  1. Deplorable

    What a loudmouth shithead. Behaving just like Conroy and Cameron. On yer bike.

  2. gbees

    Ludlum is a cockhead pure & simple. Glad to see the rear end of the dual ctizen. I trust he will pay back the taxpayer funds he was paid?

  3. Gerry

    Greens acting like teenagers complaining to their mum ….

  4. Motelier

    Question need to asked.

    Senator Wong and Senator Cameron both need to follow the example of the Honourable Tony Abbott and provide proof that they have renounced their overseas citizenships.

    Failure to do so should bring charges of treason against them.

  5. Roger

    Fanatics don’t get irony.

  6. Robbo

    We can dub this Ludlum’s Last Hurrah. If he is remembered for anything it will be for being a loud mouthed bad mannered incompetent foreigner masquerading as an Australian. Another example of the stupidity of the Greens. He can bugger off and not come back.

  7. Oh what a tangled web we weave……….
    Green Bastard!

    Oh yes, the intellectuals on this blog can certainly muster an argument – “fucktard”, Shithead”, “slovenly pig”, “grub” & “cockhead”. If this is a leading libertarian site, and this is the best you can do, I hate to tell you, you’ve got nothing – if this was boxing, the equivalent class would be light flyweight…

  18. Brett

    One nice little legal question that tangentially emerges from Ludlum’s position is: if he was never validly elected as a Senator, because he was not eligible to be elected, then I wonder whether he gets the benefit of the parliamentary immunity for the various defamations he has uttered in the House and committee rooms against Hanson et al. Might be time to drop a few writs on Ludlum.

    Many of those making that claim, however, are social democrats who are simply not used to being challenged by articulate, educated and intelligent individuals” from your Blogging as a fine art. I must have missed the articulate, educated and intelligent comments in this particular post. Slinging insults may make your posters feel better, but it hardly adds to the sum of knowledge, does it?

    Call it “blaming” his mum if you want, but if he is telling the truth (which I have no present reason to doubt), what is he supposed to do? He is merely informing the public, as he should, of the circumstances which justify the deferral of any declaration that he is not a Senator, pending investigation of the situation.

    A pretty pathetic attempted gotcha, even by the abysmally poor standards of this site’s trolls.

  23. Mother Lode

    Actually, Alexander, these are not intended as arguments addressing a proposition.

    The Cats have a broad reportoire of styles they deftly use, in various conversations, as the mood takes them. You can even make a logical point with humour. Wittgenstein held that there was no reason a major philosophical work might not be in the form of a book of jokes.

    But it is revealing that you don’t see that. I would guess that you think that intelligent people are forever constipated by the burden. You imagine that Socrates never laughed and Shakespeare agonised over deeper meanings.

    Nietzsche dedicated an entire book, Die Frohliche Wissenschaft, as a rebuke to those people who saw thinking as a tortuous labour instead of relishing where it could take them.

    You mirthless, puritan bonehead.

  24. Dr Fred Lenin

    Wong a raving lunatic lesbian who went queer after being the bedmate of that SA wanker Weatherill. Cameron who was deported from the welfare republic of Scotland a dhit stirring Union creep who is barely literate .The illiterate Lambie from the ministry of housing flats that dickhead big mouth kiwi .this is the quality of wankers who are in the senate . The reps is marginally better ,what is it about politics that attracts total tossers, must be a spin of from the law trade .

    We certainly attract some flies. Alexander the not so great needs to brush up on trolling technique. So far just schoolboy level.

    You are doubling down for a guy the Greens don’t want either.

    Think before you have another meltdown.

  27. herodotus

    I must have missed the articulate, educated and intelligent comments in this particular post.

    But Luddlam the Green Senator Bovver Boy is great, ain’t e’ Alex?
    A list of his contributions to the national debate would reveal nothing of value.

  28. Tim Neilson

    Oh yes, the intellectuals on this blog can certainly muster an argument

    What do you want us to argue against? Put up something worth arguing against and see what happens.

  29. alexnoaholdmate

    Can I just point out – this drivelling snotnose Alex bears to relation to myself.

    I assume.

    I mean, condoms break, but still.

    Anyway – welcome Alex, the broken condom of the Cat!

  30. marcus

    Alexander – nice attempt at false equivalence. Crying about Canavan won’t bring Ludlam back.

    If Canavan goes down, then he goes down. However, at present, there’s a big difference between:

    (a) someone who ought to have known he was dual citizen, who was ignorant of the law and who had no choice but to resign; and

    (b) someone who (claims) that he couldn’t possibly have had any idea about his dual citizenship and may have legal options to remain in parliament.

    Personally, I couldn’t care less if Canavan goes down. The law is the law and if he has to go he has to go. Indeed, my first instinct was that he must be heaping a whole pile of smelly dung up a hill (after all, how could he possibly have become an Italian citizen without personally signing some sort of form?). That said, if he can provide the necessary evidence and the law allows for him to remain, why should anyone stop him or hold it against him?

    The ‘you’re just as bad as us argument’ simply doesn’t wash here.

    Lastly, the intellectuals on this blog weren’t invited to ‘muster an argument’ by this post. I should know because I posted it. They were merely expressing the emotion of anger at someone who largely deserves it. You on the other hand invited yourself to make an argument and proceeded with little more than a false equivalence and name calling – the latter of which was the very thing you were complaining about.

  31. Alexander

    sensitive little bunch, aren’t we? from Mother Lode “I would guess that you think that intelligent people are forever constipated by the burden. You imagine that Socrates never laughed and Shakespeare agonised over deeper meanings.” Thanks, you’ve given me far more laughs than you merit – particularly the ad hominem attacks. (exit pursued by bear).

  32. JC

    I must have missed the articulate, educated and intelligent comments in this particular post. Slinging insults may make your posters feel better, but it hardly adds to the sum of knowledge, does it?

    That’s been the entire history of the Greens and the far left, you disingenuous turd.

  33. J.H.

    Ludlam is a foreign ecofascist insurgent who was illegally installed into the Australian Parliament by the extremist Greens Party and who has interfered with and sabotaged our Constitutional Democracy and legislature by being illegally functional as an Australian Senator.

    Ludlam and Waters have to be made examples of….. These foreign extremists with political agendas hostile to Australian enterprise, our way of life and national sovereignty should never have been allowed to penetrate our system of government nor defraud the taxpayers.

    They need to be arrested, fined, jailed and made to pay every cent back. Both had an absolute obligation and responsibility to comply with the Australian Constitution….. They chose not to.

    Harsh you say?….. Not nearly as harsh as what Green ecofascism does to a trawler owner caught two tenths of a mile inside a new closure or a mining company out of compliance with impossible regulations. No leeway given in those circumstances… Yet when we find the instigators of this legislative terrorism are foreign insurgents bent on the destruction of Australian enterprise and sovereignty….. We’re supposed to forgive them and accept their excuses?…. No and Nope.

  34. Tim Neilson

    For info of young Cats, Alexander’s performance is standard MO for trolls on this site.
    1. drop in for some drive by xunt-artistry with no content.
    2. come back a bit later, utterly ignore the posts that articulate the fatuity of his previous offerings, and indulge in a sneer or two.
    3. self-congratulate.
    4. hurriedly wash the sticky white stain off the bottom front hem of his Che Guevara T shirt before mum gets home.
    It’ll be all too soon that you’ll become able to recognise the type.

    Alex, did you bring a note from your mother?

    Your homework won’t finish itself, young man.

  37. Mother Lode

    Yeah, that is the other troll thing. When people respond accuse them
    of being over-sensitive.

    In reality, when there is a little brown lump of organic matter in the pool, all decent guests’ first thought is to fish the putrid thing out and dispose of it.

  38. marcus

    Thanks Tim, Alexander’s debating quality has all the same hallmarks as the one I had with a Greens member on my blog:

    https://themarcusreview.com/2017/07/26/defending-the-indefensible/

    It’s fun swatting away their arguments from time to time.

  39. Dave in Marybrook

    Alexander… I won’t write my first impressions of you, because that’s an ad hominem tactic.
    Some non-obscene criticisms of Ludlam posted before you stuck your head in were bad bad mannered, slovenly, loudmouthed, like a teenager, condescending. Some were fleshed out, some were not… but all were on-topic.
    But you’re involved in this thread to tee off against… contributors who didn’t meet your standards of intellectual polish? Or are you disingenuous enough to be attempting to disrupt and diminish the forum itself?

    By Greens’ standards that was nearly a rational exchange. Perhaps it was all in the way you handled it.

  41. Habib

    Weren’t there some dicks here defending the twat, that “he wasn’t as bad as the rest, and defended free speech”. Christ on a snowmobile some dills will defend the indefensible, the fucker is a lefty from central casting, any opinion deemed unacceptable will be spoken over the top of, or shouted down.

    Attention needs to be paid to the recovery of funds, these maggots need to be reduced to paupers.

  42. Rabz

    Grate – so the spudpeeler’s back (again).

    And no, I’m not referring to that vile little drug addicted onanist dudlam.

  43. Warty

    Yup, we get the irony; we can see that Ludlum was taking the moral high ground, and couldn’t bare the fact that Pauline Hanson just might, just might score some useful political points; but jeez there was a hell of a lot of screeching. The son of a bitch ought to have been kicked out the moment he broke a point of order, but he continued to do so, leaving a wake of screeching turmoil.
    Did someone mention the need for senate reform the other day? I’m sure they did.

  44. Alexander

    Who was defending Ludlum? I was merely trying to point out that calling people names doesn’t really cut it in the real world. Still, thanks for the heads up about how inept you all are – I’ll leave you to the echo chambers of your barely literate hate, safe in the knowledge that your ugliness is confined to these pages. Oh, and if any of you castrati do get out in the real world, fucking insults won’t cut it… And Tim? Your mother wants her MAGA hat back, stains and all…

  45. Alexander

    And last words to Dave in Marybrook, I appreciate that breaking into any thread could be disingenuous, I just happen to be one of those old fashioned people who believe in civilised debate, rather than calling your opponent a dickhead. And that’s why the “school kid” insults are laughable, I’m old enough to believe in debate, rather than the crap spewed out here. Still, here you are.

    Alexander (whinging about ad hominems) responds with his own ad hominem.
    Classic!

    p.s. If you had spent more than a nanosecond on the Cat, you’d understand that colourful metaphors are standard fare here (and few escape unscathed). However, it’s all part of robust conversation and debate on the Cat. If you don’t like it then there is always your Safe Space to hide in.

    Alexander, go stick your head up a dead bear’s bum. Hereabouts xunts are usually called xunts, rather than decent human behaviour-challenged individuals with acquired diseased sphincter spectrum disorder.

  48. Alexander

    Ad hominem warning
    I’m amazed that you lot feel so special, you obviously can’t argue a point, your tiny little todgers shrivel at the first frost of disagreement, and you need a pack of Yorkshire terriers to disembowel some one who disagrees with you. Good luck with your revolution – and do take a good look at your fellow commentators and ask yourself, “am I that sad a loser?”. Probably the answer will be, “Yes”.

    So hard to argue with that proposition – and therein lies the question, why do you lot persist in thinking your views are so valuable? You’re hilariously stupid enough to believe that’s going to shut people down. Fucking libertarianism, you can’t even agree what it means – looks like pack hunting down your opponents, like any other totalitarian shut down bullshit.

  53. Dave in Marybrook

    I’ve lost the tiny URL code, but whenever someone harped on about homophobia being behind resistance to LGBTIQA+ marriage, I had a youtube clip of Ludlam’s extended anal-rape routine framing Abbott… it was of course his made-for-the-ABC pitch for the extraordinary WA senate re-run, with an empty chamber listening.
    Sure enough, it went viral on the Friday night news. It was like the good old days, when Friday night ABC was carry-on fag gags.
    Should the ARIA start certifying “viral” the same way it used to certify “hit records” and “platinum sales”? Recent Uhlmann routine was reported as “viral” by the same ABC that carried it online, and there was a genuine fraud in Gillard’s misogyny script going viral…
    Anyway, I suppose viruses are Ludlam’s only career hazard from now on.

  54. Habib

    Saying it twice doesn’t make it any more worthy, intelligent, or relevant. Is that you Scott? Better polish those shoes and wipe your hard drive, Cashies won’t pay top dollar otherwise, and a cache of dwarf porn could be embarrasing. If of course you could be embarrased.

    fucking laughable, I do hope in real life you get to argue your sad little views, but that’s what these pages are all about, isn’t it, you can vent your weedy vile opinions , without having to walk them out into real life and have them tested. Still, as are monkeys at the circus, you’re endlessly entertaining. Heartfelt thank you.

  59. alexnoaholdmate

    Maybe if you’d paid as much attention to the constitution as you do to your childish insults, Scott – sorry, “Alex” – you wouldn’t be unemployed now.

  60. Robbo

    For someone who proclaims that he is above the level of comments posted on the topic of Ludlam you seem terribly sensitive to comments made about you Alexander.
    You have clearly got yourself into a real tizzy as the giveaway of your double posting at 8.13pm and then 8.14pm shows.
    Just go and take a couple of Bex and have a nice rest. Tomorrow is another day.

  61. Dave in Marybrook

    Alexander….
    For f’s sake, general guidelines are you should either talk about current affairs… or talk about yourself. You know, amusing anecdotes, personal reflections, link to articles that you’ve discovered… don’t talk about Cats, we all know we’re nasty. It should be obvious there’s an unofficial wordplay contest to be the nastiest, because if this is like a DAAS routine, anyone with any brio wants to be Paul.

  62. Alexander

    “childish insults” – check out the first comments in this thread. And thanks for the confirmation about how (ad hominem warning) dull and infantile your clan are. Still, you lot keep on pretending how edgy you are, what a bunch of outrageous truth tellers you are, and how the world really needs your insight. And then please, go over all the comments in this thread and do it critically. And check your biases at the door.

  63. Alexander

    And strange how you remind me of the Marxists at Flinders Uni in the late 70s – same tactics to shut down your opponents…

  64. Alexander

    And Dave in Marybrook – DAAS were, you know, funny, not a bunch of sad old geezers venting about how the world isn’t what it should be. If you like what you see from your fellow posters, well, stick with it. Me, I’m just surprised about how much vitriol there is in the world,..

    You appear to be less intelligent than me.
    And I am below average.
    Bravo.
    You’ll fit right in.
    Let me know when you’ve paid off those degrees, yes?

  68. marcus

    By Greens’ standards that was nearly a rational exchange. Perhaps it was all in the way you handled it.

    I think the fact that we’ve been colleagues and friends for a while also helped. That said, the arguments coming my way were still pretty far from rational.

    The funny thing is that I’ve just spent the last hour listening to the likes of Richo and Nicholas Reece on Sky doing the exact same thing in trying to claim that ‘the law is an ass’ in all of this.

    They’ve also tried to make a big deal of the fact that, in the Waters matter, the relevant Canadian law (no longer requiring formal renouncement of citizenship) was changed a week after she was born. So what? Does that mean, having been born in Canada, she has no need to check things and be 100% sure?

    And if a proposed change to the law was the subject of a referendum, does anyone seriously think it would get up?

  69. Habib

    Flinders commies sit down to piss. At least the ones hatched with a Y chromosome. And admitting to being a fan of DAAS narrows the field considerably, the number of sad, humourless twats is substantial, but geographically restricted.

    Fucktard.

    Non of the above thanks Alexander. Sometimes one word is enough in this world of ‘civilised debate’. I don’t need to have a monotonous, ongoing, gentlemanly, verbal stoush with everyone I disagree with. Sometimes they just need to know what I think of them. If others agree, so be it.

    Fucktard.

    Sorry, my mistake. To describe you as having a zero IQ would be an insult to all those useful inanimate objects out there. You make the universe stupider by your very existence, but you preen yourself on being such a hero keyboard warrior stealing ideas from the very people you’re vilifying. And you’re such a sub-cretinous imbecile you do it on the same thread that that idea was posted.
    You’re just way, way, too sad a little dweeb.

  72. Dave in Marybrook

    There’s an interesting thought I’d like to flesh out… a generation of us, say 70’s born, grew up with the Big Gig as the edgy late-ish comedy, and DAAS were magnificent in bringing OTT misanthropy to the stage to laugh at, laugh with and be made to squirm a bit. I know they were not the first or last, but they were important to us (remember channel 2 and GWN were the only things to be seen on screen in Marybrook) and pushed the boundaries, and whenever I’m tempted to prick the ridiculousness of -say- tiptoeing around a deceased blind muzak maker because he was Aboriginal, and ridiculously referring to him by his Roman initial and a wanky honorary doctorate, I hold my tongue until I think it’s as smart and, importantly, as transparently playful, as Paul in his Toreador jacket days.
    Alexander, you’re about as witty as Wendy Harmer. Go start a website of your own and see if it floats.

  73. Alexander

    no surprises there EvilElvis – just surprised that you managed to spell fucktard all by yourself, or is it just repetition? What a truly fucking stupid bunch you all are, I do feel privileged to be allowed a glimpse into the depths of your “libertarian” nirvana – it’s reassuring that you’re so fucking boringly ordinary. It’s not like you’re producing any ideas to galvanize anyone, you’re purely reactionary. Give us a call when you’re all grown up, and (although some of you seem incapable of reading comprehension), there may be an internship (unpaid) in some obscure media post.

    It’s been a while since a persistent troll turned up. The point is if you don’t have a point and your lack of a point is shite then you cop it. Lefties don’t have a point. Any point they make is just vanity and self-regard oozing out; and unless that vanity is acknowledged, indeed cherished vitriol based on misanthropy is unleashed. And it is at this stage that the troll has to meet standards: wit, originality, information are all acceptable. However merely denigrating from the assumed position of pointless superiority is not.

    Fuck off alexander; you’re a dud troll.

    Buddy, you don’t engage in serious arguments here. Just go on about how much better Hezbollah & the IRA are compared to the loafers at the ADF, and that Israel (the country that did 9/11, btw) is a refuge for money-hungry usurers and Freemasons.

    Also, the income tax should be 80%, and Newstart should be $1,000… a day.

  86. Alexander

    Well, if there’s ever going to be any sort of intellectual revival, it won’t be from you lot. You’re well versed in vitriol, but that’s all you’ve got. Thanks for your participation, if I ever need quotes from hapless dickless curmudgeons, rest assured, you’re it. Congrats – I was (slightly) worried about a resurgence of the right, but the predominance of name calling – cockhead, slovenly pig, disingenous turd, fucktard – oh, read your own posts -has put my fears to rest. If you can’t even articulate your own point of view in your OWN forum without resorting to fuckwittery, well, you’re in trouble. As for being a “marketplace for ideas”, Catallaxy, you’re laughable.

    You are upset because a foreigner lied on a statutory declaration, collected millions in a taxpayer funded Commonwealth salary, and is being called out for having no respect for other Senators and falsely accusing other (validly elected) Senators of criminality – in an effort he made to disrupt a hearing about how climate change is a scam – and he never had the right to be there in the first place.

    Tragic stuff. The Greens don’t even want him in Parliament anymore.

    You are defending him to your heart’s content. The harder you pull, the more you are hurting us and saving the planet. Apparently. I think you just like the feeling. If you had a brain and actually cared about “global warming”, you’d be investing heavily in uranium stocks. London to a brick you think that is “evil”, because you are a scientific illiterate.

  90. Ivan Denisovich

    Tin-foil hat firmly affixed:

    Conspiracy theory enthusiast and Julian Assange fan-boy WA Greens Senator Scott Ludlam is living proof that owning a smart phone doesn’t make you a genius….

    He told a sympathetic and gullible lefty scribe Andrew Crook that:

    West Australian Greens Senator Scott Ludlam says his iPhone may have been hacked by the federal government so it could keep tabs on an internet activist.

    Ludlam told Crook from New Zealand this morning that his iPhone had been exhibiting strange behaviour consistent with external interception when he escorted former WikiLeaks spokesman Jacob Appelbaum from Ballarat to Melbourne last Friday.

    The strange behaviour was that his phone battery was running out, a problem that has confronted us all from time to time, especially those in rural areas where the signal isn’t strong and those using smart-phones. Only a few us blame the security services for the annoying problem of battery drain.

    He concluded, with surprising self-awareness:

    “I don’t want to come across as paranoid and delusional…”

    Oops… too late.

    One of Crook’s commenters offered a more realistic explanation for Ludlam’s phone battery issues:

    Let’s see. Does the Senator understand PUSH and 3G when in a 2G coverage zone?

    I’m guessing that this is his battery draining because he had GPS on, and was refreshing maps, or because he’s used to city centre service with high signal levels on 2100 and not rural on 850.

    I’m guessing that the more both of them descended into a paranoid delusional fantasy, the more they used their phones, with more apps, all of them attempting location services, and it fed itself into flatness.

    We’ve all played ‘spot the special branch’ and its pretty boring. Since I have a number-2 haircut do you assume I’m a plod? I didn’t realize english premier football league tops was a secret code. I assumed that all went out with Hankie code for the gay community. I assume anyone in a tie in Canberra is a pollie. Maybe I’m wrong and they all work for DSD?

    Really, if the ASIO want to identify each other, they can do it far more effectively than a leeds united top.

    http://www.vexnews.com/tin-foil-hat-senator-greens-party-politician-scott-ludlam-thinks-big-brother-is-watching-him/

    So what did the Greens do with a Senator so clueless about communication?

    Scary to consider Ludlam is the Greens spokesperson on communications.

    Naturally. LOL.

  91. Leo G

    if I ever need quotes from hapless dickless curmudgeons, rest assured, you’re it. Congrats – I was (slightly) worried about a resurgence of the right, but the predominance of name calling – … – oh, read your own posts -has put my fears to rest.

    Read your own hapless, dickless, curmudgeonly ironic quote.

  92. Alexander

    You’ve missed the point mate, I wasn’t defending Ludlum, I was trying to argue that calling the bloke names didn’t really elevate the conversation. And your petty little comments about onanisnism and vanity only demonstrate my original point. As for being scientifically illiterate – I haven’t even talked about science, tho, strangely enough, I do have a BSc. London to a brick, you’ve got no training in science or logic – rather like the majority of commentators on this post.

  93. Alexander

    Leo G – finally got the irony Leo? Well done. You obviously don’t need things to be spelt out in big letters.

  94. Habib

    Predicting world weather in a couple of decades time by ouija board isn’t science, sorry to deflate your derigible, old legume.

  95. Baldrick

    Alexander if you feel triggered in the slightest, best to log off the Cat and get yourself to a Safe Space toot sweet before you end up as a Green snowflake.

  96. Alexander

    Ahh Baldrick – the old snowflake thang. Maybe you and your comrades need to get to a safe place, seems like dissension triggers your insecurities. So sorry to invade your “safe place” with comments that don’t chime with your world view. Perhaps you could ask the moderators to remove my comments so that your safe place is still secure, and dissenters are forever exiled?

    Oh yes, the intellectuals on this blog can certainly muster an argument – “fucktard”, Shithead”, “slovenly pig”, “grub” & “cockhead”. If this is a leading libertarian site, and this is the best you can do, I hate to tell you, you’ve got nothing – if this was boxing, the equivalent class would be light flyweight…

    If you have better insults then let’s have them.

  98. Baldrick

    Au Cointreau Alexander, your opinion is still valued. Stupid, but still valued.

  99. Stimpson J. Cat

    “safe place”

    It’s safe space you Muppet.
    Safe Space.

    You are literally having your inept insults corrected by someone who is mentally ill.
    Jesus F$cking Christ.
    Come back after practicing in the mirror a few times like Grigsie.

  100. struth

    Alexander hasn’t offered an argument on anything.
    He has come here to insult and call people names.
    We have already had robust discussion about our constitution and Ludlums actions.
    The only thing left is to call the lying POS out and condemn him as best we can.

    Alexander hasn’t offered an argument about anything. ….ever.
    He just drops in occasionally to remind us just how much lack of self awareness there can be in a brain dead victim of indoctrination.
    Hypocrisy is born of a lack of self awareness.
    Everytime trolls like this turn up they confirm the sickness of mind of our political opposition.
    He seems ( from past visits) fairly young and dumb but this lack of self awareness coupled with envy are the debilitating personality flaws that consume lefties.

  101. A Lurker

    I was (slightly) worried about a resurgence of the right, but the predominance of name calling – cockhead, slovenly pig, disingenous turd, fucktard – oh, read your own posts -has put my fears to rest.

    So you were frightened about a resurgence of the right, but some name calling on the Cat has put your fears to rest? Right then, carry on. It’s like the captain of the Titanic saying – oh, it’s just a little iceberg, nothing to worry about mates, keep on course.

    You see, the Cat is just a tiny argumentative visible tip of a massive hidden iceberg of deep cold fury and betrayal. That hidden iceberg is all the once-sleeping people who are now waking up. Those people are just ordinary folk, they’re not normally political or activists, they just want to be left alone to live their lives in peace. But now they’re waking up angry and are learning just how deeply they have been betrayed and deceived. They’re not quite ready for a fight yet – but soon enough they will be, and then there will be hell to pay. But by all means, dismiss the Cat, but understand, the resurgence is still coming.

  102. Cannibal

    the troll feeding frenzy continues.

    back on topic – hypocrisy, standard political mo. Non-Australian insurgents in Parliament just takes it to a new level.

    And a thought – if ATO staff are subject to regular tax audits, shouldn’t politicians be also ? It’s way past time for all pollies to be scrutinized in the same measure of their desire to scrutinize the rest of us. And not just tax audits, let’s have security screenings, police checks, working with children checks, and citizenship checks paid for out of the their own pockets BEFORE they are put up as candidates.

  103. Deplorable

    At the end of the day ludlam by his juvenile behaviour above is still a shithead.
    Funniest read for a while .

  104. Tim Neilson

    What are you in real life? Not much, if you need to beat your chest in these posts.

    In his 15th or 16th post on this thread.

    Self awareness factor – zero.

    Onanism factor – infinite.

  105. alexnoaholdmate

    Alex has achieved his purpose. Run interference and derail the thread. It worked.

    Yes, I fell for it too. We played into his slimy, goo-covered hands.

    PS I just want to stress again that he’s no relation of mine. Onanism is a luxury I do not have the time to indulge in.

    Scott Ludlam and Alexander – dumb and dumber.

    Bullshit. You don’t have a BSc, you’re just outraged that a rude, boorish prick who pocketed millions was booted from the Senate after he lied to get there.

    Petty comments?

    Listen fuckwit, you spent all night abusing people with no sense of self-awareness.

    Let me reiterate for you, moron:

    NOT EVEN THE GREENS WANT HIM BACK IN PARLIAMENT.

    You must be a special kind of idol worshipping space cadet to be this butt hurt.

  108. Wilma

    How delightful,how simply frightful to be the superior Scott Ludlum with that circulating around the traps.
    A loud, arrogant, overbearing constantly interrupting bore, Censorious of Pauline Hanson who he declares to be breaking the law and contemptuous of the procedures and courtesies of Parliament whilst breaking the law himself.

  109. alexander

    I must apologise to Stimpson J. Cat about my use of Safe Place instead Safe Space. I wouldn’t wish to inflame his self proclaimed mental illness, but in my defence, I’m not terribly au fait with certain modern terms…
    Safe Place, Safe Space – if that’s important to you people, I sincerely regret my mistake.

  110. Stimpson J. Cat

    you people

    Whoa.
    Just whoa.

  111. Stimpson J. Cat

    It is good that you can admit you are wrong and apologize.
    I forgive you.
    Maybe you should do some research before using terms that can potentially trigger people?
    After all we are all here to learn at the altar of knowledge.

  112. alexander

    Sorry mate, it’s not an “altar of knowledge”, it’s just a forum for people to vent. I won’t be back, but I wish you all the best with the contest of ideas. And “you people”? “whoah”? what are you, so sort of lost tribe? It’s nice to know how how easily the lib/right get all (whats your phrase?) ah, yeah, butthurt, See you snowflakes, you’re beautiful in your fragility!

  113. alexnoaholdmate

    And “you people”? “whoah”? what are you, so sort of lost tribe? It’s nice to know how how easily the lib/right get all (whats your phrase?) ah, yeah, butthurt, See you snowflakes, you’re beautiful in your fragility!

    Alex is so “clever” that he mistook a typical bit of Stimpy irony for an act of actual victim-virtue claiming.

    Quo usque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra?

    Moron.

    I won’t be back

    More butt hurt.

  115. alexander

    Whoah – Cicero, irony and moron – you just can’t help being the sort of shitty little privileged prefects at private schools who imagine they’re educated because they can quote latin. Oh and the “more butt hurt” comment – are you really all 2nd year law students whose mum and dad indulge you too much because of your “precociousness”?

  116. alexnoaholdmate

    More “final concerts” than John Farnham.

    In the name of God, man, go!

    P.S. I didn’t go to a private school. Why the implication that someone educated at a state school would not be capable of knowing Cicero?

    Scratch a Lefty “friend of the proletariat”, find an elitist full of scorn for the great unwashed. If there’s a Catallaxy statement of faith, that would be it.

    And you’ve confirmed it for us. Again.

  117. .

    I won’t be back

    Yeah. More butt hurt, you’re a Scott Ludlam space cadet.

    You’re like a weird cultist dude.

  118. alexander

    Look, out in the real world, where ideas are discussed, theories are tested and insults are generally recognised as a last resort, this really doesn’t past muster. It’s a sort of circle jerk engaged in by people who imagine they are somehow special, or misunderstood, or enjoy being an outsider. Good luck, though I suspect that the sheer mundanity of your ideas (my 83 year old mum was positive though) won’t create a huge rush to your cause, but disaffected losers (all 31 of em) will flock to the Cats.

  119. Empire

    Nice chip. How’s your shoulder?

  120. .

    Being a self-declared champion of Scott Ludlam is rather deranged. No one wants him back in the Senate in the “real world”, not even the Greens.

  121. alexander

    alexnoaholdmate – oh please, why should I, in the name of God, go? You’re so so soft, so comfortable in your own little world of Cattallaxy, as soon as someone comes along and is a pissy little irritant, you lot get all worked up. It’s pathetic. Here’s a thought – produce an idea, a plan, a blueprint for a better society instead of whining in the closeted pages of this blog.

  122. .

    as soon as someone comes along and is a pissy little irritant

    Glad you said it.

    I won’t be back

    Thanks.

  123. alexander

    Empire – of course, to the discerning reader, it should have been obvious that I was one of those privileged private school prefects, but then (snob alert), Catallaxy contributors do seem to have a few kangaroos loose in the top paddock…

  124. alexander

    Oh, and how cute that Senator David Leyonhjelm’s Liberal Democrats page pops up, with the “weird cultist dude” and “butt hurt” comments. Fuck, it’s like a tiny universe that caters for people who feel that no-one understands them. Thank you so much for “sharing” (yeah, I know, it’s a lefty concept), but you really are truly hilarious, I look forward to sharing these pages with my conservative friends (you know, sense of humour type people), and if we ever should meet in a pub, I’ll look out for the geeky, friendless bloke trying to look as though anyone is remotely interested in what he/she has got to say.

  125. .

    Yeah, I’m sure you have plenty of conservative friends seeing that you are fighting a demented crusade to protect Scott Ludlam, a man who cheated his way into the Senate after he lost an election and was never eligible to stand.

  126. alexander

    Ok – I really do have to clarify a few points here. A “demented crusade to protect Scott Ludlam” – you really are a tragic when it comes to reading comprehension. I started this conversation because I thought that the insults levelled at Ludlam were pointless, and demeaned all those who took part in the conversation – not to defend him.
    The sheer ugliness of the comments? I like to imagine that Cats contributors were abandoned, cast adfrit, and live out lonely lives with only their crabby tabby cats as companions, or perhaps their alcoholic uncles… Otherwise, I’m at a loss to understand their non functional fuck headedness.

  127. .

    I thought that the insults levelled at Ludlam were pointless

    So you spend three days at a blog walking into rakes?

    Get help.

  128. alexander

    “So you spend three days at a blog walking into rakes? Get help.”
    So you spend three days answering posts (even though you’re Leyonhjelm’s bitch boy)? Doesn’t the important Master have better things to do than piss around with a bloke (me) who enjoys fucking up the status quo? As Trump would say, “Sad”. With an exclamation mark. Gangsta, bro…

  129. alexander

    Thanx moderators – I won’t be bothering you (or your contributors) again – I enjoy tilting at windmills, but I’m not stupid enough (my extended comments notwithstanding) to believe that anything will change. Love your work, and may all your contributors be witty and wise and well, something starting with “w”. Alliteration always helps…
