By johnboy - 12 November 2013 21

It is ironic that it was the Labor party that gave electricity a bad name and now it is the Labor party that now takes offence at the word electricity being used in parliament and now considers it an insult.

Please explain?

How did Labor give electricity a bad name? When and in what context, did they take offence when it was used in parliament?

The Speaker of the House of Representatives has ruled that it is not against Standing Orders to refer to Shorty as Electricity Bill. The Labor Party is outraged and obviously considers Electricity an insult.

The problem with this is that you are painting yourself into a corner with this sort of crap.

The facts are apolitical.
If you make your politics dependent on an exclusion of the facts (like Abbott, Minchin, Hunt, and their 50% of the Liberal Party are doing), then you are steering your politics onto the path of inevitable irrelevancy.

The Catholic Church went through all this with the Galileo trial and their attempt to contradict fact with their political dogma. Ultimately, they had to convene Vatican II and recant from their position of anti-reason, opposing the natural sciences, to reach a more modern state where they recognised that dogma does not trump fact and that science is valid.

It’s little wonder that Abbott failed in his calling – he clearly does not have the intellect to understand where his politics are leading him.

Posterity will deal very, very harshly indeed with Tony Abbott – think Neville Chamberlain, another man who was unable to embrace the challenge of his time, and is remembered as a betrayer and as a weak fool.

Can’t be true. The climate changed in the past well before there were any socialists around.

Wow. Winner.

DUB said :

Anyone taking bets on numbers that will turn up for this clowns’ parade?

DUB you have NO credibility here.

You lied about the pro-wind rally in June:

DUB said :

… the “Pro-wind” one in Civic had a nice “rent-a-crowd”, who were paid 20 bucks each in cash to attend …

And you lied about the numbers attending the Refugee rally in Woden in July:

DUB said :

I observed from 1230 hrs to 1245 hrs – crowd went from 5 people down to 3. No one was dressed up in any costume. Must say, I thought there would be at least 15 to 20 people, not 5 down to 3.LOL.

When the pictures of the rally show around 400 people attending.

DUB you make stuff up. What lies are you going to tell us about this rally?

Face paint, umbrellas, red, orange & yellow clothing combined with singing and ranting….sounds like born-again BARCODE.
