I walked with a Zombie

Why am I seeing this Worst in the Western Patriot first? Frank Calabrese, are we not brothers? Did not my wolves suckle you at birth?  The Patriot brings to light the WA Govt Cabinet ministers’ website. A site that gives risible a bad name.  Look at all of them. Yes Norman Moore is underwater. Brendon Grylls is grainier than a ploughed field. And as Teh Patriot points out, Terry Waldron “relaxing on the beach” is champagne comedy. Don’t let this happen again.

    Robyn McSweeney appears to need some white balancing, and Norman Moore has crabs.

    The less said about Liz Constable’s use of the blur tool the better.

    This is, indeed, a bad website.

    Why isn’t this list in alphabetical order?

    Graham Jacobs’ page is pretty handy. Donna Faragher seems like the odd one out with no background theme – she should have been pictured in front of a leaky lead shipment.

    I see that Colin Winston Barnett has opened his big fat gob to suggest that the boat people blew themselves up in an attempt to upstage the ‘children overboard’ incident.

    We shall have to wait for the official report later today to see if he is right, but the glee with which he rushed to a press conference to announce it (and he doesn’t give many these days now that he forces his ministers to front up to announce budget cuts) suggests that he is grubby little opportunist bigot like Little Johnny.

    perhaps he should have been photographed in front of a burning boat for his web page.

    The UN High Commissioner for Refugees says asylum applications in Australia increased by 19 per cent last year, from 3980 to 4750. How many came by boat? 179.

    This year the number of boat people is already higher, at 221. But it still is tiny compared with those coming by air. Refugees worldwide have increased by 12%, and Australia still accepts fewer per capita than its allies.

    so this all smacks of the Tories being all out of ideas on how to attack the government.

    I am waiting for someone to coin a good epithet for this incident. May I propose “Afghans Aflame”?

    Has Simon O’Brien been hanging out with Chopper Read?

    The Western Patriot. Now I could stomach Parrott or Traitor but Patriot ?! an they are commies ?! What’s the world coming to. Coming back to his deadness , the pale fart of a shadow of Mussolini ( echos of Falangist), Col’n . I will use every power I have to ridicule you , you low turd.

    Another unattributed Wikipedia image on TWP here:



    Still no money for photographers?


    • Bill O'Slatter says:

      The image is from Sabrenet on Flickr. The licence allows you to use the image as long as you attribute it , which the western “Patriot” has not done

    Via William Bowe, guess who is a candidate in the fremanttle By-Election.

    Jan ter Horst (Independent). Ter Horst has been making himself known locally with claims of council corruption, which he has publicised by daubing slogans on his house and driving a car with a coffin on top. He has been in long-running dispute with the council over a neighbouring strata development which has blocked his ocean views.


    • shazza says:

      NO surprises there Frank. Jan ter Horst is one bitter man .
      There must be photos of his house somewhere on this site by now???? He no longer has the coffin atop his vehicle.

    The Shazz ,typeing the following into google.com text’s box :
    Jan ter Horst site:theworstofperth.com
    gives you

    Ta Bill,
    although the one photo doesn’t quite convey the level of rage than emanates when you see it up close. Well worth a drive-by when next in South Freo.


  11. thewinchester says:

    I must channel Derryn Hinch at this point:
    “shame, shame, shame”

    Such a failure and shows how much of a clue Barnett and his lackeys at the Government Media Office have about the online space.


  12. And the PDF doesn’t even show the shadow cabinet. It’s just a ….wel it’s just a PDF of text.


  13. Paracleet says:

    I like the ‘contact the minister’ link on the frontpage. We’d all like to think daubing a giant @ on my window and back lighting it will bring him out of the shadows to assist deep throat style.
