The writer of it is even worse, being a sort of rabid Thatcherite mouthpiece who has spewed bile on western govt measures over COVID in her febrile libertarian dreams.

I wonder if Scummo is sending Hunt out there to try and flush Labor out as pro border opening thereby allowing Scummo to position as the closed border candidate in an early election. (Even though the piece of sh*t has been spruiking open borders since the start) I smell the government searching for a wedge to use in an early election… Is Labor dumb enough to fall for it. Boom Time Are Ahead April 14, 2021 at 2:39 am Psychotic stuff. footsore April 13, 2021 at 9:09 pm Scott Morrison seems to be quite similar to his guru https://julieroys.com/hillsong-dallas-shuts-down-pastors-misused-funds/ “However, Janice Legata, a former Hillsong insider who served with the Bogards when they were at Hillsong New York, expressed skepticism concerning the Houstons’ statement. “I don’t understand how Brian Houston keeps getting to have it both ways,” Legata wrote in an email. She noted that the Houstons called people “gossipers and nay-sayers for speaking up about the abuses in his organization,” but when forced to admit those abuses, has failed to take responsibility. “Traveling the world as a leadership guy, a leader of leaders, but claiming to have no idea of the bad things happening under the leaders he produces and then taking no responsibility, no accountability for the consistent themes of abuse that keep emerging—Brian Houston is either an extremely ineffective leader or a scarily effective one.”” happy valleyMEMBER April 13, 2021 at 9:40 pm Houston and SFM – two peas in a pod?

RobotSenseiMEMBER April 13, 2021 at 11:02 pm So taking falsified documents into parliament, asking other ministers to “look into” protection laws on a property you hold an interest, selling off water holdings to a Cayman Islands company, allegedly committing sexual assault, covering up an alleged [email protected] in parliament or behaving like an A-grade online pest aren’t sackable offenses, but buying $20k in watches 3 years ago is where the line is drawn? That must be a fun tightrope to walk on a daily basis. migtronixMEMBER April 13, 2021 at 9:48 pm Are decibels violence? If a mysogynist whispers in public will anyone fell them?
