Well, it seems like the country shoppers are still flocking, should that be floating?, in. The first thing I hope Tony instructs the our brave boys and girls in the Navy NOT TO DO, is not to go to the aid of any boat that sends a "help me" message before it has even left the Indonesian shoreline.

The second thing I hope he does, is to say it loud and clear, you WON'T get Australain citizenship under any circumstances, your family can't follow you, and if you have no passport, you get no welfare.

Over to you Prime Minister Abbott.

Julie Bishop has defended her efforts to deny compensation to WA asbestos victims in her role as a corporate lawyer in the 1980s.

Juliar Gillard was a lawyer from 1987 until 1995 when she took a leave of absence from Slater and Gordon to unsuccessfully run for the senate. She resigned completely in 1996.

Now why would I want this mature thread closed, save's me having to read woman's day for whose partner is leaving who and which lesbian polly is doing what to who.
I am baffled why such a large number of liberal men have such an inferiority complex with women. From Downer to his "things that batter" speech to Abbott "quite happy for them to be in the kitchen" spray.
Maybe it's the Catholic philosophy taking precedence.
Nuff said

.....right before she was about to be given the sack.

Come on SOPS, HID's uninformed opinions are always good for a bit of mirth and merriment just before bedtime. Leave him (her?) alone.

Don't need to anymore, he seems to have a banner next to his name

TA sworn in


Question for those ex military people.

The GG's female Army ADC was standing off to one side,
in the attention position but with her hands in the at ease
position (ie behind her back).

Anyone know why she wasn't either at Attention or at ease
instead of a bit of both ?

500, I don't know the answer, but I give you 10 out of 10 for attention to detail.

To be honest, I don't think anyone who has been in the Military ever loses it,
especially if they have been an instructor or NCO.

Just my HO.

FYI, the GG has 3 Female ADC's !!!
First time ever.

Well you can't say he is not a man of action. He was only in the job a few minutes, and he sacked 3 senior public servants.

The next few days might be interesting.

Wouldn't she be wearing a hat if she were properly standing to attention? Or doesn't that apply indoors?
I wonder if it's more the awkward 'I've got loads of cameras pointing in my direction' pose rather than a formal one. It looks similar to pics of uniformed government people at airports when a VIP turns up.

As for the public servants, as you say... Interesting times ahead. I imagine that a few departments may now feature on the Endangered Species list.

Worrals

Attention and Stand at ease are performed with or without a hat.

"uniformed government people" and the military are slightly different
but I am sure it is in a manual, drill or ceremonial somewhere.

The skirt is a bit creased as well

" the skirt is a bit creased as well"........ perhaps it is the content that is the cause.
Oh,b****r, I've gone all misogynist again.
