    “As always, our advice is dependent on the presence of COVID-19 in the community and the source of its transmission,” they said.

    One set of rules for multi-millionaires arriving on yachts, movie stars, rugby league and AFL players and TV celebrities with a letter from their doctor, another set of rules for everyone else.

    Wuhan But Flu could see Santa photos scrapped this Christmas.

    Anesthesia Pluckachook demonstrating (yet again) her uncanny ability to read the mood of the electorate.

    Annastacia hates children, so this is no surprise.

    Santa to be replaced by St Pony Girl by government decree. Bring on the election.

  5. The booing was always with Good reason. NSW refs may as well have worn a blue guernsey.

    NSW refs may as well have worn a blue guernsey.

    Someone had to offset the biased selection criteria.
    (PS love the use of “guernsey”. Not enough of it these days.)

    If the refs were wearing a blue guernsey they’d be playing the wrong sport

    The Chinese Communist Party got the ball rolling with its global proliferation of Kung Flu, but the rest of the global left is now using it to destroy what’s left of Western culture and its meritocracy.

    The 21st century left is evil and insidious and evil never sleeps. Right down to to the desire to abolish Christmas because its origins are Christian and it reminds leftists of their place in nature before they began playing God.

    Where did “Pony Girl” come from?

    I love Anaesthesia, though!

    At least this decision, unlike others she has made and subsequently defended, won’t actually kill a child.

    Where did “Pony Girl” come from?

    Her father held the safest ALP state seat in Qld for decades.
    When he finally retired, the state ALP rulers selected her as his successor without even the formality of a branch-stacked vote in the actual electorate; just a straight inherited handover.
    Conservatives asked “did she get a pony as well?”.
    Hence Pony Girl leading the Pony Club government.

    Queensland has a history of treating seats as hereditary chattels. They are not alone of course.

    In most cases the offspring would seem to have limited alternative career options beyond shopping centre speed bumps.

    While not a hereditary beneficiary per se, Labor’s idiot son, Bill Ludwig looks like costing the nation’s taxpayer tens if not hundreds of millions of dollars. It would have better if his old man simply rubbed one out wiped it on the curtains.

    I think I can take credit. Yay!
    Years ago I commented here on the circumstances of her ‘pre-selection’ to the effect that most girls would be happy to get a pony from Daddy but she got an electorate.

    One whole electorate, which she has managed to pony up to the entire State of Queensland?

    I’ll see myself out…
