    You left out the phone call to the press to be on hand. It was the first thing I thought of on the weekend while on stand-by for a CFA shift. Then the bloody fire went out!

    Woo hoo, you’ve been sorely missed, Mr Dog, welcome back.

    I’m looking at the Brisbane River from my apartment – the water level is lower than predicted so we’ve dodged a bullet. Unlike the poor souls in more watery locations.

    Convince me that the sight of either the PM or Mr Rabbott would bring succour to anyone.

    Did someone veto ‘cunning’?

    I still cant believe the walking armpit actually said “there should be no finger wagging”, when the subject was sticking a finger up someone’s clacker. I just have this vision………… oh forget it.
    The ABC definitely needs the same type of examination. The examining finger would hit Mr Scott in his RIGHT eye. I cant think of a more appropriate place to tell a joke like that and for the head of the abc to be offended on behalf on small asian female doctors would be commendable but for the fact that every other disgusting comment from the right of politics has not received the same outrage. Balance.

    I can’t help but feel that frame 2 is missing a few VIPs. Each of us rejoices in representation at local, state and federal levels, with two each for state and federal bicameral parliaments (except in Qld, something we can actually envy up there). That’s a total of 5 politicians at least who need to be seen to be empathetic, more if its a statewide disaster requiring multiple senators to attend.

    All in all the broom cupboard looks like the best option.

    Welcome back premier pooch.
    You know it’s a busy news day…. When mere fire, flood and compost, have wiped digitgate off the FD front page.
    I fear it’s going to be a long dark year in that broom closet.

    Sure that’s sand that Toady’s shovelling – with Gambaro holding a “colostomy bag” – for the cameras – surely he’s not getting in the way, just getting in some practice?
    And are you sure that’s Toady anyway? Where’s the obligatory “little kid and woman” he’s wearing this voting season? Anyone could wear a bucket and get away with impersonating him?

    Tim did OD on the “digit tale us”, and in front of the cameras.
    He could have had a dry run and run it under the noses of those minders – then told the cricket team to shop around, for a “second opinion with long thin fingers” – or just to go see an aye-aye?

    Fancy discriminating against people who might want a big-handed, blond rugger-bugger having a good grope around their back passage!

    The window in my spare bedroom sprung a leak on Sunday night during the ferocity of ex-Tropical Cyclone Ethelred or whatever it was called by that time.

    I would have loved to have Tony come around with his bucket to catch the drips and I could have lashed him across the frame to shield me from the onslaught.

    But, nowhere to be seen. Typical.
