Melbourne’s Wonderful Diversity

Diversity is like many things in life: if you do not exercise it in careful moderation, then you’re going to have a bad time.

To demonstrate this point, imagine you are cooking spaghetti bolognese and looking to add some herbs as a finishing touch. You could either:

  • add none;
  • use the tried and true combination of basil and oregano; or
  • be innovative and come up with your own combination of a few herbs, which may or may not include oregano and basil.

Alternatively, for those of the left, it would be remiss of me not mention that you could also choose to:

Saudis Lose Game of Chicken With USA

One thing that should give us cause for optimism for 2017 and beyond is oil. You know, the stuff the left-intelligentsia said we were supposed to have run out of by now – but which the Saudis recently reminded us that there’s more than we know what to do with.

Contrary to popular belief, low oil prices are not necessarily a good thing. Even when economic times are good, low oil prices are inflationary and can be the sign of bad things to come (e.g. the 1990s leading up to the Asian Economic Crisis). Alternatively, as we’ve recently found out, low oil prices can also be a symptom of tough economic times due to low demand and activity in key economies in Europe and the USA. Indeed, you don’t see many people cheering the super low petrol prices we’ve seen recently. After all, there’s little use in having plenty of cheap fuel to put in your car if you’ve got nowhere to go.

Butler Finds Out the Hard Way

This is the disgraceful Terri Butler. On 21 November 2016, Butler appeared to forget that parliamentary privilege doesn’t extend to ABC’s Q&A studios when she said the following about Calum Thwaits:

“This is the situation. And we never found out because it was not determined,” she said on Q&A. “I’m saying this is what the allegations were and the matters were not determined.”

When told that Thwaites had repeatedly ­denied it was his Facebook post, Butler said: “He would say that, wouldn’t he?”

(NB: Thwaits had recently had Cynthia Prior’s completely baseless claim against him – that he’d used the n-word in a Facebook post – summarily dismissed by the Federal Court).

ABC Doubles Down on Butler’s Rancid Remarks

This is Alex Wood and Calum Thwaits. TMR doesn’t know either of them from a bar of soap. However, they should be jointly nominated for Australian of the year for their services to our country’s freedom of speech.

Roz Ward and the Educational Marxists Keep Going

TMR has repeatedly warned that surrender was the last thing on the minds of Roz Ward and her Marxist cohort in their battle to brainwash as many children as possible:

If you think that society has now been purged of Roz Ward, think again. This piece of totalitarian slime is still on the payroll at La Trobe University and a Safe Schools manager (you’ll have to forgive me for reserving my opinion of La Trobe’s investigation into her behaviour*). She still has plenty more in store and did not resign her Victorian Government advisory position simply to skulk back into the sewer.

Never underestimate the extreme left’s thirstiness for implementing its sickening agenda.

(*) NB: that ‘investigation’ went absolutely nowhere.

Where normal people would feel shame, these nefarious extremists double down. And, like weeds in the yard, if you don’t pull them out roots and all, they’ll sprout back thicker and nastier.

The latest incursions into our nation’s education system show this yet again.

Prior’s Lucky Day

In an incredible twist of fate, Cynthia Prior may well extract some more money out of this situation yet – just not from the intended source.

To Domestic Violence (Against Women), Some of Our Parliament Says No

If you’re going to grandstand on an issue, then it’s wise to do it properly and not cut any corners.

On Monday (28 November 2016), Turnbull and Shorten stood arm in arm and ‘shoulder to shoulder’ with indigenous leaders outside parliament to show ‘solidarity’ with Charlie King’s No More campaign. The only things missing were the ‘Je suis Charlie’ placards:

Scaffidi Set to Face Hearing

It’s amazing how long politicians are able to withstand allegations such as these before facing justice – if ever:

Lord Mayor Lisa Scaffidi is facing the prospect of a five-day public hearing over her long-running travel and expenses scandal.

The Left’s Plebiscite Joke

The left has completely forgotten or disregarded the entire purpose of plebiscites.

Going completely under the radar recently has been South Australia’s utterly farcical citizens’ jury, which was convened to assess the merits of building a nuclear waste storage facility – or a ‘dump’ as the media has neutrally put it.

Seriously – Who Funded This Disgrace?

Since TMR’s last post on the QUT section 18C case, some have speculated whether Ms Prior was funded on a no-win, no fee basis. TMR puts this theory to the test.
