Wombat Droppings or Low-Down politics in Oz
Taking a leaf out of the late Adolph Hitler’s modus-operandi from May 2, 1933: “We must close union offices, confiscate their money and put their leaders in prison. We must reduce workers salaries and take away their right to strike”.
“Rabbott-the-Hun” has instituted another Royal Commission into the unions rather than waste money assisting Oz’s debilitated manufacturing and agricultural sectors. This double pronged attack on workers wages and conditions and the viability of the Unions involved allegedly has been applauded by our biggest miner Gina “What Munificience” Rinehart who thinks that “Work-for-the-Dole” is too generous and should be adjusted back to C18th levels and Janet “Hisssss I never buy canned fruit anyway” Albrechtson agreed.
“Rabbott-The-Hun” also congratulated the 50,000 Toyota and ancillary manufacturing workers who have just been told that in two years they can apply for “Work-for-the-Dole” having been relieved of the stress of working 40 hours a week. “For um, every um, job that’s um, lost”, haltingly intoned “Rabbott”, “a new um better one will um replace it…um, a better one will replace it” Failing to specify just what these jobs will be, fewer and fewer seem to be taking him seriously.
Nikki Savva, once a minor apparatchik on the parochial Melbourne “Hun” and since elevated to the national sphere with “The Australian” (although this has made no difference to the quality of the tripe she has on sale), recently opined that Julie “Death Stare” Bishop is doing a wonderful job in foreign affairs because she has a dazzling smile and such nice manners to most of those who agree with her and has single-handedly made the Indonesians so confused as to Australia’s real intentions; that the invasion, via life-boats full of missionary’s is a complete success.
That no-one really cares what Savva thinks is probably a good thing and that the audience for the Australian seems to disappearing faster than that of “illegal” refugees, is even better.

Casually employed Defence Minister, Senator David “Gunna” Johnston has finally surfaced from his tub after a lengthy round of submarines and upped periscope to pop-gun a broadside of invective at the ABC for reporting the news.
In the usual Liarbril, Orwellian version of truth, “Gunner” fulminated that the Navy had been “…. maliciously maligned…” for their actions in belonging to a White Supremacist Cabal and the brutal “Hazing” of other ratings. Their actions were carried out, he said, “…in a fully professional manner,” as were all other issues with hot pipes or inadvertently lost situations without the lights on. On stamping his foot for dramatic effect, “Gunna” slammed it onto the soap which causing him to slip whilst losing his towel and he fell backward, back into the bath.
This timely salvo diverted some attention from further investigation of Prime Miniature, “Rabbott-the-Hun’s” and Eric “Vichy” Abetz’s loose grasp on the facts of workers’ entitlements at SPC and allowed “Rabbott” time to meet his IPA bosses and other business constituents and to find out what to do next in his crusade on the dismemberment of civil society.
Non card carrying Liarbril and IPA (The-Coots-With–Queer-Ideas-From-A-Parallel-Universe) member, Timmy “Twat” Wilson, new commissioner designate of Speech Free of Leftist Bias, announced on his final interview on ABC with Jon Faine (and before the “Coot’s” have their way and the ABC is sold to “The Ugly American,” Murdoch) that he will be hosting regular IPA
propaganda, re-education, damnit education, information sessions on Community radio
stations around OZ. When asked on talkback if the other commissioners would
have the same opportunity he evasively replied that “…there was nothing to stop
them…” and was rather shy of detailing if they would have as much opportunity
as he has been “offered” to proselytise with his always abundant words spouting
forth (which are essentially just ideas of the moment running around in his
head replicating those of his faceless backers) in the quest to impose
fundamentalist aspirational economic “values” on all of society for the benefit
of the few.
Never quiet, never uncertain of his “right” and never reflective of the social damage that his “rightness” imposes by the subjugation of 90% of us to serfdom, Timmy “Twat” will be one to watch in his $330,000.00 p.a. sinecure.
The Till Eulengspiegel of Tardis State (Where-All-Goes-Backward) politics and de- facto Premier, ex-Liarbril, now Independent, Geoff “Fiddles” Shaw has been up to his merry pranks again, re-arranging the legislative program that Pretend-Premier, Dennis (Inutilis Rusticus) Naptime hoped to have in place before the public’s planned March Revolution. In an effort to save Tardis State citizens’ time and effort, “Inutilis Rusticus” is planning to ban pickets, rallies and demonstrations so that there is no reason to leave home. He apparently has not yet decided on the (allegedly) IPA suggestion to limit potentially subversive conversations on FaceBook by allowing only one contact per week with only one other, which has to be conducted in Yoruba and without benefit of Google translate.
Pretend-Premier Naptime has also instituted a Courts Martial of all Liarbril Munchkins to de-frock “Fiddles” and ban him from manifesting his idiosyncratic personality in Parliament. Asked if he thought the ban on public meetings and the de-frocking of “Fiddles” un-democratic, “Inutilis Rusticus” replied that it was a natural development of a process to keep things simple and that it had been quite effective in parts of Europe in 1933.
The Labor Party was not available for comment as they were all out, looking for their Federal leader.
