Enslave Tibet! Sheepy the awkward protester at the Canberra torch relay. *Video*

TheHunters 30 April 2008 52

Sheepy of the hunters takes on the Chinese rent-a-crowd at the Beijing torch relay in Canberra! Armed with a camera and an “Enslave Tibet” sign, Sheepy sets out on a solo mission to express his undying love for the motherland, CHINA!

[ED – Anyone who has no idea what this video is about have a look at this comment here in the Torch relay thread by TroyWilliams. The video’s poster, TheHunters, even goes so far as quote Troy & the-RiotACT to describe their Chaser style prank. Well Done TheHunter, Sheepy, et al!]

I’m a repubican (so to speak), but I’m unintelligent and can’t read … lol

Rudd gathered 1000 of Australia’s brightest people, almost 100% were in favour of a republic.

Studies have shown that on average ACT residents are the smartest and highest paid people in Australia. In the referendum a majority of the ACT were in favour of a republic.

Therefore, monarchists are stupid.

I don’t know what all this debate is about… Pigeons are rats – they just have feathers instead of fur.

I was talking about you saying that you though Rudd is only doing what Howard would have done. I pointed out a few examples to prove you are incorrect in your idea.

Then i responded to your comment about whether or not the 2020 summit proved support for Rudd. I responded by saying the summit has nothing to do with what i was talking about. I was talking about polls.

Then i made a comment of a ‘no, you’re a dick’ sort of quality.

lol @ “The committee to set up the working group will ultimately have to show how inventing a pigeon rat will help Working Families before funding can be allocated to set up a working group to appoint a committee to investigate the feasibility of inventing a pigeon rat.”

…I’m sure DoHA and FACSIA are cooperatively working on it right now…

lol @p1 too…

You two should stop flirting and just get a room :o)

I have no idea what you are talking about now….

You believe Rudd. Great. but you also believe everything he has changed is only ‘alcopops’. You think John Howard would have apologised? even though he refused to do so? You believe John Howard would have signed Kyoto? Even though he refused to do so? You believe John Howard would have rolled back work choices, even though he implemented it and refused to roll it back? Im very interested in your logic behind beliving those things.

I didn’t mention the 2020 summit at all. I mentioned polls. Which indicate Rudd has around 70% approval. Don’t try and change the subject matter, it doesn’t add to your argument.

Agreed it will happen, im looking forward to it.

For the record your started being patronising before me, when you said “And you asked again, so I replied. Which I’m beginning to think you have a problem with. Therefore, if you don’t want an answer, then don’t ask a question.” – i merely responded in kind.

Thumper Thumper 12:48 pm 01 May 08

I do believe Mr Rudd, apart from a few things, is pretty much just following what Howard was doing.

And I can’t dislike him as a person because I don’t know him. And you really do draw some seriously long bows. Tell me, do you believe there is a ground swell of opinion for a republic based upon Rudd’s 2020 summit?

Whatever, as I said, it (a republic) will happen.

No no im glad you answered, now we discuss it. See how it works?

And you can leave out the patronising statements. It doesn’t add to your argument.

tap tap 12:24 pm 01 May 08

No no im glad you answered, now we discuss it. See how it works?

Ok so you think everything the government has done is nothing. Well I think you are mistaken. Frankly its ridiculous. In five months they have done plenty. Over the next few years we should see the fruits of the seeds they are planting and have planted. The examples I gave you think are meaningless, I don’t. You think they are meaningless because… they are only starting points to solve massive problems? because John Howard wouldn’t have agreed? Because you dislike Rudd as person maybe?

Also we have already discussed your idea that only a election is a guide to what the population is thinking, that is also ridiculous. Recent polls are a better indicator of what the population is thinking than an old election. This has been proved numerous times. As an example (used before on a previous post…) why was John Howard worried before last election, according to your idea he should have been happy because he won the last election. Peoples opinions change over time, polls are taken to try to get a grasp of how people are feeling. We can use them on RiotACT as a guide to how people feel.

Alcopops…

I’m putting it down to Rudd and his government being new to the job and still finding their feet, at least, I hope that it what it is. I agree, 5 months is not long enough, but the portents at this stage are not promising.

And you asked again, so I replied. Which I’m beginning to think you have a problem with. Therefore, if you don’t want an answer, then don’t ask a question.

And we should clarify something- about 50% of Australians agree with what he is doing. The other 50% voted elsewhere.

tap tap 11:55 am 01 May 08

Ok so he has signed kyoto, apologised, began changing workchoices to name but a few. Isn’t he pulling out of iraq soon as well? He has done things so far. I dispute this ‘fact’ that these things are merely symbolic. Or just populist, maybe popular, but he cant help it if australia agrees with what he is doing. But yes, too short a period, too use your own words ‘jumping the gun a bit aren’t we?’

The committee to set up the working group will ultimately have to show how inventing a pigeon rat will help Working Families before funding can be allocated to set up a working group to appoint a committee to investigate the feasibility of inventing a pigeon rat.

Thumper Thumper 11:40 am 01 May 08

But seriously, so far all we have seen from Rudd is populist and symbolic.

So my observation is built upon facts, albeit, over a relatively short period..

And you did ask me, so I told you, and therefore you can’t complain.

Maybe he will change, let us see.

Thumper Thumper 11:33 am 01 May 08

I’m sure that, if anyone is going to invent a pigeon rat, Mr Rudd can do it.

And if not he’ll wax lyrical about “setting up committees and working groups to investigate the possibilities of an interspecies cogenical pairing under ethical nonmisgivings to forward the ultimate cause and objective with the aim being that they, the pigeons, and others non human entity partnerships, that would be, one suspects, the rats in question, will not be misunderstood within the polymonic tangents of unheralded study in the basis of, but not to the exclusion of, joining two such creatures together for the fulfilment and utter enjoyment of bipartisan parties, notwithstanding that under these new synthesises one must ensure and be sure that the ethical position of those investigating these possibilites be scrutinised and placed under a transparent and translucent process in which the bonding of the two is transmogrified to a greater plain whereby learning can be supplemented and indeed …”

Ahhh… what was I saying, I lost it…

tap tap 11:21 am 01 May 08

I’d say you pre-judged the K-Rudd, you may be right, but we don’t know yet.

Pigeon rat. Ah the simpsons. 🙂

ant ant 11:20 am 01 May 08

I’m sure that, if anyone is going to invent a pigeon rat, Mr Rudd can do it.

Thumper Thumper 11:05 am 01 May 08

Maybe I have misjudged Mr Rudd.

just maybe he really does want to invent a pigeon rat…

tap tap 11:02 am 01 May 08

But considering he hasnt had time to prove himself one way or another, it follows that your opinion is without base and you should really reserve judgements like that until some evidence surfaces one way or another.

Hehehehe…
