  1. What I’ve enjoyed most is gauging the abbundance of wishful thinking from both sides & their supporters.

  2. I just want to know the truth, I suspect I will never know just like the last bunch and it’s a pretty poor democracy for it!

  3. I voted “Absolutely”. This was like the 1945 VFL “Bloodbath” Grand Final.

  4. Very well done joni..and one cannot vote more than once..so make your vote count!

  5. Who voted “No”?? – have them taken out and forced to watch Today Tonight and A Current Affair on repeats till they repent.

  6. Guilty Joni

  7. What’s this, sorry we’ve already counted your vote?

  8. Haha – I’ve set it up so you cannot vote more than once… and don’t any geeks tell John how he can vote more than once. We want this poll to be accurate and scientific – 🙄

  9. Accurate and scientific? Heavily weighted in favour of poli – tragics getting the greatest enjoyment out of this scandal. Wider poll needed. Lol

    Hope big Mal resigns though.

  10. *laugh* John needs there to be some financial doom involved for this to be fun 😀

    All we got was the inevitable doom of Turnbull &/or Swan. There was no credit card statistics or interest rates to be seen anywhere!

  11. And here I was, thinking I should be getting excited about this explosive development. If it involved John Howard instead of Kevin Rudd, I would have been all over it – saying ‘See, he is a little Rodent!’

    Voters unmoved by ‘utegate’ – poll

    THE scandal over the OzCar affair does not appear to have altered voting intentions just yet, a poll showed today.

    The weekly Essential Research online survey found Labor’s support remained solid at 57 per cent on a two party preferred basis, while the coalition stayed at 43 per cent.

    The poll of 1121 respondents was conducted between June 17 and 21, which would have taken into account Friday’s explosive allegations over the OzCar affair during a Senate hearing.

    The economy is turning to shit, and everyone’s worried about a f&%king ute (wink)

  13. Ben

    Rumour has it ‘ute’ sales are expected to fall (Lol)

  14. @John:
    See, now you’re getting into the swing of it 😛

  15. “f&%king ute”

    Yeah, the shaggin’ wagons of my era were much more fun. At least you didn’t get wet if it rained (from the sky).

  16. I’m surprised the Coalition haven’t tried to link the second stimuls package to Ute Gate – you know – the part of the package where you can claim up to 50% rebate on the purchase of equipment like utes … Clearly this was favourable treatment for Rudd’s mate.

  17. The way this government is going they could fit the whole solar industry in the back of the ute!

  18. I voted ‘other’ ’cause Reb sent me an “email” saying that Gutter Trash are doing an intelligent , tough, in depth, take no prisoner synopsis of this affair, not the run of the mill proffered here.
    ( weep, Crikey)

  19. There you go Reb, stopped this mob dead in their tracks! all refreshing Gutter Trash..

  20. Sorry..I don’t know what Gutter Trash is. Is there a link that I can go to?

  21. You don’t know what Gutter Trash is????!!!!!!!

    shame on youse!!

  22. Min – there is a link to the right – but be warned, it is not a place for nice people.

  23. scaper…, on June 22nd, 2009 at 4:45 pm

    Agree, scaper, that really is dumb!

    Where are the Greens?

    So, don’t put in solar generation in the outback just buy more diesel and add to the greenhouse gases and deplete the oil supply …

    Environmentally friendly my @r$#0!e …

  24. Min! Don’t go there!

  25. pack of wooses!

  26. If anyone hears a popping sound from the NSW/QLD border it will be Min exploding from reading (g)utter trash.

  27. You mean that women aren’t welcome…

  28. Ah well, if I’m not welcome then I won’t go there.

  29. Min – not that women are not welcome, more that it is the public bar to the blogocrats being the saloon bar.

  30. And women are not welcome in the public bar?

  31. The gutter is a good place to spew out one’s frustrations…now, where is that goat!

  32. No – more that the air is a bit “blue”.

  33. And women don’t also have frustrations that they would like to speak about? But say myself, KittyL, RN, Angel, Jane, Lekhni aren’t welcome.

  34. No no no no Min – I am sure that reb welcomes you, just that the tone over there is a bit more crude….

  35. Min,

    Everyone is welcome at the Gutter.

    Let’s just say it has a “Mature” rating whereas Blogocrats is more “PG”

  36. Min, point taken my male chauvenism(?) means I try to be a gentleman where ladies are concerned.

    I still open doors and allow females to enter/exit before me (not too many older’n me now!) a few years ago I used to cop a bit of flack from young “ladies” – not now – smiles and thank you’s(?).

    Any way the intentions are good but I have always recognised/believe that we are are all equal (my upbringing clashes with my education sometimes) 😀

  37. Right – time for me to head to the gym. Need to get myself on a cross-trainer in front of the TV with ABC to watch the news and the 730 Report.

    Memo to self: make sure you go to toilet – you do not want to wet yourself with excitement.

  38. See the trouble an “email” can cause? He He.
    It’s Ok Min, got Sharp banned (sort of) and Tom ‘the Prince’ has been reported to the ethics tribunal( for grifting),
    “it is not a place for nice people.” It’s the world, my man, (um), fellow, face the truth, reality, no mist softly drifting through the pages of life, Gutter Trash lays it out..
    “public bar” The Domain on the soap box, where truth will out.
    Am getting a bit sick and tired of the Libs after the Rodent years,the deceit and downright austerity to Australians to prop up their (so called doctrine). I can see that they may well and truly have stuffed this up, their motto ‘If you can’t change spots on a Leopard, change Leopards’.. in the mean while, you and me are working away to pay these bastards for their power egos, and Iv’e had a gut full.

    #Well said Min.. in fact I’m very sure you ladies would have more than we blather on about! (frustrations)

    Joni has a sudden appointment :).. Go Min.

  40. min, I wouldn’t characterise myself as in any way a chauvinist.

    What you may find however is flavoursome nastiness of a different kind.

    A grain of salt & a nice big cup’o’concrete is healthy & sometimes necessary.

    It takes considerable effort sometimes to be polite here at Blogocrats; as necessary & conducive to the free-flowing of opinion as that may be.

    Me like’em da gutter.

    Using “necessary”, or by default any other word, more than once on a given post is bad form & unnecessary…yuk, yuk.

    LM is a feature of the Gutter.

  41. Well ok..I don’t mind crude. And I know that you are all good blokes, good family people. And Reb..how the heck you ended up with such a wonderful partner as Victor is beyond my comprehension..you had just jolly well appreciate him.

  42. Thanx min.

    I similarly give you the credit for having enough intelligence to determine INTENT.

  43. It was just the exclusionism..the secret sub-blog which was a wee bit creepy.

  44. more than once on a given post is bad form & unnecessary…yuk, yuk.
    :).

  45. The pondslime clause is in effect.

  46. Anyone hear the story about a leader of the Opposition who believed an email read out to him over the phone by a journalist? And he..wait fot it..thought it was true..

  47. Umm..wait for it rather than wait fot it…although fot it sounds good too.

    All I know, HD, is that aerostart is flammable, and the pressurised can explosive, so half a can or two halves of one can is sometimes not enough.

    “All I know, HD, is that aerostart is flammable, and the pressurised can explosive, so half a can or two halves of one can is sometimes not enough..”
    As an ex shearer and owner of of stock, I made light (pun not intended) of Toilethound, (Aerostart is pure injection to get ‘slow vehicle motors into action, usually old diesel motors on cold mornings ) it did sound a bit odd, so I shifted it from the animal to the shearer,just can’t figure out why such a statement would be made.The Rams are there simply because they supply us with a living, selling meat.Mind you , he may well be a satirist, he worded Mary (for the Catholics) in an odd way, I don’t think he would be considered for the welfare of my stock..

  50. Reb..how the heck you ended up with such a wonderful partner as Victor is beyond my comprehension..you had just jolly well appreciate him..

    It leaves me baffled too Min. Personally I blame his poor eyesight. I suspect he thinks I’m actually someone else..

  51. What – he thinks you’re not a WCP?

  52. Joni,

    He’s Chinese. They appreciate that completely money-driven, wealth and ambition driven lifestyle that goes hand-in-hand with being a WCP.

    As long as one is civil about it..

    And dresses nicely too.

    And of course, being a patron of the arts (my erstwhile career) is very impressive, particularly my knowledge of Salvidor Dali as we perused the exhibition.

  53. Reb..so where does this leave joni?

    BTW..I have to lodge a protest about the Blogopoll. If you click onto Vote, it provides the number of people who have voted which is completely contra to the Sky News Rule of polling.

  54. Reb..so where does this leave joni?

    We all know that Joni is a bleeding heart socialist leftie..
