Graphical Manipulations #83: Pogroms, Harshness, Revelations, And An Interruptive Rat!

GOSH!  It certainly has been a revelationary week this week.  As we trundle in our tumbril to our fate with “Madame Guillotine of the Budget” there’s been so many revelations that even God must be feeling a little peeved that he’s being outdone in, what is essentially, his business.  We also appear to have had a lot of political “falling upon swords”, a unique affliction (apparently in those of a Liberal bent) caused apparently by a severe dose of ICAC, not to be confused with Ipecac.  The latter being recommended for those who find all of the NO Coalition’s political shiftiness indigestible and are in urgent need of a thorough purging.

NB: For those readers who are not of Oz, ICAC is the Independent Commission Against Corruption, a thing mightily feared by the amoral dishonests amongst us.

So, leaving aside the hoo haa over the Packer-Gygnell media frenzy what little snippets have attracted the attention?  We were pleased to see that our Prime Embarrassment was keen to support the insupportable;

Brothers in Arms

At this point The Rat raised the point that our very own Malcolm Turnbull was ever ready to defend the indefensible with a little semantics on the true meaning of the word “harsh”.  Malcolm!  You bush lawyer you!

Harsh Turnbull Rat

The Institute of Public Affairs also revealed, as many had imagined, that “they were in charge”.  Not Murdoch, nor Gina, or the bloody government, but them!  And you had better bloody well get used to it;

Not So Faceless Men

Back came The Rat to point out that there was a little lost revelation with regard to $25,000 and our Prime Embarrassment.  How embarrassing;

Lost Donation Rat

And also that the sword was still up to no good within the Liberal ranks;

Slush Fund Rat

Rat also thought that Scotty’s mega monster super agency was an excellent consolidation of bureaucracies which just needed a suitably imposing unpronouncable title;

Morrison Bureaucracy Rat

PS:  We seem to have lost an ‘n’ somewhere.  Ah well that’s not quite as bad as losing the sea border between two countries I guess!

We were drawn to the ‘oops’ photo of Mathias Cormann and our very own Mr Eleventy showing their strong support for the tobacco lobby whilst recuperating after a difficult budgetary slash and burn operation.  What was needed was a nice bottle of 1959 Penfolds Grange to add a bit of privilege to the afternoon;

Thats Sorted Then

And then Joe had to go and spoil it all by stretching credulity into the realms of fanciful incredibility;

Hockey Pay Freeze

Which reminded The Rat of Tony Abbott’s response to another politician pay freeze undertaken by some fellow called Rudd;

Tonys Pay Freeze Rat

All of these led to the revelation that, finally, like decaying lichen falling from the face of a decrepit and defunct building, the NO Coalition mask had finally crumbled to reveal the rottenness of what lay beneath;

The Mask Is Off

And that led inevitably to the revelation that “Hope, Reward, Opportunity”, apart from being the wrong way round, were, sadly, just make-up, adornment to the mask making it all the more attractive to the gullible;

Whos the Jackass

And there you have it!

Afterthought:  This NO Coalition Government is trashing the good standing of Australia.  It cares little about its people in its fanatical pursuit of ultra-conservative ideology.  It is using the weapons of minority xenophobia, the secret fears and uncertainty of the general public and blatant propaganda, aided by a complaisant media, to turn this country into something is has never been – bigoted, racist, xenophobic, selfish, self-indulgent, self-obsessed, uncaring and a disgrace to all those things that have made Australia a great country! Tolerance, mateship, community, fairness, honesty and a love of freedom in both speech and expression!

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, al la NO Coalition!  We can only gaze upon such greatness with wonderment!

    Excellent GMs, yet again, Deknarf. The Liberal’s spin doctors have been working their butts off to make this budget appear to be our duty to love & embrace instead of it being a load of codswallop. As Clive Palmer et al say “What budget emergency?”


    • deknarf says:

      Thanks Joy, A constructed budget emergency to serve the NO Coaliars agenda!


      • joy cooper says:

        Trouble is the RW troll voters believe the LNP garbage. Wait till their hip pocket nerve gets a pummelling. Thing is they are so one-eyed they will make all the excuses they can think of to exonerate their beloved conservative ratbags.

          Time will tell! If it’s nasty enough those whose minds are blinded will be illuminated by their hip pocket pain! ;-))


  2. Ah D. You’ve done it again! Great post, nice and sharp – like the point at the top of ‘NO-dough’ Joe’s head. Love to stay and chat but my Turnbull Tumbril is double parked.
    Love ya work,
    Matty Cormann
