  1. John Mc

    The UK has no advice – or anything else that might be good – to offer the rest of the civilised world in terms of managing immigration.

    And if that dumb Egyptian cow represents any other single citizen in Egypt, I’ll eat my hat or equivalent.

  2. Nanuestalker

    I so wish Mr. G. Bird had got to ask that question. He would never have let it go so easily.

  3. Gab

    As of Oct 2013, Israel has 53,636 asylum seekers. PT.

  4. egg_

    Should have seated Gina Rhinehart next to moaning Mona?

  5. JC

    I’ve never seen such a terrible , biased program such as this one.

  6. james

    They won’t be letting that questioner back again.

    Tim is supposed to be the balance here?

    Out of all the panelists is there any single one that supports the border policy that over half the electorate voted for?

  7. Carpe Jugulum

    Ok troops – interruptions came in at 17.

    I wasn’t expecting that.

  8. Arnost

    So how many asylum seekers does Israel take?

    Great question – isn’t Israel over 90% asylum seeker stock?

  9. will

    I was asking about Australia of course. You still didn’t answer my question.

    perhaps you could visit the south western suburbs of Sydney sometime, to observe how the locals behave…and be intimidated.

  10. Brian of Moorabbin

    Did anyone else see that Tweet:
    “There is no refugee queue. To say otherwise is a lie.”

    WTF?

  11. PT

    Will they settle those asylum seekers permanently?

  12. Infidel Tiger

    What did the audience member say?

    I won’t be watching tonight. Sounds worse than eating a salad made by Bob Ellis.

  13. John Mc

    She was allowed to finish on that rubbish?!! Repulsive.

  14. Gab

    Yeah, I was waiting for that follow up, PT. I don;t know. Will they?

  15. nilk, Iron Bogan

    Leo: I don’t recall the 100K per annum, but yes, Roth did say that we’re not living up to our global responsibilities.

  16. John Mc

    Bob will toss your salad real good!!

  17. Foggyfig

    I have always wanted to know what the UN does with all the money we pay them. Aren’t they supposed to process asylum seekers claims and process those in camps offshore? We should be telling them to get their arses in to gear and process faster.

    Instead of lining their pockets ;)

  18. kruddler

    That Egyptian woman – what a RACIST pig!!! Did you hear the shit she just said about Aussies hating brown and black people? Q&A tonight was the most biased, bigoted program (Tim Wilson excepted) that I’ve ever seen.

  19. Anne

    I think my worser side is being drawn out tonight. We hate black and brown
    people and we are racist, and we should think about who we are US .

    Uh oh…looks like we hate frizzly red heads too.

    PS. I think we’re gonna need another Timmy!

  20. Nanuestalker

    Only 17 because they were to busy agreeing with each other. Tim Wilson is a disaster!

  21. Carpe Jugulum

    I think i’ll soak my brain in paint stripper to remove the taint of that show.

  22. PT

    I think you have to be Jewish to settle in Israel.

  23. nilk, Iron Bogan

    “Andrew Wilson has asked: The death at Manus Island was a tragedy. People are obviously desperate when they’ve paid thousands to people smugglers and have no hope of coming here. Yet why did the ABC show no similar outrage for the thousands of deaths caused by the dismantling of The Pacific Solution?”

    This is not a verbatim quote. Q&A are moderating it for FB. SnowCone wasn’t happy, though. :D I’d suggest you watch it just to see Andrew Wilson in action.

  24. caveman

    interruptions came in at 17.

    There was more “Rich White Men” and “Fuks”

    Maybe get some more pens for next week.

  25. egg_

    Oh FFS now we get to climate change from the sloan ranger.

    Ragged old First World pet cause, dahling…

  26. Turtle of WA

    I won’t be watching tonight. Sounds worse than eating a salad made by Bob Ellis.

    That’s the smartest thing I’ve heard for an hour.

  27. Captain Queeg

    In the pantheon of Q&A, that really was drivel. Victims, whingers, nannies, blamers, alarmists, and then there was Mona

  28. Gab

    I think you have to be Jewish to settle in Israel.

    Yeah, you have a number of problems PT

    1. You don’t actually “think”
    2. You are pig ignorant
    3. You’re terrible at baiting.

  29. Arnost

    perhaps you could visit the south western suburbs of Sydney

    I took the kids for a cycle ride down Cooks river yesterday. A great bike path – but the river, draining those very same south western sydney suburbs, was a cesspit. So sad to see the river full of refuse, and not only bottles, plastic and general waste – but industrial garbage just dumped. Disgraceful to the nth degree.

  30. Anne

    Bob will toss your salad real good!!

    Toss your cookies more like it!

  31. Shelley

    I have just been thinking about people I have met throughout my life and people I have worked with – people from all over the world. I accept people as the individuals they are – if they are below par, in terms of being liars, dishonest, nasty etc, then they are out. Nothing, nothing about their race. And I think this applies to many of us. I am so sick of being called a racist because I am a white, 3rd generation Australian.

  32. james

    First story on lateline is an irrelevant story about whales.

    I just want to eat whale meat once so I can tell Lefties and make them cry.

  33. Nanuestalker

    won’t be watching tonight.

    Know your enemy .. that was the worst performance in years. The “good (right-wing) questioner” was a plant. The pretend argument was sickening.

  34. Cold-Hands

    Can’t blame dot for rushing off. That was abysmal.

  35. John Mc

    You forgot that all ‘rich white men’ ™ identify as libertarian. It’s kind of like identifying as fascist jew-killing black women hater, so only bad people use that label or its variants.

  36. Tintarella di Luna

    a night of firsts: Krusty the Clown finds out about his illegitimate sister Mona the Motor-mouth, the po-faced Sloane Stranger says we here in Australia are ridiculous for no reason whatsoever other than someone in the Green room told her, the American-jew was hunted by the Nazis and thinks Australia isn’t taking in enough illegal-immigrants, Somali Sweetie pie is here for the peppermint tea and a chance to show us her lovely hands and pretty face, thank you for coming and Tim Wilson held his own even though Snow-cone tried to put words into his mouth, Tim just spat ‘em right back out.

    And we pay for this? Thank you Joe Hockey, you know you want to.

  37. Carpe Jugulum

    and then there was Mona

    She set a new benchmark in the crack addled incoherent grievance monger stakes.

  38. Brian of Moorabbin

    I just want to eat whale meat once so I can tell Lefties and make them cry.

    Don’t bother.

    Tastes like chicken.

  39. Paul C

    OK…after that show it is time for Turnbull to stand up and sort “our ABC” out once and for all. I am sick of the agressive leftist views that seems to flow from people from overseas and those people talk about “us”.
    Why not go bak to your home countries and try that approach there.?
    And to think we are paying for this garbage!

  40. Gab

    Your welcome, PT. Anytime.

  41. Arnost

    I think you have to be Jewish to settle in Israel.

    Not really – but anyone who has a smidge of Jewish blood (regardless of ethnic background) is automatically welcomed.

  42. Carpe Jugulum

    I

    just want to eat whale meat once so I can tell Lefties and make them cry.

    It’s not too bad, just think of it as ocean going beef.

    Yes i have eaten whale.

  43. Tintarella di Luna

    I just want to eat whale meat once so I can tell Lefties and make them cry.

    That’s what Emma Alberici, the ALPBC and the Greens do to people like you james, people who like to live their lives quietly, obey the law and go about their business

  44. JC

    Where the fuck did they dredge up that Egyptian harridan? Admittedly she’d be a shoe in for Liar Party or human garbage pre-selection in a flash.

  45. Hendrix

    Our friendly ABC’s message to Australians for the night – you’re all a bunch of racist, toxic, human-rights abusers. You lock children up for fun and are practically executing asylum-seekers to stop the boats. Or something. (And you’re basically satan if you’re a rich, white male).

  46. Peter from SA

    Tintarella di Luna: exactly …. why do we pay for this shite?

  47. james

    Yup we need to find a new Tim. This one is broken.

    Also after all the cheering about a largely unenforceable court ruling from a largely irrelevant court, the legal academic being interviewed by Emma lets slip that all Japan needs to do is skip through a few hoops to continue whaling.

    They should stop teasing the poor Greenies.

  48. Tintarella di Luna

    Where the fuck did they dredge up that Egyptian harridan?

    I think they flew her in ‘specially for this evening. Our taxes at work

  49. Nanuestalker

    I have suddenly developed a taste for whale …. !

  50. Gab

    I have just been thinking about people I have met throughout my life and people I have worked with – people from all over the world. I accept people as the individuals they are – if they are below par, in terms of being liars, dishonest, nasty etc, then they are out. Nothing, nothing about their race. And I think this applies to many of us. I am so sick of being called a racist because I am a white, 3rd generation Australian.

    Agree with you, Shelley and the same for me in terms of working with people from around the globe, and in Australia there’s be very few people who haven’t .

  51. Tintarella di Luna

    exactly …. why do we pay for this shite?

    I confess I don’t do it willingly

  52. Carpe Jugulum

    I think they flew her in ‘specially for this evening

    That or someone left the asylum door unlocked.

  53. Beauchamp

    Tim Wilson has changed sides. Looks as if he will sprout the ideas of anyone who pays him!!!???

  54. Anne

    Does one eat whale meat raw?

  55. egg_

    the American-jew was hunted by the Nazis and thinks Australia isn’t taking in enough illegal-immigrants

    Is Crack popular with the Left?
    Will he billet a few Roumanian ‘body builders’?

  56. Carpe Jugulum

    Thats enough for one evening, konbanwa troops.

  57. Tintarella di Luna

    That or someone left the asylum door unlocked.

    Carpe — I’ll go with your theory, I just made mine up

  58. CatAttack

    Check out how many Asylum Seekers Japan takes. I wonder why?

  59. kruddler

    “I love the way these people come from failed or failing third world societies and thrive, only to turn around and continually harangue us about what we’re doing wrong.”

    Nilk – couldn’t have said it better myself.

  60. Carpe Jugulum

    Does one eat whale meat raw

    No, stew it in miso, chicken or pork broth with crisp vegetables.

    Enjoy.

  61. John Mc

    Are we wimping out on whale farming? Piss weak. Unless they’re becoming extinct the Japanese have every right to whatever tasty sea-based treats they like.

  62. Gab

    PT

    If I have mistaken you for one of those anti-Semitic trolls we get here then I apologise to you.

  63. james

    To think they could have had a real libertarian in the shape of brendan Oneil instead of the weak as water performance by Tim Wilson.

    They set him up to mouth leftist platitudes and he seemed only too happy to mouth them.

    Also apparently the aussie journalist in jail for working at Qatars oil fueled attempt to remake the world has been refused bail.

    Oh and the.next story is about evil LNP cuts.

  64. Anne

    Thanks Carpe. I’ll pop down to Safeway in the morning.
    Sleep tight everybody.

  65. egg_

    Lateline, Raj the prOn novellist from the IPCC – the sky is still falling.

  66. Anne

    ?..tasty sea-based treats…

    That hilarious John. I’ve never seen those words in that sequence before.

  67. Nanuestalker

    This wake-up call needs this. Lets face it we got pwned! Not happy but this should be the last time!

  68. brc

    I just want to eat whale meat once so I can tell Lefties and make them cry.

    Don’t bother.

    Tastes like chicken.

    Nonsense, it’s delicious.

    Does one eat whale meat raw

    I ate smoked minke whale, with a side of prawns. Yum.

  69. incoherent rambler

    Would my Jewish, Black, Aboriginal, Middle Eastern. Somali, Muslim and Gay heritage (self-identified of course), get me a spot on Q&A?

    I could do sooo much better.

  70. Driftforge

    The only issue with the Japanese whaling was the deceit. Call it what it is and there isn’t an issue.

  71. nilk, Iron Bogan

    Thanks, Kruddler. I was being diplomatic, too. :D

  72. nilk, Iron Bogan

    Time for bed. Work in the morning.

    Nighty night, Cats. Sleep well. :)

  73. james

    My understanding is that most species of whales have been increasing healthily for some time now.

    Dunno if that justifies a harvest, but they sure ain’t at the door to extinction as they were when whale oil finally became uneconomic.

    Do perfume companies still use whale by products as a fixing agent?

  74. Motelier

    Sorry Troops,
    I thought I would watch QandA tonight alone. What a mistake that was.

    The whole panel ranged from hardcore leftism, to softcore (I will even class Tim Wilson here).

    What a waste of time.

  75. Peter from SA

    I think I’ll go back to school and become an international environmental lawyer. Might make some money and meet some hot chix. anyone? anyone? Bueller?

  76. CatAttack

    What does what whale meat taste like.? Horse I believe.

  77. Peter from SA

    Tip: to get more cred on the ABC you need a beard

  78. CatAttack

    I’ve just realised Bob Bloody Brown is going to be on TV in full smug sanctimonious mode. I’m not certain if I will be able to take that.

  79. hzhousewife

    lol Peter ! Local young “hottie ” lawyer learned French, hooked up with
    charming local glam hardresser of my acquaintance and after a couple of trips
    to Vietnam they decided to travel wider – he signed up for some classes in
    International Law in Paris, she shopped, then he got a plum job in Brussels,
    now they swank back to the boonies every couple of years………. good luck to them,
    (I’m just wishing was 30yrs younger) Whatever – Go For It !

  80. Peter from SA

    Bob Brown was on that 11am ABC discusion hour by some f*** knuckle from Queensland. Apparently growing up was pretty tough. But he made it. Aussie hero. Maybe Bandana man will write a book about him?

  81. Peter from SA

    ha! hzhousewife. need a date?

  82. Cold-Hands

    Does one eat whale meat raw?

    You can eat the skin and blubber raw.
    No, I haven’t tried it.

  83. Habib

    Whale’s too fatty for sashimi. It’s basically like eating camp pie, made out of cows that’ve been raised on trasi and shit.

  84. Yobbo

    I have eaten raw whale meat at a specialist whale restaurant in Tokyo. It was pretty good.

  85. JC

    Is this a young people’s thing- to eat new stuff. My kid will eat/try anything. I was brought up on lamb, chicken, pork and beef. It will stay that way.

  86. Infidel Tiger

    I’ve always wanted to run a scythe down the side of a whale. Looks amazing when they slit them open.

    That and smoking on a commercial airline are my lifelong dreams that have been completely dashed by the left and their hatred of a good time.

  87. WhaleHunt Fun

    Whales are not a good smell when you open them.

  88. JC

    That and smoking on a commercial airline are my lifelong dreams that have been completely dashed by the left and their hatred of a good time.

    The only problem with smoking on a plane is all the other fuckers smoking and the air around you is coated with wafting smoke.

  89. WhaleHunt Fun

    Best stick to smoking. Menthol is nice.

  90. WhaleHunt Fun

    all the other fuckers smoking

    Begs the question what the mile-highers do afterwards nowadays when smoking is banned.

  91. Cold-Hands

    Next week is in Shanghai? Snowcone must want to spend the rest of this year’s budget allocation.

  92. Dan

    Why would an Australian show go to China to debate topics the Chinese don’t give a fuck about?

  93. Oh come on

    WA edition: holy shit that dipshit Egyptian woman….there were fanatical leftist women like her in communist Afghanistan in the 1970s. They all, without exception, ended up in large bags after the Taliban took over – and the forms these bagged women took were either vertical, animate and above ground or horizontal, inanimate and subterranean. Mona will share the same fate if she stays in Egypt long enough.

  94. Oh come on

    Of course she won’t, though. When the hardliners take over, she’ll be wielding her US passport as she elbows Egyptians who actually are American allies and share American values out of the way as they’re trying to board the helicopters evacuating the soon to be overrun US embassy.

    Give up your US passport now, Mona. Show how much you love your gentle, peaceful country and how shit Western countries are. Go on. Put your money where your mouth is.

    Fucking hypocrite.

  95. Yobbo

    That and smoking on a commercial airline are my lifelong dreams that have been completely dashed by the left and their hatred of a good time.

    I managed to do that on Air France back in 1998 who were one of the last commercial airlines to ban smoking, 4-5 years after most of the rest of them.

  96. Oh come on

    This episode of Q&A is a leftist with a 70s Saidist bent’s wet dream. It really is.

    Plus, it’s crystal clear the ABC is trying to destroy Tim Wilson. He’s been set up with this crackpot panel. He’s comfortably holding his own, but that’s not the point.

  97. Oh come on

    The bald glasses guy IS RIGHT, FUCK YOU smarmy Yank whoever the fuck you are. The illegal asylum seekers disproportionately rely on the welfare system. These are FACTS. Very easy to verify. Don’t act all disgusted that someone might suggest this. Why do truth and facts offend you?

    Who’s the (pretty but utterly airheaded) chick to the right of Tim Wilson? Man, she’s an intellectual knuckle-dragger.

  98. Cold-Hands

    Mona will share the same fate if she stays in Egypt long enough.

    Stays? She’s pontificating on the Egyptian situation from her home in New York.

  99. Oh come on

    FISK DOCTRINE NOW.

    You don’t rationalise with someone who’s been bitten by a rabid dog – you treat them. Four out of five of the panelists have been bitten by intellectually rabid dogs.

  100. Oh come on

    I believe she claimed she no longer lived in the US and had moved to Egypt. If this is not so, then she must be branded a liar.

  101. nerblnob

    You often see hval on the menu in Norway. Clean Green Norway.
    I might try whale meat again some sunny day. Don’t know where, don’t know when.

  102. Oh come on

    Yeah, Iceland and Norway like their whale, too. And why the hell not? I like steak, and I like tuna, and I like crab, and I like chicken. I haven’t tried whale – I’d like to and I can’t see why it wouldn’t be palatable.

    The Japanese aren’t as smart as we think they are. They thought the the multilateral body they joined would be fair and reasonable.

    The Nords simply gave the IWC the two-fingered salute, locked and loaded their harpoons and haven’t let them cool down since. And no one gives a shit about that.

    Hey, lefties. The most egregious and indiscriminate whaling nation by countless multitudes was the Soviet Union.

  103. Yobbo

    Nobody cares about the Norweigans ’cause they aren’t killing dinki di bonzer Aussie cobber whales.

  104. Fisky

    The anti-whaling lobby is a blatantly racist one that should be prosecuted under 18C. They have no explanation for why it is wrong to kill whales but fine to kill cows, sheep, pigs and chicken. None at all. The only thing is, Japanese people like to eat whales, and white hipsters like to eat cows, sheep, pigs and chicken. So white hipsters want to ban the former but not the latter.

    There is nothing more to it than that.

  105. Abu Chowdah

    I managed to do that on Air France back in 1998 who were one of the last commercial airlines to ban smoking, 4-5 years after most of the rest of them.

    Awesome.

  106. Yobbo

    The only thing is, Japanese people like to eat whales, and white hipsters like to eat cows, sheep, pigs and chicken. So white hipsters want to ban the former but not the latter.

    There is nothing more to it than that.

    But whales are rooolly smart! (yet still not as smart as pigs).

  107. nerblnob

    These guys seem to care about Norwegian whaling. Note the use of fantasy-military language and likening of anti-whaling thugs to resistance fighters. Why do they pretend it’s about conservation? Whales aren’t under threat of extinction.

  108. Oh come on

    The Japanese should simply withdraw from the IWC and send the Nissin Maru carrier fleet into the Arctic to harvest the overabundant minke whale. Perhaps they can collaborate with the Norwegians. I believe the folk on Greenland (ie. the Danes) are rather partial to whale, too.

    Drop this scientific charade, because it’s a load of bullshit. Free the people and let them eat whale.

    Scenario #1: Sea Shepherd relocates hemispheres and butts up against some of that latent Viking aggression.
    Scenario #2 Sea Shepherd declares victory and fades into oblivion while minke whale stocks continue to be managed in a sustainable fashion, as has been the case for at least the last two decades.

    Bob Brown will need to start shopping his CV around in the latter scenario, however.

  109. Yobbo

    Drop this scientific charade, because it’s a load of bullshit. Free the people and let them eat whale.

    People in Japan aren’t really that fond of whale any more anyway. This is more about Eastern vs Western attitudes to fishing ground rights than anything else.

  110. egg_

    Mona will share the same fate if she stays in Egypt long enough.

    Stays? She’s pontificating on the Egyptian situation from her home in New York.

    It’s probably no coincidence that moaning Mona should choose red as the colour of her hair – that of some of the fairest skinned people on Earth – projection much, Mona?

  111. egg_

    and then there was Mona

    She set a new benchmark in the crack addled incoherent grievance monger stakes.

    Standard Histrionic type with daddy/whatever issues that Snowcone Springer drags out to bleat on their crazy soapbox.

  112. egg_

    Nobody cares about the Norweigans ’cause they aren’t killing dinki di bonzer Aussie cobber whales.

    Blatant racism from behind the Left’s PC mask.

  113. john constantine

    so zero population growth,clean and polite japan is a legitimate target for hatred. overbreeding cultures that rape and pillage their enviroments and kill anybody that objects can ‘do nothing wrong’.

    where are all the lefties calling for our accepting of japanese culture? which leftie calls for engaging the japanese in conversation,and enriching australia by including japanese cultural awareness?.how many schoolkids are learning from texts that praise japan for its culture?.

    [personally i object to the practice of catching heaps of sharks,just cutting the fins off,and throwing the rest of the mutilated shark back in the water to die and be wasted.that is an aspect of culture that should be stopped before whaling. but the lefties can only be bothered with symbolic soft targets that won't fight back]

  114. Denise

    Why is old, rich, white male (sort of) Tony Jones hosting a program that derides old,rich, white males? Is he channelling Rodney Dangerfield?

    Maybe Emily’s List should get onto it.

  115. Yobbo

    personally i object to the practice of catching heaps of sharks,just cutting the fins off,and throwing the rest of the mutilated shark back in the water to die and be wasted

    It’s not wasted. Other fish eat it.

  116. Yobbo

    More sharks are killed each year by bycatch anyway. The real problem with shark finning is that for some reason a lot of Chinese seem to actively seek out endangered species for consumption because of their rarity. And this doesn’t just apply to sharks either.

  117. james

    More sharks are killed each year by bycatch anyway. The real problem with shark finning is that for some reason a lot of Chinese seem to actively seek out endangered species for consumption because of their rarity. And this doesn’t just apply to sharks either.

    Very true.

    The Chinese have an interesting view on animal welfare.

    They do like Pandas though.

  118. Mark

    Hey Cat Attack – I think whale tastes just like platypus – just bigger bits

  119. egg_

    Why is old, rich, white male (sort of) Tony Jones hosting a program that derides old,rich, white males?

    ’cause he’s a Leftwing ORWM & that’s OK, got it?
    Just like dear ol’ Al Gore, $aving the Planet(TM), all heart.

  120. egg_

    Will Q&B-listers have a cage match of ORWM vs LGBT?
    (There could be some overlap, Aunty – Dolly Shortun?)

  121. Senile Old Guy

    Scenario #2 Sea Shepherd declares victory and fades into oblivion while minke whale stocks continue to be managed in a sustainable fashion, as has been the case for at least the last two decades.

    Scenario #3 Sea Shepherd declares victory and heads off to WA to interfere with the shark cull.

    You think I’m making that up for April 1. Nope. Announced by Bob Brown this morning.

  122. Bear Necessities

    For last night the ratings for Q&A barely got over 500,000 viewers nationally. It just made the top 20 programs. Normally it rates in the range 10-15 in the top 20. Maybe even the centrists are getting sick of propoganda disguised as even handedness.

  123. Oh come on

    Last night’s Qanda was the most left-heavy in recent memory. I think they thought that chick from The Observer might have not been the common-or-garden leftist she turned out to be. Tim Wilson was too soft. Last night required a Kroger or – better still – that Canadian guy they had on late last year. He would have belted the tar out of that horrible woman who thought saying ‘fuck’ so edgy that she said it several times and will end up swinging from a lamppost once the fundies take over in her shithole country.

  124. Oh come on

    Or possibly thrown from a high place. She looks and sounds the type.

  125. Oh come on

    She should be kissing the ground people like al-Sisi walk on. He’s the man between her and a burqa.

    Yes he’s a dictatorial shit. But the Egyptians aren’t going to elect a Jefferson any millennium soon. They need a strong, stern daddy who doesn’t spare the rod.

  126. Sir Fred Lenin

    To get cred on alpbc you need a beard! How true the alp clowns and groin tossers love them ,.the emlieslisters have beards too,none of your hair removal for those lesbian guys! Vive la Difference?

  127. Cold-Hands

    I think they thought that chick from The Observer might have not been the common-or-garden leftist she turned out to be.

    A glance at her writings would have revealed she’s a common or garden ecoloon, with little idea of other aspects of “Human Rights”.

  128. CatAttack

    Heres a Hypothetical. Given that Japan seemingly has accepted the courts decision. What would the response have been from the Greens if it had gone the other way? I bet I could guess.

  129. PT

    Thx Gab,
    But as I get older I realise that sometimes

    From the Q&A transcript:

    MONA ELTAHAWY: I now live in Egypt but I was in the US for 13 years, Muslims are fair game.

    Strange. Her website indicates she’s still based in NYC and her twitter feeds suggests she’s returning there.

  132. JC

    Mona epitomizes why the middle east is such a shithole. She’s a fucking lunatic and par for the course over there. What an aggressive nasty piece of work.

  133. Infidel Tiger

    If Moaner is typical of Muzzie broads then it’s hard to fault the Taliban’s stance on sheilas being kept on a tight leash.

  134. JC

    And fully covered to I might add. Did you hear her? It was like a she-devil that recently escaped hell. No fucking wonder the Mid east is a cesspit.

  135. Oh come on

    The horrible harridan whose sole shock value is to say ‘fuck’ a lot was a raving lunatic who honestly needed to be sedated

    The Jewish Yank spent most of his time opining on an issue of which he learnt what he knows from a single documentary, and the rest on shit he clearly doesn’t understand

    The pretty and stupid one said little and none of it was of any interest to anyone, and the show’s director consequently overlooked her. A competent decision.

    The Observer bint wasn’t given much time either, but since she toed the standard GreenLeftWeekly line and also spent much of her air time talking about shit she doesn’t understand. Again, a competent decision by the director.

    Tim Wilson was civilised and not bad on freedom of speech but frankly didn’t go in hard enough. That’s not his style, though. He also supported the rather irrational IPA line on illegal arrivals, and this seems to have disappointed many here but it didn’t surprise me.

    Tim Wilson was the wrong person to defend free speech in that kind of forum. He wields a scalpel expertly. Someone adept with a machete would have been more appropriate.

    What is it about this ABC sewage that makes it worth wasting an hour of your life on it?

    I just don’t get it.

  137. Oh come on

    Know thy enemy, Mark.

  138. Oh come on

    A secondary benefit is that sometimes the token righty they feel compelled to invite on brings a rhetorical flamethrower and totally dominates the cowed lefties and the gasping audience.

    That, my friend, is fantastic television.

    Also, last night’s Q&A is really the sole evidence required to demonstrate the necessity of the Fisk Doctrine.

  139. Oh come on

    Last night’s Q&A was extraordinary. If you haven’t seen it, take the time to watch it on iView. This is what we’re up against, folks. There’s no rationalising with these people – this episode demonstrates this beyond doubt.

    FISK DOCTRINE NOW

    If you haven’t seen it, take the time to watch it on iView.

    Are you insane? Reading about it after the event is bad enough. Watch it! My eyeballs would leap out of their sockets and strangle me with my own optic nerves first.

  141. Oh come on

    You should watch it for the same reasons that Allied war strategists would have read Mein Kampf, SOG. It helps to understand the psychology (and sometimes pathology) of the people you will have to engage sooner or later.

  142. Senile Old Guy

    But in WW2, they didn’t have the Cat to rely on. Its tactical advice is second to none and its sources impeccable. Wiser heads know when to hang back.

  143. Oh come on

    Hm. I’m not saying watch it every week. I watch it because I enjoy the freak show. But this particular one….wiser heads may know when to hang back. They also know when not to.

  144. Cold-Hands

    You should watch it for the same reasons that Allied war strategists would have read Mein Kampf, SOG. It helps to understand the psychology (and sometimes pathology) of the people you will have to engage sooner or later.

    A quick skim of the transcript is penance enough. Or Bolta picks the eyes out of it without wasting an hour in realtime.
