Return to Khaos

Shane listening to ABC while it still exists.

G,day Possums,

The ancient Greeks maintained that before the world was formed there was the void, which they termed, Khaos.
As Australia as a civil society is unravelled by the Ruling Rabble, as it is tainted, soiled, besmirched, bowdlerised and made feeble in the face of the world are we witnessing our return to chaos?

I have included with my rant, quotes from two journalist’s articles and an artist-photographer/poet, which to me encapsulate a similar mood concerning the direction in which this country is heading.

Photo’s are from France to leaven the gloom of this post....

Alleged environment minister Fiction’s Frydenberg, wags his finger at the electricity company's for ripping off their customers, conveniently avoiding the fact that it was his state Ruling Rabble colleagues who were the ones who privatised what the public once owned and that this ongoing and glaring practice of malevolent capitalism is what the Ruling Rabble actually aspire to in their so-called, “free-market”.
He descended further into farce when, with Dan van Holst Pellekaan, (SA energy and Mining minister with training wheels) they claimed that falling electricity prices are the Ruling Rabble’s doing and not the previous Labor government who had invested heavily in renewables.
This nonsense is probably of no help to The Gorgon, Downer in her pallid bid to reclaim the family sinecure of Mayo from the upstart, Sharkie: happily, polls are not looking good for the IPA’s dull one from Victoria.
IPA colleague, Alan Meerkat, Tudge has backpedalled on draconian English tests for citizenship… obviously, Alan, Alan..has been whacked by polls suggesting that “dog-whistling” about immigrants is still poor policy in what’s left of our civil society.

The newly minted plastic Attorney General (and latterly suspect state treasurer of WA) the un- Christian Porter looked uncomfortable in interview when spouting that new security measures are meant to protect us from foreign terrorist elements disrupting or undermining our society and body politic. Obviously, he realised he had just defined the last five years of the Ruling Rabble regime and the continued support offered by The Ugly American, Murdoch and his papers.
Part of his package seeks to allow multi-national and other big business’ a right to instigate defamation action when criticised, for example, polluting a river, poisoning their clientele or other grotesqueries and it offers more belligerent police action should demonstrators take their concerns to the street and block traffic.
Without a hint of irony this paragon of the law said that, “I don’t have a concluded view. I would wait to see the legal research and see the types of options that might be available.”
Now doesn’t that put your minds at rest eh, Petals?
Ruling Rabble, Gang-Bang Conference at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney unanimously votes to sell off the ABC….. to a media type, a collection of staff or whichever Chinese pops up first. …. except for rural and regional broadcasting……….sigh……...!
Why do these mongrels always, always want to return to the beginning of the last century?
Why do these IPA controlled non-entity's fear diversity and balance so much? Is it because they know that diversity is essentially democratic and that their view of the world is untenable?
Well at least, “Vote Liberal: Lose the ABC” can’t be construed as a lie during the next election campaign.

Prime Miniature,Truffles announced that Australian taxpayers were to foot 2/3 of the bill for the Solomon Islands to have a State-of-the-Art internet system. Playing catch-up after this incompetent Ruling Rabble de-funded aid into the Pacific and idly watched while the Chinese happily filled the vacuum, Truffles saw no irony in that the Solomon’s will get a better system than us, earlier, faster and not copper like the atrocious one he’s foisted on his own country.

And now for some voices more eloquent than mine expressing similar thoughts….

The AWU raid may look like student politics, but it has a nastier edge: banana-republic stuff, power wielded without consideration of civil society. It is a small part of the wider decomposition of Australian politics, and of the Western right more generally. The Liberals are, and always have been about the assertion of power. In the postwar era, against the rise of the productive state and working class movements, they championed free-market liberalism as an answer to the growing problems of social democracy. Now, they prefer racis – sorry, “national security”, and vast subsidies for the fossil fuel sector. Whether it’s attacks on unions, or the spruiking of the Ramsey Centre, the kitsch piles up, to the point where the right’s true character is revealed: a party of state order and repression, for whom the openness of markets and social life are a secondary consideration.
These are the people who rule us, and who, in 95% of seats you must choose between if your vote is to count. This is bathysphere politics, the mutual race to a deep bottom.” Guy Rundle: The Saturday Paper, June 9-15 2018.

“…. Alan Jones in a fawning interview with Howard on 2GB…. were both oblivious to the irony of their complaint: that the very process of interrogating our society, its institutions and values, is the essence of the civilisation they purport to defend.
The dogmatic insistence of the Ramsey Centre – that its curriculum should be immune from such interrogation – is evidence of a failure to embody the values it seeks to teach.” Mike Secombe: The Saturady Paper, June 18-22, 2018.

I've got to say that I'm done with priests and prophets. They're all men and they all work in the service of hierarchical and usually patriarchal systems - no better than bankers. And believe me I have met the lot of them - 30 years of spiritual musical chairs. Then it occurred to me that if I removed from my mind everything a male authority had ever told me about how I should see the world - I had no idea how I would see the world. Because there is one thing that priests and prophets do really well and that's convince you to surrender your autonomous eye. I'll never do that again. Maybe religion is dying out now because we've got social media to tell us what to think so we don't need god now. It is so hard to decide to look, really look, with your own invalidated and not very famous eyes.” Judith Nangala Crispin. Poet / Photographer-Artist.

Roll Up, Roll Up, Roll Up…

Shane in King Valley

G’day Possums,

Mrs Wombat and I took a little sojourn to the King Valley so the pics are from there but the dog is for a sculpture so they have nought to do with the content.

Wow, what a fortnight…. the circus is in town!
In topping off his exposition as how his grand project of creating concentration camps for genuine refugees was really a good thing, (as only those who understood knew), the cadaver looking for a corpse, Senator ”Fallujah” Molan positively revelled in his shallow justification of bureaucratic cruelty dressed up as strength on QandA last week.
Around the same time one of the ex Major General’s “finest”, ex SAS captain and now Ruling Rabble member, Handy-Andy Hastie was dumping on his leader Truffles Turdball by telling all and sundry that Chinese born businessman Chau Chak Wing was a threat to our Never-Never Ozland of Pretend Democracy. Handy-Andy, who was investigated and exonerated (cough, cough) for allegedly allowing his troops to sever hands of Afghan dead as trophies (he never inhaled) and who thumbed his nose at the military hierarchy by utilising his uniform in his political advertising may well be suffering a sort of pay-back. It seems a secret report into SAS brutality has been leaked and there are calls for investigations to be widened and also for the findings to be made public. Given Handy-Andy’s exhibited propensity for arrogance this enquiry may have interesting ramifications for his political career.
Feelin' The Serenity, near Moyhu
An implosion of another sort took place too… Noe Notion’s President for Life, The Red Terror, Apoorlin Hamstrung contorted her visage and spat fury at any media she could find after another of her “party” broke ranks and defied her fiats on Ruling Rabble policy. Reprising all the anguish, anger and vileness that historically she is made of The Red Terror presented, perhaps too graphically, a fine illustration of the abject stupidity of some 10-12 % of the electorate. It is interesting to note that Section 44 offender, The Malfunctioning Mal-Addled Roberts famous for his 77 senate votes and marginal grasp of reality has again recently been polluting screens and air-waves with his mindless meanderings and musings almost as if he knew that a dumping was on the cards and that he had “the-sit” for a possible return as scourge of our political life.
Fortunately, a further diminution of the senate’s IQ scale has not, as yet, taken place.
Feelin' The Serenity- King Valley
Demonstrating just why the commercial networks hate the ABC, Chunder Seven put on The Barnyard and Floozie pantomime in a serious attempt at exploiting the “couple’s” newly discovered relevance deprivation syndrome.
At $150,000.00, allegedly for the “grey area” sprog’s education, Barnyard and Floozie individually gave evidence to an inept interviewer as to why our political system in such a parlous state.
Barnyard, with no hint of shame, told that he only went into his section44 bye-election “out of spite” knowing that he would lose his Deputy PM position as soon as his affair was known, and that his fellow Hayseed Party members were “..the absolute scum of the earth.”
For her part, the Floozie showed no interest in the dog’s dinner she was making with this Panto and had nought to say as to how much more talent she brought as media adviser to three ministers, or was paid or whether the affair and its travel were at taxpayer expense….although its existence was perhaps a role model for the insinuation advertised against Barnyard’s potential electoral nemesis, that Tony Windsor was “doing-the-rounds!”
She was certain though, that she was the ‘adult” in the room, contradicting Barnyard when he asserted that he was, thus leaving the viewers with the impression that neither were.
Of course there was no mention of his ministerial disasters: the Murray/Darling, the live sheep trade, and the shifting of the Ag Dept, his fortuitous land purchases , his religious hypocrisy, the expense accounts etc... that could all be left to the ABC to explore... to then be criticised as left-leaning!
It is gratifying to report that the Chunder 7 Panto “bombed.”
Feelin' The Serenity, Bonnie Doon
Then in senate estimates up popped the clown from the south Vichy Abetz who language mangled an attempt to have a DFAT mandarin agree with his assertion that Xtianity is the most persecuted religion on earth. The mandarin treated Vichy with requisite kindness by not pointing out that historically, Vichy’s family “has form” in the religious persecution stakes and that 65% of the population ignoring religion is not a measure of persecution but simply sanity preservation.
It seems that Vichy’s distraction might be either a preemptive “sounding” for the results of the enquiry into religious “freedoms” which will soon be announced or a cover for his colleague The Harpy Cash whom the AFP are taking an interest in but either way, anything this Ruling Rabble indicates an interest in, is doomed!
Feelin' The Serenity, Bonnie Doon2
Playing the Pipe Organ in the back row of this circus were the Neo-Feudalists of The-Coot’s-With-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe, aka the IPA. Fronted in one instance by the overly loquacious but vacuous, Simon The Simple Breheny and in the other by Bunter Berg, these intellectually pre-adolescent libertarians babbled along in the background that denying donors to university courses selecting their own paths and lecturers, a denial of free speech and that taxing the rich was akin to the oppression of racism.
They did!
Full, as usual, of straw-man arguments, these contraversialists of limited depth have also been banging the drum louder on the selling off of the one serious news source, the ABC.
How do they fit into a democratic Quisling did in Norway!

The Last Gasp of the Cornered Beast!

Shane with Monsters

G'day Possums,

It seems the Rabid Right are becoming more and more strident and aggressive.... losing the argument perhaps? They have finally called for the 5 by-elections... nine weeks off... smack bang on the day of the Labor Party tri-ennial conference. Petty, vindictive, high school politics, unfair….. its all been said and its true; this mongrel lot will do anything to achieve their ends.
Hoping to run Labor dry financially and policy-wise and giving themselves time to fully utilise their links with “Cambridge Analytica” and “i360” to target select marginal electorates, there is also the opportunity, if Labor loses a couple of the seats to then call a general election with more confidence.
But on the other hand this ruling rabble is so incompetent, ham-fisted, and blunderingly stupid it could be nine weeks of shooting themselves in the foot, a minimum nine times, too!
And interestingly it looks as though the IPA’s The Gorgon, "I have returned," Downer is going to get a run for her (or rather daddy’s) money as three independents from other states are going across to campaign with her opposition candidate Sharkie….then there’s the Gorgon’s total vacuousness … how is that ever to fill nine weeks of campaigning?
Music for the Gorgon.

What a litany... and what a shambles...QandA (21/5)...THAT Jane Hume... Oi, such smug cant from a deluded woman...soporifically intoning the usual ruling rabble chapter and verse about merit, democratic process and ability in pre-selecting woman for the rabble or rather, not... and seemingly blissfully unaware of just how shallow their talent pool is…. and then The Altar-Boy, Sheridan set to; reprising the catechism of the 50's whilst ignoring the overwhelming supperuration of catholic hypocrites in the ruling's Theatre of the Absurd written by Kafka.
ruling rabble policy agenda

Oh, dear... then another distraction for the MSM to get their knickers in a knot about rather than concentrating on a policy bereft and incompetent ruling rabble, a rabble whose corruption is overflowing like an overfull septic tank.

After The TURC probed an alleged series of kickbacks from employers to the AWU in exchange for workplace deals that allegedly sold out low-paid workers, allegedly saved employers millions of dollars and allegedly boosted the political power of Mr Melhem and Mr Shorten RC Dyson, Cadaver Heydon had these matters referred it to the police... who dropped any charges.
So the ruling rabble have now, two years after the event, concocted a civil case.
Shades of “Ute-Gate” and AFP raids on union offices….This time it’s Cesar Melum who’s being investigated.  
'Nuff said.

The Archbishop of Adelaide has been convicted of covering up paedophilia within his wolf-pack and eventually stepped aside. But not understanding “the Act of Contrition” refused to resign. He’s waiting to be sentenced but will probably appeal first.

So they want chaplains in schools... they want 150 metre exclusion zones around their churches, they want to be political players?
Then effing-well, pay taxes! 

....all lined up
The Independent Parliamentary Expenses Authority is refusing to release information about staff travel relating to Vikki Floozie Campion, the one-time adviser but full-time shag of ex-deputy prime minister Barnyard Joyce, claiming it could “endanger life”.

A Freedom of Information request by The West Australian newspaper sought a breakdown of staff travel for the offices of Senator Matt, Mummy’s-Boy Canavan and Damian Dum-Dum, Drum, where Ms Campion was “employed” after she was shifted ( typo? Shafted?) from Mr Joyce’s office. The I.P.E.A. refused to release any details of staff in those offices.
claiming that the release of the information would have the consequence of “endangering the life or physical safety” of the staff involved, or individuals associated.
The Westie had sought a breakdown of about $165,000 worth of travel by staff in Mummy-Boys office from April to September 2017 and details of the $27,000 of staff travel conducted by staff in Dum-Dum’s office from July to September 2017.
The silence is quite deafening…..and I haven’t yet seen the mob with pitchforks and scythes banging on the new perimeter bulwark against democracy surrounding parliament house so who’s in danger?


"It’s the country’s most sought-after interview, and a likely ratings bonanza: the rights to the exclusive chat with Barnyard Joyce and his current partner Vikki ,Floozie Campion." breathlessly PR’d Channel 7 who is apparently paying this corrupt ex-minister and his floozie some $170,000.00 for them to explain who the father of the child is, why they cheated on their respective spouses and how much they enjoy fleecing the taxpayer.

Hmmm... the Gutter Press rolling in it's own faeces again!!

The Australian Public Service Commissioner John Lloyd has been quizzed on his email communication with IPA executive director John Roskam for the strongly partisan opinions they contain. It has been revealed Petals, that formal complaints have been made against John Lloyd for breaches of the Public Service Code of Conduct although the specifics of the allegations or who made them remain undisclosed. Le Jongleur Roskam has been uncharacteristically quiet on this...
The silence is quite deafening….. again.

As Goya painted: " The Sleep of Reason Produces Monsters"

The Days are getting Dark and it’s Not Just Winter.

Shane in a Dark Place
Shane in a Dark Place
G’day Possums,

Bringing Australia into line with Germany 1933, the Ruling Rabble have announced that police at airports can now demand ID's at any time, from anyone, for any reason. When asked ‘”Why?” Truffles tartly replied, “Because they can.” As we don’t have a national ID card this is another fine example of the planning competence from this pathetic rabble: for what do you say to plod when asked? And you say, “I haven’t one” and plod says, “Your driving licence will do” and you reply “I haven’t it on me.” Truffles didn't deny that this announcement was to distract from further unwanted analysis of what is more widely being seen as a “Three-Card-Trick”, budget and that in lieu of a real terrorist “crisis,” a manufactured one would have to suffice.
At the moment, the design and symbol of the requisite armband we shall all be wearing has not been finalised as there are too many variables to take into account.. white, black, brown, yellow, pink, blue etc. (notice… no red) and the arm numbering tattoo system too, is behind schedule. The Zyklon-B based ink being tested is having side effects on the unemployed elderly,  Manus concentration camp refugees and those not yet on the NDIS or New-Start.
Oberst-Gruppen-Fuhrer Potato-Head Dutton has been busy in consultation with Standart-Fuhrer Pezzullo as they seek meetings with the Hugo Boss Company regarding costumes.
Le Jongleur Roskam, Chief Clown of The-Coots-With-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe still maintains that “...hard work makes you free...” and is fundraising for Cardinal Pell-Pot’s trial defence of historical sexual abuse accusations
Interesting times eh, Petals.

The Gorgon, Downer, The IPA’s Princess of Banality, High Priestess of Rote Cant and dumped executive member from the Vic Ruling Rabble was heard rapturously whining to the hapless residents of Mayo in a General MacArthur moment, "I have returned!"
There has been no announcement as to whether the electorate enjoy being treated as vassals to this hereditary family who  treat Mayo as a personal sinecure but perhaps the last candidate, Sharkie was a breath of fresh air after the odious Briggs … and maybe The Gorgon has a real fight on her hands....

Australia’s Carbon emissions are up across the board except in the renewable sector... oops...Now, where’s that climate policy?
Hungarian, Fictions Frydenberg, minister for environmental destruction, "discovers" that electricity networks have been rorting customers about the real costs of poles and wires and true to form, blames Labor.
Fictions announced that networks and gas pipeline operators would be investigated by the energy watchdog the Australian Energy Regulator for potentially overcharging consumers by $400 million a year to cover their corporate tax bills. But the Ruling Rabble were warned as far back as February 2015 by S A's energy minister Tom Koutsantonis (Labor) and Vic's energy, environment and climate change minister, Lily D'Ambrosio, (Labor) who wrote to Fictions and also to then treasurer Eleventy Hockey about the issue of “...consumers being ripped off by power companies... but they did nothing about the networks' income tax allowance that permitted the overcharging." she said.
But it is still Labor’s fault.
Bad Labor.

Blackmail charges against CFMEU union officials John Setka and Shaun Reardon have, to the chagrin of The Harpy Cash and her doppelganger, Vichy Abetz, been dropped.
In another embarrassment from this failed political stitch-up of the RC into unions, the ruling rabble needed to wheel out Crackers Laundy to publicly lie in saying it had nothing to do with the Ruling Rabble and it was $80,000,000.00 well spent!
Except that The Bankers are causing more grief than Unionists.
Perhaps the Royal Commissioner, Hayden Dyson could be asked to return the millions he Hoovered up, as he has delivered nothing of real value.
I mean, the Ruling Rabble are always banging on how teachers should be paid on results.

Setka and Reardon are not forgiving types and after having them and their families suffer three years of police and political harassment; and with serious doubts as to the legality of some of the “evidence,” The Harpy Cash, (who is currently being very slowly investigated over another botched Union raid) and Vichy Abetz with his then leader, the Onion-munching, Rabid-the-Hun just might rue the day they jointly embarked on this vindictive folly.

Sophie Pit-Bull Mirabella was awarded $175,000.00 for defamation. Which is a trifle short of the 1/2 mill she wanted in her gnawing assault on the local paper who misreported her "push" but who then later apologised (too late) during her 2016 campaign to regain the seat she lost to an independent.
So, Pit-Bull recovers her "good" name?

IPA shill wants prisoners to be put into paid work instead of community was not reported whether this tax-payer funded piece of quality “research” from The-Coots-With-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe’ Abbadon playpen included analysis of pay scales, conditions of employment, OHand S or that if the prisoners absconded they would be sent to the hulks in Port Phillip Bay.
Another shill, Simon The Simple, Breheny thinks that calling a halt to aggressive land clearing in The Deep North is a bad thing.
Over the past 40 years it has been estimated that 50-65% of clearing of Australia’s native forests has occurred in Queensland with detrimental effects of farming to the Great Barrier Reef and greater difficulty in reducing Green-House emissions. Of course, Simon The Simple is a climate change sceptic so that part of the equation doesn’t bother him so economics and profits in a “free” market are of more tangible importance than the GBR.
Which is why I call him Simon, The Simple.
When Le Jongleur‘s away, the mice will play.

Ooh, look over there... a shiny thing……...coin.

Simple Simon Bermingham, (only a relative to the other by avocation) Minister for Non-Education thinks TAFE’s teach only basket weaving and acupuncture....Yes, he did say that.
Which says more about him than he really wishes people to know.

The Australian National Audit Office has serious concerns over the economic value of Australia’s of the $89 billion program’s shipbuilding plans in Adelaide and Perth finding that the government failed to provide sufficient risk assessment of the plans, failed to provide a cost-benefit analysis of projects before approval, warns the projects could result in significant cost over-runs and could inflict major reputational damage on the Defence department and in some cases, despite Defence warnings of “extreme” risk in building some of the ships locally with the broad industrial issues that need to be addressed to achieve productive and cost-effective naval construction programs there has been no government decision on how these reforms might be achieved.”
Paraphrased from: The Business Insider
Now, does that sound like the best of management by The Whyning Pyne or the Smashing Payne, to you, Petals?

Oh, what fun!
The ruling rabble in Vic are having a debt and deficit crisis.
Facing election in 12 months they have managed themselves as well as their federal colleagues have with the aforementioned shipbuilding and the overall Australian budget… now tell me that myth again,…. the one about what excellent fiscal managers they are.

Budget Blues or The Pea and Thimble Con.

 G'day Possums,

The blatant vindictiveness and almost mind numbing hypocrisy of this current ruling rabble has really come to the fore now that Willy Shortstuff has given his budget reply speech.

Labelling his gazumping of their paltry and deceitful tax cuts to low and middle income earners as "unbelieva-BILL" and revelling in three of his parliamentarians having to vacate the opposition benches to face bye-elections because of dual citizenship woes, their raucously, bitchy sloganeering is just a cover for fear of what in a few weeks will be a series of opinion polls which, in all likely-hood, will accurately indicate the paucity of their future national electoral prospects.

Lashing out by cutting funding to anyone they see as a threat, the national broadcaster the ABC has again been singled out for more punishment with another $84,000,000.00 being slashed from its budget bringing the total cuts to over $300,000,000.00 since 2013 when Rabid-the-Hun publicly lied and promised no cuts at all.

Graeme Innes former Disability and Discrimination Commissioner said, "This is about members of the Government having a view that the ABC is biased to the left....and when you think some-one is against you... you cut their funding."
...and on the same program Ugly American Murdoch shill, The Slug Sloane smirked as she agreed and said simply, "It was payback."

When Petals, I wrote the headline banner on the top of this blog I really hoped  that "...the inexorable slide into Fascism." would not happen. Obviously It was a forlorn hope as we are nearly at the bottom of that abyss as freedom of speech is attacked, unions are demonised and fined out of existence, wages are being cut and fear and anxiety are promoted whilst state surveillance is a growing threat to personal liberty.
I was speaking with an ABC staffer recently who said how much they enjoyed reading this blog  but went on indicate that " was more than their job was worth to comment publicly."
I suggested he complain to his nearest IPA manager over restriction of freedom of speech.
Even Gutless Guthrie the ABC's Murdoch trained MD has for once complained at the cuts and there is talk that morale is low and further, that staff are becoming restive.
Adding insult to injury in their Pea and Thimble chicanery, the ruling rabble have decided to spend some $48.7 millions of the ABC's cut to commemorate the 250th anniversary of Capt. Cook's landing. And with another monument .... making I believe, a total of 36 in the country.

Simon, The Simple Breheny, who has never been fettered by such an inhibiting factor as thinking and  also a shill from the IPA (Coot's-with-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe) has shrilly alerted the world to Willy Shortstuff's budget-in-reply speech as being communist and that,  "... the idea of the State owning what you create, abhorrent."
Obviously unaware of the economic strength of Communist China, Simon The Simple rails against governments owning utilities (like the Malay and Chinese govs own significant electricity supplies here) or providing for Police, Hospitals, Schools, Broadcasting to the Nation and all those other economically wasteful services that actually bind communities together as a civil society.
Better, this hypocritical taxpayer funded think-tanker asserts, we spend our taxes on the 1% who know what's good for us and let the "free" market run wild.

More Coot's-with-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe have popped up recently. One proselytising his cant on QandA,  Timmy, The Twat Wilson unfortunately was completely "owned" by self-described "Sustainability Provocateur, Designer, Sociologist, Experimental Educator and Social Change Maker," Leyla Acaroglu.  Openly laughing at The Twat's comments this bright young woman beautifully exposed the banality of the member for Goldstein's little mind and his utter embarrassing uselessness as a contemporary thinker and mightily discomforting this vain, right-wing lump into the bargain.
The third of this wretched trio is  Georgina, The Gorgon Downer who has gained ruling rabble pre-selection for the Adelaide seat of Mayo, being the third or fourth generation of Downers to bludge off the taxpayer in that seat.
Like her father, Fishnets-that-Batter, she is not noted for any outstanding qualities. The Gorgon has not, I reckon, had one original thought in her life, her rote IPA commentary on radio and TV being the most tediously soporific celebration of right-wing mediocrity that makes even Timmy Twat and Simon The Simple look like intellectuals of the first rank.

But, on the bright side, should the electors of Mayo let their better judgment desert them, at least she will no longer pollute the air waves in Victoria as much.
The pictures today are walls around Melbourne with which to bang your head against in frustration at this corrupted country.
Hoo-roo, Petals,
