  • Well Abbott has spoken finally about his good friend Brough. After his former good friend was unceremoniously defamed, destroyed personally and politically by the Abbott crew, he personally selected Brough as his replacement.
    "Well ah.. ahh... um.. I haven't read the judgement."
    "Why is that Mr Abbott?"
    "aah.. um.... arr because I've been doing very important things for Australia."
    Here's a tip rabbit, if you want to be Prime Minister of Australia you had better be across everything that is happening here. Especially when your judgment and honesty is being called into question.
    And you need to work. You spend half a lifetime on planes on your holiday just now, did you spend the whole time drinking?

  • Harry! Harry! are you there Harry!

    That is what this is all about Harry, saving Slippers Political arse.

    Or is it true that you rusted on ALP supporters really do live in a parallel dimension?

  • James W. I did not write that Peter Slipper had been removed.

    Is English your second language or is it that you are just so incensed that this openly political attack from the bench is not going to be swallowed by the Thinking punter?

    The attempted removal of Peter Slipper from Parliament is what Craig Emerson is accusing the Coalition of.

    The attack by both main political parties had commenced long before he defected and became Speaker.

    ONE ~ It is obvious that Slipper retained his pre-selection by default through the LNP Grandfather clause, he had already shown himself to be the poor excuse for a human being he is. (disgusting SMS messages and the Right To Rule mentality, he has found his rightful place in the ALP)

    TWO ~ He knew his days were numbered, so for his own self aggrandisement and a larger retirement package he accepted the nomination as Speaker then defected to the offered protection of the ALP.

    THREE ~ The ALP was on the verge of losing the support of Andrew Wilkie over the Poker machines.

    Slipper was easily bribed and cajoled by the master manipulator Miss Gillard to shore up the Government numbers.

  • I'm sure you know what you are on about BELLA but absolutely no one else has mentioned Slipper in this subject. Not even the nimrods.

    Harry Tuesday 18 December, 2012 - 3:29 PM
  • Bella, when did the 'removal of Peter Slipper from the Parliament' occur? Best I can tell he is still a Member of Parliament.
