BIKIE GANG POLITICS: Alan Jones lays down the law to Alex Hawke on Liberal faction war

alanjones450Alan Jones’s ongoing interest and willingness to intervene in the NSW Liberal Right knife-fight is a source of endless fascination and interest to those observing it.

The King of Sydney talkback radio has a huge audience and is revered as a conservative lion among NSW Liberals.

His editorial on recent events in the party is so tough on Alex Hawke that it’s enough to make you wonder whether at some point it becomes career limiting for the lad. At the moment, Hawke supporters shrug it off, insisting it won’t hurt in the long run and that it’s prompted by Jones’s association with supporters of the Clarke faction.

The weekend’s article on a the smoking of a peace pipe between the two warring Liberal Right chieftains contained Hawke offering a “no comment” in response to questions about David Clarke’s future. Some Clarke supporters consider that to be code for Hawke’s willingness and desire to “go after” his former mentor, potentially depriving him of preselection.

We can’t see that happening.

The NSW Liberal party is on the verge of winning government – by default – from an electorate that is waiting for state Labor with a baseball bat. The government-in-waiting doesn’t have much to do except wait while some position themselves for maximum advantage.

By occasionally siding with David Clarke’s opponents, Hawke has broadened by his base and could potentially emerge as a dominant figure in NSW Liberal politics.

But the risk and potential price for this forward thrust (and leaving behind former allies) could be high. Clarke is a shrewd operator who has an advantage all too rare in politics these days: he stands for something and is utterly consistent about it. There aren’t many in politics like that. And while his views attract lashings of criticism in the left-wing media, it’s won him plenty of friends too. Including, from a distance, Alan Jones.

Trying to take out Clarke, if that’s what Hawke has planned, seems very unwise.

In the high-stakes poker tournament that is NSW Liberal factional politics, Jones is the wild card and it seems he is playing himself into the game regularly. The impact is at this stage unknown. But it can’t be good for an ambitious Liberal federal MP to be accused of “bikie gang tactics” and of being a “cancer” on the party he serves by Sydney radio’s dominant conservative voice.

Hawke’s supporters say he is unfazed. But they don’t sound very convincing on that issue at least.

Here are the remarks in full, which have been obtained VEXNEWS:

Just on the Liberal Party this 32-year-old member for Mitchell Alex Hawke has got himself into the news again. The argument being there has been a fallout between him and David Clarke. David Clarke is the Liberal Upper House MLC in the New South Wales parliament. I don’t know either of them but if you had to make a choice as to who you would like to meet I would take David Clarke any day.

David Clarke has said I don’t believe the Internet should be used as a licence for people to make anonymous allegations against others without them having to accept legal responsibility for what they say. I wonder how that applies to Alex Hawke?

Alan Jones: (Alex Hawke) is a fellow who has developed bikie gang tactics in Liberal Party politics in NSW.

This is a fellow who has developed bikie gang tactics in Liberal Party politics in NSW. He pretends he is the injured party and that he has nothing to do with it but I have a file here you could jump over of young people making statutory declarations testifying to the disgraceful behaviour of this fellow Hawke who will vilify and defame anyone he doesn’t like in the party and organise in the most undemocratic way numbers for people whose fawning support he enjoys.

There is apparently some bloke called Farlow, Scott Farlow who is one of the team and this bloke Alex Hawke is in the Federal parliament and the Liberal Party are seeking government in New South Wales.

Barry O’Farrell needs to get active here and Malcolm Turnbull as well. I repeat, the behaviour of this fellow Alex Hawke is now at last being exposed. He is a cancer on the Liberal Party in New South Wales and here he is in a weekend story in the Sun Herald where Mr Hawke claims he has calmed down and that becoming and MP has made him more moderate. Who does the bloke think he is kidding? I repeat, from the material in front of me, sent to me by people in the Liberal Party to frightened to speak out, because under Liberal Party rules if you speak out against anything in the Party they will expel you. How democratic  is that ?

And, the President of the Party, this fellow Nick Campbell is supposedly a supporter of Alex Hawke. This is not an ethnic purge but a factional purge of the Liberal Party that threatens to derail Barry O’Farell.

Alan Jones: I have said many times and I will say it again – there is only one way for this to be stopped and that is the preselection of this fellow Hawke for the seat of Mitchell to be withdrawn sooner rather than later.

I have said many times and I will say it again – there is only one way for this to be stopped and that is the preselection of this fellow Hawke for the seat of Mitchell to be withdrawn sooner rather than later.

Jones also draws our attention to an excellent article on Michael Towke, who was preselected as a federal Liberal candidate before being rather brutally removed after a media campaign against him:

There is a postscript to that by the way and the Liberal Party in New South Wales. Paul Sheehan, the distinguished journalist wrote a piece yesterday that appeared in the Sydney Morning Herald about one Michael Towke and his preselection by the Liberal Party in July 2007 for the Liberal seat of Cook to replace the then outgoing member Bruce Baird. So, this fellow Towke was preselected.  Paul Sheehan writes that from that point on the Lebanese Australian was attacked in the media with leaks from, as Paul Sheehan says, two senior people from within the Liberal Party whose identity is known to a widening circle within the party. And, as Paul Sheehan writes, News Ltd newspapers went after him, this bloke Towke.

In Paul Sheehan’s words “leaks and spears”. The result: a second ballot was ordered and Scott Morrison won the seat. Towke, for all that had been written about him in Paul Sheehan’s words was portrayed as a serial liar and an exaggerator took News Ltd to court for the stories written about him where he disputed every imputation as factual evidence.

According to Paul Sheehan shortly before the matter was to begin in court this month Nationwide News paid and settled. Paul Sheehan writes that it is telling that experienced Telegraph journalists appear to have based their stories on sources they trusted, suggesting those doing the leaking, this is from within the Liberal Party, were both senior figures and seasoned in dealing with the media. He ends his piece yesterday by saying that two years later Towke’s honour has been restored, his name has been cleared, his standing in the party rehabilitated and his ties to the electorate broadened.  Justice will be served only when the two assassins within the party are politically terminated. That process has begun, writes Paul Sheehan. No names.

The Party Paul Sheehan is writing about is the Liberal Party. The assassins are alive. But, they had better know that the wagons are circling. The Towke story confirms what I am saying. There are people in the Liberal Party whose behaviour owes more to bikie gang politics than it does to liberal democracy.

  6. Hawke’s days are numbered.

    Jones is doing a good job of destroying him.

    He deserves it. Everyone did work to put him into Parliament, he convinced us all that it was about purging the moderates from the Liberal Party, all about the cause of conservatism, and then turned around- after he got into Parliament, shafted Perrotet and Clarke- and turns out he was never a conservative to begin with!!!!

    He never recruited people to the Liberal Party- he simply didn’t have the social skills to have built the friendship circles required to be able to do that- sure, he was a great administrative person, but all the stacking was us- he had to rely on every one else to get him the numbers! The only thing that counts! The thing that got him into Parliament!

    When you behave that way, your career doesn’t last too long… and it tells you why personally he has always been a failure- no friends, no personality, no talent and no loyalty. There is nothing stirring about Hawke. Someone like that should not be in our Parliament.

    Hawke is “Group”. What we always fought against (or for, really).

  7. First I was a double agent infiltrating the “Group” with Kyle Kutasi in order to gain an advantage for the right.

    Then I retreated to the safety of the right effectively turning on my Group supporters.

    Then I turned on the same people who supported me originally and empowered the Group while weakening the right.

    I’m confused.

    – So that means capitalism and christianity are NO LONGER the two greatest forces in Western civilisation;

    – that abortion will NOT be coming back bigger and better; and that.

    – Alan Jones is pure evil.

    – and fiddling around with party rules to stay in power is fine by me.

    – If you believe in heroin injecting rooms, lowering the homosexual age of consent or that the Liberal Party should be a brothel rather than a broad church you are more than welcome to stay.

  33. The sections of the Liberal party responsible for the appalling treatment of Towke are the same sections with whom Hawke and Campbell now ally themselves, rorting the democratic processes of the Liberal party and seeking to trash good members of the party and their reputations.
    Hawke and Campbell run with the Left, vote with them, assist them, betraying the ideals and principles that genuine Conservatives hold.
    As Jones stated, the wagons are starting to circle. As Joe Louis famously said, “you can run but you can’t hide.”
    You can call Police and issue false statements, you can attempt to thwart the grassroots of the Party for only so long.

He is working with Photios, Turnbull and O’Farell (all the group) to gain control of the party with bikie gang tactics. He doesn’t stand for anything. Thank heavens none of the media are on his side anymore. It isn’t appropriate having someone in parliament who calls Catholics Nazis, representing such a vibrant Catholic community that is in Mitchell. Rather like having Stalin ruling Russia and terrorising the decent Russian Orthodox people. Oh that’s right, Alex is a Stalinist running a Stalinist regime with Nick Cambell, and Scott Farlow. As one great American commentator says, it’s interesting how it is the one’s who scream fascist first often are the main ones showing fascist tendencies.

You have this idea in your fucked up head that we lost the federal election because of conservative principle. We fought on that principle and WON in 1996 through to 2004, you dimwit! The primary reason why we the lost the last election was because the electorate were tired and wanted a change. It has nothing to do with conservative ideology, where you base your claims on the mere fact that we shouldn’t have even had them in the first place. You sir, are an idiot frankly. Why don’t you rack off and go bother the Democrats? For what it’s worth, you would actually have far more success in the Democrats with your views. Lets be clear here for a second. You have progressive libertarian ideas, and so did Don Chipp. Why don’t you go? Come on, GIVE ME YOUR HAND! I’ll help you!! So if did end up going to the Democrats, that would mean following them in everything. And fortunately that means FAILURE. And you are a desperate university bum and weirdo who should be told by the membership of the party to leave. You don’t belong in the party, and you should have all of your rights forcibly removed from you if you don’t follow what clearly the majority of the membership want. Do us all a favour and take your sexually deranged ideas with you too.

  63. Alex “Triple-0” Hawke is now the laughingstock of Australian politics

    The New South Wales Government has tried to embarrass the Liberals in parliament over a factional split in the right-wing of the party.

    Police Minister Michael Daley was answering a question about ATM crime but he could not resist raising the fact that police were called to the office of federal MP Alex Hawke last month, when tensions boiled over at a young Liberals meeting.

    Mr Hawke says he called the police when about 40 uninvited people tried to force their way into a meeting at his Castle Hill office.

    Those from the rival faction say they had every right to be at the meeting and claim Mr Hawke only called police when he realised his supporters were outnumbered.

    Police say 13 officers went to the Castle Hill office after the complaint, but no action was taken.

    Mr Daley says police resources should not be used to solve ‘factional warfare’ within the Liberal party.

    “It all sounds quite funny, Mr Speaker, but the allocation of police resources is a serious task and it can have implications for the safety of the whole community,” Mr Daley told parliament.

    “Police resources should not be diverted into standover tactics and they shouldn’t have to intervene in the ongoing factional warfare between the Leader of the Opposition’s numbers and the members of the religious right,’ he said.

  76. Yes –

    Alex Hawke may be ambitious. He may be ambitious to the point of blowing up his career and dragging some others down with him – or not ..

    That is one of the ironies of politics within parties that are nominally about individualism – how do you constrain self-serving individual behaviour that may be counter-productive to the entity ?

    Answer: Probably you don’t. You let the dice roll and see how it plays. At the end of the day neither Alex Hawke or David Clarke are likely to be more than minor footnotes in the political history of NSW.

    And when did we as a society ever set any criteria for political participation – other than some capacity not to arguably risk dropping dead from ill-health during the term of office ? Ambition – good or bad ambition – just does not tick a box as a criteria. It just is a driver below the radar. eg K Rudd wanted the top political job more fiercely than anyone else in Australia – but he does a great line in looking humbled and surprised about winning the job he elbowed everyone else out of the way for. So he never gets critiqued as ‘ambitious’.

    And at the end of the day – what difference have either Clarke or Hawke made – I would be happy to be stood corrected as to their individual decisive policy agendas – other than they want to occupy positions that they can deny to others they disagree with ?

    Nick Campbell note – now there IS a subtle agenda. Assiduous working to an influential position; apparent near blank cheque support from an unlikely employer for huge commitment to a cause that most businesses in Australia simply will not engage in; and – no proof possible – but quietly confident that he would be keen to see the leader of the Party in the state parliament rolled and replaced by …. ??

    Nicely focused but unclear ambition yet again. Huge investment in the target with obvious downside for family, employer and possibly conventional career. And absent a clear agenda – to what other obvious end other than the accumulation of ( some ) power ? More unclear ambition.

    Qualified power because – the battle lines are increasingly drawn between the parties and followers left and right of centre; the notional enemy is drawn up and obvious; and yet bizarrely we see state politics of the right-of-centre an almost agenda-less battle over the bitter ashes of defeat ?

    The issue at hand is real and noteworthy – and yet almost meaningless for the country. Strange days.

  77. I agree with th guy above in that while Hawke and Clarke and punching each other out, Nick Campbell seems to descend over the land like a dark cloud

    Posted by Tom | October 30, 2009, 0:23
  78. what’s with all the anti-Catholic stuff coming from Hawke supporters?

    You all well know (and Hawke certainly does) that many of Clarke’s supporters are not Catholic. heck, some arent even religious.

    Posted by Mike Honcho | October 30, 2009, 2:07
  79. And what’s with Michael Photios doing grubby deals with Alex Hawke and Nick Campbell these days? Perhaps these people need to get dressed up in drag and show Photios a good time. Because knowing how the two operate, sooner or later they are going to have to repay Photios for his support somehow. And knowing that their position of power is declining, it wont be long until Photios calls in the debt.

    Posted by David Hull | October 30, 2009, 6:08
  80. I think the question is not Hawke’s ambition, but his sudden change of beliefs and his ability to turn on those who supported him with no compunction whatsoever. Yes, someone with no life experience like Hawke probably would genuinely change their beleifs more readily than those who have worked a real job and experienced real life setbacks. These make an individual’s character stronger and more grounded. However, Hawke’s lack of judgement in sacrificing his support base in order to curry favour with an electorally unpopular Malcolm Turnbull is more dangerous – we need politicians with good judgement to carry through the nation in difficult times.

  81. Once more the NSW Liberal Party descends into childish in-fighting instead of concentrating on the main game.
    IT is simply unbelievable that the first comments to this story reveal the modus operandi of some people – attacking the player and not the ball.
    WHAT I want to know is the names of the 2 senior Liberals who fed the story to News Limited journalists, who printed it.
    IT is clear that News Limited believed the story was factual at the time it was printed, presumably relying on the “credibility” of these 2 senior Liberals. HOWEVER, when it came to proving the truth of the story, it seems News Ltd was unable to rely upon the statements of these 2 senior Liberals, and was forced to settle out of court.
    As a community member I want to know the names of these 2 senior Liberals, because I never want these 2 people anywhere near having a “hands on the levers” of taxpayers affairs. PUT simply they cannot be trusted. They have form.

  85. Let’s get is straight about Towke. He was obliged to disclose to the Liberal Party anything which might have compromised his candidacy BEFORE he contested preselection. He didn’t. The motion to disendorse him was supported the right wing dominated State Executive who had previously supported him for the Cook preselection. They dumped him, not because of the Daily Telegraph but because they were privy to information which he should have disclosed but didn’t. One of the pieces of information he did not disclose was that he had been a part owner of a brothel. Mr Towke is a long way from being rehabilitated.

    Chad, despite your stated back complaint, you did an admirable job and your help with the chairs was very much appreciated by all in attendance.

    We know that the outcome of the vote was very distressing for you. 15 branches and 120 votes to nil in favour of the Hawke ticket sure looks embarrassing to your Opus Dei faction. However, it’s really ok Chad, you do still have some friends left. I mean, you did bring Morgan along and I think some guy called Toolshed accepted a lift home from you?

    Secularist see that it is fine for a person to have their politcal views informed by numerous types ideologies (some which are almost religious in terms of the grip they have on people) like Marxism, nazism, atheism, anarcho-capitalism, environmentalism, socialism, feminism, conservatism etc. but for some reason religious politicians are supposed to leave their ideals at the doors of parliament.

    We know you plan to take over the world in the name of the Young Liberals and declare yourself a God – even though you say you only believe in yourself.
    You have started the new Taliban to destroy the people who helped get you to Parliament.

    Andrew and Mark might get down on their Knees each morning and service you but I don’t think much of you.
    AH is not capable of telling the truth. He tells lies like no one else can or will.
    He said I would make a great member for Wentworth, if I worked hard enough.
    I heard he tried to promise Mother Teresa the seat Bennelong until he found out she was dead.
    He offered the great Libyan leader Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi a position on the board of Johnson and Johnson.

    I also hear that this wont be the last event the media will be rocking up to. Why on earth would the media have such interest in a “creepy little weirdo” backbencher like Alex Hawke anyway? They must really know something… I wonder? Or are preparing for something more catastrophic? Either way, when the people of Mitchell finally come to their senses they will soon realise that they were all part of some type of mushroom club conspiracy. Cooked up, just like the bikie gangs do in a lab at Johnson & Johnson and feed to these “blind followers” in the form of false promises, lies and attacking their own patriots. Well, when the people finally realise how they’ve been taken for a ride, they’ll strike! And let me tell you, I wouldn’t want to be Alex Hawke for quids! The gentleman (or should I say, graceful foe) is on the way to getting a head kicking from one John Howard. No, no, no… sorry, Bill Heffernan (the head kicker) is going to kick his head in, after all, he is the real headkicker for John Howard. And when Bill gets back at Hawke for white-anting him, well, the public will just watch on in astonishment. A public flogging in the Senate courtyard. Oh wait a minute… these are the tactics of the Great Leader of the Flies, wait a sec… it’s the lord of the flies! Surely these harsh tactics implemented and rammed through the Liberal state conference wont apply to Hawke, surely not? Well, they wont! He has the POWER!!! Don’t be fooled, Nick Campbell will just bring his name into disrepute. Liberal factionalism 101 – don’t hold down a job in the private sector if you’re a factional boss.

    I wonder when Nick Campbell will be called to account by Kaye Foster-Cheek for bringing the name of Johnson & Johnson into disrepute and causing damage. Does J&J really want their corporate name dragged to the lowest point of irrepreable damage in Australia? Johnson and Johnson should look in a freaky glare over to Alex Hawke and say “Thanks ALOT, for nothing!” when they realise that the cancer and pathogen parastic clown has caused much embarrassment for their company over some factional squabbles.

    Yes, I think we need to look at the Liberal party state executive and get new people involved. Enough of Natasha “Mc-feast” McLaren! What has she ever done for the party, let alone people like me here in LOWE? Time to get up and push her out of the party and send her packing to McDonalds where she can gouge her face. And I hear Burwood McDonalds has an opening! Boy oh boy, what else can we do with some of these hacks?

    Mark Chan, yes… someone who should not be working in finance. A stingey parasite who came here on a boat, and now works for GE…? Go figure!

    Scott Farlow, the son of a used car salesman… went to a public school and was proud to count such friends as Michael Costa for doing so. “Stick to your horse” he would say, as the bales of hay in the paddock bore no significant gain. Retire to the Southern Highlands?

    Amy Houston – where is this “In a complicated relationship” with Tobias Lehmann scrag gone? Did the pressure over recent events cause her too much distress? Oh, that’s too bad. I saw her riding her motorbike up Burwood Road one day. And yet she works in (or did work in – which one is it?) Alex Hawke, the Member for Mitchell’s electorate office. Alan Jones is spot on the money Sonny! He said Alex Hawke and his little club of tikes on bikes are “political bikie gangs”. Well I wonder if Hawke is planning on buying a Harley Davidson from the Houston’s?

    Tobias Lehmann – Hasn’t learnt his lesson since his intoxicating and trouble making bender. Keep a close eye on this guy. He’ll go places! Tredding on the toes of people on a harbour cruise, and acting like an all round lout and violent thug. Tobias seems to be a German name? Yes… well, there goes the Adolf! connection once more!

    Abi Shead – is she going to not wear any underpants to future Young Liberal balls? I wonder if it’s Paris Hilton, or Britney Spears that she’s trying to follow? Either way, it didn’t stop here getting a gentle rub underneath the table from one ….

    Sophie Holman – Demented, crazy poo poo bar. Connan O’Brien look alike! That chin sure did keep many blokes happy. Her USP (unique selling point) was her chin!

    Michelle Crisp – Metamuical carrot eater that went out with a busi… **** ******! Oh dear oh dear. Sad sad fact of life running around town for a …

    Irfan Yusuf – a plant in the grand scheme to further Hawke’s human factional pyraid scheme. When will this pyramid fall over and be revelaed like the Abu Graib poison that it is? You better ask Irfan, because we hear he’s not only managing Alex Hawke’s media, but, also Malcolm Turnbull’s! Great strategy there Irfan! Getting MAL to attack Alan Jones on breakfast radio this morning, on a day when he increased his audience! Great strategy… but then again the direction probably came from Alex Hawke.

    Alex Hawke – He was baptised a Christian, goes to Hillsong occasionally, but is really a SECRET Muslim. Wonder when he’ll head to the mosque with he and Nick Campbell’s new friend, Hazel El Masri? And when he doesn’t get his own segregated prayer space, and when he’s criticsed for his lack of goateeee then he’ll call in the cops. I wonder if they’ll assign their own police wing to Alex Hawke?

    Who else…? Let’s keep going shall we? What? You don’t like it?!?! Well sit back and enjoy the deep prodding of your backside just a lil more!

    Sasha Uher – wonder if she’ll just end up in the Czech Republic like a “hitch-bitch” one of these days?

    Scott and Kirsty Lloyd – Muppets who have blindly gone where no other Muppet has gone before. Into Alex Hawke’s private shower! Ohhh no. The truth hurts, especially when you thought no one was watching, and no one took notes and thought he hid them! Oh dear.

    Until next time folks. Keep up the fight! The mighty John Howard will be proud of you people out there in the suburbs fighting each other and squabbling like spoilt kids in the sand pit. Government was obviously a luxury too good for some of you. Grow up and realise what really matters before it’s too late.

  138. Well the police aren’t going to be duped into crashing one of my placid branch meetings again so who do you think I should call to throw a spanner in the works for the next one:

    The fire brigade, get Jefferies to feign a heart attack and call the ambos, tell ASIO that the Taliban will be in attendance at my next meeting (I just won’t tell them that it’s not the Taliban they’re thinking of) or my personal favourite get Ben Franklin to stoll in naked and watch the jaws drop.

    Where was Abrams, where were the Parrottays? Where was David “Uncle Arthur” Clarke?

  146. yes, the horse came 2nd…just like Hawke, he will wasn’t the eventual winner.

  147. We need to take Hawke on a tour of Bart Cummings’ stables so he can get kicked in the teeth by a thoroughbred philly. He can back up for a bit of insemination from a thoroughbred stallion! Wouldn’t put it past him… maybe then he’ll realise what it’s like to be screwed!

  148. Alex, When can we do that Greek wrestling like we did the other day?
    I really loved it when you covered yourself with that Johnso and johnson Baby Oil, that Nick supplied.
    You know what they say about Greeks don’t you, but I don’t care!
    What about if we can play Navy positions, you can be the rear Admiral.
    Who cares what they say you are the only leader the New Left.

    Posted by Michael Phartios | November 3, 2009, 17:49
  149. Michael, You said you were going to keep the Greek wrestling with Johnson and Johnson baby oil a secret.
    I am very pleased that you acknowledge me as the leader of the New Left.
    You can address, I said ADDRESS (not undress) me as the Groupie Supremo.
    Love Alex

  150. Michael you said you were going to tell me when you were doing the Greek wrestling with Alex, you know I love taking pictures.
    Do you think Alex can guess we are going to pay him back for what he did to John Brogden? Just keep wrestling with him and we can get him into a strangle hold.
    Don’t call me White boy.
    Love Gareth

  153. I would love to see Ben Franklin stroll naked, how novel, can someone give me my Glasses, I can’t see, who turned off the lights. I find things are distorted from my viewpoint, like any far Left wing luny. It is good to have Alex on our side, he makes us look normal.
    Don’t call me White Boy

    Posted by Garth Ward | November 3, 2009, 18:24
  154. Who called me normal, call the Police call the Fire Brigade call the CIA.
    No; No; No; Call Nick (the Dick) Shambles. Quick Nick get out the Baby oil we can get down with the New Left and we can make it the new GROUP.
    Love Alex – Keep that Whit Boy away he makes my skin crawl.

  158. Vexers,

    We have a new opening in our marketing division. Applicants must be intelligent, emotionally stable, competent and focused on the job.

    Previous applicants (and employees) need not reapply.

    Regards,

    HR Sydney Ferries.

  159. Don’t worry Sydney Ferries, we don’t want Fontana either.

    Posted by Sydney Water | November 3, 2009, 23:23
  160. Could I apply for the Sydney Ferries job?

    I am suitably qualified. I’m lazy, useless and I believe anything that my superiors tell me. I’ve never worked a fulltime job in my life and I don’t even drive.

    Please pick me, Sydney Ferries….

  162. I’m a carer for a Disabled Pensioner “Tomerong Tali” and I save the Australian taxpayer bucket loads of money every year by caring for my flat-mate at home, this is why I have not consistently worked on a full-time basis over the past 2 years that is true, although in fact I have worked full-time for much of that time anyway.

    If you are who I think you are, the Australian tax-payer is seemingly getting a lot more value for money out of me than they are out of you wasting your time, your life and our tax dollars writing defamatory crap from an MP’s office.

    And to think I used to consider you a mate, how sad all this has become.

    Regards,

    Michael Davis.

  163. I twice didn’t have the numbers at twice got back in unopposed to the Senate.

    I have never been a member of the Right, yet on both occasions they supported me because of my good mate Nick Shambles and his deals.

    I am also fat and a dyke… and i am not Natasha Maclaren.

    Who am I?

  164. Alex. It is so good to catch up with you each week and have a Coffee with you in Castle Hill. I hope no one saw us when we met that time in Peter’s place. I did not think it was very discrete.
    You give me all the latest Fallacious rumors you make up regarding the Liberal Party in the Hills and the information about David. I can use all the stories to fill up my News Paper each week, as you know. I hope you don’t set me up like the time you messed up with the Telegraph.
    But don’t worry, I am really your best friend, I really want to help you out and put in Nigel next time. We put in so much effort for Nigel last time but I think with your destabilizing narcissistic nature you will help put Nigel in next time anyway.
    I hope you don’t get expelled from the Party for talking to the press, because you are such a good source of information, what would Nick, Barry or Michael say.

    Thanks for all the help
    Col.

  165. Hey Charlie,

    When are you bringing that retard Stephen Jury north? The way things are going we need another Jimmy Rowe wannabe to take on the mainstream.

    HELP!

  166. Wow, David Hull, if all you’ve got is fat-jokes, I worry about your future (and for the women in your life, assuming you’ve come close to meeting a real one).

    I hear Sydney Ferries has an opening, their standards are so low they’ll reinforce wharves rather than hire intelligent skippers.
