how crap is this government ?

Recommended Posts

hahaha - shows how pointless writing english correctly really is - we tend to see words in context as what would be the likely spelling, whether it's correct or not

 

but with the clarification, i like kimmo's comment 🙂

 

no such thing as a cheap joke, laughter is priceless

And right up until a moment ago I thought it was because I said " egg into head ", and not " egg onto head "

 

... and still I have to wonder if the Brit egg guy had been an anti-Brexit dude would he have gone to jail for 28 days ? ... I hope so, but I do have my doubts

edit : thanks scruffy, for making me go back and reread my post

I guess this will just go down as one of life's little mysteries. I feel like it would probably go the same way. Do we balance out the universe?

The weird thing is, I would've thought Corbyn would be about 100 times more likely to cop shit from anti-Brexit peeps, since he's done fuck-all to oppose it. 

 

Maybe the dude got put away for being enough of a dickhead to egg someone who's basically on his side.

Kimmo is still with the jokes.

 

Corbyn is trying to get his party behind the second referendum... not an entirely successful task tho, some of his MPs are resigning and or baulking big time... so I do doubt Corbyn's affinity with brexit...obviously so did the man in jail for 28 days for egg smashing

Anyone who's been paying attention knows Corbyn has had to be dragged kicking and screaming to that position, which has been a bit bloody annoying, since most Labour folks are remainers.

 

So it would've made more sense for the bloke to shake his hand and say good job for holding out this long.

Given the way the UK has learnt for a while, I don't see why they'd get off any easier.

How good is it to see quotes from Hanson supporting the Bryant conspiracies?

 

How good is it seeing retorts like 'how dare a foreign entity source like AJ get involved in Australian domestic politics'... From people caught trying to get foreign funding for political aims? But also wtf - the ABC can no longer report on foreign affairs?

And yet Corbyn voted in 2016 to remain in the EU ... According to the Sun. Seems he's been a bit shadey re his stance .

 

@Nich... perhaps we could offer jail time as an incentive here too

 

As for Hansen. I figure the head desk/ face palming she'd be dealing herself these days is duly deserved. She keeps picking wrong 'uns to work for her

Hanson has a terrible track record on picking staff and colleagues, and it makes me wonder if she's just terrible at reading people, or if she's terrible at thinking through consequences.

Yes.

 

Oh, was that supposed to be an either/or question?

and she bonked david oldfield (originally a tony abbott staffer; he later failed to gain the local seat from the independent member in  the state elections, and then defected to one nation while still technically tony's employee, after being outed for clandestine political and sexual relations with the ranga)

 

this is yet another demonstration of her weird taste, and poor thinking as noted above

 

and a rather ewwww... reflection on them both, really

Nifty Neville Wran's daughter charged with drug posession.  Not a charge they just throw around so no doubt it was a trafficable quantity.

Though seeing the footage of her, if she pleaded it was for personal use it'd be somewhat believable.

from the little I read, she broke her parole or some such ... I guess if she has family support then that's part of why she doesn't look like your average undernourished druggy

she's recently spent a period at her majesty's leisure after involvement in the killing of a local dealer in sydney

 

so she is not in the situation to expect lenience

 

my reading was she got pulled up in a car with paraphernalia and stolen goods, and her companion did a runner

Hanson and Latham are seeing red. Lol, put it away, you turkeys. Pretty sure Scomo would still be having a bet each way if you hadn't gone and got yourselves busted with your hands in the NRA cookie jar. Take a fucken hike

But I bet QLD Nationals will still put One Nation ahead of the ALP.

I do wonder whether Katter will get some of those votes.

As for the cocky little shits of the ON brigade, if they didn't' factor in coming undone, then I'd give them the same rating as the rest of our political choices. Poor and same-o same -o... Look out every body!

There's not much real difference between Gun Nation and Nutional party in Qld to me.

LNP tax cuts! Fantastic ... but as usual poor peoples get bugger all from it

 

What *is* it with Conservatives?  Supply-side (Trickle-down) economics have not worked in the history of ever.  And yet, world wide, they just keep on doing it.  "This time will be different!  It'll be good this time!"

 

At least the lefties try to change up their mix of socialism every time one of them fails.  (Mind you, they do have *much* bigger failures.)

Socialism treats everyone as a collective, capitalism thinks everyone is money hungry grub. That's pretty much why most governments are an unholy hybrid of both because we're neither as a society.

No, we aren't either - and nor should we be, despite what Leo thinks I think.  There are some really simple and obvious things* that both sides seem happy to ignore, though, and considering that all of those apparent buffoons are lawyers (and you don't pass the Bar if you can't tie your own shoes) it's completely mystifying to me that they just don't fucking get it.

 

*Eg:

Conservatives (LNP for one):

1. There's only so much money in circulation at any given time.

1a. if it's concentrated in the hands of a few they can't spend it fast enough nor in enough sectors to help the economy - their accumulated wealth earns more than they spend, and most of them are inclined to let it.

1b. if poor people get some extra, they will spend it - and nearly all will go back into the domestic economy as food or rent, with a little leaking into clothing and luxury items (which supports jobs anyway, despite mostly being imports).

Therefore, if you want a strong economy, give a lot of people a small break rather than a huge break to a tiny number of people.  (That it happens to be the right thing to do is a happy coincidence.)

 

"Pinko" Liberals (are there any these days?):

2. People respond to rewards: they will try harder or longer for more return.  Conversely, they will generally avoid things that get them punishment.

2a. The relationship is not linear - it's a diminishing return in either case.  When someone get rich enough to meet all needs, there is little incentive to try harder (and there is a maximum effort, anyway); when someone gets poor enough, eventually they'll just give up.

Therefore, a distinct income gradient is a Good Idea, but you need both a minimum and a maximum - though the maximum is tricky to determine (but probably well below allowing billionaires to exist at current dollar value).

Use the extra taxation from the top end to fund programs that help everybody, and not just a few - or corporations.

 

There.  Now I've thoroughly pissed off Leo and Walt on one side, and Kimmo on the other.  I'm going to go have a beer.

Try  what the U.K did back when I lived there - so called "super tax."

 

No idea what genius came up with that but it meant that above a certain taxable income for every pound you earned over that level you paid MORE than a pound in tax.

 

Great incentive idea...

 

No wonder so many of the well heeled became tax refugees.

 

Now we have the "wonderful" Brexit, driving the financial heart of the country off-shore, even Dyson have re-located overseas in anticipation of the looming debacle.

 

Cheers
