  1. Motelier

    Well that was a fluke.

  2. mmmm

    Interupptions – I’ll start the bidding at 46

  3. Cold-Hands

    Two conservatives on the panel? Better go high… 61 please.

  4. Cold-Hands

    They should ask Ed Husic how many of his constituents have gone to Syria for “humanitarian” relief /sarc.

  5. Interruption Lotto

    Carpe 46
    Cold Hands 61

  6. Talleyrand

    No comedian/actor/artist on the panel, so I think interruptions will peak at 55.

  7. calli

    I’ll go 70 with a bit of mouth froth (I know that doesn’t count but I can already sense the lurrrve in the room).

  8. Cold-Hands

    Panellists: Josh Frydenberg, Parliamentary Secretary to the Prime Minister;
    Ed Husic, Labor MP;
    Dee Madigan, Author and advertising director;
    Virisila Buadromo, Fijian women’s advocate;
    and James Allan, Professor of Law, University of Queensland.

    Ed Husic fills the mandatory token Muslim position for tonight.
    Virisila Buadromo fills the funny headress quota.
    Surprisingly, the Lefty “comedian”/actor/entertainer position has been left unfilled. An oversight they’re bound to remedy next week.

  44. Infidel Tiger

    What a load of wank. You’re both wankers.

  45. Peter from SA

    Frydenberg needs to invest in that Shane Warne gro-hair thingo

  46. Shelley

    Do you think it is because Tony introduced Ed Husic as the ‘first muslim’ in Parliament? To show that they aren’t all beheaders and killers – softening us up?

    I think the Fijian lady just vomited in her mouth.

  49. Anne

    102 please Carpe.

    Does it count if I don’t watch?

  50. Shelley

    I say that because it was a very strange question given the shit that is going on left, right and centre

  51. Motelier

    If pollies are too close then that backs up what has been said before.

    Pick the difference between Labor and LNP

  52. incoherent rambler

    To show that they aren’t all beheaders and killers – yet.

  53. Infidel Tiger

    Switching to The Voice. Less bullshit.

  54. Shelley

    Is this the new ‘friendly’ ABC.

  55. Andrew

    Dee Madigan is nuts…she likes Malcolm Fraser

  56. Peter from SA

    Unfortunately, due to the desk, you can’t see if dee Madigan is wearing pants or not as Gerard henderson has noted when she appears on the PVO show on SKY.

  57. Andrew

    James Allan already attacking carbon taxes already!!!

  58. Motelier

    This is now going to written up as witty debate.

    Especially after last weeks episode

  59. calli

    Carbon tax dumb…Snowcone interrupts. Well, I never!

  60. Peter from SA

    Good one Tony. Cut anti-ETS comment and go to “Fijian politics”.

  61. Dou itashimashite. Tanoshide kudasai.

    Kandoushita

  62. Turtle of WA

    Snowcone: that’s enough man-bear-pig denialism from you….

  63. Spider

    Go James. Cut through the bull shit.

  64. PeterTB

    Is this the new ‘friendly’ ABC.

    Media Watch managed to mention that the IPA is partly funded by the tobacco industry – so I don’t think much has changed.

  65. Dee Madigan is nuts…she likes Malcolm Fraser

    Less is more.

  66. Arnost

    Dee Has hair extensions or its been badly straigtened … Why?

  67. custard

    I dont have a guess for the interruption figure as I’m too late but I love the way your all thinking

  68. Shelley

    ZZZZZZZzzzzz….what’s the bloody question?

  69. Motelier

    This question will be interesting to see.

    Intermarriage question

  70. Rich

    First, media watch picked up on the ABC silence on the AWU now Jim Allan is invited back

    Something’s wrong….

  71. incoherent rambler

    I will take advice. Should I watch?

  72. Aristogeiton

    These are some fuck-stupid questions.

  73. Peter from SA

    The questioner appeared to have an Asian wife or at least an Asian chick sitting next to him.

  74. calli

    Oh dear…intermarriage. No pressure…bullshit with bells on.

  75. Cold-Hands

    What’s the betting Snowcone segues to da gay marriage question?

  76. incoherent rambler

    Something’s wrong….

    Someone slipped the program manager $15K

  77. Shelley

    So far the questions are nothing to do with any current political discourse or world events.

  78. Uh oh

    Was that the forced marriage question without mentioning the forced bit?

    His poor, broken-hearted mother.

  80. Tintarella di Luna

    Ed wants to do the “getting it on” bit of the getting along question — and I suspect he is, very much so

  81. calli

    The ultimate horror is…boredom.

  82. Peter from SA

    His poor, broken-hearted mother.

    naughty!

  83. Ms Dolittle

    Yep & she gets the bacon, neat huh

  84. Who gives a shit about different nationalities getting married, if you love the person and want to spend the rest of your life with them who gives a shit where you both come from.

  85. Motelier

    I just loved that twitter post

    I will be happy when a jewish man can marry his muslin boyfriend.

    LOL

  86. Mr Rusty

    I’m going to shag as many foreigners as I possibly can to do my bit for multi-culti.

  87. nilk

    So, the Fijian lady is a christian married to a muslim.

    This is going to be an islamic love-in, I guess. Can’t have anyone talking about the head-choppers lining the roads with… heads.

    I missed the first Q, so if I’m going off half-cocked feel free to say so.

  88. calli

    Allan cuts through the butter with a nice toasty knife.

  89. Shelley

    James wants to lift the level of debate, but seems to be on his own amongst the happy clappy, feel good vibe of tonights show

  90. incoherent rambler

    I will be happy when a jewish man can marry his muslin boyfriend.

    Nah. No one to bring home the bacon.

  91. Peter from SA

    think you got it nilk

  92. Shelley

    Nope Nilk, you have it down pat.

  93. Should I watch?

    If banging your head on the table until you’re unconscious doesn’t work, then, yes.

  94. Rich

    “So far the questions are nothing to do with any current political discourse or world events.”

    And last week there were 4 leftie non-politicians discussing politics and world events…

  95. The Miriam Ibrahim question, why can’t you just say muzzies are fvking barbarians asshats.

  96. Shelley

    Are they going to stop skirting around and cut to the chase of dicussing what horrors are happening at this moment, as they speak?

  97. calli

    Husic, will you stick your neck out and condemn those buggers wanting to torture and execute Ibrahim? Nah…didn’t think so.

  98. Mr Rusty

    Can someone translate that question please?

  99. WTF is that shit on the top of her head, it looks like a growth?

  100. Cold-Hands

    Drowning in mush tonight.

  101. nilk

    Oops. Who let that lady in there, asking about the woman in Sudan, Meriam Ibrahim, who gave birth in jail while still shackled (reportedly). All because her father was muslim and she married a christian.

    A US citizen no less, who the Great Pres Barry has done nothing for, of course.

    Ed soothes all with platitudes, and then we’re onto stereotyping of Pacific Islander students.

    Because nobody else in the history of anything has been stereotyped.

  102. Peter from SA

    Shelley it seems this is following on last week and being completely crap …

  103. Aristogeiton

    All of these questions have been fucking stupid so far. And the bloviation; fuck me dead. The mountains laboured…

  104. Motelier

    Carpe,

    I hoped it was her hair. but now that you have mentioned it.

    Hmmmmm

  105. Arnost

    Is this heading down the apologist for muzzies route? Or it’s the sunrise show or something with all these people agreeing with each other.

  106. Gab

    Are they going to stop skirting around and cut to the chase of dicussing what horrors are happening at this moment, as they speak?

    How would they know what’s going on in the Middle East when all they watch is their ABC? It’s not the ABC reports on current events #turc.

  107. Beertruk

    Can someone translate that question please?

    What was the bloody question…sigh…

  108. incoherent rambler

    In breaking news, the Earth gained in mass 164,000 kg yesterday, what do you think Ed? Was it Global Warming?

  109. custard

    They are (The twitter feeders) having a red hot go at Chris Lilley

  110. JC

    Oh yea I can learn a real lot from a Pacific Islander like…. Operating the particle accelerator in Tonga.

  111. Cold-Hands

    WTF is that shit on the top of her head

    As mentioned before, Virisila Buadromo fills the funny head-dress quota.

  112. Who is the bimbette with the poindexter glasses?

  113. JC

    Oh geezers not wyminzes discussion again.

  114. Peter from SA

    5th Columnist Alert! Frydenberg has a red tie on.

  115. Turtle of WA

    Education for Girls is more important. FMD.

  116. Shelley

    Education for girls…like the education the 200 Nigerian Christian girls were trying to get before being rounded up and put into sacks, never to be seen by their parents again? Like those girls Dee?

  117. Peter from SA

    Who is the bimbette with the poindexter glasses?

    a character off The Simpsons?

  118. Anne

    Game of Thrones is on IT.

    A beloved character dies tonight.

  119. MsDolittle

    Oh girls, stop fighting for your rights, just assume them!

  120. nilk

    Aaaand we have the wussy feminist sooking about wymmins’ not being supported and encouraged.

    “I wish that more little girls who were told they were bossy were told they have leadership skills.”

    Oh, please.

    As for boys leaving school, when you’re stuck in a feminised gulag and your behaviour is deemed too aggressive, too intimidating, yada yada, who wouldn’t leave as soon as you could?

  121. calli

    Husic would have plenty to say about that, Shelly…or maybe not.

  122. Gab

    I really hate it when people don’t add in a spoiler alert, don’t you, IT?

  123. MsDolittle

    Awwh I just posted as Jonah but waiting for moderator

  124. Infidel Tiger

    Game of Thrones is on IT.

    A beloved character dies tonight.

    That’s the story line every week!

  125. Tiny Dancer

    So funny that only Tony laughed

  126. Gab

    (The twitter feeders) having a red hot go at Chris Lilley

    What? What have they got against the great fast bowler?!

  127. Rich

    So invite Allan on and spend an hour on a multi-culti love in

    It seems someone at qanda has a grain of intelligence

  128. nilk

    SnowCone throws to a twitter question about Lilley’s show Jonah the Tongan and what the Tongan’s think of it. What do any Islanders/Tongans in the audience think of it?

    Fijian lady didn’t know what it was about, but she’s Fijian and not Tongan, so she slides away from that one, and no Tongans in the audience.

  129. Shelley

    Finally, Iraq…but Bush, Blair666

  130. Motelier

    Now we are getting political
    Bush and Blair are war criminals

  131. Andrew

    Question about neo-con Tony Blair? Say wut?!

  132. Beertruk

    Ohhh…a question in Iraq…

  133. Turtle of WA

    It’s George Bernard Shaw!

    $15K is not enough?

  136. Spider

    Relative harmony Oh yes 1 million died during Iran Iraq war. Yep really harmonious.

  137. Rich

    Simple, Tony, you pay with your concessional HECS loan

    We’ll take that as a (blatantly partisan) comment

  138. calli

    Snowcone makes a gratuitous comment re uni fees then shuts down Allan’s response. Sack that twerp now.

  139. nilk

    Holy cow, Tony Blair and George Bush responsible for the Iranians invading Iraq today.

    Because Saddam Hussein held all the islamic factions in check and the muslims and christians lived in peace and harmony.

  140. Shelley

    Didn’t those chemical weapons turn up in Syria eventually?

  141. Arnost

    Oh fuck – all the Kurds Shiites and Christians sung kumbayah with Saddam’s Sunnis in Iraq. Woo hoo! Here is a bit of historical revisionism starting. All Bush/Blair’s fault.

  142. Motelier

    Iraq.

    I am going to have to look at an older map.

    My bet it is not going to be there.

  143. nilk

    “Did we make mistakes when we went in? Absolutely.”

    Yes we did, the so-called powers that be in the Western world lost their gonads and wimped out, with the verminous Obama slinking away into the night and betraying those innocents left there.

  144. Solution to Iraq – nuke em til they glow and shoot them in the dark.

  145. Pickles

    No Tongans in the QANDA audience? They’re in the basement making sure no one parks in Tones special spot.

  146. incoherent rambler

    Because Saddam Hussein held all the islamic factions in check and the muslims and christians liveddied from torture in peace and harmony.

  147. Arnost

    Was Syria seriously serious Hus?

  148. nilk

    And nobody has mentioned “radical islamism” at all, let alone regular islam with the Verse of the Sword, and the wonderful “slay the infidels where you find them.”

    “Smite them at the neck”. Yeah, we see how that’s working.

    Appeasing suckups.

  149. custard

    I think the interruptions are quite low tonight. Aristo is looking good

    If you were lucky Saddam put you in the industrial paper shredder head first.

  152. Gab

    all the Kurds Shiites and Christians sung kumbayah with Saddam’s Sunnis in Iraq.

    Amazing. This is what leftards really believe! Say goodbye to western civilization as we know it.

  153. Shelley

    Was that a werewolf in the audience?

  154. nilk

    The Americans went into a country with very few jihadists, and it was functioning, Saddam Hussein aside. They mucked it up.

    So I guess Uday and Qusay were just a pair of rambunctious boys.

    Fijian lady suggests dialogue.

    I shit you not.

  155. Infidel Tiger

    Is this Fijian chick freestyle rapping? I didn’t understand a word she just said.

  156. MsDolittle

    Diplomacy being sending kids bodies back to parents with no eyes.

  157. nilk

    I want to punch my screen.

  158. Peter from SA

    Fijian woman says diplomacy would have solved Iraqs problems … send her to negotiate with ISIS.

  159. Arnost

    Ah yes – the Kurds were gassed by weapons of math instruction and eraddicated to death or something.

  160. Spider

    The old OIL furphy. Conspiracy alert.

  161. calli

    She suddenly realised she had a military dictatorship in her own country…go home and try to fix your own stuff, sista.

  162. Talleyrand

    Of couse there are non Tongans watchin QNA cuz its an homogenous white crowd as usual. Ok and a few Indians and Chinese to add colour and movement.

  163. Docket62

    Bomb bomb, bomb Bomb iran… Oh bomb iraaaaannn. Bomb iraaaaann…. (Think beach boys Barbara Anne )

  164. incoherent rambler

    send her to negotiate with ISIS.

    And Snowcone to moderate.

  165. I think the interruptions are quite low tonight. Aristo is looking good

    Currently at 52.

  166. Peter from SA

    Once again IT restores my faith in humanity. Surely the smart (and funny) people will always win …

  171. Tintarella di Luna

    Can anyone tell me what language Dee Madigan speaks? I don’t recognise it as English, it sounds like a nasally dialect of bint

  172. nilk

    I’m currently reading Crucified Again.

    I have in my library 3 shelves of books on things jihadi. I have the quran, the Reliance, the Hedaya. I’ve got a copy of Ibn Ishaq on disc somewhere. As Erdogan said, there is only islam.

    But I’m not a muslim so I’m a racist for getting upset about this crap.

  173. Peter from SA

    This would be a pretty good show but for Dee Madigan and Snowcone

    should they get a room? ugghh horrible thought !!!!!

    What did Dee just say about “words”?

    Uh oh…Israel.

  178. Mr Rusty

    That was an epic and utterly racist fail from Snowcone a few minutes back.

    Jones [to Fijian]: Do you think Jonah from Tonga is offensive?
    Fijian: I don’t know, you should ask the Tongans about that.

    Yes Jones you racist fuckwit, all black people speak for each other.

  179. Do you just make up the numbers, Carpe?

    Nope i have a keen ear and a sharp pencil.

  180. Geriatric Mayfly

    May I remind people to get with the flow and watch their white privilege.

    Josh just gave one to Snowcone under the ribs – lovely

  186. Arnost

    Josh – just tell snow come “call it rabbits” or something a and let that occupy his pinhead.

  187. Pickles

    Fiji Baby says education very important. Looks about ready to defend that radical position. She’s tough. And controversial.

  188. Rich

    Snowcone getting rather hot under the collar about the occupation of Arab lands

    Fair and balanced

  189. nilk

    Mr. Rusty, I would have thought that a Fijian being a Pacific Islander would at least have an opinion about it. But yes, SnowCone is racist.

    As for Ed, “Occupied is not a pejorative”, Tell that to the Palis on Nakhba Day.

  190. Peter from SA

    Does SnowCone have his own Margigras float? I guess he would as part of his $300k contract … imagine him shaven, lubed up and dancing around …

    Snowcone getting rather hot under the collar about the occupation of Arab lands

    I am getting rather hot under the collar about the occupation of Aussie lands.

  193. Snoopy

    Snowcone: “Does this make sense to you, you retard”.

  194. Splatacrobat

    The West has not won a war since Japan 1945.

    Falklands?

  195. Arnost

    The Homo sapiens occupied the Neanderthal lands or something

  196. calli

  198. calli

    And Snowcone interrupts! Hold me up!

  199. Beertruk

    If they are talking about occupied territories in Gaza and the West bank, when is Russia going to return the Kurile Islands to Japan.

  200. Gab

    The West has not won a war since Japan 1945.

    Falklands?

    No, no THAT was an invasion according to the lefties.

  201. incoherent rambler

    Trade sanctions against australia from muslim countries.

    The middle east would starve without Israel and Australia.

  202. duncanm

    James makes excellent points on Israel floating in the cesspit that is the middle east.. Snowcone needs to STOP HIM before he makes too much sense.

  203. Infidel Tiger

    $56 million to those turds. We’re morons.

  204. The West has not won a war since Japan 1945.

    Timor Leste? (streching a bit i know)

  205. Rich

    Falklands?

    Well, Technically the most western nation lost

    (Sorry, I’m bored)

  206. Andrew

    Some very average questions for a rather good, diverse panel.

  207. nilk

    And here comes the aboriginal thing. “The people of the Australian First Nations would consider that their country being occupied by caucasian Australians.”

    Allen points out that Israel is the only democracy in the area, tells someone to shut up so he can make his point, and just as he mentions that the UN has sanctioned Israel a gazillion times more than any other country Snow Cone jumps over to try and shut him up.

    Arab gentleman in the audience asks how Israel can be called a democracy when the Palestinians don’t live with the same rights as other Israelis.

    Nilk says” maybe if the Palis stopped trying to kill the Israelis they might be able to. Given the Hamas Charter, that is highly unlikely.”

  208. Motelier

    So

    Baldylocks wrote his question about Fiji

    The prof is using buckshot this evening.

  213. Gab

    “The people of the Australian First Nations would consider that their country being occupied by caucasian Australians.”

    Oh so NOW the lefty dumps on the Original Boat People.
    Racists.

  214. duncanm

    aha…., ‘intervene in Fiji’

    Allen – hang on, you said leave the dictators in the Middle Easy alone. For thee but not for me?

    Snowcone – shuddup.

  215. Peter from SA

    There is a “Pacific Way” … apparently neither left nor right but enables all kinds of crazy stuff to happen.

  216. Talleyrand

    Count the number of Nobel prizes of Arab nations and that of Israel. Now count their respective populations.
    Yes I know which one I want to live under in the Middle East.

  217. Aristogeiton

    Wow. I can’t believe those military officers were not imprisoned for ’emotional abuse’.

  218. nilk

    Heheh. Allen points out the inconsistencies in the Fijian lady’s views on the dictatorship in Fiji as opposed to dictatorships in the ME. She’s all about dialogue in the ME and sanctions in the Pacific.

    She says, “huh? I don’t understand you.”

    Yes, dear, we know.

  219. Spider

    Josh us pretty good. Is across a lot of the issues.

  220. Splatacrobat

    FFS when Carr was in government he was advocating military intervention if Fiji didn’t hold elections

  221. MsDolittle

    Why should anybody do Fiji’s heavy lifting other than Fiji?

  222. nilk

    Hang on, Ari, she said she was physically as well as emotionally abused.

  223. duncanm

    Virisila should STFU about whites ‘invading’ Australia.

    She thinks dictators in the middle east should be left alone.

    Abbott666 is our dictator – leave him alone!

  224. Peter from SA

    Reagan v Grenada 1983

    good one! a tough fight. I think we also won vs Panama soon afterwards …

  225. Spider

    Yes. You’re right. It sounded very grave.

  227. Beertruk

    Falklands?

    Hmmm…yep…ok Splatacrobat you are right…Ill rephrase that…

    The West has not won a war since Japan 1945 and the Falklands in 1982. The point I was trying to make is that those wars were prosecuted right to the end until the enemy was totally defeated.
    Cant think of any others at the moment.
