So many Captain’s Nose Picks bleeding – haemorrhaging even – in such a short time:
The Elder Bishop and her sudden relegation to cattle class
Marriage Equality over abbott’s decaying corpse (okay, that may alter come Wednesday – but I suspect too little too late)
Dyson Heydon and cognitive ease (failing to be cognizant of bias when it’s in your comfort zone)
A brand-new Speaker who wasn’t Captain Nose-Pick’s choice – much to Captain Nose-Pick’s wattle-wobbling fury
That brave whistle-blower, Kathy Jackson, and the missing $million plus (“Whaddaya mean, that $1.4mill was supposed to go to the *sharply indrawn breath* plebs?”)
The ABC will be Killing Bill next Monday (Typical lefty ABC – too little too late)
Not to mention ongoing security warnings about DEF KULTS in front of a gazillion or three
Union JacksAustralian flags (Who the hell do these uppity colonials think they are, pretending to have their own flag?)
Oh, and who let the cat out of the bag about that thoroughly dee bloke Heydon being on the selection panel to choose the only possible candidate for the Rhodes Scholarship? Heads will roll.

Oops, someone seems to have gatecrashed the séance through the Ouija board’s back gate. Sorry about that . . .
I keep telling myself to calm down; it’s too early to order nonstop popcorn; almost anything could happen – but we might, just possibly might be on the cusp of viewing the Great Unhingement.
Sit back, folks (fasten your seatbelts – it could well be rough) and enjoy.
(Though I still and really want him to stay until we hear those words that will be ripped from his guts – when he finally gives his post-election concession speech . . .)

Would you take a dip 35 metres up in London’s first ‘sky pool’?
I’ll pass on that ‘sky pool’.
I probably would, too.
Meanwhile, I’m passing for the rest of the evening. Another 9:00am class tomorrow, with a load or two of washing to put on the line before I hit the road.
Sleep well, all you little lovelies.
The last time I can remember folding my arms like that was at primary school. The old “sit up straight and fold your arms” from the teachers to bring the class into line. Not doing so since must be my belated ‘defiance’ 🙂
Tweeted with the comment “Peak Schadenfreude” the Hun’s front page.
Is that “libs hunt” or “lib shunt”?
KK – Missed opportunity: “From ‘hero’ to zero”, but they’ve gone with the “We’ve always been at war with Eurasia” approach.
(For the top half.)

Why are these bastards not in gaol?

Classic work from David Rowe on cabinet leaks.
Shut down Manus and Nauru camps once and for all and destroy them.
Amen to that.
I read a story that was linked in twitter, about Shorten, in the Huff post. It was more about how wonderful Toxic was. Apparently the writers don’t get paid, so I’m sticking with our Aussie Independent sites.
The shonky private college thing –
I had one of those salesmen just a couple of weeks ago, probably trying to drum up business for the start of this semester. I’ve had the same offer before. Sometimes they asked to speak to people under 60. This is seen as a disadvantaged area, I suppose, still lots of public housing, most of the rest has been bought up by investors and is leased to low income families, so the perfect target for these shonks.
The silly thing is the estate surrounds the local TAFE – not that anyone can afford to study there now, thanks to Abbott and his buddy, Baird. But even a year or so ago, when fees were still affordable, the salesmen were flocking in.
Australia demonises refugees and asylum seekers and turns back boats. Greece is doing the opposite.

To keep her quiet of course; by bribery or threats
Poor old Barrie doing his best
A good week?!
Refugees here are either sent back or to the offshore camps where they get abused, neglected, killed and tortured.
I heard Cassidy this morning – stupid and disingenuous as usual. And so self-important. What a pompous git.
Daniel Hurst is live-blogging the Denials of Heydon

Nice one, Robert!

Calls it for what it was, see inset photo
Now, why would that be? Overlooked?
Yes duck, that was a ripper that Agius just d-ropped.-
Forgive my typing. young Logan was “assisting”.
It’s all good, BK.
[video src="https://pbs.twimg.com/tweet_video/CM5deScVEAEyKP7.mp4" /]
Forget that last one.
I am delighted you are familiarising Logan with the keyboard (and The Pub). It is important to start ’em young.
Toasting Heydon now has a new meaning.
Dyson make good vacuum cleaners. This one is dodgy. Needs a new suction device and new premises.
Adjourned till Thursday at the latest. He hopes.
Tuesday, I thought.
Tuesday it is.
It’s amazing what you can find on Gumtree. Like this cabinet listed by ”Tony’ yesterday.
From across the way –
“@margokingston1: Bloody hell! Via @squig_ #turc breaches its own directions to parties on disclosing emails –
That should settle any questions regarding emails”
