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.


Poor Tony Burke’s 20-year marriage was threadbare but there was a tasty little piece of fluff in his office perfect for bedding. She was the mail girl, ex-GetUP, a global warmist, dedicated Green advocate, lover of everything Left and her husband had just shot through. Poor Tony could hardly conceal his woody.

According to one person who knows her well, Skye Laris is a bit of an airhead and, like Tony, would be prepared to swap her grief-stricken feelings for the poor for a first-class seat at the pointy end of a Qantas 747 to anywhere.

Of course to get all this on a swindle docket, where the taxpayer foots the bill, poor Tony had to come out of the closet in 2012 to declare his undying love for his new “spouse”. Now everything that satisfied the hormonal flushes of both was on the public purse. Ripper!

With the kids of both parties combined it made for an avalanche of first-class expenses that would have embarrassed Donald Trump.

I reckon I could have snaffled Khloe Kardashian with what Tony was offering.

There is little doubt that the expensive couple have gone through the best part of a million bucks in the past three years... and that’s enough to have put every Sydney street kid up at the Hilton for six months.

Oh well, the poor and needy are easily forgotten at 33,000 ft with a belly full of culinary delights and fine wines when retiring to a first-class bed compartment on the way to a dozen tourist spots.

When Tony and his impressionable accomplice arrived at their first five-star European penthouse and Tony had just run the first bubble bath to immerse his newfound "love" in, it’s to be hoped he said a small prayer for his struggling constituents in the seat of Watson before he poured the contents of a $500 bottle of 1996 Dom Perignon over Ms Laris’ naked body.

Surely there was a slight socialist pang of guilt after lapping the last of the Champagne from Ms Laris’ private parts and laying her to rest on the pristine sheets of the four-poster for a night of wild bonking?

Nah... pangs of guilt are not for our Tony. Least of all when it comes to killing Bronwyn Bishop over the cost of a helicopter ride.

Right wing commentator, Andrew Bolt apologised to Bronwyn: “I was naive”, said Bolt, “How unfair that you alone were held to a standard no one else need meet.”

Hmmm true, but Andrew, you should have directed your anguish toward Tony Abbott for failing to support her. He knew exactly what her assassin Tony Burke had been up to for years... and so had everyone else in Parliament.

A $5,000 helicopter trip looked cheapskate when compared to how Tony Burke was relentlessly fleecing the public purse. But it was Tony Abbott’s cowardice in confronting the inequity alone that forced Bronwyn’s resignation.

When Ms Laris eventually tires of Mr Burke’s now restricted largesse and shoots through to Greener pastures, he might like to call Fairfax’s R.S.V.P. dating service.

I’m sure as one of the ALP true believers they will knock off $5 for an introduction.


Lets save a few $$ by removing the human judiciary and replacing it with computers that are fed all relevant evidence of both sides and computes a logic legal opinion based on the known law and appeals can be lodged the same which will bring a logical answer based on evidence not Class distinction .

While we are on the subject may we include the squander of money by the pompous legal franchise, namely Judges and Magistrates who think of themselves as being superior to us only because they had a good memory of what they were trained to memorize in law school to attain their qualifications to solicit for money legally and to compensate them for their dreary existance they must be appointed 6 Star luxury accommodation where ever any where in the world so they can visit those Law conferences in foreign lands that they attend and sign in and then walk out into that countryside to enjoy it's pleasures at our expense and then to claim it as a study tour and this is the same scenario of the Pollies and who do you think is responsible for allowing this to happen ??

It was Tony Abbott's guilt that he too had screwed us by claiming everything Bronwyn had much like Brandis and Slipper much like everyone else who went to Canberra because that is where the money is that sends these peoples people, the so called elected people who told us we needed them at election time to make things better for us but instead nothing much happens as usual and if it did it would be drowned out from the noise political parties scream at each other protecting their privileges over that of ours .

Where is Shorten's judgment? How could he judge a man such as Tony Burke when he is no better? To think of all the people who have given their lives for this country and believed in the Labour Party. Shorten and Burke are amongst many who should hang their heads in shame. Rest assured, Australians are not stupid. You WILL BE JUDGED at the ballot box!

We must do something to have this man stopped. Can we start a petition? Can we march in the streets? What can we do? Watching him sit in Parliament and still condemning Bronwyn Bishop who has paid the price, absolutely makes me sick. Such an immoral and dishonest man and could well hold a senior position if not prime minister if a Labour Government is returned. Are we that short of decent moral honest people to represent us in all parties that we have to suffer a man such as this!

What can we do to rid Parliament and Australia of this hyprocrite.

This excuse for a politian is the biggest hypocrite and the biggest liar that has the unfortunate privilege to walk the corridors of our parliament, and he the best that labor have, according to Shorten. What a joke

The Sutherland Leader today, Stefanie Jones former Labor candidate for Cronulla has taken an AVO out against a senior NSW ALP official alleging he tried to kiss her in June. What is it about Labor men and their staffers?

that they are - for sure!

SE, They are very wise words written about the voters of one side of politics engendering reasons to hate voters of the other side and it is so very true... The difference is "No one hates better, deeper, more fervently and permanently than the left"... they are the masters of hatred. I witness it within my own family

ha ha ha... fantastic eh? The study into rorts will be kept that one just wins the prize - bit like the MH17 thing.... WTF is wrong with people????

This puts a new light on it and confirms our beliefs. Next, what to do about it. Spelling it out to who becomes interested is a start. How fucking wrong is it that the study they are doing on rorts which will take 6 months will be kept secret.

In an indirect way we have stumbled across this haven't we Sandra. Not the technicalities like this we but we ...some us..have cottoned on that they are not ruling for us ..LNP, Labor, we have been saying her for a while now we are being stooged.

I came across this today - have a read, most interesting to see it laid out like this -
"Imagine that you are a group of rich and powerful people eager to be still richer and more powerful. But you live in a democratic society that gives each citizen an equal vote and thus sets sets limit on how much power you can amass. So you decide to steal the people's democracy.

How can this be done?

For starters, you would work to prevent the people from working together. As long as they can unite for common purposes, they can prevent you from gaining power over them.

Sowing hatred among them will work well to stop them from coming together. You don't have to reach all the people--half will do. If one half hates and distrusts the other half deeply enough, that will suffice to ensure that the people will be unable to cooperate to achieve goals they have in common.

To sow this enmity, you will need a media system. Through that system, you continually tell the people who listen to you how terrible the others are. They are not your fellow citizens with a somewhat different point of view, you tell them. They are the enemy. They don't love the nation; they have betrayed it. They want to steal your liberties and set up a tyranny over you.

Making one large group of basically decent citizens hate another large group of basically decent citizens requires getting people to believe many false ideas and "facts." That's not difficult in a totalitarian society where the ruling powers can block competing sources of information. But it's a huge challenge in a democratic society where freedoms of speech and press give everyone access to information that can expose your lies.

towdogs likes it on all fours....naa, jus being crude.

I acknowledge what you say 2dogs. There are different textures to the surface of their coats. I guess the problem is they all wear the coat of shafters, and it depends on which way you want it.

I think we have established that and that the LNP is better than Labor but they are both a Pox and don't rule for us.

I cannot agree SE... Not one single fibre in my soul will allow me to cast a vote that allows a Unionist to run this country. They are different and their policies show that.

Homosexual Activist Admits True Purpose of Battle is to Destroy Marriage
So it wouldn’t be hard to guess which side of the fence Malcolm Turnbull is on.
Even knowing that there are radicals in all movements, doesn’t lessen the startling admission recently by lesbian journalist Masha Gessen. On a radio show she actually admits that homosexual activists are lying about their radical political agenda. She says that they don’t want to access the institution of marriage; they want to radically redefine and eventually eliminate it.
Here is what she recently said on a radio interview:
“It’s a no-brainer that (homosexual activists) should have the right to marry, but I also think equally that it’s a no-brainer that the institution of marriage should not exist. …(F)ighting for gay marriage generally involves lying about what we are going to do with marriage when we get there — because we lie that the institution of marriage is not going to change, and that is a lie.
The institution of marriage is going to change, and it should change. And again, I don’t think it should exist. And I don’t like taking part in creating fictions about my life. That’s sort of not what I had in mind when I came out thirty years ago.
I have three kids who have five parents, more or less, and I don’t see why they shouldn’t have five parents legally… I met my new partner, and she had just had a baby, and that baby’s biological father is my brother, and my daughter’s biological father is a man who lives in Russia, and my adopted son also considers him his father. So the five parents break down into two groups of three… And really, I would like to live in a legal system that is capable of reflecting that reality, and I don’t think that’s compatible with the institution of marriage.”
For quite some time, the defenders of natural marriage have attempted to point out that the true agenda behind the homosexual demands organizations is not marriage equality; it is the total unraveling of marriage and uprooting traditional values from society. (This will ultimately include efforts to silence and punish some churches that openly adhere to their religious teachings about marriage and sexual morality.)
While few have been as vocal as this lesbian activist was in this interview, we do have numerical examples proving her point. When given the opportunity to marry, after laws have been struck down relatively small percentages of homosexuals actually bother to marry compared to their heterosexual counterparts. This raises question about the true need to unravel marriage for the “fair” extension its benefits. Only 12 percent of homosexuals in the Netherlands marry compared to 86 percent of their heterosexual peers. Less than 20 percent of same-sex couples already living together in California married when given the chance in 2008. In contrast, 91 percent of heterosexual couples in California who are living together are married.
Clearly this is about cultural change and tearing down the traditional family ethic, since it seems that most homosexuals living together neither need nor desire to marry, though they do desire to radically change marriage.
Gays and lesbians are free to live as they choose, and we live in a society which roundly applauds them doing so like never before in our history, but they do not have the right to rewrite marriage for all of society.
