From the choir to liar

The same photo on the front page of all three papers this morning here in Melbourne. The irony of Dan the Choirboy swearing to tell the truth was just too much for every editor in town. Ms Mikakos has drawn the short straw and has now decided to resign.

It is a great picture. Tells you quite a lot about politics.

Victorian premier Daniel Andrews give evidence before the Hotel Quarantine Inquiry on Friday, September 25, 2020.

    Is this proof of Jenny’s love for Forrest or does she want out to spill the Heinz?

  2. Roberto

    This should get all the womynses in the ALP up in arms against the Dear Leader.

    What a loathsome turd he is.

  3. Bruce of Newcastle

    Is that the guy who said he would never ever pay $1 billion to a capitalist running-dog company to not build a road?

    “I hold in my hand a list of all the people who had no idea untrained security guards were put in charge of hotel quarantine.”

    If a LNP leader threw one of his female ministers under the bus to cover his own sorry arse, the “Sisterhood” would be up in arms.

  6. Crazyoldranga

    It’ll be interesting to see how she votes in the No Confidence motion.

  7. Boambee John

    Crazy

    She has resigned from Parliament as well, so no vote for her.

  8. Robbo

    The bible had an asbestos cover.

    If only the prick had been holding a 1-Iron in the other hand when taking the oath.

    In the most risible part of the 2.5 hour long farrago of lies Chairman Dan came up with yesterday, he stated that the reason he did not believe that ADF assistance was offered by the Feds was because his Chief of Staff had not passed onto him the three letters from the Prime Minister dated 3, 5 and 10 July.

    Like the true pathological liar he is, he did it with a straight face.

    Three letters – personally addressed to him as Premier from the Prime Minister – and his Chief of Staff decided not to pass them onto Chairman Dan! Pull the other one.

    If this really happened why hasn’t Chris Eccles been sacked?

  10. stackja

    Yet Victorian voters supposedly support Dan according to a recent poll.

  11. Robbo

    There is the Gideon bible that you find in hotel rooms and then there is Liars bible that you find in Andrews desk drawer. No prizes for guessing which one Danny boy has in his talon.

  12. Lee

    Why would any of Dictator Dan’s ministers support him, as he would throw them under a bus without an instant’s hesitation to protect his own sorry hide?

  13. miltonf

    Yet Victorian voters supposedly support Dan according to a recent poll.

    Yeah well Newpoll said the SLF was going to win last year.

  14. Megan

    I’d need to get out the thesaurus to find enough words to describe this vile and despicable excuse for a human being, never mind a leader.

  15. Catlady

    Newspapers often have articles and pictures strategically placed. They should have had Dean Jones (RIP) hitting Dan for a six.

  16. Roberto 433

    What is the role of a state premier? Appears to be the talking head at daily press conferences. Pull the other one. At the close on Friday he thanked the enquiry chair and looked forward to her report so he as LEADER would be able to ensure it never happened again. Leader?

  17. The enquiry barrister had his measure. Good.

  18. chrisl

    It’s amazing the bible didn’t spontaneously combust when he held it

  19. MatrixTransform

    fall on yr sword Andrews

    and take the soviet revolution with you

  20. Nighthawk the Elder

    I thought Chairman Mao’s book was red? What version is Dan holding?

  21. Roger

    Why would any of Dictator Dan’s ministers support him, as he would throw them under a bus without an instant’s hesitation to protect his own sorry hide?

    Whatever happens, they will do what they are told to do by the factional bosses and their union bosses.

    That’s who state level Labor Party members actually represent, not their constituents.

  22. cuckoo

    It’s amazing the bible didn’t spontaneously combust when he held it

    It’s amazing Andrews didn’t spontaneously combust when he touched it. Have they tried sprinkling holy water on him?

  23. Perfidious Albino

    I believe Dan was holding his signed first edition copy of Alinsky, S’s “Rules for Radicals”.

    “Comrade (Daniel), have a good crack at these if you get the chance! Cheers, Saul x”

  24. Crossie

    It is a great picture. Tells you quite a lot about politics.

    Tells us even more about Dan. That smug look practically sneers ” you can’t touch me”.

  25. Dinky

    It didn’t burst into flames because he was holding a copy of Das Kapital.

  26. Crossie

    Whatever happens, they will do what they are told to do by the factional bosses and their union bosses.

    That’s who state level Labor Party members actually represent, not their constituents.

    Not too different from Coalition pollies who think their constituency are the Greens.

  27. Fair Shake

    Dan Andrews is not corrupt, incompetent and negligent all the time. Other times he is asleep.

  28. William the Conjuror

    The same photo on the front page of all three papers this morning here in Melbourne.

    Surprisingly, the two News Ltd papers don’t show the same photo, but slightly different grabs from the livestream. The Oz has the same photo as The Age, maybe the Channel Nein Chair gave it to them.

  29. Roger

    Not too different from Coalition pollies who think their constituency are the Greens.

    Indeed.

    Then they wonder why their primary vote is declining.

  30. incoherent rambler

    If only the prick had been holding a 1-Iron in the other hand when taking the oath.

    Yes. We know that not even God could hit a 1-iron.

    But, Jack Nicklaus could.

  31. Hoogan

    Meanwhile it is indeed interesting that in Wokestoria a female politician has taken the fall for the sins of a male politician… but then, maybe Chris Eccles passed the email addressed to Kim Jun Dan to Jenny instead??

  32. Leo G

    Other times he is asleep.

    I expect Andrews dreams of electoral sheep.

  33. the sting

    Just because you walk into a garage doesn’t make you a car .Don’t worry folks just look at Ananias and Sapphira . Judgement is coming .

  34. Shane

    As Rebel News has just pointed out, the pandemic of amnesia is continuing to wreck havoc amongst bureaucrats & politicians as Dan the Man forgot to turn up for his 11 am news conference this morning.

  35. the sting

    The head of Martin Pakula’s department signed the $30 million contract with United Security Group ,,, on Michael Smith News

  36. Aynsley Kellow

    The inquiry has been like a long episode of QI. Everyone effectively held up the ‘Nobody Knows’ paddle.

  37. H B Bear

    If Chairman Dan and his media kiddies think Mikakos’s head on a stick will make this go away they are very much mistaken.

  38. Rabbi Putin

    It seems socialism has evolved abit in the 21st century: they now apologise unreservedly when they take all your rights away and stomp the jackboot on you. It looks cuddlier to the press than the tanks and nuke-parades.

  39. yarpos

    “The head of Martin Pakula’s department signed the $30 million contract with United Security Group ,,, on Michael Smith News”

    then keep tracking back, who directed that action? keep going upstream. Saying it unknowable is complete bullshit.

  40. Dinky

    That’s the second female minister he’s got a rid off and replaced with a white male. Dan is starting to lose some woke points. I wonder if we’ll hear from the Emily Listers? Don’t worry I’m not holding my breath.

  41. Mark M

    You’re all wrong.

    It’s an original copy of 1984.

  42. Steve

    Interesting point about Saul Alynskis ” Rules for Radicals”,
    it has a dedication to Lucifer ( the Devil ).

    Kind of sums up the hard Left perfectly…..and one of its “guide books”…

  43. Tim Neilson

    She has resigned from Parliament as well, so no vote for her.

    Presumably the “no confidence motion” will be in the Assembly so she wouldn’t have been voting on that anyway.

    But has her resignation taken effect? If so, she can’t vote on the Fourth Re1ch Establishment Bill that’s currently before the Legislative Council.
    I suppose Dan can get a successor appointed pretty quickly, but until he does Labor are one vote down in trying to abolish the rule of law.

  44. Professor Fred Lenin

    If Dandemic Dan offered to the poison chalice of Health Minister would you accept it ?
    The Victorian Health Department will wear the odium of these wilfull homicide deaths for years .
    Its a pity the Old Liberal party has gone can you imagine Kennet as leader of the oppositon ,he would shred Andrews and his fifth rate gang .
    The federal ALP must be spewing at the terrible damage this is doing to the party image ,bye bye to the fourth rate feds courtesy the fifth rate Vics . They cant attack scomos handling of the Chinese Biological Warfare Attack when you see how thrir own comrades stuffeg it in Victoria.

  45. Squirrel

    The second picture above says so much, as did the moments of repose in yesterday’s performance – a straitjacket may be required for the eventual removal.

  46. vlad

    Dan Andrews is not corrupt, incompetent and negligent all the time. Other times he is asleep.

    No, even then.

  47. vlad

    No single human being has ever been a greater threat to our way of life in Victoria.

  48. Geriatric Mayfly

    $30 – 40 million flew the Treasury and no one knows who signed the cheque. Bring in the auditors and not those dodgy ones who go off on tangents.

    ‘Elf Minister’s head on a platter and still Sutton knew nuffink?

    Unf#ckingbelievable.

    Hilarious seeing this person hold a bible.

    This question:
    ‘When did it become a goal of Democrats and “progressives” to make the people poorer?’
    is asked here:

    Prosperity = independence.

  52. Epidermis

    The book he holds in his claws is actually titled “Labor Intellectual Giants of the 21st Century”. Yes you guessed it, all pages are blank.

  53. egg_

    You’re all wrong.

    It’s an original copy of 1984 Animal Sewage Farm.

    “Some turds are more equal”.

    It’s an original copy of Sewage Farm.

    The beer bug hopped out of the swamp – holding its nose.

  55. Michael Lewis

    Just reading the comments from the SMH/Age on article about Mikakos resignation. All the Dan acolytes are saying yes she had to go and Dan can now do the job properly. It reminds me of the tale of a citizen in Germany/Russia who has witnessed a terrible government action and thinks that this wouldn’t occur if only Hitler / Stalin knew what was happening.

  56. Does that look like a Maximum Leader body double to anyone else?
    🤔🤔🤔

  57. Baysidegal

    Victoria is being abused and creepy Dan is the abuser in chief.

  58. Aussieute

    “I can’t recall” “I don’t remember” “I can’t be sure”

    Those comments have not been the first time these have appeared.
    Been digging and discovered The Royal Commission into Trade Union Governance and Corruption
    Yup they appeared there coming from one John-Paul Blandthorn from HawkerBritton who is currently Stakeholder Relations for The Hon. Dan Andrews and also Adviser to Bill Shorten

    Why are these non comments acceptable and not telling the truth Kristy McSweeney explains

  59. herodotus

    Looks like the angst has taken a couple of kilos off him.

  60. Kneel

    “The bible had an asbestos cover.”

    Surely the flames aren’t big enough to reach that high from his pants, are they?
