Weekend Worstoff 105

If you don’t think you’d look like enough of  a tool with a NKOTB number plate, try a Nickelback one. From Julien. Did we have this before. We’ve had some glorious entry statements, eg Darch, but this one makes entering Claremont seem like driving into Katanning or Moora. From WAtching.Lisa sees some of that ridiculous chalk graffiti. In this disposable world of ours, maybe graffiti is instantly disposable too. Oh, and poo on you by the way. And Mug Punter sees another church trying to be funny. Please don’t do this Jesus jockeys. Makes you look like you’d have a Niklbak numberplate.

    Least the Town of Claremont could have is a the royal coat of arms with the tasteful motto : ” Cunnus regimus vos”.

    The Town of Claremont sign leans slightly to the right; possibly a subtle statement by some slightly left-leaning government employment-creating-program gang who erected it in the 1980s. Smack bang on the town boundary is another sign pertaining to parking/standing/etc bylaws, ensuring every inch of potential local government revenue collecting space is utilised. And who is their neighbouring municipality who is too stingy to continue such a beautiful red brick pathway? The yellow Landcruiser (Claremont’s answer to the Toorak Tractor?) wouldn’t be out of place in Katanning either.

                Millie supports that, but come on, it’s widely known what Troy is.

                It’s more of a bombshell that someone from a minor party that loves to capitalise on its self generated image as purer, more sound, and more ethical than everyone else in the game shags the 2IC of the liberal party, the architect of the new workchoices (the greens like to believe they can replace Labor as the Unions’ party because of their ‘superior’ policies despite not being electable tp govern), and a known sexual harrasser.

                It’s completely disingenous of her to claim it has no bearing on her position as a non govt mp. The greens need the liberals out of the race for Freo to keep the seat; the member has literally been in bed with them!

                Carles won an historic by election just a year ago and appears to have shat on the greens’ chances of keeping a trophy seat. Very poor choice, not just on a personal level but on a political level. So yes, although it shoudln’t be, it’s more newsworthy than Male Politician Can’t Keep it in His Pants.

                      Wouldn’t it be nice if The Snedger were crucified for his indiscretions? Couldn’t happen to a nicer bloke. But Carles will probably take the flak, as usual is the case for women in politics, amongst other spheres, in these supposedly enlightened times. Liberal scum, Liberals go.

                      At least she had the decency to apologise to the public for her part in this sorry saga and will wear the embarrassment, not to mention any marital difficulties that may likely ensue. But good ol’ Troy Boy, like the real man he is, has gone underground in his Busso bunker. Fuckin’ wuss. What a fucking cunt.

                      Isn’t bonking someone from the polar opposite of politics not kinky enough for him? What next? Will it be revealed that he has some deviant fetish such as coprophilia, as TISM suggested that Adolf Hitler had? (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qtRyUZYIvPM)

                    Radio National AM – Thursday, 4 September , 2008 08:12:00
                    Reporter: Tony Eastley

                    TONY EASTLEY:Colin Barnett, welcome along to AM. You told AM after the last election you were quitting. What’s changed?

                    COLIN BARNETT: Well I’ve been conscripted back into duty. Look, I had decided that I would not retire but I would leave politics and pursue another career. There’s been some extraordinary circumstances in this state, first being a dreadful, dreadful Labor Government…

                    TONY EASTLEY: Some extraordinary circumstances with your own party?

                    COLIN BARNETT: Yeah and that was the second factor, certainly. And my colleagues, my parliamentary colleagues, the party and members of the community including my own electorate urged me to take on the leadership and I did so under one condition, and that is that everyone would work to win this election.

                    TONY EASTLEY: Did Troy Buswell leave it in good shape for you?

                    COLIN BARNETT: Troy had sort of a nightmare period but Troy is an extremely competent person. I very much hope that Troy can resurrect his standing in the community because he’s a very capable young man.

                    TONY EASTLEY: In hindsight, would it have been better for you to dig your heels in after the last election and say, “Look, I’m not going anyway; I’m staying on as leader”?

                    COLIN BARNETT: I don’t know Tony, to be honest. And, you know, I had been a minister for eight years then leader for four years and I felt it was the appropriate thing to do to step aside and give some other people a go.

                    TONY EASTLEY: Because people when they’re making a vote in this election might say, “Well look, Colin Barnett made a poor judgement there. He should have stayed on. He’s backing himself for the job now but he wasn’t going to back himself after the last loss.”

                    COLIN BARNETT: Circumstances have moved on and you know, if people back Colin Barnett this time, they’re backing a person who is honest, that’s my record in politics.

                    Because, you know, to a nationwide audience, may I just remind people, the Labor Government has been dreadful. We’ve had five sacked ministers, for example, just routinely passing on confidential information to Brian Burke and Julian Grill who were selling it. I mean, that is about as close to corruption.

                    It has damaged not only the standard of politics and government in Western Australia; it has damaged the state and the nation’s international reputation.

                    TONY EASTLEY: Will Troy Buswell be your Treasurer if you win?

                    COLIN BARNETT: Look, Troy is the Shadow Treasurer so it’s a fair bet he’ll get that job, but we have to win the election first and there’s eight seats to win. It’s a tough call.

                    gee, I went away for the weekend and missed it all.

                    just heard Sniffer saying that even though he used his govt. credit card to pay for a dirty weekend in Sydney, he did not see why defrauding the taxpayer should in any way disqualify him from being Treasurer.

                    he intends to pay it all back, so that’s alright then, isn’t it?

                    it’s not fraud if you pay it back (once you’ve been found out.)

                    he also used his Govt car to travel to trysts with Adele, which makes you wonder if they had a quickie on the back seat.

                    anyone now travelling in a Gov car will now wonder if the seat is stained with Troy’s semen and Adele’s fanny batter.

    Off of The Snedger and his left-field paramour (who’d have thunk it?), I have been guilty of crimes of personalised plates: at least they were complete words (“2LITRE” and “BEATLES” have been on my vehicles) and I have since absolved myself by offloading them to others who need the ego massaging, the “look at moi!” factor, that seems to be the common trait of those who display them (thankfully, I’ve grown away from the bogan desire for conspicuous consumption).

    In my own completely subjective opinion, I can’t abide Nickelback. Ugh. Not my cuppa tea at all, that aggro-sounding yet fey posturing and sonic utterances they eke out. But honestly, I reckon Choad Grogan, or whatever his name is, their lead groaner, sounds like he’s backed-up and dyin’ to reverse a long-wheelbased high-roof brown Transit van. I recommend that he immediately imbibe a full bottle of lactulose solution and scoff the entire contents of a bag of pitted prunes, to not only evacuate his chocked-up bowels, but the resulting removal of that strain might improve his voice. Perhaps he actually realises that his voice ain’t up to snuff, and that he spends a week eating bratwursts, fried eggs and dumplings for breakfast, lunch and dinner to get that tuffness in the vocal, in which Eddie Vedder seems to have spawned a whole host of less-erudite strainers and growlers who have little-to-nil of his perspective; instead they seem to model themselves on Bon Jovi. Of anyone I know who likes Nickelback, digs the Other Jersey Boys and vice versa. I will not criticise further on their tastes, just to state otherwise horses for courses.

    Again, not for me that particular segment of pop. I just think that the fellow could have a novel rockstar overdose, but on laxatives instead. Less full of shit too into the bargain.

    from Teh West:

    “Rumours of an affair between the WA Treasurer and Fremantle Greens MP Adele Carles had been circulating for months but most people who heard them, this reporter included, dismissed the whole idea as too ridiculous, too stupid, too far-fetched to possibly be true.”

    I thought the idea of being a journalist was to chase the story and determine whether rumour is fact, rather than just dismissing gossip and letting another newspaper get the scoop.

      reading through the papers, it seems that Buswell’s wife kicked him out over a week ago, and Carles’ husband also kicked her out.

      the story has been knocking around as rumour for weeks with journos in the Parliament gallery watching them text each other, and yet nobody ran the story.

      Gov drivers would have known, their own staff would have known, and Buswell is such a bragger that there must have been people all over the House who knew

      no doubt the Times approached Carles and threatened to print unless she gave them full disclosure, and so they got the scoop

      what on earth were the West doing? are they, like Barnett, asleep at the wheel?

      and nobody seems to have asked the most important question – did they ever shag at Parliament House?
