Lockdownunder update: Dics will be dics.

Covvie took a wrinkled little nonentity and turned it into a big bullying bogey.

Lifted from the comments at The Daily Sceptic, this affectionate word picture was aimed at Mark Drakeford, First Minister of Wales. It could apply to a multitude of other covidiots, of course – among them Victoristan’s Danfuhrer and Masky Mark McClown, High Pontiff of The Western Lands.

Masky threw a brickbat at Dan during the week over funding for the 2026 Commonwealth Games. Dan, having a hide of the sheerest gossamer, fired back. But the Games were just the pretext. Although they operate at state level, Masky had a very good federal election last week and Dan did not. According to the Australian, 16 booths out of 20 in Danfuhrer’s electorate indicated a swing against Labor. Several swings were double-digit high.

Sky News: The Victorian Premier said November’s state election will be close, but argued voters knew the difference between federal and state issues.  I told you there’d be some of that!

I just wish I was hearing it on this side of Lockdownunder.

Labor did well here, taking four seats off the Liberals with a ten percent swing. Information on this result has me baffled: according to another reader at Daily Sceptic, their WA friends voted Labor to punish the Liberals for the damage done to the state’s mining industry by Colin Barnett.

Colin Barnett was state premier before Masky and Labor won government in 2017. That’s right – West Australians voted to smack a premier who’s been gone five years.

That’s one of the things that makes this state special. People really know how to nurse a grievance here – they can carry a chip on their shoulder until it grows into a plank.

Any pain Colin Barnett caused has been equaled by the covid regime under McClown, if not surpassed. And when Masky points a finger at Dan, three more point back at him.

Local media were crowing about ‘the  McGowan effect’ last Sunday. God, as if he needs the encouragement!

The luxury of time… That’s something else Masky has over Dan. Three years versus six months to the next state election.

Looking back to Canberra again – I could be wrong (and I probably am) but I anticipate our new federal clownshow going big on ‘climate action’ and lighter on The Dreaded C. Climate action is something that happens elsewhere – apart from solar panels on the roof it’s not immediately visible.

Fauci junk juice is a different matter. Sitting at the dinner table, looking around at your vaccinated family, you’d be wondering by now what you’ve bought into.

After more than 2 years of lockdowns, the Dallas Cheerleaders finally report for practice.

The F1. No, not the race.

The Australian submachine gun.

Living proof that you should never get on the bad side of a sweet looking Australian grandmother!

It’s such a rare event.

Another day, another ‘fucking hell, those vaccines aren’t so great after all!’ story.

Lockdownunder Update: Election fallout.

The short version:

Australia’s Liberals, UK’s Conservatives, America’s Republicans. All have been afflicted by the delusion that they can win the voters by moving further to the left. Large factions in all parties cling to the notion that being more like the opposition is the answer.

Dave Pellowe said it loud and clear:

Dear Liberal Party, don’t preselect ‘moderates’. Don’t campaign to impress the ABC, Guardian or SMH. Don’t think being kind of Green impresses climate alarmists.

The Nationals didn’t lose any seats, and they are clearly perceived as climate realists, not given to tokenism or ‘action’ at any cost.

But your virtue-signalling, Christian-hating ‘moderates’ offered zero differences from their leftist or radical leftist competitors, & many of the seats you long considered ‘blue ribbon’ and ‘safe’ have been trashed by their smug disregard for your conservative grass roots.

Liberal Senator Alex Antic, one of the courageous few in Canberra during lockdown, agrees.

John Roskam from the Institute of Public Affairs describes how traditional party loyalties have become inverted.

Scotty From Upfucking has stepped down. The new Liberal leader, at this point standing unopposed, will be Peter Dutton. I made Mr Dutton internet famous in this meme a few years ago.

Dutton, unlike his predecessor, isn’t desperate to be everybody’s best friend. As shown in last week’s update, when Morrison made a bold statement you could be sure that he would backtrack on it. Dutton stands his ground. His views on illegal immigration made him unpopular (and that’s putting it mildly) among the SJW brigade.

But if there’s anyone who sets lefty heads on fire quicker than Peter Dutton, it’s Jacinta Nampijinpa Price. Imagine a female Australian Larry Elder – Jacinta is half-aboriginal and has no time for the victim industry. Listen to her interview with Sky’s Paul Murray.

Jacinta won a Senate seat for the Northern Territory and will join the aformentioned Alex Antic in attempting to rein in the worst of the Labor/Green feelgood fuckwittery that lies ahead. Gerard Rennick and Malcolm Roberts are also still in there to speak for us.

Unfortunately we lost two strong campaigners against the covid madness. Craig Kelly and George Christensen, both ex-Liberal MPs, shifted to United Australia and One Nation respectively but failed to win their seats.

Which brings us to the big question of the election: what happened to the freedom friendly parties? In spite of the widespread resentment against both the major parties – ‘Put the majors last’ was the catchcry – many voters gave first preference to their favourite and then apparently voted as normal for Lib or Lab.

The vote for the FFPs was about half what was anticipated. This can be explained to some degree by their messages being swamped by the majors’ well-funded advertising campaigns, but there was another factor at play too. I handed out how to vote cards for the Liberal Democrats on Saturday; I was the sole party representative at my booth. Labor, Greens, and the Liberals had teams – paid or unpaid, I don’t know, but they had a presence. The FFPs simply couldn’t match it. The major parties reinforced their ads with people at the front line on election day. This show of strength was seemingly enough to sway voters who were disgruntled with the majors but uncertain about the FFPs.

The picture isn’t entirely bleak. The LibDems nearly doubled their Senate vote across the country. And the covid freakshow of the last two years has attracted rising membership. The same can be said of other FFPs as well. We in Lockdownunder still have a few good people in parliament.

2022 will be remembered as a missed opportunity, but also historic. While the support for FFPs indicated by opinion polls was not borne out, loss of support for Labor and Liberal was. Labor won on their lowest vote since 1910. Neither party attracted 40 percent of first preference votes. This is unheard of, and a start towards building a new political framework for The Great South Land.

The immediate future, though – I’m not looking forward to that.

Rod Taylor – a Nazi?

Top cast: James Garner is the man with the intelligence, Eva Marie Saint is the concentration camp survivor, and Rod Taylor – yes, he’s really a Nazi.
But he’s one of those good Nazis. The sort who say You see, Captain – we are not all barbarians.

Also in the cast – the original tv Alfred, Alan Napier. Once he started answering the Batphone, Napier’s lines were cut almost to nothing. He does better here as an Allied officer.

Dr Robert Malone on the chimp.

As I was waiting in an airport lounge to travel from USA to the UK two days ago, I saw a newsreel from CNN which was breathlessly reporting on this “threat” while displaying historic images of patients suffering from Smallpox disease. This provides a classical example of public health fearporn, in my opinion, and CNN should be reprimanded for broadcasting irresponsible propaganda – misinformation and disinformation- under the guise of journalism.

Truth versus Fearporn.
