    This is appalling behaviour on the part of the returnee. He’s fortunate that he was only told that his response was unacceptable. He should have been arrested and prosecuted for offensiveness towards the groups he vilified.

    I’m with Hammy on this. Bring back the noose. Society has become soft, weak, and worm eaten with…rage has robbed me of adequate words…

  3. Tiny Dancer

    Hammy, taking the piss out of the left. Keep going

    Sarcasm?

    Nobody is this dumb.

    Funny I thought!
    Absolutely ridiculous calling for his prosecution. Hammy have you lost your sense of humour?

  6. Alice

    I think Hammy is hamming it up.

    Hammy is just a troll who doesn’t like smart people on the right putting up convincing perspectives that other people might engage. He usually rocks up, does a poo on the floor and rolls in it, hoping it might make other people go away. Best not to feed him or he’ll stink up the place.

    So he looks after all these *and* payes taxes?

  9. Splatacrobat

    A tradie I know puts his occupation on his kid’s school enrollment form as “Astronaut”. That way he cuts out all the calls looking for him to do jobs for free or discounted rates.

    I guess it might work also for tax returns but it might limit any available tax deductions.

    Have you heard of a K2 scheme?

    Seems some British celebs end up paying no tax.

    “The way that K2 and similar schemes work is remarkably simple. Its members redirect their earnings into a Jersey-based trust. The trust then grants interest-free or low-interest loans to members, on which little or no tax is payable. The borrowers then quietly ‘forget’ to repay these loans, which the trust later writes off against the earnings it holds”.

    Maybe Gerard Depardieu should move to Jersey instead of Moscow. At least he could commute back to Paris a lot easier.

    The “Evesham Man” is (or echoes) one of Michael Smith’s correspondents

    If what you you say Michael is ok, this is ok, I just received my tax return for 2011 back from the the Australian Taxation Deprtment. It puzzles me!!! They are questioning how many dependents I claimed.

    Comparing the version that appears there with the one above, it looks as though the newspaper version might have been bowdlerized to avoid attracting the attentions of a Finkelstein.

    I replied: 1 million crack heads; 7.3 million unemployed people , 100,000 people in prisons; Half of Iraq; Half Of Indonesia, The Prime Minister and Tim and 105 persons in the Federal Senate and 308 Members of Parliament.

    Which raises the question “Who’s Jeremy Kyle?”

  12. Grant B

    Which raises the question; what relation is Jeremy Kyle to Tony Abbott?

  13. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Hammy is appalled – again! Break out the champagne.

  14. Cold-Hands

    The penny has dropped. Judith’s photo shows a British newspaper, Michael Smith’s “correspondent” has produced an Australian version.

    Ask not for whom the hamster squeaks …

  16. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    The best thing is – this Evesham man has a social conscience. He is worried that he left someone out. What a nice guy. Terrific of HM’s revenue people to let him know, too.

    Everything for the best. Best of all possible worlds.

  17. blogstrop

    Panglossian describes our deluded and probably complicit media.

  18. Judith Sloan

    Jeremy Kyle is te Jerry Springer of UK TV.

  19. Alfonso

    Indeed, good luck chum.
    If i can’t triple blind 30% of the revenue….call me Goose.

    Mine is the tax bit that pays for DFAT 1st class air travel allowances to Paris.

    Shucks, don’t thank me, just doing what’s right….. ma’am.

    He should have been arrested and prosecuted for offensiveness towards the groups he vilified.

    Hammy, tone it back just a touch. You don’t want to jump the shark too early.

  21. Yobbo

    This is an obvious urban myth, the kind of thing you’d expect to see in a mass e-mail along with some nudie cartoons.

    Are you really this short of content?

  22. Grant B

    This may well be beyond your capabilities Yobbo but try Googling* “Valley News South Wiltshire”.

    * Google is an internet search engine.

  23. JakartaJaap

    Alfonso, I detect a hint of vilification of DFAT 1st class air travel allowances to Paris. I don’t want to be doing a full Hammy on you, but I’ll do a Roxon ‘inappropriate comment’ instead. Let this be a warning. Bureaucrats in 1st class are still people….with feelings….and they work under incredible strain….and…..

  24. Yobbo

    This may well be beyond your capabilities Yobbo but try Googling* “Valley News South Wiltshire”.

    This might come as a surprise to you Grant, but just because someone sent a letter to a local paper telling a story that has been doing the rounds by email for years, doesn’t mean that the story is actually true.

    I think you should try googling “urban legend”.

  25. Yobbo

    You did read the part where the story comes from a reader-submitted letter, right? It’s not an actual news story.

  26. Will

    Yobbo, of course it is a joke. A quite serious joke. A joke made in bitter desperation at the plight of ordianry taxpayers.

    Somewhat like the jokes behind the now deceased iron curtain, like to the Party slogan plastered all over the factory “Long live Comrade Dear Leader” to which the workers daub “on 150 zylots a day” (a factory workers wage).

    Reagan also told a few of these jokes, available on youtube.

    Good to see in this morning’s Sun-Herald that Barry O’Farrell is going to tighten up laws against hate speech. It’s precisely that sort of smart-arse response to a perfectly reasonable question from the Tax Office that should be covered by such laws.

    Free speech is just a furphy to justify the unjustifiable. I think Andrew Bolt and Alan Jones got off very lightly penalty-wise for their hate crimes.

    For one thing they’re both still spilling forth their filth, when they should have been more effectively silenced.

    Some commenters on this blog are quite likely to get their comuppance one day. Then we’ll see some decency here instead of the hatred spilling out of most threads.

  28. Yobbo

    Your talents are going to waste here Hammygar. You need to start a honeytrap blog so the targets of your satire will get sucked into it. Then we can all have a good laugh at them.

    Hoist by own petard.

  30. Grant B

    Yobbo you may be correct and if so I apologise. Do you have a link? I can’t find anything on Snopes.

  31. lotocoti

    they should have been more effectively silenced.

    I think, Hammy, we need a really high profile and straight forward case which all Australians can fully understand.
    Perhaps bringing Gillard to heel for displaying her spiteful thinnist privilege and aiming to hurt via that 10 October 2006 “fat man” comment would be a splendid way of demonstrating that no one can engage in hate speech and escape without sanction.

  32. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B.

    Then we’ll see some decency here

    You’ll have the place all to yourself then, Hammy. What fun you will have.

    The Cat will have migrated to a friendlier country of origin by then.

  33. John Mc

    Some commenters on this blog are quite likely to get their comuppance one day.

    Why? What’s going to happen?

    A totalitarian state is going to be harder on an immoral wuss like yourself, than it is ever going to be on rational, pragmatic, moral people like you find on the Cat. Your case looks like this.

    That’s unless you are actually part of the totalitarian regime who gets to enjoy the spoils. In which case, enjoy it while you can, because you may find it ends like Saddam at the end of a rope. Or at the very least like Peter Slipper, a disgraced old pervert with your lifetime of ill-gotten gains on the line over a minor court case.

    Comuppance, eh? It’s a good thing!

    I believe he’s had an Hameurism.
