Master Of Puppets

Posted: January 8, 2013 in Politics, Strange And Silly Tales

It was wiping tears from my eyes that I read the Peta Credlin IVF story in the Sunday paper.

Don’t be so cynical, it truly moved me. I don’t think I’ve laughed so much since the last season of The IT Crowd.

I mean seriously, I was in stitches with the tears starting to form puddles at my feet. Are we supposed to treat this stuff seriously?

The woman whose job it is to ensure the unelectable Tony Abbott is elected at all costs has told Marie Claire and News Ltd the story of Tony Abbott’s apparent support during her IVF treatment.

It is supposedly true that Abbott has been doing all he can to help Credlin fall pregnant, going the extra mile so to speak. Hmmm, very supportive indeed.

Bannanarama called, they want their dress back

Bannanarama called, they want their dress back

It would seem however that there are those who are sceptical of this story for some reason. There are those who question the integrity of the woman who has time and time again shown her loyalty to her men.

Pete Credlin proudly supported her man Brendan Nelson as leader until he was assassinated by Malcolm Turnbull. Credlin then stood behind her new man Malcolm Turnbull as leader until he was stabbed in the back by Tony Abbott. Now Credlin proudly stands behind her man of the minute Abbott. What a record of loyalty…

Credlins desperate attempt to show the mythical man who respects women inside the shell of a misogynist only highlights what we already know about Tony Abbott. Abbott is a man who seemingly thinks women are puppets for him to play with, and when that doesn’t work he has been known to respond with violence, sexism, and slander.

This is the man who leads the party in which a prominent member when referring to Julia Gillards lack of child bearing history referred to her as “deliberately barren”. Abbott himself was eventually forced to apologise (albeit Alan Jones style) after a comment he made on a morning show while discussing the baby bonus. He referred to the governments “inexperience on these matters”. How subtle…

After having on air shots at Julia on television, and repeated references to her lack of children, we are now supposed to believe that Mr Misogynist 2012 Tony Abbott is sensitive about a woman longing to have children. It must be true as the woman whose job it is to see him elected says so? I believe Leyton Hewitt said it best when he said “C’m dafuck On” or something like that.

Credlin must be chuffed to be recruited as the last ditch effort to try and portray something other than a “small man syndrome” inside the unelectable Abbott. Previous attempts by Abbott’s own wife and daughters have failed catastrophically, along with desperate attempts with the infamous “Tony I know” line that were made by the more feminine members of the front bench such as Julie Bishop and Christopher Pyne. This debacle turned into a backfiring farce on Twitter in the end as the public saw it for the act of desperation it was.

Some have suggested that this farcical attempt to seem human, is yet another example of Abbott believing that women have nothing between their ears but the sound of crickets on a still night, and will believe anything they are spoon fed. The theory is that Abbott, in a desperate bid to seem less abhorrent to females has convinced his chief of staff to sacrifice her credibility so he can hopefully gain a couple of points in the polls.

Whilst I can see the merit in this theory, I’m not entirely convinced. After all, there is another option…

As we enter the final leg of the race to the lodge before an election is called, it could just be that Abbott is concerned that he will be dumped as leader. All this Credlin fluff and spin could well be aimed at his own caucus. There is a deafening roar of calls to see Turnbull once again lead the party, so maybe this is a bizarre attempt to gain support within his own dysfunctional party. After all if his polling goes up, maybe his party won’t crucify him, and Credlin won’t have to switch loyalties yet again.

Malcolm Turnbull, has shown himself to be a man of principles and not just someone seeking power. He achieved this by leaving the Labor Party when they wouldn’t give him a safe seat and joining the Liberal Party, so strong are his principals. Now Malcolm seems to be biding his time awaiting Abbotts inevitable fall. The only political turncoat I can recall to gain the leadership of a major party seems destined to lead the party once more as there is nobody else in the Liberal caucus that could even be remotely considered for the top job.

Whatever the reason for this travesty, reading the fable reminded me of something I was told about a year ago.

Although I can’t recall the persons name, someone who told me they were a member of Julia Gillards staff told me about an interesting occurence.

Apparently during the tour of a Melbourne hospital whose services had been decimated by Ted Baillieu’s cutbacks, and then let down further by a total lack of support from the Victorian HSU under the factional rule of Kathy Jackson, the PM met someone who moved her profoundly.

This patient was a young lady in desperate need of facial reconstruction after she had been struck in the face by a pig that was coming in to land after flying to Melbourne from Canberra. This pig had left the Coalitions caucus room, one of the few places in Australia where pigs can fly, after a meeting where Tony Abbott had thrown his support behind a push to allow women to have a choice by backing calls to allow RU486 to be sold in Australia via a prescription. Other items on the agenda at the meeting were Abbotts calls to publicly condemn the Catholic Church for harbouring paedophiles and covering up their crimes, a push to “stop The Slogans”, and a collection of donations from members so that Joe Hockey could receive some Math tutoring from a local high school student at eleventeen dollars an hour.

Apparently during this meeting in particular, there were an extraordinarily large number of pigs flying out of the meeting in a state that could be best described as bewildered. It was one of these pigs that came crashing down on the poor unsuspecting lady now lying in a Melbourne hospital bed.

So moved by the plight of this young girl, and being such a fan of John Woo movies, Julia offered her support by offering to give her face as a transplant for the girl, just as she had seen in the film Face Off with Scientology man John Travolta.

It was only after the grateful young lady patient explained that this could in effect make Julia two-faced that the transplant didn’t occur. Apparently the young lady stated that being two-faced would not suit Julia’s style and she did not want to be a part of making Julia this way as there was more than enough of that two-faced behaviour to go around already on the opposition front bench.

In hindsight, I’m not sure whether the story re Gillard is true, or even if the person really was one of Gillards staff even.  It sounds a wee bit dicey with flying pigs and Abbott having a conscience and all that…

Anyway true or not, I thought it held more water than the utter horse shit coming out of Peta Credlins mouth for the right-wing propaganda machine.

Anyway Tony and Peta, I don’t know about the women you hang out with, but don’t judge the intelligence of Australian women by the women you have in your caucus.

Most women aren’t so gullible or stupid, and above all they are not puppets.

    I too laughed so hard reading your story that my feet are wet and i have to go and dry them. But before i do, i want to thank you for the marvellous way you put things in perspective, including the story of the flying pigs. Indeed women are not that stupid to fall for Pete Credlin’s “loyalty” story about our not-at-all-dearly-beloved Tone. So thank you and please continue your writing and your investigations. I very much appreciate and enjoy your thoughts.

    the hot weather becomes you Peter … the best line of 2013 (and i reckon it will still be in 348 or so days) …

    that cracks me up – by the way, you owe me a new laptop as i laughed my coffee into the keyboard and it’s now starting to smoke and groan (that’s twice today now!!).

    very entertaining.
    thank you.

    My ribs now hurt…very funny…

    • Jennie Landow says:

      You should be ashamed of yourself. You and others in the Labor party should keep your mouths shut otherwise you lot will be the first ones in court for offending someone if the new laws ever come in. Instead of putting people down why don’t you and your useless leader get out and actually help someone!

  4. aj says:

    Now come on, you know its not cool to laugh at the afflicted.

    I didn’t so much laugh at the article as roll my eyes. I presume we’ll be treated to an onslaught of #thetonyIknow in the next few months. Considering Abbott’s record on IVF and reproductive issues, I’d say that the story doesn’t so much suggest he is woman-friendly as suggest it is one rule for his (dwindling group of) friends, another for everyone else. Still, there were a lot of twitter comments etc that were sexist towards Peta Credlin and that adds nothing to the debate. Ridiculing the lack of logic and whole sycophantic piece on factual grounds is so much better.

    I’d also say that picking on what she wears rather than says (in your caption) reduces credibility a bit too though.

    • wixxy says:

      I totally agreee AJ, sexixt rants are not to be tolerated no matter who they are targeting.

      If she has issues with IVF, then I feel sorry for her, splashing her supposed trauma all over newspapers and magazines is not how most would deal with the issue, but different strokes for different folks….

      You may be right about the dress, however the dress in question was specifically mentioned in the News Ltd article as being making Peta “striking”, hence my comment on it. I was only commenting on a dress that had been featured in the article and giving a different view on it… I wouldn’t have gone there otherwise.

  5. clarittee says:

    It all fits. All these ladies “volunteering” to testify for Tonys credentials, profit by getting a promotion in Tonys the despot’s future dictatorship. It’s “do this for me if you know what’s good for your future”.
    Margie gets more dough to pay the 770k house loan too. That’s a fair percentage of the Tones annual income. Bishop J gets the job she wants. She is very loyal too (any leader) Life wasn’t meant to be easy in the sell everything but your …. world of the LNP

  6. Maureen Butterworth says:

    I was gobsmacked to read the story by Susie O’Brien in today’s Herald Sun. For the first time in my memory, a Murdoch journalist has actually come out reminding us of Abbott’s past, in response to Credlin’s pathetic attempt to humanise the moron. Was it the Editor’s day off? Only last week O’Brien took a fair swipe at Jenny Macklin and informed us that single mothers do have a job “looking after the children”. Well, Susie, I’m 60 and have been working non stop since I was 17. I am educated enough to come to have come to the conclusion that if I gave up working my children wouldn’t have the opportunities that this great country can offer then. A good work ethic never killed anybody and I think it’s vital that we pass this onto our kids instead of pretending that we are unemployable. I sort out part time work eg. in the banks, until my kids were old enough for me to seek full time work. My daughter writes employment policy for her company. She has been in the industry long enough for me to have gleaned that there is plenty of support from job seeker “providers” and plenty of educational opportunities available for those on the Newstart allowance. These programs don’t come under the auspices of the Single Parent allowance. Single mothers should be embracing the opportunities to become upskilled enabling them to make a valued contribution to their child’s future. I’m sure that there will be immeasurable support for them to do so, if they take up the challenge.
    Sorry, to have digressed from your original story…but, it has been interesting that Abbott hasn’t entered into the debate or come out swinging in defence of single mothers woes. More than likely because it’s about women and doesn’t affect his Big Business mates.

    • Catching up says:

      Spot on. Another 70 year old that managed to work. Found it easier as a single parent than married to a no hoper.

      Does not fit here, but I am sure we will get opportunities to voice our strongly held opinions down the track.

      Support to get qualifications and assistance to work, is much better that being trapped on a pension any day.

    • Irene Bolger says:

      I agree Maureen. I returned to work when my son was 2 weeks old and worked full time as a single parent. It was a much better life for my son and me as I could keep my career going and he did not suffer and is now in Barcelona with his own production company and 2 daughters.

  7. Great read as always Wixxy…Your such a cynic 🙂 Cant wait till Wednesday..not. Should be an explosive leopard printed neo feminist power piece. 🙂

  8. deknarf says:

    “Credlin’s’ too close to ‘incredulous’ to be remotely ‘credible’!

  9. jennhain says:

    What a Muppet!!

  10. Laurie Kidd says:

    Credlin is certainly loyal. So too is Abbott’s deputy leader, Julie Bishop who has been loyal to the same 3 leaders, even to 2 simultaneously.

  11. Helen says:

    OMG any credibility that existed in relation to my sanity is gone having pissed myself in the office over this for the last 15 mins. Made my day!
    And sorry aj but the bannanarama line was too funny for words….

  12. Catching up says:

    I read somewhere last night, that Peta was going to put off her attempt to have a baby until after the elections. It appears the elections are more important.

    Now this really makes sense. Peta is I believe a 41 year old woman, who according to the stories, had five failed attempts.

    Not much time left. I would say.

    Now, are we to assume the lady is the only one capable of doing her job. No one else can take Mr. Abbott to victory.

  13. Catching up says:

    Notice all the woman coming forward seem to have a similar role. All to serve Tony.

  14. Pru Brewer says:

    Principles – not principals!

  15. Heather says:

    Agree with your comment Maureen

  16. Marilyn says:

    No Maureen there is nothing wrong with a strong work ethic but that is not the be all and end of life.

    My mother had a strong work ethic and left 4 kids to fend for themselves from the age of 6 for my brother ranging to 10 for my older sister – we went without lunches at school in the process and were not allowed to go home to get any and even if we did there would not be any. She also had a strong ethic of pill popping uppers and downers to deal with the day – driving with 4 little kids in the car while she was pilled off her brain was such a good lark.

    God knows how I got to live to be 60 in between here and our child beating rapist father.

    I had a strong work ethic and went back to work when my first child was less than 2 years old, she was struck down with deadly asthma by the time she was 3.5 years old and I had to stay home with her until she was 12 because she was so severe she nearly died when the weather changed from hot to cold.

    In South Australia that is a remarkable number of times per annum.

    This bloody work ethic crap drives me insane, what is the point if everyone around you suffers for it.

    As for Credlin, she is married to that egregious thug Brian Loughnane and I have no sympathy for her at all. She is happy to keep Abbott ranting about refugee, aboriginal and the kids of single parents being punished.

    So Maureen don’t be so bloody self righteous about work, it’s not all there is. What if I had gone back to work and the teachers didn’t know how to deal with asthma attacks and I was not home to help? It happened a number of times and put her back into hospital.

    AS for dear of Chrissy Pyne coming out for Credlin and IVF, there is a well known around town other reason for the IVF in his case.

    • Irene Bolger says:

      So what was your husband doing during all of this, working? Why wasn’t he sharing the load? I worked from the time my son was 2 weeks old because I wanted to so it can go both ways. Many women like to work just as much as men do and should be able to if they want without criticism as well.

      • Marilyn says:

        Did you bother to read that I was a single mother, I did not have a husband, he disappeared from view before I bothered to marry the creep.

  17. Marilyn says:

    And Peter you stay safe today, NSW and Victoria look like hell on earth.

  18. Sandra Searle (@SandraSearle) says:

    Amen to your last paragraph Peter. Needed a good laugh tonight. Watching the fire scene in NSW and my homestate Vic plus Tassie really does (as Marilyn has said) looks like hell on earth.
    Hope that everyone can get a little respite from the heat. Keep safe everyone.

  19. Mark says:

    Did you see the article in SMH by Louise Adler – Abbotts’ publisher, supporting Peta Credli and TA and quoting the TA’s duaghter as saying “dad is so gay, such a looser so churchy” and Lousie Adler supports this as mocking her fatehr to keep him grounded and goes on the ask who keeps Julia grounded. What a disgrace from a female author. http://www.smh.com.au/opinion/politics/chasing-facts-or-foibles-20130107-2ccqs.html

    • aj says:

      kinda disturbing that TA’s daughter uses “gay” as an insult. Hope she’s right about him being a loser though – in the polls that is.

  20. puffytmd says:

    I needed that laugh.

  21. clarittee says:

    My father used to say “out of the mouth of babes” (inferring wisdom may come forth) . I thing Tone’s daughter summed it up well. ( in the above link) Abbott IS going to look a right idiot in time. I hope it is “in time’ for the next election, but the longer the element of time the sillier he will look.
    He set his task as having the Gillard government ousted quickly. Clearly THAT hasn’t happened. In case anyone didn’t notice. He FAILED to achieve that. the most effective LOTO ever . Sure!!.

  22. Kevin says:

    Thanks for the laughs Wixxy, I came close to wetting myself a few times. (65 year old bladder)

    I look forward to seeing Ankles Abbott lose yet another election later this year. Oh, why ankles, you ask? Because he is 3 feet lower than an unshelled muscle.

    • wixxy says:

      LOL ankles… that is funny, thanks Kevin 🙂

    • mark says:

      Nice one Kev, a joke straight out of the Peter Slipper ‘text’-book, the insulting term being an unshelled ‘mussel’, if you could spell. I guess the anti-mysoginists will be onto you for this one unless they are all hypocrites.

  23. I can’t help but wonder why the LNP need to get Credlin to tell us what a top bloke Tony really is – can’t he tell us himself?

  24. Catching up says:

    Michael, because Abbott is incapable of doing so.

  25. oldfart says:

    She doesnt look a happy chappy in the pics, maybe chrissy could coach her. Seriously, I don’t think it would be advisable to cross that lady. she looks a nasty piece of work.

  26. Kim says:

    What a nasty piece of work you are. You must be a member of the ALP.

    • wixxy says:

      Proudly so

      We have a woman as our leader, not a misogynist pig with a trail of women desperately trying to tell us he is not as bad as we think.

      Wonder how long till they drag his mother out???

  27. susann says:

    What a perfectly disgusting article Peter Wicks! and you running for Labor in the upcoming elections! What a horrid person to have as an MP..I hope you get thrashed as you did last time! Articles such as this…shared on facebook ..do Labor no favours.

    • wixxy says:

      Glad you liked it 🙂 using your logic it would have been ok if it wasn’t shared on Facebook
      The one who has done themselves no favors in this is Abbott, what a big man letting a woman take a credibility knock for him…

      • susann says:

        Believe me PETER WICKS…the comments on the facebook share were NOT in your favour..nor Labor’s. I’ve shared this link on several women’s forums and the comments there are not in your favour either. To poke fun at another women for the reasons you have is NOT funny. It’s because of people like you that politics in Australia is so toxic.

      • wixxy says:

        Thanks for sharing my post
        I have not criticised anyone on their ability to have a baby.
        I do however remember a comment re Julia Gillard being “Barren” but I guess it’s ok when coming from the Liberals?

  28. Rosie says:

    You won’t be getting my vote you ALP pig!

  29. Dallas Beaufort says:

    The lefts Green Labor sycophants now fail to realise their own dusty insignificance within surburbia.

    • Hilde Rombout says:

      I reckon that those who become abusive rather than discuss what you have written are just afraid that you may be right. I am glad that you take it so well, Peter. Just keep on informing us and hopefully even the abusers will see sense in what you are telling us. But then, may be they won’t, and all the more pity for them!

      • wixxy says:

        Cheers Hilde… The abuse is water off a ducks back…. I take it as a compliment if they think I am making a difference and feel the need to set up false email accounts etc just to have a shot…

      • susann says:

        No Hilde, the reason for the so called abuse is because this man hopes to represent Labor in his electorate..he failed miserably and I’m not surprised. For most women that cannot fall pregnant IVF is a very difficult process..for some idiot male to sneer and make fun of this is just not funny.

        Is this really the type of person Labor wants?

      • wixxy says:

        There are a few people tonight who seem to assume that I am standing in the next election, I’d be interested to know where this comes from?

        I’m not surprised I didn’t win when when I stood in the state election either, it is the safest Lib seat in the state after all

        I have not criticised anybody for their childbearing ability or status, as much as you may like to put words in my mouth.

        I criticise Credlin on her record of poor loyalty which leads to questions of integrity and honesty

        I question her honesty, and if this is a hugely personal issue, I’d suggest not telling national press

        This is a woman that has had to be expelled from parliament for breaking the rules.

        I think her story holds about as much water as a fish net stocking and I’m entitled to have an opinion, the same as you are entitled to fall for all the spin and drivel desperately spewing from the bileducts of those on the right

  30. steve says:

    i gave up reading your disgusting article 1/2 way through your highly insulting and derogatory comments about a lady who is having trouble falling pregnant, and our potentially next PM of this country!! not one of you weak, gutless, lowlife, left wing scum would have the guts to say what yous do behind a keyboard to TA’s face! and even if one of you keyboard warriors did, i’d hope he used his pugilistic skills right on your button! your pathetic incompetent federal labor/green/labor loving indos policies have failed dramatically and miserabley, they have no policies, just pipe dreams which would not come into affect years after this years election, and are totally unfunded! they are so inept, the only thing going for them are personal insults and unfounded smears and down right LIES. this fed. gov. has brought this parliament house down to the gutter with their lies,spin, personal attacks and their gutter tactics!

    • wixxy says:

      Let me get this right Steve…. our

      “labor/green/labor loving indos policies have failed dramatically and miserabley, they have no policies, just pipe dreams”

      You accuse us of having no policies and indo policies in the same fucking sentence????

      Our unfounded smears?? Like Slipper & Ashby? Utegate? Howard giving money to Saddam? Slush fund to get Hanson? You guys should know the gutter, it is where you guys live.

      You are wrong also, I say this to the face of any Liberal member I come accross, and you know what happens? Nothing at all, they have no answers, and I’m sure as shit not scared to face a man who throws punches at a woman.

      I’m out there Steve, not hiding behind a keyboard like most of your guys with false names on troll accounts.In my area I am reasonably well known and attend many event with the local Liberals even, oddly enough none of them have taken a swing yet. Not even at my “button”???

      My articles consist of facts in which to back up an opinion, your comment consists of insults and personal attacks, all the things you claim to be against.

      Now, I don’t want to accuse you of being a hypocrite, so I will just assume you have the IQ of an inbred sewer rat and don’t even understand your own sad excuses for principles.

      Have a good night, and work yourself up to reading a full article once in a while, you may learn something…. then again, probably not…

    • Marilyn says:

      Gee, why are all the weirdos out to play in Peta’s sand box today? Really, who cares if this ghastly woman has any kids, why is that public business.

      There are plenty of kids in the world to adopt if she wants some.

      The problem is using it as a political exercise and having the ghastly Chrissy Pyne chime in.

    • Kevin says:

      So, Steve, I assume you state “not one of you weak, gutless, lowlife, left wing scum would have the guts to say what yous do behind a keyboard to TA’s face!” because you know for a fact that your beloved “Joe 90” is an out and out thug, like in his uni days when he punched the wall either side of a 5’1 woman he lost an election to.
      Personally I would enjoy the opportunity to say similar things to his face, even though, being a 65 year old disabled person, I would receive a similar response as did Bernie Banton not so very long ago.

      More power to you for speaking the truth, Wixxy.

  31. salannie says:

    Oh my, not quite sure whether a male or female wrote this, aaaaaaah, shall we say, questionable article, but if it was male, does your penis now feel larger? And if it was female, do your boobs now feel enormous? That’s obviously what you want, not just a boost to your ego and your very small self esteem, but a boost to your rather obvious lack of sizeable anatomy. So common, so low, so UN-funny, so gillard (that is the new term for common as muck, am sure you know that). Did you by the way, read the article about timmie the lounge lizard and how he lives for just blow drying HER hair) and lounging around listening to question time. Says a lot about about her taste in men doesn’t it? Oh and just wanted to mention that if you are going to write articles, please learn English grammar and spelling. Small example “Malcolm Turnbull, has shown himself to be a man of principals” – it’s ‘principles’ unless you think Malcolm is a man of headmasters/mistresses!

    • wixxy says:

      Real name, real profile picture, really male, and really comfortable with my anatomy thanks…

      I don’t do the whole “hide behind a fake profile” thing, I’ll leave that to your lot…

      Thanks for your attempt to lower the debate to your level, but you Young Liberals from the Sophie Mirabella School Of Diplomacy need to think of new tactics other than dick and tit theatrics that highlight more about you than your target.

      I hope you settle on a good therapist or plastic surgeon

      • salannie says:

        Oh wixxy thanks so much for grouping me into the YOUNG Libs. I am in fact well over 60, so you’ve just confirmed that I am still young at heart and young of mind, as well as a good judge of human character, of which you have seem to have none.

      • wixxy says:

        Sorry about the young Libs jibe, I was basing it on your apparent IQ and juvenile fascination for dicks & tits

  32. mick says:

    Well said Pete!!!!

  33. Hilde Rombout says:

    Susann,

    i did not read Peter saying anything against women using IVF because they can not conceive naturally. Rather i read that he questioned the motives of Peta Credlin in using her troubles to show us how woman friendly Tony Abbott is. That seems to me very manipulative and not very believable. Why does Tony Abbott hide behind several women’s apron? Isn’t he man enough to fend for himself? Actually these women are showing that Tony Abbott is a weakling and a coward. He is “ab”using the women in his power for his own purpose. Would you not rile against that? How would you like it if your husband or your boss used you to gain power for himself? Personally, i would not.

    Nor do i think it appropriate to use someone’s medical problem to gain sympathy publicly with the purpose of encouraging people to elect Tony Abbott or whoever. For you to abuse Peter Wicks because he highlights what Peta Credlin did is uncalled for. And you can not speak for all women. You certainly do not speak for me.

  34. oldfart says:

    How cool is this, wixxy and his blog have hit the big time. It’s come to the attention of the LNP and their barnacles and trolls. Wow they must be feeling threatend by peter and his writings Go Peter, I love watching all these spineless bullies being abusive. It’s a nice reminder that no matter what warm and fuzzy message Brer Rabbott is trying to put out there, we are witnessing the real face of the far right wing liberal party of today. I wonder when he is going to write his version of Mein Kampf? Maybe battle lines was just the appetizer

    • wixxy says:

      There have been plenty of other comments that have gone straight to spam also…..

      I certainly was a target last night, funny that most of them appaered to be false accounts, and also appeared to be women or at least men pretending to outraged women. It kind of helps prove my point….

  35. clarittee says:

    I am constantly amazed at the depths of nastiness,crude insults and character assassination (rather than debate) the trolls of the right wing nuts stoop to. You have become a big time troll magnet wixxy. Must have hit a raw nerve. It’s ALL orchestrated, so they are getting desperate..What sort of country would we get with them in?. Cheers

  36. clarittee says:

    You must have tightened up your system my last post got dumped.

    • wixxy says:

      Thanks, I certainly didn’t mean to if I did 😦

      I don’t dump posts unless they are insulting or nasty to others, but due to the abusive stuff coming from the right wingers, I now have to approve every comment.
      This means there is often a delay in the comments going up, depending on what I’m doing. So I’m sorry for that but I had to as some of the abuse was directed at other commenters not just myself.

      If I missed one of your comments I’m sorry, it must have been a mistake on my part…

    I don’t think it is your fault, Peter. It required a password I didn’t find quick enough after getting it wrong the first time.

    To all of you here and mostly women that think Peter is insensitive, you are wrong. But I guess you all must be abbott supporters. I myself thought it was a disgusting performance of the woman to broadcast she was on IVF. I thought that was a very PRIVATE matter. So I came to the conclusion that she did it for her boss, just as Peter has written. It just shows what a creep he really is and her a very stupid woman. I liked the line the women on the front bench, Jilie Bishop and Christopher Pyne!!!!!!
    Thanks Peter for all the information you have given us and still doing.

    Would love to say what I thought, to his face.

    My problem, is as a fit seventy one year old, I do not believe I could keep up with him, as he takes off anytime criticism is raised.

    As a domestic violence surviver, I believe I can easily mangage his bullying.

  41. Haha, I was wondering why this post had an extra 40 or so comments in a day. They sent out their flying monkeys, unfortunately, like Mr Burns’ ones they just dropped straight to the ground.

    Keep up the great work, Peter.

    The thing that intriguers me is, what is the mettle of politicians these days? Why do they have advisors in the chamber? Do they need to be spoon fed and have their collective chins wiped all the time? I think i liked politics without all the “advisors” hanging around, it was a damm sight more civil and things actually got done.

    Maybe we could do away with politicians and election, just hire the advisors. After all, it could be argued that they actually have more influence over what transpires than their “masters”
