Sigh – Their ABC followed up the presser from SA with the usual garbage – wtte
The PM received a warm welcome because she came with money, now let’s talk about leadershit. John Murphy has told her to resign as leader yada yada yada……. Turned it off.
i’ve never herard of John Murphy, he must be another one of Rudd’s supporters eager to get his face in front of a camera after years of sitting on the back bench doing bugger all.
About the blue tie thing.
The OM didn’t bother to point out what PMJG was getting at with her blue tie talk. If we have a Coalition government the deputy leader does not beome acting PM when the PM is away. That job goes to the leader of the National Party. So if (God forbid) we get an Abbott government then Julie Bishop could never be acting PM, that privilege would go to Wazza Truzzzzz. Can you imagine? That was what PMJG was on about – a woman (JBishop) would not be allowed by the coalition to carry out a certain duty, a bloke would do it.
I don’t know if anyone noticed, but on the last parliamentary sitting day most of the government’s male MPs were wearing blue ties – assorted shades of blue. It seemed to me that they were quietly taking the mickey out of Abbott. Their continued favouring of blue ties is just more of the same.
I was correct, it seems, last night when I saw the Saturday edition of the Daily Telegraph op up about 11.15pm.
The so-called senior ALP figure who was going to “call on Julia Gillard to step down” was none other than John Murphy.
Sheesh… is this the best they can muster? Beef Stroganoff Man?
Poor old Rudd. He may be a high profile captain, but he’s got a pretty ordinary squad to pick his team from if Murphy’s any indication of their calibre.
It’s sounding like Last Shot In The Locker time for Murdoch and his pet pollie, Rudd.
Pickings are getting thin on the ground in the anti-Gillard camp. They’re reduced to pumping up back benchers into national figures, selectively quoting Paul Howes (good idea in concept I suppose, as Howes was famously front and centre when Rudd went in 2010), but reall… seriously… can’t they pick someone the punters have heard of?
The Labor Party has its share of dead wood.
The only really prominent thing that Murphy has done was whinge about the quality and size of the beef stroganoff in the parliament’s canteen.
The blue ties alluded to the number of men on the opp front bench. But that was to subtle for the OM. Instead all we got was inane chatter and giggling about look Labor parliamentarians wear them too.
The Rudd supporters also have distortions of recent history to support their arguments. I was curious (or foolish) enough to read Hartcher’s latest, and what struck me most is how much of a willful misreading of the past six months his screed is. According to him, such minor events as Gillard securing the NDIS and Gonski never happened. His version of events is just that she’s achieved nothing this year, and every single event (even things like Roxon quietly stepping down) being proof of the inherent ‘chaos’ that surrounds Gillard’s government, and has nothing to do with powerful media/corporate interests or the inherent complexities of minority government. And of course going more recently, Gillard’s Monday speech had nothing to do with anything positive or about Labor’s achievements for women, it was just a rant about abortion that will threaten it because it gives the right permission to discuss it, or something like that. The Rudd portion of his article is the usual fantasy about him getting a ‘rock-star reception’ everywhere and being loved by all.
That’s exactly the impression I got. It was a tabloid journalism piece dressed up as elite commentary.
I deliberately didn’t link it for that very reason. Just a hatchet job.
I know I shouldn’t but I’ll give Kevin a big tip.
Kevin Maaate, better get yourself a better numbers man this time. Joel Fitzgibbon couldn’t organise a kiss in a brothel. 🙂
Exactly what the Tories want – politic returned to being a bys-only club.

Yesterday I spoke to an audience of hundreds of teenage girls. Asked if Gillard’s treatment deters them from public service. Furious nods.
Had a call from a customer from Strathfield [ he’s a soft lib], sorted out his problem. He then told me that Murphy had made a fool of himself that morning re Rudd. Time’s up John, move on yourself
Good call, BB. Also note that for someone who professes to be an ‘expert’ in foreign affairs, he also entirely leaves out Gillard’s diplomacy work in China and elsewhere. Perhaps because he’d prefer saber-rattling to anything useful.
Hartcher – or should that be Hatchet? – is an embarrassing shill for the Liberals.
His columns don’t come within a bull’s roar of fairness or even clarity. It’s just a hate session against Gillard, day-in, day-out.
I will look forward to them all being wrong again.

A room full monkeys and typewriters could write Shakespeare. I find it strange that no Australian journalist can write a sentence of truth

Breaking News!.10/10 Australian journalists failed the shit from clay test. In fact,they all ate the shit! Even worse, most asked for more!!

Australian journalists are depressingly shallow and despairingly corrupt. We need to start asking the question…Why are they like this??
This just a start. If I can I’ll try do at least 10/15 per day. Btw …the first tweet has been up about 20 mins & retweeted already by someone who has 205 followers.

@howespaul @MinhKular Pru McSween on #PMLIVE : “Gillard frustrated because she doesn’t get a root!” ..and Paul Murray said nothing!
I don’t know much about Prue McSween. After seeing her on the Aussie ‘celebrity’ version of Come Dine With Me I don’t want to see or hear any more about her, ever. She was hostess for the first night and none of the guests had yet met one another. Prue – well past middle age and looking more ravaged than ravishing – greeted her guests wearing a bathrobe, they looked hugely embarrassed by this. Once they had all arrived she informed them that her night was all about sex and then served them a sex-themed menu with dishes named for orgasms and body parts. The guests looked vey uncomfortable throughout the evening as Prue cackled and hooted and outdid Benny Hill for crudeness.
It seems Prue is hung up on sex. At her age and with her looks and personality it can only be for one reason. The same thing she’s saying about the PM.
Back from the North of New South Wales, Janelle Saffin’s electorate (Page).
We’ve been going to and through Ballina for about twenty years and try to look in at a little coffee shop. Last Thursday would have been the fourth time, I think. The place looked the same except that the coffee bean dispensers that used to array the wall behind the service desk had gone. The friendly aroma of coffee wasn’t there any more: it was just another café.
We went there for breakfast, around nine o’clock, and got chatting to the bloke. Seems he bought it about four years ago. Here is his take on the economy:
. we have been in recession for eight years,
. shops are closing all over the place in Ballina (from what we saw I don’t think that that is as widespread as he thinks),
. his main customers are pensioners but they can’t afford to go there any more: electricity prices up 35 % and retailers put on 20% when the carbon tax came in,
. Gillard’s fault (I think he thought it was Canberra’s fault, not necessarily JG’s),
. doesn’t expect the economy to turn round,
. the banks aren’t lending,
. doesn’t know what to do.
We asked him the name of his federal rep in Canberra. Didn’t know. Ever helpful we opined that it would be the people with 💡 who would get through OK. He thought perhaps he could get some souvenir things in, like hats (:!:). Perhaps he could expand but the shops either side were occupied. Besides, if he expanded he would have to take on more staff.
We didn’t offer any advice; just listened. We reckon he could make a go of it if he specialized in something (“Best muffins North of Coffs!”) but if he doesn’t pull his finger out he’ll be another casualty.
No other customers came in on the half hour or so we were there.
The fairly new Ballina bypass may have something to do with it.
In summary, The Noalition’s talking down the economy has worked a treat.
We went down to the information centre to see if they knew the local member. They got a bit confused about local, State and federal reps but worked out it was either Janelle Saffin or Justine Elliott (she’s in Richmond which starts just North of Ballina).
In Evans Head, rental accommodation is “slow” but house buying is picking up.
On the way back we stayed in a motel outside Grafton. Same complaint that the banks weren’t lending but at least they were renovating the rooms and seemed quite optimistic about the future.
John Murphy got stuck into Murdoch in Parliament. In an adjournment speech, I think.
Oops, I thought I’d closed this thread …
