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.


Richard Marles, Monday, Feb 17: “Labor's PNG (Manus Island) solution is the principal reason the boats have stopped.” Richard Marles, Tuesday, Feb 18: "This is now the second serious incident which has occurred at the Manus Island detention facility since the Abbott Government came to power."

Labor’s Shadow Trade Minister, Richard Marles gains more credence when he says nothing. 

Poor Richard is having a terrible time trying to claim credit for Rudd’s Manus Island “solution” while at the same time blaming Abbott for a Manus Island disaster.

Kevin Rudd’s PNG “solution” was one of his more frantic pre-election thought bubbles that was bound to burst. A desperate idea to redress a situation for which he was solely responsible. 

Only Rudd’s addled brain could have conceived of such a notion as PNG.

Rudd’s concept of resettling processed “refugees” from Manus Island to Port Moresby was his parting moment of sheer lunacy, but if you throw enough money at PM O'Neill, anything is possible.

“Pickering Post” reported last October that, “It (Rudd’s PNG Solution) will create an insoluble civil war to our north between Islamic refugees, and jealously indigenous tribal gangs of savage head-hunting, pig-loving cannibals whose only law is a bush knife, payback, voodoo, and black magic.”

There has never been two more incompatible cultures on earth than that of a New Guinean and an Islamist. And they should never be settled in the same country, let alone on the same island. 

It's London to a brick on that Morrison’s final report of what actually happened on Manus Island will bear that out. 

And as for the marvellous Mr Marles? Sorry mate, there is only one reason the boats have stopped and it has nought to do with Manus Island or any other processing centre: Abbott stopped them and turned them around, just like he said he would. 

Remember? Just like you (and the Indonesians) said he couldn’t?


Marles is a lawyer I believe, question time gives him the opportunity to ask the type of question which would not be permitted in court, repeatedly!

Sorry it was a poor attempt at humour not a comment on your observation which I take as plausible. ( you "gotta" admit there is a resemblance there?)

Janama is this you?

BRA I wish you would stop beating around the bush and say what you mean.

Wonder if the erudite Mr Marles would have the mental acuity to go back a short way in history and identify just whom it was that created the need for this disgusting prison to house the economic invaders. Well; that is, to house the ones that didn't drown in their vain attempt to breach our borders illegally. Clue K R. A Labor politician if my recall is correct. If I was this clown I would be hiding under a rock from shame. Still that is the advantage of being brain washed it eliminates all semblance of common sense, honesty, integrity and shame and replaces it with blind obedience to Communist Central.

Have never seen so much hullaballoo about the death at Manus, on the ABC, Drum etc. Where the hell were these journo idiots when women and children were being smashed onto the rocks at CI. Softy Seccombe carrying on about the Government policies being inhumane because one bloody unruly refo is dead. No mention of the thousands dead at sea - or the fact that once the refos are stopped there will be no more detention centres, no more deaths at sea and no more accidental Navy incursions upsetting the Indos. It will be all over - If Labor were there it would be going on for eternity. Abbott is right, the ABC is still anti Australian and definitely anti Abbott.

Re the asylum seekers rioting at Manus Island: am I correct that this occurred immediately after the detention centre received 'fact finding' a visit from Senator Sarah Hanson-Young?

Am I the only one who thinks this might not be a total coincidence?

FFS, these feral scum hate each other so much, Its a well known fact ! at 1 detention centre in Australia, I was advised, " That a certain person was going to be KILLED for stealing from others, within the detention centre! " They did it too.... Then tried blaming it on the guards... Believe very little of what you hear in the media ! as they CAN'T and DON'T TELL THY TRUTH, at all.............................

In my mind I can only think of three possible scenarios for what happened in Manus:
1. The asylum seekers were going quietly about their day to day living and a group of sadistic security guards just decided to give them a thrashing.
2. The asylum seekers, in the way of middle-eastern types, were abusive and threatening towards the guards who got fed up and decided to bang some heads together.
3. Asylum seeker leaders or refugee advocates, or both, fed up with the lack of publicity the Manus inmates were getting, thought a riot might be a good way to get into the spotlight.
While I think that scenario 1. is somewhat unlikely, scenarios 2 and 3 seem credible. Anyway, just my opinion.

I would like to know who pays for the tools wage,My bet is Us taxpayers.Can someone find out?

JennyF,you think Combet would have done this for his fellow union mates for nothing,but then again he snubs his nose at the workers,bloody hypocrite.

I read yesterday in the Australian, that some of the detainees had learnt some insulting language and were using the local insults to goad the guards.

Yes the guards showed they mean business. Had to chuckle when I read in yesterday's Australian, one detainee was treated for a bullet in the buttocks, throwing insults and rocks and running away. Apparently the detainees had learnt a few local insults and threw them at the guards, goading them and came off second best.

Manus guards showed Aust how to quell a riot. Give them a big arse pay rise. Transfer all illegals to Manus.

Does The Trail Of Dead Bankers Lead Somewhere?

BB. I've seen Shakespeare taught with a marxist- feminist interpretation - in an elite school. Make no mistake the leftist teachers "shelter" from the ravages of the State system and ruthlessly ply their ideology. They themselves were probably brainwashed by the "agents of influence" - see Royal Commission on Intelligence and Security (1974 - 1978)

"Dumb Fucks as the Colby's are" Jeeez, didn't realise you were such a highly qualified criminologist Oldmate! Obviously you personally knowing the Corby's for all those years qualifies you to make such an observation. Just another armchair dickhead pumping out the old chestnuts about if your family are "Dumb Fucks" then you must be too! I would love to have a close look at your family members and make an armchair observation...mmmm!

Police are called to an apartment and find a woman holding a bloody 3-iron standing over a lifeless man.
The detective asks, "Ma'am, is that your husband?"
"Yes" says the woman.
"Did you hit him with that golf club?" "Yes, yes, I did." The woman begins to sob, drops the club, and puts her hands on her face.
"How many times did you hit him?"
"I don't know -- put me down for a five."

Drugs? What drugs? Who ordered the drugs to be destroyed before it could be determined where they came from? Fingerprints? What fingerprints? Why were the packages not fingerprinted to see who had handled them? Evidence? What evidence? How can you be convicted and given 20 years with no exhibit, no fingerprints, no admission of guilt, no witnesses seeing you handle the drugs or putting them in a boogie bag! Nothing but a Kangaroo Court with proceedings conducted in a foreign language which you don't understand and have no clue about what's being said! Totally useless shitheads from the Australian Consulate doing sweet FA about protesting the lack of evidence presented to the Court. Yeah, bleeding hearts brigade and you were there to witness the packing the drugs in her bag! Of course!

Here is the JOKE of the day, Now we responsible for IRANs citizens?????>>>What Next>>>TEHRAN – The Iranian Foreign Ministry has summoned Australian Ambassador Paul Foley to protest the death of an Iranian citizen in an Australian-run immigration detention center on Monday.
During the meeting in Tehran on Tuesday, the director general for consular affairs of the Iranian Foreign Ministry, Hossein Mir Fakhar, delivered a formal complaint over the incident and called for a revision of the way Australia is treating asylum-seekers on humanitarian grounds.
