All of a sudden, I feel a little less enthusiastic about returning to work after the short xmas break. Very disappointing.

Yeah, I don't know either.
What is it? - Greed, stupidity or a beautiful coming-together of both?

I've lived in Sydney's Eastern Suburbs nearly all my life.
The pretentious poonces who've been tripping over each other to move in here are, quite frankly, painful.
They combine both of the abovementioned qualities to the point where I've decided to take the ridiculous amount of money
I've been offered for my property and retire to a safe distance.

Gotta be somewhere near an airport, though.

I wait with bated breath for SHY and the usual suspects' reaction to this:

No Cookies | dailytelegraph.com.au

NO contraception, no dole – that’s the view of an ex-Labor Minister who believes welfare should be linked to compulsory contraception.

Teen dies after a train severed both legs when he fell asleep on tracks after celebrating his 18th birthday | Daily Mail Online

I could be wrong, but the fact that there is no names or receipt ions of the offenders, seems to speak heaps.

It does seem odd, but there are any number of reasons. It does seem strange that the boy's father would be obstructing efforts to help his son, though.

Top secret Cabinet documents from the Hawke government years up to 1989 released. It will be interesting to see if the events commonly - and incorrectly - known as "the pilots' strike" feature in these documents and if they change anyone's perceptions of those days.

I just had a laugh when I read that Tony Dum Dum claims to have been a good sledger
Maybe someone needs to explain to him that standing with your mouth wide open, looking like moron trying to think of something to say is not sledging.

Fubaar,
Yes, that's going to be interesting, innit?

Ethel,
It's not often I agree with your posts but that observation is spot-on.
The guy's supposed to have been a barrister, for gawsake!

There's a scandal sheet in Canberra called Vexnews, until recently edited by Andrew Landeryou, a political blogger from the Labor Right. Of Vexnews, it has been said: "The overwhelming majority of what Landeryou prints is vague rumour, personal vendettas and outright fiction. Very occasionally, though, some actual facts sneak through."

Landeryou doesn't like Sarah Hanson-Young, apparently. I don't have much time for her either, so anyone else who feels the same way may enjoy this bit of scuttlebutt from Vexnews, which elsewhere describes SHY as 'a former Goth now Christian business-class-flying cougar-queen':

"I can vouch for SHY being a real go-er at the Kennedy Room [a bar in Canberra]. As she drinks more vodka Red Bulls she becomes more aggressive – like a female praying mantis who seeks to bite the head off her mate after copulation.

SHY doesn’t leave anything to chance in her quest to add another notch to her wiccan stick. She thrusts her heaving bosom into men's elbows and hands, rubs her ‘big mama’ butt into their groins and behaves more like someone at a fat hookers' convention than an Australian senator."

Lovely!

Sounds all primed and right for a young conservative male to take one for the team and do a "Bussell" Turning her into an independent though vigorous a "non vegetarian diet of sausage" would be even more of a legend status than Busswell.

On to a topic perhaps just a tad less salacious, (OMG, can any man ever be so drunk to slip into dog-becomes-a-fox mode with SHY as the object?), I see that the PC Brigade are demanding that the ADF recruit more Muslim soldiers, sailors and airmen into its ranks.

Will we have to wait long before there are demands from Muslim 'community leaders' for Muslim-only units? Not too long, I'd hazard a guess. The mind boggles at some of the possibilities...

Yes, I can see it now, Muslim only units, fully equipped and operational, (the PC brigade wouldn't allow it any other way), as soon as the sh*t starts to fly they will decamp to the opposition, complete with equipment, frequencies, codes for the week. Thinking about it, don't even need Muslim Only units for that to happen, just a few well placed 'sleepers'. Indeed the mind does boggle.


(In my young days, as a soldier, SHY would have been classified as a 'Mercy F*&%').

I'm from SHY's home town, and the word on the street is that she has the scalps of a retired 69 year old federal Liberal MP and a slightly younger senior Fairfax journalist on her belt.

But enough of salacious gossip! The poor woman should be judged on her political performance...

‘Hot Copper’ Australian’s largest stock market forum:
Ralf Schumann, December 31, 2014:

“Today your odds are 3 out of 4 that the chicken, lamb or beef you buy in Australia died at the hands of a Muslim male, throat-slitting the creature while dedicating the animal to his Allah. Your chances with beef are a little better, but chicken, lamb or goat are between 80% and 100% halal certified. Sharia-compliant meat from halal-certified abattoirs is now everywhere - and in most cases sold unlabelled. If you doubt these figures just ask your butcher, or write to the Australian Meat Industry Council.”
Makes you feel all warm and fuzzy, doesn't it?

Turned on the TV this morning and found someone from the 'Meeja' querying whether Mr. Monis was a "Lone Wolf". Now that makes me "feel all warm and fuzzy".

Good enough reason to stick to pork chops I reckon.

Copied this (below) from the Morning Mail site where there's an article about the ship load (~700+?) of mostly Syrian immigrants rescued by the Italian Navy after they were abandoned by the crew bringing them to Europe.

I’ve been saying for quite some time that if labor ever get back into power (and maybe even before that), it’s only a matter of time before some enterprising individual gets his hands on a very large bulk carrier or old passenger liner and loads it up with 5,000 or even 10,000 would be immigrants and cruises in in through Sydney Heads and anchors off the Opera House steps.

Handled with the professionalism we have come to expect from the people smugglers, imagine the media circus that would ensue. Facebook and every MSM outlet flooded with photographs and videos of doe-eyed pre-pubescent females and heart-breaking stories of what their lives will be unless every one of the people on the ship is accepted immediately into Australia.
In this PC-dominated world, it would be difficult for even the most hard Right government to turn them away, particularly if the people smugglers scuttled the ship in Sydney Harbour.

Imagine Ian Rintoul and Sarah Hanson-Young’s “interviews” on camera.

MTOW ....been done already, although on a smaller scale, remember Coffs Harbour.

bos, I was living out of the country at the time of the Coffs Harbour 'invasion', but I remember it, as it made the news in the Sandpit.

I seem to remember that the Chinese gentlemen in question turned up at random places along the highway near Coffs in dark business suits and attache cases - which, if the aim was fit in unobtrusively in Coffs, was the equivalent of a bearded Mulla wearing a thong bikini in the hallowed halls of the Vatican.

It only took 40 bloody years after Whitlam that something's been finally done.

The tough new Australian welfare laws

I also see ACOSS are just as loony as ever.
