On leave at the moment but I thought I would leave you with this delightful video of what some brilliant physics scientists do for leisure.

As we have seen on Andrew’s, Piers, and Tim’s blogs, Turnbull’s leadership is terminal. This does not surprise any of us “Delcons” from the day he and the ‘bed-wetters’ knifed Tony Abbott.
In fact, these events show that the ‘Delcons were right all along.
The Bed-wetters in the liberal party, and the MSM are dead set against Tony Abbott taking over again. But who else is? Seriously?
A few months ago there was a rumour that Abbott might be invited back into Cabinet. “No Vacancy!” snapped the Stick Insect.
Instead, today, rumours abound that the Stick Insect herself is in line to take over from Turnbull.
That would be most terminal for the liberal party.They would have no chance in the election.
For me, Tony Abbott should take over with Peter Dutton as his offsider – the Nationals have the right to appoint the deputy PM.
I would like to see Andrew Hastie, the ex-SAS Captain be Minister of Defence. That would shake up the ADF!
Christian Porter or Eric Abetz as Treasurer – after that, I’m stumped – is there any more talent there?
That’s my opinion concerning the saving of the liberals, in reality I couldn’t care less about them for the simple reason is that they don’t care about us.
I was looking at ‘Battlelines’ again by Tony Abbott, which was published about 7 years ago, but when I came to a bit where he was bragging about the success of the liberal party ‘broad church’ I stopped reading.
Just Fantasy and BS.
The only good news is there are only 35 of the bed-wetters left. Serves them right. There will be even fewer after the next election. Tony is the ONLY hope, no matter how much the MSM hates him. He will just have to do a Trump and rely on being impervious to criticism and using Twitter to get his unabridged and unmodified message out.
I would hate to see Andrew Hastie fed to the wolves by being set the impossible task of draining the swamp – more the bottomless pit – of Defence. The clean out required there would involve wholesale sackings and a complete change of senior personnel, not just in the uniformed area but among the civilian mandarins who are the real power brokers in Defence, something that would be close to impossible, particularly for a government with a one seat majority.
I am not convinced that Andrew Hastie is the person to undertake that task, Cliff. Two things niggle at me: 1. There is much dissatisfaction with the ADF command and DVA but Hastie has uttered not a word of support for those who are fighting the good fight against the degrading rot. 2. He is a product of the very organisation you would have him take to task.
Bernard Gaynor would be my pick. I don’t know what the mechanism is to get him there, but there will be one and I bet labor would use it in a heartbeat legal or not.
Gaynor knows the problems inside out and knows exactly where to start. I think it should be considered that radical reform may not be the the best approach, as every one acknowledges the rot and corruption is so thoroughly infused, layers and layers. Maybe the most important decision is to have some one with the insight to know where to cut and the resolve to complete the job, then start with absolute resolve.
It is often surprising how quickly a rotten edifice collapses once the first boot goes in. I believe there could also be much worth saving to rebuild with.
Cliff, Hastie’s a political neophyte. Reforming Defence will require a tough, experienced political operator acting according to a plan that is unequivocally and actively supported by the PM and Cabinet.
Clean up the “star” ranks and their PS counterparts according to tried and true wartime tenets, then make them accountable for reforming their subordinates and internal processes.
my off topic observation this day. Is the way Donald Trump has turned the tables on the Democratic Party. MSM and Democratic Party have insisted it was leaked talks with Trumps team……..so how did those leaks come about……..Obama and the Loretta Lynch of the meet with Bill Clinton. DOJ has asked for the wire tapping…….Trump is one smart man , he has advisors that are up to the Left and PC garbage WE HAVE PUT UP WITH ……..lets watch the democrats wind back on Russian , they have an ex President an ex DOJ and ex secretary of state to keep out of jail……….just love it
Lorraine If you can get hold of Richard Fiddler conversation today at 11.00 Am today on the ABC with a yank about why the Democrats lost the election in the US.
Fred, did you say ABC? Go and wash your mouth out.
Random thought. Why not have Centrelink investigate every muslim ‘single’ mother on their books. If they are still alive or not a cripple it means the mueslis approve. That is they are someone’s second (third, fourth?) “wife”. Find the “husband” and deport the whole tribe. But first confiscate all their assets to recover the cost of the fraud they perpetrated on the Australian taxpayer.
Our wonderful cartoonist died to day of a heart attack this afternoon and could morning mail post some of his cartoons that nobody liked
Have been in some face book about our wonderful cartoonist and it is sad sad sad they have not lived long enough and are brain washed as to how life is suppose to be, but there are so called educated persons that have no idea as to what out in big wide wonderful world of expanse of au
I have just heard that Bill Leak has passed away, All that stress with the HRC and the PC Brigade out in force on what was the truth…………Rose coloured glasses of the stupid left….. what a shame thoughts are with his family (by the way know nothing about the man )other than his cartoons. RIP
Lorraine, watching the wonderful Mr Leak being interviewed by Andrew Bolt several times, I really feel like I got to know the man, just a tiny little bit. What I saw in him was amazing, brave, kind and intelligent. I noticed the other evening his interview regarding his amazing collection of cartoons he looked incredibly tired and sad. Mzzz Triggs needs to explain herself. This is truly a sad day.
The Spectator author Rowan Dean on Friday said his good friend had been “hounded to his grave”.
It is pretty easy to correlate anxiety with heart problems. I think it is fair to say that all that 18c crap had some part in Bill’s death.
If not in the pure medical sense the worry and legal overhead may well have made him put his own health checks second place for the time being as he worked thru the Trigg gestapo issues.
Ya know, it is hard to think of a group of people more unAustralian then the department of free speech killers. That they exist is a national disgrace, that they are paid with taxpayer’s money is an abomination.
Below is a link to a brilliant cartoon and satirical piece in support of the late and very much missed Bill Leak.
It is would almost certainly be illegal if I were to advocate the killing of a named individual.
But I can certainly state publicly my heartfelt wish that Commissar Triggs and her little monkey suffer massive, painful, heart attacks and die. Soon
Trumble should set up a judicial enquiry into all the circumstances of the AHRC’s “case” against Leak, including whether or not the indigenous-identified complainant acted independently of the AHRC.
Since my stroke I have difficulty sleeping and depend on not too repulsive TV to help me stay relatively sane til morning. A few nights ago I got a nasty shock. Bris 31 was gone.
“Amateurish” it may have been but it was still more watchable than most of the rubbish broadcast by the other channels at that time.
My brother and his wife have lived a frugal lifestyle and were expecting to continue to do so after retiring. Now they are trying to live on nothing.
Both of these are because of the ignorant arrogant parasite currently masquerading as prime minister. If Australia is not to become the new Venezuela, he must be removed.
Who can replace him? Certainly not Tony Abbott, who was useless as PM. Even in a safe environment like “The Bolt Report” has was unable to answer even the simplest of questions without five minutes obfuscation.
Rob, although Mr Turnbull could stop and reverse the pension grab, it was Tony Abbott that put the bill into play. The very same man who promised to repeal parts of 18C and then backflipped because he didn’t want to annoy the Muslim vote. I wonder if he had the nerve to send condolences to the Leak family?
Bought a packet of conrnflakes recently. Instead it was a bag of conflakes mixed with mostly air.
Sadly, I think you are correct. TA was the hope of conservatives and he let us down badly. I suppose, really that means he is like most politicians, a hide thicker than a rhinoreros so the Leak family would have probably received a condolence card just as the MSM received a heart-felt condolence from Abbott, one of the two negligent PM’s the death of Bill Leak could be apportioned to.
Harsh? No! They are the power in the Land. They knew and know the feelings on the public other than the left on the score of Triggs and 18C and chose to do nothing. So they are culpable.
For your difficulty sleeping…try Tai Chi. There are a lot of free lessons on the internet. I like Don Fiori, Daily Tai Chi and I am looking at Dr Paul Lam DVDs.
Richard Fiddler has an old interview with Bill Leak. Podcast it it is interesting.
The hot variety, which passes for political rhetoric, is the most expensive type of air in the world!
So Malcolm’s blathering about gas, all out of the blue. Makes me wonder what other news it is that he is desperately trying to cover up.
I have often wondered why commentators do not do more to enlighten us on what Bill Shorten and the Labor Party are doing. I am sure they are much worse than the Conservatives but more cunning.
I used to drink Coopers ales when out at a pub or restaurant. At home I drink home brew, including many made from Coopers excellent home brew kits.
No More! The deviant sex brigade decided to boycott Coopers for being involved with a perfectly civilised and rational debate about “marriage equality” (i.e totally redefining marriage out of existence). Did the company keep its nerve and politely tell the pillow biters to f**k off? No it caved in before faggot fascism and withdrew the video.
At this point I wondered whether a counter- boycott might be in order by us normal people. I reckon they could lose far more custom from this than the few sales lost from the fudge packers union.
Then I learned that Coopers had also already caved in to the muslim halal protection racket and paid the dhimmi tax. That decided the issue for me.
I will NEVER buy another Coopers product while the video remains under wraps and while they submit to the islamofascists by paying their protection money.
I will write to the company informing them of this. This will have virtually no effect whatsoever. But what if THOUSANDS of us do the same??
Please support this boycott, enlist your friends, and write to the company.
My “do not buy under any circumstances” list has just got longer. Pity because I do like a pale ale. There are good substitutes though, just have to keep an eye on who goes Sharia.
Why would Coopers do this . The Sharia mob are not allowed alcohol. Maybe it’s just to be seen to be “progressive”!
