I can’t bear to watch the news. Any mention of Parliament, Europe or Brexit risks setting me off.
Still, one must seek amusement somehow — and I do. Lately, amusement has come in the way of cash in plastic Aldi shopping bags. I would love to know how to get a job like that, how do I apply to join the NSW ALP?
If nothing else, the ALP are providing me with a good laugh. In their stronghold, Victoria, things are rapidly falling apart. Their green energy policies are likely to cause serious disruptions this summer. Who cam forget a certain Ms Trad in Queensland? That is simply comical. Barry O’Farrell had to fall on his proverbial sword over a bit of wine, but Jackie Trad has far worse conflicts of interest but after much dithering and vacillating, after much dragging of feet and threatening important projects, she still hasn’t been dislodged. If Queensland votes at the next state election the way it voted at this year’s federal election, I doubt that the hapless Anastasia Palaszczuk will survive as premier.
Back to plastic Aldi bags… Where can I find dodgy Chinese billionaires? I’ve been skint for months and I don’t like it a bit, I could use bags full of cash. Yeesh, Joh Bjelke contented himself with envelopes full of cash, rank amateur! At least the ALP show some ambition! Much like they’ve shown ambition by backing all the wrong horses, including Tamil families with dodgy legal statuses!
On the other hand, the Coalition haven’t been handling the Gladys Liu fiasco all too well. Sending her, a first term MP, to face Andrew Bolt was probably not the wisest of ideas. I like Bolt and watch him frequently, but he doesn’t faff about and he doesn’t play favourites. He brutalises everyone and doesn’t let them get away with dodging questions. I will give her the benefit of a doubt. My name came up in a Confucius Institute listing at university, in part because of my close ties to Chinese students. I never joined, but it was added without my express consent. Still, ASIO did warn the Liberal leadership and she should have addressed the situation much earlier on. Oh, and not face Andrew Bolt unprepared.
