Speaker in Gay Harassment Scandal

The Speaker has been forced to deny allegations that he had harassed an openly gay male staffer. The adviser claims that he was only hired “for the purpose of pursuing a sexual relationship” and was harassed in person and by text message. Australia’s Parliamentary Speaker Peter Slipper has stood down temporarily, but strongly denies the allegations, saying they came as a complete surprise…

    What Gordon said to Rupert was reported months ago. Dave going to dinner at Rebekah’s was also reported months ago. Why are they trying to make out this is new news?

    The New news to come out today is that Dave is a Light Weight and Gordon of unbalanced mind.

    Bit slow, Guido. This story has been all over the Oz press for a week now. Although he’s stood down as Speaker, he still has a vote in Parliament which keeps Juliar’s shambles in power. What is it about red-headed welsh politicians that makes my teeth itch?

    You’re not wrong. Have you seen Camerons record? Flying to Ibitha on Easyjet etc.

    Gay Billy, you may remember him as the Mekon. Once the shadow regime finds out a politicians weakness they seek to exploit it, it gives them power over the elected official.

    The Great Solar scandal says:

    I have a feeling in my bones that in a few years time there are going to be lots of digruntled solar panel “investors” who have found that solar panels at such high lattitudes do not generate the income promised.

    What I really fear though is that they will be appeoached by ambulance chasing lawyers and take out class actions against the government (taxpayer) for financial compensation.

    And it’s not just siting them too far North, many round these parts are not even pointing South and are overshadowed by trees.

    Ie potential buyers will take one look at the useless, ugly panels on the roof and dr*i*ve to the next house on the list. And it will slowly, but surely, as you suggest, seep into the public consciousness that a good wind will see solar panels redistributed all over the country. Along with half the roof.

    We wonder how anybody could ever be so dense that they could be conned into buying, say, Sydney Harbour Bridge, yet solar panel installers are able to operate quite openly while educated people nod and smile in agreement that they are doing something very wise. If somebody suggested building a hydroelectric plant in the middle of the Sahara, they would treat it as a joke, but solar panels on a cloudy island at over 50 degrees of latitude seems a jolly neat idea to them.

    This is Brown we’re dealing with here.

    The man whose first priority on being slung out of office was to write a book about how the whole clusterfuck that happened on his watch was nothing at all to do with him.

    At least one of them is lying. Possibly both.

    But for sure Brown is lying. He lies even when he doesn’t need to lie. It’s habitual for the wicked and malicious c*unt.

    Look how he seeks to exonerate himself from Murdoch’s claim:

    ‘”The only phone call I had with Mr Murdoch in the last year of my time in office was a phone call specifically about Afghanistan and his newspaper’s coverage of the war,” he said.’

    There you go. Right there. From his own mouth. Interfering with the freedom of the press. Seeking to dictate what is reported.

    And yet, if you asked him tomorrow, in fact if you’d asked him five seconds later if he’d ever attempted to interfere with the press he’d have said without pausing for breath ‘No!’ he would say, ‘I have never sought to influence the press.’

    Somebody should try it just for a laugh tomorrow.

    Just watched an astonishing clip from a documentary about the early days of the Blair regime in 1997 focussing on Gordon Brown.

    It features cameos for Ed Balls and Charlie Whelan but the most spectacular (literally) vision was of a specky wee Hunt called Ed Milliband acting as the office tea-boy.

    Why should we be interested in some Oz sex issue when our country’s destroyed by corrupt Celtic Luddites, or incompetent Posh Boys with no discernible goals other than to stay in office and achieve heir to Blair status.

    From 2007 to 2010 McDoom increased public spending by about 30%. Is it too much to ask that Posh Boy and his chums just cut this 30% so we could back to the spend of 2007. I suppose it’s too simple for them to do anything so effective and honest.

    Instead we’re left in this purgatory of no real cuts, no real growth, no real monetary policy, no real money, just PR spin to survive on.

    Teacher numbers had been growing steadily in recent years, increasing by 32,000 (7.9%) between spring 2000 and November 2011.

    The total number working in England’s state school system is now 438,000 – a fall of 10,000 from 2010, a workforce survey taken in November shows.

    Meanwhile, numbers of teaching assistants in schools have almost trebled since 2000, rising to 219,800 in November 2011.

    They are both superficial snake oil salesman. Blair compounded this by lying us into the Iraq war.

    He was and remains a cnut of the highest order. Your reverence for him suggests you have some kind of mental disorder.

    Madison Bumgarner says:

    Talking of Saharan hydroelectric schemes, there was serious consideration given to connecting the Qattara depression to the Mediterranean sea with a canal. The idea being to fill up a big, deep hole in the desert with water and generate electricity at the same time. I think it went the same way as the great East Africa groundnut scheme.

    Bzzzt wrong. The parliament is one vote away from dissolution with a minority socialist regime. In the circumstances, this nutter’s habit of throwing out 6-8 conservatives every session on the flimsiest pretexts is a fucking disgrace. For starters.

    Also this speaker has run up RECORD expenses in the shortest time possible.

    A maggot.

    Yesterday there was a prog on Discovery World about something similar in Southern California. Seems like 100 years or so ago they created an artifical ‘sea’ several miles inland to be used for irrigation purposes. Worked well for quite some time but gradually got polluted by chemical run-off from the local farms and then began to evaporate leaving an extremely salty water residue totally unsuitable for irrig purposes. In the not too distant future there will be another salt flats in California and the farms will all go bust.

    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    The really funny thing is that Brown behaves as if he had a stellar reputation and track record to protect.

    Most think he’s:

    a) barmy
    b) incompetent
    c) a malevolent cnut

    Not much to protect there.

    Perhaps he is in Fucking Scotland.

    Plus of course the BBC/Leveson agenda is to tie Murdoch to the Tories and air-brush Murdoch’s ties with Labour from history.

    And a jolly fine job they’re doing in that regard.

    That’s a pretty misleading headline. Poor form Guido. You know what people are like – they won’t read the following paragraph often enough. Should be changed to make it clear it’s the Aussie Speaker.
