    Is there anyone on the panel that doesn’t live off the taxpayer?

  10. custard

    I’m sorry Cats I will have to recuse myself from watching tonight in the interests of my own well being.

    6! Is that one taken?

    Good night, I’ll check in tomorrow.

  11. Cpt Seahawks

    Who’s that black woman and what’s she doing on a show about Aborigines?

    I thought we only cared about qwerty marriage and the climate change. I hope they don’t have a blackout during this show.

  12. Baldrick

    Is there anyone on the panel and in the audience that doesn’t live off the taxpayer?
    It fixes it.

    Staring into a fiscal black hole.

  16. Pete of Perth

    Elijah will get a mention. And… it’s whitey’s fault

  17. Cpt Seahawks

    This week might be too much of a challenge for some cats to tune in. It will be quite a challenge, I’ve upped my doses.

    I am so ashamed

  32. Lotto is open

    Put me down for 20.

    My bet is, despite flashmobs in the studio being “clandestine & unforeseen”, and unpreventable, that the ABC will be able to prevent them, at least for the duration of this episode.

  55. Turtle of WA

    Quiz – which of these two characters does Noel Peason think he is?

  56. Carpe Jugulum

    Ok – back on track

    1st question the importance of language

    Followed up by to abo’s who can barely speak english

  57. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Q&A have stuffed up or Dylan Voller did not receive his invite to represent Aboriginal youth.

    I nominate BrettW for a special award of the arseless chaps, by default, if there is no winner.

  58. Megan

    I’m late arriving but I’ll take 29 in the lotto if it’s on offer.

    Go you good things!

  59. Sparkx

    Oh no, the question is not in language!!

  60. Carpe Jugulum

  65. Carpe Jugulum

    Megan 29 is already taken

    Sorry

  66. Baldrick

    Typical Alinskyist tactics. Call it ‘uniting’ all Australian’s by providing a separate governing body for a certain race.

  67. Elle

    Stan Grant is a disgrace. He should embrace his Aboriginality. To tan up as he has more and more over the years is just racist. Be proud of the white side of you, Stan – bro.

  68. Carpe Jugulum

    Next speaker is Peter Yu

    Why doesn’t he identify as asian?

    He has chinese or Japanese heritage.

  69. Turtle of WA

    Dead right. But lefties can’t tell the difference between a stroke victim and a person who is “like really deep and like spiritual”.

  74. Carpe Jugulum

    Stan Grant – getting more “aboriginal Orange” by the bottle full

  75. overburdened

    One of my former students was until retirement the most senior engineer on the DMR now RMS in our neck of the woods. His decision to retire was driven by the stupid inflicted upon him. He gave me a shining example of having to do ‘consultations’ with ‘elders’ regarding the footprint for a planned improvement of the major highway. He told me that the topic was persistently ‘compensation’ for proposed trespasses on ‘sacred sites’. He said that at one point he decided to cut to the chase and asked the mob where their sacred sites were. Their answer was, ‘where do you want to put the road?’.
    I rarely watch TV and this program would not inspire me to watch it more, and I understand the vibe of it and would like to thank all participants for suffer this shit for my reading pleasure. I am grateful.

  76. Sparkx

    Has Marcia been into the chateau cardboard?

  77. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    He has chinese or Japanese heritage.

    Aboriginal, Malaysian and Japanese heritage, but I’m going from memory.

  78. Turtle of WA

    There is no chance that Australia would ever have come about as a united political entity without settlers.

  79. Q&A have stuffed up or Dylan Voller did not receive his invite to represent Aboriginal youth.

    Putting Dylan onto a live panel discussion would be about Eleventy Million times worse than it was with our Yassmin.

    Dylan wouldn’t be able to hold it together for one whole hour.
    By the time the episode was halfway, about 3/4 of the tweets on the screen would be asking why the ABC bothered to get the little deadshit out of jail in the first place.

  80. Dave in Marybrook

  81. Baldrick

    What is this Macarena of which you speak?

    Dr G died because he refused treatment for diabetes and drank himself to death, not from discrimination.

  91. Carpe Jugulum

    Great a fauxboriginal from the snowy’s gets a gig.

    “Dr” yunipingu dies, because of lack of health care and constitutional reform.

    Not because of being on the piss in a shit hole drunks camp and not having dialysis.

  92. overburdened

  108. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Here we go with the poisoned waterholes bullshit

    Fvck me swinging, not this shyte again. So, in an age where most of the big runs were unfenced, and men may or may not be able to read, you poison a waterhole, and wipe out a bullock driver and his team, or someone driving sheep through the place? Most places would have had some form of poison around the place for baiting dingoes, but enough to poison a waterhole, and kill several adults?

  109. Baldrick

    WTF is the question again?

  110. Turtle of WA

    If only we’d spent money on educating these people to have productive skills, rather than teaching them to complain using incomprehensible post modern nonsense talk.

  111. Carpe Jugulum

    OK Carpe, Pearson seems to have suffered a stroke. Don’t think even he knows what he is waffling about.

    He is using a public speaking trick – that is a pause give a moment more meaning, but it should only be used occasionally, not constantly.

    When doing talks on things military a deep speaking tone in a slower measured tenor gives gravitas when talking about military battles.

    When talking about military success or any success a more upbeat tone of voice is used.

    Not an absolute but a good guide.

    Yes i do public speaking

  112. Sparkx

    so aboriginals are the only people allowed to make dot art it seems. Someone should have told Monet.

  113. Elle

    WTF is the question again?

    Something about the art, clan and the group and the nature of the sensitivity. We just have to ensure we work closely with art groups and sensitive people.

  114. Noel pearson is either the rain man or has had a brain bleed
    No normal human being speaks that way

    Yes.
    It should be kept in mind that Noel Pearson is a survivor of Lymphatic Cancer.

  115. Uh oh

    This is obviously not being held in an alcohol free zone.

    Question from a rainbow something or other.

  124. Baldrick

    What’s with the culturally appropriated braided hair?

  125. Turtle of WA

    In South West WA the aboriginal word for ‘whitey’ is ‘wadjula’.

    Activists can be seen openly using this term when addressing whites. Lefties believe them when they say it just means ‘white person’, but in truth it’s just as racist as several terms used to denote aborigines. And good luck to ’em. They won’t offend me. Just be consistent.

  126. Carpe Jugulum

    Next question – HOLY SHIT a fucking rasta rolled in.

    Oh Wait, it’s a plea for more money.

    How unexpected.

  129. Uh oh

    Absolutely sick of this. Always the same question; ‘what are you going to do for us’.

  130. Turtle of WA

    What’s with the culturally appropriated desk, chairs, clothes, cameras, lights…

  131. Baldrick

    Or instead of relying on the gubbermint, move, get a job and build or buy your own house.

  132. Snoopy

    I wonder what the overcrowding would look like, if the vacant, trashed housing, wasn’t.

  133. Sparkx

    Wow, you are so right Carpe. sTan is positively ((glowing)) in some camera angles.

  134. Turtle of WA

    … language, education, electronics, extended life expectancy, hats, shoes…

    Middle age brings one benefit. If you cope verbal abuse for refusing to “lend us fifty bucks until pension day” you just smile, in a sort of confused manner, use the phrase “Swart stuit mondstuck, ” smile again in a confused manner, move on, and hope you never encounter an Aborigine who speaks Afrikaans. For the peace of the town I live in, these days, I have yet to encounter such an individual, but I have been sprung by ex – pat South Africans..

  152. Oh come on

    Dear God why are you people suffering through this? I looked at the guest list – no fucking way! The constantly scowling Marcia Langton is enough to make me want to drink Harpic. Plus the pseudo-conservative snake in the grass, Pearson (bloody hell didn’t he mark the right out well! How many hundreds of millions has he managed to wring out of conservatives desperate to demonstrate they aren’t racist? And how much more is he going to shake is down for? FMD).

    And it’s moderated by Stan Grant! I’d rather spend the hour being waterboarded.

    You people are insane.
