    Great banner Sinc!

    Tony bought me to tears, Bill sent me to sleep, Scott – I thought was at the league calling bingo.

    I want a compilation of the ABC presenters best moments on Saturday night. We may have avoided a downhill sled ride to Venestralia.

  5. Botswana O'Hooligan

    Thanks for using the little Black Throat on the banner for they signify just how bloody stupid Labor and the Greens are. I used to trap those little blokes when I was a kid and sell them for 2/6 a pair because they were/are all over the place in Qld. depending on the grass seed cover.

  6. The Sheriff

    Nine Entertainment newspaper The Age has confirmed that the lingering Turdball termites in the partyroom are learning all the wrong lessons from Saturday night: https://www.theage.com.au/federal-election-2019/tony-abbott-under-fire-for-refusing-to-retire-before-warringah-defeat-20190519-p51p18.html

    Mr Abbott’s defeat has been welcomed by moderate MPs who believe it gives the Liberal Party and Prime Minister Scott Morrison a chance to move on without the presence of Mr Abbott and his long-time rival Malcolm Turnbull.

    One former colleague said Mr Abbott’s departure from federal politics would give relief from “culture war shit” and elevate the standing of moderate forces

    “There will be a much cleaner pathway on emissions reduction and energy policy. A lot of the new people elected have no interest in this culture war shit. It won’t be pushed by the new generation people.”

    These idiots seriously think that the Coalition should be peddling perverse shit like Safe Schools because Abbott lost. Do they really think that’s what motivated ONP and UAP preferences to back them in Queensland? Idiots.

    These stories are invented out of whole cloth. Never happened.

    The climate worshiping queer brigade are now irrelevant. Abbott destroyed them all and cleared the pass for Morrison. The LNP is more conservative now than it was a week ago.

    For a moment there I thought the heading was Extinction Night Screeches …something to do with the birdies in the screenshot.

    The climate worshiping queer brigade are now irrelevant. Abbott destroyed them all and cleared the pass for Morrison.

    The way Frydenberg is talking I’d have to express some reservations about that.

    The LNP is more conservative now than it was a week ago.

    Yes but that’s like saying Carlton looks more like a football team than they did last year.

    IT I hope your optimism is justified, and certainly recent events have given cause for hope.
    But don’t underestimate the propensity of the Liberals to interpret everything as a sign to go harder left.

  11. Pyrmonter

    IT, TN – recall that it was your ‘conservative’ ‘culture warrior’ who did nothing about 18C, imposed a ‘fairness’ surtax, retained the RET and threatened a further massive welfare program in ‘paid parental leave’. Is it too much to simply expect liberalism – respect for personal choice, freedom, and secure property – from an ostensibly liberal government?

  12. Pyrmonter:

    We ask for nothing more, and we’ll accept nothing less.

  13. Rebel with cause

    There’s some pretty good trolling in the Morrison speech:

    God’s Blessings for Shorten
    Miracles
    Thanking Tony Abbott
    NSW Liberal win reminder
    God Bless Australia

  14. Leo G

    BS was BS.

    “Now that the contest is over”, he said, “all of us have a responsibility to respect the result, to respect the wishes of all the Australian people, and to bring our nation together.”
    “Australia needs and needed to have real action on climate change”. On climate change, amongst (other ideological issues) Australia remains deeply divided. For the sake of the next generation, we must find a way forward on climate change.”
    “This is what politics should be in our country, politics should be the battle of ideas.
    I say, carry on the fight! I say, Labor will never give up.
    Our. time. will. come.”
    “We can’t change the past, but my word, we can change the future.”

    So Bill believes the way we respectfully bring people together is to fight Labor’s opponents, defeat them, force them into submission.
    Yes, BS is still BS.

  15. vlad

    Albanese in his election night speech – I can’t find it online – said (and I quote) “Australia needs a Labor government.”

    That’s the ALP mentality; forget elections. Australia doesn’t decide what it needs; the ALP decides what Australia needs. And what the ALP decides Australia needs is lots and lots (more) of the ALP.

    I hope that speech appears on a campaign ad sometime – for the Liberal Party!

  16. C.L.

    Jenny Morrison is exceedingly telegenic and lovely.

  17. Infidel Tiger

    Cute kids too.

  18. Infidel Tiger

    IT, TN – recall that it was your ‘conservative’ ‘culture warrior’ who did nothing about 18C, imposed a ‘fairness’ surtax, retained the RET and threatened a further massive welfare program in ‘paid parental leave’.

    The public don’t want that.

    Those are fringe issues for academics not normal people.

  19. Infidel Tiger

    And besides let’s not reinvent history.

    18c and the RET are squarely on the liberal wing of the liberal party.

    Pyne, Brandis and Turnbull conspired to make sure Abbott was stuffed when he tried to change them.

  20. Old Lefty

    Interesting that Joel Fitzgibbon, one of the few sensible types left in the ALP, has come out in similar terms to Abbott about the political divide. He has pretty good political instincts and had a near -death experience in his own seat of Hunter which even the former-Fairfax Newcastle Herald described as a one-finger salute to Labor’s climate policy. Note also the big swings against Labor in western Sydney – the Folau affair etc playing out?

  21. Dr Fred Lenin

    The nice birds on the banner ,we should use them to stop Renewable confarms of wind and solar ,it would be heartless to kill nice little birds like that for some carpetbbagger to profit ,especially foreign carpetbaggers. They should be staked out on their own solar panels ,or taught to fly from thre bird killng towers ,good for teaching poofs how to fly too .bit of multiculture.

  22. Nob

    I underestimated Morrison.

    I mightn’t have if I’d seen more of this kind of thing: “the Borat tax”

    A PM fighting like an opposition leader.

  23. TBH

    Tony’s speech was fantastic and gracious. He’s a fine man who I’m sure will still do plenty in his community, just out of the public glare. I predict he will have a very fulfilling retirement, unlike some other bitter types who have surrounded him in public.
