    The definition of honest politicians used to be ” one who is when he is bought stays bought”

    Perhaps there are members of the Fourth Estate to which this principal could now be applied

    Paddy; I bet that tin mug is perfect for the odd game of $hitties though? Dropping a coin from between your butt cheeks into a glass doesn’t make the same sound as dropping them into an old tin mug, nor hold the same romantic nostalgia as the favoured game of the boisterous stockmen of days gone by.

    “boisterous stockmen of days gone by” hahaha. It could worser, it could be German beer drinking songs.hahaha

    If Scenarios 1 and 2 both took place in the same hostelry it would serve me right for not finding a better local.

    I’d like to confer, if I may: what’s a Federal Opposition and where would I find one?

    FRACTIOUS: The answer to your question is. In our bloody dreams.

    That is a wonderful cartoon/ appalling cartoon. As a member of the ALP for almost 40 years, I think I’ll just walk into the ocean and keep going until it all stops.

    I don’t find drmick’s “joke” about beating the wife and kids funny at all. The fact that no one else finds it offensive is an even bigger worry. Leave the humour to first dog drmick, and think before you write.

    No wonder Bull Shitten (props, @Klewso) is looking lost, aimless and unknown. ‘Taint no one left to knife in the back. Even the impending prospect of a good ol’ union vs tory stoush can’t seem to raise him from his torpor. The ALP daleks need Davros to do some re-programming.

    What no irony in your diet, or are you just constipated with angst? The only one in step? Ever wonder why?
