Stability, Promises The PM Who Was Elected Eight Weeks Ago…

“With the Liberal Party, you know what you are going to get,” says the unelected PM who replaced the elected PM causing the surprise by-election.

He was speaking to the voters of Wentworth about the dangers of electing an independent.

The Liberals are all over the dangers of the “wrong” result on Saturday. It could cause a hung Parliament. And the last time we had a hung Parliament, we had a PM who – according to Alan Jones – should have been put in a chaff bag and thrown into the sea. And, in spite of all his support for farmers, Scott doesn’t want to end up in a chaff bag…

However, I was more concerned with Scott’s popular culture reference:

“It’s like the good old box of chocolates — you never know what you are going to get when it comes to voting independent.”

Now, it may come as a surprise to some of you, but chocolate boxes actually have things which tell you which flavour is which. However, I suspect that, like the reports they commission, the Liberals feel that they don’t have time to read anything which tells them what they’re likely to get.

The reference is – of course – from “Forest Gump”, as opposed to the recent remake “Forest Trump” where a simple man was urged to run for President, and owing to his refusal to bog himself down with reality, found himself elected.

Speaking of which, Trump has promised retaliation if the Saudis are found to be behind the disappearance of the journalist. I guess this means that if he finds the Saudis responsible he’ll bomb Iraq like George W did. Or Iran because it’s almost the same!

Anyway, back to Scott’s assertion that you don’t know what you’re getting with an independent…

One has to admire his chutzpah…

No really, there’s legislation in Parliament that says one has to admire the current government…

Or am I getting confused with the Pauline motion about it being ok to be white… It lost, so next time she comes into the Senate wearing a burqa, she can claim that she was just hiding her whiteness.

I had intended to write about how the whole drought thing is just a conspiracy from the National Party to convince us that climate change is real and we need to give money to farmers.

Or to point out that South Australia has electricity blackouts so it must be wind farms again because storms have never caused blackouts where coal-fired power stations are involved.

Ah, it’s a confusing week. And it’s only Monday.

    A lovely way to end the day – Thanks Rossleigh

  2. New England Cocky

    Well Rossleigh, we now know this morning 161018 that the underlying reason for the sacking of Turdball and Bishop was their personal opposition to Trumpery pursuing Zionist policies at the behest of NY Jewish community to move the USA (United States of Apartheid) Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

    Today’s Liarabral Prim Monster Scat Morriscum and his religious mates in the CIA (Christians in Absentia) are playing Deputy Dawg, just like Little Johnnie “Flakjacket” Howard, and pushing the Zionist line that displacing Palestinian ethnic persons from their traditional homes for the benefit of Jewish immigrants from everywhere, especially the former USSR, is a humane policy.

    Rather, it is to ensure political funding from the US Zionists in the run up to the mid term US Congressional elections.

    Naturally in the Wentworth bye-election held on Saturday 20/10/2018, David Sharma, the former Ambassador to Israel and likely a committed Zionist, will benefit in this electorate having a high Jewish population.

    Any other country would call the Australian parliamentary posturing, back flips and prat falls comedy, we call it government.

    A laugh a minute, if the MSM reported as factually as you do, Rossleigh.

  4. Kronomex

    And now it appears that Scummo is doing a “monkey see, monkey do” regarding The Donald, who is his hero. The madness keeps growing.


    If the LNP was a box of choclate they would be entirely made up of the two most horrible sweets that no one wants, like Crunchy Frog or Lark’s Vomit. If we do wind up with a hung (we can only dream) parliament, how long will it take before we see the beginning of the end for the pastor?

    Trump’s version version of repercussions will be along the lines of only selling the Saudis 99,999,999 rounds of cannon ammunition instead of the agreed upon 100,000,000. That’ll teach ’em you can’t mess with The Donald.

    Fantastic, Rossleigh, you are not confused at all!

    ( re: above photo; I counted four women, Ladies, I mean, they are from the Right after all…how many or how few today? )

    By moving the Australian embassy to Jerusalem, the LNP would be doing their bit to maintain instability to the Middle East. What do they wish to achieve compete with Trump for pariah status? There may be a good proportion of Jews in Wentworth, that does not mean they are all supportive of the extreme Netanyahu government.

  7. helvityni

    Keith, I spent some time reading some Guardian, it is obvious it’s not Rossleigh who is confused, it’s the Liberals, and as I see it on many issues, even about Pauline’s very black and white utterances…

  8. Peter F


    “that does not mean they are all supportive of the extreme Netanyahu government.” Since when has this ‘government’ ever put its collective mind into gear before speaking?

  9. Diannaart

    Confusion reigns in Canberra:

    Staffers working for Attorney-General Christian Porter are to blame for government senators voting for a motion declaring “It’s OK to be white”.
    Pauline Hanson on Monday brought forward the motion, which also declared “anti-white” racism was on the rise in Australia.
    The phrases have been used by far-right groups to stoke racial division.
    Prime Minister Scott Morrison says the government’s support was “regrettable” and Mr Porter says it was his office’s fault.
    “An early email advising an approach on the motion went out from my office on this matter without my knowledge,” Mr Porter said in a statement on Tuesday.
    “This one was not escalated to me because it was interpreted in my office as a motion opposing racism.
    “The associations of the language were not picked up. Had it been raised directly with me those issues would have been identified.”


    This time, it wasn’t Labor wot dunnit, t’was the workers. Of course.

  10. RomeoCharlie29

    I read somewhere that Cormann blamed the “whites are persecuted” mix-up on the huge workload facing the Senate. Yet elsewhere it’s reported they have little to do because there’s no legislation coming through. Don’t they see Pauline’s cleverness? Now she can point to those Labor, Green and Independent Senators who do think it’s not ok to be white. Cue upsurge in right wing nut job comment, starting with the Israeli apologist, Greg Sheridan.

  11. Kampbell

    But haven’t the wind turbines in SA caused a shocking wind shortage in the rest of the country? Better build a few more coal fired power stations to power the fans required to blow the wind turbines… Better get Captain Morrison onto that ASAP.

  12. Terence Mills

    Like Lemmings, the coalition in the Senate, both Liberal and Nationals, allowed themselves to be duped into voting for Pauline Hanson’s dog-whistle to the white supremacists and almost got her motion through (28-31.)

    Senator Cormann said the government originally resolved to oppose the motion when Senator Hanson flagged it in September. He blamed an administrative error for Coalition senators being directed to back it on Monday.

    The administrative error could well be that the coalition has been infiltrated by far-right factions who will vote for anything that Labor and the Greens oppose and of course it is in the interests of the coalition to be seen by Pauline Hanson to be supporting One Nation nonsense.

    Despite losing the vote by three votes, Hanson took the vote to be a win and was seen thanking coalition senators for their support.

    There is something very sick happening in our parliament and we need an election urgently !

  13. David Bruce

    Seems the George Soros funded Antifa gangs have motivated my kids and their generation to fight for their rights as whites (but they aren’t racists…). Seems divide and rule is still the mantra and problem-reaction-solution is manipulated by the not so invisible hand?
    It would be funny if it wasn’t so serious

  14. Bronte ALLAN

    Well said Rossleigh! Yes, we do know what we get with ALL these f*cking liberals–lies, more lies, no real energy policies, denial of any climate change, obscenely over-paid so-called “parliamentarians” (sic), flat earth believers, right wing idiots & religious zealots–just to name a few!! As for these so-called “over worked” liberal senators, WTF!!

  15. Keith

    xPM Howard has a sense of humour when he stated that the LNP have provided a stable government:
    3 PMs in 5 years ..
    xDeputy Prime Minister on backbench, with another perhaps heading that way ..
    Pro Natzi vote in Senate, at least it was recanted ..
    Religious freedom nonsense ..
    Environment Minister insulting foreign dignitary ..
    Heating up Middle East with view of moving Embassy ..
    Anti science view shown by attitude to climate change ..

    Insight is not a characteristic displayed.

    Eric Abetz ought to take smiling lessons (see photo above)….
