    Hi Ellie.

    Great tribal council on Survivor tonight.

  34. Turtle of WA

    Snowcone and the People’s Republic Panelist are making idiotic and traitorous moral equivalences.

  35. Interesting to see who terri butler ends up in court defaming this week.

    Anyone know what the upshot of that whole computer room circus was?

    My understanding is it may have cost her circa $150,000
    But that’s just a figure I made up & it could be totally wrong.

  36. Ellie

    Hi Ellie.

    Great tribal council on Survivor tonight.

    Yes, indeed it was.

  37. Cpt Seahawks

    Apartheid rallies. That has turned out well. It was a foreign forced policy too.

  38. Hi Ellie.

    What???

  42. Cpt Seahawks

    Hi Peter, touches the nose.

  43. Cpt Seahawks

    Turtle Poms introduced apartheid.

  44. Apartheid rallies. That has turned out well. It was a foreign forced policy too.

    I think that implied anti-apartheid rallies

  45. Snowcone thinks the Maginot line was an “imaginary” line of defence.

    I’m lounging in a filmy negligee while Beulah peels me a grape.

  48. egg_

    Is Butler morphing into Killary before our eyes?

  49. Post the defamation fiasco, Terri Butler is so funny on Q&A, being very careful to waffle but say absolutely nothing.

  50. egg_

    Looks like Butler’s been on M0nster’s Krispy Kremes diet.

  51. Snowcone thinks the Maginot line was an “imaginary” line of defence.

    It was imaginary right up to the point you got shot.

  52. roger

    Does anyone suspect like me that Terry Butler has extensive speech training?

  53. Is it just me or is butler a low energy dim bulb

    Factcheck status: True

  54. Cpt Seahawks

    Terri has two settings, mind numbing and grating.

  55. custard

    Butler admits she didn’t read Hastie’s article yet gets a free pass to slime him.

  56. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    My understanding is it may have cost her circa $150,000
    But that’s just a figure I made up & it could be totally wrong.

    From memory, the person who brought the original complaint was trying a GoFundMe for her legal bills – she raised a couple of thousand dollars. One of the students had a GoFundMe to pay his legal bills – he raised well over the amount he needed, so IIRC, he paid his fellow student’s bills.

    She really is a low energy dim bulb! G’day Carpe. Good luck with your unfair dismissal case. Lawyers can be such arseholes! As can former employees.

    Carpe Jugulum, may I propose a 2nd lotto: how many questions snowcone asks?

  70. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Indeed, I’m sitting here on the couch wearing my MAGA hoodie with my MAGA t-shirt underneath.

    I’m sitting on the verandah wearing my sweatshirt that quotes Winston Churchill. ” Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. It’s inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

    I wore it down the street, to cast my ballot, just after we moved up here, and nearly got into a fight with one of the “true believers.”

  71. Turtle of WA

    Michelle Williamson clone

    Who?

  72. Ellie

    AC Grayling, get a hair cut

  73. “The great lavatory war of the internet”

    I am stealing that

  74. Turtle of WA

    I’m sitting on the verandah wearing my sweatshirt that quotes Winston Churchill. ” Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy. It’s inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery.”

    I got that. Snap.

  75. custard

    Evening Zulu,

    I can picture that. Hope this finds you well.

  76. roger

    I wore it down the street, to cast my ballot,

    When I was working as a ballot official in a previous election, and some Greenie walked in with a Refugees Welcome message or some similar nonsense on her T-shirt, she got told off by me.

  77. People’s Republic Panellist says if Democracy was Perfect, Trump would never be elected.
    Right.

  78. Turtle of WA

    I wore it down the street, to cast my ballot, just after we moved up here, and nearly got into a fight with one of the “true believers.”

    I used to do that. Lately I’ve found it more amusing when they don’t see me coming. I can wind them up worse that way.

  79. The BigBlueCat

    Churchill said:

    “Indeed it has been said that democracy is the worst form of Government except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.”

    He also said:

    “The best argument against Democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.”

  80. Terri Butler struggling to define “democracy”
    Snowcone comes to the rescue.

  81. The BigBlueCat

    AC Grayling thinks that democracy only works for people he finds agreeable …. go figure!

  82. This is fantastic. A questioner in the audience who understands both democracy and the US Electoral College.

    This puts him about 5 furlongs ahead of Snowcone & the panel.

  83. The BigBlueCat

    AC Grayling being schooled … doesn’t look happy!

  84. Turtle of WA

    Struggling to pronounce “plurality”.

  85. roger

    “No sexual harasser gets into the White House”

    ,
    Says someone who, no doubt, supported Bill Clinton and his rape-enabler wife.

  86. Young black man – pro Trump, snowcone is confused.

  87. custard

    Old grey headed idiot thinks Trump should never have been elected. Black guy slaps him about! Brilliant.

  88. This is hilarious.
    TDS being accepted as conventional wisdom by panellists.
    … then being schooled by a random audience member.

  89. the not very bright Marcus

    Go SAMUEL…. how did he get past the getting at the door ?

  90. egg_

    Fascist Philosopher can’t comprehend Democracy.

  91. Cpt Seahawks

    Marianne Williamson? Whatever her name, the hippy running as Democrat Canditate.

  92. Turtle of WA

    Tezza But sure has that lefty smug loving your own farts face.

  93. Young black man – pro Trump, snowcone is confused.

    First time I’ve seen Snowcone reduced to incoherent muttering.

  94. Some History

    Claire’s 4 working neurons are overloaded.

  95. roger

    By the way, a bit of trivia: Terri Butler would possibly never had been an MP if we had a purely majority election system. Her Liberal opponent got more votes than her in the by-election after KRudd quit.

  96. Omg, these dickheads do not understand why USA has elections on Tuesday.
    Shine a torch in one ear & light would come out the other side.
    They probably believe they’re political experts.

  97. The BigBlueCat

    Grayling needs to stop and think that Trump isn’t the government – he’s the President. Big difference.

  98. the not very bright Marcus

    Vetting…. not getting

  99. Turtle of WA

    Roger Scruton would make this moron piss.

  100. Wow, the bloke who looks like Catweazle would after a bath & shampoo, is tying himself in knots to rationalise that Trump is unfit for office.

  101. roger

    Young black man – pro Trump, snowcone is confused.

    Snowcone cannot deploy his usual insufferable patronising to shut-up conservative views, as the guy is Black.
    Superior to snowcone in the Leftist victimhood totem.

  102. Turtle of WA

    By the way, a bit of trivia: Terri Butler would possibly never had been an MP if we had a purely majority election system. Her Liberal opponent got more votes than her in the by-election after KRudd quit.

    Gold.

  103. Alan Tudge says it is a “ridiculous” question to suggest Australia is an Authoritarian state.
    The “impartial” audience moans at his stupidity.

  104. Swamp donkey asks Butler a question – Botox shares reach new highs

  105. Some History

    Alan Trudge having a hissy fit. “We’re not authoritarian!!” That’s the problem with the glibs.

  106. Turtle of WA

    Tudge is copping a pile on.

  107. Some History

    Claire recommending Gillian Tricks’ book.

  108. OMFG, just took a glimpse at Clare Wright’s twitter feed.
    I need brain bleach.
    She’s easier on the eye than Clem Ford, & a touch more dignified. That’s about all.

  109. The BigBlueCat

    Tudge missed the opportunity to state that the only authoritarian states in Australia are held by the ALP!

  110. Turtle of WA

    Read Triggs’ book????

  111. custard

    If it was possible to be more mendacious than Senator Kristina Keneally then Terri Butler MP would win the prize.

    Do you get free crayons?

  114. Old Lefty

    Can’t bear to watch Q&A, but is Snowcone as fawning towards Grayling as he is towards that other specimen of the dregs of the Brit intelligentsia Dawkins?

  115. Turtle of WA

    Can’t bear to watch Q&A, but is Snowcone as fawning towards Grayling as he is towards that other specimen of the dregs of the Brit intelligentsia Dawkins?

    Yep

  116. Dave in Marybrook

    Roger-
    for a while I calculated the Jones Coefficient, the ratio of “audience questions” to the amount of springer-jones’ dissemblances, re-directions, trailing commissions and outright derailments.
    But I’m in W.A., so it’s never a live count here on the Cat.

  117. Imagine a leftist tongue bath, now multiply it by 12

  118. Dave in Marybrook

    One thing the jones Coefficient made me realise is that there’s often only five or six questions from the randomly picked studio audience. Usually 20 or 25:5.

  119. Turtle of WA

    Graything: Human beings are human beings.

    Should a philosopher start an utterance with an empty tautology?

  120. Imagine a leftist tongue bath, now multiply it by 12

    I could probably handle Clare Wright, but draw the line at Terri Butler, or the cleaned-up version of Catweazle.

  121. Some History

    Australia is free. You can bring bottles of water on a plane.

  122. Turtle of WA

    Imagine a leftist tongue bath, now multiply it by 12

    Hitchens (despite redeeming features) used to just about have Snowcone whipping it out.

  123. Interruptions came in at 22 Jackpot time troops

  124. Jones Coefficient, the ratio of “audience questions” to the amount of springer-jones’ dissemblances, re-directions, trailing commissions and outright derailments.

    Good one Dave.
    Should be included in the full package of Cat Q&A.
    1/. Interruption Lotto
    2/. Spot the Plant
    3/. Jones coefficient

  125. roger

    I’m in W.A., so it’s never a live count here on the Cat

    No Q&A (or at least no live one) in WA?
    Maybe I should move to WA.

  126. Some History

    Li Shee Su should get some social credits from the republic for his pro-statism.

  127. Turtle of WA

    Some loathesome scum among that lot.

    Next week: Noel Pearson with his wanky Moses act.

  128. Australia is free. You can bring bottles of water on a plane.

    Yeah, Clare doesn’t do too well once she’s off her patch.
    Being a professor of feminist history prolly ain’t a good training ground for developing the thinking muscles.

  129. I’m done Troops
    Oyasumi Naai

    See you Thursday.

  130. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Evening Zulu,

    I can picture that. Hope this finds you well.

    It does, indeed Custard. I have dined well, with a couple of glasses of Windy Creek Merlot – a very fine winery, in the Swan Valley – and I’m sitting on the verandah with a large Scotch and a good book. All the best to you, and yours.

  131. Turtle of WA

    Good on you Jugulum. Cheers mate.

  132. roger

    Next week: Noel Pearson with his wanky Moses act.

    It’s a Martin Luther King Jr. act.

  133. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha

    Next week: Noel Pearson with his wanky Moses act.

    “Tell me, Mr Pearson, given recent remarks by yourself, Pat Dodson, and certain other high profile indigenous leaders, whose names escape me, why should your average Australian vote, at referendum, to grant Aborigines constitutional recognition, and a “voice” in Parliament?”

  134. Tom

    We do this so you don’t have to.

    Thanks, Carpe and Cats. Always an entertaining read the next morning.

  135. Win

    Ditto Tom and Jug. Beat them at their own game Thursday.

  136. egg_

    Noel Pearson with his wanky Moses act.

    He’s a contestant on The Voice, isn’t he?

  137. 1735099

    Li Shee Su, people’s panellist nails it – “Vietnam, like Iraq, was based on a pack of lies……”
