Graphical Manipulations #145: TPP’s, Compassion, Polls, Climate, Costs And The Usual Menagerie!


In an attempt to calm the anger, and to assuage the angst Deknarf sought refuge in a bit of Zennish literature in the search for calmness and karma. Though largely unsuccessful, note to self “get off Twitter for a day or two”, and with the Zennish erudition leaving this reader somewhat confusedly bemused we settled on the following little story as nice piece of deep thought!

“Two Zen monks, Tanzan and Ekido, were travelling together down a muddy road. A heavy rain was falling. Coming around a bend, they met a lovely girl in a silk kimono and sash, unable to cross the intersection.

“Come on, girl,” said Tanzan at once. Lifting her in his arms, he carried her over the mud.

Ekido did not speak again until that night when they reached a lodging temple. Then he could no longer restrain himself. “We monks don’t go near females,” he told Tanzan, “especially not young and lovely ones. It is dangerous. Why did you do that?”

“I left the girl there,” said Tanzan. “Are you still carrying her?” (Taken from “Zen Flesh, Zen Bones” by Paul Reps)”.

This was the week in which we discovered that careful independent analysis of significant agreements was not something of high priority.

TPP Uhuh Rat

And that the term “compassionate conservatism” needed some clarification, since it appears to be a contradiction in terms. More detail Scotty?

Compassionate Coverservatism Morrison

We found that the polls, despite the Prime Winky Dill’s efforts to the contrary, were trending down Liberally, and trending up – not to Labor the point!

Panicky Rattus Politicus

It seems that even the motherland Torys of our Prime Thingy are confused with his interpretation of the term Anthropogenic Global Warming and how policies of inaction might cure some garbage believed by some 99% of scientists who know about such things.

Climate Abbott Monkeys

And, of course, that Bloody Rat, a long term distruster of those he describes as being “as flash as a Rat with a gold tooth”, couldn’t help but comment on Mr Eleventy’s discomforting pyrrhic victory.

Hockey Karma Rat

Rat also thought that the Federal Opposition were being just a bit to precious when expressing their “serious concerns” about BronnieGate. I suspect their “serious concern” might be a tad more related to the limitation of largesse by irate taxpayers.

Rort Worry Rat

And, sorry, but despite all intentions to the contrary we were unable to let “Choppergate” go without one more GM contribution. We promise, politically speaking, that there will be no more of these during the lifetime of the current parliament!

Bronny Choppers

There was some embarrassment that our Prime Winky Dill had problems with the number of points on the Commonwealth star on our flag. Perhaps he’s caught the same disease as Joe, except that it gives him problems with Seventy’s.

Six Star Rabbott

Our Erudite Rat, as is his wont, thoughtfully provided some insight into politicians and truth. Those two words that seem to contain some mutual exclusivity these days.

Eruditis Rat Truth

And finally, a new book has just come on the market. Strong sales are expected over the period to September 2016.

Abbott Trough Book

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

AFTERTHOUGHT: If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!

POSTSCRIPT: All characters appearing in this work are entirely, and amazingly, fictitious. Any resemblance to real persons, living, dead or in a zombie like state, is purely coincidental with an exceptionally high probability of being the construct of a deluded mind trying to grasp the true meaning of the political unreality of Australian politics!

Graphical Manipulations #144: Rats, Cows, Pigs! It’s A Right Menagerie! And A Missed Rabbott Missive!!


There’s a black bile rising in the throat! The eyes glaze over as a red rage threatens to burst a blood vessel or two and the anger mounts towards an explosion of vitriol and violence! And it’s only the first political headline of the day which has served to recreate, after a relatively peaceful nights sleep, and extremely grumpy old bugger!!

There are not enough expletives and turns of phrase which would remotely describe the level of anger felt about the cesspit that we call “Federal Politics”!  Finally reaching the age where one could forgo the office power politics and the visionary myopics in management positions, anticipation of a peaceful retirement of relaxation and enjoyment of a leisurely perambulation through the declining years has been rudely shattered by a bunch of self-serving scumbags totally lacking in any vision whatsoever and whose sole agenda appears to be to screw everyone who earns less than $150,000 per annum, whilst ensuring that upon their exit from Parliament their comfortable existence will be assured up until someone stuffs them into the furnace! Praise be The Gourd!! Fortunately the generous gift of half decent genes from forebears has provided Deknarf a reasonable constitution and a 120ish, 60ish blood pressure which has served well in preventing apoplexy at the height of righteous indignation, viz “self serving scumbags”!

However, at least said scumbags, provide the Graphical Manipulation opportunity – and a place to which one can venture forth on an escapist journey!

Good ole Mr Eleventy Hockey was doing his best to talk up the desire (non-existent) of increasing the GST of which Joe had no desire to contemplate raising if the blame for an increase could be laid at the Federal Government’s door. A passing of the mega-bucks you might say!

Uhuh Hockey GST Rat

The Indonesians put a spanner in the works by performing a cull on their cattle imports from Australia. Our Barnaby was naturally disappointed in a similar manner to his level of disappointment about the granting of that mine somewhere or other!

Chewin de cud

Gina Rhinehart did a delightful “poor, poor, pitiful me” piece on the ABC the other night letting us know in no uncertain terms; “who’s da mumma!!”

Reuful Gina

That Bloody Rat stepped up with his typical cynics viewpoint of the Federal Government’s Budget strategy.

Labor Loss Rat

And was also mightily impressed at Malcolm Fraudband’s firm grasp and complete control of his portfolio. It was just the Captain’s Calls that tended to blindside!

QnA Ban Rat

And of course there was Bronwyn Bishop, she of the helmeted hair, who has undertaken the difficult job of demonstrating to the dubious voter the value of providing substantial largesse to the hardworking political self-servers.

Piggy Bronwyn

The Bloody Rat lost all sense of reality when he found out that Abbott had confidence in Bronny but would put her on probation until the detritus from the fan was adequately dispersed, and the odour had faded into the background.

Probationary Rat

And Deknarf just couldn’t help himself and provided a little poem for the occasion of inappropriate largesse.

Speakers Greed Creed

In a final word on the nature of greed our Erudite Rat found what he considered to be a suitable comment.

Eruditis Greed Rat

And finally in a fit of pique over the whole smelly Bishop saga we dashed off an email of annoyance to our Prime Minister, which much to our chagrin didn’t quite make it. We however were most grateful that whilst “there was a problem we should try again – in about 30 days”! I guess that leaves time for the whole smelly deal to blow over, eh Tony? And a !@#$%^&* to you too mate!!

PM Letter

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

AFTERTHOUGHT: If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!

Graphical Manipulations #143: A Bit Of This. A Bit of That. Toads, Flags, And That Bloody Rat!


And we all thought, that with the Federal Parliament on six weeks holiday it would all quieten down and all the silliness would fade to the level of a bit of tinnitus!  Surprise!  Surprise!  There was no demise!  Idiocy, stupidity and all the lies continued apace!

We had the “Freedom Commissioner” Tim Wilson spending $77,763 in taxpayer funded expenses in his first year on the job.  Still it’s in keeping with his $372,00 salary package I guess!  And his stunning defence?  “You’d rather I sit in my office all day?” Well, no Tim.  But $14,562 on taxi fares does seem a bit extreme.  Have you ever considered walking?  It’s good exercise and you might actually get to see some of the people you’re supposed to represent.

We discovered that voters living in the electorates of the Abbott Government’s most prominent Ministers support the ABC so strongly they would be prepared to change the constitution to protect it from political interference.  Hmmm?  Maybe the kerfuffle about Q&A might be best faded into the background noise, eh Tony?  And to make it worse the Q&A panellists had the gall to “roundly criticise” our Prime Winky Dill for having the crass to ban ministers from the ABC program.  Rumour has it, that since the ban, Q&A has become more popular than ever!  I’d be calling that an “own goal”!

Some party pooper told us that the Coalition’s Direct Action Fund was likely to fall somewhat short of the Government’s promissory note, and, like most of the voting public who think, would be exhausted within 18 months.  So much for carbon reduction policy!

I could go on, but we’re bored now.  So let’s get involved with more worldly issues.  Like, for instance, that great piece of Greek brinkmanship which appears to have taken the Greeks over the edge into the austerity black hole.

Greece Economy Stuffing

Impressed we were with the WA backbenchers willingness to be briefed about AGW, but weren’t about to be lectured to by a bunch of smart-arse boffins.  We think we have the solution!

Oz Drought

Terrorism (THEY’RE COMING, FEAR, KILL, DEATH, OOOH, EEEK, JIHADI MURDERS BEHADINGS, OTHER NASTY STUFF) had a bit of a run through the week.  The toads were cognisant of the political reality.

Abbott Toad Jihadi

So we thought we’d put the fear of death into those smug little amphibians!!

Jihadi Toad

It was also noted that a right royally regal visit was on the calendar and Australia was to be blessed with a visit from the heir apparent and his good lady.  Oooooh!  I am just so beside myself with regal religiosity!!

Calm Prince Visit

Our most favoured Senate loose cannon slammed a few shots across the bow when she heard about the Shenhua Mine on the Liverpool Plains and Barnaby Joyce’s outburst of ineffectual indigence!  Even Rat was somewhat confused with the analogy?

Jacqui Tells Em

And That Bloody Rat was moved to comment on Barnaby’s commentary on same-sex marriage especially when aligned with a bit of polyamoury!

Decadent Barnaby Rat

And that led to this.  My admiration goes to the anonymous character who thunked it up and kindly stuck it on Twitter.  Says it all really!

Gay Babies

Flags!  Interesting things flags.  You can have one, we do, tucked in the cupboard for that moment when I achieve greatness and can wrap it proudly around my body in a display of patriotic fervour.  Others can have lots it appears!  Not my work either dammit!

Flag Lovers

Based on those numbers we got the feeling that something may be afoot with the Coalition and large numbers of flags, and this came to mind.

Flag Rabbott

And that led to thinking about Our Great Leader (note TWS) and that led to thinking about others thinking about Our Great Leader.

Uhuh Incompetent Abbott Rat

Our Erudite Rat felt that perhaps it was a childish view of the world that made some, not mentioning any names of course, to like lots of flags and acting in a militaristic manner.

Eruditis General Rat

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

AFTERTHOUGHT: If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!

Graphical Manipulations #142: AGW, Border Forces, Toads, Rats, Sheep And Fancy Dress!


As a microbiologist I’m a keen receiver of regular updates on things microbiological by way of ProMED emails (supported by the International Society for Infectious Disease and individual subscription). One of the more reliable (that is, not partially digested through reporters who have no scientific background) sources of information about microbiological diseases worldwide and issues related to same. You may care to have a read of this, entitled “Warm Water, Cold Reality.”

Dear Colleagues,

Increases in air and water temperatures are having profound effects on human, animal, and plant health.  The WHO’s Western Pacific Region (WPRO) cites vulnerability assessments that anticipate climate change will increase the incidence of communicable vector-borne diseases.  Increased ambient temperatures and humidity will alter vectors’ reproduction rates, biting behavior, and longevity and expand their distribution to new regions.  WPRO cites a litany of diseases that potentially will be affected by climate change: malaria, dengue, Japanese encephalitis, chikungunya, West Nile virus, lymphatic filariasis, plague, tick borne diseases (including Lyme disease and rickettsioses), and schistosomiasis.  Common in the developing countries of the global South, how soon will these diseases be challenging the health systems of the North?

Increasing temperatures will also affect what and how we eat.  The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change reports that all aspects of food security are at risk.  Climate change could alter how and where we grow crops, raise animals, and catch fish.  It will also change what we know and how we deal with food safety issues.  For example, oysters are enjoyed worldwide, but increasing water temperatures are increasing the prevalence of non-Cholera vibrios, bacteria that are a part of the natural flora of coastal marine environments globally.  The microbes have been isolated from water, sediments, and seafood including shrimp, fish, clams, and oysters.  Eating raw oysters is less appealing when you know that Vibrio vulnificus was found more frequently in the oysters (70 percent of those sampled) than in the seawater they came from (43 percent) (see reference).

Just several more reasons why I have deep concerns about Anthropogenic Global Warming and its potential effects.

Now back to unreality!! I had hoped that we’d have a stupidity respite period for the next six weeks, but alas, it was not to be! Our beloved Government provided some thirty-seven little snippets of Graphical Manipulative potential over the week. Given that this brain is severely taxed in the production of ten GMs, such overindulgent largesse was just a bit over the top! But at least there’s a couple that can be “held over” until next week. So here we go!

It was great to see the Prime Winky Dill and Peter (I’ll Get Ya Citizenship If Ya Don’t Watch Out) Dutton launch Australia’s very own “BORDER FORCE”. It took me back to the 50’s, and black and white TV, and puppets!

Border Force Dutton

The Toads were mightily impressed with decision making processes which relied on speculative information which couldn’t be used to make sensible decisions but could be used to make policy decisions!

Education Decision Toads

That Bloody Rat got off to a fine start with a bit of a chortle over Julie Bishop’s lack of concern as China indicated that coal wasn’t going to be “good” given it’s future emissions reduction plans.

China Emissions Rat

He was pleased that Barnaby Joyce and our Prime Minister Rabbott were in to water infrastructure given Rats intense interest in sewers and sewerage systems.

That Dam Rat

And he was most impressed with Senator Eric Abetz’s erudition over the issues related to polyamory – something very close to Rat’s heart.

Polyamory Rat

He was even more impressed with Barnaby Joyce when he showed that he knew that when the Master spoke the Minion must obey. Mightily impressed was Rat! Just the type of fellow that Rat would have – in a minion role of course!

Barnaby Qanda Rat

The sheeple were somewhat bemused with the Q&A issue and wondered just what the fuss was all about. They wondered whether they should all jump when they went through an open gate.

Qanda Sheeple

And our Uhuh Rat though that Scotty Morrison was stretching the hypocritical credibility factor just a little too far with regard to fessing up! A little too much pot pretending shinyness whilst calling kettle black, eh Scotty?

Uhuh Fess Up Rat

And lo and behold not satisfied with winding down, having a bit of a rest and recreation and restoring that ebullient character, what does our Prime Winky Dill do? Off he goes and plays dress up and photo opportunity time. Dear. Oh Dear!!

Dress Up Time

Which left our erudite Rat pretty much at a loss for words, but he finally dug up something which he thought might fit the bill given the absence of tigers in the world of Australian politics.

Eruditis Wildcat Rat

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

AFTERTHOUGHT: If you don’t punish politicians and their parties for lying to you, you are predetermining your treatment as a fool!

Graphical Manipulations #141: Rats, Maps, More Bloody Rats, Sheep, And Nationalistic Anthems!


What a busy, busy final week of Federal Parliament is has been, eh? And now, thankfully, the bunch of nondescript, amoral, unethical, self-indulgent, self-interested, grubs we jokingly refer to as “politicians” will pick up their nice little sinecures and retire for six weeks to their respective dens of iniquity and provide us with some respite from the continued attacks on the only remaining bastions of democratic freedom of speech, the ABC and SBS. We note that the ABC has been ably undefended by an Opposition which seems to have recently got caught up with the mob while undergoing castration. A bit of bleating, a couple of futile kicks, but that little rubber elastrator still got placed on the testes!

Essentially, in simple terms, the week went something like this. ABC’s QandA invited a Mallah idiot into the audience, who, being somewhat radical asked a question of an inflammatory nature. Which got dealt with by a Liberal Party Ciobo idiot, the one who thought that Julia Gillard should “have her throat slit”, in a similarly radical way with regard to his preference for said Mallah to be denationalised and kicked out of the country. The Mallah idiot then made the point that the Ciobo attitude made it unsurprising that people might leave the country to fight with the Jihadi’s given the personality type of the Ciobo idiot. At that moment the residual material left after intestinal digestive processes well and truly hit the fan and the Lieberal politicians went troppo at the excellent opportunity to denigrate the ABC and all who sail in it as “lefty’s” deserving only to have their “heads rolled off their bodies”. Somewhat akin to beheading as I understand it! But less painful, unless of course you consider that not having a job any more is a bit of a pain!

All in all a perfect opportunity for the Liberals, Murdoch and the IPA to further their attempts to remove any form of serious debate or inquiry from the Australian mainstream media. By the way, it took the attention away from all the other messes that the Lieberal\Neutered Puppy government is currently in! And all of that led to our erudite rat considering the assumption (or is that presumption) of innocence.

Erudite Guilt Rat

As a small side issue our Prime Winky Dill, in showing us how committed to the destruction of the evil threats imminent upon us, showed us just a little bit more than he should have.

ASIO Public Rat

But at least we now all know where not to go when travelling about in the suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne lest we be radicalised. Mind you, there’s a few yobbo pubs around Sydney and Melbourne that radicalise you as you walk through the door, but at least you only have to drape yourself with the Australian flag and yell abuse and threats at passers-by – at the moment!

Now We Know

Our mate That Bloody Rat, ever keen to pick up on the political trivia, thought that Gina Rhinehart knew how to get her hands around the neck of an economy and extract the maximum green stuff from it.

Rhinehart India Rat

He was thoroughly amused when the Greens fell over themselves to back a piece of legislation that even Labor saw was fraught with a lot of ill-tempered, at a loss, pensioners taking revenge at the next election.

Stupid Green Rat

And he couldn’t help but have a hearty snigger at the antics of our beloved Fraudbull who, as usual, was insultingly succinct with his derogatory comment. Rat was hopeful that his was of similar derogation.

Turnbull Integrity Rat

And he couldn’t help but laugh out loud when Tony (the Rabbott) Abbott got stuck into the ABC. Jeez! We just can’t have this equity and balance in free speech – can we Tony?

One Sided Rat

Our political Rat, with suitable gravitas, reminded us that the devotion of politicians to the altruistic support of the best interests of the people would never be debased by the politicisation – of anything!

Politicus Security Rat

The Sheeple, who have just recently arrived on the scene from over the hill, were suitably impressed with Rattus politicus, but were concerned that there were too many words in his statement! Especially the extra “would” that snuck in somehow!

Sheeple Propaganda

And finally, having in my younger days read “The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich”, and “Mein Kampf” (well most of it) it seemed that there were parallels between then and now.   And that lead to this.

Marching Jackboot Poem

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

Graphical Manipulations #140: Team Commitment, Toads, School Stuff, Rattiness And Bullshit!


So. Let me get this straight. At this point in time Team Australia, led by our Prime Monster Rabbott, doesn’t have a BUDGET EMERGENCY, but will be collecting everyone’s metadata, and blocking internet sites that they consider not suitable for Joe Public (I guess there’ll be a commissioner for that), is going to denationalise those who hold multiple citizenship on the say-so of one individual and is probably hoping that they can get away with doing the same to ordinary citizens given half a chance! Additionally this government of the people, but not exactly for the people, will be providing us with a National Broadband system with the speed of an arthritic sloth, developing Northern Australia as the FOODBOWL OF ASIA whilst building lots of infrastructure, and as an incidental will be making sure that wealthy householders cheating by sending their children to public schools will pay more fees than Joe Average. And, finally, just to make sure that Corporations eventually control the country and have better access to taxpayer largesse will be permitting Investor-State Dispute Settlement clauses into our Free Trade Agreements allowing foreign corporations to sue the government should they make laws which damage their commercial interests. If that doesn’t scare the pants off you then you’re either pantless, or most of the carryings on of this government have gone in one ear and out the other without disturbing any brain cells. One can only look at the Australian voter with wonderment – and an overwhelming urge to consult the psychiatry handbook on the identifying features of mass ignorance!

Ahhhh! Ignorance! Consideration of that word leads to a bit of synaethesia and a greenish tinge.

Pension Cuts

The toads were impressed that Tony Abbott was taking the weight off his Cabinet by ensuring that they weren’t overwhelmed by lots of legalistic gobbledegook.

Citizenship Toads

Our Ministrator for Education Christopher (Fixit) Pyne seemed to be prominent in the news and therefore worthy of a mention.

Education Pyne

And he was also quick to ensure that those wealthy parents, and potential Liberal voters, wouldn’t have their noses put out of joint by the Government taking additional money from them. Hey! It’s only a suggestion, yeah?

Uhuh School Rat

That Erudite Rat felt that Allan Bennett put the whole business pretty much in perspective.

Erudite Education Rat

Not to be outdone, that Bloody Rat popped up to put his particular perspective on the antics of the political elites. He was pleased that Tony was warm and comfortable about Indonesia.

Abbott Stop Rat

Pleased that Malcolm Turnbull was comfortable with the Pope’s encyclical being given great weight.

Great Weight Rat

Rat was rightfully concerned that Australian’s optimism was down in the dumps and such a dim outlook might be considerably improved by replacing the dimmer switch which appears to be failing to function to specifications.

Rabbott Dimmer Rat

And our Political Rat (anonymously of course as is won’t by those politicians who speak “off the record” to the media) felt that in terms of un-cuddlyness, George Brandis was not wanting!

Political Brandis Rat

And all of the going’s on over the week has only served to put extreme stress on our measuring equipment. It’s hoped that things will quieten down a tad over the remainder of the winter of our discontent!

The Bullshit Meter

And there you have it . . . . . . . .!

Graphical Manipulations #139: Payments, Rats, Rabbottspeak, Jihadi Quokkas, Toads And Gourdliness!


Flabbergasted (adjective): astonished, astounded, confounded, dumbfounded, non-plussed, overwhelmed, speechless, staggered, stunned, surprised, thunderstuck! Yep! All of those! So our Government appears to be willing to pay criminal dealers in death, low life, disgusting, immoral, purveyors of inhumanity, that’s people smugglers to us, taxpayer’s money to turn their boat full of asylum seekers back for the payment of US$5,000 per crewman? I suppose that there will be lots of return trips by people smuggler boats – will that be classified as “double dipping”? One also wonders when there will be more “crewmen” on a boat than asylum seekers!

It behoves me to congratulate this Lieberal/Neutered Puppy Government. So. Congratulations! Until now I had thought that you had truly reached the absolute bottom of the cesspit in your incompetence, crassness, self-serving, nationalistic behaviour, but you have truly found even greater depths in the cesspit that you can descend to by condoning the payment of money to those who you describe as murderous criminals! What indescribably disgusting people you truly are!!

And that brought us to this.

Go Away Pay

And introduced us to the latest addition to the fleet guarding our frontiers from the incursion of those evilly criminal people smugglers.

HMAS ATM

Our Erudite Rat thought that he might have an appropriate quotation for the moment.

Erudite Rat Shame

And our political rat was impressed with the succinct nature of the hooky, crooky quote!

Politicus Hook Rat

That Bloody Rat thought that in creativity our people smugglers have worked out how to “have it both ways”!

Hook Crook Rat

And while not giving a stuff about windfarms he was on the Rabbott’s wavelength with regard to things that had potential health impacts.

Rat Abbott Windfarms

It was thought that there had been some omissions from the text of Prime Minister Rabbott’s intro to Regional Summit to Counter Violent Extremism, so attempts have been made to reconstruct the entire message.

Rabbott Speak

Which led, unnaturally, to concerns about the increasing extremism in Rottnest Island quokkas, intent on pursuing their own version of religious reality. This from their spokesquokka Setonix Brachyurus Daesh!

Jihadi Quokka

The toads were somewhat pleased with the most recent Morgan Poll which seemed to indicate that the Australian populace might, finally, be waking up to the political reality of a Lieberal/Neutered Puppy government.

Poll Toads

And after approaching the fount of all wisdom, and beseeching a few words of wiseness, his Gourdliness spake thus;
