It’s been quite cold around the burrow this past week as the pics will show and some more images from Queenscliff and
Wombat droppings; the chronicle of this Wombat's country's demise and of it becoming nothing more than a hole in the ground provider of raw material to the lowest bidder.
There is a tourist rail line at Queenscliff and this pretty little 0-6-0 Tank Engine is one of the workers. Built in Kilmarnock, Scotland in 1919 by Andrew Barclay and Son's Caledonia Works its name Pozieires resonates this August in memory of the conflict begun today 100 years ago.
As I said it has been cold...
Slippery Pete, remember him? Well he was finally found guilty of defrauding the Commonwealth of around $1,000.00.
As a dish best served cold, revenge is what the Liarbrils excel at…it is wonderful how they, Caligula like, eat their bastard offspring.
Of course “Rabbutt-the-Hun’s” rortings various of nearly $100,000.00 from the public purse was allowed to be paid back, incurring no penalties once the “error” was made known….ahhh, the age of entitlement…not yet ended...... let’s not look at their air-fares either!
Although it’s odious to compare human suffering, between “Rabbutt-the-Hun’s” reaction to MH17 and the recent reports of life, in particular the children’s on Christmas Island there is an appallingly large gap.
It’s a bit of an ask to play the “statesman hero” for sending children mad.
Julie “Death Stare” Bishop whilst basking in the praise coming her way for her mostly sober demeanour in her handling of the MH17 murders has been silent on a number of other fronts, not just “… Labor’s extravagant UN Security Council bid… has distracted from core foreign policy interests…” Which she babbled about back in 2010 but a position that is now giving her a platform of some gravitas.
She has been silent on Gaza, the piracy by Morrison of the 157 Tamil asylum seekers, the death in detention on Manus Island of Reza Barati and has said nothing about Australia’s flouting of International law.
It is interesting to note that Peter ”Rottweiler” Reith and Andrew ”Blot-on-the-Landscape” Bolt both thought that the shooting down of MH17 “…was a positive for Abbott.”
Liarbril charm at work again.

The saddest part of "Rabbutt-the-Hun's" sycophant's over-strident extolling of his "leadership" on MH17 was just that, their pathetic stridency.
His first 10 months Prime Miniature-ial performance has been so abysmal that anything that looks like coming within coo-ee of a normal person's response is deemed worthy of the most fulsome, ranting praise. If anyone needed a clearer example of the metaphor of the "Emperor having no Clothes", then this episode must be it.
It is also a sad but timely reminder that institutionalised cruelty to refugees is a bi-partisan activity primarily led by a nation whose core values are those of the selfish Aspirational Bogan. Liarbrils led by the IPA, rejoice in there being no social contract and Labor hasn’t the balls to stand up to the Murdoch fuelled Bogans with real leadership.
It is difficult to see a happy future for this selfish, myopic, divided country.
A couple who had paid a Thai surrogate $16,000.00 to bear them a child, on discovering that one of the twins born had “Down’s Syndrome” decided to return to Oz with only the “good” one. Baby as commodity… not 100%? Leave it in Thailand….Selfish Aspirational Bogans?
“The Ugly American” Rupert “Phone-Hack” Murdoch’s rag in Oz “The Australian” was working itself into a righteous lather because they allege a left wing group, “New Matilda”, hacked into the computers of design school to get info on Frances Abbott’s dodgy scholarship … No-one’s sure if they were just miffed at being copied in their info gathering techniques or just pissed-off that they hadn’t done it first.
Senator Erich”Vichy” Abetz has had everyone, including the Business Council of Australia, rolling in the aisles with the floating of yet another brainless and unworkable theoretical thought bubble from “The Coot’s–With-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe,” (IPA). This one had the 700,000 unemployed making 40 job applications a month for the 165,000 jobs available.
Abetz saw nothing idiotic in this.
Neither did John Roskam, Head Plonker at the IPA. He thought it socially responsible and that $0.50 per hour would be a good pay rate, too.
La-la, la-la, La-la, La-la, Laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa.
And let’s not mention their “ideas” for higher education…. or Health … or shipbuilding, …or cars… or alternative energy… or environment… or law…or financial rectitude or industrial relations because that way only invites deep depression.
The Tardis State “Where-All-Goes-Backward” is rolling along Grand Prix like (around in circles) toward an election…offering to bring in legislation (possibly in the near future or by “The Rapture”, whichever comes first) banning outdoor smoking in eating areas. The Liarbrils had voted this down a year ago because a ”Green” had thought it up.
Louise “Dozy” Asher woke long enough for the Grand Prix contract re-signing to give Bernie Ecclestone and Ron Walker, Squillions of dollars of taxpayer monies to pollute the air and ears around Albert Park for another five years thus keeping the Bogans sated and not thinking about the $8,000,000,000.00 Tunnel to No-Where without a business plan they are going to pay for.
Pretend Premier Dennis “Do-Do” Naptime, (Genus: Inutilus Rusticus), has been kissing horses for their birthdays hoping they will vote for him and forgetting that this Vet thinks Jumps Races, are a good thing like shooting protected wild-life and clear-felling forest to make bushfire so much more devastating…..
“Do-Do” is also proclaiming “We have a Vision, Liarbril Good, We have a Vision…. Labor,Bad ” a lot!
It might be looking backward but you have to concede…. it is a vision… isn’t it?
