Attention all Aussies

Dear fellow Australians,

Your assistance is required later this year during the federal election. The current labour government does not deserve a second term and every vote counts. Make sure you register with the Aust embacy or via the electoral role so that you can vote from overseas and have some input. Thanks.

It's 'Labor' (that is the way the pinkos chose to spell the name of their party) and it's 'embassy'. Apart from that, I agree with your post.

Oh, and we have a Consulate in Hong Kong, not an Embassy.

"Pinkos"..who ever says that since about 1956? Bet they're Lesbian Hippies too. They should get their hair cut.

John Howard's gone and Pauline Hanson's moving to England. Captain Dart you must be devastated you're country has gone to the dogs. Still at least you've got Alan Jones to keep you comforted!

Damned commie, lezo, greeny, pinkos.........

Yes, yes, belongs in Jet Blast, I know but...

NEWS FLASH:

Brisbane Police reported finding a man's body floating in the Brisbane River, near the Story Bridge. The man's name will not be released until his family has been notified.

The victim apparently drowned due to heavy beer consumption combined with a drug overdose. He was found wearing black fishnet stockings, a red garter belt, a pink G-string, a strap-on dildo, purple lipstick, and a “Rudd again in 2010” T-shirt. He also had a cucumber inserted in his rectum.

Police removed the Rudd T-shirt to spare his family any unnecessary embarrassment.

It was an Australian Labour Govt who shafted us pilots in 1989. Any pilot who votes for them either has a short memory or is STUPID.
Rudd is a FOOL.
He thinks he is fantastic because he speaks Mandarin. Does he not know there are 5 billion who speak it too


Cafe City..........I love your work!

Yeah sure...And I'll be voting for an Opposition led by a right wing nutter who sprouts that virginity is a gift to be cherished.

As an expatriate, I'm little affected either way.

And moving on from 89. Wouldn't today's pilots have been shafted more under Liberal industrial relations policies?

Yes I agree, Australian politics is a total mess and I'm too grateful for not having to be there relying on them to enhance my life.

Yep, and he got rid of that pesky 10 billion surplus, even with the GFC it takes some talent to go from 10 billion surplus to a deficit, what would the wits have done if they had started with a deficit ( as with most labour govs ) no points for guessing.
Oh, and the alchopop tax was a cracker, lets get Australia's youth onto the hard stuff

Watch out Kevin...

I think Kev should be worried because there's obviously someone more talented waiting in the wings to pounce on his next blunder. Julia Gillard? Nope. Penny Wong. No way. No, it's no other than that political genius Peter Garrett - who said ageing rock stars can't make good politicians?? Good grief.

As I said. Neither party affects me as an expat. But thanks to Krudd for opening up foreign investment into the Australian property market. I think I can now retire due ballooning prices and selling the farm to the Chinese.

Does anyone feel responsible for Liberal foreign policy? I mean what about war reparations for Iraq? What a stuff up.

I'm confused again. Do you mean that Non-Aussies are at last allowed to buy land in Australia,(?) just the same as people of any nationality, including Australian Nationality, have been allowed to buy land in the EU countries and also in Canada, and USA, all this for as long as I can remember. Well that Australian concession would be belated but great all the same.
