Greg Sheridan was right! About Julie Bishop that is…

Julie Bishop stuffed up Treasury, and now she's stuffed up Foreign Affairs. Luckily Tony Abbott is on the ball in that portfolio...

    Agree Phil. His actual chest-beating in QT just now was a sight to behold. All he needs to do know is swagger along dragging his knuckles on the ground and he will officially be the missing link!

    Hairy-crotched or no, it doesn’t matter what gender a politician is — it is all about substance, or lack thereof.

    Julie has shown no substance or trustworthiness. TA has shown no honesty or trustworthiness (and more than his share of chimpanzee genes). Poor member for North Sydney … has shown no real ticker (he sighs mournfully as a preamble whenever he asks a question in QT.

    Andrew Robb needs to go back on sick leave and Chris Pyne needs to stop taking ‘irritating pratt pills’.

    Funny thing — every male ‘ve come across is hairy-crotched. Meaningful insult? I think not.

    Julie Bishop should learn one important principle: If you have nothing to say – say nothing.
    Now, I would be really scared to travel overseas on my Australian genuine passport. The whole world has been notified that our travel docs may be false. Thanks, Julie.

    I was watching the Question Time this afternoon. There was a striking contrast between the performance of our two political parties: The Liberals seem to come to the Chamber totally unprepared. It is not only Julie Bishop who does not know how to do her homework. Her colleagues are just as bad.

    David there is much you find surreal hear petal and that worries me.
    For now and by way of counseling, I wouldn’t let it worry you unduly.

    Michael, I don’t think you should be to quick to pass judgement on the sanity of others. People in glass houses……..

    I’m not passing judgement on his sanity – that judgement came in some time ago – but I do find it outrageous how he can vilify, demean, humiliate and generally besmirch Julia Bishop because she is a female and the feminists in this forum, who are in plague proportions, stand by ad fiddle with their knitting.

    Par for the course with that particular poster.

    Ms Bishop is just following the Fiberal line, go in hard and Bullshit and then act dumb. David Sanderson, thats a big call about jimmiek & micheal , but a right call. They are testing new drugs , to top up their pensions. The fiberals cannot sack her, the front bench is a bit thin on talent, Wilson Tuckey from the back bench ?
