"Renae's old headmaster, Father Ted, has vouched for the boy's upright devotion, so I will intervene personally to save him from the bullet."

Isn't it sweetly ironic that the eeevil mohamedans have bagged an ABC, a Chan, no less, and his funloving dinkum Aussie crew, to extract some more ritual atonement for East Timor? Is Suharto still alive? With a bit more luck, they will be able to rope some godless Hindoos and Boodists into the plot.

Young Andrew, by now, will have heard how the generals in Rangoon have nothing but the kindest regards for his family in Sydney. And how they will be able to make it easier for him to succumb to a fatal illness, if his lips start to itch. Meanwhile, Andrew will be hoping for a brace of sleepy guards and conveniently placed keys. Either way, he won't have to face Colonel Bang-bang.

These blue-eyed boys are not terrorists like David Hicks, they are just high-spirited lads out for adventure.

What John Howard will say in Toyko is "We must all move on." The man is completely devoid of any principles and a moral coward.

JH: "It's necessary for all nations to be frank about past events."

That's open to many interpretations, a true Howardism, ie, not too frank, not all past malfeasance, and they don't even have to be your own doings. And, in the case of indigenous groups who disappeared without trace, since there is no forensic evidence, there can't be anything to own up to.

There's honesty, and, let's be frank about it, there's mealymouthed bullshit.

On to Tokyo.

An outstanding intelligence job on the Bali Nine handed over for a bit of hard-core justice. Are the Feds really sure none of them is related to a Coalition politician, or from a wealthy Catholic family? C'mon, at least one of them must be under George Pell's provenance. Will he plead to Lord Downer for all their souls?

If there is no blowback from this coup, doesn't it suggest pre-emption is already working well?

Gus, that gang was bypassed yonks ago. You do them too much credit, assuming they bother with original thought any more.

The agricultural by-product is shoveled directly into the organs of our righteous stinktanks, from the Rove-Cheney-Wolfowitz machine, to stain the op-ed pages of our dailies.

I wish someone could reconstruct the muck from a WW1 trench, and pour it under the door of the Sydney Institute. Ban Eric Bogle?

What we will not see - photos of John & Janette in front of the "reconstruction" of Anzac Cove.

I agree. But no, we haven't gone there yet.

As far as I know T.G., we're not breaking any laws. Yet.

Hamish, I see you've put a lot of thought into that, thanks.

Have you tried talking to your councillors to see if they want to help? The hypothetical person from step 11 may already exist and just needs the organisation behind them.

Thanks for the interest. I'll keep you in the loop.

Brisbane is also the largest municipal target in Australia.

Hi Hamish, I'm very interested to hear about this plan (and any others) to reinstill some democratic values into our aged bureaucracies. And what better place to do it than our current messed up situation which you or someone else has already mentioned on this site:

'Liberal' Lord Mayor Campbell "let's build some tunnels" Newman.

Labor City Council.

Highly corrupt state Labour government which now uses anti-corruption watchdog to avoid prosecution.

Old Rich White Men still running Federal Government in an increasingly undemocratic manner.

I have various talents which may not be of any use to your team but at the very least I am a registered voter who would love to hear more about and get involved with this plan.
