Is she in your thoughts and prayers? :P

Most definitely thoughts 

although I’m not sure the Christian church would approve of them

You can still vote liberal and think Morrison is a good PM, and also admit that he cocked up on this one.

Your fandom of him is way over the top, it’s like he can do no wrong in your eyes and any admission he got it wrong would you becoming a communist 

I love Lucy Zelic, I really do, she’s ace, but I’ll admit that she got it wrong in the Stajic matildas thing 

surely you can see that at the very least the PM sodding off on holiday during a major national disaster was a mistake even if not in practical terms, but in political terms.

its ok you can still love him afterwards 

No my fandom of him is not over the top and of course nobody's perfect , even Prime Ministers.

The irrational hatred for him is over the top and that's what I'm reacting to.

Look there will be a chance to vote him out in a couple of years or sooner. In the meantime accept the situation , live with it don't be consumed and blinded by hatred ( and undoubtedly that's what it is ) of what he does.Like I said it's self destructive.

As a political Bridget McKenzie is shown to be at the bottom of the barrel

Bridget McKenzie gave 'spare' $150,000 to shooting study rather than major games for intellectually impaired https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/feb/14/bridget-mckenzie-gave-spare-150000-to-shooting-study-rather-than-major-games-for-intellectually-impaired?CMP=Share_AndroidApp_Copy_to_clipboard

Are you that naïve to think  that any Federal government would create its own ICAC.

What so Federal  Labor heavies might be jailed just like their State counterparts Obeid and Ian McDonald,

Again , former Labor numbers man Graham Richardson's  book " Whatever It Takes " comes to mind.

If crimes are committed then those responsible should suffer the conseqences of their actions regardless of politics or party.....it's called the rule of law.....you know like the laws people like us are meant to abide by. I can't wait to see someone front up to the police or a a judge and tell him he's naive and hand over a copy of Richo's book as a defence.......:rofl:

No you have totally misunderstood what I said , never said  there shouldn't be a Federal  ICAC and am happy to be shafted.

Just stating my opinion that ANY Federal government  would not bring it in because it might blow back on some like it has in NSW. And Ian McDonald was jailed but then released and is awaiting retrial so the whole ICAC NSW experience would have put the Feds off I think.

Don't jump in so quick without understanding what I said. Not like you ( maybe ?)

Scumbo thought this had gone away.

Abetz the attack dog asks a question that allows the Audit Office to respond in a Senate Committee  with the truth that McKenzie And Scumbo have misled parliament and the electorate 

Analysis: Can you spot the words that landed Scott Morrison in a sea of political grief?

Thank you for your attendance at the first meeting of the ACAT WSF Socialist Alliance meeting 

In true left wing politics style we couldn’t reach a decision on if we are Left, Centre Left or just a bit left of centre 

I propose that we have a secondary meeting in which shall vote on the exact position of our left ness, this will require a two thirds majority..

I also propose the use of gender neutral terminology so we will have a chairperson again this will be voted on but requires a simple 50% majority although in the case of tie it will be...

Yours 

S Bellend 

from the quite a bit left, probably left of centre but not far left (what is far left anyway) faction (but andrew bolt would consider extreme left)

Lol, not sure there’s a quorum. Most don’t want to admit their socialism love. 

Besides, although you remembered to use gender neutral terminology, you forgot to address white privilege by having a diversity quota!

I'm not convinced that the tabouleh at the meeting was ethically sourced, and am leaving to form my own party.

Yours

marron,

a teensy bit left of the quite a bit left, probably left of centre but not far left (what is far left anyway) faction (but andrew bolt would consider extreme left), especially when it comes to water usage and importation of parsley

I'm tempted to make a statement in response but I don't want to be the centre of attention.
