Australia: product of a broken home

Australia's same-sex parents -- Julia Gillard and Christine Milne, that is -- are splitting up. Gay marriage is obviously a bust. Crikey's cartoonist tackles the Greens dummy-spit.

    The intro is a First Dog classic.

    The final frame pretty much sums it up…if I could just add how the govt allowed the supermarkets to dud our dairy farmers. Even the Coalition didn’t agree with that – so it must be really really really evil.

    Shouldn’t we be moving into a share household sometime soon? Learning to burn things and where the laundrette is?

    Dearest Doggest De La Luna Mio Mine!
    OHHH! brilliant doesn’t begin to say enough about how wonderful this one is!! Yep, this one is right up there on the top of the charts, and I think should definitely be a poster, forthwith.
    Yours ever truly, though recently less verbose,

    From the intro at top….to punchline at the bottom.
    You’ve outdone yourself today FD.

    P.S. I can already hear the dulcet tones of that Marlton fellow, plagiarising your work on Sunday morning radio.

    so many words. I hate it when I have to read instead of looking at the pictures

    The Greens said “it’s not me it’s you” and the PM responded “I said sort of `thanks, rightio’ and that was it.”

    The Greens couldn’t enter a campaign with a written agreement with any of their opponents, so it’s not really surprising or news or possible that it would have continued if the government had done everything on the hastily-added-to list. It took them this long because they read the poll that has their support as low as it’s been for years.

    Well thank goodness neither party is bound to pursue those pesky shared principles any longer; must be a weight off both their minds.

    Anyone have any bright ideas about what a Green voter should do with their second preference this election ? At the moment it feels like a contest between the undeserving and the unthinkable.

    Brilliant FD, absolutely brilliant. Yep, the party’s over. It would be cheaper for the taxpayer if the Labor Party just gave the governance of this country to the conservative Coalition.

    The thought of the Coalition running this country gives me strangles. Whereas the thought of the present administration continuing is alarming. Where are history’s great movers and shakers when we really need them? Xerxes, Alexander, even Genghis Bloody Khan, help!

    And thanks to the entire farce pretending to be the fourth estate, but doing a fabulous impersonation of the oldest profession, (say anything and do anyone for money), it will be at least a generation once abbo and his friends get in before any of the issues in the last frame will even be discussed let alone ignored, used as a football or dog forbid, resolved.
    I bet the dogs two mothers and happy sperm donor are proud of this one; or was that two dogs mother?

    “Gay marriage”/Bernadizm …..? Core, that koala looks kinda cute?

    […… and that cute looking young girl on the beach, isn’t that bucket of burley upside down? Maybe it’s frozen….?]
