Get out of UN—Tim Blair

Tim Blair: Australia should have nothing to do with the United Nations

Unfortunately both editors being on the road and other pressures involving lack of access to the internet things got into a jumble. This article was half finished and was to be scheduled.

The pressure is still on, other things need doing, so the article has been pulled just leaving the comments.

No offence or breach of copyright was intended.

    Australia dodged a bullet when Turnbull was dumped as Leader of the Opposition. His idea of opposition was to simply agree with Rudd as though the two incompetents were joint Prime Ministers.
    If it had not been for Tony Abbott taking over and tearing into the Labor-Green alliance – an alliance in writing and actually signed – Australia was in for continual years of pain.
    Well, Abbott was done in, but for a short while he had righted the ship in one aspect, migration.
    With this MalMo – congratulations SeaDogger by the way on a great name MalMo short for Malcolm Morrison- we are back on the same old same old same old.
    We will see how MalMo cosy’s up to Rudd as a litmus test.

      I found this yesterday;

      Chris Newman
      “So you are continuing the policy to gradually hand over Australia’s sovereign Right to Self-Rule and Self-Determination to the UN Bureaucrats and their unelected Political masters. That is Treachery and Betrayal of the first order. Show us in your Party’s Manifesto where it gives you, and your current colleagues the right to betray Australia in this way?. Tell the People of Australia how you intend to sell them out further In December when you intend to sign the UN Global Compact on Immigration, which will effectively hand over to the UN the control of immigration into Australia.
      Tell them also how you intend to sign the Katowice Agreement at the same time which will similarly hand over control of Australia’s Carbon Emissions Target to the U.N. At a time when Australia should be completely reviewing its membership of the UN, its cost, and its impositions regarding immigration and payments to indolent countries, you are taking Australia deeper into the mire.
      Australians are now more aware than ever how you, and other members of the Political Elite are gradually handing over Australia’s sovereign Right to Self-Rule and Self Determination to the U.N. to e4nable their megalomaniac ambitions of World Government. You and your Party will pay dearly for such treachery at the next election.”

        I deserve a medal for watching all of that embarrassing ‘Payne by nature Payne by name’ woman, at the UN. Full of all the touchy feels cliches which are meaninglesss and then selling us out on climate change and immigration.
        Talk about sucking up to the UN. Gone from the stick insect to the blubbery whale.

    The last time the UN did anything of any worth in peacekeeping was the Korean War of the early 1950s.

    Since then, new states have emerged mainly due to decolonisation by France and Britain.

    And these new states have become shitholes in every way, including their manner at the UN.

    It manifested in the Congo in 1960 when it became independent from Belgium. The treatment of the people of Katanga by UN troops was dreadful.

    So this is not new. What is relatively new is the willingness of Australian Governments to kow-tow to the UN, and I mean Liberal and Labor, both as bad as each other.

    To paraphrase Shakespeare; Out damn spot, out I say! Now that is a place littered with ghosts. How appropriate that Malcontent should want to feature there. After all he did attempt a second coming.

    I was far from impressed with the installation of Morrison as a replacement for Turnbull. I had a bad feeling that we were in for more of the same and to date Morrison has done much to justify my uneasiness. Morrison has made several alarming blunders and has now praised Turnbull as being a great man doing great things for Australia by addressing the UN on our behalf. Morrison will continue to follow in the footsteps of his friend Turnbull and sell us out to the UN. I hope and pray that it will be his undoing because he is not the PM Australia wants or needs.

      With deep regret, I must say that I think you’re 101% on the money with those comments, Albert.

      Prime Minister Shorten.

      I fear we will have to get used to seeing – and hearing – that. God help us all. Poor Fella My Country.

    Tim Blair has a wonderful turn of phrase!
    At times, very funny, but he nails it: Australia should burn every bloody charter it has with the UN.

    New IPCC report to demand less meat in our diets – time we told the UN to shove it




  • angry 02/10/2018, 10:18 am

    Wait! “Critical”,”life changing” UN IPCC report by 33.5 unpaid women is just like all the last ones

    Rename the UN to better represent its mission: Unelected Neocommunista. Our only hope to decommission this snake-infested organisation is for The Donald to completely defund the USA’s generous annual contribution and withdraw its membership. The UN would fold quickly as other nations would refuse to pitch in with extra funds to make up the shortfall. The UN is almost totally reliant on the USA for funds to keep it operating as it does. The Donald has already warned the corruptocrats to expect a’change of direction’ if the snakepit doesn’t change its ways…especially with its flagrant animus towards Israel. Lots of soiled undies presently in the UN.

    • Cliff 02/10/2018, 6:22 pm

      If The Donald could convince the mayor of New York to do one simple thing – book and clamp all the illegally parked UN-plated cars that litter lower East Manhattan on a daily basis, he’d quite possibly turn that uberDemocrat area into staunch Republicans.

      Third World failed superannuated politicians posing as diplomats (did I say ‘Third World’? – add Australia to that list) make up the vast majority of UN delegates, and they milk the diplomatic system to the fullest.One of the more visible rorts they pull is illegally parking in the streets of Manhattan, something that REALLY pisses off the locals there. If the NY Mayor allowed the cops to clamp – and maybe even better, tow away – the UN diplomats’ cars, we would see a succession of speeches of passionate outrage on the floor of the UN about the ‘rights’ of UN diplomates replace the usual rants against Israel.

      Your point is taken, Tim, but it’s a bit pointless demanding a link when your article is firewalled, isnt it?

    • Wallace 02/10/2018, 2:20 pm

      Tim, with all respect and scant knowledge of copyright, those of us, and there are many who can’t afford a subscription will be missing out on your important contribution to the conservative voice. Having been a Morning Mail reader for more than four years I observe no commercial interest. The only people to suffer via your order to remove your article are those unable to subscribe. A link amounts to the same thing—a paywall. I suggest that with a possible Labor win at the next election the conservative voice is more important than ever before?

      • Xword 02/10/2018, 3:28 pm

        Plus a lot of oomph taken out of your blog Tim now that your masters have also paywalled comment by the hoi poloi. BTW, how is the Tele going to introduce Mr Robinson when he makes his Oz tour?
