Writing this a couple of days after the most important election in Australian history, Australians did finally find their voices, and in no uncertain manner told the neo-liberal jackals who had come storming into public life that they were finished. Why the most important election? Because Morrison was on a path to Trumpian glory. Surrounded…

And so it came to pass that truth persisted, hope survived and democracy will be restored. And so, it came to pass on the twenty-first day of May in the year 2022 that the people of Australia decided to end its decade long flirtation with what was a rotten, corrupt government and its lying leader…

Prologue: The Result It is done. The former regime under which we have lived for the last nine years is no longer in power. Despite the corporate cheerleading, despite the blatant bias and propaganda from the media, the Australian Labor Party will form the next government. All the king’s monkeys and all the king’s propagandists…

Play School not renewed for 10th season

Published by Anonymous (not verified) on Sun, 22/05/2022 - 8:06am in

The long-running Australian make-believe show will not continue into 2023, it has emerged.

The popular program, which includes dress-ups, imaginary story time and adults pretending to do a variety of different jobs, was too expensive to maintain, sources say.

“Each season was getting more expensive than the last,” one insider explained. “We were spending millions of dollars on props and marketing, and it just wasn’t sustainable. We spent $90 billion on submarines just for the promotion of one episode – it was fun while it lasted”.

He said there had been attempts to reduce costs over the years. “One of the things we did to cut spending was to get the audience to use their imaginations. So instead of building car parks, or buying enough vaccines, we just pretended to, and for the most part the audience went along with it. But it wasn’t enough”.

He said they also tried many different techniques to keep audiences entertained. “We introduced a fairytale segment called ‘Hillsong’. We taught our audience about not believing in scary monsters with our ‘Climate Change is Not Real’ section. We even gave the show’s favourite clown a bigger role. But eventually people got sick of Barnaby”.

The presenters will now be given new make-believe roles in government agencies and investment banks.

All elections are filled with the half-truths, mistruths and full-fledged lies. Victory is rarely bought on a platform of complete honesty. But the road to the current Australian federal election has been potholed by more deception than most. This is bound to happen when policy platforms are weak and rickety, leaving the opponents large scope…

Morrison dresses up as Prime Minister in desperate last-ditch attempt to save job

With voters seemingly not convinced by his efforts to dress up as a hairdresser, welder, chef, truck driver, soccer player and hundreds of other characters, a frantic Scott Morrison has told campaign staff he will pretend to be a Prime Minister today, in the desperate hope he’ll be able to keep his job.

Morrison said he was willing to play-act in the role for at least eight minutes – double the length of time he generally dresses up as a tradesperson for photo shoots.

“Today I won’t be pretending to fly an aeroplane or shear a sheep. Instead I’ll be pretending to advance the interests of the nation,” he told his staff. “Make sure there are plenty of photographers”.

Despite the move, senior Liberal Party strategists apparently warned against the stunt, saying Scott Morrison acting as a Prime Minister would not be believable to voters.
