The political cancer of our time

G'day Possums,
I'm fuming a bit as you can's why.

Mal "Chicken Thighs" Brough has been told he will not get pre-selection for his seat  and has decided to quit politics.
Is that because the LNP in Queensland are aware that the Australian Federal Police will find that Chicken Thighs committed a criminal offence in asking Ashby to "lift" Slippery Pete's diary or are they just hiding their dirty laundry? And is this nasty piece of work who has historically always been seen on the fringe of corrupt practice (remember his little fracas with the false election leaflets in the 2007 election?) thinking the same or was he pushed?
Does any-one really care?
Last week it was Liarbril, Damien Mantach who admitted guilt for filching $1.5 Million from his own party which brings to some 22-25 people  the Liarbrils, State and Federally, who have either resigned or stepped down Australia wide in the past three years.

And these are the same people who said we needed to spend $80 Millions in a Royal Commission into alleged Trade Union corruption.
"Truffles" Turdball-Fop has just seen the sacking of a further 350 staff from CSIRO in a demonstration of what an innovation policy looks like. Add this to his support of $100,000.00 university fees and $30 billions cut from schools and you will have some idea his rank, venal duplicity.
He has also announced that although "Eleventy" Hockey doubled the deficit and present pretend treasurer "Scummo" Morrison who can't add up either, has told us  that there is no longer a budget emergency  so we can spend $ 150,000,000,000.00 on defence to ward off the Chinese at sea  who are busily buying up the country.
Perhaps we would be better buying back the farm or not wasting $15.4 million on a promotional scheme for the fossil fuel industry?
The Greens are about to shoot themselves in the foot by supporting a near fascist piece of legislation which will seriously disadvantage micro-parties from being elected to the Senate. In a move similar to the now defunct Democrats who supported the introduction of the GST and suffered a devastating voter backlash, Green's leader,  "Nit-wit" Natale is cosy-ing up to the Liarbrils and the self-serving independent from Adeleaide "Nick-the-Greek" Xenephon to hand the Liarbrils control of the Senate.
Truffles wants a double dissolution election to get control of the Senate well before the unemployment shit really hits the fan in 2017 when Toyota and Ford lay off some 50,000 workers and that swells to 100,000 as suppliers go to the wall and lay off their staff too.
For the Greens to be thinking that this incompetent rabble should have full power  is a good thing, beggars belief.
The para-military Border Farce SS  troops have expressed a desire to be equipped with Tazer guns. Just how this will assist at airports is any-one's guess . Perhaps they will be used like cattle prods when it gets very crowded?
Cory "Bestiality" Bernardi  and fellow homophobe from the Far Deep North, George "The Obese" Christenson have both been railing about an anti bullying program in State schools. The Obese one thinks it's a grooming ground for gays, Bestiality just goes angrily cross-eyed thinking about it and asks for an enquiry. They both were unfactually supported by Eric "Vichy" Abetz who said there had been many, many, many complaints from angry parents across the land. Turns out the was a complaint from a number of parents in one school.
Truth and "Vichy" rarely intersect.
But Truffles, lacking the balls to stand up to these right-wing nutters, accedes to the inquiry.
Which sort of fits in his making extreme right-winger, Andrew "Bruiser" Nikolic part of the intelligence committee. Perhaps he'll impress by wearing his red beret.
The Boerish characteristics of one Dennis Jensen from WA came to the fore when he opined that there should not be any specific funding or policies for indigenous Australians. This sits comfortably with his anti marriage equality and climate denier stances.
The ugliness of this IPA inspired ruling rabble is hideous to behold.  It is very hard to see how the country will survive the depredations being wrought every day.
Foul like Brough, aggressive like Nikolic, duplicitous like Turnbull, sleazy like Bernardi, bullying like Morrison, confused like Abetz, and plain racism of Jensen and ignorant attitudes like Christenson's are dragging this country so low that lowest common denominator now looks too high to achieve.
Hooroo petals.

PS a new definition: Liarbril:  a cancer of the political system.

Theatre of the Absurd

G'day  Petals,

We all went off to a rally recently. We were showing support for 230 refugees and their 37 babies who are about to be shipped back to the concentration camps on Nauru. Some of them have terminal illnesses and one young boy who was raped before coming here will be sent back to the same danger.

Head Public Servant Fascist Of Border Farce,  Mike Pelluzzo refused to answer questions in a Senate enquiry, instead, criticizing the media (particularly the ABC) as being advocates for activism.... Hmm.. pot calling kettle, black bum?
Here is a public servant displaying a completely partisan attitude. He should be sacked.
He was followed by the military who also refused to answer anything asked of them... hmmm... servants of the people or again, partisan activists for the ruling rabble? What seems certain is that the navy is breaching international boundaries in towing refugee boats back to Indonesia.

What a malignant ruling rabble.

Phillip Ruddock is to be Human Rights envoy to UN... this to the man that Amnesty International requested  not wear their badge after the "Tampa" criminality and the lies of the "Children Overboard" corruption. He's also the Attorney General who opined that sleep-deprivation wasn't torture.

Un-Environment Minister, Ozone-Hole Hunt has been awarded the inaugural Best Minister of Good Governance award. That it was in Dubai and that this incompetent has seen Australia increase its Carbon emissions by 1.3%  under his gormless lack of activity, has also allowed suspending protection to 1.3 Million sq km of marine park and dredging wastes to be dumped on the Great Barrier Reef, appointed a wind-farm Commissioner whose part-time work costs $205,000.00 and seen investments in re-newables driven down by 88%,  says much of its worth. 
Senator Scott Ludlum (Greens)  got it pretty right when he quipped that his mother had probably given "Ozone-Hole" the award.

Stuart Robert, Assistant Defence Minister is caught out  doing a fiddle for a Liarbril Party donor's business in China (one in which  has shares, btw) ... and is supported by Arfur "Da Spiv" Sinodinas.    Well, what else do you expect from some-one, who as treasurer of Liarbril fundraising  answered "I can't recall" 18 times to a Royal Commission into illegal fundraising?
And the press are being unusually quiet about the half dozen Liarbril pollies (including failed ex prime miniature, Rabid-the-Hun) accepting bribes of Rolex watches from Chinese Billionaires!
Hmmm if it had been Unionists there would be a Royal Commission called.

Then came the news that "Reboxetine" Robb is jumping ship and resigning at the next election to top up his parliamentary "super" by working for private industry.
Funny... I thought that's what he was doing with selling out our sovereignty in signing the TPP!
In an interview with Faine on 774, Rebox  told us what good shape his party is in and how wonderful the economy was..... as Faine later observed with Barry Cassidy, if it was the Labor Party brawling as the Liarbrils are doing at the moment it would be front page splashes... and all The Ugly American's rag's and "columnists" and commentators like Bolt, Devine, Hadley and Jones would be frothing at the mouth about disunity, lack of direction, turmoil and incompetence. 
And it's funny too how with the deficit doubled, unemployment about to soar and  trade terms woeful, Rebox thinks the economy is sailing along.... hmmm, delusional?
If this economy is good, then it must have been brilliant under Labor....and not the mess the Liarbrils continually said it was.

Remember when we were told that getting rid of the Carbon Pricing mechanism would make electricity prices would fall ? Well they have gone up 61% !

"Barnyard" Joyce has been made leader of the "Notionals." He who thinks Marriage Equality will harm our live Beef export trade with Asia and made a fool of himself  and the nation over-reacting to Depp's Dogs and who has spent over a million dollars in entitlements in 12 months, is now Deputy PM. He calls himself an Agrarian Socialist but supports free markets.  The circus that is the ruling rabble now has a new assistant clown!

See... it's Theatre of the Absurd...from Orwellian duplicity through the surrealist imaginings of Kafka to this!

The madness continues...

G'day Petals,

We took a little jaunt to Daylesford t'other day and did a sampling of the Mineral Springs there. It was very interesting that each of the five springs we sampled had different flavours and strengths .... some pics of the scenery follow.... the madness that continues...

 "According to The Age, there will be a new show (on tele?) for pollies, it will be an un-moderated “journalist-free zone”, with the two politicians independently setting the program’s entire agenda and deciding what topics to discuss. Pyne told Fairfax he wanted to ‘showcase his sense of humour’, and “go into the important issues in depth and communicate to the public our policy positions and the reasons for them” — you know, like a press conference, minus all the journalists -and any hard-hitting questions."  Which is really problematic as Chwissie-the-Whyne-and-Perfect-Prat-of-a-Prefect, Pyne has a sense of humour only an addled right wing conservative could understand and hasn't had a coherent policy stance since entering parliament 23 years ago.
Who needs the X -Files for a fantasy trip?
Speaking of fantasy trips...Rabid-the-Hun has gone to Murdoch-land to deliver a speech to a  group of xtian fascists who actually like that he stands for values that are not fair, inclusive or sympathetic.
 He was followed by Captain Catlic, "Medieval" Andrews who was attending a "prayer-Meeting" in Washington rather than doing his duty as an elected representative here in Oz.

As both are attending right wing fundamentalist religious hate groups, one wonders whether they should be gaoled on return to Oz as they would like to do  to those who go away and fight for ISIS.

Any hope that Malcon "Truffles" Turdball-Fop can be trusted finally went out the window when it was announced that CSIRO is to lose another 230 scientists from the climate modelling division; a unit regarded as one of the world's best, which leaves Truffles clarion call to innovation as tattered as is his bowdlerized tin can and copper wire broadband scheme. Then on "Insiders" he trots out the same B/S of stopping-the -boats, (all 23 of them), never mentions that we are paying the people smugglers to turn around and take them back and supports the incarceration of children in concentration camps. What a monumental bore... loquacious pap dribbles from his mouth every time he opens it! 

It never ceases to amaze me that the only thing these mongrel Liarbrils are good at, (besides lining their own pockets) is destroying things!

In 21/2 years there has not been a single positive policy outcome that has benefited the nation and now they are promoting the "reform" of the tax system by which they mean hiking the GST up by 50%!

There is not one single thing they have done which was part of a policy agenda put before the people at the last election. In their typically shambolic fashion the ruling rabble just keep putting  forward IPA thought bubbles in place of real policy that would benefit the nation and its future.

As Shorten has said of Truffles and the ruling rabble: ".... they talk a lot but they don't make decisions..." The relief of not having Rabid-the-Hun stirring up hate, fear and loathing is being superseded by a similar Kafka-esque quality of fantasy in that Truffles keeps talking but says nothing.

And aping Trump the Frump... Senator David Leyonhjelm opined on Truffles popularity that .." He could probably threaten to kill you first-born and still get elected."  Loopy Leyonhjelm certainly has a way with words....
tree roots
We're off to a rally tomorrow about the concentration camps we are running for refugees and their children.... it will be interesting to see if it's mentioned in the MSM or whether the  Border Farce SS storm troopers will attend, too.
What a country we've become.

Hoo-roo, Possums,
