Fat cat gold medallist   29/5/2013

A few of our union leaders are useless, self-serving bludgers. Not all, I emphasise. But this union hack would beat them by the length of the straight.

Desperately seeking grievance   

Good one, Eddie. Goes to show the idiots are not just in the outer. This whole affair has been overblown from the get-go. Adam Goodes is an outstanding representative of his people, a brilliant footballer and a persuasive and eloquent speakers. But regrettably, he was behind the door when they handed out good looks. Buddy must have hip and shouldered him there. And that, I suspect, was what the silly kid was referencing. Seems the only thing wrong with Adam’s skin is that it’s too thin. Triple Brownlow Medallist Bobby “The Chimp” Skilton must be having a nice old chuckle in his sickbed.

Taxpayer-funded crap   28/5/2013

Great artists are revered for their pursuit of truth, their celebration of nature’s wonders and their massive contribution to the advance of civilization. State-funded art, on the other hand, often produces absolute shite. Literally!

DIFFICULT territory is a cornerstone of the visual arts so artist Mikala Dwyer knew it would be confronting last night when she invited Balletlab dancers to empty their bowels as part of a performance at the Australian Centre for Contemporary Art.

Cover-up   22/5/2013

As Bolta infers, if this report involved Tony Abbott, it would be all over the blats and the box.
Listen from 36.50.
Bigger than Texas, so to speak.

In this time of loss and sadness it’s a comfort to know that loved ones remain to give us joy and comfort. Judy loved this pair almost as much as her own.

Bye Jude   14/5/2013

With great sadness we farewell the lovely, funny, adventurous, kind and generous Judy O’Toole, who passed away early today after a courageous, uncomplaining battle with that dastardly disease.
We are all better people for having known and loved her.

Black power   13/5/2013

Getting sucked in on a massive scale:

Sagittarius A*, a supermassive black hole with about 4 million times the mass of our sun, has trapped a giant cloud of gas and dust in its huge gravitational field and is pulling it inexorably inwards, at about 8 million km/h.

Lying Left   8/5/2013

Tony Abbott doesn’t have to worry about putting his foot in his mouth. He’s got dishonest opponents only too willing to do it for him.
Abbott made this perfectly reasonable point in defending his paid parental leave scheme:

We do not educate women to higher degree level to deny them a career. If we want women of that calibre to have families, and we should, we have got to give them a fair dinkum chance to do so,” he said. “That is what this scheme of paid parental leave is all about. It is long overdue. I am proud that the Coalition has come swiftly into the 21st century where this is concerned.”

Whining, dishonest politicians from the Left interpreted this as a slight on women judged as not of high calibre. At least, I think that’s what they’re saying. It’s hard to understand the grievous Left as they seem to grizzle on so many fronts.

Cling class   7/5/2013

Blind Freddy, Arthur or Martha, Snowy on the trams or Blowie the dunnyman could have predicted this. For nothing.

A new British study of 18 to 30-year-olds finds thousands still expect their parents to do the most basic chores for them, from laundry to shopping to doing up their flats. Almost half regularly get their parents to give them a lift, a third have their washing done and more than a quarter have asked their parents to help them find a job.

What the hell do academics and educationists think the word “spoil” means?

At the track   3/5/2013

Mixed fortunes at yesterday’s Warrnambool Cup meeting where I backed the Cup winner. My collect paid the admission fee and provided stake for a red-hot tip in the last. Alas, it finished down the track so I went home no poorer or richer than when I arrived. Bit like dancing with your sister. Regrettably, I let an omen quinella slip by. First and second in the fourth at Newcastle were Christian Brother and Ball Boy.
