    Rupert and the Media moguls must be tearing their hair out .

    They do the selling of Julie , so she can take over from Abbott , but as soon as they do she stuffs up again

    You would have to be living in a cave to have missed the blitzkrieg of Julie Bishop puff pieces in recent months. It seems that the only woman in Tony Abbott’s Cabinet may be the solution to all of the Governments woes? I won’t provide links to all these so-called ‘real’ Julie Bishop pieces as they don’t deserve the click through advertising that the publications themselves will make from them. Just Google and you will see for yourself if you have been hiding away from the headlines 😉

    Mr Murdoch may be deciding that Mr Abbott has stuffed up one time too many and is getting ready to replace him as head of our Government. OR, he could just be using the elevation of Julie Bishop in the public’s eye as a distraction from the fact that this Government is pretty much in a stalemate position. Giving the Government’s backers a bit of space to kick their MP’s butts to get the budget through. Obviously before too many Australian’s realise just how worse off the budget really is for them

    Julie Bishop amuses her Twitter followers.Returning from a busy few days as president of the United Nations Security Council, Ms Bishop took time out from her schedule on Sunday night to entertain more than 85,000 Twitter followers by replying to tweets using nothing but Emoji characters.

    After proving herself as a strong presence on the world stage following the MH17 tragedy, Foreign Minister Julie Bishop✓ has earned herself Harper Bazaar’s Woman of the Year award.

    Just because Julie Bishop, our briskly efficacious Foreign Minister, has been busy leading the Australian response to the MH17 disaster, eyeballing President Vladimir Putin and basking in the praise.

    HOW did Julie Bishop, the epitome of political polish and today the most powerful woman in Australian politics, wind up skulling beers from the bottle to wash down a $3 curry

    The talented Miss Julie
    The Sydney Morning Herald‎ – Sep 2013
    The student was Julie Bishop and she wanted to know about a career in diplomacy. … The talented Miss Julie, former champion debater and head prefect of Adelaide’s most prestigious …

    A woman of steel … so what made Julie Bishop cry?
    Herald Sun‎ – Aug 2014
    JULIE Bishop has tears in her eyes. She’s sitting in a hotel room in Myanmar, down the corridor from US Secretary of State John Kerry, while Secret Service agents pace up and down …But it’s not this confrontation, or the relentlessness of the 20-hour days she’s working, that’s led to this crack in her famously steely facade.

      Saw that starting some time ago corny, purile vomitus. Hard to know where it’s going considering old tactics of stacking, especially closing in on election and silent agenda matters. I only see one party- Laberal, including the Greens too often. The chart of the one percent shows unaltered climb, nearing 1920 highs, life in OZ shows a course. US style takeover, without firing a shot back.
      Many who could make change have comfort, and found it other decades, a lot goes over their heads. Those teetering on the chopping blades and bashed to edges of the level playing field have a more discicive view. Unfortunately their pain only delights heights nervous system of self worth and accomplishment and forces more of the same by the insecurity assault above amongst the plastic people and fake jewellery.
      The stacking may be for getting the budget through, too hard to tell what’s genuine, can only go by life to date and coursings.

        Jim,
        the problem is the spin machine is so efficient the suckers believe the bullshit.
        While I was on my holiday we were in America for a bit, mainly because of flight stop overs and my wish to see the Tesla cars.
        The middle class is just about gone there, but one bloke I talked to who lived in a rented apartment , drives a 10 year old car and is on about $50,000 a year insisted he is middle class.
        They play on their psyche.
        To him, now the definition of working class was a person with a couple of part time jobs, cheaper rental area, and surviving pay to pay.
        The unemployed and homeless don’t rate mate
        The gap is wider and wider,
        but they play on the American rubbish of doing better than the next bloke,
        I also met one woman who works 3 [yep three} part time jobs, all on minimum wage of $7.50 an hour and a Union member .
        When I bagged her employer, she got all defensive and started to blame the Chinese , Mexicans etc , and gave me a lecture on how they needed to grow the business to protect his interests .
        The Yanks are mad mate.
        Mad and bloody dangerous because they believe their own hype

          A couple of days ago Vox ran a story about a new Ipsos-MORI poll showing that Americans think the unemployment rate right now is an astonishing 32 percent—higher than during the Great Depression. The correct answer, of course, is about 6 percent. And this is not just a harmless bit of ignorance, like not being able to name the vice president. “It matters,” we’re told, “because the degree to which people perceive problems guides how they make political decisions.”

          I feel it heavy here now too, in politics and media, the same glazed eyed rhetoric and posturing, snake oil salesmen looking for takers.

          Idle wealth.
          Ended up in the company of a US girl here for some months, ex high society and ex US electricty magnate family. She’d speil all that while i was feeding and housing her, had great fun. All in a Southern accent and Gone with the wind theatrics, Hollywoods never far from a lot, I listened to a half hour spiel of the good ol’ mighty and powerful USA, the homeland ,protecter, beside a driftwood fire on the beach, the water was green glowing with phospheressence and patterning in the waves with fish ghosting trails, she’d never seen it before. After she finished and a little silence i said you don’t believe that crap do you. She said Nah! In that drawl.
          She slapped the back of my head on the way past to the water and said You hang onto it sometimes. A preachers daughter. She’d known a few famous people, once interviewed Bob Marley. The best part was sitting for a half hour watchin her swim naked in green phospheressence, playing like a child and pulling poses yelling out look!. An extroadinary light show. I can still see most of it but want it on film. She’d had a hell of a life, Father died and bastard step father moved her on very young. Street wise, smart as a tack. We had the whole no Father upbringing thing bonding. Learnt a bit off each other.
          Lots of hugs and going to sleep on my lap, that’s as far as anything went though i only had to step there. Different relationship. Magic. She had been stuck here, desperate and seducing for security and getting punched around for it. Big eyes, slightly protuding teeth, i nicknamed her Bugs and with the US accent. She had a terrified rabbit in her though. Got her into better company and she moved to the south coast with them.
          There was a big desperation bordering terror and a lot of brave front.
          Written songs about lessor, that ones yet to come. The time was a gift. Don’t know what to make of it to put into lyrics. But you get that.

    What a confidence builder, when a member of Team Australia, our esteemed, battle hardened, war weary Minister of Defence (he initially thought he was Minister of The Fence) announced that, “he wouldn’t trust the Australian Submarine Corporation to build a canoe”.
    I wonder if cornie’s favourite fantasy squeeze is still on the Board of ASC.
    It struck me, that making comments like that already has him in a canoe of the barbed wire variety and situated in a well known minor waterway.
