A fabulous interview with Cory Bernardi

Sir, some are calling you Sinator given your crimes against the Liberal Party and humanity. How do you respond Well, Jesus too, was castigated by people who did not understand his true glory. You compare yourself to the Messiah I answer to many names. I use this title not for any personal self-aggrandisement and only […]

An act of infamy

There has been a tragic decline in the standards of political life over the past few decades. Even worse is that not only has the behaviour of politicians declined disgustingly but public acceptance of appalling standards has become the norm. Few things shock us any more but Australia’s Prime Minister has just done something so […]

Julia Gillard impersonates Captain Queeg

Australian Prime Minister, Julia Gillard, has never won the hearts and minds of the nation. Yes, she scrambled enough votes to get the top job but it was not because people liked her. It is a reasonable assumption that a good many voters cast their ballots to achieve the radical change of electing our first-ever […]

Nowhere is this more painfully obvious than in federal politics where a hung parliament after the […]

A dangerous addiction to discipline

Australia’s alternative Prime Minister, Tony Abbott, has come under renewed scrutiny in recent weeks as a bemused electorate wonders what we have to do to get leaders we actually admire. We don’t particularly like Prime Minister Julia Gillard and we think her administration is rather lacking in capabilities and competence. But when we run our […]

Tony Abbott, you’re a goose!

How dumb do you have to be to let Julia Gillard beat you? Well, deposed prime minister Kevin Rudd is still smarting over that issue and for the life of him cannot work out how things went so badly wrong. At the last election, Opposition Leader Tony Abbott reckoned he had her on toast but […]
