But who would bomb Ngunnawal?

By 19 April, 2013 41

ACT Policing executed a search warrant on a residence in Ngunnawal early yesterday evening (April 18) where on arrival they located a suspicious package.

ACT Policing General Duties members cordoned the area and requested the Specialist Response Group (SRG) Bomb Response Team to attend.

As a precaution residents in the area were notified and informed by police to evacuate whilst the SRG Bomb Response Team rendered the package safe at around 5.15am.

The residents who were evacuated have been allowed to return home.

ACT Policing would like to thank residences for their co-operation and understanding. Investigations are ongoing.

So… the nearby residents where asked to vacate their home for the whole night, from early evening when the package was spotted all the way through to 5:15am when police “rendered the package safe”?.

Damn.

So residents reported a loud bang at 2:30 am and police couldn’t confirm whether the item was detonated by the bomb squad? Who was it then,wylie coyote!

The Canberra Times is now confirming that the bomb squad did detonate the package and that it wasn’t a bomb.

“But who would bomb Ngunnawal?” Maybe someone from the majority of Canberrans who voted for a Liberal ACT government but were thwarted by idiots in Gungahlin and Belconnen who let everybody down by returning three Labor members and only two Liberals.

I might be ignorant of bomb disposal tactics but could they not have done that off site and saved many residents the hassle. Doesn’t say which street. As a resident of Ngunners I’m keen to know.

Why not nuke that festering cesspit of chardonnay socialism and latte liberalism, the inner-north, for returning a greens candidate. I’m certain that the Manic Monkey Cafe of Inner-Urban Nirvanaville that Barnaby Joyce keeps referring to is somewhere in OConnor.

Seeing as you clearly don’t know what a majority is:

Majority: The number by which votes for one candidate in an election are more than those for all other candidates combined.

You’re welcome.

And now the package has been vaporized they will never know what it contained.

Chardonnay is often awful, don’t you find? Sauvignon blanc socialism is much nicer.

I was also wondering if detonate is the right word for when you blue up a not bomb. I’m going to detonate the front doorbell and then I’ll detonate the dog! They aren’t explosive so…

Not that anyone would want to keep spouting inaccuracies? Some 41 more people Territory wide voted for the ACT Liberals as compared to ACT Labor.

Meanwhile, 23,773 voted for the ACT Greens, 12,065 of which were in the Molonglo electorate and some 4,966 of which were specifically for Shane Rattenbury.

But of course, lets disenfranchise those 23,773 electors and their wishes (one assumes that most of them would have preferred a Labor Government to a Liberal Government considering how Zed spoke aboput the Greens post-election) and instead ensure that the 41 person “majority” of the Liberals is put into power.

Why are they thanking houses and not the residents?

Blueing up bombs is a cerulean effort.

My strongly held belief is that anything that Barnaby Joyce disparages must be good, worthwhile and deserving of support.

I suspect they know exactly what it was, hence their decision to detonate it.

Both “residents” and “residence” sound almost the same. It’s the spelling that is the problem.
