He got the name of his medal wrong (he did serve in the Military). That said, if you can't get the name of something that is, presumably, a source of great personal pride right, WTF are you doing representing 80,000 constituents in Parliament?

The one value of the military is keeping unemployable people off the street. Unfortunately our lapdog govts are into military adventurism.. They are led in the main by less than bright private school kids. Qmy would know about more recent intakes but those I once knew who went off to Duntroon were as thick as two short planks.

I was last at Duntroon thirty years ago as a civilian consultant and got kicked out of the officer's mess for groundless accusations of trying to poach officers for my company. Actually more than half the intake is from state schools.

I read Chris Kenny every weekend as a self control test. Here's the associate editor of the oz who was a political staffer regularly bitching about the 'political/media class.

They're all as bad as each other. The whole medal thing may or may not have been a mistake. You're right Fred, the only people who give a shite are the media and nosey parkers from the RSL.

I did laugh at your self control exercise. I admit I could not read Confected Kenny.

Periodically I will watch Sky News to test my heart rate and make sure that pea sized organ gets a kick along. At the moment they are flogging tickets to attend spiels by noted Murdochian favourite - Nigel Falange.

The entire Murdoch press will be agog..

Am contemplating attending.

I I wonder if prisons now have geriatric wings.

Incidentally has there ever been a half decent person who overcame the curse of being called Nigel?

He owns the papers so he can do what he wants. I just get the shites when he claims no editorial power. What's the point of owning a loss making business if you're not going to abuse it.

So basically you want the same thing to happen to Kenny as happens to that other Kenny in that other show?

Hehehe. Have forgotten the cartoonist, but after the Vic Libs defeat he drafted a "Who killed Kennett' image.

I suspect few parents call their newborn Ken these days.

Interesting Galaxy polls from Longman and Braddon (yeah, I know, Galaxy is about as reliable as Newspoll).

They show the LNP ahead 51-49 in Longman and at 50-50 in Braddon.

Hilariously the numbers are 53-47 to the Pinks in both seats if Albo was in charge.  Laughing

Is Shortarse a dead man walking if either seat goes to the Coalition??

Just proves that swinging voters vote on personalities, not policy.

Not sure about Braddon but those coalition numbers in Longman look soft. One Nation preferences are really hard to pick.

I see Nein has taken over Fairfax. I expect Tubby, the Heel and Nicholarse to be the lead political journos in the SMH and Age.

Keating on the takeover:

“If in the announced arrangement, Channel Nine has a majority of the stock, Channel Nine will run the editorial policy. The problem with this is that in terms of news management, Channel Nine, for over half a century, has never, other than displayed the opportunism and ethics of an alley cat.”

“There has been no commanding ethical or moral basis for the conduct of its news and information policy. Through various changes of ownership, no one has lanced the carbuncle at the centre of Nine’s approach to news management. And, as sure as night follows day, that pus will inevitably leak into Fairfax.

“For the country, this is a great pity.”
