Recent days have seen a widespread outpouring of concern for refugees fleeing the broken country that was once Syria. I suppose this is positive, in some way, that now there is a focus on the plight of nearly 12 million displaced individuals. There is now broader awareness of the fact that over 220,000 people have died in the conflict, and that almost one and a half million people have been injured [See: http://syriasurvey.aa.com.tr/%5D. And, of course, we are now preparing to aim more bombers in the general direction of the Daesh ‘death cult’ that has infiltrated Syria from Iraq. There’s … Continue reading Better Late?

In yet another leak from the ranks of the ailing government, it was revealed that a weekend brain-storming session was convened in the Prime Moron’s Office (PMO), and that a unanimous decision was made to use asylum seekers from offshore detention centres as live bait to draw terrorists from their suburban spider-holes. In light of recent revelations about the continued use of live baiting for the ‘blooding’ of racing dogs all around Australia, an idea was formed in the bright minds running the PMO. Convening a secret meeting on Sunday morning, the PMO facilitated a brain-storming session to capitalise on the … Continue reading Tony and The Greyhounds Save Australia
Australia is to develop a fleet of tsunami generators to wreak revenge on foreign powers who ignore this great nation’s pleas for clemency, PM abbott said on Sunday. He reminded Indonesia that Australia was “exceedingly generous and, aah, helpful” in the aftermath of the 2004 Boxing Day Tsunami. He further stated that if planned executions went ahead, Australia would “certainly find ways to make our displeasure felt.”* When questioned on what those ways might be, abbott responded, with a sparkle in his eye, “those little buggers better know how to swim. If they haven’t learnt from, aah, observing my stroke, well, … Continue reading We Will Tsunami You
Distraction. The only thing our fantastical and terrible Federal government is good at. Distraction. Here’s a little 3-dot-point list of (some of) the failures of this government, and the actions employed (by design or by pure luck) to distract from them. 1. Promises made in campaign-mode – Broken (too many to put a number on). A plane disappears (MH370). “Look over there! Look, I will find that plane. Look, the world has made me the king of plane-finding.“ Operational result: FAIL Distraction result: 100% 2. A Federal budget so horrible, that it remains un-passed even as we draw closer to … Continue reading Look Over There! No, Not There; Over There!!

* – Originally posted back in March of 2014. I’m re-posting because I’m angry again, and I have added some update. Look what you’ve gone and done. Like a spoilt child having a tantrum in the confectionery aisle… I’m a bit very angry at present. But I should be clear here – I don’t hate ‘Australia’, but I do (even though I know that hate is usually unwarranted and will probably one day make me sick and then kill me) hate the blind, ignorant, selfish, hypocritical cretins who aspire to be better than everyone else, and think they’re somehow special, … Continue reading I Fucking Hate You, Australia
