    Sorry about the thread hijack, Rafe, but there was a cracker of an article published this morning under Senator Fraser Anning’s name. It probably won’t get much news traction, but is certainly of interest to many Cat readers.

    The joys of cold weather. I lived in Wisconsin for a year. A beautiful place. For winter you change tyres on your car for grip, plug in the car’s sump heater over night so it will start in the morning with lubrication.
    Change summer flywire on the Windows for double glazing in winter. Service the snow blower….the list goes on. Its a harsh environment with frostbite warnings on the radio when it gets to 30-odd below and even some locals end up in hospital with frozen bits.
    Oh, and freezing rain that hangs on powerlines in such volume, the weight brings them down.

    Excellent Article

    What stood out

    And sadly, I see no evidence that this “Labor-lite” approach to politics has changed at all under Mr. Turnbull’s successor, whose elevation by a Liberal government sailing towards electoral judgment has amounted to little more than the re-arrangement of the deck chairs on the Titanic.

    However, it has to be said that the Morrison government is very difficult to differentiate from Labor on many issues and if not driving, is at least enabling left-wing cultural change by refusing to undo left-wing Labor initiatives.

    Given its role in helping to push the Overton window in this country further to the left, apparently deeming formerly Marxist policies acceptable but the policies of Menzies “extreme right,” a Morrison-led Liberal Government does not deserve the vote of conservatives.

  4. Up The Workers!

    Two of the best examples of what Senator Anning is talking about, are the Victorian State Liberal Misgovernments of Ted Bailed-Out and Dennis Nap-Time.

    Both campaigned against everything Labor(sic) had implemented, yet when in Misgovernment, retained nearly every aspect of it and replaced almost nothing.

    Their sterling work made them what they are today…the emasculated Victorian Opposition! (They evidently all shave with Gillette!)

    What sort of pipes are we talking about here?

    1 – I could do with some cold proofing my pipes in winter here (Tawonga) nothing like North America but frozen burst pipes are quite common over winter here. Chook water and pet water frozen all day if they’re in the shadows.

    2- Up the Workers is spot on. the Vic Libs have completely lost their way since Kennett. There is almost no difference between them and Labor. Why vote for soft lefties when you can have the real thing?
