It’s that Dan is really really stupid that makes it so much worse

See what they’re saying about us around the world: Australia Is A Full Scale Pilot Test For The New World Order

Several journalists and content creators have noticed that Australia looks like the most totalitarian police state that has existed in recent history.  It has become a full-scale pilot test for the elitists to see how well they can implement the New World Order.

Australians have been subjected to some of the most horrendous basic human rights and dignity violations during this entire scamdemic.

“These guys know full well what they are doing. They are psychopaths, but they aren’t stupid.” 

I can agree with most of that but not all. They are far-left totalitarians, psychopaths perhaps, but on that last point, I don’t agree even slightly. When it comes to Daniel Andrews, on top of everything else, he really is stupid. Along with so much else that is wrong with him, Daniel Andrews is the thickest, densest politician I have ever come across, and there’s a lot of competition specially at the moment. That he never discusses or explains anything is how he has been from the start. This was from the weekend: Labor unrest grows as Daniel Andrews botches crisis management. In fact, Daniel Andrews has botched every single thing he has done. He has not had a single success in anything he has done since becoming premier. Try to find anything he has achieved with all the billions he has gone through. Victoria was already bankrupt even before the virus arrived. Dwell on this from the link.

Andrews is a political dictator who comes across as a strong leader. But, sadly, he is not a chief executive who weighs up the view of many groups before making a decision. Like all dictators Andrews relies more on his gut instincts than advice from others. Business people who attend the Andrews advice committees say he rarely listens. In the latest Victorian aid package the payroll tax deferral will scare the banks. Prior to COVID-19, the best example of Andrews disregard for commercial outcomes was in the infamous gas bans where somehow gas that did not require fracking got mixed up with the fracking bans. The fact that the bans on Victoria’s immense non fracked gas reserves sent gas prices and energy costs through the roof just didn’t register.

He is too stupid to know what he is doing, and the more he gets wrong the further into the mud he goes. He cannot explain, he never takes responsibility, he never defends. He never discusses. He just shuts up because he is basically a blank space between the ears.

What frustrates ALP members is that they now know that provided a series of co-ordinated alternative strategies are introduced there is absolutely no need for prolonged harsh restrictions that will send the state into recession for many years. The alternative strategies have been successful in other states and will work in Victoria. But as so often happens with [stupid people] once they are headed in a direction nothing will change them.

Others, of course, assume Andrews is able to sift these different points of view, analyse them and come to a rational conclusion based on the evidence. The reality is that he has no capacity to evaluate anything said to him. Dumb as an ox, but stubborn and a thug to go along with his arrogance.

There is the old political rule, “never apologise, never explain.” Andrews of course never does either, because so far as apologies go he will not, and as for explanations, he cannot. It may well be that others across the world are looking at the example he has set as a road to totalitarian rule, but it’s not because he’s some kind of genius who has beaten a new path to dictatorial rule. He has blundered into where we find him and ourselves through sheer stupidity. He is wrecking Victoria, and indeed the entire Australian economy. He has turned the police force into a Gestapo. He has made Melbourne a place of ridicule across the world. It’s a tragedy at every turn. Just don’t expect any serious explanation from Andrews for anything he does since he has none. He is the stupidest political leader we have ever seen and we will pay for this for many years to come.

    Labor unrest grows as Daniel Andrews botches crisis management.

    Stupid? Maybe. But as cunning as a shithouse rat!

  3. Cynic of Ayr

    Hang on a minute.
    Daniel Andrews is ONE man.
    All he is, is Premier.
    He is Premier at the pleasure of the Government, or in this case, the Labor Party.
    Now, unless he has pictures of every single parliamentarian on his side of the fence, involving pigs and lingerie, the rest of them are totally in agreement.
    Forget Andrews. He’s a figure head. His strings are being pulled from somewhere else.
    Now, Steve had a nice rant about Andrews’ stupidity. But, someone is allowing him to be stupid.
    There are plenty of stupid Parliamentarians. Exhibit Sarah Two-Dads. Can anyone imagine this stupid woman being Premier of Victoria?
    No. Victoria isn’t in this position because one person is stupid. Victoria is in this position because millions of people are stupid, and someone has talked them into it.
    You have to look further than parliament. Look to militant Unions. Fire fighters. Nurses. Teachers. CFMMEU. ACTU. Academics. University lecturers, All these people, thousands of them with a socialist agenda, willing to do whatever it takes. They’re in charge, not Andrews.
    Ya know, old Adolf took control of an entire Country with words alone, before he cemented it with a Policing Force.
    Think about it.

  4. They’re not stupid. They’re evil. And evil when engaged in its diabolical plans looks irrational to the logical observer.

  6. Karabar

    What if old X1 Jinping had offered him untold riches if he can bankrupt Australia?
    Would he be stupid then? Or just a plain Jane evil Commie?

  7. Crossie

    He has turned the police force into a Gestapo.

    Andrews did not turn the police into anything, they were Gestapo to begin with and are enjoying themselves immensely. With the proliferation of all the devices they know they are being filmed yet they continue behaving like monsters.

    What Andrews and Cornelius are doing is providing cover for them, not a negative word from those two yet similar events in the US are met with widespread official condemnation. And as somebody has mentioned, there is no federal condemnation for their behaviour either yet ScoMo is the stupid one not realising he will be blamed when the media decide enough is enough and need a politician’s head.

  8. 132andBush

    I think what we’re seeing in Australia and particularly Victoria is the natural result of endless “networking” get togethers, jobs for mates and diversity hiring.

  9. gary

    Speaking of stupid lefties, this article provides the argument that good forest management prevents mega fires.

    Report after each bush fire since the 1930’s has recommended increased burnoffs to reduce the severity of bush fires. Lefty politicians, including Dopey Dan, have refused to implement the recommendations and as a consequence, last summer there was a massive bush fire that reportedly killed a billion native animals.

    Proper forest management must be implemented in Australia to prevent further mega fires and the deaths of native animals that occurs during these mega fires.

  10. Rabbi Putin

    Among many other good points made, I beleive Daniel Andrews was taught to hate his country and be ashamed of its past from a young age. This is the same with many in Gen X and Y and occurred vía school and pop culture. Daniel Andrews was a big fan of Midnight Oil in his youth. Everything emanates from that. The boomer cultural left carry a lot of blame and they should all be investigated for links to CCP

  11. calli

    Dan is not stupid.

    Rowe (Tom’s toons, OT) gets it.

  12. Entropy

    He isn’t stupid. He seems to be a sociopath just like most politicians that choose politics as a “career”.

    Whatever he is doing makes perfect sense for him, his goals, and what he is prepared to do to reach those goals.

    You just don’t understand what he wants, or why anyone would have such wants.

  13. Shy Ted

    He’s not stupid, he’s an ideologue. A through and through communist, impotent in the hurly burly of the real world but delivering to his cohort criminals in spades using other people’ money. Of course he’s a psychopath, he doesn’t care about the adverse consequences. One of many politicians who should never be safe going out in public ever again. If Aussies had the bawls.

  14. mh

    He has made Melbourne a place of ridicule across the world.

    Fact check: TRUE

  15. The Quiet Farmer

    He is not stupid, he has single minded determination to achieve his goals. For a far left politician there is only one; total control and absolute power, nothing else matters. “Poor fellow , my country “

  16. notafan

    Loughnane called him ‘highly intelligent ‘

    I’m not sure he’s either.

    Six years to complete Bachelor of Arts at Monash.

    He’s certainly skilled at the art of getting his own way. And the Labor party chose him for his qualities and gave him his career. He loves all the things a Christian gentleman despises.

    As for blaming the education system.

    Despots are an historical reality, it couldn’t always have been the education system.

  17. flyingduk

    And the biggest concern is that natural forces (season, Vitamin D, humidity, UV, population chronic disease burden), not ‘lockdowns’, however strict, determine the spread of respiratory viruses. Every other state that has not had its ‘Victorian experience’ is going to go through it next winter.

  18. Steve

    Agree is a full scale test.

    Although they might get a few rude surprises when Australians have finally had enough.

    Australians had a particular method of jungle fighting in WW2 that shows you they arent squeamish.

    I abhor violence but i suspect there some who wont be….

    Interesting times.

  19. Crossie

    What I find extraordinary is how so many positions have flipped, for one the supposedly anarchist left is now in favour of police while the conservatives are repulsed by the police actions.

  20. Steve

    Cynic of Ayr

    Agreed. This whole thing has been planned.
    He is not smart enough to do all this by himself. The people behind him need to be exposed though…the main show hides them from view.

    The funders also need to be found.

    He is determined, but they needed a thick headed determined battering ram, not a thinker.

    Covid is the key to inlocking global UN NWO controlled tyranny on us all.

  21. Rohan

    In fact, Daniel Andrews has botched every single thing he has done. He has not had a single success in anything he has done since becoming premier. Try to find anything he has achieved with all the billions he has gone through. Victoria was already bankrupt even before the virus arrived. Dwell on this from the link.

    It wasn’t just his current stint as Premier either. Remember the ER waiting times where people were waiting over 24 hours on gurneys to be admitted as a patient, when he was health minister?

    Remember how he told the bureaucrats to fudge the figures so he wouldn’t look bad but the front line ER docs blew the whistle?

    Remember how he never addressed the root cause of the problem and it only got better after the LNP won in 2010?

    Because he can’t solve problems. But he has rat cunning, is a master in the art of bullying, obfuscation and lying his arse off to cover for his lack of intelligence and practicality and common sense.

    He is the ultimate example of the Dunning-Kruger effect.

  22. Crossie

    Proper forest management must be implemented in Australia to prevent further mega fires and the deaths of native animals that occurs during these mega fires.

    Here is an opportunity to make ads aimed at kids pleading for controlled back burning to save the animals. The ad should include lots of images of almost burn animals from last summer’s fires. The greenies use lies to scare kids so why don’t we use the truth for the same purpose.

    This is a job for ScoMo from advertising.

  23. yarpos

    I notice that he is still banging on about “cases” and throwing out the ongoing Euro increases as a scare.

    He doesnt note of course that the Euro increases have come without a ramp up in deaths, and he never ever mentions Sweden.

  24. Mother Lode

    Andrews is a political dictator who comes across as a strong leader.

    He comes across as a strong leader as long as he looks like he is dealing with an emergency.

    People in Victoria have been pummeled from all sides with stories of how they are in straits most dire.

    In other states – certainly NSW – where the scare has worn thin, as we come out of lockdown and fear recedes we feel we can afford to wonder what the hell that was all about, the Victorian situation is clearly absurd.

    When Dan starts treating more mundane matters in the same iron-fisted way then his dictatorial nature will become manifest.

    But all around the nation the elites have no trouble with what Dan is doing, because they believe ‘ordinary people’ are stupid and wrapped in a childlike naivete. And, as with a child, a responsible parent must err on the side of caution, must be stern, set strict boundaries, and be ready to punish.

    Even in the odd instance where the child is right, since a child cannot be trusted to understand why they were right and cannot be relied upon to do the right thing next time.

  25. notafan

    There are people on Twitter constantly thanking Dan for keeping them safety and healthy.

    It really is quite bizarre.

  26. HT

    FWIW I think Andrews is both as stupid and blunt as a sackful of hammers. That’s why the Labor Party put him in as leader, to appeal to Labor supporters who like stupid on steroids, and also so the Party could manipulate him. The bit they got wrong was Andrews particularly strong mix of pride/arrogance/cruelty with healthy dose of sociopathy.

    It (seriously) would not surprise me to learn one day he abuses his family. He has all the 🚩

    not stupid. They’re evil.

    Indeed. Dan is a malevolent killer. Every day he deliberately withholds medication to ensure additional Wuhan deaths to maintain fear among the people. Fear is his power. The daily nursing home victims are in addition to the babies.

    No he is not stupid even if it feels cathartic to say so.
    He is smart, stubborn, ruthless, ideological, determined and so sure of his path that it gives him a clear conscience to vilify, sideline, emasculate and crush all his opponents.
    So. Much. Worse.

  38. H B Bear

  40. Hay Stockard

    Where does VicPol recruit it’s goons from? Do they go round youth services looking for psychopaths? Are violent criminals offered a choice between jail or the joes? They are hardly human. More like jackals.
    As for Dan Tse Tung, he is brilliant. He is succeeding in his desire to change Australia into a template from 1984. No wrongthink for you lot.
    I blame the parents and the sissyfying effects of aerial ping pong.

  41. Bushkid

    OK, so let’s assume Andrews is exactly as you say, the stupidest politician we’ve ever had.

    Why doesn’t the Vic labor government, the rest of the labor MPs down there, ditch the silly bastard and get on with managing things properly?
    Why don’t the rest of the MPs in their parliament move to unseat the labor government?
    Why doesn’t their governor move to unseat him?

    OK, maybe the rest of them are equally stupid, maybe the governor is in his pocket or politically aligned with him, but I’d bet it’s more likely to be factional warfare and political stupidity that stops them.

    In the meantime, Andrews is dictating that businesses are closed while state “public servants” are fully employed and getting a pay rise, destroying the state economy, deterring sick people from accessing medical care, his goon squads are behaving like the goons they are, arresting peaceful protestors and pregnant women daring to sit on a bench for a few minutes while out taking their “allowed” hour of exercise.

    I agree the man presents as totally vacant between the ears, but his tactics have been full on unionist/socialist/communist totalitarian, and I don’t believe that’s unintended. It’s him. That’s what he is.

    Whether he’s painted himself into a corner through sheer stupidity or he’s exactly where he wants to be and is doing exactly what he intends, he needs to be ejected and if necessary, his entire government with him. This situation cannot be allowed to go on, either for Victorians or the rest of Australia.

    It’s not that the same old Victorians are voting differently. It’s that a new, different set of Victorians are voting differently to the old Victorians. And we who were born and bred here suffer.

    He probably knew the deal when he was signing.

  46. dasher

    The problem is we the people and in the first instance the press have let this man get by with his histrionics. The opposition is only slightly better than the rabble at the last election. This is a Labor state and the coalition have to be good to toss this fool out. I predict the looneys will ensure he is re elected and on it will go. Of course by that time Victoria will be broke and we the Australian taxpayer will be paying for his mistakes. They need a pragmatist like Kennet urgently, unfortunately I see no one on the liberal side of this calibre.

  47. PB

    Victoria’s modern demographic knows that Labor is the Party of free stuff.

  48. HT

    And a shooting just now in Victoria. I used to give VICPOL the benefit of the doubt, but not anymore. I need to be convinced they weren’t just trigger happy thugs doing what trigger happy thugs do.

    What has become of our Australia?

    I don’t believe a stupid person could have risen as high as Andrews. He is, at least, clever and cunning to navigate through to the top job. He has that other characteristic of success which is focus/ obsession. Whilst this have served him well in routine circumstances, he is unable to deal with unfamiliar situations. I think he he imposing the restrictions with the knowledge the virus will die down anyway. He will then stand, like a modern day Churchill, to claim victory. The relief that it is over (suggested spin is “now let’s move forward and rebuild Victoria” or “I’m focussed on getting Victoria back to normal after this terrible invisible killer”) will distract from investigating whether it was the correct response.

  50. Roger

    I disagree, Steve.

    Andrews is not stupid.

    He is of above average intelligence by today’s standards. He has a BA, majoring in Classics and Politics. Granted, that is not what it used to be, by a long shot, but stupid people don’t earn such degrees, even today. There is real work and intelligence required, even today.

    No doubt it was during his studies that Andrews came across the work of Macchiavelli. He has certainly learned well from him, particularly how to deflect blame for one’s decisions onto others. This he mixes with with the Marxist drivel that is de riguer that is taught in universitiy Arts departments today.

    No, Andrews is not stupid. He is, as I’ve written from the start here, well before covid, Australia’s most subversive premier.

  51. Karabar

    I wonder if this judgement will assist in a legal challenge here?
    https://www.zerohedge.com/political/pa-governors-covid-19-restrictions-unconstitutional-rules-federal-judge
    I suspect not, since it is a decision based on the American constiution and not ours.

  52. HT

    BTW, the fact there was VICPOL shooting was entirely predictable to anybody paying attention to the Stasi behaviours when combined with Andrews single handed corruption of the mental health of Victorians by his overreach for what, almost six continuous imprisonment of Victoria.

    A clear observation reveals that any viral epidemic follows a Gompertz curve.
    It is evident that the lockdowns and restrictions imposed by governments around the World have not had the slightest impact on this natural phenomenon.
    What is indeed unfortunate is that when this is all over, the Andrews and the Palace Chooks and the Slomos will jump up and say “see, we fixed it with all of this extraordinary power so we will just have to maintain it”. There really are situations in which the best sollution is to do nothing.

    I have a question.

    Is there anybody remaining in the Labor Party in Victoria who has any sense of right and wrong and who understands that Daniel Andrews is not only destroying Victoria but also destroying the Labor Party?

    If such a person does exist then I ask what are you doing to stop the lunacy that has been launched by this mad bastard? Are you prepared to do something or are you just going to stand to one side and let this moron ruin your State and the lives of its citizens?

    He spent all of six whole years at Monash studying for his B.A. degree, and then despite his qualification, Macca’s wouldn’t give him a job, so he had to become Chi-Com Labor Premier of Mogadishu-By-The-Yarra and professional brown-nose to the C.F.M.M.E.U. and to Xi Jinping instead as a consolation prize.

    No wonder he is so angry and hateful at the world and now leads a bunch of violent A.L.P. head-stomping, head-kicking, choke-holding, “George-Floyding”, Gestapo-types in their daily thuggish dealings with mere taxpayers, housewives and the mentally ill.

    I wonder if Deadly Dan the Chi-Com Man’s C.H.O., Brett ‘Mutton-Done-Up-As-Scam’ could inform us of precisely how long the recent practice of violently kicking or repeatedly stomping on the heads of mentally ill people, has been the recommended therapeutic treatment for people with mental problems in Mogadishu-By-The-Yarra?

    Do other States and jurisdictions follow this highly unusual (some would say: “Batshit Crazy”) therapeutic technique? Did the SS or the Gestapo ever have much success in the use of this treatment of the mentally ill?

    Is this treatment done under C.H.O. advice; Deadly Dan/Labor Party advice or “Get Pell Squad” advice?

    Is there a record of its efficacy as a treatment?

    Is it covered by Medicare?

  65. Sinclair Davidson

    Steve – I think you are allowing your hatred of the man to blind yourself as to his political genius.

    Not a chance. In a couple of years he’ll get an AO or similar for heroic service to we the people. The whole lot of them will nominate each other – Sutton, the pubic admins, docs, nurses etc etc.

  70. A H

    I’m pretty sure D.Andrew’s life is going to become a world of misery once he falls from grace. I can’t imagine many restaurants in Melbourne admitting him as a patron… they’re all losing 10s or 100s of thousands of dollars, or otherwise going bust, so I’m pretty sure Mr. Andrews won’t be too welcome. I doubt anyone in small business would accept him as a customer, would anyone from Jim’s Mowing, for example, be willing to mow his lawn? Probably not. Further to that, he’s going to need a pretty decent security detail for the rest of his life… the instant he appears out of doors the hue and cry will be raised.

    Protests are banned for now. But sooner or later the restrictions will end and then I can easily imagine half a million or more people marching for D.Andrews to resign.

    The funny thing is, he has plenty of outs. He could easily revise his roadmap to be more in-line with NSW and no one is going to complain about it. At this point he seems pretty much insistent on sticking with his own plan just for the sake of saying “ner ner ner, I stuck to my plan even though people didn’t want me to”. It’s like he actually thinks people are going to care if he goes back on what he said… he really is living in a narrow bubble, he is more concerned about how people perceive him than the damage he is doing to people… but people don’t actually care about him at all, they just want him to stop messing with their lives.

  71. Louis

    At the end of the day. Dan will leave office, with no consequences. He’ll still get his pension and be appointed to some board.

    The rot in Victoria is perpetual now. The hacks will keep employing more hacks and implementing more leftist nonsense. The useful idiots will keep cheering it on.

    ‘It’s not that the same old Victorians are voting differently. It’s that a new, different set of Victorians are voting differently to the old Victorians. And we who were born and bred here suffer.’

    And yet there were huge swings to Labor in places like Melbourne’s eastern seaside suburbs. In Mordialloc, there was an 11% 2PP swing to Labor.

    This area used to be solid middle class white Australian. There must have been a massive, recent, demographic shift in the electorate if this swing is attributable to a ‘new, different set of Victorians’.

    My understanding was that it was something to do with ‘infrastructure’.

    At the end of the day. Dan will leave office, with no consequences. He’ll still get his pension and be appointed to some board.

    I’m not sure sure. Perhaps there’ll be a campaign, “Consequences for Dan Andrews”? The restrictions are short term, but there’ll be many years for the damage to catch up with him.

    Are you now, or have you ever been, a high-risk spreader? So now they want to be able to detain people who don’t even fit the requirements for quarantine. Arrest and release wasn’t good enough for Vik Pol, now they want to be able to detain for weeks, and the government will give you the bill. So effectively, they have just used public health to do away with courts to imprison and financially punish people. Because they know their arrests for incitement and breaching health directions will not stand in the courts, they have moved on to a new system where they get to impose the punishment, both in terms of fines AND imprisonment.

    Alan, I understand you have said: “This was planned. Back in 2012 they openly told you – Qatar: 2012 DOHA update. @1:07: “Countries have agreed that they will work toward a universal agreement that is legally based, and they have given the deadline of 2015 for that agreement, to go into effect by 2020. @1:38: “A complete transformation of the *economic* structure of the world.”

    But what I do not understand by that sort of rhetoric, when bolt on to their arguments references to Gates, WHO, WEF, UN, and so on, is whether there is that level on international conspiracy that can have a dominant reach and seamless influence into places like Victoria. I can see that there are agendas, at a state and national level, and different groups can be involved (e.g. business, unions), but, without evidence, is it not too far a stretch to state that some WEF agenda back in the year dot is now being outplayed hear, let us say, in Victoria?

    The same set of bad policies come out of the playbook of different groups: centralisation of the state; increased welfare; increased government debt; increased government reach into the daily lives of each us through excessive quantity of legislation. If it down to some green-left international conspiracy, then, fine, but I think we can give these numb nuts to much credit. If they are globalists, fine. But there are national and state-province constraints in many countries. I know that this does not stop the locals signing up to an internal agenda, such as Agenda 21 or whatever.

    If individuals want the state to be their womb-to-tomb saviour, then they will take the appropriate pill. Others will resist. And, as some have mentioned, as an example, the push back by those who take the pill that anchors them in current reality (logic, Western morals, representative politics, civil justice), may soon result in some untimely deaths, even in Victoria. Even poor old Robespierre paid the price for his stupidity, as did Ceaușescu.

    Any Victorian who is not totally opposed to this completely terrifying overreach needs to be locked up until sanity returns.

  78. The Sheriff

    Blaming Dictator Dan’s landslide victory on immigration isn’t very smart or accurate. The biggest swings occurred in places like Brighton and Hawthorn – both old money areas dominated by WASPs. The issue is the brainwashing by the state-controlled schools, The Age/ABC, and bourgeois white guilt. You don’t see many Asians or Indians jumping for joy over unSafe Schools, for example.

    Dictator Dan taking 6 years to complete his BA in Politics and Classics shows how dumb he is, all the more so since this was at the cesspit known as Monash. Their idea of Classics is probably looking at a shiny object inside the Fountain Gate Shopping Mall only marginally more aesthetically appealing than the brutalist communist architecture on campus and revelling at how “classic” it looks.

  79. Tim Neilson

    He is of above average intelligence by today’s standards. He has a BA, majoring in Classics and Politics. Granted, that is not what it used to be, by a long shot, but stupid people don’t earn such degrees, even today. There is real work and intelligence required, even today.

    It’s pretty difficult to fail an Arts subject if you hand in assignments and turn up to exams.

    The Classics should have more rigour than some pseudo-disciplines. However, Andrews would have had the Classics belted into him at his Catholic school. Then he could go back to square 1 at Uni and get a Classics minor in his pass degree pretty much just off what what the Brothers had strapped into him.
    As for a Politics major, if you think pass marks in that required anything much more than “four legs good, two legs bad”, you’re sadly overestimating Australian universities.

    Yes, he’s not full illiterate level stupid, but his pass degree in the Arts doesn’t mean that he’s got any real intellectual ability.

    His judgment will be severe. Hell awaits Daniel Michael Andrews.

    Heard Island for herd immunity?

    Nah, Dan says he’s a “good Catholic” so I suggest Easter island.

    Particularly when it appears he took six years to do a three year degree.

  83. notafan

    Dan has dropped the ‘good Catholic ‘ facade. No longer a constituency that counts.

  84. min

    More important than degree obtained but marks for all subjects . Pass credit distinction high distinction or fail.

  85. Des Deskperson

    ‘Particularly when it appears he took six years to do a three year degree.’

    Why did it take so long?

    Did he keep having to repeat subjects?

    Did he run out of money and have to take a part time job?

    Did the university allow him to defer subjects because of his involvement in student politics? Gillard, also a student politician, reportedly took 9 years to do a six-year course. Is there a pattern here?

  86. Rob MW

    When it comes to Daniel Andrews, on top of everything else, he really is stupid. Along with so much else that is wrong with him, Daniel Andrews is the thickest, densest politician I have ever come across, and there’s a lot of competition specially at the moment.

    Steve – when it comes to people that appear to be dumb and/or stupid, in any of life’s capacities, more often than not they are just cunning as shit-house rats with a plan to screw someone. Never ever take these types of bastards lightly and always assume they know what they are doing.

    assuming idiocy when malevolence is the motivator can be quite disastrous.

  89. TPL001

    I was at Monash a few years earlier than Dan (but in economics). The hate among the left in student politics was interesting – the Trotskyites versus the left of the ALP, etc. The Liberals and a group that I was in were on the right – Andrew Norton was in the Libs. Both generally fought against the ALP which were unsurprisingly cashed up (apparently from the unions) as were we, but from another source! But their tactics were, in a word, Machiavellian. Lying and deception for the ALP were stock-in-trade. They would do anything to get their stooges voted into this or that position. It was at the time when we were moving from ‘free’ university to the fee-paying model. There were those occasional persons who would do one subject a year and just bum around – join all the clubs and consume student fee-paid junket activities (and keep repeating subjects). These were the dudes who would take six years. My guess is that Dan was too busy at student politics, rather than at spending time studying (like most who wanted a career at the end of the slog). Guess he chose his career!

    Because he can’t solve problems. But he has rat cunning, is a master in the art of bullying, obfuscation and lying his arse off to cover for his lack of intelligence and practicality and common sense.

    I.e. bog, stock sociopath – zero creativity, big on white anting.

    Finally, emails have been produced at the Hotel quarantine enquiry showing that ADF assistance was indeed offered to Victoria (and refused) in April. So Emergency Management Commissioner Andrew Crisp, the skull in the Gestapo outfit, can finally stop lying about it.

    This is indicates malevolence. Is he stupid too? Perhaps. In league with malevolent forces? Seems so. The evidence is there, and requires rebuttal. No rebuttal forthcoming.
    China ALP.

  94. Squirrel

    Looking on from a distance (for which I am mightily grateful), when Andrews emerged as Opposition Leader (hadn’t noticed him previously) he struck me as someone who might have had a role in an episode or two of Father Ted – maybe as an ageing seminarian (had to repeat a year more than once…) who gets into Father Jack’s stash of firewater, goes berserk and stages a coup of Craggy Island.

  95. vlad

    The Classics should have more rigour than some pseudo-disciplines. However, Andrews would have had the Classics belted into him at his Catholic school.

    Highly unlikely. He was born in 1972, so he would have been at secondary school in the late eighties.

    Catholic schools – the upper, upper echelon aside – started scrapping Latin almost twenty years earlier.

  96. vlad

    I doubt they were still belting them by then, either.

  97. Colonel Bunty Golightly

    Yes Andrews was taught both Latin and the classics. His modus operanda after all is lifted directly from the book of Nero. Nero, like Andrews believed in the Moto, “Perpetua Culpa Alterna Vagus”

  98. Rob

    Victoria’s Premier is borderline insane and that’s a border those who back him in our “democratic” parliament crossed six years ago.

  99. one old bruce

    I agree with Steve. But some ask, ‘Why is everyone supporting Andrews?’ (Must be some kind of vast conspiracy of some sort, right? Ideology, brainwashing…)

    Max Weber warned a century ago that the bureaucratic/managerial state was an ‘Iron cage’, a path down which all humanity is lost, and a mechanical mass obedience takes over (he was German after all, they pioneered this stuff).

    Technology has made this bureaucratic state even more inevitable, but why? Don’t people want to be free? That’s what we always thought, now the great social media experiment is showing that most people prefer to be sheep – herd animals. Even ants in an ant nest. At the same time, science is showing that ‘humans’ are not as distinct from animals as we traditionally thought.

    Conformity is deeply ingrained into animal instincts, watch a school of fish, a herd, a nest of insects. We’ve always known about the irrational behaviour of the mob – why is it so surprising that a mob of humans on social media behave like one? Or that a bureaucratic state produces someone like Andrews as its ‘queen bee’? We can combat this by reasserting our human qualities, but some grand struggle against ‘evil’ is not the way to go I’m afraid, as Joseph Bottum argues here:
