    We will never surrender!
    If They thought the last three years was “ill-mannered politics”,
    they’ve not seen anything yet.
    Though tomorrow will be a major battle lost.
    (Hopefully at the cost of balloon boy’s miserable career.)

    There will be a reckoning……

    Hope so Paddy.Its a bit like watching Melbourne Storm. Murdoch bought the game, bought that team, and they won his premiership, breaking every rule in the book, and the game has never been the same since. Murdoch has this politics game in his pocket, he selects either team because he owns both atm, the trash he supports wins the comp, and we all lose; and nothing will be the same again.
    He has casanova fingers; everything he touches, he stuffs.

    Father, why are all the children weeping?
    O they are merely crying, son
    O, are they merely crying, father?
    Yes, true weeping is yet to come

    This is a weeping song
    A song in which to weep
    While all the little children sleep
    This is a weeping song
    But I won’t be weeping long

    At least when “they” come to take me there’ll still be plenty to turn their backs – come their turn there won’t be near as many.

    Jesus, it’s just an election campaign, not the arrival of Pol Pot, Mao or Stalin, all left wing nutbags, just as Hitler and Idi Amin were right wing nutbags.

    On Sunday the world will be just as it was on Saturday morning, there will be very little change in either the short or long term, both our federal parties are pretty similar in most areas.

    Maybe FDOTM should get a grip, god knows he’s not all that funny covering elections, especially not funny when he’s being a fear-mongering tool.

    It’s the way it’s happening. A con job.
