The Politics Thread

Now I'm no fan of Lauren Southern but if this is true then I think it's bullshit. Highly religious? Oh I see there's religious and then there's highly religious is there? And if it's highly religious then everyone better just STFU and stay away.

“I’ve got grave concerns that you may cause an imminent breach of the peace down there, so I’m asking you not to attend,” Inspector Rick Agius told the broadcaster.

“It’s highly religious down there... your presence may cause (locals) to be offensive, to be objective of you attending there. You’re not welcome in there.”

Maybe worded poorly - obviously she wanted to cause shit and that's what the cops were probably worried about - that she intended to try and stir shit up.  As far as her commenting that people were watching her etc - go down any street anywhere with a heap of security and a film crew and people are gonna be watching and checking you out.  Even more so when they have to squint really hard while they try and work out who she actually is, cause they have no clue!

Kardashian syndrome at it's best - when you've promoted yourself so much you become someone when you're actually no-one.

So no protesting any more?  Cos you know that might be stirring up shit. If we've lost the right to protest then it's a sad day indeed.

It's like those muppets up here at Kuraby recently.

If you're deliberately going to a place to stir up shit, and the cops have a reasonable understanding of that situation, they'll advise you against it.

In the end, she walked where she wanted.

Some coppers stopped her and had a chat before she went to the mosque, but she was able to go wherever she wanted.

The fact she got FA resistance means she had to make up another story about it.

Was working at the Sheraton Mirage during the Comm Games.  Malcom Turnbull arrived for a meeting and was greated with a moderate to low level of personal security.  Bill Shorten arrives and nobody gave a flying phuck.  Could have got taken out by a sniper and nobody would have cared.

 

That's because he would have had the place vetted

And we all know that Bill does vetting better than anyone

Yeah, that bit I don't agree with.

The bill should go to the protest directors/arrangers for sure.

Those muppets who closed the freeway down for example, they should be paying through the nose.

OK, so he really must be a dead set goof!  Complained endlessly when the media kept on at his personal life, begging them to leave him alone!  And held endless press conferences to say that!  Now, finally things are dying down and he's released a book and is doing the media rounds promoting it!  WTF BJ, I swear you deserve to not sell a single copy of it, and anyone who wants to read it needs their head checked!  Just let him die down into the obscurity he deserves...

So, US growth figures hit 4.1%.

And they said that was impossible. 

Clearly not.  

So much for the opinion of a leftist Nobel prize winning economist.

It's officially a joke that the Nationals have not removed his preselection.  Shame that the people of New England seem to get dud after dud representatives for the last 2 decades - fantastic part of the world and the birthplace of our federation that deserves better

The difference in the treatment of Joyce and that dished out to Husar the past couple of weeks have been stark.

Unsubstantiated internal complaint was front page splash and subsequent "not proven" finding barely made a ripple, but she still got pushed from her seat.

Vs the Barnaby's now admitted pissed up lechery and affair got him re-elected and book deal.

Plus 8-12 months of media silence because it wasn't a public interest issue.

Women just don't belong in politics........

Note: I meant that sarcastically, tongue in check, and still just got struck by lightning and my wife will berate me later for that too...
