Tony, we knew you’d set the bar low, but who’d a thunk you’d bury it?

Tony, we knew you’d set the bar low, but who’d a thunk you’d bury it?

Hey truth seekers, after the embarrassing spectacle that was laughingly called

Bronny "Helmet hair" Bishop

Bronny “Helmet hair” Bishop

parliament, where the propriety enforcer, Bronny “helmet hair” Bishop, commonly known as the new Madame Speaker, and within minutes of taking her place of (and I use the term loosely) “honour”, endorsed the use of schoolyard name calling, which was subsequently ratified by the LNP, in a vote.

Now considering that only yesterday, the LNP en-mass spoke solemnly of the need for “Gentler and Kinder” government where, according to Bronny herself, MP’s full titles were to be respected and used, It shows that the “Adults” are worse than the kids   😯

With the whole pathetic saga ringing in our ears, from the collective head shaking of true adults everywhere, I thought it would be fun to see what nicknames could be attached to our illustrious yet totally dishonourable MP’s,

So I throw this thread open for truth seekers  suggestions on appropriate nicknames .

ENJOY!

BTW, Tony, we knew you’d set the bar low, But who’d a thunk you’d bury it?

    Well that`s it then,the Rudd detractors have won their day
    Yup they took out what may have been a blight on their own consciences
    You see this right wing lunacy before us now that is run by the Lycra Loonie is in it`s way akin to Rudd in 2007
    Albeit Rudd never swore his ministers to toe his secrecy line he did however demand a heavy workload and a 24/7 commitment.
    What`s akin about it all is that the ministers are toeing their PM`s line.
    So is there a left leaning group within the Liberals who think that Abbott has/is going too far?
    You bet your grand childrens state schooling there is not.
    Yet in Labor there is/has been a right leaning group since Keating made his first push against Hawke.
    This group had a charismatic and clever strategist who gathered to himself those who would use politics as a power grab and had a structured Party already set up as a vehicle to further their ends.
    In that being we started to see the “blue collar” rise through workers union and local town popular identity`s lose out to lawyers and right faction stacked pre selection for seats.
    The voters were still working class and their last working class hero Bob Hawke had been put down and out of his misery by the right faction`s hero Paul Keating.
    Right then and there I was one of the many detractors of this happening but was shouted by the faithful.
    They told me it`s still Labor and they were fighting Tories which is all that matters.
    You see if we analyse why Johnny Jump Up got in we can see the hypocrisy that Labor showed it`s faithful and why they switched off for so long.
    Remember the parliamentary dining room table and Keating`s desk? imported.
    His penchant for Italian suits and his belittling of Australian manufacturing?no
    Well most do not because Keating started to bring us into global hegemony whether we liked it or not.
    It was the beginning of global corporatism gaining the foothold it has now.
    His currency deregulation[floating the dollar] and sale of the Commonwealth Bank were the corporatists tools required to whiteant our Sovereignty and to embrace Corporation America as the Globalisation Imperialist.
    12 years of wandering in the political desert saw the right faction bring forth their men.
    Kim Beazley the silver spooned son of Labor who had he had his father`s ilk would have been a true Lefty.
    This was not to be he was “new Labor” updated so to speak,right faction.
    Why did he fail to usurp Johnny Jump Up?
    Not enough of the old faithful believed Labor was the Labor of old.
    Their votes were going to the Left still,the Greens along with city slickers who saw the Greens as a protestant group and garnered old/new hippies and yuppies and grew.
    So Labor tried a Keating Golem [the one who had no brain and dug a hole killing the whole tvillage for those who do not know the story] in Mark Latham.
    Yes that`s who we need the right faction said,a head kicker like Keating.
    But they had a Golem for sure,a head with no brains and a big mouth capable of holding both his feet.
    After 12 years in the wilderness the right faction needed a better man,
    The Centre/Left had one,he was popular,he led the leftist within with a honed honesty unseen since Hawke.
    So the right faction put him forward and the faithful recognised the old true Labor again returning with vigor and happiness.
    Once the Labor right faction regained political power in Australia they began dismantling the very vehicle that got them there again.
    The rest is all recent history folks,gotta zip.
    OH PS enjoy the right factions Electricity Bill.

      Biggy, let’s hope that they can now move back to their grass roots support, as the decks are cleared of the last period of destabilisation. 😉

      Even though I’ve been prepared to give Shorten the benefit of the doubt, in the hope that I got it wrong, I still think that they went for the wrong man in Shorten, and the problem now is that if it is shown that he can’t cut it, then it’s too late, as any attempt to oust him will be portrayed as just more of the same “Old “Labor. 😦

    Abbott regrets mum’s separation from baby

    Prime Minister Tony Abbott has expressed his regret that a female asylum seeker was separated from her newborn baby and says the only way to prevent a repeat is to stop the boats.

    “If you want to avoid these things you’ve got to stop the boats,” Mr Abbott said on Friday in Colombo, Sri Lanka, where he is attending the Commonwealth Heads of Government (CHOGM) meeting.

    “I don’t, as it were, apologise for what happens when people come to Australia illegally by boat.”

    The mother was moved off Nauru so her baby could be delivered in Australia by Caesarean, but was reportedly moved back to a Brisbane detention centre while her newborn son remained in hospital.

    http://news.theage.com.au/breaking-news-world/abbott-regrets-mums-separation-from-baby-20131115-2xluy.html

    then, on Twitter, the LNP trolls moved in to support Abbott.
    one example.

    Yeah sure the baby is sick but what if our babies get infected by its illegality then we will have a nation of delinquent babies what then
