The theme song could adapt the lyrics of ACDC's Gaol Break as Gaol Bait.

Maybe he, Don Burke, Trump and Roy Moore could do a sleaze v sleaze version of the America's Cup.

So Truffles announces a new policy. "No Minister" could be a new hit series.

If he wasn't such an asshole from El Paso, you'd be tempted to feel a modicum of sympathy for Barney. Truffles gave him a public flogging and effectively banned him from acting in his role.

Given the grief the Country Party gave Truffles when he replaced the MM, I expect he got a certain satisfaction from Barney's humiliation.

So why is BJ copping flack when this sort of thing has been going on for years:


Bob Hawke should also get a dishonorable mention.

Trumble has to be joking, no?? Banning sex between consenting adults??

Maybe there's moral fortitude in "banning" rumpy pumpy between married Ministers and staff, but what about single Ministers and single staff.

FFS. Rolling Eyes

And regarding Mr Dog's post above - Labor have been very careful (for the reasons shown above) not to take aim at BJ over the affair, concentrating on the appointment of his mistress to various senior positions.

It'll be nice when we can get back to policy politics (like Labor's idiotic 50% renewable energy target) rather than the personal issues (citizenship, affairs) that have dogged this parliament for the past 18 months.

He's not saying you can't have sex, just that if you want to have sex the person has to leave your staff.

True Skullywags.

Have been enjoying the Tories difficulties about low wage growth. ScuMo has admitted that they wont be pressuring employers already enjoying monstro profits to share it about. Cretin Radish Shortpants is even worse. This craven lickspittle of capitalism is silent. Meanwhile work is increasingly casualised, unions are lap dogs and the Greens don't consider it an issue.

The other issue barely discussed this week is the Uluru statement and the bollocking .Truffles copped from Pearson. The latter manipulated the Alice Springs result and saw himself as having a lead role. Pearson might be a highly dubious bloke but he made some valid points. Personally I think his influence has not been positive within Hopevale or elsewhere. I much prefer Dodson, Sarra, Anderson etc.

This is getting fun - BJ now having a go at the PM for causing harm to his family with his "inept" comments.

The power of self-delusion is a marvelous thing.

While I tend to agree with Barnaby's general tone, I disagree with his rhetoric, which was far too combative.

Likewise, Trumble chose his words and actions poorly.

More grist for the smelly Pinkos. [sigh]

Barnaby's farked. He can't come back from this.

Turnbull is just a mudguard, as usual.

So Tony Abbott weighs in to the Turnbull-Joyce spat by giving some public advice that you shouldn't give public advice.

You have to laugh. Because of the Credlin situation the MM has to be careful. No wonder he does not like Truffles' new Ministerial Code of Conduct.

Looks like Tony Abbott has gone full rogue:

Tony Abbott’s colleagues respond to his spray

The Australian
12:05PM February 23, 2018

PRIMROSE RIORDAN; BEN PACKHAM

Tony Abbott has intensified his attack on Liberal colleagues critical of his stance on immigration, saying comments by Scott Morrison, Mathias Cormann and Steve Ciobo this week were “inept” and suggested the Turnbull government was “floundering”.

Mr Abbott launched a broadside at Turnbull cabinet ministers in The Australian today after the ministers smacked down a speech he gave at The Sydney Institute on Tuesday night this week calling for lower immigration.

The former Prime Minister told 2GB’s Ray Hadley it was clear the ministers had not read his speech “judging from the intemperate, over the top and to take a phrase from someone else, inept response they’ve made”.

Mr Abbott said they should have listened to him “with a degree of respect”.

“But for my efforts there wouldn’t be a government, but for my efforts in 2010 and 2013, Turnbull wouldn’t be prime minister and his ministers wouldn’t be in office. So I think they should listen with a degree of respect,” he told Hadley.

Mr Abbott suggested Mr Morrison, Mr Cormann and Mr Ciobo were “living in a Canberra bubble” and were not geniuses.

“We ought to be capable of having a sensible debate ...When some subjects are thought to be completely off limits for debate well governments founder and resentment grows. And the public are not mugs,” he said.

“Government ministers run away from [a discussion about lowering immigration] suggests they are living in a Canberra bubble. If they want to take pot shots at me, well I’m sorry but I will respond and I will respond and respond very forcefully because they are not such geniuses that they are the possessors of all political and economic wisdom.”




I feel a bit dirty saying that but Abbott is correct on immigration, it needs to slow down. He's still a qunt though.

Barnaby's resigning on Monday. No surprise.
