Gold standard Gladys – the shine is fading

Eeny meeny miniMo: The accidental head master and the prefect.

Warning: This post contains mixed metaphors.

As fellow big biz ‘doucheland über alles’ nasties Gladdy Berejiklian and Scooter Morrison have much in common but I cannot imagine they’d ever be friends – I mean, FFS, the guy is mates with Stuart Robert who has to submit proof of life once a month and Alex Hawke (somewhere there’s a hole missing its toad). And Glad knows the “evil bully” Scooter, in his typically treacherous backgrounding of her, has her name pencilled in on his crowded bus schedule.

Not so much Daggy Dad™ as creepy Uncle Weirdo, Scooter is a particular class of odious; one that requires a complex logistical web to sanitise for public consumption. In contrast Gladdy comes across as an unaffected prissy head prefect and sanctimonious goody two-shoes who, at assembly, wants us all to please know that she’s been let down by the rough crowd’s bad behaviour of locking the doors and hiding the keys (looking at you Andrews, McGowan and Pałaszczuk).

Much to Scooter’s chagrin, Glad came through the bushfire crisis undamaged (provided we whisper that bit about her slashing of the firefighting capabilities of Fire and Rescue, the RFS and NP&WS). Mind you, compared to Scooter’s cowardly abandonment and transparently desperate PR recovery campaign a goat on a unicycle would look in control.

The relationship between these two provides some amusement if you take your humour black. The evidence is in that Glad despises Morrison – after all, what’s not to despise. Here’s a creep who exploited an archived photo from a memorial service for kids killed by a drunk driver to disguise a secret trip for Fathers Day during lockdown and package his narcissistic, sociopathic self as Dutiful Dad.

For her part, Glad has never claimed celestial endorsement, indulged in furtive touchies of unsuspecting disaster victims, spent lockdown with a personal photographer, displayed a telling lack of curiosity about too-close-to-home rape allegations, suggested that March4Justice protestors should be grateful they weren’t shot, had a QAnon BFF or proposed a “multibillion-dollar program to build new mass detention facilities in Australia for asylum seekers who were living in the community on bridging visas” (remind you of a particular, historical precedent anyone…anyone?). The list of this guy’s awfulness is far too long to indulge here in a rant that started out as a piss-take of Gladdy Two-shoes… I’ll move on.

Gladdy is not looking for a house to haunt, rather that signature tormented, mournful expression of hers has served her well when confronted with uncomfortable questions. When under ICAC scrutiny of dodgy deals it came to light that Dirty Dazza McGuire had been pizzling her mimsy the sympathy flowed all Glad’s way. The mums of NSW tut-tutted and tsk-tsked that Dazza had done her wrong – perhaps remembering their own deflowering by a big-noting deadbeat behind a nightclub dumpster? That’s unfair. I’ll venture into the dangerous territory of mansplaining by suggesting it’s probably natural sympathy for a woman making it in the testosterone-laden world of politics in a party for whom misogyny is a KPI.

What is becoming apparent is that her Miss Prissy has way more in common with Morrison’s Foghorn Leghorn than just compliance with the traditional Tory practices of pandering to wealth interests, unapologetic rorting, corruption, flogging of public assets and exploitation of our natural and historical heritage.

The chutzpah of trumpeting abject failures as triumphs, the hubris, the gaslighting and the testiness at being challenged – these are not from the Introduction To Utter Bastardry guidebook that is Tory essential reading. It’s Ms 55% as she really is, snickering in a press conference about the possibility of Delta spreading to Labor states, comfortable with the notion that some, the disposables, are to be sacrificed at the alter of mammon.

She’s no Jacinda Ardern, nor an Angela Merkel, she’s not Julia Gillard’s example for young women, she’s just a gold standard mini-Mo surrounded by a claque of morally bankrupt grifters championing the failed neo-con experiment to corporatise society; previous metaphors aside, she’s the frog to Morrison’s scorpion in a strange pact of mutually assured destruction should the Delta run rampant and sink Morrison’s re-election chances and shred her reputation.

Gladys may not be as reprehensible as Morrison but lately she’s been giving it her best shot.

    Gladbags lacks the spine to be a competent leader, the will to achieve anything for NSW voters and the ability to manage a disaster like the present COVID pandemic. Her uncaring disregard for voters over 72 who may be denied hospital treatment by direction in the event COVID follows the predicted exploding outbreak, as has happened in the USA (United States of Apartheid), England 30,000 new case per day and counting) or Basil merely demonstrates that her interest is personal pecuniary interests rather that common good.

    “Gladdy is not looking for a house to haunt,…” She’s out of luck there anyway Saint Scotty of the Marketing has that completely sown up. He’s haunting the whole country and for the moment there is no end in sight of him moving into the glowing light of Rupert…ah, I mean the magical kingdom of the sky fairy…nope, Rupert sounds right.

    When it comes to Gladys and fading Gold standards, I’m reminded that “All that glitters is not gold!”


    Gladys Gold standard, (in more ways than one) , follows the principles to her party, consciously and deliberately allowing herself to be manipulated by Scummo , and that will be her everlasting legacy. She displays no principles, just those of her party; deviousness, dishonesty and cowardice. She attempts to garnish the sympathy of migrant women by claiming she’s an immigrant herself, yet swears allegiance to a party that hates immigrants.
    In a way I’m glad I don’t have to see her face at 11 am every morning. I’d rather watch a real bin chicken scavenging in the garbage, they do something useful for the environment

    The L/NP are a dysfunctional, heartless and leaderless cabal of despicable opportunists.
    In particular ScoVid Morrison the master of lockdowns believes that success is the ability to go from one total failure to another total failure with no loss of enthusiasm or any sign of a guilty conscience or any shame. The L/NP are a leaderless rabble and a train wreck.
    There is no challenge too small for Morrison to fail to rise too.”Its not a race” and “I don’t hold a hose mate” is loser talk for failures, SlowMo.
    Once you strip away the blatant and flagrant copious corruption, the obvious and absolute poor judgement, the glaring insidious incompetence and the totally inept governance standards, what does the L/NP actually stand for? What is left? What is left is a sneering, arrogant and selfish ideology that nurtures and promotes corrupt to the core spivs and con artists, degenerate misogynistic misfits and egotistical born to rule privilaged sociopaths and psychopaths that are devoid of standards, values, morals, ethics and empathy always rorting, fiddling, obfuscating and lying. The L/NP are not fit to hold any public office.
    P.S. It is treasonous for a government to turn a friendly major trading partner into an angry enemy as the L/NP have blatantly done.
