    The BBC describes Tony Abbott

    The pommy left have been doing hysterical hysterics and throwing their own bodily excretions in every direction over Tony Abbott. Some lefty must’ve looked up his wiki entry.

    ‘Wokies’ who call Tony Abbott homophobic are ‘attacking his religion’ claims Dan Hannan (3 Sep)

    Former Conservative MEP Daniel Hannan said Tony Abbott was a “good and generous man” who had worked “tirelessly” for Australia. His vote of confidence comes amid controversy surrounding plans for the UK Government to hand a senior trade role to Mr Abbott despite concerns about his attitude towards women and homosexuality.

    Zero coverage that he has three gorgeous daughters and a lesbian sister, who he campaigns for.

    I’m hoping that the Tories will show some spine.

    Cabinet ministers back former Australian PM Tony Abbott over post-Brexit trade role (4 Sep)

    Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said: “I have real concerns about Tony Abbott and I don’t think he’s the right person for the job. If I was prime minister, I wouldn’t appoint him.”

    And Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said Mr Abbott’s coronavirus views are “deeply offensive and wrong” and he is not fit to be a trade envoy.

    But Health Secretary Matt Hancock said the ex-prime minister is an “expert in trade” and said he does not believe Mr Abbott is homophobic or misogynistic, adding: “He has a huge amount of experience.”

    If Starmer and Sturgeon don’t like him then he has started well!

    None of the talking heads – or UK pollies like Starmer, or Sturgeon – opposing his appointment to the Board of Trade have any actual experience of Abbott outside of tabloid media reporting.

    Interesting that the key qualifications for international trade now includes an enthusiasm for homosexuality.

    Kind of highlights the strategic problems the UK faces.

    Been looking at some vids of police brutality and over reaction.

    It’s really just Zimbardo’s Stanford experiment in real life but on steroids…

    https://www.simplypsychology.org/zimbardo.html

    The Police are feeling more and more hated and threatened and are over-reacting accordingly. They have no support from the Politicians – who are abusing them and the Police know it but are powerless and just need to follow orders… which drives the public resentment of them. Zero self esteem (Self hate + actual hate from those they are meant to serve & protect) which drives the power over reaction to get some self esteem back. Be an inspiration nteresting psychological analysis one day.

    Needs more than that, broken up into independent units covering shires with elected police chiefs.

    Also serves as a circuit breaker for unpopular laws that our cretinous politicians foist on us. Elected police chiefs won’t get re-elected if they enforce bad / unpopular laws.

    I see the Victorian DPP is seeking disclose of internal communications in the media organisations involved in the contempt proceedings over the Pell suppression order.

    What happened to the principle of the sanctity of journalism, which prompted Wallington to bend over backwards to protect her Jon Faine Show costar Milligan from Richter’s attempts to question her about the so-called sources of her so-called information?

    I see also that Nettle J is to retire from the High Court in December. If the replacement is to be a Victorian, it will have to be from outside Victoria’s ALP-stackef courts.

    Nettle should, so I understand, have got the job of president of the Victorian Court of Appeal in 2005 – he was the best qualified Supreme Court judge – but Hulls passed him over for loudmouthed ALP leftist activist Maxwell. Howard righted the injustice by appointing Nettle to the HC.

    Wallace is a complete anti-Trumper. The far left FOX News host ruined FOX News Sunday and made it unwatchable. Wallace attacked President Trump in December saying, “I believe that President Trump is engaged in the most direct sustained assault on freedom of the press in our history.”

    Kristen Welker from NBC is a member of the White House Press Corps, a horribly hostile Trump-hating group that thought it was funny to ridicule the president’s White House Spokeswoman on her looks at their annual dinner while she sat on the stage.

    Allyl sulfoxide in onions is very closely related to the active ingredient of garlic, allicin. When you eat garlic you get garlic breath, which is quite an exotic chemical mix.

    The major volatile compounds responsible for garlic breath are allyl methyl sulfide, allyl methyl disulfide, allyl mercaptan, diallyl disulfide, dimethyl disulfide and methyl mercaptan, along with minor amounts of dimethyl selenide.[1][2][3] Various other sulfur compounds are also produced when allicin in garlic is broken down in the stomach and liver. Out of the many compounds, allyl methyl sulfide (AMS) does not break down quickly and remains in the body in significant amounts hours after consumption, resulting in an odor that can last for hours — or even for as long as two days.[4] AMS is the only one of the garlic-derived organosulfur compounds detectable in the lungs or urine, as well as the mouth, which means that AMS is reabsorbed into the blood stream and travels to other organs for excretion – namely the lungs, kidneys and skin.[5][6] Anaerobic bacteria, which do not metabolize oxygen, are a main source for producing Volatile Sulfur Compounds (VSC) which cause bad breath.

    Onions are big in India.

    India Isn’t Letting a Single Onion Leave the Country (NYT, Oct 2019)

    NEW DELHI — Truckloads of onions are being turned back at the Indian border. Officials are threatening raids to prevent onion smuggling. India’s neighbors, reliant on hundreds of millions of pounds of the crop, are reeling from the news: Not a single onion can leave India.

    Hit first by drought and then by monsoon rains, India suffered an onion shortage that nearly tripled the price in recent months, edging close to a third rail of politics in many countries: the national diet.

    In India, onions — so important to the cuisine all around the country and across South Asia — are central to foreign policy and domestic harmony alike. Indian governments have been brought down over inflated food prices before.

    “Without onions, food is incomplete and colorless,” lamented Charu Singh, a researcher in New Delhi. “I’ve had to change my entire cooking style.”

    What a disaster!

    BoN – I used to swallow a whole clove of raw garlic morning and night when I was young and got occasional acne cysts. It cleared them up in a few days, whereas untreated they could last for 2 or 3 weeks.

    Job Advert for ‘Happy’ Hair Stylists Banned, ‘Discriminatory’ Against Miserable People

    A government-run recruitment agency told a salon that they could not post a job advertisement looking for a “happy” hairstylist because the word was “discriminatory” against unhappy people.

    Alison Birch from AJ’s Unisex Hair Salon in Stroud, Gloucestershire, claimed that Jobcentre Plus, part of the Department for Work and Pensions, had contacted her after applying to post an advert with them that stated: “This is a busy, friendly, small salon, so only happy, friendly stylist need apply.”

    On Thursday, Mrs Birch told The Mirror that the government agent had called her to say that they could not run the advert because the word “happy” was “discriminatory”. At first believing the phone call to be a prank, the experienced businesswoman was astounded once the caller offered to read her the lengthy rules about discrimination.

    He allegedly said: “Should we change the word in case somebody thinks that they can’t apply for the job because they are not a happy person?”

    “But I only want happy people,” Ms Birch recalled telling the man from the job shop.

    He allegedly responded: “As I said, it is a discriminatory word and you are not allowed to use it, somebody who is not happy will be discriminated against.”

    The salon owner then pulled the advert from Jobcentre Plus after refusing to change the wording.

    Mrs Birch said: “I just can’t see how it is discrimination to anybody. Everybody is so politically correct these days.

    “But he insisted he could not list the advert on their job site with that word on it.

    “I told him I was perfectly happy with the use of the word ‘happy’, and that he could just take it off their site and I’d find somewhere else to list it.”

    ‘Zero feeling of any need to apologise for not supporting any form of violence towards police and army reservists including at border crossings and involving Kenworth trucks back in March.’

    Mmmm. Yep.

    It went from ramming poor old Trevor from Coles in his Army Reserve uniform and jacks of various States with Kenworths on state borders in March to martial law in April. Coincidentally, this was when he branded every citizen in the country a coward for not commemorating Anzac Day by attending a cenotaph, which he’d hijacked for political purposes.

    May brought us the Constitution, which he’d only just remembered even though he’d been carrying a copy in his truck for years. This also coincided with increasing references to the word ‘sovereign’, ‘travelling’ and ‘contracts’ along with the introduction of Random capital Letters in every second sentence.

    This went on in one form or another until August, until the topic du jour was agreement with the proposition that all Australians should stand and fight, and if necessary fall in the Great Cause of Something. This only applied to other people, primarily Victorians, which was and is a place this bloke refuses to go to take part in the almost-communal struggle.

    At the end of August, though, it petered out with:

    ‘Socialism has sat me on my arse.’

    Needs more than that, broken up into independent units covering shires with elected police chiefs.

    I see where you are going, rick, but I am not sure.

    I mean, the direct election of the local sheriff in the US is also fraught at times.
    Honestly, I don’t know what the answer is.
    A total disconnect between politics and enforcement is the answer.
    No-one who has served as an advisor or staffer for a politician can take a Plod job (eg Steve Bracks c.o.s. goes to work for Ashton).
    Jailable offence for undisclosed and improper contact between Plod – Politicians – Judicial officers (including lawyers).

    Yes, it is fraught. It can go bad in a particular jurisdiction. However, the chances of it going bad in all jurisdictions at once?! That’s what we’ve got now!

    I also like the democratic aspect to it:

    The bloke in country NSW who arrested a known pedo trying to break into his kids room used an unloaded .22 to effect the arrest. He was charged with a firearms offence, had all his guns confiscated, then they realised his wife had guns, so the confiscated hers.

    How long do you think the piece of shit police chief that presided over this travesty would last if he was elected?

    If I remember rightly, one of the greatest fighting generals of all time, Stonewall Jackson, was rather partial to eating onions.

    Not that he was eating one at the time he met his demise. In fact it was going rather well up until then:

    Setka has decided that Dan Xi-Man is dead man walking.

    If true, this is encouraging. From a site called Metro:

    ‘Australian captain Aaron Finch has confirmed his team will not take the knee in a gesture of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement before their series against England.’

    The bitterness on display by those who have been shown to be not real bright in hind sight has them building on each other’s narratives and exaggerations against the person who called it right from the start.

    The importance of knowing how to hot wire a tank:

    East European style: wear a suit and tie and a long, fawn-coloured or grey raincoat to the protest. Men only.

    “…Victoria Police rejected his account and said Mr Penny’s race was not a factor when he was stopped — but said the officers’ bodycams were not turned on because of the “dynamic nature” of the incident.

    “The police members involved in this incident were not aware of the man’s ethnicity until it was later confirmed after they had a verbal interaction with him,” a police statement said…”

    Not sure if Melbourne is as dystopian as A Clockwork Orange, but it’s worth comparing police forces:

    Let’s see what happens if Setka really does turn in Andrews. For a start, you can bet that all the criminal charges the police and the OPP have suppressed since Andrews’ election will suddenly be reactivated.

    ‘Australian captain Aaron Finch has confirmed his team will not take the knee in a gesture of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement before their series against England.’

    Here’s Finch:

    But Finch revealed the two teams will not be taking a knee – and wants to promote education instead.

    Speaking ahead of Australian cricket’s first match since Floyd’s death, Finch, 33, said: “The education around it is more important than the protest.

    “I have spoken to Eoin and we are not going to do specific gestures like it has happened in the past.

    “For us, we are really proud to play a game where it is celebrated all around the world and anyone can play it.

    “It doesn’t matter what race, what religion, what nationality you are from. Cricket is a game for everyone and I am really proud about that.”

    Let’s just hope that the “education” isn’t worse than taking the knee. We’ll see …

    Let’s see what happens if Setka really does turn in Andrews.

    Not sure what power Setka has, but I think what LL was alluding to is Setka has sniffed the wind that Dickhead Dan’s days are numbered.

  135. Armadillo

    Mr Penny is a member of the Australian Workers’ Union, and its Victorian secretary, Ben Davis, said the alleged incident was “appalling and yet far too common”.

    I’m calling bullshit on this story.
