  1. Smaller waists. It is the 50’s.

    Good point. The weight loss required by actors (to appear genuine) would be a good start. Restrict their calories, and a bit more exercise too, a rolling pin was considered a “labour saving device” in those days.

    I don’t watch the show much, but tell me, do the actors sit around bitching about how horrible life in the 1950’s is? (we’re always told how awful & boring the 50’s were, by the ABC)

    Some examples of plausible scripts:

    Dr Blake: “Oh my god! Not another roast + 2 veg dinner. Boring British food, just the same as every other night. When will this cultural cringe end? Life is so boring where there is only wholesome food to eat – what this country needs is immigration from Lebanon, so I can have kebabs with bok choy”

    Dr Blake: “Well that’s the end of the workday, now I’m off for another boring night of reading a Dickens novel by lamplight with a cup of Horlicks by my side – oh how I wish someone would invent an electronic entertainment device so I may enjoy uplifting broadcasts directly into my lounge room”

    Well, to the AMA: No, “because fuck you, that’s why.”

    Bruce, at least good old gallant Sir Thwackalot has revealed to us all what he and all leftards want. Monty wants an armed socialist uprising to over throw the state so people he does not like can be ‘dealt with’ in standard socialist fashion, and he’s very happy to have an active socialist terrorism phase first.

    Nice of him to tell us what he wants.

    Believe we should be forming identity and affinity groups to counter this – it’s what they do, so we should too.

    If this propaganda story goes well for The Age, next month there will be a “facebook post” about two gay “dads” who were abused in a mothers room.

    Then if that goes well a few months later a “story” about a “transman” who was “abused” in a mothers room.

    Then if that goes well we’ll be back to were they started, trannies in womens changerooms. Except this time they’ll have built a solid foundation to rest it on.

    And if you do start shooting, you lose all credibility as you would then be highly violent criminals.

    Trouble with that argument is that you will be dead.

    So now you want leftists to start committing terrorist acts, gallant Sir Thwackalot? Again, the only one talking about that is you.

    You were the one who brought up your muscular Christians holding guns. You say “now what” to the left as if we are supposed to react to you, but what if we ignore you as we assume you aren’t going to shoot anyone with those guns? Do you intend to prove us wrong?

    You would like the left to get scared by your gun fondling, but we really aren’t. Until you actually start shooting us, we will continue to act as if you are bluffing. And if you do start shooting, you lose all credibility as you would then be highly violent criminals.

    And if you want to come back with “but you want Nazis punched” don’t bother, it isn’t in the same league.

    Massive pigsqueal of rage from gallant Sir Thwackalot: “How DARE you use our tactics and form your own identity groups!!??!!!

    Suck it, commie-boy. “Because fuck you, that’s why”

  6. You would like the left to get scared by your gun fondling, but we really aren’t. Until you actually start shooting us, we will continue to act as if you are bluffing. And if you do start shooting, you lose all credibility as you would then be highly violent criminals.

    News bulletin feller:
    Left: Talk, known for “jaw-jaw”, and for doing no work.
    Right: Action, known for “war-war”, and for doing something.
    (Spot the difference?)

    If the shootin’ starts, loss of credibility won’t be on the radar. Loss of life will be.
    Which of those two do you think will apply to the unarmed?

  7. LOL Marcus, you have been reduced to grunts. As befits your military station.

    Twostix, you may be interested in my update on the Gerry Brown decision to weaponise HIV.
    Big surprise.

    1/4 of homos in San Francisco have AIDS?

    In 2017?

    On Tuesday, Campos proposed that The City provide Truvada free of charge to all San Franciscans who request it, regardless of their respective incomes.

    Just like normal people.

  11. Pedro the Ignorant

    So the AMA wants all legal guns stored in a central location do they?

    What a magnificent idea.

    Barry’s Gunshop in Beckenham, a suburb of Perth, is more secure than the gold storage vaults at the Reserve Bank but still got robbed of $650,000 worth of rifles and handguns by a team of highly professional burglars in May this year.

    Why on Earth did the gun store have all those guns on the premises, you ask?

    The guns were about 90% privately owned and paid for, but unable to be taken off Barry’s premises because WA Police Firearms had not completed all the mandatory pistol licence paperwork.

    Now some over educated fool wants every firearm in a centralised location to assist the professional gun thieves relieve the rightful owners of the burden of owning them.

    The mind boggles.

    What we learned from homo Californian Senator Wiener (you cannot make this stuff up), is that in order for homos to function as humans, apparently they need a vast pharmacutical complex to provide them with chemical cocktails given to them for free by the taxpaying public so they can do their thing of forcing their cock into other mens arses, doing so without dying from a disease that is almost designed to only infect people who do that to many people.

    Then when they do contract AIDS as, apparently a full one quarter of homos in SF, they have an absolute right to spread their death disease to anyone they like.

  16. “Enact our policies or we will shoot you”, the new slogan for the Christianists.

    Well it didn’t seem right to the child.
    So straightway the brave little feller,
    Not showin’ a morsel of fear,
    Took ‘is stick with the ‘orse’s ‘ead ‘andle
    And pushed it in Wallace’s ear.
    You could see that the lion didn’t like it,
    For givin’ a kind of a roll,
    ‘E pulled Albert inside the cage with ‘im
    And swallered the little lad ‘ole!
    Now Pa, ‘oo ‘ad seen the occurrence,
    And didn’t know what to do next,
    Said, “Mother, yon lion’s ate Albert!”

    Blood transfusions, man. It’s always about blood transfusion.

    If you test all blood anyway, why aren’t some people allowed to donate?

    Unfortunately, even the most sophisticated tests aren’t perfect. For many infections, there’s a period after someone is infected when the disease won’t show up in testing yet – this is called the ‘window period’.

    “PReP” foils blood tests:

    considering the increasing use of PrEP we feel it is prudent for those interpreting HIV donor screening test results to consider the potential for PrEP interference.

    Yep, this AMA idiot wants every legal gun confiscated. Every fact contradicts the idiot’s position: gun ownership has increased since 2001 while every type of gun crime has fallen. Gun crime has concentrated in the Western suburbs of Sydney and the NE of Melbourne, suburbs with high densities of muslims. Islam however and illegal weapons are too politically incorrect for idiots so they go for the easy target. There’s no debating with them.

  30. Blood transfusions, man. It’s always about blood transfusion.

    Not buying it, Twostix. Once universal testing for donated blood was introduced here in Oz in the 90’s, AIDS transfer became pretty-much limited to the sharing of needles, and unprotected anal sex.

    Whether the widespread use of PrEP changes that, is yet to be seen, and we can learn from the Californian “experiment”, before we do anything rash here.

    Prenatal Fluoride Exposure and Cognitive Outcomes in Children at 4 and 6–12 Years of Age in Mexico

    BACKGROUND:
    Some evidence suggests that fluoride may be neurotoxic to children. Few of the epidemiologic studies have been longitudinal, had individual measures of fluoride exposure, addressed the impact of prenatal exposures or involved more than 100 participants.
    OBJECTIVE:
    Our aim was to estimate the association of prenatal exposure to fluoride with offspring neurocognitive development.
    METHODS:
    We studied participants from the Early Life Exposures in Mexico to Environmental Toxicants (ELEMENT) project. An ion-selective electrode technique was used to measure fluoride in archived urine samples taken from mothers during pregnancy and from their children when 6–12 y old, adjusted for urinary creatinine and specific gravity, respectively. Child intelligence was measured by the General Cognitive Index (GCI) of the McCarthy Scales of Children’s Abilities at age 4 and full scale intelligence quotient (IQ) from the Wechsler Abbreviated Scale of Intelligence (WASI) at age 6–12.
    RESULTS:
    We had complete data on 299 mother–child pairs, of whom 287 and 211 had data for the GCI and IQ analyses, respectively. Mean (SD) values for urinary fluoride in all of the mothers (n=299) and children with available urine samples (n=211) were 0.90 (0.35) mg/L and 0.82 (0.38) mg/L, respectively. In multivariate models we found that an increase in maternal urine fluoride of 0.5mg/L (approximately the IQR) predicted 3.15 (95% CI: −5.42, −0.87) and 2.50 (95% CI −4.12, −0.59) lower offspring GCI and IQ scores, respectively.
    CONCLUSIONS:
    In this study, higher prenatal fluoride exposure, in the general range of exposures reported for other general population samples of pregnant women and nonpregnant adults, was associated with lower scores on tests of cognitive function in the offspring at age 4 and 6–12 y. https://doi.org/10.1289/EHP655

    Apologies if someone has already posted this, but U.S. Army sergeant and accused deserter (during active duty in Afghanistan) Bowe Bergdahl’s sentencing is scheduled to begin on the 23rd of October, according to The Washington Free Beacon which Rafe linked to in his most recent Roundup.

    The judgement (he is expected to plead guilty, according to the aforementioned) and sentence will be interesting. One wonders if Trump’s comments will be used in the mitigation of his sentence, and if so, how the anxiety-porn industry will froth and bubble, being patriotic supporters of the military and all that.

  44. twostix

    OCO the average pom, even tory retards, ‘loathe’ Trump like the average Australian “Liberal” does.

    So may going all in on Trump shouldn’t have hurt her too much with them and should have endeared her to the cockroaches.

    Police have released a 47-year-old man arrested on suspicion of dangerous driving after a car crash outside London’s Natural History Museum injured 11 people.

    Police said on Sunday the man was released “under investigation.” He has not been charged or identified.

    The crash on Saturday afternoon on Exhibition Road in London’s busy museum district was initially feared to be a possible terrorist attack.

    It seemed to resemble incidents earlier this year when extremists in vehicles attacked pedestrians on Westminster Bridge and on London Bridge.

    Police said after several hours of urgent investigation that it was a road traffic collision not related to terrorism.

    Detective Constable Darren Case said: “Because of where this collision occurred and the number of pedestrians involved, I fully appreciate the concern and alarm this incident caused.

    Inquiries have established that this incident is not terrorist related and I’d like to thank those who came to assist the injured.”

    UK: Viewers of “far-right propaganda” to get 15 years in prison via Geller Report – British …

    British Home Secretary recently announced that people who view “jihadi websites” could face up to fifteen years in prison. But she didn’t stop there. Rudd said: “I want to make sure those who view despicable terrorist content online, including jihadi websites, far-right propaganda and bomb-making instructions, face the full force of the law. There is currently a gap in the law around material [that] is viewed or streamed from the internet without being permanently downloaded.”

    “Far-right propaganda.” What does she mean by that? The answer to that question is, unfortunately, quite clear.

    British authorities like to pretend that there is equal terror threat coming from both jihadis and “far-right extremists.” That leads to a diversion of resources that could be used to fight jihadis, and the persecution of innocent people, such as the politician Paul Weston, who was arrested for publicly reading Winston Churchill’s remarks about Islam.

    The really insidious aspect of this, however, is that for years, Leftist and Islamic supremacist spokesmen have been claiming that any opposition to jihad terror that involved honest discussion of its motivating ideology was “far-right propaganda.” In light of that, what Amber Rudd is essentially saying here is that if you read jihadi websites or counter-jihad websites, you could face fifteen years in prison.

    For years British authorities have been harassing and persecuting British citizens who have called attention to the nature and magnitude of the jihad threat. Nor do they want to hear about it from foreigners, either: Pamela Geller is banned from entering Britain for correctly noting that al-Qaeda works from Islamic teachings, and that antisemitism is deeply embedded within Islam. I am banned from the country for correctly noting that Islam has doctrines calling for violence against non-Muslims.

    Yet while standing strong and proud against foes of jihad terror, Britain has a steadily lengthening record of admitting jihad preachers without a moment of hesitation.

    Syed Muzaffar Shah Qadri’s preaching of hatred and jihad violence was so hardline that he was banned from preaching in Pakistan, but the UK Home Office welcomed him into Britain.

    The UK Home Office recently admitted Shaykh Hamza Sodagar into the country, despite the fact that he has said: “If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One – the easiest one maybe – chop their head off, that’s the easiest. Second – burn them to death. Third – throw ’em off a cliff. Fourth – tear down a wall on them so they die under that. Fifth – a combination of the above.”

    May’s government also admitted two jihad preachers who had praised the murderer of a foe of Pakistan’s blasphemy laws. One of them was welcomed by the Archbishop of Canterbury.

    A Muslim preacher from South Africa who likened J#ws to fleas had no problem getting into the country and even spoke in a government building.

    Meanwhile, the UK banned three bishops from areas of Iraq and Syria where Christians are persecuted from entering the country.

    400 Islamic State jihadis have returned to UK, only 54 have been prosecuted.

    Amber Rudd’s threat of fifteen years prison for reading “far-right propaganda” on line is a warning to Britons that the British government’s ridiculous and suicidal policies of appeasement and accommodation of jihad preachers, and persecution of foes of jihad, is going to continue. The British government claims to want to fight against jihad terror, but it is most energetic in fighting against those who are actually fighting against jihad terror.

    What will be the end result? Well, you get what you pay for. If Britain allows jihad preachers to operate freely in Britain, it will get more jihad. That will make Britain even more squalid, dirty and dangerous than it is today. Meanwhile, by stigmatizing and demonizing foes of jihad terror, and treating them as if they were criminals, British authorities, most notably Theresa May and Amber Rudd, are making sure that fewer and fewer of their people will dare to stand up to jihad, Sharia and Islamization.

    The new conquerors of Britain will not thank these fools for all the favors they have done for them. On the contrary: they will be pitiless.

    The population ponzi scheme keeps silent on how many people a year move in now.

    Full immigration, visa holders, students, all up a million people a year come to live for a while in Australia, a third to a half of them in Sydney.

    To big crony socialism, people are simply money, clients that do not have to be won through competition, and the infrastructure and welfare costs are socialised to the taxpayer.

    To revolutionary socialism, mass immigration is a change agent that enables the revolutionary cultural suicide of obsolete racist colonial settler outpost Australia.

    I totally agree with MV that they know exactly what they are doing.

    It is why I was so astonished to see Nigel Farage pull out immediately after the Brexit vote was won.

    Now, as I thought all along, it isn’t going to happen.
    Of course it isn’t going to happen now.
    They are about to outlaw the viewing of political sites they deem to be extreme.
    And protesting against being blown up is extreme according to the government.

    Cultural Marxism and it’s march through the institutions only has to get to a certain point, then it is too late to fix without bloodshed.
    And we are no different here.
    Allowing Safe schools to abuse children is not primarily stupid, it is primarily evil.

    These politicians, who can stop this, but don’t, who sell themselves to the U.N. and China, and don’t give a rat’s arse about this country or it’s children are primarily evil and need to be treated as such.
    That’s basic humanity missing in action.

    Standards have little to do with it – I’ve seen too many relationships where a standard is ignored and the task becomes a power issue.
    If you want to see what I mean, when there’s a few mates around having a drink, and the conversation turns to things domestic, just mention the words “The Rules” and see the reaction.

    Mrs Struth was working 40 hours a week and making about half I was, so she expected to do it in my absence.
    She mowed lawns, painted things and kept the house and grounds immaculate, and cooked food for me to take away as well.
    Nowadays she works more hours than me and I do most the housework, however she has a psychological problem about me being in her kitchen, that I have learned to live with, that disappears entirely when it comes to doing the dishes.
    I don’t cook much, but it bores me anyway, unless it’s outside in the fire pit.

    Point being is that it’s teamwork.
    I have always expected women to pull their weight.

  135. Tom

    Paywallian:

    Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg has all but ruled out a clean energy target, saying the transition to lower greenhouse gas emissions cannot come at the expense of the reliability and affordability of our electricity system.

    Mr Frydenberg told the National Energy Summit in Sydney that emissions in the electricity sector had fallen over the last two quarters as a consequence of the closure of coal-fired power stations and flatlining demand, but said this could not continue if it made power less reliable or affordable.

    “As Minister for both Energy and Environment, the first time these responsibilities have been brought together, I am acutely aware of this delicate balance,” Mr Frydenberg said.

    “Should reliability and affordability be compromised, public support for tackling climate change will quickly diminish and previous gains will be lost. This is in nobody’s interest.”

    Mr Frydenberg said the cost of wind-powered generation had more than halved in seven years, with similar reductions in solar PV technology.

    “It is against this backdrop of a declining cost curve for renewables and storage, greater efficiencies that can be found in thermal generation and the need for sufficient dispatchable power in the system that we are considering the Finkel Review’s 50th recommendation to which we’ll respond before the end of the year,” he said, referencing the clean energy target.

    “It is important to not lose sight of the fact that we accepted and are now implementing 49 out of the 50 Finkel recommendations through the COAG Energy Council.

    “Many of the recommendations will have a profound impact, with new requirements around notice of closure, generator reliability and security being long overdue.”

    But Mr Frydenberg said that a premature reliance on wind and solar was making supply and demand harder to predict and increasing prices.

    “This is because in an energy only market, large amounts of wind and solar produce low

    wholesale prices when they are running, but very high prices when they are not,” he said.

    “This volatility creates an uncertain investment climate and makes it more difficult for synchronous generators to recover their fixed costs and remain commercially viable.

    “As these generators are pushed out, liquidity in the contract market is reduced, not only because there are fewer participants who can provide firm hedging, but also because new entrants are deterred by the greater volatility risk.

    “To take this point to the extreme, the Grattan Institute has pointed out that, for a system with 100 per cent renewables, the wholesale price cap would need to lift more than fivefold to between $60,000 and $80,000 to ensure a sufficient revenue stream.

    “No jurisdiction could be expected to embrace such extremes and in many other countries they have not.”

    Mr Frydenberg urged state and territory governments to support a national approach.

    “It’s high time that the states and territories accepted that by going it alone and frustrating a truly national approach, they are driving prices higher, reliability lower and making the smooth transition to a lower emissions future that much more difficult,” he said.

    “By sanctioning the uncompetitive bidding practices of government-owned generators or appeals under the Merits Review process for networks, state governments have prioritised profits over lower energy prices.

    “Indeed in Queensland over the last few months, the wholesale electricity prices have gone down by 25 per cent, following a belated state ministerial direction.

    “And in the ACT and New South Wales had the Limited Merits Review process been abolished sooner, citizens of those jurisdictions would have had power bill savings of more than $5 billion.”

    Mr Frydenberg said states and territories had also increased gas prices through their refusal to lift moratoria on coal seam gas.

    He also singled out the Renewable Energy Target as a policy which was “far from perfect”, despite attracting bipartisan support.

    “This policy did not anticipate or adequately deal with the situation where there would be a particularly high penetration of renewable in a single region, namely South Australia, where storage and stability services would be at a premium,” he said.

    “While renewable energy advocates quickly seek to justify their subsidies by pointing to emissions as a costly externality it is only fair to point out that renewables without storage are also a costly burden,” he said.

    “The best illustration is the experience of South Australia, where the spot price increased by 84 per cent between 2015-16 and 2016-17, following the closure of the Northern coal-fired power station last May and the rising cost of gas-fired generation.

    “With wind on any given day providing between zero and 100 per cent plus of the state’s needs and only limited and more expensive gas left to balance the variability, the markets quickly priced in this risk.”

    Mr Frydenberg also indicated he was concerned about market concentration in the wholesale electricity market, as highlighted in a recent ACCC report.

    “In each region of the National Energy Market, the two or three biggest generators between them control more than 70 per cent of capacity and dispatched energy,” he said.

    “This has been increasing over time. As an illustration, the big three, AGL, EnergyAustralia and Origin between them in 2009 had 15 per cent of generation capacity in the NEM. Today, it’s nearly 50 per cent.

    “This concentration can affect bidding behaviour as the companies know that their market dominance guarantees dispatch regardless of price.

    “This is why I have asked the Australian Energy Regulator to investigate bidding practices by generators with a particular focus on New South Wales. I look forward to receiving their initial findings in November.

    “While this type of behaviour may technically be within the NEM rules, it is not in the long term interests of consumers. Governments will need to consider what rule changes may be required.”

    Mr Frydenberg said the key to guaranteeing lower prices and better reliability was having an effective regulatory framework with a real emphasis on transparency and competition.

    He said the declining cost of new technology would play an increasing role in the energy sector.

    “Just as the mobile phone disrupted the landline and the digital camera superseded film, the energy market is being shaped by the so-called internet-of-things; behind-the-meter technology such as solar PV and storage; demand-side responses; and increasingly cost effective utility scale renewable generation,” he said.

    Chief Scientist Alan Finkel said there was still a need for a long term target, and a mechanism to reach it.

    “The focus should be on the end point of the atmospheric emissions,” Dr Finkel told the summit.

    “We looked at the Emissions Intensity Scheme, Clean Energy Target, regulated closure.

    “For a variety of reasons, we felt the Clean Energy Target was a little bit better than those others but the critical thing is not that it is a Clean Energy Target per se but that there is a mechanism that is a tool that enables the operators to ensure that the atmospheric emissions trajectory is delivered.”

    The government has accepted 49 of the 50 recommendations of Chief Scientist Alan Finkel’s review of the National Electricity Market. However the recommendation for a clean energy target – which would drive investment in renewables and bring down emissions, and which the government did not accept – has divided the Coalition, preventing a decision on its future for four months.

    I assume ‘investment’ is code for taxpayer’s hard earned?

    For any brave souls that have Sunrise on in the mornings, did you see Milo own Kochie?

    But the best was the comeback to the weekend shiela who complained that she saw him “give exactly the same answers to another interview”, to which he responded “well, perhaps you should ask some different questions, darling”.

    Kochi got the last word in after the interview was ended, proving he was out of his depth in the interview. Comedy gold.

    Took a look on youtube.

    Milo beclowned the pair of dickheads.

    Koch-head’s snide remark at the end said a lot more about him than it did Milo.

    Rooftop stand-off after woman’s body found in Chatswood alley
    Ashleigh Gleeson, The Daily Telegraph
    13 minutes ago
    POLICE are negotiating with a man on the roof of an apartment block close to where a woman’s body was found in an alleyway on Sydney’s north shore.
    He is located above the roof of a communal gym at the building near Chatswood train station.

    A pedestrian made the grisly discovery in the car park below where the man is currently sitting.

    It is believed she fell from the building.

    “As Minister for both Energy and Environment, the first time these responsibilities have been brought together, I am acutely aware of this delicate balance,” Mr Frydenberg said.

    It just struck me the other day that this is a huge part of the reason why we can’t come up with a coherent energy policy. Poor old Josh Frydenberg has been given a terrible kicking of late, but if you think about it, he’s been given an impossible task, having to figure out how to come up with a cheap and reliable energy system that also takes into account the environmental impact of these projects. It’s a little like making the Trade Minister the minister for local manufacturing at the same time – it just doesn’t work.

    First move Turnbull should make when he reshuffles his cabinet (other than dumping Brandis) is split those porfolios up again – they were kept apart for a reason.

    Benji, why?

  151. Kochie’s intro is a complete disgrace. But it is true, Milo wiped the floor with them and didn’t even break into a sweat which is all you need to know about most Australian talking heads. It was also instructive that Kochie retreated for most of the conversation and made his gratuitous and cowardly remarks in the outro when Milo couldn’t reply. Of course, it’s beyond shameful that conservatives are not beating these clowns into a pulp on a daily basis.

  160. Point being is that it’s teamwork.
    I have always expected women to pull their weight.
    Before I met Mrs Struth, I never found one worth working for, and out of all my male friends only about two have wives worth their effort.
    I feel very sorry for young blokes these days.

    In today’s upside-downy world, modern women don’t pull their weight, they just put it on and act like walking sperm banks. There’s an entire generation of women out there who are reaching their 40’s and it’s just dawned on them that they’re fucked. Childless, or divorced, no man in their lives, well past their sell by date and realising they are going to grow old and die alone. By rights they should direct their anger at the leftarded Feminazis and other assorted Marxist agitprop they were fed. The vicious, envious pigs like Clem and Caro who have succeeded in making a whole bunch of women as miserable and lonely as them (which was their intention all along).
    Instead, out of desperation, they will seek solace in the State or maybe even shack up with a Jihadi 20 years their junior as is increasingly happening in Europe.
    Fall for Socialism and you end up in a black body bag one way or another.

    “As Minister for both Energy and Environment, the first time these responsibilities have been brought together, I am acutely aware of this delicate balance,” Mr Frydenberg said.

    Energy should trump the environment every fucking time.

    We can live with electricity and everything it brings, or we can wander naked through the bush like Aborigines did a couple of hundred years ago.

    Then the ‘environment’ won’t seem such a romantic ideal.

    Balders, it’s also a pisser that “athletes” are telling people not to be stupid. Am fairly sure they weren’t given a guernsey due to their worldly wisdom.

    Frankly, anyone in their early 20s or younger shouldn’t be schooling anyone older about anything. Your opinion is worthless while your perspective is based on how much you know about everything, rather than how little you know. So it does grate a bit when some cocksure brat barely out of his teens tells me not to be stupid and vote yes.

    Listen up, kiddo. You know nothing, just like the rest of us when we were your age. You don’t even realise how ridiculous you look on your soapbox, carrying on with your ignorant hectoring and hashtag virtue-signalling. The only valid reason I can think of why you ought to have been permitted to cast a ballot – any ballot, not just this SSM opinion poll – when you turned 18 is because 18’s the age you are eligible to fight and die for the country. That’s it. Certainly not because it’s the age when you might reasonably be expected to make a wise, well-considered decision regarding almost anything. Hell, if that was the sole criterion for voting eligibility, you wouldn’t get to vote until at least your late 20s. So if you must make your opinions known to the rest of the world, do so respectfully, as they really don’t carry any weight until you’ve been around long enough to absorb a few of life’s lessons.
