2021 – Good bits and bad bits

Could 2022 see the end of the Tory virus?

2021 wasn’t all bad. Sure, Shitaro and his sidekick Tombei The Pissed still have their jobs, the Tory grift emporium is re-open for business and expecting a brisk trade in the lead up to the election, and a weird mix of Tony Abbott, the Grim Reaper and an oil rig has assumed the mantle of NSW premier but there is hope as we segue into 2022.

The polls are showing a move away from the Tories. The panic from moderate (sic) Liberals facing challenges from viable independents in their tree-lined, Toorak-tractored enclaves and the fear from the journeymen party spivs horrified at the possibility of being held to account has brought some tidings of comfort and joy for many of us watching from the side-lines. It has also boosted traffic on LinkedIn and Trip Advisor as this effluvium considers their post-election prospects or checks the star ratings for top bunk vs bottom bunk at various of Her Majesty’s homes for the habitually shady.

There is no accusation here of criminality by any specific politicians (Heaven and lawyers forbid), it’s just my febrile musings about the consequences of blatant corruption, the stench of which permeates the clothes of anyone within a paper bag’s throw of these shysters.

Any mirth stemming from the notion of the Beetrorter being ordered to spread his cheeks and lift his sack upon sign-in at the Glen Innes Correctional Centre balances the dry-retching resulting from the mental imagery that that idea may raise.

Then there’s Miss Appropriation 2020, Bridget McKenzie, whose perpetually waxy visage may be symptomatic of her dread that Sports Rorts could be re-visited. Bridge’s only strategy for avoiding come-uppance is likely to be to play dead. Our Bridge is short a pylon or two.

And did I see Minister for Monetising Carbon Pollution Fidel d’Figueres developing a facial tic at the prospect of a few rounds with counsel assisting? All pure conjecture of course. But pleasing nevertheless as Fidel will be high on the persons-of-interest listing of a future federal integrity body.

These are random wishes on my note to Santa; these dodgy operators are just the crust on the entire fetid spittoon that considers itself to be free from consequences, answerable to no-one bar an eagle painting and a cabal of billionaire oligarchs.

In contrast Josh the work experience guy seems nice. Ha! That crafted image of a rosy-cheeked cherub with a rapidly disappearing Friar Tuck tonsorial has slipped. Whether shrilly undermining Victoria’s Covid efforts or calling up critics’ employers to have them silenced or fired he’s revealed himself to be the standard Tory nasty that many suspected he always was. Our chubby exchequer is well out of his depth as Treasurer so he can always plead stupidity if facing the beak to explain the repurposing of billions of our dollars to favoured Tory sponsors and electorates, letting the criminals in the banks off the hook or secretly deleting ASIC corruption findings. Josh’s discomfort is obvious from his red-faced histrionics so it’s been an enjoyable past-time to measure his panic on the Shouty-O-Meter whenever he’s not applying oily schmooze to his increasingly sceptical constituents.

While on the subject of those who see themselves as Prime Minister in waiting the best news of 2021 is that Xtian Porter will never be an occupant of The Lodge. In underlining his law suit victory and vindication by ignominiously resigning before a Labor government can initiate some formal enquiries into his behaviour, Blue Balls the born-to-rule, big swinging dick has shown himself as nothing more than a whiney little bitch. This output from a turd distillery can at least be reassured that should he ever be up before the courts they will be open to the public in contrast to his secret persecutions of Bernard Collaery and Witness K.

More good news was announced this year by party balloons Tweedledumb and Tweedledumberer. Groomed at a carwash and nourished by Krispy Kreme, Gorgeous George Christensen has pulled out while Cray Cray Kelly has signed up to fellow zeppelin Clive Creosote Palmer’s UAP. Cray Cray is marketing himself as the by-product of a threesome between Nigel Farage, Chef Pete Evans and a channel marker (UAP party slogan: Craig’s our buoy). Cray Cray’s brilliant career is about to go down in flames. Oh the humanity! Guffaw!

Glad tidings also arrived in March from the western end of our wide, brown land from whence news of a massacre was despatched to a joyful public in the east. The Tories were all but obliterated in the state election courtesy of the actions of those two cleverest of political minds Clive and the Dud (i.e. Scooter Morrison) who jointly thought it a brilliant move to threaten WA with a law suit mid-pandemic and just prior to the voting. Scooter hides his marketing genius behind the facade of a smart-arsed maitre d at the smug and over-sold Bros, Lecce (Bros., Lecce: We Eat at The Worst Michelin Starred Restaurant, Ever – The Everywhereist).

The other good news at the end of 2021 is that Rupert Murdoch is one year nearer his funeral.

    The inverted smirk, the only thing about slippery scott that appeals to me. How is it physically possible to invert a smirk so impressively?
    I hope you get all your xmas wishes, Mr Geezer.

  2. Henry Rodrigues

    Very well surmised Grumpy, a whole year’s coalition BS in a few paragraphs. Won’t be long now before we get an opportunity to finally stuff these bastards into the political dustbin of Australian democracy and take them out to the garbage dump. None of this rubbish is recyclable.

  3. leefe

    Joshy is a Thatcher fanboi. That’s all we need to know.

  4. ajogrady

    This corrupt to the core dysfunctional and incompetent L/NP government, that the Australian people are suffering under, is a direct result of a complicit, sympathetic and sycophantic main stream media conspiring with the L/NP to manipulate our democracy.

    I can almost picture “I’ve only got 10 fingers and toes” Friedeggburger as PM standing in front the media wearing his Thatcher dress and wig…urg, I feel sick now.

  6. Roswell

    Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to you too, Mr Grumpy. Thank you for the laughs you’ve given us in 2021: a year where there hasn’t been much else to laugh about.

    The way things are looking, 2022 might be a repeat of 2021.

    Beauty, grumpy,
    Loved the bit that showed how an incident with Clive and dud came to provide government. Anything happen in Nth QLD in 2019?
    Just got into Adelaide liberal government has gone from caring about omicron in Sept to the NSW ‘it’s the poor who will suffer’

  8. Kate Ahearne


    I’d like to be able to thank you for this piece, but I can’t because of this: ‘…Blue Balls the born-to-rule, big swinging dick has shown himself as nothing more than a whiney little bitch.’

  9. Bert

    Thanks for all your effort during the past year GG, even if it did cost me a new keyboard at one stage. Looking forward to you once again girding the loins in 2022 with your take on proceedings. Merry Xmas to you and yours as well as all readers and commenters of AIMN.
    A better year next year……We hope…..

    GL, it’s an interesting development.

    The states had been pleading for the booster waiting period to be reduced from five months to four. Scotty ignored those pleas saying he will be guided by ATAGI’s recommendations.

    ATAGI has now provided that recommendation.

    I’m at odds that state health authorities were one step ahead of ATAGI.

    Me thus thinks there might be a supply problem, which Scotty doesn’t want to admit.

  11. GL

    “Supply problem? We don’t have a supply problem. We just can’t get any supplies…I, um…meant we have sourced a hugenormous supply from (waves hands to indicate out there somewhere) overseas.”

    Mike’s on the money here:

    I am at one with you Grumpy, but I still feel a disquiet that the 2022 election will be a repeat of the 2019.

    Apparently snotty could stay in power untill September, if he chooses a half Senate poll ?
