    But in a ruling made last month, a Federal Court judge gave the 25-year-old South Sudanese man a reprieve by ruling that the Administrative Appeals Tribunal had not considered the impact a possible deportation would have on his younger siblings and his nieces and nephews, who are all children.

    Is this malice or stupidity? Does the judge hate old Australia and wish to destroy it, or is s/h/it just astonishingly stupid? The usual rule of not ascribing to malice what can be explained by stupidity seems to be getting stretched too far.

    Do Grigory’s socks ever talk to each other?

    No chance of an equivalent on the comedy circuit today.

    1. Who they think our betters would nominate as President
    Hmmm, who is indigenous, female, gay, and Fridgelamic?

    Anyone in Melbourne been killed by falling fridges recently?

    My money’s on the former.

    Thanks so much for that wonderful video you posted the other day – the jet in the Alps – that was just brilliant !

    Those spectators had a great view..

    You can get the f**k out too, Ahmed.

    “No, we seemingly don’t have an African gang problem,” community leader Ahmed Hassan said.

    “What we do have is young people who are disadvantaged and disengaged

    Dave Chappelle is the only one close.

    The Memsahibs parents, with the Memsahib in tow, emigrated from Holland, in the mid 1950’s. They decided that, since Australia was an English speaking country, hence forth only English would ever be spoken, even within the family home.
    Shame some recent “refugees” don’t show the same commitment?

  10. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    “What we do have is young people who are disadvantaged and disengaged

    Said young people would be “disadvantaged” and “disengaged” anywhere, even on the moon, FFS.

  11. Whalehunt Fun

    They would be “disadvantaged and disengaged” dangling from a meat hook in a pen full of hungry wild pigs, but importantly I would be safer and thus advantaged by them being there. And as a keen observer of such entertainments I would be highly engaged. So if ever the government and justice system fulfill their responsibilities they will get my vite.

  12. Oh come on

    No, we seemingly don’t have an African gang problem

    So that means we do have an African gang problem, correct? But one that can be hidden until it emerges at the most perilous time.

    All was seemingly peaceful. Then…sharknado.

  13. Mitch M.

    Dave Chappelle is the only one close.

    The Niggar Family.

    You are welcome, “Westie Woman”.

    Your’e a dickhead. Playing games.

  15. Oh come on

    What we do have is young people who are disadvantaged and disengaged

    WTF fine. Ok, let’s accept this is true –
    young disadvantaged and disengaged people are forming gangs and committing crime. I agree that it’s a good idea to do what we can to stop youngsters today from turning into tomorrow’s gangsters. Sure, let’s work on that. But let’s also do what we can to prevent people today from breaking the law, and punishing today’s lawbreakers.

    Enough excuses. Many, many people from all walks of life might (reasonably or unreasonably) consider themselves “disadvantaged and disengaged” from society, yet have not gone on to become criminals.

  16. Three hours, without a comment on the Cat?

    Thanks Tom

    My preference is for the stuffed body of Phar Lap to become the eternal president of Australia, wheeled out to add a dignified air to all our craven capitulation signing ceremonies.

    Favourite comment from overnight.
    Well done John C.

  19. feelthebern

    I saw a clip of Bill Kristol overnight.
    He was a coherent nutter before.
    Since Trump won he has really lost it.
    Sad.

    Try Russel Peters.

    My preference is for the stuffed body of Phar Lap to become the eternal president of Australia, wheeled out to add a dignified air to all our craven capitulation signing ceremonies.

    Since this seems a popular choice, I would improve it by stuffing Phar Lap up Maocolm’s backside* during all our craven capitulation signing ceremonies. Both can share the honor.

    *This position can be reversed if Maocolm’s face is likely to offend the invited guests.

    Turnbull trying to bring in a Carbon tax with businesses able to buy permits from overseas. Rorted scheme before the Nigerians will be out selling trees again.

    Huh? I enjoyed the low flying jet too.

    This thread will get to 3000 shortly. Is that a record?

  25. ME262;

    You would have thought that they might have scheduled the works the other way around given that there would be many going off on holiday after Christmas ( like us) and then returning again to start work next week.
    VicRoads have really done thier best to inconvenience people.
    Is it just me, or am I missing some warped logic here?

    The logic is Bureaucratic Arrogance.
    They can stuff you around whenever they feel like it, and they feel like it all the time.

    More “biting the hand that feeds them”, disgusting, vile youth gangs at play. It’s all about “look at moi”, so this sez.
    (But reading Tim Blair’s latest piece, in Australia it’s actually about ‘skippy hunting” … again.)

    I reckon the car burning gangs are secretly sponsored by Renault & Peugeot/Citroen.

    Jordan Peterson is doing a world tour this year to include Melbourne.
    Any Melbourne cats interested in going as a group?

    Count me in.
