The Winter of our Discontent

Winter is coming
Winter is coming
The Winter of our Discontent is upon us...
we have the worst Prime Miniature, The worst Treasurer, the worst minister for the environment, the worst defence minister, the worst health minister, the worst immigration minister and the worst attorney general ever in this country's history. What a 21/2 year achievement by these "adults"!

Sophie "Pit-Bull" Mirabella has elbowed her way into the spotlight again, not just in a physically assertive manner only but in stating publicly that $10 millions had been with-held from a hospital upgrade because she didn't win her seat! Here's a woman who equates pork-barrelling with good governance! "Pit-Bull" I think, has just blown, at least another 5%off her chances of winning that seat back.
This is the sort of political corruption we see too often!
But then, it's a helluva lot cheaper than $50 Billions on submarines to save Chwissie the Whyning Pyne and Perfect Prat of a Prefect's seat.
 But having loudly celebrated the deal with the French DCNS company, (and ...can they do deals ... just ask Malaysia, China and Pakistan) later, it was quietly announced that a $1/2 Billion contract for an Ice-breaker had gone to a Dutch shipbuilder leaving another 2000 Australian's unemployed. 
Bye-Bye Chwissie, that just sank you!
Federal police have ratcheted-up their investigation into whether "Chicken-Thighs" Brough carried out a criminal act in having "Fiddles" Ashby purloin "Slippery" Petes diary entry's from his boss. 
As Chwissie the Whyning Pyne is also involved in this little piece of probable illegality, in the words of the "Two Ronnies'" "It's Goodbye from me and it's good-bye to him!"
Arfah "Da Spiv" Sinodinas  is also in the news again for all the reasons of the right . He's declined an invitation to tell a Senate inquiry just what he knows about political donations to the Liarbril Party. This is very reasonable of him, as he "..couldn't remember.." on 50 occasions (at the corruption hearings in NSW) when as honorary treasurer for Liarbril fundraising, who laundered what with whom. So what could he possibly tell the Senate?
Hot on the heels of the "innovative" sacking of 200 or so Climate scientists from CSIRO because, as their rather rabid boss says, "The science of Climate Change is settled and rather than investigating what is happening, it's time to make solutions."  Senator Bookshelves Brandis  and Senator Princess Fiona of Nash have decided it's not at all settled  or proven, so as well as being bigots they have a perfect right to limit any solution to what they see is not a problem. Which ties in rather well with "Truffles" Turdball and "Shaddupaya Face" O' Dwyer's united stance against "Little-Willie-Shortstuff" Shorten's idea of winding back negative gearing. In a comprehensive fear campaign, one says it will raise house prices the other that they will fall!  All bases covered on that one!

Another shock for "Truffles" and his Anti-Immigration Minister "Do-Do" Dutton was the PNG Supreme Court ruling that our Concentration Camps on Manus Island are not legal and the PNG PM has ordered that they be closed. Coming as it does after the deaths in two weeks of an Iranian inmate by self immolation and the protracted death of another from Sepsis (from inadequate care and follow up of a cut on the leg), the ruling rabble are looking decidedly wobbly as their IPA inspired malevolence unravels.
Although, this time, when they say "'s all Labors fault.." there's some truth in that and as a country we need quickly to find our collective conscience again and stop trashing the brand we once had.
"For ideologues, reality runs a long last to dogma, even when reality is biting you on the back side." (New Matilda)

"Scummo-The Innumerate" Morrison is stridently spruiking what many think will be his once and only budget.  I can not think of a time when having so effectively blown away the economy they have to produce something that will actually work for the country not just their business backers and because of their own foolishness there is little to work with and everyone is looking this time. All the Liarbril hubris over what fine economic managers they are is going to seen in the correct light for a change... everyone will see that the Emperor has no clothes. I'm just wondering Petals, whether Scummo will deliver his once and only in "Tongues" with his addled acolytes behind him Happy-Clapping "I've got plenty of Nothing"?
Don't take my word for it:
The ruling rabble, becoming nervous that there's widespread support for a RC into the banking sector has decided to put back the money they took out of ASIC and has said the banks would pay for it. In best hypocritical mode, Scummo "The Innumerate" proclaimed that he would be not chuffed if the banks handed the bill for this back to the customers because "....we'se here at the ruling rabble rooly, rooly care about all youse Hillsong peasants out there and we want to get elected again." Making it seems, no visible smirk when it was suggested that the banks paying for the body investigating their corruption was more akin to placing the Fox in charge of the Hen house, he attempted to divert further questions  saying, "Well, it's all Labor's fault anyway!"
Rabid-the-Hun has had a televised Tête-à-Tête with his main cheer-squad "Blot-on-the Landscape" Bolt. Bolt talked of the Abbott Era: those who listened thought he said, "Error"  Anyway an era is a long time and it's hard to justify Rabid's 18 months of incompetence as an Era.... although it certainly felt like it. Rabid said his works would be remembered. Yes, his bogan attitude, small minded, right wing Catlic conservatism, lack of compassion and mindless slogans, and destruction of an egalitarian society will be difficult to forget.
It's hard to know whether the end of the Roman Empire was like this or is it more reminiscent of Hitler's Bunker in May '45 but the sense of Ship of State being not only rudderless and heading in the wrong direction but foundering, is hard to shake.
The country is ethically moribund ... the cancerous IPA agenda has done its stuff..... perhaps radical excision will be of benefit.

Off to Hell in a Hand-Basket

Shane in a Hellish Hand-Basket

G'day Possums,

It seems appropriate that the illustrations for this weeks rant are of a cemetery given that parliament is soon to sit again and where the ruling rabble will be attempting to push the country further into the hell of its "Coot's-With-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe" (IPA) masters right-wing ideological fantasies.

Unfortunately for the ruling rabble, Willie Shortstuff has stolen a march on their rabid designs by calling for a Royal Commission into the corruption, perfidy and malfeasance that has been brought to a peak of perfection by our banks. Denying that it was at all necessary, the front-runners of this mongrel lot, Cash "the Harpy," "Truffles" Turdball-Fop, "Sco-mo" Morrison, The Innumerate" and many others of similar untalented mien have all been opining that notwithstanding the $120,000,000.00 slashed from ASIC and the 4000 jobs eliminated from ACCC and the tax office, these bodies are perfectly capable of investigating any "situation" that may or may not have occurred and anyway the public are just not interested in this sort of political enquiry..... although a recent poll suggests that 83% of the population thinks it's a terrific idea.

Timing his latest Union-Bashing bashing for this last sitting before he calls a double dissolution election, "Truffles" was again discomforted by the leaking of all a Panama Banks documents about who had what, where and how much was hidden from the tax man. It made the supposed corruption of the construction unions fade into insignificance and "Truffles" had to dodge some probing questions into his Cayman Island accounts.

Move along now, nothing to see here.  Remember sheeples, Coal is good for humanity.... and Peabody has gone belly up and climate change is crap....  and if marriage equality is legislated we'll next want bestiality realised!

Princess Fiona of Nash has deemed that a sugar tax on soft drinks is a bad idea....and that an increase in tobacco tax a better health strategy.  Remember when this rabble was first elected, one of her "advisers" as assistant health minister was a bloke with strong representations to the Junk Foods business and the Princess was trying to scuttle Labor's new food labelling legislation?
Well it seems that the Princess is having another junk food moment. It transpires that Princess Fiona of Nash has been called un-scientific by a Brit Medico in that more harm is done to our health from over-use of sugar in our diets and than by the uses of tobacco and alcohol combined!
Well done, Princess Fiona. You have maintained the appalling scientific standards of your ruling rabble at a truly medieval level.

When the election is called and "Truffles" and the rest of the clowns in his circus Mk2 will all be claiming what good economic managers they are.... in its short life the Liarbril ruling rabble has levied more tax as a proportion of GDP than Labor did. Government spending as a proportion of GDP has also increased, the budget deficit has more than doubled from its “crisis” levels in 2013, and gross government debt has ballooned by over $100bn.....and let's not forget their assiduous rorting of their parliamentary benefits. The bluff and bluster was resurrected when "Sco-Mo, The Innumerate" recently tweeted: “Labor’s plan is to tax, spend and borrow. Our plan is to back Australians who are working, saving and investing.” He could tell that to the 300 scientists sacked from the CSIRO in an "Innovative" method for  doing research
How are we to rationalise the abolition of the office of the disability discrimination commissioner and the appointment of the first national wind farm commissioner? The elimination of a key role to assist the large number of people with disabilities and their families, many of whom live below the poverty line and struggle with endemic disadvantage, followed by the creation of a new role to address a syndrome that doesn’t existOne of the first notable and ominous acts of the ruling rabble MK 1 was, in fact, an omission – the first government in over 70 years not to appoint a science minister. Since then, the country’s peak scientific research body, the CSIRO, has responded to funding cuts by shedding scientists like dead skin. A world renowned research program into climate change has been ditched.
.Against this background of attacks on scientific research and the debacle that is the country’s major innovation and infrastructure project, the NBN, "Truffles" announced a new innovation policy.... an advertising campaign costing $20,000,000.00.
And let's not speak any further of this mongrel pack's plans for health and education... it's all similar: user pays. What was once a fair and egalitarian nation has become and if the mongrels are returned to power, will continue to slide further into an abyss of greed, selfishness and ultimately civil strife that we have never seen before.... dark days ahead.

But let's finish on one bright note: Old "Kero Bath-Chopper" Bishop has lost preselection for her safe seat of Mackellar.  And so it's good riddance to an incompetent minister, unconscionably partisan speaker, rorter extraordinaire, and vicious senate enquirer.
May the karma of evil she created return and stay with her for the rest of her sour and sorry days in the hate-filled silence she deserves.

Hoo-roo Petals,
