A student, a decent young woman, dragged away in front of all... 2 months and she would've graduated.... This is the modern Australia....

Interesting thread, SD.

I liked this previous work of yours. Summed up to a T!

"Blowin, so you used to vote for Labor, want labor to be more like Sally McManus, but in the meantime vote for Hanson, the COMPLETE OPPOSITE of McManus????? bahahahahahahaha.......
Just stop it RIGHT THERE before I do a hernia laughing!!!!!!! No..... You are using all of that crap to masquerade your real reasons for voting for Hanson.
Just stop it."

"What are my real reasons ?"

"Everything you've stated here over the past few years since I've been reading your posts.
The 2 main ones being "illegals", and aboriginals.

It also REALLY surprises me that you want a Labor Party with an outlook like Sally McManus;

"Sally has also been an active in campaigns for the rights of women, ASYLUM SEEKERS and people with disabilities.",220

"Sally McManus who is president of the ASU's NSW/ACT branch said it was clear her members did not want their retirement savings invested in supporting the mandatory detention of asylum seekers."

"“Many refugees and asylum seekers have had to flee their country because they have done the types of things I do all the time – speak up against decisions of Governments or power interests or participate in protests. I am not locked up or persecuted for this. The people who make it half way around the world to our shores in these circumstances are some of the bravest freedom fighters on the planet. We should be proud to welcome them to Australia, I know I am.” -Sally McManus"

So.... I call bullshit on your "This is the type of labor party I want - Sally McManus", simply by your well documented opinions on refugees. And you could vote for Lib Dems, Xenophon, Greens, independent if "sticking it" to the majors was you main imperative. But you chose the party the MOST furthest away ideologically from "McManus style Labor", the party with the most fervent hatred of "illegals".

Perhaps it's the "manus" in McManus you like."



These days it's Chinese and Indian grandmothers too.

Muslims are soooooo yesterday.

Wouldn’t go near McManus with a ten foot pole.

As soon as she bleated the “reduced immigration is racism “ line she disappeared into the homogeneous mass of unvote worthy ALP disappointment.

I hope you’ve got another career lined up , Facto. ALP aren’t going to be in power again any time soon.

You’ve got that unjustified belief in your own intelligence , patronising vibe of the school teacher about you. Maybe give that a shot. Lowest HSC requirements possible.

McManus would be stoked you're not going anywhere near her, I wager. No PVO required (I hope).

Hahaha. And my CV ever expands.

According to you.

Which we all know is, well, y'know...

the way the media uses distractions, the irony in the title is hilarious -at a time when mass hysteria is being promoted, remember this day:

Looks like more chaff on the Grafton radar this arvo.
Appears as weird wavy streaks of rain on the radar, when there is no rain. Fairly common to see them in SE Qld and NE NSW.

From a random article I googled on the subject (about a chaff exercise in Sydney one time):

"A spokesperson from the Australian Department of Defence said chaff was used as part of a “routine fighter jet aircrew” training exercise.
Known as chaff, it’s a radar countermeasure in which aircraft or other military targets spread a cloud of small, thin pieces of aluminium, metallised glass fibre or plastic. The radar-jamming material either appears as a cluster of targets on radar screens or overwhelms the screen with hundreds of returns, or “false echoes”.
“The idea of it is that it hides what they’re doing underneath it,” Mr Creed explained. “They’re doing manoeuvres with their aircraft. They drop this chaff and it spreads out and then it creates an echo so you can’t see individual movements.”"
