G'day Possums,
well the Great Day has come and gone and rarely has the nature of a country's social fabric been exposed as so threadbare
When 60,000 are on the streets in Melbourne, 50,000 in Sydney and thousands of others in Adelaide, Perth and Brisbane are marching to state: "Change-The-Day" to stop memorialising what is really the  "Invasion Day" of Janurary 26 and when the Prime Miniature Truffles Turdball pontificates at us "that it is a day when we all come together;  when we are united as a national identity….." you know that the wheels are falling off.
Glued to the racist, elitist and ignorant paradigms of the White Australia Policy of the 30's, the ruling rabble are again showing themselves to be not only  irrelevant to the C21st  but consciously divisive and retrograde.
This may bring some pleasure to clowns like Le Jongleur Roskam  at the Coot's-With-Queer-Ideas-From-a-Parallel-Universe (aka, the IPA) as a diversion in their quest to make Australia a fully mindless, free-market, capitalist tool for the 1% to play but with the social cracks getting as wide as the country's wealth disparity they must be aware they are close to being swallowed up in the coming dissension.
..says it all, really.
..says it all, really.

Lately sensing a turn of tide, the wholly unimaginative un-environment minister, Hungarian Fictions Frydenberg, attempting to be better-late-than-never penned a story announcing with boyish enthusiasm that he had discovered electric cars and that they were "a-good-thing" only to be roundly abused as proselytising for Tesla by Right-Wing Lump of Bile, Judy Sloan. Who said of Fictions, " What was he thinking? If there ever was a country less suited to electric vehicles, it’s Australia."  Now: that Judes is a pretty nasty piece of work, particularly if you happen to be an Early School / Kindergarten Teacher and that her economic sense is less trickle down but more slow drip, is probably well understood but Oz not being suited to electric vehicles? Really?  But then she's probably,1/ ignoring, 2/ can't rise above the muck of The Ugly American Murdoch's stable or 3/ just hasn't noticed the electric trucks with ranges of 800Km or the little solar backed-up commuter cars from Germany with a 300km range. You can see her now, waddling over to Mr Benz in 1886 and authoritatively telling him, "Karl, you know this isn't going to work, don’t you? You have no roads and no oil wells and besides, Rupert doesn't like it!"

Another frightened of progress is our Biggest Miner Gina's "bestie," ex-New Zealand philanderer / adulterer and alleged Transport Minister, Barnyard Joyce who sees the replication of the overseas ban on petrol and diesel in favour of pursuing electric as nonsense.." for as long as we can Frack the Hunter region and drain the Murray/Darling she'll-be-right…"
It was not ascertained whether this alleged outburst was the result of Delirium Tremens or the issuing of divorce settlement papers.
Chiming into all this and helping to kick this ruling rabble can back to the C19th was Craig " Punter" Kelly who oddly, for a climate change sceptic, is the chair of the ruling rabble's environment and energy committee (primarily to advise Fictions). Punter doesn't like wind farms, renewable energy and tobacco taxes but he likes the IPA. Needless to say, what he said is wholly irrelevant as it has been alleged that even most of his colleagues think he's a twit, too!

Apart from sinking the boot into Dan-the-Man here in the Tardis State (which is no longer going backwards) Truffles has thrown some shekels at the not-so-Great Barrier Reef in order to A/ look like he really cares  and B/ regain his lost popularity by doing what environmentalists and marine scientists think is "a wasteful publicity stunt" that will have minimal impact on the Crown of Thorns Starfish ravaging the reef.

Aussie of the Year was awarded to a scientist… a Quantum physicist, Professor Michelle Yvonne Simmons, whose work has been heralded as launching Australia into "the space race of the computing era."  Truffles, whose ruling rabble Mk2, like the ruling rabble Mk1 of Rabid the Hun, doesn't boast a science minister because the climate change deniers/sceptics and Neanderthals of this rabble would be embarrassed by thinking, hypocritically gave the prize to her.

The photos are from the local on Australia Day; it was worth noting that the mood was very flat…plenty of bikers from somewhere else… not much happening around the local CFA tanker, only a few watching the woodchop…but plenty of synthetic patriotism attached to things  and beer in cans only … saved being "glassed," I was told. Generally these days are fun: not this year.. perhaps the effect of politicising the rural volunteer brigades by the State ruling rabble opposition cohort has borne its own obvious fruit

Advance Australia Where?

Bogans all let us lament
That we are full of fear
We’ve privatised all in making wealth
For investors not from here.
Our abundant natures gifts are raped
For compensation poor.
Oft wrapped in flags of Chinese make
And ranting slogans of mindless hate
In words fully three and sometimes more
Advance Australia Where?

Below our smoggy Southern Cross
All things wrecked by Rabid's IPA whim
And 457’s on the rise
Our future does look grim.
We say to those fleeing shock and awe
“We’re bloody full, right! So fuck off
Illegal Queue jumpers welcomed here
Only if your Burqa’s doffed”
Still …Oz Flagged wrapped in sentiment fake
Advance Australia Where?

To look like your thoughts…

shane mirrored
shane mirrored

G'day Possums,

Dodo Dutton… Deep North Fascist, blunders on to Sydney radio to rail against Dan-the-Man Andrews in Vic over what he sees as a crisis with gangs, the judiciary and multi-culturalism… not white ones like the 100 who terrorised the Torquay beach resort, mind you,  nor the four whities who head-stomped a girl attending a fight- injured man in Geelong but Africans … because the ruling rabble are so bereft of policy that's positive and having run out of well, never had, good economic news, they are compelled to wallow in their inner recesses and via smoke screen express fully what they actually look like.
They are ugly and getting uglier… rather akin to Dorian Gray's portrait where each moral breach is registered in the portrait's facade but not in the publicly accessed arena of a compliant Ugly American Murdoch, media.
True to the original bottom-feeder dictums of Little Johnny Howard and his "Tampa "and  "Children Overboard" calumnies,  Truffles motley,  incompetent and mostly incoherent ruling rabble can only see political survival in the further destruction of every sound social attribute requiring imagination, vision and talent. They pray at the altar of Le Jongleur, Roskam's regressive IPA and like Dutton, double down in falsehood as there is no other avenue left available to them .
And why is Dan-the-Man under such ferocious attack?
He does things for the community! 
Like Jay Weatherill in SA, he builds infrastructure to benefit the state and provides jobs that  show up how pointless the federal ruling rabble is.
Rotten to the Core
Rotten to the Core
Being consistently opaque, the public submissions to the Truffles / Ruddock review of religious "freedom" in Australia will be kept secret. That this is another marked departure from normal processes seems not to bother this supine nation.
So, like an inquisition being secret, why would should any-one take the Rancid Ruddock's findings with any seriousness?
“Economic management is not the Turnbull Government’s strong suit, or indeed that of the Abbott train wreck which preceded it.
In the four and a bit years since the Coalition has been in power the deficit has ballooned from $18.8 billion in Labor’s last year to $33 billion in 2016-17, while total borrowings have risen past $600 billion.
On the “reform” front there is also precious little to crow about: in the Abbott era the Government repealed the carbon pricing scheme, replacing a market mechanism with a taxpayer-funded mess, and junked the mining tax for good measure while goading Australian car makers into closing their factories.”
So sayeth one of the Ugly Americans tabloids!
Is the worm turning or is the myth constantly peddled by the ruling rabble of their economic sagacity finally being appreciated for the falsehood it is?
The rampant corruption of the ruling rabble with their "over-entitlement" and "deals" over the Murray Darling water, overseas political donations, etc has borne its natural fruit.
The number of  public servants bureaucrats witnessing corruption in their agencies has nearly doubled compared to three years ago as has the growing number reporting cronyism and nepotism. 
The latest public service commission State of the Service report found 5 per cent of surveyed government staff said they had seen corrupt behaviour, a figure that has steadily risen since an initial survey in 2013-14 that found 2.6 per cent had witnessed it in their workplaces.
What is the only thing  the ruling rabble do well?  Corruption.. and note the date... since the accession of ruling rabble Mk#1.

If you look you can see it in their faces.

Hoo-roo Petals,

The Calm Before The Storm...?

...among the gums
Shane...among the gums
G'day possums,

Xmas has come and quietly gone with a side tour to Trentham Falls and a photo-op just up the road from the burrow at O' Brien's Crossing... to replicate the Wombat's Gels sitting together on the same rock they had sat on and  photographed many, many years ago.

At the Falls there were many people ignoring warning signs and climbing barriers attempting the 32 metre descent to the bottom of the falls down a rough, narrow path... and many others proving their place in existence with "selfies." 

Self was also central at O'Brien's with people camping along the pebbled fringes of the barely running and narrow Lederderg River: the most notable being the palatial white marquee whose occupants had thoughtfully placed their chugging generator closer to campsites other than their own so they could enjoy watching the televised test cricket in the relative quiet of their tent.

Mrs Wombat and I also came across some other campers cooking up an aromatic storm of b-b-q'd Lamb who told us they were Persian and kindly offered us a delicious sample of their fare.... I hope that they have nothing to worry about with the current ructions in their homeland.

The Wombat gels were late arriving back have spent time trying to douse a campfire that had been left smouldering (a day before a day of total fire ban) and out of mobile range for a  call in the CFA to deal with it.

Some postulate that the selfish actions seen here are a result of the "Age of Anxiety". The age where for the young, everything is so controlled and intervention so complete that real success or failure is never experienced, limits are never broached and experiential development is stalled until "adulthood" is reached and self absorption, ignorance of collectivism and societal common purpose has decayed and corrupted till only a nihilistic individual hedonism  is recognisable. 

O'Brien's Crossing
VicPol  have, after another nutter used his vehicle as a weapon on city crowds placed a malfunctioning tannoy warning system around the city: "Whoop, whoop, whoop... there is an emergency taking place, please don't panic in the vicinity of Swanston and Latrobe!" ...... and also spent considerable time telling the population how many heavily armed officers will be patrolling on N Y E and that "...wherever you are, we are here to look after you and keep you safe... from whatever disaster or riot might eventuate."
It was hard not to get a sense that they were actually salivating at the prospect of a riot so that they could justify their existence and bang someone on the head or let off a few celebratory 40 Cal Smith and Wesson rounds.
The word "riot," was used, too!  Be fearful, fear everything, Big Brother will look after (control) you!
Trentham Falls

On the federal front: Fishnets-That-Batter, Downer, (soon to be replaced by Bookshelves Brandarse  as our  High Ponce in London) prior to last years election in the Un-United States, had, not only  a very boozy chat with one of Pussy-Grabber Trump' s apparatchiks who apparently revealed "the Russian Connection" to the pussy Grabber's campaign but then Fishnets  belched this info to Oz security who dutifully informed the FBI which will, in turn, make the Pussy Grabber and his bestie Putin, a trifle annoyed with Oz.

And why was Fishnets-That-Batter having excessive drinky-poo's with Tea Party trolls on the taxpayer's purse in the first place?

Fresh from the mongrels who can't competently fill our their citizenship declarations comes the story of a Tamil detainee who struggled to fill out 41-page application form in English – and was not able to access legal assistance in time and so, was placed in handcuffs at Villawood detention centre and slated for deportation that evening.

Barnyard tells us he has a big pool of talent to trawl from.
Like 20 !!!!!
Who is this philandering and corrupt alcoholic trying to convince with hyperbole filched from mining propaganda brochures in justifying more unknown Deep Northerners in cabinet ?

As more detail emerges as to who said what to whom, The Harpy, Cash has been rebuffed in the Federal Court and  been directed to hand over the documents relevant to her leaked / botched raid on the AWU …… and then Scummo Morrison: one hypocrite whose alleged "faith"  I was never aware of having any impact for good ever on Australian society,  in fact quite the opposite;  and I'm sure the refugees he set adrift in lifeboats and those he turned back or incarcerated would think similarly of his  "standing up" for Xtian values by promising to play a leading role next year in the debate about enshrining further "protections" for religious freedom in law!
..a rubbish xmas tree...
Roaming Quisling, Border Farce Gruppenfuehrer, it has been revealed by "Benito" Pezzullo  is STILL (since May 2017) under investigation for abuse of power (and allegedly being naughty with younger staff, other than his spouse) on full pay of $618,000.00 pa. 
His Reich fuehrer, DoDo Dutton is being commendably loyal to his ex Deep North plod mate who just might have to "goods" on Dodo, though it is interesting to note how tardy the nature and progress of such investigations of corruption are  when it comes to the ruling rabble's henchmen as compared to the alacrity with which the AFP act on the Labor party or the Unions!

Which is perhaps why latter-day Noe Notion aficionado, Dickie Smith is sensing that this sort of hypocrisy, allied with the yawning and increasing gap in wealth distribution is the reason he feels a real revolution is around the corner…..and why the nobbled ABC in concert with other Ugly American, Murdoch propaganda sheets is peddling the  mis-information that Labor is cracking.... or am I really hearing another tsunami of wishful thinking to divert a nation in a parlous economic and psychological space? 
The Harpy Cash is being hoist on her own petard, Scummo is still talking fiscal and religious fairy tales, Fictions Frydenberg is permanently off with the Hungarian pixies on energy, Jobsongroth, unable to find a renewable contract with decent penalty rates and Barnyard's bullying all and sundry in an effort to prove his virility whilst the Un-xtian Porter (a shallow boy seeking validation of his existence by punching people) unpacks the IPA agenda on Human Rights to lead us back to serfdom. 
Yep, 2018 will see Truffles still playing Canute without a life jacket and will continue to demonstrate his awesome facility of the reverse Midas touch as the world mocks and feeds off us
Around this Wombat's burrow , NYE was unusually quiet, the roads and city further west apparently deserted and fireworks seen on TV from Sydney, overlong and boring ..there was no mention of riots either…is this the calm before the inevitable storm?
Hoo-roo Petals,
