mal realised he is ‘ dead man walking in the LNP’ and did not want to be a self funding Independent.
Obviously Mal likes the idea of being the spokes-person for the PUP, who will have major controls in the Senate and maybe in the states after the next elections.

Mal reckons Clive will soon be a goner with his health and his wealth
and Mal can ascend to the PUP Leadership.

Mal reckons it is ‘to good an opportunity to miss’ being able to control the Aust Fed

What am I missing? I didn't know that MT had even been 'in the middle'. He stared off taking guard between Middle and leg and now he takes up a batting position at short backward square leg. Tries to confuse everyone by telling them he's fielding at silly point.

I read somewhere that the ABC Shops are not doing that well. Hardly surprising, their goods are somewhat over-priced. A couple of months back they had a Monty Python DVD I was interested in for $60 . Went a few shops down to JB Hi Fi and bought it for $17.

The minor party know it all female ex Army wannabe, We won’t be needing you, you can’t call a Tony Abbott a psychopath.

Bruce why would she remind you of Irma Grese? My goodness I just read up on her. I feel sick now.

Tests were made and they ( whoever that is ) say non of those shades where actually human skin.
They made soap though that is a fact. What a shocker!

The lady between Turnbull and Scott is a good looker, who is she ?

Old Mal should just jump ship and team-up with the Labor Party, Goldman-Sachs really doesn't care who's side his on, just as long he can get his hands on the countries monetary decision making.

A little boy about 12 years old is walking down the street dragging a flattened frog on a string behind him. He came up to the doorstep of 'a house of ill repute' and knocked on the door.

When the Madam answered it, she saw the little boy and asked what he wanted.

He said, 'I want to have sex with one of the women inside. I have the money to buy it, and I'm not leaving until I get it.

The Madam figured, why not, so she told him to come in. Once in, she told him to pick any of the girls he liked. He asked, 'Do any of the girls have any diseases?'

Of course the Madam said 'No'.

The boy said, 'I heard all the men talking about having to get shots after making love with Amber - THAT'S the girl I want.'

Since the little boy was so adamant and had the money to pay for it, the Madam told him to go to the first room on the right.

He headed down the hall dragging the squashed frog behind him. Ten minutes later he came back, still dragging the frog, paid the Madam, and headed out the door.

The Madam stopped him and asked, 'Why did you pick the only girl in the place with a disease, instead of one of the others?'

He said, 'Well, if you must know, tonight when I get home, my parents are going out to a restaurant to eat, leaving me at home with a baby-sitter. After they leave, my baby-sitter will have sex with me because she just happens to be very fond of cute little boys. She will then get the disease that I just caught. When Mum and Dad get back, Dad will take the baby-sitter home. On the way, he'll give her one in the car and he'll catch the disease.

Then when Dad gets home from the baby-sitter's, he and Mum will go to bed and have sex, and Mum will catch it.

In the morning when Dad goes to work, the Milkman will deliver the milk, have a quickie with Mum and catch the disease, and HE'S the prick who ran over my FROG!'

You despised everything about them? Christ get real do you think we are so silly as to believe that spin. I would like to know your real name and your job in a previous life. Get over it Bruce baby.

Heh, heh. To be somewhat crude, sorry. All the while Malcolm thought he was 'white-anting' Tony Abbott, his pants were being carefully removed and he was being gently led to the barrel. Wonder what 'funnies' he'll crack about this at the next QT.

Malcolm's is white with rage and being hostile to his colleagues, over the appointment of that pair. He has been humiliated and belittled in front of his leftist mates so the rage is palpable. Not nice.

Sell the whole thing off. Maybe keep Radio Australia.

From Bolt Report: Malcolm Turnbull is upset at the appointment of Neil Brown and Janet Albrechtsen to the ABC nomination board.

Joe Blow....there used to be a requirement, I think of ten years service, before a politician would be entitled to a C of A superannuation pension but this may have been wound back by now.

the tattooed skins was a fact
who knows who but it did happen

Bruce Rugby. Most of your readers would have no knowledge of Irma Grese. She was the topic of a post WWII repor/trial that claimed she, as a camp guard,brutalised the inmates of Auschwitz and Belsen concentration camps to the extent that she made lamp shades from tatooed skin of deceased inmates. This, of course, has never been proven as is the case witht most of the excesses of that time and location. It follows that 'the first casualty of war - is the truth'.Reputable reports claim that the payment of German personal reparations to many former inmates have been based on equally nebulous claims.

This is the best news I've heard about their ABC in a very long time. It would be justice if the overpaid, under talented presenters were forced to reapply for their jobs - and they missed out. WhAt joy. Good reason to breakout the Bolly.

Interesting point raised on Bolt's blog -


CLIVE Palmer has installed his own computers in his Parliament House office to guard against the prying eyes of ASIO spies, declaring “all the phones and all the computers are tapped”.

But the super secret spy agency has hit back, saying it neither has “the resources, the need, or the inclination” to launch a mass operation into Mr Palmer and his MP colleagues.

In fact:

Using his own phones and computers would allow Mr Palmer to conduct any business in his office without breaching entitlement rules.
