    This created an awful, awful image in my head.

    Wasn't the debate on Afghanistan woeful. This issue just proves why bipartisanship is rotten - you don't really have to justify your decision.

    Give me the adversarial system, be it in the courtroom or in politics, anyday. It might be brutal and ugly, but at least there is maximum scrutiny and accountability.

    Oh yeah, on Afghanistan...

    did I hear that Abbott said that while over there he wanted to go out in combat and embed himself with the troops in a battle??

    I do love Tone, but geez....that's bonkers.

    John Howard doing a live question and answer blog at the Australian web site now.

    None of my questions or comments have been published

    Edit: looks like the Oz has blackballed me from commenting. I didn't even swear, this is ****ing bull****.

    Open media my arse.

    Edit: "didn't politicise refugees" my arse Howard. **** this, lunch time. Too depressing for words. ****ing dessicated coconut.

    Edit: Nick W - "I thought Bush was smart". Well you're a **** Nick, arent you? I mean honestly, this is beyond dire. "History will judge him more kindly than the commentariat is now". AAAARRRRRRGGGGHHHHHHH - it's like a Prom Night for the Ne'er Do Wells. This is horrible, just horrible. Why don't they use the internet filter for this filth?

    Edit: what do you think of the stolen generation? This will be good..

    "i guess my view was that the bringing them home report was a flawed report. among other things it did not take evidence from people who had been involved in administering the practices complained of. the truth is that some indigenous children derived great benefit from the policy, whereas others did not. this was a point made very strongly by noel pearson in the australian newspaper on the eve of mr rudd's apology and his words are quoted in my book".**

    Edit: why do you look like an older, unfunny Larry David? Not published either. FMD.
    **Out now, all good book stores.

    Personally, that's a fairly gross misrepresentation of Pearson's views. Don't see the above anywhere here unless you count being saved from abuse by white or non-white people in your life 'great benefit';

    The truth is the removal of Aboriginal children and the breaking up of Aboriginal families is a history of complexity and great variety. People were stolen, people were rescued; people were brought in chains, people were brought by their parents; mixed-blood children were in danger from their tribal stepfathers, while others were loved and treated as their own; people were in danger from whites, and people were protected by whites. The motivations and actions of those whites involved in this history -- governments and missions -- ranged from cruel to caring, malign to loving, well-intentioned to evil.
    Noel's core position? It's a complex issue. Howard, once again, misses the point, tbh.

    Benchy's lack of defending Hockey over the last week disappointing. Could have fired up this thread.

    I can confirm that the Bradman of PM's will address the National Press Club on Wednesday.

    And no, it's not Rudd. He's more like the Wayne Phillips of PM's.

    Gillard's blouse hanging out below her jacket in QTime- out the back.

    Draws attention to her massive arse. It is a whopper of a bum.

    She's like a big waddling duck.

    Could not work for a woman who waddled like that.
