Being in Opposition is horrible. And even the best and brightest Liberals in the land are making an absolute debacle of it at the moment. With the assistance of the Wiggles, we have burst into song. Kudos to the VEXNEWS contributor for suggesting the track, very apt.
The Left love to hate Phillip Ruddock after he single-handedly crushed the people smuggling industry with the zeal and skill of a feisty small-town sherriff. Subverting their assumptions is that he’s actually a Liberal Lefty, Amnesty badge wearer and all-round bleeding heart. Such is their confusion that they’ve invented a “right-wing” challenge to his preselection and blame state frontbencher Greg Smith for it. Smith’s emphatic on the record denial does make them look rather stupid.
The Age newspaper is threatening to sue a newsagent in the bushfire ravaged Melbourne’s outer north who is having trouble delivering on weekends after their delivery driver had his house burned to the ground and had to move out of the area to have a place to live.
Not even in the world of Persian carpet liquidation sales are 97.5% discounts possible. At The Aged newspaper, they use discounting so deep they are journeying into the centre of the Earth. Melbourne Footy Club members – all six of them – can get The Age delivered for a year for $25. And even $15 of that is sent to the ailing club. If it wasn’t a fraud on advertisers, it would be the biggest joke in media.
