Who polished Craig Thomson’s Knob?

The deliberate ineptitude of the Labor government over the Craig Thomson affair is as amazing as it is unsurprising and I am rather darkly amused that it is only now that someone has decided to try to find evidence that it was actually Thomson’s knob that got polished in those brothel transactions that were made on his union credit card. Talking about an obvious path to the truth that has been deliberately avoided for political reasons would not be unfair  in this case.

The roller-coaster ride is far from over for Labor on this issue and aren’t we conservatives enjoying seeing them scream as the  car dives over yet another  precipice?

Front row Julia and Wayne

Dave and Jezza get the sack, or foxes meet grapes

Well it looks like Dave and Jezza have got the sack, sure they are potting a brave face on it but the fact of the matter is that Crikey have finally pulled the pin on “Pure Poison” well you have to ask what took them so long?

What is it with Lefties and their lack of staying power?

Hmm that makes three iterations of ” Boltwatch” which have risen from the foetid imagination of our learned friend only to crash and burn, well maybe its time for Jezza and Dave to concentrate on their day jobs ….. because their attempts to be news  media critics and defenders of “intellectual honesty” have not amounted to much.

And the condemned man drank lots of water.

Like a lot of politics junkies I watched Craig Thompson’s address to the parliament and I must say that I found his rambling speech anything but convincing and his consumption of water was to say the least extraordinary and clearly a significant tell of just how fearful and nervous he clearly was about delivering his explanation to the house.

  Anyway what did everyone else think of this piece of tragic political theatre ?

Wayne and Julia are fans of the Sandpit so they took the time to keep its readers informed about Labor’s blacker than black budget

As the budget is due to be delivered tonight I thought that I would post these emails I received from my ‘good friends’ Wayne and Julia. Its a wonder of the modern age that our Prime Minister and Treasurer take the time to send personal emails to this humble blogger.

Isn’t that just great?

Anyway take this post as an open thread to discuss the Budget in particular just how it may help or hinder Wayne and Julia’s quest to get the Australian people to believe any thing that they say.

Sould Bill Shorten be on suicide watch?

Hands up anyone who is a fan of “Yes minister“, OK now tell me is Bill Shorten not working from one of the scripts in this interview! My oh my how the Labor party lurches like a drunken sailor from one misstep to another! Heck,  Shorten even looks like he is suicidally depressed in the vision, he certainly has absolutely no enthusiasm for the message he is tasked with selling. Maybe that is how the Gillard government will end. Some poor MP may just decide that the whole sorry Saga that is the current Labor government is too shameful to live with and that suicide is a more honourable end than sticking around to share the ignoble dissolution of this  excuse for a government. From the looks of his demeanour it looks to me as if poor bill Shorten should be on suicide watch, he should clearly be kept away form the drug cabinet, sharp knives, stout rope  and any sort of firearms.

Cheers Comrades
