"Gosh, it did escalate quickly though."
Koala Tales Out-of-School: When I was 18 I sent my pen-friend in Japan a koala (it's what one did over a half-century ago). No koalas were harmed in the making of that little furry creature - it had two interesting features: (a) it was Made in Australia (as things were back then); and (b) it was created using kangaroo fur. The first koala I recall seeing was at Taronga Zoo in Sydney. Years later I lived in a location where we'd fairly often see koalas in trees nearby. When I lived in Japan - I can't recall how many dozens of little clip-on koalas I distributed on special visits to schools and community groups - as a souvenir from Australia - all Made in China, I believe. That's a trade which has now possibly gone the way of barley - goodness knows! The last time I seriously spotted lots of koalas was just two-and-a-half years ago in the trees surrounding the Raptor Park on Kangaroo Island. Most of the island's koalas were incinerated in the disastrous fires of last summer.
I was tres amused on twitter when someone said they would be very disappointed if this legislation wasn't referred to as 'the Blinky Bill'. Love the Fiona Shaw as MI6's Carolyn Martens looking very British in the giff at the end.
Each and every one of them is a country member.
I'll be pissed if the NSW Nats are allowed just to resume business as usual as if this didn't happen...surely there has to be some fall out for being such arse gibbons...something...c'mon someone throw a frickin' bone here!
I'm reminded of a certain crack Suicide Squad from "Life of Brian"... they all drop to the ground, after knifing themselves, saying "That showed them."
Nice one Birmo.
I was incredulously bemused to see those arseclowns carry on about this shit this week. not like there is enough going on to fuck with peoples lives ATM then to throw this shit sandwich into the fan.
Once again I couldn't be bothered to read the details of the argument being made, but as always you have come to the rescue with a succinct and amusing summary to get me up to speed, thank you!
When it was "The Country Party" this was translated as "The Peasant's Party" in Italy, I guess by way of equivalence.
