    Too true, Firsty. Short of closing down News Corp the Opposition Leader can now get away with anything, no questions asked. Literally.

    On September 8 the era of the page three girl will resume.

    I’m with Damian: eat this! Love the bellows.

    The greatest trick the rabbott ever pulled was convincing the electorate that numbers don’t matter in a budget. It’s just a palaver. With sprinkles.

    HOT DOG: Was that Eel Morney or Eel Moray?

    If our Kev had better advisers, and Rupert Murdoch’s minions lost their jobs-We should be so lucky!-the Rabbott only has to pull himself out of a hat and be home (in a canter) and hosed (down) in time to watch the other contenders slugging it out for the minor placings. Woe is me, woe is me.

    Xanax? Thats a Benzo; the last time this unspeakable trash were in we had the PROZAC Nation. We will all need anti depressants and lots of anti-psychotics to make any sense of the urban ape mans abbotocracy. We have had a taste of the future in NSW under fatty and NPWS Snipers, and up in Qld with Napoleon and the bananaheads. Their destruction of hard won rights and years of fighting for the worker and their retirement benefits, perpetrated on a national scale will mean we will all be dining on that passionfruit pav pav and hoping they keep the PBS.

    Why can’t we get just one sum ?
    Why can’t we get just one sum ?
    I guess because they think we’re dumb
    We’ve waited so long, for just one.

    Day after day
    We get angry
    And we say
    That the day is in our sight
    When our leaders talk pure shite

    Stuff the anti-depressants Dr Mick. This great nation of ours was built on booze and plenty of it from the rum corps onwards.
    If it’s good enough for the NSW right, then it’s probably good enough for feral green bastard like me.
    I’ve been secretly restocking the cellar with the gift of the grape for months now. So I figure by Sat week, I’ll have enough to last out the three years.
    Cheers comrades.
