In Liu of Integrity

G'day Possums,
"How good is Gladys?" The Hypocritical Happy-Clapper, Liar from the Shire and Pentacostal prime miniature du jour celebrated loudly on his surprise election win.
How good indeed?
Well, not very, as we shall see as she was quickly elevated to a status as one of the newest members of The Ruling Rabble to be in company as worthy as Rolex Roberts, Barnyard Joyce, Water-gate Taylor, Little-to-be-Proud-of and Landlord Ley: all due in part to this woman's dubious in the extreme connections to the Chinese Communist Party.
(Pics hopefully, are apposite to the written content)

Touted as "...an energetic member of her local community..." but unfortunately not specifying which "community", Australia or mainland China, Ms Liu spent almost as much time attempting to gain pre-selection to the Ruling Rabble as it took to build The Great Wall, along the way becoming a very significant fundraiser for the Rabble with some very interesting "friends" only too willing to shell out much moolah for what seemed very little return. 
But what has piqued the interest of some, particularly ASIO is the number and type of Chinese organizations like the Guangdong provincial chapter of the China Overseas Exchange Association - which at the time was part of China's powerful State Council, the Chinese government's central political and administrative body as well as dozen or more other entities involved in trade and cultural pursuits which Beijing uses to promote and leverage their interests.
"Nothing-to-see-here.." roared The Not-so-Happy-Clapping  Scummo as he mangled the truth in defence of his new chosen one, (or is that a two seat majority?) St Peter-like, thrice denying that he's been as racist as he was accusing others as being by calling disgraced Too-Tricky Dastyari, "Shanghai Sam"... ever, at all, nup, not me, noooooo ... look-over -there,look-over -there!
 
  On The Edge.
On The Edge.
Ms Liu's oddly twisted face, (it looks, front-on as if it's in single point perspective. The sight lines of eyes and mouth disappearing off at an angle to the appropriate "left" horizon at infinity) crumpled into tears in parliament at Scummo's blustering vindication of her rather tainted character. 
A character besmirched not only by her associations but more importantly by her woefully dishonest and lying political advertising which will be the subject of a High Court ruling which just might nullify her 1000 vote election win and make the pentacostal Scummo poop himself. Another Engadine moment?

As a corollary to what Scummo would say is this "racist" rant, it's interesting to note that the Chinese wish to purchase for $1.5 Billion a Tassie powdered Milk business. Having near sent it to the wall by pulling trading stunts it will now offer money to get what it wants and the Chinese will no longer need aggressive syndicates to strip supermarket shelves of baby formula to export back to the mainland.
Let's hope too, that the Foreign Investment Review Board has not been as bowdlerized by The Ruling Rabble as other judicial bodies as to be inadequate to its task.
 
The Inevitable Angel
The Inevitable Angel
Corruption is rife in this land, integrity as we used to know it has all but vanished, the MSM looking the other way is too quiet; the ABC has effectively been neutered as the only main source of reliable news and analysis; there is no political opposition to speak of, the Federal Police are tainted politically and the judiciary suspect.
The Born-Again's, and the ideological IPA believe Armageddon is inevitable and they're going to get it via climate change but with the stupidity of The Rabble pretending to lead what is a supine and selfish nation into a period of dissolution we have never experienced before it all has all the auguries for the demise of this country as we have known it.

Perhaps Petals, I should make a sandwich-board with "The End is Nigh" emblazoned across it and March on Canberra?
Hoo-roo,
Shane.
PS, Mrs Wombat and I  visited a few more exhibits from the Photo Biennale in 
Ballarat.... and sadly, it only confirmed first impressions.
