Belated Birthday Bash

Birthday Bash!

It’s been a pleasantly cool weekend in Melbourne, so as promised here is the thread to celebrate The Pub’s sixth birtday.

What an amazing ride it has been!

Thank you so much to The Boss, Joe6pack, for starting the site, and for his firm but always fair treatment of us Pubsters, even when we become a little rowdy …

Thank you to Bushfire Bill and C@tmomma for being excellent moderators and post authors. I hope “retirement” is going well.

And thank you to our new moderators, Leone and This Little Black Duck. Superb choices!

A quick note on this evening’s Raffle: I will start issuing numbers at 6pm Pub time (i.e., 7pm in NSW, VIC, and Mania, 6:30pm in SA, 5:30pm in NT, and 4pm in WA, with a view to drawing about an hour later.

2019 looks as though it should be even wilder than 2018. My prediction is for a successful coup by Dutton, followed rapidly by an election (HoR and half Senate) in February.

Fasten your seatbelts, mes amis – it’s going to be a rough flight.

Letter to the Prime Minister

Prime Minister,

On 18 September 2013, you were made Minister for Immigration and Border Protection. You set in place certain policies and practices.

On 17 February 2014, I, Reza Barati, from Iran, prisoner on Manus Island, died from beatings by prison guards and Manus Islanders.

On 22 June 2014, I, Sayed Ibrahim Hussein, from Pakistan, prisoner on Nauru, drowned in the ocean.

On 5 September 2014, I, Hamid Kehazaei, from Iran, prisoner on Manus Island, died from untreated septicemia.

On 29 April 2016, I, Omid Masoumali, from Iran, prisoner on Nauru, died when I killed myself.

On 11 May 2016, I, Rakib Khan, from Sri Lanka, prisoner on Nauru, died from an overdose

On 2 August 2016, I, Kamil Hussain, from Pakistan, prisoner on Manus Island, died swimming.

On 24 December 2016, I, Faysal Ishak Ahmed, from Sudan, prisoner on Manus Island, died from untreated seizures.

On 7 August 2017, I, Hamed Shamshiripour, from Iran, prisoner on Manus Island, died when I killed myself.

You failed in your duty of care: you killed us.

In that time, you have taken more than one million dollars from Australian taxpayers. Is eighty thousand dollars sufficient reward for each of the twelve lives?

We feel so sorry for your God.
