A great chance to buy a bit of history, I wonder if they deliver to Canberra šŸ˜‰




There is a valuable lesson for everybody here…….. do not leave superglue on the bedside table, EVER!


A Dunedin woman called police after she reached for lip balm in the dark, applied super glue instead and glued her lips together.

It reminds me of an old limerick:

There was a young couple from Delhi/Stuck together belly to belly/ One very dark night/They used araldite/ Instead of petroleum jelly.

Dear WIN network, can I please have the job?

Sad to hear that Canberra’s only news program is now to be filmed out of Wollongong, a real loss for the area!


Well if you are looking for someone, I would LOVE the role….. PICK MEĀ 





Kevin Rudd returns to the top job

Kevin Rudd has bet Julia Gillard in a Labor Caucus ballot with 57 votes to 45, a massive swing from Julia’s win over Kevin earlier in the year with a 71 to 31 win over Kevin.

So once the GG declares it true (after Julia tells her) Kevin will be the PM.

Along with Julia standing down is Wayne Swan, Steven Conroy and Craig Emerson. A major change to the front bench, though some would argue it is much needed. The ballot is still underway for the deputy leader.

So a massive night in politics for Australia and especially so for Labor. Ā Time now for Kevin to ‘drive the bus

The question now is, will Labor hold back from some of these dramatic loses? Not sure, but happy to watch from the sidelines.

Right, time to watch the State of Origin and continue my lovely bottle of Whiskey, night all!

I agree with Julia Gillard

UPDATE: 6:40PM, Bill Shorten has thrown his support behind Rudd. He is a Labour Powerbroker and the voice of the Unions, Rudd all but has the nomination tied up!

Wow…. I never thought I would utter such words

The Prime Minister of Australia has called for an end to speculation and division by calling for a ballot tonight at 7pm. She has also said that the loser should quit politics immediately. I agree, it is time for this crap to end and for someone to lead the country until the next election, whenever that may be.

TheĀ Prime MinisterĀ has employed a similar tactic to the one she deployed back in February – bringing the ballot on quickly rather than letting numbers drift away over time.

It is a high risk strategy but, if the past three years have demonstrated anything, it is that MsĀ GillardĀ is not afraid of a fight and that she has nerves of steel.

The difference this time is thatĀ Ms GillardĀ has set the bar high for the loser – that he (because we all know who she is talking about) will leave politics forever and stop acting as a thorn in the side for whoever remains in control.

Tonight will be the third time the caucus has dealt with the party’s leadership since the 2010 election (the previous occasions were February 2012 and March this year).

The Prime Minister is about as cunning as Rudd, I have no doubt she believes she has the numbers, if not she would never make this call. All eyes will be on the TV screens tonight from 7pm.

As Homepaddock hints at, will the MPs listen to the public or the unions?

Kevin Rudd challenges…… again

In what is an unsurprising but very calculated move Kevin Rudd is once again vying for the top seat…. more tonight


Kevin has obviously spent a lot of back room time shoring up support, he would not do this otherwise
