    Q&A Gold Coast: ‘Extreme vetting’ claims for post-Budget show

    UNIVERSITY students have threatened to protest during filming of Q&A, amid claims they are not represented on this week’s post-Budget show.

    The National Union of Students is calling for protesters to gather outside the Gold Coast Arts Centre from 8pm on Monday, to coincide with filming of a special Budget debrief of the flagship ABC program.

    The union claims students who hoped to be in the audience during the show had been “vetted” by the program.

    I wonder how many will successfully sneak in dressed as ‘LNP voters’.

    I reckon if the indigenous want their own day and own song they can go for it, if they can decide that after 40k years they have decided things Like that. And they can pay for it too. Just getting that off my chest.

    “Extreme vetting”. Because University students are those least capable of using reason instead of force to make a point.

    This country is fucked.

    Birmingham proving why he’s a small ‘l’ Stupid.Fucking.Liberal numpty.

  38. Turtle of WA

    This is how the left treat you when you give in to them, Malcolm. They humiliate you.

  39. Carpe Jugulum

    Is it just me or does brimingham look like he has soiled himself?

  40. Dave in Marybrook

    I do believe Laritha Waterth is wearing a breastfeeding top. In this, she has my full support.

  41. Turtle of WA

    Is it just me or does brimingham look like he has soiled himself?

    He and Mal thought the ABC would throw their arms around them.

  42. Baldrick

    Turtlehead Bowen is a cockhead, that’s a given, but he’s sounding more hinged than Birmingham

  43. Carpe Jugulum

    Waters, proving you can be a brain dead bint and get well paid.

    Without being a hooker.

  44. MsDolittle

    “Sorry, can’t be clapping every statement”, that’s an interruption right?

  45. Spider

    Far out. If I hear big end of bloody town again. I’ll scream.

  46. Carpe Jugulum

    He and Mal thought the ABC would throw their arms around them.

    Yes, it’s called a choke hold

    Stupid.Fucking.Liberals

  47. MsDolittle

    Hookers are smarter.

  48. Turtle of WA

    What an absurd looking woman.

  49. Carpe Jugulum

    If I hear big end of bloody town again. I’ll scream

    Best you warn your neighbours

  50. Baldrick

    Why isn’t Larissa breastfeeding now? She was so happy to post a picture virtue signalling doing it in parliament.

  51. Baldrick

    “If you tax people too much you’re going to blunt the animal spirits of Capitalism.” – Snowcone

  52. Carpe Jugulum

    Why isn’t Larissa breastfeeding now

    People have had dinner and don’t wish to projectile vomit by viewing her flaccid dugs.

  53. Carpe Jugulum

    Will bobblehead birmingham STFU about the soon to be massively rorted NDIS and how screwing the taxpayer for it is just peachy.

    Stupid.Fucking.Liberals

  54. Baldrick

    People have had dinner and don’t wish to projectile vomit by viewing her flaccid dugs.

    Harsh, but fair.

  55. Carpe Jugulum

    Well, one of the brain dead ‘students’ snuck in.

    Ooh. Ugly baby didn’t end up pretty questioner.

  57. Pete of Perth

  58. Carpe Jugulum

    Top tax rates got a mention.

    I paid the top tax rate in Australia, it was one of the main reasons for leaving.

    In one year i paid more in Tax than our daughter earned working full time.

  59. Baldrick

    Birmingham trying to defend the indefensible tax increases and getting slammed by Leftards.
    Beautiful to watch.

  60. Carpe Jugulum

    For the love of God someone bitchslap the Stupid.Fucking.Liberal and tell him that the average punter doesn’t give a rats arse about the fucking ndis.

  61. Turtle of WA

    For the love of God someone bitchslap the Stupid.Fucking.Liberal and tell him that the average punter doesn’t give a rats arse about the fucking ndis.

    Too late for that. The Libtards are now restricted to arguing with Labor about how best to implement Labor policies.

  62. Cpt Seahawks

    If I earn $250k I now dodge $1,400 wealth tax for $1,250 Medicare increase. And I still heave out on income tax.

  63. Turtle of WA

    Bowen is smiling during the debt question.

  64. Carpe Jugulum

    If I earn $250k I now dodge $1,400 wealth tax for $1,250 Medicare increase. And I still heave out on income tax.

    Is that including the 2% budget repair levy?

  65. Turtle of WA

    Willox: oh well you know who knows what will happen.

  66. Baldrick

    Innes Wilcox is the only one talking sense, and that’s saying something!

  67. Baldrick

    Socialist biddy says the banks make too much money. Give me some.

  68. Carpe Jugulum

    Hey it’s bash the banks time.

    A little tip for the audience retard, the banks will pass the cost on to their customers and it is no good bitching that they earn too much.

    That is what their shareholders expect of them.

  69. Turtle of WA

    Banks have lots of money. Cutting edge thinking.

  70. Spider

    The banks are a very EASY solution.

  71. Baldrick

    There is no incentive to make money in this country anymore. Everybody else wants a slice of your hard work.

  72. Pete of Perth

    Q&A is worse than brewer’s droop

  73. Carpe Jugulum

    Larissa doesn’t like high salaries from bankers.

    A friend of mines father is the head of overseas finance for a bank in Aust.

    He makes a high income because he works hours that would drop a horse and if he makes a bad decision he can put thousands of people out of work.

    STFU greentard.

  74. Cpt Seahawks

    Is that including the 2% budget repair levy?

    They were calling that the “wealth tax”. Should have quoted.

  75. Turtle of WA

    Willox pulling his finger out at last.

  76. Cpt Seahawks

    Reverse italics

  77. Turtle of WA

    Good point Carpe. She should be grateful that there are people who are insane enough to work that hard. Without them we’d be doomed.

  78. Baldrick

    Larissa doesn’t like high salaries from bankers.

    … but she didn’t mind spending $414,000 taxpayer dollars on an office fitout.

  79. Spider

    There are some fearsome old battle axes in tonight

  80. MsDolittle

    Doc just looked over my shoulder and was surprised to learn that Julie Andrews is left wing.

  82. Carpe Jugulum

    Ok, time for a whiny uni student.

    Pay your own way swampy.

  83. Carpe Jugulum

    I see that the alpbc vetting process works as well as usual

  84. Turtle of WA

    Articulate little fuckers, those yoonee shtyoodents.

  85. Baldrick

    And Q&A once again turns into a University Socialist Alliance farce

  86. Cpt Seahawks

    That incomprehensible chap had a point. He is a dick.

  87. Turtle of WA

    Extreme vetting in action.

  88. Baldrick

    Was that the ABC interrupting somebody’s right to free speech?
    Oh the ironing.

  89. Turtle of WA

    Green encourages rudeness.

  90. Cpt Seahawks

    The chaps. I feel their presence Peter. But I will not see them tonight.

  91. Carpe Jugulum

    Single mum complains about her soon to be outdated degree that she hasn’t started yet.

    The stupid, it burns.

  92. Carpe Jugulum

    Greenscum complains about free degrees in the past.

    The Navy paid for mine i had a *ROSO of course time + 1 year.

    * Return of Service Obligation

  93. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Greenscum complains about free degrees in the past.

    Greenscum doesn’t understand that “free” degrees in the past were either scholarship, or paid for by the taxpayer..

  94. Baldrick

    “free” degrees

    Wasn’t that a band name in the 70’s?

  95. Turtle of WA

    Waters takes a chance to scare the kids with ManBearPig.

  96. Carpe Jugulum

    Snowflake thinks it is hard for young people to get ahead.

    Perhaps being in a discipline that is in demand or actually being better than others at your job may remedy that.

  97. Baldrick

    The shorter snowflake: I want what you got, but I want it now.

  98. Carpe Jugulum

    Wasn’t that a band name in the 70’s?

    I think it was a temperature measurement for Kilt wearers.

  99. Turtle of WA

    Excellent close-ups of smug little know-alls who want everything for nothing.

  100. Turtle of WA

    Snowcone threatens to lead the Children of the [snowflake] Revolution.

  101. The BigBlueCat

    Give these whining little uni students a few years actually working a job and I’m proving their income, and all these budget issues will go away. Same as it ever was….

  102. Turtle of WA

    Bell End Head: help kids save for a home by taxing savings.

  103. Carpe Jugulum

    Innes would rather be 53 than 23.

    So do I, because at 53 your are old enough to know better and young enough to not give a shit.

  104. The BigBlueCat

    All my 3 kids have / will effectively end their uni education debt free. We started to invest in their future the day they were born. The same is available to everyone, though clearly many families choose different paths in therms of their finances and preparing their kids for the future.

  105. hzhousewife

    Greenscum complains about free degrees in the past.

    This really gets my goat. No-one’s degree was free, if you didn’t pay for it yourself, your fellow Australian tax-payers did.

  106. Carpe Jugulum

    Well that was a painful way to spend an evening.

  107. Baldrick

    What an abomination that was.
    Sydney Writers Festival Q&A next week, promises to be a bigger one.

  108. Carpe Jugulum

    Next week is from the SWF, all left all night.

    I should run a book on how many time Abbott/TrumpSatan666 are mentioned.

  109. Turtle of WA

    Next week:

    Lawrence Krauss, Rat Boy.

    Nikki the Walking Corpse Savva, heaping shit on Abbott just when Malcolm’s place is looking shaky.

  110. Carpe Jugulum

    Ok Troops Interruptions came in at 34

    Turtle was close but, “missed it by that much”.

    Next week is the Jackpot round.

  111. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    All my 3 kids have / will effectively end their uni education debt free</blockquote

    It's been a somewhat Faustian bargain, but the next generation of my family will end their uni educations debt free – their degrees are in medicine, law, agriculture, engineering and commerce.

  112. Carpe Jugulum

    Ok Troops I’m done

    Oyasumi Nasai.

  113. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    My compliments and thanks Carpe San.

    You mentioned Royal Australian Navy service – my one time brother in law served twenty seven years in pussers – and was seasick, every time he went to sea..

  114. classical_hero

    Their abc, their Department of Truth, unleash their pet leftwing militia [the Department of Love] upon team turnbull for failing to be the correct sort of leftists.

    It’s been a somewhat Faustian bargain, but the next generation of my family will end their uni educations debt free – their degrees are in medicine, law, agriculture, engineering and commerce.

    I got my degree for free thanks to Whitlam – I’m not sure that economically that was the wisest thing for Whitlam to do – Universities should be for our brightest and best, and they cost a hell of a lot more to run than your local high school on a per-student basis. Mine did theirs in something commercially viable (Multimedia, Photography and Architecture), and if not at least their degrees won’t have been a burden on the tax system.

    When you see international deliriously happy to pay 7x what the locals do, then we know that its not about cost, but about privilege. The privilege should be paid for by those who want the privilege and can make good use of it. Those doing gender studies need to have a good look at their courses and work out how on earth are they going to get a job out of that (other than those jobs that their crony neo-Marxists will give them and that we all inevitably pay for).

    Degrees that end up as dead-end, dole-hoovering drains on our economy need to be culled – but of course they won’t since the Uni’s make a motza from them courtesy of the gummint.

    We can all give thanks for the great whittleman for giving “free degrees” as his legacy since then our younyversidies have produced over three million lawtradespersons contributing to to the wonderfull tax fairness we have today . The amount of legistlation regulation and pure bullshit they have contributed to our democracy .A true democracy where we are forced to vote forced to vote for people we despise in preferences ,”ruled ” by career politicians who failed in the lawtrade pay taxes to keepbludgers home grown and introduced from primitive lands to vote labor ,to pay for a propaganda machine for the green left , we have huge amounts borrowed in our name to be given away to foreign crooks in the form of “aid” and subsidies for inefficient “renewable energy ” and keep the u,n,communists in luxury . Great thing democracy innit ?
