    About 15 to 20 years behind bars will help us keep George away from the kids.

    6 years seems about right. The appeal will be interesting

    Mega George is Mega again

    But by jailing a cardinal for these sordid crimes Australia has demonstrated once again that the rule of law runs in this country. Getting here hasn’t been easy but no other country stares down the Catholic church as we do now. This is a day to be proud of that record.

    Shame he didn’t mention Gillard, without whom it is probable this day would never have come, but still.

    You mean like,

    howard “We will decide who comes”
    abbott “the borders are open”
    dutton “African Gangs”
    morrison “refugees are pedophiles” (said the week before pells verdict was openly released)

    Maybe not “Entire”, but, if you are a conservative, and keeping quiet ……………….

    Gillard – “another boat, another policy failure”
    Rudd – “we’ll turn the boats around”
    Shorten – “we’re in lock step with the government”

    Also i think it is pathetic that you said “the entire conservative side of politics”

    You’re usually provocative but not pathetic

    Are any of those statements demonising people?

    I’m not denying Labor followed them down this wormhole, but they have never demonised like ALL of those above did

    howard “They are throwing them overboard”
    abbott “baddies vd baddies”

    equating the two is truly pathetic

    Speaking of racism…………………………

    “Our young children will flee and who are they being replaced with? They are being replaced by young people from typically Asia with PhDs,There’s a transformation happening in Sydney now where our kids are moving out and foreigners are moving in and taking their jobs.And I don’t want to sound xenophobic, it’s not a xenophobic thing, it’s an economic question.”

    – Mr Daley can be heard saying in a video.

    .”……. Luke Foley, was forced to apologise for using the term “white flight” during an interview with The Daily Telegraph in which he claimed “many Anglo families” had fled certain Sydney suburbs.I’m particularly concerned about suburbs around Fairfield because they’re carrying just a huge burden when it comes to the refugee intake from Syria and Iraq,”

    -Mr Foley told the newspaper in May last year.

    Yes, to assign the views of Anning (which essentially gave an excuse for mass murder) to the political orientation of 50% if the population is pathetic.

    Or possibly wilfully ignorant

    Or possibly wilfully ignorant

    What is willfully ignorant is your interpretation of what has been said.

    Yes wally, nsw Labor pollies are particularly thick headed.

    Do you disagree with his analysis though. I am not from Sydney, but I have read many stories of people being forced out, and rich people from China etal moving in.

    What makes me amazed is this is pushed by the conservative side, who are also the ones screaming ‘immigration’

    I have nothing wrong with immigration, but we must look after our own at the same time. It is obvious we are not

    That’s just bullshit

    “”……..but I have read many stories of people being forced out, and rich people from China etal moving in.”

    I dont agree. Most of the younger Chinese are preferring to live in apartments either inner city or within 10km city ring but still in apartments

    The older ones( for whom it is legal to buy older houses) with children buy based on where the best schools are.

    The main enclaves for the Asians are Haymarket/Ultimo (which is city centre) or Zetland and Wolli Creek a bit further out. The families go to Chatswood or Hurstville.

    Palm Beach is barely even in Sydney

    He really might have hurt his vote because Hurstville and the Ryde areas are very close at this stage 4 days out from the election.

    Then again Gladys cant sell her record. She should be miles ahead based on economic performance but with so much infrastructure being built and causing disruption people only see the short term pain not the gains

    I dont believe hers is a bad government. They just cant sell retail politics

  36. Tom R permalink
    March 19, 2019 11:09 am

    That’s just bullshit

    Perhaps you can name those who spoke out?

    causing disruption people only see the short term pain not the gains

    I don’t disagree that much of this sentiment may come from there, and that he is trying to play into this in the same way that the entire conservative side of politics that has pushed the same cart has

    Like I said, it’s third hand stories I am going on, and probably from self interested groups too.

  37. Tom R permalink
    March 19, 2019 11:20 am

    and, to be fair yomm, if your only complaint is the use of “entire”, then I’ll assume you’ll accept “the conservative side” as a suitable replacement?

    I mean, if their leadership group, including successive prime ministers, have blatantly pushed this racist rhetoric, it would have to mean that that side of politics accepts it as a political tool

  38. Tom of Melbourne permalink

    I think there are plenty of examples of entirely unsatisfactory and inflamatory comments – often by the right wing*

    As Wally points out, there are also examples of racially based political comments by some ALP figures.

    * I think there is a gulf between “conservative ” values and “right wing”
    If you haven’t bothered to inform yourself of the difference, it’s wilful ignorance

  39. Tom of Melbourne permalink

    Right wing/reactionary isn’t the same as a conservative who holds traditional values

  40. Tom R permalink
    March 19, 2019 12:17 pm

    I am using “conservative” in the current Australian vernacular

    ie, our “Liberal” (ROFL) party call themselves “conservative”

    They obviously are neither, yet that is what we call them. They in fact are closer to “Right wing/reactionary”

    If you want to argue over the semantics, go for it. As long as you continue to ignore the elephant, alls good I guess

  41. Tom of Melbourne permalink
    March 19, 2019 1:06 pm

    Fraser Anning gave an excuse to a mass murderer.

    If you blame all conservatives on the same basis, that’s not semantics, that’s just you bullshitting

Go on say something, you'll feel better...
