  1. hzhousewife

    The only person in the room I’d like to hear from is the intriguing
    asian gentleman in the audience………… what gasbags the rest are

  2. goatjam

    Paul Kelly is sitting on the fence. Not that I blame him at all, he is surrounded by leftists and musso sympathisers. He’s probably concerned for his family.

    Gareth Evans warns against “inflaming the situation” as if it could be inflamed any further. he is reading from the Sackless Tony playbook.

  3. Cold-Hands

    The Yanks have the right idea. Multiethnic but monocultural.

  4. Baldrick

    Naming and shaming … that’s gonna work with the Islamic State you dickhead Biggles.

  5. john constantine

    There’s an idea, let us follow the example of the great man al gore, and sell the abc to the qatari’s.

    the abc becomes “al-jazeera broadcasting corporation”.

    Come on, at least sell them sbs.

  6. Shelley

    A tweet that asked why the Christians weren’t being protected – it was up for all of about 3 seconds.

  7. Christ! I wish they’d have me on this show… a wild card entry…. “…. and also tonight we have [insert my real name here] a small business operator from a remote area” [clapping noises... which dry up when I answer a few questions in a most realistic manner]

  8. goatjam

    Twitwatch: Why can’t we all just get along!

    Requiem4me Fairuz Ibrahim
    I can’t get over the fact that we still have issues with multiculturalism. The country is built on it #qanda

  9. Top Ender

    Bloody hell. Imagine working for Gareth Gareth.

    “Bring me my looking glass!”

    “Where is my hair stylist?”

    “What do you mean there’s no special meal on this flight?”

  10. Pedro the Ignorant

    Humanitarian bombing. On ya Biggles.

  11. Cold-Hands

    Biggles: Waffle, waffle, waffle.

  12. Peter from SA

    Oh No! Gareth used “good guys vs bad guys” kind of talk. He has no right to speak, clearly.

  13. Steve, to be fair, she didn’t say they settled here. And no, I doubt they were fundamentalists, just like the Muslim pearlers and camel drivers weren’t, but I guess much of that’s due to the fact they didn’t have any imams here to keep them in line.

  14. Shelley

    Multiethnic but monocultural.

    Yes, but how do you do this with those that follow a doctrine as extreme as the Koran and want their own Sharia law?

  15. Arnost

    Hey Biggles… What would your namesake (and Algy and Bertie) do in Iraq? Give you a hint – they wouldn’t play golf!

  16. goatjam

    Twitwatch: Moral relativism at its finest

    faz1988 Faz Ahmad Nishib
    Islam- devotion to God, applies to Judaism, Christianity and Islam (as commoners understand it). Obama funded ISIS, bang on target! #qanda

    Because Christianity and Judaism are indistinguishable from Islam

  17. Finally a question about Jabba the Peanut Head.

    It’s a bust.

  18. Farmer Gez

    I give up! There are such manifest stupidities on display tonight that my logical self has suffered a multi personality disorder episode. Alcohol is calling.

  19. Leigh Lowe

    Has anyone asked if Bill Shorten has a problem with women?

  20. Baldrick

    We’ve had tilted heads, now we’ve got nodding heads. FME

  21. Shelley

    Steve, to be fair, she didn’t say they settled here

    So she was being disingenuous then.

  22. Combine Dave

    They should have got some dudes from the Atheist-Cult, like Dawkins or Kraus, to come on as well.

    I don’t think the ABC is quite ready to film the resultant beheading… not yet any way.

    Dawkins; ‘ All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though’

    http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2013/aug/08/richard-dawkins-tweets-islam-muslim-nobel

  23. Steve, to be fair, she didn’t say they settled here.

    By the same yardstick Dutch Calvinists pre-dated Cook.
    But that wasn’t her meaning Big Nana…. Mixing-bowl Head is claiming muslims are somehow special.
    In my book muslims are very special, but not in the way mixing-bowl head is intimating.

    Twitwatch; Lisa pines for the good old days;

    Julia Gillard will be remembered fondly in the future #qanda

  25. Rich

    Genuine question – what is the beehive like headgear for?

    I’ve never seen a Muslim on the street wear such a thing, and I just looked up ’7 types of headscarf’ and there was nothing like that

  26. Arnost

    Pontificaca pontifuckaca pontifacating – or something . Tony liked it though.

  27. PeterF

    Garth is getting too much airtime.STFU.

  28. DJA

    sorry i’ll have to leave, I feel a vomit coming on and I don’t want to damage the TV.
    cheers see you next week. AGHHHHHHHH

  29. Top Ender

    A minute by minute analysis of tonight’s poor excuse for current affairs would show about 30% of the talking is being done by Gareth Gareth Gareth, or 3G as we might call him.

  30. Shelley

    So he is admitting collusion with the press gallery?? Is that what I heard?

  31. It gets up my nose that a turd like Gareth Evans has that nickname.
    I’ve got all 100 Biggles books, often re-read some of the better ones, have made a study (well, sort of) of W.E. John’s life.
    Then a piece of dung like Evans gets the nickname.

    Biggles had integrity, bumped off baddies without a qualm, was highly skilled at his trade, and gave a lifetime of stoic service to the best interests of his country.
    Pretty much the opposite of Gareth Evans.

  32. Baldrick

    FFS does Biggles ever shut up?

  33. goatjam

    Gareth: What I can say about my time in the Hawke grubbermint, when we had a problem with a focus group that was the beginning of the argument”

    Says it all about what is wrong with modern politics really

  34. Genuine question – what is the beehive like headgear for?

    It hides the cranial overgrowth, that or it hides the fact she is a dickhead.

  35. Rich

    I don’t think the ABC is quite ready to film the resultant beheading… not yet any way.

    Dawkins; ‘ All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though’

    Yeah, I thought Dawkins wasn’t that bad on Muslims, considering the obvious danger inherent, Hitchens wasn’t as afraid though

    Who is this woman – I don’t care

  36. Arnost

    Gareth may have 50% of the speaking time – but he hasn’t really said anything. [of value in any case]

    The lady in blue on the other hand is much more interesting ?

  37. goatjam

    Somebody needs to tie that blue-bags hands behind her back before she injures somebody. I want to smack her upside the head.

  38. Pedro the Ignorant

    Blue frightbat reveals she was a hack, waves hands in large circles for some obscure reason.

  39. Top Ender

    C’mon Arnost: “Hey Biggles… What would your namesake (and Algy and Bertie) do in Iraq? Give you a hint – they wouldn’t play golf!”

    Don’t slander the gallant chaps of WE Johns with this bloke’s association.

    They’d have taken him over the Lines and dropped him off. From 10, 000 feet.

  40. Yeah Goatjam, I’ve seen Gentleman Italian waiters with less hand movements.

  41. Combine Dave

    Lady with weird eyes says Indons have had “pogroms.” I don’t think so.

    They have had plenty, but against ethnic chinese indons rather than against Jews. Similar principle though.

    … it hides the fact she is a dickhead.

    Good one Carpe.

  43. Leigh Lowe

    FFS does Biggles ever shut up?

    (1) I should never have used the RAAF to spy on Tassie;
    (2) I should never have rooted Cheryl;
    (3) I should have shut-up in 1990
    The end.
    You won’t hear from me again.

  44. custard

    Kelly is right regarding persuasion …

    Twitwatch: Maire Foyle can’t see anything wrong with a tax that generates no revenue:

    solitaryseabird Maire Foyle
    Mining tax?? – Murdoch ran a disgraceful campaign against it Paul #qanda

  46. Top Ender

    Gareth Gareth only got the nickname Biggles in a very satirical way. Apparently got very pissed off when he heard.

    Jeeze that Cheryl Kernot lady must have been hard of hearing, and he was reduced to a dull drone in the background.

  47. Rich

    So what’s the score at Carpe?

    Is it still zero?

  48. Leigh Lowe

    Genuine question – what is the beehive like headgear for?

    … it hides the fact she is a dickhead.

    It’s not doing it’s job then.

  49. goatjam

    Paul Kelly goes the smackdown on the mining tax, Snowcone interrupts

  50. Dawkins; ‘ All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though’

    He means all the stuff they stole from the Hindus, Greeks & Romans & passed of as their own work.

  51. So what’s the score at Carpe?
    Is it still zero?

    If you don’t count Paul Kelly, yes.

  52. So

    what’s the score at Carpe?

    14 – hard to believe but true.

  53. Arnost

    They’d have taken him over the Lines and dropped him off. From 10, 000 feet.

    :) yup! As Steve said above:

    Biggles had integrity, bumped off baddies without a qualm, was highly skilled at his trade, and gave a lifetime of stoic service to the best interests of his country.
    Pretty much the opposite of Gareth Evans.</blockquote

    Exactly what I meant!

    Euthanasia question out of left field.

  59. Rich

    Yay – a euthanasia question

    I’m all for it after tonight’s showing

    Maybe beyond blue should start warnings at the start of q and a

  60. This is how many weeks now, without the gay marriage question?

  61. Conehead puts a muzzie bend on it, quite incoherent.

  62. PeterF

    Muzzieland lady has map of Oz brooch.

  63. Top Ender

    Just found this about Gareth Gareth and Cheryl Kernot:

    One of her only regrets is at that naivety – or stupidity, she’s not sure which – of not doing her homework in order to understand the culture of the Labor Party leadership before putting her life in its hands.

    “I feel devalued by the consequences of Laurie Oakes’s intervention [in revealing her affair with the then Labor foreign affairs minister Gareth Evans],” she says.

    Nice.

  64. Shelley

    Euthanasia question out of left field.

    Isn’t there a private members bill pending on the topic?

  65. Combine Dave

    Dawkins; ‘ All the world’s Muslims have fewer Nobel Prizes than Trinity College, Cambridge. They did great things in the Middle Ages, though’

    He means all the stuff they stole from the Hindus, Greeks & Romans & passed of as their own work.

    No disagreement from me Carpe. Was just pointing why their ABC would never invite Dawkins to their IS apologists-fest.

    Might stir up head choppers with explosive ‘personalities’.

  66. goatjam

    Twitwatch: Greg wants to demonstrate the many uses that the Internet has, such as making yourself look like a complete twat;

  67. If I start watching shows like this, you’ve all permission to shoot on sight.

  68. Stop saying it’s not a black and white issue – you either accept state sanctioned killing or you don’t.

    Stop dressing it up as a public health issue.

  69. Golf ball eyes seems to have taken too much serum before the show, she’s off on a totally unrelated topic.

  70. goatjam

    “Isn’t there a private members bill pending on the topic?”

    Yes, but they put it up without a question about gay marriage? What’s up with that?

  71. Turtle of WA

    Euthanasia question out of left field.

    Where else? They often drop a big topic last thing with five minutes to go.

  72. Arnost

    Euthanasia question out of left field.

    Maybe they are trying to segue back to ISIS/ISIL and beheadings …

  73. If I start watching shows like this, you’ve all permission to shoot on sight.

    Any particular calibre or just a random choice?

  74. Combine Dave

    This is how many weeks now, without the gay marriage question?

    Gold. Today’s Q&A with it’s medievally minded attendees is hardly the venue for a SSM discussion. I am sure it’ll be back on the menu next week however.

  75. Baldrick

    Euthanasia question … I don’t want to end up in a ursine home.

    Brownie points for mentioning the nanny state though

  77. Golf ball eyes seems to have taken too much serum before the show,

  78. Turtle of WA

    “Moving into” dementia territory?

  79. Were I on the panel, (wild card bush publican entry to the show) I’d answer with how we could arrange meetings between people who want to be offed, and muslims who want to hack some heads.
    The kids could pose with the body, provided permission was first obtained from the euthanasee…
    … everybody happy!

    (I’d likely have to dodge shoes & stuff from the impartial audience)

  80. Shelley

    Ah gay marriage!!! Thanks Gareth.

    But yes, it is odd that it has gone this long without the question coming up. Maybe the father with the ?army son hasn’t been available.

  81. Top Ender

    Bring back Von Stalhein to bump off our version of Biggles, now as we all agree not deserving of the nickname”

    Von Stalhein, Erich

    Biggles’ nemesis. He first appears in Biggles Flies East where he is working for German Intelligence:

    In appearance he was tall, slim, and good-looking in a rather foppish way, but there was a grim relentless about his manner that quickly told Biggles that he was a man to be feared. He had been wounded early in the war, and walked with a permanent limp with the aid of two sticks, and this physical defect adding something to his sinister bearing. Unlike most of his countrymen, he was dark, with cold brooding eyes that were hard to meet and held a steel-like quality that the monocle he habitually wore could not dispel.
    The limp turns out to be fake in this adventure, but tends to reappear in later stories.

  82. Arnost

    Actually Biggles just made sense… Well what do you know!

  83. People who favour euthanasia are people who dont have the guts to kill themselves so they want someone else do do it for them.

  84. Shelley

    arrange meetings between people who want to be offed, and muslims who want to hack some heads

    You may have a new business model there.

  85. PeterF

    Paul Kelly is the only adult in the room tonite.

  86. goatjam

    Snowcone: “So Gareth, why didn’t you achieve anything while you were attorney general?”

    Gareth: “umm, something about only having principles while in opposition.’

    He could get a job in the Liberal Party cabinet.

  87. No need to ask for euthanasia, just slip along to Punchbowl/Lakemba and “insult the prophet”

  88. Rich

    Ah gay marriage!!! Thanks Gareth.

    But yes, it is odd that it has gone this long without the question coming up. Maybe the father with the ?army son hasn’t been available.

    Muslims don’t like gay marriage – current leftie narrative is gaza/censoring ISIS atrocities

  89. Shelley

    Nothing to do with anybody else? Really? Selfish old cow.

  90. Top Ender

    Blond British lady is getting emotional.

    Will bring out scones any minute now.

  91. Muslims musta t0ld the useful idiots that they love the support, but they’ll have to drop that “gay marriage” talk.
    Compliance would be instant.

  92. Baldrick

    Absolute bunch of tossers tonight.

  93. Nobody can stop you killing yourself if you really want to.

  94. Shelley

    Next week may take the mantle for the worst Q and A – six women from the Dangerous Ideas Festival – including that stalwart Jane Caro.

    What

    The festival of dangerous ideas?

    Again??

    Are we in a time loop?

    Wooo hooo – frightbat Q&A next week!

  97. Combine Dave

    Golf ball eyes seems to have taken too much serum before the show,

    I prescribe some pork spare ribs salted with iodine enriched salt. That ought to fix what’s ailing her. Wash it down with a nice red (full of healthy antioxidants & resveratrol).

  98. Top Ender

    Ah, the annual Festival of Dangerous Ideas next week.

    Which usually just trots out the current issues and then gets the non-exciting allowable responses.

  99. Absolute bunch of tossers tonight.

    I’d probably take mixing-bowl head for a few drinks, in the hope she’d loosen up a bit.
    The rest of ‘em I wouldn’t even bother pulling out a 6-pack of stubbies to share around behind the studio.

  100. Well troops Interruptions came in at 17 PeterF you are now the proud new owner of a set of arseless chaps – wear them with pride (and if it’s cold add some thermals.) Keep it free and breezy champ.

  101. Turtle of WA

    That was bloody awful. No surprises. Worse next week. All lefty femmos. It just gets worse.

  102. goatjam

    “People who favour euthanasia are people who dont have the guts to kill themselves so they want someone else do do it for them.”

    The whole euthanasia question is difficult. I still don’t know if I am fer it or agin it. I understand the arguments on both sides.

    I do think the comment above is a bit simplistic though.

    You just time machined me back about 50 years Top Ender! I haven’t seen that name since 1965.

  104. Top Ender

    Tony Jones gets paid for this?

    What was that cock-up at the end about?

  105. Andrew

    Kelly answers the euthanasia question really well. To say that a it is a purely individual decision is complete bunkum.

    Crikey she’s gone downhill in the last couple of years… I shudder to think how harsh she now looks without makeup.

    Whoops!

    Cheryl and Gareth – the consuming passion

    By Mike Seccombe and Peter Fray
    July 4 2002

    Gareth Evans, the former foreign minister and deputy Labor leader, lied to Parliament about a five-year affair with Labor’s star recruit Cheryl Kernot, according to an email he sent her after they broke up.

    The email, in which Mr Evans confessed that he did not think “I can live with the consequences of that” lie, was revealed last night by the Bulletin and Nine Network correspondent Laurie Oakes.

    Oakes said the email also referred to the relationship as a “grand consuming passion”.

    In March 1998, Senator Evans denied in Parliament suggestions by a Liberal MP of a relationship between himself and Ms Kernot.

    As a result of Oakes’s revelations – and frenzied media interest including what was described as a dangerous car chase yesterday – the publisher of Ms Kernot’s newly released book, Speaking for Myself, HarperCollins, last night cancelled all further promotion of it.

  122. goatjam

    That’d be a great question to pop in between the second & third glass of red.

    By “glass” you mean “bottle” right?

  123. He means all the stuff they stole from the Hindus, Greeks & Romans & passed of as their own work.

    This isn’t true. People like Averroes, Avicenna, etc. did some very fine work.

  124. goatjam

    Oakes said the email also referred to the relationship as a “grand consuming passion”.

    Quite frankly it is hard for me to visualize Gareth Evans with a “grand consuming passion”.

    Not without vigorously bleaching my eyeballs afterwards, anyway.

  125. That’d be a great question to pop in between the second & third glass of red.
    By “glass” you mean “bottle” right?

    Glass. I’m happy to belt down several bottles (as can be attested by any pretty lady lawyer who has acted for me)… but I’d want to stir that FGM pot while I was still sober enough to be in control, but after she’d loosened up a bit.

  126. Top Ender

    Gawd, that was an awful show!

    See you blokes next week, if I can forget who will be on the panel…

  127. No disagreement from me Carpe. Was just pointing why their ABC would never invite Dawkins to their IS apologists-fest.

    I’m sure he’d get one for the Christmas or Easter edition of Q&A so he can bash Christians, Combine Dave; horses for courses, old boy.

  128. Baldrick

    Quite frankly it is hard for me to visualize Gareth Evans with a “grand consuming passion”.

    Can you imagine the foreplay between Biggles and Cheryl?
    Oh no … that’s just wrong.

  129. goatjam

    but I’d want to stir that FGM pot while I was still sober enough to be in control

    Well, you’re a braver man than I Gunga Din

  130. goatjam

    From Top Ender at 10:32 pm:

    “Just found this about Gareth Gareth and Cheryl Kernot:

    Who talks like that? What type of “adult” thinks like that?

    The stupid cow had spent 15 odd years as a senior official then as senator and leader of a significant political party and yet, at 50 years old, she claimed “naivety” about Labor culture!

    She embraced the Pardy (and Gareth Gareth for five years) then squealed like a 14 year old schoolgirl when they had what they wanted and cut her loose. She squealed again when Chubby Laurie wrote about the bonking bit – long after the Dickson electorate ought to have known.

  132. but I’d want to stir that FGM pot while I was still sober enough to be in control
    Well, you’re a braver man than I Gunga Din

    What’s to be afraid of?
    Any more than 2 glasses in me & I’d supplement the question by offering to inspect the scars.

    One contributor to Pickering’s Blog:

    The stupid cow had spent 15 odd years as a senior official then as senator and leader of a significant political party and yet, at 50 years old, she claimed “naivety” about Labor culture!

    Indeed. After all, Jules had figured this out when she was a “young and naive” law partner at the innocent age of 35.

    They’re all going to hell, silly!
    They just tell them that four will miss the cut to keep them keen.

  138. Because Christianity and Judaism are indistinguishable from Islam

    Beer versus no beer. Can there be any greater distinction between the two? Oh, and heap lopping and stuff.

  139. head lopping, dammit. Almost as bad as heap lopping, FFS.

  140. Oh come on

    Has there ever been a bigger wanker on Q&A than the pony-tailed Marxist?

  141. Oh come on

    Gareth Evans is one of those mediocre intellects who is very good at making stupid people think he’s incredibly intelligent. He reminds me of Rudd.

    Thanks all for the entertainment tonight – love this thread with a passion!

    I’ve never ever watched one single second of QandA , and proud of it – my enjoyment comes from simply reading this thread each week

    As I live with a lefty lawyer with Q and A watching inclinations, I head him off at the pass with the promise of a $10 steak at the club and a bottle of wine and then surprisingly by the time we get home in seconds he is sound asleep on the couch at QandA time…

    So thanks all for the laughs..

    Fun thread tonight guys. Must get back onto it myself sometime; when Foyle’s War isn’t on at the same time maybe. Next week’s Q and A should be a lulu. All the Frightbats. The Cat’s Kittehs should really be there, for gender balance with all our TomCats natch. But when Christopher Foyle gives that slight curl of his lip, I’m lost. Stronger hormones are calling.

    When Biggles won his seat in Parliament his work colleagues (in a Melbourne legal practice) bought him a farewell gift of two airline tickets to Canberra. At his farewell send-off he thanked them for their gift and asked the obvious question, why two tickets?

    They replied, one for you and one for your ego.

    Thanks, Cats. Magnificent selflessness. Glad I didn’t subject myself to it. I still haven’t watched the Foley murder and I’m equally concerned that watching an hour of the frightbats talking up their mental illness as some kind of ideology next week might not be good for me.

  146. Foyle’s War is miles ahead of Q&A Lizzie, tonight’s episode of q&a especially so.
    The ad breaks during Foyle’s War would be more interesting than tonight’s …[Zzzzzz]…. episode.

    I actually did fall asleep watching last nights episode. Oh dear me!

    WTF

    Has he been using Jack Nicholson’s plastic surgeon?

    I heard the gang was called fourtwotwenty (420), which would be 4220.

    The imbeciles should have paid more attention at school.

    PM announces MH17 memorial.

    Crap
    Can’t do linky on iPhone

    Google
    MH17 memorial Canberra

    It was part of the condolence motion

    I don’t know why it’s worthy of a Parliament House grounds located memorial, either.
