Why Malcolm Turnbull’s Government Will Win The Next Newspoll! – » The Australian Independent Media Network

The Andrew Bolt’s approach to commentary wrong move on wrong move on forget the facts even a clocks right twice a day just say it first. It lingers longer right or wrong ( Old Dog)

So it’s no surprise that these commentators don’t call out politicians for their lack of prophetic powers. After all, when everyone’s getting it wrong, it’s best just to move forward and hope that nobody has a memory or enough time to go back and point out that the most accurate thing that anybody said was: “Whatever. The sun will still rise tomorrow.”

Turnbull Hits Back At Criticism Of His Home’s NBN Connection: “14 Of The Bedrooms Don’t Have Internet Connectivity At All!” – The Shovel

Responding to reports that his harbour-side mansion had been specially connected to high-speed NBN, Malcolm Turnbull today pointed out that more than a dozen bedrooms, and at least one of the kitchens, are without internet connection altogether.

Asked what his message was to Australians who were still waiting for the NBN while he enjoyed a 100mbps plan, Mr Turnbull said, “I know how they feel”.

“There’s nothing more frustrating than ducking off to the butler’s quarters to get some work done, and then remembering that the new wi-fi doesn’t reach that far yet. So yep, I get it”.

Responding to a question from a small business owner who said he couldn’t download the files he needed run his office, Mr Turnbull said, “Have you tried the third study? I find the reception is often better there. Or, at a pinch, you could always go down to the entertainment room”.

Tony Mansplains Why Malcolm Shouldn’t Malsplain In Public! – » The Australian Independent Media Network

Yes, nobody thought to ask Tones, if criticisms should be kept private, why did he not follow his own advice and call Malcolm directly?

Tony, of couse, may have had a number of reasons.

1)Malcolm never listens to advice from anyone so it would be pointless.
2)Malcolm won’t take phone calls from Tony.
3)Tony knows that hypocrisy is so common that it’s rare that anyone is criticised for it, so this was another great chance to bag Malcolm, thereby reminding people that there was a much better PM recently.

Neo-Nazis are trying to spread hatred through comedy. This isn’t funny | Tauriq Moosa | Opinion | The Guardian

An anti-white supremacist rally in Charltottesville, Virginia. ‘If you believe that Nazi ideology should be opposed, you can’t just ignore the way this ideology is spread.’

it’s also important as it reveals how Nazis use satire, humour or “lolz” as partial immunity for their hate, allowing them tolerance from those who would (or should) otherwise repudiate it. As the guide states: “Packing our message inside of … humour can be viewed as a delivery method. Something like adding cherry flavour to children’s medicine.”
