If this had been a) a Liberal and b) a male pollie, the airwaves would be in meltdown by now. Especially at the ALPBC :yuk:

Palmer United Party Senator Jaquie Lambie asks a 22 year old male "Are you well hung?" on Heart 107.3

And the fool is actually agreeing to a 'breakfast date'. How in God's name did we finish up with this PUPpet in the Senate for the next six years? :ugh:

I did laugh when I read that in the Age.

The mind boggles as to what goes through here brain.

Yeah had to cringe at that, you can hear it being said in all the smart London Clubs..."Sooo Australian, what".

Ye,s imagine a male Lib saying that, I'm utterly amazing at the breathtaking leftist bias of the Media, thing I've noticed, Isreali Pallestinian conflict, terrible situation, but, always always, pictures of Pallestinian woman and kids, Israli pictures, normally a shot of their impressive military hardware. Well to be frank, after 6 million of your population was taken out within living memory, good on them.

Why does Sarah HY get so much air time? Way way more than Scott Morrison, an Australian hero. Wouldn't be at all surprised if she came up on Brisbane Centre.

Sri Lanka and Mexico are officially at peace? So wake up all you Mexicans, all you have to do is claim to be refugees and you will be having tea on the White House lawn before you can say "I have no ID papers"!!

Agreed, and IME quite a number of lefty females are making that point on Facebook this arvo :8.
She's a moron.

500N 22nd Jul 2014 04:52

Sri Lanka is at peace now but I don't doubt that a lot of harassment still goes on of Tamils - and to be honest, some of the stuff you read does raise the eyebrows - killings, people not seen again.

BUT, what gets me is that how come they didn't leave when the war was on
but now want to leave during the peace ? (Apart from the obvious !)

Re Jackie Lambie's totally inappropriate comments (in damn near any company) on Tasmanian radio: the CEO of David Jones was forced to resign over something not nearly as crass and out of order as she was in this instance.

Surely to God an elected politician should be required to adhere to the same rules of behaviour as the senior executive of a major company. Is there a protocol for Parliament (in this case, the Senate) to make a binding finding that one of their number is not fit to hold office?

The woman is an embarrassment to this country in every possible way. She should be sacked and consigned to the welfare scrapheap she came from without delay.

Last week four members of the hierarchy at the B.B.C. were giving the press the news that there needed to be at least 25% of positions in the BBC filled by ethnic minorities so as to reflect the make up of the population of the British Isles.
All was going well until a member of the audience asked which of the four, white Anglo Saxon males was going to be replaced by one of the afore mentioned ethnic minorities.

bosnich71 22nd Jul 2014 06:02

500 .... "why didn't they leave when the war was on"?


Probably because they were still supporting the use of suicide bombers etc.etc. ... and they didn't have Rellies in Oz yet.

I just listened to the Australian Foreign Minister speak in the UN.

Impressive and has certainly stepped up in the world.

It took 4 days from start to finish to get that Resolution through
with unanimous support which even surprised me.

You're not wrong there..

Having that moron on welfare would be cheap, compared to what she and the rest of the PUP will cost everyday Australians as they act like kindergarten drop-outs. :mad:

Nope. Notwithstanding the whacky preference rules (which neither major party chose to reform when they had the chance), she was democratically elected.
Thanks, demos. :rolleyes:

Agreed. I thought she spoke really well.

So, as we predicted, this idiot is on his way back, and is going to walk free. Straight to a Centrelink office I would think.:*

WRT Senator Lambie's stated preference for the overly endowed gent, I see there has been no comment from the usual feminist spokespersons. Rather telling really.:hmm:

7x7 22nd Jul 2014 07:55

Re the increasingly unspeakable Jackie Lambie: just to point of the bleedin' obvious (to most of us, if not all), can you imagine the outcry from the likes of SHY and the ALPBC talking heads if a forty-something male politician (maybe, more correctly that should read a conservative male politician) as a guest on a radio show, asked a 22 year old female if she had big tits?

Worrals in the wilds 22nd Jul 2014 08:44

I think they're all pretty gobsmacked :eek:. There has been plenty of social media commentary, but you're correct wrt the traditional media. They need to speak up, but they probably won't, and even if they do they may not get quoted.

I would have been totally horrified if any male MP (whatever their political persuasion) had made remarks like that. Apart from anything else I think that whatever their gender a federal MP should speak with decorum and poise, rather than like an FM radio breakfast host. :ugh:Palmer himself is also pretty borderline with respect to this.

Guess we got the pollies we deserved. :sad:

500N 22nd Jul 2014 09:05

Well one female reporter has taken exception to the comments
and spoken about eh double standards.

Double-standards let Jacqui Lambie off the hook for inappropriate 'well-hung' comments

Imagine the outcry from the Professionally Outraged Left if some Senator* was to stand up and make a proposal that the Senate vote to find Senator Lambie unfit to remain a member of the Senate.

(*It goes without saying that he/she would have to be from the Coalition ranks, but it just might be possible for one of the Independents to fill the bill.) -

Worrals in the wilds 22nd Jul 2014 09:54

I've been thinking about Senator Lambie and you know what? She's not our problem. :}:cool:
She is a member of the PUP; a conservative party. A party started by a former member of the Queensland National Party (Joh's former press secretary), and in Australian politics it doesn't get much more conservative than that. :E

Us right wing/centralist lefties have spent years apologising for Senator Hanson-Young (and for good reason, there's been a lot to apologise for over the years :uhoh:) but ya know what? Senator Lambie is not Labor, Green or even a left-wing affliliated independent. She's a conservative, along with the rest of Palmer's motley crew. At this stage Labor is not willing to deal with PUP and I sincerely hope that remains the case, even if it looks tempting.

Your problem. :E:E:E

rh200 22nd Jul 2014 10:52

Worrals you Troll:p;) :)


She's a conservative
There's no chance in hell we are accepting that lot on our side. We'll accept here votes of course, when ever the chocolate wheel stops spinning and they give them to us.:ok:

Worrals; Ok, just how much of that bottle of Red have you had tonight?:D:ooh::E

You're in one of those mischevious moods again, aren't you?:D:ok:
