Rupert Murdoch has taken to Twitter to canvass opinion about dropping 'Page 3' topless shots from his best-selling British tabloid.
On the same day (9 September 2014) as a Newspoll result shows that Labor still leads the libs (CONservatives) 52 to 48, (even mentioned by Andrew Bolt who is surprised that labor is not more ahead than this) there is poster advertising for the Australian using another Newspoll result that states: "majority back role in Iraq"... Gus was there on the lookout to turn this garbage on its head, using mischief...
Of course in any polls — especially one like this one on Iraq — one needs to know what was (were) the question(s) and how is a "role" defined. Where does "role" sits in between sending a bunch of flowers and an all out war with foot soldiers, yet again?.
I know someone who is a Quantum Physicist. He assured me with 99.9998 per cent of probability that since the discovery of the Higss boson, the end of the world is nigh — especially for the Super Symmetry and String theories... But who knows... The big question is why is the universe sooooo big when we're sooooo small?...
Annabel gives us a piss-weak condemnation of Tony (in italics)... Here is a short version (with Gus annotations in brackets):
And in the past year, we have established many things about Tony Abbott, Prime Minister. Some of them are surprising. Some are not. First, the unsurprising things:
Stop and seize
Aggressive police take hundreds of millions of dollars from motorists not charged with crimes
The Abbott Government is today marking one year since winning office, with the Prime Minister declaring the Coalition is delivering on its commitments.
The ISIS gang makes great enemies. They dress in black, wear Halloween masks, wave flags, act viciously, and cut off the heads of journalists.
Antony Ting describes it as "like finding treasure". It was 18 months ago when the powerful US congressional committee blew the lid on Apple's aggressive corporate tax structure, which allowed it to funnel $US44 billion dollars out of the country through a network of tax haven subsidiaries.
There has been many spats between Tim Flannery and Andrew Bolt... One problem is that Bolt is a professional spruiker with a clever questioning tongue, while Tim is a scientist trying to be over-popularly alarmist on what he knows is a major problem for years to come.
The man occupying the prime minister's chair today is a very different political character to the one who first sat in it a year ago.
David Leyonhjelm got lucky... His party of "democratic Liberals" (Laissez-faire all the con artistry of the ultra-rightwing nuts) was first of the list on the one-point-five metre long senate paper in the New South Wales ballot for the Federal elections... Many people tick-a-box and the first one will do.
In fact David Leyonhjelm is in favour of guns for all to solve crime in the streets and of GM vegies to solve the crimes from bugs and weeds on the farms.
