The mirror's cracked and things are askew...


 
It's Time.



G'day Petals,
most of today's pics are from areas around the route of the present southern sections of the  "Tour de France," The Tarn and Aveyron, taken some four years ago.

Border Farce Commissioner, Roaming Quisling is on leave, being investigated for possibly being a very naughty boy.
Not for the fact that Border Farce incorrectly sent 2 Australian citizens to Christmas Island or that they stuffed up the raid on Victoria, or that journalists personal details were leaked or that the "darknet" is selling Medicare details and police ID online... but into his personal behaviour...Dodo Dutton, allegedly Immigration Minister was a Queensland cop too, so... "nuffin-to-see-'ere?"
As one wit noted, "Brothers-in-Harm?"
Shades of Mandy "Il-Patrone" Vanstone's  appalling ministerial history ... malevolent echoes of the wrongful imprisonment of Cornelia Rau and Vivian Solon. Ms Solon, also an Australian citizen, was wrongly deported to the Philippines in 2001 because immigration officials believed she was an illegal immigrant.
She was later compensated to the tune of $4.5 million.
But Mandy "Il Patrone" still gets to regularly proselytise her right wing political banalities on TV, radio and in the press.
 
The Devil, Death and Eve, Moissac.
Without any irony, a Brit  right-wing think-tank, the Policy Exchange, awarded Truffles Turdball their "Disraeli Prize"  for "...maintaining Australia’s non-discriminatory immigration program..."
Hmmm... that's gotta be up there in relevance to the environmental award to Ozone Hole Hunt!
Chairman of the Ruling Rabble's Climate and Energy Committee, Craig, Kok-Up Kelly announced that renewable energy costs will kill old people because they will not be able to afford to heat themselves this winter. "People will die".. he said, and should have added that, "...their deaths will have nothing to do with our cutting  the pensioners energy supplement," which was put in place by Labor to compensate for the carbon tax.
 
Church, Oradour-sur-Glane
In a moment of genuine humour, failed politician and ex prime-miniature, Tony Rabid-the-Hun, Abbott said after his latest fantastical and egotistical outburst to a small band supporters in what looked to be a beer-hall  that: “The last thing I want to do is be difficult.”
Dominatrix, Bloody Idiot Credlin was in furious support of her best client agreeing; and as the Madam of allegedly the best political brothel in Canberra, also provided sorely needed relief to host, Blot-on-the-Landscape, Bolt by describing (accurately for once), the Ruling Rabble as: “little men with soft, soft backbones, no ticker, no heart and no soul”..... and I don't really think she meant their souls!
Irritated by this dissension taking HIS coal powered limelight in denying climate change and that renewables actually work, Fictions Frydenberg plopped in to observe that Rabid's chewing on Truffles is only going to result in Willy Shortstuff coming out the other end first!
Geez... always blaming Labor!
 
Oradour-sur-Glane
On a positive note, Philip Morris in losing its case has been billed the full cost ( $25 -50 Millions) of their appeal against the plain packaging legislation brought in by then health minister in the Gillard Government, Nicola Roxon which, since implementation, has resulted in dramatic falls in smoker uptake particularly amongst the young and teenagers.

St Cecile's, Albi

Another "own goal" costing business "bigly" by Le Jongleur Roskam's IPA who arguing against the public health interest pushed this appeal.  Geez... they're really bright these Coots-With-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe: with friends like that, who'd need enemies?

It tolls for thee....

G'day Petals,
A  Ms York, Liarbril delegate has said, "....would assume that special needs people would naturally gravitate towards Labor and I know that that's not true" telling the party's federal council that how-to-vote pamphlets should continue to be distributed at polling booths for people with low IQ's, as "they don't all vote Labor". Speaking against a motion to stop the distribution of how-to-vote material at electoral booths, she also said it was important to keep the papers with photographs "for elderly people, for people with low IQ, they don't all vote Labor".
 Proving once again that there's nothing like a misplaced sense of entitlement and superiority to accurately define ones attitude to society and that conservatives are not very bright.
Oohh.. a ruling rabble minion feeling the heat of impending climate doom?
Don Harwin, the energy minister of the NSW Coalition government, has made a dramatic departure from the bulk of his state and federal colleagues by declaring that it was time to move on from the notion of “baseload” power as essential to the reliability of the future grid and underlined the huge gap between right-wing "moderates" looking to embrace new technologies and the Ultra-right conservative Dinosaurs locked into servitude to the fossil fuel lobby and the C19th.
Chair, empty.
Chair, empty.

This was particularly interesting as his neighbour and federal colleague  in Warringah, Tony, Rabid-the-Hun, Abbott who, acutely feeling a lack of limelight, relevance and that his "mission" of returning Australia to the Dark Ages was incomplete, began yet another tilt at again becoming the worst Prime Minister Australia has ever had.
Lashing out at all around him and delivering his nihilistic "Manifesto" from a sheltered IPA (The Coots-With-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe) workshop in the Deep North, Rabid declared in a Nayaa-Na, Na-Na, Yaaa moment that not only would he "outlast" his nemesis Truffles Turdball, but also build a new coal-fired power station, make housing more affordable by cutting immigration, ban wind farms, get rid of the clean energy target and build a fleet of nuclear submarines, thereby earning the approval of our biggest Miner, Gina R and other assorted quislings of the dim-witted far right.

His cognitive dissonance is such that he was actually bagging policy he himself had in the past, wrought  and that he courageously (in a "Yes Minister" sense) repeated his Red Peril, Hanson-Lite fantasy agenda at another right-wing think tank, the Cabal of Interminable Stupidity which only served to highlight the Trump-esque delusions of grandeur that are now afflicting Rabid and his cohort of self-serving nation wreckers. His accurate comment that there "....was a pall of despondency over the nation" blithely missed the irony that he, his ruling rabble Liarbril Party, their right-wing think tanks and the Ugly American Murdoch's media are the real cause of the despondency of a nation which is now going backward in every way and at an alarming rate.

Fresh from monstering the Victorian High Court and getting away with it, we now have these far right troglodytes vehemently resisting  any policy response which is socially benign. They will not be satisfied until there is full deregulation and privatisation of all services and that the new feudal system is fully in place.
Do you hear a bell tolling?
