    But for sheer consistency in being wrong about EVERYTHING, ALL THE TIME, you can’t beat Seccombe.

    Walrus, I am utterly distraught that a majority of Blair readers — nay, Australians — have failed to recognise the grinning Greenfilth idiot is so winning this poll his picture is in the dictionary next to the definition of wrongology.

    You can find the University of Sydney’s ICT Policy right here.

    The ABC has a similar policy re Twitter. Yet its employees spend their days on their slagging off everyone and no-one cares.

    Same with Uni’s, or are we to believe that all those raging leftist academics all keep their email accounts separate?
    I don’t know why you’re defending the Uni so vigorously, spurr – who is probably a luvvie anyway was hung out to dry because he’s helping Tony Abbott.

    It’s simple.

    Question for historians:

    Would Mrs Kneebone’s tryst be the most expensive root in the history of Commonwealth spending?

    Not by a long shot.

    Sir Les Patterson was illustrating how these things work many years ago.

    $15 or 20 grand? Pshaw. Wait till you get to the European trips where the hotel rooms alone cost a couple of grand apiece per night, and only one of them is slept in. Not counting the first class airfares and all the rest.

    Nova should have (however improbably) described him as her personal assistant (thanks, Sir Les), researcher, chief of staff, trip co-ordinator, or emergency flower arranger, and billed it all to DFAT.

    But yes, the allies certainly did target civilians at various times in WW2 with the intention of demoralizing the enemy. Are you saying they were terrorists?

    FFS. That was a war against one of the greatest evils to face humanity, barbarism of the first degree. The west having decided that they were at war, fought with whatever they had their disposal and (fortunately) they won.
    Lesson1 – If you are going to fight for your very survival, don’t fight by gentleman’s rules.

    Yes, Tom, he is an idiot.
    But he is a niche market boutique idiot.
    The others are mass-market, mega-star, 17 semi trailers in the tour entourage, super-ijjitts.

    Meanwhile, over at ther Blair Failbat poll:

    Is that really Phillippa? It is brilliant.

    Senile Old Guy has very capably demolished most of your arguments. As for ‘stealing and dishonesty’, well, I don’t believe that I used these words. I was talking about the unethical use of public resources. Whether that is ‘dishonest’ in the narrow sense of the term is a matter of opinion. However section 5(a) of the University of Sydney’s use of ICT resource policy – a document, BTW, that is remarkably similar to the policies of most APS agencies on the use if IT resources – states:

    ‘The University will not tolerate its ICT Resources being used in a manner that is
    harassing, discriminatory, abusive, rude, insulting, threatening, obscene or
    otherwise inappropriate.’

    Maybe I don’t have the ‘context for what Spurr wrote, but from what I’ve seen of it, I’d say he has a case to answer in terms of that section.

    As for the University being only partially funded by the taxpayer, well, it received a total of $725.9 million of Commonwealth money from all sources in 2013. That’s a lot of public resources, enough, at any rate, to make a taxpayer like myself to be concerned that it is being spent ethically.

    I don’t know why you’re defending the Uni so vigorously, spurr – who is probably a luvvie anyway was hung out to dry because he’s helping Tony Abbott.

    It is highly likely that Spurr was targeted for political reasons, although I do not discount the possibility of some personal payback.

    But people keep defending him using arguments that are (in my view) wrong. It was not correspondence between 2 people; there were up to 8 on the emails available. He is not in the clear because it was private correspondence because some of his actions are fairly clearly contrary to the university ICT policy.

    It is certainly fair to note that others have probably got away with worse but that is no defence.

    And using the ABC as an example? Really?

    But a new fred beckons.

    If that’s Philippa, well played .

    Ask yourself which person will be seriously sanctioned if they are found to be lying?

    I don’t follow, they’re both black and 1 is a member of the ALP so, neither?

    I wonder if his parents are proud?
    They are, yes but in keeping with Arab victimology practice, they are blaming the Government.
    I just loved the bit from the Ginger Jihadi’s Mum – “ASIO let him go so that they could track him in order to locate ISIS centers”. I got a run by the TES 63 mob, unfortunately including the Oz in a glancing manner. And Dad lives in Lebanon but there is nothing of interest in that.
    My tattooed hairdresser saw it all on The Project reckoned that it was “like – well they would wouldn’t they – them Federal Cops – me Son hates um”.

    Spurr!

    I’m surprised this is still going.

    Spurr may have done the wrong thing but I’m amadant he has been denied procedural fairness and equal treatment before the law or by laws of an organisation.

    So, European Moslems are killing dogs because the are “offensive to – blah blah blah”.
    Good one boys, you have crossed the line.
    Europeans tolerate murder, rape, mutilation, fraud etc. They are used to that.
    But touch their dogs….
