Turnbull goes down screaming

with 3 comments

nagyon-depis-life-sucks.jpgMore like a 5-year old than a banshee – Malcolm ‘animal lover’ Turnbull has picked election day to prove that Geffrey Cousins isn’t the only millionaire who can place a full-page ad. The Liberal Party, according to this article, have placed a full-page ad telling the voters of Wentworth (Bondi, Kings Cross, Darlinghurst, Double Bay, etc.) that if they don’t make sure that Turnbull wins, his legal advice is that he can force a by-election.

Sounds like he gets his campaign advice from the same place as News Limited’s Caroline Overington.

Wait a minute… Of course he does. The husband of her good buddy and Oz-colleague, Janet Albrechtsen – John Howard’s culture-Scud on the ABC board – is his media advisor.

Wow. What a small world.

  2. Hi Bernice – why, thankyou 😉

    I just amended the Overington reference as I realized I’d written in a hurry. There is actually one more degree of separation than I had described, but with all the usual suspects more or less sharing the same ideological, political, and employment cardio-vascular system what’s the diff!?

    Hoping it’s an early call, and that right-wing Xtians and alumium smelter operators are throwing themselves off rooftops by 11pm.

  3. […] the anointment spat from on-high by Long Gone John. No matter, humourless ass-hat Malcolm “I’m gonna take your balls and go straight home” Turnbull has thrown his hat in the ring, according to this article. Question is, when an […]
