Barnaby and Scott: Battle of the Boofheads

October 18, 2021

Things are not rosy in the garden of the Coalition.

Leader of the Nationals and Deputy PM Barnaby Joyce is insisting he won’t be held to ransom over Scott Morrison’s desire to take some sort of commitment to the Glasgow summit on climate change in less than two weeks.

Barnaby, whose prose is largely indecipherable at the best of times, said through an interpreter that they, “the Nationals,” reserved the right to reject any proposed emissions plan without being given proper time to consider it.

It’s a fair point. They’ve only been in government for 8 years and these things don’t happen overnight, ‘little lone’ after a four-hour boozy lunch meeting over the weekend.

In one of his more lucid moments, Barnaby yelped “we’re not chained to a script. We have our own party and our own party room for a distinct purpose – that at times we have variance of views, we have divergent views and we have different views.”

What those views are remains a mystery, given that many of their constituents in the agricultural industry are desperate for action on climate change.

“If we ever believed that we were being sort of threatened or pushed or stood over, I know what the outcome of that position is – the people (ie ‘me’) just say, ‘no’,” he told The Gutter Trash.

Deputy Nationals leader David Littleproud held a similar view, saying it was “a very complex issue” and claimed it’d be “reckless” for the party to sign up to something without considering the detail.

    Those Roy Morgan voting intention numbers just show how tribal Labor voters are. If a Coalition was in power doing exactly the same thing Andrews is doing the numbers would be the other way around.

    No doubt champion parachutist Kneely is having a little chuckle today. Members of the Obeid crime syndicate are going to prison while she, teflon turd that she is, will take a safe seat in Federal parliament.

    Before Kneely became Eddie’s girl, SMH journalist Kate McClymont had exposed Obeid and the festering ALP corruption. Yet, knowing this, Kneely plunged the knife into Rees and took the top job with Eddie’s backing.

    Her red carpet ride to the NSW Premiership and now to the safe ALP seat of Fowler are tributes to the rottenness of the ALP and to Kneely’s unique skill – kissing ALP power-brokers’ rings no matter how ragged and rancid they may be.

    Alec Baldwin was not only the star but also a producer of this low budget movie:

    Safety protocols standard in the industry, including gun inspections, were not strictly followed on the “Rust” set near Santa Fe, the sources said. They said at least one of the camera operators complained last weekend to production managers about gun safety on the set.

    Three crew members who were present at the Bonanza Creek Ranch set that day said they were particularly concerned about two accidental prop gun discharges on Saturday.

    Baldwin’s stunt-double accidentally fired two rounds Saturday after being told that the gun was “cold” — lingo for a weapon that doesn’t have any ammunition, including blanks, one of crew members who witnessed the episode told the Los Angeles Times.

    “There should have been an investigation into what happened,” said the crew member. “There were no safety meetings. There was no assurance that it wouldn’t happen again. All they wanted to do was rush, rush, rush.”

    A colleague was so alarmed by the prop gun misfires he sent a text message to the unit production manager. “We’ve now had 3 accidental discharges. This is super unsafe.”

    Hopefully the woke mongrel goes down for manslaughter!

    Why it is reasonable to hold Dan to account
    1. The state government is facing 58 charges over the hotel quarantine debacle. No other state is
    2. No other state set a world record for lockdown. Not even half
    3. Dan gave the most sanctimonious and self serving speeches, all the big talk has come back to him
    4. Dan said he would take full responsibility. So people are entitled to hold him to account
    5. Victoria had the highest fines in the country, and 3 times as many were issued as NSW.
    6. Dan’s evidence at the inquiry – “I don’t remember”

    ToM, it is logical when you think about it – combine the Stairman’s arrogance with his corrupt ineptitude and you end up with a crooked shoddy administration which totally fucks up hotel quarantine and kills hundreds. And, like TB, Dan is constitutionally unable to admit of any error. The arrogant mongrel just wants to berate other states which have outperformed Victoria, i.e. all of them. ‘Zero cases’ is right – if you mean zero cases of decent leadership in Victoria.

    Even more pathetic are the loyal ALP knuckle-draggers trying desperately to rescue Dan’s rancid reputation by dribbling shit all over the comments section.

I’m certainly not going to make excuses for the coalition the way you pathetically run interference on behalf of Stairman Dan. It does your credibility no good to try to blame the Feds for Mongrel Coate’s failure to get to the truth of the matter.

    Mongrel Coate did not even cross-examine the head of Unified Security about the events of the day the Company was appointed and the contacts he had in relation to the appointment of Unified to do hotel quarantine work. She did not find out who put their name forward even though they weren’t on the relevant preferred services panel. The stupid mongrel did not find out what prompted Unified’s CEO to send out an urgent email to all staff to immediately do an online Covid course before Unified was allegedly first contacted by Vic bureaucrats.

    All of which information she could have easily obtained. Knowing what went on in the National Cabinet might be interesting but that not knowing those details is not the reason Victorians are still in the dark. For that we need answers to questions Coate could have asked but chose not to.

    The decision that made itself and killed 800 Victorians (NTTIAWWT). Mongrel Coate was supposed to get to the bottom of the hotel quarantine disaster but instead took great pains to avoid telling us who made that fatal decision – much to the Stairman’s delight. Most likely the decision to appoint unqualified cowboys was business as usual in the ALP – using public money to look after Labor mates, repay shady favours and stack branches.

    We should know the details of how the contract was awarded to Unified and who made the decision. But this is the fascist dictatorship of Victoria, Dictator Dan doesn’t wan’t you to know and Mongrel Coate, being a connoisseur of the Stairman’s fecal treacle, isn’t going to tell you. In fact she didn’t even bother to find out.
