  12. Infidel Tiger says:

    Concetta F-Wells was the one who ensured Jaymes Diaz was preselected for Greenway…just sayin’.

    She also claimed sexism had made it tough for her, completely overlooking her sub room temperature IQ.

  13. Baldrick says:

  18. Turtle of WA says:

    It’s been a while since there was an interruption filled shitfest on Q&A. Makes a bad thing even worse.

  19. Turtle of WA says:

    Sorry, shitfight, not shitfest. Shitfest is a given.

  20. Baldrick says:

    Or watch PM Live on Sky. Or read a book. Or get Netflix.

    Or watch Q&A and bag the shite out of the left luvvies.

  21. Foggyfig says:

    31 please

  22. Pecker says:

    Hey Carpe old son ….are you with us tonight?? we are missing you!!!

  23. Tony M says:

    What happened to Jimmy Barnes?

  24. Pecker says:

    Jimmy is in hospital… operated on late last week… all seems OK

  25. Tony M says:

    18 on the lotto, if it’s going

  26. Baldrick says:

    What happened to Jimmy Barnes?

    Got a gig at the ABC’s oldies home hosted by James Dibble.

  27. PeterF says:

    Looks like we are leaderless tonite

  28. Tony M says:

    It’s a surprise all that vodka didn’t pickle all his innards for posterity…..

  29. Shelley says:

    Yeah, he had to have emergency surgery late last week after an early back operation. I am glad he isn’t on – I like Jimmy generally and didn’t want to have that shattered by him making some stupid lefty remarks.

  30. Cold-Hands says:

    Thirty-eight for me please Carpe-sama.

  31. Wall to wall leftist swill, with a marginally less leftist for wet lettuce leaf bashing. I’ll go for just 17 interruptions, Carpe, to honour the leftist commitment to peddopihilic apologism.

  32. Peter from SA says:

    no Q&A on ABC 24 … just some roller-minxes … yawn …

  33. custard says:

    I’ll be an observer tonight. Reading a good book. I Suspect the leftist factor will be very high!

  34. Rich says:

    Concetta F-Wells was the one who ensured Jaymes Diaz was preselected for Greenway…just sayin’.

    Thereby ensuing I am ‘represented’ by Michelle Rowland

    She’s got a lot to answer for

  35. Mike of Marion says:

    20 Carpe

  36. Tony M says:

    I wish Kate would do something with those eyebrows

  37. Turtle of WA says:

    The most vulnerable in our society.

  38. Rich says:

    If you hit the rich harder than the poor then welfare would be higher than wages

    Oh wait, he just wants to keep handing out borrowed cash

  39. Turtle of WA says:

    Sam Dastyari is a walking caricature.

  40. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. says:

    SSSam Dastyari – Abbott government 666. 666. 666. 666. 666.

  41. Spider says:

    Sam is shocked. Oh dear.

  42. Rich says:

    They love that ideologue label

    I’m not sure how you determine which politicians are more ideological than others

  43. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. says:

    OK says the good Lib senator, we were elected to fix your mess.

  44. top Ender says:

    Sorry I’m late. In for 25 please.

    Sam D is obviously a professional whinger.

    Jon Biggins is obviously ready to moan too.

  45. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. says:

    Kim Williams. Old leftie. I’ve met him. Yes, it’s all ‘profoundly unfair’.

  46. Turtle of WA says:

    Dastyari’s facial features are so comically exaggerated a cartoonist would have nothing left to do.

  47. Andrew says:

    BIggins going full retard

  48. Spider says:

    Is that Moses in the audience.

  49. top Ender says:

    How can one be a “professional satirist?”

    Does he get paid by someone? Doubtless the ABC

  50. Turtle of WA says:

    Kim Williams. Old leftie. I’ve met him. Yes, it’s all ‘profoundly unfair’.

    Profound indeed.

  51. Rich says:

    So Howard left a structural deficit and Rudd faced a black hole

    Who is this retard?

  52. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. says:

    Abbott govt, 666 again. Black T-shirt, black glasses guy. Got his coat on, but.
    Everything ‘very imbalanced’.
    Howard years the problem, of course.
    Full left narrative, Rudd inherited such a problem, etc.
    Oh dear me.

  53. Tony M says:

    Sammy D looks like Chuckie, the ventriloquists dummy?

  54. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. says:

    Who are all these boring people? Lefties full on.

  55. “Go after big business” eh?

  56. PeterF says:

    Kate wants to know why we cannot get money out of companies and yet she can’t get the facts right in a book.

  57. Spider says:

    Mr Bean boo hoo. Hand me a hanky.

  58. Pecker says:

    Sammy needs to have his head lanced..to match his body size

  59. Oh boyo boyo boy, a Penalty Rates question.

  60. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. says:

    Penalty rates. Here’s a nurse won’t work nights.

    Kindly Dastyari says this is everyone’s story.
    He wants to keep it all, the penalty rates, and ‘create jobs’.
    Good luck with that.

  61. DJA says:

    Is Carpe OK where is he?

  62. Tony M says:

    The Fair work Commission and the states, I would have thought

  63. top Ender says:

    Sam Dastyari looks suspiciously like Mr Bean.

    Have the two ever been seen in the same room together?

  64. Uh oh says:

    5 minutes in and I think I’m about to vomit.

  65. Elizabeth (Lizzie) B. says:

    Well, I’m out.
    Da Hairy Ape just turned it off with the remote.
    Too boring.
    Totally agree.
    I am not into social service tonite.

  66. Spider says:

    How about Snowcones salary!

  67. Notafan says:

    Penalty rates, I’d like rates!

  68. Tony M says:

    Someone elses salary takes money out of your pocket, Jonathon?

  69. Uh oh says:

    Socialism. If we can’t all be rich then let’s be equally poor.

  70. Rich says:

    Idiot alert

  71. Okay, now the “The government has taken my super” question.

  72. Andrew says:

    Penalty rates? How about a job?!

  73. Shelley says:

    Sam is very odd looking. Mr Bean indeed.

  74. Andrew says:

    Concetta sucks at debating economics…this is hopeless.

  75. top Ender says:

    Biggins has form. Imagine sitting through one of his plays:

    “Biggins, who for the past 12 years has also directed Sydney’s annual Wharf Revue of the year in politics, hasn’t lost his satirical edge. Australia Day is set in the fictitious Coriole shire, where the committee includes an ambitious Liberal mayor, a Country Women’s Association member, a bigoted builder and an Australian-born Vietnamese school teacher.”

  76. Turtle of WA says:

    Magnets?

  77. Spider says:

    A tax windfall for MAGNETS.

  78. Pecker says:

    Sam…FMD.. what is a mining magnet????

  79. Tony M says:

    Sam, the mining tax wasn’t taking in ANY money, so arguing about how you spend the non-existent tax is just dumb

  80. Mr. Bean made some crack about “Big Magnets”

  81. Shelley says:

    I was confused by the magnets word also. I wondered what he was going on about.

  82. John says:

    Dastiari powerful magnets?

  83. Notafan says:

    Im confused, was the government going to kick in the super contribution?

  84. Turtle of WA says:

    Is this satirist related to David Marr?

  85. Baldrick says:

    Mining magnets or magnates?

  86. Tony M says:

    Haven’t they seen the constant changes in the super laws to take more and more in tax? It IS a con.

  87. Turtle of WA says:

    Evil magnets are stealing money from the poor and killing the planet.

  88. John says:

    Now it gets tricky

  89. Rich says:

    Im confused, was the government going to kick in the super contribution?

    I’ve seriously spent days arguing with people that super isn’t ‘extra’

  90. top Ender says:

    Biggins will blame the USA within what 30 seconds….?

  91. custard says:

    Evil magnets are stealing money from the poor and killing the planet.

    Aahh love it!

  92. Rousie says:

    Looking forward to the manchild waxing lyrical about foreign policy.
    ‘Lets be clear. It’s the push pull complexity factors…’

  93. Cold-Hands says:

    I’ve had enough. Biggins supporting the Islamic State by standing by when innocents are being slaughtered is the last straw.

  94. Tony M says:

    Biggins, you are so full of shit it should be running out of your ears. The Spanish Inquisition!!?? FFS!

  95. Notafan says:

    Does Biggins cwa lady make pumpkin scones?
    If cba shareholders want the ceo to get big bickies that is their right
    I bet Biggins spends a lot of time putting his hand in the taxpayers pocket.

  96. Im confused, was the government going to kick in the super contribution?

    Yeah, I feel your pain.
    The boneheaded stupidity of the Australian population amazes me.

  97. custard says:

    Sam Dastyari could convince grade one or twos maybe. Beyond that he’s lonely.

  98. Tweet: “The only way to solve the middle east is humanitarian intervention”
    FMD

  99. Uh oh says:

    I’m thinking that Sam Dastyari is Labor’s response to Jayme Diaz.

  100. Menai Pete says:

    How come Dastyari’s head is twice as big as the rest of him?

  101. Tony M says:

    They’re not that elusive, Kate – they stopped them with a couple of air strikes.

  102. Notafan says:

    The case is not made no reliable partner on the ground
    Ifccourse not
    Radicalised youth not our fault it sits squarely in the muslim community

  103. top Ender says:

    Tony goes into full interrupt mode!

  104. Shelley says:

    I too have had enough. Going to bed. Good luck with the rest of this drivel Cats.

  105. Turtle of WA says:

    Trotskyist, what do you reckon?

  106. Moonspectacles asks the simplest question in the most boring manner possible. (This is only a 1-hour show sonny, try to keep it simple)

  107. Notafan says:

    Hi Mr el baghdadi let’s talk as soon as you finish shooting those Alawite truck drivers.
    If people could go home we wouldn’t need humanitarian assistance in refugee camps numbnuts.

  108. top Ender says:

    I thought Tony was supposed to be the moderator.

    Can he be left out of Team Australia?

  109. Did I say last week “Most boring episode ever”? How do I hack the Cat archives to remove that reference?
    THIS week is a strong contender for that title.

  110. Turtle of WA says:

    Commie kid!

  111. Notafan says:

    41% LNP was that the guy with the beret?

  112. Rousie says:

    The manchild is a smug cretin.
    The life experience of a gnat

  113. Tony M says:

    Oh, Kim – get over yourself. “Kim, coffee or tea this morning?” “Well, it’s a very complex issue..”

  114. Humpty-Dumpty-head is struggling with the concept of how to argue against cracking down on homegrown Islamic terrorists.

  115. Andrew says:

    Newscorp guy is sinking faster than the Titanic

  116. Sam…FMD.. what is a mining magnet????

    Wotcha use to mine iron??

  117. “It’s complex territory” He’s like my niece’s talking doll, same phrase over & over.

  118. Notafan says:

    Disenfranchised how come so many are from wealthy educated families?
    Is flag auctions no support for is in the broader muslim community in Australia riiight

  119. Turtle of WA says:

    Tweet: How about Team Human?

    What toss. We would still be united by the fact that we are NOT ANIMALS.

  120. Mr. Bean doesn’t want to give up his medda-darta.

  121. Spider says:

    What a card Mr Bean is.

  122. Notafan says:

    I know the answer Sam it’s islam islam islam

  123. top Ender says:

    Sam Dastyari goes into “who’s to blame” mode.

    It must be us.

    Empowering such a cliched wanker word these days.

  124. Mr. Bean wants to “understand” homegrown Islamic terrorists.
    Omg… he wants to empower “local communities”…. riiiight… I’ve seen how THAT works.
    Mr. Bean was born in Iran, just sayin’

  125. Spider says:

    Oh no not bloody moderate Muslim leaders.

  126. Pecker says:

    Sam… simply put you are a goose… you should have stayed behind the scenes with NSW ALP..

  127. Notafan says:

    Moderate islam yeah right

  128. Rousie says:

    The manchild is a motherhooder of the first order
    His schtick is to pepper them with personal anecdotes

  129. hzhousewife says:

    Lets send Sam over to the ME to explain to all the young energetic muslims
    that they shouldn’t be doing what they are doing, we don’t like it !

  130. Turtle of WA says:

    Empowering such a cliched wanker word these days.

    ‘Empower’ has always been a wank word, hasn’t it?

  131. That be a scarf around accent-lady’s neck, or an uninflated life-jacket?

  132. Rich says:

    Did I say last week “Most boring episode ever”? How do I hack the Cat archives to remove that reference?
    THIS week is a strong contender for that title.

    It’s a tough one to call – the ABC have done a fantastic job this year in making nearly every episode unwatchable

  133. Tony M says:

    “Moderate Islam” isn’t heard because it’s silent – and so completely irrelevant.

  134. Turtle of WA says:

    Bean.

  135. Last week may have been as boring as all heck, but at least there was that chick in the red dress presenting her huge boozies for us to stare at.

  136. Rousie says:

    Jones gives Bowen the kiss of death

  137. Tony M says:

    Murdoch probably sacked him after he fell asleep while Williams was talking to him.

  138. Talleyrand says:

    Sorry I have missed the betting and the programs till now; but I couldn’t get my opium pipe lit and I cannot survive Q&A and Medium Swatch without it.

  139. Notafan says:

    Biggins wants the news to be about people going grocery shopping and not bank robbers
    Sorry mate but Australian headchoppers killing innocents and taking sex slaves is newsworthy

  140. Pecker says:

    Yes Steve… agree…and we have not seen or heard from Carpe since that show…Ummm

  141. Rich says:

    Last week may have been as boring as all heck, but at least there was that chick in the red dress presenting her huge boozies for us to stare at.

    Fair call

    Maybe they could have some cheerleaders each time they put on a lefty special? Then we’d all be happy

  142. Leo G says:

    Kim Williams talking about transparency- indecipherable.

  143. Mr Rusty says:

    Barry’s Mediawatch MurdochSatan666 now bleeding into Q&A.

  144. Tony M says:

    “Murdoch elects our leaders?” Sam, if you want more voices, start your own newspaper. No one is stopping you.

  145. Rich says:

    I agree with the dwarf – more people should be forced to read Fairfax

  146. Rousie says:

    The manchild is a one dimensional loon
    Perfect ALP leadership material

  147. Spider says:

    Voices. Sam they have this thing called the Internet now,

  148. top Ender says:

    Someone pick Sam Dastyari up – the ABC have the biggest media coverage in the country.

  149. PeterF says:

    Kimmy got Mummy to ask a question. I’m off to bed, this is absolute crap,worse than last week.Where is the supposed 41 % Coalition. Now they are going full retard on Rupert.I have to agree, Sam has a large head.

  150. Sam Dastyari musta done the big end of 3 seconds of manual labour in his life, to have such a head-to-body size ratio.

  151. Turtle of WA says:

    The only place with a limited number of voices is the ABC?

  152. Rich says:

    News corp is ‘shrill’

  153. Now the whole panel is chortling over what a moron Murdoch is….

  154. Leo G says:

    The fellow who thinks News Corp papers are shrill- didn’t he just say that News lacked the balance found in Pravda?

  155. Ban all political donations. Fine by me. Just be sure this includes all donations of time and expertise.

  156. Rousie says:

    ALP shill

  157. Mr Rusty says:

    ICAC questioner – who the fuck talks like THAT?

  158. Tony M says:

    …and all union donations.

  159. The fellow who thinks News Corp papers are shrill- didn’t he just say that News lacked the balance found in Pravda?

    That is David Marr’s twin brother, and I thought he was making a joke.
    The joke is on me, this pundu seriously believes that Murdoch is more twisted than Pravda. FMD.

  160. Rich says:

    If you ban all political donations, including unions, then stop any taxpayer funds going to them

    Give them a few minutes on the ABC at election time, they don’t need anything else

  161. Leo G says:

    Why not just ban all media advisers?

  162. Rousie says:

    Credlin’s sin was allowing Wells on the show

  163. Whooweeeeeee, did anybody else see Sam Dastyari’s face when Concerto Foreveranti-Wells made oblique reference to clipping corrupt politician’s salaries?

  164. stackja says:

    Liberty Quotes
    Replace the word “Murdoch” with the word “Jew” and that’s exactly the kind of conspiracy theories that existed years ago.
    — Brendan O’Neill

  165. Menai Pete says:

    ICAC is chasing Liberals for breaking a devious Labor Party rule that they enshrined in law with the help of The Greens purely to screw their opponents.
    The ICAC Act 1988 refers to conduct by public officials and employees of public authorities. Candidates for election (who are not already in Parliament) only fall into that category after the declaration of polls.
    So, does the ICAC inquisition have the authority to question or rule on a person’s actions in the period prior to the declaration of polls and has ICAC investigated any losing election candidates for similar offences?

  166. Tony M says:

    Yes, Sam – you were a secretary, you know about dodgy donations….

  167. Rousie says:

    Wasn’t it the manchild who funded Craig Thomsons legal costs.
    Wells is MIA

  168. Mr Rusty says:

    Funny how the left are suddenly interested in banning political donations. Nothing to do with the fact the Unions are about to get shafted is it?

  169. Leo G says:

    Dastardly Sam knows how the Coalition stacks the deck. Watch his hands.

  170. top Ender says:

    Q&A really has had its day if this is the best they can do.

  171. Mr. Bean says he “moved a motion”.
    Did he wash his hands afterward?

  172. John says:

    Why have a federal ICac? The nsw one doesn’t seem to stop corruption

  173. Notafan says:

    I think all political donations should be allowed and in secret.
    Firgetabout equal time on the Abc, it’s meaningless.
    Not when every second of every show is anti conservative right down to local drama and childrens programming

  174. Turtle of WA says:

    How quick did Bean change the subject when ICAC and Federal politicians came up?

  175. Pecker says:

    Sam… due care mate on Federal ICAC…you could end up in the CAC big time

  176. Actually Sam didn’t look all that enthusiastic when ditz-journalist started waving her hands around & suggested a “Federal ICAC”.

  177. Turtle of WA says:

    Next week: Man Bear Pig Awareness

  178. Tony M says:

    teh Science! OMG

  179. Pecker says:

    Err.. I will be not available next week for Q and A… need to watch the peas grow!!

    Why not just ban all media advisers?

    Wendy Bacon’s students would not have a job.

  181. Gee whillikers this show is dull when there isn’t a heavy hitter or two on the panel.

  182. Zulu Kilo Two Alpha says:

    Sam Dastyari musta done the big end of 3 seconds of manual labour in his life, to have such a head-to-body size ratio.

    Reading his biography on Wikpedia, I don’t think he has even done that.

  183. Tweet: How about Team Human?

    Hoe about being excluded by Team Human? There must always be a line that cannot be crossed.

  184. JC says:

    Interesting how they talk about ICAC. Not one single word about the RC into union corruption.

  185. Carpe Jugulum says:

    Stomach Bug – Back next week troops

  186. Bill Thompson says:
