MTOW, one time, a long time ago I was sent to a place and carried a rifle with other blokes and had to kill other humans.

In the years since I have not felt the need to carry a weapon. Now in 2015 I feel the need in my own country.

How ironic the lefty thing, if it had been this man. they would have the most enormous head fvk as I am mixed - Papuan, German,Warlpiri (western desert), English, and either Chinese or Japanese. The Chinese Japanese confusion is due to both being in Rabaul

Time will tell who's right in this debate. I'd like to see the world in 50 years. I wonder what it will be like?

Article in today’s Australian saying that European politicians have seen the way the wind is blowing with their very unhappy electorates and they’re talking about sending many asylum seekers back.

The article says that the Norwegian are taking those who have not been accepted from Oslo back to the far north, handing them a bicycle similar to the one many of them used to treadle over from Russia and pointing them in the direction of the Russian border.

Imagine the outcry if an Australian government did something similar with the 50,000 Rudd/Gillard let in.

Said outrage would be completely justified because: 1/ do you know how far it is to Russia from here?, and 2/, how expensive would 50,000 amphibious bicycles be?

Well, well, well, everybody ... Happy New Year!

I guess to start the year off, Malcolm's been heard to say that he's not been able to find a suitable portfolio for Tony.
It seems there are more deserving and capable contenders for whatever vacancies may be coming up.
Aww dear!

Even worse, there's not even a knighthood for him from the poms (in return for knighting the Queen's Consort) in their years honours list.
Aww dear!

C'mon then Mal, how about appointing him Lord High Commissioner to the Court of St James or somesuch?
Anything to get him out of our sight. (Pleease?)

The Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption's John Dyson has announced his findings.
(Wipe your mouth John, there's still some gravy there.)
Good!

I'm pretty sure nobody's surprised at all.
It had to be done. It's been going on for way too long - and blatantly so.
Who do they think they are ... politicians?

Oh, and poor old Mal Brough - after kicking and squealing for so long, he finally had to fall on his sword.
Aww dear.

Any predictions for this year, any insights, any clues, anybody?

Stan ...."any predictions for this year"?
How about a continuation of sarcasm from the usual suspects.

The Libs will stick true to form and do their usual - snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

As MTOW says, as the year progresses towards the election we will see the gradual melt down of Marshmallow Malcolm's little parliamentary club into a gooey mess and reality turn in to dreams.

After predicting the rise of Mal Truffle and the demise of the half wit Abbott I think first up the true facts of the Briggs bar debacle will be first of the ramp, closely followed by a cabinet reshuffle that will have the positive righties seething at the bit.

Shorten wins in a land slide? Not sure whether to or or perhaps and for a certain segment here abouts Think I've covered all options.

Briggsy alledgely sent a photo of his staffer to all his mates. That sounds a normal thing to do, bit like the WA chair sniffer. Dutton found to be lying about the raped asylum seeker girl and we are only three days into 2016
What distraction are they going to come up with next. DD maybe?

Oh Dear Ethel, No, Dutton has NOT been found to be lying, even the SMH say it is much disputed. Have you ever worked with Somalis Ethel? Some of the worlds most accomplished liars capable of manipulating any situation to their advantage. There are two sides to this story and you are promoting the lawyers and the alleged victims point of view. It was published some time ago and you possibly missed it, a chronological summary of all the events and it was very obvious that the said 'victim' was playing the game to see if she could engineer a permanent place in Australia, aided and abetted by the likes of SHY and a bunch of lawyers.

She's succeeded, hasn't she? I understand she's currently in Brisbane and too far gone to travel. So she will get her 'Aussie' anchor baby, who she'll have to stay with. Mission accomplished.

Hempy, an opinion piece from a cadet journalist ?..

Perhaps yer'd like one of Mariam Robins earlier efforts:

Abbott’s paid parental scheme is brilliant, and the arguments against it don’t stack up...

I figured most here would take some sort of offense at that article. The following quote is particularly relevant to most posters on here;

By September, Oz editor-in-chief Chris Mitchell had had enough and hit back at Bolt through his paper’s media section. “Bolt’s audience includes many conservative retirees whereas The Australian’s readership is younger, rich, better educated and working in legal, political or the business community,” he said by way of explaining why his paper had taken such different positions on such issues. “These people don’t read the Tele or Bolt.”
That's about the size of it.

It's not like you to be writing in support of a Murdoch rag, Hempy.
Is this a new leaf turning for 2016?

Cooda
Not young, not rich, not university educated but do work in the Business community and was once involved in politics.....and reads the Australian, and Bolt and Blair and Devine and Akermann and Fairfax and Farrelly and Ali and Crikey and Keane and...and...and...and the NT News.

PS. No offence taken at your republishing a puerile spat between pretentious journos. How can you take any of them seriously?

Hempy promoting the Australian newspaper...

Well, this barely literate hill farmer me with me limited grade 8 edumacation is obviously not the usual Oz newspaper reader.......... or perhaps Mitchell was being a bit fanciful with himself about the readership of 'His' Australian newspaper..



Meanwhile, our corrupt prime minister turnBull, trying to not apear to be even more hypocritical, comments:

"..Mr Turnbull said ... he would not hold an inquiry.
"These leaks inquiries, they tend to come up with very little," he said.

I think everybody understands that leadership requires us to lead by example,"

"The ministerial standards are very important. Australians expect their politicians, their leaders, to live up to those standards."
