    Brother and ABC sister, both wankers.

    Easy to see why Baird is an EX Premier:

    Why have someone like him when you can vote in something like Andrews?

    Then again, here in Queensland, we Labor (or would if there were any jobs left), under Parlous-chook.

  3. cuckoo

    Just guessing, but if Teddy Roosevelt had been in Andrews’ position, I think he would have gone with the ADF personnel option for hotel quarantine, rather than the rag-tag, me-no-English diversity hires.

  4. Roger

    And it goes for Dan who I know is working his absolute guts out to save lives.

    And being socially inclusive while he does it.

    Why, he’s the very model of a modern politic-ian.

  5. AC

    Who gives a [email protected]#$ what greyhound Mike thinks? He is and always was a pretend conservative.

    And that goes double for the inbred sister!

  6. Dasher

    Once again the ones who suffer no financial set backs to mention, don’t have to live in a claustrophobic flat for 6 weeks have plenty of space to do what they want are all cheering others tough stand which is for all our good after all, we are all in this together………sickening.

  7. Lee

    This dickhead defends Andrews, but doesn’t actually live in Victoria.
    Easy to praise someone for their very heavy-handed actions, if one doesn’t have to live under them.

  8. Bronson

    Mike Baird sold out in Nsw as soon as it got tough he cut and ran for the big money in the banks. Self obsessed narcissist to busys telling everybody else how to live while getting fat on his own virtue. Dish lickers finished mike off he should have stayed away from the track.

  9. Robber Baron

    The power structure must be under real pressure for this insider to praise the tyrant because the talk of revolution is growing by the day.

  10. Mater

    It’s ironic that Baird’s predecessor fell on his sword over a questionable bottle of plonk.
    Compare and contrast that to Chairman Dan’s list of ‘questionables’ over the years (Red Shirt, etc), and now this Covid fiasco.
    No shame, whatsoever.

  11. HT

    I’d take competent leadership putting a 35 hour week over a well meaning (feeling generous) but incompetent / corrupt tosser working 100 hour weeks anyway. 100 hours of incompetence simply makes matters worse as they compound the problems they created.

  12. Roberto

    ‘Working his guts out’: so much effort and yet such catastrophic outcomes. Perhaps Andrews should be doing nothing instead?

  13. Jock

    Im asking this question seriously. Has there ever been the same love in , the other way??

  14. Anonandon

    Better to be smart and lazy than hard working and stupid. The latter group always causes the most problems.

  15. Robbo

    I always thought there was something NQR about Baird and I have now worked out what it is. He is a raving fuckwit who doesn’t know his arse from his elbow and the Liberal Party is well off not having him in any Parliament, State or Federal. He thinks highly of Daniel Andrews. What that proves is that he actually knows precious little about the horrible shambles Victoria is in and who is responsible. Even Andrews says that the buck stops with him but that seems to have escaped the attention of Baird.
    Memo to Baird. People are dying in Victoria from the Chinese virus and that is happening because your hero and his gaggle of misfit Ministers have grossly mismanaged the situation to an extent that many believe is criminal neglect. No other State or Territory is in the same dire situation. No other State or Territory has a political leader as inept, incompetent, devious and mendacious as Andrews and they should thank God for that. Praising Andrews is like giving the vast majority of Victorians the finger you soft leftie prick. Keep your stupid opinions to yourself.

  16. Youngster

    A crisis always brings out someone’s true colours.

    Comrade Dan has been confirmed as a power-hungry, incompetent dictator. He does not have a single bone in his body that errs toward liberty.

  17. sfw

    Substituting ‘hard work’ and ‘trying hard’ for competence seems to be what politics is about. If I had an engineer who worked really hard and did his best to design a bridge that subsequently collapsed killing people I doubt that he would be excused because he really worked and tried hard to design it. In politics that seems ok, in fact it seems better than competence.

  18. Tim Neilson

    Memo to NSW Cats who’ve criticised Victorians (correctly in a majority of cases, admittedly) for tolerating the Hunchback.
    This lamentable doofus was your premier, and he represented a supposedly “conservative” party.
    The problem isn’t confined to south of the Murray.

  19. a happy little debunker

    In lock step with Che Guevara rather than the Rough Riders.

  20. Terry

    ‘Has there ever been the same love in, the other way??’
    What do you mean by ‘the other way??’, Jock?

    These guys are fellow-travelers. Forget the nameplate. It’s a figleaf over their true nature.

    Members of the self-appointed “Elite” of big-government nanny-state control. Authoritarians, Totalitarians; never met a tax, fine, regulation, or ban they haven’t wet-dreamed all over.

    They are simply “better” than the people they were commissioned to “serve” and deserve to become very, very wealthy making such sacrifices for the “little people”.

    Why do we continue to tolerate utter BS from these clowns?

  21. Lee

    Teddy Roosevelt would eat Dictator Dan for breakfast.

  22. sfw

    Xi Jingping has already eaten him, vomited him up and is using him to wipe his arse.

  23. H B Bear

    Chairman Dan and a dose of Covid may still be a better choice than the Lieborals.

    ‘working his guts out’ – brings to mind Kurt von Hammerstein-Equord

    About officers:

    I distinguish four types. There are clever, hardworking, stupid, and lazy officers. Usually two characteristics are combined. Some are clever and hardworking; their place is the General Staff. The next ones are stupid and lazy; they make up 90 percent of every army and are suited to routine duties. Anyone who is both clever and lazy is qualified for the highest leadership duties, because he possesses the mental clarity and strength of nerve necessary for difficult decisions. One must beware of anyone who is both stupid and hardworking; he must not be entrusted with any responsibility because he will always only cause damage

  25. Megan

    That quote is brilliant, duncanm. Brilliant because it’s application is far broader than the military and sums up precisely where we are today.

    And if Dan doesn’t think a salary upwards of half a mill rewards him for all his stupid, hard work then he should quit this morning.

  26. Patty Duke

    Loving the Teddy Roosevelt comparison. This has been posted on FB by Dan’s adoring fanboys and was doing the rounds last week after poor Dan was put under pressure to answer questions at a press conference.
    His fans were outraged because he is doing his best and he is very tired and stressed, dontcha know. Those journalists were apparently following orders from their “masters” (guess who) and were very, very mean.
    Poor Dan!
    It’s funny, but i seem to remember unhinged and deranged outrage from this mob against the PM during the bushfire crisis – no compassion for hurt feelings from these vile haters then.

  27. Tezza

    Working his guts out, producing negative value added.

  28. Beachcomber

    This just in from San Juan Hill: Victoria reaches grim new high of 19 deaths.

    In Covid-1984 all deaths are caused by the plague. No one is considered to have passed away when their time came.

  29. Hay Stockard

    Baird is known for his judgement

  30. Tim Neilson

    Not San Juan Hill – a more apt cavalry charge:

    Forward Red Shirt Brigade
    No NPC’s dismayed
    Not though the sane know
    the Hunchback has blundered
    Journo’s won’t question why
    However many die
    As the death toll gets high
    over two hundred!

    “there is no playbook they give you when you become PM, Premier or Minister”
    There is, actually. It’s called the Constitution.

  32. Kneel

    “Better to be smart and lazy than hard working and stupid.”

    Laziness is underrated.
    Necessity may be the mother of invention, but it’s not an immaculate conception, invention has a father too – and that father is laziness.

  33. Major Elvis Newton

    Brother and ABC sister, both wankers.

    Correct. And 110% oxygen thieves.

    There is, actually. It’s called the Constitution.

    The Vic Constitution basically says:
    “Do what you like. If it’s not in here, then you can change it by yourself.”

    I prefer the name “Efficiency” and their child is called “Productivity.”

    Chairman Dan would like to ban greyhound racing just like Julia Baird’s brother did but he can’t.

    Now that he has totally destroyed the Victorian economy; the turnover tax on gambling is about the only source of revenue left for his sorry excuse of a Government.

  37. Colonel Bunty Golightly

    Imagine what this crisis would have looked like if labor was in power and Albo was pulling the levers! Shudder!

  38. Harpo of Wolli Creek

    I was a taxi driver when Baird instituted compulsory seat belts for taxi drivers. I believe he was also the instigator of compulsory bicycle helmets(a world first!). I think he just gets off on control freakery.

    Yep……this is the same slime bag Mike Baird who forced through council mergers and banned greyhound racing….showing his preference to hobnob and capitulate to the demands of far-left Green inner city progressives, animal activists and the “Animal Justice Party”..with zero engagement with the electorate…and which the NSW Nats were happy to support without blinking an eyelid….and then the Nats were left wondering why the Shooters and Fishers moved in onto traditional Nat territory. When I think of that greyhound ban….I am still gobsmacked with anger..and what did the piece of shit Baird do soon after….because he knew he had made a catastrophic mistake? Faced with the inevitable backlash, he resigned to go to a nice $2 million dollar a year job at NAB..a job which he has since left..probably because he is an incompetent mediocre cretin.

    And as for his untalented sister…the less said.

    “And it goes for Dan, who I know is working his absolute guts out to save lives. Let’s support him as he tries to do the impossible,” he wrote.

    Interesting conundrum there, Mike. If what he is trying to do is impossible, then why is he doing it?

  41. the sting

    Teddy Roosevelt of the Sagamore Hill side of the family before his 50 th birthday had served theRepublican Party as a New York State legislator , the under secretary of the Navy, police commissioner for the city of New York ,United States civil service commissioner , the Governor of New York , Vice President under William Mc Kinley , a Colonel in the US Army and two terms as President of the United States . In addition he wrote nearly 30 books , ran a cattle ranch in the Dakotas and conducted scientific expeditions on four continents . He read 5 books a week and enjoyed hunting , boxing and wrestling . He was a spiritual man who took his faith seriously and for years taught Sunday school in his Dutch Reform Church . He and his wife raised 5 children . .. Source ” Blood on the moon ” Sounds like Daniel Andrews ????

    Harsh but fair.

    Harsh but fair.

    And completely accurate.

  44. Squirrel

    Cunningly outflanking Zali on the left….?

  45. Herodotus

    Even the dad was too left for Howard. Check the history.

  46. I am proud of them.

    And it goes for Dan who I know is working his absolute guts out to save lives.

    Let’s not go nuts.

  47. Ed Case

    Teddy Roosevelt was a wimp and a sissy.
    See Gore Vidal’s many essays for the lowdown on Teddy
    Teddy also fucked up Taft’s bid for a second Term, resulting in the Presidency of the execrable Wilson.
    Baird probably knows about as much American History as Bob Carr, i.e., none, and he was intending to compare Andrews to Teddy’s niece’s husband, a notorious pants man, among other things, who was rumoured to have died of syphilis in the arms of a mistress.
