First up, a couple of quick questions. Does anyone else remember the promises made by Pauline Hanson prior to the July 2 (2016) election? What were the one or two issues that re-branded and re-launched Hanson’s political career? 

I’d have to nominate ‘Ban Halal’ and ’Stop Muslim immigration’.

Whether you agree with her major policy platforms, or not, what’s worth considering is what drove the rise of Pauline Hanson.

Prior to the election Hanson tapped into growing anger over Islamic terrorism, both here and abroad, and the funds linked to terrorism via freelance halal certifiers adding millions to our household grocery bills.

It’s been almost six months since the election and Hanson has been shown to be all talk, all stunts, all show…but no action. 

All we’ve seen from Hanson are regular Facebook videos, tweets, and stunts like jumping from a boat into the water in Queensland to prove the Barrier Reef is in good shape, and popping a champagne in designer clothing outside the front of parliament house after Donald Trump’s election win. 

Stunts are well and good, but they don’t change the laws or implement reform. 

Anybody can shoot a video and post to Facebook. You don’t need to be elected to Parliament to do that. What counts is the wheeling and dealing with the government when the opportunity presents itself. Those opportunities were up for grabs this week. 

Hanson has shown herself to be either out of her depth, incompetent or disingenuous. 

When Pauline was calling to ‘ban halal’ she no doubt meant change to the current methods of private certification, a free-for-all that allows Islamic businessmen to exploit, and profiteer from, zero regulation in the sector. 

It’s already been established by an ABC (4 Corners) investigation, and others, that Australian halal certification funds are funnelled by certifiers to the building of Islamic schools and mosques overseas, and also to ‘Islamic charities’.

It’s well documented these front 'charities' transfer money to proscribed terrorist organisations via ‘aid agencies’ and other related charities, via a complex web of international bank accounts. 

This admission is on the AUSTRAC (Australian Transaction Reports and Analysis Centre) website, which is why AUSTRAC states they ‘have no evidence’ that halal certification funds terrorism. The links are intentionally broken by the scammers.

AUSTRAC has no jurisdiction beyond our shores. The legislation that governs AUSTRAC is the Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing Act 2006 (AML/CTF Act) a law which restricts who can report evidence to AUSTRAC. 

The only bodies that can legally report suspicious activity to AUSTRAC are specially proscribed 'reporting entities' such as gambling institutions, bullion dealers, financial institutions and similar commercial operations.

So how would a money handler know the purpose, or the end destiny, of funds once the money has left an Australian account? It’s impossible.

The scammers and terrorists are way ahead of our agencies and our laws.

I’ve been around long enough to recognise fraudulent politicians, saying whatever it takes to get elected - the opportunist who sniffs the wind, jumps on a bandwagon, saying whatever the public wants to hear to grab a vote. 

Bill Shorten, Malcolm Turnbull, Nick Xenophon, Clive Palmer…they’re all cut from the same cloth. 

And so is Pauline Hanson. 

The one golden opportunity Pauline Hanson had to come good on her promise to ‘ban halal’ (certification) was lost this week, either out of a lack of interest, incompetence or both.

Exactly a year ago the Senate tabled its inquiry into third party certification of food. This inquiry was brought on by relentless campaigning by Kirralie Smith from the long running website Halal Choices (, ringing alarm bells on the religious food tax and terror links.

Almost 1,500 submissions were made to the Senate Economics Reference Committee by Smith and many other concerned Australians. 

One submission by Bernard Gaynor, a former Mid-East serving soldier, contained 6,000 signatures objecting to private Halal Certification of Australian groceries.

The inquiry ran for over 6 months. 

So what did Pauline Hanson submit to the Inquiry?




Nought…not a thing. 

Not interested. 

That opportunity for Pauline Hanson to put up, was not taken up. 

Since the inquiry was tabled a year ago, with multiple recommendations to regulate halal certification, it’s been sitting on a shelf, gathering dust. 

The Chair of the Senate committee, the now infamously compromised (born Muslim) Sam Dastyari, was opposed to the inquiry into halal certification, however, admitted after the evidence was put before him, “Some certifiers are nothing more than scammers."

Dastyari went on to say, ”This (scamming) has undermined public confidence and, in the committee's view, amplified the perceived seriousness of any shortcomings that may exist.”

Dastyari went even further, "It is an inescapable fact that halal certification is poorly understood, and arguably under-regulated, certainly in the domestic market. This compromises the integrity of the system and has allowed questionable conduct by certifiers of questionable expertise, and questionable intent."

The final Report found that there were "credible reports suggesting that the lack of regulation has been unscrupulously exploited."

The Committee asked the Turnbull Government to extend regulation of all halal goods sold in the domestic market so all food certified as halal should be labelled and for the government to establish a single certifying authority and trademark to counter consumer mistrust.

Yet a year on, nothing has been done. 

The one person who could be doing something is Pauline Hanson, after all, isn’t that what she promised her supporters?

From the One Nation website during the election campaign and still up:

Pauline Hanson's One Nation will call for the banning of Australian and non-Australian companies operating in Australia from paying a Halal certification tax. 

Collecting monies for this certification will be illegal.

All products that are Halal Certified must be clearly marked and easily identified by consumers.

Companies that wish to export product to Muslim countries must gain Halal certification from our Government.

She doesn’t need to do much. 

The gun has been loaded, handed to her, even cocked for her. All Hanson needs to do is pull the trigger. 

Hanson’s biggest opportunity to act was presented to her on a silver non-halal platter this week. 

At a time when the Government was at its most vulnerable, desperate for each Senate vote to pass its ABCC ‘building watchdog’ and backpacker tax bills, deals were done with just about every political party and independent crossbencher of every colour and persuasion.  

Nick Xenophon used his numbers for the ABCC bill to get the government to make concessions on the Murray-Darling Basin plan to benefit Xenophon’s home state of South Australia. 

Derryn Hinch used his vote to water down the ABCC bill to make it more palatable to Labor and the Unions.

Liberal Democrat, David Leyonhjelm, used his vote to force the ABC and SBS to have open community forums at board meetings, making the ABC and SBS more transparent and accountable. 

Jacqui Lambie, Derryn Hinch and now rogue One Nation senator Rod Culleton joined forces to successfully place downward pressure on the backpacker tax. 

Even the Greens were able to extract $100 million from the government for Landcare, to get the backpacker tax through the Senate, so desperate was the government to do a deal with anyone.

In contrast, Hanson did….nothing….again.

This week, Hanson was presented the perfect opportunity to say to the Turnbull Government, “If you want my three votes I want the recommendations of the Senate inquiry into Halal Certification to be implemented.”

Isn’t that why so many of her supporters voted for her?

The Facebook stunts, Youtube videos and tweets don’t get the job done. 

These tactics are simply shallow exercises in pretence to convey to her supporters she is ‘doing something’, while in reality, doing nothing. 

Two days after the Saturday, July 2, 2016 election I wrote on this blog:

The big surprise to me was the most alternative conservative party, Australian Liberty Alliance (ALA), didn’t get a Senate seat despite attracting tens of thousands of online and on ground supporters. 

What happened?

Pauline Hanson happened.

ALA is a party founded on opposition to Islam and halal certification, calling for a restriction on Islamic immigration. ALA's roots go back to online forums 13 years ago. 

Six years ago the online group formed the Q Society which became the political party ALA with 20 conservative policies.

Pauline Hanson jumped on the ALA bandwagon hijacking years of hard work of its founders, then taking the ALA homework to the elections. 

Kirralie Smith, is the founder of Halal Choices - a consumer website which lists halal certified foods. 

Smith is a campaigner, nicknamed the 'accidental activist' by some in the media, who largely uncovered the scams in Australia’s halal certification industry and pushed for a Senate inquiry. 

Smith had evidence halal funds were being funnelled as ‘donations’ to Australian based Islamic charities. These charities then sent the proceeds to overseas Islamic causes in a complex web of bank accounts, several with links to government listed terrorist organisations. 

Kirralie Smith fought hard and got that inquiry. 

Smith was asked to appear at the Senate inquiry, which she did. She is regarded by politicians and media as the go-to expert in halal certification in all its forms. 

Bernard Gaynor, a returned soldier who has served in the Mid East several times, expert in Arabic language and culture also appeared at the inquiry. Gaynor presented a submission with 6,000 supporters’ signatures. (Both Smith and Gaynor were ALA candidates).

And Pauline Hanson?

Missing in action. 

No submissions to the Senate inquiry. No appearance. 


Because she doesn’t have a clue on the topic. 

Kirralie Smith has been trying for years to wake up politicians and media on the halal scams.  

Some two years ago Kirralie Smith contacted Hanson’s office to bring her findings to Hanson’s attention. Hanson wasn't interested. 

Smith also contacted Jacqui Lambie’s office. Similarly, Lambie wasn't interested. 

So Smith turned online, writing for The Pickering Post where her articles were shared by tens of thousands of readers. 

Only once Kirralie Smith’s hard work exposing the halal certification scams got attention did Hanson and Lambie begin to take notice. 

Lambie has since threatened to introduce a private Senator's bill to stop 'halal money' funding Islamic State. Headline grabbing stuff but no understanding of how the halal certification system works. 

Jacqui Lambie was exposed as an empty vessel on Islam when Barrie Cassidy asked her on Insiders, "What do you understand Sharia Law to mean?".

She stumbled and mumbled through the interview without a clue. You can see the excruciating spectacle here on YouTube. (click)

Fellow empty vessel, Hanson, ever the opportunist, quickly jumped on the halal certification and anti-Islam vote with an eye on the Federal election, shouting ‘halal scams’, having only ever read recently what was online, mostly exposed by Kirralie Smith. 

Hanson pretends she’s been warning about Islam for years, but a look at her record shows this to be a huge invention (that’s being polite). 

Pauline Hanson’s last tilt at an election was in the 2013 Federal election when she stood in NSW as a Senate candidate. 

She bombed out with only 1.77% of the primary vote. 

Not a word about halal certification or Islam. Looking back at her previous 20 years, still nothing about halal certification or Islam.

What we do find is Pauline Hanson’s track record of anti-Asian and anti-aboriginal rhetoric - blatant bigotry based on race. 

This time around Hanson smelled an opportunity.

Islam is different in that it’s an ideology, not a race. A minor technicality and easily overcome. 

She only needed to shift gears to capitalise on the hard work of others like Smith, Gaynor, Debbie Robinson in WA and many of the other ALA candidates who didn’t have the Pauline Hanson profile. 

Hanson is now calling for action on halal certification and Islam. Mmm…where did she get that from?

Several days later on July 11, 2016 I wrote: 

It didn’t end well for Clive Palmer and it won’t end well for Pauline Hanson. Going to an election on a wonky platform inevitably ends in tears. 

Sure, Pauline Hanson has a fan base, but so did Clive with more MPs than Hanson. 

Where’s PUP today? It’s where One Nation will end up next election if Hanson doesn’t get her act together. 

Hanson has been caught out copying and pasting her polices from various internet sites. I first pointed this out a few days after the July 2 election. She’s not one for doing her own homework, but pinching the work of others.

It’s bad enough rushing to an election on the back of others’ hard work, but it's worse when you don’t bother to spend the time familiarising yourself with the policies you’ve nicked. Watching Pauline Hanson struggle through an interview, without a clue on the issues she’s meant to represent is painfully excruciating.  

Reports today chronicle an assortment of One Nation party policies plagiarised from Wikipedia and various other political websites (including the Australian Q Society, the founding base of the Australian Liberty Alliance).

The One Nation website also claims, "The estimated worth of Halal accreditation worldwide is in excess of $2.5 trillion per annum.”

This is misleading at best. It’s not the accreditation (i.e. halal certification) but the Halal food market worth $2.5 trillion. There’s a difference. Most halal food globally is not certified. 

After the election Hanson posted a video on her Facebook page chatting from her kitchen pouring halal-certified Coles milk into her tea. For this she was rightly caught out. Hanson opposes halal certification, campaigning on policies to make halal certification illegal.

Halal certified milk (including Coles) and other foods are publicly listed on the Halal Choices website, a well researched consumer website founded by Kirralie Smith. There’s even a Halal Choices phone app so there really is no excuse for buying halal-certified milk if you’re so genuinely against it. 

In response to the criticism of her using halal-certified milk, Hanson posted a photo on her Facebook page of two bottles of milk and the words:

"I woke up this morning to find claims I support Coles milk.

"I thought these people without lives might like to see what's in the fridge today."

Unfortunately, again, one of the bottles of milk was halal-certified, which she could easily have checked before making a second faux pas. 

Does this matter? 

Of course it does. 

If you’re going to go into the Senate and argue the case, at least know what you’re talking about. 

Hanson is exceptional at getting the headlines. Outrageous statements such as we are 'in danger of being swamped by Asians’ will get the TV grabs, but also paints a picture of a shrill white supremacist. 

There’s no doubting Pauline Hanson is committed to core Australian values as she perceives them, and she courageously defends those values. 

But as an MP Hanson needs to know her stuff and prosecute her case. 

If she can’t do that, she’ll be discredited, ripped apart and spat out once again leaving a trail of angry voters once again looking for a political voice.

That was written several months ago, and nothing has changed since then to change my mind. In fact, what we saw this week has validated what I wrote back  then.

To add further to this sentiment, Kirralie Smith recently contacted Pauline Hanson to plead with her to take a look at the Senate inquiry and to act on it. 

Smith wrote on her blog several days ago:

As I explained to Pauline Hanson over the phone, it is not about introducing new legislation, or coming up with different angles on halal certification. It doesn't require more speeches or new information. All that is required is for senators and MPs to make some noise and pressure the government to do the right thing and implement the recommendations.

All Hanson and her fellow One Nation Senators need to do is highlight the fact the government is treating the democratic process with contempt by refusing to act on the senate recommendations.

The issue is with halal certification. It is the extraordinary amount of money that is charged for halal fees without consumer knowledge or consent that is the problem. 

When I contacted Kirralie Smith to get more information, she said she wants to give Hanson as much information as possible to help her get across the subject. She doesn’t want to jeopardise the process by critiquing Hanson but wants to keep the line of communication open. 

Without saying as much to me, I got the distinct impression Kirralie Smith is extremely frustrated with Hanson’s ‘do-nothing’, couldn't care less attitude.

Pauline Hanson rode to power on the strength of promises she pinched, with vows that she will hold the big players to account.

But who keeps One Nation to account when it proves to be just another another political party that over promises but doesn’t deliver?

Has Pauline drunk too much of the Canberra cool aid inside the Canberra bubble of plush offices, white limos, staff, high salary, entitlements and first class air travel?

Whatever it is that’s causing her to fail her supporters on one of the major policies she carried to the election, that got her elected….Pauline, please explain.

Kirralie Smith - Government contempt toward the democratic process


Amen to Magilla Gorilla. I am very quickly running out of ANYONE to vote for. Interesting point about the ALA. With Pauline Hanson doing nothing, it tends to make one a little suspicious. But that's getting a bit too "conspiracy theoristic". Mind you, I would not be surprised by anything.

I've had plenty of time to contemplate your story PZ , and I think you are correct . I voted for a dud and I'm sorry . It won't happen again .

DAFFYD : "Avoiding any action on her election promises", Correct. "Dumping stupid little video clips on her blindly infatuated supporters", Correct. "The Pauline for PM mob of nitwits", Correct. "The stupid stunts", Correct. "Diversions", Correct. "But who is fooled..?", Unfortunately for reasonable Australians, thousands of "Nitwits"..!

Na, it's still here. Commenting on it now.

Millionaire entrepreneur Dick Smith has backed Pauline Hanson’s hard line stance on immigration and has offered to advise One Nation as it plans a major campaign in Western Sydney at the next state and federal elections.

The buy-Australia campaigner, who will meet Ms Hanson before Christmas to discuss her policy, predicts she will enjoy a Trump-like wave of support in traditionally conservative areas.

Mr Smith, told The Daily Telegraph he decided to help Ms Hanson after friends on both sides of the political spectrum had embraced her party. He said he too supported many of her policies.

“I support her policy on Julian Assange. I support her immigration policy. She says she’s going to have a policy to help general aviation. I’ll certainly support that,” Mr Smith said. “I agree with her views on immigration numbers, that is about 70,000 a year, not 200,000. But I do not agree with her views on Muslim immigration,” he said.

Ms Hanson said she would run One Nation candidates in the next NSW state and federal elections, targeting seats across Sydney where she believes voters want change.

“People are just really fed up with the major parties and screaming out for change,” she said. “I think there’s a move on across the country for One Nation.”

Mr Smith, who threatened to run against Bronwyn Bishop in the last federal election if the then member for Mackellar did not retire, said he had noticed “so many” of his former Coalition supporting friends had switched their support to Ms Hanson. “I am starting to see why she’s going to have incredible support and how completely disappointed people are with the two major parties,” he said.

He said he had confronted her about claims she was a racist. “I asked her, does she think she’s superior to other races? She said no,” he said.

Mr Smith ruled out financial backing for One Nation, saying he had never donated to a political party.

He said he might stand for federal parliament as an independent at the next election.

She may not be perfect Paul. But she is far and away the best we have at the moment. I would take her in a heartbeat over Liberal, Labor or the Greens. At least she is a genuinely patriotic Australian. Her opposition fail at the first hurdle.

The plain fact is that Pauline Hanson knows very, very little about just about everything. She does have the ability to say things people wish they could say but she says them much in the same sense as the idiot gardener Chauncey, in the 70s film "Being There", always knew when to say "yes", a happy knack which eventually saw him become US president. The best thing that senator Hanson could do is to merge One Nation with a party led by Cory Bernardi, who is anything but a Chauncey type character. With One Nation's voter base and Bernardi's political skills, we would have a credible right wing conservative that really would go places. If only Pauline will agree.

There ya go Paul Z .... with all the answers when are YOU gunna be Prime Finisher.......the worst critics of all sit back in their chairs and pick holes in everyone in the spotlight.
Get into the spotlight yourself if you don't like what you see and SOMETHING to BENEFIT Australia and her people instead of nit-picking and drawing cartoons for news media, et al!

Absolutely "spot on" again Paul..!
In the past when you have criticised PH, her supporters have turned real nasty.

Hanson & Lambie are an embarrassment to all reasonable people on our side.
Hanson is a liability to the side, the very cause, that she "thinks" she is "leading".
It's true that Hanson is patriotic & has some courage & determination etc. But, she is
completely (& blissfully) unaware of her own severely limited intellect & capabilities.

Her self-deception & thorough ignorance is dangerous because she really believes
that she is "The Saviour" & that "all" revolves around her. She can't possibly see the poor job she is doing. The epitome of ignorance.

I recently viewed my first ever Q&A episode, the one that I call "the ABCassassination
of Pauline Hanson" from a few months ago. Of course it was a complete set up to
destroy Hanson & in turn, our side of the fence. And of course Hanson was completely
ill-equiped for the task. Anyone that thinks "she did a great job" has rocks in their head.
She did a pathetic job of defending herself & representing our side of the argument.
The attacks on her were just so "wrong" that they left themselves wide-open to being
completely destroyed by anyone with reasonable knowledge & debating skills.
I couldn't help imagining what the "show" would have been like if Kirralie Smith would have been sitting in Hanson's chair. Kirralie Smith easily out-classes Hanson in every regard, she is worth 100 Hansons.

To all the fellow patriots that have already fiercely attacked Paul over his very accurate & reasonable criticisms of Hanson, the following image comes to mind :
A group of naive soldiers blindly following an inept, overconfident captain into battle.
This captain has very little knowledge of the enemy & their tactics, the layout of the
battlefield & the basics of combat strategy. The captain has armed the group with old
small calibre guns & a handful of ammunition & tells them to go bare foot because the
boots have not arrived. The captain gives vague commands like :
# "Ah can 2 or 3 of you just wander over that way somewhere & see what happens".
# "Don't shoot unless you have to, remember you haven't got much ammo".
# "Remember, I'm the captain, without me you'd be nothin' ".
# "And ah, don't do anything to make me look bad".

To the fierce Hanson supporters :
Have you had a careful look at all the work that Kirralie Smith has done..?
Have you listened to & considered the well spoken, reasonable, knowledgeable,
strong & sincere words that Kirralie has recorded..?
Are you aware of all the truly great work that Kirralie, Debbie Robinson, Bernard Gaynor, the Q Society & the Australian Liberty Alliance have done to alert Australians to the serious problems we are facing..?
Are you aware of the thoughtful & very practical solutions they have presented to try
to tackle these problems..?
Do you know of the great sacrifices they have made to do this work..? (Hanson isn't
the only one that has suffered & made sacrifices).
Or do you blindly support Hanson, because she is famous & "on the tele", then attack
Paul, without any knowledge, at all, of why he has every reason to criticise her.

I believe that Paul criticises her because he cares deeply about the serious problems we are facing. He must (like myself) be concerned that an ill-suited person with delusions about her own abilities has won a celebrity competition & has been given an extremely important job.
Meanwhile there are other people that are far more capable of doing this job, they have
been working hard at it for many years. They are not working at being celebrities.
They have put everything they have into fighting this battle in an intelligent, reasonable
& practical manner. They actually do have "what it takes" to get the job done.

By giving this job to a celebrity who is not well equiped to do it, supporters are just shooting themselves (& their children futures) in the foot.

We are engaged in a deadly serious battle right now..! So who would you rather follow into battle, a Winston Churchill or an F-Troop Wilton Parmenter ..?

Pauline has 4 seats in the senate and none in the lower house. What can she do other then mention her agenda to the parliament? Shes bought the right ideas to the table but without the backing of a major party none of her policy is going to get through. The best she can hope for is to wheel and deal with the lnp and conservative cross benchers. Shes done this already. The helped pass some lnp tax cuts and in return they passed some of her legislation against asylum seekers. Its not fair to expect paulines agenda to sail through parliament without control of both houses. She doesnt have the good fortune of howard or the newly elected trump where they control both houses.

The righteous got close to 50% of the vote, unheard of up until more recent times. Slowly slowly catchy monkey.

Thunder storm, asthma storm, wimp storm. Where's the water?

ALA & Q Soc (both of which I was a member for some time) were two-faced, stating one thing - their anti-islam policies - and writing another 'most moslems are moderate, peace-loving, hard-working' and when questioned I was told it was STRATEGY. To me that is their own brand of 'taqiyya'! And many people began to see that. Now at their latest meeting, it is all about their leadership; damn the members! Pauline may have her faults but is a better option than ALA/Q! :P

ICAC my arse. How dare you threaten decent, innocent people, donna godbolt, hiding behind your 203rd username !!!

And ICAC have given donna godbolt SPECIAL WITNESS PROTECTION and a SPECIAL HOTLINE (PROTECTED) PHONE NUMBER so she can ring ‘em and tell ‘em more lies !! If it wasn’t so serious, it would be a joke.

ICAC need to give Pickering posters some bleeding PROTECTION AGAINST GODBOLT. Is it full moon again? Do you think they’ll be pleased to know you’ve been boasting about it all on a public forum, godbolt ? Have you broken any of the ICAC witness rules ? None? Wouldn’t surprise me – or anyone else - in the slightest if you have.

Does ICAC know you posted under the SA Correctional Officers’ badge, when you had no right to hold yourself out as a prison officer – because you aren’t? Isn’t that similar to what you are supposedly attempting to accuse another poster of? “Saddler, the suspicion is....blah blah”. We need to get a copy of those posts of yours off to ICAC, don’t we? How about the posts where you bragged that prisons are “YOUR TURF”? That’s what you said, isn’t it, godbolt? And that you KNOW people, huh? Didn’t you suggest a “blind date” for your poor target in northern NSW? “Blind” as in she’ll never SEE what hit her – or was it, she’ll never SEE who killed her? That’s what you really meant, isn’t it? If I remember correctly, you posted to Mrs Sigley that IF she survived prison, she wouldn’t survive it for long, didn’t you? Good thing I kept your posts and screenshots, hey?

Have you given them the so-called "evidence" that you've fabricated on PP godbolt? The faked emails about the imaginary plot you dreamed up, against your life? Have you had more conversations with all the made-up, pretend little friends you invent? They'll find you out for the liar and fantasist you are. Can't say you weren't warned....other posters' comments that you re-type - how many of those - and where - have you presented as genuine "evidence" godbolt? Did you forget the originals would be on the servers? Or have you somehow managed to have the originals altered? Oh and all your lies about dead babies and hoax calls and dozens of ambulances – just not true, is it?

Do excuse me for asking. But I wouldn't put anything past a woman who – even before breakfast - announces on a public forum the names of two people she wants dead, and who writes fabricated discussions, trying to implicate decent people in penny-dreadful, sixth rate, melodramatic murder and mayhem. Don’t ever give up welfare godbolt because you’ll never get a job script-writing that’s for sure. Though, come to think of it, your attempt at murder mystery is so awful, you might get a job at the ABC.


'Together We Can Achieve Marriage Equality'. Keep playing the ad, you'll need more than that.


Recently, a female police officer arrested Patrick Lawrence, a 22 year
old male, who was caught fornicating with a pumpkin in the middle of
the night.
The next day, at the Horsham Court (Victoria, Australia), Lawrence was
charged with lewd and lascivious behaviour, public indecency, and
public intoxication.
Lawrence explained that, as he was passing a pumpkin patch on his way
home from a drinking session, he decided to stop.
"You know how a pumpkin can be soft and squishy inside... well, there
was no one around for miles or at least I thought there wasn't
anyone around..." he stated.
Lawrence went on to say that he pulled over to the side of the road,
picked out a pumpkin that he felt was appropriate to his purpose, cut
a hole in it and proceeded to satisfy his pressing need.
"I s'pose I was really into it, you know?" he commented with evident
embarrassment. In the process of doing the deed, Lawrence failed to
notice an approaching police car and was unaware of his audience,
until Senior Constable Brenda Taylor approached him.
'It was an unusual situation, that's for sure,' Senior Constable
Brenda Taylor told the magistrate.
'I walked up to Lawrence and he's just banging away at this pumpkin...'
Constable Taylor went on to describe what happened when she approached
Lawrence ....
"I said: 'Excuse me sir, why are you having sex with a pumpkin?
"Lawrence froze. He was clearly very surprised that I was there, but
then he looked me straight in the eye and said: 'A pumpkin? Shit ?
is it midnight already'?"


Pity Turnball didn't have the decency to fuck off.

Hinch thinks he is real smart. DO NOT THINK SO MAN. Alcohol has fused the grey cells. (The liver is the first to go you have done that.) the brain takes a while longer, but you are halfway there pal.

Hinch lives in a vacuum compared to Hanson. She at least thinks . He just reacts for the next headline.
