    You done it now I have to listen. Bugga.

  3. Mark A

    Other than the typical American habit of bragging at the start, which I loath, I can’t see anything depressing in the speech.

    In the words of the great one on this forum, he (writes) speaks for an audience, the American one.

  4. Howard Hill

    It’s not that his speech was bad, no, no.
    It’s because I live in DannoStan on the yarra and can only dream of the freedom that Americans have. I’m too old now to leave this shithole 🙁

  5. Mark A

    Apologies H H, I misunderstood.😴

  6. iamok

    Agree HH I just can’t see a way for Victoriastan to get out of this mess. We were talking about it last night over dinner. Who is our Trump, our bureaucracy breaker? How do we get past the masses of leeches and screeching tossers infesting every institution? I fear we are doomed. Doomed!

    Well played, Howard.

    “The heirs of yesterday’s foolish fortune tellers”.

    Optimism, energy, hope. Great speech.

  8. Too true, there does not appear to one good conservative politician about at present, one who at least is compelling in front of the news cameras. Unfortunately Michael O’Brien is just another cliche dribble merchant, unable to lay a solid critical blow against Andrews, and only gets a very brief moment on camera in any case. Andrews has not as yet morphed into a dictator, but one has some foreboding about that.

  9. Jonesy

    Andrews always gives me the impression he is a toaddie to someone…wukkas united will never be defeated!

  10. Tony Tea

    The correct name is Viktoria.

    Well he has a lot to brag about and remind them out there that they get a lot if false news . What inspired me were his reminders of man’s past achievements , Brunelleschi ‘s duomo in Florence an amazing human feat to master the engineering to build the dome .
    In the meantime we need to hire Fillippo here to help Andrew with the tunnel.

    It was great, very positive.

  13. John of Mel

    Other than the typical American habit of bragging at the start,

    Most of the “normal” people haven’t heard of any of his very real and positive achievements due to fake news filtering. That’s why he has to mention it every time he speaks. That’s the only way to get the word out.
    Look at the way his speech was mentioned in AU media – it was something about Greta and not much else.

  14. JohnJJJ

    They must hate him. All their years of moral grandstanding, secret wheeling and dealing, juggling cross favours, whispering, compromise, virtue signalling, scratching backs, going down, building kingdoms. Davos …this worldwide den of thieves.

  15. Roger

    Andrews always gives me the impression he is a toaddie to someone…

    He’s owned by the Socialist Left faction of the Vic ALP.

  16. Chris M

    “Who is our Trump”

    Don’t see anything like this in our political system, the uniparty picks and dumps it’s own leaders randomly. In addition Australia is mostly run by powerful and highly paid ‘public servants’ who sit on little fifedoms with a mountain of complex regulations beneath them. Nothing changes in these fifedoms irrespective of which uniparty leader or figurehead ‘L party’ is around. Any disruptors like say Pauline are dealt with severely (remember Abbott had her incarcerated) not to mention the MSM dump on them 24/7 with continual “four legs bad” bleating.

  17. Mother Lode

    Andrews always gives me the impression he is a toaddie to someone

    He is permanently stooped and sycophantic out of long habit.

    He probably only does things like eat, tie his shoes or sing in the shower as a favour to himself that he might redeem one day.

    The ALP is one of those organisations where you mount the highest peaks by scraping along your belly in a sewer.

  18. Trump at Davos rubbing democratic nationalism in the globalists’ faces. )

  19. Mother Lode

    The brashness and confidence of Americans, which so many dismiss as tasteless (and often enough misplaced) is surely one of the reasons America does well. Their best people certainly don’t disqualify themselves with false modesty (and their worst had no intention of being modest in the first place) and are ready to push an idea or stand their ground – they won’t take shit. And in these days of unremitting assault from the totalitarian left, this is a life-saving virtue.

    We in Australia, and the British, are so accommodating that overbearing politicians have been able to push a socialist agenda relentlessly. Of the two the British are more likely to eventually speak up, while we speak of being ‘easy-going’. The Europeans don’t need to have socialism pressed upon them. They have long welcomed it. They seem to have learned exactly the wrong lesson from WW2.

    Trump isn’t President just because he is that talented – he has pushed himself to the front. He is a well seasoned fighter.

  20. FelixKruell

    A good speech, especially the last bit.

    The bit on the economy under Obama, and the trade deals and trade relationships had at best a passing relationship with the truth, but for Trump, that’s not bad either.

  21. Gyro Cadiz

    You could almost hear the grinding of teeth in the audience as he stood there and told them that everything they had ever done was a self-serving and corrupt lie to feather their own nests.

  22. Squirrel

    Some good lines in that speech, but the equally notable take-out from Davos was the Charles & Greta love-in.

    A minimalist republic is looking more appealing.

  23. Catfeesh?

    My hope is that ScoMo and the Libs are watching to see what happens in the 2020 US election. Trumpy will smash the Democrap hopeful. Maybe it will stimulate enough testosterone for them to grow some balls and emulate the Donald.

    Well, one can dream.

    Hahaha! You’re too clever for me calli ;~)

    There isn’t one. The USSA (United Socialist States of Australia ) have setup their government systems so that there’s no way to disrupt the illusion of a two party system and that you have a choice, both at the federal level and the state level. There is no way to fix this country while we continue to vote and pay our taxes, end of story!

  25. Yes, the two party systyem has one more choice than communism.

    Also remember the ALP-GRN-LNP uniparty is effectively a cartel now.
