    So which moral degenerate is going to lead the Nats?

    Like going to Brothels on union member’s money?

    Am I supposed to like people because they are gay Monst?

    There are some gays I can’t stand, you’re one of them.
    At least you will be next time JC buys you a meal.
    He didn’t use the term “bitch” did he?
    What about “daddy”?

  2. notafan

    Barnaby underestimated the relentless fury of the press and Twitter/Social media bugmen.

    None of whom have a moral compass but now pretend adultery is the one unforgivable sin.

    None of the jobs/travel! claims gave had any substance.

    Had to laugh about the horror of only one Facebook post a day, other media advisors must now establish a productivity benchmark

    He is on the backbench, for now.

    RHD in aboriginal communities is easily cured without spending a cent.
    Make them townships with councils that apply the same iron fist as other municipalities regards filth on premises and tie welfare to hygiene .
    No washadum no gettadacheque.
    But no, we’ll spend billions, because this” make work scheme” for abo health departments relies on first doing all they can to make aboriginals sick through welfare and cultural Marxism in the first place.
    Pure evil.

    Now can we get back to the aliens sitting in our parliament.

    They’re all alien, but you know what I mean.

    ‘Examples include improved housing and reduced overcrowding’

    However it’s not what Turnbull and Scullion envisage –

    ‘Withdrawal of funding by the Commonwealth, for the National Partnership on Remote Housing (NPRH) (a ten-year partnership to build and refurbish housing in some of the most disadvantaged communities across Australia) will have major detrimental consequences to the economic, social welfare, education, and health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in these communities.’

    How old are you Testicles?
    You must be fucking young if you think for the last 50 years they haven’t been building and then rebuilding aboriginal housing after they’ve demolished them for fire wood and general violence, etc and all on some fucking scheme or another called 10 year plans. It’s cost billions.

    What is going on? The head prefect actually went to lunch with the little swine; WTF is that?

  21. Knuckle Dragger

    Then either the Pilbara people can pay for it themselves, or learn some basic maintenance. Stories abound of plumbers being sent on 800km round trips to replace a washer.

    Some funding would be ok. Build the houses, fine. Normal wear and tear, fine. Deliberately destroyed and/or set on fire because they’re pissed or due to tribal shit and then demanding brand new houses, absolutely not. If the money runs out during the relevant fiscal period, then it’s stiff shit like the rest of us.

    A bit of personal responsibility, please. If I was MT or Scullion I’d be sick of permanently setting a significant part of my budget on fire too. As I said before, the local Big Men could very well help this situation, but they don’t because it’s not in their interest to do so.

    Testes, you’re drawing attention to a problem these people have brought squarely upon themselves.

  22. JC

    … and normal transmission resumes.
    (I would of been truly grateful. You know I would).

    Leigh, I told you a few times you were welcome to come. You know that, but I wasn’t going to buy you lunch.

    As fate would have it. I went to my tailor (alterations dude) today and Harry wasn’t there. harry was one of the nicest dudes you could ever meet. I hooked up with him after my ma couldn’t do my alterations anymore and found him to be excellent too.

    Harry passed away from pancreatic cancer just before Xmas – four months after diagnosis. So sad.

    Harry worked six days a week.

    This is how unfair God is at times. Harry gets diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and dies 4 months later. Ginsberg gets the same disease, is still going strong a year later – wrecking the US legal system – and I lose a bet to Monster. If someone can tell me they’ve worked out the mind of God I’m all ears.

  23. Elizabeth (Lizzie) Beare

    Lizzie B, have you come across the charming suggestion that the Isle of Thanet is named after the goddess Tanit? By Phoenician traders of course.

    No, haven’t heard that one. Wouldn’t surprise me.

    According to documentation provided at the Great Orme mines in Llandudno, Wales, the bronze age itself was mostly underwritten by the stunning amount of copper traded from the nine level mines of Great Orme, some of these so narrow they were worked by children. Added to Cornish tin, Phoenician and Mycenean traders had every reason to head to Britain for supplies.

    There are Mycenean mazes carved into rock near Tintagel in Cornwall, and also elsewhere up the coast including on a headland near Lancaster, mostly overgrown and forgotten. They have a special name which I can’t remember but I have it written down somewhere. With such trade came new gods and goddesses to add to some ancient ones already there.

  33. Knuckle Dragger

    Just put a garbage bag in the bin out the front. As I did so, I noted a distinct swishing sound.

    Then hove into view a pair of hippopotami loosely disguised as ‘women’, clad in active wear (hence the swishing) and each walking a clearly embarrassed dog. Most of the visible skin was covered in unidentifiable tattoos, and as they walked past a loud conversation ensued around whether one of them should get back with her ex, as apparently ‘he’d have me back in a fvckin’ heartbeat the xunt’.

    Continuing this line of discussion, they slowly sailed away, presumably to the swamp from which they came.

    I went back inside and bolted the door.

    I am doomed.

One day he thrashed them both for not running up his horses early—gave them an awful belting. Next day the horses were late again. He started to thrash the boys for it, and they turned on him with nulla-nullahs. The stockman drew his revolver and shot one boy. The other got away.

    It turns out Ruth Bader Ginsberg, everyone’s favorite Supreme Court Justice, goes just as hard in the gym as she goes on the bench, confirming her status as the ultimate badass. In fact, Ruth goes so hard that a “young and reasonably fit” reporter from Politico could barely keep up when he tried her workout.

    ‘I’ve humiliated myself’: Top cop admits making crude online comments

    The boss of Victoria Police’s own Professional Standards Command has admitted to creating a fake online profile to make “crude, coarse and inappropriate” comments about former police chiefs and an ex-police union boss.

    (And I was not looking at The Age website – came off SMH)

    This prick is the Deputy Commissioner of Ethical Standards at VicPol. He adopts a pseudonym on Facebook and abuses and defames conservatives, ex Commissioner Kel Glare and former Police Association head Paul Mullet.
    Not stood down.
    Not fired.
    Remember, this xunt was part of Christine “I had to eat” Nixon’s cabal who fired coppers from Sunshine for producing “mudfish” stubby holders ten years ago to celebrate the African crims on their patch.
    Oh, and he is getting kudos now for “coming clean”.
    Yeah right.
    It got referred to IBAC and they were going to tumble him in five minutes flat.

    It was old crones, back in the day…

    Nothing to do with old crones. In medieval times, every competent housewife, of a certain class that is, had a still room in which she made salves and potions from oils and other things ‘distilled’ from herbs and flowers. I am just contemplating entering into an age-old tradition, not an old-age tradition. 🙂

    What a pleasant summer evening it is here in Sydney. Gentle noises of frogs from a watered garden, and the new call bell is now ringing ‘Ode to Joy’, our signature tune. It must be the second pizza delivery, for the grown ups. Our new entry system is a technological wonder; video on demand, and I can set it to ring out the bells, or auld lang sine, or quite a few variants of Chopin and other classical faves, or a chirpy little tweety bird, or even Jingle Bells or Happy Birthday. A toon for every occasion expected.

    Major biblical discovery: Archaeologists may have found the Prophet Isaiah’s ‘signature’

    It doesn’t bother me if the seal is Isaiah-the-prophet’s of some other Isaiah from the same time. But if you read Isaiah-the-book you’ll see how Jesus fulfils the prophecy. Yet the Dead Sea scrolls contain a complete copy of Isaiah which was carbon dated to a couple hundred years before Christ.

    Peter C,

    I can highly recommend the Quiet Man on the corner of Racecourse Road and Wellington Street.

    Used to be the venue of choice when I worked in that patch. An Irish joint, but not over the top – a few decent fillies for your visual pleasure can be found as well.

    We are heading down that way after work tomorrow so we might just do that. Thanks for the tip. The Malay joint from last night is definitely getting another visit, and I’d go back to the Somalian joint for their lamb again too!

    Italian Town ‘Taken Over’ By Nigerian Migrant Gangs

    The largely abandoned former seaside resort town of Castel Volturno north of Naples has been taken over by Nigerian gangs who run drug and prostitution rings.
    The town has a total population of around 30,000 people, of which an estimated 20,000 are migrants, French news magazine L’Obs reports.

    Many of the Nigerian migrant women who walk the streets as prostitutes are underage, offering sexual favours for as little as 5 to 15 euros along the Via Domitiana by the sea.

    The rampant petty crime and violence in the city has led to journalists wanting to write about the town requiring police escorts for their own safety.

    The current Italian government, which is seeking re-election on March 4th, has signed a 21-million euro package to increase security in towns like Castel Volturno and offer integration programmes for migrants.

    Former Brisbane Freemason Glenn Langford apologises after being found naked in broken pipe organ, surrounded by cheeseburger

    Simon White

    A FORMER Brisbane Freemason has apologised after allegedly being found naked inside a damaged historic pipe organ, surrounded by the remnants of a cheeseburger, in the the city’s Masonic Memorial Centre.

    Glenn Langford allegedly broke into the heritage-listed building and flooded it on Wednesday night and was found alongside the burger, a remote-controlled police car and a toy gun.

    He told 7 News he was sorry for any damage he had caused – to the pipe organ and the reputation of the Freemasons.

    The Freemasons have since told 7 News that Mr Langford is no longer a member.

    “Things just got a little bit loose – I can’t explain it at the moment,” Mr Langford said.

    “I apologise to all the righteous Freemasons everywhere. I did have a lot of cheeseburgers to give to the homeless.

    “I was out of it. I’m going to see a shrink and I won’t drink. But I might try to give out some more cheeseburgers to the homeless.”

    65 sec Video
    While celebrating Black History Month at the Thompson Center, Hyatt Hotels executive Tyronne Stoudemire asked for Governor Rauner’s help while he used a glass of chocolate milk to demonstrate a lesson on corporate diversity.

    Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner (Republican) cares about diversity. In fact, he cares about it so much that he drank your mom’s favorite chocolate milk concoction at a corporate event honoring Black History Month.

    The supposed-metaphor happened after Hyatt Hotels’ vice president and global chief diversity officer Tyronne Stoudemire presented a bottle of Hershey’s chocolate syrup and said that it represents “diversity” through “women, people of color, people with disabilities, the aging population, and generation X, Y, and Z.” Standing on stage right next to him, Gov. Rauner held a glass of milk as Stoudemire poured chocolate syrup right into it.

    “It’s not that organizations are not diverse, but when you look at most organizations, diversity sits, what? At the bottom of the organization,” Stoudemire said, CBS reports. “You don’t get inclusion until you stir it up. I want you to stir it up, governor. Stir it up.”

    Gov. Rauner went on to do just that, offering to drink the chocolate milk live on stage.

    “You’ll drink it? You’ll be proud to,” Stoudemire quipped, after which Gov. Rauner took a sizable gulp, gave a thumbs up, and unsolicitedly shouted, “It’s really, really good… Diversity!”

    The country around Tennant Creek is ancient and beautiful. The red soil, if you give it water will grow anything. Well worth seeing, if for no other reason you gain an appreciation of how vast this country is. There’s a museum at Battery Hill dedicated to the gold era as well, which wasn’t all that long ago.

    The problem is navigating around the town itself. One Friday night at about 11pm there was a frightful banging on the side door of the station – it was a group of tourists who couldn’t get to their motel because there were drunken blackfellas all over the street between them and their destination. I ended up driving them there – they absolutely shit themselves at seeing the ballistic vest and pumpy in the 4wd.

    At the same time my van crew was herding the group, kelpie style, from the town towards the camps.

    Someone accurately said in the media the other day, ‘Normal people go to work between 9 and 5, then go home, lock their doors and listen to the town explode around them’.

    India’s message to Canadian PM Trudeau is Loud and Clear

    Justin Trudeau is a mascot of everything that is wrong with the world today. From being at the forefront of encouraging every degeneracy to welcoming radicalism into his homeland, from cheap gimmicks of tokenism to attempts at creating a culture of politically correct absurdities, the stink of his leftist hypocrisy wafts far and wide.As citizen of India, I could not care less if the elected leader of Canada seeks to drive his nation to the dumps. But where it has an adverse effect on my country is where I choose to draw the line.

    Trudeau will be in Amritsar on the 21st of February, and according to some reports, he has refused to meet the Punjab chief minister Captain Amarinder Singh. No official reason has been cited, but it is believed that this move of Trudeau’s is aimed at appeasing pro-Khalistani Sikhs in Canada. Captain Amarinder, despite belonging to the Congress Party which has a dismal record in protecting India’s sovereignty, has been a vocal critic of the Khalistan movement.

    Top U.S. conservative event CPAC has been hijacked by LGBT activists. Trust me, I used to be one

    I attended my first Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) nearly a decade ago, while still living as a gay man.

    I had recently undergone a ‘political awakening’ and, as a participant in the Tea Party movement from its inception, had recently co-founded National Capital Tea Party Patriots in Washington, DC.

    At the time, I was dating a guy whose cousin was one of the Republican Party’s famous three “Young Guns” — Eric Cantor, Kevin McCarthy and Paul Ryan — who were rising in leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives. I felt like that added to my conservative bona fides.

    Soon after walking through the door to CPAC at DC’s venerable Wardman Park Hotel, something unexpected happened: My ‘gadar’ — that mysterious internal instrument that informs gay guys that they are in the presence of other gays — began buzzing off the charts. The needle shot to the upper reaches of the red zone and remained there.

    I was again pleasantly surprised when, as I began leafing through the CPAC program, I discovered that a gay group that called itself, GOProud, had a booth alongside all the other old guard conservative exhibitors.

    Interestingly, while making my way past all the other exhibitor’s tables in order to get to GOProud’s booth, I spotted a very nice looking young man dressed in a Navy pea coat and sporting a great Kennedy-esque head of hair, standing alone near the GOProud booth. I thought for a minute that I might like to meet him.

    As I drew closer, I was overcome with horror. What I had thought was a handsome guy turned out to be MSNBC’s Rachel Maddow, no doubt doing undercover reconnaissance work for her show.

    I would like to use my embarrassing Maddow mistake as a metaphor for what I believe is the current state of CPAC, namely that things at CPAC are not what they seem. While at a distance it might seem that CPAC is a solidly conservative enterprise, a close-up view reveals something entirely different.

    Last week I reported that CPAC had abruptly rescinded its acceptance of the pro-family group MassResistance as an exhibitor at its annual national meeting while permitting the pro-LGBT group, Log Cabin Republicans, to remain.

    MassResistance’s founder, Brian Camenker, suggested that CPAC continuing to define itself as conservative is “deceiving.”

    “Similar to the direction of the GOP establishment, in recent years CPAC has become more libertarian-oriented and pro-LGBT – and hardly any pro-family groups have had exhibits or been sponsors. This seems to mesh with the attendees: approximately half are 18-24, and clearly products of modern culture,” he said.

    Camenker is right. The trading of conservative values for values-free libertarianism should come as a surprise to no one. CPAC set itself on this trajectory years ago.

    At my very first CPAC gathering, I quickly came to understand that CPAC was not so much a conservative group as a libertarian one when I noticed that year after year, Ron Paul won CPAC’s presidential straw poll. And it was no wonder he won: The Paul Campaign always made sure that CPAC was flooded with college-aged attendees who are prone to libertarianism.

    Night of knife crime prompts Khan to seek emergency meeting as machete fight VIDEO goes viral

    London Mayor Sadiq Khan has called for a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May as knife crime in the capital hits crisis levels. Two people were stabbed to death on February 20 – the 14th and 15th knife deaths in 2018.
    London Assembly figures showed there were 14,521 knife crime offenses in the capital in the 12 months to January 2018, with stabbings in London at their highest level in six years, a 23 percent rise from the previous year.

    Big case before the Scotus next week. If they find for the plaintiffs one source of funding for the D’rats will get much smaller.

    The Supreme Court on Monday will hear the landmark First Amendment case Janus v. Afscme that challenges whether public employees can be compelled to subsidize union advocacy. As Thomas Jefferson once wrote, requiring “a man to furnish contributions of money for the propagation of opinions which he disbelieves, is sinful and tyrannical”—and unconstitutional.

    Janus gives the Supreme Court another crack at its flawed Abood (1977) precedent that let governments force nonunion public employees to pay “agency fees.” A 4-4 Court split in Friedrichs v. CTA (2016) after Justice Antonin Scalia’s death left Abood standing, but perhaps not for long.

    In 2015 Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner sued to overturn a state agency-fee law. Child support specialist Mark Janus and two other state workers later joined the case, arguing that they shouldn’t be required to support collective-bargaining positions with which they disagree. Mr. Janus must fork over $44.58 of each paycheck to the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (Afscme).

    LOS ANGELES — The federal agency that issues green cards and grants citizenship to people from foreign countries has stopped characterizing the United States as “a nation of immigrants.”

    The director of United States Citizenship and Immigration Services informed employees in a letter on Thursday that its mission statement had been revised to “guide us in the years ahead.” Gone was the phrase that described the agency as securing “America’s promise as a nation of immigrants.”

    The original mission statement said: “U.S.C.I.S. secures America’s promise as a nation of immigrants by providing accurate and useful information to our customers, granting immigration and citizenship benefits, promoting an awareness and understanding of citizenship, and ensuring the integrity of our immigration system.”

    The new version says: “U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services administers the nation’s lawful immigration system, safeguarding its integrity and promise by efficiently and fairly adjudicating requests for immigration benefits while protecting Americans, securing the homeland and honoring our values.”

    Love to get pissed and hit the mattress, but I have to be up at 6.30 and behind the computer again. Can’t do that with a hangover.

    Keep your head, down, mate. I don’t do hangovers very well at my time of life, however, I can afford the very best the night before.

    Man who ran down Kalgoorlie teen Elijah Doughty set for release

    A protest is planned in honour of Elijah Doughty, who was run down in 2016.
    Police in Kalgoorlie are on high alert due to the impending release of a man who killed a 14-year-old boy.
    Elijah Doughty died when he was run over in bushland in August 2016.
    The man behind the wheel had chased the teen, after spotting Elijah riding one of two motorbikes stolen from his Kalgoorlie home.

    The driver, who cannot be named for legal reasons, was acquitted of manslaughter at his trial but convicted of dangerous driving causing death.

    After serving 17 months behind bars, the man is eligible for release on parole as early as Monday.

    Elijah’s death sparked violent race riots in 2016 and there’s fears tensions at Saturday’s protest in Kalgoorlie could boil over once more.

    During the 2016 anger, the courthouse was damaged and police officers were injured.
    Elijah’s grandfather says he wants a peaceful walk through the Main Street calling for justice.
    There is a large police presence in Kalgoorlie in preparation for Saturday’s protest.

    No fucking comment.

    WHY ARE WOMEN BETTER SHOOTERS?

    Women are better at shooting rifles than men. When I first heard this statement, I thought the speaker was being more than a bit overzealous. I mean, how often do you see a professional female shooter? Gun shows like Top Shot recognize one or two each year. When I first became interested in firearms, I didn’t know a single other woman who owned a gun. In fact, even now I can only count a few among my girl friends who have shot a gun more than once. However, just because few women participate in firearm sports, doesn’t mean that women aren’t talented shooters. Science proves that women hold a distinct advantage in long-distance shooting.

    Why are women good long-distance shooters?

    Our bodies are built differently than men. In sports like football this may be a disadvantage, but for sports like mountain climbing and long-distance shooting, our unique body structure actually works as a benefit. Wider hips and a lower distribution of weight provide women with more balance and control. According to expert marksman (or markswoman) Launi Mieli, head coach of the Air Force Academy rifle team and the only American woman to win an Olympic gold in small-bore rifle, “Women have a lower center of gravity and I think that gives them a distinct advantage in shooting from the standing position. I think they have better balance.”

    Let’s not forget that the Coalition government negotiated with a member of Islamic State so she and her sprog could return to Australia. Note they neglected to inform the public what they were doing on our behalf until months after their return.

    What did the negotiations entail? Seriously what was there to negotiate? What’s the bet she’s running around Western Sydney in a niqab collecting Centrelink payments and her sprog will be raised as a Pius Muslim. What could possibly go wrong?

    Also note that after six months the AFP are still trying to work out whether to charge the traitorous moll. Utterly incompetent morons.

    Why do they have separate competitions for men and women at the Olympics?

    Fuck I’m sick of this feminist propaganda.

    WHY ARE WOMEN BETTER SHOOTERS?

    Indeed, when I did my Commonwealth coaching qualifications, this was pointed out to us, with particular reference to offhand pistol shooting, where a woman’s hip structure allows her to actually “lock” into position moreso than a male’s.

  179. jupes

    The only sports that I’m aware of that women can compete equally with men are breath-hold diving and equestrian events.

    They can’t even compete equally with men at chess FFS.

    Sorry, Jupes, they may not have the physical muscular structure to hold a firearm at arm’s length as steadily or for as long as a male, but they sure as hell can stand steadier than we do, at least from the waist down.

    I’ve seen a man and a woman locked into the offhand ISSF shooting position. All jokes aside, it was easier to push him “off target” than her. Shorter legs helped of course. Plus B-I-G baby-bearing hips. She was a rock.

  191. jupes

    Probably because it’s physiologically a fact.

    What, that a woman can “lock into a postion moreso than a male” ?

    What does that even mean “lock into a position”? Please explain.

    Bottom line is blokes can shoot better than women. That’s why they don’t compete against each other at the Olympics.

    FMD some blokes are gullible.

    This man has had his house burnt down, and his family moved to South Australia for their own safety. Here’s a hint – he’s done his time.

  196. Bruce in WA

    What does that even mean “lock into a position”? Please explain.

    Bottom line is blokes can shoot better than women. That’s why they don’t compete against each other at the Olympics.

    FMD some blokes are gullible.

    Just before I go.

    OK, mate, you want to keep it going. Fine. “Lock into position” is a shooting term. Basically, it involves you consciously “dropping” your upper body weight into your hips so you don’t rock as much. Like it or not, women do it better than we do. Don’t believe it? Fine. No skin off my nose. Up to you.

    Gullible? After 50+ years shooting and coaching? Don’t think so, chummy. I have no argument with the fact men can, as a rule, shoot better than women (although we have a few women who can shoot the shit outta me — but that’s not hard to do). But that does NOT negate the fact that women can adopt a steadier, more stable offhand stance than men. There are other reasons for the male superiority, mostly related to muscle. Like it or lump it.

    Now I’m going to bed. So sleep tight, Jupes. As I said, you’re one of the good guys … but even you can be blind to some things.

    She wished them “A very good evening” in Mandarin…We had the best of service after that..

    The FIL was fluent in 7 languages (his father 9 and his mother 14 – all long since dead). You rarely see that any more. Real education, Although, those lot were somewhat “privileged”. I struggle with basic English.

    Thankfully, Dad left school at 14 and could add up. Both in the mathematical and the “human stakes” sense.

    The latter is the most important. Happiness.

    From a standing position at short range with a ‘smallbore’ handgun, making the assumption that it’s a .22 or similar, you may get the odd anomaly where a chick will beat an average bloke.

    Standing or prone or in between, and with any longarm .223 or over, no chance. Particularly with the larger calibre centrefires.

  199. Bruce in WA

    One anecdote doesn’t make a “physiological fact”.

    I started this coaching “shit” in 1975. So what’s that — 43 years? Back ten we were shown with X-rays, diagrams and a whole lot of “centre of balance” shit I thought I’d left behind in high school that demonstrated centre of gravity between male and female. No “anecdotes”. FMD, look it up if you want! I stupidly keep coming back to turn the computer off before bed … and answer

  200. Bruce in WA

    FFS, I didn’t say they would beat a male. All I said was they can stand more rigidly because of their hip structure. End of story.

    Umm, not the 7.62 NATO SLR, nor the L4A4 LMG, nor the M60 machine gun…

  202. Bruce in WA

    Excuse me, guys. Bed calls. Another time perhaps.

    Maybe we can discuss the effects of sugar consumption before shooting, focal range, caffeine, shooting between heartbeats, diazepam, hearing loss even through earplugs …

    Goodnight.

  203. jupes

    But that does NOT negate the fact that women can adopt a steadier, more stable offhand stance than men.

    Utter horseshit.

    A stable stance is a requirement in a lot of sports besides shooting, yet they cannot compete on equal terms with men in any of them.

    So after “50 years shooting and coaching” please explain to me why women and men don’t compete against each other at the Olympics. If women are more stable and steadier than men surely they can compete on equal terms? Actually women should beat men if that was the case.

    It’s a mystery.

  204. jupes

    FFS, I didn’t say they would beat a male. All I said was they can stand more rigidly because of their hip structure. End of story.

    No no. You agreed that women are better shooters than men. Here is your post from 11.54:

    A couple fo times cats have mentioned a book or essay by I think Lewis Carroll on god or man and god or christianity or something like. Can you say it again, please Sam? I am trying to find such but it is difficult getting past the myriad Alices in 500 translations ..

    It might not have been Carroll … 🙁

    The Rohingyas. Another of Testes’ favourite interest groups.
