you could see how the budget emergency slept in a nest it made out of twigs and drinking straws

The share market has responded positively

an old shoe box 'he found'. Obviously it was an undocumented and unclaimed bribe, probably with the labels discretely removed.

Shoe box?
Nahhhh.
It is an old Australian tradition that our pollies accept bribes in, and only in, brown paper bags.

Our former 'beloved' Qld Premier Joh Bejelly peters son, started the tradition for infrastructure building without nasty red tape like, open honest tendering processes. He was our hero.

He had a henchman called russ hinze who liked the sleazy side of politics. He accepted the brown paper bags from illegal casino operators and illegal brothel operators.

He had a henchman called terry lewis who was the police commissioner. He dealt with the sleaziest side of the drug money so that russ and joh only had clean brown paper bags while terries was greasy. So terry was the one to go to jail.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Terry_...police_officer)

Terence Murray "Terry" Lewis (born 29 February 1928) is a former Queensland Police commissioner who was convicted and jailed for corruption and forgery as a result of the Fitzgerald Inquiry. He was stripped of his knighthood and two other awards in consequence.[1]

Lewis has continued to protest his innocence, and sued his former lawyers and pursued appeals.[2] However his appeals failed in August 2005.[3]

Russ Hinze was one of Bijelke's ministers. The plebs used to call him "The Minister For Everything. Unlike Queensland's police commissioner he escaped a prison sentence by managing to die, probably because of his obesity, before he could be charged for his crimes.



The Queensland premier and his minister.

I can assure you, fear really is a great motivator, I mean ask anyone who is polling at 46% two party preferred nationally

Wait did I say that out loud?

http://www.theguardian.com/commentis...or-your-safety

context: Border Force (yes they call it that) announced that as part of a weekend police blitz in Nyfb, they were going to randomly stop people on street corners and check their visa statuses. a few hours, several thousand protesters on the railway station steps and several hundred thousand outraged tweets later, the whole thing cancelled owing to the little technicality that they don't have the legal power to do that http://www.abc.net.au/news/2015-08-2...celled/6733008

(if you want a good laugh, look up #BorderFarce on Twitter)

Thank goodness.

For reasons known only to the gods of BBC Canada, there is an Australian airport customs show my husband watches. About two thirds of it is Indonesian people trying to sneak interesting food into the country.

I don't know what that means.

I don't know what that means.
it means our english cuisine of fish an' chips, egg an' chips, roast beef an' chips all with bbq sauce or vinegar is not good enough for them and that's why they should be kept out of our great, beautiful, god fearing, Queen loving land!

from that other article I quoted
Quote:
As for this "low level" guff, the position of "Regional Commander for Victoria and Tasmania" seems pretty senior to the ordinary person. The man holding that office, Don Smith was quoted in that release in terms leaving little room for misunderstanding, advising that said officers would be positioned "at various locations around the CBD speaking with any individual we cross paths with".
