They shouldn't have paid a cent for him (or any other person in parliament)... but why should we expect anything less from the waste of space in Canberra

$700,000? Chicken feed. How about spending $25,000,000 trying to buy a temporary seat on the UN Security Council? We probably won't even be able to buy our way in, even at $25 mill., but if Finland gets it (Finland spent about $2 mill.)...

Even that is chicken feed compared to other ways our government manages to throw money away.

I meant to ask earlier: What loss of life/lives are you talking about? Whatever it is, is it less or more than the lives continuing to be lost on the leaky boats that don't actually make it all the way here?

The same "attampt" the Liberals called good policy?

And I have never refered to the current government as smooth running.




Ford fans be proud. History of Australian motor racing shows Ford has been and will always be superior. They have to slow them down when they get serious about racing. The Phase 4 scared the **** out of people, they banned it. Sierra gets called on a technicality, Falcon EF "...had its wings clipped to make Holden part of the show", AU not allowed to show it's potential, Falcon BF gets clipped. Mustang Is so good Supercars made up a rule and gets a bag of cement in the roof, and it still wins.

That's a pretty naive view Zac. I thought you were more.....worldy....than that.

Having a seat on the UN Security Council a significant achievement, especially with the huge vote we got.

Finland tried to do it on the cheap and got smashed in the voting.

It's just a bribe fest though. We go to 54 African countries and 30+ Latin and Caribbean countries and just give them more money than everyone else to get the vote.

Oh, or you can be black like Rwanda.

The Libs will have to act shortly.

No No Abbotts polling has got worse. More than 2/3s of the people don't want him.

Which makes me wonder. The Libs have some good people but at the moment they have all the clowns on front bench
They've been hi-jacked by the loonie right

Too true, and ain't it grand


----------------------------------------------------------

Ain't it also grand the way the Libs are making themselves look like ****en idiots, Abbott is sitting on his hands too scared of the repercussions and that looney Bishop is like a mongrel attack dog.

They have nothing and the know it, there is no smoking gun, if they had one they would have trotted it out by now.

They sook about personal attacks, but it is OK for them to do this current attack on our Prime Minister.

****ing losers

Julia Bishop should be made to resign over how much time the rabid bitch has wasted in question time this week only to be made to look like a hypocritical moron!!

I strongly object to her being paid by Australian tax-payers at all, she has a job to do as an elected representative and she is not doing it!!

Abbott has been made to look like a friggin clown too, makes you wonder who really is running the Liberal party? Not Tony, that's for sure!!

New Commodore Hey! So you used your own money? Would you like to buy a used bridge?

Guys can we tone down the descriptors used for the pollies please?
Whilst I agree with you that many seem to be a wast of space let us remember that they are still part of the human race and not deserving of some of the things said.

Actually Gerry i strongly disagree with what you have said.

You only have to look at the behaviour of these elected representatives to realise they deserve every bit of **** thrown at them.

I don't see a problem with anything that has been posted on this subject.

They deserve it plus some

Seems the document released today lands her firmly and squarely in the big pile of poo she can't recall compiling.....and Bishop has to go after her, not Abbott, because when he did she got all teary because the big bad bully man said mean things to her....

She's gone.

Thank God for that.

If any of you object to what I just wrote I won't be able to recall writing it - sorry.

Would you like your wife referred to with some of the descriptors used - I'm not talking about your ex!

A CONFIDENTIAL transcript released today to damage Julia Gillard will be used by the Prime Minister to show she had nothing to do with the operation of an organisation set up for union officials.

The recorded conversation makes clear she did not have access to bank accounts or any role in the functioning of the private organisation which allegedly misused money collected from companies.

So you're just as bad a Gillard?


Like all the "evidence" the Libs dig up, it will be selectivly edited and blown out of proportion. Gillard is going from one mess to the next and the dumb libs still can't unseat her.

It's a pity the media is so far up Abbotts ass otherwise I wounder what dirt is under his and his partys carpet.
